20 - The Colour Gold
Oh Great Star of Light, Thy
children lift their vision unto the golden radiance, lift up their
thoughts to the Star of Hope which is the symbol of love new-born
and hope newly released in the world and heart of each one. Does
not love re-born contain the spiritual hope and regeneration of all
We lift the
hearts of these here upward into that glory of light, that for a
little while they may be bathed in golden radiance and kissed by
golden joy. In the days still to come may each one go forth to
scatter the gold of hope unto the minds of the beloveds, and bring
joy and love new-born into manifestation in heart and mind and
service in all the days which are to be.
Unto the Great
Golden Star, the symbol of the Christian Festival, we lift the minds
of those who are here and pray that peace and light may be with each
and every one.
May Peace and
Power be here.
My brothers and sisters, I
come to talk with you in this season of glowing light and brilliant
colour which is the sign and symbol on earth of man’s inward
consciousness of the increase of spiritual light and glory as it is
released from the spheres of Light. As you move forward to this
coming Festival (Christmas), it would be good to dwell for a
while in thought on the influence of golden radiance as it is
released from spirit and touches the life and being of every soul
radiance which you call the yellow shades of colour as they are seen
in the places of earth, this has a very definite and important
kinship with the spirit of man. Indeed, gold is the colour of
spirit: in essence it is the shade or colour in which the true
garment of spirit is enfolded ere it comes to use the bodies of
feeling and light. Its golden shade is so delicate and ethereal
that you in the earthly body can scarcely glimpse its beauty, you
may say that it is a shade of primrose so delicate and fine that it
can hardly be perceived by the eye of vision or the mind of
understanding. But woven into the spiritual aura this delicate
shade of gold becomes intensified by the journey through earthly
experiences. As the spirit contacts the harsh and often difficult
conditions which surround the mortal realm, it will find all things
pertaining to itself become intensified and deepened, every shade of
colour becomes more intense. As it comes into manifestation in the
being of man it shows itself as deep shades of golden yellow or pure
shades of golden radiance.
Often, you will
say: “This is the colour of the mind itself, the intellect.” But
we would say, How can there be mind or thought or intellect unless
the spirit is active within its bodies and using them to the
fullness of its intent? The spirit in its pure state is intelligent
as well as loving; in its pure state it creates the intelligence
which shows as golden radiance in the aura of man. If that the
golden colour is lacking in the being of a person, you will say:
“Here is one who has become like an idiot.”
When the spirit
can no longer retain its hold on the body of those who have grown
old in their years of experience, there can only be seen the blue of
feeling of the etheric self and the red of the body which is
energetic and passionate. This one becomes a living carcass because
the gold of the intelligence has vanished or been withdrawn. If man
in his understanding would bathe the heads of these who have become
like imbeciles with the concentrated golden colours of spirit, then
often the faculties of the brain might be re-animated and fresh
intelligence and new thought brought into the being of the one
lacking in intelligence.
This touch of
the gold of spirit is woven into the whole of the world about you
because it is the pure light which is woven through the ethers of
earth by the action of the light of the sun touching of all that
lives to bring forth within them a golden light.
You will say to
me: “This is not so, for the fruit of the grape is purple, and the
apple is red as it hangs upon the tree.” But I would say that when
the golden radiance first touched these things into life, then the
kiss of gold was upon the grape before it came to fruition, and the
kiss of gold is seen on the apple ere it reaches its time of
maturity. As it rises from the ground the grass is kissed with
golden light ere it comes to the fullness of its growth, and the
leaf unfurling on the bough has the kiss of gold somewhere deep in
its unfurling splendour. Truly, the kiss of light brings a golden
beauty, and he who has eyes to see may behold this golden splendour
and understand it for what it is – the kiss of spirit upon the
texture of the things of earth.
As gold is seen
in the living things of nature, all things which are spiritual and
good for the spirit of man have this touch of gold upon them: it is
needed in the being of those who are rising to an understanding of
things of the spirit. The blue is good for it brings calmness and
quietude but without gold to balance it there will be coldness and
maybe depression. Each one seeking knowledge should wear on their
person either some metal which contains the golden radiance or some
garment which will reflect the light in a golden gleam; or meditate
in quietness of thought upon golden manifestations of light for gold
will balance, control, and in many cases transmute the baser
elements which manifest themselves within the being which you call
man – the spirit incarnate within matter.
Is it not true
that the Master Creator has scattered His golden kiss upon the great
world which surrounds you? When the sunlight breaks through the
imprisoned clouds do you not behold gold upon the earth? And is it
not also true that things which do not contain the splendid touch of
gold have no value to the spirit of man? Metals which are heavy and
pertain to the heavy elements of earth do not reflect golden light;
the poisons within plants that do not help man or beast but destroy
and hinder, these too are bereft of golden touch in leaf or berry.
I say to you,
The golden colour and golden light is something to which you should
upraise your thought and your vision from time to time: try to
absorb it in all its splendour of being. Do not regard it as merely
the sun or a crown for kings but as the crown of spiritual life.
When the gold of spirit intellect dawns within the aura of a person,
then we say that they are wearing the crown of spirit, the golden
light of truth.
So with these
thoughts we leave you unto your questioning and studies.
I work to bring colour into people’s houses, you said wearing gold
is helpful so would using gold in rooms be of service?
That is true. A small amount of gold as embellishment or decoration
will have an effect upon the consciousness by stimulating the spirit
mind to a realisation of the things of spirit. This has been
understood by the priests and searchers after wisdom through all the
centuries of man’s growth for many of the ritual vessels of the
priesthoods are made of golden metal; the crowns of kings and
rulers are composed of this same metal in an endeavour to bring them
wisdom. It has also long been the fashion to wear golden ornaments
even among peoples of primitive tribes who have little understanding
of your Christian ideals and yet by the light of the spirit within
them they recognise the important influence of golden light.
Would yellow be almost as effective in that connection?
It is, indeed. Yellow itself is only a degree of gold, but gold
itself is the purer radiance.
Would you agree that yellow is the colour of jealousy?
This thought of yellow being associated with jealousy comes because
of the colour which shows in the spiritual aura when a person allows
jealousy to affect them. But this is not a golden yellow, it is a
dark dirty shade which is slightly tinged with brown. Where this
dark, yellow-brown colour is seen in the aura for any length of
time, it may have a reflection back upon the body, the person may
develop some diseased condition of either spleen or liver, the
fluids of the chemical processes become disorganised and the skin or
eye may take a yellow discolouration. It is often said that
jaundice is caused by jealousy.
What would be the difference in effect between gold and silver if
you concentrate upon them?
Silver is more the pure shade of white which has become expressed in
the form of metal or a colour vibration. It is not of the sun
radiation but more highly governed by the radiance of the moon. If
it is used upon a person in the wearing of silver metal – it would
have a softening effect upon the affections because it is mostly
aligned to the blue radiation.
In upliftment, what would be the difference between starlight as
opposed to the sun?
I think the light of stars is not silver but rather a white
radiance. You cannot say that silver is one of the pure colours of
the Master Creator - it is more a combination of white and blue.
Is it possible to heal by colour if you do not understand the
significance of each individual colour itself?
It is possible; but I do not think it is the colour which conveys
the healing to the person. It is your concentrated thought of
pure colour directed to the person which becomes the channel
through which your own spiritual influence or magnetic force is
transmuted and transmitted to the person who is sick or needy.
To have a
perfect effect upon a person, it must be a true colour and directly
transmitted to them. To endeavour to bathe the person in desired
colours is good because it creates a channel of concentration and
spirit guardians will follow your telepathic thought waves to the
person of whom you are thinking and concentrate the pure colour rays
which are needed for their particular state.
Does one’s own colour alter according to evolution?
Truly, for the shades of the garment of the soul tend to intensify
or alter according to the varying conditions through which the
person passes during the course of even one lifetime. Basically the
garments of the soul which the spirit uses in its endeavour to
incarnate are of red, blue and golden colour and they create many
different shades in their blending. If the endeavour of the life is
towards refinement – spiritualisation – then the colours will become
a dazzling and delicate splendour; but if the earth life is to
develop endurance or strength or perseverance, then the colours tend
to become strong and sometimes rather heavy.
When you spoke of people wearing gold, does that apply to everyone?
It applies unto those who are aspiring towards spiritual development
and an understanding of spiritual matters. There are many taking
the earthly journey who are content merely to satisfy the needs of
the body and feel comfortable within their particular environment,
and the wearing of gold will make but little difference to them.
But those who earnestly desire to meditate in peace and use their
minds to understand the laws by which life is governed by the Great
Master Creator, for these the golden garments would be good indeed.
Also those who
try to express their understanding on rays of inspiration, whether
spoken or in music or art, for them too, the golden light is needed
and will replenish or quicken the faculties of the brain cells when
the brain appears to be tiring under a period of prolonged strain.
