The ascended Masters were once human beings who preceded us.
They have lived on earth and, after a number of incarnations, which were on a spiritually highly developed level and from which they eventually were able to ascend. They are now light beings which are capable to radiate their consciousness to us and to free themselves of the material world. They are capable to change themselves and the world by inspiring us and performing miracles.
The Masters no longer have to incarnate on earth to acquire further development. They have achieved a development in which there are no limitations and where there is no form and time, no sound and no colors. This level is the dimension of total consciousness and is called the Shamballa of the ascended level.
These "Masters" are not our Masters, but Masters of the path. They are united in their light and their energy and exist in the collective consciousness. The Masters have cast off their character and personality; they are now consciousness and white light, surrounded by the emanation of facets of a brilliant. These facets of the brilliant each represent a small part of a life once lived. Through these windows, the Masters receive experience and knowledge and they send their collective consciousness to earth, so that it can be received through trance and/or channel mediums and people can be informed on their path of development.
