    The darkest hour is always just before the dawn and sometimes we wallow in the gloom of our slumbering state, only to be jolted back into life when struck by the Light. In my case it was after a long run of misfortune, a time when the light of day seemed barely perceptible, when I staggered out of my tunnel of despair and [...]

“Divine Science of Mathematics and Harmony”

“Divine Science of Mathematics and Harmony”

    “To Pythagoras music was one of the dependencies of the divine science of mathematics, and its harmonies were inflexibly controlled by mathematical proportions.

“Divine Child and the Awakened Soul”

    “The Divine Child which was, in the hour of the mystic conversion, born in the spark of the soul, must learn like other children to walk. …There are many eager trials, many hopes, many disappointments.

“Transformation of Matter, Not Destruction”

“Boundless Light Before the Darkness”

“Boundless Light Before the Darkness”

    “There is no boundary for light. It was unknown when it began. Nothing was when light was not. Nothing was when radiance was not. Nothing was when life was not. There was never a boundary for light. Nothing was when water was not. “Water is prior to darkness. Prior to darkness is water. Nothing is without an end. No [...]

“Life Force In Everything, Powering Everything”

“Life Force In Everything, Powering Everything”

    The basic creative energy of life—life force—bubbles up and courses through all of existence. It can be experienced as open, free, unburdened, full of possibility, energizing. Or this very same energy can be experienced as petty, narrow, stuck, caught. Even though there are so many teachings, so many meditation, so many [...]
