How Shall We Redeem Ourselves?



Anne Bronté, 1820-1849, was the daughter of a poor Irish clergyman in the Church of England. She is likely to have been brought up on a diet of Christian teachings and therefore believed that every word of them is quite literally true. That’s why in ‘The Tenant of Wildfell Hall’ she wrote: ‘Not for ever,’ I exclaimed, ‘only till he has paid the uttermost farthing, for if any man’s work abide not the fire, he shall suffer loss; yet himself shall be saved, but so as by fire. And He that is able to subdue all things to Himself will have all men to be saved, and will in the fullness of time have gathered together in one all things in Christ Jesus, who tasted death for every man, and in whom God reconcile all things to Himself, whether they be things in Earth or things in Heaven.’

To help her make her point the author gathered a whole set of nuggets from the Jesus legend. Here are four of them and each one is a hidden reference to the Universal law of Karma * and reincarnation. Matthew 5:26 ‘Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.’ 1 Corinthians 3:13 ‘Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.’ Philippians 3:21 ‘Who will reform the body of our lowness, made like to the body of his glory, according to the operation whereby also he is able to subdue all things unto himself.’ 1 Corinthians 3:13 ‘Every man’s work will be made clear in that day, because it will be tested by fire; and the fire itself will make clear the quality of every man’s work.’

What a long way we have spiritually come in the relatively short time of Anne’s wrote the above words. Ever more of us are becoming aware that the only one who can save and redeem us is we ourselves and the only way it can be brought about is through reconnecting with our Highest or God Self. Her quotes from the Bible undoubtedly represented Anne’s truth, while to me they are speaking of the higher esoteric meaning which, as usual, is hidden behind the surface words. What they are saying is about God’s laws, in particular the law of Karma * or of cause and effect, which ensures that every single one of our bad thoughts, words and deeds has to be made good by us in our earthly existence. I don’t think it should be understood as literally being paid for to the uttermost farthing. But the memories of every one of them, good, bad and indifferent, are stored in the Akashic Records * as well as the memory bank of our soul.

These recollections accompany us into every new lifetime and the very cells of our new physical bodies contain their impressions. In the final analysis, that is where the true cause of any illnesses and afflictions we may have to deal with in our present lifetime can be found. Anything that has to be endured in earthly life by anyone is the result of the wheels of fortune or misfortune, as the case may be, we ourselves once set in motion, sometimes many lifetimes ago. During the initial stages of our earthly education, which is compulsory for everyone, it was our own thoughts, words and actions that moved us ever further away more from our true higher or God nature. Any pain we have to go through is the cleansing fire that is part of paying our debts towards those we hurt and harmed in other lifetimes and ultimately God. Throughout the ages this emptying out process has been known by those who before us walked the road back home into the oneness with God.

Patiently putting up with our suffering creates the necessary balance in the great scheme and plan of life, and cleanses our spirit and soul. Through this emptying out our consciousness is cleansed of the debris of long outdated old beliefs, prejudices and superstitions, which we once thought of as true. This creates space for fresh knowledge and the understanding that grows from it when we apply it to our daily encounters. This is the only way it can become our property that accompanies us into future lifetimes and helps us to cope with them more easily.

In the process of paying our karmic debts to the full, every aspect of our nature heals: mind and body, spirit and soul. When we finally surrender everything we have and are into the loving hands of God and the Angels, we are one of the lambs of God who willingly follows the instructions that are intuitively received from the highest levels of life. Through walking the predestined pathway of a spiritual Master, each one of us eventually evolves into a Christed one in their own right. The Jesus legend is a portrayal of the whole development.

Fire is the cleansing, purifying and healing power of God’s creative force. It alone can and does bring to earthly life the healing and gradual dissolving of the pain that has accumulated down the ages in our individual and collective soul and its memories that are stored in the cells of every human physical body and that of the Earth. Only when our human mind and body, spirit and soul have been purified and sufficiently cleansed of the past are our energies right for fully and consciously being re-united with those of God. This is the only authority that can clear us of the misdemeanours and sins we committed in our earthly existence in any one of our lifetimes, including the present one. ‘Lord God, Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world. Have mercy on us!’ These words can only be true when one grasps who the lamb of God is, namely you and I. Each one of us in their own right has to freely and willingly turn into a lamb of God and patiently endure whatever suffering we have created for ourselves in previous lifetimes and this one. This is an inner experience that could never be brought about through outside forces like the legendary Jesus.

The higher vehicles or bodies of every one of us are probably in need of being cleansed and purified. We are bound to have gathered into them many things that are now hindering and obstruction the spiritual vision and understanding we are in this life to seek. That’s why episodes of trouble, sickness and suffering have to be endured presently by so many. Our earthly lessons could include having to cope with being born into a crippled body or getting involved in great tragedies. To create the necessary balance in their spiritual bankbook, some may even have to commit a crime. Wise ones remind themselves that such things always come about through someone’s own choices. This is done in the hope that their experiences will prepare their spirit and soul for being purged and purified through the inflow of the healing energies of the Highest, so that later on they become capable of acting as one of its transmitter/receiver stations through which these precious energies can flow into our world.

And that’s why wise ones refuse to sit in judgement * over anyone. The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in the Lodge’s calendar September 2012: ‘Before any kind of new growth and building can take place anywhere in the whole of Creation, there first has to be a clearing of the land. This requires ploughing the Earth and cleansing the soil. The same is true for every human being. As soon as the physical conditions surrounding one of them have served their predestined purpose, they are cleared away. Yet, in truth nothing ever dies, neither the spirit and soul that dwells inside every physical body nor the atoms of that body when it is left behind in earthly life. The atoms also merely change their form and from the dust and ashes left behind at every funeral, whichever way it takes place, new life is created.’

Could Astrology Be For You?



If your reaction to the word astrology is one of ‘Ah, horoscopes! Fortunetelling!’, you are wasting your time here. But should you be looking for a safe and reliable instrument for getting to know yourself and others more intimately, please read on. Like life in the whole of Creation, everything to do with astrology consists of cycles within cycles and wheels within wheels and is basically very simple, like all truly great ideas. One of the finest gifts the Universe can bestow us is simplicity. For my liking that is the best quality anyone can possess and if you, like me, love to keep things as uncomplicated as possible, then the Divine science could be just the thing for you.

One of humankind’s main troubles is that in our role as earthlings we frequently see complications when in truth there aren’t any. If need be, we invent some where there weren’t any before. Astrology is no exception. Yet, basically everything about it is very straight forward. The only thing one has to do for studying it is starting in one small corner, the same as in any other field of learning. It’s unwise to stand before an immense topic like astrology and gaze upon it admiringly, thinking: ‘I could never get to grips with that!’ Refuse to give in to feelings of that nature. Start with lesson one, the way I once did.

Astrology is an intuitive art and if you persevere, it will not take long until you begin to notice how your inner guidance provides you with fresh insights into the theme before you to assist you with your studies. As your understanding of human nature and life increases, your consciousness opens up and expands. In case you enjoy finding out new things and learning as much as I do, there could be no finer field of endeavour for you. If you keep on learning about astrology until the end of your earthly days, I guarantee that you will never stop discovering something new and surprising about it. You don’t have to take my word for it. Stick your toes into the water and see for yourself.

To get you going, how about becoming your own astrologer in D.I.Y. fashion? If that sounds interesting, please follow the link at the end of this chapter. You might like to first delve into the interpretations of your own Sun sign and then the ones of the people around you. See for yourself how revealing each one of my analyses is and how it can give you valuable pointers about everyone’s predestined pathway for their present lifetime. If you have sufficient time and study my interpretations of all the Sun signs, you will notice that each one of them contains a great deal that is valid for everybody. As you move through them, try to apply that which you are gleaning first to yourself and then to those around you. You will be amazed about your discoveries. Most of all, never forget to have fun. That, my dear friend, is as important a part as any on the healing journey of a thousand miles of our present lifetime.

Study the Sun signs and discover for yourself how the stars can and do show the way of moving from being a less evolved soul, i.e. an unaware one, into a wise one and a healer, someone who has woken up to their true identity. You are sure to succeed, if you keep on with your efforts at avoiding to act out the negative qualities of your Sun sign and instead endeavour to bring forth and develop its higher and highest manifestations.

Should you still be functioning more on the negative than on the positive aspects of your Sun sign, take heart. Everybody initially automatically and unconsciously tends to act out the lower characteristics of their Sun sign, without even knowing that this is what we are doing. It is true that, for as long as we are unaware of how the energies of the stars influence all life on the Earth including us, we are what is commonly known as being ‘ruled by the stars’. It is not only possible but necessary to move away from this.

Awareness, as ever, is the key for unlocking the door of this predicament. Becoming familiar with the negative and positive aspects of our Sun sign enables us to take charge and start making an effort at changing our character through bringing forth the positive higher qualities of our planetary signs. This is how every one of us can beneficially steer the course of their destiny. Life does not work like the nursery rhyme ‘Where are you going, my pretty maid?’ when she replies: ‘My face is my fortune, Sir.’ The look of our face makes no difference to anything, but our character really is our fortune. It alone can influence the flow of our future the way we wish it to run. And whenever we counteract our negative tendencies we empower ourselves and become wise ones, who are no longer ‘ruled by their stars’ and never will be again.

I believe that most of our behaviour patterns were not developed in the course of our present lifetime. The majority of them we brought with us from previous ones and that particularly applies to the deeply ingrained ones that can be highly reluctant to change. When in doubt about anything, turn to your inner teacher, the wise one or living God within, to show you ways of building up your strengths some more and how you can turn your weaknesses into strengths. That indeed is how they are meant to be dealt with. You are not likely to instantly recognise any changes in yourself. Don’t let this discourage you. With the passing of time, you will be able to observe how you are approaching life and those around you in a more positive and constructive manner. Through this change in your energies, they are likely to change their behaviour towards you.

Unravelling The Knots Of Time



Through a better understanding of the processes of life in general astrology can show us a useful and quite magical way for undoing the knots of time, i.e. of Karma, in our own lives and beneficially influence that of those around us. The Divine science has the power of shedding much light onto the mysteries of life behind the scenes in the background of our earthly existence. Any wisdom and knowledge we find in this way needs to be applied liberally to those around us. Don’t be shy! Practise on everybody and when they tire of hearing you going on about astrology, continue do so quietly in your mind.

The Divine science allows us to view life through the eyes of God. This makes it a great deal easier to meet everybody we encounter with kindness and compassion for their suffering and that of all God’s creatures. Looking at our world this way raises us above the emotional level and stops us from constantly stumbling over and taking offence at people’s idiosyncrasies, their likes and dislikes, as well as preferences and inclinations – positive and negative ones alike. Everybody displays them and there is no harm in that because each one is an important part of our own and other people’s predestined and self-chosen pathway for their present lifetime and the special lessons this brings with it.

Being aware of these things can help to overcome much of the irritation and frustration that are inevitable in human relationships. In particular this applies to our nearest and dearest when occasionally their behaviour is less than satisfactory, which it can be quite frequently, if we are honest with ourselves. The reason for this is that the difficulties they are encountering are most certainly of karmic origin, the same as ours. Nowhere is there more karma to be found than in families. Small wonder then that those relationships are frequently our most fraught and difficult ones. All unresolved problems and issues that are left behind at the end of any given lifetime, we bring with us into each new one, in the hope of resolving them this time round, once and for all.

If you have the feeling that this is the case with some of your relationships, do not despair. Through new understanding and forgiveness the Universe places the tools for redemption, reconciliation and healing into everybody’s own hands. We are here to improve every one of our human relationships and heal them. Especially the most difficult and fraught ones are waiting to be worked on and transformed into spiritual friendships of a higher nature. That’s the only way of releasing and letting go of each other, when the moment for doing so has come. Both parties need to free themselves, so that each can get on with pursuing its own individual evolutionary pathway, which may well lead them into totally different areas of interest from each other.

Each one has been granted the gift of another lifetime at this very special time so we can liberate ourselves from those with whom we have negative karmic ties. They are of an emotional nature and it is essential for the everybody’s spiritual progress that we should no longer be hampered by the chains and shackles of our unfulfilled karmic obligations and unpaid debts that act like steel ropes that could have kept us tied us to each other for a great many lifetimes.

This is where astrology comes into its own. Your studies of this subject will be greatly enhanced by quietly observing everything that is in your life through the eyes of an astrologer. Make mental notes and take delight in discovering how surprisingly much of everybody’s behaviour is actually governed by the Sun sign they were born into. The wisdom gained from this can provide us with the wings we need to lift ourselves above earthly life into the realms of humankind’s eternal home and its higher spiritual nature. With the passing of time, with the help of our own intuitive insights and observations these wings are sure to grow ever more powerful. That is the most essential requirement for the spiritual progress we are in this life to seek.

It is impossible to fly on someone else’s wings and regardless of how elevated and revered a teacher may some day cross our path, there is no replacement for doing for ourselves and gazing deeply into the mirror of the self. Having reached this point of our development, nothing but utter honesty with ourselves and others is good enough. And when we discover where our own thinking and behaviour patterns are in need of a good spring cleaning, we feel the urge to start sweeping in front of our own inner doors and tidying up our consciousness. As ever, first healer heal thy self!

The Comedy Of Life



Hippocrates ca. 460–377 B.C. wrote: ‘Life is a comedy for those who think and a tragedy for those who feel.’ I believe that, by approaching our existence from a different perspective, it can be transformed by us into something joyous and yes, a comedy – a comedy of errors, namely those of failing to understand the higher purpose of our earthly life. Everybody’s view of our world differs at least slightly from that of any other. This is because for each one of us it is based on the memories of the experiences we gathered in the course of many lifetimes, which are stored in our soul. As each one’s pathway up to now has varied from all others, it is not surprising that our world views vary such a lot.

The principle of changing our perception of our world as nothing but a tragedy and a vale of tears into a spectacle one can at least smile about, applies to everybody including those who have been involved in disasters and catastrophes, for example the two World Wars. To see theses things in a different light, the only thing that’s required from us is a renewed understanding of the purpose and meaning of our earthly existence and why anything in our world ever occurs, namely for Karmic reasons. *

When we begin to tune the receiver/transmitter station of our earthly mind into the frequencies of the highest levels of life that form the spiritual background of our earthly existence, with the passing of time one slowly finds out ever more about the wise higher purpose it fulfils.

God and the Angels have always been speaking to our world with the help of symbolisms and metaphors that are hiding the esoteric truth hidden behind the surface words of the religions. One of the oldest ones is the symbol of the cross *, which represents humankind’s earthly existence and its suffering. The cross we are all carrying on our shoulders is the earthly personality which, in the course of many lifetimes has been created by none other than us. Jesus is a metaphor for our higher nature who is carrying the cross of its earthly personality on his shoulders. How about taking the cross on our own back and by seriously getting to work of improving it. But how can anyone do that for as long as we don’t not know enough about it? This is especially true for our less likeable unpleasant characteristics. Because everybody has the very best as well as the worst within, we all have them. It’s just that for a long time we project them onto others, when in truth they are our own *. That’s where astrology can be particularly helpful.

It takes a long time until we grasp that the Universal laws see to it that everything we send into our world, in thoughts, words and deeds, unerringly finds its way back to its sender. When this has dawned on us at last and someone causes us harm, the need for dwelling on hateful and destructive thoughts of revenge gradually goes from us. This is replaced by feelings of wanting to forgive them and praying that their trespasses should also be forgiven by the Highest forces of life. It is essential for our mental, spiritual and physical well-being that we lift them and us in this manner above the emotional planes of our earthly existence.

Something similar happens when we begin to observe the people in our environment through the window of astrology. Using it for the purpose of fortune telling has never appealed to me. Yet, you can count me in any time when it comes to combining astrology with psychology, because in the right hands both together can be turned into a powerful healing instrument. Any wisdom that is gained in this way needs to be shared with others. They too can then begin with their own healing journey of a thousand miles that commences with a better understanding of the higher purpose and meaning of humankind’s existence and quite naturally leads us into reconnecting with God and our oneness with every lifeform.

I believe that nobody could place a finer gift from the Universe into people’s hands than my kind of astrology. So why not stick your toes into the water and have a go at being your own astrologer *? If you do, I guarantee you that it won’t take long until you discover for yourself how amazingly versatile and flexible the Divine science is. Like me, you will be amazed in how many ways it can be used for finding a constantly improving understanding of practically every aspect of life. For example, getting in touch with our innermost motivations and learning about our potential. The aspects the planets form with each other in our birthchart are excellent indicators of where our credits and debts are in the karmic ledger of life. And so on and so forth.

All Is Movement And Constant Changes



The creative processes are relentlessly at work. Life at all times is evolving, moving forwards and upwards in vast spirals onto ever higher evolutionary levels. We and our world are carried along with this towards increasingly uplifting and beautiful experiences. Nothing in the whole of Creation ever stands still, not even for the briefest of moments. The Sun in the sky above us is a good example of this. Without ever stopping in its orbit it constantly radiates its life-giving and sustaining love and warmth to Mother Earth herself and everything she holds in her loving embrace. The same is true for the whole of God’s Creation. Everything is wheels within wheels, and cycles within cycles. Everything is moving and all things and conditions are constantly changing with it. Astrology reflects this.

Some of the components of the planets of our solar system are sometimes turning at different speeds. Good examples of this are the Sun and Jupiter. Not all their latitudes are turning at the same rate – some are dragged along behind, some may overlap. Our Sun spins round its own axis and one of its full turns takes about twenty-five to twenty-seven days, the duration is variable. Our Sun is part of the Milky Way, our galaxy. This too is moving. We orbit the hub of the Milky Way and one of its circuits takes about two hundred and twenty million years. Our solar system is presently moving towards the galaxy cluster Virgo, at the breathtaking speed of one million miles per hour! It needs bearing in mind that all scientific information about space and planetary matters also are constantly revised and updated, as our scientist gain more understanding.

Just imagine! Our galaxy is but one of two hundred thousand million galaxies. Most of them consist of at least one hundred thousand million stars or more and our Sun is but one of them. There are we, in a distant corner of the immensity of the Universe, safe and sound on our small planet, the beautiful treasure and jewel Earth. Guided and protected by our Great Father/Mother, their only born Son, the Universal Christ and the Angels. Cared for and nurtured by Mother Earth and her Angels and warmed and loved by Father Sun. Mother Earth and Father Sun are physical and spiritual manifestations of the Great Father/Mother, the Creator, designer and architect of all life. Standing in front of all that, which human soul does not want to go down on its knees and exclaim:

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
I see the stars; I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy power throughout the Universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, my Saviour, God to Thee:
‘How great Thou art! How great Thou art!’

When I see how You hold millions and millions and millions of worlds safely in Your loving hands, there grows within me a new perception of how great you really are, so much greater than anyone of us could ever have dreamed! Realising Your infinite and unconditional love is for each one of us, no matter how small and insignificant our present existence may appear to us, our world and all worlds, my heart flows over and my soul cannot help singing to You, my Saviour God: ‘How great You are. how wonderful and magnificent!’

‘I will praise Thee, because of the wonders which Thou hast done. Marvellous are Thy works and that my soul knows right well.’ Psalm 139:14

White Eagle Calendar September 2012: ‘Look always for the spirit behind or within the form. Realise it in the air you breathe and the water you drink and bathe in. See it in the sky, in the winds and the air. See it in the fire – see the little fire spirits. Sense it in the beauty of the plants, flowers and fruits. This creates harmony in yourselves and beauty in your lives, for you will have realms revealed to you that you did not know or dream of before.’

Incidentally, the fact that our solar system is presently moving towards the galaxy cluster Virgo seems to me of particular interest for our world and the healing work we are all involved in. At the beginning of the Age of Aquarius and bearing in mind that Virgo is the teaching and healing sign of the zodiac, our whole world is currently taking part in a learning and healing experience of truly Cosmic proportions. All the help in the Universe is waiting to be called upon by us for each doing their own share of bringing our new and peaceful world into being. God and the Angels will safely guide and protect us and our world through any inner and outer cleansing and healing process that may be required. Praise and thanks be to them that the time for this has come, at long last. And as ever, astrology provides us with an instrument for a better understanding of what is happening to us and our world.

The Magic Of Music



I am the Great Mother of all life
And the soul of the Universe.
Music is My voice that tells you about
The harmonies of the Heavenly Fields
On the highest levels of life, where I dwell.
It brings them to earthly life where
I provide poets and composers with ideas.
With their help I communicate with you.
The magic of My music captivates
Human souls and their earthly senses.
Making and listening to certain types of music
Lifts you into My realms.

I inspire the making of instruments
And the musicians who use them.
I encourage them to aim for
Ever better sounds,
To please themselves and Me.
I am Mistress and servant alike,
Of those on the physical plane of life,
As well as the ones they believe to be dead,
Who in truth are alive and well in
The spirit world, your true home.
I am part of the Eternal Spirit and
My music responds to the requirements
Of anyone taking part in earthly life.
In days gone by I accompanied you into battle
And to this day into ballrooms and dance halls.
My vibrations have the power to make humankind
Rejoice and Laugh, weep and mourns,
Wonder and worship.

My music tells stories of love and hate,
Of souls condemned and redeemed.
It is the incense on which your prayers take wings
And fly into My realms.
It’s in the smoke that falls over battlefields,
Where people are dying and thinking of Me.
It comfort them when they have to find out,
Each through their own experiences,
That there is no glory in wars,
Only suffering and pain, blood and sweat,
Dirt and tears for themselves
And also their loved ones at home.

My music reaches and comforts human spirits and souls
When their earthly selves are wading
Through the depths of depression and despair.
It opens human hearts to love
And is as much present and at home
On marriage altars, christening fonts and funerals.
It’s with you when you stand at the open graves
Of those who have been called home
Into the world of light.
It brings comfort and healing
To the ones left behind.

Music is an aspect of the feminine part
Of the Great Father of all life.
I am the Goddess and He is My masculine counterpart.
I serve Him and the whole of our Creation.
Before Me all are equals.
My music easily makes slaves
Out of Kings and their servants alike.
In the natural world of the school of earthly life
It speaks to you through the birds of the air,
The insects in the fields,
The crashing of waves on ocean shores,
And the wind sighing in the trees.
Once you have become aware of My presence,
You can perceive Me anywhere,
Even above the chatter of voices and
The clatter of wheels on city streets.

All life is My family and I am the parent of the best
As well as the worst that is in humankind.
They are part of Me and like Me
Each one of you is an instrument
That serves the Divine aspects of life.
You are like Me and I am like you.
I am one facet of the Holy Trinity
Of the Universal Life Force
That is known to many of you as God,
And so are you.

During your race’s most
Traumatic experiences My music never leaves you.
Each time one of you has been wounded
In mind and body, spirit and soul,
I bring comfort and healing.
I am the muse behind all works of art.
I enjoy expressing and experiencing Myself through you.
I am the inspiration behind the work
Of your world’s writers of poetry and prose,
As well as your composers.
The quality of what each one of them produces
Depends on which evolutionary level an individual has reached.
This decides into which one of My many frequencies
They can tune the receiver/transmitter station
Of their earthly minds.

And no matter what ever happened in earthly life,
I have always accompanied you,
Giving wings to your minds,
Flight to your imagination
And breathing life and a touch of beauty
Into everything you do.

Listen to Me in the song of birds.
It is a music that stirs a happy chord
In human hearts and souls.
Birdsong can lift you into My world, the realms of spirit,
But do not listen with your mind alone.
Feel the chord this music strikes in your heart.
It has the power of lifting you above the conditions
Of your earthly existence.
It gives you wings that enable you to fly like a bird
And, at least for a time, releases you
From that which is troubling you.

Birdsong lifts you into My heart and
Makes yours respond with feelings of happiness.
Regardless of how anxious and frightened you may feel
About the things that are happening in the world around you,
Whenever you allow yourself to be carried away
By music whose vibrations resonate with
Your heart and soul, you know happiness and
Each time you listen to it,
Your inner faith and trust
In the goodness of life increases.

Birds belong to the Air element.
They are My messengers who are telling you
That your spirit is part of the same realm
And in truth is as free as the birds are.
Try it out for yourself and observe how
Your thoughts can instantly take you
Into the farthest and remotest corners
Of the whole of Creation.

Each time you proceed
With a song in your heart and soul that is
As pure and clear as that of the birds of your world,
There is nothing that will try to stop your spirit
From using its wings for lifting yourself and
The whole human race into the highest regions of life,
To receive and benefit from the blessing and healing
Rays of the Universal Christ.

Marriages



Good and happy marriages
Don’t fall from the Heavens or just happen.
They have to be created by two people
And in this process many seemingly small things
Can turn out to be the most important ones.
For example:

Never being too old to hold hands.
Remembering to say: ‘I love you’,
At least once each day.
Never going to sleep angry,
Sharing a sense of values and common objectives.
Standing together and facing the world by
Forming a circle of love not only around
Our own family but the whole of humankind.

Listening to the other one and responding to their needs.
Expressing that we appreciate them in thoughtful ways
That show that our gratitude is heartfelt and genuine.
Being willing to forgive and let bygones be bygones.
Creating the right atmosphere together,
Yet allowing each other sufficient space
For breathing and being who and what they truly are.
Growing independently of each other as well as together.
Making an effort to bring forth from within
That which is good, right and beautiful
Not only in contact with each other,
But also with everybody else.

Because we are magnetic beings,
We can only attract that which we ourselves are
And like always attracts like.
Making an effort at being the right partner is
Far more important than marrying the right person,
As this alone decides what kind of spouse
We shall attract in future lifetimes.

A Bit Of Advice



Amid the cares of daily life,
In spite of toil and business strife,
If you value the woman in your life,
Tell her so!

When your own days are dark and deeply blue,
Remember that she has her troubles, the same as you.
Show her that in spite of everything
Your love is true
And tell her so!

Don’t act as if she were past her prime,
And as if to please her would be a crime.
If ever you loved her, now’s the time
For telling her so!

Her love will return to you for each caress
A hundredfold in tenderness.
You know that hearts like hers were made to bless.
Well, tell her so!

You like to think that she’s all your own,
And that you are hers and hers alone.
Don’t wait to carve it on a stone.
Tell her so!

Do not allow her heart to grow cold,
For richer beauties for both of you are sure to unfold,
When ever more she’ll prove to you that
She’s worth more than her weight in gold.
Before it’s too late, dear Friend,
Tell her so!

P.S. Naturally, the above applies to wives telling their husbands, too.

Tell her she means the world to you and is precious beyond compare. Tell her from your heart and mean it, don’t just use empty words. Bring her flowers once in a while. Find out which ones she likes best and she will love you all the more for your thoughtfulness. The Universal laws ensure that any gesture of kindness we extend to anyone, not just our loved ones, is sure to return to us in many different ways.

Recipe For A Happy Home





Take two loving hearts and
Melt them into one.
Add lots of love,
Mix well with respect.

Add gentleness, laughter, joy,
Faith, hope and self-control.
Pour in gallons of understanding and
Don’t forget patience.

Blend in listening ears and
Allowing each other to grow and share.
Sprinkle generously with
Smiles, hugs and kisses.


Bake for a lifetime.

Yield: one happy home

Humankind's Quest For Power



The masculine part of the Divine Trinity is the will and power aspect of the God, the Great Father of all life. Its feminine counterpart is the love and wisdom of the Goddess, the Great Mother. Being a spark of the Divine, the same energies and qualities that are contained in them are also in us, women and men alike. Until the development of the masculine in our world, each one of us through their own experiences, finds an improved understanding of the higher purpose and meaning of humankind’s existence, the masculine characteristics manifest themselves as the man being right at all times. He resists bending his will and principles for anyone and has no time for compromises that would make life more bearable for everybody around him. He will have none of what to him, during the early part of his earthly education, he perceives as sheer nonsense.

The male of our species, during that stage of its development, has a strong urge to dominate and rule. Just about the only thing he is interested in is changing the world around him and its people to suit his will and adapts them to the whims of his lower animal desire nature. This leaves only one road open to him and that is the pursuit of power and personal gains. With his limited vision and understanding of earthly life he sees this as giving him the power to purchase what he wants. What could be simpler? When he has grown into a wise one, he too will know that each one of us can only learn from the consequences of the thoughts, words and actions they once sent into our world, when in due course the Universal laws are returning them to him in some form or another.

Alas, it takes many lifetimes until such things dawn on us. As a result, as young and inexperienced souls we do not hesitate to abuse any knowledge that the highest levels of life are making available to our world for the satisfying of the selfish desires and urges of our lower earthly nature. As a result, those who dream of ruling the world with godlike power, may then seek the means for building an atom bomb with which to threaten our world and if need be, using it. And so far that person has no idea that thought is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation and that it is God’s will that has the power to create matter from light and later destroy it again, if it so wishes.

There are two great rivers of consciousness in our world and each has its own thought waves that are part of it and are constantly feeding into it. The first one is the good, positive and constructive stream and the second is the evil, negative and destructive one. The first consists of the flow of energies from the higher evolved parts of Creation and the second that of the crude lower and unevolved one. For as long as someone chases the biggest illusion of our earthly existence, known as power, the energies of anything that person thinks and does automatically join the destructive and evil stream. The more wise ones who have woken up into the conscious awareness of their true nature feed into the evolved stream, the sooner that which is evil will be absorbed into it until every bit of it has gone.

But while we are still dreaming of gaining control and dominion over other countries and their people, maybe not only their bodies but also their spirits and souls, during the early phases of our development we are likely to threaten death and destruction to whatever gets in our way and tries to stop us. Should the attacked fail to oblige and obey, we do not hesitate to follow our threats up with the necessary actions. And even the tiniest step along this road not only creates more evil and spreads it far and wise. It also brings increasingly difficult Karma into being that eventually has to be redeemed – by none other than us.

Humankind’s past is a clear demonstration of how, without at least a degree of spiritual awareness, it is very easy to slip into a state of total disregard for our beautiful planet with all its life-forms. Unaware of the repercussions our actions are bound to have on ourselves, our life and the world around us, we have been stumbling from one natural catastrophe to another for long enough. That has been the way of the past and the patriarchy, but now the energies are right for ever more of us are now waking up from the nightmare all of us together have created and responding to the calls of the spirit world.

Yet, the present poor state of our world has been serving a wise higher purpose, the same as everything that happens anywhere in it. Only through observing how our environment is reacting to what we have been and in many parts still are doing. Making mistakes is the only way we can ever learn something. There will come a time when the last one of us will have evolved into a wise one who can recognise that in our physical existence there are only two types of true power available to us. The first one is making mistakes and being willing to learn from them. The second power is part of the first one and that is deciding how we wish to respond and react to the people and situations of our daily lives.

If we wish to evolve, as all lifeforms must, there is no point in keeping our learning to ourselves. It has to be shared with as many people as possible and these days there no longer is any need for standing and preaching from pulpits and soap boxes. Living by good example and one-to-one contacts is preferable. The more the awareness of everybody’s true nature and responsibility for ourselves and our world spreads, the more people are going to make genuine efforts at bringing forth their highest and best qualities, the more quickly the remaining evil in our world will be absorbed into that which is good, right and beautiful.

During past ages and without exception, everybody has been involved in creating evil, for the simple reason that we did not know any better. Besides, this has always been the only way human beings could be taught how to differentiate between the polar opposites of good and evil. But do we not owe it to ourselves and our whole world, to give of our best and steadfastly refuse to stoop to that which many of those around us insist on doing to this day? By using the God-given power of making wise and conscious decisions of always and without hesitation acting and reacting in a positive and constructive manner, we are taking our own destiny into our own hands and also that of our world. Each time does this, they are making a valuable contribution towards taking all of us forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life into the new golden age of the conscious knowledge of everybody’s oneness with God.
