  Dear Cass

  Good grief! We have so much work to do, even if only exposing 
  ordinary and verifiable truths and lies.

  Kind regards

  When the waterfall ceases to flow, move on, for hierarchy will not be

  Olcott founded the Theosophical Society. They were directed to do so 
  by two eastern Adepts or Masters, Morya and Koot Hoomi.(1) Besides 
  its three official objects (1a), the mission of the Theosophical 
  Society was to prepare the world for the coming of a great spiritual 
  teacher, expected in the last quarter of the 20th century.(2) 
  > Annie Besant, Blavatsky's successor as leader of the Theosophical 
  Society, and Charles Webster Leadbeater, mediator between the Adepts 
  and the Theosophical Society, were directed to implement this project 
  fifty years in advance.(3) The young Jiddu Krishnamurti was chosen 
  and trained to be the vehicle through whom the World Teacher Lord 
  Maitreya would reveal himself.(4) The Order of the Star in the East 
  was the worldwide organization to draw together all those who 
  expected the coming of this great teacher. Krishnamurti became its 
  Head. Not all Theosophists were in agreement with these developments.
  (5) Until about 1927 all went relatively well(6) and starting on 
  December 28, 1925 Krishnamurti was overshadowed a few times by Lord 
  Maitreya.(7) Krishnamurti and other Theosophists declared the project 
  successful,(8) others were of the opposite opinion.(9) From about 
  1927 on Krishnamurti decided to go his own way and irrevocably 
  dissociated himself from the project by

  > Through Theosophists Cyril Scott and David Anrias, the Adepts 
  communicated their evaluation of the project and declared it an 
  almost complete failure.(10) Krishnamurti caused so much confusion 
  in the ranks of the Theosophists, that the Theosophical Society was 
  disqualified as the spearhead of the work of the Adepts. 
  Nevertheless, some Theosophists, such as C. Jinarajadasa and Geoffrey 
  Hodson, were still in contact with the Adepts(11), and They kept a 
  continuing interest in the affairs of the Theosophical Society.(12) 
  Furthermore the Adepts worked also with Alice Bailey, which was not 
  successful (13), and with Nicholas and Helena Roerich, which was.(14)
  > Three months after Krishnamurti had dissolved the Order of the 
  Star, the crash on the New York Stock Exchange happened. This event 
  was the starting point of an unprecedented disastrous sixteen-year-
  cycle of economic depression, militarism, fascism and war, 
  culminating in the Holocaust and the use of the atomic bomb. This 
  was no coincidence. One of its main causes was the earlier mentioned 
  confusion amongst many advanced souls. They were not able anymore 
  to keep the forces of darkness at bay.(15) 
  > In the summer of 1930, the Adept Saint Germain approached Guy 
  Ballard, an American mining engineer with an interest in the occult, 
  with the request to become messenger for the Adepts. Ballard wrote 
  Unveiled Mysteries under the name Godfre Ray King and founded the "I 
  AM" Movement.(16) Through Ballard the Adepts gave the revelations 
  deemed necessary for the Age of Aquarius, which originally were 
  intended to be given through Krishnamurti.(17) These revelations 
  included original teachings about mantra yoga, the divine self or the 
  I AM Presence, and the initiation of the ascension.(18) In the 
  1930s the "I AM" Movement was very successful.(19) Because of Guy 
  Ballard's passing in 1939, a string of lawsuits and bad publicity, 
  the movement experienced a setback. Guy Ballard's wife, Edna Ballard, 
  succeeded him.
  > In 1944 the Adept the Maha Chohan, the chief of El Morya and 
  Kuthumi, contacted "I AM" member Geraldine Innocente.(20) In April 
  1952 she founded anonymously the Bridge to Freedom to spread some 
  teachings by "Thomas Printz," pseudonym for El Morya.(21) 
  > Mark Prophet, who was associated with the Bridge to Freedom, was 
  contacted by El Morya in the early 1950s. The Adepts directed him to 
  found The Summit Lighthouse, which he did on August 8, 1958. This 
  organization, now also known as Church Universal and Triumphant, has 
  been a very successful organization in spreading the revelations for 
  the New Age of Aquarius.(22) Its current head is Elizabeth Clare 
  Prophet, who was contacted in the spring of 1961 by El Morya to join 
  The Summit Lighthouse in order to be trained as a messenger.(23) She 
  became its head in 1973 after the passing of Mark Prophet to whom she 
  was married.(24) Among her students she is also known as Guru Ma or 
  just Mother. In 1997 the organization lost its protection from El 
  Morya (24a) and unfortunately, in late 1998, Prophet was diagnosed 
  with Alzheimer's disease and soon after stopped transmitting messages 
  from the Masters.
  > Recent offshoots of Church Universal and Triumphant are The 
  Temple of The Presence founded by Carolyn and Monroe Shearer; Shangra-
  la by Kim Michaels; New Wisdom University by Marsha Covington; and 
  The Hearts Center by David Lewis. All were members of Prophet's 
  organization and claim to be contacted by the Masters to inaugurate 
  new Ascended Master organizations. (25) 
  > The revelations given through the Ballards and the Prophets on 
  one side, and the philosophy of Krishnamurti (and others) on the 
  other side might both lead to either the beginning of a 
  transformation of already existing civilizations like the Judeo-
  Christian and the Indic, both of which might be stimulated to new 
  levels of intellectual and spiritual development, or--and this 
  probably being the case with Krishnamurti's teachings--to the birth 
  of a completely new, though deeply flawed, religion and civilization.

  we found in America the man [H.S. Olcott] to stand as leader... .

  and wonderful endowments... . We sent her to America, brought them

  Ascension, at the close of the last century, thereby becoming 
  incorporeal Ascended Masters. And as Blavatsky has written--referring 
  to other saints, that, when "unburthened of their terrestrial 
  tabernacles, their freed souls, henceforth united forever with their 
  spirits, rejoin the whole shining host, which is bound together in
  > one spiritual solidarity of thought and deed, and called 
  the `anointed,' "--the same glad tidings could be told, not only 
  about these two illustrious Masters, but also about many other brave 
  souls who followed them. [H.P. Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled (Pasadena CA: 
  Theosophical University Press, 1976 [1877]), II, p. 159].For 
  practical purposes the difference between an Unascended Master and an 
  Ascended one is not very great. Both can work in the physical as well 
  as in the spiritual realm and both have a wide array of occult powers 
  at their command to guide Their pupils and help mankind. The 
  difference is that an Unascended Master has its base of operations in 
  a physical body and an Ascended Master in a spiritual body. To 
  dismiss the latter as spooks, because They do not conform to one's 
  idea of flesh-and-blood Masters, is to deny oneself the great wisdom 
  coming from the 'anointed' or Ascended Masters. [Blavatsky wrote 
  about the concept of Nirmanakaya: "As a Nirmanakaya,
  > however, the adept leaves behind him only his physical body, and 
  retains every other "principle" save the Kamic, for he has crushed 
  this out for ever from his nature during life, and it can never 
  resurrect in his post-mortem state. Thus, instead of going into 
  selfish bliss, he chooses a life of self-sacrifice, an existence 
  which ends only with the life-cycle, in order to be enabled to help

  so, but besides a large and accessible literature ready to men's

  courses. And there crossed my path a being of Light that I had never 
  heard of or seen before. But the moment I saw him, I knew him. It was 
  the Ascended Master El Morya... . Morya said to me `I have need of a 
  female messenger. Go to Washington and I will train you through Mark 
  Prophet. If you pass your initiations, Saint Germain will come and 
  anoint you as messenger for the
  > Ascended Masters.'" Elizabeth Clare Prophet, "I'm Stumping for 
  the Coming Revolution in Higher Consciousness," Audio-tape no. A7945, 
  (Corwin Springs MT: The Summit Lighthouse, 1979). Return to 
  Text 24. The History of the Summit Lighthouse (Livingston MT: 
  Church Universal and Triumphant, 1994), p. 4. Return to Text 
  24a. El Morya said: "I, El Morya Khan, Chief of the Darjeeling 
  Council, hereby announce the removal of the thread that originates 
  from my mantle to the heart of the messenger to your hearts for the 
  holding of the balance of your lifestreams. The dispensation of this 
  thread, which is a thread of protection, was made possible because of 
  the codes of conduct established and sponsored by me in the past. 
  Your merit for intercession will now be based upon your own decree 
  momentum, your devotion to your God Presence and your service to 
  mankind. May you pass every test!" Read by Elizabeth Clare Prophet 
  at a staff meeting on May 13, 1997.
