Mark Prophet had a life of many challenges. He left high school during the Great Depression to support his widowed mother. He laid track on the Soo Line Railroad, served in the Air Force in World War II, was the head of an electrical workers’ union in the Midwest. Finally, he achieved the American dream—the house, the job, the new car—only to see it all taken in a great spiritual test. But through all of this, it was his quest for God that was the driving force for his life.
As a boy, he would pray for hours at an altar he built in the attic of his house. He received all nine gifts of the Holy Spirit while yet a teenager. And then he found that his search for Reality could not be contained within that path. He studied the Western arcana. He pursued the Eastern paths of yoga and meditation. And above all, he was guided by his Guru, the Ascended Master El Morya.
Mark Prophet was never afraid to let the Holy Spirit express through him. He used no notes—each discourse was a fresh revelation from the heart of God. They were delivered with grace and disarming spontaneity —and often a dose of humor. (Who can forget “The Chevy Is My Auto”?) He often quoted the words of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, “Was it I who spoke? Was I not also a listener?”
Mark’s messages, the product of a profound love for God and man, provide us with glimpses of the Infinite—the Wisdom of the Ages—made practical for our daily life.
