Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 7

TREES

After the last lesson of the Angel we all walked on for a very long time. At least it seemed a long time afterwards when we came to look back upon it but it may have been a mere flash. Who can tell? We had so many experiences, we met so many people, we . . . → Read More: Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 7

PEOPLE AND FLOWERS

After the Ruby Angel had given us his blessing he seemed to fade away out of our sight as he had done so many times before. We sat again on the log, silent and awed, yet with that radiant joy within our hearts which we knew so well in Heaven’s realm. The . . . → Read More: Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 6

THE FIRST INTENTION

The wood was green and cool and silent. Janet and I sat on a fallen log, enjoying the softness of the vine twining so thickly over its surface.

How long had we rested there? It was difficult to say. For a long time we had not spoken. Before that we had been . . . → Read More: Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 5

The setting sun was so bright upon the water that it dazzled our eyes. We were glad to settle down in the slight shade of a straggling tree, letting its feathery leaves act as a veil for us.

“How still it is,” Janet murmured. “And how shining bright,” I added.

“So still, so bright, so . . . → Read More: Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 4

THE ROAD TO FREEDOM

Janet and I sat beside the Ruby Angel, looking out toward the snowy hills. There was a tang in the air. The wind whistled among the bare branches of the trees at our feet, and then, rushing up the hillside, swirled icily about us. The grass on which we were sitting . . . → Read More: Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 3

THE MOUNTAIN AND THE STREAM

“Look at that swiftly-flowing stream,” our angel said. He leant against the trunk of a tree, his ruby gown glowing against the shadowed bark.

But how is this?” I demanded surprisedly. “Where is the high field and the mountain-range of a moment ago?”

Janet, too, was gazing round in astonishment . . . → Read More: Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 2

“WHAT IS MAN?”

“I will teach you of life,” said the Ruby Angel.

We were sitting in a field set high among the hills – Janet and I. Our favourite angel was with us, and so we were deeply content. I drew up my knees and clasped my arms around them, looking out over the . . . → Read More: Wisdom of Angels: Chapter 1

THE VIRGIN’S CROWN

We talked with our angel for a long time as we went wheeling rapidly on our way. He seemed particularly anxious to answer all our questions, encouraging us to range in thought over the whole of our ‘tour’ and to remember all the lessons we had learned. Then he taught us more . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 14

HAPTER THIRTEEN ON THE RADIANT WAY

When we had wished our guides a temporary farewell (for they told us that we should often meet) Victoria led us on, over the Radiant Way.

Happy as I was to be with her, I yet felt an inward hunger which at first I could not define. Janet, too, . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 13

THE ANGELS OF PRAYER

“How gentle is the Angel of Death!” Victoria said softly as we continued our walk.” I had to ensure that you put that in your book.”

“It is very good of you to be so interested,” I began, but she broke in laughingly.

“We love to spread the good news of . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 12

THE ANGEL OF DEATH

“Now we will continue our way, for I want you to meet another angel,” Victoria said.

This time we all walked together and again I was struck by the featureless landscape for there was nothing in it to register our progress. It reminded me of what it symbolised – the lack . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 11

THE ANGEL OF BIRTH

Presently, one by one, the Guardian – angels went away. Each was to return to earth with precious knowledge which would benefit her charge. When we were alone, Victoria said,

“Now I want to introduce you to another angel. Will you come with me?”

Eagerly we rose up, and began to . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 10

THE SPHERE OF ANGELS

For a time we continued our exhilarating journey through the Higher Void and then at last we came to the Sphere of Angels. Here, another surprise awaited us. In our journeyings, we had become accustomed to woods and hills, to valleys crossed with streams, and to broad rivers flowing through fields. . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 9
