  1. Q: What is this "Ancient Wisdom" you keep referring to?

    Ancient Wisdom is the time-tested knowledge that was taught throughout the ages. The tenets of this knowledge are planted by Advanced Souls called Mahatmas into contemporary teachings throughout the ages. Some disciples like Blavatzky were flawed even by the admissions of the Masters (read the Mahatma Letters).

    The foundation of the Ancient Wisdom is in no particular country and time period but the legacy and power is demonstrated best in Ancient Egypt. Just look at the Pyramids. The enormous task and knowledge to design and build such ancient wonders speaks for itself.
    The same teachings are in theosophy, Agni yoga, Gnostics and some of the secret societies. - Namely the Masonic Temple and perhaps others.
    There are thousands of people trek to Tibet and revere the Dalai Lama. My teacher had met him in person and attested to the amazing presence the man had (still has).

    The purpose of Man is to return to God (Infinity) using the inner, higher self that has godlike qualities. We all are to return to the source and be One. This is achieved by lifetimes of reincarnation and striving to overcome ones ego and attachments to physical existence.
    They call this; "falling off the wheel of Karma". The pitfalls of this Cosmic Cycle are our own acts and deeds that generate either bad or good Karma.
    This is, in a nutshell what people would learn when seeking Vedic knowledge or study the esoteric Tibetan Buddhism.
    If one reads Jesus’ sayings carefully and with an open mind, one can ascertain that the majority of his teachings in fact correspond with The Teaching.
    Meditation and Straight Knowledge is the only required guidance and affirmation to those who seek this path.
    It is not for everybody and nobody’s religion is bad or wrong only perhaps their zeal and personal interpretation can cause them to stray and try to dominate and control others.
    Do not take my word, contemplate it and see if it makes sense for you, if it does not that is OK too. It will one day in, one lifetime, when ready.

  2. Thank you. You then, are a teacher of God, a real time-saver. A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one. His qualifications consist solely in this; somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else's. Once he has done that, his road is established and his direction is sure. A light has entered the darkness. It may be a single light, but that is enough. He has entered an agreement with God even if He does not yet believe in Him. He has become a bringer of salvation.

    They come from all over the world. They come from all religions and from no religion. They are the ones who have answered. The Call is universal. It goes on all the time everywhere. It calls for teachers to speak for It and redeem the world. Many hear It, but few will answer. Yet it is all a matter of time. Everyone will answer in the end, but the end can be a long, long way off. It is because of this that the plan of the teachers was established. Their function is to save time. And each one saves a thousand years of time as the world judges it. To the Call Itself, time has no meaning.

    There is a course for every teacher of God. The form of the course varies greatly. So do the particular teaching aids involved. But the content of the course never changes. Its central theme is always, "God's Son is guiltless, and in his innocence is his salvation". It can be taught by actions or thoughts; in words or soundlessly; in any language or in no language; in any place or time or manner. It does not matter who the teacher was before he heard the Call. He has become a savior by his answering. He has seen someone else as himself. He has therefore found his own salvation and the salvation of the world. In his rebirth is the world reborn.

    There are many thousands of forms, all with the same outcome. They merely save time. Yet it is time alone that winds on wearily, and the world is very tired now. It is old and worn and without hope. There was never a question of outcome, for what can change the Will of God? But time, with its illusions of change and death, wears out the world and all things in it. Yet time has an ending, and it is this that the teachers of God are appointed to bring about. For time is in their hands. Such was their choice, and it is given them.

    Except for God's teachers there would be little hope of salvation, for the world of sin would seem forever real. The self deceiving must teach deception. And what else is hell? The teachers of God are not perfect, or they would not be here. Yet it is their mission to become perfect here, and so they teach perfection over and over, in many, many ways, until they have learned it. And then they are seen no more, although their thoughts remain a source of strength and truth forever.

    Certain pupils have been assigned to each of God's teachers, and they will begin to look for him as soon as he has answered the Call. They were chosen for him because the form of the universal curriculum that he will teach is best for them in view of their level of understanding. His pupils have been waiting for him, for his coming is certain. Again, it is only a matter of time. Once he has chosen to fulfill his role, they are ready to fulfill theirs. Time waits on his choice, but not on whom he will serve. When he is ready to learn, the opportunities to teach will be provided for him.

    In order to understand the teaching-learning plan of salvation, it is necessary to grasp the concept of time. Returning to the original "oneness" with God corrects illusions, not truth. Therefore, it corrects what never was. Further, the plan for this correction was established and completed simultaneously, for the Will of God is entirely apart from time. So is all reality, being of Him. The instant the idea of separation entered the mind of God's Son, in that same instant was God's Answer given. In time this happened very long ago. In reality it never happened at all.

    The world of time is the world of illusion. What happened long ago seems to be happening now. Choices made long since appear to be open; yet to be made. What has been learned and understood and long ago passed by is looked upon as a new thought, a fresh idea, a different approach. Because your will is free you can accept what has already happened at any time you choose, and only then will you realize that it was always there. You are not free to choose the curriculum, or even the form in which you will learn it. You are free, however, to decide when you want to learn it. And as you accept it, it is already learned.

    Time really, then, goes backward to an instant so ancient that it is beyond all memory, and past even the possibility of remembering. Yet because it is an instant relived again and again and still again, it seems to be now. And thus it is that pupil and teacher seem to come together in the present, finding each other as if they had not met before. The pupil comes at the right time to the right place. This is inevitable because he made the right choice in that ancient instant which he now relives. So has the teacher, too, made an inevitable choice out of the ancient past. God's will in everything but seems to take time in the working out. What could delay the power of eternity?

    When pupil and teacher come together, a teaching-learning situation begins. For the teacher is not really the one who does the teaching. God's Teacher (capital T) speaks to any two who join together for learning purposes. The relationship is holy because of that purpose, and God has promised to send His spirit into any holy relationship. You point to this when you say, "using the inner, higher self that has godlike qualities. " In the teaching-learning situation, each one learns that giving and receiving are the same. The demarcations they have drawn between their roles, their minds, their bodies, their needs, their interests, and all the differences they thought separated them from one another, fade and grow dim and disappear. Those who would learn the same course share one interest and one goal. And thus he who was the learner becomes a teacher of God himself, for he has made the one decision that gave his teacher to him. He has seen in another person the same interests as his own.

    Peace, sooner than later.
