Consciousness

Standard

‘That which we are accustomed to calling ‘consciousness’ could be defined as the meeting place, the focal point at which all the representatives of our psychic and physical organisms have agreed to convene. (…) You can compare consciousness to a screen on which everything that takes place within a human being is projected. (…) It is essential, therefore, that human beings should be instructed in Initiatic Science so as to become masters of their own consciousness and not allow themselves to be swayed by all the forces and currents that flood to them from every corner of the world, nor even by those rising from their own subconscious. Every single thing that exists possesses some form of consciousness and, depending on its level of evolution, that consciousness is more or less distant from the body. The distance between physical reality & consciousness is greatest in the mineral realm, this is why the minerals are in a state of inertia. With plants, and even more so with animals, consciousness is closer to the physical being. And, the consciousness of a human being dwells within him, and this is why he is a thinking being.’

The heart & the intellect

Standard

‘The intellect works on the level of objective facts and it possesses fifty percent of the truth. And yet, considering its relatively greater importance, the heart, that is to say one’s feelings, what one actually experiences, should have more than fifty percent, because it is far more important to ‘live’ something rather than to learn it or read it in a book. Life is more important than learning. You can, of course, learn many things with your intellect, but they remain superficial and theoretical, they don’t touch the depth of your being. The things you learn intellectually are recorded in your brain, but on a superficial level, so they can be very quickly wiped out: one day they leave and you simply forget them. Look at all the things you have already forgotten about the books you have read. And yet, at one time they were recorded in your brain! Yes, but only on the surface. and whatever remains on the surface can very easily be erased. And now compare that book-learning with something that you actually experienced, something that you have felt and tasted deep down: whatever else happens to you in life this is something you can never forget. It is impossible. Why? Because it is recorded at a much deeper level, at the very heart of your being. (…) The secret of true intelligence is to understand, to feel and then to act in accordance with that broad, deep inner grasp of reality, with that deep feeling that cannot lie.’

The Wellsprings of Eternal Joy

Standard

An excerpt from the book, The Wellsprings of Eternal Joy, by Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov.

‘People who are truly intelligent and knowledgeable are bolder than others. They venture into regions most people never dare to approach, and it is the light that gives them this boldness.
The wiser and more enlightened you are, the more conscious you become of dangers and try not to provoke them, but at the same time you become bold, because you know you can trust what you know. Throughout life, human beings never lose their sense of danger, but this feeling evolves until it is only the fear of transgressing the divine order, of becoming a false note in the cosmic harmony. You may say that human beings aren’t important enough to destroy the cosmic harmony. Well, this is where you are wrong: it only takes a selfish action, a pointless or malicious word.’

‘Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame.’

~William Butler Yeats, “The Land of Heart’s Desire,” 1894

'Each one sees what he carries in his heart.'~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

‘Each one sees what he carries in his heart.’
~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Translation:

Rejoice for he who knows truth

Knows that bliss begets bliss

If you can drink of life’s bitterness and laugh in the face of adversity

In your soul no bitterness will remain.

Arise, for the beloved has arrived

He who has stolen a thousand hearts,

In drunken ecstasy, he has come with drum in hand

To lift the veil and reveal to you his song.

“Sometimes you think, ‘But what is the point of my praying and meditating and trying hard to live in light and purity? It doesn’t do anything for anyone; it isn’t even noticeable.’

Well, you are wrong! As long as you have made efforts to live in harmony and light, your presence alone brings something precious and of immeasurable influence. Even if you remain unknown, hidden, the love and light emanating from you are collected by invisible entities, which feed on them and may also carry them far away to save creatures crying for help. In his immense wisdom, the Lord has not allowed anything to be useless. When people gather to pray, how many spirits may come to draw on their quintessences, which they will use to heal the ills of humanity! Think about it, and your life will suddenly take on new meaning.”
