Following is a new section written by an ex I AM student, David. Revealing all the inconsistencies within the I AM literature is a daunting task. We therefore encourage anyone who has something significant to share, to get in touch with us via email. No matter how bizarre or inappropriate, please don't censor yourself. We are determined to keep this site growing and untainted by authoritarianism.
David has set out his analysis under general headings. He then lists quotes from the I AM books that firstly takes one stance, then he may make a comment in violet, then he follows with quotes that contradict the originals. David assures us he is trying to stay objective and even though he slips into cynic mode occasionally (which is understandable) he promises he will be more objective in the future.
As the Ascended Masters are the Acme of Perfection, they naturally would not do anything except that which is just, loving and wise. [Saint Germain, Bk.1 pp.143]
The Ascended Master is absolutely Infallible at all times; because He
has passed out of the octave of vibratory action in which mistakes can
occur, for He has become Wholly Divine. By the raising of His Body, all
atomic structure has been changed into the Electronic. He sees with Limitless
Vision, and knows all because He uses -only- the All-Knowing Mind of God.
One of the Ever-increasing Joys of the Ascended State is that, as We
study any particular condition, it is always accompanied by illustrations
of the exact activity We are to use; and there can never be any mistake,
for the end is seen in the beginning.
Seems clear enough to me. The Masters are perfect and infallible while all-knowing even before a condition has begun let alone completed.
What?! This is completely contradictory to all the quotes above. The law of forgiveness is for mistakes. Mistakes cannot exist in their realm so this statement is illogical. Moreover, this is a conscious deliberate act committed against the wishes of another. Finally, you will "try to do better the next time"? That is simply ridiculous talk from a mighty god being about his and other "perfected" beings' actions. Sounds to me that this is a poor attempt by the Ballards to explain some of the earlier contradictions in the discourses.
This is a pointless statement. It is a complete waste of energy on the part of everyone involved. An all-knowing being such as Victory would not only realize the speed was too great, but must have anticipated such a thing and adjusted accordingly the pace from the beginning. Also, he states that he is going to "try" and slow down ..hhmmm strange choice of words from a perfected being.
Basically Ascended Master Bob is telling these people that they have big heads. And yes, it does sound quite rude! It actually sounds like a biased Chicagoan (Ballard) commenting on the people of a long time rival city.
... but do not continue to eat, Dear Hearts, until you feel uncomfortable. Just stop a little before that. You know, I have recently been thinking that I shall have to take this Good Brother in hand, too. [Saint Germain Bk.6 pp.37]
The above quote and the countless others similar to it (directly telling us what to do) are in direct conflict with Ascended Master Bob's comments.
Sounds to me like something a child would do. Knowing good and well what the answer to the question of permission would be but performing the action anyway is clearly wrong behavior. This is rebellious, selfish and completely lacking wisdom and compassion.
The Messengers have what they have today, by the most dynamic Application ever made by human beings on the face of this Earth (applause). [Victory, Bk.9 pp.139]
Think of it, the desires of twenty years of these Messengers have been
fulfilled! Because they have served mankind so earnestly, so willingly,
so obediently; they have opened the Door-way to the Instantaneous Answer
to their Calls.
this Messenger standing before you has an understanding so far
beyond any person in America today, that if He were to release it, I tell
you it would sweep the egotism of mankind from the face of this Earth.
Two days and two nights later, we emerged from the "Eternal Flame", wearing our New Bodies of Immortal Endurance. The inharmony of Earth can never register within These permanently. [Saint Germain, Bk.2 pp.396]
...the achievement since the Messengers arrived in Chicago has been the
most stupendous thing ever on this earth! Do not think this sounds sacrilegious;
but it is so much greater as the Beloved Ascended Master Jesus has said
that at any one point of His Activity that He stands many times in absolute
quiet pouring forth His Radiance to the Earth and to Saint Germain for
this gigantic Achievement.
The dictations are choked full to overflowing with comments like these. Seems to me to be a rare thing to receive a dictation that didn't shower unlimited praise on these two. The hypnotized audience even rose for a standing ovation for the "ego-ending" abilities of the messengers!
The messengers can have instantaneous answers to their calls and many times talked of restoring their physical youth but won't even go so far as to change their hair from the old age gray that it was.
Every individual can do This, who will! It is how Mr. and Mrs. Ballard, the Messengers, have been enabled to carry This Activity forward; because they move within That Tube of Light. Twice a day, they use the Violet Consuming Flame to keep every discordant thing dissolved, which had ever been accumulated thru their activities and embodiments. [Great Divine Director, Bk.8 pp.173 September 18th, 1937]
Less than a month later Ballard still uses the violet consuming flame after all his past had been consumed? Remember, supposedly inharmony can never register within them and all his past accumulation has been consumed.
Now that was not a physical body, but it was tangible and visible to this Good Messenger and the others who were present there, which were seven or eight people; and I was as vividly conscious of all that were present and all that was going on, as you are here. when I awakened in the morning, vividly in my consciousness was every detail of that experience at the Cave of Symbols. [Ascended Master Bob, Bk.12 pp.3]
For someone so "vividly conscious" of "every detail" you would think he would be a bit clearer on the number of people present. Was it seven or eight? Could it have been six? Maybe nine?
If in your world there is no such thing as "if"
then why did you say "If it is granted"?
Remember that this is an all-knowing wise master wasting energy and time with useless comments like - "Do you know-of course you don't".
In all of the dictations in this book prior to this one Victory says "Hundreds of Thousands of centuries" when he stated it above he was off by a factor of 100 until he quickly corrected it.
This is love? This is compassion? No it is FEAR. Plain and simple. It is just one of the many times the "great" beings threaten anyone who might use their rational nature.
What a ridiculously pointless comment -- Unless of course you are trying to instill fear & awe in your audience. Wise? Doubtful.
More fear. If nothing can harm the work then why all the constant fuss?
Here comes the fear monger again. Coupled with the implication of evil for one who condemns this work this thinly veiled blocking out of any outside sanity is pathetic. This is most certainly the technique of a cult. Allow no outside influence on this instruction. You are to shut out any other thinking except that which we they you is acceptable.
Hey how about making a dispensation to help these "unfortunate" ones who do not understand the mighty power of the light. Nay, on second thought punish them.
All knowing but still requiring the data in hand? Better to guess at it than know before your discussion that you were going to bring this up and gather the data first.
You "cannot conceive" mankind's limited situation? What? You have got to be kidding right? Then to follow it with a boasting-skill-restoring comment such as "I now have full divine memory " is pure nonsense from a perfect being.
Here once again you are talking about numbers you not only should know but you bring up something that you're not exactly sure of and then end it with a little of that all important "mystery".
Here we go again, an infallible all-knowing being questioning out loud the "wisdom" of telling us something. Also again letting you know that Santa, I mean the Masters are keeping a list.
That's a scary thought. Ignore one of our incredible tools for diagnosis because we all must have perfect health. There's that infinite wisdom in action again.
Well it has been around 70 years since the alleged source the big bad black magicians have been removed and well .We still have the stock exchange. Must have been some momentum.
Powerful rays of loving limitless light summed up in a "swat".
First of all, you would have to appear in order to slap someone's back so no fear of that happening. Secondly, what in the world would make you want to slap anyone's back in the first place? Finally, by the way you described that steak ("nice juicy") it certainly sounds like you still miss it.
This entire quote just sounds ridiculous coming from an ascended Master. Do you not think sending a flame or ray of love would be wiser than incurring possible if not unavoidable aggressive feelings after using the words "Shut Up"?
Oh now that sounds just lovely. A perfected loving being of light using a suffocating death metaphor.
Dr. Albert Hofmann invented LSD in 1941. Over 60 years later Dr. Albert Hofmann, at 92 years of age is very much alive and doing well. This is just one example of many that prove this quote as being complete hogwash.
After reading the above quote keep it in mind when you read just about any dictation. Nearly every one has a "secret" that we are given partial details of and told we cannot learn of it any further. If this doesn't cause curiosity then I must not know the meaning of the word.
What a statement! The ether belt is about as sound and popular as the flat earth theory these days. There is overwhelming evidence about the suns temperature. The sun being "cool and refreshing" is just too ludicrous to continue an intelligent response.
Does this not sound like a thoroughly frustrated person
vainly attempting to act like the gossip is not bothersome? Is it comical?
No. No. I answered twice because a supposed non-serious question was asked
