“When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, I am in the heart of God.” Kahlil Gibran
The more we give thanks and the more we serve, the more we open our hearts. When we do this on a regular basis, light will begin to shine through us. We then become virtual radiators of the energy of Love, which the late Spiritual Master, Dr. George King termed ‘spiritual energy’.
Dr. King was ahead of his time, and one thing he taught in the 1960s was that the most important problem facing humanity was what he termed “the Spiritual energy crisis”, or a lack of this energy of the heart. He knew that if enough people were to radiate spiritual energy – through their compassionate prayers, thoughts, and actions – it would help and uplift others and there would be a growing desire to share, to serve and to heal. It is when we remain wrapped up in our own small worlds that we seem to forget we are One; that everyone’s problems are also ours. As one human family, we share in each other triumphs, just as we share in the failures. We share in crime and in wars, just as much as we share in compassionate actions. Our ever-changing karmic patterns improve with each selfless decision – and so too does the karmic pattern of humanity.
Spiritual energy is the energy we truly need on this planet – more than oil or gas or electricity. Dr. King taught that this is the precious power that heals, brings harmony, peace, and enlightenment to ourselves and our world. The beauty of this is that we don’t have to wait for the religious leaders or politicians to show us how to solve our problems. It is simple: just as we plug in a lamp and have light, so too can we plug ourselves into God through the Love of our hearts and radiate light. We are born to do this and, when we do this, we help and heal those around us – and, to some degree, the entire world is lifted.
We should never underestimate ourselves, nor should we underestimate the power of our hearts. Realize the incredible fact, as revealed through the work of the Institute of HeartMath, that your heart is an electrical organ which produces the largest amount of electrical energy in our bodies – forty to sixty times more powerful even than your brain! When we live more fully from our hearts, we are more powerful: we are strong, honest and true.
Living from the heart doesn’t just mean being nice. We can appear to be nice by burying our heads in the sand rather than saying what needs to be said. We can be nice by pretending all is well when it is obviously not. Obviously, we should always try to be kind and thoughtful, but one equally important aspect of compassion is to speak with the authentic voice of the heart, whatever the cost to us.
I was fortunate to be a close student of Dr. George King for over twenty years. He showed me the way of the heart through his example, his teachings and his global mission. He was a visionary and I know that in the future, he will be recognized and revered far more than when he was alive. It is usually the case with pioneers, and Dr. King was a spiritual pioneer.
In The Aetherius Society that he founded, we are celebrating 2019 as the Centennial year of his birth in 1919 and later this year his Biography will be published. I hope you can join me for the first lecture this year about this remarkable man and Master, and how his unique mission has laid new foundations of spirituality on this Earth.
Spiritual Master for the Aquarian Age will be held at The Aetherius Society, Royal Oak, on Friday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m. For further details, please see The Aetherius Society’s ad.
