Daily Meditation for New Year's Day 2016

Hundreds of years ago a shepherd in the mountains, was absent-mindedly making a small furrow in the ground with his stick. But then came rain, snow, frost, wind, sun… and gradually the small furrow deepened and widened to become the bed of a torrent. This is only an image, but it shows us that the same phenomenon occurs with humans. Every thought, every feeling is like a furrow drawn in their own inner earth, and all psychic and spiritual forces operating in space contribute to digging and expanding it. A new year begins today… Is it not the time to consciously draw a furrow in your soul? Concentrate on a divine thought, formulate a divine wish and live today in such a way that it that it becomes imprinted in you. Celestial powers will be alerted and they will support you in your efforts. Each day they will be there to tell you, ‘Remember, the first day of the year you made a furrow, one that was uninterrupted and deep.’ And if you listen, if …

New Year's Eve Meditation

“Tomorrow a new year begins, and you can begin to make ready for it consciously by focusing on a goal: a quality you want to develop, a bad habit you want to lose, a project you want to carry out for the glory of God. With this thought, this wish, it is as if you are laying the first stone, and then all the luminous nature spirits will contribute their help, so that you can realize your divine plan. These should be your thoughts on this last day of the year. Unfortunately, you won’t meet many people concerned with such things. Most are getting ready to indulge in all kinds of excess. Can you be surprised, then, if the year goes badly for them? So you at least, who are disciples of the divine school, do your best to see in the new year with the light as your focus.” … “If you want the new year to be truly new for you, think of it as a living, wealthy being that can bring you …

Universal Spirit lives in all people

“When I’m travelling and I arrive in a new town and see great crowds of people in the streets, I think of how these men and women each have their own life, their own history, their problems to resolve, their suffering and their loves, and of how there is a Being that sustains them all because it lives within them. If you also tried to have this thought from time to time, you would broaden your field of awareness; you would discover new regions where you would come into contact with higher entities. Instead of troubling yourself with all sorts of useless or futile concerns, which do nothing but weaken you, concentrate on the universal Spirit, on the heavenly Father who created us, who carries and sustains us and lives in all his creatures. In this way, you will escape the burden of everyday existence, and you will feel the connection between your earthly self and your heavenly self begin to be restored.”  Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov Daily Meditations More on universal consciousness- True consciousness – …

Christmas Day Meditation

“The birth of Jesus was a historical event of major importance. But if all that was needed was for Jesus to be born two thousand years ago, why has the kingdom of God not yet come on earth? Wars, misfortunes, illness – all that should have disappeared… True disciples know that the Christ is born into the world on Christmas eve in the form of light, warmth and life, and they prepare the right conditions for the divine Child to also be born within themselves. Yes, we can read the story of the birth of Jesus and sing  ‘The Christ Child is born’ however many times we like, but unless the Christ is born in us there will be no point. It is now up to each person to have the desire to bring about Christ’s birth within their soul and to become like him, so that the earth may become inhabited by Christs! This is what Jesus asked of us when he said, ‘The one who believes in me will also do the works …

Daily Meditation Christmas Eve

“Daily life is difficult, the source of much tension; in families, at work and in society, people have to hold so much of their energy in check just to be able to bear all the demands on them and to cope! And every now and then, these energies need to be released. Initiates understood this well. That is why, as far back as you can go, they instituted popular festivals at certain times of the year corresponding to specific configurations in astronomy. Even Christian festivals, for the most part, are simply relics of ancient pagan festivals in a different form and with a different meaning. As the festivals draw nearer, festivities are organised: people collect together food, and they prepare decorations and special clothes or even fancy dress. But the initiates had another purpose as well for these festivals. They wanted to encourage people to explore the energies in the subtler realms so as to regenerate and vivify their heart and soul. In this atmosphere of joyous and beneficial exchanges, beings of light come to …
