„For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

 

                                                          John 3:16.

 

 

Divine love is the sun that every soul is seeking, and as we come near to the center of all things, we understand step by step that everything is held by love, and that the things that are worthy to be done, are the things done with love.

 Divine love like the sun has the colour of all planetary rays and it expresses itself through deeds and service in every plane of life. It forgets itself in giving and learns how to give and why to give and is in continual yearning for truth.

Love implies great consciousness, intelligence and attention and is happy in the happiness of others. Yes, love is a fragrance and through that door we may unveil all mysteries of life and learn to be always thankful. Divine love can transform and redeem all darkness.

The spiritual masters give themselves totally, we may say they are love, and we? We should try at least to develop divine friendship, helpfulness and unconditional love even to our so called “enemies” if we find it proper, and that can be done only after contacting daily the peace and joy within.

In this self- created environment of silence, the sun, that is our own spirit can reflect itself clearly in the lake, which is our beeing, because our bodies and minds are relaxed, concentrated  and in peace.

It was said that in the beginning there was the One and in the process of creation it divided itself into many and now is trying by evolution to become one again, but in a superior level of conscious oneness. Christ came in order to unite all souls in a great symphony of brotherhood and love.  Let’s try to expand and share His gentleness and affection with all the creation as all great masters do.

Only efforts of constructive wisdom and spiritual and intuitive understanding can unite and perfect the souls in the beauty of divine love. It is God as our only friend who is helping and inspiring us through all our friends. Divine love includes everything and everybody and like the sun is giving itself and shining continually for all the creation of God. 

A Rosicrucian international Meeting took place from August 2nd to August 5th 2001 in Fatima, Portugal The theme was: “The spiritual panacea for the XXI century”.  The residence Domus Pacis  has a beautiful, nice chapel and is located few steps away from the sanctuary of Fatima, both of them are surrounded with olive and eucalyptus trees. All these factors helped to deepen and harmonize the activities of about 70 participants from all over the world, who worked on various topics and found  positive agreements that are to be realized. All of us learned from the good qualities and talents of the Portuguese people, who also made us enjoy their music. There was time for devotional services, for learning from each other and for personal contacs. There was predominantly felt a fine energy of love and friendship, which spread its rays and touched the hearts of everyone. The next Rosicrucian International Meeting will take place in Spai.

 

 

Excerpts from The Rosicrucian Cosmo Conception. pag 380, The Rosicrucian Christianity Lectures. Pag 224-225. The web of destiny pag. 17-18. by Max Heindel:

 

Under the regime of Jehovah unity is impossible. Therefore the Christ, who possesses as a lowest vehicle the unifying life spirit, must enter into the dense human body. He must appear as a man among men and dwell in this body, because only from whithin is it possible to conquer the Race-Religion, which influences man from without.

…But law makes for sin; it is separative, and besides, man must learn to do right apart from fear. Therefore Christ, the Highest initiate of the Sun Period, came to teach the religion of the son, which works upon the vital body, which was started in the Sun Period. He taught that love is superior to law. Perfect love casteth out fear and emancipates humanitiy from race, caste or nation to universal brotherhood, which will become a fact when christianity is lived.

But as a child that is born into the world requires nourishment, so also the Christ that is born within is a babe and requires to be nourished to the full stature of manhood….so also, as the Christ grows will the two higher ethers grow in volume and form a luminous cloud around the man or woman sufficiently discerning to set his or her face heavenward; it will invest the pilgrim with light so brilliant that he “walks in the light,” as a matter of actual fact. By the exercises given in the Western Mystery School of the Rosicrucians, it becomes possible in the time to detach the two higher ethers, and the man may then step away from his physical body, leaving it for a time invested and vitalized only by the two lower ethers; he is then what we call an INVISIBLE HELPER.

When Christianity shall have fully spiritualized the vital body, a still higher step will be the Religion of the Father, who as the Highest Initiate of the Saturn Period will help man to spiritualize the dense body which was started in the Saturn Period. Then even brotherhood will be transcended; there will be neither me nor thee, for all will be consciously One in God, and man will have been emancipated by the help of Angels, Archangels and higher Powers.

An ancient story: From The Essene Book or the Teacher of Righteousness

 

And the Master took himself to the banks of the stream where the people were

gathered, those who did hunger after his words. And…(Jesus was asked) "Master,

tell us what are those things we should hold of high value, and what are those

things we should despise?"

And the Master answered, "All the ills which men suffer are caused by those

things without us; for what is within us can never make us suffer. A child dies,

a fortune is lost, house and fields burn, and all men are helpless, and they cry

out, "What shall I do now? What shall now befall me? Will this thing come to

pass?" All these are the words of those who grieve and rejoice over events which

do befall them, events which are not of their doing. But if we do mourn over

that which is not in our power, we are as the little child who weeps when the

sun leaves the sky. It was said of old, thou shalt not covet any thing that is

thy neighbor's; and now I say unto thee, thou shalt not desire any thing which

is not in thy power, for only that which is within thee doth belong to thee; and

that which is without thee doth belong to another. In this doth happiness lie;

to know what is thine, and what is not thine. If thou wouldst have eternal life,

hold fast to the eternity within thee, and grasp not at the shadows of the world

of men, which hold the seeds of death."

Is not all that happens without thee, outside of thy power? It is. And thy

knowledge of good and evil, is it not within thee? It is. Is it not, then, in

thy power, to treat of all which doth come to pass in the light of wisdom and

love, instead of sadness and despair? It is. Can any man hinder thee from doing

thus? No man can. Then shalt I not cry out, "What shall I do? What shall now

befall me? Will this thing come to pass?" For whatsoever may come to pass, thou

shalt judge it in the light of wisdom and love, and see all things with the eyes

of the Angels."

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Elisabeth B. Browning

 

Be great in act, as you have been in thought; let not the world see fear and sad distrust. Govern the motion of a kingly eye.

Only out of great wisdom – wisdom usually born of great pain – can the human being learn to love.

Manly P. Hall

for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,

for they will inherit the earth

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst

for righteousness,

for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,

for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart,

Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they will be called sons of God.

because of righteousness,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
