The following Author descriptions are taken from WISDOM OF THE RAYS: The Masters Teach, Vol.1, Chapters 1–14
by Dr. Edwin M. Young
A “short” introduction to the Author-Teachers who made this volume possible was originally planned to be a part of what is now called the Preface. However, the material each Author asked to be included, to give you a “feel” for their personality, their focus, and their perspective, expanded things enough that it became more practical to defer that information to a stand-alone section, here.
I must confess to feeling inadequate to this task. You'll see why as we get going here. Nevertheless, introduce them I do, individually, these Elder Brothers and Formidable Authors of the Part II writings – writings which, for those of you who may be unfamiliar yet curious about such things, were "received” mentally, in a manner you could call “inspired writing".
The messages were written down as “heard” by several scribes who prefer to remain anonymous. These otherwise-quite-normal people would be the first to say: "It is the message that is important, not me, the scribe; I just hope I heard correctly what the Author tried to impress upon my mind during the writing process.” Well, as one who deals with assessing such material on a daily basis (along with evaluating output from the more usual methods of written and spoken information flow), these writings speak loud-and-clear for the “high fidelity” quality of that which was received.
Meanwhile, for you skeptics of such a communication process, let me pose the following question: “Who cares?” Let's assume a certain measure of objectivity on the part of anyone sincerely searching for answers in these troubling and turbulent latter days of the 20th century. Therefore, for YOUR own peace of mind, honestly ask yourself: “Who cares WHERE the messages came from – so long as I get something helpful, to think about and/or act upon, out of them?!” That's the bottom line: discern the message!
Now, “Who are these Author-Teachers?” you ask, maybe with some curiosity. Let me try to “briefly” introduce each as best I can. Where appropriate, and upon their instructions, I have utilized selected passages from some of the early Phoenix Journals, and occasionally from other sources, to help convey the flavor of each personality.
The challenge here is partly a matter of what has long been kept hidden from the public (by those dark ones who would hope to control this planet) about our rightful place in the universe in which we live. Imagine being told all the while you were a child that you were an orphan with no family – and then later finding out you belonged to quite an impressive family. Well, it's now time to meet some of the relatives!
I have grouped the Contributors to this volume into two categories. The first group are those I think of as coming from the realms of “Central Upper Management". That phrase will make a lot more sense when you see who They are. The second group are dedicated Teaching Masters often called the “Rainbow Masters". These ones hail from the Higher Etheric Realm and each specializes with a particular focus (and thus “color") of intent.
So – let us begin with the group that I respectfully, if irreverently, refer to as “Central Upper Management” and who refer to themselves, using Earth-based terminology more familiar to the average person's vocabulary from centuries of religious indoctrination, as: God and (some of) His Heavenly Hosts.
