„Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you”

                                                                                                                      Ephesians 5:14

 

 

We are all happy when we see the sun coming, we wonder and enjoy when we can see the power of its presence, and we are glad when we can feel its warmth and beauty. The sun is also in ourselves behind the few curtains and veils. Let us open them.

In winter and especially at Christmas, the light and consciousness of the Christ, the spiritual sun penetrates our earth, and it is our duty to embrace His love and wisdom and also learn to share like him.

The rose knows about the mystery of transformation and giving. It takes all substances from the environment and gives us, in difference to other plants  its particular beauty and wonderful essence. Man has the possibility to transform himself and like a rose take from God and the cosmos, from his light and his music all the spiritual substances in order to incarnate light.

From the stream of life man and woman can learn like the rose, through consciousness and discipline to open the doors of his or her spiritual centers. Constancy and well doing as an outcome of a necessary strong will should be the fruits of comprehension and the expression of the deepest and highest part of us, then the works that we do will be done with great love, joy and thankfulness.

With courage and trust in your inner divinity you can tread the path of evolution, which will lead you to learn to use all energies well by study, observation, experiment and watchfulness. Total sincerity is required from you, at least with yourself and with God. Search for your true face and unite and transform the other parts of you in a one creative work of art.

Yes, the sun is in us, look for it and find it, then you will have a natural distance to all phenomena of life and at the same time the understanding that we all are united and form part of one great living family. You will see that your thoughts, emotions, words and deeds affect yourself and others, so you will naturally try to refine them.

By every deed of true love you expand your consciousness to the reality of the oneness of life and approach the freedom of Christ and God consciousness.

 

 

May the roses bloom upon your cross

Excerpts from “The web of destiny ”, page 72-73 , by Max Heindel:

 

The comparatively weak and invisible currents generated by the group spirits of the plants, and the very strong powerful rays of force generated by the Christ Spirit now becoming visible as the Aurora Borealis, have hitherto been of about the same nature as static electricity, while the currents generated by the animal group spirits and which encircle the earth may be likened to dynamic electricity which gave the earth its power of motion in by-gone ages. Now, however, the Christ currents are becoming more and more forceful and their static electricity is being liberated.

The etheric impulse which they give will inaugurate a new era, and the sense organs now possessed by mankind must accommodate themselves to this change. Instead of the etheric rays which emanate from an object bringing a reflected image to the retina of our eye, the so-called "blind spot" will be sensitized and we shall look out through the eye and see directly the thing itself instead of the image upon our retina. Then we shall not only see the surface of the thing we observe, but we shall be able to see through and through it as those who have cultivated the etheric vision do now.

As time goes on and the Christ by His beneficent ministrations attracts more and more of the interplanetary ether to the earth, thus making its vital body more luminous, we shall be walking in a sea of light, and when we learn to forsake our ways of selfishness and egotism through the constant contact with these beneficent Christ vibrations, we also shall become luminous. Then the eye as it is now constituted would not be of service to us, therefore it is now beginning to change and we are experiencing the discomfort incident to all reconstruction. It may be said further with reference to the Aurora and its effects upon us, that these rays are radiated through every part of the earth, which is the body of Christ, from the center to the periphery, but in the inhabited parts of the world these rays are absorbed by humanity as the rays of the plant group spirits are absorbed by the flower.

These rays constitute the "inner urge" which is slowly but surely impelling mankind to adopt an attitude of altruism. They are the impregnating rays which fructify the soul, so that eventually the immaculate conception will take place and the Christ will be born within each of us. When we have all thus become perfectly impregnated, the Christ light will begin to radiate from us. Then we shall walk in the Light as He is in the Light, and we shall all have Fellowship, one with another.

The Lords Prayer is an unsurpassable work despite its brevity. With this prayer you can work for your whole life and even afterwards in your future life you can never exhaust its contents. Because it is like a seed which everybody can deeply bury in his inner earth. So I have made it. Then I have taken this seed and sowed it into the earth of my nature, I have looked after it carefully, I have watered it, warmed, shed light on it, and it has become a tree now, whose roots are deeply established in my soul and whose crown rises up to heaven. Therefore I tell this to you, one can deepen this prayer up to the infinite: It covers all areas of life and touches all our mental and spiritual processes, it gives our life meaning. But as in the case of the seed one must put it in the earth first and awaken it to life inside oneself. Then, little by little, one will discover in it all wealth.

Excerpts from: “The way of perfection” by Teresa of Avila :

 

Those who are able to shut themselves up in this way within this little Heaven of the soul, wherein dwells the Maker of Heaven and earth, and who have formed the habit of looking at nothing and staying in no place which will distract these outward senses, may be sure that they are walking  on an exellent road, and will come without fail to drink of the water of the fountain, for they will journey a long way in a short time.

We must cast aside everything else, in order to approach God inwardly and we must retire within ourselves even during our ordinary occupations. If I can recall the companionship which I have within my soul for as much as a moment, that is of great utility.

If we can, let us practice recollection many times daily; if not, let us do so occasionally. As we grow accustomed to it, we will feel its benefits, either sooner or later. Once the Lord has granted it to us, we should not exchange it for any treasure.

Nothing, sisters, can be learned without a little trouble, so do, for the love of God, look upon any care which you take about this as well spent. I know that, with God`s help, if you practice it for a year, or perhaps for only six months, you will be successful in attaining it. Think what a short time that is for acquiring so great a benefit, for you will be laying in good foundation, so that, if the Lord desires to raise you up to achieve great things, He will find you ready, because you will be close to Himself. May his Majesty never allow us to withdraw ourselves from His presence. Amen

 

Thoughts

 

Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sidereal. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven, as it were and from it the work that he desires to create flows into him.  

Paracelsus

 

And since you know you cannot see yourself, so well as by reflection, I, your glass, will modestly discover to yourself, that of yourself which you yet know not of.

 

Shakespeare

 

The seven deadly sins are envy, sloth, lust, anger, gluttony, pride and avarice. Until the aspirant has made some progress toward eradicating these seven deadly sins, he can not advance very far upon the path of attainment.

Aquarian art

 

He who ignores discipline despises himself,

but whoever heeds correction gains understanding.

 

Commit to the Lord whatever you do,

and your plans will succeed.

 

All hard work brings a profit,

but mere talk leads only to poverty.

 

How much better to get wisdom than Gold,

to choose understanding rather than silver.

 

Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,

and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.

 

A wise man’s  heart guides his mouth,

and his lips promote instruction.

 

Pleasant words are a honeycomb,

sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

 

Proverbs.

 

The stars

they tell us your story

they move in joy and look to us

be present

the dreams are over

just hear the inner music

which opens the heart

it breaths in silence

and gives the water of endlessness

to the thirsty soul

which dies without it.
