on the Temple of the Heart

Concerto No. 1 in E Minor, Op. 11
for Piano and Orchestra
by Fryderyk Chopin

1. Allegro Maestoso 2. Romance: Larghetto 3. Rondo:Vivace



"When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child;
but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see
in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then
I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love,
these three; but the greatest of these is love."—1 Corinthians 13:11-13

40. "All actions can be divided into the heartfelt and the heartless.
Humanity should remember this distinction, especially now.
Heartfelt perceptions, even with many differences, can be united,
but heartlessness is the unity of the dark forces,
and among them you will not find co-workers of the Brotherhood."
—El Morya, Supermundane 1, 1938

9. "Happy is the one who can understand the command of the heart."
—El Morya, Supermundane 1, 1938

" . . . I may not open the screen and show you a future—a future without your commitment
and conversion to Love. Therefore I say: guard the heart and guard the spoken Word."
—Rose of Light, June 29, 1980

" . . . there must needs be a pressure of the burning in the fire of the heart
until suddenly there is a snap and one of these iron bands is broken
and you can nevermore return to that lesser state of density
or stubbornness or pride of self-centeredness, et cetera;
you have now passed that barrier and the flame
(of Life, especially at the heart chakra) can expand."—Lanello, March 3,1991

"The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of."—Blaise Pascal

"Faith is always at a disadvantage; it is a perpetually defeated thing
which survives all conquerors."—G.K. Chesterton

"Love is not automatic. It takes conscious practice and awareness,
just like playing the piano or golf. However, you have ample opportunities to practice.
Everyone you meet can be your practice session."
—Doc Childre and Sara Paddison, HeartMath Discovery Program

In her 1999 BBC interview Martha Argerich, world-famous Argentinian concert pianist, said:

"Chopin was a genius . . . what can I say! He's a pianist . . . a musician . . . whom I would have loved the most to be able to hear playing. I'm so curious about his playing, much more than anybody else, much more than Liszt . . .

"I'm so curious, I would love to have seen how he played, really, because of his compositions, the way he writes for the piano which is totally different from anybody else, you know, and the way he makes the piano sound and the way he writes for the piano . . .

"The virtuosity, which is not so obvious because the musical quality is extraordinary in Chopin —so, the virtuosity which is tremendous because it's terribly difficult . . . it's there but it has to be . . . like an understatement. And it has to show, I mean, it's not a show-off thing, you know. It's called Concerto Brilliante, yes, brilliant . . .

"To talk about music is very difficult, what music does to one . . .

"The first movement of this concerto, for me, is extremely passionate and it's extremely . . . proud and it's . . . it has something . . . I'd say, tender, I mean, it has the whole Chopin there, for me.

"The second movement of this concerto—I find it a little bit more restrained, singing, bel canto really, but not so . . .

Threefold Flame in the Heart Chakra

"Know this, beloved; there must needs be a pressure of the burning
in the fire of the heart until suddenly there is a snap and one of these iron bands
is broken and you can nevermore return to that lesser state of density
or stubbornness or pride of self-centeredness, et cetera; you have now passed that barrier
and the flame (of Life, especially at the heart chakra) can expand."—Lanello, March 3, 1991

"Men have been taught that the highest virtue is not to achieve, but to give.
Yet one cannot give that which has not been created.
Creation comes before distribution—or there will be nothing to distribute.
The need of the creator comes before the need of any possible beneficiary.
Yet we are taught to admire the second-hander who dispenses gifts he has not produced
above the man who made the gifts possible.
We praise an act of charity. We shrug at an act of achievement."
—novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

557. Since each man has an open wound, he also has a ruby in his heart called the Holy of Holies.
Such a magnet must be guarded. It has been called a precious stone.
Long ago the precious stone was spoken of, but then some began
to understand this as an abstraction.—El Morya, Aum 1936

"I love the Coda, though . . . Well, but this movement is terribly difficult. It's a dance . . . But, well, it's extremely difficult, pianistically, you are never sure about it. It's just brilliant, of course . . . but I'd say it's also rewarding.

"You know, very often, I thought that I liked to hear this Chopin's concerto performed by young pianists. Yah, I think he was 20 when he wrote this one. Before, I used to think like that. Now
I'm not sure . . . "

(Amazing performance follows.)

"Be prepared to illumine a world, not by technology but by your heart flame. And even in the darkest night of a darkened world, that Light raised up will draw all similar Lightbearers unto you.

" . . . you must have a powerful sun center, individual by individual, to draw to this place those who can be God­taught, who are teachable, who are humble enough and without fear to receive the chastening rod of Love's wisdom."

"Some have neat petals in a spiral unfolding about the heart.

" . . . Love will overturn all tyrants and fallen angels. Love will seal you from all going astray and all temptation. Perfect Love will cast out all unlike itself. Love is still the key, beloved. Therefore when the tensions mount and disagreements come and there be strife inserted among the brethren, let Love be the recourse. Let Love be at the moment all of thy desiring as you drop your defenses, drop your weapons, drop all desire for vindication, for any satisfaction whatsoever in the redeeming of the human ego. Let it all be dropped as you would indeed drop it to see the Presence of your Lord Jesus Christ standing before you, standing before you in holiest Love, and Magda attending with arms of flowers and joy. Behold the Lamb's wife!

" . . . for indeed our Father-Mother God is The Rose of Light and I am the servant of The Rose of Light. Therefore, beloved, please sing with me now the song of The Rose of Light:

From thy fragrant center light
Through thy petals blazing
Comes God's love intensely pure
Rose of Light, love will endure

Rose of Light, thy power flows,
Fiery, silent, majestic rose!
Through my being enfolded here
All of life I now revere

Expand thy flame's suffusing glow
Through my substance here below
My heart cries out for freedom's bloom
O God expand my narrow room!

The love of God enfolds a rose
Touches lightly a heart that glows
Like unto Aurora's bloom
Thy Rose Light chases all man's gloom

Rose of Light, expand through me
Caress my being, make it free
To grow and glow upon the loom
I now command my soul, attune!

Rose of Light, o come today
In God's name I truly pray:
From fear and darkness and all hate
Set my mind in radiance straight

Rose of Light, I AM all thine
By God's love my life refine
Through us all let love appear
In God's image ever dear!

"The initation upon this Community in this hour is one-purposed and one-pointed.

" . . . May you hear this voice [of the Lords of Karma] and know that this is the truth and know that this argumentation and strife and rivalry, et cetera, this deception one toward the other—in all manner of human consciousness that was a part of the children of Israel whereby they spent forty years in the wilderness—may not be allowed to manifest again merely because your ancient karma is upon you! You are greater than that karma!

"And I AM Rose of Light. And you shall know through me the fierceness of Kali this night as you understand the reprimand of the Divine Mother and her cosmic spanking. Wake up! I tell you! And let your hearts give room to the Prince of Peace who is the Christ of Love.

"All missions shall fail unless you bring Love to its glory and to its height in this hour. Even the mission of the Lord Jesus Christ shall not have that ultimate resolution and resurrection in this age wherein his true teachings cover the Earth unless you assimilate that teaching, endow it with Love and let that Love cover the Earth.

" . . . I call to the mandala of lightbearers to be magnetized by the magnet of Love that is now placed by Heros and Amora in this Community as a forcefield of divine Love. This magnet of Love is so great, beloved, that those who allow themselves to become out of alignment with it will not long remain here, for they will not be able to bear to be in the presence of that magnet while they entertain the perversions of the ruby cross in their beings. This then shall be the key to the salvation of Community as well as the dividing of the way twixt the human and the divine.

" . . . I AM the servant of the rose of Light to be externalized in your hearts."

Rose of Light

" . . . For, beloved, out of the heart are the issues of life.

"Consider, then, the twelve petals of the heart chakra as representing twelve hierarchies of the sun. Just as [it is] in your astrology and in your karma, so it is repeated in this heart that petal by petal there is the vibration of that remaining karma under each of those hierarchies and the remaining initiations which must be taken by your soul. Thus, you see, the heart's expression can be no greater than the full expression of the soul in the present state of development.

"Now, it is the threefold flame of your Holy Christ Self in balance and expanded that does give you the true and accurate heart reading that you ought to follow. Thus, beloved ones, take care when making decisions to give the necessary ritual of invocations and prayers and decrees, writing your letters to the Karmic Board, who do afford you so very much support.

"It is necessary to enter in, then, to the heart meditation whereby the human heart, with [its] human potential and level of evolution, is set aside and you do enter the heart of your Holy Christ Self. Then the question becomes, beloved, whether in your heart and soul and being, whether in your will you can decide to make a decision to live your life according to the standard and the wisdom of the Holy Christ Self, your True Self, or [whether] you will say, 'It is too hard for me. I cannot adapt to this solution. After all, I am only human. Therefore I will live after my human planning while I think about this [for] a while or while I evolve.'

"Understand, beloved, that you will spend many rounds going round and round the petals of the heart chakra [but you will] not experience self-transcendence if you always choose the low road of present capacity rather than make your decisions based on the high road of anticipated and vowed attainment."

"The matrix (for expanding the auric energies of the heart into the divine aura) is the six-pointed star centered over the threefold flame superimposed with the name of God, I AM THAT I AM."

Djwal Kul: Human Aura, II 1982, chapter 3: The Interlaced Triangles, p. 97

" . . . [When you] get inside of the heart and inside of the heart of the Mother everything that you do, even that which seems mundane, in actuality is the rest in motion of the cosmic shakti and the Word. View life from another angle and see how the prisonhouse of desire is really not something that is a part of you or of anything that you would desire to have endure.

"Realize that the ascended master consciousness and our presence in your midst may be only degrees apart from some aspects of your life. It is our attitude toward life, our bountiful attitude, our attitude of Be-ness--that Be-attitude that has resulted in our state of perpetual bliss in the Mighty I AM Presence.

"Do not think of the ascended state as so far removed or of the ascension process [as] something far down the road. Dwelling in the bliss of the Presence ought to be a daily affair of the heart, the heart pulsating, expanding whitefire Mother-flame and the peace of the Buddha.

" . . . The Word that flows forth from your mouth is Mother.

" . . . The supreme opportunity of the devotees of Mother and Maitreya must be made plain: it is to take this entire path, this ancient teaching, and to see Spirit rather displace matter than swallow it up. Though in a sense all of earth must rise we would prefer that you would regard it as all of heaven descending, that you come to understand the experiencing of the heaven-world in this octave, and that dissolution occur by the descent of light rather than by the abandonment of these worlds.

"This forward movement into the new world and the new age can be heard in the silent footstep of the Mother and Maitreya.

"We assemble for a vibration—a cosmic vibration and your attunement therewith. The dynamic decrees have the effect of the stilling of the senses in this octave, or their snuffing out as it has been taught. The dynamic decrees create a void suspended in time and space but yet not [of] time and space. An interval of infinity comes down as a descending lotus flower and within is the hearing of the Word.

"You have heard this reading in the aura of Sanat Kumara and my own, in the aura of Gautama, Maitreya and the Mother. And all of the Christed ones worlds without end have lent their auras to your own that you might understand the meaning of identification with the one who has moved from the point of disciple to master, the one who has overcome the steps and stages described, verily the one who has become the path.

"By the teaching of the Great White Brotherhood and the great heart of Saint Germain you have a foretaste of that consciousness even while you are in the process of learning how to overcome the unwanted habits of inordinate desire or simply misplaced attention that has not arrived at that point of dharana perpetual—perpetual seeing, hearing, tasting and affirmation of the Mighty I AM Presence.

"This may not be as hard as it seems, beloved ones, or as far removed or even as undesirable as you may think. Meditation on the I AM Presence can clearly be a daily experience in the fullness of joy. You know then that your attention is removed from that Presence when you do not experience the fullness of joy. Joy is another name for God. Joy is the fulfilling of light. Joy is the victory of the arcing of worlds!"

"Understanding is the reward of faith. Therefore seek not to understand that you may believe, but believe that you may understand."—Augustine of Hippo
"Faith declares what the senses do not see, but not the contrary of what they see. It is above them, not contrary to them."—Blaise Pascal
"The virtue of men are of more consequence to society than their abilities; and for this reason, the heart should be cultivated with more assiduity than the head."—Noah Webster
