A Word About Discussions
A good discussion needs some conflict to get it going. Warmth is also tension, and too much spoils the food. A female touch of kindness is welcome, but so is the strength and power of the male. Each has to take on the challenge of truth, sincerity, kindness, boldness, or forgiveness, each in turn and at the right time. It is the dance, one should not be afraid of it. But the skill is owned by the artist, where others will fail and must fail for lack of temperament and skill. I like to think like this: the greater the tension, the better is the feeling which comes from resolution. It helps in all tight situations - and it's message is this: keep working towards the goal of resolution, keep your heart alive and speak what is there, and feel how wonderful everyone will feel when the Whole-ness of Spirit has resolved the parts.
If you go far enough in your Western World of thinking,
You come to the Dawn of the New Day,
and can already see the opening buds of the morning flowers....
Ancient and Modern Initiation
The student asked: What is the difference between the two?
The main difference is that modern man has a power of thought today that wasn't present in ancient times. And this power of thought will continue to increase in strength and power.
The so-called black magic of ancient times too has changed as well. Previously it had to do with pro-creativity, today it has to do with the fertilizing power of thoughts in the soul. Everything is now shifted to focus on the consciousness.

Angel of Peace
May the spirit peace and inner tranquility be with you today and seed your dreams tonight for a better tomorrow
Be and Share
Today is a Day of beautiful love...be and share!
Treason, as between men, is considered worse than theft;for even thieves despise it. He who betrays his country is considered fit for death.
But I tell you:he who betrays his own soul has no longer any link with honesty, and there is nothing sure concerning him, except that he will go from bad to worse. And evil grows little by little; he who is faithless in small things will ultimately lose all honor.
Therefore, strive eternally to keep faith, not telling secrets nor inquiring uninvited into those of others; for the Great Offense is grounded on an infinite variety of little ones -- exactly as Great Merit is the total of innumerable acts of self-control.

From the Book of the Sayings of the Wise
"But I will tell you another thing, son of the all glorious Maia and Zeus who holds the aegis luck bringing genius of the Gods. There are certain Holy Ones, three sisters, born of a virgin with winged heads besprinkled with white meal, and they dwell under a ridge of Parnassus. These are the teachers of Divination apart from me....From their home they fly now here, now there, feeding on honey-comb and bringing all things to pass. And when they are inspired through eating yellow honey, they are willing to speak truth; but if they be deprived of the gods' sweet food, they speak falsely, as they swarm in and out of each other. "
Homeric Hymn 4, from line 550, translation by Hugh
