    The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life – Part Five

    Conclusions



    Occasionally, human love comes your way. The same as everything else in your life it is a gift from your spirit friends and helpers, but not without having been earned by you in the first place. It’s the Universal laws’ way of returning to you something you created in previous lifetimes and earlier in this one. The Angels and Masters are making sure you are drawing it towards yourself at the right moment. You have deserved the love of other human beings and now it’s up to you how to deal with it. Your behaviour and reactions show the wise ones in the background of your earthly existence how far you have come on the road of learning to love My way, complete with wisely knowing when to give and when to withhold something.

    Respond to the loves that enter your life as best you know how to and never forget that nothing in earthly life belongs to you, least of all people. At the end of each lifetime everything that was given to you was on loan and has to be handed back in as good condition as possible. The only thing you can take with you into Eternity is the spiritual growth you have achieved in the earthly school of life. This wealth will be yours forever and do not underestimate its value, because the belief that human beings enter earthly life with nothing and leave it the same way is a false one. Spiritual riches are of enormous value, for they are also the only possession you bring with you into every new lifetime. At any given moment they are stored in the memories of your soul and accompany you into every future lifetime.

    On every occasion you are bringing with you the thought and behaviour patterns you developed in the course of all previous earthly sojourns. Included in this are your fears and anxieties, false beliefs, prejudices and superstitions. They are waiting to be changed and overcome, respectively, through more enlightened ways of being that expand your consciousness through new knowledge that will be coming your way. All of this is stored in your subconscious mind. From the moment you draw the first breath of a new lifetime they are influencing everything you think and do, in either positive or negative ways. And what kind of a person you are going to be more than anything else depends on the evolutionary level you reached before entering into your present lifetime.

    Nothing in earthly life belongs to you. Everything is a gift on time and all together you are attending the earthly school of life so you can act as teachers and pupils at the same time. The people you draw into your orbit and with whom you fall in love are the ones who are teaching you how to love. After many lifetimes your higher nature wakes up and you start to bring forth, from deep within your own being, your better, finer and nobler character traces. Slowly but surely you then evolve into someone who is like Me, who loves people the way I do, totally, unconditionally and in a detached manner that knows nothing of needfulness and has no time for possessing and holding onto anything. Loving My way is easy when you can see the whole picture and are aware that on the inner level all life is one and there is no separation between anything.

    Love and thought are the greatest powers in the whole of Creation. Bonds of friendship and love that have been created between individuals and also within groups cannot be destroyed by anything. Being aware of these things, you refuse to make a prisoner of anyone and when someone you love wants to leave you, you set them free. Safely you rest in the knowledge that, if there really is love between the two of you, the spiritual aspect of this relationship will never die. On the contrary, it is bound to increase the more physical distance is between you, maybe sufficient for the loved one to return to you physically, too. That’s how the saying ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ came into being.

    Loving My way never forces anyone to do anything. My kind of love may coax and cajole and invite loved ones to take part in something, but no more. This is how I have always treated every one of you, My beloved children of the Earth, and that will forever continue. There is no need for clinging onto the life I have given to you or anything within it. Let your heart be filled with faith and trust that when one door in your life closes, another one is already open and waiting for you. So take the hand of the Angel when it comes to free you from your earthly shackles and chains. By acting upon this knowledge and letting go whenever the time for doing so has come can save you a great deal of suffering that could easily have been avoided.

    Once you are loving My way, you will discover that this feeling is not like a switch that can be turned on and off. Now you are loving people for who they truly, independent of how they behave and what they do to you. My love for every human being is not about who you presently are in earthly life and what you are doing. Loving with this kind of detachment is a freeing experience. When you and with it your ability to love has moved onto the necessary level of consciousness, you will find that whenever someone stops loving you, you do not feel like doing the same to them. You cannot see any point in that. When you understand who and what people truly are, where they have come from and what kind of high and holy destiny is in store for every one of you, forgiving and continuing to love them is the most natural thing in the whole wide world for you.

    Getting to this state of consciousness is much easier than you may think. The only thing you need is a better understanding of your opponent’s motivations. There is no finer instrument than astrology for getting to know someone’s predestined pathway in broad outlines. No casting of horoscopes or intensive studying of the subject is necessary. All you want to know is people’s main life lessons and the struggle they are likely to have with overcoming the negative aspects of their Sun and Moon signs and integrating the positive ones into their character make-up. See the relevant links at the end of this chapter.

    It’s not that loving My way makes you blind, far from it. When you are looking at life with the vision of the greater picture, i.e. complete with the spiritual background of everybody’s present existence, you can still see people’s flaws and idiosyncrasies. But you know that everybody is on the same evolutionary pathway and will eventually have grown into a God-like being. Besides you are aware that all human beings have everything within, the very best as well as the worst; that you can only change yourself and not others, and that what they are going through is but a passing phase of their evolutionary pathway and a tiny piece in the great jigsaw puzzle of life. This knowledge frees you to love people, not merely your nearest and dearest but everybody, just the way they are.

    Words like vengeance and retribution have no room in the dictionary of loving My way. My Universal laws were designed with love and so that in the fullness of time everything would take care of itself. There is nothing but teaching and learning in the great school of life that is the whole of My Creation, including the earthly plane. Through their own experiences and in the course of many lifetimes everybody in your world gets to know all aspects of My nature and their own, starting with the lowest level and each working their own way up to the highest. Even though for a long time human beings are unaware of this, hand in hand with the Angels and Me, every one of you is relentlessly searching for consciousness expanding experiences that help you to grow in wisdom and understanding. All of you are as much part of Me as I am of you. Each one of you is a manifestation of life through which My knowledge constantly increases.

    The religions and philosophies the Angels and I once presented to your world still are vital parts of the great jigsaw puzzle of humankind’s earthly existence. Yet, for as long as the majority of people lacked the knowledge of the spiritual background of their existence, for wise higher educational reasons they turned into nothing more than obstacles. And if you now took a closer look at your world, without bearing in mind the spirit realm and the part it plays, you could not help the feeling that not a great deal on the Earth is making much sense. I would not hold it against you, if you then asked yourself: ‘Where is the love the religions of our world are speaking of? I cannot see much evidence of that. Are we born merely to die, after however many years of being here, after all? What’s the point in that?’

    In spite of the warmongering and open hostilities are still rampant in some parts of your world, and the havoc that is created by religions that have long lost their validity and usefulness, take heart, My beloved children of the Earth. These belief systems are in the process of being replaced by a new religion that supports humankind’s spiritual progress on the evolutionary spiral of life. When it rules supreme, as it soon will be, there will be no more excuses for slaughtering, robbing and maiming adventures for the testosterone driven patriarchal religions. Their remnants have not yet gone from your world, but they soon will do.

    For quite some time, the Angels and I have been working on preparing your race for its rightful place in the Universe. A vast evolutionary cycle is closing and with the coming of My truth the religious beliefs that separate human beings from each other, are disappearing. They are replaced by the religion of the new age that tells you:

    There is only one religion, the religion of love.
    There is only one country, the whole of Mother Earth.
    There is only one race and chosen people, the whole of humankind.
    There is only one gender, who is androgynous, whole and holy.
    There is only one language, the language of the heart.
    And there is only one God, the God of love,
    The Great Father/Mother of all life
    And I, their only born Son/Daughter.
    We are one Holy Trinity, who is
    Omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.

    I hope that for you the pieces of the great jigsaw puzzle of life are falling into place and for you an ever more beautiful picture of humankind’s high and holy destiny emerges. The White Eagle group of spirit guides has the following message for you. The following is the essence of what appeared in the White Eagle calendar March 2010: ‘Nothing lightens the vibrations of your whole being as much as cultivating a good sense of humour. We like to see your happy smiling faces and how you refuse to deal with anything too heavily and seriously. Knowing that in earthly life all things pass away, that everything eventually has to come to its natural end and that, in the fullness of time, God and the Angels will be making all crooked places straight, smile and let things take their course, just be.’

    Who Is Blind?
    The one who is unable to perceive another world.
    Who is dumb?
    The one who cannot speak a kind and loving word at the right moment.
    Who is poor?
    The one who is plagued by too many desires.
    Who is rich?
    The one whose heart is contented.

    The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life - Part Six

    Turn To Me



    Turn to me, O turn and be saved,
    Says the Lord, for I am God.
    There is no other, none beside me.
    I am the spirit of the Universal Christ,
    The only born Son/Daughter of the
    Great Father/Mother of all life.
    Their qualities are Mine and because
    You are a spark of Me,
    Everything that’s in Me is also in you.

    I am the living God or wise one within you,
    The one who comforts and heals you.
    No outside forces are involved.
    You will always be safe with Me.
    Even when you leave earthly life
    And shed your physical body like an outworn garment,
    You’ve no need to be afraid of anything.
    All that happens to you is that
    My Angels take you back
    To the spirit realm,
    My world and your true home.

    Do not look for Me
    Somewhere ‘out there’.
    You will not find me there.
    I am your Highest or God Self,
    The wise one within,
    Your inner guidance.
    Search for Me deep within your own being.
    You are My child and
    My highest qualities are also in you.
    I am waiting for you to start bringing them forth,
    So your own Christ nature can save and redeem you.
    You are the only one who can do this for you.

    Listen to Me, My people,
    Give ear to Me, My nation,
    A law went forth from Me
    Long before life on the Earth began.
    The knowledge that brings you the understanding
    That the justice of My laws is perfect and unerring,
    That’s my light for you, My beloved children of the Earth.
    Equipped with this knowledge,
    Lift up your eyes to the Heavens
    And look at the Earth down below.
    Your understanding of the meaning of
    The Heavens then vanishes like smoke
    And you know that your existence in physicality
    Is but a passing phase
    And that each one of you awaits a
    High and holy destiny,
    Forever safely guided and protected by the Angels and Me.

    Throughout the whole of Creation
    My laws have always been ruling supreme.
    They ensure that everything returns to its source
    And none of you can ever be truly lost
    In the vastness of space and time.
    During the course of your evolutionary journey
    You are constantly being drawn back into the oneness with Me.
    The knowledge of this is part of My light
    And that for all of you,
    My beloved children of the Earth,
    Not just a selected few.

    Yet, what good are My laws to you
    For as long as you lack the understanding
    Of their presence and how they work,
    Affecting every lifeform in the same way,
    Therefore also you and your life.
    Religions that are supposed to serve Me,
    But insist on looking after their own interests,
    Who refuse to grasp My laws and their justice
    And learn how to work with them,
    Are not serving the highest good
    Of My people of the Earth.
    They are no good to either you or Me.
    That’s why before long they will disappear.

    Affirmations



    As you move along the pathway of your present lifetime, whenever your needs change be creative and make up new affirmations. Here are a few examples to help you on the way:

    • O Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, may Your will and wishes as well as Your words and prayers be mine. In my life may Your will be done this day and always. Today is a day of completion and healing, for which I give thanks and praise. Divine healing miracles are constantly taking place in my world and therefore also in me. Your miracles and wonders shall never cease.

    • My love for You floods my whole being and fills every cell and atom of my physical body and restores them to perfect health, happiness and wellbeing. With every breath I take the love and warmth of Your sacred fire flows through the painful parts into their deep underlying causes and dissolves them.

    • Before going to sleep, I affirm that in dreamtime energies that are no longer good for me will be flowing through my feet into the sacred fire of Mother Earth. I ask the Angels of healing and peace to uplift and transmute them into blessing and healing energies for all life. No other energies can enter my consciousness.

    • My earthly personality is the cross I have been carrying for a long time. I now hand it over to you, Great White Spirit, the wise one or living God within. You communicate with me intuitively and at all times are showing me where and how I can best serve You.

    • God and the Angels are guiding and protecting me and forever will continue to do so. Nothing can hurt or harm me because I now walk in the light of the Universal Christ, Your only born Son/Daughter. My fears and anxieties are dissolving because they are no longer required.

    • I only need to remember the things that are worthy of keeping. So I let go of that which no longer serves my highest good and greatest joy and the wellbeing of our whole world.

    • Knowing that Your evolutionary plan is perfect and that this also applies to the millions of small plans, one for every human being, within the great plan, the fire of Your Divine enthusiasm eases me forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life. Intuitively, You and the Angels are showing me ways of fulfilling my highest potential and how through this make my contribution to the healing of our world.

    • My pathway up the spiritual mountain of life now lies open and inviting before me. You and the Angels are guiding me through the tests and trials that still have to come my way until my last karmic debt has been paid and the path for a healing miracle is clear.

    • My inner light of Your wisdom and love fills my whole being and flows into everything I touch with my thoughts, words and actions. This is my way of bringing my own small corner of Heaven onto the Earth, so it can be shared with the whole of my spiritual family.

    • I am consciously aware that You have always been and forever will be with me and part of me. This means I have re-entered the state of Paradise and the knowledge of my oneness with You and all life fills my whole being to overflowing with a new kind of hope and faith, trust and devotion that is unshakeable. And my gratitude for the goodness of the life You and the Angels have always given us is boundless.

    • You are the small still voice of my inner being. At all times I pay attention to Your directions and follow them without hesitation. I hear with Your ears and joyously perceive the Angels’ glad tidings of the new golden age of our world, when Mother Earth has become a place where people and animals co-exist peacefully. I see how hand in hand with You and the Angels, everybody harmoniously works together for the highest good and greatest joy of all manifestations of life.

    O Great White Spirit,
    All glory, honour and praise be to You,
    For You are my inspiration,
    Revelation and illumination.
    I know that with the help and will
    Of You and the Angels
    All things are possible,
    Every condition can be healed
    And crooked corners made straight.

    Amen

    The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life - Part Eight

    What Happens In Heaven When We Pray?



    The other night in dreamtime I went to Heaven. One of the Angels welcomed me and showed me round. When I asked what happens here when we pray, it replied: ‘No prayer is ever unheard or unanswered. It’s just that after being filtered through the receiver station of the Akashic Records on one of the highest levels of life, where they are constantly arriving. They are then checked by the group of Angels known as the Lords of Karma, who are in charge of the records, and the answer sometimes has to be a downright ‘No!’ or something quite different and unexpected. Because the law of life * is love and evolution, these Angels decide about the nature of the gift that should be given. The outcome depends on which lessons are likely to be most beneficial for the applicant’s present spiritual development.

    This information is passed on to the Angel and its helpers in the first section of a department of the heavenly workshop which we are about to enter, so we can take a closer look at it. ‘This is the Receiving Section where the Lords’ responses to every one of the petitions that reached God are sorted,’ my Angel said. It was an extremely busy place with an Angel as supervisor and a great many spirit guides and helpers, who were following the instructions of the Lords. Each one is passed on to the relevant group of spirit guides and the Angel in charge of it, there are a great many, to be made a reality in earthly life.

    Our next stop was the Packaging and Delivery Department. The Angel continued: ‘This is where every gift that has been asked for by anyone in earthly life is processed. Whatever has been granted is produced here and then despatched to the recipient.’ And because the hierarchy of the Angels is in charge of providing for the true needs of every human being, everybody in this section was working extremely hard. I had never seen such a busy place before!

    But what a contrast, when we reached a door at the end of the department. We entered a very small room where, to my greatest surprise, only one Angel was sitting and doing nothing. ‘This is the Acknowledgment Section,’ my Angel friend murmured, obviously very embarrassed.

    ‘Why isn’t anyone working here?’ I asked.

    ‘Ah, it’s sad,’ sighed the Angel. ‘When people have received the things they asked for, very few have the presence of mind and good manners to thank us for it in acknowledgment.’

    Never having given much thought to it myself, I queried: ‘What is the right way of acknowledging God’s blessings?’

    ‘It’s very simple,’ said the Angel. ‘It takes only a moment to quietly say: ‘Thank you, Great Spirit, Father/Mother Creator and the Angels for taking such good care of me and my loved ones.’

    ‘But what are the blessings we should give thanks for?’ I queried.

    ‘First of all give thanks and praise to your Creator for the gift of your life and everything that’s in it. For example, if there is food on your table, in your larder and/or refrigerator, and if you have clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place for sleeping, maybe even a comfortable bed, you are richer than seventy-five percent of your spiritual siblings in earthly life. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet and maybe a bit of spare cash somewhere, you are among the top eight percent of the world’s wealthy, and if you can read this on your own computer, you are part of the one percent who can do so.’

    ‘If you woke up this morning in a reasonable state of health rather than being ill, you are more blessed than the many who will not live to see another day on the Earth. If you have never experienced the fears of having to take part in a battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the hunger pangs of starvation, you are ahead of about seven hundred million people in your world. If you can attend church services without having to be afraid of harassment, arrest, torture or death, you are more blessed than three billion others in your world. And if you can hold up your head and smile, you are not the norm but an exception compared to the millions who live in doubt and despair in your world.’

    ‘I see what you mean and would like to do better in future,’ I said. ‘But where should I start?’

    The Angel replied: ‘If you have received this message and can read it, you are already in possession of a double blessing because someone loves you enough to have sent it to you. On top of that you are more blessed than over two billion people in your world who cannot see and/or read at all. And that is by no means all. When this appears before you, you are blessed many more times. For starters, someone gave unselfishly of themselves and their most precious resource in earthly life and that is their time. Unstintingly, they are sharing their skills to serve as our channel for writing this and then bringing it to you. All of that is done without asking anything in return other than that you should find a better understanding of what happens on the higher and highest levels whenever someone prays on the earthly plane of life.

    The next blessing is that their gift is coming to you with the help and will of God and us, the Angelic hosts. Without them nothing happens in the whole of Creation. And finally, those who are reading this are closer to God’s heart than they ever thought possible. This is what brings about healing miracles and they are constantly happening with the help of the energies of the Universe’s white healing magic. I suggest you begin by giving thanks and praise to the Highest for all these things.’


    Great Spirit, Father/Mother Creator of all life,
    May all who read this find rest, peace and healing in You.
    Thank you for each one of them being part of my life.

    Springtime Prayer



    For flowers blooming profusely at our feet,
    For tender grass, so fresh and sweet,
    For the song of birds and humming of bees,
    For all things bright and beautiful
    We hear and see,
    O God and the Angels,
    We thank Thee!

    For the blue of stream and sky,
    For pleasant shade of branches high,
    For fragrant air and cooling breeze,
    For the beauty of blooming trees,
    O Great White Spirit,
    Father/Mother of all life and
    Thy only born Son/Daughter,
    The love and warmth of the Light of all lights,
    The Universal Christ,
    We give thanks and praise to Thee!

    A Celebration Of Spring



    Now that the winter’s gone, the Earth hath lost
    Her snow-white robes and now no more the frost
    Candies the grass or casts an icy cream
    Upon the silver lake or crystal stream.

    But the warm Sun thaws the benumbed Earth
    And makes it tender, gives a sacred birth
    To the dead swallow and wakes in hollow tree
    The drowsy cuckoo and the bumble-bee.

    Now do a choir of chirping minstrels bring
    In triumph to the world the youthful spring.
    The valleys, hills and woods in rich array
    Welcome the coming of the long’d for May.

    Now all things smile, only my love doth lower.
    Nor hath the scalding noon-day Sun the power
    To melt that marble ice, which still doth hold
    Her heart congeal’d and makes her pity cold.

    The ox, which lately did for shelter fly
    Into the stall, doth now securely lie
    In open fields. And love no more is made
    By the fireside but in the cooler shade.

    Amyntas now doth with his Chloris sleep
    Under a sycamore and all things keep
    Time with the season. Only she doth carry
    June in her eyes and in her heart January.

    Thomas Carew 1640




    Who Is Blind?
    The one who is unable to perceive another world.
    Who is dumb?
    The one who cannot speak a kind and loving word at the right moment.
    Who is poor?
    The one who is plagued by too many desires.
    Who is rich?
    The one whose heart is contented.

    True Prayer



    The following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in ‘The Achievements Of Prayer’ Stella Polaris April/May 2017: ‘Did you know that there is such a thing as true prayer? If you are now asking yourself whether someone’s prayers are ineffective until they have learnt to access the power of this kind of prayer, rest assured that every sincere request is a true and effective one. The best way of praying in our view is with the simplicity of a child’s heart. Before God that’s what you truly are, after all. Children on the whole still have the ability to trust completely. Their prayers come from their hearts and go straight to God, whatever this means to them and that depends on into which civilisation they were born in their present lifetime. However, the understanding of the concept of God has for some time been in the process of changing, as increasing numbers of you are becoming aware that there is only one God.

    ‘Generally speaking, for praying truly it is not necessary for human beings to wait until they have become initiates or even be particularly highly evolved. Simplicity, genuine humility and sincerity are the three most important factors in this context. Always bear in mind that prayer is a very powerful instrument, so consider very carefully what and how you wish to pray for anything specific. The best way of praying is by asking for something very simple, for example that the inflow of God’s love and light should constantly increase into everything taking part in earthly life. The finest way of praying is not for yourself but so that others may be blessed and healed with the help of your loving thoughts and words.

    ‘So, dear friends, together let us pray for the Divine spark of God to awake in ever more human hearts and for the blessing and healing of all humankind, the whole of your world and all other worlds and beings. Naturally, when all life is healing you cannot help doing the same. At the end of your prayer resign everything to God with the words: ‘May these things be done not my way, Great White Spirit, but Thine. Into Thy loving keeping I place all those I love and that is everybody. May Thy will be done on the Earth as much as anywhere else in the whole of Creation.’

    And this is the essence of another teaching that reached me through the White Eagle Lodge’s Monday thought 3rd April 2017, when I had just completed the above item: ‘When you sit devotedly in meditation and contemplation and open your heart to the inflow of the Divine love, it is possible to become so raised in consciousness that you may be able to see the Angels. Hand in hand with God and the Angels each one of you will eventually reach this state of ecstasy and glory. It is a spiritual gift and this developing and bringing forth the Divine Fire through the love in your heart is every human being’s goal. Developing the sixth sense or psychic power is as nothing compared with it. When your soul can see the Angelic hosts, you are dwelling in the abode of Christ, your true home.

    ‘We are not decrying psychic gifts, but in the natural course of evolution they eventually come for every human being. These gifts have their place, but they are very ordinary and by no means the be all and end all of anything. No-one should be content with developing them and then remain on that level. It is necessary for each one of you to reach beyond it to ever higher and eventually the highest levels of life.’
    Who Is Blind?
    The one who is unable to perceive another world.
    Who is dumb?
    The one who cannot speak a kind and loving word at the right moment.
    Who is poor?
    The one who is plagued by too many desires.
    Who is rich?
    The one whose heart is contented.

    The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life - Part Ten

    Heaven And Hell – An Allegory



    After having spent a difficult earthly lifetime without any spiritual sustenance whatsoever, a man returned to the world of spirit. When he had rested and recuperated there for a while, he still felt very confused. So he asked one of the ministering Angels: ‘What is this place? Where am I, in Heaven or in Hell?’ The Angel took him by the hand and said: ‘Heaven and Hell are not places that anyone goes to. They are states of consciousness that only exists in the earthly minds of human beings. Let me show you what I mean.’

    The Angel took the man to a room where people were sitting at a banquet table that was laden with delicacies of all kinds. Clearly a fest was in progress and each participant had a spoon with a very long handle attached to both hands. All of them looked emaciated and were clearly on the verge of starving in spite of the abundance before them. They were desperately trying to feed themselves, but because the handles of their spoons were far too long, not one morsel reached their mouths. Sadly and longingly, they were looking on the food kept on falling from their spoons onto the table and could not be reached by them.

    A group of Angels stood silently around the gathering, watching the sufferers with concerned and sad expressions on their faces. The Angel accompanying the man explained: ‘We are your guardians and keepers. Although we are in charge of you, we are not allowed to interfere with any of the lessons you are receiving. Only when someone goes down on their knees, it is enough to do so merely metaphorically speaking, do we have permission to come to your help, as surely we do only too gladly. Let me show you something else.

    The Angel took the man to another room where people were seated round another banquet table laden with delicacies, just like the one in the other room. Here, however, the participants of the feast were happily tucking in, joking and laughing, chatting and generally having a great time. They had an identical type of spoon fastened to both their hands. But in spite of this handicap, they were not starving because, helped intuitively by the Angels they had discovered that when they fed each other instead of themselves, as much food as anyone liked was available for all.

    Noticing the astonished look on the man’s face, the Angel said: ‘The situation in these two rooms is a reflection of what happens in earthly life. There as well as here, the only thing that really matters is that you become aware of your true nature as one of God’s children of the Earth. You find yourself in that existence from time to time so that you may learn to behave in keeping with your true nature, which means loving each other so much that you to want to share with those around you everything your Creator, the Great Father/Mother of all life, makes available to you.

    ‘In the final analysis, it’s everyone’s own attitude to themselves and each other and the behaviour this brings about towards those around you that makes the difference between a heavenly and a hellish lifetime. Spiritual knowledge is food from the Heavens, the higher and highest levels of life. It is a veritable treasure, but merely reading it and selfishly keeping it to yourself does no good to you or anyone else. New knowledge that comes your way is meant to be tried and tested by you through applying it to your own life’s experiences. That’s the only way the wealth contained in any of the information received can penetrate your consciousness and so become your property. Only then can it expand and your comprehension of life increase in the manner it is meant to do.

    ‘During each earthly lifetime you are taking part in another stage of your very own healing journey of a thousand miles that eventually takes each one of you back into the conscious awareness of your loving union with God and all life. And there is nothing nobler and finer, more fulfilling and rewarding for any one of you than sharing with others the learning you are gleaning from every one of your experiences. Whatever is gained in wisdom and knowledge should not be kept to yourself. The Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, wants you to use it for the feeding and blessing, healing and comforting of anyone who is in need of it. If you ask for our advice through your inner guidance, your intuition, we will show you what each one is ready to receive.

    ‘First and foremost all of you, without exception, are God’s children of the Earth, spirit and soul, the same as your Divine parents. Spiritually young and inexperienced souls, during the early stages of their earthly education you can only learn through their own experiences. This is how they have to find out that a lack of understanding of God’s true nature and their own, and not yet knowing the true purpose and meaning of their existence, leads to a gradually increasing severe deprivation of spiritual nourishment. Every bit of the Divine wisdom and truth your Highest Self is bringing you through your inner teacher is essential soul food, not for the selected few but for every human being on the Earth. Only when someone’s earthly self has been sufficiently starved of this kind of sustenance does it begin to feel its soul’s hunger and thirst. In the end this motivates it to go in search of it.

    ‘When you reflect on what is known of humankind’s history, you can see for yourself how all of you together, during the early stages of your race’s earthly development, each one of you made their contribution towards creating a living Hell. Without as yet being aware that you are responsible for every one of your thoughts, words and actions, you first did this for those around you. And when the law of Karma brought the reactions to your misdeeds back to you in other lifetimes, you did the same for yourself. It took a long time until you realised that this came to you by no means as some kind of punishment, but so that you should learn through your own experiences about the existence of the Universal laws and feel the effects they are having on everyone’s life.

    ‘Alas, to this day Hell on Earth is created by those who insist on using their gifts and talents for selfish purposes and material gains, rather than for the benefit of others to show them how they bring their own small pieces of Heaven down to the Earth. An existence that so far knows nothing but satisfying the desires, drives and urges of its small earthly self, sinks ever deeper into selfishness and avarice, belligerence and greed. In this process it constantly creates for itself and others a state of living Hell on the Earth.

    ‘However, God is love and the law of life is love, and each life that is filled with love is a heavenly one. So, love as much as you can – the supply is endless. The more you give, the more you will receive. No love given is ever lost because the Universal laws decree that whatever you send out must return to you. In its purest and most innocent form love expresses itself in simple human kindnesses like a loving thought, a word of understanding and/or the touch of a hand.

    ‘When it comes to adding credits to your spiritual account in the great book of life, being a good, kind and loving person rates much more highly than merely doing good. It means being godly and in God-like fashion welcoming the living, loving spirit onto the Earth so it can manifest itself through you and make your world into a better and more beautiful place for everything that dwells there. All of this has nothing to do with religions and everything with bringing forth your own Christ nature. This is how each one of you is required to eventually make their contribution towards establishing God’s kingdom, the realm of that which is beautiful, good and right on the Earth, thus bringing Heaven down to your planet.

    ‘Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are the Air signs. Each one in a somewhat different way serves the development of the human intellect and mind. Aquarius represents the Universal mind and during the Age of Aquarius every earthly mind will gradually attune itself and come into harmony with the Great Mind, known to you as God. You are all together on the Earth, so you can help each other in whatever manner it may be required. To support you in these endeavours, we have given you the Internet and showed you how to develop it to its present state of sophistication.

    ‘Can you see how with the worldwide web we are placing into everybody’s hands the spoon with the longest handle that ever existed? By e-mail, through forums, social websites like Facebook and Twitter, and whatever other means of communication will eventually be at your disposal, this feeding device is capable of reaching into the farthest and remotest corners of your planet. We ask you to use your spoon for good purpose and feed God’s children wherever you find some who to this day are deprived of God’s sacred wisdom and truth that is now flowing so freely directly from the source of your being into all human hearts that are open to receive it. All are your siblings in the great family of humankind and many to this day are crying out to be fed by you. Do not allow anyone to die of starvation but wield your spoon and act by sharing your abundance.

    ‘Whenever some spiritual knowledge comes your way, first turn to your inner guidance to establish whether it is true. If the wise one within says: ‘Yes, this is true!’ take the good news on board and spread it as much as possible. Do so in the spirit of friendship and love, in which it was given to you, and forward it on to your worldwide Internet connections of whom you know that they will be interested in what you have to give. Please do not forget to add a reference to the source of your information, i.e. that it came to you from Rays of Wisdom, where lots more of this nature is available and can be downloaded free of charge any time of day or night.

    ‘As spiritual knowledge is a living organism that will forever continue to grow and evolve, new, original and exciting dishes are constantly in preparation and being served in the form of updates and additional chapters, for you to be enjoyed and fed to others with your own long-handled spoon. How about supplying them with some links, so they too can partake as much as they wish of the feast we have prepared for you with the help of Aquarius?

    ‘It is through generously distributing your finds and nurturing others that you yourself will never fail to be fed and sustained by us and ultimately the Life Force itself. The more you manifest your Christ nature and conduct a life that is filled with love for everything that shares it with you, the more you will be able to see for yourself how every one of your needs is constantly met and that frequently before you have become aware of it yourself. If that isn’t everybody’s idea of Heaven on Earth, please tell us what is?’


    I am the Divine Trinity,
    The Great Father/Mother of all life
    And their only born Son/Daughter,
    The Universal Christ,
    Through whom all life is given.
    Freely, freely you are receiving
    My wisdom and truth.
    In our name now go forth and
    Freely share it with those around you.
    And because you not only believe
    But know that we really exist and live
    Inside of every one of you,
    They too will no longer be lost in earthly life
    Because they know where to find us.

    The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life - Part Eleven

    Invictus



    ‘Whatsoever we perpetrate, we do but row.
    We are steered by fate.’
    Samuel Butler

    * * *
    ‘We all have to row with the oars life has given us.’
    English Folk Wisdom

    * * *
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever Gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeoning of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the horror of the shade.
    And yet, the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me, unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll.
    I am the master of my fate
    And the captain of my soul.

    And yet, it’s good to know that:
    The Highest forces of life are steering my boat
    And all I have to do is row.
    The Great Father/Mother is the Admiral of my destiny’s fleet,
    And my spirit guides are piloting me safely through
    The treacherous waters of earthly life.
    At the end of each lifetime, they take me home
    Into the world of spirit, my true home
    Whose harbour lights shine warmer and more welcoming
    Than any other place I have ever visited.
    Each time I drop my anchor there,
    The wise ones in charge of me reassure me
    That all is well with me and my world,
    And forever will be.

    Having got as far as I presently am
    On my evolutionary pathway through life,
    I am glad to aware that:
    I am much more than a mere physical being.
    The essence of me is spirit, a Divine spark that is
    Part of God, eternal and will never die.
    Each time I pass from the earthly plane of life
    I am not snuffed out like a candle,
    I merely move into another dimension and
    A different level of existence, that’s all.

    My destiny is a high and holy one.
    I shall always be safe and never lost,
    Wherever the ocean of my life is taking me.
    I am grateful for everything that has been
    And sometime in the future will be.
    Great Father/Mother of all life,
    Forever I shall sing the praises
    Of Thy wisdom and love.

    William Ernest Henley
