I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live for ever.
John: 6, 51
We have in ourselves the essentialities of perfect joy, beauty and love.The Spirit within us, the Christ in us is looking through our eyes into the universe, is hearing through our ears all sounds and it is feeling, thinking, expressing through us, but it is our duty and work to practice and realize this knowledge every moment of our lives through our positive attitude and consciousness.
It is like being a King or a Queen, but not beeing conscious of it, but when the Queen has been awaked with the kiss of the beloved, she, the soul, will come to life and live in her palace.
To make this knowledge a living experience it requires a total transformation and regeneration of ourselves, of every part of us and also the transformation of our unconscious mind. All these parts of us owing to our own ignorance and mistakes and owing to our heredity, education and the conditions of our contemporary life have brought to us a lot of negativity. It is also necessary that all our faculties and energies will come gradually under our dominion, so that we may be able to be masters of ourselves constantly and with this realization let the sun shine by itself for ever, letting Him manifest through us in all we do, say and think. This is a condition of joy and thankfullness in which we may become with his grace true servants of Christ.
In spite of all obstacles we have to advance and rise by courage, perseverance and activity until the time comes that everything in us will express only love, peace and wisdom. No obscurity of any kind will exist, because all in our consciousness will be melted in light.
Excerpts from The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception p. 171, 181, 216-217, 397-398, and Rosicrucian Philosophy in Questions and Answers Vol. 2, p. 96-97 and Occult principles of health and healing p. 160, 200-201 by Max Heindel:
Christ differentiates between the physically blind body of the man and the God within, which is the Higher Self. Paul says, „ know ye not that ye are Gods?“ and he refers to the human body as the „temple of God,“ the indwelling spirit.
The Sun is the nearest approach we have to a visible symbol of God, yet it is but a veil for That which is behind. What That is cannot be uttered publicly.
Thus the virgin spirit is encased in a threefold veil, (Divine Spirit, Life Spirit and Human Spirit) and as its outermost veil, the human spirit, effectively blinds it to the oneness of Life, it becomes the Ego by entertaining the illusion of separateness contracted during involution. Evolution will gradually dissolve the illusion, bring back the All-consciousness, and Self-consciousness will have been added.
There are in the head three points, each of which is the particular seat of one of the three aspects of the spirit, the second and third aspects having, in addition, secondary vantage grounds.
The seat of the human spirit is primarily in the pineal gland and secondarily in the brain and cerebro-spinal nervous system, which control the voluntary muscles.
The life spirit has ist seat primarily in the pituitary body and secondarily in the heart, which is the gateway of the blood that nourishes the muscles.
The actionless Divine Spirit -The Silent Watcher- finds ist material expression in the passive, inert and irresponsive skeleton of the dense body, which is the obedient instrument of the other bodies, but has no power to act on ist own initiative. The divine Spirit has its stronghold in the impenetrable point at the root of the nose.
In realitiy there is but one Spirit, the Ego, but looking at it from the physical World, it is refracted into the three aspects, which work as stated.
All the „affirmations“ of Divinity are in vain unless accompanied by actions of a divine character. Deeds will prove our divinity as words never can.
It is of the utmost importance that we set the sails of the barque of our lives as we want and never scruple about interfering with fate. But, thank God, there is one chance which is not shown in the horoscope, namely, that the human will may assert itself and frustrate fate.
We set the force going which has now ripened into destiny, and having made it, we certainly have the right to change it in so far as we are able. In fact this is the hall mark of divinity, to rule ourselves.
God is light. Each time we sink ourselves in these three words we lave in a spiritual fountain of inexaustible depth, and each succeeding time we sound more thoroughly the divine depths and draw more closely to our Father in heaven.
A camel and an ox and a ram were ambling along a road, when they saw a fresh tuft of barley grass that they all wanted. They stopped, and the ram said, „ If we divide this, none of us will be satisfied. Let us do as the Master advised and give to the eldest, honoring his superior experience.
No one honors their elders these days without some ulterior motive. The young invite them to taste the food first only when they suspect it‘s too hot. They invite them to cross the bridge ahead of them only when they see dangerous cracks in the arches, and no one bows to a Teacher in these times without some scam in mind. So let us each declare his age and settle this matter.
As for me, I don’t know my exact years, but I was once pastured with that ram that Abraham sacrificed instead of Isaac.“
The ox, „ Well, I can beat that! I was yoked in the team that Adam plowed with when he left Eden.“
The camel listened silently to their amazing lies, reached his long neck down, plucked the luscious tuft, and as he held it over their heads and ate it, he said, „I don’t know much about this chronology, sweethearts, but I know I‘m taller than you two, and that has obvious spiritual significance.“
The highest wisdom has but one science – the science of the whole – the science explaining the whole creation and man’s places in it.
Love is like a magnet; it draws us into and makes us one with one we love.
- Van der Leeuw
One can acquire everything in solitude – except character.
I have known it in glimpses, and its fitful breath has come upon me,
making my thoughts fragrant for a while.
I will meet one day the joy without me that dwells behind the screen of light
And will stand in the overflowing solitude
Where all things are seen as by their creator.
Plays of Light
I’m happy to see you
You my sweet ray of sun
I’m happy to shine with you
Till the wide eternity
Your clear light shines
And sings in magic, it rejoices
The bells did resound
The oneness is here
Immersed in silence
I discover your face
Your sweet smile shines
Like a sun in my heart
I’m happy to see you
You sweet magical sun
You give love to all
And we are one in light
