Meditation New Year 2020

Imagine that centuries ago, a shepherd in the mountains was idly tracing a small furrow in the ground with his staff. It was just a small furrow, but then came the rain, snow, frost, wind and sun, and little by little, this furrow grew deeper and wider until it turned into the bed of a torrent. What can we learn from this image? That the same phenomenon occurs with human beings. Every thought, every feeling is like a furrow drawn in our own inner earth, and all the psychic and spiritual forces circulating in space serve to make this furrow deeper and wider.As today marks the beginning of a new year, strive to consciously draw a furrow in your soul. Concentrate on a divine thought, make a divine wish, and live today in such a way that it becomes imprinted in you. Heavenly powers will be alerted and will come to support you in your efforts.

Daily Meditation Christmas Eve

But the initiates had another purpose as well for these festivals. They wanted to encourage people to explore the energies in the subtler realms so as to regenerate and vivify their heart and soul.

The mystical meaning of Christmas

Why do we celebrate Christmas at the beginning of Winter? The reply can be found in the book of nature. All life begins as a seed, a seed buried in the darkness of the earth or deep within a woman’s womb. Winter is the season when, in the seeds planted in the earth, the long work of germination takes place; and this work ends in springtime, when a multitude of new existences burst into life. An identical work takes place in the psyche of each human being: in the dark earth, representing his lower nature, the seed of the divine Self, the Christ, must begin to germinate. This is the event which Christians celebrate on Christmas night…yes, exactly then, during the night, at midnight, the moment of greatest darkness. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov    Sons and Daughters of God We celebrate the birth of the master Jesus at Christmas, but just as important as the commemoration of this historical event, is the opportunity  we all have to prepare for the birth of the Christ child within …
