Theosophy and Petition: Africa Seminary 5-7 August 2022
notes and ideas captured by Anne Gilham
Understanding the Human Being allows us to walk the Christ path.
Our different bodies, Physical, Etheric, Astral and I-organization, each have their role in our development. But we must become active in our striving to live in the presence of God and express the divine in us.
The Wisdom comes when we penetrate our inner space with our thinking finger - Trust the processes.
There are 7 esoteric (metaphorical) trees to describe the different human bodies and our future development. The Name Solomon describes what it is to be a human being. What we strive to become
Words (in Greek) from the 7th Chapter of Revelation that describe the inner process – The Aim to develop and transubstantiate
Petition is a claim
We must Lay claim to that which belongs to us. My capacity to be human. The work we have done in the processes above.
Seek to take hold of our goal. To connect with ‘my I’ with God’s grace in me – Not what God can do without my participation
We are an expression of God. All the power of God is in us. We must mobilize this power of God
Then the grace can work in us
Ask: ask questions that grow a living relationship with the Divine within you -And it will be given to you
Seek: to advance on the path of self-development -And you will find
Knock: lay claim to your spiritual path with consistency and reliability – And the door will be open to you
For everyone who truly asks, Receives
Who earnestly seeks, Finds
And who humbly knocks, to them the door opens
Be active in your striving to live in the presence of God. Practice renewal in Petition
