In August 1930, the Ascended Master Saint Germain contacted Guy W. Ballard on Mt. Shasta and explained, to him, certain aspects of Cosmic Law and the history of mankind. This beautiful experience is recorded in the book “Unveiled Mysteries” and it heralded in the New Age. Under the new dispensation, given to Saint Germain, the Ascended Masters, for the first time, could give out information on the I AM Presence and the Violet Transmuting Flame.
After the experiences on Mt. Shasta, Guy W. Ballard received more messages which were incorporated into books. Many were healed while attending his lectures. Unfortunately, after the ascension of Mr. Ballard in 1939, these books, for about 40 years, were no longer made available to the general public.
The Law of Conservation of Energy applies also to the Ascended Masters. The tons of energy released by the Great Ones need to be returned by mankind. How can this energy be returned if new students do not have access to the original dictations?
It was primarily for this reason, that the Masters had to look elsewhere to carry forward their message. In 1952 the Great White Brotherhood received a new dispensation. They utilized Geraldine Innocente, the unascended twin-flame of the Ascended Master El Morya, as an authorized messenger. Forced to start totally anew, the Masters repeated, in substance, all of the data given previously in the 1930’s. However, many subjects and many valuable details were added. These new dictations were published under the name “The Bridge to Freedom.”
Unfortunately, after the ascension of Geraldine Innocente in 1961, the earlier mistakes were repeated. Again, the messages of the Masters did not find the widest possible distribution. After 1961, only 10% of the original material was published. During the summer conference of the "Bridge to Freedom" in 1979, it was announced that the "Bridge to Freedom" had accomplished its goal, and that its name was changed.
Two group leaders of the "Bridge to Freedom," who attended this conference, did not feel that this decision was done in accordance with the wishes of the Ascended Host. The Masters had stated that the task of the "Bridge" would only be complete, after every member of the human race had passed over this spiritual bridge, connecting the human realm to the divine realm, and gained his ascension. This experience, and the unwillingness of the leaders of the "Bridge to Freedom" to publish most of the original dictations, led to the establishment of the AMTF, as a non-profit corporation, in 1980.
Over a period of 10 years, all of the original material was recovered and it is now freely available, in its entirety and original purity, without additional channelings.
The AMTF was founded for one purpose, alone—namely, to save the original dictations of the Ascended Host from oblivion, to again make them available to all mankind and to complete the plan of the Masters for the “Bridge to Freedom.”
If a student seriously investigates this teaching, he will find that the material of the original “Bridge to Freedom” stands on its own and needs no updating by one of today’s channels. If practiced, it will enable the student to make the ascension in this embodiment. These instructions are timeless; they apply to mankind's situation of yesterday, today and tomorrow. The Masters called this material, "the New Age Bible, written for generations yet to come."
