“Solar Fire and Ice”

“Solar Fire and Ice”

    The Climatic Effects of our Sun and its Brown Dwarf Companion Among the many articles that landed in my in-box this week was a piece originally posted on the website of Electroverse.net, speculating that the record number of days without sunspots this year (“spotless days”) predicts a Grand Solar Minimum that will [...]

“Unity of Spirit Through Inner and Outer Development”

“Unity of Spirit Through Inner and Outer Development”

    “Now consider diligently how we can acquire and possess the most inward exercise of our spirit in the created light. The man who is well adorned with the most virtues of the outward life, and has risen into nobility and divine peace by inward practices, he possesses the unity of the spirit, enlightened by supernatural [...]

“When the Sun Spins in the Sky”

“When the Sun Spins in the Sky”

  The crowds at Fátima wait for a miracle on Oct. 13, 1917.(Image credit: Public domain)   Last Sunday was the anniversary of an event known as The Miracle of the Sun that occurred at Fatima, Portugal, a hundred-and-two years ago. Lest you think the event was isolated or insignificant, I would like to mention other cases of [...]

“Music of the Spheres Singing to the Soul”

“Music of the Spheres Singing to the Soul”

    “Many early instruments had seven strings, and it is generally conceded that Pythagoras was the one who added the eighth string to the lyre of Terpander. … “The Pythagorans believed that everything which existed had a voice and that all creatures were eternally singing the praise of the creator. Man fails to hear [...]

“The Light Body – Real, or Merely Poetic?”

“The Light Body – Real, or Merely Poetic?”

    I believe that to survive into the future, humans will have to activate their light bodies in the fifth dimensional state – having form and substance, but beyond flesh-and-blood bodies like present-day humans. Many traditions speak of humankind’s ‘fall’ and it seems that the hybrid offspring of otherworldly visitors [...]

“Healing Music for Body, Mind, and Soul”

“Healing Music for Body, Mind, and Soul”

    It is highly probable that the Greek initiates gained their knowledge of the philosophic and therapeutic aspects of music from the Egyptians, who in turn, considered Hermes the founder of the art According to one legend, this god constructed the first lyre by stretching strings across the concavity of a turtle shell. Both [...]

“Ocular Transmission of the Sun’s Light”

“Ocular Transmission of the Sun’s Light”

    In my last Blog I wrote about Sun-gazing, a topic which was fresh in my mind, having just attended the annual Cosolargy convocation during September. The ritual of Sun-gazing has had a recent surge in popularity. It was practised by a number of ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Aztecs. Modern-day practitioners [...]

“Illuminated Consciousness – The Mystic’s Goal”

“Illuminated Consciousness – The Mystic’s Goal”

    “In Illumination we come to the state of consciousness which is popularly supposed to be peculiar to the mystic: a form of mental life, a kind of perception, radically different from that of ‘normal’ men. His preceding adventures and experiences cannot be allowed the quality. His awakening to the consciousness of the [...]

“Will the Sun Lash Out at Us?”

“Will the Sun Lash Out at Us?”

    I write a lot about the benefits of the Sun, and feel just a twinge of sadness as I must also acknowledge that, just like the reputation of the Hindu deity Shiva, our star may be thought of as both Creator and Destroyer. It has lashed out at our planet in the past by way of solar flares causing geomagnetic storms, and some [...]

“Body as a Tool of Mind and Soul”

“Body as a Tool of Mind and Soul”

    “The body is but the machine used by the mind. If it be weak, the power of our thought may be largely used and almost useless in resisting its weakness. The mind is then the workman endeavoring to carry out his design with an imperfect tool. Eventually, this defective tool may derange and destroy entirely the workman’s [...]
