How Great Thou Art!

Rays of Wisdom - War And Peace Between Nations - How Great Thou Art!

Our own heart is part of the great living and loving heart of the Universe and like the great heart, our own eternally pulsates its light into the whole of Creation. The great heart is the intelligence of the Universe, the Father, the masculine first principle of God. He is abstract and his energy is the pure and invisible creative thought that once brought each one of us into being. The Mother is the feminine second principle through whom all worlds and its lifeforms are created.

The third principle is the Son/Daughter, born of the Father/Mother’s love, whose light comes alive in and animates all life the Father creates through the Mother. The Father places a spark of the Son/Daughter into each one of his offspring, for example you and me, so that we should evolve and slowly grow into the conscious awareness of our own nature and Divine origin. Before any world could be created, the Father had to create himself a Son/Daughter, a source of light and warmth, by whom his creations could be nurtured and maintained.

Spiritually, ignorance is darkness and knowledge is light. The Highest experiences itself through all Its creatures and as they slowly grow and evolve, the spiritual light of the Universe increases. Expressed in the most simple terms this means that God is constantly growing and evolving, the same as we are doing. In God and also in us Father/Mother/Son and Daughter are one and inseparable. All life, including that of the Earth, is imbued with the vibrations of this holy Trinity. Although to this day those of the Earth are extremely slow and dense, like a ladder they nonetheless reach up from every human heart towards the higher and highest levels of life into the heartmind of God. It is only because the Earth’s vibrations are so slow that matter, the Mother, appears to be solid to earthly eyes. In truth, every bit of it is nothing of the kind, as any physicist will be happy enough to confirm. And to enable human souls to move forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life, their energies have to be cleansed, purified and refined. Without this no progress is possible.

William Cullen Bryant, the American author and poet wrote: ‘My heart is awed within me, when I think of the great miracle that still goes on, in silence, around me – the perpetual work of Thy Creation, finished, yet renewed forever.’ Sharing his feelings, I see our world as one great a work of art. In spite of its size it is merely a tiny integral part of an even more gigantic masterpiece and a labour of love, and that is the whole of Creation and all worlds and beings contained within them. Everything that ever has been and ever will be is created by the loving creative thoughts and ideas of our Creator, the Great Father of all life. Through the Great Mother, with the help of the Angels, all things come into being. Her love and wisdom decide where and when. And the Son/Daughter, the Sun above and beyond the Sun, gives life to and nurtures and warmth to even the tiniest ones of its aspects.

Everything that is still unattractive and disharmonious in our world and in us is merely waiting to be made beautiful and harmonious, in its own sweet time. Therefore, let no-one despise these things, for they too have meaning and serve the higher purpose of teaching us to distinguish between ugliness and chaos and that which is beautiful and harmonious. The words of Judge Oliver Wendell Holmes come closer to my own perception of our earthly existence than any other definition I have ever seen anywhere: ‘Life is painting a picture and not doing sums.’

And should you now ask me: ‘Why is there still so much ugliness in our world?’ I would say: ‘Try to imagine the frustration of the Great artist, our Creator, if His/Her work were ever to be finished and could not be carried on, just because it had reached perfection. There would be nothing for Him/Her to do any more and that is unthinkable, as any creative artist is sure to confirm. The wonder and magic of evolution is that everything will always continue to evolve and move forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life, including you and me and our world.

We are in this life to find a new understanding and re-interpretation of the age-old concept of Gaia. Once more humankind is becoming aware of the true nature of Mother Earth as one vast living, breathing and feeling organism in which we, for as long as our earthly education continues, have our existence. Like us, she has a spirit and soul as well as a physical body. Our beautiful planet is but one of the many spiritual and physical manifestations of the Great Mother of all life. Our Divine Father/Mother are the nurturers and protectors of all life in the whole of Creation, the parts that are visible to earthly eyes as well as those which to this day are invisible to us. All are beloved children of the Great Spirit and each one of them is equally precious and unique.

I can never stop marvelling at the great wisdom and the loving care with which everything in the material world has been designed and is constantly attended to. I once had an Ivy Canariensis hedge in my garden, one of the slowest growing varieties whose main attraction are its leaves. To my astonishment I noticed that no two leaves were ever quite alike and that each one of them was indeed an individual work of art. On several occasions I tried to find two identical leaves in size, shape and/or markings – always in vain. Each leaf was yet another reflection of the great love of our Creator and the uniqueness and preciousness of all that is in the created world, including you and me.

When I look around and see Thy great work of art and labour of love, ever evolving to greater glory and beauty – a physical manifestation and a reflection of Thy great wisdom, beauty and love, then indeed sings my soul, my Saviour and God to Thee: ‘How great Thou art! How great Thou art!’
