What can be accomplished on Earth even in mundane activites of your daily living without CONCENTRATION, from the smallest task of learning a recipe for your kitchen fare to the greatest dexterity of technique which produces lovely music, to the greatest development of science, to the magnificent perfection of the educator, preacher and statesman? If there is not concentration, there is only mediocrity, only the bare surface is scratched. However, those who determine to rise above the masses take one facet of living and masterfully develop it, deciding within themselves to excel at least along one line of expression. So, they dedicate themselves to this end, consecrating their lives, attention and endeavors, their time and substance, all to achieve this one definite purpose.
According to the concentration of those energies is their development, is their mastery, is their efficacy. How often is it said of someone in the world of form that he is Jack of all trades but master of none! Looking as I do both in my capacity as Elohim, the All-Seeing-Eye of God, and my activities with the Karmic Board, I see so much that is just at the point of being precipitated into actual manifestation. Then suddenly the concentration is dissipated, the attention is drawn away from that which has been deliberately designed and actually begun to be lowered into physical form. Thus the once desired manifestation is abandoned before it can actually appear here.
After We had looked into the beauty and perfection of the divine design for this planet thru the current and ray of the Elohim of Purity, what could come next but concentration, the drawing of energy and concentrating it around those convex rays which had been established as the form of the Earth? We had to concentrate light substance to make the planet solid enough to be able to hold sea, land and general physical form. If We had proceeded thru those first four steps, the WILL TO DO, the PERCEPTION as to what should be done, the joy of serving in LOVE, humble enough to do it God's way in PURITY, and then had refused to CONCENTRATE upon the task until the planet finally began to revolve upon its axis, until Virgo and the beings of nature had perfected it, until Amaryllis had experimented with nine hundred springs, what would have happened? There would have been no Earth! Yet, even you who are today the maximum development of concentration in the West, so far as the student body is concerned, you have only touched the fringe of following things thru to manifestation!
It is law, actual scientific law, that what you begin can be accomplished when it is in agreement with God's plan to bring perfection forth, whether it be healing, precipitation, financial freedom, eternal youth, the restoration of a limb--it can be done--but the stick-to-it-iveness which is such an important activity of my ray and the qualification of the energy of my life is required to produce these.
Now, what are the obstacles which are encountered in the unascended state that delay your endeavors at instantaneous precipitation? They are mostly discouragement and doubt. When that upon which you work and which comes from the seeming invisible does not appear according to the outer mind's reckoning of a time limit, sometimes the project is abandoned just as it is ready to come thru the veil into the physical appearance world.
I have seen men and women on the verge of great financial mastery stop working on their project just within an hour of receiving their financial freedom! I have seen individuals working in Retreats draw currents for healing over quite a period of time. Then because that healing seemed not to completely manifest quickly enough for them, they wholly abandoned their work just five minutes short of a cosmic manifestation! Often such a manifestation if it had been sustained in faith and constancy would have revealed much truth to the consciousness of the race as a whole and would have been of great help to them. The invisible realm is almost filled with uncompleted prayers, with beautiful forms which have never been brought into outer manifestation.
How many of you, I know, for I see with the All-Seeing-Eye, how many of you just during these addresses have decided upon some pattern to manifest, have begun to build it and have already abandoned your project? Those patterns are floating in the Causal Body forcefield of this group and will be dissipated because of the lack of your attention which feeds your life into them, unless you pick them up again and either complete them or return them to the unformed thru the etherealizing power of the violet transmuting flame. If you do not reclaim them, your pattern may be picked up and completed by some magnetic lifestream in the outer world and that other individual then will be the beneficiary of all your work!
Beloved, sometimes people speak of strokes of luck, usually great flashes of financial relief and release which they suddenly receive. Sometimes this comes about because often another individual has worked for years upon some project, building a momentum of constructively qualified energy thereby, only to suddenly cut the strings and break the line of concentration and attention upon his work. This allows that picture, pattern or form and momentum to be loosed into the atmosphere to be picked up mentally by some other lifestream at the last minute of its preparation, just before it physically manifests. Then that one reaps where someone else has sown! As a matter of fact, there is a man right here in your city of Philadelphia who utilizes the benefits of this very law of which I speak and thru it he reaps where others have sown. In so doing he breaks no law because it is like the unclaimed money in many banks which simply lays there, particularly in the Chancery Courts of England. If no one wants it, some alert lifestream might just as well claim it for use.
I implore you, you who decide upon some pattern and plan of manifestation, follow it thru! Follow it thru! Follow it thru! Concentrate upon your design for precipitation until you have brought it into fulfillment. Rhythmically work upon your project but not for long hours at a time so that you become so tense and filled with anxiety that you neutralize your endeavors.
You have been told that when We created the planets of this system We came in rhythm and it was the power of my ray of concentration which drew and coalesced the actual form of this Earth. After all, what are mankind's bodies but forms of concentrated energy? This energy as you know is drawn forth from the heart of your Presence. Once you have determined to bring forth some constructive manifestation follow thru in the name of God! Follow thru in the name of God! Stop sitting by the wayside resting when you are on the verge of victory!
Do you know the concentration it takes to bring forth an invention, to bring forth a scientific discovery to the race? Do you know the concentration it took to hold the vision for America? Many of you shared that vision and were a part of the heart-center which held that vision for the others.
Now, concentration and consecration are almost one and the same, beloved ones, because first of all whatever you are going to do that will amount to anything requires the consecration of your life and that you have not understood deeply enough. It is the consecration of all of your energies to the manifestation of something which will give you mastery over this world of form. Do not feel that to desire mastery over financial lack or mastery over appearances of physical distress in the restoration of health is selfish because the full-gathered momentum of your mastery becomes your gift to the consciousness of the race at large.
So long ago that I can scarcely remember the time I learned the power of concentration which later made it possible for Me to give to you your planet Earth. Who knows but that even within this room today there may be an Elohim for tomorrow's world? I see several for whom it could be possible.
As you are listening to Me today from Archangel Raphael's kingdom, whose specialized quality is consecration, We have connected a beam of energy with that portion of my ray which is anchored within the forehead of every incarnate lifestream on the planet today. This is the focus in every physical form where the true inner sight once functioned freely but this clear inner sight has been dimmed by mankind's misues of energy all thru the ages, creating shadows in the consciousness by his use of discordantly qualified thought, feeling, spoken word and deed. As this shadowed substance increased thru many many embodiments, it gradually became what is now known as the human veil.
This is simply an accumulation of too slowly vibrating energy which has formed within the brain structure itself, this denser substance shutting off from physical sight the presence of the cosmic beings, ascended masters, angels and the perfection of the realms which abide above this physical appearance world. Thru this service which I AM rendering here today to you, I AM also endeavoring to clear the inner sight as much as possible, particularly of the mystic, of the metaphysician and those who have stepped out of the consciousness of the masses, desiring a clearer concept of truth. I AM also giving this assistance today to the great leaders of the orthodox channels of religion, endeavoring to give them as much understanding of the great law as is necessary to convince them that We are and that We are ready and willing to assist mankind by offering the full power and pressure of our light and feelings of mastery over everything human, thus helping them to find their way back to the complete freedom which God intended them to enjoy from the beginning.
As some of you know, I AM also the Elohim of music and so my activities and talents are quite diversified. Thru the recent release of your marvelous decrees and lovely songs which you have directed right into the Compound itself, We now have one hundred fifty individuals who have come out from that unhappy realm. Personally I would like to congratulate you on your use of music in this instance and for this purpose, as music does not create the antagonisms in their feels, which antagonisms I hope you will never have to see! These lifestreams will now enter the Halls of Karma this Saturday evening at the same time the ceremony at Shamballa takes place.
As a result of your service tonight just as I entered your forcefield We received a merciful grant for the benefit of the incoming children. One hundred thousand of those who would otherwise have been blind will be born with sight, fifty thousand of those who would have been deaf will hear, fifty thousand of those who would not have been able to speak will now have the gift of speech and, almost the greatest of all to Me, two hundred thousand of those who would have been mentally ill will come into physical birth with their minds balanced and sane. I AM so grateful to all who have made this possible! (Audience arose and stood for a few moments in silent gratitude.)
