Prayer For Today

Great Spirit, Mother/Father of all life,
Help me find the lonely ones
Among those I meet today.
Let me say the right words to take
Their loneliness away.
Too many walk with aching hearts
Along life’s highway.

Too many walk with breaking hearts,
Which no-one understands.
To them, the roadway’s rough and steep,
As it crosses their barren lands.
Help me lighten their weary eyes
And strengthen their hearts and hands.

Help me to brighten gloomy eyes
And let my own sorrows be
A reminder of someone else’s grief,
Of those who walk this road with me.
And when my words and hands fail,
Let me go with them in silent sympathy.

Deep peace of the gentle Lake to you.
Deep peace of the flowing Air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet Earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining Stars to you.

The Aquarian Revelations – Part Fifteen

The Beginning Of Wisdom


As long ago as in the days of the Old Testament, the Bible told us in Proverbs 1:7 ‘The reverence of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; but fools despise knowledge and instruction.’ If one replaces the word Lord with ‘law’, a different picture emerges straight away. The St. James Bible translated this into ‘The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom’. What life requires from us, however, is that we should respect and revere, to use the word of the Lamsa Bible translation, the Universal laws and conduct our lives in accordance with them, i.e. with right thoughts, words and action.

As God and the Angels told us through the Buddha legend, this manner of living alone can eventually bring us the much yearned for freedom from unhappy events. They are the harvest of the seeds we sowed, in our ignorance of these things, carelessly and thoughtlessly earlier in this lifetime or previous ones, sometimes many lifetimes ago. That’s how the Universal law of cause and effect or Karma returns the fruits of our efforts of times gone by. More about this theme in the next chapter.

The same as we are the creators of our own unfortunate circumstances, it is also possible to influence the flow of our destiny in positive ways. This is done through taking responsibility for ourselves and consciously changing our character into a better and more agreeable one. The knowledge of such things provides us with real power. It is the instrument the Universe wishes to place into every human being’s hands, so that we can free ourselves from the karmic chains and shackles of the past and stop creating new ones. When the last one of our karmic debts has been paid and redeemed, there will be no need for further earthly lifetimes. Our spirit/soul will then be allowed to move on and we shall continue our studies on the higher and eventually highest levels of life.

For thousands of years our Creator has suffered from an appallingly poor press. Take for example Deuteronomy, one of the most ancient books of the Old Testament of the Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, in the order of their appearance. Deuteronomy in ‘The Song of Moses’ 32: 35 tells us: ‘To me belongs vengeance and I will recompense them at the time when their foot shall slip, for the day of their destruction is at hand and the misfortune that shall come upon them makes haste.’

Such teachings presented our world with a highly negative, jaundiced and unfair image of our Creator. Ah, but wait a moment. Just exchange the word Lord for Law, namely the law of Karma. When you have found a better understanding of this law, in the next chapter, I guarantee you that for you the perception of our Creator will change into one of utmost justice and kindness, goodness and love. Even though the legend of the Master Jesus tried to convince us that our God is love, the story has little credibility for as long as Christianity pretends that every word of it is quite literally true. One of its hymns tells us:

‘Listen to Me, My people;
Give ear to Me, My nation.
A law will go forth from Me
And My justice for a light, to the people.

‘Ignorance is darkness and knowledge is light.
In the course of many earthly lifetimes,
The perfect justice of My Universal laws,
Takes every human being from one extreme of
This state to the other.
That’s how My law of Karma in the end brings
Light, i.e. knowledge and understanding
Of who and what I truly am and who and what you are.
That is the light that eventually wakes up in everybody
And you can see for yourself that
All of you are My people.’

John Foley
Edited by Aquarius

No spiritual progress is possible unless someone explains what kind of law the song is speaking about and how it affects Christian listeners and their lives. Sticking one’s heads into the sand ostrich fashion and denying the existence of the Universal laws does not make them go away. Viewed from our present perspective, it is not difficult to see that many of the false beliefs that still exist in our world once were necessary but that the time has come for shedding them, one after the other.

For example, the belief that earthly life is a one-off thing has been with us for thousands of years. It has been an essential part of the curriculum of the earthly school of life, provided – like everything that exists in our world – for us by the wisdom and love of God and the Angels. If we had known all along that there is a world of spirit, to which we return at the end of every lifetime for rest and recuperation and to find peace and healing, each time the going got too rough for us on the physical plane, the temptation to opt out would have been impossible to resist for tired and wounded earthly selves.

Yet, without being ignorant of these things, we and our world would not have been able to make anything like the spiritual growth that was achieved by us and our world, on the individual and collective level. Therefore, let’s not begrudge this part of our development, but give thanks for the boundless wisdom and love of the Great Father/Mother and their Angels who have always provided us with lessons that were and to this day still are just right for us. Rejoice that this sad chapter in the history of our world is definitely closing now.

Every part of my jottings is an attempt at finding a better understanding of the spiritual background of our earthly existence and the processes that rule all life, including ours. It is possible to get to know our Creator through this and I hope that it is going to provide you, dear readers, with your own perception of the Great Father/Mother’s loving care and attention, and that for each and every one of us. Before God we are all the same and from the lowest to the highest we are equally loved and cared for. The more one finds out, the more one realises that the bad press of the past was never justified. It then is the most natural thing in the whole wide world to kneel in worship and adoration before the Highest.

The Aquarian Revelations – Part Sixteen

The Positive Aspects Of Karma


Each one of us is a spark of the Great Light of the Universal Christ. The same powers and characteristics that are in God are also in us. We are chips off the old block, so to speak. The law of life is love and its first sub-law is the law of cause and effect or Karma. Every action causes a reaction and in somewhat strengthened form returns to its sender in due course. This means that nothing and nobody in the whole of Creation can ever be truly lost. If that is not a clear indication of the Creator’s loving care for the whole of Its creation, please tell me what is.

As co-creators with the Highest, every one of our thoughts, words and actions is a cause and whatever happens to us is the effect of something for which we set the wheels in motion earlier in this lifetime or previous ones. Life itself is the teacher in the great school of our present existence. With the help of the law of Karma the consciousness of every human being is constantly expanding through learning from its own experiences.

In spite of the fact that the law of Karma is not part of the Christian teachings, St. Matthew 7:12 tells us: ‘Whatever you wish people to do for you, do likewise also for them, for this is the law and the prophets.’ A clear reference to the Universal law of cause and effect or Karma, which ensures that whatever someone sends into the Universe anywhere eventually returns to its sender. But again no explanation of what kind of a law is meant here and which of the prophets.

There probably is more talk in our world of the law of Karma at present than there has ever been before, but for my liking there is altogether too much focus on its negative aspect. Considering that the law has been designed to create opportunities for learning and growing, as well as redeeming ourselves and paying our spiritual debts, in my view, its positive side outweighs the negative one by far, because without fulfilling these requirements we would never be allowed to move on to higher and highest lessons. They are definitely in store for each one of us, but only after we have meticulously attended to our karmic duties, fulfilled our obligations to all involved and through this balanced the ledgers of our spiritual bank book.

The following is an extract from ‘The Universal Christ Now Speaks To Us And Our World’ that explains better than anything else the infinite love and thoughtfulness that goes into the whole of God’s Creation:

‘One of the most important things you need to become aware of in your present state of existence is that all life is ruled by Universal laws, My laws, in particular the law of Karma. The wise ones among you, who have already woken up to their true nature, pay particular attention to it. Before I ever brought any part of the created world into being, a loving thought from My heart provided for all My creatures and creations through this law. In simplest terms, it decrees that everything has to return to its source. It ensures that every one of you will eventually be able to return to the true state of your being and to come home into your real nature, which is love. My will has decreed that this should only be possible after each spirit has been ensouled and its memory bank, which is the soul, contains so much learning that its consciousness has sufficiently matured and expanded. You are in your present existence so that you may constantly grow in wisdom and understanding and that you can only do by living through every single one of the experiences that may ever come your way.

‘My justice is perfect and the life I give to you and all others creatures is perfectly balanced. You will be able grasp this better when you come to terms with the workings of My law, as it reveals itself to you in the course of many lifetimes. I am the one who, through this law, makes sure that everything returns to its source and that everything in the whole of Creation balances. The knowledge of this shall be My light for My people, when the right moment has come for them. Through the teachers I have sent to you and your world from time to time, I have always given you exactly the right amount of spiritual knowledge that your individual and collection consciousness could digest. Thus My wisdom has slowly flowed into you over the ages, just about enough for you to cope with at any given time.

‘Such knowledge is the light that in the fullness of time guides each one of the tired wanderers, their spirit and soul, back home into the full awareness of their true nature. The law of Karma is part of My law of life and that is love. I am love and so are you; from love you have come and to love you are now returning. My Covenant with you, My earthly children, from the very beginning, long before your sojourns onto the Earth plane began, decreed that every soul will eventually be safely guided back home into the oneness with Me. That none gets lost or left behind, I have appointed Angels and Masters, guides and helpers who tenderly watch over every step that each child of Mine shall ever do, in all worlds and all levels of existence it will eventually have to explore and learn about.

‘As you, My children of the Earth, descended ever deeper into matter, each one of you over many lifetimes built your own prison of eventually total ignorance of your true nature. Yet, from time to time I sent you teachers who brought you, bit by bit, more of the light of My eternal wisdom. With the help of the light they conveyed to you, you slowly started to release yourself and each other from the darkness of your self-made earthly dungeons. No matter how long this may take for any individual soul, each one in the end is safely guided back into the light of the full knowledge of your true being. From Me you have come, to Me you are returning; My law of Karma sees to it. And when you have learnt to love again, when your only motive and desire has become to love and serve, to give of yourself and share with all that is in your world – the same as I am doing – you will know that you have come home.’

Deep Peace

Deep peace of the open prairie and the wind-swept sky,
The flowing rivers, quiet valleys and noble trees,
Standing stalwart and true on the mountain side,
Steady through the winds of life.

Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
By whatever name anyone may call You,
You are always there.
May Your peace dwell within each one of us,
To take us back into the conscious awareness
Of our eternal oneness with You.
Provide us with the courage and strength
To overcome everything that is ugly and evil in our world
And transmute it into something beautiful and good.

Peace In Our World

Where there is righteousness in the heart,
There is beauty in the character.
Where there is beauty in the character,
There is harmony in the home.
Where there is harmony in the home,
There is order in the nation,
And when spiritual order has come to all nations,
There will be peace in our world.

My Astrology

The astrology I practise has nothing to do with horoscopes and fortune telling. It’s applied psychology and that, to my mind, is the best instrument for not only getting to know ourselves and especially our inner motivations but also the people around us and what motivates them. Astrology is helping me to be more tolerant of and patient with them. And that is because unless someone is aware of what’s operating within them and the lessons of the predestined pathway they are walking, the same as everybody else, they are what is known as ‘ruled by the Stars’. To find out more about this, please follow the relevant link at the end of this chapter.

Like all truly great ideas, astrology’s principles are very simple. Everything is wheels within wheels and cycles within cycles constantly repeating themselves. In my view there is no better instrument than the Divine science for getting to know our true self and loving it, and doing the same for the people who are accompanying our pathway through life. As for my taste too much gobble-de-gook surrounds this subject, from the beginning of my writings I have aimed at demystifying it. Besides, instead of feeding people by catching one fish for them, I believe in showing them where they can find and land the tastiest morsels for themselves.

I believe that astrology’s extraordinary beauty and usefulness as well as its basic simplicity can only reveal itself when one strips away all confusing non-essentials elements. As soon as this has been done, the subject transforms itself from something that is best avoided, because for ordinary mortals without specialist knowledge it is far too complicated, something mysterious which some find downright scary. When astrology is placed in the right hands it quickly reveals itself as something to be enjoyed, relished and treasured as the precious gift to humankind which in truth it always has been. Knowing that simplicity is the greatest thing the Universe can bestow upon any of its children of the Earth, I always keep things as simple as possible and use language that hopefully can be followed easily by anyone.

In my view the best approach to astrology is the D.I.Y. one. All my writings are dedicated to doing my share of dispersing the prejudices against astrology that to this day exist in our world. By showing how the Divine science can be used to find a better understanding not only of ourselves, each other and our world, but also of God and the processes of Creation and life, I would like to assist people to overcome their fear of this truly amazing subject. As mentioned earlier, the kind of astrology I practise has nothing to do with fortunetelling. It is applied psychology and an instrument for getting to know ourselves, weaknesses and strengths alike, and for finding out about our innermost motivations and highest potentialities.

Should you be interested in a spot of fortunetelling only, forget about the D.I.Y. method. You would be wasting your time and be better off by far if you gazed into a crystal ball or some tealeaves, to see what might come to you. You could be lucky and will never know unless you try. But if you wish to become more familiar with yourself and your predestined pathway through life, you have come to the right place. You are sure to find what you are looking for with my preferred method.

My advice for anyone who stands with trepidation before the vastness of astrology is: do not be discouraged. Not everybody is destined to become a professional astrologer. For many it is quite sufficient to learn more about the Sun signs and what they can disclose about their own and everyone else’s predestined pathway and destiny. My own life has taught me how, through a better appreciation of one’s own and other people’s little foibles and peccadilloes, one imperceptibly and almost automatically grows into a kinder and more loving and tolerant person. Astrology has helped me in so many ways, but especially with this and I am convinced that it can do the same for you. If that sounds interesting, please follow the link below.

Peace Prayer

In the cold of an over-materialistic world,
Where many are feeling lost and lonely
I wish you warmth and joy from the knowledge that
These are the days of miracles and wonders,
When ever more of us are once more
Becoming aware of their true nature
And the reason for their being here.

I wish you courage and strength
To heal your own pain and that of others.
May it grow from a steadily increasing awareness that
The love and wisdom aspect of our Creator,
The Great Mother of all life,
Is manifesting herself everywhere in our world.

I wish you a sense of humour and the gift of smiling,
To help you overcome all your fears,
So you can show others how to do the same for themselves.
In the silence of your inner being may you
Be at one with the will and power of the Great Father.
The Father/Mother and their only born
Son/Daughter, the Christ Spirit,
Are as much part of us as we are part of them.
May their highest qualities reveal themselves
In our world through you and your life.

I wish for inner and outer peace in our world.
May it flow from the heart-mind of the Divine Trinity
Into the farthest, remotest corners of our world,
To bless and heal all its lifeforms.
And may the Mother’s wisdom and truth enter
Into every human heart and soul,
As that’s the only place where truth is known.

I wish that the creative fire
Of the ideas from the heartmind of God,
Lighten and warm everybody’s days,
So that Its dreams and visions can come true,
Through us and our world, and all worlds.
I wish for the renewal of hope, faith and trust in our world,
To assist every one of us with ascending the heights of
The spiritual mountain of Divine compassion.
I wish for God’s love to flow into every heart and soul,
So that we may all walk together hand in hand,
As one big family, peacefully and forever united.

Although this is still a dream,
I know in my heart of hearts
That one day it can and will come true,
Through all human souls, including you and me,
For when God’s love has at last come alive
In every human heart and soul,
Anything will be possible and achievable.

Above all I wish for the gift of understanding
To enter every human heart and with it
The ability to stop taking things literally,
When the true meaning of something is
Hidden behind its surface words.

Amen

A May Celebration In Honour Of

The Great Mother Of All Life


Bring flowers of the rarest,
Bring blossoms the fairest,
From garden and woodland
And hillside and dale.
Our full hearts are swelling,
Our glad voices telling
The praise of the loveliest flower of the vale.

Great Mother, we crown Thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
Great Mother, we crown Thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May,

Their Lady they name Thee,
Their Mistress proclaim Thee,
Oh, grant that Thy children on Earth be as true,
As long as the bowers
Are radiant with flowers,
As long as the azure shall keep its bright hue.

Great Mother, we crown Thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May,
Great Mother, we crown Thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May,

Sing gaily in chorus,
The bright Angels o’er us
Re-echo the strains we begin upon Earth.
Their harps are repeating
The notes of our greeting,
And You, Great Mother,
Are the cause of our mirth.

This hymn is sung during the ‘May Crowning’ of a statue of Mary in May. Mary is one of the many symbolisms for the Great Mother of all life.

At the end of April the Sun moves into earthy and sensuous Taurus. This is a time that presents us and our world with a dramatic change of tempo. After the breakneck speed and impatience of Mars in fiery Aries, Venus in earthy Taurus enters the main stage. In this sign the planet finds some of its finest feminine expressions and brings to souls born into it, as well as everybody else at this time of the year, a wonderful sense of enjoyment and appreciation of the good things in life. Gracefully and with a deliberately measured pace, Earth presents herself as a beautiful young bride. Bedecked with a profusion of flowers, blossoms and new greenery as far as the eye can see, she reveals to us the freshness of as yet unspoilt youth.

Sun in Aries represents the renewed betrothal of Mother Earth and Father Sun. But when the Sun moves into Taurus they are celebrating their wedding feast. The Universe invites all of us to take time out and enjoy with all our senses one of the greatest Cosmic events, of which the betrothal, the wedding feast with its renewal of all life on the Earth plane are outer physical manifestations of what’s happening on the inner levels of life.

When it’s springtime in the Northern hemisphere and all of nature is stirring after its winter rest, spring blossoms appear everywhere in breathtaking abundance and beauty. Admiring them, let us remind ourselves from time to time of the process of spiritual growth and harmony that is constantly at work behind any manifestation in the world around us. All children of the Universal Life Force, who are aware of this, have their work cut out for themselves, not merely on the physical plane but by adding their voices to the Angelic choirs of praise and thanksgiving that forms an essential part of the great orchestra of life.

Watching Mother Nature newly unfolding helps us to become more aware of and in tune with those who are beavering behind the outer form of life, to bring us fresh evidence of God’s life manifesting itself in our world. Whenever an opportunity for it arises, let us therefore get out and about and under he canopy of Heaven enjoy the shelter and shade of the mighty branches of the Universal Tree of Life, God, and absorb His/Her blessings of healing and peace for ourselves and all lifeforms, visible and invisible, that shares world with us.

A Beam Of Starlight

With the help of the Christ Star and the Angels surrounding it everybody can do something for the healing of Mother Earth. Let’s join hearts and hands with them in prayer and focus our attention on the Christ Star’s light, the highest star and the brightest light in the whole of Creation. Concentrate on it for a while and absorb it by bathing in its radiance, then send it to all those who are affected by wars, acts of terrorism and all other types of crime.

Affirm:

I hold all perpetrators of our world into the light of the Christ Star. May it penetrate every fibre of their being, until the Divine spark in their hearts stirs from its slumber and turns into a small still flame of love. I ask the Angels of Healing, Peace and Reconciliation to be with me and show me how to go about this, so that everything is done in keeping with the Great Father/Mother’s will and wishes.

I believe in the blessing and healing power of the Christ Star’s light and I trust the wisdom of God’s great plan.

Focussing on the Christ Star steadies our earthly minds and balances them, so that the light of the Heavenly Forces can shine through us into all dark aspects of earthly life. May all our thoughts be filled with positivity and light and may this continue until even the last shred of the darkness and despair of our world has been absorbed into the Christ Star’s light. Under the protection of Its radiance we form a circle and are together as one, so let’s join hearts and hands and pray as follows:

World Healing Prayer

Part One


All glory, honour and praise be to You,
Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life
And the Angels around Your throne.
We bless the Christ Spirit, Your only born Son/Daughter,
The golden light of the Heavens, who is
The Sun of all Suns, Star of all Stars and Light of all Lights.
Through Him/Her all lifeforms come into being
And are constantly nurtured and cared for.

You are the Source of all life,
Love and wisdom, knowledge and truth,
You are the Great Teacher of all worlds and beings,
Promised of old and who, through waking up
In ever more human hearts and souls,
Is at last in flesh appearing.
From within the core of everyone’s own being
Guide and protect us,
Show us the way of all things and
Fill us, our whole world and all other realms
With the blessing and healing power of
Your eternal wisdom and truth
That cannot be destroyed by anything.

Thank you for allowing us to know that
Every human being contains a tiny spark of You
That wakes from its slumber in our hearts,
When our time has come for aligning our energies
With those of the sacred Fire of Mother Earth and Father Sun,
And we once more become consciously aware
Of our oneness with You.

That’s how, in the fullness of time,
Each spark in its own right evolves into
A blazing flame of love and light, wisdom and truth.
Hand in hand with You and the Angels
This fire burns away
The dross of all darkness and fear
That exists in the consciousness of humankind.
Each flame is capable of absorbing ever more of
The dark clouds of ignorance, false beliefs and prejudices,
Its own and other people’s,
That to this day abound in us and our world.

May the radiance of Your Divine illumination
Flow ever more strongly into each one of us
And through us into our whole world.
May the dark destructive energies
Of war, terrorism and crime
Be absorbed into Your Light,
To be uplifted and transmuted into
Blessing, healing and harmonising energies for all life
That are flowing into the farthest and remotest corners of Creation,
In accordance with Your will and wishes.

In the name of love we ask these things from You
On behalf of Mother Earth and all her Kingdoms,
As well as every other part of Creation,
For You are the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory.
We worship You, we give You thanks,
We praise You for Your Glory.
And so it shall be, forever and evermore.

Amen

So long as this you fail to see:
That death precedes re-birth!
A gloomy guest you’ll always be,
Upon this darkling Earth.

The Higher Purpose Of Suffering

Part One


On the long evolutionary journey into the awareness of our true nature the small earthly self time and again gets deeply wounded. But eventually we reach the point when the wounds of all lifetimes demand to be looked at and healed and that is the beginning of our pathway as a healer and lightbringer during which we discover our own latent healing abilities and develop them. But this can only happen when our energies have aligned themselves to the Universal ones, so they can start to draw us into the intimate healing experience of being united with our Highest or God Self.

An illness of a particularly trying kind is frequently the entry into this phase of our development and if this happens to you, keep your calm and do not be unduly alarmed. Instead, turn towards God and the Angels to show you intuitively how to work your way through this difficult time and it can help your consciousness to expand through growing in spiritual wisdom and understanding. The only kind of spiritual knowledge that is truly worth having is that which has been tried and tested in our daily encounters. Through this it becomes our soul’s permanent property and that is the only thing we can take with us into Eternity. We are a spirit/soul who is experiencing life in a physical environment and any knowledge that comes our way is of only of value to us until it has been acted upon this way. Book knowledge, no matter how elevated it may be, on its own cannot move anyone forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life.

When this lesson has been attended to, our spiritual development seriously takes to its wings. The wisdom that comes our way can then be used to lift not only us but also those around us above our present level of existence into the higher and highest realities of the spirit world, our true home. The most helpful instrument on our explorations is the knowledge of the Universal laws, in particular that of Karma. So let’s take a closer look at it. The simplest way of describing is that every action in all worlds, not merely on the Earth, causes a re-action, and that everything has to return to its source. Therefore, everything you and I are sending out into life, the same as everybody else, unerringly finds its back to us. This is the Universe’s way of ensuring that:

• We all get what we deserve because of the seeds we have sown, either earlier in this lifetime or a previous one and that could have been a long, long time ago.

• Every spirit/soul has to take part in every lesson earthly life has to offer. Only from our own experiences can we learn how to differentiate between good and evil, light and darkness and so forth. That is why every human being sometimes finds itself at the giving end of the many different types of experiences and on other occasions at the receiving end.

• Everything in the whole of Creation eventually returns to its source. As a result, none of us can ever get truly lost in the vastness of space and time. When earthly life can teach us nothing more, we are released into the greater freedom of the spirit realm to continue our studies on the higher and eventually highest levels of life.

Ignorance of the Universal or God’s laws never protected anyone against having to live with the consequences of every one of their thoughts, words and actions. It takes a long time until we realise that we are personally responsible for them and that everything we did in previous lifetimes – good and bad alike – in the end caught up with us. And that’s what they will forever continue to do because of the law. This knowledge enables us to give of our best and take care to create good Karma only, so that eventually nothing but more of the same can return to us. We, i.e. each and every one of us, are the only ones who can free ourselves and also our world from having to continue to endure more seemingly endless rounds of suffering that were created by none other than each one of us, in previous lifetimes.

The negative attitudes towards each other are the Karmic chains that for many lifetimes have kept us in bondage with the earthly plane of life. Individually and collectively, they once had their place on humankind’s evolutionary journey. In days gone by they were right because through them we and our world learnt many important lessons. But now that the Age of Aquarius and the time of our race’s spiritual rebirth is with us, everybody has the right to find out about the wise higher purpose of their existence and for consciously re-connecting with the Source of our being and all life. Our true nature is love. From love we have come and to love we are returning. And when we consciously start bringing forth the qualities of our higher nature, becoming kinder and more loving, tolerant and giving is so natural that it takes no effort at all.

The Higher Purpose Of Suffering – Part Two

Action And Reaction


The law of life is love and the first law that branches out from it is the law of cause and effect or Karma, which decrees that every action causes a reaction that in due course returns to its sender in a strengthened form. The English mathematician, physicist, astronomer, theologian and author Isaac Newton 1642–1726/27 was one of the key figures in the scientific revolution of this time. He observed how the spiritual law of cause and effect manifests itself in our world. Through observing the world around him Newton discovered that every action causes a reaction. The idea of the law of gravity was also given through him. In my view it is part of the law of cause and effect because everything that originates in Mother Earth in the end has to return to her.

All life throughout the whole of Creation is subject to God’s Universal laws. Every one of us, each in their own sweet time, first has to discover and then come to terms with the effect they are having on us and everything that shares our world with us. The Great Father/Mother of all life is duality and everything that is in our Creator is also in us. And two main streams of thought or consciousness are constantly at work everywhere. In our world they manifest themselves as good and evil, yin and yang, masculine and feminine, darkness and light, black and white, positive and negative, and so forth.

Our spiritual development eventually reaches the point when we begin to sense that somehow we might be able to put an end to this sad state of affairs. If only we could find out about the cause of the suffering of our world, it might be possible to discover ways of making our contribution to it. The first step in this quest is asking God and the Angels whether they can help us and of course they are delighted about this request. We learn intuitively that, apart from love, thought is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation and that we are personally responsible for every one of our thoughts, words and actions. As sparks of the Divine, we are co-creators with God and each one is a powerful creative force that that needs to be taken care of by us, because they are constantly feeding directly into one of the two main streams.

Now that we are aware of the power of our thinking we realise that nothing could be more damaging to our spiritual development than hateful thoughts, words and actions and especially of scaremongering and panic-making. Because they increase the strength of that which is dark and evil in our world they should be avoided at all cost.

On the other hand, whenever through thoughts, words and actions we show our faith and trust in our Creator’s wisdom and love, the goodness of the life we have been given and of His/Her great plan of life, we are strengthening the stream good, right and beautiful people and things. The deeper we move into the Aquarian Age, the more urgent it becomes to stand by our convictions, walk our talk and make conscious decisions that put us in charge of our life and destiny. Up into the Heavens, the road of good and right, or down into hell, the things that are evil and wrong and people who so far do not yet know any better than acting that way, the choice is always ours. We have the right as well as the duty to choose and need to bear in mind that not making a decision is also a choice.

Hateful thoughts, words and actions that are aimed at someone who is involved in what we perceive as evil, with the intention of bringing them down and knocking them from their perch, does not do anything to remove their inner darkness. The darkness we are producing merely adds to what is surrounding them and the same happens to us. Strengthening the influence of the dark energies achieves the opposite of what we were hoping for. On the opposite end of the scale, every kind and loving thought we send to anyone who is presently taking part in the lessons of earthly life’s darkness encourages their higher nature to move that bit closer to the surface of their consciousness.

The energies we are sending them do not have the power of interfering with the lessons someone is presently taking part in and with the redemption of their karmic debts. Nothing in the whole of Creation can do this because God and the Angels are in charge of these things. But love is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation and wherever loving thoughts are sent they can and do absorb some of the darkness that surrounds the recipient and through this reduce that of our whole world. Ignorance is darkness and knowing is light. The darkness of our world is the ignorance of the crude unevolved state of humankind’s nature, which is but a passing phase. Love, however, is the light that motivates us ever more strongly the more highly evolved we become. The light of love is eternal and will never fade away, it merely increases and reaching the state of full enlightenment is the birthright of every human spirit/soul.

But let’s return to effect of hateful thoughts for a moment. Sending them to anyone could spiritually not be more short-sighted. Two wrongs never did make one right and that is most certainly the case here. The one who, in your view, is doing wrong and you, because you don’t understand what’s at stake, when you are tempted to send them thoughts of loathing you are in danger of seriously hampering the development of your spiritual nature. You could kick yourself for ever having done so when you later realise that we are responsible for every one of our thoughts, words and actions, and that in the fullness of time the perfect justice of the Universal laws returns all of them to us. Furthermore, the thoughts we send join others of a similar nature in the good or evil stream. This increases the strength of the thought as well as the stream.

The law of Karma ensures that, if we persecute someone in this lifetime, we are going to be persecuted by someone in a future one, just as soon as we have evolved sufficiently and are strong enough to cope with such a situation. We then draw unpleasant people into our life whose only intention seems to be making our life a misery. Other unpleasant and traumatic events could also be hitting us, only seemingly out of the blue. We have no idea where they might be coming from and why such things should be happening to us, out of all people. Aren’t we are good, upright and law abiding citizens who have deserved something better? Yes, in this lifetime but what might we have been up to in previous ones? Alas, there is no way of knowing. There is just one thing we can rely upon and that is that the Universal justice is fair, so fair that it’s hard to imagine in our present state.

Just imagine, those unpleasant things could easily have been avoided, if only we had known earlier that hateful thoughts, words and actions are just about the worst thing anyone can do to themselves. Every single one is an action that causes a reaction of the same kind. When it arrives at our doorstep, it will not come as some kind of punishment but merely as a reaction to our action and at the same time teaching us an invaluable lesson about the nature of suffering.

Healing Prayer For Us And Our World

Beloved Father/Mother of all life,
I am calling on You today to ask for healing
For myself and my world.
Your Divine wisdom and power brought us all into being.
You sustain and support us every moment of every day.
Every breath I take, every morning I wake,
Every moment of every hour,
I am in You and You are in me
And I rejoice that it shall be so in all Eternity.

Please fill my whole being with the blessing and healing power
Of Your infinite wisdom and love.
And with the power of Your Divine thoughts,
Which once brought me into this life,
Help me to re-generate and heal my whole being.
I surrender my whole being into your loving hands
And pray that Your will shall be mine.
May Your words of healing and peace flow through me,
So I can do my share of
Blessing and healing, saving and redeeming myself
And everything that is in this life with me.

Please guide me and show me ways of
Casting out the things that are no longer of any use to me.
Mending that which is broken in me and my life.
Regenerating and renewing every cell and atom
Of my whole being and of our whole world.
Open blocked arteries and veins.
Removing inflammations and cleanse my body of infections.
Healing damaged areas of my inner and outer being.
[Pour your heart out and tell the Highest forces everything that is troubling you.]

May the blessing and healing power of Your love
Fill my whole being,
So that every part of me that is presently not functioning
The right way becomes perfectly healthy
And my whole being begins to function
The way You intended it to be at the moment of my creation.

I wish to serve You and the life You have created for us
With all my heart and mind, body and spirit and soul,
For the rest of this lifetime and throughout Eternity.
But this I can only do when my whole being has been healed.
That’s why in the name of love,
Your own sacred name,
I ask it from You.

Amen

The Higher Purpose Of Suffering – Part Three

The Web Of Life


To paraphrase Chief Settle of the Duwamish tribe: ‘The Earth does not belong to humankind. We belong to the Earth. On the inner level of life everything is one and connected like the blood we all have in common. We did not weave the web of life and every one of us is merely a strand of it. Whatever we do to any part of the web we are doing to ourselves.’ Each one of us has their own web within the great one to attend to. We ourselves are the spiders who, one lifetime after another, are busily occupied with the weaving the web of their own life.

If it’s deception and lies we weave into it, that’s what we are going to find in common lifetimes, until our consciousness has been cleansed of this characteristic which is part of the lower unevolved part of our being. Those who are persecuting someone in this lifetime have to spend future ones being persecuted. If we are deceitful and corrupt in one of our lifetimes, that’s what we attract into our life in a future one, maybe several. Even though the weaving of the web is a highly complex and complicated activity, thanks to God’s Universal laws it runs with great precision and functions on such simple principles. That is not surprising when one considers that the great web of life, as well as every small one within it, was designed by God, the Great Architect of the whole of Creation, and the Angelic hierarchy His/Her helpers.

Life always has been and forever will be our teacher and every one of us can only learn through their own experiences. It is for this purpose that at first we find ourselves on the giving end of mental, spiritual and physical pain and anguish and later on the receiving end. As a result, when in the end we have learnt what it’s like to suffer, we do all we can to avoid hurting and harming anyone and anything. We do this because we are now aware that every human being, without exception, is a spark of the Divine who contains all the powers and characteristics that are in our Creator, the Great Father/Mother of all life.

From the lowest to the highest, everything is part of God and belongs to God. Every character trace of the Highest is present in each one of us. We all contain the greatest evil as well as the highest and noblest qualities and we are all on the same evolutionary pathway in the school of earthly life. The lessons of this institution take us from working our way through getting to know the meanest drives and urges of humankind’s unrestrained lower nature up to the highest aspect of our being. The end of our curriculum has been reached when the lower parts have been left behind for good and we have evolved into a Christed one in our own right.

The world around us acts like a mirror that reflects back to us what we are within. Sometimes there is someone around us who so annoys and irritates us that we feel like sending them the most poisonous and hateful thoughts we are capable of. Wise ones refuse to do this because they know that such feelings are but signals from their spirit/soul that what they are seeing in the other person are their own unpleasant character traces that are waiting to be attended to. This knowledge protects them against projecting their own nastiness onto those around them; they prefer to go within and own up to what is there.

Even though such things are invisible on the surface of our earthly nature, our inner self’s reactions reveals that they are there. It’s then up to us to forgive ourselves for having behaved like that in the past. Love for ourselves and forgiveness for what we must have been through in previous lifetimes releases the disturbing energies from our inner consciousness. Hand in hand with God and the Angels they can then be uplifted and transmuted into blessing and healing ones for our spirit/soul. When this part heals, our outer being also comes right. From then onwards, each time we observe in others the behaviour that once so irritated and annoyed us, it no longer bothers us. We may just think to ourselves: ‘Oh yes, I have been there. I am sending you a loving and understanding thought in the hope that it will help you to overcome this part of you, too.’ And that, dear Friends, is by no means the end of it, as you can see from the next chapter.

Praying for younger and less experienced spirit/souls, after all they are our siblings in the family of humankind, benefits their spiritual development and also our own. All prayers are heard, it’s just that sometimes the answer – for karmic reasons – has to be ‘no’. Ours being a reasonable and justified request, it will be responded to in keeping with the recipient’s present life lessons. Besides, whenever we are praying we are tuning into the frequencies of the Highest Forces of life. This increases the flow of light into our own aura as well as of the people for whom we are praying.

God and the Angels gave our world the knowledge of the law of Karma through the Buddha legend. The story of his life is about a prince by the name of Siddhartha Gautama, who later became known as Buddha, which means the enlightened or awakened one. He is believed to have lived in Nepal during the 6th to 4th century BC. The legend tells us that he meditated under a Banyan tree to find the answer to the question why there is so much suffering in our world. During this session it came to him that we ourselves are its cause and that it is in everybody’s own hands to take responsibility and do their share of changing this sad state of affairs.

In the Hindu religion the Boddhi tree represents the tree of life. The Buddha being as much a legendary figure as the Master Jesus, it is not surprising that the tales about the length of time he sat in meditation and also the type of tree where this took place vary considerably. The legend of the tree states that after having become enlightened, the Buddha stayed under it as well as others for seven more weeks of meditating and learning how to master his sensual nature. However, the accounts of these seven weeks do not always exactly match in some details such as timing. It seems likely to me that the seven weeks are more of an allegory, a symbolism for an indefinite length of time, similar to the forty days and nights Jesus is said to have spent in the desert.

Because Buddhism lacks the concept of God as its central point many do not think of it as a religion but a philosophy of life. Isn’t it astonishing how, without saying so in as many words, the Buddha legend was placing humankind – approx. 2,500 years ahead of its time – in the role of the Creator. Now that the age of truth is with us, it emerges with ever greater clarity that each and every one of us really is a young God in the making.

None of the religions of our world on its own ever made much sense. Yet, as soon as one treats each one like a piece of a giant jigsaw puzzle and joins them together, the picture of the religion of the new age emerges. Just like the Sun in the sky above us rises in the East and sets in the West, the Sun rays of God’s sacred wisdom and truth once rose in the ancient civilisations of the East. Through the Middle East, beginning with Egypt, they reached our Western world, where the light of God’s Sun is in the process of setting in great splendour and glory. I believe it could not have happened any other way.

Last but not least, here is a spot of wisdom from the Buddha legend: ‘Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it somewhere. Even if it is spoken and rumoured by many or you have found it written in the religious books of your world or you received it from your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. When you find, after careful observation and analysis, that something agrees with your reasoning and is conducive to your good and the benefit of all, accept it and conduct your life by it. In this way alone can it become your spiritual property that no-one will ever be able to take away from you.’

The Sun Beyond The Sun

O Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
The Universal Christ, Your only born Son/Daughter,
Is the Spiritual Sun above and beyond
The golden disc in the sky above us.
With the help of the Christ light You have brought
The whole of Creation into being,
And it constantly nurtures and sustains all lifeforms
That emerge from you.

We worship You, we give You thanks,
We praise You for the glory
Of the light and warmth of Your love.
Without them there would be no life,
On the Earth or elsewhere.
Reveal ever more of Your sacred truth to us,
To help us attend to our earthly duties
With happy, loving and carefree hearts,
Trusting Your great plan of life
And the goodness of our earthly existence.

Amen
