    Profound. simply …profound

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Thanks, Kathleen. So glad you got something out of the video series!

  2. Maria Odila Pereira Miguel says:

    Reading PoW 61-9, page 59, I got to this paragraph that reads as follows: “Comprehension and oneness with the mind of God demand that you give unto the Higher Mind a portion of that energy that you have heretofore channeled into the ways of the flesh. This is for the building of a cone of awareness, a sacred fire cone within the aura of the mind as a forcefiled that cannot fail to atract the energies of higher spheres.” As soon as I read that I felt so happy because I thought that is a great teaching to help us to achieve that God-controlled attention master Morya asked us to perceive.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Thanks so much for sharing, Maria! I agree. This is a great key from beloved El Morya’s dictation to help us get to our God-controlled attention.

  3. Graciella Carrau says:

    Thanks for these wonderful videos, I have enjoyed and learned, I look forward to the next series of videos. And thank you very much for the list of resources to become an adept, it is very helpful.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Thanks for your wonderful feedback, Graciella. It’s great that you have enjoyed the list and the video series!

  4. Kelda says:

    The entire series has been great. Thanks to you both and to Summit University. In Part 3: Increase the Light! – I was reminded of the importance of the visualization of the thoughtform of the decree while doing it. The Resource List does have a book “Thoughtforms” by Besant and Leadbetter. Is there anything else you might recommend to study? This is one area right now that interests me (along with the Djwal Kul exercise) to put into practice for mastery: tips/tools for learning proper visualization. I look forward to the next series.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Kelda, thanks for your positive feedback! Regarding your question, there is a great chapter on “Visualizations for the Science of the Spoken Word” in The Science of the Spoken Word book you might want to check out. “The Use of Thoughtforms in the Expansion of Consciousness” is a lecture by Mark Prophet that you also might enjoy. Good fortune in your studies!

  5. DC says:

    From Master El Morya’s Pearl of Wisdom dictation May 10 1992, he indicates the following:

    “Know the process of spiritual, physical, mental, emotional fasting”.

    “Fast the mind and heart that they might be emptied”.

    QUESTION: How does one undertake / apply the above instruction?

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Thanks for asking such a great question. Let me do a little research and get back to you. Blessings, Justina

  6. Zoya Reed says:

    My favorite part was about what Carla said: adept is not demonstrating his/her power to the curious, because it is never ending endeavor; as she said, people just ask for more and more instead of developing their own inner power; adept, for example, is sending a concentrated thoughtform to uplift humanity.
    We are called to develop this adeptship to serve humanity.
    I am looking forward to continue with Djwal Kul breathing exercise and find those next steps of adeptship I personally need to take in order to be a better servant.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Thanks so much for sharing, Zoya. Good fortune with practicing Djwal Kul’s breathing exercises and your other next steps on the path of the adept!

  7. Angela Senyut says:

    When Carla announced this new initiative during the Easter conference, I was very excited about it and in a couple of days I already had the Resource List in my hands. Wow! what a wonder work you all have done.
    I also listened to the three videos, God bless you Carla and Justina, very interesting conversations, I’ve learned a lot. It has been quite inspiring and I am already working on one of the topics from the Resource List.Thanks to the Masters who have inspired you to do this magnificent job. Good karma ladies. Thank you!

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Angela, thanks for sharing your inspiring feedback about the Resource List and video series. It’s so great that you are already working with a topic. Good fortune to you on the path of the adept!

  8. Elizabeth Grubb says:

    So far I’ve listened to part the one and two videos. Stilling of the emotions has been a really good concept that I am now at tempting to implement. In the second video what stood out for me is practicing excessive love. I realize that is what will give me the momentum now that I need to go forward jumping over hurtles. I have not formerly always embraced those with a religious mindset, but now I understand that there is a way to work in unity with others that will be in harmony with them and which can simultaneously be uplifting to both of us. Keep up the great work!

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Thanks so much for letting us know what has impacted you so far in the first two videos, Elizabeth. It sounds like you are getting a lot out of the video series. I hope you enjoy Part 3! Let us know what you think of it. Blessings, Justina

  9. Ted Lindenbusch says:

    I have enjoyed the video series very much. I am anxious to share it with my Father-in-Law who has been my encouragement. I was able to download and print for him the Pearls of Wisdom after the first two videos. However the third one, Djwal Kul’s, will not print no matter what I try.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Ted, thanks so much for your positive feedback and for letting us know about the Pearl. You were unable to print the third Pearl of Wisdom because of an error on our part. My apologies. I just fixed it and you should now be able to print it and share it with your Father-in-Law. Please let us know if you continue to have problems. Blessings, Justina

  10. Pierre Kalache says:

    Dear Carla and Justina
    Thanks for this wonderful teaching and concise enlightening concepts.
    In his statement “You will sit down and pray with that one his Muslim prayer, his Buddhist mantras”, beloved EL MORYA gave us the key to approach people according to their religion.
    Most of the time we have the opportunity to pray with Christian believers during the Mass, in a wedding, baptism, funeral…… ceremony.
    Are we allowed also to partake with them Holy Communion during those ceremonies?
    Are the body and blood of Christ in the Holy Communion of our Church different from the body and blood of Christ in the Holy Communion of Catholic Church?

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Hi Pierre, thanks for your positive feedback about this video series. You ask some good questions about Holy Communion. I need to do a little research into this and will get back to you soon. Blessings, Justina

  11. António Ferreira says:

    Cada vez aprecio mais estes ensinamentos muito bem apresentados e explicados. Sorry por escrever em português mas, tenho dificuldade em expressar-me em inglês apesar de gostar muito desta lingua.Thank you,very much. My congratulations.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Thanks so much for letting us know, Antonio. We are grateful that you took the time to post your feedback in Portuguese.

  12. António Ferreira says:

    Muito obrigado por mais esta partilha.

  13. Linda Marshall says:

    Thank you for sharing and, of course, the presentation. It has been, over the many years that I have been receiving your guidance and teaching, always a welcome addition to my learning toward, hopefully, wisdom in my heart that is filled with love.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      We’re so grateful that you enjoyed this video series, Linda. Thanks for letting us know!

  14. Moira says:

    Thank you very much. God bless you for sharing. I look forward to other teachings coming forth. May I ask what is the difference between Adeptship and Sainthood? Beloved Gautama Buddha in POW Vol.46 No.40 calls us to ‘Practice Sainthood Daily’ How does that relate to Adeptship?

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Good question, Moira. We’ll be talking a little more about this in Part 3 of this video series. Sainthood is similar to Adeptship in the sense of complete dedication to the goal we set ourselves, but there are differences between the two. When we think of Sainthood, we often think of the saints of the Christian church who pursued the path of the mystic. The path of the mystic is different from the path of the adept in several key ways. Carla Groenewegen, the director of Summit University, recently explained these differences in her March 30 presentation introducing the Adeptship Resource List. She also talked about why both are important for us to pursue as we walk our spiritual path today. You can check out her presentation here:

    • Moira says:

      Thank you Justina and Team!!!

  15. Antoinet says:

    Thank you, Carla and Justina! I like the clear and concise presentation.I would like to know how to not be moved, and at the same time to not suppress the emotions.At home, we can make calls and give decrees to address the issue. But, how do we process our intense emotions at work?
    Justina, you mentioned a little bit about how you hold your peace, while your emotional body might be in distress. So, what are the specific techniques to deal with the energies in that specific moment? How do we deal with the enormous tension that might come up sometimes, if you don’t have the opportunity to walk away for a minute to process it?

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      Hi Antoinet, thanks for your question. There are some great resources listed on the Adeptship Resource List regarding developing the mastery of the emotional body so that we can be unmoved in any situation. If you’re looking for a good place to start, I’d recommend checking out the resources listed in the desire body section of the “Where to Start” page. If you haven’t already, you can access the Adeptship Resource List at Good fortune in your your pursuit of adeptship!

  16. Maria Odila Pereira Miguel says:

    So short video, so great concepts and teachings. I am thrilled.

  17. Cheris says:

    I am so grateful for the enlightmening.. I pray the deep understanding and ability as keeper of the Light to be lifted unto this level of control, mind over matter.

    • Justina Torres, SU Team says:

      We’re happy you enjoyed Part 1, Cheris. Good fortune in your pursuit of adeptship!

  18. Antonio L Freitag de Mello says:
