|In The Light Of Truth: What Seek Ye by GRAILMESSAGE: 12:49am On Nov 10|
WHAT SEEK YE
What seek ye? What is all this tumultuous agitation? It permeates the world like a ferment, and a flood
of books overwhelms all peoples. Scholars pore over ancient writings, investigating and pondering until
spiritually exhausted. Prophets arise to warn, to predict… suddenly from all sides people strive feverishly
to spread new light!
Thus it rages now over the troubled soul of mankind, not refreshing and invigorating. But scorching,
consuming, absorbing the last vestiges of strength still left to be afflicted one in this gloominess of the
Here and there also a whispering is heard, rumors of a growing expectation of something impending.
Every nerve is restless, tense with subconscious longing. There is seething and surging, and over
everything lies a kind of ominously brooding stupor. Fraught with disaster. What must it bring?
Confusion, despondency and ruin, unless a mighty hand tears asunder the dark layer that now envelope
the terrestrial globe spiritually. With the slimy tenacity of a dirty morass, absorbing and smothering
every ascending free light-thought before it has become strong; with the gruesome silence of swamp,
suppressing, disintegrating, and destroying every good volition even in the bud, before any action can
arise from it.
But the seekers cry for light, imbued with strength to cleave through the mire. Is turned aside and dies
away beneath an impenetrable canopy, assiduously set up by the very people who think they help. They
offer stones for bread!
Look at the innumerable books:
They do not animate, they only weary the human spirit! And this is the proof of the barenness of all they
offer; for whatever wearies the spirit is never right.
Spiritual bread immediately refreshes, truth revitalize and light animates!
Simple people must surely despair when they see what walls are being around the beyond by so-called
psychic science. Who among simple is to grasped the learned sentences and strange expressions? Is the
beyond, then, intended exclusively for psychic scientists?
They speak of God! But is it necessary to set up a university in order first of all to acquire the abilies to
recognize the conception of the Godhead? To what lengths will this mania, which is mostly rooted only
in ambition, drive them?
Readers and listeners stagger along like drunkards from one place to another unsteady, not free in
themselves, one sided, because they have been diverted from the simple path.
Listen, you despondent ones! Lift up your eyes, you who are seriously seeking: the way to the highest lie
open to every human being! Proficiency in learning is not the gate to it!
Did Christ Jesus, that great example on true path to light, choose his disciples among learned Pharisees?
Among the scribes? He took them from the sample, natural people, because they had no need to
struggle against this great delusion that the way to light is hard to master, and must be difficult.
This thought is man’s greatest enemy, it is lie!
Thus turn away from all scientific knowledge, where it is a question of what is most sacred in man, which
must be fully grasped! Leave it alone; for science, being a product of human brain, is piecework and
must remain piecework.
Consider, how should scientific knowledge, acquired by laborious study, lead to a Godhead? What after
all, is knowledge? Knowledge is what the brain can conceive. Yet how very limited is the perceptive
capacity of the brain, which remains firmly bound to space and time. Even eternity and the meaning of
infinity cannot be grasped by a human brain. Just that which is inseparably linked with the Godhead.
But the brain stands silent before the incomprehensible power streaming through all that exists, from
which it derives its own activity. The power which everyone intuitively perceives as a matter of course
everyday, every hour, every moment, whose existence science too has always recognized; whereas with
the brain, that with the knowledge and intellect, one seeks in vain to grasp and comprehend it.
So inadequate is the activity of a brain, the basis and instrument of science, and this limitation naturally
also affects what it produces, hence all science itself. Thus science does indeed subsequently help to
elucidate, classify and arrange all that it receives ready-made from creative power which precedes it,
but when it seeks to assume leadership or offer criticism, it must inevitably fail so long as it binds itself
so firmly to the intellect, that is, to the perceptive capacity of the brain, as it has done hitherto.
For this reason erudition, along with those who adjust themselves to it, always remains clinging to
details; whereas each man carries within himself, as a gift, the great inconceivable whole, and is fully
capable of attaining to the noblest and highest without laborious study.
Therefore away with this needless torture of spiritual enslavement! Not for nothing does the great
master exhort us “become like children!”
He who bears within himself the firm volition for what is good, and strives to give purity to his thoughts,
has already found the way to the highest! All else will then be added unto him. This requires neither
books, nor spiritual strain; neither asceticism, nor solitude. He will become sound in the body and soul,
free from all pressure of morbid pondering; for all exaggeration is harmful. You are meant to be human
beings, not hothouse plants which through one-sided cultivation succumb to first puff of wind!
Awake look around you! Listen to your inner voice! That alone can open the way!
Heed not the dissensions of the churches. The great bringer of truth, Christ Jesus, the personification of
divine love, did not concern himself with creeds. After all, what are the creeds today? A shackling of the
free spirit of man, enslavement of the divine spark dwelling within you; dogmas that seek to compressthe work of the creator, and also his great love, into forms moulded by human mind. This indicates a
dishonouring of divinity, a systematic disparaging.
Every serious seeker is repulsed by such things, because they prevent him from over experiencing the
great reality within himself. As a result his longing for the truth becomes increasingly hopeless, and
finally he despairs of himself and of the world!
Therefore awake! Shatter the walls of dogma within you, tear off the bandage, so that the pure light of
the highest may reach you undimmed. Then your spirit will soar aloft in exultation, jubilantly sensing all
the great love of the father, which knows no limitation of earthly intellect. You will at last know that you
are a part of this love; you will grasp it easily and completely, unite with it, and thus gain new strength
daily and hourly as a gift, enabling you to ascend out of the chaos as a matter of course!
HAVE YOU BEEN BLESSED?
