The Quest For God's Eternal Wisdom And Truth

The Quest For God's Eternal Wisdom & Truth - Rays of Wisdom - Relationshiip HealingEvery human soul is required to make its own contribution to the pool of wisdom and truth in the consciousness of the soul of our world and all worlds. Any wisdom and knowledge that is found by anyone belongs to all God’s children, not merely those of the Earth plane. In the fullness of time, each one of us in physicality is required to gradually evolve into a seeker of God’s eternal wisdom and truth. We all have to do our own work, as true and deep inner understanding of the higher and highest aspects of life can only grow from first hand experiences.

There are those who like to think that every bit of God’s truth that is worth finding has already been discovered and said by someone. That is simply not true. It is nothing but a cop-out and a lame excuse. We are not here to rest on the laurels of those – sage or otherwise – who came before us. Yes, we are to learn from the conclusions they came to, but at the same time we are meant to add to the learning they shared with us. Our task as aspiring healers and lightbringers consists of discerning that which is still relevant in the traditional teachings of our world from the things that are outdated and waiting to be shed.

We earthlings are not to fritter a precious lifetime away by endlessly repeating parrot-fashion what someone before us said and wrote, no matter how spiritually elevated or wise they were in their time. Many of those who like to think of themselves as philosophers in our world are fond of doing this. However, every human soul is meant to enrich any existing knowledge by adding their own observations and insights to it. That undoubtedly is why the legend of the Buddha, ca. 563 – 483 BCE, he instructs his disciples: ‘Do not believe anything simply because you have heard it, or because it is spoken and rumoured by many, or because it is found written in religious books, or because it emanates from your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. When you find after observation and analysis that anything agrees with your reasoning and is conducive to the good and benefit of all, accept it and conduct your life by it.’ The figure of the Buddha is a metaphor for human souls in their awakened and enlightened state. His last words are the most poignant ones, as valid now as they were then: ‘Go and work out your own salvation, with diligence.’

The Bible tells us in St. Matthew 7:7-8 ‘Ask and it shall be given to you. Seek and you shall find. Knock and it shall be opened to you. For whoever asks, receives and he who seeks, finds and to those who knock, the door is opened.’ That’s all very well, but where should we seek? Whom should we ask and where is this door? The quote is invitation to look inside ourselves, to get in touch with our inner guidance, the living God within. If it is truth we are searching for, our first requirement is learning to conduct our own life with integrity and utter honesty. We need to be as truthful as possible at all times and in every encounter, to the best of our knowledge and ability, to our highest point of consciousness.

The only things that are really worthy of sharing with others are the ones we ourselves have tested and tried in our own lives. By living through our own experiences alone can we establish, through the responses and feedback received from our inner guru, whether something is true or false. This is the only place in the whole of Creation where each one of us can and indeed has to find their own inner truth. Through the cells of our physical bodies the living God within each one of us constantly tries to guide and protect us. To progress and advance in our spiritual development, everybody has to learn to live their own truth or, as the Native Americans would say, walk their talk.

Words alone never were much good to anyone, unless they lead to and are supported by positive actions. As far as deciding when the right moment for one of them has come is concerned, all we need to do is follow our natural inclinations. Only by listening within is it possible to tell when we are good and ready for something, maybe the launch of a new project. When Saturn through our inner voice says: ‘Stop!’ we are well advised to oblige and pay attention. If we do not, our body can and does force us to a halt, as everybody experiences from time to time when illnesses and ‘accidents’ occur, which in truth are nothing of the kind.

But even then, as long as we are willing to help ourselves and apply the self-discipline Saturn demands from us, as soon as we have learnt sufficiently, we usually recover. Our body will then be only too happy to tell us when Saturn at last says: ‘Go!’ to release us into further adventures of our present lifetime. With the hard-earned skills and knowledge Saturn provides in the form of self-mastery, it will in time become possible to release ourselves from all prisons, especially spiritual and emotional ones.

The Aquarian ideals are friendship, kinship and siblinghood with all life and the spirit of this age bring us the awareness that the resources of the Earth belong to all who are there at any given time, to be shared by all. During this age, everybody will be required to act simultaneously as teacher and as pupil. Each has to lead in the things they excel at and follow others in what they are good at. It is for this reason that the Universe now presents all of us with ever more opportunities for sharing any learning we acquire with those around us. The very acts of sharing with and caring for others is living proof that our knowledge and words are not merely lip-service.

White Eagle in the Lodge’s Monday Thought 11.2.2013 tells us: ‘Truth is like a shining jewel that has many facets. Souls who have uncovered truth within themselves do not say: ‘I have the only truth’ but ‘I see the truth through my facet, but it has many facets along which its rays travel. What is true to me may not be  true for my siblings.’. That’s why we need to walk our path of service with tolerance, ready to observe and appreciate the truth that shines through every soul’s facet. At the core of truth lies the discovery that its central pivot is love, tolerance and an understanding that other people have their own truth as much as we have ours. Let the recognition of this be the keynotes of your service on the earthly plane.’

I wish for peace in our world, within and without.
May it flow from the heart-mind of God
Into the farthest, remotest corners of our world,
To bless and heal us all.
May God’s Wisdom and Truth shine into every heart,
The only place where truth is known.
