Subject: “Moving Through the Fire of Initiation.”

Message received by Chris Maurus.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about progress. Each one of you, students on the path, shall pass through various stages of initiation as you move from circle to circle in your walk toward perfection — to become like the Creator. As He calls each of you to ‘Be perfect, even as I AM perfect,’ you shall, at some point, ‘move through the fire’ and purge yourself of the old imperfect ways of thinking and being to embrace a more suitable form from which to understand and express the Will of the Creator. Growth is the result of change and progress requires a new understanding and perspective from which to establish this more perfected way of co-creative expression.

“The phrase ‘as above, so below’ conveys a profound understanding of how everything in the universe progresses. Just as the great galactic mother wheels of creation go through their explosive and violent phases of star formation, where great energies collide and distribute material throughout space to form what shall one day become stable planetary systems, those systems then evolve and become ready for life implantation and development. Similarly, the souls of the Father’s children undergo great change — sometimes explosive change to move them into a more suitable form in which to express the more perfected ideas of the Creator.

“Many of you may be going through one such form of initiation, finding yourself at a crossroads where you are questioning all that you believe and doubting everything — experiencing wave after wave of disillusionment about what is real and what is imagined or hoped for. If this is happening to you then consider yourself blessed, for you are moving through the fire of initiation. All your beliefs are subjective to your conditioning, your environment and your experience. The Indwelling Spirit of the Creator — the I AM is the pure and true reality of all creation and so does the I AM guide you from circle to circle, step by step, using various methods to move you along the framework of the unique ‘Life Plan Idea,’ which is being worked out through you. Once you have exhausted the potentials of the interim step in this life plan, the Father’s Spirit shall ‘move you’ along and make ready the spiritual ground for a new understanding that shall bring you into alignment with the next phase in that plan.

“As a being with the potential for fusion, the ultimate goal is for you to ‘fuse’ with your Father Fragment and become a totally new creature in the universe of universes that can more perfectly express a Creator’s unique idea (your life plan). You are being made ready for fusion, my friends, and so to achieve this you must become more ‘attuned’ to the expressive intentions of the Indwelling Spirit. This attunement process shall bring great change and sometimes total disillusionment to purge you of those things and beliefs that would inhibit you from moving to the next circle of your development. Fusion requires diverse levels of understanding — not just intellectual, but a more immersive understanding of divine love, compassion and mercy. These attributes of divinity must be explored through your experiences and in your relationships with other souls who are also going through their own unique trials of initiation as they learn from the Great Teacher within.

“Understand, my friends, that you shall come out the other side and be one step closer to your complete attunement with the Indwelling Spirit where you can explore and become that perfected idea the Creator has called you to co-creatively express.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”
