Menorah began by reading a poem about a rose of which we unfortunately don’t have a copy. The Teacher then explained that wehave planted the rose within our own hearts. The prickly part, the thorns, are our emotions that keep on stabbing at us.
PLANTING A ROSE GARDEN - 9.2.2000
You are to understand what has just been read out to you, even though you are already on the path, even though you are caring, and indeed, sharing. This is an extremely important understanding for, in this little piece of poetry, you are being told that you are responsible. We say this to you over and over again. It is your responsibility to take yourselves out of the mire, out of the depths where you have allowed yourselves to go. You need to pull yourselves upwards in order to plant a rose. In other words, each time you share your loving unconditional light with others, you have planted a rose. So you should put into your minds the idea to plant a rose garden - a garden of roses, so beautiful, so big. Yes ... we agree with you. We hear some of you thinking that roses have got thorns and that means that you can be pricked when you plant them. Yes indeed you can, before the beauty of the flower and the beauty of the Devas who work with the flowers bring out that incredibly beautiful smell that makes you lift to a height, you can be pricked by the thorns.
This is another great lesson for you to understand. Even though there are those who turn against you, even though there are those who do not give you what you wish or what you want to hear, even though you are hurt in the effort to give the rose, to plant the rose, to make that beautiful rose garden. You will plant a rose if you so will it, if you use goodwill and if you learn to live with goodwill - totally the will to good. There is a very fine line. The will to good is the actual Ray of energy. It is the spiritual will to life, to love, to will life into being. The will to good is, in fact, the life principle.
Now you come down to the goodwill aspect which is what you are able to do. You create life in many ways - by your thoughts. If you think many thoughts over and over, that are negative, you will find yourselves becoming that particular negativity. It will become part of your psyche and that will affect your spiritual levels and bring you lower. In every instance of being, no matter what the topic is, you need to think “goodwill”. Examine the entire material, that is, the entire process of your thinking and see it from the point of goodwill.
When you do this, you will find that just about all your thoughtforms will start aligning themselves to the great love energy and all your thoughtforms will align themselves to the “will to good”. This will bring you into becoming ... simply becoming. You have planted the rose within your own heart. The prickly part, the thorns that you planted are your emotions that keep on stabbing at you. Those feelings of guilt, or anger, or that you are not getting your way of what you wish out of life. So you think, without realising and understanding that in actual fact you have activated and created the situation around you. This is an important lesson for you this day. It is very basic, indeed yes. Sometimes we need to come down to the very basic in order to advance to the very highest and higher and higher.
It is so important at this time. You are reaching a point, oh beloveds, when indeed, the great love energy now flows through from all those who are creating the Earth. There is such a level of love pouring through me that I need for one moment to stop, to allow this love energy to reach you, to fill you. Let the will to good work through you. Let the unconditional love principle be lifted, become part of your being. Let it flow now through the antakarana from your highest into your lower. Let the strength of this become part of your being.
The energies of joy feed into you now. Let the rose within you, within your heart, that small bud, begin to open. See the rainbow colours flowing through into the Centre of the vortex of energy and, as drops of rain, see it flowing into you, into your etheric, into your aura, cleansing all thoughtforms that hold and bind you from advancing forward. To do this work as true healers of the race and of the entire humanity, you need to become. Become the rainbow light, become the rose. It will take time but it will happen. A start has been made now. Remove all thorns. See only the budding rose in your heart. Be filled with love and let the love flow to every cell in your physical body, to your etheric levels and your astral levels.
Now plant a rose in the centre of the vortex - a mighty beautiful rose. As you do so, the energies flow out - north, south, east, west, then along the grid system of the Earth, releasing ancient old thoughtforms that hold this entire area in a bed of thorns. Release now. See this energy now flowing along the grid system and the ley lines, leading into the great Cheops pyramid, deep within where is hidden so much of the history of the Earth and humanity’s part in it. Let the cleansing take place.
We may say to you now, that the eyes of Cheops were antennae to Cosmic sounds and announcements, aligned to Aries and to the planets there in Leo. Energies need cleansing for the thoughtforms absorbed in the great pyramids of Egypt have been so violated and so negative, that those who go there are, to a degree, influenced even if they do go as so called spiritual beings. The cleansing must come from this area and only from this area. This is deeply hidden knowledge that cannot be divested. For as long as humanity deals and thinks that it is Egypt and the pyramids there, there is a safety against total destruction of the planet. The reason for the continual warfare over this land and the peoples of Israel being brought back into the land, those people who have the knowledge deep within and the abilities to ascend and once again create what needs to be created.
At this present time, cleansing is taking place and this knowledge will not be divulged - only to those who work within this vortex of energy and work with the new awakened fires and flames deep within the Earth, for you are the flame keepers. Descend now deep into the Earth, wearing the rosebud in your heart. Work with the flame. With unconditional love, guard the flame. Let the flame reach into the pyramids of crystal, releasing all old thoughtforms that have amplified the negativity through time. Let this now be transformed and released. Now releasing, bring to the surface into the vortex of energy and let the flame of energy brighten, in your hearts and in your minds and become one with ALL THAT IS. Become and lift, lift your energies into the vortex. You are one, one unit growing and expanding, opening as the rose, expanding, expanding. Let the work be done and the healing be done. Be so blessed. Softly, softly return to your physical state, retaining the great love within your heart, within your mind, clearing all negative thought. For you, there is nothing more important, oh beloved ones, nothing more important.
