                                            Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
                                                  Let Light descend on Earth.

                                           From the point of Love within the Heart of God 
                                            Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
                                                  May Christ return to Earth.

                                          From the centre where the Will of God is known 
                                             Let purpose guide the little wills of men  
                                          The purpose which the Masters know and serve. 

                                           From the centre which we call the race of men 
                                              Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
                                            And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

                                       Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.


	      	
			 	
Toltec     "women & men of knowledge"
   Be Impeccable with Your Word
   Do not take anything personally
   Do Not Make Assumptions
   Always Do You Best

Phil Lane Jr.    - 
hereditary Chief  - Yankton Dakota & Chickasaw       
 "The spiritual understanding and awareness  that every human being is a scared, divine being
 with a higher spiritual purpose, is fundamental to understanding and manifesting the deepest meaning
 and infinite love of our soul.
Not only do we need to honor and respect our own sacred, divine self, but we must, also learn to see
 and experience  this same spiritual reality in every other human being."
