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 you continue your work patiently, one day you will feel a river of light passing through you.
Daily Meditation 1st January 2016
“On the first day of this New Year, I wish you all the blessings of heaven. May your body be healthy and vigorous, your heart be filled with pure, spiritual joy, your intellect receive true light to make your path clear, your soul become a conductor for divine love, and your spirit, freed from its fetters, escape from all physical and psychic prisons. May you remain linked to the great hierarchy of celestial beings, so you can work with them for the establishment of the kingdom of God on earth. And finally, may you be capable of overcoming each obstacle that arises, so each day may be an opportunity to glorify the Creator…
