Love without limits

To be loved: this is the concept most human beings have of happiness. Of course, they agree to love a little, but they believe that the main thing is to be loved. This is easy to prove: why do they suffer so when they learn that the person they love does not give back that love, or does not give back as much as they wish? They wait for the outside world to give them love. If it does not come, or if it is taken away, they feel deprived: they do not believe in their own power, in their own ability to love, they need love to come from someone outside of themselves. In reality, to find peace and joy, we must not wait for love to come from other people, but rely only on our own love: because within us lies the source of love, and this source is unlimited.

Repaying our debt to Nature

We are indebted to nature for all that she gives us: air, water, heat, sunshine, etc. And as we cannot pay off this debt with money, we are going to have to pay it in the currency of love, gratitude, and respect, and with our readiness to study everything that is written in Nature’s living book. We also pay off some of that debt when we help other creatures; when we pass on some warmth and light to them. We cannot pay for the air we breathe with air, nor for the water we drink with water. But what we can give, what we are being asked to give, are our luminous emanations. For human beings were created in the Lord’s workshops in such a way that they are capable of radiating, shining and projecting their emanations into the entire universe. They have been given a quintessence of light and the power to ceaselessly amplify and vivify it.  They are then able to send this light out into space- on condition, of course, that they …

True love, found above

Inner force, balance, peace and happiness all depend on love. You must feel that love is always there within your reach, that it is in you, and that you have, therefore, no reason to believe you are weak, poor and lonely. If you have this feeling of loneliness, it proves that you are not free from the physical plane. As soon as you enter onto the subtle planes, especially the regions of the soul and spirit, you cannot feel lonely; the universal Soul and Spirit are always there close to you, within you, and you can communicate with them at any time. Whereas with a man or a woman – even the best – can you be sure that, one day or another, they will not have other commitments and be forced to leave you? And so, even if you have found the most wonderful person on earth, do not fix your mind on him or her. Be grateful to heaven for having met such a being, but know that you will experience true love …

Safety in God, our heavenly parents

There is no greater happiness than to feel at least once in our life like a true child of God. At least once to experience feeling safe in the bosom of the Eternal, in our primal purity and innocence. In order one day to be able to know this state of consciousness, we must undertake a great work with light, to bring light and purity into all the dark recesses of our psychic life. If we seek to identify more and more with our higher self, with our spirit, we will one day remember what we once were in the distant past when we still lived in God. And so we will gradually feel regenerated , back in favour, the son or daughter of our heavenly father. Only our spirit is truly innocent, and by doing all we can to get closer to it we will regain our original innocence. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov The master gave an interesting and very helpful commentary on the words of Jesus- ‘Unless you become as little children you cannot …

Sweet scent of roses

“People love to receive and give flowers; they put them in their homes, plant them in their gardens, go to admire them in parks and in nature and marvel at their shapes, their colours and their perfumes. But they think of them mainly as decorative features that make life more pleasant, so their interest in flowers remains superficial, and they do not gain much benefit from their presence. But what are flowers really? They are living beings with which we can create a relationship. Yes, a flower is not simply a piece of matter with a colour and perfume; it is the home of an entity that has come to speak to us of earth and heaven. And if we know how to look at it, how to relate to it, we connect with the forces of nature, with the entities that work to make the flower such a life-giving, poetic presence”. More on roses in the post Love, Venus and Roses.

Ocean of light- true knowledge and freedom

In order to transcend the limits of their consciousness,  disciples of initiatic science must learn to project themselves up to great heights, to the sublime Being that embraces and nourishes every creature. A disciple seeks to know how this Being envisions the destiny of mankind, what its plans are for the disciple’s own evolution, not just in the near future, but more importantly, in the distant future. And it is through striving to draw closer and closer to this immense, luminous and perfect Being that disciples are able to detach themselves. A transformation takes place within them, in their subconscious, in their consciousness, and in their super consciousness, and what they then feel and experience is indescribable. This practice is one of the most beneficial: by devoting themselves to it every day, disciples distance themselves from their limited ego and dissolve into this ocean of light which is God. It is here that they receive true knowledge and discover freedom. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Finding God in light
