John Staugn, dear Brother, why did you project into incarnation in
a body of flesh, when the true Malkuth is already part of your
own consciousness?  Jesus, the Nazarene, a King of the Jews, once
said, "The Kingdom of my Father is spread across the Earth, but
men do not perceive it."  My dear Brother, I am a Bishop, and a
Gnostic Bishop, in the apostolic succession of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and I am now praying to the Father that he shall so bless your
consciousness continuum that you may yourself realize who you are,
and whence you came.

But now, John, since you have incarnated in a body of the flesh, let
us get on with the pragmatics.  There is indeed a monastary theosophical
in California, it is called "Halcyon", and it is quite famous.  You
could actually move there and become a monk.  I have not actually
been there myself, but I am quite sure that there be good folk about
who will kindly direct you to it.  I have heard good things about it,
even that some very interesting folk that I knew of yore are now there,
and that the whole project is directly guided by the Masters.  And
since I implicitly believe any good myth, unless contradicted by
any known facts, so do I believe this now as well.

Should you not be a U.S. citizen, this is only a minor problem.
Go to Acapolco, and get a ticket on the "underground express" that
will take you straight to a safe house in San Jose.  I believe they
offer limousine service.  Once in San Jose, ask for directions
to "Halcyon".

Go with God!
