A Michaelmas thought
presented in lieu of a sermon on Sunday 10 October by Rev. Reingard Knausenberger
There is a war going on in heaven. What we see happening on earth is a reflection and result of a reality occurring in the world of spirit. The imagination given in the Book of Revelation chapter 12 is a relevant imagination to ponder in our time. These are the images: a process of giving birth, adverse forces ready to snatch up what emerges, the protection given to the ‘higher child being’ which is born, the war in heaven around this birth and the fact that ‘there is no place in heaven’ for beings which want to use these higher spirit powers for their own purpose.
So now it has become our reality and is blatantly apparent that here on earth, in this lifetime, we are experiencing an open attack on our humanity, on what distinguishes us as human and as moral, spiritual, evolving beings. There are real spirit beings not interested in our evolving; ‘dragon-beings’ not on a human trajectory, having their own agenda for the use of human power. As these inhuman dragon beings are at work within our soul, clarity and care in our thinking, discernment in our feelings and presence in our intentions for what we do is called for.
The dragon has been cast onto the earth, into the inner arena of human life. We can experience the resistances, the confusion, the fear and weaknesses: all these are signatures of such beings at work.
Yet, we have choice. We have freedom to choose. To do our own thinking. To choose what we think and infuse it with trust. We can decide what to do and what not to do, and know why. We can allow and disallow certain feelings to live in us. In small ways, in present-moment actions, we can take charge, creating our free power. This is the power that those spirit beings which are interested in our higher development can harness and magnify to support us.
When we focus all our attention on merely our earthly physical living and worries, we fail to provide the substance that the angelic realm requires from us in order to help us. Through deliberately using forces of choice, we can generate a power that the higher angelic world can use exponentially.
Under the leadership of the archangel Michael and how he deals with the dragon attacks, we can orientate ourselves. We come to recognise adverse conditions and events as opportunities. We can welcome them as opportunities to wake up, make the effort for choices which align us to our highest purest intentions.
As we bring our thinking into connecting with our heart, where gratitude resides, we begin to follow those spirit beings who are servants to the purpose of uplifting, yes, even consecrating humanity.
