…as we pass through the cycles we move co-operatively with the great principles underlying life in form
Once purpose is fulfilled, the form is no longer required. Its substance is returned to the great reservoir of the Mother of the World, imbued with all the refinements that experience has wrought upon it. Among these refinements are the subtle memories it helped to create. They flow into the heart of the universe and become part of the song of life evolving through form. Every form resounds with the beauty of these eternal strains – if we attune our hearing to their subtle waves. All is accessible to the subtle Presence through and beyond time.
This accessibility to the whole and its potential synthesis can be seen reflected in the form of the internet
As electronic search engines and beamed media convey the widening array of world events, views and opinions, we become more deeply aware of the pain and suffering of our world
Sifting through all this accessible data, it becomes clear that there are many who are paving the way into a new world of interrelation through heart-response rather than desire-acquisitiveness. They stand out to the sensitive eye as sparkling stars of reflected sunlight dancing across the darker depths of the ocean of information. Together they are creating a guiding light, a pathway into what is good, true and beautiful.
Many are communicating through inspiring and enlightening publications such as Kosmos Journal – see: http://www.kosmosjournal.org/ or through magazines reporting on the positive progress of ordinary people achieving extraordinary things such as Positive News magazine – see: https://www.positive.news/ and The Good News Agency – see: http://www.goodnewsagency.org/en/home.php Many are breaking free of the limiting currents of traditionally accepted thought and are opening up a newer and wider view of reality that includes the subtle dimensions of our being – such as the scientists who published the “Manifesto for a Post-Materialist Science”:-

Those who seek and tell the truth through the chaos of a crumbling civilisation underpin our search for meaning as old reasoning falters
…the truth-tellers are pointing the way with a clarity wrought out of their own experience.
…Frankl found profound truth in a quote from Friedrich Nietzsche who said ‘Those who have a “why” to live can bear with almost any “how”.’ He then wrote: ‘In some way, suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds meaning.’
On reading that, I go back to the insight … that our imprisonment was never personal. The gap between what we are accused of doing and what we actually did is so vast that it could never be about us as individuals. Instead, it has to be about something much bigger – about what we have come to represent. And to my mind, the only thing I can think of is an attempt by the government to suppress freedom of the press and, more broadly, freedom of speech itself.” Peter Greste: The First Casualty

It takes an act of will motivated by a shared heart to break through the confines of a world view become too small for the full glory of the human soul to express.
(Will) energy is… that which is related to the livingness (through consciousness and form) of humanity; …it concerns the establishing of right human relations and is that condition of being which eventually negates the power of death. It is, therefore, incentive and not impulse; it is realised purpose and not the expression of desire. Desire works from and through the material form upwards; Will works downwards into form, bending form consciously to divine purpose. The one is invocative and the other is evocative. Desire, when massed and focussed, can invoke will; will, when evoked, ends desire and becomes an immanent, propulsive, driving force, stabilising, clarifying, and—among other things—finally destroying. …It is this will—aroused by invocation—which must be focussed in the light of the soul, and dedicated to the purposes of light and for the purpose of establishing right human relations which must be used (in love) to destroy all that is hindering the free flow of human life and that is bringing death (spiritual and real) to humanity. This Will must be invoked and evoked.” Esoteric Astrology, page 583-4
And with the Soul’s emergence we enter into the age of wisdom.
The Truth by Don Turner
Unless it is eternal it is not the Truth
But a passing thought,
Unless it’s beautiful it is not the Truth
But an emotion formed in fear and ignorance,
Unless it lives, inspires and gives life
It is not the Truth but a falsehood and a dream,
Unless it radiates love, joy and peace
It is not the Truth, but another human conception —
That the world is full of such truths
Only shows us the nature of our world —
Yet we may awaken — the spirit prompts us.
When we look at the horrors around us
The spirit says awaken to your Truth —
This needn’t be so.
Suffering is a divine mechanism that prompts us to let go,
To heed the call of humanity’s cries
And free ourselves.
We have let ourselves be controlled by fear
But the Truth is we can’t be harmed and are eternal —
Embrace this Truth and live
Express your Truth and Be
Sing your song, and add your note to the divine chorus.
The Truth isn’t found in words but in the spirit prompting
In the moment, now,
Open up, free your mind, and journey forth,
And as the changing colors of the living sky
Reflect the Truth and Beauty of Life,
Embody it and let It perfect you.
