Original article by Matthew Butler of The Conscious Reporter The brutal Paris attacks have been rightly condemned.

A miniature painting depicting St. Matthew recording the Gospel by Russian artist Andrei Rublev, c. 1400.

The featured exercise this week brings up a very interesting point and reminder about ancient texts - particularly those in the Christian tradition. (And yes, sorry I did miss a week for everyone who has been following these exercises! We got a little busy with things.)

Reflections on the Odes of Solomon from our Summer Solstice Ceremony

A painting of King Solomon who the odes are attributed to, but who is very unlikely to be their real author.

Mark and I celebrated the summer solstice yesterday. As we both sat in a circle of trees in the light of the morning sun and did our ceremony, I read a selection of verses from a little known esoteric text called The Odes of Solomon. This text has defied interpretation, and yet that morning every word was filled with a meaning that resonated very deeply with Mark. Although the author is unknown, it became clear to us that it was written by someone who had experienced the final stages in the path of the spiritual Son, and whose words were profoundly shared and understood by Mark who has also passed through most of … [Read more...]
