From Henry Jamison: Following Steiner in his discussion of the caterpillar turning to liquid light in the chrysalis before transforming into the butterfly, we can consider color to be “compressed light”. Meanwhile, electricity/radiation is “decayed light”, very dangerous to the forces of love and ever-increasing here….
it seems that the pineal gland is a kind of third eye and a producer of bows of color (which is borne out I think in yoga and also in experiments with DMT, which the pineal gland produces). It’s the sixth chakra, I believe. And even pretty conventional science corroborates the idea that fluoride calcifies the pineal gland and limits its function…so I’m trying to strengthen my back (straighten my spine), drink reverse osmosis water, wake up early and generally move toward cleaning house. In addition, I’m doing the rose cross and trying to live in the bow of color. Can’t hurt! I’ll be contributing my rose cross to the thought-seed now.
From Rev. Gisela Wielki: Ours is a starry country. We have the star-spangled banner. Our language is rich in star metaphors. We can be starry eyed. We know of stardust and stardom, of super stars and starlets, of Star Wars and Star Trek. We applaud Dancing with the Stars. We feel as people empowered to reach for the stars. We even shoot for the stars. We are the biggest pop star exporter around the globe, and we like to stargaze into the lives of our celebrities.
Some of our presidents, investors, Hollywood stars and others have had their private astrologers just to be sure the stars aligned in their favor, before making decisions.
But take heart, if being a star is not in your chart, be the sky. How would anyone even notice the stars without the night sky providing the much needed background for any star to appear and rise.
Still, the human desire for stardom has a deeper origin. The prophet Daniel in the Old Testament gives us an imagination of human beings shining like stars in the infinite Heavens.
Anyone who has ever seen the earth covered with freshly fallen snow on a full moon night, will not forget the brilliant display of a vast community of snow-stars covering the ground, making it look as if the starry heavens had come down to display on earth Daniel’s imagination of a future constellation of humanity.
To become star radiant as a human being here on earth is not about self-radiance. To become star-radiant is about finding the Star of Wonder, the Star of Grace and about joining forces with its light. It is about radiating heart’s love and about forming human constellations with other people. It is about living and relating in harmony with all members of humanity. “They who tie their destiny to a star, do not turn back.” (Leonardo da Vinci)
Humanity has a long way to go to manifest such an ideal. But when we allow such an ideal, such an imagination to kindle our enthusiasm, it will show the way to insightful action.
POD (Poem Of the Day)
How hard we strive for truth,
& once attained how easily we forget it…
I hold the fire as long as i can…
M nose fills with the smell of smoke & incense
I remember how it is to die & come again
Radiant as light walking on sand…
& then I live for today…
18 January 2021 – Martin Luther King jr. Day
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
1873 – the Deathday of Edward Bulwer-Lytton who I discovered thru a book that was influential to me as a young woman: Zanoi, A Rosicrucian Tale. He was an English aristocrat, a member of Parliament, 1st Baron of Lytton & Earl of Knebsworth. He was an enormously popular novelist, & a member of the English Rosicrucian Society, founded in 1867 by Robert Wenworth Little. He wrote Paul Clifford, published in three volumes on April 30, 1830, a story of a man who leads a dual life as both a gentleman and a criminal. The first edition was the largest printing of any modern novel up to that time, & it sold out on the first day. It was Bulwer-Lytton’s fifth novel, written when he was twenty-eight. The Last Days of Pompeii, published in 1934, was a very popular work that inspired at least 10 films, plays, and operas. Zanoni was published in 1842. Among its themes are Rosicrucianism, divine madness, love, the elixir of life, & immortality. The Dweller on the Threshold figures prominently. The Coming Race, published in 1871, was a work of science fiction later republished as Vril, the Power of the Coming Race. Several of Bulwer-Lytton’s phrases have become common usage, such as “the great unwashed” from the novel Paul Clifford, “pursuit of the almighty dollar” from his novel The Coming Race, and “the pen is mightier than the sword” from the play Richelieu.
