One Sunday evening at La Tourelle in Colorado
Springs, Mark recounted the time he suddenly disappeared from
view during a conference he conducted at the Dodge House in Washington,
D.C. Mark had a painting done of Saint Germain and didn’t
want anything to happen to it. He needed to bring the painting
up from his car, so he took the elevator down with George Lancaster
(now ascended) to the lobby. He asked George to hold the elevator
for him and not let anyone use it until he got back. So George
did as he asked and waited while Mark went out to the parking
Mark said he walked out to his car, picked up the painting, and
then disappeared, becoming invisible.
A half an hour later, someone called Mark’s
room and asked him if he still wanted George to continue holding
the elevator for him. Mark was surprised by the call and said
later that he himself didn’t understand what had happened.
George had never seen him come back into the lobby.
Mark then told those gathered that evening an
amazing thing, that he had been invisible before, and that we
were all capable of doing this ourselves. He explained that matter
is not solid, but comprised of atoms, cells, and electrons, and
therefore penetrable if we have the faith. He gave the example
of Jesus becoming invisible to escape the masses who wanted to
push him over a cliff as recorded in scripture.
And all they in the synagogue, when they
heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up, and thrust
him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon
their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.
But he passing through the midst of them went his way. (Luke:
Mark also reminded us to call for our cloak
of “ invisibility, invincibility, and invulnerability"
as a shield, especially when doing important work for the masters.
