Those who love our world – our beautiful planet – are those who will make it the lighted home that has always been intended by the great Life Who brought it into being. Can we imagine a world of light in which we see the light in one another and in all things, and sense the loving purpose of the One in Whom everything has its being? Perhaps the more we can grow accustomed to recognising the heart and soul in others, the more we may bring this world into being – by seeing it, recognising it and thus giving it place and substance.
There is already much light entering the world.
But the light of understanding enters in when we truly, deeply listen to another’s story, when we listen to their heart. Then we begin to see clearly through the surface ripples and distortions to the truth beneath – just as those on the other side of the veil see, unencumbered by the darkening density of the material body. This was beautifully described in the book, “The Life beyond the Veil” by Rev. G Vale Owen, in which he transcribed descriptions of the subtle realms of light by his mother after her transition there. When he asked her: “Are you able to see me as I sit here writing?”, she replied:
We do see you, but with other eyes than yours, our eyes are not accustomed to the effect of light as you have it on earth. Our light is of a different kind, a sort of interpenetrating element by which we are able to discern your inmost mind, and that is it to which we speak – to you yourself and not, of course, to your outward ears. So it is yourself we see, and not your material body, which is but an enveloping robe. When we touch you therefore, you do not feel the touch physically but spiritually, and if you wish to apprehend our touch, you will have to keep this in mind and look deeper than the body and its mechanical brain.”
The increasing light in the world is also revealing all that previously operated unknown in the shadows.
The current pandemic continues to teach us about this
So many factors are urging a human shift in consciousness and identity. There is a divine Plan working out through us as our realisation grows. The Tibetan Master spoke of this Plan:
What is this plan? When I speak of the plan I do not mean such a general one as the plan of evolution or the plan for humanity which we call by the somewhat unmeaning term of soul unfoldment. These two aspects of the scheme for our planet are taken for granted, and are but modes, processes and means to a specific end. The plan as at present sensed, and for which the Masters are steadily working, might be defined as follows:—It is the production of a subjective synthesis in humanity and of a telepathic interplay which will eventually annihilate time. It will make available to every man all past achievements and knowledges, it will reveal to man the true significance of his mind and brain and make him the master of that equipment and will make him therefore omnipresent and eventually open the door to omniscience. This next development of the plan will produce in man an understanding —intelligent and cooperative—of the divine purpose for which the One in Whom we live and move and have our being has deemed it wise to submit to incarnation.” A Treatise on White Magic, page 403
…the resulting disturbances are waking us up
The human heart is our true home. And through that realisation we will co-create a new planetary house of light
From Rumi: ~
~ If light is in your heart, you will find your way home ~
~ Only from the heart can you touch the sky ~
~ Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop ~
~ The soul has been given its own ears to hear things mind does not understand ~
~ When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy ~
I think it can be useful thinking and talking of Elder Sisters as well as Elder Brothers! I know in Alice Baileys time the term was understood to embrace both, but we live in more linguistically precise times now and the power of language to influence unconscious biases has been thoroughly researched. The Millennium Development Goals clearly set the goal of valuing girls and women and it would be so great if the language used in esoteric discourse supported that goal, especially because the symbolic realm is perhaps the MOST POWERFUL!
So many of our beloved teachers have been Elder Sisters including the wonderful writer of these essays! So let’s always say ‘Elder Sisters and Brothers’
Thank you, dear Fe, for the reminder! One gets so used to terminologies it is easy to forget they do not always convey the same to everyone.
Grateful for your reminder.
With much love,
