But deeds done by ignorance can have malicious effects upon the children of light. And therefore recognize: the most deadly enemy of all is the habit of human ignorance that rests in its own ignorance and does not desire to know and to learn and to study—-to keep abreast, to be aware and to watch and pray.
We shall have our victory as long as you remain watchmen of the night and watchmen of the day. -Jesus Christ: 11-24-1983, Thanksgiving, at Camelot via Messenger ECP
The great Law gives to us light in increments because it is so transforming and so powerful and so alchemical that it can produce even a chemicalization….And the light that we will need in the day of our karma is greater than the light that we could invoke on that single day. We have to bank the fires of the light in our temple and increase the light and keep it blazing so that when karma approaches us we survive it by that light. -Messenger ECP: 10-31-1987 at Minneapolis
We use the analogy of a film in a movie projector to describe the action of the violet flame. As you use the violet transmuting flame you are washing the imperfections and streaks from the film of life and from the lens. You purify the lens, and the film is washed and altered by master artisans so that it can reflect the purity of the light rays passing through it. -Messenger ECP: Age of the Divine Mother, Summit Publications, 2006, p. 104
