“The genuine seeker of the Truth will encounter the ‘Cross of Truth’ –
a cross of two equal beams, encircled by a ring! The beams stand for two basic
currents in Creation. The vertical beam represents the positive, the masculine,
principle, while the horizontal beam represents the negative, the feminine,
principle. The activities of both principles make up a whole within the circle
of Creation. The masculine and feminine principles pulse in the basic currents of Creation. Within the eternal circular flow of Creation, the principles
awaken, develop, and mature to perfection.”

– Roselis von Sass
The writer draws inspiration from “The Grail Message” (In The Light of Truth) by Abd-ru-shin

Easter Thoughts #3 . . . The Easter Flower

Far from this foreign Easter damp and chilly
My soul steals to a pear-shaped plot of ground,
Where gleamed the lilac-tinted Easter lily
Soft-scented in the air for yards around;

Alone, without a hint of guardian leaf!
Just like a fragile bell of silver rime,
It burst the tomb for freedom sweet and brief
In the young pregnant year at Eastertime;

And many thought it was a sacred sign,
And some called it the resurrection flower;
And I, a pagan, worshiped at its shrine,
Yielding my heart unto its perfumed power.
The Easter Flower

“Do you know, Mary, that the Star is standing above our roof?”
“I know, Joseph.”
“And do you also know Whom this Star proclaims?”
“The Messiah!”
Joseph swallowed hard – but he said no more. He only bowed his head over Mary’s hand, which was lying on the blanket.
Mary felt the back of her hand grow moist with Joseph’s tears; she did not stir.
Soon the deep silence was disturbed by a timid knock. Joseph rose and opened the door.”

– Joshua Ben Yahweh. –

Moving Forward…….a Christian perspective!

Two of Australia’s indigenous creatures, kangaroos and emus, have something in common—they seldom move backward. Kangaroos, because of the shape of their body and the length of their strong tail, can bounce along with forward movement, but they cannot shift easily into reverse. Emus can run fast on their strong legs, but the joints in their knees seem to make backward movement difficult. Both animals appear on Australia’s coat of arms as a symbol that the nation is to be ever moving forward and making progress.

The apostle Paul called for a similar approach to the life of faith in his letter to the Philippians: “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (3:13-14).

While it is wise to learn from the past, we shouldn’t live in the past. We cannot redo or undo the past, but by God’s grace we can press forward and serve God faithfully today and in the future. The life of faith is a journey forward as we become like Christ and looking forward to the fulfillment of our expected desires.

I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”

I WILL GO ANYWHERE – PROVIDED IT IS FORWARD.

REMEMBER, KEEP FAITH ALIVE!!!
