A beautiful old sailing ship, rigged with all sorts of sails, is sailing in quite a swell. It looks like a Spanish galleon.

The ship itself is dark green, but the flags are of no particular colour. It is as if a number of colours are woven into the fabric and the play of the wind gives them a certain colouring.

The ship emanates distinction and stateliness.

You may know that when we speak of a ship, you can compare yourself with such a ship. We haven’t shown the Spanish galleon for nothing. You know that the Spaniards used to be explorers, and we would like you to start exploring yourself again.

We see you as a very stately ship, a distinguished ship, as a ship that commands respect, and the colourings of the sails tell something about your own colourings that you show in the course of time.

The wind has free play here and you can see the wind as the unrest that you experience in possibly stressful situations.

Every human will react in his own way, from his own colouring, character, genetic material and old experiences.

Every human has his particularities that cannot be compared to any other ship. In this you are unique, clearly present and recognizable.

We have a good understanding of this. We know the power in each of you, what possibilities each of you has and we like you to start using them.

Our way of speaking finds response in your colourings, your experiences, the possibilities you have as a human being. As we said: ‘This ship commands respect, it is stately, it is distinguished, it has a real presence.’

We hope that every one of you will get benefit from this possibility to create another self-image, as we very often see that your self-image never fits who you really are, and this is, of course, different for each of you.


The self-image is quite often the echo of your upbringing, how people treated you when you were a child, how your environment reacted when you were cross-grained or wanted something different.

If the child got its knuckles rapped, it would quickly see: this is not tolerated in me, so I have to keep quiet and try to do what is expected of me.

Little by little this individuality got snowed under and hardly ever came to the surface again. In puberty the human tried to recover his individuality now and then, but this was pretty soon suppressed and gave the same image: I really want to be who I actually am, and you started to lay into everything and everybody, but at the same time you tried to manifest yourself as part of the group and you don’t want to be the odd one out of your peer group, so here too, you adapted your behaviour and possibilities.

This shows that not one human has a self-image that actually matches his real personality. How we regret this! A human thinks, I am nothing and I will hold my tongue, or I am stupid, or people are ashamed of me, or I cannot express myself so well, or I have not been to university etcetera.

Everyone has reasons to manifest himself in a certain way.

If he thinks it important, he will emanate it, so that the other thinks, Well, I don’t know about him, he shows so very little of himself, I don't feel that I need to give him more attention.


The human who thinks of himself in a certain way, emanates that in the colouring of his aura, in the power or rather in the negation of himself. The human who hopes to be seen, will not meet anybody who really sees who he is.

Just presume that each human is his own ship with his own colours; that means that not one human can look at the power of another from his own power. Everyone’s power is veiled, has already been through a recolouring, and one looks from this colouring to the colouring of the other.

The human in his own power just shows who he is, whatever the others think of that, and his own colourfulness will easily shine from his aura.

Each of you knows the powers, notices that all powers are present in yourself but you make choices here: this power may surface and that one I keep for myself, nobody is to see that one.

Nobody needs to see that I am angry, or that I can be cross-grained, that I can be friendly, so everyone plays a game, plays a certain role in this life, and shows a distorted image of himself to the outside world. Yet the human says about himself: ‘Gosh, I am much more than what others see in me and I would really like this to show, it may show.’

From someone who is a grownup and thinks, I am an adult, I know who I am, one would expect that he can now show himself and make a choice, whatever way the others look at him. I stick to who I am, in my own power, in my own colourfulness.

But although we see humans in the matter, we don’t see this in the expression and you are still a child that has acquired many impressions while growing up, through upbringing, school, religions or whatever.

So what you show at an adult age is already so distorted, so instable, that not one human can say: ‘I am a grownup!’ Your essence knows your power, your essence knows your possibilities and when you listen to the impulses from inside and start to follow these, you cannot but be in your power. Your essence is the source of power of the material consciousness and also the intermediary between the World of Wisdom and the material world.

The human who makes the choice of not following the one he really is, of no longer looking how the other goes. He knows every human has his own power, every human has his own possibilities. I can only make use of my possibilities, I can only be totally present in this life and I make everything in me known to the outside world. There is room for that!

You don’t have to adapt, no, there is room to be yourself, if you only allow yourself. You can no longer blame your parents or the church.

Everyone who used to put a word in: ‘That’s good’ or ‘That isn’t good’, has no longer the right to speak and you are the only one who says: ‘I can no longer manifest myself like that, I will keep quiet, I will stay in myself.’

At the same time we see that every human wants to be seen by his fellowman. But as long as he doesn’t see himself, his fellowman won’t see him either.

This is a pattern that we cannot change, only you can change it by saying: ‘I show myself, so other people see me too.’

The moment you notice that the other doesn’t see you, you may count on it that it is not that the other is unwilling. Ask yourself how it is that the other doesn’t see you. What are you hiding?

If you are honest to yourself, you will find that there is still a great lot in you that cannot be seen, because everybody has something like a ten commandment notebook in his thinking hat: this is good and that isn’t!
