The heritage of good and evil in the consciousness of these egos might be mitigated, you might say, by the pressures of light in the consciousness of the mother during the period of gestation and the early earth life.
These individuals were born. The parents of these laggards performed one of the greatest sacrifices know in any galaxy, taking into their physical bodies, consciousness and homes, these individuals whose radiation was such that it has drawn the earth to this present condition today. Now, what happened? Here is the point where you left the I AM Consciousness, beloved ones. After birth, when these egos grew to a certain age, the Holy Christ Self had to release a certain amount of karma, with opportunity for redemption. However, instead of redeeming it, they yielded to its malign influences and began to create secretly in thought and in feeling forms of an impure and distorted nature. These began to spread into the atmosphere, just like smog over a city and were picked up by the sensitive consciousnesses of the race. Previously these were used to draw only beauty from the Presence and externalize divine perfection. While the temptation could have been repelled and the mind not allowed to accept or entertain those thought patterns and feelings, some among the race, in secret, opened their consciousness to those thought patterns and played with their feelings until finally there began to be externalized imperfections of form.
... The first thought a man had that was imperfect and impure, energized by a secret feeling, was a cause and that, sent out into the atmosphere created an effect. Like a boomerang, the effect came back into the consciousness and made a record. That record was the beginning of an impression. Energy sent out in a certain manner, returned to affect the lifestream who had sent if forth and there began to be created a shadow between the I AM Presence and the human consciousness. Endeavoring to contact the Presence, the individual would find these 'tramp' thoughts and feelings flowing through that line of contact until more and more imperfect was the conscious use of them. Finally, those centers got completely away from the control of the ego and acted independently. Anything the individual saw, registered on the mind, was energized by feelings and manifested. Acting independent of the Presence, thought and feeling created most of the conditions in which you are functioning today.
Through the ages, blessed children, the creation of thoughtforms and the energizing of those forms by feeling as well as the action that follows through the flesh, has built an etheric consciousness. The soul is the accumulated consciousness resulting from your experimental use of life, action and reaction. The tendencies, habits and nature of your soul are determined by the ways in which you have used life through the centuries and what life has returned to you age after age. Your soul endures in embodiment and between embodiments. Your soul will continue to live until it is transmuted by the flame in your heart and there is no longer this shadow self that thinks and feels apart from the Christ. Your soul lives through every personality (embodiment) that you use. Today you have a name; you were born into a family; you live, if fortunate, approximately threescore and ten years, and then you 'pass away' as a personality. That personality is no more, but the soul of you in the etheric garment, influences each personality which you become in each succeeding incarnation. If you were to look at an unbroken stream of one hundred of your earth lives, you would find that the soul was more or less the same through each personality.
Now we have to undo the effect of millions and millions of these embodiments in the matter of a few short years! We are endeavoring to teach you to enter again into the authority of your own I AM Consciousness, drawing primal life and getting directions from your Presence. You must learn to silence the cravings of your lower bodies; the etheric rumblings; the human tendencies. Then, in the mastery and control of your own life, you must begin to build anew as your God Self would have you do, until there is not two - the soul and God - but God alone. Thus are you reinstated as the I AM Consciousness; master of thought, feeling and action; absolutely nonrecordant to the impressions of the human selves of others...
Beloved ones, contagion caused the fall of this earth. Contagion of doubts, fears, impurity.... is a force which you must diligently prevent, if you intend to be master by the power of your Godhead. You are in a constant sea of moving energy, besides your own accumulation of the soul. Every paper you read; every piece of music you hear; every picture you look upon that registers in the mind and which the feeling animates, adds to the accumulation of your limitations ...
What is the greatest avenue of teaching? Example! You are the guardians who offered to protect those who 'fell from grace', not only did they 'fall' but you have gone after them!
