Paul The Venetian, The Artist
The Third Ray
Although no messages from Paul The Venetian appear on this website, they are present in the WISDOM OF THE RAYS: The Masters Teach books.
The Ascended Master of the Third Ray, or Spectral Aspect, of Creator's One White Light, is known as Paul The Venetian or Paul The Artist. Paul's main thrust is along the lines of helping any, who sincerely ask, to develop intuition and creative abilities – which of course means strengthening one's basic 'heart-love connection' with Creator Source. Paul has also been called the Guide and Teacher of those with an interest in philosophical matters.
In The Rainbow Masters, Paul helps us to sort the seeming confusion, from our physical perspective, about some of these Masters, particularly the lesser known ones, including himself, when he explains their cooperative and complementary working relationship: “I AM PAUL OF THE THIRD RAY OF REFRACTION OF THE CRYSTAL LIGHT. I AM OFTEN CALLED BY THE LABEL OF PAUL THE VENETIAN.... It is most difficult to separate we of the Higher Frequencies. We have a thrust, a talent given, if you will, toward focused purposes. As Morya represents most preciously the 'will' of God, Lanto the 'wisdom' of God – I, Paul, will focus on the element of 'love' and spirit discernment.
"I come on the comfort vibration of what we call the 'pink' frequency. My talents have long been in artistic perceptions and projections. I have been accused of heresy in some of my works upon your place, but so be it. Man wants his GOD to be in his own image. 'Tis not the way it is.
"Please do not confuse my terminology of love with what thee defines as 'love'. Myself and the brotherhood with whom I serve, of the Third Ray, are not idle dreamers of poetry and sounds of harmonious music. Ah, would it be that it could be so! We are quite pragmatic of the way of the Holy Spirit. It is through the beauty and purity of the Third Ray through which the wondrous qualities of diplomacy, patience, tact, arbitration, unity, brotherhood, culture, beauty and the perfecting of the 'heart' are made manifest."
Speaking symbolically, yet elevating to a magnificent spiritual plateau, familiar terms which the so-called Christian religions toss around in a more literal interpretation, Paul explains the fundamental qualities of his pink-rose frequency thusly: “Through the Blood (ruby red) of the Universal Christ, and the Body (crystal white) of that wondrous Christos, this pink-rose flame is birthed. It is through this pulsation that externalizes the Divine Plan in the chalice of man's being, through that Body and Blood of the Universal Christos.
"As we move forward, there will be much a-do about the threefold flame: the Heart, the Head and the Hand....” That is, he refers respectively to the motivating energies which power Feeling, Thinking – and the most difficult of all: getting up from one's seat and actually DOING!
Paul then goes on to explain his focus on our behalf: “I am most devoted to the perfecting of the souls and the development of the Intuitive and Creative faculties of the heart. I will most wish to be called into thy planning with thy architectural designs and beauteous buildings. I work most closely with my brothers of the First and Second Rays in bringing together the Will of God and the Wisdom of God into at-one-ment. We will work through the 'science' of Love as it applies to every challenge faced today – from terrorism, pornography, drug abuse, economic debacle, to nuclear war. We will transmute through the Violet Flame [of Saint Germain] in mergence to face even the cataclysms to come forth, and even through the 'putting down' of the Divine Female (including the Feminine Ray) in both sexes and little children. So be it.
"I also tell you to 'try [test with caution] the spirits, whether they come of God' for many false prophets are come into the world. The 'Holy Spirit' will teach thee how to exorcise those spirits which are not of God. Aton, as Brother Hatonn, has done well in his training of thee ones, but ones tend to forget with far quicker efficiency than the learning thereof.
"We will give thee much more assistance in the harnessing of these God forces. Ye must establish a strong heart-tie to the beloved Sacred Heart of thy Creator-Creation Source, that ye are never caught 'sleeping'. Ye will bind the evil spirits in the name 'I AM THAT I AM IN THE RADIANCE OF THE SACRED CIRCLE CHRISTOS'. Utilize the strength given unto thee by thy superior Commander-In-Chief, Esu Jesus Sananda – Standing Bear of the Wakan Tanka – through the blessed truths brought by White Buffalo Calf Woman unto the early tribes. These were brought forth in balance and harmony, and gifted in abundance from Source unto thee."
Paul also reminds us of a very important, yet often overlooked, matter of growth and responsibility – to share our UNIQUE PERSONAL contribution in this time of major planetary transition: “Ones upon thy place plead worthlessness and that only a 'few' have been given certain gifts of beauty and talent. Nay, not so! Locked within the being of EVERY incarnate soul is a talent unique unto thee. It can manifest as a painting, music, invention, or the special gift of 'giving' – as in thy Mother Theresa. Most of you have hidden it away, in thy insecurity, and have refused to bring it forth. Ye shall overcome. It matters not what 'level' of perceived enlightenment ye may be. Ye can grow; YE MUST GROW! For when ye come right down to the truth of it, the fires of creativity held within the force-field of man (any HU-man) determine what he can accomplish in his earthly span of perceived 'time'.
"Most dissipate their creativity in lust for money and things of worldly value, fill their thrust with worldly desires and fleshly pleasures and pursuits, and in acquisitiveness that is the disease of the human race. Ye will be assisted in exercising the mind in nonattachment and impersonalization, that ye may move from the traps of worldly bindings which destroy thee. So be it.
"I come to work with thee that ye might learn of thy own soul's psychology, for ye are lost in confusion in the learning. Be patient in thy learning and communion with US, as we move more closely into thy spaces.... More as definition of my vibration, I am referred to as the Cohan of the Third Ray, with emphasis upon love, creativity, and beauty. In other words, these are the areas of my, let us say, expertise.
"Creativity and beauty cannot actually exist without the presence of love; therefore, let us consider love.
"Love IS the flowing essence, the ephemeral quality of God. As it is the movement of the wind and the flowing of water, it requires the greatest of discipline to be able to retain – to have and to hold that love that is so tender, so gentle, and yet the ultimate expression of creative 'fires'. Those who are the greatest artists, poets, and musicians, who use the flame of love to implement an idea of God, are those who have the greatest discipline – discipline of self, energies of self, of life, even of time and space.
"I come, then, to bring unto you an understanding of this discipline so that you will understand that discipline is not something to be feared, but rather that discipline is the Law, the fulfillment of love. Discipline is a grid, a force-field that is necessary in order to have the flow of love and to retain the flow of love.
"Where there are lives which are undisciplined, love departs; love compromised and perverted is lost. Where energies in motion are undisciplined, where there is not a chalice that can contain the liquid fire of love, mankind then loses of that love.
"To be happy for eternity means that love must be ensconced in a discipline that requires the discipline of self. To continue to receive love, ye must give of it. Know that as you discipline your energy, your supply, your expression, the hours of your day, your service to life, you are increasing your capacity to release love. The more you are disciplined, the stronger are the grids of consciousness. To have a strong consciousness, as strong sinews, enables you to balance megatons of the Light-force that you call love.
"On Terra, however, there is such difficulty on the part of lifestreams in their handling of the currents of love that many who should be master of the flame of the Third Ray are now in states of disintegration and their minds are filled with foul spirits and the mutterings of those spirits. This state of being in degradation results from having perverted that wondrous flame....
"For out of love is the fulfillment of the Mother flame of every invention, every aspect of Divine Reality that is waiting to be lowered into manifestation through the creative genius of many among you and many among mankind.... People feel a sense of worthlessness and that only a few have abilities for invention and creativity....
"Before I take leave, I would please speak of the 'STEP NOT TAKEN' – the step contemplated and often resisted, that is, until resistance itself becomes such an ingrained habit that ye are chained into immobility by thy own bindings. The next step, then, becomes self acceptance. Ye find excuses such as: 'Well, this is the way I am, and people will just have to accept me this way. This is my level of service. This is all I will give and others can give the rest.'
"Well, the fallacy in this is not self-knowledge and defining one's potential, for it is good to understand one's capacity and not to commit more than one can. But the fallacy is, beloved ones, the sense that one can rest on any plateau or arrive at a set of definitions for one's life or personality, seal them with a sealing of wax, and lock without key, make the imprint of the seal of oneself and say: 'As it is, so it is. So be it. I have spoken.'
"Listen carefully, chelas, as this is the trap! It is the HUMAN EGO that would hold you captive and imprison the soul to a certain level of the 'knowns' where ye feel ye have security and stability. But, unknowingly, it would keep the soul there, and it would convince the soul that no other progress can, OR SHOULD, be made, and that its current level of attainment is sufficient unto all things. Nay, nay, nay!
"Let us take utmost care that self-assessment does not result in the inertia of 'rest' and that such inertia is not confused with the state of nirvana. The Higher States of Consciousness are those of 'MOVEMENT' and 'ACTION' even within the heart of absolute 'rest'.
"My service to life, and unto you ones, is to show the way of Love, especially to coalesce the teachings of the Lords of the First and Second Rays. This will thrust ye further, then, into the heart of the Crystal Core, the fiery core of Serapis Bey (the Lion of the Rays), and then going forth therefrom to bring into precipitation and merging of the Sixth and Seventh Rays of Transmutation. Love is the key element, without which ye are trapped. So be it and I place my seal upon this portion....
"I take my leave in humble appreciation and leave a cloak of Love about thee that ye might find peace in thy journey.... Adonai, precious chelas. I look forward in great joy to sharing again with thee ones. I AM PAUL, IN LOVE AND ETERNAL SERVICE UNTO THE ONE LIGHT AND UNTO THEE. AHO."
