Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
How much light and music do we allow in our life? How often do we contact the light or music within? Are we daily visualizing the sun or focussing our attention in it, letting it work in our bodies, planet, solar system and universe until everything like a symphony of joy, harmony and love is melted in one great light?
Our lives are a play of shadows and light of God on different levels and we could evolve through our constant efforts to a greater state of consciousness and awareness of music and light. We have to experience its giving, beautiful and living qualities in order to transform ourselves. We don't need to believe blindly, that we can remember that knowledge of divine truth in us without reading books, discussing it with others or even being told about it. You can experience it alone; in a way that is growing from within and by attracting the divine love and energy of Christ and God by the way of your life.
We need nothing, but only to be open to receive and share the love of God. The qualities of a living spring and also of timelessness and stillness are approaching and calling us to a travel into the infinite realms. The music of the spheres is the way in which our supreme creator created all the existing worlds. And through this music, which is divine love HE sustains them. In HIM they "all live and move and have their being", and by that same music of the spheres they ultimately return to their source of being. It's soul's life, joy and spiritual food. It's omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. It's your eternal companion and with it we are never lonely, nor alone. We have to become one with it and become absorved in it, because it's the honey that feeds the soul.
In Italy, in the Residence of Costagrande, near Avesa and Verona, on the top of a hill, a place in which the light of the sun is very strong and transparent and the warmth of the earth and its fructiferous powers are very charming and splendid, an European International Seminar took place with about 50 participants from all over the world. Persons who are learning from the Rosicrucian Teachings.
One can not express with words the beauty of the hearts of Italian people, they are, as one can say, givers and have got the warmth and wonder of nature and of the sunlight in their beings. The main subject was how to conform ourselves to the annual cycle of the christic ray. This theme was worked on by groups under the biblical, philosophical and astrological aspects. There was time for devotional services, for learning from each other and for personal contacs. There was felt a strong energy of love, which spread its rays and touched the hearts of everyone. We know that each one of us will share the gifts of love which we received with anyone we meet in our own countries and environments.
Excerpts from The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception p. 122-124 and from Gleanings of a Mystic p. 124-155 by Max Heindel:
Here the first awakening brings to the spirit the sound of "the music of the spheres". In our Earth life we are so immersed in the little noises and sounds of our environment that we are incapable of hearing the music of the marching orbs, but the occult scientist hears it. He knows that the twelve signs of the Zodiac and the seven planets form the sounding-board and strings of "Apollo's seven stringed lyre". He knows that were a single discord to mar the celestial harmony from that grand Instrument there would be "a wreck of matter and a crash of worlds."
When it is said that this is the world of tone, it must not be thought that there are no colors. Many people know that there is an intimate connection beween color and tone; that when a certain note is struck, a certain colour appears simultaneously. So it is in the Heaven World. Color and sound are both present; but the tone is the originator of the color. Hence it is said, that this is particularly the world of tone, and it is this tone that builds all forms in the Physical World. The sound or tone which pervades this region, and is everywhere apparent as color, is his instrument, so to speak. It is this harmonious sound vibration which, as an elixir of life, builds into the threefold spirit the quintessence of the threefold body, upon which it depends for growth.
There remains, therefore, only one safe method for us, namely, to stay in the din of the battle field of the world, endeavoring to wrest from even the most unpromising conditions the material of soul growth by unselfish service, and at the same time to build within our own inner selves a sanctuary filled with that silent music which sounds ever in the serving soul as a source of upliftment above all the vicissitudes of earthly existence. Having that "living church" within, being in fact under that condition "living temples", we may turn at any moment when our attention is not legitimately required by temporal affairs to that spiritual house not made with hands and lave in its harmony. We may do that many times a day and thus restore continually the harmony that has been disturbed by the discords of terrestrial intercourse.
The divine creative "Word" has a mesage and a mission. It was born to "save the world" and "to give its life for the world". It must of necessity sacrifice its life in order to accomplish the rejuvenation of nature. Gradually it buries itself in the earth and commences to infuse its own vital energy into the millions of seeds which lie dormant in the ground. It whispers "the word of life" into the ears of beast and bird, until the gospel or good news has been preached to every creature.
The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptising more disciples than John, although in fact it was not Jesus who baptised, but his disciples. When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.
Now he had to go through Samaria. So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink? His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.
The Samaritan woman said to him, "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink.“ (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)
Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."
"Sir", the woman said, "You have nothing to draw with and and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?"
Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
The woman said to him,"Sir, give me this water so that I won't get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water":
He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back."
”I have no husband", she replied.
Jesus said to her, "You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband.
What you have just said is quite true."
"Sir", the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshipped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem."
Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in spirit and it truth.“
The woman said, "I know that Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."
Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he."
The things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.
Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods.
I already feel a world within opening its gates and in it all the real substances of which these in the outward world are shadows which pass away..
He is the entire vineyard,
and the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks,
a growing wisdom and joy that doesn't need to devour.
you are the open field in the glance
silence and fantasy
Look! every instant a humble miracle without words
sensible expansion of the sea in our chests
songs and caresses to the infants
our thirst and its pour
you are presence
the peace and inspiration of conscience
the sorrow of man falls drop for drop
wounds after wounds
bloody is the horror and misfortune of the dream
but that grace permeates us, sweet presence
thunder of light
rain after the sunny day
you fructify the fields
and this infinite yearning of light in our hearts
lifts us to the source
