The ascended master Serapis Bey presides over
the retreat at Luxor, which focuses the ascension flame through the
Ascension Temple. The etheric retreat is congruent with the ruins of
a magnificent building and courtyard built by Ramses II in Luxor, and
with a pyramid a few miles away. The retreat of Luxor is known for intense
disciplines that mark the death of the human ego to prepare the soul
for permanent reunion with God. In the upper room of the pyramid is
the king’s chamber, where students experience the initiations
of the transfiguration and the resurrection. The ascension flame in
the Ascension Temple was carried by Serapis Bey from Atlantis before
the sinking of that continent. Here, the Council of Adepts conduct the
last judgment of candidates for the ascension. Only after all initiations
are passed does a candidate enter the flame room for the ascension ritual.
At the given time, the candidate’s cosmic tone is sounded and
the flame of Alpha descends from the ceiling while the flame of Omega
rises from the floor. As the soul begins to ascend, seraphim trumpet
the most beautiful rendition of the Triumphal March, which was captured
by Verdi in the opera, Aida.
to attend the retreat at Luxor and the Ascension Temple
the name of the Christ, My Own Real Self, I call to the Heart of my
Mighty I AM Presence, to the Angel of the Presence, to Beloved Archangel
Michael, Kuan Yin and the Maha Chohan, to take me to the etheric retreat
of Serapis Bey at Luxor, Egypt, according to the will of my Holy Christ
Self and the direction of the Maha Chohan. I ask to receive the initiations
of the Ascension Temple, especially as they pertain to harmonizing with
the "difficult" people in my life, and for the victory of
the ascension flame within my temple.
Serapis, help me to remember upon awakening all that will help me to
fulfill my mission on earth and the mission of my twin flame. I accept
this call manifested through the power of the Christ and am thankful
for its realization. In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit
and the Divine Mother, Amen.
