The Magi were the priest class of Persia who were the “keepers of the sacred things, the learned of the people, the philosophers and servants of God,” who also practiced the art of divination, soothsaying and astrology. During the Persian empire, they were advisers of kings, educators of princes, and were held in highest reverence.
The Order of the Magi is a very holy inner order of the Great White Brotherhood. The three kings who came to the birth of Jesus were members of that order. Members of the order are committed to the service of the Christ, the worship of the Christ, the unfoldment of the Christ mind, the wisdom of the Christ. They are pledged to the retreat of Serapis Bey and committed to the ascension through service.
The Covenant of the Magi is the vow that all must take if they would become a member of the Holy Order of the Magi. There may be thousands on the inner. There may be unascended and ascended masters who take part in it. We have not been given a great deal of instruction on it, but we know that this vow is a key point in the ascension of every person upon the planet.
As we live this vow, we may be accepted into that holy order. We know not when. This initiation may occur at night while we are sleeping. But at some point in our evolution, if we are determined that we shall be perfected enough and make ourselves acceptable enough in his sight, we might be a part of this great order of beings who were so privileged to attend the birth of the Christ and who continue to attend his birth in each heart.
The Covenant of the Magi
by El Morya
Father, into thy hands I commend my being. Take me and use me—my efforts, my thoughts, my resources, all that I AM—in thy service to the world of men and to thy noble cosmic purposes, yet unknown to my mind.
Teach me to be kind in the way of the Law that awakens men and guides them to the shores of Reality, to the confluence of the River of Life, to the Edenic source, that I may understand that the leaves of the Tree of Life, given to me each day, are for the healing of the nations; that as I garner them into the treasury of being and offer the fruit of my loving adoration to Thee and to thy purposes supreme, I shall indeed hold covenant with Thee as my guide, my guardian, my friend.
For Thou art the directing connector who shall establish my lifestream with those heavenly contacts, limited only by the flow of the hours, who will assist me to perform in the world of men the most meaningful aspect of my individual life plan as conceived by Thee and executed in thy name by the Karmic Board of spiritual overseers who, under thy holy direction, do administer thy laws.
So be it, O eternal Father, and may the covenant of thy beloved Son, the living Christ, the Only Begotten of the Light, teach me to be aware that he liveth today within the tri-unity of my being as the Great Mediator between my individualized Divine Presence and my human self; that he raiseth me into Christ consciousness and thy divine realization in order that as the eternal Son becomes one with the Father, so I may ultimately become one with Thee in that dynamic moment when out of union is born my perfect freedom to move, to think, to create, to design, to fulfill, to inhabit, to inherit, to dwell and to be wholly within the fullness of thy Light.
Father, into thy hands I commend my being.
