READ ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM IN FRANCE IN SEPTEMBER 2021

Great teachers of wisdom like Hermes, the Buddha, Zarathustra, or Jesus periodically constructed a spiritual bridge between the perfect and the imperfect world. In many legends, this in fact impossible, temporary link between eternity and time is referred to as the Grail, the chalice, or the divine mixing vessel: a protected field of life where seeking souls that have overcome all earthly resistance can find their way to eternity. In this book from the Crystal Series, the reader not only finds the legends of the West about Parcival and the Knights of the Grail of King Arthur’s Round Table, but also for instance the Persian legends of Kay Chosrou and the Chalice of Yamshid ‘that reflects the Universe,’ or the medieval Russian legend of Vsevolod, who became Grail King of the invisible city of Kitesj.

Mary and Martha, symbols for contemplative and active life

Rembrandt, Christus bij Martha en Maria, 1669. Teylers Museum

The touch of the Holy Spirit, its radiative activity, leads the pupil right to the heart of real life, to an intense activity — for the salvation of one child of man means at the same time the calling and awakening of many others.

You will be on the path as soon as the Holy Spirit has touched you with its radiation-power, when you have become receptive to it and react to it. And if you do react, the result will always be that you are led away into the desert by the Holy Spirit. This means a task in one’s own being and a task in the world.  Continue reading

Transfiguration: replacing the mortal man with the Spirit man — an excerpt from ‘Transfiguration’ by Catharose de Petri

Transfiguration is a gnostic method of accomplishing the endura, which is the process of completely replacing the mortal, separative, earth-born human being with the original, immortal, divine being — the true Spirit-Human-Being intended by the divine plan of creation.

It could be that some people cannot help feeling a sense of disappointment at this statement, because in a little corner of their minds they still harbour the thought that, through transfiguration, they might somehow be able to preserve their own selves. This is because they put their own interpretation on the words of Jesus the Lord, which they think mean: He who is willing to lose his life through the endura shall keep it through transfiguration. However, since transfiguration and the endura go hand in hand, what will be kept according to Jesus’ words cannot possi­bly involve any aspect of the dialectical being. Continue reading

Spirit and Holy Spirit — an extract from ‘The Seal of Renewal’ by Cathatrose de Petri

In the first chapter of the gospel according to John (1:32-34) we read:

“And John bore witness, saying: I saw the Spirit descending as a dove from Heaven and it remained on Him. I myself did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me: He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.”

In these words you will notice that a distinction is made between Spirit and Holy Spirit. Spirit becomes Holy Spirit only when it can descend upon a human being and remain upon him. This is an exceedingly instructive and remarkable evangelical fact and it is completely endorsed by the modern universal doctrine. Continue reading

The cross of light – introduction from the book ‘Spiritual Easter and Pentecost’ by Daniël van Egmond

Easter should actually be celebrated around the spring equinox. Between 21 and 23 March, the light of the day is exactly in balance with the darkness of the night. But because the determination of the exact day of this festival is based on the lunar calendar of the pre-Christian Jewish tradition – the first Sunday on or after the equinox on which it is full moon – Easter is often celebrated many days after the equinox. Nevertheless, its spiritual meaning is closely linked to the symbolism of this balance between day and night. The night symbolizes our daily life: as long as Continue reading
