New York City at The Summit
1975- A group of sacred nine issued of Gurus’ heart, of Ma and Morya El: Joseph, Maureen, David, Paula Z., Paula B., Gayle, John, Sara-Lee and Thomas from Malibu, California took Manhattan over by storm of Blue and Violet!
Strong Decrees of blue, yellow-gold, pink, white, green, purple and violet, prayers, mantras, invocations, and leaflets passed out on the streets; lectures, teachings dispensed, from hotel rooms, rental halls, private and public building locations, and they become an assembly of ten, twenty, thirty, forty! Like a diamond in the rough, Love is to be found in the Diamond Heart of our Master Morya!
1978- Graces New York City of her presence, she does, the Mother, and brings the Word on Stomp. A memorable dictation and a sight to behold:
1979- Colombia University shelters the Mother’s return.
Thrives, the New York Teaching Center reinforced. Come into form teaching groups attended by seekers and supporting members, the local chelas in the Tri-States of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and the five boroughs of New York City: Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx and Long Island.
1980- A marching order is issued from the Goddess of Liberty in a dictation that left the congregation all agape:
the pioneers within the year move to Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, leave local Keepers in their stead. Davies, Richard, Luis, Anthony, John, Louis, Yolanda, LeeRoy, Charlotte, Pauline, Fabiola, Angela, Hector, Simone to the present, have headed a board of five, succeeded one another – They all have taken us (and we have taken them) through those ‘human’ initiations, - inner frustrations and annoyances, - but also through beautiful Services, picnics in the parks, bus and boat rides. a day at the Ellis with Mother Liberty, an opera night, sharing in holy agapes and ‘foolish’ dancing at the TC local where our Inner Child could laugh and share God-Love with no restraint.
1981- The first time in New York, - that would be the last and only time – through Blessed Saint Germain, the Mother does healing. Keepers stand in a line to pray as told under their breath into the universe, and petition for cancellation and the removal of physical and spiritual conditions adverse to their progress, those demons, as once said Lord Jesus, to which we “have given bed and care for centuries.” A day that the many always will remember!
1990- Recipient of Beloved Morya’s March 4th great initiation, the City of New York has no crime to report in the metropolis and the boroughs within a slot of twenty-four-hour. Unforgettable! City officials must have had their fill of astonishment and bafflement complete. And what of the Keepers? Nods of understanding, smiles, joy, and a feeling of ‘holy conspiracy’ bond the Master and his chelas.
Morya’s promise besides, is to return the 4th of every month,
to take a blessed walk all over the City. Easy to visualize him
smiling in his lovely beard, our Bapu under the appearance
of an average gentleman, transporting himself through the streets, the subway system, the official buildings, the schools, universities, through City Hall, the police precincts, the churches, parks, even engaging some in conversation, unaware they are of his status. A busy day for a busy Master while we do our special part to keep, with heart ablaze, the day’s decrees going.
1993- Beloved Guru Ma translates from Mother Liberty:
A replica – a duplication, no less - of the ‘Threefold-Flame of the Heart’ of the altar in her Retreat over Manhattan Island, is lowered down and placed on the altar of our humble Teaching Center, now renamed ‘The Chapel of the Threefold Flame of Liberty.’ Keepers, you must have been doing something right for such a tremendous, unheard of, unprecedented dispensation!
1997- Beloved Archangel Michael and Guru Ma release the use of the sword. Demons, we are taught take fright of sharp objects, feel their cutting action, and the sword is one powerful instrument to glide through our aura often while invoking the Archangel, and thus free ourselves from the grasp of the evil ones
1998- Now, let us engage in the program called ‘FIREWORKS!’ Not the kind that sends colorful pyrotech patterns high into the sky of special celebrations, carnival sites and the week of the fourth of July! It rather is flames of Love sent out to Guru Ma’s Heart. See, her retirement she had announced for the following year. “How can a Flame retire?!” rightfully exclaims one brother at the NYCCTC…
The congregation gets busy. To the offset, a beautiful journal where each one’s sentiments come out in affectionate expressions! Invitations sent out to the Mother and her chelas world-wide, will honor her with a ball and dinner in a large venue. Feverish preparations are under way! Some high-placed local chelas, in secret rehearsals, make sure they have the skill and the lightness of foot to take her through the ‘box’ and swing and the turns of the waltz; the rest of us will balance, like a pendulum, from one foot to the other, or trying our best, cut a pattern of arabesques on the carpeted floor. Such a beautiful evening! For the moment, the pain of separation, we forget, soothed by the presence of our beloved Guru Ma.
1998- How does it strike the congregation world-wide?
How does it strike one to be declared a Master, a Saint ‘canonized’ while alive?... Our Bapu Morya through Guru Ma, reads to Headquarters’ staff assembled the percentage of their karma balanced. Electric excitement in the air!
Hearts pound with Intimate questions: Will I be called out? Am I a deserving chela?... In order are congratulations for the scores higher than fifty-one and prodding encouragement for fifty to forty-seven. Surprise, oh! Surprise! Pride and Joy in New York! Our own Margaret P, a former Brooklynite, a child of Mother Liberty, leads the winners, trophy in hand with seventy-one per cent of her karma redeemed.
2009 on- Our Guru ascended, but comfortless orphans we are not! From Montana Mother Church, in local and distant travels, distinguished visitors, certain months of the year, come to convene with us in SU seminars, talks and get-togethers. Thus, have we rolled out the carpet for Regional Minister and Wife, other ministers, organizational presidents and the Spiritual Director.
What of the future? Bright it is by our covenant with the whole of Heaven! Two-thousand years will roll by as a ship upon the waves of time while endure the Lighthouse upon the Rock at the Summit and our New York Teaching Center, by the grace of God, the Masters, and of our Beloved Knight Commander Saint Germain, the God of Freedom, the Hierarch of the Aquarian Age!
