About Pain

A woman spoke: ‘Tell us of pain!’
And the Prophet replied:
‘Your pain is but the breaking of the shell
That encloses your deeper understanding.
You have to know pain,
Even as the outer shell of any fruit has to break,
So that the seed it contains can begin to grow and emerge into the Sun.

If you could but open your heart to the wonder
And the miracle that is your life and all life,
So that you could see that they are contained in everything.
If you could do that, your pain would not seem less wondrous
Than your joy.
You would then be able to accept the seasons of your heart,
Both their coming and their going,
In the same way as the inevitability of the seasons
That pass over your fields.
And you would watch yourself, with serenity and wonder
Through the winters of any grief,
Knowing with certainty that spring and resurrection
Will surely follow.
And that even in the event of the death of your physical body
You can be sure to be granted the gift of another lifetime on the Earth,
For as long as you require it.

With the onset of wisdom, you will begin to recognise
That much of your pain is self-chosen and that
It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you,
Your Highest or God Self,
Is trying to heal your small, sick and wounded earthly self.
Understanding this you will be able to trust
The Divine Wisdom of your very own Heavenly physician,
And drink Its remedy in silence and tranquillity.

You will then rest safely in the knowledge that
Its hand is only seemingly hard and heavy,
And that in truth the cup that now burns your lips
Is given to you by the tender hand of the Unseen,
And that this cup has been fashioned from the clay,
Which the Great White Spirit, the potter of all life,
Is moistening with Its own sacred Father/Mother tears.’

My Life’s Mission

Our world is bound in darkness,
Until we shine the light;
You with your own vision –
And I with my insight.

Doing my share of bringing new hope and restoring humankind’s faith and trust in the goodness of life has been my life’s mission ever since the process of intuitive writing began for me many years ago. In my view, reviving our confidence in God is possible through a renewed understanding of our Creator’s true nature and our own. The knowledge of this is now increasingly coming to us and our world. I would like to make it abundantly clear right here and now where I stand spiritually. It has never been or will be my intention to attack Christianity or any other religion of our world in my writings. The more you read of them the more you will be able to see for yourself that exactly the opposite is true.

From their earliest beginnings my work has been an attempt at building bridges and reconciling the beliefs of all the belief systems that have ever been known to humankind. I am doing this by looking for the esoteric truths that for a very long time had to remain hidden behind the surface words, for example of the Jesus legend. The true meaning of this tale is by now emerging with ever greater clarity and continues to penetrate ever more deeply the consciousness of our race. I have always trusted that this could be seen quite easily from the contents of my work, and that the words the living God within me, my Highest Self, writes through me, would have the power to speak for themselves and thus prove the honesty and integrity of my intentions. Unfortunately, this has not always been successful. That is why in June 2011, this chapter was added in the hope of making myself abundantly clear, so that future misunderstandings would be nipped in the bud.

Much as I enjoyed reading in my younger days, since writing took over the major part of my life, I do no longer seem to find much time for it and then I prefer a good novel to writings of a spiritual nature. Having been intensively involved with my own spiritual writings for many years and finding that the answers to all my questions really do lie within, I hardly ever feel drawn to reading material of that kind. Isn’t it astonishing how through a novel one can grow in understanding of human nature and our world? At the time of writing this, I was working my way through ‘The Name of the Rose’ by Umberto Eco, a murder investigation whose vehicle is a chronicle of the Middle Ages. It is not the kind of reading I would normally enjoy, but for some reason I felt drawn to it. I now know why: it was getting me in the mood and setting the scene for what is before you now.

If I had needed it, I could not have wished for a more poignant and painful reminder of what a sad catalogue the evolutionary pathway of our race has been than reading the book ‘The Name of the Rose’ by Umberto Eco. The Middle Ages were, as far as intrigues, corruption and general dishonesty, especially in matter concerned with the spirit, was concerned a world of free for all. Anything goes – the more cruel, the better. This epoch, like others before and after it, was ruled by power-seekers of the crassest kind who knew nothing but the submission of others in their pursuit of personal power and gains and material wealth. Under the protective cloak of religion, one class of people indiscriminately inflicted suffering and miseries upon the other. Equal shares were dished out by those in charge – under the pretext of serving God. Ahead of them all the pope, followed by the priesthood, the monks and then the public at large. A tale of big fleas have little fleas, if ever there was one.

What a world ours has been! You and I are likely to be old souls and there is a strong probability that we took part in these things, on the giving as well as the receiving end, and that in quite a few lifetimes. Doesn’t the mere thought of it send shudders down your spine? Our Creator’s wise and loving foresight provided us and our world with a veil of consciousness. It separates humankind’s small earthly self from our soul memories, as well as other lifeforms that for a very long time have to remain invisible to earthly eyes, for example the angelic realm. The atrocities and crimes we committed in other lifetimes, for the simple reason that they were – and for many in our midst to this day are – part of the curriculum of the University of Earth life. If we knew all the things we experienced and whose memories we carry within, for those with a degree of spiritual sensitivity it would be impossible to ever spend a happy and peaceful moment in this existence.

Past lifetime regression has become extremely popular – and highly lucrative – for many. Unnecessarily trying to peer behind the curtain or the veil, for no better reason than sheer curiosity, in my view, is a dangerous, unwise and undesirable pastime. There is no way of knowing what kind of a Pandora’s Box we could be opening for us. That’s why I prefer waiting until my Highest Self shows me that which I need to know. Following its advice, I deal with the issues involved in the appropriate manner, for example by praying for forgiveness and forgiving myself.

Those who are familiar with the other parts of my jottings that by now are available here know that I am a free spirit who – at least in this lifetime – has never been brainwashed and indoctrinated by any of the belief systems of our world. Yet, it so happened that towards the end of the year 201l, I was guided to ‘The Jesus Mysteries – Was the Original Jesus a Pagan God?’ and its follow-up ‘Jesus and the Lost Goddess – The Secret Teachings of the Original Christians’ by Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy. In them, to my astonishment, the authors confirmed just about all the insights I had gained into the background of the Bible and the Jesus legend, the way my inner guidance had taught me for a very long time.

Unlike me, Freke and Gandy, were devoted Christians at the onset of their quest for the truth behind the words of their Scriptures. The above mentioned books are an education that, in my view, should not be missed by anyone. By sharing their considerable gifts with us, the authors have presented our world and us with two serious scholarly and meticulously researched works of the highest calibre. My inner and Highest Self’s response to them tells me loud and clear that they are telling the truth. To me, they are eminently suited to present us with the truth, as it revealed itself to them as hidden behind many of the words of the Bible, especially the life story of the Master Jesus. It was a great joy to discover their work about six years after the creation of Rays of Wisdom and several decades since I first became aware of and felt drawn to looking for and writing down the truth behind the words of the sacred texts of the various religions of our world and Christianity in particular.

‘The Jesus Mysteries’ was first published in 1999. ‘Jesus and the Lost Goddess’ followed in 2001 – in the middle of Pluto’s transit through Sagittarius. As pointed out in the chapter ‘Pluto in Capricorn’, the Plutonian energies engage us and our world in the process of breaking down and then rebuilding the structures on which we all depend in more truthful and satisfying ways. The purging and cleansing effect of Pluto’s energies bring to the surface of our individual and collective consciousness that which once was hidden from public view and knowledge. Sagittarius is concerned with vast themes like the higher and highest education, religions and philosophies of our world, including the people who practise them, and the dissemination of their ideas through broadcasting and publishing. It is not surprising that a flurry of other publications of a similar nature to those of Freke and Gandy appeared during the time of Pluto’s transit through Sagittarius.

I read several of them and with each one my inner guidance told me that they were a load of nonsense. However, when it came to Freke and Gandy’s books, it nodded – so to speak – and told me that all of it made a great deal of sense. Each new chapter confirmed that they were indeed telling the truth. I fail to understand why Christians become so defensive towards finding out that the story of the Master’s life is a legend. The Universal Christ has been communicating with us through the words of the Jesus legend for such a long time. Knowing the truth behind the story, to me, is much more beautiful, uplifting and magnificent than the main character of a tale could ever be. After all, his authenticity has been doubted by many ever since its creation. Is that really so hard to recognise?

That reminds me of the lady, a born again Christian, who about fifteen years ago gave me a Bible for Christmas because she had read some of observations and insights into the truth behind the Bible. We met long before the idea for the name ‘The Random Jottings of a Stargazer’ came to me and there could have been any thought of publishing parts of my work on the World Wide Web. This lady told me she was praying that the truth about Jesus should be revealed to me. It seems that her prayers were answered, though in a markedly different manner from the one she had asked for.

Who would not rejoice at the thought that this, the possibly saddest chapter in the evolution of our race thus far, is closing and that the curtain that allows us occasional glimpses into the greater freedom of the Aquarian Age is lifting? Who would not be more than happy to make a very real contribution towards bringing the superior sovereignty of this new age about? What could be more beautiful and exhilarating for any human being than the expansion of our inner vision that grows from an ever deepening grasp of God’s true nature and our own? And why is it that so many Christians, to this day, want to deny themselves experiences like these? An open mind is the greatest gift our Creator can bestow upon any one of us. Those who are willing to open theirs and are sufficiently in touch with their inner guidance to be able to tell a truth from a lie, will have no difficulties partaking what is available here. Ah well, you can but lead a horse to the water, but only when the creature is ready, it will drink and that only too happily.

Mind you, since making my work available to a wider public, I have been fortunate enough to meet large numbers of open minded people. Many of them were and still are wise Christians who, eagerly welcoming the enlargement of their understanding and inner vision, seize every opportunity that comes their way for finding out more. Rays of Wisdom’s feedback section bears witness to this. By now, I have an ever growing circle of friends all over the world. They are my spiritual family with whom I share the new sections of the jottings that from time to time become available for sharing. This happens as and when the inspiration from my wise one within moves me to write some more, as it almost constantly does. Many thanks to each one of you for your loving support and words of encouragement, and for keeping the faith and spreading the word. Even the smallest effort is very much appreciated.

New releases are appearing regularly. They are announced by e-mail and if you would like to join my mailing list and the circle of my friends and spiritual family, you can find a link on the contact page for getting in touch with me. A response received a few days ago read: ‘I soooooo love your e-mails; don’t let anything stop you from sending them. They have brought such love and light to my life. Blessings.’ J.G. Thank you, dearest Friend, for as long as I am capable of doing so, I will continue to hold my insights down in ‘The Random Jottings of a Stargazer’, publish them on Rays of Wisdom and inform you about new sections and updates by e-mail.

Whenever there are interruptions in transmissions, please be patient. Rest assured they do not happen because of ‘writer’s block’, so I don’t know what to write about. The flow of ideas and insights never seems to stop. As soon as I open up a theme, they unfailingly begin to pour in profusely. Any breaks will be due to me being occupied with working my way through a particularly tough spot on my own healing journey of a thousand miles. So, please bear with me and I would be most grateful if you included me in your healing prayers, the same as you will forever be part of mine.

Let Me Today

Let me today do something that shall take
A little sadness from our world’s vast store,
And may I be so favoured as to make
Of joy’s too scanty sum a little more.

Let me not hurt by any selfish deed
Or thoughtless word, the heart of foe or friend.
Nor would I pass, unseeing, worthy need,
Or sin by silence when I should defend.

However meagre be my worldly wealth,
Let me give something that aids humankind.
A word of courage or a thought of health,
Dropped as I pass, for troubled hearts to find.

Let me tonight look back across the span
‘Twixt dawn and dark, and to my conscience say:
‘Because of some good act to beast or man
The world is better that I lived today.’

The Source Of My Inspiration

Part One


It took me a long time until I realised that my writings are inspired by God and the Angels as part of the celebrations for the return of the love and wisdom of the Great Mother of all life to our world. My jottings are my contribution towards the process of healing the conflicts of our world. In my view this can only come about through a better understanding of God’s true nature, our own and the high and holy ultimate purpose of our earthly existence. That’s what my work is all about. The spiritual knowledge you receive from me is of invariably of an intuitive and original nature, through which God and the Angels are communicating with you. I have no need for going into a trance or anything of that nature, I just write. The source of my inspiration is God and the Angels and they are telling me that most of the spiritual teachings of the past are outdated by now. They were valid when they were given because that was all humankind could understand in those days.

Increasing numbers of us are becoming ready for the Divine wisdom and truth that has been waiting for the Age of Aquarius, so that under the influence of its energies they can flow with ever more ease directly into the consciousness of those who are ready to receive it. My writings embrace and honour the teachings of every one of the many belief systems that our world has seen with the passing of time. Their aim has never been to wipe out any existing spiritual knowledge, but to add to it in order to advance of humankind’s evolutionary progress. Updating and refreshing some of the ancient themes with new insights is my contribution to the expansion of our race’s individual and collective consciousness.

I was not brought up on a steady diet of what any of the traditional sources have to say about various religious/spiritual themes. I never studied them in my present lifetime, though I probably did in others. Looking back from where I am now, the result of that must have been an essential part of my preparation for the job I had come to do this time round. I had not occupied myself with religious/spiritual matters for the simple reason that before the start of my jottings, I was too busy with ordinary things like running a home, bringing up children and later returning to full time work. My lack of knowledge of the religious/spiritual traditions of our world ensured that I had no preference for one of them and therefore could look at all of them without prejudice. And that enabled me to approach the existing material with an open mind.

Looking at it from where I am now, it is not hard to see why, when I first started holding my insights down in writing, it felt like some kind of floodgates were opening inside me. The inflow of ideas was so great and intense that, trying to keep up with it, the pace of writing had to be so fast that I would not have had time to study spiritual subjects in the traditional manner. Much later I found out that this is neither necessary nor desirable when one acts as a channel for the wisdom of the Highest. If anything, too much book knowledge and head activity can shut the heart-centre.

And that closes us off from the world of our feelings and therefore gets in the way of the intuitive process and stops us from developing into a clear and undisturbed communication channel. The heart-centre is the dwelling place of the Divine spark of our Christ nature. Even though at first this exists merely in seed form in everybody, our Highest Self has always accompanied us and tried to guide us through the small still voice of our conscience. As with the passing of time this aspect of our nature grows stronger, it communicates with us ever more clearly through the world of our feelings. At any given moment, the way we feel about something tells us whether it is right or wrong and what we hear or read is a truth or an untruth.

The teachings of every one of the old belief systems came into being just the same as my contributions to the pool of spiritual knowledge have been doing for more than twenty years. The only difference between the scribes of the days of yore and modern ones is their writing instrument. And that’s a fascinating story in its own right. If that sounds interesting, please follow the link at the end of this chapter.

The essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides: ‘In the fullness of time, we shall no longer learn from others or from books, but find the knowledge we are looking for within ourselves, for we are part of everything that ever has been and shall be.’ And that’s what has been happening to me for many years. The knowledge I am sharing is brought to you by the love and wisdom of the Great Mother and the Angels. The Mother is the feminine aspect of the Divine and the soul of the whole of Creation. She is the storehouse of the memories of everything that ever happened anywhere in the whole of Creation and the learning that was gained from it.

The human soul is the soft, sensitive and vulnerable aspect of our nature, women and men alike. Our soul is an integral part of the soul of our world as well as the Great soul, the Mother of all life. Through re-establishing our inner connection with God, the Great Father/Mother of all life, every human being is going to learn eventually how to tap into the Mother’s wisdom and truth. Through finding the right and truthful answers to their questions, ever more of us are releasing themselves from their bondage with earthly life and their numbers are steadily increasing.

As we know by now, on the inner level all life is one and there is no separation between anything. We are all connected with and responding to each other. That’s why when one of is hurt and wounded, everybody is and this is also true whenever someone is healing. Life in the whole of Creation is subject to the Universal laws and unfolds in keeping with God’s great plan, in which everything has its allocated place and happens at the predestined time. This also applies to our race’s earthly education and because during its early stages the meaning of God’s wisdom and truth cannot yet be grasped by earthly minds, throughout the ages the Angels in charge of us and our world have been presenting parts of it with the help various myths and legends.

Tales of this nature that have survived to this day are living proof that there is no point in storing spiritual knowledge in something that can be likened to waterproof containers and trying to be too precise in defining their contents. The best we can do as earthlings is to accept the good intentions of the Divine plan and rest safely in the knowledge that everything in the end will work out for the highest good and greatest joy of all, irrespective of the fact that God’s way of going about it are frequently hard for us to comprehend.

If I Can Help Somebody

If I can help somebody, as I pass along,
If I can cheer somebody, with a word or a song,
If I can show somebody when they’re travelling wrong,
Then my living shall not be in vain.

If I can do my duty, as a child of God ought,
If I can bring back beauty, to a world that is wrought,
If I can spread love’s message, the way the Angels taught,
Then my living shall not be in vain.

If I can help somebody, as I pass along,
Then my living shall not be in vain.
My being here will not have been for nothing,
If I can help somebody to understand that their life
Has meaning because it serves a wise higher purpose.
What a shame if the gift of their present lifetime
Were frittered away, for in that case they would
Have to return in another one for a repeat performance
Of their quest for understanding.

The Source Of My Inspiration – Part Two

The Freedom Of The Aquarian Age


Aquarius is the sign of revolution, transformation and transmutation. Its astrological symbol is the water bearer who holds a pot in his arms from which he seems to be pouring water. Because of this it is hardly surprising that to this day there is quite a bit of confusion about the nature of this sign. In spite of its symbol and contrary to popular beliefs, Aquarius is by no means one of the Water signs but an Air sign. The water that flows from the man’s vessel is not of the liquid kind known in earthly life. This is an allegory for the cleansing and purifying effect of fresh spiritual knowledge and wisdom that is constantly being poured from the highest levels of life into the earthly consciousness of humankind, to enable us and our world to move forward on the evolutionary spiral of life.

Aquarius is also the sign of truth and being taught by our inner teacher, the small still voice of our conscience who in truth is no less than the voice of God. About thirty years ago, the name Aquarius came to me intuitively and appeared to be the right one for my spiritual work because astrology is ruled by Aquarius and spiritual work by Sagittarius. At that time I had no idea that Ascendant is in Sagittarius and my Sun in the ninth house, the natural domain of this sign; that Aquarius is the voice of God that speaks to us intuitively, i.e. the in-tuition; and that this is the long promised new world teacher.

Aquarius is the sign in which themes like siblinghood, kinship and friendship among all peoples and all nations, and ultimately with all life are nurtured and developed. In Aquarius the highest hopes, dreams and aspirations for the whole of humankind can potentially find their fulfilment, on a personal as well as on the collective level. I hope I shall be forgiven for using the word siblinghood instead of brotherhood. For my liking the latter smacks too much of times gone by, the patriarchy and the suppression of the feminine. It goes against the grain when the true spirit of Aquarius is equal rights and opportunities for all. Fortunately, by now there is plenty of evidence in our world that this is slowly but surely establishing itself in our world.

The Age of Aquarius is thought to unfold from approx. 1900 AD – 4,100 AD. But for quite some time before its ‘official’ starting point our world was moving forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life in gigantic steps. Slowly but surely we and our world are being released into the freedom of the Aquarian Age. Meant by this is the freeing of our world, individually and collectively, from slavery and oppressions of all kinds and in particular religious/spiritual ones. Gargantuan efforts and upheavals were and still are necessary to complete the redemption process for those who have reached the end of their earthly education. If they play their cards right and when the tasks of their present lifetime have been attended to satisfactorily, they will be allowed to move on to continuing their studies on the higher levels of life.

The spiritual freedom of the Aquarian Age consists of following our hearts as well as our heads and believing what the new world teacher, who is none other than the inner guidance of the wise one or living God within – who dwells in every human heart, even though merely in seed form for a long time –, tells us which kind of spiritual knowledge is right for us now. The age of blind faith when we were forced by the religious leaders of our world to believe in and follow a story whose surface words, when taken literally, never did make any sense whatever. The religion of the new age is one for hearts and heads working together. Leo = the power of a loving heart and Aquarius = the head with the intelligence of reasoning and logic. Accept what you are reading here or anywhere else for that matter, only when both of yours are responding with: ‘Yes, this makes sense, it is true!’

The deeper we move into the new age, the more powerfully the Aquarian energies will be influencing us and everything that shares our world with us. So let’s take a closer look at them and see what will be available predominantly during the coming four thousand years or so, and then try to work out how we can make the best possible use of them. As a result of the Aquarian energies, the new age is bringing us a religion that is of the heart as well as the head, no longer of the head alone like the old belief systems. Astrologically the heart is the domain of the fixed Fire sign Leo, the Sun’s own sign. Aquarius and Leo are polar opposites in the zodiac. One is the sleeping partner of the other and even though on the outer level they are poles apart, on the inner level they are one.

Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are the Air signs. Lifetimes spent in them serve the development of our mental faculties and we are at our best when we find ourselves working with our heads. However, the energies of the Air signs on their own are detached and cold, logical and reasoning. What each one needs is the influence of one of the Fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius with their warm and impulsive energies. The human heart, when functioning at its best, is warm and loving. Alas, during our lifetimes in Leo during the early stages of our development we are only really interested in ourselves. But even then we are highly creative individuals who love to let their light shine.

During each lifetime spent in the fixed Air sign Aquarius, our interest in group activities and humanitarian pursuits awakens, we become less selfish and prefer doing work that benefits many. And when at last the energies of Leo and Aquarius join forces within us, our higher and lower nature fuse into one and the start working together for the good of all, the mind in our heart unfolds and our thoughts turn increasingly into loving ones. And that’s how it comes about that Aquarius and Leo with the passing of time turn into the perfect combination of energies for gradually grounding more and more of God’s sacred wisdom and truth in earthly life.

When Leo’s fiery nature is in danger of showing itself in the form of too much and misplaced enthusiasm, the Aquarian energies are cooling it down to a warm and agreeable temperature. In return Leo adds the warmth of its love to the coldness of Aquarius’ thinking power and the combined force of these energies makes the Divine Waterbearer’s knowledge pleasant and agreeable to us earthlings. Whenever someone is ready to serve as channels for God’s sacred wisdom and truth onto the Earth, that person’s earthly mind learns how to attune itself to the frequencies of the Angels and Masters on the highest level of life.

And this is how it comes to pass that the inner light of increasing numbers of individuals are shining ever more brightly in our world through their work for the good of the whole of our world. And that is only possible when the energies of Leo, the highly creative individual human being, join forces with Aquarius, the humanitarian who finds their rightful place in group activities and friendships with all.

Who Am I?

I am much more than a picture in a passport
Or qualifications and titles.
I am not the stories people tell about me
And I am not in the judgments of others.
I refuse to be placed in boxes
And can neither be numbered nor labelled.
I cannot be known by
Any knowledge of earthly human minds.

But who am I and who are you?
We are spirit and soul and on the inner level of life
We are one and you are part of me as much as I am part of you.
If you wish to meet the one we both truly are,
You need to look into your heart.
It knows how to recognise the true me and you,
And easily connects us with the vibration of love.

I am an experience and a feeling,
A wave and a vibration
That can come to you in a tear or a smile,
A flower, a tree or a butterfly,
But also the oceans of our world and the skies above them.
I am the wind that caresses your face and hair.
I am what I love within me,
As well as that of which I am afraid.
I am me, but even though
I am in anything and anyone
And any place where I want to be.

Do not tell me who I should be.
Do not mention my boundaries and limitations,
Or who – in your view – I could or should be.
All I ask of you is that you
Accept and love me the way I am
And allow me the freedom and space to be myself.
Whenever you wish to know me,
All you have to do is approach me
With a smile and a hug,
So I can recognise you.
Then let me take you to the place
And the experience where all is one,
For there alone we can find
The true ‘me’ and also the true ‘you’.

The Source Of My Inspiration – Part Three

Loving From The Heart


We are all in this life so that, with the passing of time, we acquire the gift of loving God’s way, i.e. with detachment, totally and unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. This kind of love is immensely wise. It knows when to give and withhold, depending on the lessons we earthly children of the Great Father/Mother need individually and collectively, at any given moment. It takes many lifetimes round the zodiac and the lessons of Leo and the fifth house, Leo’s natural domain, for the love nature of our earthly selves to rise to this level.

Because they tend to put the objects of their love onto a pedestal to worship and adore them, young and inexperienced souls in Leo are constantly falling in love and just as quickly out again. The fire of their heart dies a quick death when they discover that the other one is merely a human being with the same flaws and imperfections that they themselves have. What Leo doesn’t know at that stage is that the other one merely mirrors back to them. Unaware of projection and the purpose it serves, Leo cannot yet respond the right way. But through having to deal with the disappointments of the past, our ability to love wisely slowly grows. It needs bearing in mind that the zodiac with its twelve signs and houses is meant to show us that we all have everything within us. Nobody is just a Leo or an Aquarius or any other sign. And the more we evolve and mature spiritually, the more the energies in the signs in polar opposition within us learn how to work as one.

In the early stages of our earthly education during the lifetimes spent in Leo, our hallmarks are extreme selfishness and egotism. But when this part of our development nears its end, through the natural evolutionary process in which every form of life is taking part, our earthly self’s love has transformed itself into a love not just for the people around us but for the whole of humankind. We no longer worship and adore human beings, but the One who brought all of us into being, who nurtures and cares for us and will forever continue to provide for everyone’s needs.

For as long as our lower self still functions predominantly on the earthly level of its being, the desires of Air and Fire, head and heart, are following the impulses of polar opposition. As a result they are frequently at loggerheads with each other. Through our constant efforts at operating equally well on the on the outer and inner plane of life, they are learning to work together ever more peacefully and harmoniously. Aquarius represents the voice of God, which by the way I only found out recently. Leo rules the human heart, the place into which the creative ideas of the spiritual Sun above and beyond the Sun in the sky above us, are constantly flowing into us and from there our world.

And that’s how God’s wisdom and truth for quite some time have been finding their way ever more freely and powerfully into any heart whose transmission channels are open to receive them. This brings us the knowledge we need to release ourselves and our world into the religious/spiritual freedom of the Aquarian Age. For some time this kind of information was given through people like Grace Cooke, the spiritual medium used by the White Eagle group of spirit guides. But because our world is constantly moving forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life, for quite a while this has been changing into direct transmissions from the Highest levels of life. You can find out more about several of these things by following the relevant links at the end of this chapter.

From its beginnings my writings have been part of this new approach. They were never based on speculations, myths and legends, but are the truth. My jottings contain my truth which consists of the knowledge that is now flowing with ever increasing force from the source of our being directly into the individual and collective consciousness of our world. What a long time the truth had to wait until it could at last reveal itself to ever more of us earthlings directly through their intuition = the inner teacher. But that is nothing when one bears in mind that a human lifetime, even if we should live on this plane to one hundred, is but the twinkle of an eye in terms of Eternity.

To paraphrase the wisdom God and the Angels gave to our world through the Buddha legend: ‘Do not believe 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 German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, 1788-1860, added to this: ‘All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.’

Dare To Be Who You Truly Are

Learn to limit and content yourself
With the specific task of
Daring to be who you truly are:
A beloved child of the Great White Spirit,
Father/Mother of all life
And a young God in the making.
Show yourself worthy of it by
Resigning, with good grace,
Everything you no longer are.

Then go forward and give of your best,
Intuitively guided and protected by
The living God, the wise one within,
Trust the great plan of life,
Your place within it and
That it’s a good life that’s been given to you.
Unselfishly give of your best and use
Your gifts and talents that have
Taken many lifetimes to develop,
For the good of the whole.

The Source Of My Inspiration – Part Four

My Relationship With White Eagle


If you are familiar with my writings, you may have noticed that once in a while someone’s quote appears. This is done in the hope that the saying or teaching adds another slant and perspective, maybe a touch of additional enlightenment to the theme under discussion. Following my inner guidance in all things, I share with you, my dear readers, only that which is likely to be of benefit to you. Without this no-one’s words would be there, including mine.

Naturally, this also applies to extracts from White Eagle teachings. I have no idea what anyone else makes of the whole concept of White Eagle. To me and in connection with my writings, the name means no more than one of the many groups of guides, friends and helpers in the spirit world, our true home. None of my writings have ever been based on White Eagle teachings. Whenever I share the essence of one of them with you, they are enlargements and enhancements that provide more understanding.

To this day White Eagle teachings enter into my field of vision AFTER and not before I have written about something. In the beginning this was very uncanny and scary. Yet, I soon got used to it when my inner guidance reassured me that if messages arrive in this particular manner they are gifts from the Angels confirming that what I have written is true and right for sharing with others. Aware that nothing in our lives happens without a wise higher purpose, I settled down to gratefully accepting this much needed and appreciated support.

My connection with the White Eagle Lodge over the years has been a somewhat tenuous one. For about ten years I have been a subscribed member, but I have never visited any of the Lodge’s premises or taken part in their activities. I am happy that my small annual contribution supports the good work they are doing worldwide. In return I receive their bi-monthly magazine ‘Stella Polaris’, an excellent publication I most warmly recommend. For some months now I have also been receiving the Lodge’s e-mail ‘Monday Thought’, also recommended. An occasional e-mail Newsletter recently started to appear as well.

At the beginning of May 2016 someone drew my attention to a blog that contained some downright slanderous information about the White Eagle Lodge. I could not avoid asking myself: ‘What if it is true?’ This created on opportunity for examining the nature of my relationship with the White Eagle Lodge. It led me to the conclusion that all along it has been with the White Eagle group of guides rather than the Lodge.

To my delight the blog matter was soon cleared up. The Lodge’s investigations showed that it had been written by a mentally severely disturbed person, who is well known to them. I refuse to sit in judgement over anyone, including the White Eagle Lodge. And in the unlikely case that the information had been true, all it could have done for me would be to remind me of the fact that many of the people who gave the greatest gifts to our world were very unpleasant specimens. One of the most outstanding examples to my mind is Mozart. Yet, whatever kind of a man he was, I can honestly say that I am not interested in his personal life, his character and the struggles he had to fight with his lower nature – the same as we all do – whilst trying to come to terms with his unusual earthly existence.

The only thing that matters to me is of what Mozart left behind, the magnificent bequest he made to our world with his music. I feel that through it the Highest realms of life are communicating directly with those on the Earth plane in a language all of their own. It is the Universe’s language of the heart for the enjoyment of those Mozart left behind, so they could be entertained, comforted and healed by listening to the gift of his life’s work.

To my mind, Mozart’s music compares well with the unique and precious gift the Angels brought us through the White Eagle group of guides and their medium, Grace Cooke. She was the co-founder of the White Eagle Lodge together with her husband Ivan Cooke. The White Eagle teachings appeared during the darkest hours our planet had ever experienced. I believe that the two world wars were the Apocalypse of our world. And it was during these times of utter darkness and despair the White Eagle teachings began to bring new rays of light and hope. They did this in the wake of World War One as well as throughout and after World War Two.

What Grace’s descendants, by now in their second generation, will ever make of their inheritance depends on the Karma of the people involved and the life lessons they have come to take part in. But even if someone at the Lodge did something foolish enough to ruin and destroy its reputation, to me this could not diminish by one iota the value of the teachings that were given through Grace. Should anything detrimental ever happen at the Lodge, the following line from the Lord’s Prayer would come to mind: ‘And lead us not in to temptation, but deliver us from all evil.’ Evil invariably means the fulfilment of the desires of someone’s lower earthly nature.

Nothing can ever change the fact that Grace’s gift must have brought a great deal of comfort and reassurance to many. On both sides of the conflict there were millions whose loved ones had been forced to go to war to make the senseless sacrifice of laying down their lives on the altar of the lunacy of political power struggling. People were searching for some kind of evidence that their dear departed were not dead, but alive and well cared for in another world, another dimension of life. They were looking for evidence of our other world that for such a long time had to remain carefully hidden from public view and knowledge, while the war was raging on.

Behind the scenes of life the two world wars represented a huge clearing process of ancient Karma and the individual and collective cleansing of our world. With Grace’s help and the work of others who were involved in getting in touch with our other world, the veil between it and ours slowly but surely was beginning to lift and grow thinner. The Age of Aquarius was with us and with that the time had come that from the darkness and despair of the death, destruction and suffering the warmongers of our world were handing out, the light of new hope should arise and shine brightly. That’s why through the White Eagle group of guides the Angels allowed us glimpses that a fresh trust in life may well be justified because it is a good one after all, if only one approaches it from the right angle.

In my view, Grace’s legacy is just as precious and probably even more sublime than those of people like Mozart and Chopin, Beethoven and Handel, to name but a few. The White Eagle messages that were given through her brought and to this day are bringing comfort and healing to anyone who requires it. Most important of all her efforts helped us to find a better understanding of the processes of life, of birth and death and reincarnation. Our grateful thanks goes to all who made it possible, on both sides of the veil of consciousness.

Grace began her career as a spiritualist medium in 1913. Early in her career, she used her psychic gifts to offer evidence of survival. On occasions the then British prime minister, Ramsay MacDonald, vouched for the accuracy of her spirit communications. She became progressively convinced that the spiritual and philosophical aspects of Spiritualism were more important than mere evidence of survival. Initially Grace formed a small church in Middlesex. She later separated from its activities after the church leaders became more interested in proofs of survival, but her emphasis had shifted to spiritual healing and to channelling teachings from White Eagle.

The White Eagle Lodge came into being on 22 February 1936, when its first premises were dedicated in Kensington, London under the direction of Grace’s spirit guides. Shall we ever be able to pay our debt of gratitude to the Angels and Masters, guides and helpers in the spirit world, who are ceaselessly toiling in the background of our existence to bring every last one of us home into the awareness of their true nature and the oneness with God?

The Source Of My Inspiration – Part Five

Developing Discernment


In my view, the same applies to the White Eagle teachings as to any other collection of religious/spiritual knowledge in the vast storehouse of our world. Let us be ever careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater. For dealing with any spiritual wisdom what we need first and foremost is to develop our discerning faculties to the highest degree. Equally important is that we constantly work on strengthening the contact with our inner guidance, so that these two faculties together can help us to distinguish reliably and unfailingly the wheat from the chaff. The task for aspiring healers and lightbringers is picking the best and leaving the rest, to be recycled.

That’s how I have always handled any kind of writing, including the White Eagle teachings. My relationship with the White Eagle group of guides will never be disturbed or disrupted by anything that happens in the Lodge that carries its name. From the moment of first encountering one of its teachings, the name White Eagle for me has always been a symbol of the Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life and their only born Son/Daughter, the Christ Spirit.

On the mighty wings of the wisdom and truth that are now flowing ever more powerfully from the Universe’s loving heart into ours, the Christ Spirit seeks to empower each one of us to lift ourselves and those around us above the myths, legends and superstitions of earthly life into the radiance of the truth that for so long had to remain hidden behind them. Through searching the esoteric meaning of such tales and through that learning about the fate that ultimately awaits even the last and slowest one of us, our superconscious faculties unfold and our inner vision opens. This enables the Christ Spirit to lift us into the realities of the higher and eventually highest realms, and we recognise that this is our true home and the place from which we once emerged.

I believe that peace will come to our world when a majority of souls in earthly life have grown into this kind of awareness, which is the gift of spiritual adulthood. The energies that are created when as many as possible are working together on the healing of our world, hand in hand with God and the Angels, will gradually grow powerful enough to pull the rest of our world along with us.

Spiritual adults are those who know and accept that every right brings with it a duty. The right of taking part in earthly life and taking from it what we need, brings with it the responsibility and duty to take first class care of our planet and do what we can to avoid over-consuming and protecting Mother Earth’s precious resources. What spiritual adults require most urgently is finding their own truth. This aspect of our being is deepened and strengthened by every small effort we make to develop it some more. The inflow of God’s sacred wisdom and truth directly into every heart and soul that is open to receive it, is bringing our world a new kind of truth that is no longer based on someone else’s beliefs, but on what everyone’s inner guidance says is true and right for us, now. This is the only truth that really can provide us with a deep inner knowingness and certainty.

With regard to understanding spiritual truth I am sure there is a great deal that each one of us and our whole race still have to learn. Although I have been attending to my writings just about every day and that week after week, month after month and even year after year, and that for a long time, I imagine that I shall never have found and told you all there is yet to be discovered. All I can do is attend to the lessons I have chosen for this lifetime and let you take part in them through my jottings, as best as I know how to.

Alas, it is in the nature of spiritual awakening that, until we have reached full consciousness, much of the time we are working blindfold and stumbling around in the dark. Let’s not begrudge this because it’s an essential part of the mystery of our earthly existence and God’s great plan of life. If we wish to develop real and lasting faith in the goodness of life, all we can do is keep going quietly, trusting the power of God’s all-knowing, all-seeing and all-redeeming love to show us the way forever. In this way we shall find out soon enough what more glorious spiritual experiences than those of our present existence are waiting for us.

Because there is no way of knowing when our karmic debts have been paid and all lessons learnt, true faith and trust in the Highest are the most important parts of our armoury whilst humbly serving on the Earth plane. But in spite of our spiritual awareness we cannot help still to a certain extent being caught up in the darkness and illusion of Earth life. Yet, if only we can manage to keep going no matter what, every new day is sure to bring us another bit of wisdom and understanding.

To return to White Eagle for a moment, I would like to repeat that my relationship is and always will be with the White Eagle group of spirit guides and NOT with the White Eagle Lodge. However, should an injustice be done to anyone and/or should someone be accused of things they are not guilty of, you can count on me to speak up for and support them. Naturally, this includes the White Eagle Lodge. But independent of what may ever happen there, my relationship with the White Eagle group of guides and their teachings will never change. In my view, there is no need for anyone else’s connection with them to do so either. Naturally, this is for each individual to decide for themselves.

As far as any kind of spiritual knowledge is concerned, let’s not repeat the mistake that was made by humankind so often in the past. We can do better than to confuse the bringer of a message with the things of great value they may have been sent from the Highest planes of life to bring down to the Earth. With the degree of understanding we have developed by now it is no longer difficult to recognise the higher esoteric meaning that lies behind the surface words of many of these teachings.

To make the most of the time that remains of our present lifetime on the earthly plane, we need to strive for balance. Cultivating a sense of humour and of fun is as essential as enjoying the gifts of Mother Earth, taking part in life without abusing it. Balance needs to be striven for in all things and there is no need to lose our liking for the physical realms of life and its gifts. By looking for and revelling in that which is good, right and beautiful on the Earth plane and leaving the rest behind, our earthly self gets to know and absorbs true beauty. And there is no reason for not experiencing the spiritual background and the higher aspects of our existence at the same time. This safeguards the balance we are here to seek for our spiritual progress.

What Is Love?

There is an inner emptiness in every human being
That can only be filled by learning to love God’s way,
Totally, unconditionally and non-judgemental.
That is the only thing that can
Satisfy our hunger and quench our thirst
For reaching out to the higher
And eventually highest levels of life,
To claim our rightful place in it.

Everything was created by love from love
And so were you and I.
Our true nature is love and through loving God’s way
We realise that we are part of the whole of Creation.
That’s why all I want to do is being kind and loving
To everybody. This is the only way I can be
True to my real self.

On the inner level all life is one.
There is no separation between anything.
You are in me and I am in you.
And when I reflect on the state of our world,
I realise that I have done my share of
Bringing everything into being,
The good as well as the bad.
I accept my responsibility and,
By conducting my life in more harmonious
And peaceful ways, help to make our world
A better and more enjoyable world.

The Source Of My Inspiration – Part Six

Letting Go Of Our Fears


The new understanding that for some time has been coming to us is designed to assist all of us with letting go of and dissolving every one of our fears, especially those of God and death, the future and everything that for wise reasons up to now had to remain unknown and hidden from our earthly self’s view. What we are finding is one of the greatest gifts humankind has ever received from the Highest. It brings us the renewal of hope and faith in the profound goodness of the life the Universal forces with their infinite generosity and kindness are giving us anew with each passing day.

Through the knowledge we are now finding there grows in us a different kind of trust that is no longer based on the wobbly foundation of mere beliefs. This faith is based on a deep inner certainty that grows organically from within, because it is rooted in knowing who we are, what the true purpose of our existence is, where we are coming from and going to, what is expected from us and which role we have to play in God’s great plan of life. Knowing these things slowly but surely helps us to overcome and let go of even the darkest and most threatening of our existential fears.

We only fear that which we fail to understand, but when we at last grasp the true meaning of something we find to our astonishment and delight that there really is nothing to be afraid of. Our inner guidance is there and working with us. Each time we hear or read some positive and constructive approaches to the things we still are fearful of, the small still voice within reacts with: ‘Pay attention to this, it makes sense and that means it’s true!’ It is unlikely that any fear will go immediately, but the more we look into and work with it, the deeper the new knowledge sinks into our consciousness, until with the passing of time it becomes our spiritual property and ours to keep in all Eternity.

This is particularly valuable when it comes to trying to communicate with our loved ones in the world of spirit in an attempt to strengthen the connection of our two hearts. This can be made easier by becoming aware that at all times earthly life is surrounded by worlds that are invisible to earthly eyes and that great oceans are waiting to be explored by us in the later stages of our development. It’s good to talk with our children as early as possible of the presence of these things, as this helps them to remain in touch with the finer ethers of the spirit world, humankind’s true home. Make them familiar with the fact that they only recently left this world and that in due course they will return to it, the same as everybody else. Our spiritual consciousness expands quite rapidly once we come to terms with the forces from the higher and highest realms of life that are constantly at work within and around every one of us.

I hope you will forgive me for returning to the theme of my truth for a moment. I would like you to know that there is no problem for me if your truth is different from mine. This is quite natural when one looks at a theme from a different viewpoint. So, when you are reading something you don’t agree with, why not go within to see what comes to you intuitively? Instead of repeating what someone before us said or wrote, no matter how old and venerable that person is or was and how long ago their teachings appeared, now it is necessary to find out what our own inner guidance has to say about it. Please let me know what your wise one within tells you and I shall listen with great interests. If I receive a reaction of: ‘Yes, this is true!’, I shall happily accept your truth as part of mine.

This is how in the Age of Aquarius the individual and collective consciousness of our world will keep on expanding. And each time you and I are growing in understanding and wisdom, our whole world and even the Universe’s is doing the same. As ever more knowledge arrives through various channels of communication with the Highest, it is highly likely that what we presently know as truth will change. In the same way many of the White Eagle teachings have become outdated and are in need of re-interpretation. Through deep feelings of recognition or otherwise our inner guidance is always waiting to tell us a truth from an untruth, and to discern whether something is right or wrong.

The Source Of My Inspiration – Part Seven

Progress


Let there be many windows to your soul,
That all the glory of the Universe may beautify it.
Not the narrow pane of one poor creed
Can catch the radiant rays
That shine from countless sources.
Tear away the blinds of superstition.
Let the light pour through fair windows,
Broad as truth itself and high as God.

Why should the spirit peer
Through some priest-curtained orifice,
And grope along dim corridors of doubt,
When all the splendour from unfathomed seas of space
Might bathe it with the golden waves of love?
Sweep up the debris of decaying faiths.
Sweep down the cobwebs of worn-out beliefs
And throw your soul wide open to the light
Of reason and of knowledge.

Tune your ear
To all the wordless music of the stars
And to the voice of nature,
And your heart shall turn to truth and goodness,
As a plant turns to the Sun.
A thousand unseen hands reach down to help you
To their peace-crowned heights.
And all the forces of the firmament
Shall fortify your strength.
Be not afraid
To thrust aside half-truths and grasp the whole.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
1850-1919
