Church bells ringing

A meditation and poem for the ending of the year

Do not wait for the kingdom of God as you would a political or social organisation that comes to impose itself on earth. The kingdom of God is first and foremost a state of consciousness, a way of living and working. That is why it cannot be realised on the physical plane until it is first realised in our thoughts. Once realised in our thoughts it will descend into the heart, into our feelings, and it is then that it can finally be expressed in our actions.

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 …

train tracks diverging

You shape your future every day, every hour

When you decide to start a project, be aware that you shape your future every day, every hour, and even every second. When you have a good thought, or a good feeling, this sets you instantly on the path of light. But if a few minutes later a person or an incident triggers a selfish, unjust thought, or a feeling of anger, or a desire for revenge, your orientation changes, and you veer towards darkness. And even if on the physical plane, no change can be seen immediately – as these thoughts and feelings do not have time to materialise – something has changed in the higher regions, in the direction you are taking. When  a certain lever is pulled, the train changes tracks. Well, that is what people do every day, sometimes a hundred or a thousand times a day: once in the right direction, once in the wrong direction – they change tracks. Since everything is recorded, each of these changes is recorded too. If they do not produce anything permanent on the …
