The Teaching of the Community must be active in opening all paths. -M

MOSCOW, July 1 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said Monday that fugitive former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden could stay in Russia, if he wanted to, but must stop leaking secrets and doing other activities to harm the United States.

“If he wants to go somewhere [another country] and is accepted, he can. If he wants to stay here, there is one condition: He must stop his work aimed at harming our US partners, no matter how strange this may sound coming from me,” Putin said.

He denied that Snowden had ever had any ties or had ever collaborated with Russian intelligence services. He described Snowden as a person who “does not feel like a former intelligence service employee” but rather “a fighter for human rights, for democracy.”

“He considers himself to be a human rights campaigner, a new type of dissident, to a certain extent, something like Sakharov, but, maybe, of a different scope,” Putin said, referring to Soviet-era scientist and human rights activist Andrei Sakharov.

The Russian leader said his country had no plans to extradite Snowden to the United States, adding that “no one has ever extradited anyone to us.”

“At best, we exchange employees of our Foreign Intelligence Service for those who had been detained, arrested and convicted in Russia,” Putin said.

In the meantime, US President Barack Obama said Monday on an official visit to Tanzania that the US had held “high-level discussions with the Russians about trying to find a solution to the problem” of Snowden’s extradition. A White House spokeswoman confirmed the information, saying that law enforcement agencies in Russia and the US were discussing the matter via their own channels.

Russian Security Council head Nikolai Patrushev said earlier Monday that the presidents of Russia and the US had instructed heads of national security services FSB and FBI to “keep a constant contact and search for possible solution.” Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov confirmed later in the day that the two services are discussing the matter, but said that Obama and Putin had never addressed the matter in person. http://en.rian.ru/russia/20130701/181993124/Snowden-Can-Stay-but-Must-Stop-Harming-US–Putin.html

7-1-13  “Since he considers himself a human rights activist, it seems he doesn’t want to stop his work. Therefore he should choose a country he wants to go to and move there, but I don’t know when this is going to happen,” Putin said at a news conference following a meeting of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum in Moscow….

Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, whose country had seemed willing to consider Snowden’s request for asylum and to offer him support, downplayed Ecuador’s role in the case and seemed to offer Russia full responsibility for the issue.

“This is the decision of Russian authorities,” Rafael Correa told the Associated Press on Sunday.  “He doesn’t have a passport. I don’t know the Russian laws, I don’t know if he can leave the airport, but I understand he can’t.  At this moment, he’s under the care of the Russian authorities.  If he arrives at an Ecuadorian Embassy, we’ll analyze his request for asylum.”

  How easily emotions become a tempest in a teapot, and suddenly the sea begins to roar.  This illustrates that the individual yet identifies with the mass human emotions and with emotions that come upon the rock of his being, as it were beating upon the rock of the lighthouse that is your Mighty I AM Presence.  I say, be not moved by these conditions.  The measure of your God-mastery must be your ability to hold the flame when all assails you.   -Serapis Bey:  8-11-1979 via Messenger ECP

  I bid you therefore, submit to my servant-son the Ascended Master El Morya who is the Lamb worthy to open the seven-sealed book unto his chelas in Darjeeling.  For every chela of the will of God is a preacher of the gospel of his own I AM Presence.   -Sanat Kumara:  Pearls of Wisdom, 8-26-1979

  Thus Jesus by his very presence at table with Simon (the Pharisee) was the instrument for the exposure of Simon’s hardness of heart toward the sinner, whose sins Jesus forgave, saying “Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace,” while those others that sat with him at meat also challenged his authority to forgive sin.     -Sanat Kumara:  Pearls of Wisdom, 9-2-1979

I, viii, 6.  Occultly the circle appears as an impersonation of the human organism broadened by possibilities.  The central figures carry the honorary functions of the heart.  The growth of the organism and its injuries are reflected upon the heart.

II, viii, 10.  Each circle is like a caravan.  Of course a whole caravan carries more than a single horse, yet on the other hand a single horse can delay the whole movement.  Shyness or misstep can upset the march.  Therefore the concepts of achievement and clair-achievement differ very distinctly.  It is possible to check the flash of achievement but not the fire of clair-achievement.

III, iii, 14.  The chain of the circle may facilitate, but resourcefulness is tested when one is left to oneself. 

III, iv, 13.  Out of hatred, out of ignorance, out of fear men implant poisoned arrows the force of which is great.  One of the best means of defense is the concept of an occult circle.  But the best remedy must be taken according to exact indications….Because of its significance the circle must be guarded like any tuned instrument.  One should not forget that every action between members of the circle must be circumspect.  Everything useful can be turned into an injury if there be tolerated the throwing of stones into the brother’s orchard.      –Leaves of Morya’s Garden 1925

139.  Expelling negation, the Teaching enslaves no one.  The denier is already a slaveholder for he does not wish to let his interlocutor go free from his (the denier’s) circle.  The Teaching of the Community must be active in opening all paths.   -Morya:  Community 1926
