The Divine Riddle
Teacher: Teacher Ophelius
Today we would like to talk about the most transformative quality there is in the universe, for this quality is the natural state of all realities and the nurturing force for which all creatures grow and become perfected. When this quality is transmuted from Divine Source and expressed by imperfect beings, they change; they grow; and become more perfected—more like the Source from whence it came. The further a soul is from perfection, the more transformative is the change when this quality is expressed and given value. On a world such as this one, where there is so much disparity and confusion, this quality, when boldly exercised and expressed without reservation, can heal all wounds, remove confusion without words, and bring peace to any situation. This quality gives meaning to life itself, for without it, there is no life.
The measure of any soul can be weighed by the moments where this quality was freely willed as a choice over all other alternatives. The meaning of its value becomes more understood as it is expressed and experienced and never does it become undesirable. All sentient beings require it in increasing amounts for healthy growth of mind, body, and spirit. This quality is the divine vitamin for which all systems draw vitality.
To control or withhold the expression of this quality from any sentient being is to starve that soul and divert its natural instinct to seek it—like caging a bird as it prepares for migration. To be in opposition to its transformative power is to grieve; to reject light, and to regress into darkness.
The expression of this quality is most diverse and can manifest in many forms. It is the catalyst for creation and the source of all opportunities. It is the one thing that is most needed for growth, yet is the most misunderstood and misapplied by material beings. All souls know that it is the greatest of qualities and yet do they persist in their ignorance to understand it and become it, for contained within it is all truth, all beauty, and all goodness.
A fetus grows automatically from the nourishment of its mother’s body and the Creative Life Force. The child recognizes only this quality as it emerges from the womb. All injury to a soul comes from the maladaptation of this quality, and confusion comes from the misinterpretation of its vital expression. To awaken to the reality of this quality is like a re-birth where injury is healed from the discovery of its revelation and the soul is returned again to its natural state of receptivity. You Students on the path are rediscovering your birthright and unlearning the confusion of your past. All growth awaits you in your quest to understand and learn the expression of this quality as it was intended for you as sons and daughters of the Most High God.
The answer to this riddle is within you, my dear friends, and the more you go within, the more understanding you will have of this most divine quality. It is for you to “allow” yourselves to express it and receive it—to change and become like it. If you know the answer to this riddle, then please write the answer on your heart and express it to those around you.
Peace to you,
