Sanat Kumara ~ Applying Universal Law

In this I say to you, my beloveds, my friends, my allies, my keepers of Universal Law: “I implore you, I invite you: Apply the laws. Let me guide your hand and your heart, your mind and your being. Let us transmute and transform this planet instantaneously. Let the Mother’s Will be done and let justice prevail.”

[Meditation from 9:28 to 28:33]

Sanat Kumara: Greetings, I am Sanat Kumara.

Suzi: Welcome.

SK: And welcome to you, beloved one, and welcome to all of you during this time of dramatic change, of shifts in beliefs and attitudes, in habits and patterns and environments and societal structures, and yes, in law.

Now I speak to you first of all as brother and ally, yes, as Planetary Logos, but does that title, that very honouring title, not make me appear distant? That is why I say to you: “I come to you as brother and ally, as friend.”

Universal Law is teaching you, in a very practical way, how our Mother brings about, births, creates everything from the tiniest grain of sand, from the dust mote, to a distant galaxy. She is, as you well know, phenomenal – and might I even say phenomena unto Herself. [Smiling] But I do not come this day to simply praise the Mother, because that is a given and we would be here for much longer than an hour! [Chuckling]

I come to talk to you, yes, about Universal Law, and how we are applying Universal Law to this collective, to this planet, to the Gaian situation that is in the midst of such dramatic change.

Now I could say to you that we are applying the laws, the Universal Laws, this toolkit, this handy-dandy toolkit to the planet, but in fact that is not so. The planet herself knows fully well how to create. The kingdoms, all of them – from the stone people to the winged ones, to the canines to the lions, the tigers, the bears, the giraffes, the elephants, the whales, the water, the air – they know how to create. That concept of creation is not foreign to them and, as also with you, it is embedded in the DNA.

You have an expression – and a very sad and sorry expression – that something has been “beaten out of you.” And it is true that for many the understanding of Universal Law – and the principles of Universal Law, but that is another conversation – the understanding of Universal Law and the understanding of how to apply Universal Law has literally been beaten out of you.

I do not say this merely to be dramatic. I say this because you need to understand, my beloveds, that for thousands and thousands and thousands of years there has been a denial of your ability to create – and your ability to create utilising Universal Law – these very straightforward precepts of how to bring forth what your heart desires in alignment with your mission and purpose.

We do not wish to negate or to underestimate how entrenched, how beaten-down you have been as a collective, and how entrenched this denial of this self-ability to bring forth has been. And yes, it has been a result of a very exaggerated and elongated process of abuse of authority and denial of self-authority.

Now understand what I say. I am not suggesting that there has been a denial of responsibility. There is a difference, and it is not a slight difference, between authority and responsibility – and I say this very particularly to you of the lightworker/loveholder community. You are more than willing to assume self-responsibility, responsibility for the creation and co-creation of your life and of Nova Earth and of Nova Being, and that is laudable, amazing, spectacular, beautiful, stellar… I could go on and on with the list.

You have not been fully – although this is coming – in the place of your authority to literally execute change. I do not say this in a way of criticism; quite the contrary, because the good news is you are absolutely in the place now of assuming that authority. This is why we have spent so much time talking to you about the assumption and the application and the practicality of your Divine Authority, of your literally God-given right to proceed.

And I mean this in proceeding in small ways of deciding what you want to eat and drink, where you want to live, and in very big ways like changing the landscape, shall we say, of human law, of what has been called – and I would use the term very loosely, with a deep bow to Michael and Gabrielle – “justice.”

Justice is part of my purview and there are many of us – and I include Serapis Bey. When I speak of … (interruption) … let me continue, because there can be no interruption when I speak to you this day, yes, of course, of your mission and purpose, but also of the next step in the collective mission and purpose and what you are really doing.

In assuming your Divine Authority, you are declaring the reality of injustice, of the lack of unified and united Heart of One. You as the collective, and you as the loveworker/lightholder – yes, let’s turn it around! – community, are being asked to step forward and declare the injustice, the lack of love, which permeates so many of your systems.

But let us also speak of the human legal system – and it does not matter whether it is in the United States of America, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, or Switzerland; it is not systems based on the Laws of Love. And so, each of you, in various ways, are being asked to step forth and in fact declare where fairness, where the balance, where the ability to stay in a unified grid of love and heart… where that rests.

And it is not about, my beloveds, ascendency, or preferential treatment of one being over another. It quite literally is creating a world where kindness and gentleness and consideration and laughter, sweetness and sharing are the watchwords, are the operational principles where the sovereignty of the individual is honoured, not dismissed.

Now some of you are doing this behind the scenes, some of you are like a mosquito buzzing around the legal system, and some of you are standing right in front of the Supreme Court. Each of you, in accordance with your sacred mission and purpose – the intention of who you are – are being asked to declare, sometimes in complete silence, by simply being the observer and the guardian of justice, of truth, to call forth what truly is of peace, of harmony, of fairness, of love.

And in so doing, what you are being asked to do is to declare that human laws that are punitive, that are dishonouring to the human free will and sovereignty, to love – if there is anything less than love and kindness – then it is not acceptable.

Now you say to me, “Well, Raj, how do we deal with situations where there has been great abuse of both responsibility, lack of responsibility, authority, and abuse of authority? How do we prevent mayhem in the street?”

Now let me suggest to you, my beloveds, I am Planetary Logos, I am Keeper of Universal Law. I know about mayhem and I have been working with this planet for many, many, many thousands of years, so I do not come at this from a place of naiveté. And I know your concern that if there are not checks and balances – and that is what some would call your legal systems: “checks and balances” – that there would be murder in the streets.

And why is that? Some of you would say, “Well, there are just bad seeds; there are people who just want to be mean and cruel and abusive and take advantage.” And I would like to correct you – and that is not a common thing for me or any of us who are ascended masters to do. Well, Serapis Bey has no qualms about doing this! There is not a single being – in any realm, by the way – on your planet that does not yearn for love, that does not yearn to feel and to be seen and valued as whole, as worthy, as cherished.

Now what happens when that does not occur? It is much the same as a two-year-old acting out because they are tired or moody, or underfed or overfed, or simply throwing a tantrum – chaos, mayhem occurs, whether it is in the aisle at the supermarket or in a tragic shooting of innocents, or the beating of a woman or a child, or the slaughter in Syria; these are all on the same spectrum.

And you say, “Yes, Raj, I get that, I understand, and how do we change that? It’s not a matter of just saying ‘well, we have to love each other’ because there are still these recalcitrants, and there are still those that would go ahead and create murder and mayhem.”

You are in a very dramatic time of transition. You are in the time of Ascension! This isn’t simply a term or a process that we throw around. You are in your ascension and you are leading the pack! And in that you are the wayshowers, you are the pathfinders, you are the pillars and the guardians of the gate.

So what you are doing is laying down the new paradigm, and you are showing and demonstrating literally/physically/materially what is possible. And how you are doing this is, of course, from the sweetness of your being, from the gentleness of your being, from the love of your heart, the brilliance of your mind, and through the application of Universal Law.

Think of this. You are being asked to apply to these situations of unfairness of human legality, in the whole spectrum, the laws. So you look at a situation and you apply a law. Now, traditionally what has happened with the human collective is you have been very familiar, consciously and unconsciously, of applying the Law of Change which is basically organic growth.

It is time for things to be sped up and so what I am asking of you, as you are confronting – and it is confrontation, not war, but there is a confrontation element, yes, with love, to what you are doing. Think of it in this way. When the parent says to the child that has gone astray and put themselves, knowingly or unwittingly, in harm’s way and the parent says to the child: “You can’t do that; there is a better way and I’m going to show you how, because obviously you’re acting out because something is missing in your life.”

So, in these cases, you are assuming your Divine Authority, acting on behalf of Mother/Father/God, and saying, “No. There is a better way.” And what I am asking you to do is to really apply the Laws of Transmutation and Transformation, with the odd exception of throwing in the Law of Elimination, because most of you whom I speak to you this night are not quite there yet.

You are balancing. You are using the Laws of Balance, of Give and Receive, Attach and Detach, Above and Below, and applying it to these situations that are so out of balance. And it is unseen work, except for those of you who are literally being confronted in the physical realm. But when you are seeing these situations which are anathema – whether it is bombing in Syria or murder and mayhem in a prison, the shooting of school children, the torture of women, the beating of a child – you are applying these laws and you are saying, “No! That is not acceptable. There is a better way.” And you can do this without saying a word!

Some of you in your mission and purpose, in your sacred undertakings, are to have a voice. It is what you volunteered for. It is what you said to the Mother: “Let me go back and finally speak my piece because I am sick and tired of this. I want to be part of the active change.” And some of you are doing it quietly, but all of you are doing it!

But rather than the unconscious application to organic change of “oh, it’s nice, change is taking place, let’s wait another 20 years,” I am not prepared to wait another 20 years! I am not prepared to wait another 2 years – and neither is the Mother!

And that is why all of these energies and all of our entreaties to you, all the availability of the teachings, have been made so public – so you are assuming this mantle of authority. But it isn’t simply assuming it and walking down the gangway being a Paris model. It is about taking it to the people; everybody else gets it, it is just the people, and these are people that are cowering and crying and calling out to our side for love.

We shower you with love. We assist you in ways that you can’t even imagine! But you are the implementers, you are the delivery agents, you are the ones that are saying, “Yes. We can show you and we can demonstrate, not just hold nice energy. We can show you and teach you and apply how these changes can happen overnight, eradicating this need for punitive, judgmental behaviour.”

Now, dearest Suzi, I know I have gone on, but where do you wish to begin?

Suzi: Oh, my gosh, I’m so grateful for this, and the beautiful meditation and the timing of this is wonderful. I’m feeling so much love from you, and I’m really grateful and in joy over it.

So I think the timing of this, in particular, is really wonderful because of all the things that are going to be exposed and that are being exposed. I think there are many people that are still unaware, but I’m thinking that a lot of this information is going to be well-known to people who, when they find out, are going to be very upset – and I don’t think forgiveness is going to be on their minds. So I’m hoping that our listeners and enough of us who are compassionate, unified persons are able to hold the space and do all the forgiving that needs to be done.

SK: Yes, because, again, think of it in this way. If the lightworker/loveholder – that would be a misnomer, would it not! – if this community reverts to blame/shame/fault/guilt instead of forgiveness and compassion, then you are simply continuing on. What you are doing is very rapidly and very efficiently rebuilding, literally reconstructing, the old third which is no longer in place. And you are powerful creators and you would be literally recreating that old paradigm that has existed, might I suggest, at least, minimally, since the time of Atlantis; just that sliver alone is a 10,000… 12,200 actually… framework of history.

So when you discover, and there will be many discoveries – what you are calling ‘exposures’ – of what you think of as atrocities, betrayals, etc., be grateful. Go into the gratitude and say, “Thank God, literally, that this has finally come to the surface, that this has been exposed, and we have not only the chance but the responsibility and the authority to right this ship.” And then you move into forgiveness, compassion for those who have erred – and you move into the immediate application of the laws.

And if you don’t know the laws, or you feel: “I don’t know which law to use today,” just say: “I apply the Laws of Love.”

And it is that simple because in that, you are creating a new paradigm where it’s not the blame, it’s not someone’s fault; it’s you truly assuming your leadership position. You can look at the past, because the memories of the past… and that is why there are still memories of the old third; the Mother does not want to eradicate it because She doesn’t want that atrocity to be repeated. So the memory is there; you can look at it and say, “That’s tragic, that was awful, and we are not repeating this!”

Suzi: Right. And I think it’s also good to remind ourselves that over the myriad lifetimes we may have had on this planet, we’ve played roles of all sorts, being holders of darkness and whatever else. So I’m personally really grateful that in this lifetime I’m not doing that. But it could be anyone, and the compassion of “there but for the grace of God go I” … you could be doing terrible things and having to pay for it as well, and maybe you already have.

SK: You are absolutely correct. And one of the criteria, if you can think of it that way, for those that are on planet at this time is those that have experienced both extreme light and extreme dark – and yes, everybody has played the role; there are no newcomers to this game.

And so this chapter of unfoldment is filled with those – you, my beloveds – who are very experienced. And so you know: you know what it is to give forgiveness and you know what it is to be forgiven. The greatest trauma for those that have gone astray or erred is their belief, first that they won’t be forgiven and that they have been forgotten, and that they are unforgivable. So that is part of the tragedy.

Do you understand what I say?

Suzi: (Interruption)

SK: And so, in this I say to you, my beloveds, my friends, my allies, my keepers of Universal Law: “I implore you, I invite you: Apply the laws. Let me guide your hand and your heart, your mind and your being. Let us transmute and transform this planet instantaneously. Let the Mother’s Will be done and let justice prevail.”

Go in peace.

Suzi: Thank you so much.

SK: You are more than welcome. Go with my love.

Suzi/SK: Farewell.

May Ascension Energies – Peaceful Heart by Jamye Price



April had quite a bit of odd Ascension symptoms, like quick jolts of energy. As Areon spoke about the energy of Creative Action, they emphasized relaxing into creation. It’s not the first time they’ve covered this, it is a core aspect of Ascension because you are more consciously utilizing the subtle realm, the 99% invisible engine that creates life.

As you use your subtle bridge of communication (your thoughts, emotions and intuitive senses), you are “speaking” directly with the malleable subtle realm. When you relax into that, you don’t just apply the rules of the physical realm into the subtle realm (ie controlling thoughts or emotions), you open when you relax. Therefore, you are more open to new solution and receiving support. Receiving is a big one for many.


The energies of May are Peaceful Heart. In this Year of Amplification, utilizing your most powerful electromagnetic engine is imperative. The theme of heart/mind unification is big this year. The mind is your perfect mechanism of linearizing the physical realm. It requires that you build your sovereignty and heal your subconscious patterning to develop your mind to a fuller potential.

The heart is your instrument of connection.

It is infinite and timeless, as it speaks in broad strokes of emotions that are vast libraries of information. Peaceful Heart is another way of saying:

Relax into your infinite nature.


As you relax into creation more, you are allowing your human self and your divine self to merge more directly in the physical realm. You are softening your human experience into an expanded connection. Look for more information about connection in May.

The Power of Inner Stillness by Areon

What connected you to your current experiences? What connections have you put together in your mind that serve your growth or fuel your fear? What connections can you open to further that would help you understand yourself, another or life better?

Connection is the invisible aspect of the human experience.

We are in separate physical bodies having a unique experience. Yet there is more to that story—the connection. We are opening to our connection as a species, as part of Earth, as part of our universe as our cosmic connection becomes more obvious to us. As we move through the Ascension process, we are connecting more consciously with the subtle realm, and connecting more directly with universal law rather than just physical law on earth. With connection comes understanding.


Understanding is a powerful connection. A key component of understanding is feeling or experiencing, at least in a broad sense. Quite often, people will mentalize their experiences and not allow feelings to flow to completion—which can take time as layers of healing express. You know you’re through something when you feel a neutral appreciation of what an experience has offered you.

To get to understanding, a state of connection; you may have to go through layers that contain some anger, resentment, sorrow or fear. It is important to let those feelings show you where your subconscious patterning is not supporting your empowerment and love them into resolution. They are just old information and as you observe and allow them, you create a Peaceful Heart that is open and courageous with Life.

As always, Ascension is an inside job—so begin with some understanding for yourself.

Feel some appreciation the unique Light you bring to the world. Appreciate your courage to do the inner work that truly transforms. Nothing stays the same in the physical realm. As you become empowered and amplify your Love into your personal world—life changes.

When your Peaceful Heart leads the way, Love follows.


Observe the rapid flow of change that is not slowing down anytime soon in May. However, like that spiral tightening into faster flow, when you relax you are sustained in gravity-defying flow that supports you, movement and stillness are embodied within you. Your physical and infinite nature meet, time stands still and moves past you, freeing you to connect within and connect with life through your Peaceful Heart.

Happy May!

‘Diary of a Yogi’ Chapter 3 – Eden – Altair Shyam

Buddha Cat by Artist Kathy Morton Stanion @ EBSQ


Chapter 3 – Eden

  Altair had no easy time adjusting to this new information. To be told one can heal is one thing but to know that he was able to call Beings from another Star to visit is quite another. Altair knew his path lay between stars and magic. He just didn’t know quite how that would come about yet. 

  Altair didn’t get time to worry about that for long as there were school days to fill with music and art and books. His favorites, now placed with honor alongside Autobiography of a Yogi and the Kybalion, were Lord of the Rings, Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Michener’s The Drifters. 

  Before three years were up he had mastered a number of instruments and was about to start his first band. That band had a lot of fans, especially young girls, one of whom was AD. She was in a gang of some notoriety and that was when all the trouble started. 

  “One evening we were messing with ouija board just for fun,” she told Altair amidst hysterical tears, “and the glass started moving of its own accord. It was possessed!” She continued sobbing. “The glass spelt out one of our names. It totally freaked us out so we smashed the glass. Woke up the neighbors who thought we were having a fight. That’s when it happened. To Carl. He’s in the Mad Ave gang too. So on his way home he hit a telephone pole. Not another car on the whole street. He’s in hospital.”

  “What sort of car?”

  “His dad’s! So his family found out and now they’re real mad at all of us. They think we caused it. They don’t know how awful we feel!

  So the rest of us were in a fix then, coz we thought this thing must be coming for us. And sure enough, Alan, that’s Carl’s friend, he tried to steal the church’s offertory one Sunday after mass and the cops came and he got arrested.”

  “So what did you do?”

  “It got worse,” AD took a heavy breath and her head slumped. “John, is in critical care.”

  “Were you with him?” John was AD’s boyfriend. 

  “Yes,” was all AD could say and the tears kept flowing down her cheeks and wouldn’t stop. 

  “I’m next,” AD said finally. “John took an overdose and I’m next.”

  AD was Samoan and came from a large family of Catholics. Psychic experiences were the norm rather than the exception. But black magic was black magic. Altair knew AD’s family would have frowned on her excursions into Ouija boards. She would not get any support from them. Suddenly a strong conviction came over him. He felt Master R.’s words weaving through and dispelling AD’s fear. Healing, casting out demons, freeing people by giving them faith. 

  “You’ll be OK,” said Altair. “And if you get frightened again come back and I’ll see if I can help you.” He told AD what the Master had promised he would be able to do. 

  “Healing? I want to learn that too. There’s so much I want to do. I don’t want to die! I’m too young! We only did the Ouija board as a joke. We never meant to cause anyone any harm! You’re such a good person. Why did I ever get mixed up in this?” AD managed to calm down after lots of breathing. 

  “You’ll be OK.”

  She nodded and left. 

  Altair was convinced AD would be fine but he had the feeling this wasn’t the end of it. 

  That night when he was alone he said his prayers and sat down to do his daily meditation. Since reading Yogananda’s book he had started the lessons with Self Realization Foundation and he was also practicing Alchemy through the lessons of Builders of the Adytum. This gave a strong foundation for the feeling he had that his path to the stars and magic was unfolding surely and clearly. He had also began a study of both Eastern and Western astrology so on this night he was contemplating how to unify these philosophies and practices. 

  Remembering what Yogananda had said about divine consciousness and being receptive to what the divine sends you, or doesn’t, Altair focused his mind on meditation, prayer and alchemy and the symbols of the stars. He found that if he truly relaxed with awareness by practicing the AUM technique and breathing calmly, new visions and insights would come. 

  Tonight the only message he received was to go to sleep. AD was on his mind. Her fear and worry whirled round in his mind like a playground roundabout. He found if he didn’t avoid it but embraced it like a warm cuddly cat then its energy would shift and he could appreciate its angles and glimpse its deeper meaning for both AD and himself. So he decided to go to sleep. 

  He was no sooner asleep then a shaft of light brighter than the sun struck his room and he awoke to a radiant presence. The majestic Light poured from an eternal Source blazing and blinding him. It sent a thrill through his body of something far beyond anything he had known, heralding the arrival of someone who was always there for him, a powerful presence and joy he had always felt since a baby when Mother Adamson and his own mother Mary had first whispered the words “baby Jesus” to him. That same deep thrill filled his heart with joy as Jesus appeared in the room, radiating the dazzling light of the Christ Consciousness from his Sacred Heart and said to him 

Jeshua by Glenda Green

  “Be healed according to your faith”


  “By the power of Christ begone”

  In that moment and forever more Altair knew that he would never fear death or demons or the world of the Dark because the Light that shone on the darkness was so much greater. 

  Altair sank back into his bed with a sigh and fell immediately into a deep sleep. 

Several days later, with much coming and going, friends visiting and relatives dropping by, there came an evening when his parents were out helping a family of Cambodian refugees, charity work they had all done for years. His mother Mary received the Queen’s medal for her service to several hundred Cambodian families in placing them in jobs and houses in the community so a sudden trip to help someone in need was not out of the ordinary. The house was empty which seemed scarcely possible. Altair was sitting on the sofa when there was a knock at the door. 


  AD could barely get up the grey steps and through the double doors. She looked like she was weighed down with a burden. As she came through the door Altair noticed a slight shift in the air, as if something ominous was attaching itself to AD. 

  “It’s got hold of me,” said AD as she sunk down into the sofa. 

  “What is it?” said Altair even though he felt he knew. 

  “A demon,” said AD and slumped even lower, her hair falling forwards and her face sinking into her hands. She began to cry. Big whale tears the size of olives welled up and stalked down her cheeks. “Do you know why it is harming us?”

  Altair didn’t know but he could guess. The Agents of the Dark were cunning and manipulative. They bred on fear and vulnerability and loved to meddle. They preyed on young people who exposed themselves to the unknown through drugs or black magic without knowing what they were dealing with. They were insidious and deadly dangerous. 

  “Lie down,” said Altair. “I can help you. Close your eyes.”

   AD sighed and lay down. Her face was damp with sweat and her eyes were glazing over. Altair looked at AD. She was lying very still. He placed his hands on her forehead to begin. He had no real idea of what to do. Just follow his heart and trust in Jesus. 

   AD’s breath was very shallow. It began to follow an uneven pattern with ragged gasps. Altair moved one of his hands from her forehead to her heart. 

   Then he said in a very loud voice. 

   “By the power of Christ, begone!”

   AD shuddered. Her body tightened as if she were going to have a fit, her breath came in gasps and her eyes closed tighter in pain. 

   Altair cried aloud again,

  “By the power of Christ, begone!”

  AD’s body began to spasm. She frothed at the mouth. The room filled with dark wild shapes and sounds that created confusion and fear. 

  Altair stayed steadfast and said a third time in a commanding voice, 

 “By the power of Christ, begone!”

 AD gave a fearful cry, groaned and was still. 

 Above Altair’s head there was a burst of light and for an instant he could see the radiant face of Jesus. Tears of gratitude filled his eyes and he remained for long moments with his hands on AD’s forehead and heart before removing them. 

 AD had sunk into a deep sleep. She didn’t wake for nearly an hour and a half and when she did she looked at Altair with soft, comprehending eyes. 

 “Thank you,” was all she could say. “It’s gone.”

 Then she left. She was never bothered by demons or evil spirits again. 

 That night Altair lay in the comfort of his bed in the east wing of the house. It was a bitter night with heavy clouds, swirling winds and driving rain. 

  Suddenly something hurtled out of the dark and struck his window. It sent his heart into a flutter of shock. He got up to peer out of his window into the darkness. It was like a sharp pain, buzzing and murderous, trying to fill his head with confusion and fear. As his sleepy eyes adjusted he saw it. A face, black, angry and furiously trying to get in the window. It scratched and clawed on the smooth glass. It was so monstrously angry Altair thought it would break the glass. It had two gaping holes for eyes and a twisted malevolent mouth. It saw Altair and Altair saw it. And in that moment he spoke. 

  “By the power of Christ, begone!”

  And with a flash of light burning bright in the darkness like magnesium set to a flame the creature vanished with a howl.

Etheric Flight by Sheranda Ann Kumara – See Link below

  Of all the colleges in the Sky City the largest was Sacre Couer. It was built around a mountain and was coveted for its sports fields and its musical heritage. The Chapel was at its center, and not far from there Brother Stephen could be found narrating stories of heroes in Latin. Beyond his rooms was the library and it was here that Altair’s parents had invested their money to help fund research. The money was used to buy books for the astronomical and astrophysics wing, the subjects after Altair’s own heart. As a center for sports and music there was no equal and Altair loved to boast of it to his friends from other schools. He regarded his teachers as being of little help or consequence except for Mr Lake, the English and literature teacher, whose interest in Altair led to him many years later publishing his first best seller. 

  Altair was more concerned with his path between magic and the stars, as well as playing rugby on Saturdays, flute on Tuesdays and tennis with his father at every other opportunity. Rugby he loved for its speed as Altair could run as fast as the wind and became the top try scorer in that year’s competition. Flute he loved for the smell of his teacher’s perfume and because every flute player seemed to be a girl. Tennis, well both his dad and Mum had been tennis champions so it seemed only proper to continue their legacy. As for magic and the stars, he had to let those come to him in their own time and way. And so they did. Because after AD came Grace. 

  Altair was searching for Eden one day. He liked nothing better than frolicking in nature through gardens and roses and sweet spring flowers. In many ways he was a true poet. He loved the call of the wild, to get lost in the call, to let the caller and the called disappear. This was true surrender to the powers of creation within. And who better to do it with than Grace, an exquisite elfin creature that his best friend introduced him to at a party and whom for the rest of the summer he would spend every hour with, climbing hills to seek splendor, weaving pussy willow through each other’s hair, racing through fields of long grass where the paspalum stuck to their clothes and they would pick them off afterwards one by delicious one, and dancing through the night. 

  Altair was unaware that beneath the surface of his world the politics of fear were stirring, because he was enveloped by the innocence and charm of love at play in his heart. 

    Altair faced three enemies in his battle for a path between the stars and magic. The first was the bullies. On certain occasions, for example, Desmond, whom he had infuriated in Grade 6 for revealing who had actually thrown a rock through the Headmaster’s window when the whole school was about to get punished, would chase him round and round the paddocks and fields of the outer school with a promise to beat Altair up if he caught him. He never did. Desmond was big and heavy and used to beating up kids which was not a habit Altair wished to encourage, least of all when that punishment was directed at him. He was grateful to Desmond however, as he learned how to run very fast, and build incredible stamina, two factors which helped him compete in the Sky City athletics competitions at a very high level. Altair was not unused to bullies. At elementary school an undertaker’s son named Perry helped build his initial speed by chasing him around and around the elementary school opposite his house, merely for the fun and games of it. Altair was also grateful to Perry, because in one of those circuits he met his first girlfriend, Linda, from Canada Ontario, who was also a speedster and accompanied him on one of his escape routes and then on their first date which was to race each other to her home. Perry’s bullying days ended when one of the St Joseph nuns caught him terrorizing the kids and held his head underwater when the class next went swimming until he promised to stop his errant ways. Such were the old ways of discipline. Force met with force.

The next enemy Altair could not outrun. They were the Brothers, earthly Agents of the Dark, whom he called The Inquisitors. Altair was forced to attend classes he often loathed and as good fortune would have it, because he was bright, he was put on individualized programs in which he taught himself, and so had little if anything to do with The Inquisitors except on exam day. Inquisitors were known for their particularly cruel methods of punishment for children. Of course there was the strap, the cane, and the wallop, during which the Master of Discipline would force you to bend over and then hit your bottom with such force you would collide with the opposite wall and bang your head. Altair received one of these for whispering to his friend in assembly that the Master actually did do this heinous act, because no one ever saw him do it, there were no hidden video cameras or iphones and everyone was too scared to say. But there were equally devious and manipulative methods of control used by other Masters such as Hang-glider. He was known for his big ears. If you spoke in his class he would come and drag you out by the ear and then yank and pull vigorously on your ear with such force that your ears would ring and you would get a headache and you would have to promise not to do it again. There was also the notorious Golden Ruler. This was a Master who wielded a particularly hard ruler that if you were not paying attention he would come and force you to lay your hand on the desk and rap your knuckles so hard that bruises would come and he would watch until tears came. The Inquisitors were Masters of Torture, sadistic and twisted and unfortunately there were far too many of them for one kid to deal with. The exact opposite was Peeps, a mild-mannered Brother who was famous for having absolutely zero control of any class and so the class did what they wanted for the entire year of Grade 9 and learned exactly nothing. Altair’s class used to fly paper aeroplanes and launch innumerable objects, a hobby Peeps grew so tired of that one day he said to everyone, “OK, if you want to fight, go ahead and fight, outside!”  So the class did, and they all went outside and had a ding dong fight and one of the bullies Tozer, ganged up with his mates against the friend that Altair was coaching in maths, Martin, laid into him and broke his arm. That was the last day Altair ever saw Peeps.

The most difficult enemy to deal with was the Dark itself sent to plunder human consciousness through the forces of fear and ignorance and innumerable distractions. The demons tried to invade Altair’s world through Claude who had been besieged by demons since birth, and Julianna who had attracted a demon onto her property so that it lurked around her house, and Lisbeth, who unfortunately had built her house near a graveyard and incurred the wrath of local spirits who became increasingly angry and moved and smashed objects in her house. All these Altair could help by using the same words Jesus had given him to cast out demons and liberate spirits and in the case of the warriors, as it had been an ancient battlefield, he went and had a chat and they compromised. Lisbeth moved house and the warriors never disturbed anyone again. Such was Altair’s life and he would never wish for another as his life was far too interesting and unexpected and filled with adventure and love and mystery.

Then Grace vanished.

It happened after a summer holiday in which everything was sheer delight and perfection. The flowers could not have been rosier, and the beach could not have been more romantic. The hills were rolling and alive and the grasses they cavorted in were surely planted for them alone to hide in and kiss and share secrets. As with all holidays and young lovers the joy also had to include going to school and keeping in touch and promising to return every holiday as they lived in different islands and so they parted with every good intention. And Altair sent her letters every day.

With none in return.

First there was disbelief, then disappointment, then grief. It was like an arm or a leg had been cut off. A part of his life snatched away. And his heart hurt so badly. He was like a ship with no anchor or an adventurer with no compass. Stars and magic no longer seemed to have quite the same allure.

  So it was that days went by with no love or stars or magic. Until the visit.

  Altair had been deeply devoted all this time to Alchemy on the one hand and meditation and yoga on the other. He would get up every morning to practice for 2 hours and the same in the evening. He used the family’s second lounge, would shut himself away with their two cats, Milligan and Ziggy, who would curl up, one at his feet and one on his lap, and away he would go, deep into worlds beyond this one. He found that by following Yogananda’s instructions exactly, all the experiences of the Masters would manifest just as Yogananda had said, and at the same time, while following the practices of Alchemy to the letter, equally wondrous worlds would be revealed in his consciousness for him to explore.

  So he could hardly have expected what came next.

  One thing that Altair noticed as he deepened his practice was that ideas began to manifest in reality. Dreams would come true. He would think about someone and they would call. He would dream about a package arriving with a particular gift and a few days later it would appear unexpectedly in the post. Very simple things. Nothing to boast about. Everyone has these. But the frequency was increasing.

  Meditations were the same. Altair wrote in his diary.

  ‘Diary of A Yogi’

  “They begin like any normal meditation, deluged by disobedient thoughts and rebellious ideas. A stormy mind with a spirit as wild and free as a young horse. Then calmness, as if the ocean waves subsided all at once and a vast presence, radiant and alive, was lapping at my consciousness. Then the breath, unceasing and endless would stop and would be drawn out of my lungs and another breath would take its place, one in which I was not the breather. My sense of self would move outwards, into the room, the street, the world and stars, so that the people and the stars moved as one with my consciousness. I could see the phenomenal whirling of the planets and fiery spheres as well as feel them all melting into one luminous sea. Joy would fill my soul, and continue unabated until I would drag my consciousness back to this mortal coil. God as Bliss, God as Light, God as Love, these were realities within the infiniteness of my Being. Worlds upon worlds throughout the cosmos were at play within my Being. The heavenly realm was made manifest in my heart. The nectar of immortality, amrita, flowed through my Being. The Voice of God resounded as Om throughout, just as I had heard when I was two year old child. To have an experience of cosmic consciousness like this was a priceless gift, my heart would swell with deepest gratitude. I could see how the sacred breath and mindfulness were the key to calming the ocean and how the perception of the One Light in the Shared Heart arose from this. As I dipped into silence daily, with my guru Yogananda filling my heart with the Light of God, deep devotional bhakti and regular yoga practice had prepared my mind and heart for omnipresence. The force of God attracted me like a bee to honey.”

  After these meditations Altair would go immediately to bed and sleep deeply. On this one particular night he awoke with a sudden start. A bright light filled the room. There standing in front of Altair was Master, Yogananda. Tears filled Altair’s eyes.


  “Master,” was all Altair could muster.

  “It is time to make a choice,” said Yogananda, looking straight at Altair. “You have been following the path of meditation and alchemy. In order to go deeper you need to choose only one.” Then he gave Altair a most magnanimous smile and disappeared.

  In the morning Altair took the winding path beside the pohutukawa tree to Suzie’s door. He hoped she would understand. 

  The door opened as he stood on the top step wondering just how he should say it. 

 Suzie’s beautiful face was framed in the doorway. 

 “I thought it might be you,” she said.

 “I had a vision.” Altair’s heart was beating. “Yogananda came to me. He said I could only choose one path. I need to follow him. I…I have to stop. The lessons. The Alchemy.”

 Suzie smiled that beneficent smile Altair loved so much. She always made him feel warm no matter the occasion. 

 “I thought it might come to that,” she said. “Some are more suited to this way and some more suited to that. You have always struck me as a Yogi.”

 Altair nodded not sure what else he could say. 

 “You may find you will come back to it, in time,” said Suzie. “All that you have ever wanted, or looked for, is here now.”

“Outward longings drive us from the Eden within; they offer false pleasures which only impersonate soul-happiness. The lost paradise is quickly regained through divine meditation. As God is unanticipatory Ever-Newness, we never tire of Him. Can we be surfeited with bliss, delightfully varied throughout eternity?” (Sri Yukteswar to Yogananda)
