Blessed are the peacemakers – The mystery of the Beatitudes, J. van Rijckenborgh

ORDER THE MYSTERY OF THE BEATITUDES

‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God’.

In reflecting upon this Beatitude, we must again free ourselves from all tendencies of habit. For is it not true that in hearing the word ‘peace’, our thoughts relate to the aspects of peace and peacefulness as they are known, loved and sought after in this world? Are peace and peacefulness not very desirable in a distressing world such as ours? Do we not look forward to lasting peace? And wouldn’t such a peace, with its results, be a state of blessedness for all in many respects? Aren’t our hearts burning with Continue reading

Blessed are the meek – The mystery of the Beatitudes, J. van Rijckenborgh

ORDER THE MYSTERY OF THE BEATITUDES

‘Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth’.

After the construction of the two pillars, the Beatitudes which follow are concerned with the methods by which the work must now be continued in order to achieve victory. Therefore, we think it is useful to repeat here that the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes in particular are designed for those who desire to walk the path of threefold regeneration and who, in fact, have already set their feet positively upon this path.

The golden thread of the free spirit – talk by Peter Huijs at the symposium ‘The golden thread of the free mind’

GET ACCESS TO THE FULL SYMPOSIUM VIDEO (MORE THAN 7 HOURS) FOR € 10,-

The high intellectual content and certainly also the high spiritual level of people such as Gadal and Garrigou, and many others we talk about in our book, finds its origins in an insatiable thirst for freedom:

    • freedom of thinking, of feeling and acting;
    • freedom of consciousness;
    • freedom also of religious experience and practice.

Gadal remembered a conversation around 1893 with Adolphe Garrigou, already very elderly, that characteristically illustrates this thirst for freedom. Gadal asked the old man why he and his Continue reading

Prometheus’s dream: the comprehension of nature – talk by Sergi Grau Torras at ‘The golden thread of the free mind’

GET ACCESS TO THE FULL SYMPOSIUM VIDEO (MORE THAN 7 HOURS) FOR € 10,-

Classical mythology recounts that Prometheus, son of the god Iapetus and the nymph Clymene, created humankind from clay in order to repopulate the Earth.

His act, however, aroused the wrath of Zeus, who punished Prometheus by chaining him up forevermore; he was nevertheless set free by Heracles.

The versions of the myth transmitted by ancient witnesses, from those of Hesiod to Aesop and Aeschylus, for instance, contain Continue reading
