The Sacred Fire

incense-bowl“The most wondrous fire is the flame of the heart saturated with love for Hierarchy” says the teachings of Agni Yoga. The Fire of Space is creative and transforming. It’s hard to explain what it actually means when we say we have been transformed. What is it that changes us? The answer, of course, is not a simple one. The fiery path of initiation is slightly different for everyone. But it is available to all seekers of the light.

As one enters the path, the individual initiate will face difficulties and confront the age-old questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? As time progresses, the fire of the heart becomes stronger. A tremendous love for every living thing expands. Eventually this love becomes a continuous expression of our essential nature. It is the flame in the heart that connects us with the fiery worlds that stretch all the way to the heart of the universe.

A great transformation of the earth is fast approaching, one that will usher in new concepts and spiritual principles. One in which all humanity will face initiation. This will constitute a “fiery purification,” which will be difficult due to humanity’s resistance against it.

There is a wise Sufi saying that goes like this:

“If you don’t have a temple in your heart, you will never have your heart in a temple.”

The sacred fire, the path of initiation is about having a temple in your heart.
