The Cosmic Being that dwells within

Man watching sunrise from summit of mountain

We should understand the Lord exists right there within us, and at the same time remember that we are a part of him, an infinitesimal particle, that He is the whole and we are a particle of this whole. If you pray to the Lord thinking he is somewhere beyond the stars, how do you expect your prayer to reach Him? Yes, it is true that prayer travels throughout the universe; but it takes so long for it to cross infinite space! On the other hand, if the Lord is right here within you, all you have to do is …

The enemy within- the lower nature

Deadly nightshade

Human beings’ lower nature is like an enemy who continues to destroy the good work they have done. Despite them seeking to transform their being into a land where vegetation will grow to nourish themselves as well as others, their lower nature strives to sow the seeds of poisonous plants in them: jealousy, pride, sensuality, greed, vanity, anger, and so on. And why does it so often succeed? Because humans are neither educated nor vigilant. Try to identify this inner enemy seeking to sneak through and sow weeds or even poisonous plants in you. By studying the methods it uses …

Expressing our true, divine nature

You should understand that you are divinities. Yes, divinities, and you live on a higher plane free of limitations, shadows and darkness, sorrow and suffering, in the midst of abundance and joy. Do you know what prevents you from manifesting the splendour of those higher regions here below? Your personality- in other words, your lower nature. Your personality is too unadaptable, too self-centred to capture the subtle messages from those regions… like a radio that cannot pick up all the stations. The waves and vibrations released by Cosmic Intelligence in the higher spheres are swift as lightning, and the matter …

Into the light

white lotus in the light

I speak to you only of yourselves, of realities that exist within you. Even if you are still not aware of their existence and do not fully understand what I am referring to, I know that through my words I am contacting an entity whose only wish is to come into the light. This entity can be compared to a lotus that begins to develop underwater before blossoming on the surface. Things are born, take shape and begin to grow in the darkness of the subconscious. By the time they rise to awareness, they are no longer in their early stage …

Remain on higher ground

Beautiful mountain landscape

The disciples of a spiritul teaching are aware that within them there is something beautiful and great that longs to express itself, and they seek the help of beings of light in the invisible world. Their wish flows from them as a subtle fluid, and the entities that pick this up are always ready to respond to their request. But it is one thing to have a spiritual ideal and quite another to keep it firmly in your soul. When you have succeeded in elevating your inner state it is difficult to stay on the high ground. But you have …

Our true roots- the divine world

beautiful blue butterflies

When human beings neglect the bond that unites them with the divine world, they cut themselves off from their true roots and have great difficulty in giving meaning to life. The divine world is not like a foreign country that lies outside of us and that we can ignore without consequences. The divine world is our inner earth, our original earth, it is the world of our soul and our spirit, and by cutting ourselves off from it, we deprive ourselves of the resources we need most to live. Some people, when faced with life’s hardships, instinctively regain the contact …

Perspiration of the soul

A walk in the mountains

Perspiring is good for your health. But perspiring physically, i.e. sweating, is not enough, and do not be surprised if I tell you that the soul and the spirit must also perspire. Love makes the soul perspire and wisdom makes the spirit perspire. Of course the word perspiring must be understood in a very wide sense. Perspiration symbolizes a perfect exchange that is established between the microcosm (humankind) and the macrocosm (the universe). Physically, these exchanges occur through the skin, as we discard waste and absorb energy through the skin. In the subtle plane, however, these exchanges occur through the …

The feet and the solar plexus- reservoir of life forces

Feet splashing in water

It is more than likely that, in the ordinary circumstances of your lives, you have noticed the link between the feet and the solar plexus. If you had cold feet, for instance, you may have been aware of a certain tenseness in the solar plexus and if you ate when you felt like that you will probably have had indigestion! Whereas if you start by having a hot footbath, you will feel the plexus relaxing, which gives you a warm, pleasant feeling and puts you in a good mood! When you have to face a very painful situation or meet …

Learn to open yourself up, to give

Sunflower blossoms

You do not realise just how rich and full your life can become, but on one condition: that you learn to open yourself up, to give, to become more fraternal, and more generous. Why do you always wait for others to take the first step, to greet you and to smile at you? Do not wait any longer. It is now up to you to project ever more light and love, to perfume the atmosphere around you with your emanations. Then, even the stones on the road will quiver as you pass by, and all who approach you will sense …

Look for the divinity that lives within every man and woman

Pedestrians- The Mall

Try to understand me when I tell you that I look for the divinity which lives within every man and every woman, and try to do as I do. It is by behaving in this way that we show our respect for the works of God. Because I admire the wisdom of the Lord, I sense something infinitely beautiful and precious in every being which deserves to be considered and loved. Too bad if some of you make fun of my attitude and think that I live in a world of illusion! On the contrary, I know that I live …

Evolution towards flight

Dinosaurs were reptiles with four legs that lived on earth millions of years ago, and we now know that birds are the product of their evolution. Over time and with successive transformations, the front legs of these reptiles have become wings. Yes, as unbelievable as it may sound, dinosaurs are the ancestors of birds. How to interpret this evolution? Perhaps among these reptiles there were some who were more enterprising, more daring, more curious who wanted to break free, fleeing the ground. Some others followed suit, while others, lazy and stubborn, have continued to crawl. Take this interpretation as you …

What is real?

Objective reality does not really exist: for every human being, the only reality is what they live and feel. Take the case of someone who has hallucinations: they feel that they are pursued by monsters, they are terrified and flee screaming. Physically, visibly, no one is attacking them, but they feel persecuted, and are suffering, and when someone suffers, try telling them that it is only an illusion! Their suffering is real! In the same way, in the middle of the worst material situations, certain human beings can experience illumination and ecstasy. Once again, how can they be persuaded that …

Why does hatred exist?

Animosity and hatred arise between human beings because face-to-face with one another they are never conscious that they are in the presence of a spirit, a spark that is seeking to manifest itself and that, in order to help this spirit before them, it is worth their while to be kind, patient, understanding and generous. Given the way they are used to seeing each other and what they see in each other when they meet, it is inevitable that they end up wanting to kill each other. And even some who have, supposedly, placed the love of God and others …

The aura- our true protective garment

Clothes are screens which insulate us and protect us from the world around us. Without clothes we are more exposed and naturally become more sensitive. If we draw an analogy with our inner life, we can say that sensitivity is a manifestation of spirituality: those who make an effort to tear themselves from ordinary preoccupations and to overcome their basic instincts, are able to slowly dissolve the dark layers surrounding them like coarse cloth, and become more receptive to the divine world. In the sacred books, we read accounts in which those who have succeeded in passing initiatic tests receive …

Radiant and powerful as the sun…

Learn to rally your thoughts, your desires and even all the tendencies of your lower nature to fulfil a sublime ideal. The sun can help you achieve this task of unification and harmonization. As you watch it rise in the morning, imagine that your consciousness is drawing closer to your own sun – your spirit, your higher self – to merge with it. When you have succeeded in pacifying and bringing together all the opposing forces that pull you about, to project them in a single direction, toward the light and the divine, you will become such a centre of …

Are we ever really alone?

So many people today say that they are lonely. And yet in reality no one is ever alone. The whole universe is watching us and listening to us. None of our words or gestures remains without an echo. If, in the morning as you open your window, you make a habit of saying good morning to the earth, the sky and the whole of creation, voices will answer you, echoing from the four directions in space: good morning, good morning, good morning… and you will feel them with you all day long. Also, when you leave your house, you come across a number of …

Self-mastery- harnessing our inner horses

A human being can be compared to a harnessing of three horses, which Russians call ‘troïka’. These three horses are symbolically our three bodies – physical, astral and mental – which we must guide all at the same time. They each have a different color: the physical horse is red, the astral horse – the heart – is green and the mental horse – the intellect – is yellow. In order for the three horses to be obedient and to walk in step together, we must hold the reins firmly, that is to say, establish a contact with them with …

What beings dwell inside us?

Because the human being is seen as a single body, the physical body, they are generally thought to be inhabited by a single entity, and yet daily life continually proves otherwise. Entities of completely different natures take turns in expressing themselves through them, and this is why humans can appear in turn intelligent and stupid, kind and cruel, generous and miserly, modest and conceited, and so on. This mixture of disparate elements making up each human being remains an enigma even for philosophers and psychologists. And yet, it can be very simply explained by the fact that human beings themselves …

The sacred side of sexuality

 “The next time you take someone into your arms, project them all the way to heaven and link them to the higher regions. A man should address the Divine Mother through his beloved and she should address the Heavenly Father through him -instead of limiting their exchanges to the lower regions, both of them will be linking themselves to the Source. In this way both of you take the riches God has given you- life and the emanations and warmth of mutual love -and instead of using them for your own pleasure, you drink together the purest form of love …

Count on the spirit within

As long as you trust in external conditions or material objects, you are headed for great disillusionment, because conditions change from one moment to another, and objects slip away from you. The only thing you can truly count on is the spirit within, which is pure activity and constant effort. Use all the external means, if you have them, and thank heaven for giving them to you, but do not count on them. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
