Carpe Diem Theme Week (5) (7) The Eighth Ray, or the ultimate path to ascension.

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at this final episode of our 5th Carpe Diem Theme Week in which we have explored the meaning and ideas of Ascension and the Ascended Masters. A controversial idea I think, but it was a joy to bring this Theme Week to you. I do understand that for several of you this Theme Week wasn't inspiring, but well ... you are all free to participate, no obligations ... It was really wonderful to step out of the box and I hope you did appreciate it.

Today we will look at the so called "Eight Ray", or the final path to Ascension. It's not a circumstance that there is an eight ray (or path), because eight (like the music scale) means resonating on a higher level and it is the number for the eight chakra, just above your head. Eight is the number of Christ Consciousness, because Christ overcame death and entered into the next dimension. Jesus is also known as Krishna, but also as one of the Ascended Masters.

The Chohan of the "Eight Ray" the path to Ascension is called Lord Maha Chohan and is the embodiment of the Holy Spirit.

Lord Maha Chohan
As the Representative of the Holy Spirit, the Maha Chohan embodies the white light of all the rays and teaches the sevenfold balance of the rays of the Seven Mighty Elohim, which in turn manifest upon the brow of the initiate as a crown of crystal light when that God-mastery of the seven rays is reached.

The Maha Chohan is a very present help to all who call to him. Because of his pledge to all mankind “I am keeping the flame for you until you are able,” this truly Great Lord is called the Keeper of the Flame. He is the endower of Christ-mastery through the disciplines of right choice and right action—patterned after the eightfold path of Lord Gautama Buddha, which parallels the path taught and demonstrated by Jesus Christ.

The Maha Chohan is the representative of the Holy Spirit. The one who holds this office in hierarchy represents the Holy Spirit of the Father-Mother God, of Alpha and Omega, to the evolutions of this planet and to the elemental kingdom. The retreat of the Maha Chohan, the Temple of Comfort, is located on the etheric plane with a focus in the physical at the island of Sri Lanka, where the flame of the Holy Spirit and the flame of Comfort are anchored. His twin flame is Pallas Athena, Goddess of Truth.

Maha Chohan means “Great Lord,” and the Maha Chohan is the Great Lord of the seven chohans, the director of the seven chohans of the rays. He is an adept on each of the seven rays, which merge into the pure white light of the Holy Spirit. With the seven chohans, he initiates our souls in preparation to receive the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, spoken of in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11.

Since the Spirit of God infuses nature and man as the life-giving essence of the sacred fire, the representative of the Holy Spirit must be qualified to inter-penetrate all substance through the diffusion of his consciousness and also to draw forth the flame that sustains life in man and nature through the vocalization of his consciousness.

Christ Consciousness
Truly, the key to Christhood through loving obedience to Father and Son is fulfilled in the disciple’s acceptance of Jesus’ calling to be a mediator of the Word and Work of the Lord. Mirroring His consciousness that all might see His reflected image, the disciple is readying himself to receive the chakra initiations of the Holy Spirit given by the hand of the Maha Chohan through the Seven Chohans according to the degrees of the seven rays.

And for those who have the understanding of the Inner Light, we will say that the bestowal of the nine gifts is, by definition, the transfer of the initial matrix of the power of the three-times-three which the disciple must learn to wield, enhancing it through the balanced threefold flame and the science of the spoken Word.

The Seven Rays, the embodiment of Ascension and the Ascended Masters

As I created this episode I immediately thought back to our Tarot month, back in 2013, in that month we explored the divinity of the Tarot cards and we found that divinity. The same goes for this Theme Week "Ascension" ... the Ascended Masters are guiding us through our life, as the Holy Spirit does, and that ... brings the idea that the Ascended Masters are all creatures of our Creator to help us to bring our life goals to reality.

It was a tough week, not only through the heat here in The Netherlands, but to try to explain this Ascension idea to you without pushing ... it was a joy to create this Theme Week and I hope you all did like it.

This last episode of our Theme Week is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 28th at noon (CET). Have fun!
