- When Harry, the new immortal soul, is born in the
heart of the seeker for the ineffable indefinable
causeless cause, a new life-force enters the blood
stream. This life-force does not originate from this
universe, but emanates from the spark of the original
creative spirit, symbolised in Harry Potter by Lily.
The Lily in our heart was conceived by the Mind of the
Architect of the original universe in all its glory,
fathomless depth, and rapturous, indestructible
beauty. The Architect put himself into that mental
spark, and so it's just like him: perfect in every
possible way. Hence the glow that comes out of the
spark when it's rekindled also has those qualities.
However the human being whose blood stream it enters
is not perfect, and two irreconcilable forces meet -
the life-force of the perfect universe (in a weakened
vibration) and the life force of the mortal human
being with all his faults, his goodness, and his
ignorance. When they meet, this causes a storm in the
human being. A person in whom Harry is born will
wonder what's happening to him or her. Everything is
suddenly different. It's almost like the blood is
fermenting. Tremendous emotional storms rage through
the person. He may try to escape, but whichever way he
turns, the force is there. He may even try to escape
to a shack on an island off the coast, but to no
avail. Then suddenly, in the middle of the storm, he
receives an invitation.
This is a stage in the seeker's life which is
described very graphically in both Harry Potter and
"The Alchemical Wedding of Christian Rosycross". You
will all be familiar with the events on Harry's
eleventh birthday. Here is the same event in "The
"All of a sudden arose so horrible a tempest, that I
imagined no other but that through its mighty force,
the hill on which my little house was founded would
fly into pieces.
But inasmuch as this, and the like from the Devil (who
had done me many a spite) was no new thing to me, I
took courage, and persisted in my meditation, till
somebody in an unusual manner touched me on the back;
whereupon I was so hugely terrified, that I dared
hardly look about me; yet I showed myself as cheerful
as (in such occurrences) human frailty would permit.
Now the same thing still twitching me several times by
the coat, I looked back, and behold it was a fair and
glorious lady, whose garments were all sky-coloured,
and curiously (like Heaven) bespangled with golden
stars; in her right hand she bore a trumpet of beaten
gold, on which a Name was engraved which I could well
read but am as yet forbidden to reveal. In her left
hand she had a great bundle of letters of all
languages, which she (as I afterwards understood) was
to carry to all countries. She also had large and
beautiful wings, full of eyes throughout, with which
she could mount aloft, and fly swifter than any eagle.
I might perhaps have been able to take further notice
of her, but because she stayed so little time with me,
and terror and amazement still possessed me, I had to
be content. For as soon as I turned about, she turned
her letters over and over, and at length drew out a
small one, which with great reverence she laid down
upon the table, and without giving one word, departed
from me. But in her mounting upward, she gave so
mighty a blast on her gallant trumpet, that the whole
hill echoed from it, and for a full quarter of an hour
after, I could hardly hear my own words.
In so unlooked for an adventure I was at a loss, how
either to advise or to assist my poor self, and
therefore fell upon my knees and besought my Creator
to permit nothing contrary to my eternal happiness to
befall me. Whereupon with fear and trembling, I went
to the letter, which was now so heavy, that had it
been mere gold it could hardly have been so weighty.
Now as I was diligently viewing it, I found a little
seal, on which a curious cross with this inscription,
IN HOC SIGNO VINCES, was engraved. ["In this sign will
you conquer" - HR]
Now as soon as I espied this sign I was the more
comforted, as not being ignorant that such a seal was
little acceptable, and much less useful, to the Devil.
Whereupon I tenderly opened the letter, and within it,
in an azure field, in golden letters, found the
following verses written.
This day, today
Is the Royal Wedding day.
For this thou wast born
And chosen of God for joy
Thou mayest go to the mountain
Whereon three temples stand,
And see there this affair.
And shouldst thou not bathe thoroughly
The Wedding may work thy bane.
Bane comes to him who faileth here
Let him beware who is too light.
Below was written : Sponsus and Sponsa." [Bridegroom
and Bride - HR]
At this stage let me just reiterate the obvious:
neither Christian Rosycross nor Harry Potter are or
were real people, or meant to portray real people.
They are personifications. Harry personifies the new
soul in a seeker whose heart is open. Christian
Rosycross personifies the seeker himself. Hence the
invitation is not a physical invitation. It's an
invitation written in the heart. In message 262 I
talked about "the fleshy tables of the heart". When
the heart of a seeker is opened; by that I mean when
the spark of eternal life begins to glow again, it
prints a letter as it were on the heart. Paul says,
"you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written
not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God,
not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human
hearts." In other words the power emanating from the
pure spirit-spark writes a letter of invitation in the
heart. If we can understand the symbolism, we can see
that a seeker whose heart is open is a "marked man".
This person has a divine spark which has been kindled
and so is shining brightly; he longs for liberation
and he has drunk the living water. This has caused a
storm in his astral body because of the tremendous
difference in vibration between the astral force of
this universe and that of the original Home. At the
same time the power emanating from the Lily in the
heart has etched a letter in his heart. This letter
invites him to return to the Father's House, but it
also gives information. In other words, to cut through
the symbolism: the seeker knows what to do. He knows
where to go, what he needs on the way, and what the
purpose is. Both Harry and Christian Rosycross have to
travel through a gate to reach a large castle. Both
have to pass a large number of tests, as we know. But
I'll bet they both pass!
