As the rate of change moving through our world seems to accelerate, we are reminded that life in all its aspects is constantly unfolding. Time is a concept we use to order and manage our response to this unfolding expression of life as it sweeps through everything in the rhythmic cycles of a continual creative process. We may deny, resist and even actively oppose the realisation of the ebbs and flows of this great tide of life, but it cannot be stopped. We might try to ignore our inextricable part in it or we can consciously participate in its evolutionary movement.
There are those coming to the fore now who see more clearly
They embody what has been foretold
Rather than regard the heart as personal property, it is preferable to convince oneself that the heart is not entirely one’s own organ but has been granted one for attainment of the highest communion. Perhaps if people began to think of the heart as something on loan from Above they would handle it with greater care.
A certain hermit emerged from his solitude with a message, saying to everyone he met, ‘You have a heart.’ When he was asked why he did not talk about mercy, patience, devotion, love, and all the beneficial foundations of life, he replied, ‘Just so long as we don’t forget the heart, the rest will come.’ Indeed, how can we turn to love if there is nowhere for it to dwell? Or where will patience lodge if its dwelling is closed? So to avoid torturing oneself by seeking virtues that find no application, one has to build a garden for them, a garden that will open up thanks to an understanding of the heart. Let us stand firm on the foundation of the heart, and let us understand that without the heart we are no more than discarded husks.” Heart, sloca 389
…the planetary Life is mightier than our little human designs
We live our daily lives within an expanding sense of context as we eat food and use utensils grown or created anywhere in the world. Events in far places can have immediate effect in a deeply personal way on our day-to-day living. We are operating as a global civilisation and what happens anywhere on the planet has significance for us all, for the whole. There is more to take in and respond to in each moment thus making our lives more fast-paced and full. We speed up our thinking and acting as we are bombarded with information from all corners of the whole in which we live. There is a faster rhythm to the external life and it draws forth a sharper focussed attention and, through necessity, develops our capacity to discern and choose. The higher vibratory rate of our responsiveness urges a movement of our sense of who we are into a more subtle point of being and stillness at the heart of the whirling movement of the outer world.
…we can recognise that our planet has the means to support all the natural kingdoms in harmony
The Soul shines through the heart as the Sun shines through the solar system and brings Life to our beautiful blue planet
Just as the sun is the heart of the system, the human heart is the sun of the organism. There are many sun-hearts, and the Universe represents a system of hearts; that is why the cult of Light is the cult of the heart. To understand this abstractly means to leave the heart out in the cold; but as soon as the Light of the sun-heart comes alive, the need for the magnet’s warmth will make it shine forth like a true sun. It has been said: ‘Let your heart lead you in crossing Santana.’ That is how you can make the concept of the heart resistant to the cold. You can look upon the rhythm of the heart as the rhythm of life. The Teaching about the Heart is as bright as the sun, and the warmth of the heart speeds as swiftly as a sunbeam. Everyone has felt astonishment at how a ray of the rising sun can instantly insulate everything from the cold. The heart can do the very same thing!
I am speaking of the warmth of the heart now that it is especially necessary. A thought surging forth in aspiration sets space on fire, while the warmth of the heart is a constant hearth. Courage dwells in the warmth of the heart—remember this! The manifestation of the dark forces acts like frost on a sown field. Only the heart’s warmth provides a radiant shield. But just as we conduct tests on light waves with delicate care, we should approach the heart with caution and solicitude.” Heart, 62
…our young heart-warriors are leading the way into the new Era of the Soul.
I heard singing in the earth this morning
and a song among the fluttering leaves,
the scarlet sky was full of music.
I thought I was born into a new world
as I stepped out on a trail to the sea.
the sea was alight with a fire of gold,
the waves chanting song towards the land
singing a message of dear pristine love,
birds dipped and soared in musical notes.
I was seeking a new world today.
I turned back home to my customary life
but the roses trembled in the sunlight
while gulls dipped and a melody soared.
what is this sense of an unknown world?
I asked the lark, I asked the rushing wind.
a new world comes sang the prescient bird,
a new earth arises the soulful wind sang.
in the green grass an advent I heard then
a song of renewal, a music of destiny.
it was earth’s own pure voice,
the bright music of birth.
