Peaceful silence of the stars

This is the text by Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov of the video published on the front page of this blog. It is from The Path of Silence, the chapter called Revelations of a starry sky. When I was young, in Bulgaria, I would sometimes climb up and spend the night at the top of Mount Mousalla. I would wrap myself up in several blankets and, stretching out on my back, gaze up at the starry sky. I’d try to link myself to the cosmic forces and entities of which the stars are only the physical aspect. I could not understand all they said to me, but I loved them; my whole soul glowed with the wonder of them while I lay and looked at them until, without realizing, I finally fell asleep. Those were the years in which I discovered the extraordinary peace that floods your being when you spend a night on the mountain. I found myself transported to regions in which I felt and understood that the only activity that really matters in life …

Working towards peace: three methods of helping humanity

A lot of us are concerned about the state of the world at the moment and especially about the threats to peace. So here are three simple but effective meditative methods of helping humanity from Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov: Send thoughts of light to heads of state If you want to help your country, you must touch the person in charge with thoughts of light, so that he or she may always be well inspired. You cannot help a whole country directly; it is too big. It is enough- and it is far easier- to help one person, just one. And this one person, in turn, will help everyone else, for much depends on the leader. If he or she can promote just laws in the areas of public health, housing, and education, the whole population will benefit, all bccause one person was well inspired. See humanity as a single being You think it is not possible to bring light and peace to all the people on earth, as there are so many of them! Of …

Let all around us be peace, love

Let the spring of love flow within you. Through your thoughts, your feelings, your wishes, your words, let it gush forth over all the creatures and objects around you and beyond, on the trees, the mountains, the oceans. Even if you are by yourself, remember to utter words of peace, of hope and of joy for all human beings on earth, knowing that these words will have an effect somewhere, no matter where. You do not yet know what it is possible to achieve with love. And since we can only give to others what we possess ourselves, try first to establish harmony and light within you, and then, once you feel you have succeeded in making this harmony and light real within you, in your heart and your soul, project them into space. This is what working with love is all about: becoming a beneficial presence for the entire world. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov This thought from the master (today’s Daily Meditation) chimes with one of my favourite tracks on Youtube at the moment. The …

A colour meditation- blue of peace and truth

Colours are modulations of light and through them, entities working in stones, plants, animals and humans manifest themselves. By concentrating on colours, you can bring them alive in you: they help you develop virtues related to them and they support you in your endeavours. Remember to use the means nature offers you to connect with the spiritual world. Colours are one of those means. Take the colour blue for example- it is the colour of peace and truth. From time to time, immerse yourself in this colour. Imagine you are surrounded by blue rays and feel them permeate you: little by little, you will feel a deep sense of peace overcome you. This deep peace will at last silence your heart and intellect and will help you free yourself from your greed, prejudice and bias, and everything will become clearer to you. Heaven is reflected in your soul as if on the surface of a still lake, and with this deep sense of peace you will contemplate truth. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Daily Meditations

Peace- the flower of unity and love

Heaven never ceases sending harmonious currents to the earth in an effort to lead human beings toward unity. Those who are ready to receive these currents must wait no longer; they must begin to work. The day they achieve this unity will be the most beautiful moment in human history. What changes there will be when the world becomes one family! All the billions that are being spent uselessly on arms and espionage will be used for everyone’s education and wellbeing. At the moment, unfortunately, we still believe these ideas to be unworkable. People say: ‘Utopia… so what?’ But it is this utopia alone that can save humanity. Human beings can do what they will, they may consider all kinds of solutions, but there is only one: whatever the difficulties, whatever the efforts required, we must work ceaselessly to create unity. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov  Daily Meditations These words from the master call to my mind the inspiring words and example of Mahatma Ghandi. They were set to music beautifully by Karl Jenkins in ‘The Peacemakers’: I offer you peace …

War of love between the stars

War will never disappear entirely but it will be a different kind of war. One day, it will be a war of love, with human beings sending each other rays of love, like the stars. The more we evolve, the more the exchanges between us will be filled with light and love, like the exchanges between the constellations and the stars. When I was very young in Bulgaria, I used to sleep under the stars at night on the mountain of Rila, at 2,000 or 2,500 metres of altitude. Sometimes the snow would fall during the night and I would wake up entirely covered in snow! Ah, it was wonderful! I would go to sleep staring at the stars. That is how I discovered that the stars fight each other continually with light, and that one day humans would do the same thing with rays of love, with colors. Cosmic Intelligence will never suppress the human desire to fight, although it will be a different kind of war, with no cannons and no bombs, but …

Finding inner peace

Peace, as most people understand it, is not true peace. Even when the problems and anxieties which trouble you vanish for a few minutes or a few hours, this is not true peace for it does not last. Once true peace dwells in you, nothing can ever dislodge it again. Yes, peace is not a question of feeling at ease, of being calm and carefree for a few minutes, it is something much more profound and much more precious. Peace is a result of perfect inner harmony… When all the instruments in an orchestra are perfectly tuned to the same pitch, when all the musicians have already practiced under their conductor and learned to know, love and obey him, then they can produce extraordinarily harmonious music. And in a human being, peace is this harmony, this perfect accord that reigns amongst all the various elements, forces, functions, thoughts, feelings and actions. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov   The Egregor of the Dove: the Reign of Peace   So, peace is born of harmony, of an absolute accord …
