    The Virtues Flowing Forth Through God-Love
    Saint Germain states in “Saint Germain on Alchemy For the Adept in the Aquarian Age” by Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet:
    (p.309) Remember, true Love is the great magnet that draws forth the Power of God’s heart charged with his holy Wisdom. The secret of the evocation of Power, then, really lies within the heart of Love.
    (P. 315) Love is more than an effect or lesser causation, it is First Cause and the point of Light beyond all light and darkness. Love is all Love excelling beyond Love’s visible expressions and interchanges. Love is the unbeatable cosmic force!
    What virtues to you experience through the cosmic force of Love? What virtues do you identify as the “12 within the 12”? How do you experience them in your life?

    ♥ Characteristics:
    What I experience as Characteristic in the 12 within the 12.

    In exploring the Virtues I will take this list with me during the coming months ahead.
    I assume it will grow and therefore I will post it every month on the forum.

    • Characteristic to me is that every Virtue in itself has the potential to Embrace the total.
    • The virtues are profoundly connected with what I call, soul expression.
    Through soul expressivity and soulfullness (and the Way and Ray we are) we become the radiant, emanating virtues ones.
    • Virtues can be experienced when being in the Now, in contact with the I AM Consciousness — and one with the level in which you experience the Now, your own coscious awareness of heart, soul, mind and Spirit.
    All of these levels have their own fullness and add their own color, dimension, nuance, perspective, variegation and emanation.

    A possible virtue of God-Love to me is: the Conscious use of the Muse.

    (It's not easy to translate all of this in English, so please forgive me for all of my mistakes).

    ♦ The Conscious use of the Muse —
    It is the consciousness from which every inspired activity is born.
    The muse itself can be expressed in various artistic and creative ways.
    The Conscious use of the muse can raise the soul to great heights, not only in an artistic sense.
    It can raise you to realms above the rational.
    It often brings me greater sensitivity and heightend states of awareness. And the best way for me to do so is to simply muse upon things and enjoy the process. Enjoying what I am doing, seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting and becoming aware in the process. And to be present and open.

    My soul is a sensitive soul. I like to be poetical, I love music, singing, I love the arts and I like to express (in a variety of forms) my own connection and inner oneness and all of its richness and depths. To feel and know and grow and be alive in the everlasting consciousness of God in a personal and cosmic way gives me, great, great joy. It brings my soul to spherical awareness, Buddhic awareness, the United Consciousness of Twinflames . . . and profound richness.
    Within this streaming consciousness where the soul is totally free, you can meet all who are One as well within the living Consciousness of God. They simply join you and resonate with you. There is a saying: 'Like atracks like' and this is certainly true in the inner planes of Being.

    Therefore I would like to share with you an encounter with three angels of Joy.
    It was my own God-Joy, its fullness and the great desire to jump into the Cosmos to express my Joy in a dancing, gliding, expressive way of noble grace. Totally one with my movement, there appeared 3 angels of Joy who announced that my God-Joy had attracked them. They call themselves my 'lady friends'. They express themselves in movement and dance, but also musically, in sound, sounds of horns, splashing laughter and joy. They appear to be a little naughty and wantonly in a way, but at the same time they are distinguished as well. I think Americans might find the expression 'Southern Bells' appropriate here. But now added with teenagerbehavior, with a lot of laughter, tumblings and bursting laughter(?). But in this case extraordinary cosmic and freely expressed. 'The Everpresent Joy is always with us' they proclaim. 'It is the laughter of God'.
    Lateron they express their names whom I would like to keep for myself. 'We truly express the Flame of Everlasting Joy', in which they use every possible form of expression. They can easily change themselves into whatever instrument or sound. 'We disguise ourselves constantly without the necessity to change'. 'We create Joy and we generate Joy'.
    In this context my desire for years to be a conductor and its underlying essence becomes clear to me.
    In the meantime there has arrived a fourth angel and they also have given me a name and place in their group. Our joint ladygroup has a name as well. We are having great fun in expressing the Joy of Everlasting Life in the shouting of trumpets, the sound of horns, in jubilate and shouting, in waterfalls of roaring and clattering sounds of Joy, in chimes, carillonsounds and fireworks. It is the feeling of being a huge brassband or orchestra all by yourself. Yes, we truly express the Flame of Everlasting Life and Love and Joy. And we touch life, we cherisch life, we raise life and we embrace life. Amen.

    Qualities of love
    I found a beautiful set of verses about virtue and since I found it today, I put it in as God love.
    This is chapter 4 of the Hua Hu Ching, The Unknown Teachings of Lao Tse, translated by Brian Walker, 1992.

    "Every departure from the Tao contaminates one’s spirit.
    Anger is a departure, resistance a departure, self-absorption a departure.
    Over many lifetimes the burden of contaminations can become great.
    There is only one way to cleanse oneself of these contaminations, and that is to practice virtue.

    "What is meant by this?
    To practice virtue is to selflessly offer assistance to others, giving without limitation one’s time, abilities, and possessions in service, whenever and wherever needed, without prejudice concerning the identity of those in need.

    "If your willingness to give blessings is limited, so also is your ability to receive them.
    This is the subtle operation of the Tao."

    I find this explanation of practicing virtues by offering assistance of others as a wonderful manifestation of God-love. As another famous master (KH) has said, “It is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”

    Greetings Claire, David and all who participate,

    Because of a time difference of 8 hours I can not join you on the live webinar. So I view it afterwards in my own time. Yesterday I viewed your 2e class and I enjoyed it. Thank you all.

    ♦ Soulfullness —
    To me this is a virtue of God-Love as well.
    Last year I was playing a bit with this concept, musing upon it. And as I was listening and tasting it I received a beautiful aphorism:

    The fullness of the soul is the playing field of the Spirit.
    This says it all.

    ♦ Heartfullness —
    I believe this is another virtue of God-Love.
    In a few days I hope to tell you more about what these states of being mean to me personally. (I don't feel well right now).

    ♦ Soulfullness —

    (Again, it’s not easy to translate this).
    Soulfullness is born when we express all of our soulfaculties and sensitiveness. That is to say: In the expression and the flowering of all of our soulfaculties and soul-sensitiveness we express our love for life, our Joy of living, our communion with life, our creativity, our playfullness, laughter, our connection with life, appreciation for life and all that is dear and near and precious and meaningfull to us. Those kind of expressions in which we feel FREE or can easily BECOME free, in which there is the Joy of living — and the femininity and sensitiveness of the soul can be expressed.

    Musing upon Soulfullness, I have the impression that it can be seen as a cirkel consisting of six pieces (like a pie). All have their own faculties and way of being. In our Soulfullness we are able:

    • To commune and communicate with all of Life, in personal ways and cosmic ways.
    • To feel gratefull for life, the existence of life, wherein the soul can intone hymns of praise to life.
    • To forgive, say sorry and start anew.
    • To have profound insight and glances in the depths en depth psychology of the soul.
    • To alchemically create (via our imaginative faculties) in dialogue with God and his creation.
    • To be free to work and play and travel on the inner planes of Being.

    So God-Love and God-Freedom and the playfullness of the soul coincide here.
    The term 'seat of the soul’ (the chakra of God-Love) is a very interesting term. To me it is the soul who is in touch with the fullness of her soulbeing and her femininity. To abide within the seat of the soul I experience as ‘the soul who expresses and radiates forth her soulfullness and her God-Freedom'. It is the soul who shows her colours and colourfullness.

    I love my way
    and I love my ray.

    I love my walk
    and I love my talk.

    I move with the flow
    in which I continuously grow!

    Can simplicity also be seen as a virtue of God-love?



    Quote from Leonardo da Vinci: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

    Some of the virtues of love to me is as follows:
    enthusiasm
    tenderness
    grace
    charity
    mercy
    gratitude
    laughter (a smile)
    tolerance
    brotherhood-motherhood-sisterhood-brotherhood
    obedience
    beauty
    admiration
    affection
    devotion

    Love is what you see and feel when your say hello, when your baby opens their eyes for the first time and you gaze into eyes of pure love, a new arrival from heaven! Love is when you look into the eyes of your mother, the eyes of pure love and you say good bye, because she is returning to that place, where the all consuming love of God abides.
    I attempt to incorporate love in every thought, word and deed. Even when things seem to be straining every aspect of my being, I try to see the love in it; the medicine is a lot easier to swallow. I call it the love pill! It's pink with a ruby center!!

    My list of Virtues:

    · Having Reverence for Life
    · Devotion
    · Cherishment
    · Mercy, compassion
    · Soulfullness (and all of its sensitiveness)
    · Conscious use of the Muse (inspiration, creativity, beauty etc.)
    · Surrender
    · Sacrifice
    · Service
    · Selflessness
    · Happyness (being Joyfull and full of life)
    · Generosity

    Caracteristic to me is that every virtue can be used in a direct and practical way —
    But surely can be experienced as an all embracing state of being as well. Experiencing fullness, I believe, is key here.
    In addition to this: wherever you can ad fullness to a word (like heartfullness, mindfullness, soulfullness, cheerfullness, rightfullness, gracefullness etc.) and experience and cultivate this fullness within, there is a virtue to be known.

    By experiencing fullness (all-around) you can see in an holistic way.

    Hello Claire,
    I was wondering on this first day of Spring, would you be willing to share your list of virtues and experiences with us also? Maybe at the end of every month? before the next class? I surely would appreciate this.

    Februari 28, one month ago, I promised to write something about heartfullness, what I consider to be a virtue of God-Love also. Till now I have’nt done so. Therefore I will post it on this page, as well on the page of God-Love.

    Again, pardon me for my English, it is not my native tonque.

    ♦ To me heartfullness is born when you center in the heart, in the sacred equilibrium of the heart, where you expand your presence all-around in a circumference of 360˚.This is the place where you find inner balance, where you embrace Life and where you embrace the allness of what you are and have to become. In one of my contributions on this forum I wrote that my quest for inner understanding or inner path, started at an early age. Soon I noticed that the heart is a doorway or passage to immeasurable spiritual realms. And that our thinking, the use of our mind is secondary, of minor importance in this. The use of the senses (by which we experience and explore our inner beingness as well the capacity of our heart) does’nt really differ from the way we use them in the physical world. It is different herein that our inner sensory perception or observation calls for a more subtle, precise and sophisticated attunement than we use in the world.

    ♦ The development of (what I call) meditative mindfullness, being consciously present in the Now, is perhaps one of the main virtues a human being has to develop to start his journey within. This search is often supplied by the outside world or developed by the ego (I am not sure how to translate this), while meditative mindfullness is a state of being from which our inner being or inner path will reveal itself naturally.

    What I notice is that the meditative state of mindfullness enables your heart to improve and refine itself more and more in becoming an instrument in exploring the inner realms of being within.
    So it can become
    a feeling and sensing heart
    an exploring and seeing heart
    a hearing and listening heart
    a speaking and interpreting heart
    a tasting and discriminating heart
    a scenting and attuning heart

    In a personal and very cosmic way.

    So to me there is a great interconnection between heartfullness and soulfullness and meditative mindfullness. When you live through the heart the soul will expand and when you live through the soul the heart will expand.
    And it is through soulfullness and heartfullness that we have to search and taste and interpret the 12 virtues within the 12. It is not being done by making a list every month only. Everyone’s heart is a separate entrance to the inner world that is to be explored by each ones own heart. This is why there are no records of routes or maps from the inner worlds. But sharing our inner experience can help each one to discover more and therefore to interpret more than each can do on his own — alone.

    In the beginning it may be necessary to witdhraw your attention from the world regularly to turn it more inwardly. But after a while it will become very natural (especially when doing simple tasks) to maintain this state of being while (for example) doing the dishes, ironing clothes, travel by train, work in the garden etc. After a while you will be able to stay attuned to your inner being and its conversation, while at the same time you are functioning in the outer world as well.



    I personally experience fullness of heart in a variety of ways. An impression —
    As an intimate residence
    As a temple to celebrate
    As a garden to walk in
    As a room of silence and seclusion
    As an inner space without any borders
    As a retreat for reflection and contemplation
    As a place to celebrate my Love for Life and the Joy of living
    As a spiritual meetingplace with all who are One as well
    As a fort or save place
    As a startingpoint for cosmic traveling
    As a place where time has no influence
    As a timeless place where past, present and future converge
    As a place that is all embracing

    So recapitulating I see:
    ♦ Soulfullness as a virtue of God-Love
    ♦ Heartfullness as a virtue of God-Love
    ♦ Meditative mindfullness as a virtue of God-Mastery
