What's in a look? Language of the eyes

There will come a day when human beings will look at each other just as God looks at them. They will have no more evil thoughts for each other and everyone will give free expression to their love by means of their eyes and their smile. A glance is the language of God. God and the angels speak with their glances. No one in Heaven has time to stop and talk to you; the angels move through space at dizzying speeds greater than the speed of light, but as they pass they send you a glance, which, if you were conscious of it, you will remember for eternity, and which will heal, illuminate and save you. There is nothing in the world to compare with such a glance. This is the true language of heaven. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov  The Book of Divine Magic   ‘In the future, human beings will speak to each other only with their eyes, for the mouth is not yet capable of expressing our subtlest feelings. Just imagine, for instance, that …

Speaking nature's language

If you want to communicate with nature, the very least you can do is to accept the idea that she is alive and intelligent. Most human beings behave as though nature were dead, and the result is that their own inner life vibrates less powerfully and with less intensity and their God-given faculties of perception and sensation are gradually paralysed. ‘What is the point’, they ask, ‘of trying to communicate with rocks, plants or the sun? They’re not alive.’ With this attitude they dull the edge of their own faculties and put themselves in a straight-jacket of their own making. He who believes that nature is alive and intelligent, on the other hand, makes an effort not only to understand her language but, also, to find new means of expression that allow him to communicate with her…. The Creator has given us all kinds of means by which we can express our thoughts and desires and, even if we don’t receive any striking response, our words do have an effect on objects, on trees, on …

The brave heart of a snowdrop

The snowdrop, which flowers toward the end of winter, announces the imminent arrival of spring. Study it: with what willpower and courage it commands the snow and the earth, ‘Go on, get out of the way! I want to come up!’ And yet it is fragile, it has such tender, delicate petals, and the slightest thing can harm it. But the earth and the snow obey it, they make way for it, and it comes up and flowers. How does it make the earth open up? It possesses an irresistible force within the tiny stem that is starting to come up, and so it prevails. Because love always prevails! So, what about you? Do you not have greater means than a snowdrop at your disposal? Yes, you do. Only, you do not have enough faith and willpower to tell events, difficulties and limitations, ‘Go on, get out of the way! Let me through! I want to come up. I want to admire and praise the Creator!’ If you persevere like the snowdrop, you will always …

Easter- the mystery of death and rebirth

‘If you do not die, you shall not live’, said Jesus. The idea of resurrection, then, is linked with death and disintegration. If the seed does not die, it prevents the manifestation of the power of life buried in it. In a human being, it is the lower self that must die to leave room for the Spirit, the divine principle, which is then free to act and transform everything… The secret of the resurrection is before our eyes in Nature, waiting for us to understand it and decide to die consciously so as to become a new being…… ‘If you do not die, you shall not life…’ To die means to be melted into the Infinite whilst God takes the place vacated by you. God now reigns in you, no longer do you care about your life, you are willing to disappear, to have God take your place. If you really insist and keep on insisting He will be obliged to capitulate, because you are using the same methods he uses! God cannot say, …

Twin Souls

Every human being possesses a twin soul.  When the first human being leaped like a flame, a spark, from the bosom of his creator, he was two in one and each of his two halves was the perfect complement of the other. Later, these two halves became separated, each of them taking a different direction and evolving in its own way. During the course of their evolution they sometimes meet and, if they recognize each other, it is because each carries the image of the other in the depths of his being; each has put his seal on the other. Every human being, therefore, carries the portrait of his sister soul within him; it may be a hazy image but it is there, and this is why every man and woman comes to earth with the vague hope of finding a soul who will fulfil all his needs and with whom he may be united in total harmony.
