Since the inception of The Aetherius Society some great Truths have been revealed to mankind by the Cosmic Masters, through this important Organization. But as great as these have been, nothing ever has been given to mankind more enlightening in certain ways than the set of Transmissions delivered through the Reverend George King, by the Great Cosmic Master, Mars Sector 6, known as THE NINE FREEDOMS. These were delivered at the American Headquarters of The Aetherius Society in Los Angeles, between February 12th and March 15th, 1961.
During an introduction to the Fourth Freedom, given by Saint Goo-Ling on February 26th, 1961, he made this vital statement:
''Power radiated during Nine Freedoms will have certain effect upon country of America. This effect will be to stop violent earthquakes which were due at this time. So tune in. This does not mean that America is guaranteed free from earthquakes, but does mean that man coming together with right motive can bring about some Divine Intervention.''
The Reverend George King later gave a series of lectures on The Nine Freedoms to selected Metaphysical students in Los Angeles. At the end of these lectures on June 7th, 1961, The Master Aetherius delivered the following Transmission regarding the vital importance of THE NINE FREEDOMS and their effect upon the world. He then went on to give some timely advice to Spiritual workers regarding the all important discrimination so urgently needed by all of us in these days. The following Transmission should be read with the greatest care as it is specially designed to help you to sort the true wheat from the false chaff which exists on the lecture platforms of the world.
THE MASTER AETHERIUS
''Good evening, my dear friends.
At this time I would like to take the opportunity to remind you all that you have indeed received the most important teachings yet given to Terra. I refer, of course, to The Nine Freedoms. It may be some time before these are fully appreciated by your Earth, but they will live throughout the centuries and the older they become the more potent they will seem and with limitation, the more they will be adopted.
It is seldom throughout the history of Terra that such profound jewels of Wisdom are given openly. It was decided at this time that, being as it is, just prior to the Initiation of Earth, the jewels be scattered among the populace so that those ready may pick them from the dust of your literature. From the worthless chaff of numerous incorrect statements and untrue relation of experiences. The Nine Freedoms can be sorted as the True, living seeds of everlasting Wisdom which have been scattered among you. TREAT THEM WELL, OH TERRESTRIAL MAN. PLANT THEM WITH THE GREATEST CARE IN YOUR HEART AND IN YOUR SUPERCONSCIOUSNESS SO THAT THEY MAY GROW, SO THAT THEY MAY BLOSSOM AND GIVE FORTH EVEN FURTHER SEEDS TO GROW AND BLOSSOM AND MULTIPLY SO THAT YOUR WHOLE CONCEPTION MAY BE CHANGED. YOUR OUTLOOK MAY BE RISEN, YOUR HORIZONS MAY BE MADE BROADER, SO THAT YOU MAY LOOK WITH A BRAVE EYE INTO YOUR FUTURE.
At this time for your consideration, if I may be excused, I would give to you certain advice. There will come those among you who whisper. Heed them not. The lies of rumour, you know, can only be spread by the spreaders of rumour. If you give not to these foul whispers your ear, then they will die. Spread not malicious gossip. When you hear it, stand against it firmly and you will advance a step.
Use your discrimination. This will allow you to sort the little wheat from the great amount of chaff and you will advance a step.
Come together in a great co-operative effort so that the tremendous radiations sent down to Terra by Satellite No. 3, during the next Spiritual Push, and those which follow, may be absorbed by you and sent out to all men upon Earth and you will advance another step forwards.
Stand and follow with pure hearts. Hearts made pure by complete loyalty to what you know as a great Cause, a Spiritual Cause, an uplifting Cause and you will advance even another step.
Practice the wondrous practice as given by Jesus and you will advance even more.
Read, Learn by heart, Contemplate upon and if you can surrender to your Meditations the great inner Truths in The Nine Freedoms, the World, my friends, in its basic materialism will not affect you or contaminate you, for you will advance so much that you will be in it, yet not of it!
Hearken not to those who sell wares which are supposed to be details of your past lives. For, my friends, such information cannot be bought by your foolish pieces of paper. Such information will be given to you from within, when you are ready for it. Then it will be the True information and you will be ready to use it. Give these not your ear, for remember, it is today that counts, for today you mould tomorrow. Let the dead past remain dead until you can contact the very living Spark of God within yourselves. Then this will render unto you the True yesterday.
You must choose between mental stimulation and Spiritual ACTION. You people upon Terra are oft-times looking for what you term as excitement. You search here, you search there, things interest you until the interest wanes. Do you know that the interest has waned because some Spark within you tells you that this, or that, is not True. Spiritual Service, my friends, is not romantic - it is hard! It needs patience. It is a very difficult road. What will you do? Be like animals who feel the grass in the next field is greener than their grass - or will you judge full well and having judged, stand fast!
I will tell you for your good, we have made very few regular contacts with Earth men. Very few. Most, by far, of those claiming contact with people from other Planets fall into two major categories:
1. People deliberately telling lies, or
2. Those who have been cleverly fooled by astral entities.
The few contacts, physical and mental that we have made throughout the Earth can easily be picked from the deluded many claimants. By their fruits shall ye know them. To choose is simple. Take this advice, if you wish and use it in the coming months, which will prove possibly just a little strained for many. But doing so. you will prove that you are ready for what could be one of the most important steps in the culmination of your total lives upon the Planet Terra. You see, you will judge yourselves accordingly to the exact Law of Karma. You need not judge yourselves in any way harshly if you act in accordance with the teachings you have been given and these points of advice which I have rendered to you. If you allow your discrimination to be born from the womb of intuition, you will not be steered wrongly.
Lastly, may I say this. In every single contact that we have made with a Terrestrial, we have pointed out that it is Service to Others which counts above all things. You may use that as a yard stick to measure cloth offered by the vendor and if it proves to be measured wrongly by him - then reject it and be safe! Note that - be safe!
After this time, I would like to point out that your Leader has been given altogether a tremendous Spiritual task to perform. He is capable of performing this, but he is only flesh and blood which at times gets weary. Especially that he, like other dedicated workers, will go on working to his very utmost. You can help them, by proving to them that their work has not been in vain. Such a proof shows in your everyday actions, your different outlook, your determination to give Service to Others, your loyalty, your co-operation during a Spiritual Push and the other steps I have advised.
Remember this Terra, whether you like it or not, you owe a great debt to the few. You can never repay this. They will never look for any repayment at all in any material sense, but if the Wisdom which they have been responsible for giving to you has taken root within you and shineth like a bright light within your heart, in ACTION - this is their compensation. Such is the measure of Service. All honest men know this! Waste not your time listening to the dictates of your conscious brain which is always seeking some type of excitement and different stimulation. Listen to your intuition which leads you through all the realms of Spiritual Practice and go forward into a bright - nay - a brilliant future.
Thank you and God Bless you all. God Bless you ALL. Good evening.''
