Happier together- the need for global unity

Is there anything to stop human beings from being brothers and sisters, from forming universal brotherhood in the world… What can stop them? The only thing that stops them is illusion, the illusion of thinking they are happier being separated from each other…but the years go by, and they are no happier. It is normal for everyone to want to live their own life, no one wants to change that: you do not have to be welded to other people nor assume their problems. You and your life remain separate and independent, but in the invisible world you are united, you form a unity. Are cells welded together in the human body or is each one individual? The cells in the heart are not the same as the cells in the stomach, each one is an individual, but their affinities, their common goal, create a state of harmony between them called health. No one is going to ask you to change your skin colour or your religion. Let everyone remain as they are, with their …

Why does hatred exist?

Animosity and hatred arise between human beings because face-to-face with one another they are never conscious that they are in the presence of a spirit, a spark that is seeking to manifest itself and that, in order to help this spirit before them, it is worth their while to be kind, patient, understanding and generous. Given the way they are used to seeing each other and what they see in each other when they meet, it is inevitable that they end up wanting to kill each other. And even some who have, supposedly, placed the love of God and others as the foundation of their religion, do they not continue to live in hostility and confrontation? Yes. And why? Precisely because they never see beyond people’s lower nature. If they understood that there was a soul and spirit in them to which they could relate, they would feel obliged to behave differently.

True consciousness- the sense of universality

Humans are defined by the fact that they are endowed with consciousness, but they are only truly conscious when they are awakened to the notions of collectivity, of universality. This faculty allows them to enter into the heart and soul of others, to the extent that when they cause others to suffer, they themselves experience the pain they have inflicted. They feel and understand that everything they do to others, both good and bad, they do to themselves. In appearance, each human appears to be distinct and separate from everyone else. But in reality, a part of them is connected to the collective whole and lives in all creatures throughout the cosmos. Once this collective consciousness is awakened in you, you will sense in your relations with others that everything – your thoughts, feelings, words and actions – comes back to you like an echo, because your being, by extending throughout the universe, has become a collective entity. It is this state of consciousness that can be called a sense of fraternity. Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov …

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 – …

Aquarius -a new era

The coming era of Aquarius will be an era of knowledge, but not the dry, intellectual knowledge we have everyday with people who are educated, even erudite, but not alive. The symbol of Aquarius is an image of wisdom: an old man holding a pitcher from which he pours the waters of life. The knowledge of Aquarius is the knowledge that brings life, that awakens and stirs us to life. People may know all about germs and microbes, they may know about the stars and the planets, but they don’t know  how to live.. The water pouring from the old man’s pitcher symbolizes the fact that we need to let the water flow in order to make everything within and around us grow and flourish. water brings life, but people forget that, they are dry and thirsty, What they need above all in their lives is living water, the water of life. That is why, even though Aquarius is the symbol of knowledge, it is not linked to the brain, but to the solar plexus, …

The universal harmony of nature

“All human beings are a part of the great body of nature, so they must try to live in harmony with it. Even if they see themselves as individual beings with their own life, they belong to a whole, and they must consider how they can reconcile the needs of their personal life with those of collective life. Each individual is specific; Cosmic Intelligence wanted this diversity of creatures, and we should not try to bring them to the same level. Each one has the right to exist with their differences, their originality, as long as they are in harmony with the Whole…. This Whole with which we must be in harmony is not just the human collectivity: above and beyond that we are linked to the different realms of nature, as well as to the cosmic collectivity, at the heart of which we as thinking beings have an important role to play. So each day we must be aware that we are taking part in building the edifice of cosmic life, which comprises all …
