Good morning and welcome to our children’s story.  Today our story is about Zarathustra, an Ascended Master and buddha.  We Zarathustra2will be hearing about one of his embodiments when he was a prophet though we do not know a lot about this life because written records were not kept at that time. You will see some pictures of him on the screen throughout the story.

Legend has it that before Zarathustra was born, a very bright light shone all around his parents’ house. His birth was a very special event. Most babies cry at birth but the baby Zarathustra laughed. This was an indication that this was a birth of a divine person.

No one knows the exact place and date of his birth. It is said to have been in what is now East Central Iran and earlier than 1000 B.C., more likely between 1700 – 1500 B.C.  That’s a very long time ago.  That’s one-thousand, seven hundred years before Jesus was born.

It is said that Zarathustra was from a family of knights.  What was the mission of knights?  (Allow children to answer.)  Yes, they were to defend the innocent and weak, behave in a humble and merciful manner and vow to serve God at all times.  These were all characteristics of Zarathustra.

Today, Zarathustra is recognized as one of the greatest religious geniuses of all time.  He was a prophet who spoke face-to-face with God.  The Greek name for Zarathustra is Zoroaster, meaning “Golden Star,” or “Golden Light.” He was the founder of one of the oldest religions called Zoroastrianism. Much of what Zarathustra taught lives on in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Zarathustra had many challenges when he tried to spread his spiritual teachings.  But he did not give up. He brought forth the teachings of Ahura Mazda, the name that the Persians had for Sanat Kumara. Zarathustra was known to have seen God in the person of Ahura Mazda, face-to-face.

Zarathustra was one of the priest class who formulated mantras. As an ascended master, he gave to us this beautiful mantra called, “O Mighty Threefold Flame of Life”. In 1985, he told us that he will place his electronic presence over us, realigning our chakras and assisting us to balance our threefold flame. This decree is a celebration of the threefold flame of life and we give it to increase our threefold flame.

We know that our threefold flame is the spark of life from God sent out from the I AM Presence through the Christ Self and anchored in heart chakra. Another term for this is the heart flame and the Christ flame. The threefold flame is the spark of man's divinity and is his potential for Godhood. It is composed of three intertwining flames: the blue flame of power, the yellow flame of wisdom and the pink flame of love. These three flames also correspond to the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We recite this decree as a prayer.  We are calling to the flame of life as the gift of God given to us and we are giving devotion to it. (Hand out decree.)

Three-fold-flame

Let’s recite the first verse together.

 

Oh Mighty Threefold Flame of Life

Thou gift of God so pure,

Take my thoughts and energy and

And make them all secure.

 

Who are we talking to in this prayer? (Allow children to answer.) Yes, our threefold flame also known as our Christ flame. What does it say about the threefold flame? (Allow children to answer.)  A gift from God. And what are we asking our Christ self to do? (Allow children to answer.) Yes, to take our thoughts and energies and make them secure or safe.  Have you ever thought that you could talk to a flame?  Zarathustra did, didn’t he?  Do you know who else talked to a flame? (Allow children to answer.) Yes, Moses talked to the flame or fire in the bush, to his I AM Presence.

Let’s go on and recite the next three verses.

 

Under bond of Brotherhood

And understanding fair,

Send thee forth unto my soul

The gift of holy prayer.

 

Communication’s strands of love,

How they woo by heaven’s law

A tender blessing for the good,

Releasing holy awe

 

That draws me near the throne of grace

To now behold thy sacred face

And without fear dispense aright

The passions of pure God-delight

Which set me free from all that’s been

The sinful nature of all men.

 

What draws us closer to the throne of Grace?  Yes, words of Love.  Can you visualize strands like pieces of thread weaving together?  Only instead of thread that we sew with, they are threads of God’s words of love. We also can see the weaving of the threefold flame.

And whose face will we see?  Yes, the face of God, our Mighty I AM Presence.  We make contact with our I AM Presence through our Holy Christ Self.

tube of light

 

Let’s recite together the next two verses.

 

Christ, raise me to self-mastery,

The living passion of the free.

Determination, now arise

And lift me ever to the skies!

 

I AM, I AM, I AM

Enfolding life and being all

With the God-command

“Amen!” that shatters human pall.

 

Who is going to raise us to self-mastery? (Allow children to answer.) Yes, our Christ Self.  Who is enfolding all of life?  (Allow children to answer.) Yes, our I AM Presence.

Let’s read the next verse.

 

I AM, I AM, I AM

The free – no bondage holds me back;

I AM the fullness of Love’s law

Supplying every lack,

And consecration in full measure

Is my will and God’s own pleasure.

 

Who gives us our freedom?  Yes our I AM Presence.  And our I AM Presence gives us EVERYTHING we need in accordance with God’s Holy Will.  Let’s read on.

 

Saint Germain and Jesus dear,

Hold my hand with Morya’s here

And let the love of Mary then

Be the wings to raise all men.

 

Can you imagine holding hands with Saint Germain, Morya and Jesus?  Let’s do a short meditation. Close your eyes and put out your hands. Visualize Saint Germain and Jesus holding on to one of them, while El Morya takes the other.  Now visualize beloved Mother Mary lifting you like the wings of a beautiful bird toward your Holy Christ Self. Now you stand before your Christ Self. Offer a short prayer of gratitude and anything else you would like to pray for. (Pause.) Now, see these beloved ascended masters lowering you back to where you are now sitting. You can open your eyes now.  Could you see that happening? (Allow children to answer.) Let’s recite the last verse.

 

Until they all unite in Love

To serve that purpose from above

That comes to earth at any hour

Responding to the call of Power;

Send thy shining Wisdom then

That is God’s love

Expanded for all men.

What is God’s love? (Allow children to answer.) Yes, it’s his shining Wisdom.  And our purpose is that all unite in Love, the love of God. Our purpose is to serve God and to become more of God.

Let’s give the closing now.

 

I thank thee and I accept this done right now with full power. I AM this done right now with full power. This is the full manifestation of the Law of Love that raises me to my eternal Victory, now and forever!

 

What is our eternal victory?  (Allow children to answer.) Yes, our ascension.  This is a beautiful decree that you might want to place on your altar to remind you to say it so that you can become closer to your Holy Christ Self and I AM Presence.

 

Thank you for being here and sharing in our story. Have a wonderful day.
