The work the Traveler does with his students and initiates is, for the most part, on the inner levels. It’s true that there are also outer teachings in the form of seminars, tapes, books, and discourses. The outer forms are designed to focus and direct the mind and provide a structure to relate to. But the changes, the growth, the learning, and the understanding all take place within you. It is not an outer process as much as an inner one.
The Traveler has the ability to touch the inner consciousness, communicate with you directly through your inner spiritual essence, and affect change from the inside out. Change can never be imposed on you from the outside; change takes place inside ﬁrst and then manifests on the outer levels.
You may perceive the Inner Master in several ways. You may sense the presence of a magniﬁcence close within you and the protection of love, and you intuitively know you are in communication with that presence and receiving guidance. That’s one way to know the Inner Master. You may also see a ﬂash of purple or a ﬂickering of violet or white Light, which may signal the presence of the Inner Master. You might see the eyes of the Inner Master in the inner vision, and they will reﬂect to you such incredible loving and caring that you feel your “sins,” your fears and concerns dissolve in his love. Or you might see, again in the inner vision, the radiant form of the Inner Master, a magniﬁcent form of tremendous beauty and majesty.
In the Book of Revelations in the Bible there is a description of the Inner Master: “I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a ﬂame of ﬁre; and his feet like unto ﬁne brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword; and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, ‘Fear not; I am the ﬁrst and the last: I am he that liveth and was dead; and behold, I am alive forevermore, and have the keys of hell and of death.” (Revelations 1:12-18) That’s about as accurate a description as you’re going to get of the Inner Master.
It is also stated in the Bible, “Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.” (I John 4:4) The part of you that is spiritual is greater by far than anything of the physical world. You can take any avatar or saint or Godform as manifest in the physical world, and the part in you which is Spirit is greater than that. Jesus said, “For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.” (Luke 7:28) The inner part of your consciousness is valuable beyond all measure in this world. It will transcend verbal recognition, emotional qualiﬁcation, and mental imagery.
The Soul, the inner form, is so magniﬁcent that you intuitively know its majesty even if you don’t know it consciously. I sometimes think the intuitive knowledge of the Soul is part of the reason we resist and resent anyone having authority over us at any time, whether it’s our parents, teachers, spouses, or employers. That part which is the Soul and the magniﬁcence of Spirit will not be controlled or put down.
