An Introduction To The Authors
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.
Central Upper Management
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.
The Rainbow Masters
Now that the first group of Formidable Contributors to this volume, who come from the realm of “Central Upper Management“, have been introduced, I now turn to the second group, the seven “Rainbow Masters” or Color Ray Energies from the higher etheric teaching realms. These Beings are most often associated with facilitating our development along their particular direction(s) of talent or focus (and thus “color”) of intent.
As Esu Sananda strongly suggests in the Foreword to The Rainbow Masters Phoenix Journal:
“Oh yes, man of Earth, heed well the gracious words of wisdom from these Teachers of the Seven Rays of Life, for they have come to see this journey through. They shall be known to the faithful as wonderful; they shall be known to thine enemies as death.... Each has a realm of Truth that you might have instructions and Light of function, for you will need to rebuild and become in wholeness once again.... Each represents a Fragment of the Whole and bears witness to The Truth in guideship for you ones upon the planet Earth. They are magnificent cohans [teachers] who will respond at a moment’s call and you must come into comfort, one with another, that our journey can be made in perfection, each with his own contribution....
”THESE TEACHERS (COHANS) OF THE RAYS OF LIFE...ARE YOUR MOST CLOSE GUIDES AND INSTRUCTORS. YOU WILL PLACE THEM WITH THE ARCHANGELS FOR LEVEL OF STATURE, FOR THEY ARE THE MASTERS HAVING ASCENDED. THEY SIT AT THE HIGHER COUNCIL WITH MICHAEL, GABRIEL, URIEL, ZADKIEL, JOPHIEL, MARONI, MURU, KUTHUMI, RAPHAEL, QUETZALCOATL AND OTHERS OF THE ELDER RACES OF WHICH I SHALL NOT NAME THEM ALL, FOR IN MOST INSTANCES THEY WILL NOT BE YOUR CLOSEST GUIDES, FOR THEIR PURPOSE AND SERVICES VARY.
“DO NOT BECOME STAGNANT WHILE TOYING WITH THE ENERGY POSSIBILITIES. YOU WILL KNOW WHO IS YOUR GUIDE, OR SENDS GUIDES. IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO SPEND OF VALUABLE TIME IN SUPPOSITION. THE ENERGIES ARE COMING EVER CLOSER AND CLOSER INTO YOUR PROXIMITY AND SOON YOU SHALL NOT MISS OF THEIR PRESENCE.”
Also in The Rainbow Masters we find a short, but typically comprehensive, statement by Aton about these magnificent Teachers:
“The Brotherhood of the Seven Rays are your mentors, and man’s individuality comes under the forces of the great Seven Rays of Life. One is guided by the powerful forces at work within these Rays. Each and all flow into conscious life upon one of these Rays, and your life experience is influenced by the Ray through which you descended.”
What has been most noticeable about the teachings of these great Ray Energies is the way they have extrapolated, in their writings herein, the seemingly little challenges of everyday life into major spiritual lessons. They continually point out how the surmounting of these so-called “everyday” challenges leads to greater clarity of purpose, greater responsibilities, and greater joy from fulfilling one’s part as the hands and feet for the unfolding manifestation of Creator Source in the physical realm of planet Earth. It is just this magnificent Big Picture that we most often tend to lose sight of, in our preoccupation with the day-to-day details of living. If we could more easily see the true value that each “little” challenge presents, we would view them more often with the open-eyed enthusiasm of children, say, first learning to walk or tie their shoes.
With that said, I now present The Masters of the Rays.
Now do you see why I felt inadequate to the task of introducing these Formidable Teachers?! Note that there are seven from the realm of “Upper Management” and seven “Rainbow Masters". All of the passages they asked me to share with you have some points in common, or otherwise overlap in complementary ways, displaying a combined purpose that weaves a tapestry of great insight and compassion for the human condition at this time on planet Earth. And yet – all of these introductory portraits (as well as what you are about to read in Part II) also exhibit their Author's unique personality and style – or “color” – to put it in a metaphorical way.
Which brings me to the choice of cover art for this volume. Special thanks must go to a wonderful “hands-on” learning center for kids of all ages called The Exploratorium, located in San Francisco. They are responsible for the superb photograph of an actual prism in action. No simplified line drawing or cutesy artist's rendition or trite cartoon work here – this is the real thing! The subtlety of detail should give away that fact to the observant eye (or maybe to the optically knowledgeable eye).
This choice of cover art is not just pretty, for it carries a deeper, symbolic message too. Notice, first, that the “Light” emerges out of the "darkness of the void". Shades, here, of the Creation Story in the biblical Book of Genesis. Beyond that, however, we have the “One White Light” of God above, flowing down to we upon Earth, and being split up, in the process, into beautiful spectral aspects or colors which shine down upon and bathe our world with the energies of the Master Color Rays of en-Light-enment – as you have just been reading about in this Introduction.
I have a dear spiritual friend who has been “around the block” quite a few times in her now-almost-ninety years. She was, for much of that time, a very close personal and business associate of Elizabeth Arden, the cosmetics genius. I shall here simply refer to this one as Angela ("from the realm of the Angels"). Through eyes more free-flowing than what training has done to narrow my physicist's view, she saw in the cover graphic: “Beauty, Harmony and the colorfully Luminous Spirit of the soul.” And also, the “Evolving of the soul from darkness into The Light” in all of its possibilities and varieties – the "full spectrum” of “colorful” souls, so to speak – which may actualize from God's thinking.
She also saw the light path not simply as my scientist's eye would read the action (from the top downward), but she also saw a flow in the OTHER direction, too. That is, she saw the rainbow spectrum as also symbolizing the rich variety of “color-full” created life “reaching straight for the Heavens, brightening", as our Earth-based cooperative effort merges back into that One White Light of God and Creator Source – thus completing the cycle of giving and regiving, so as to be given again.
And for you really enquiring minds, those other, seemingly spurious rays you see in the cover-art photo are what really happens (rather than what you usually see depicted in the “cartoon” drawings of too many so-called physics books these days) when an intense beam of white light is refracted AND reflected when intercepted by a prism. Not limited by physics, to Angela the blue-white hue exhibited by those reflected rays “denotes spiritual truth with enlightenment". Can't argue with that interpretation!
But what I am MOST reminded of, metaphorically, in looking at those extra reflected rays, is that the truth is always more complicated than the simplifications we are so often taught in school or we are otherwise so often inclined to adopt from ignorance and/or laziness. Now, that's a whole different subject, and yet it gets me back to some final thoughts to offer in closing out this quite-long-enough Introduction To The Authors:
Our world is indeed at a major crossroads at this time. WHILE our controlled media try their best to keep any truth from you, WHILE our educational systems have been programmed to dumb you down to the point of non-thinking, WHILE your rightful earnings have been systematically and escalatingly stolen from you, WHILE efforts have long been in place to get you malnourished and sick – and keep you there in the process of further draining your pocket book, WHILE elections are electronically fixed long before Election Day according to instructions from the highest levels of the dark elite controlling element in our society, WHILE cloning of soul-less robotic human duplicates has been a done technology for over thirty years now – utilized at the highest levels of political gamesmanship and brazenly paraded right before your eyes on each evening's television so-called “news” programs, and, while we're on the subject: WHILE most prefer to simply escape within their addiction to the dulling prattle of their vidiot boxes – yes, while all that and much, much more goes on – enough others nevertheless see, or better yet FEEL, changes on the way.
Some acutely sense bits and pieces of the larger planetary transformation ALREADY in motion. Late-night radio talk-show host Art Bell has even dubbed this feeling and phenomenon “The Quickening” – a most appropriate term (and his recent book title). And if you've just opened your eyes and you're hungry for another excellent “Earth-based” capsule summary about why it is our Elder Brothers need to be here at this particular time, go get brilliant author David Icke's book called: ... And The Truth Shall Set You Free. Or go back to the end of the Preface for information about acquiring the Phoenix Journals and the CONTACT newspaper.
No matter how you look at it (or try to run and hide from it), big changes are surely a-comin' fast – if for no other than very physics-oriented reasons having to do with the high-energy, high-frequency region of space which our planetary system is gradually approaching right now, and will most definitely pass through, that has been dubbed “The Photon Belt". Why do you think Esu "Jesus” Sananda said he would be back in 2000 years? He was well aware that the dark ones only had a certain while in which to continue to test us through wreaking their havoc. And then the you-know-what would hit the fan, so to speak, as the last days of the testing play out. That's what's happening now.
These incoming Photon Belt energies have a lot to do with all aspects of The Quickening. For instance, rarefying changes are occurring in the very substance of physical matter – including that physical matter which comprises our bodies and brains. These changes, in turn, will stimulate amazing, yet presently mostly latent, capabilities in mankind. Other changes must occur in Mother Earth, which will cause a lot more of what my then-little niece once most exquisitely called (just after a Los Angeles earthquake) the “sneezing” of Mother Earth, as she shudders and coughs to rid herself of man's poisonings and tamperings, and claims her rightfully earned, balanced, fourth-dimensional format.
BIG changes in our thinking are likewise inevitable – not only because long-hidden, mind-blowing information will be shattering previously held beliefs on all fronts, but also because man's newer (higher) perceptive capabilities will open him to more direct communion with (and thus transfer of information from) the Higher Lighted Teachers, such as those who contributed to this volume.
There's no way to stop it – and the major dark crooks know that. One way or the other, The Truth shall simply ALL, ALL, ALL come out! Good for us; bad for them.
Yes, the times they are a-changin'. Fast! And the ride will likely be a bumpy one. So gather around you your seat belts and shock absorbers and common-sense wits. And that's where the Teachings collected herein come into the picture, for there are many an enquiring mind out there, awakening to “the smell of the coffee” and hungry for Guidance that truly feeds the spirit and points the way for each to assume THEIR driver's seat and make a difference. A wise friend of mine, who was for many years President of the University of Notre Dame, used to like to remind me that the true role of Higher Education was to teach a person HOW to think, not WHAT to think. And that motto, while sorely missing from most so-called Higher Education these days, is certainly a central theme of the Messages you are about to read herein.
Consider this as a final thought as you decide whether or not to proceed into the rest of this volume: you're driving down the highway in your cool convertible and the radio says you're going to hit a heavy rainstorm coming up as you enter the next town, several miles yet down the road.
Now, you can ignore the radio – after all, how REAL is that, really, for you can't SEE or HEAR radio waves, just their “translation” through a “receiver". And, beyond that, who believes weather reports or meteorologists anymore anyway?
Or – you can bother to pay close attention to what the weather reports have to say, pull over, put up the top, make sure your windows will roll up, and maybe even fill your gas tank and snack bag at that service station coming up, just in case things do get messy further down the road.
I know what I would do. How about you?
And so, in the spirit of that challenge, I am asked by the Master Teachers who have guided this Introduction to leave you with the following words from a gracious soul who helped MANY on this planet – and whose recorded legacy continues to do so, long after his physical death (from exhaustion, by the way, trying to console too many near the end of that abominable, dark-elite-instigated conflagration called World War II). This humble being, yet famous “psychic", was known as Edgar Cayce, the “sleeping prophet". He surely tapped the same Higher Realms as produced the Messages that follow in this volume when, one day during a trance-state “reading” (262-104), he so wisely instructed:
For as ye apply day by day what ye know,
then is the next step,
the next act,
the next experience,
Because thou hast then failed here or there,
do not say “Oh, I cannot – I am weak."
To be sure, thou art weak in self, but O ye of little faith!
For He is thy STRENGTH! THAT is Wisdom!
Let no one then again ever say “I cannot."
It's rather, if ye do, saying “I WILL not – I want MY way."
This is foolishness, and ye know The Way.
For He is Strength; He is Love; He is Patience;
He is Knowledge; He is Wisdom.
Claim ALL of these, then, in HIM!
For He is in thee,
and the Father hath not desired that any soul should perish,
but hath prepared a way of escape,
a way of love,
for every soul –
if ye will but claim same,
