And they saw the God of glory standing above them in the air, and there was under
his feet a pavement of blue. And he did beckon unto them that they might come closer,
for he desired to speak unto them. (B:8:7)
And there was about the Lord of Hosts the clearness of eternity and under his feet
a blue pavement like unto sapphire. And in his right hand he held a book and in his
left hand a balance, and there came from before the presence of the Lord a consuming
fire, that no unclean thing should come before him. (W:2:7)
Summary: The blue pavement is a creation of First God, Areta and The One, which
allows its user to travel vast distances by bending space and folding time. The blue
pavement serves as a key which can “pierce in one even all dimensions” (4:2:55).
Its appearance is a shimmering sapphire blue, often described as a “sea of glass”
(W:2:12,42), having within its depths the stirring of stars and galaxies and “worlds
without end” (W:26:5; Personal Testimony, p.xiii).
The function of the blue pavement is made possible by means of a pre-existing creation
of First God, called the Tael (4:2:36-43). As a manifestation of eternal mind, the
Tael serves as an all-encompassing communication device that connects all of creation
— from the smallest of fundamental particles to the Gods and Goddesses themselves.
There are many instances in scripture which portray representatives from Heaven incorporating
the use of the blue pavement for inter-cosmic travel (4:2:59; 4:3:1-2, 26-28), or
to commune with individuals on earth (B:17:28; W:26:5). The author of the scriptures
witnessed the blue pavement and experienced its operation on several occasions (Personal
Testimony; W:2:12; W:14:2; W:16:3; W:26:5; 1:1:17; 2:12:69).
[...] Of interest is the fact that the blue pavement can only function because the
Tael exists. The Tael provides the carrier wave which acts as a catalyst, making
travel on the blue pavement possible. Wherever the Tael is, the blue pavement can
go. The blue pavement (which is the result of a complex mathematical construct) uses
the inherent frequencies of the Tael as a constant. The Tael was created first, and
then the blue pavement, making both inter-related to each other. The pathways of
the blue pavement were established in the cosmos of theFirst Power long ago (4:2:52-57).
And whenever God comes to instruct me, they use these very ancient pathways within
the Tael to do so.
Creation of the blue pavement 4th Endowment 2:51-58
And there was round about her a great light, and under her feet was a pavement of
blue like unto sapphire, and there flowed from her hand the glory of eternity, which
thing did shine forth upon them, and they were filled with exceeding wonder.
Then was the man taken before the Lord and was made to stand with his feet upon the
pavement which was like unto a sea of glass.
And I will cause them to be seated upon thrones of glory; holiness shall be unto
them as a covering, and under their feet shall be placed a sea of glass, where all
things shall continually come before them: all things that are present, all things
that are past, and all things that shall shortly come to pass.
Now when the man awoke, he took a staff and went unto a solitary place and there
came unto him, Emmanuel, and with him were gathered a host of ministering angels.
And there was under his feet a clear blue pavement like unto sapphire.
Then the Lord commanded the angels to wash and anoint him, and when they had accomplished
this, they took him by the hand and stood him upon the blue pavement and placed a
white robe upon him.
And Emmanuel took the man by the hand and through the veil did take him, and, behold,
the earth did vanish away in an instant and in the bosom of eternity was he made
to stand and beside him the angels in heavenly array.
Then did Michael, Prince and Arch-Angel of God, smile upon the man and taking him
by the arm walked with him throughout the eternities upon a sea of glass...
And there was beneath her feet a pavement of blue, even as of sapphire, and in the
midst thereof moved a multitude of worlds without end. For such perfected soul as
the Mother is become dwells continually in the bosom of eternity.
These are the words which the Father spoke, and when he was completed, the Father
and the Mother did together reach forth their hands to set my feet upon a pavement
of blue; and in an instant the world upon which I stood, and even the very stars,
did vanish all away and in the kingdoms of the greater Light did I cast forth a delightful

And Areta, reaching forth her hand, stood me upon a pavement of deepest blue, and
she spoke unto me, saying: “Come then Azrael, and I will make known to you even all
2nd Endowment 12:69
1. And God rushed into the darkness midst trailing streams of light, to bend both
space and time, perchance to find some noble race of sentient beings which would
consent to dwell in Heaven, being themselves as good and wise and filled with sweet
2. Thus did God appear suddenly in the cosmos of the First Creation, reaching through
the veils of time to gaze upon one world and then another; watching with a knowing
heart the doings of every species....
17. Thus, beside the cherubs of Xandalea did there appear a bright and shimmering
veil of light; and instantly the veil parted and there was seen standing on a pavement
of glimmering and sparkling blue both The One and Areta together....
26. And seeing that the cherubs were imperiled, God did cause that even all should
be taken within the veil, causing that they should stand with God upon the blue pavement;
and in an instant were they taken away into the realms of Heaven, beyond the world
27. And there appeared before the eyes of the cherubs, a bright and bluing haze,
for space and time did fold together to be as one; and in an instant the veil did
part and they saw with suddenness the world of the First Heaven.
4th Endowment 3:1-2, 17, 26-27
“As the light continued to grow in brightness and intensity, it suddenly parted like
the veils of some celestial curtain, revealing to my eyes the very God of Heaven
who stood above me in the airs, and with him stood a host of angels, Cherubim and
Seraphim. And there was beneath the feet of God a pavement of blue upon which he
and the angels stood; and in this blue bright pavement I could clearly see a multitude
of stars and swirling, spinning galaxies moving in their splendor and majesty. And
there came out from the presence of God a great and shining light which blazed brighter
than any light which I had seen before.”
