Autumn and Freedom leaflet
Wisps of mist, the so-called ‘White Ladies’
Wander over the tranquil land
Embrace me, take me by the hand
And whisper to me to turn inside
Where I can learn much more about myself.
The noise of the summer crowds and gruelling heat
Sometimes made it hard to be in peace.
Walking quietly through the autumnal forest
I get farther and farther away from everything.
Free from all thoughts and venom
Back to unspeakable, wordless being
Stripped of illusions, of all appearances.
Under my feet the crackle of fallen leaves.
Hey look over there, a fleeing deer!
Around me the forest shows a rich palette of colours
I deeply inhale the air so full of herby scents
Enjoying all this splendour.
Everywhere are pine cones, beech-nuts and acorns
And in the sand I see the prints of hoofs and little paws.
I become aware of the silence and the beneficent peace
Descending deeper and deeper into me
A little more with every step I go
Later, at home, staring into the fire, I know
This is my true nature
My true treasure.

The Transience of Life
The teacher: ‘As you can see all around you, nature is in a phase of dying off and coming to rest. This happens to all living organisms. Every organism passes through a phase of growth and blossoming, after which it dies again and comes to rest.
All this has to do with a development process which aims at gaining experiences, whereby the essence can develop from not conscious to fully conscious, both in the material consciousness and in the essence consciousness.
The gained experiences are not lost, but like a cloak of energy they are taken along to the next existence.
The experiences that you acquire in the course of many lives make it possible for you to explore all aspects of the material world, so you end up having experienced everything and you understand the lessons involved.
Your essence, which is who you really are, will then be fully conscious in the material consciousness.
The essence is not fully conscious as yet. To be fully conscious the essence also needs to know and understand itself, its own content and its place in the World of Wisdom.’
The transience of life
is a certainty in the physical world.
The essence knows no beginning or end,
is just on the way
and receives the physical form
that the experience requires
as part of its training.
The teacher: ‘In the purest sense of the word,
freedom should mean that there are no conditions to be met.’
