The creative spirit is above destiny

In order to survive on the physical plane, we, as human beings, must receive everything we need from the external world. We would be unable to live without the elements that the earth, water, air and the sun provide for us. We are creatures, and all creatures have to get what they need from outside themselves in order to survive. Only the Creator is above this law – he has no need of anything external to himself since he is life.
But since within each creature, the Creator left a particle of himself, a spark, a spirit, of the same nature as himself, thanks to this spirit that inhabits them, each creature can also become creators themselves. And so, instead of always waiting for everything to come to them from outside, human beings have the ability to act within, by means of their thoughts, willpower, and spirit, and to capture the elements they need to support their physical life and especially their psychic life. This is why the teaching of the initiates has always been the teaching of the creative spirit. Those who accept this teaching will always be strong and independent and, for they will rise above the conditions imposed upon them by destiny.

  1. …have fervent “charity” among yourselves…

    I wonder what “charity” meant to those who chose that word when interpreting the Greek writings, which some refer to as the “scripture” of the “Beginning of the Christian Era”.
    “Charity” may have meant something entirely different then, than what it means to us today.

    Trivia Tid Bit: The Greeks, way back when, had no punctuation in their writing system.

  2. Hi Tracy,
    Thanks for a thought-provoking response.
    My understanding is that the word ‘charity’ has a completely different meaning today to the original ‘caritas’ used by the Greeks. To the early Christians it meant a warm, genuine love of others and concern for their wellbeing- loving others as you love yourselves. Today I think charity is something that is sometimes given as a substitute for that sense of brotherly-sisterly connection.- though not always, of course.
    Sometimes charity is used to sooth a bad or uneasy conscience.

    I am so inspired by the master’s explanation- that by identifying with the creative spirit we are enpowered to draw from the full abundance of life and become the master of our own destiny.
