Evolution towards flight

Dinosaurs were reptiles with four legs that lived on earth millions of years ago, and we now know that birds are the product of their evolution. Over time and with successive transformations, the front legs of these reptiles have become wings. Yes, as unbelievable as it may sound, dinosaurs are the ancestors of birds. How to interpret this evolution? Perhaps among these reptiles there were some who were more enterprising, more daring, more curious who wanted to break free, fleeing the ground. Some others followed suit, while others, lazy and stubborn, have continued to crawl. Take this interpretation as you want. Now transpose this phenomenon into the world of humans. Over the course of history there have always been the daring ones who wanted to open new paths, explore new lands. Some followed them, others refused to move, but it is thanks to the bold that humanity progresses. So it is up to each of us to decide whether we will continue to crawl along the ground or if we want to make an effort …

Radiant and powerful as the sun…

Learn to rally your thoughts, your desires and even all the tendencies of your lower nature to fulfil a sublime ideal. The sun can help you achieve this task of unification and harmonization. As you watch it rise in the morning, imagine that your consciousness is drawing closer to your own sun – your spirit, your higher self – to merge with it. When you have succeeded in pacifying and bringing together all the opposing forces that pull you about, to project them in a single direction, toward the light and the divine, you will become such a centre of power that you will be able to radiate out in all directions, like the sun. Those who have been able to solve their own problems are free and can begin to concern themselves with others. Thanks to freedom they have acquired, they expand their field of consciousness to include all of humankind, and like the sun, they send the superabundant light and love that overflows from them. But before they can do this, they must …

Are we ever really alone?

So many people today say that they are lonely. And yet in reality no one is ever alone. The whole universe is watching us and listening to us. None of our words or gestures remains without an echo. If, in the morning as you open your window, you make a habit of saying good morning to the earth, the sky and the whole of creation, voices will answer you, echoing from the four directions in space: good morning, good morning, good morning… and you will feel them with you all day long. Also, when you leave your house, you come across a number of people in the street: most are unknown to you, but is it so difficult to show them an open, friendly face? Are they not worth wishing light, peace and joy to in your thoughts? You say they don’t inspire you. Possibly not, because you only look at appearances. But behind these appearances there are souls and spirits. When you are able to relate, in your soul and spirit, with all the souls and spirits on …

Self-mastery- harnessing our inner horses

A human being can be compared to a harnessing of three horses, which Russians call ‘troïka’. These three horses are symbolically our three bodies – physical, astral and mental – which we must guide all at the same time. They each have a different color: the physical horse is red, the astral horse – the heart – is green and the mental horse – the intellect – is yellow. In order for the three horses to be obedient and to walk in step together, we must hold the reins firmly, that is to say, establish a contact with them with a subtle and etheric link: the will-power. And we must also know the nature of each horse in order to control it. The physical horse needs frugality in food and drink, as well as exercise so as to develop its flexibility. The astral horse is tamed with purity, kindness and love. Lastly, the mental horse needs us to insist on attention, vigilance and lucidity. It is on these three conditions that our horses will not …

The sacred side of sexuality

 “The next time you take someone into your arms, project them all the way to heaven and link them to the higher regions. A man should address the Divine Mother through his beloved and she should address the Heavenly Father through him -instead of limiting their exchanges to the lower regions, both of them will be linking themselves to the Source. In this way both of you take the riches God has given you- life and the emanations and warmth of mutual love -and instead of using them for your own pleasure, you drink together the purest form of love from the highest source. The secret of control, the secret of sublimation, is to seek work not pleasure. You say “But suppose I hold my love in my arms… what’s the point if I’m not looking for pleasure?. There can be joy, there can be inspiration, there can be wonder and ecstasy, if you have a heightened consciousness …. is that not more than pleasure? When a man and woman are together sharing a divine …
