“A rare and special Being,” means Babaji, “with extraordinary assignment; blessed are those who have the privilege of just a glimpse of this great Being. There are 70 such graceful Ones blessing the welfare of this planet and making sure that all beings deserve a fair chance to go back to their Heavenly Home.” Leading the soul, helping, easing, invisibly or visibly.
“The recycling wheel is going on in all domains until one is blessed with a Master's presence, who mercifully takes him under His protective Grace and lifts him up high, but not without a mighty struggle with the Lord of Karma who doesn't want to lose his ‘citizen.’ Thus, it goes also, the speed of spiritual progress depends on where one stands, at which level of consciousness, how far one has fallen, how high one has evolved, how much one longs for liberation. And of course...” Hey, still have! “And of course, most important, the powerful Grace of a Master.” It depends on that too.
“A Master of high degree, like Babaji, for example, who is willing to remain in the lower realm of Astral domain to assist other Masters in salvation work, is a great Being...” Even though He's in the Astral Plane, He's a great Being. He's from (the) Fifth Level, super Fifth. Not normal Fifth, super Fifth. The highest Fifth Level. Just for your information. I didn't write it down here. “...in salvation work, is a great Being who forsakes the indescribable bliss of the Fifth Plane, praised and admired by all who know this great sacrifice.” I also praise Him. “He can be in the physical and Astral realm at will – depends on what needs to be accomplished at that moment.”
If you have read the Autobiography of Yogananda, you would think He's a physical being. But He resides in the Astral (Plane). And as I have told you, even if He's a real Astral being, He still can manifest into the physical body for a while, just to hang around or to do something in the physical realm. Hence, the people who met Him at that time thought that He was a long-living Master. He lives in the physical and in the Astral. That's also correct. But mostly in the Astral (Plane). It's easier for Him to work from there. He only manifests into the physical plane sometimes, at will, because it's His job to do that, because He's powerful.
Remember in a Buddhist Sutra there's also a story about Earth Store Bodhisattva, Địa Tạng Vương Bồ Tát. He, Himself, resides in hell so that He can rescue hellish beings. The people who fall into hell, He will rescue them by perhaps teaching them you have to pray and all that. Maybe do some Quan Yin Method in hell – I don’t know how, but probably they try. Over there, we don’t need all these flashlights anyway, because a lot… It’s always bright. The cameraman won’t have to sit there, he just lets the camera roll, and we don’t need electricity. So again, it’s a “green” hell. No pollution.
OK, so what now? “A rare and special Being,” means Babaji, “with extraordinary assignment; blessed are those who have the privilege of just a glimpse of this great Being. There are 70 such graceful Ones blessing the welfare of this planet and making sure that all beings deserve a fair chance to go back to their Heavenly Home.” Leading the soul, helping, easing, invisibly or visibly. Wow! That’s also nice literature here. Written in the dark. “They are affectionately known as the White Brotherhood, the Silent Ones” – the White Brotherhood or the Silent Ones, “in the physical realm.” If you remember the story of Jesus, after He was crucified, there were some angels in white garb, or some beings in white garb, took Him into a cave and healed Him or took care of Him, remember? These are the White Brotherhood from the Astral Plane and physical – Astral and physical. They live on the threshold. They don’t live, they don’t die. They are not physical; they are not Astral. They are up and down, and come all the time. Like, you live on the border. Like, between France and Switzerland, there’s a no-border border.
So one time I lived in Switzerland; they told me, “You just walk across this little lane, then You are in France. And walk back, You are in Switzerland. You always go abroad.” It’s truly like that. When we were in Geneva or somewhere, I remember that. We stayed in the house of a sister or a brother, and they said, “There!” The lane is just this big. You walk across, that’s France. You walk back, it’s Switzerland. Similar to these Silent Ones, They live at the threshold of the Astral and physical planes, and They have mighty power. They have chosen to be there. Not that They are Astral beings.
“But these titles can never denote a fraction of Their Might and Greatness.” We call Them “the Silent Ones, the Silent Bodhisattvas, or the White Brotherhood, but these titles can never denote a fraction of Their Might and Greatness.” That’s what I wrote! It’s written!
“Any beings…” This is another note, crossed it already. “Any beings from adjoining planes of consciousness can visit each other if invited, or for a good reason, but cannot stay even just overnight.” Incredible! “A good spiritual practitioner could prolong his or her stay there, but not ordinary citizens.” Ah, there comes exceptions!
Maybe Chocolates can stay there longer than other people, because they won’t see them. “What? Nobody is here!” (No smiling.) Huh? (Don’t smile.) Don’t smile. You’re too bright over here. (Yes!) That’s funny. They have bright, brilliant teeth, that we all envy. Most of them have brilliant teeth! If they smile in the dark, you don’t ever need any light. There’s no need to carry flashlights when you go on retreat, no? You just smile and walk with… with your teeth. That’s really convenient, and very green indeed. Chocolate spells green. G-R-E-E-N.
“If adopted…” Adopted even, on the Second Plane, or a higher consciousness Heaven. “If adopted by a higher plane being, one can upgrade his or her level and stay there.” Aha! Wow! Sounds familiar to here, right? “The higher being will infuse more Light and energy into this lower being and thus lift him or her up.” Wow! Isn’t that cool? (Yes.) If you guys are lucky, you might be adopted. Who knows where you are going next? So, be nice to everybody in case he goes up higher, he can adopt you. That’s cool.
Is there anything else? “A Council from the Ninth Level, on a mission as the Supreme Master, for example, while on the physical plane, can always take a being from a lower plane to visit a higher plane.” Like, from the Third Plane to the Fifth Plane, even, to visit – at will, anytime. Not a Perfect Master, though. Even a Master, a Perfect Master, a 100% Perfect Master from the Fifth Plane cannot do this, cannot take a being from the Third Level to visit the Fifth Plane. But a Ninth Level Council can do it anytime, at will. Of course! They are the Masters of the Universe! I quote Jesus here: “I am the Light and the Way of the world as long as I am in the world.” That’s what it means by that. If He’s here, He’s the Light. He can do anything. He can brighten anybody’s world.
“It's possible that the Ninth (Level) Council Master can come back to Earth again for a brief visit long after She or He finished His mission here in the physical body.” It’s possible. Can come back and visit. The Ninth (Level) Council Master, not the Fifth Level. Ninth (Level) Council is the one above the Eighth (Level). “It’s never happened and never will.” Even though He can do it, but it doesn’t happen. It won’t happen. It just never will happen. It doesn’t explain why. It’s not written. She did not write it. Probably she didn’t see it.
Ah, she did explain: “They are too occupied with the work of the whole Universe and a more fulfilling, a more glorious job as that.” You know, occupied with Their job. “And a more fulfilling, a more glorious one as that.” I wrote like that. “And it’s Their real work. They are the Masters of the Universe!” Ah, that’s what I just said before! How does she know that? How did I know that They are the Masters of the Universe? I just said that, and it’s written here! Oh my God, I’m so smart!
