We wish all of our valued clients, friends and silent supporters happiness, fulfillment and spiritual vigilance.
“….We are moved of various thoughts as one year passes and a new one begins. Not least is the consuming apprehension concerning earthly matters.
But this is not the concern that is meant here. It should be minor compared with that concern that is turned towards spiritual advancement and willing obedience to the Natural Laws of God.
Only this aim can form the basis of genuine concern, which is far removed from the concept of those anxieties that are related only to wealth and possessions, or physical well-being, worries which today oppress mankind and often torment them to the point of despair.
And yet man is able to smash with a single blow the tangle of grey earthly anxieties if, just for a matter of seconds, concern for his spiritual development were to impart that vigilance which instantly finds a way out of dull despair to the height of an existence worthy of man, free of tormenting anxieties about everyday needs and the constricting pressure which the tie with material substance exerts on the spirit of man.
Only he who is spiritually concerned is also spiritually vigilant! A man who is vigilant in spirit cannot be weighed down too much by everyday cares, or even dominated by them.
Spiritual concern has nothing oppressive about it, but is free of all the distorted concepts with which the human race has debased the true meaning of the word “concern”.
The intellect has supplanted concern for spiritual well-being with the brooding concern for material things. This has now grown to such a monstrous size through homogenous currents that it restricts and holds mankind captive completely.
For the human spirit dwelling in the Worlds of Matter, there is the ever-present danger of spiritual indolence. It is therefore a matter of necessity for him to be vigilant and to remain vigilant to a greater extent while away from his spiritual home.
But external influences and impressions alone are not enough to keep him inwardly vigilant, to stimulate, or eventually to rouse him from his onset of spiritual slumber.
There must also be the concern from within, to be willing to receive and turn to good account spiritual power influences, with the object of remaining constantly vigilant.
A man who closes himself to these processes is not concerned about advancing spiritually, because for this he needs spiritual power as urgently as daily nourishment for his body on earth.
Neither is such a human being then vigilant about absorbing and assimilating only good impressions, but in his indolence surrenders to bad currents which make him discontented and sullen, if they do not even fill him with envy and hatred.
Against this there is only one protection: constant vigilance of the spirit.
Where there is vigilance, where faithful spiritual watch is kept, be it in the higher and highest spheres or down here on earth, there is the highest vitality, there also lives the concern to further development and for swinging solely in the Will of God, never evading It, or disregarding It by the slightest thought.
Where true vigilance reigns there is joyful activity, happy fulfilment, constant readiness to do the good deed at any moment, wherever it may be, readiness to oppose evil, and unconditionally devoting the whole personality to the Light!
This is helpful by that concern which leads to alertness, which does not allow the spirit to become lax and to fall asleep – the true concern!
The most important problem facing mankind at the present time is undoubtedly the problem of voluntary spiritual indolence, linked with physical comfort!
Psychologists today speak frankly of the decline in spiritual abilities, of an “inflation” that pertains not the economy but to the psyche. The comfort which has arisen through over-cultivated affluence and through complete domination by technology was one of the great dangers to the spiritual development of mankind.
But what emerges from this for the present and future is accordingly real concern for the awakening of the spirit out of its dangerous twilight sleep. “(Adapted from Herbert Vollmann, A Gate Opens, Stiftung Gralsbotschaft Publishing Company, Stuttgart)
