OCCULT EVOLUTIONARY CYCLES

Many of our regular readers will be familiar with our Occult Studies Course. Among the topics discussed during this course is Evolution, which this new article compliments by introducing the subject of the great Cycles of Sleep and Waking, or inactivity and activity, to which our Kosmos (Solar System) is subject.

http://www.occult-mysteries.org/evolutionary-cycles.html

As several readers have asked us to say something about the Kali Yuga or 'Black Age' (as it is also known), part of this article is devoted to answering their questions and concerns. Our customary afterword contains an allegory which we feel sure will appeal to all types of seekers after Truth, whether they are occultists or not and whether new readers or old.

PRAYER

We have mentioned prayer before on our Facebook page—see our post of 12 August 2017. Today we would like to say a little more about it.

But before we do so, we would like to share a simple prayer with you from Vision 12 of The Golden Star* by J Michaud PhD . Here it is:

‘Light, Life and Love.
May the Spirit of Goodness reach out into all Space.
May the positive POWERS of these Principles overcome all negative conditions.
And may Peace Profound reign everywhere.
So mote it be.
Amén, Amén, Amén.’

Such prayers are absolutely spiritual and can have marvellous results for the good of all mankind if sincerely projected in the manner the author describes.

Most people only pray when they are in dire need or distress. Whilst this is good, it is needful to pray when things are going well for us too. We should never need an excuse to pray! If we get into the habit of praying regularly we are quite literally opening a direct line to those in the Divine Hierarchy who are best placed to lend us their aid and comfort. And the more sincere and heartfelt our prayer the more likely it is to be answered.

Prayer is the voice of Faith, and it is the spirit speaking truth to the Spirit of Truth. It flies where the eagle never could ascend with its mighty wings of power; for Spirit is mightier than all earthly potency. It is best to pray in solitude, far from other petitioners who seek to enter the audience-chamber of God, though they will never be able to go farther than the nearest Angel who records our prayers, and our curses. But ardent prayer which comes from the heart filled with love for the Creator opens up the golden Portals, so that the prayer enters there, and finds its inevitable answer from on High.

When Martin Luther said that "the church converteth the whole world by blood and prayer", he uttered a blasphemy of the darkest hue; for the world of God cannot be converted by blood, or tears, or terror spread by tyrants from a throne, a presidential chair, or a pulpit. If he had said that the church converteth the whole world by Love and Prayer, then we should agree—IF it did!

And there is another thing we have to remember when we pray; for how can God grant you what you do not really desire to receive? It is all too easy to err in our prayers, by asking for that which would bring us harm instead of good. For what man or woman can truly say which is best for them in their evolution upon the Path to the Light? Real prayer can move the Hand which moves the world but how rare is such a powerful prayer, which can never be for the Self, but for the good of All. And how few there are that can pray for All, and not think of themselves too!

ANGER

Many Spiritual Teachers have said that anger is evil. Others that anger leads to hell. Krishna, in The Book of Sa-Heti* by J Michaud PhD, tells us in Chapter 34: 'Never give way to anger'...for anger is the passion of fools; it becometh not a wise man.'

This is true, but is it the whole truth?

Philemon has said that: "Temperate anger well becomes the wise." But we would call that sort of anger indignation. Real anger is a sort of self-immolation that harms the one who gives way to it most. Some people are angry habitually and it takes the slightest thing to set them off. Such are angry at anything or nothing. This is the most harmful kind of anger which can have dire repercussions, both on the mind and the body and shows a lower self in full control.

We should say that if we would be angry and sin not we should not be angry with anything but sin. We would hope that most of our readers will know what we mean by 'sin'. The Seven Cardinal Sins which the Chinese Sage Li Wang Ho enumerates in the book of his Teachings** which we have published covers the ground pretty well. But when confronted with sin, or with that which our social customs regard as sin, the wise man or woman shows pity, not anger. But that pity must not deteriorate into gushing sentimentality. For this is to fall into the error of those misguided philanthropists who make specious excuses for the criminal acts of the worst brute who ever stabbed a defenceless and innocent victim, often merely for the sake of giving vent to his or her greed and bloodlust.

Ordinary anger, often the result of bad indigestion, worry or great stress, is not a cause which leads the angry one to Hell, if by that we mean the lower realms of being which is the proper abode for the habitually angry. We all suffer from ordinary anger on occasion, and the man or woman who has never been angry in their life is a bloodless worm.

What does lead to hell is malice, spite and hatred, for such tendencies come from the lowest realms of all, where Satan holds court; however we may regard that embodiment of the principle of evil. The average person does not suffer in that way. Seneca once said that "He is a fool who cannot be angry; but he is a wise man who will not." So we may sum up this short meditation by saying that whilst anger is not necessarily evil, it is better to avoid it if we can.

LETTING GO

Many of us make New Year's resolutions. Many more often fail to keep them. Not that this should be an occasion for regret. If the intention is sincere and our will is strong enough, better luck next time! We are all in too much of a hurry nowadays.

So it is appropriate that on the first day of 2018, we publish another good contribution sent to us by a reader in the hope that it may encourage us all to 'let go' of the things that do not matter and grasp the great truths that DO.

http://www.occult-mysteries.org/letting-go.html

Our customary article has been taken from The Quest of Ruru, which is a firm favourite with many of our readers, as it is with us, who first read this sublime book more than forty years ago, and still find new truths in it today.

HOMEWARD BOUND

It gives us great pleasure to publish the three short inspirational poems sent to us by a new reader. We feel sure that the author's sentiments and the manner in which they are expressed, will resonate with many seekers after Truth and encourage them in their own journey on the Royal Road to Freedom and Liberation.

http://www.occult-mysteries.org/homeward-bound.html

In our customary afterword we briefly discuss the inspiration which gives rise to sublime poetry and whence it comes.

*************************************************************

The painting used to illustrate these poems is Rembrandt's 'The Storm on the Sea of Galilee', dated 1633. In 1990 it was stolen along with 12 other paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Degas from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, USA, none of which have been recovered.

CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM OCCULT MYSTERIES

We receive so many messages from our readers that we cannot possibly publish them all. The following message sums up our work so clearly and simply that we feel all our readers will appreciate it.

**********************************************************************

"Occult Mysteries is so important to many people as the stepping stone across the river of ignorance towards the Path of True Light. At Christmas, it seems a perfect time to once again thank you for your hard work and kind service. May we know each other in that Land of Light when the time comes."

**********************************************************************

You should be aware that our website is not a one-way venture. We as authors and editors, though unknown to you, benefit from the questions and kind messages we receive in all sorts of ways, and we take this opportunity to thank everyone who has written to us in the past, as well as those who may do so in the future.

The writer of the above message is also quite right to hope that we may know one another in the 'Land of Light'. Indeed, that is the only place true affinities can know one another as they really are, for however close relationships may be on earth, they are a pale shadow of the love and unity shared by those who dwell in the finer dimensions.

Those of you who have been blest with a glimpse of those Higher Realms where all is Beauty, Harmony and Joy and every tear is wiped away, will know what the writer means by the 'Land of Light'. Those who have not seen these indescribable glories may be sure they will do so in God's Good Time if they remain sincere and devoted in their search for Truth and Wisdom. For, as the Bible tells us, "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Corinthians 2:9).

Meanwhile, for us all, there are the Sublime descriptions of that Heavenly Realm recorded by the jewelled pen of J Michaud PhD, in Vision Six of The Golden Star. If you have not read these descriptions, or even if you have, there is no better time than the Season when we celebrate the Coming of the Prince of Peace, to read them again, and so refresh your mind on what awaits those at the terminus of the Path to the Light.

http://www.thegoldenstar.org/vision06.html

May Peace, Health and Happiness be yours this Christmas and throughout the Coming Year.

SEASONS' GREETINGS and BEST WISHES TO ALL OUR READERS

At this special season it is customary for us to thank our readers for the many kind expressions of appreciation they have sent to us during the past 12 months. As an extra 'thank you' we have published an amusing story which we hope you will all enjoy—The perils of Paganism—sent to us by Gabrielle Annunziato.

http://www.occult-mysteries.org/perils-of-paganism.html

A controversial Christmas Nativity exhibition which opened last week at the Church of St Salome in Islington, London, has raised howls of protest from angry visitors who have condemned it as 'immoral' and 'pagan.'

THE METAPHYSICS OF TALENT

In the ninth of his articles on the Search for Truth, John Temple continues his investigation of the hidden wisdom in the Bible by examining the Parable of the Talents in the New Testament.

http://www.occult-mysteries.org/talents.html

Among the many subjects covered in his afterword, John Temple considers undeveloped single talents, such as the man or woman who is all mouth. Such talk incessantly, but there is never the slightest sign of a single thought within such speakers' minds. We are sure you have met quite a few such persons yourselves!
