The Legend says that Shamballa has three gifts for Humanity...ONE is opportunity,When Divine Energy pours down, It builds a bridge,a communication line between the one whom It touches and the Door from which it emanates.....It purifies and raises the fires of your being.It makes you see yourself, your real face and the conditions of your life.It makes you see the future, the vision......And thus Opportunity comes to you to surpass yourself,to leave behind the burdens of ages.Opportunity comes to all men to step forward and to be born again in spirit,or to cross the stream of purificationor to climb the mountain of transfiguration in group formation.Opportunity comes to all initiates to pass through the fiery sands of the deserts,and renounce the pull of matter.....and break the chalice of oil at the feet of the Lord.Opportunity comes to all nations to clean their homes,to break the walls of separation.Take the gift of Opportunityand today decide to be harmless, giving, self-forgetful, joyful,universal - forever - andyou already are in the process of unwrapping your gift.Man in his essence is the Opportunity, an open way toward Infinity.
The second gift is Enlightenment,The destruction of “avidya” - ignorance.Ignorance is identification, attachment, changing of polarity from positive to negative.Ignorance is zero communication with the life of the universe.Ignorance is bottling oneself and floating in the ocean.Vidya is knowledge which leads to enlightenment.knowledge is the growing light.You do not need to learn to know;you know because you unfold, you liberate, you release yourself.Shamballa.....salutations to you....The energy of Shamballa - the Lightning -gives enlightenmentbecause it destroys age-long accumulations of darkness.It destroys the chains binding the Self to matter.Enlightenment......when all your lights on the Christmas tree of your Selfare lit in their proper colour and radiation, forming a chalicefor the blessings of the Lord of Shamballa.Enlightenment is courage, is daring, is humility and endurance,is gratitude, compassion, simplicity, serenity.Enlightenment is the birth of the soul.Enlightenment is the ability to see.Enlightenment is contact with the greater Soul in each man.There are stages of Enlightenment.There are personality, soul and spiritual enlightenments.There are planetary, Solar, Galactic and Cosmic enlightenmets,Personality enlightenment is achieved when man contactsthe Transpersonal Self within -the Inner Guide.infused with the splendour of the Inner Guide.He becomes a shining beauty, a fountain of wisdom, in the world of men.In the third stage of Enlightenment,the human soul becomes aware of himself as the Self,and masters all that is not - self.At this stage he becomes a source of strength,enabling men to stand on the Path.He becomes a source of creativity and leadership.In planetary enlightenment, we are told,his awareness embraces all kingdoms of Nature.In Solar enlightenment,his awareness embraces all centres functioning in the Solar ring-pass-not.In the next stage of Enlightenment, he enters into the awareness of the life of the Galaxy.In Cosmic enlightenment, he enters the freedom, the bliss, of Space.In each enlightenment,The Monad, the real you, as an eye, opens stage by stageand become the all-seeing Eye.Enlightenment is the freedom towards Infinity.Enlightenment is the ability to bring Infinity into your life -to express Infinity through all you do.Take the gift Enlightenment,and today think, feel and act in the light of the Great Presence in your Inner Universe.Decide to see things as they are.Change the angles of your observation.Try to see the happenings in the world.
The third gift of Shamballa is Brotherhood,The energy of Shamballa is destructive to all elements of separatism.It is destructive to all those who carry in their hearts and mindselements of hatred, seperatism, selfishness.As the Aquarian Age increases its radiance into the sphere of our world,it will become more and more difficult to contain hate and to be healthy,to contain separative, selfish thoughts and to be sane,to have greed and the spirit of exploitation and to be creative.The Fire of Shamballa will amplify the energy of Aquariusand rhythmically will strike the earth.As a great hammer it will pave the way for the reappearance of the great Lord, Christ,who gave the command of the New Age:This comment increasingly will be heard in the sanctuary of the soul,and will create tolerance, forgiveness, sharing, cooperation, understanding and unity.Shamballa, the stronghold, there is no higher gift than the gift of Brotherhood,where the world will be our home, our garden, where people will not hurt each other,where all our resources will not be wasted on crimes, on wars, on police forces, on armies.....but our resources will be used for erectingglobal institutions of light, great cathedrals of science, great theatres of art.Still we will have a governing body which will be a United nations.They will present a vision, a plan for the progressive unfoldment of the human psyche,so that man tunes in with greater capacity to the system of Cosmos.thus the purpose of the great Lord will guide the little wills of menin a great symphonic beauty.Only after Brotherhood, will humanity, as a centrein our Solar System make the first contact with the other evolutions in our Galaxy.Man will be able to recognise himself in other human beings.Suffering and pain will no longer be the teachers of humanity.Joy and striving will replace them.Joy is greater than knowledge.Joy is wisdom.Stretch your hand; take the gift of Brotherhood.Every day think, feel and act as if all human beings are your beloved brothers.Never, never express any word that hurts them and creates disunity.Never, never hold your self, or your race, or your nation, above the interests of humanity.Give opportunity to everyone to shine his light.Give light to everyone to see the oneness of the souls of men.Then you, as a brother of men, will lead humanity towards the Age of aquarius,in which man is the keeper, of his brother, in which joy is the daily sunshine,and striving towards the Supreme is the labor of everyone.In seeking the essence of Shamballa through whichever form we find to be ours,we come to realise that it lies hidden right here in the world around us.This realisation opens us to a growing sense of the sacred in everything we see.People and things that we had regarded with scorn andindifference become sources of wonder and awe.What had seemed dead and meaningless comes alivewith a mysterious significancethat links it to us in deep and inexplicable ways.As we become aware of the sacred nature of all that surrounds us,we cease to see people and things as objects to be abused and exploited.We come, instead, to cherish them for what they are,and to treat them with the utmost care and respect.If we can awaken this sense of the sacred in the world around us,then we may have a chance of bringing about the golden age of so many myths and dreams.“To touch the soul of another human being is to walk on holy ground.” Stephen Covey"People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in,their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within" Elizabeth Kubler-RossVery little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.- Marcus Aurelius“We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of Godthat is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.”– Marianne Williamson"We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong.The amount of work is the same." - Carlos Castaneda“Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been….You can’t getthere by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’lldiscover will be wonderful: yourself.”- Alan AldaThe Weight of MoonlightHands and knees upon the Earth,I strain to still my mindlong enough to hearthe flowers'SingingLong enoughto calm this tin-man intellectwho will never knowthe voice of Angels.Measuring,the weight of words upon my tongue.Wondering,Is it possible to measurethe weight of moonlightupon the snow?David PierceMay today there be peace within.May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to beMay you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass onthe love that has been given to you.May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settleinto your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.It is there for each and every one of us.Saint Theresa' s PrayerUNIVERSAL LOVE PEACE HARMONY ~ UNITYhttp://www.thedailylama.net/Shamballa/Shamballa06.htm
