Christianity – A Tree With Weak Roots


To my mind, Christianity can be likened to a tree with roots that are too weak to reach deep enough into the ground for its main nourishment. That’s what hiding the truth about the Jesus myth for too long has brought about. Such a tree in the long run cannot thrive. When it’s deprived of the food it really needs, it has to die a long drawn out slow death. * Christianity is a tree on which many branches appeared with the passing of time. One cannot help wondering how long it is going to take until it dawns on those in charge of them that the individual and collective development of our world has reached the point for forcing the truth about its main character out into the awareness of the masses.

For some time by now the energies have been right for this to happen. Christianity has come a long way since its earliest beginnings, but it seems to have escaped the notice of its leaders that the evolutionary process is an ongoing one that will never stop. We and everything that shares our world with us, individually and collectively, from the beginnings of human life on the Earth plane have relentlessly been moving forwards and upwards on the great spiral of life. Anything that resists this movement for too long is eventually pulled up by its roots, metaphorically speaking. It gets thrown onto the compost heap, so that in due course some good things of the Earth can grow from the nourishment provided.

It seems to me that Christianity’s main trouble is that it has not yet grown a taproot that is strong enough to reach downwards into God’s sacred wisdom and truth. How much chance of survival has a tree that has nothing but a superstructure that is based on a deception?

The law of life is love and based on honesty and truth. Whenever people and companies, organisations and even nations are doing something to break this law or if they have done so in the past, nothing in the whole of Creation can stop their trespasses from eventually finding their way into the bright light of the awareness of the masses. Independent of who we are and what high or low positions we may occupy in this lifetime, the Universe loves sinners so much that it presents them with many opportunities for making good where they once sinned. That’s the only way that anyone can be saved and redeemed, by none other than themselves. And the events that are necessary to achieve this are never intended as punishments. They are but tools for teaching us invaluable lessons that ensure that we shall never dream of sinning in that particular way again.

The law of Karma * decrees that every action causes a reaction. Ignorance of this law never protected anyone against having to live with the consequences of every one of their thoughts, words and deeds that are sent at any given moment into our world and the Universe beyond. Naturally, this goes as much for the churches of our world as their followers. And there is every likelihood that offences committed in the name of God, for example during the times of the inquisition and the witch hunts, weigh more heavily than ordinary ones in the Divine scales of justice that never err.

This applies especially when someone believes that their crime does not count for as long as they are hiding in the shelter of their church where no-one could see them. That’s what they must have thought at the time, but in due course every one of these sinners will find out, each through their own experiences, that they could not have been more wrong. God’s Universal laws see to it that every one of us, in the fullness of time and without fail, gets their just desserts, of that we can be sure.

Cleansing The Cesspool Of Human Consciousness


From the year 2008 the planet Pluto has been transiting the sign Capricorn, the sign that rules large institutions, like banks, building societies, insurance companies and so forth. The representatives of governments, the police, the legal and medical profession and in particular the religious belief systems of our world are not excluded from the purging and cleansing effect of Pluto’s energies. Ever more forcefully they are drawing everybody’s attention to that which had previously been hidden from public view and knowledge. Like scum on a mill pond, they are rising to the surface of our race’s individual and collective consciousness. And that gets me wondering how long it will take until the last one in our world comprehends that nothing can remain hidden in our world any longer.

This cleansing process will continue until the year 2023. In classical Greek mythology Pluto was the ruler of the underworld, a metaphor for the subconscious mind of us and our world. Under the influence of the Plutonian energies, drawn by the vibrations of the forces of love, wisdom and truth from above, the higher and highest levels of life, and forced upwards by Pluto, anything untoward rises like scum on a murky pond to the surface of our humankind’s consciousness. Christianity’s history can be likened to a pond that is part of the great cesspool of human consciousness, which for a long time has been waiting to be dredged and cleansed of the impurities of false beliefs that have their roots in the ignorance of God’s true nature and humankind’s as well as our race’s special relationship with its Creator.

This cleansing is a truly Herculean task. Almost every day a new scandal of one kind and another is crawling from the murky depths of our world’s consciousness to its surface. Each one of these events is comparable to a nasty and painful abscess that is waiting to be burst, so that the body on which it is growing – the spiritual body of the whole of humankind – can at last heal itself. And that’s precisely what has been happening for quite some time by now.

All of this raises the question whether Christianity will be capable of stepping back and distancing itself from the foolish arrogance of its spiritual infancy and childhood. Can it rise like the legendary phoenix from the ashes of its own funeral pyre and wing its way into a mature state of spiritual adulthood that knows nothing but honesty and integrity, and truly serves the Highest from its heart instead of its head? Is there enough strength left in Christianity to progress from its unevolved state of ignorance, the fool, into an honest, responsible and reliable wise one?

The word religion is based on the Latin religare ‘to bind’. The Heavens alone know – but they are smiling and not telling us – whether those within the Christian churches are capable of assisting their organisation to survive the transition from something of the head that keeps us away from God into a religion from the heart that this time really does tell the truth. Through tolerance and love for each other, regardless of anyone’s colour and/or beliefs, this religion would seek to connect ever more human beings with each other and with God. Will those in charge have the courage to confess that in the past they failed in this task because they did not understand the true meaning of God and that in truth the Divine Trinity means the Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, and their only born Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ?

Organisations, companies and whole countries are required to evolve from fool to wise one, just the same as every human being. Everybody has to make their own mistakes and is allowed to learn from them. Organisations are doing this, except religious ones. Who or what is it that keeps them trapped in the past and forces them to remain stuck with their obviously long outdated teachings. It does not seem to bother the religious leaders of our world that, what they call their sacred texts makes no sense for our times and the level of understanding ever more of us are reaching, and that through this they are losing ever more of their followers. How sad!

This reminds me of the Buddha’s advice for his disciples that was given a long, long time ago: ‘Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it, or because it is spoken and rumoured by many, or because it is found written in your religious books, or because it emanates from your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. When you find after observation and analysis that anything agrees with your reasoning and is conducive to the good and benefit of all, accept it and conduct your life by it.’

I shall never give up hope that one fine day one of the religious leaders of our world pluck up the courage and set a good example that others may wish to follow, by stepping forward and declaring that religions are involved in the evolutionary process of the whole of Creation, the same as everything else. Therefore, there were periods when his/her religion acted like a fool, who was ignorant that higher esoteric wisdom was hiding behind it’s sacred texts. Nobody would have any problems forgiving any one of the remaining religions if it were explained that God and the Angels once gave the myths and legends through the scribes of our world, with the intention that in due course the esoteric higher meaning behind the surface words would be revealed.

There could be no finer illustration of this than the story of the Master Jesus. Will Christianity ever tell us that it has discovered that Jesus never was an exterior force, because in truth it has always been a symbol of humankind’s own higher or God nature. The legend can be likened to a picture book description of the evolutionary journey every human being in earthly life is constantly travelling on the road of developing its higher or God nature.

As pointed out before, there would be no need to apologise. After all, everybody has to cover the same distance which starts with being a fool, a young and inexperienced soul, to a sage, an old and experienced one. Why should Christianity be exempt from taking part in it? If it is God’s will that it should renew itself and remain part of our world for a while longer, then it will happen – but only then.

Cycles Within Cycles


All life consists of cycles within cycles and every human being is a microcosm of the macrocosm of the Universe. Each human lifetime, even if it lasts over a hundred years, represents but one tiny cycle within many much greater ones. At the moment we take our first breath of earthly air, one of these cycles commences with the seconds, minutes and hours of our daily existence. Added to this after a while are the coming and going of the seasons of the world around us that can be likened to the different parts of our lives.

The progressions of the Moon in our birthcharts reveal that the development of our present lifetime is constantly moving forwards in two and half year cycles that take us through the experiences of every sign and house of the zodiac. As one complete cycle takes thirty years, if we are around long enough, we are required to navigate the boat of our life through them several times. Each time we move into a sign or house we have been through before, the Universe provides us with further opportunities for deepening our understanding of their lessons.

If you reflect on your present lifetime so far, you will probably be able to confirm that about every two and a half years different kind of experiences have come your way. Although I have been studying astrology for a very long time, whenever I take a closer look at someone’s birthchart and their progressions of the Moon, it never fails to amaze me with what accuracy astrology works. That, to me, is the best and most positive use that can possibly be made of the Divine science *.

The progressions have nothing in common with horoscopes and fortunetelling. They can be used as an instrument for becoming aware of the energies that at any given time are operating in our lives and what kind of lessons can typically be expected. Co-operating with these things eases the flow of our lifepath considerably and helps us to get into harmony with the cosmic energies, in preference to struggling against them, the way we all too frequently do.

Knowing about our Moon progressions makes it easier to take charge of our life and steer it in the right direction. The simplest way of doing this is through familiarising ourselves with the Universal laws and how they are affecting all life, including ours. When we learn how to conduct it in keeping with these laws, with the passing of time our experiences are sure to provide us with sufficient proof that the love we send into our world really does return to us. As with this our trust in the fundamental goodness of the life that has been given to us grows, our desire to peer into the future to see what it may – or may not – have in store for us, goes from us.

The progression have an element of forecasting what kind of experiences are likely to be drawn into our life, but merely as general trends, tendencies and energies that are influencing us during each progression. As everybody’s earthly lessons are different from all others, there are no hard and fast rules about what is going to happen and how things will manifest themselves. That’s why looking at our future progressions is by no means a form of fortune telling. The nature of the lessons each one has in store for us depends on the planetary ruler of the houses and signs in question and the life lessons they are designed to teach. It’s basically that simple and no secrets are involved.

And if what you are reading has whetted your appetite for finding out more about astrology, how about having a go at ‘Being Your Own Astrologer’? In my view, there is no need for spending large amounts of money on books and courses, and getting ever more confused as a result, when everything you need for your own spot of stargazing can be read and downloaded from my website free of charge. As you move along, you will find that the more you share your learning with those around you, the more astrological insights will come to you intuitively, i.e. from the inner guidance of your Highest Self, who in this way will be assisting your studies.

The zodiac is a symbol of the great wheel of life or fortune that never halts or goes into retrograde motion. Every lifeform, including human beings, is constantly in the process of evolving into something better, more beautiful and perfect. Perfection in this context means whole, i.e. every aspect of our nature integrated and all of them harmoniously working together as one, the way they are doing in our Creator, the Great Father/Mother. Round and round the zodiac our spirit and soul wander, spending countless numbers of times in every one of its signs and houses, occupied with the building, shaping and improving of our earthly personality. Each new round moves us onto a somewhat higher level of experiences.

This continues until somewhere along the line our higher Christ or God nature begins to stir from its slumber and, with the passing of time takes over and absorbs its lower earthly counterpart into itself. When the two parts of someone have fully merged into one, that person has evolved into a Christed one in their own right. They are then ready to walk hand in hand with God and the Angels and, under their guidance and protection, can make valuable contributions towards the fulfilment of God’s great plan * of life. And that’s the only way every one of us will eventually be capable of serving earthly life for the highest good and greatest joy of all.

But for as long as our lower selves are struggling with Earth life on their own and are not yet acting with the conscious support of our Highest or Christ nature, for us earthlings there is no way of knowing what the highest good might be. This changes when the higher aspect of our being has completely taken over its earthly counterpart. It then thinks, acts and speaks through us and we know intuitively and spontaneously how to behave and react to the people we meet the right way.

Literalism


One cannot help wondering what will happen to those who to this day are so obstinately clinging to literalism in the religions of our world, not merely Christianity, when they return to the spirit world and are given opportunities for reviewing the conduct of every one of their lifetimes and especially the most recent one. How will they then be feeling about their limited horizons? For as long as Christianity sticks to its dogma about literalism, those who are presently responsible for it will be blinding themselves to the fact that on the soul level every human being is and always has been a Christian *. This is because, even though for a long time merely in seed form, all human hearts contain a tiny spark of the Great Light of the Christ Star, the Universal Christ, only born Son/Daughter of the Great Father/Mother of all life.

Isn’t it time that Christianity gave up the notion that earthly life is a one-off thing and with this removed the fear element from its teachings by telling the truth about life? That life, including that of every human being, is a never ending learning curve; that the law of life is evolution and everything in the whole of Creation consists of cycles within cycles and is constantly winding its way forwards and upwards on God’s gigantic evolutionary spiral of life. This is how every human being, without exception, in the course of a great many lifetimes moves from the lowest level, the sinner, to the highest level of the saint, i.e. someone like Jesus though obviously not a reincarnation of the man who never existed. This is the stage when we have reached every human being’s final goal of being a Christed one in our own right.

From the moment human life was introduced to the Earth, God and the Angels have never stopped accompanying and keeping us under close observation. To assist the first human beings with their earthly education, they have been guiding us through our lessons and also protecting us, mostly against ourselves, whenever the need for it arose. And that’s what they are doing to this day.

Right now they are shaking their heads in disbelief about the short-sightedness of some of our world’s religious leaders who, instead of courageously moving forwards into the Aquarian Age and making the required changes, insist on stubbornly peering to that which once was. Anxiously they are clinging to a past that never was a pleasant one, because of the lessons of the patriarchy *. That is how, with the help of power struggles, warmongering and incessant trouble and strife, lying and cheating, dishonesty and corruption, God and the Angels have been teaching us and our world the value of honesty and truth and above all, of PEACE.

What a pity that those concerned do not know that, regardless of what objections against progress anyone may nurture in their bosom, every individual’s evolution and that of our world has always been relentlessly sweeping everything before it that is in its way. It makes no difference whether we like this concept or not, or whether it makes us happy or sad, nothing in the whole of Creation ever stands still and remains the same. Everything is in a constant state of flux. If our religions refuse to go with the flow of this great river of life, it will gradually sweep each one of them away.

To ensure that things can only go so far and no further with us and our world, God and the Angels have always been guiding us. To stop earthly life from getting completely out of hand, in view of the destructive urges of humankind’s lower nature with its callousness and brutality, greed and avarice, God and the Angels also had to protect us – mostly against ourselves. That is why, for example, we shall never be allowed to colonise and make a mess of other planets of our solar system and beyond it.

What a long way we and our world have come under the influence of the Aquarian energies in a comparatively short space of time. Yet, while the whole of Creation has constantly been moving forwards and upwards on the great evolutionary spiral of life, our existing religions have turned themselves into spiritual dinosaurs. Stubbornly they refuse to change in keeping with the evolutionary pace of the world around it. Is there any help for organisations that to this day resist growing from fools into wise ones?

Should they keep on refusing to mature into spiritual adulthood and keeping their heads stuck in the sand ostrich fashion, how many of the remaining religions of our world will be able to adjust themselves to the increasingly powerful spiritual awareness that has been taking over our world for quite some time? It is being brought about by the flow of knowledge from the Highest levels of life into all those who are able and willing to receive it. Will any of belief systems join these ranks?

Spontaneity


The following is the essence of a teaching about spontaneity from the White Eagle group of message guides that came my way in ‘Stella Polaris’ February/March 2011: ‘It is one thing to learn about scientific facts, as they are known in earthly life, and quite a different one when spiritual or occult truth is concerned. Until you have built into your soul body the creative God atoms of light and with their help have found a deep inner understanding of such matters, you cannot serve life as you would like to. Knowing something with your mind only is quite different from being able to comprehend it with your inner self. The result of the latter is spontaneous good thinking and actions through which the light of God’s love flows and that have the power of creatively raising the atoms and vibrations of your whole world.

‘The growth of your mental bodies depends on what kind of habitual thought patterns you develop. To most effectively train theirs, wise ones during their times of prayers, meditations and quiet reflections, tune the receiver/transmitter stations of their earthly minds into the frequencies of the highest levels of life. This, with the passing of time, changes their thinking and behaviour patterns quite naturally. By conducting their lives the right way and without hesitation following the advice of their Highest or Christ Self, this part of their nature gradually takes over their whole being.

‘Through this your higher mental vehicles develop and you are evolving into a living channel and bridge between Heaven and Earth. As a result the living God within all life can flow through you and work on transforming your planet into a state that is far removed from the way it is known at present. The new Earth that God and the Angels are in the process of creating will eventually be so advanced that, although it still consists of the same substance, its matter will be filled with more light and therefore be much less dense than you know it now.’

The Golden Future Of Humankind


There now follows the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that came to me as the Lodge’s Monday Thought 16th April 2018: ‘Miracles come into being as a result of putting into operation the Divine law of love. At all times it manifests itself in earthly life as much as it does throughout the rest of God’s Creation. On the Earth plane human beings are used in gentle and beautiful ways to bring miracles about. You have no idea when God and the Angels are creating one of them through you.

‘For quite some time by now, they have been working on the greatest miracle that has ever taken place on the Earth. It consists of healing the minds and bodies, spirits and souls and each one of you individually and collectively of your whole world. This is possible because on the inner level of life there is no separation between anything, whenever one of you finds healing not only your whole world but the entire Creation heals with you.

‘Once more we would like to draw your attention to the importance of the Divine law of love. In your world it not only manifests itself in goodwill, kindness and tolerance between people, but also that in ever more of you a new kind of faith and trust is stirring. These feelings keep on growing the more you find out that all life throughout the whole of Creation is one great spiritual family of all life; that on the higher and highest levels God and the Angels and Masters are taking care of you and your world, assisted on the lower levels of the spirit world by countless numbers of friends and helpers. All together we are responsible for the development of you and your world.

‘This kind of knowledge awakens in human hearts and souls a growing interest in the Angelic beings in charge of other planets and studying other parts of the enormous spiritual Universe where planet Earth once was crystallized into a form of matter so that you, during lifetimes spent on it could receive earthly education. The great plan of life provides that each one of you would be spending many lifetimes playing the role of a mere earthling, so that you could get to know and understand the material world you would be placed in time and again. For a long time you would be unaware of your true nature, but towards the end of your earthly curriculum the truth would be revealed to you.

‘Great things are in store for every human being. In your higher etheric bodies you will in due course be able to visit and get to know the worlds of much more highly evolved beings than you have ever consciously known before. They no longer require physical bodies for getting around and neither will you by that time. For however long you choose, you can live among and be one of them. There is no need to be afraid of getting lost in the vastness of space because God and the Angels will always be with and part of you, the way they have always been. The only difference will be that you are not only conscious of their presence, you also can see them. They will forever be guiding and protecting you, the same as they have always done.

‘So be of good cheer, dear friends of the Earth. Each time earthly life threatens to get on top of you, keep on keeping on and look forward to these things. If occasionally the going gets too tough, take comfort from knowing that what’s happening to you is but a small part of your evolutionary journey which is sure to pass. Trust us when we say that all is well, all is good and rests safely in the loving hands of God and the Angels, and ours, because that is the truth. We hope that knowing this will help you to endure what your karmic debts still have to present to you with as much courage and strength as you can muster. And never forget that we are with you to supply you with these qualities and as you move through your experiences, they are quite naturally developing within you.

‘Refuse to limit your thinking and conceptions of earthly life. Send your loving thoughts into the spiritual Universe and further into what’s known to you as outer space of the physical one. Become aware that all lifeforms that exist anywhere in the whole of Creation are one big family and that therefore they are your siblings. In your thoughts move further and further away from your small planet and mingle with the beings of other worlds, send them your love and greetings. The time is going to come when you will be visiting them, not with the help of clumsy spaceships but using your higher etheric bodies. Spaceships as you know them would be of no use to you out there.’

My Dream


The Universe dreams its dreams through us, so that we can do our share of grounding them in earthly life and making them into a reality there. As long as we go where our inner guidance tells us and endeavour to give of our best at all times, it is highly likely that in due course we shall succeed. My favourite dream is of Mother Earth as a place where the people of all nations are living together in peace and harmony, where wars, violence and crime, hunger and homelessness, sickness and suffering no longer exist. I know that dreams have the power of coming true, especially when – in spite of the tests and trials that are inevitable on the individual and collective pathway through earthly life – we hold onto them and have faith in the high and holy destiny that at the end of their earthly education awaits every one of God’s beloved children of the Earth.

There is talk about a new golden age * that will come on the Earth. The selfishness, greed and corruption that are part of the lower earthly aspect of humankind’s nature will then have been overcome and are no longer known. As Mahatma Ghandi once said: ‘Mother Earth has enough for everyone’s needs, but not for everyone’s greed.’ The golden age is going to come about in quite a natural way the more of us are becoming aware of their true nature and are acting responsibly because they have willingly left the desires of their earthly nature behind and are now following the guidance of their Highest or God Self. At that point of our development, our life experiences have taught us that all our needs will always be met. Therefore, we don’t find it difficult to merely take what we need and happily leave the rest for those following behind. We rest safely in the knowledge that, the more we do this the more there will be enough for everybody. Hoarding things and over-consuming for us belong to the past and we do our best to recycle as much as possible.

And that’s how we, all of us together, slowly but surely are going to bring the new golden age into being. Young and insufficiently evolved souls will no longer be reincarnating onto the Earth when her transformation is complete. Having finished with the early parts of our earthly education, they will cease to be required as teaching aids. So, what can any one of us do to make this dream into a reality? For as long as we are not afraid to ask God and the Angels to show us how to go about it, there is no reason why any of our dreams of the future should remain unfulfilled. It is true that with the help and will of God and the Angels all things are possible *, but it needs to be born in mind that things cannot happen until our karmic debts have been fully redeemed. Irrespective of what may still be in store for us individually and collectively and which tasks are waiting to be attended to, the evolutionary spiral of life stops for nobody. It never goes into backward motion and all lifeforms throughout the whole of Creation are ceaselessly moving with it.

Treachery, falseness, jealousy and exploitation will also belong to the past. Instead we are all doing our best to support each other, especially in our creative endeavours. Because of this there is going to be a great blooming of all manner of artistic expressions. To make this kind of dream into a reality on the Earth plane, all we have to do is to place it into the loving hands of God and the Angels and work hard on making it come true. Whenever this happens anywhere, they are only too happy to do the rest. Many of us have been dreaming of a peaceful world for a long time. And because of millions of contributions towards this end, many positive, good and beautiful things as expressions of humankind’s higher evolved nature are already manifesting themselves in many place, without being reported about. I believe that by now they are outweighing the negative and ugly, evil and destructive things that emanate from our race’s lower unevolved nature. Alas, our mass media seem to have got into the habit of reporting too much about the latter. Is this because good things don’t sell newspapers and fill airtime on the many radio and TV channels that are now available, every one of them hungry for what they consider to be the juiciest titbits of news?

Be that as it may, you and I have been granted the gift of another earthly lifetime so God and the Angels can teach us, with the help of our inner guidance, how to counteract the spreading of negativity and fear. Each one of us is here to make their contribution towards laying the foundations for the good, happy and wholesome future, towards which our whole world has inexorably been moving for a long time. Even while we were still unaware of what was happening to us and our world, that’s what all of us have always been doing and that never alone, but hand in hand with God and the Angels. Now that ever more of us are waking up to their true nature and understand what is at stake, this process can be speeded up considerably by paying attention to our inner guidance.

And so, bearing in mind that many small people, in many small places, doing many small things can change our world, let’s roll up our sleeves – figuratively speaking – and get to work in the most positive and constructive ways we can think of. Each time we notice that something good is being done by someone, we can support their efforts by refusing to wonder what kind of motivations could be hiding behind what’s visible on the surface. It is better by far to focus and hold onto that which is already good, right and beautiful in our world.

And when one of our world leaders finally begins to show signs of working for peace and goodwill, we awakened ones can support them because we know that, even for as long as someone is not consciously are of it themselves, ultimately every human being has always responded to the impulses received from their Highest or God Self, the Universal Christ, in whom we are all one. S/He has always been guiding each one of us and our world forwards and upwards on the individual and collective evolutionary spiral. The Sun in our birthcharts by sign and house position shows the direction in which we as individuals shall be moving for the whole of our present lifetime.

A great deal can be achieved on the inner level of life by directing our thoughts to humankind’s higher or Christ nature, the part of everybody that is all good. At the moment of a new spirit’s entry into earthly education, a tiny spark from the Great Light of the Universal Christ is implanted in the deepest innermost recesses of its soul. This is everybody’s first soul memory and from the word go, the spirit and its soul are constantly responding to the pull of the light of the Christ Star, the light of all lights and the Sun above and behind the Sun in the sky above us in earthly life. Lifetime after lifetime its love keeps on drawing us forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life.

Love and light are the greatest powers in the whole of Creation with whose help quite literally anything can be conquered. Spiritual knowledge is light and not knowing is darkness. And once the power of God’s love and light begins to shine through our words, wherever they go darkness cannot resist for long, but dissolves. And because everything that is good, right and beautiful is motivated by love, every bit of it has the power to absorb some of that which is still evil, ugly and destructive in our world. The love behind it has the power of transmuting it into blessing and healing energies for all life. Therefore, the more good we send into our world, the more of its darkness is going to be absorbed it and transformed by power of God’s love and light.

In the golden age oppression and slavery, especially of the religious kind, humankind’s main excuse for practically continuous warmongering for thousands of years, will finally have gone from our world. There will then be:


Only one religion, the religion of love.
One country, the whole of Mother Earth.
One race, the race of humankind.
One gender, who is androgynous, whole and holy.
One language, the language of the heart.
One God, the God of love,
The Divine Trinity of
The Great Father/Mother of all life
And their only born Son/Daughter,
The Universal Christ,
Known by everybody as
Omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.

And that, dear Friends, is my dream.

From Fool To Wise One – Part Twenty

The Lord’s Prayer For The Aquarian Age


Say the following words quietly to yourself and pay attention to the feelings that rise within your innermost heart and soul:

Our Father/Mother, Thou art in Heaven . . .

Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, Thy Heaven is here on Earth with me, inside my own heart. God and Goddess, Thou art as much part of me as I am of Thee. Thy Spirit is nothing but love and dwells in me. The spirit of love knows no separation. Thou art The Eternal Light. All your characteristics are waiting to come alive in each one of us, merely waiting to be brought forth by us. Thy Divine spark of the Christ Spirit is now coming alive in me. Thou art the flame of pure love and the state of Heaven in my heart.

Hallowed be Thy name . . .

With my whole being I worship Thee, o holiest of holy Mother/Father, Lord and Lady, Master and Mistress, God of power and might and Goddess of wisdom and love. Heaven and Earth are filled with Thy glory. Thou art omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent and everything Thou hast brought into being is sacred. It includes me and with all my heart and soul I honour and worship Thee and Thy Creation. I bless Thy Holy Name. Deep within the silence of my heart I listen to its sound, the great AUM. It renews Thy light, life, and perfection within me, for I am Thy child.

Thy Kingdom come . . .

Whenever I reflect on Thee and speak Thy blessed name, Thy light in my heart grows more powerful and grows into a blazing flame that fills my whole being. It unites itself with the sacred fire of Mother Earth and Father Sun and that cleanses me and heals me by burning my weaknesses and impurities. My dark thoughts and feelings dissolve when I dwell on the splendour of Thy great love and devotion to me, until nothing but Thy shining purity of thoughts and feelings fill my whole being. By filling it with Thy light and beauty, I realise that Thy kingdom is coming alive in me and is here with me in earthly life.

Thy Will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven . . .

Thy will created me and brought me into being. With the passing of time Thy light and beauty has re-created me and that brings me ever closer to the perfection of wholeness. Please make me ever more like Thee, so that through me the world around me is blessed and healed and transforms itself into the new Earth. The more Thy light illuminates my whole being, the more I glorify and praise Thee and Thy sacred name. May the purity and perfection of the Christ Star, the symbol of Thy only born son/daughter, the Spirit of the Universal Christ, come alive in all human hearts. May its radiance grow ever stronger, until the whole of humankind reflects Thy Glory and through us blesses and heals all life.

Give us today our daily bread . . .

O Christ Spirit, Thou art the Star of all stars, the Light of all lights and I am a tiny spark of Thee. Thou has placed me in earthly life so that I should grow and evolve and in the fullness of time respond to Thy calling. The light in me is a reflection of Thine. With every passing day it shines in me more powerfully and visibly, doing its share of removing more of the darkness of ignorance of earthly life. As I consciously open my heart to Thee, my understanding of Thy wisdom and truth increases and with every breath I take Thou and I are growing a bit more into one.

The gifts Thou art bringing me are the bread that not only nourishes my heart and soul but through me that of those around me and ultimately our whole world. The sweetness of Thy Divine spirit is coming ever more alive in me and filling the cup of my love for Thee and my gratitude to overflowing. The pure flame of Thy Divine passion cleanses, purifies and heals every aspect of my being. All my human passions and earthly desires I surrender to Thee and pray that they should be transformed into blessing and healing energies for all life.

Having created us, Thou knowest better than anyone what rebellious creatures we are and how we hate to be lorded over. But as our whole being fills ever more with Thy love, we are willing and capable of fulfilling superhuman tasks as long as they comply with Thy will and wishes. Thou art the truly beloved of my heart and soul and that is much more than a Lord and Lady, Master and Mistress could ever hope to be. Thee I follow willingly and trustingly. And the power of Thy love, when it fills our whole being, provides us with wings to lift ourselves and those around us above the concerns of earthly life and helps us to view their importance from the right angle, that of the spirit.

And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us . . .


By sharing the gifts you so generously bestowed upon me to all who accompany me on my pathway through life, I freely give of my love. Freely and willingly, I forgive every one who has ever hurt, harmed or wounded me. And I pray that Thou will help the ones whom I have caused pain, to forgive me, so that we may set each other free and our karmic slates be wiped clean and we are ready for the experiences of the Age of Aquarius. My soul rejoices at the knowledge that the Christ Spirit is part of all my siblings in the human family.

May Thy glory and radiance, wisdom and power work through me to bring rest, healing and peace to the whole humankind. I pray that no shadow will ever again fall between Thee and us. Please help all of us to overcome our selfishness and transform our weaknesses into strengths. And with every day that passes, help me to love Thee more dearly and to see Thee more clearly in all that is in Thy Creation – totally and unconditionally, the way Thou lovest all of us.

Leave us not when we are in temptation,
But deliver us and our world from all evil.
Help us to uplift and transmute the greatest evil into the
Highest good and the greatest joy for all life,
In keeping with the will and wishes of Thy great plan.


Thou art the only one who knows what tests and trials my soul still needs to endure until the balance of my spiritual account has been restored to wipe out my failures and wrong-doings of previous lifetimes. I know that the obstacles I am still encountering are not punishments of some kind, but were created by my thoughts, words and actions of this lifetime and previous ones. I forgive myself for this and take responsibility for the things I am still struggling to resolve. I understand that any sickness of the human physical body and mind are indications of an underlying sickness of soul and spirit. Please help all of us to heal every aspect of our being.

With every breath I take, I breathe in Thy light and breathe out Thy love for the blessing and healing of all of Creation. In this day and every day, grant me Thy help and guidance, in all I say and do. Please, give me Thy strength and courage so that I may triumphantly overcome the things that are still troubling me. My whole being is crying for Thee to come to my rescue, to heal me and re-birth me into my true Divine nature, to once again be a fully conscious child of Thine, the way I once was and on the inner level of life never stopped being. Through the difficulties I am experiencing you are teaching me to take better care of myself in mind, body, spirit and soul. I thank Thee for this most gracious lesson.

May these struggles help me to discover and release my latent healing abilities, so that Thou and the Angels can work through me. And when I have recovered sufficiently, grant me the grace to show others how they, with Thy help, can also heal themselves. As I have been helped, one of these days I shall be a way-finder for others who are suffering the way I once did, so that my life grows ever more into a blessing and a gift for our world and everything that is in it, in accordance with Thy great plan of life, will and wishes.

Grant me the gift of Thy strength and wisdom to rise above the desires and temptations of my small earthly self. Deliver me from the evil of the dark thoughts and feelings that try to keep me from reaching out for Thee and Thy goodness. By learning to fully trust Thee and Thy Divine guidance and protection, help me to shed my fears and doubts, so that I may follow in total trust wherever Thou leadest me. And whenever the feelings of my earthly self threaten to overwhelm me, knowing that they are not the work of the devil but that of my frightened earthly self, grant me the gift of Thy strength to say to this part of me: ‘It’s all right, calm down.’ Help me to rise above the lower aspects of my being and bring forth, from deep within me, my own Christ nature, so it can show me how to do that only that which is for the highest good and the greatest joy of all.

For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory . . .

My life is one with Thee and it is my will that it shall be so, for ever more. Thou art the light within my spirit and soul that is now safely returning me into the oneness with Thee. Trusting that in all Eternity I shall be safe with Thee, I surrender my whole being unto Thy care. I pray that Thy will be my will and that my will be Thine, that Thy sacred words and prayers are ours, so that the great plan of life unfolds in keeping with Thy will and wishes rather than ours. Show all of us how to manifest Thy love, beauty and perfection that are also in us, although for many still in seed form. Help us to conduct our lives, now and forever in keeping with Thy Universal laws, so that our vibrations become ever more purified and be compatible with Thine.

Thou art the true Kingdom of our being and Thine is the power and the glory that is now coming alive in us and our world with the awakening of They Divine spark in ever more human hearts. May this continue until the healing power of Thy sacred love fills all our hearts and souls to overflowing. May it spread from there into the farthest and remotest corners of Creation, to finally return to Thee enriched with the wisdom and understanding all of us have gained thus far in the course of our evolutionary journey up the spiral of life and back into the oneness with Thee, our Creator.

O Great White Spirit, fountain of all Holiness, Thou art the source of all life, light and healing. May all human beings be restored and regenerated, giving and receiving love, breathing out and breathing in nothing but love and light, together with Thee. By making peace with Thee, beloved Father/Mother, the human spirit and soul enters into Thy light and is cleansed and healed. Our whole being comes to rest in Thee, our body relaxes and every cell and atom of it are restored and regenerated. And when one of us healing, all humankind, Mother Earth, and all of Creation are healing with us.

So it shall be – for ever and ever,
In Thy sacred and most holy name.


May the blessing and healing power of Thy love flow through us and everything that is in our world. Through all channels who are ready to serve you, may the power of Thy love flow for the healing of humankind’s emotional and spiritual wounds of all lifetimes. All these things I am asking in the sacred name of the Universal Christ. Thou art the highest Star, the brightest light, the greatest love and the highest mind in the whole of Creation.

Amen

The Background Of The Lord’s Prayer

Part One


Although the Lord’s Prayer is considered by many as the prayer of all prayers, it is an ancient one that existed in different forms long before Christianity ‘adopted’ it from the religions of the Gnostic movement. All other details of the Jesus story came about the same way. To hide this background, the Roman church after a while declared the Gnostic religions as ‘pagan’ and false beliefs. This too was part of the Age of Pisces, the age of deceptions, blind faith, martyrdom and suffering. The brightest light casts the deepest shadows and the combined force of Jupiter’s and Neptune’s energies saw to it that this is indeed what happened.

I believe that nothing that ever takes place in earthly life or anywhere else does so without the will of the Highest. Nothing is ever wasted and everything serves a wise and higher purpose. It was part of God’s great plan of life that decreed that during the Piscean Age our race should fully explore the unfathomable depths to which our small earthly selves are capable of sinking, especially when it comes to dealing out inhumanities towards each other and the rest of God’s creatures. That’s why during the early stages of Piscean Age the Angels and Masters in charge of our world presented the spirit of the Universal Christ to us through the Jesus story, another new legend.

The symbols of the various stations of the evolutionary pathway all human spirits and their souls have to walk in earthly life are eternally valid nuggets of wisdom and truth. Every religion that ever appeared in our world contained them in ever changing form. These details were extracted and carried forward as the core of a new faith for the Age of Pisces. They were skilfully woven into the rich and colourful tapestry of a new tale that was designed to capture the imagination of the people of that time. It was needed to serve as an efficient instrument for stamping out the Gnostic movement, with its highly advanced beliefs in every individual’s direct experience of God. It was too early for them to appear when they did.

And that is why with the help and the will of God the Jesus story was presented by the church, whose brainchild it was, as if it were based on historical facts and was about a God-man who had once appeared in the flesh in earthly life. For a long time humankind was to be kept in the dark about the fact that in truth it is a legend loaded with metaphors and symbolisms about the human evolutionary journey through earthly life. Irrespective of how unlikely the details of this tale were and how much superior the wisdom of the Gnostic religions were and the extent to which the Gnostics resisted, they too were gradually forced to take every word of the tale literally and as gospel truth.

Those who refused to go along with this found themselves branded as non-believers. They had be removed by any means the followers of the new religion in their religious zeal could think of, for example by beheading or burning their fellow citizens on the stake, in the name of a non-existing God. This policy was eagerly pursued by the leaders of the new church and institutions like the Inquisition came into being as a result. They played a vital part in ensuring that every last bit of the ancient esoteric wisdom of the Goddess, the feminine aspect of the Divine, for a long, long time had to remain hidden behind the story’s surface words.

The Great Architect’s plan of life decreed that this kind of knowledge should be suppressed as much as possible during the Age of Pisces, so that we as a race could become familiar with the darkest aspects of our own and everybody else’s human nature. To provide as many teaching and learning opportunities as possible, until our entry into the Age of Aquarius the most evil drives and urges of humankind’s lower nature were given free reign to express and manifest themselves. This was particularly blatant in the ranks and files of the church that sprung up around the tale. Should you now be tempted to sit in judgement over the people who took part in these things, do not overlook that it is more than likely that those who by now have matured into spiritual adulthood took part in the atrocities and corruption that for a long time were rampant in everything connected with the church. We must have been there, sometimes dishing them out and in the next lifetime being on the receiving end.

Until our entry into the Aquarian age we were not to know that God is as much part of us as we are part of God and that the Angels are in charge of us and our world and constantly observing it from its spiritual background. And that is how, with the passing of time, the Christian church served as the Angels’ instrument of evil and for ever more cutting us off from the Source of our being. Not knowing that the figure of Jesus is a metaphor for everyone’s own Christ nature was their way of hiding it from us, until we were waking up from our spiritual slumber and ready to be reborn into the awareness of God’s true nature and our own. This would enable us to seek redemption and forgiveness for even the last one of the sins that could have been committed many lifetimes ago.

Therefore, let’s not sit in judgement but bear in mind that none of us is any better than any of the young and inexperienced souls who are presently sharing the Earth with us. We older ones are merely on a different phase of our evolutionary journey, that’s all. May none of us ever forget the wisdom contained in St John 8:7: ‘Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said: ‘Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.’

God’s great plan provides that the further we move into the Age of Aquarius, the age of truth that comes to every soul directly from the Source, the more we shall value and appreciate the morsels of wisdom we are finding along our way. Through developing discernment and learning to listen to the voice of the living God within, our inner guidance, the truth is now beginning to reveal itself intuitively to anyone who is ready and willingly pays attention. This is how ever more of us are now receiving God’s sacred wisdom and knowledge given to us and our world by the Angels around the throne of God, the Christ circle.

Plotinus, who lived circa 204/205–270 AD, was one of the most outstanding Pagan philosophers. His metaphysical writings have inspired centuries of Pagan, Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Gnostic metaphysicians and mystics. All those many years ago he wrote: ‘Before we had our becoming here, we existed There, people other than now. We were pure souls. Intelligence inbound with the entire of reality, not fenced off, integral to that All. . . . And then it was as if One voice sounded. One word was uttered and from every side an ear attended and received and there was an effective hearing. Now we have become a dual thing, no longer that which we were at first, dormant, and in a sense no longer present.’

This is the kind of wisdom the Christian religion was designed to suppress. The plan decreed that it should succeed and that it would take a long time before we discovered that life is by no means a one-off thing, the way Christianity teaches to this day, but an endless and flawless continuum. However, for as long as we took the Christian teachings literally, we would think that when no-one was looking, we could sin as much and as thoroughly as the temptations of our lower nature invited us to. No, it wasn’t the devil’s voice we heard and followed, but the desires of our own as yet untamed lower animal nature. For the time being these urges would be projected onto something outside us in opposition to God, the devil whose job it was to lure unsuspecting human beings into the darkest abysses of human experience. God and the devil were forces outside of us, we were told.

If we believed in Jesus, or at least said we did, on judgement day in some far distant future He would appear again and redeem all our sins. We, in our present physical body, would then rise from our grave to enjoy Eternity with Him. All non-believers would be eternally damned and fried in the fires of hell forever and ever. If we merely pretended we believed in Jesus, no-one would know. It would take a long time before we found out that God is the name for everyone’s own higher or Christ nature. Because of this God is as much part of us as we are of God, nothing we ever think or do is unknown to God, and none of our deeds and misdeeds have ever gone unnoticed. Their memory of each one is held in the Akashic records and they are part of the soul of our world. See the link at the end of this chapter.

When we have handed our physical body back to Mother Earth and returned to the world of light, our true home, and rested there for a while, the wise ones in charge of us will show us these records. With the help of the evidence before us we ourselves assess and judge how well we managed to balance our spiritual bankbook in the course of our most recent earthly lifetime. If some of our debts are still outstanding, we can apply for another lifetime that will bring us fresh opportunities for settling them.

The Background Of The Lord’s Prayer

Part Two

The Cross Of Life


Re-establishing our inner connection with the spirit of the Universal Christ is the birthright of every human child of the Earth. Our task as aspiring healers and lightbringers is the building of a new bridge of love between Heaven and Earth, God and all of humankind. And I hope my version of the Lord’s Prayer will help you to do this. True prayers from our heart and soul invite the stream of the Great Father/Mother’s eternal love, wisdom and truth to fill our whole being. From there it can then flow into the farthest and remotest corners of Creation. This spiritual power gradually transforms Mother Earth into a planet of healing and peace. Ignorance and fear are the two greatest evils of our world, which to this day are hindering this development. May the living waters of the Highest Mind, Its wisdom and truth, cleanse and purify our consciousness and that of our world.

May our new understanding of God’s great plan of life help us to dissolve and get rid of these evils, once and for all. Like all truly great ideas, this plan is ingeniously simple. It works as follows: every human spirit who enters earthly life for the first time is like a blank slate on which nothing has been written before. We are like newly born infants who have just left the warmth and security of our mother’s womb. Never having experienced Earth life before, all we know is that which is happening around us. We have already absorbed the influences on our mother through her bloodstream and nervous system. So that we should become familiar with the deepest and darkest aspects of our own nature and humankind’s in general, we are born into environments where they can be explored. The people around us are our only teachers and by copying their behaviour, we learn and become ever more like them.

This is what’s happening to the young and inexperienced souls who are sharing earthly life with us at present. Witnessing the uninhibited killing, maiming and the sadistic infliction of suffering of the grownups around them, as soon as they are old enough they want to be accepted as full members of society. Wishing to be like the others, these young souls have precious little choice but joining those around them in their thinking and activities. This places them into polar opposition to old and experienced souls who are in the process of developing their Christ nature. This means learning to love wisely, the way God loves all of us, His/Her children of the Earth, without exception. Each can only find out through their own experiences the truth of the saying that love understands all and because of it forgives all.

When we forgive our younger siblings for their trespasses, because we love them as children of God and our siblings in the family of humankind and all life, this does not mean we are condoning their deeds. But, considering what the future has in store for these youngsters, including reincarnating onto a much less evolved planet than the Earth, don’t you think that forgiveness and tolerance, compassion and love are more in place than anything else? No matter what age someone’s physical body may be, the one inhabiting it can nonetheless be a young soul. You don’t have to be an Angel who is watching in the background of our existence to tell a young soul from an old one. Their actions and reactions to people and situations in daily life tell us this much more easily than anything else.

Old souls know that the Universal laws ensure that any kind of suffering we inflict upon others during any stage of our development does eventually return to us, if not in this lifetime then in a future one. Yet, they are also aware that our Creator’s love and wisdom sees to it that this should only happen when our earthly self has grown strong enough to shoulder the cross we ourselves created in the ignorance of our innocence. The cross of life we are all carrying around with us is our earthly personality with all its flaws and imperfections, weaknesses as well as strengths.

However, that is not the way God created us. The small earthly self was developed by none other than us, not in just one lifetime but many. In previous ones this part of our being produced the hurdles and obstacles we now have to struggle with and try to overcome in our daily lives. Every bit of the Karmic debts one of us ever incurred in one of their lifetimes will eventually be presented for settlement and redemption, of that we can be sure, even though to come about may take a thousand lifetimes ahead. The Creator’s wisdom provides that by this time we shall be sufficiently evolved to ask the Angels for their help. We shall know that they are constantly with us and that, in spite of the fact that they can and will not do our work for us, all we have to do is humbly request their support. For anyone who asks, they are always willing to give sufficient strength and courage to deal with what has to be faced.

Whatever my fate still has in store for me and any pain and suffering I have to endure as a result, it comforts me to know that every bit of it serves the wise higher purpose of teaching me the nature of suffering. Through our own suffering the characteristics of our Christ nature begin to stir from their slumber. At the sight of someone’s else’s, human and animal alike, we now have a good idea of what they are going through. And that arouses feelings of compassion and love for them, as well as for everyone else who is afflicted in some way and anyone who is less well off in life than we are. This is usually accompanied by a deep inner urge to somehow bring relief of some kind.

From Fool To Wise One – Part Twenty-One

Growing Up


The essence of what I want to tell you today is that
Little by little, every human spirit and soul has to
Grow up and wean itself.
From an embryo who draws its nourishment
From its mother’s blood,
We become an infant who drinks her milk.
But all along we are searchers of wisdom and truth,
Treasure-seekers and hunters of invisible gains.

Imagine how a conversation with an embryo would go.
It might start with something like:
‘The world outside your womb is vast and intricate.
There are wheat fields, mountain passes
And orchards in bloom.
At night you can see millions of galaxies
And in the Sun’s light maybe watch
Friends dancing at a wedding.’

If you asked the embryo: ‘Would you prefer
To stay where you are, cooped up in the dark,
With your eyes closed?’
At that stage of its development
The small earthly self to be would probably reply:
‘I only know what I am experiencing now.
When you talk of other worlds,
It sounds to me like hallucinations.’

From Rumi’s ‘Mathnawi’
1207-1273
Persian Muslim poet, jurist, theologian and Sufi mystic.
His writings are descriptions of everything in Heaven and Earth.
Adapted by Aquarius

Each time the door of the spirit world, our true home, closes behind us and we once more reborn into another lifetime on the Earth plane, during the embryo phase of our earthly sojourns the only thing about life we know is our present state. Of necessity this happens to every one of us the first few times around. And that’s the way young and experienced souls in our midst perceive themselves and their existence. The Divine spark in them is still slumbering for the simple reason that their time for its wakening has not yet come because their earthly selves have not yet sufficiently experienced life in physicality and learned about it.

The law of life is love and the essence of every human being is love, even though for a long time this may not show itself in their behaviour patterns. Nonetheless, from love we come and to love each one of us eventually returns. Times in earthly life at first serve the exploration of everything that is not love, for example hatred and greed, violence and crime, sickness and death. During this phase of our development we are interested in anything that creates suffering for those around us and our world. Even though we are unaware of what is happening to us, in the fullness of time every bit of it returns to us and we find ourselves at the receiving end. Through these happenings our own soul and that of humankind, our whole world and the whole of Creation become familiar with these characteristics. Because they belong to humankind’s lower and unevolved nature, in due course they have to be worked on and overcome.

This is a process in which we, individually and collectively, are constantly growing in wisdom and understanding. Through this our consciousness and that of our race slowly expands and everybody in the end reaches the point of rediscovering who we are, where we have come from and where we are going to. Quite naturally we then find it far more enjoyable to pursue that which is positive and wholesome, good, right and beautiful. We feel drawn to them because that’s the only way we can be true to our real nature. This heralds that, at least for us, a vast evolutionary circle has closed, another chapter of our development is complete and we are ready for moving on to lessons of a higher nature. That applies as much to each one of us individually as it does collectively to our whole race and world.

For aspiring healers and lightbringers it is essential to keep their earthly senses pure and senses. This assists with the opening of their five inner gateways to the spiritual forces of life that are invisible to earthly eyes, but can be perceived through the senses of our physical body. Wise ones seek to conduct their lives in a temperate and well balanced way and endeavour to avoid all kinds of extremes. Striving for harmony in whatever they do increases their awareness of God’s presence in everything. Tasting God in the goodness of the food they eat and by smelling the scent of something they inhale the essence of God, and that again increases their awareness of the God life.

Perceiving God in everything, wise ones enjoy listening how God speaks with them in many different kinds of voices. The sound of human voices and of birdsong as well as music in general helps their awareness of God’s love and beauty to grow and expand. Unpleasant voices that are loud and shrill belong to unevolved souls, while well modulated and controlled ones tell wise ones that they are dealing with older and more advanced souls. All these things are part of the gateways that lead us earthlings ever more deeply into the conscious awareness of God’s presence in all that is.

I Believe


I believe for every drop of rain that falls,
A flower grows.
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows.
I believe for every soul that goes astray
An Angel comes to show the way.
I believe. I believe.

I believe that above each storm
Even the smallest prayer is heard
And someone in the great ‘out there’
Is listening to every word.
Each time I hear a newborn baby cry,
Or touch a leaf and see a star,
I know why I believe.

I don’t just believe, I know that
The darkest hour is just before the dawn.
I know this is true because
The world around me acts like
A mirror of what’s happening on the
Inner levels, the spiritual background,
Of our earthly existence.
I know that regardless of the many dark things
That are still taking place in many places,
A new day is dawning for each one of us
And also our whole world.

My consciousness has changed gear from
The blind belief of the Piscean Age
To the state of knowing of the Aquarian Age.
There’s a world of difference between the two.
Now my faith and trust in the goodness of life
That’s been given to us is something
That cannot be taken away of destroyed
By anyone or anything any more.
Hallelujah!

I Believe In Miracles


I believe in thoughts to share and feelings to discuss.
I believe in miracles, I believe in us.

I believe in sunny days, the cleansing touch of rain,
In special moments that form an endless chain.

I believe in quiet nights and brilliant starlit skies,
In tender sights that stir all loving hearts.

I believe in positives and truths that form a plus,
In loving and sharing. I believe in us.

I believe in and trust God’s great plan of life and
A positive and beneficial outcome of all things.
I believe that goodness is in all human souls
And that it eventually shows,
No matter how long this may take in some.
I believe that we and all life have always rested safely in
The Great Father/Mother’s loving hands.
I believe that all is well and sure to come right in the end,
For each and every one of us and our world.

I believe in the ever increasing healing power
Of the love that is created when
The human and Divine aspects of life join forces.
I believe that this is bringing about
The greatest healing miracle ever,
Which is taking place right here and now,
For us and everything that shares Earth life with us.

I believe, nay, I know, feel and trust,
With all my heart and soul,
That this is the truth.

The Battle Hymn Of The Republic


Mine eyes have seen the glory
Of the coming of the Lord.
He is trampling out the vintage
Where the grapes of wrath are stored.
He has loosed the fateful lightening
Of His terrible swift sword.
His truth is marching on.

I have seen him in the watch-fires
Of a hundred circling camps.
They have built him an altar
In the evening dews and damps.
I have read his righteous sentence
By dim and flaring lamps.
His day is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah.
Glory, glory, hallelujah.
Glory, glory, hallelujah.
His truth is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel
Writ in burnished rows of steel.
As ye deal with my contemptors,
So with you my grace shall deal.
Let the hero, born of woman,
Crush the serpent with his heel,
Since my God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet
That shall never call retreat.
He is sifting out the hearts of men
Before His judgment-seat.
Oh, be swift, my soul.
To answer him be jubilant, my feet.
Our God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah.
Glory, glory, hallelujah.
Glory, glory, hallelujah.
His truth is marching on.
His truth is marching on.

Julia Ward

On April 3, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Baptist minister and political activist, rose to speak in support of striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. ‘I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land,’ King announced. ‘And I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man.’ And then he closed in his lyrical voice: ‘Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.’ The next day he lay dying on the second floor of the Lorraine Motel, struck in the cheek by an assassin’s bullet.

The last line that King ever spoke in public came from the song ‘The Battle Hymn of the Republic,’ written by Julia Ward Howe in 1861. It was a fitting finale to the life of a great American because the story of the ‘Battle Hymn’ is the story of the United States. The song, now approaching its 150th anniversary, is a hallowed treasure and a second national anthem. The country has turned to it repeatedly in national crises. The ‘Battle Hymn’ has inspired suffragists and labour organisers, civil rights leaders and novelists, for example John Steinbeck in ‘The Grapes of Wrath’.

Since time immemorial the snake has been a symbol of the wisdom and truth of the Great Mother of all life. No matter how hard the religions of our world, during the times of the patriarchy with its all-male Divinity, tried to crush under the Mother’s love, kindness and wisdom under its boots, it cannot be suppressed forever. The truth will always be out in the end and with the arrival of the Age of Aquarius the time is right for its emergence.

To me, this song is the epitome of a battle hymn for our whole world and Martin’s vision of the Promised Land is not merely for Christians but all humankind. And although this song is not at all my kind of music, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s interpretation moves me to tears, each time I listen to it. To my mind it’s one of the finest pieces of choral music altogether. What appeals to me most about it that yes, God’s truth does keep marching on. Irrespective of how hard the religions of our world have always tried to keep us away from it and no doubt will continue to do for a while, it is now with us for all to see whose perception of life has sufficiently opened.

From Fool To Wise One – Part Twenty-Five

I Can See Clearly Now


For far too long the fog and mists of false beliefs, prejudices and superstitions about God’s true nature and our own, and of the purpose and meaning of our earthly existence have been clouding humankind’s vision and understanding. The spiritual wisdom and knowledge that is flowing ever more powerfully directly from the Highest levels of life into the consciousness of our world are clearing them away. And an ever more beautiful picture emerges of the bright and sunny future that indeed lies ahead of us and our world. That’s why there is every reason for our hearts and souls to rejoice and sing:

I can see clearly now, the rain has gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone.
All of the bad feelings have disappeared.
Here is the rainbow I’ve been praying for.
It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-shiny day.

Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies.
Look straight ahead, nothing but blue.
I can see clearly now, the rain has gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.
It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-shiny day.

Johnny Nash
