“I am Ramtha the Enlightened One. I was known as Ram. I was the first conqueror this plane ever knew. I conquered three-quarters of your known world, entity. My march lasted for sixty-three years. I ascended on the northeast side of the Indus River in front of my complement of entities that was two million strong. My peoples now make up the populace of Indus, Tibet, Nepal, as it were indeed, and even that which is termed Southern Mongolia. My peoples are a mixture, as it were indeed, of Lemurians, of that which is termed Ionians — later to be that which is termed Macedonia — and that which is termed the tribespeople, that which is termed, as it were indeed, the tribal people of that which is termed Atlatia. My blood, entity, is in all of them.

“I am the Ram, entity, what they call the God. I was the first God ever known, entity. I was the first man that ever ascended, entity, that had been born of woman and born of man upon a plane of consciousness to ascend, as it were indeed, not from any man’s teaching but from an innate understanding of life’s purpose in everything. My ascension was 35,000 years ago in your calendar of understanding. What is ascension? Taking all that I am into eternity like the wind. If I listened to man, entity, I would have perished in that life. Everyone here perishes, for they know they are going to, and everyone here lives for the opinions of everyone else. What a folly. I learned to love myself when I content myself to something great and majestic. Whatever man in his being contemplates himself upon he will become it, for he is the God hidden behind the mask of mankind.”

Battle Against the Unknown God

“In my life as a little boy, I watched my mother being taken into the streets and her sweetness taken from her. I watched in my life, as it were, of where we lived and the despise that was around me. And I watched when my mother was taken. I watched the child grow inside of her belly and knew who it was. And I watched my mother weep. Why? That was very obvious. Would there be another sibling in the street to suffer as she had suffered in this promised land? I watched and helped my mother bring forth that which is termed a little sistren, in your language, to life. I helped my mother because she was too weak to bear the child herself. And the little girl came forth yelling into the world. She wasn't happy. It was very obvious. But grave upon my being was that of my motheren’s being, for weakened so was she that to the infant that sucked at her tender breast there was no milk, for she had starved, as it were indeed. And my sistren that was suckling at my mother’s breast was very weak. Why, say you, we have this in our life? For we are the peasants; we are the nonessentials; we are the no-entities of a governed land.

“Who governed this land? Those of means who had all of us live about their lands and run their fields and say they would not grant us even a stalk for our own living. And what, say you, did they with these things? They locked them into granaries. And, lo, they fed themselves with fastidious fingers upon their fastidious faces. I say unto you this was injustice. And who be this God they have spoken of? I am angered, for my mother weeps for there is no milk in her breasts. I scrounged in the streets and slayed dogs and wildfowl and stole that which is termed, as it were indeed, the grain from the proprietors late in the evening, for I was very deft on my feet. And I fed my mother, who in turn suckled my little sister. And the little girl, as it were, became diarrhetic. She could not hold what was coming into her body and passed it quickly from her body and lost all of the life in her body. And so they were gone.

“I did not blame my little sister for the death that would soon follow of my beloved mother, for the little girl suckled from my mother. All of her strength was given to the new life, that new life could continue forth. And my mother perished with the babe at her breast. There was nothing. There was no more. My hate for the red peoples — they are called Atlatians — was increased into my being like a great viper only as a little boy. And there was nothing left, for my brother was taken into subserviency into another city at the prey of a man and his needs for what is called loin gratification.

“My lineage worshiped and loved that which was beyond the stars, beyond your moon. They loved what could not be identified. It was called the Unknown God. As a little boy I did not blame the Unknown God for his inability to love myself and my peoples and my motheren and little sistren. I did not blame him; I hated him.

“And in my times, no one died nobly of my peoples. There was no such thing as nobleness, virtue, indeed. So I found a great mountain that loomed in the distance, a very mysterious place, for if I could climb there I would get in touch with the Unknown God out here and proclaim my hatred for him at his unfairness. So I began my journey. I run from that of my hovel, and there be a great mountain in a distance I barely see. And my journey, as it were indeed, hath been of ninety days. Of ninety days, as it were indeed, of devouring locusts and roots and urnments of ants did I find this mountain. If there be a God, he would live there above all of us as those who governed our land lived above us. And, lo, I sought him out. Yet he was not there except for the great cold. And I wept heartily until the whiteness, as it were indeed, iced itself from my tears.

“I am a man. Why have I not the dignity of one? And behold there came unto me a sweet maiden as you have not seen, whose gilded hair, as it were indeed, danced about her. And the crown that be upon her hair was not of lilies or of rosebuds or of irises but a no-known flower. And of her draperies, indeed, her gowns were translucent and mellow and free. Behold, she came unto me and behold she gave unto me a great sword. It sang; it sang. Yet it took nigh, as it were indeed, nine hands to hold its handle, it was so great.

“And she gave it unto me. This is what she said: “O Ram, O Ram, I beseech you — who have learned and woken our Spirit of the pity of our beings — the truth. There must be a truth that lingers in the land. Thus your prayers have been heard. You are a man of means and conviction. Take you this sword and wear it well.” And she was gone with herself. And I was blinded in my madness and my illusions in what I had seen. And no longer did I shiver against the great cold, for I found warmth there. And thus when I looked again where my tears had iced themselves, there grew a flower of such sweet refrain and color that I knew the flower, as it were indeed, would be what is termed hope. The sword Crosham, the Winged Carrier, it was the Isness that formulated itself into an apparition of the most beautiful sorts that gave me the sword and told me, “Go and conquer yourself.” And the rest is history, don’t you see? There was no entity that lived in that which is termed a singular form that exists that gave me that sword. It is the harmony of the Isness that produced the Winged Carrier.

“I came down from the mount with my great sword to the hovel of my mother who had perished. Who was the suckling upon my mother’s breast? It was you, for you are of my kingdom and my house and my dream. And as a little boy I gathered up that which is termed, as it were indeed, timbers and I laid them together. And I laid the timbers on top of my motheren and then stole away in the night and gathered that which is termed fire. You know what it is? It is a little different than this. And I brought it and cuddled it and I said a great prayer to my motheren and my little sistren and I loved them greatly. And I lit that which is termed the timbers, for if I did not do so swiftly, the stench from them would cause agitation in the area in which they lived and they would fling them into the desert, that the hyenas could prey upon them and tear them apart so that they were not bothered. I set them to fire and burned them. I burned my mother and my sister upon a funeral pyre, and I wept.

“Now for that which is termed the rest of the story, there are a lot of you who know it well. But what drove me to conquer and to master, which was a part of my soul emotion, was the desire to make it even. I created war, indeed, for there were no warring factions against the arrogance of the Atlatians — none. I created it. I came from the great mountain, intimidated by the Unknown God, given a sword and told then to conquer myself. I could not turn the blade around and hack my head off; it was too long. My arms would not reach, as it were indeed, to that which is called the stiffling of the sword. I wept a great deal but I got honor in my sword. No longer weak of bodily movement or frail, I became a Ram in all the sense of the word and made war upon the tyrants of all my peoples who were enslaved by them. And when I returned, I laid siege to Onai."

I Had No Teacher But Nature
 

“When learning about the Source, I did not have a teacher to teach me in regard to the Source or the Father. It was an experience of simplicity that all take for granted, as it were indeed, which is a good and proper term to be used in this society. I learned, as it were indeed, from the weather. I learned, as it were indeed, from days. I learned from nights, as it were. And I learned, as it were, from tender and insignificant life that seems to abound in the face of destruction and war. Who was the teacher unto my being was the Source.

“In not having the privilege, as it were indeed, of education and that which is called the sciences, not having the privilege to express as a human being, it was nigh out of hate, unexplainable hurt, and despair, and sorrow that I had no-thing else to challenge, except perhaps the reasoning that brought me here. I did not know at that time that I was the reasoning that brought myself here. You see? But out of that, and learning indeed how to comprehend an element that I found more forceful than man, an element I found much more intelligent than man — an element that I had found that could live in a peaceful coexistence beside and in spite of man — it must be the Unknown God. And it was the elements, dear entity, that taught me, you see. And I am very fortunate, for being taught by the elements and reasoning with them, I had none to say that I was wrong. And the elements never taught me failure, you see, because they are consistent. That is how I learned.

“I learned from something that is consistent, that is never failing, that is easily understood if man puts his mind to it. And because of that, as it were indeed, I was not at the hands of the hypocrisy of dogma or superstitious belief or multifaceted Gods, as it were indeed, that you are trying to please or the stigma, as it were indeed, that perhaps we were lower in perfection and could never obtain it. I was never at the hands of that kind of teaching. That is why it was easier for me to do in my one existence what it has taken many a millennia to do, because they have looked for God in another man’s understanding. They have looked for God in governmental rules, in church rules, in history, that they never even question who wrote it and why they wrote it. They have based their beliefs, their understanding, their life, their thought processes on something that life, after life, after life has proven itself a failure. And yet man, as it were indeed — stumbling in his own altered ego, afraid to admit to himself that perhaps he has erred — continues, as it were indeed, the steadfast hypocrisy that only leads to death.

“I was most fortunate, entity. The sun, it never cursed me. The moon never said I must be this way. The wind teased me and tantalized me. And the frost and the dew and the smell of grass and insects to and fro and the cry of a nighthawk, you know, they are unfailing things. Their science is simple. And the wonderful thing about them I learned, entity, did you know in their steadfastness they utter not one word? The sun did not look down at me and say, "Ramtha, you must worship me in order to know me." And the sun did not look down at me and say, "Ramtha, wake up; it is time to look upon my beauty." It was there when I saw it, you see.

“That is the beginning. That will never fail you. That will teach you cleaner, clearer truth than anything ever written by man.”

Ascension
 

“And there came a day, as it were indeed, when it was time that this old man, master, his days were finished, that all that I had set out to accomplish, indeed who I was, was accomplished. I made, as it were indeed, my journey across the river termed Indus. And there, as it were indeed, on the side of the mountain called Indus, master, I communed with all my peoples and bade unto them that this truth was a truth; that their divine guidance, as it were indeed, was not through me, as it were, but the Source that had made me, as it had made them. Behold, for their belief, as it were indeed, and to their surprise, master, I elevated myself quite nicely above them. And the women began to scream and become aghast, and the men, as it were indeed, who were soldiers, dropped their broadswords, as it were indeed, in wonderment. I saluted them farewell and learn as I have learned to become as I have become in their way.

“When wanting to be whatever it is you desire to be, align your thoughts with it. In the wind is a power that can intimidate a solitary soldier and take the earth and whisk it into the heavens in a single blow. And yet it cannot be harnessed or enslaved and it cannot be, as it were indeed, servant to anything save itself. I contemplated the free movement of the wind and became it. That is how.

“The difficulty that all have with this ideal is that they are still caught up in death and old age. And they are caught up in trying to find a machine that will get them there. And they are caught up in complexities rather than the simplicity of the line that the Father is. It is done simply, never arduously. So be it. After I ascended, entity, that was when I knew everything I wanted to know, because I got out of the density of flesh and came back into the fluidness of thought. And in that, entity, I was not inhibited by anything. Then I knew the structural makeup of that which is termed man — God. But at that time I did not know. I only knew that I was at peace with what I had done and I was at peace with life. Then I let it flow through me.

“I was no longer an ignorant barbarian. I was no longer anxious for war, smelling the battle. I was no longer, as it were indeed, anxious and overwrought and overworked. No longer was I, as it were indeed, having thoughts that men have. I was way beyond that. I was into life and into the wonderfulness that I saw in the heavens day after day and night after night. That was my life. That is when the peace came and that is when I became at one with the Unknown God. I no longer fought him. Now for everyone to be that patient in this lifetime is an arduous task to ask, for they live very fast now and they die very young. They don’t know how to live because they live by time. They must do it in a certain perimeter of time or they shall never accomplish it. As long as they feel that way, they shall never accomplish it. They will have only lived by time and that shall be the accomplishment in this life. Do you understand?

“When you know who you are — and in my life it took sixty-three years to learn that — you will look at yourself and see readily who has created all the destinies that you have lived by self-choice. And all of the unhappiness is by self-choice; and all of the happiness is by self-choice. But it was you and no one else. When you can humble yourself to look at you — look at you, feel you, and ask yourself why, and then say, "I know why," and become reasonable with self — you have taken the bars away from truth, which is the bird that soars in the heaven called happiness, virtue, oneness, and peace. I slumbered in the latter part of my sixty-three years of enlightenment. I slumbered because I was a peaceful man. I had come to terms with all things. I had made peace with all things and learned to love and respect and admire my greatest adversaries, for I was their threat. I learned to love them because I learned to love indeed that which is termed the elegance called Ramtha, indeed.” *
