FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS THE I AM ACTIVITY A CULT?
DOES IT COST SOMETHING TO JOIN THE ACTIVITY?
At no time has the Saint Germain Foundation ever solicited students or asked for a dime from anyone. This Ascended Master Instruction is Free to all and will never be commercialized, for the Ascended Masters give all as a Glad Free Gift of Love and ask nothing in return but obedience, loving co-operation, honesty, and sincerity.
HOW DID THE ASCENDED MASTERS BRING THE INSTRUCTION TO MANKIND?
This "I AM" Instruction was brought forth to the World through our Beloved Mr. G. W. Ballard, who contacted the Beloved Ascended Master Saint Germain in the Visible, Tangible Body on Mount Shasta, California in the year 1930. These personal experiences are recorded in the first two books of the Saint Germain Series - "Unveiled Mysteries" and "The Magic Presence."
HOW CAN I CONTACT AN ASCENDED MASTER?
The Student should at all times understand that the Student never chooses the Master, but the Master chooses the Student. Did the Student understand what consciousness he was to maintain, it would come about very much sooner. For contacting the Ascended Masters use the following affirmation: “I AM” the Presence preparing the way and bringing visible contact with the Beloved Ascended Masters!
IF THE ASCENDED MASTERS ARE ALL-WISE AND ALL-POWERFUL, WHY DON'T THEY CORRECT THE DISCORD UPON EARTH AND MAKE HUMANITY'S SUFFERING CEASE?
The Ascended Masters always work in perfect cooperation with the Cosmic Law of Love. They do help the individual who wishes to serve the Light to harmonize his thought and feeling, and bring the body into obedience to the "Mighty I AM Presence." They protect him thousands of times from destructive currents of force and activities of which he has no knowledge, but They cannot and do not fulfill his Plan of Life for him. An Ascended Master never, never intrudes upon the Eternal, Sacred Prerogative of the individual's Free Will.
IF EACH HUMAN BEING HAS A PERFECT GOD PRESENCE (THE "MIGHTY I AM") POURING INTO IT GOD'S OWN PERFECT SUBSTANCE, WHY IS NOT THE HUMAN BEING THE OUTPICTURING OF THIS FULL PERFECTION?
That Perfect Substance and Energy from the "Presence," as it flows into the body of the individual, would remain Pure and Perfect and always outpicture Perfection if it were not for the requalification, through discordant feeling and inharmony with which the individual clothes his God-given energy. If the feeling and thought of the personality are kept harmonious, then the "Mighty I AM Presence" expands Its Perfection through the outer activity of the individual. If they be discordant, the personality becomes like a steam engine without a governor, and destroys itself. The latter is the condition the larger part of humanity is expressing today. The responsibility for the use of this Divine Energy rests entirely upon the individual, for he is a creator!
WHO IS THE "I AM" STUDENT BODY?
The “I AM” Student Body is comprised of people from all creeds, religions and from all walks of Life.
WHY SHOULD THE "I AM" INSTRUCTION NOT BE TRANSLATED?
Everything suffers in translation, because when things are translated, you do not have the truth of the original. All you have is the translater's concept. When the word "I AM" is spoken or thought in another language, it has a different vibration than in the original English.
WHAT ARE "I AM" DECREES?
In the "I AM" Activity members are taught to use the Authority and Power of God, the "Mighty I AM Presence," to decree what they want manifest in their beings and world. In giving Decrees, one should realize that he is really talking to the "Beloved Mighty I AM Presence" – God in Action. A Decree is either a Fiat of the Voice of the "I AM Presence" speaking through us, or a direct Call to the "Presence" and the Ascended Host for the help we require.
The Scripture says, "Decree a thing and it shall be established unto you." That was the edict of the Godhead in the beginning. Mankind has long, long forgotten it. Decreeing is a more powerful form of prayer.
