COMMUNIONWhen it was certain that the Master was going to die, his disciples wished to give him a worthy funeral. The Master heard of this and said, "With the sky and the earth for my coffin; the sun and moon and stars for my burial regalia; and all creation to escort me to the grave -- could I desire anything more ceremonious and impressive?"
He asked to be left unburied, but the disciples wouldn't hear of it, protesting that he would be eaten by the animals and birds.
"Then make sure you place my staff near me that I might drive them away," said the Master with a smile.
"How would you manage that? You will be unconscious."
"In which case it will not matter, will it, that I be devoured by the birds and beasts."Anthony de Mello, S.J.MORSEL:The free man is he who does not fear to go to the end of his thought.Leon Blumv v v* This is made possible in part by Scott Reeves.Create A Beauty-Full Life, One Day At A Time!
Love, Respect, Cherish and Support 'All' Life!Minister Baba Kundi Ma'at-ShambhalaMeditation for this 2002-07-30"Once upon a time man lived in close connection with nature and was therefore able to penetrate its secrets. He would, for instance, come to a spring and stay there a long while. He would look at it as it flowed, alive, clear and fresh, and he would listen to its murmuring. And in doing so he slowly found a connection with the soul of the water, the soul of the spring. He did the same with fire, the sky, the earth and trees: he watched them and listened to them. People today, with the (so-called) progression of civilization, have lost this relationship with nature, which is a great shame because in having reached this state, they are depriving themselves of all the life that circulates in the universe and speaks to them.
Try to become aware and listen attentively to the language of nature. Even if you feel you understand nothing; that is of no importance, the important thing is to open yourself up, because then you will be making ready the subtle centres that will one day bring you into contact with universal life."Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov
GOOD MORNING BELOVED!I LOVE YOU!Baba Kundi Ma'at-ShambhalaTHE SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES
"The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these, understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open."
The Seven Hermetic Principles, upon which the entire Hermetic Philosophy is based, are as follows:
I. THE PRINCIPLE OF MENTALISM
ll. THE PRINCIPLE OF CORRESPONDENCE
III. THE PRINCIPLE OF VIBRATION
IV. THE PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY
V. THE PRINCIPLE OF RHYTHM
VI. THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
VII. THE PRINCIPLE OF GENDER
These seven Principles will be discussed and explained as we proceed with these lessons. A short explanation of each, however, may as well be given at this point.
I. The Principle of Mentalism
"THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental."- The Kybalion
This principle embodies the truth that" All is Mind." It explains that THE ALL (which is the Substantial Reality underlying all the outward manifestations and appearances which we know under the terms of "The Material Universe"; the" Phenomena of Life"; "Matter"; "Energy"; and, in short, all that is apparent to our material senses) is SPIRIT, which in itself is UNKNOWABLE and UNDEFINABLE, but which may be considered and thought of as AN UNIVERSAL, INFINITE, LIVING MIND. It also explains that all the phenomenal world or universe is simply a Mental Creation of THE ALL, subject to the Laws of Created Things, and that the universe, as a whole, and in its parts or units, has its existence in the Mind of THE ALL, in which Mind we "live and move and have our being." This Principle, by establishing the Mental Nature of the Universe, easily explains all of the varied mental and psychic phenomena that occupy such a large portion of the public attention, and, which, without such explanation, are non-understandable and defy scientific treatment. An understanding of this great Hermetic Principle of Mentalism enables the individual to readily grasp the laws of the Mental Universe, and to apply the same to his well-being and advancement. The Hermetic Student is enabled to apply intelligently the great Mental Laws, instead of using them in a haphazard manner. With the Master-Key in his possession, the student may unlock the many doors of the mental and psychic temple of knowledge, and enter the same freely and intelligently. This Principle explains the true nature of "Energy," "Power," and "Matter," and why and how all these are subordinate to the Mastery of Mind. One of the old Hermetic Masters wrote, long ages ago: "He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on The Path to Mastery." And these words are as true to-day as at the time they were first written. Without this Master-Key, Mastery is impossible, and the student knocks in vain at the many doors of The Temple.Three InitiatesCopyright © 1908\AFFIRMATIONI Take The MASTER KEY and Unlock The Many Doors Of The Mental and Psychic Temple Of Knowledge.I Enter The Mental and Psychic Temple Of KnowledgeFreely and Intelligently!Baba Kundi Ma'at-ShambhalaCopyright © 2002
