Clarifying Love – Editorial
The choice before humanity is increasingly clear and apparent – to continue to exist chained to the substance of the material worlds, a prisoner of linear time and events; or to move forward and learn to live by the releasing values of the Soul which will generate love and right relationship with both the phenomenal and spiritual worlds.
The Influence of the Rays Today – Djwhal Khul
The second way in which this dominant will impulse makes itself felt is through the voice of the masses of the people throughout the world. . . The sound of the nations has been heard as a mass sound for the first time. That voice today is unmistakably expressive of the values which embody human betterment; it demands peace and understanding between men and it refuses – and will steadily refuse – to permit certain drastic things to happen. This “voice of the people,” which is in reality the voice of public opinion is, for the first time and with no recognition of the fact, being determined by the Will of God.
The Doctrine of the Heart – Katherine Hendon
We are told that the occultist must recover the mystic experience and translate it in terms of synthesis. Synthesis is a monadic expression of all that is more than the separated self. Synthesis is the ability to think in wholes and to touch the world of causes, which is another name for the Intuitional Plane. The development of the sense of synthesis is eventually achieved through the full application of the doctrine of the heart.
An Expanded Anatomy of the Heart – Dinah Lawson and Shideh Pouria
The heart organ is not only largely composed of neural and endocrine cells, it also creates a large electro-magnetic field which is toroidal in shape and can extend as far as ten feet or more away from the body. The cardiac electromagnetic field is the most extensive and powerful field generated by any organ in the body and estimated to be 500 times stronger than that of the brain.
Detachment – Ryan Steven Regnier
Detachment should flow from the awareness that no possession, no relationship, no achievement is permanent or able to give lasting satisfaction; from the discovery that there is no self which needs to be protected, promoted, or defended; and from the realization that searching for selfish sensual gratification is pointless, since it leads only to craving and obsession.
The New Monasticism – Rory McEntee and Adam Bucko
The goal and struggle, or perhaps it is the play, of the new monk is to incarnate the fact that the spiritual and contemplative life includes action. The new monk may be an artist, a scientist, a spiritual teacher, an elementary teacher, a social worker, or a waiter. It is not so much the job that matters, as the place from which they approach their work. Their work cannot be separated from their spiritual path. They endeavor to bring a heightened awareness, intimacy and authenticity to their work, whether this may be washing dishes or feeding the poor.
Money, Fit for Spiritual Purpose? – Christopher Noakes
Money has come to be used as the medium which integrates diverse forms of exchange, and therefore plays an important role in the expression of whatever underlying dynamics are at work. To be useful for spiritual purpose, money would need to function as a means of exchange which facilitates reciprocal benefit and healthy circulatory flow through humanity and the wider realms of the planetary life.
The Spiritual Side of Austerity – World Goodwill
It is not too idealistic to say that many people today are deeply concerned about the welfare of others across the globe in a way which has never occurred before. To meet the demands which this newly evolving recognition of living in “one world” entails it is essential that spiritual values and qualities such as fairness, compassion, and brotherhood are no longer just abstractions but become woven into the fabric of everyday life.
Robert Fludd, A Forerunner – Douglas Russell
The parallels between the Ageless Wisdom teachings studied in the Arcane School and Fludd’s views of cosmos and man, are so numerous that it is quite reasonable to characterize him as a great disciple. His vigorous defense of esoteric principles and values make him a true spiritual warrior. He exemplified the disciple’s duty to serve the advancement of the Plan of evolution by adapting his pioneering efforts to his time and place in history.
