“Beyond a shadow of a doubt”

Dr. George King

During a TV interview in England in the 1970s, Dr. George King made the following statement about the teachings he had received from the Cosmic Masters:

From the philosophical content alone, they are pretty fantastic – so they did come from somewhere. Either they came from my mind or they came from another source. If they came from another source, they’re excellent. If they came from my puny little mind, then I’m quite a person.

This is a formula for recognising the truth. The calibre of our teachings is proof enough of their authenticity; so is the enormity of the life-saving missions we have performed for decades. But it also displays a degree of humility which, if anyone else had said it, would be preposterous. Dr. King’s mind was the exact opposite to puny – indeed it was one of the greatest minds ever to grace our planet. He knew God as the eternal simple from direct experience and could therefore understand the complexities of mankind’s involution – and more importantly provide the solution.

I believe Dr. George King’s lectures on The Twelve Blessings and The Nine Freedoms for example are, as teachings, on a par with some of the cosmic transmissions he received. It was he who personally devised some of the missions The Aetherius Society performs today, including Operation Sunbeam and Operation Prayer Power.

Another formula for recognising the truth

So I would like to offer anyone investigating our Society another formula for recognising the truth, one which Dr. George King himself was far too modest to suggest – because the formula is him. Look at his teaching; look at his mediumship; look at his work; and look at his life.

There are many who claim to channel extraterrestrial beings, but not one of them has practised yoga for eight hours a day for ten years while doing a job, and then spent the remaining 43 years of their life for 24 hours a day on call for the Cosmic Masters.

Not one of them, that is, except Dr. George King.

And that is only one aspect of his work.

“Beyond a shadow of a doubt”

It will come as no surprise that I consider that the Society’s teachings are second to none, and that our missions are simply unprecedented. But I am going to stick my neck out and say that our greatest asset of all is the master who brought us these teachings and missions. As someone who knew him very well, I can vouch that Dr. George King was everything he claimed to be and more. And that is, to quote one of his favourite sayings, “beyond a shadow of a doubt”.

    It’s true that Dr George King was a very unique individual with his cosmic contacts. We do know also, through the Master Aetherius, that there were two other Intelligences with whom he was in contact with, although Their identities were not made public in the same way as Dr King. You can bet that These were very hard working individuals who spent considerable time practicing Yoga and Meditation and possibly had outside jobs as well?

      Thank you for your comment! There can be no doubt that the two intelligences you refer to would have been very hard working individuals who spent considerable time practicing yoga and meditation, as you say. However, we know very little else about them, and do not know whether or not they had outside jobs.

        I’ve come to suspect that one of these was Saint Goo-ling.

          Hiya Paul,

          If this is referring to the Transmission by The Master Aetherius in which he mentions an individual in Mt Shasta and an individual in the Himalayas, then I think what you have concluded could well be right. Thank you for your deep interest in the teachings. Blessings, Darren
