The Radiant Way: Chapter 13

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

THE HOLY HOUSE

When our hymn was ended, our angel put his arms about us, holding us to his sides and then rose sharply into the air. At this Janet and I knew that we were leaving the Sphere of Dreams, and travelling by angel’s power.

“I wanted to make another visit,” Janet said wistfully. . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 8

THE LESSON OF THE TREE

Joseph and I talked together earnestly. I was so much attracted to his simple, wise nature that I asked if we could come to visit him again, after our book was finished. He consented gladly, telling me of a cottage he and the Master had built in the very depths . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 7

THE DIVINE CARPENTER

Even the birds seemed to sense our thoughtful mood as we walked on through the wood. They sat motionless on the boughs, watching us, or wheeled above our heads with faint calls to one another. This wood was so like a temple, too, that perhaps they were calmed by its spell. We . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 6

CHAPTER FIVE HOLY BREATH

In a moment we had risen into the air and were speeding over the river. By now the sun was high, but it was veiled in clouds so that the cool breeze and the misty sunbeams filled us with zest. For a while we followed the direction of the river, skirting . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 5

THE LITTLE ONE

When we reached the river, the first sound we heard, was that of childish laughter.

“Can it be the baby-angels?” Janet asked at once, for her mind was never very far away from them.

“Come and see!” our guide invited, leading the way to the bank through a fringe of tall rushes.

AN EARLY MORNING WALK

Very early the next morning, just as the sun rose to send its first rays through the open casement, our angel awakened us.

“Come,” he whispered, “we must not tarry for we must journey at once to the river bank before the sun is high.”

“Let us first say farewell to . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 3

CAROL’S GUEST

While we had been talking in this serious strain, the Sky had changed its glowing colours to a pearly gray and twilight began to steal into the room. The Scents from the garden came in more strongly, too, filling the air with fragrance.

Carol rose and silently spread a white cloth over the . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 2

IN THE COTTAGE

It was a long time before any of us spoke. We walked through the winding pathways of the wood, inhaling the fragrance of the flowers, listening to the music of the birds’ song. For a long way a glossy blackbird had been riding on my arm, pecking at me inquisitively and then . . . → Read More: The Radiant Way: Chapter 1

THE GREAT TEACHER

As we walked on through the wood, we were very silent. Janet was smiling to herself, looking peaceful and calm, but I cast puzzled glances at our angel until he said smiling: “Well?”

Now the question I had wanted to ask the Divine Boy came tumbling out. “How can He be a . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 17

THE DIVINE BOY

“Then you had died in your sleep,” I said during the pause which followed Pedro’s last words. Yes,” he said “suddenly I was free! It was wonderful. Jesus and I went hand in hand and I was too happy over my unaccustomed movements to notice the way, nor the length of our . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 16

PEDRO

Presently we came to an garden set close to the sea. There were not so many flowers in this, but mostly flowering shrubs, with shady trees leaning over broad lawns. These lawns sloped gently down to the beach. On the other side of the garden, a path led through trees and on to a . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 15

THE SPHERE OF DREAMS

When we reached the Sphere, our angel released us, and we walked together through a wood. It was very peaceful there and we did not speak, for there was much to ponder over and to see. The revelation of our teacher concerning visions had made me feel humble, for I had . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 14

JOURNEY TO THE STARS

“Now we are going on a long journey,” said our angel-guide. He put an arm around each of us, holding us to his sides and began to soar upward above the garden. By the way he held us we realised we were to travel on ‘angel’s power,’ and Janet asked: “Are . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 13

THE PLACE OF ARTISTS

“Now you are going to have a very interesting experience,” said our angel-guide as we rose steeply above the trees.

“It is all interesting,” Janet answered gratefully. “What a wonderful book we shall write in the Garden of Desire! How the hearts of men will burn within them because of the . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 12

IN THE PARK

Presently we said goodbye to Margaret and began to walk slowly on, our angel between us. We soon left the Pastimes behind us and came upon a park. Here and there, were arbours where people were talking together.

It reminded me of the Place of Vision except for the absence of perambulators. . . . → Read More: Heaven is Fulfilment: Chapter 11
