Mountain heights

Whenever we notice a distant mountain, we instinctively sense it represents a link between  heaven and earth. In most mythologies, a mountain is considered the dwelling place of the gods. Perhaps this is simply a symbolic representation, for the image of a mountaintop is always associated with the divine world. But it is also reality: mountain summits are antennae which establish  communication between heaven and earth.   Omraam Mikhael Aivanvov Far from the noise and disorder of human life, mountain summits are inhabited by extremely pure and powerful entities. It’s not always possible to climb to such heights to meet them, but whenever the opportunity arises, try to establish contact with them. Whenever you see a summit in the distance, think of holding your hand out towards it; greet the luminous entities that dwell there and ask them to draw you towards them so that you may enter their purity and light. By learning to connect  yourself to the summits of mountains, you will receive the very best nourishment for your soul and spirit. Omraam Mikhael …

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 stones, the trees, the flowers and the grass all seemed to be made of light and to speak to him out of that light! Many clairvoyants and mystics have had similar experiences and they know that all of Nature is alive and filled with light…. Gradually, as our perception of Nature changes, we change our destiny. If we consider Nature as something lifeless we diminish the life within us. If we realize that Nature is …

Finding God in light

Many years ago, when I was still a very young disciple of the master Peter Deunov, I asked him,’What is the best way to be close to God and develop my spiritual faculties and virtues?’ And he told me, ‘You must think constantly of light, concentrate on it, picture the whole universe bathed in light’. Well, I worked with this image of light for a very long time and learned a great deal from it. In reality, God is not light. God is far more than that. It’s not possible to know or even imagine God….  but since light is the first divine emanation, it contains all the qualities and virtues of God and one can know God only through light. So let me give you an exercise to do every day, several times a day…’   O  M A ‘As soon as you have a few spare minutes concentrate your thought on light, rest in light, melt into light, soak yourself in light and picture the whole universe bathed in that light. Little by …

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…  

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 when you do this you see them dancing and singing for joy. I send greetings to the trees, the rocks, and the wind, too. Try it yourself and you will feel that something inside you slips into place and becomes more harmonious, and that many elements of obscurity or misunderstanding fade from you simply because you have decided to salute living nature and the creatures that dwell within it. You might think, ‘What difference does …

Sacred Fire

“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 wood- into the fire with it! Fire is capable of converting everything into heat and light, and it is you who stand to gain; otherwise, what use would all those dead branches be to you? They can give you neither warmth not light because you lack the power to transform them. Give them to the fire, and it will give them back to you in the form of light and heat.” Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov”  A …
