Warmth and openness- how to walk the talk

“Having thoughts that are clear, fair and noble is not all.. It is necessary for these thoughts to come down into the heart and will, to be expressed through feelings and then through corresponding actions. Many people have good judgment and excellent ideas, but of what use are these if they do not translate into actions of the same quality? Often, the contrast between people’s ideas and the reality of their daily lives is such that they only experience disappointment. And on top of this, they do not understand what is happening to them – quite simply, they have not been able to create a connection between high and low through their feelings. Thought does not have the ability to affect matter directly: to act on matter and transform it, it needs the intermediary of feeling. So work also on your feelings, by being warmer and more open to others.- in this way. your ideas will become flesh and bone and be translated into action”. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov     Daily Meditations

Sacred Fire of Divine Love

Just as physical fire has the power to make iron sufficiently pliant and tractable to be given a new form, so the heavenly fire of divine love has the power to plunge man into a state in which he sloughs off his warped, crooked form and receives a new, bright, harmonious one. So, in order to change all your old ideas and habits and transform your character, and even your heredity, you must call on heavenly fire. You must beg it to come into you, to envelop and enflame your heart and your whole being. Do not rely on explanations from other people or from books: they can do nothing for you if you are not alight with the blazing fire that makes you as alive as the sun. For the sun is living fire, and it is by going to see the sun rise every morning that we renew our contact with this fire from heaven. If you forge a close bond with the sun, if, wholeheartedly and with all the powers of your …

New moon and new beginnings

As you know, the lunar cycle lasts about one month: the moon waxes for fourteen days and wanes for another fourteen, and this alternation affects and changes many things in nature and in human beings. We can say that the period of the waxing moon is a time for activity, whereas, on the contrary, when it is on the wane, the emphasis is on somnolence, oblivion and rest. Those who do not know that these natural rhythms exist might be worried by the changes that they feel in themselves while the moon is on the wane. There is no need to worry; the important thing is to take care not to use up all one’s reserves. Even if the lucidity, intensity and efficacy  that we bring to our work while the moon is on the wane are not as great as when it is waxing we can still continue something that we have already begun. If you inaugurate some important work or activity, on the other hand, it is more likely to succeed if you …

Finding love without looking

Are you looking for love? Well, that is why you do not find it. You may say, ‘But I need love so much! How can I find it if I don’t look for it?’ If you really want to find love, first start by giving love, and stop looking for it. You will then find that it follows you around, and even if you want to get rid of it you will not be able to. If you chase it out of the door, it will come back in through the window! Yes, as soon as you stop looking for it, having decided to give it instead, it will come to you. So the more you look for it, the further away it gets. It is like chasing your shadow: it flees ahead of you, and you can never catch it. If you look for love from others, you are focusing on something outside yourself, so you distance yourself from the treasure you already have inside you, and you end up losing it. That is …

War of love between the stars

War will never disappear entirely but it will be a different kind of war. One day, it will be a war of love, with human beings sending each other rays of love, like the stars. The more we evolve, the more the exchanges between us will be filled with light and love, like the exchanges between the constellations and the stars. When I was very young in Bulgaria, I used to sleep under the stars at night on the mountain of Rila, at 2,000 or 2,500 metres of altitude. Sometimes the snow would fall during the night and I would wake up entirely covered in snow! Ah, it was wonderful! I would go to sleep staring at the stars. That is how I discovered that the stars fight each other continually with light, and that one day humans would do the same thing with rays of love, with colors. Cosmic Intelligence will never suppress the human desire to fight, although it will be a different kind of war, with no cannons and no bombs, but …

Become like the sun

Like the sun, which sheds its light and warmth throughout the universe, you can have an effect on all regions in space by means of your thoughts and feelings. During this journey you will meet a host of creatures, and you will greet them and be greeted back. Realize that this is what true life is: exchanges, and the uninterrupted communication with millions of creatures. Become like the sun… Cherish this ideal, and let it become so important to you that your whole being is on fire with it, is illuminated by it. Little by little, you will feel all the seeds of the divine life growing within you. Without forcing anything, without even thinking about it, you will express the best of yourself. Your whole being must be directed toward the sun – the spiritual sun. Once it is shining in your soul, you become like the earth in spring, when all of nature comes to life again….. So, take the sun as your model, as it sheds light, warmth and life. You will …

The sacred side of sexuality

 “The next time you take someone into your arms, project them all the way to heaven and link them to the higher regions. A man should address the Divine Mother through his beloved and she should address the Heavenly Father through him -instead of limiting their exchanges to the lower regions, both of them will be linking themselves to the Source. In this way both of you take the riches God has given you- life and the emanations and warmth of mutual love -and instead of using them for your own pleasure, you drink together the purest form of love from the highest source. The secret of control, the secret of sublimation, is to seek work not pleasure. You say “But suppose I hold my love in my arms… what’s the point if I’m not looking for pleasure?. There can be joy, there can be inspiration, there can be wonder and ecstasy, if you have a heightened consciousness …. is that not more than pleasure? When a man and woman are together sharing a divine …

Faith is knowledge of divine laws

As far as many of our contemporaries are concerned, faith is a matter only for those who are ignorant, naive or even a bit slow. They are convinced that for humanity to evolve it must abandon all so-called irrational beliefs imposed by religions. Well, they are mistaken. On the contrary, faith is based on knowledge of the great cosmic laws, and there is no science more essential than the science of laws. So, to have faith is to build our existence on a stable foundation, based on the knowledge of these laws. Those who have faith know they are travelling along a well-marked road, one they themselves have chosen and decided to follow. While they are busy constructing something solid, good and beautiful, they don’t have time to concern themselves with everything pointless or negative that’s being said or done around them. Their whole focus is on the work they have begun. And when difficulties occur in their lives, they will already be stronger as a result of the work they have done, and this …
