PEARL April 2020

Pearl magazine delves into questions that agitate humanity. In these triubled times of ferment accumulating from all sides, when everything is at a boil at the same time, unparalleled in history, a quest runs through the people: many yearn for a cleansing of human foolish wilfulness and to see a better time; more and more people want to revert to the 'natural', to adapt to natural living conditions; people want to make life new, healthy, more beautiful and fairer. How many people would heave a huge sigh of relief if through their own sober, objective and unbiased scrutiny they could unerringly recognise comprehensive answers to burning human questions, and answers of such completeness and consistency as to enable them affirm their lives on the path of true upbuilding to only what is good!

rigidity or movement?

There can hardly be any human being left on earth who will not acknowledge that the unprecedented number and concentration of extreme upheavals in all areas that are dragging the world into the vortex of destruction and hardship, with misery and death everywhere, are not extraordinary or who would still insist that such events, past and present, are no more than everyday occurrences. Such a person can only be left to continue to live in such delusion or denial. Everyone else will either be overcome by fear and anxiety, losing all hope, as we see our futures, dreams and aspirations crumble before our eyes, or will use these events as a catalyst for deep reflection and introspection and call into question, not only our own motivations, aspirations and goals, but…

But now at last we are very near the hour when the next great epoch in Creation sets in, which is unconditional upward-swinging, and brings what the first epoch with the coming into existence of man should already have brought: the birth of the spiritualised complete…

still streams

Observing people today, one could divide them into two groups. Firstly, those who are completely numbed, paralysed or rigid in the swinging of their spirit and can only think in traditional ways. These are on a downward trajectory, of which they remain unaware because they offer no resistance, since their sprits are asleep. The second group are those trying to escape from the downward-pulling trends, of which they are vaguely aware, but no longer have the strength to seriously seek the path of Truth. Their spirits are feeble because they are neither asleep nor fully awake. When we speak of a paralysis, we need first of all to ascertain that in all faiths there is a rigid adherence to traditional dogmas. There is no difficulty in admitting that standing still in…

the future kingdom of peace

Even though we are to live in the present, we do at times give some thought to the future. Anyone for once rather depressed by the ever-worsening state of confusion on earth asks himself what shape the future will take. Is it still possible at all to emerge from these sad conditions of the present time? True, people speak of a Kingdom of Peace that is to come one day, but what will it be like in such a Kingdom? There is a promising future for all human beings who still retain within them a spark of longing for the Light; it is based on the no longer distant earthly Kingdom of Peace of a thousand years, whether human beings are to experience this in their present earthly garb, in a…

look forward!

The tendency with many people after they are a little ‘advanced in years’ is to look backward and with regret. The ‘looking’ should be the other way – forward. If you want to go backward in every sense, mental and physical, keep on cultivating the mood of living regretfully in your past life. It is one chief characteristic of the material mind to hold tenaciously to the past. It likes to recall the past and mourn over it. The material mind has a never-ending series of solemn amusement, in recalling past joys, and feeling sad because they are never to come again. But the real self, the spirit, cares relatively little for its past. it courts change. It expects to be a different individual in thought a year hence from that it…

the subjection of women

If the family in its best forms is, as it is often said to be, a school of sympathy, tenderness, and loving forgetfulness of self, it is still oftener, as respects its chief, a school of wilfulness, overbearingness, unbounded self-indulgence, and a double-dyed and idealised selfishness, of which sacrifice itself is only a particular form: the care for the wife and children being only care for them as parts of the man’s own interests and belongings, and their individual happiness being immolated in every shape to his smallest preferences. What better is to be looked for under the existing form of the institution? We know that the bad propensities of human nature are only kept within bounds when they are allowed no scope for their indulgence. We know that from…
