Ascended Master Saint Germain, September 21, 2008 through Kim Michaels.


I am indeed Saint Germain. I hold the Flame of Freedom for the earth. But what exactly does that mean? It means that I have become completely and utterly one with the God Flame of Freedom. And I have vowed to radiate that Flame of Freedom to this planet for the next cycle of the Aquarian Age. Thus, my beloved, I have earned the title of the God of Freedom for the earth, as I have become one with that God flame. Yet, I prefer not to use this title, as it can easily be misunderstood and mistaken by human beings as an excuse for building idolatry. And thus, I would speak, in the beginning of this discourse, about idolatry. For indeed, idolatry is one of the main lessons that humankind was meant to overcome during the Piscean Age.

And what they have done instead is, that they have built an even greater idolatry of Jesus, who came to set all people free from idolatry. Not only the idolatry of self but especially the idolatry of the fallen beings on this planet, those who are entirely trapped in the duality consciousness, because they have become completely blinded by their own egos. And thus, they firmly believe the illusions of the ego, believe those illusions to be an absolute, undeniable and unquestionable truth. They have the ultimate idolatry of having elevated a lie to a truth, and thereby thinking that by adhering to the “absolute truth,” they have elevated themselves to some ultimate status compared to other human beings.

Idolatry is the veil of ignorance, the veil of illusions, that keeps the majority of the population trapped in the illusion, that they need an elite to stand between themselves and God. Was this not what Jesus challenged, when he challenged the scribes and the Pharisees and the temple priests and money changers—who had set themselves up as an elite between the people and their God, perpetuating the illusion, the lie, that people were not free to go within their own hearts and find God directly, but they could contact God only through the outer religion and its priesthood?


Idolatry in spiritual organizations
This is the ultimate lie, that must be overcome before the Golden Age of Aquarius can begin to unfold. You will, if you take an honest look at many spiritual organizations, see this idolatry. Even the idolatry that the messenger can stand between you and the ascended masters, between you and your I AM Presence, between you and God. It is necessary for the students in the present age to overcome this idolatry, to be willing to look at it in yourselves. For some of you are called to enter spiritual organizations in order to demonstrate, that one can be a student of the ascended masters without being trapped in idolatry. And although your examples may be ignored, nevertheless the example is given, and thus the opportunity to make a choice is there. Which it would not have been if there had been no one who had dared to go beyond the idolatry.

Truly, those who are the most advanced students are those who are not concerned about dualistic appellations, such as advanced and non-advanced, but who are simply looking for the beam in their own eye, realizing that it has no meaning to compare yourself to others. For it is only a matter of comparing whether you have purified your own consciousness of the elements of the duality consciousness. And if you have not, then you look at them and you use our teachings to go beyond them. And indeed, this is the flaw that you see in those who are trapped in idolatry. For inevitably they believe that although they can clearly see the faults in others, they do not need to look for that beam in their own eye.

Yet it is an inevitable law of God, that if you see any fault in any other human being, you have that same fault in your own eye—or you would not be able to see it in others. And thus, if you keep focusing on the splinter in the eye of your brother, then you will only reinforce your own self-idolatry and therefore refuse to learn the lesson you were meant to learn by being in a particular organization.

You get the messenger you deserve, uou get the guru you deserve. Or you get a guru who is willing to outpicture the particular flaws that you need to see in yourself. And thus, if you see them only in the guru, but refuse to see them in yourself, well, then you have failed the opportunity. But nevertheless, it will be an opportunity for the planet to rise higher, as those who refuse to look at their own consciousness will then go elsewhere, and we can move on with raising this planet beyond that consciousness of the fallen beings and their self-idolatry of thinking they know better than God.


Idolatry and the economic crisis
Why do I choose to start talking about idolatry? Well, is it not because it is precisely idolatry that is the central problem in the current economic crisis? What have you seen perpetuated by the press and the media, by government officials, by leaders in various economic organizations such as the Federal Reserve or big banks? Well, my beloved, is it not the consciousness that certain organizations, companies and institutions are “too big to fail,” and thus the government must step in and prop up those colossuses, so that they do not tumble?

What is this, if not idolatry? And the underlying truth here is that it is the idolatry of the people, perpetuated throughout the Piscean Age and earlier, that they cannot exist without the power elite of fallen beings. This, my beloved, is precisely the problem that you see on earth. It is the illusion that prevents the people from standing up and taking back their God Power, the power of God within each and every one of them. And it is the illusion that is being perpetuated by the elite itself—the elite in the media, the elite in the government, the elite in businesses and finance and banking.

For they desperately cling to their positions of power and privilege. Yet, underneath it all, some of them are beginning to realize, that their days are numbered. And the days of their power and privilege over the people, those days are numbered too, for they see, that this cannot go on forever. It is only a matter of a relatively short time, before the people will rise up, as they have done before against the feudal system and other examples of the power elite having attained almost total control over the people.

Many among the power elite are, of course, still blind to this. But some of them are beginning to see it. Thus, what I desire you to be aware of, what I desire you to envision and what I desire you to make calls on, is that the people are awakened from this idolatry of thinking that they need an elite. An elite of selfish and self-centered people in order to continue a society with stability. We of the ascended masters are not in any way, shape or form attached to stability. We want growth! And sometimes, growth means that you must throw off the old, by letting it become shattered—if that is what is necessary, because the people cling to it to the point of almost insanity, of not being willing to let it go.

We certainly prefer a smooth transition from the current economic system to a Golden Age economy. We prefer to minimize the suffering and the loss. Nevertheless, we do not prefer this to the point, where we are willing to prevent the people from learning their lesson. And thus, I trust that you will see, that it is not appropriate for you to make calls for the stabilizing of the economy. It is not appropriate for you to make calls for the propping up of the institutions created by the fallen beings. It is not appropriate for you to make calls that support the power elite.

You need to make the calls and hold the vision, that the people learn their lesson, and that those who will not learn receive the judgment of Christ, so that they can be removed. This is what will bring progress. And if it requires a few bumpy turns of the road, then so be it. For I tell you, it is a necessity that the people learn what can be done to misuse the economy before they will be ready to accept the economy of the Golden Age.

If I had an instrument that could right now present the Golden Age economy to humankind, well, the vast majority of the people on this planet simply would not accept it. They would reject it as a hopeless, utopian pipe-dream, that simply could never come to pass. For they are so steeped in the consciousness of lack, again perpetrated by the fallen beings as a result of their idolatry. For what is the essence of idolatry? It is the desire to raise yourself and your own group above other people. But how can you raise yourself compared to others, unless you are in an environment infused with the illusion of lack? For in order for some to have more, others must have less. And this state of an unequal distribution of wealth and privilege cannot exist in the abundant life of God. It can only exist, when that abundant life has been rejected by a critical mass of human beings, so that it cannot be physically manifest.


Spreading risk or masking risk?
When I talk about an equal distribution of wealth, I am not talking about the socialist dream, where the state has usurped the position held by each person’s I AM Presence. I am talking about the true realism of the Golden Age, where the people realize, that they have access to the power of God within themselves. And therefore, they can bring forth the abundant life without being dependent upon an elite here on earth, an elite who can make the decisions of how to run the complicated financial system, that the elite has created precisely in order to hide their intentions and their manipulation from the people.

What you have seen lately is that the system has finally become so complicated, that even the people who created it can no longer figure out how the system works. They can no longer assess the true risk of the dubious financial instruments they have created. And thus, you see that companies who have been in business for over a century can suddenly vanish in a week, because their own leaders have become so deceived by the complexity of their financial instruments and by the consciousness of greed, that they could not accurately assess the risk of those instruments. And thus could not even keep their own companies afloat.

And this is the lesson that the people need to learn: when they are in the state of idolatry, blindly following the blind leaders, allowing the blind leaders to run the economy, well then, it is only a matter of time before those blind leaders back themselves and the entire nation – and in a sense the entire world – into a corner from which there is no easy way out. There is only a collapse of the system, my beloved. For you see, the lesson learned by those who desired to build the Tower of Babel – a tower that could reach into the heavens – is that when you build too high without having the foundation of the reality of the Christ consciousness – because you are building on the sand of the anti-christ consciousness – well, then there comes a point, where your creation will tumble under its own weight. And this is what you see in the financial system of the United States and beyond.


From blind greed to blind fear
What has driven this financial system now for decades is indeed unbridled, blind greed. This is a greed, that has perverted the financial system to the point, where it was so based on debt, that it became impossible to accurately assess the risk of conducting business in that system. For the risk had been spread out and thereby masked and camouflaged, so that no one knew what was really going on. But as long as the cycle of supposed growth and profit continued – because the people in the system blindly believed that it could continue forever – well, then the cycle did continue seemingly forever, built not only on the blindness and the greed of those on the top, but even the blindness and the greed of many among the people. People who thought that by investing their savings, their pension plans, in the stock market and other dubious hedge funds and mutual funds, they could get something for nothing, as I talked about when I last discoursed on the economy, back in the spring.

Both the people at the top and the people who followed those blind leaders were blinded by that consciousness of something for nothing, that is the essence of greed. Where you are no longer willing to work for a fair return, you are no longer willing to work to raise all life and thereby receive your just reward. No, you want to receive a reward without working, or you want to receive a reward that is greater than you could achieve by working. You want a shortcut, you want something for nothing.

And this blinds you to greed, where you suddenly think that anything goes—anything that seems to offer you a short-term profit should be pursued. For, after all, if you don’t do it, all the other companies in the financial world will, and they will seem to be doing better than you. So everybody jump into the fray and follow suit. And the people who are investing see that those who are investing in these dubious instruments are making money, and they think they have to jump in as well. And everyone is caught up in the fray, in the frenzy, like the feeding frenzy of a school of fish that blindly snap at anything that moves, in order to get a part before the party is over.

Yet most people did not realize that the party would be over. Because the profits that were claimed were not real profits, they were imaginary profits because the risk had been masked to the point, where it seemed like there was no loss or the loss could be postponed to next year. So we can make the money and get a good balance sheet this year – and make the bonuses for the people in the top – and then nobody bothered to think what would happen a year, two, five, ten years down the road. In the blindness of their greed, nobody bothered to ask their own accountants to project what would happen down the road, if the present trend continues. And even the accountants had difficulty assessing the real risk of derivatives and other financial instruments, so that the entire system was in this state of blindness.

This is the blindness that is the inevitable companion of greed. For you see, greed can only be based on an illusion. And any illusion feeds further illusion, further blindness. What is the illusion behind greed? It is the illusion of the separate self, where it seems possible that we can gain an advantage to ourselves and our company, and then never mind what happens down the road, to these other people that we are taking money from or to the system itself.


Learn from the story of the golden goose
One of the great problems in today’s world is that most children have been brought up without the knowledge of the old fairy tales, the old folk tales, that used to circulate among the population and thereby became a part of the awareness of most children as they grew up. For those tales were indeed inspired by the ascended masters to inject valuable life lessons in a playful format that children would take in. And so the problem is that most of the money managers in today’s world never heard the tale of the golden goose—the goose that laid the golden eggs.

So let me retell it briefly. There was a man who had a goose. And one day he noticed that the goose had laid a golden egg. He was, of course, happy, but he was even more happy the next day, when he realized that the goose would lay a golden egg every day! And for a time he was overjoyed and bought everything he desired for those golden eggs. But then gradually he became greedy and started thinking: why should I have to wait to get a golden egg every day, why should I not cut open the goose and get all the eggs at once. He cut open the goose and found only one egg in there. And he lost the goose and all the golden eggs of the future.

An economy based on the gambling consciousness
And this is indeed what the money managers have done through the economy by creating an economy, that is basically based on the same exact consciousness, the same exact principle, that you see driving Las Vegas and gambling in general. It is the desire of something for nothing, where you make a small, seemingly insignificant investment, and then you hope that the outcome would be a tremendous return, through some aspect of fate or luck. And basically, by masking the risk of derivatives and other financial instruments, the money managers entered into this state of gambling, of thinking that because they were investing borrowed money, and because they had masked the risk, it was an insignificant investment that had the potential to give a very large return.

And this is the exact principl of gambling. You think you can invest in gambling without losing. And therefore you see millions of people who buy a lottery ticket every week, hoping that one day it will get the big return. But you see, gambling is a business, is it not? And a business can survive only if it makes a profit. And that means that for all of the people who buy a lottery ticket, even though a prize is paid out every week, less money is paid out than is paid into the system, for otherwise the business could not continue. So, you now see the fallacy of gambling, for certainly some people seem to get something for nothing, but all people could not get something for nothing, or the system would collapse.

And this is the same you see on Wall Street. When Wall Street started investing not only money but borrowed money – money that was not only borrowed because they existed somewhere, but money that was created out of nothing – they gradually started creating the situation, where sometimes there would be a big return on an investment. But then it became clear, that the promise was that all of those who invested in these new financial instruments would make a return. And that promise simply could not be fulfilled, because it was an illusion to begin with, as it is an illusion that all who play the lottery can win the big prize.

For a time, the greed blinded the people, so they went along with it. But then inevitably there comes a point of reckoning, where the Tower of Babel has become so top-heavy, that it starts to crumble and crack under its own weight. And then – suddenly – the people in the top start waking up and realizing that this cannot continue. And then they do what always happens—they switch from the illusion of greed to the illusion of fear. And in their fear, they try to pull out what they have before others do the same. And thus, they create the downward spiral that threatens a complete meltdown of the entire system.


Is the government for the people or for the elite?
And this suddenly wakes up the rest of the people and the government – who up until now has been asleep at the helm – for they would not regulate these new financial instruments, and thought the market would take care of it. And suddenly, the government wakes up and realizes, that the market will indeed take care of it—by taking down the entire flawed financial system. But wait a minute, that would be too big of a shock to society, they think, and it will certainly overturn some of these venerable institutions that we think we cannot live without. And, so now the government believes, that it has to step in, in order to protect the people. But I ask you to consider: who is the government protecting? Is it the people—or the power elite?

And indeed, you will see that so far the American government is too trapped in the entire mindset of something for nothing – the mindset of greed, the mindset of elitism – that they are acting primarily to protect the elite, rather than the people. And I will therefore prophesy to you, that if they do not thoroughly reform the entire financial system, then whatever they do will only prop up the system temporarily. And it is a matter of months or a few years before the next crisis will roll along.

Yet, I will also tell you, that there are intelligent and well-meaning people in the system – both in businesses and in the government – who have the potential to enact the kind of reforms that are necessary, to not only stave off the current crisis, but actually to put the entire financial world back on a sustainable growth path, where the system will not destroy itself out of blind greed. There is the potential, that if these people are allowed to bring forth their ideas, and if those ideas are indeed carried out, well then, the ship can be righted, so to speak. And you can have a more smooth transition toward the Golden Age economy. Yet I must tell you that the Golden Age economy is very far off from the current state of the economy world-wide, and especially in these United States. And so, I am cautiously optimistic, but “cautious” being the operative word in that sentence.

I am indeed a realist, and I realize, that the power of God can truly correct all man-made problems. The reality of God is that the Ma-ter Light can as easily outpicture the abundant life as the state of lack and inequality projected by the elite and the people who have blindly followed them. Yet I also see that there are many hurdles that need to be overcome—hurdles that most people, even the brightest in the financial world or the government, do not see, for they cannot look that far ahead.

For they have not yet been willing to truly take a look at the system and say, “What is actually wrong with the system?” They are still trapped in the consciousness of saying, “What do we need to do prevent a collapse of the system?” Instead of saying, “What do we need to do to create an economy that is sustainable, that promotes sustainable growth? Growth not only for the elite, but for all people.”


A sustainable financial system
In this day and age – in the transition to the Aquarian Age – no economy can be sustainable, unless it raises up all people toward the abundant life. It is not sustainable to have an economy on a world basis, where two thirds of the world’s population live near the starvation level or below the poverty level of a few dollars a day. This is not sustainable, and as long as the rich nations will not address that problem, well, then their economies will always be in a state of going from one crisis to the next, always being threatened by collapsing under their own weight. For they are fed by greed instead of the true desire to raise up all life.

What will it take to create a financial system, that is sustainable? It will take that the government wakes up and acknowledges its rightful role. The reason – one of the primary reasons for the current financial crisis – is indeed the lack of regulation. The government has been caught up in a false view of the free market economy, that makes them think that the best they can do is stand back and let the market create whatever financial instruments they want to create. For the market will eventually regulate itself, as the saying goes.

As I started out saying, I hold the Flame of Freedom for the earth. But what is freedom? Is it the freedom to exploit? Is it the freedom of a small power elite to dominate the population? Nay, my beloved. This is not freedom! For you see, freedom cannot be found through the blindness of the human ego. Freedom cannot be found through the duality consciousness. Freedom can be found only in knowing the reality of the oneness of all life. Thus knowing that only when you do something that seeks to raise the All, will you be doing something that will truly benefit yourself.


Misuse of economic freedom to create monopolies
What is the role of government, or the role of a free democratic government, the kind of government that the founding fathers envisioned, at least partly, and attempted to create through the United States Constitution? It is indeed to protect the people, to serve as the steward of the principles, that will raise up all life towards greater freedom, even greater economic freedom and economic abundance.

It is a myth perpetrated by certain people among the elite, that a free market economy can run itself without government intervention. It is a further myth, that the United States has a free market economy and has always had such an economy. The reality – that even a superficial study of history will reveal – is that in the late 1800’s, there were certain financiers, certain industrialists, who had used the freedom of the free market to create businesses and financial institutions of such size, that they began to realize that it was possible not only to adapt to market conditions, but to drive and control market conditions in order to create monopolies. Yet, they also realized, that in a true free market economy – where competition is unrestricted and where the people are educated and informed – it is not possible to create a monopoly.

Freedom is the anti-thesis of monopolies. For a monopoly is not the inevitable result of free competition. Free competition will destroy, or rather prevent the creation of, monopolies, by always making it possible for others to compete, no matter how big one business might become. A business will only remain big in a free economy as long as it serves its customers. But when you create a monopoly and artificially raise prices, you are no longer serving your customers, and if there is free competition those customers will go elsewhere.

And this was what was realized by some of the big industrialists and financiers, such as Morgan and Rockefeller and others in the late 1800’s. They realized, that in a democratic nation, such as the United States, it was not possible to create a monopoly through competition. The only way to create a monopoly was to restrict competition by causing the government to be deceived by the illusion, that the government had to enter the economy and use its power to regulate the economy for the purpose of creating stability. Which, in the vision of these big financiers, meant creating a stable situation where no smaller companies could come up and challenge the position of the big established companies.

And this is what you have seen over this past century, that government regulations have been used to serve to protect the big established companies from the free market, the free competition. And then, the master stroke of these financiers was the creation of the Federal Reserve, the Federal Reserve System, which served not only to prevent free competition in the banking industry, but also served to prevent the big companies from reaping the consequences of their own mistakes. In a free economy, those who make mistakes will reap the consequences and thus go down or be reduced in size. So if a company got big and greedy and no longer served its customers, in a free economy the customers would go elsewhere, and thus the company would be either reduced in size or disappear completely.

In creating the Federal Reserve as the lender of last resort, the big banks could then make questionable investments, and if they turned out to be wrong, well, then the system would protect them from going down. This is to a large degree what you see today. Or do you not see, my beloved, that the investment banks that have so far been independent of the regular banks, are falling one by one? But who is taking them over? Well, is it not the big banks, who are a part of the Federal Reserve System, and therefore are backed by the taxpayers, for the taxpayers are liable for the money that the system creates out of nothing?


The role of government in the economy
As I said in my last discourse, when you create more money to prop up the failing system, well then you put more money in circulation. But there is nothing of real value to support that money, and the inevitable result is that the value of the money is degraded, which means that the value of the labor of the majority of the population is degraded. And thus their standard of living inevitably goes down, for, inflation eats up the value of people’s labor.

This then, is what must be seen, what must be corrected. And it must be seen by a large number – a critical mass – of the people, who have so far not been willing to use their freedom in a relatively free society to go beyond the illusions and the lies fed by the mainstream press and educate themselves about the reality of how the economy works. So that they themselves can be the watchmen on the wall. For surely, the people in the media are not the watchmen, as they should be, nor are many people in the government the watchmen, as they should be.

The consequence here is that it is a myth, that a free democratic government can stay out of the economy. It is indeed absolutely necessary, that a modern government will keep a watchful eye on the economy and will regulate. But the problem is, that regulation should not be to give an advantage to the elite, to the establishment. It should be made to make sure that an elite cannot form, that an establishment cannot form, but that the people always have recourse to take their business elsewhere and to create smaller businesses that compete with the big ones.

Another concern that must be brought out and debated freely is: is it necessarily the duty of a free democratic government to allow businesses to reach and go beyond a certain size? Is it truly a free economy if businesses are allowed to become so big, that they cannot only out-compete smaller businesses but that they can actually drive the market? And thus, they can create a situation like what you have seen in the financial industry, where the financial companies themselves created these new financial instruments that ended up destroying the entire system.

It is again the duty of a government to protect its citizens against the consequences of companies becoming so big, that they can dominate the marketplace and therefore in some sense hold a monopoly. A monopoly that in many cases is protected by government regulations, but in other cases is protected by non-regulation, so that once a company has become so big that it dominates the market, well it can effectively destroy any competition to itself.


Why laissez faire is not an option
Precisely because I am the God of Freedom, I realize that laissez faire is not an option on this planet, as long as so many people are blinded by the duality consciousness. And as long as there is such a large number of people who are totally embodying the fallen consciousness, the self-centered, egotistical consciousness of wanting something for themselves regardless of the consequences for other people. A government cannot simply let the market take care of itself. For the government – that should be elected by the people, should be of the people, by the people, for the people – that government must protect the people, not only from the elite but even from the people’s own blindness, when they are blinded by the duality consciousness. And that is why such a government must be based on principles. 

But in this day and age it is clearly not enough to have a constitution based on principles. For that constitution will be undermined by people who do not see the truth behind those principles. And thus, in the Aquarian Age it is necessary to raise up people in all aspects of government and in the media and in business and in other branches of society, who have the vision that beyond man-made ideas there is a greater reality. And it is only when we reach for that greater reality, that we can create a sustainable civilization. A civilization that does not collapse under its own weight—whether through financial crisis or through war or through other manifestations, such as natural disasters or even epidemic diseases, that are an outpicturing of people’s consciousness.

The real lesson that should be learned here is, that if you allow any aspect of society to be dominated by the duality consciousness, then you will experience a crisis that will threaten the collapse of the entire society. And the only way to avoid this cycle of ups and downs – what some people have mistakenly called the business cycle, as if it was an inevitable part of business – the only way to avoid these ups and downs, is to reach for something that is beyond the duality consciousness. For, as long as you have a business world based on the duality consciousness, well, then you will have a business cycle of ups and downs. This is inevitable. And it is inevitable that sooner or later this system will collapse, although it is amazing to see the ingenuity used by those in the duality consciousness to prop up a financial system, so that it has been able to sustain itself for as long as it has.

Yet, I would be far more glad to be amazed by the willingness of people to recognize the flaws in the current system, and their willingness to reach for the ideas that we are surely ready to inspire upon people with the necessary knowledge of the economy, so that we can indeed see the emergence of a sustainable system that avoids these ups and downs. For, as I said before, there are many people who have an in-depth knowledge of the economy, and therefore have the chalice prepared, that they could receive the ideas from the ascended masters, that are absolutely necessary to pull people out – to pull society, to pull civilization – out of the current financial crisis.


The vision for people to hold
The vision I desire you, the spiritual people, to hold is that those people who have the knowledge and who have the potential to be open to higher ideas are indeed awakened. And that they are recognized and are allowed to come to the forefront of the system, so that they can play their intended role – the role that they elected to play before they came into embodiment, but that most of them have forgotten. So they need someone to hold the vision for them, that they will awaken and suddenly realize why they are here, and suddenly step forward, no longer maintaining a silence but step forward and demand influence in a balanced way, that will indeed be recognized by the people as the voice of reason, the voice of higher principles.

The people are already there, they are already in position, we simply need that last step of pushing society over the brink, so that those people come to the forefront and their ideas are recognized as what is necessary to take society forward. Hold that vision, my beloved, call it forth, demand that it be manifest. For this is indeed the most valuable service that you who are the spiritual people can do for the economy. Do not seek to prop up the system of the fallen ones. Seek instead to bring forth the system of the ascended masters, that can replace the old system and truly create and manifest a Golden Age economy.

Thus, I thank you for your attention. I thank you for your invocations, for your calls. I thank those of you who are participating in the course of Christhood, for by being willing to look at the beam in your own eye, you are also looking at the beam in the collective consciousness. And as you pull the beam from your own eye, you make it easier for thousands or millions of people to also see and pull that beam.

In the Aquarian Age we do not wish our students to have the idolatry, that inevitably causes them to feel left out. We want people to feel involved, to feel they are part of what we are doing, so that we are not up here doing something that you are on the receiving end of, but that you very much see the figure-eight flow, that as you multiply what we give, we can give even more, and thus we all grow together in the River of Life.

Thus, be sealed in that Flame of Freedom. Be sealed in that River of Life. And be at peace, my beloved. Do not for a second entertain any fear. Even if the whole world goes into a fear about the economy, hold the vision for the Golden Age economy. Hold the vision that the people learn their lessons, even if they are hard learned lessons. But still that they learn their lessons and transcend the old consciousness that has created the present system. Hold that vision and be sealed in the peace that truly is an aspect of freedom. For how can you be at peace if you are not free?
