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.

Aetheric Thinking...

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?

Teacher:

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.

Being True

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 TSIANG SAMDUP. "

Beloved

When my Beloved appears,
With what eye do I see Him?
With His eye, not with mine,
For none sees Him except Himself.
O Marvel! a garden amidst the flames.
My heart has become capable of every form:
it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,
and a temple for idols and the pilgrim's Kaa'ba,
and the tables of the Torah and the book of the Quran.
I follow the religion of Love: whatever way Love's camels take,
that is my religion and my faith."
Ibn Arabi

They shall heal their neighbor, their community and our planet.
They shall know no fear and feel no shame and their witness shall prevail over all odds.
It has no secret, no initiation, save that of true understanding of the power of love and that, if we want it to be so, the world will change, but only if we want to change.
All those who belong, belong; they belong to the church of love.

Cathar Church Declaration of 1012

Creation of Soul of Light

The power of learning spiritual knowledge is to be able to know the soul in the light or darkness, as these are the substances the soul weaves around itself.

Just as the doctor of today must know how to navigate inside the living body in order to preserve the integrity of the body, so the soul too has an even greater and more delicate mystery to understand. 

Thoughts in relationship to time, and subtle substance changes of atmosphere, heat and cold and atmospheric pressures, speak another language to the student of the spirit.  It is this path of warmth and light in the cosmos that leads to the living spirit.

For the student of the spirit, his will is to seek and find the living spirit in and through nature. Only the light and the darkness of the world can reveal the truths of the soul in this living way. It is the greatest task set before the students. In accomplishments, the soul sheds layers upon layers of its thickened nature.  It must understand these as they fade in the cosmic world.

Knowledge becomes love.  The riddle is answered with 'how?'.

As the student must come to ponder the creation of man, he sees there the mystery of will and desire for creation. And like a candle made by a candle maker for the light it holds, so the souls of men are formed by the unknown and unseen power that creates it. But to know the creator of the candle, is the greatest of all mysteries to behold.
