'''Paul the Venetian ''' is [[chohan]] of the [[third ray]] of divine love. He is hierarch of the [[Château de Liberté]], his retreat on the etheric plane over southern France on the Rhône River.
Paul sponsors the ascended master culture for this age and works with all who desire to bring that culture forth on behalf of mankind. The culture of the ascended masters is the keystone in the pyramid of the [[golden age]]; for they have said that it is through culture that mankind will respond to spiritual truths and the teachings of the [[Great White Brotherhood]].

=== Head of cultural affairs on Atlantis ===
In the days of [[Atlantis]], Paul served in the government as the head of cultural affairs. Before the continent sank, he established a focus of the liberty flame in Peru, which gave impetus to the culture, beauty and wealth of the Incan civilization.
=== Artist in the Incan civilization ===
=== Master of architecture in Egypt ===
Later, he was embodied in Egypt as a master of esoteric architecture and worked closely with [[El Morya]], then a master mason, at the time of the building of the pyramids.

On one occasion he was summoned before the tribunal of the Inquisition under suspicion of heresy for the “irreverences” in his painting of the Last Supper, which included in it a dwarf, a parrot, guards in German armour, dogs and a jester. Veronese staunchly defended the artist’s right to freedom of imagination. The tribunal found a solution by suggesting that the painting be renamed ''Feast in the House of Levi''.
In 1588, he contracted a fever and, after a few days of illness, died on April 9. His brother and sons had him buried in S. Sebastiano, where a bust was placed above his grave. He made his ascension from the [[Château de Liberté ]] on April 19, 1588.
Here at the Château, prior to his ascension, he had begun the most majestic of his works, known as “The Holy Trinity.” The heavenly Father is portrayed by a majestic figure, the likeness of Jesus depicts the Son, and an impressive white dove with a nine-foot wingspan denotes the Holy Spirit. The canvas has the unprecedented distinction of conveying the vibrations of both dimensions of activity—the earthly and the heavenly—in which Paolo was so interested, for the canvas was completed after his ascension. Beneath the painting of “The Holy Trinity,” Paul has inscribed in gold letters: “Perfect Love Casteth out Fear.”
== Transfer of the Liberty Flame from his retreat ==
It was the Goddess of Liberty who inspired the idea of the Statue of Liberty as a gift of the people of France to the people of the United States, which was dedicated on Bedloe’s Island October 28, 1886. A symbol of their friendship and more, it was the spanning of the arc of liberty from the Château de Liberté back to the Temple of the Sun with the intent that the descendants of Atlantis reembodied at both her East and West gates (at France and the United States) would hold high her torch until Liberty’s culture should once again appear in a golden age founded upon the balanced and expanded [[threefold flame ]] in the hearts of the freedom-loving people of these sister nations.

Seventy-six years later, in a dictation given in Washington, D.C., September 30, 1962, the ascended master [[K-17]] announced the bestowal of another gift from France to America, this time from Paul the Venetian:
<blockquote>There has been held a beautiful and wonderful session at [[Palace of Light|Chananda’s retreat ]] in India, and a decision was made on the part of beloved Paul the Venetian whereby there was transferred from his retreat in France this day, at the hour of eleven o’clock your time, the full pulsation of the great liberty flame.</blockquote>
<blockquote>This flame was permanently placed within the forcefield of the Washington Monument; and the pulsations of the liberty flame are intended to grace the heart of America as a gift from the Brotherhood and from the heart of beloved Paul the Venetian....</blockquote>
<blockquote>I remember when Norman Rockwell came to me at inner levels to study in my etheric retreat. And I remember as I counseled him to show the Christ in the American people, in everyday scenes of humor, humility, wonder, togetherness, heroism. And all these have been treasured, remembered and valued highly because something of the spirit of the Christ image that is become an image of America came through his work.</blockquote>
<blockquote>A unique artist, one devoted to the inherent qualities and identity of the individual. As his perception of the Christ was, so was his painting the capturing of unique moments. You might examine that work to find in each painting what is the glimmer, however great or faint, of some aspect of the individual reaching for the Higher Self.<ref>Paul the Venetian, “The Art of Love,” {{POWref|27|3|, January 15, 1984.}}</ref></blockquote>
The beloved master Paul has promised an important initiation to those who come knocking at the door of his retreat in southern France, ready for a greater increment of the love flame:
<blockquote>Is it any wonder that we deplore the chaotic and abstract art that has no point of unity? It also portrays a certain barrenness and absence of that point of light in the individual. One can see anarchy by an absence of dimension—an absence of harmony or focalization in modern art.</blockquote>
<blockquote>Modern art enters the subconscious. Accordingly, whether or not the artist is influenced by [[marijuana ]] or other substances, art portrayed in fabric design, wall coverings, clothing style becomes a matrix capable or incapable of carrying some measure of Christly proportion. When the peoples’ art and sense of art flounders, then the images of Christ recede.</blockquote>
<blockquote>It is rare to find a work of art that is come from the etheric octave in this period.... Where will your leaders learn to deal with the invaders of the minds of the nations? They will learn from the etheric schoolrooms and cities and retreats. How will they get there if they do not contain the crystal that becomes the magnet and a star to follow when the soul goes forth from the body in the hours of sleep?</blockquote>
