Daily Meditation for New Year's Day 2016

Hundreds of years ago a shepherd in the mountains, was absent-mindedly making a small furrow in the ground with his stick. But then came rain, snow, frost, wind, sun… and gradually the small furrow deepened and widened to become the bed of a torrent. This is only an image, but it shows us that the same phenomenon occurs with humans. Every thought, every feeling is like a furrow drawn in their own inner earth, and all psychic and spiritual forces operating in space contribute to digging and expanding it. A new year begins today… Is it not the time to consciously draw a furrow in your soul? Concentrate on a divine thought, formulate a divine wish and live today in such a way that it that it becomes imprinted in you. Celestial powers will be alerted and they will support you in your efforts. Each day they will be there to tell you, ‘Remember, the first day of the year you made a furrow, one that was uninterrupted and deep.’ And if you listen, if …

New Year's Eve Meditation

“Tomorrow a new year begins, and you can begin to make ready for it consciously by focusing on a goal: a quality you want to develop, a bad habit you want to lose, a project you want to carry out for the glory of God. With this thought, this wish, it is as if you are laying the first stone, and then all the luminous nature spirits will contribute their help, so that you can realize your divine plan. These should be your thoughts on this last day of the year. Unfortunately, you won’t meet many people concerned with such things. Most are getting ready to indulge in all kinds of excess. Can you be surprised, then, if the year goes badly for them? So you at least, who are disciples of the divine school, do your best to see in the new year with the light as your focus.” … “If you want the new year to be truly new for you, think of it as a living, wealthy being that can bring you …

Gratitude is a source of light, peace and joy

“Show gratitude every day for the life you have received from God, for this life enables you to discover so many treasures. Give thanks for the happiness you derive from having good health, a family, friends… Think too of all the unpleasant encounters and all the accidents that can happen during the course of a day and which you have avoided. When you get home safe and sound after a car journey, do you think to thank heaven? It can take very little sometimes for an accident to occur on the roads, and there are so many of them! When you say the words ‘thank you’, it is like a source of light, peace and joy springing from your soul. And this source pours into all your cells. Little by little, you feel something in you becoming more alive, stronger and brighter. This is why, when the day comes where you have to face great difficulties, not only will you not collapse, you will still be able to continue to give thanks. Don’t forget: the …

Symbolism of the star and the three gifts

This light, this star that shone over the stable at Bethlehem means that every initiate in whom the living Christ is present, radiates light; a light that soothes, nourishes and comforts, a light that heals, purifies and gives life. And one day this light is seen from afar by others and they realize that something very special is manifesting itself through this being, and this ‘something’ is the Christ. This light that is represented by a star with five points is an absolute reality: it shines above the head of every initiate whose feminine principle (that is, whose heart and soul) has given birth to the Christ child, conceived by the Holy Spirit.” St Matthew’s gospel recounts how wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, ‘Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star in the East, and have come to pay him homage.’ These wise men, traditionally called Melchior, Balthasar and Gaspar, brought Jesus gold, incense and myrrh. Each of these gifts has a symbolic meaning. Gold signifies that Jesus was king: …
