In the Culture, History, and Religion of America by Elizabeth Clare Prophet
Throughout the ages, there have been men and women in every race and religion that have mastered time and space, transcended the cycles of karma and rebirth, and returned to the Source of all life. By attaining the goal of life, the ascension, these souls have become Ascended Masters.
The Great White Brotherhood is the body of Ascended Masters guiding this system of worlds. Working with earnest seekers in every field of human endeavor, the Brotherhood is setting forth the progressive revelations of God for the Aquarian cycle and expanding the dimensions of consciousness in all who aspire to self-mastery.
Behind the culture, history, and religion of America lies the Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood By the Ascended Masters' “unseen hand” and specific guidance, America was born, her independence was declared, and her constitution was written. America is the land created as a repository of freedom so millions of souls might realize their potential to become one with God. It is the place where freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom to assemble provide the foundation for the individual pursuit of cosmic consciousness.
Through the dictations and the instruction given by the ascended masters through Elizabeth Clare Prophet, they lovingly extend their consciousness to those who would follow in their footsteps. “What man has done, man can do!” is their message of inspiration to all who seek the victory of immortal life.
