It combines the flaming blue power of God’s will and the brilliant golden illumination of the intelligence of God. Her presence in the universe is the exaltation of the flame of living Truth. This truth she holds on behalf of the evolutions of earth as a member of the Karmic Board, where she serves as the representative on the fifth ray of truth, healing, supply and precipitation. The one who holds the office of the Goddess of Truth has always given great assistance to the messengers of the Great White Brotherhood. Her scepter of power is the flaming sword of Truth that cleaves asunder the Real from the unreal and keeps the way of the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. To learn more about Pallas Athena, go to:
