Commentary: It is always good to read about and practice unconditional love while incarnate. Therefore, I am going to share a special holiday tale about the Djinn and what unconditional love can accomplish with just one couple. It is from the book Conversations with a Rose-Croix. It will take 4 or 5 posts, I think. Enjoy.
This Djinn holiday is on the same day as Orthodox Christmas–January 7, 2017
The sun was setting and Alliona whispered in Gabriel’s ear, “Husband, it is time to begin the Resurrection Eve Miracle. Oh darling, such a special and Holy Night it shall be. Thank you for everything. Every time, the Miracle recurs, I feel the love that the young wife must have felt for her husband. I do understand her desire to give to her husband a child.” Alliona took Gabriel’s right hand, bringing it to her lips to kiss. Later, everyone watching agreed that a golden halo of light appeared and shone above her head for several minutes.
Gabriel put his arm around Alliona and announced, “Dearest Friends, our celebration for Resurrection Eve will begin soon. So please stand and bow your heads as we offer a prayer of thankfulness to Our Holy Father and Holy Mother. I will recite one line at a time and then you shall repeat it:
Great Father-Mother, our Fountain,
Who liveth within our hearts eternal,
Sacred is Thy Name,
for in Thy Name all of existence arises and passes,
returning to Thee at the exigent of ends.
Provideth us this day,
both material and supernal.
Forgiveth us our ignorance in action,
our misunderstandings, our aggressive moments,
encouraging us evermore to make peace with our neighbor.
Help us disregard the voice of the Tempter,
not matter how sweet and melodious it sounds,
by reminding us that we are your Children and not His.
For Thy Home is our mansion,
Thy Goodness our goodness,
Thy Knowing our knowing,
Thy Being our being,
Thy Observing our observing,
Thy Intending our intending.
For it shall come to be, someday,
that our Land is as a Heaven,
ruled by Mercy and Justice,
Forever and forever.
As the group recited this wondrous prayer, the stardust upon the Resurrection Tree responded by twinkling most brilliantly.
Gabriel began the story, “Once, a very long time ago, a young couple lived in a village in the dark forests. The man was a doctor and his young wife was a herbalist. They had no children as his wife had broken her pelvis as a young girl and so could not give birth. She walked with a rather bad limp and her husband had to carry her sometimes for she experienced episodes of deep pain.
The man had met her once in a much larger village where she had gone because of her pain. She fell in love as soon as she met him and he did the same. He treated her pain and she was much better and so could be a herbalist for the surrounding villages.
He would travel often to her village to see how she was doing and to suggest certain herbal potions.
One day the doctor asked her to marry him. She told the young doctor, ‘I love you with all of my heart, but I cannot bear children because of my accident. You will be repulsed, when you see my deformed, twisted, bony pelvis. I am so ugly below my waist. I am unable to do hard labor and would not be the wife, a fine man, as you should have.
The doctor said, ‘I will marry you and if you are unable to do something, I will do it for you. I don’t care about your pelvis or your limp, I care about your heart. Anyway, no Djinn lady is as beautiful and as kind as you. Yes, my love, I will marry you.”
And dear Friends, this is exactly what they did and he moved to her village and was the best doctor the village ever had. The old grannies were very sorry for both of them as they had no other family members and would have no children to take care of them when they grew old. But, as grannies are apt to do, they took turns on holidays to bring the couple to their homes. But there is more to come. Now, the miracle will be related.”
A clangor was heard and Gabriel and Alliona went to open the front door to the Inn. But, as they approached the door the clothes they wore changed and they were no longer Gabriel and Alliona, but another couple.
A great blizzard was blowing and everyone felt the cold air entering into the room with the open door Standing in the threshold, bent over and wearing fur hats, fur mittens, fur hats, and fur boots, were two elderly Djinn.
