The Saint Germain Foundation Told Me To Buzz Off

I turned in my library book this morning, and I was told that I could not progress further because I am not a believer.

Which I guess is understandable.  They don’t like the idea that I’m blogging about it, and they don’t like the fact that I don’t believe in it and that I’m really not likely to start believing in it any time soon.

I will say that the conversation I had this morning was a nice one, perhaps a bit tense at times, but pleasant enough.  I don’t think I’ve ever been told to buzz off as nicely as I was this morning.  I did feel like the person talking to me was genuinely concerned, not just for his church, but for me as well.  We parted on, I think, reasonably congenial terms.

So, no score for the Saint Germain Foundation.

From my reading and my conversations, I don’t get a sense that they support going out into the community and “doing good” in the sense that they actively participate in things, so I think my humanist score for them would probably not be very high in any event.  And there’s a chance there’s something in there that I might find harmful.

They went out of their way to tell me that there is no cost associated with any of the seminars and services the church offers.  But their history is one of a church where the parishioners are not just encouraged to give money, but actually encouraged to give up all of their worldly treasures.  And, there was a recurring theme of hoarded treasure in the book.  Whether they still do that or not, I just don’t know.  I was looking for evidence of it.

I didn’t find it, but my search has been cut short.

Their focus on the self, on attaining a sort of enlightenment and ascendancy might well have generated a positive score from me.  Being good to one’s self is one of my criteria.

So, their hypothetical score range would be from -1 to 1.  That’s the best I can do for now.

Maybe someone who’s been a member of the Saint Germain Foundation can add to this.

 

Book Review: Unveiled Mysteries by Godfré Ray King. Part 3 of 3

Chapter Seven is entitled, The Secret Valley.

In his home, King receives a letter telling him to go to an address in Arizona.  So he does, sensing instantly that the letter indicates that there is some higher purpose in store.  When he gets to the address, a man answers the door, and after shaking hands, King realizes that this man is very strong with The Force.  I mean, he is also a follower of The Light.

The man isn’t named, but since I don’t want to keep referring to him as “the man,” I’m going to call him Willie.  Willie has an amazing story to tell.  Here it is:

Some time ago, Willie’s son (I’m going to call him “Junior”) disappeared when he was only five years old.  Willie and his wife (whom I will call “Wilma”) looked everywhere, and tried everything they could think of to find Junior, but alas, they never did.  After a few years, Wilma had grown sick from worry, and died.

Wilma, at her request, was laid in a vault for five days, and then was set to be cremated.  However, on the fifth day, her body disappeared.  Willie was astonished and heartbroken.  Some years later, Willie got a letter telling him to go to a certain spot in the desert, and there he would find his wife and son.  He didn’t believe it, so Wilma called out to him with a magic Sonic Ray and told him she was fine.  Willie still didn’t believe it, rather sensibly thinking he might have started to go crazy.  So Wilma opened a magic tunnel using Light Rays and Skyped with him. This convinced Willie (who didn’t think that this was crazy in the least), and so he set out on a journey to find them.

Book Review: Unveiled Mysteries by Godfré Ray King. Part 2 of 3

yellowstoneChapter four is called Mysteries of the Yellowstone.

King is in his home in a town near Mount Shasta, and Saint Germain pops in.  Saint Germain tells him that in order for King to use the power of dominion, to control people and things, he must first learn to obey The Law Of The One. He does not tell King what that means, but King seems to intuitively understand it.  Then he tells king to get ready for a trip, and vanishes.

The next day, King spontaneously leaves his body, and begins to fly through the air at great speed towards Yellowstone National Park.  Saint Germain is there and tells him that the word “Yellowstone” comes from an old tradition, about fourteen thousand years old, referring to a giant, ancient gold mine that was here and operated by Poseidonis, which was a tributary state of Atlantis.  There was also a diamond mine that yielded yellow diamonds.  The gold and diamonds were important to the country, as their molecular vibrations are powerful and they’re used to advance science.

Book Review: Unveiled Mysteries by Godfré Ray King. Part 1 of 3

Unveiled-MysteriesUnveiled Mysteries

Last Sunday I visited the Saint Germain Foundation “I Am” Temple in Seattle.  I eventually intend to sit in on a seminar so I can review the church, but I can’t go to a seminar until I’ve read three books.

The first book is entitled Unveiled Mysteries and is written by Godfré Ray King.  After doing a little googling, I discovered that this is the pen name of Guy Ballard, the fellow who founded the church.  In this post, I’m going to refer to him as King.

I generally don’t grade churches on their dogma or ritual, because, being an atheist, they have little meaning for me, except in that sometimes they are interesting to experience and write about.  But since they gave me homework, I’m going to write about it.  It won’t affect their review as a church.

Essentially, what I’m going to do here is paraphrase what I read about in the book.  This won’t be an objective critique, or a philosophical study, or anything like that.  I may snark a bit here and there about things that amuse me, as is my bent, or I may point out something neat or interesting, but I’m really not judging their beliefs.  I’m not qualified to do that. And besides, I don’t care what their beliefs are.  My interest is in what they’re saying when they say it, and I’m also interested in the novelty of the experience.

Saint Germain Foundation “I Am” Temple

I-Am-TempleI had a brief but interesting visit to the Saint Germain Foundation’s “I Am” temple on Aurora Avenue in Seattle.

I didn’t get to sit in on a service, because they don’t really have any.  Like the Scientologists, they have seminars and classes instead.  Unlike the Scientologists, I can actually attend their classes and seminars without having to fork over money.

However, I was unable to attend any today, because I’m not yet qualified, and so this isn’t a full review.  It’s a pre-review report.

The “I Am” temple is located a little over a mile from the Oak Lake Baptist Church, which I visited this morning, and as is usual on Sunday, I was on foot.  The Baptist church services ended at noon, and I hung around and chatted with the pastor for about twenty minutes.  The “I Am” temple opens its doors to the public at noon, and I was afraid I would miss something, so instead of taking the twenty minutes or so to walk there, I hopped on the Metro 358 bus down Aurora, which luckily was just arriving as I approached the bus stop.  I got to the temple in about six minutes.
