Why is fire so beautiful?

“You have all watched a wood fire blazing in a hearth, but have you ever wondered exactly what happens to make all those dead, dark, twisted logs and branches so bright and beautiful? Isn’t it miraculous to see something that was so black being transformed into something so luminous? But you can do the same: whether you are at home in front of your own fireplace, or here, gathered round the Michaelmas fire at the Bonfin, you can use your imagination to burn your own dead branches- that is, all the instinctive tendencies of your animal nature. All that useless dead …

The whole of nature is alive…

“When initiates open their door in the morning, before doing anything else, they salute nature: the trees, the sky, and the sun, the day itself and the whole of creation. You will wonder why they do that and the answer is – that is how they put themselves in direct contact with the source of life. Yes, for nature responds to their greeting… How often have I gone out into my garden in the morning and greeted the angels of the four elements, the angels of fire, air, water and earth, and even the gnomes, nymphs, sylphs and salamanders. And …

All in nature is light

Many clairvoyants and mystics have perceived that everything we see around us in the natural world is actually composed of light. Here, the master describes an extraordinary experience: “Jacob Boehme, the great German mystic, earned his living as a cobbler. Suddenly one day he saw everything in a light so brilliant he could not bear it. Everything he laid eyes on seemed to be lit from within. No doubt he had earned that privilege in an earlier life! In a panic he ran out of his house and fled into the countryside, but there it was stronger still: everything, the …

Video -Love is a spring

The video I’m posting today contains more of Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov’s insights into the ‘Living Book of Nature’.. In early childhood, the master would search out the  little spring in the hills near his home in Varna, Bulgaria. The gentle murmur of its waters whispered  to him its secrets of life and love and he would spend hours listening to its message…

As well as providing a poetic example of the powers of love within our life, the sounds of a mountain spring, (or even, less poetically, water flowing from a tap!), are able to replenish our reserves of life force stored within the solar plexus. Just as it is possible to draw on life forces contained within a tree in a forest, listening to the water flowing from a spring or stream is capable of healing the disorders within the solar plexus that are caused by chaotic emotions. Here is a description of such an exercise from ‘A New Earth’:

The solar plexus is in contact with the entire cosmos and serves as a medium through which human beings communicate with the universe. It is a reservoir of life forces and is completely demagnetized and drained of all its reserves by disorderly emotions such as fear, anger, worry, doubt, promiscuity and chaotic thoughts and feelings. But if the solar plexus can be emptied, it can also be refilled and that is what you need to learn: how to replenish your solar plexus:

For example, you can strengthen it by watching and listening to running water- a fountain, a spring, or a waterfall, for instance. This method may seem insignificant, but it is very effective, for running water influences the solar plexus, which begins to get rid of harmful waste matter.

Of course, it is preferable to do this exercise in nature but even the water flowing from a tap has a beneficial effect  on the solar plexus. I even found that listening to the recorded sounds of a flowing stream had a very soothing influence and so I decided to upload the sounds so they can be heard as you look at the images.

For another exercise to recharge the solar plexus: You do not know what trees are

I hope you enjoyed the video. Thanks for reading- love to hear your comments.
