Hosea 8:7 from the Old Testament strikes an early warning note into the heart of humankind about the consequences of all warmongering: ‘They have sown the wind and they have reaped the whirlwind. It has no stalk, nor an ear to yield meal, and if it were to yield, the strangers shall eat it.’ This teaching has not just one but two hidden esoteric meanings. First it refers to the law of Karma, i.e. what we send out into the world must return to us. But that is by no means all there is to it. In keeping with the Universal laws the force of whatever any one of us creates on the Earth plane through their thought processes and the actions following them increases and gathers ever more strength and momentum on its way back to us. This demonstrates that humankind’s most urgent need is taking charge of our thought processes and learning to control them. Constant practice alone can help us to become its masters rather than its servants.
This part of my jottings contains some of White Eagle’s most beautiful teachings which, upon first encountering them echoed the insights that were coming to me in my writings. They are appearing here with the kind permission of the White Eagle Lodge, which was founded 22.2.1936 in London.
This is dedicated to parents and children of all ages. The inspiration behind bringing the various items together arose from witnessing the often extreme difficulties parents and children are experiencing when the need arises for letting go of each other. As I am no exception to this, I know from first hand experience how important it is to gain a better understanding of the true roles both parties are meant to play towards each other, whilst in physicality.
I believe that this is too vital an issue to be ignored by anyone, even for those who do not have any children of their own. After all, we are all someone’s child! Should you however be one of those lucky ones who have never had any problems with the issues that arise in parent/child relationships maybe you know someone who has. Please share this with them.
This is from a series of poems written to writers and famous people. This is one is to the poet Ferlinghetti.
The Beat Generation was a group of American writers of the 1950s whose writing expressed profound dissatisfaction with contemporary American society and endorsed an alternative set of values. The term sometimes is used to refer to those who embraced the ideas of these writers. The Beat Generation's best-known figures were writers Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, who met as students at Columbia University in the 1940s, and San Francisco-based poet and publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Ferlinghetti’s City Lights Bookstore, in the North Beach section of San Francisco, became a center of Beat culture and remained an enduring symbol of alternative literature into the 1990s. Another center of Beat activity was New York City’s East Village, where Ginsberg made his home.The term Beat Generation was first used by Kerouac in the late 1940s. The word beat had various connotations for the writers, including despair over the beaten state of the individual in mass society and belief in the beatitude, or blessedness, of the natural world and in the restorative powers of the beat of jazz music and poetry. Beat writing generally called for a renunciation of material goods and acquisitiveness in favor of a rediscovery of the erotic, artistic, and spiritual self through the use of drugs, casual sex, music, and the mysticism of Zen Buddhism. The term beatnik was coined in the late 1950s to refer, often disparagingly, to people who embraced the ideas and attitudes of the Beat writers.
Healers And Healing is about the healing abilities that are slumbering in each one of us. At our entry into the Age of Aquarius new opportunities for saving and redeeming ourselves, each other and our world are opening up for everyone.
According to Guru Granth Sahib ji,' From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married.
Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come.
When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound.
So why call her inferior? From her, kings are born.
From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all'...
The Age of Aquarius is with us now and in this book you can find out more about it. The symbol of this sign is the water bearer who holds a pot in his arms from which he seems to be pouring water. Because of this it is hardly surprising that to this day there is quite a bit of confusion about the nature of this sign. In spite of its symbol and contrary to popular beliefs, Aquarius is by no means one of the Water signs. It is an Air sign and the water that flows from the man’s vessel is not of the liquid kind. It is an allegory for the cleansing and purifying effect of fresh spiritual knowledge and wisdom that is constantly being poured from the highest levels of life into the earthly consciousness of humankind, to enable us and our world to move forward on the evolutionary spiral of life.
