What is Purity?

Today, will be somewhat different. In the early 1980's I wrote my first book called Circle of Light. A stranger who lived in Rochester, NY, was a student of a master teacher named Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov. Omraam's Initatic Science School was and is located in southern France. This stranger had read my book and insisted that a copy be sent to his international teacher, which he did send as a gift. Soon afterwards, I received a handwritten letter on the finest paper. Omraam praised my intent and particularly appreciated one of the poems that I had written that was included in the book. Omraam encouraged me to allow my consciousness to lead and to live with courage and fulfill what I came here to do. A very warm and touching letter from a brilliant light who I had not met except in visions of light. Omraam and I have a strong history of similarities but then, this frequently happens to souls with pure intent who have chosen to serve. Although he deliberately vacated his body shortly after he wrote me the encouraging letter, I have felt his presence occasionally particularly during times of great movement in my life. The following is the poem that he admired:


PURITY is a state of being; it takes eons of time to awaken within the conscious mind. It is the key to eventual freedom and Oneness.
PURITY is understanding and keeps forever in its consciousness the truth that each is struggling in his or her own way for conscious perfection.
PURITY is a cleanliness of mind. It does not soil itself with negative thoughts that separate; these outpourings only dissipate and discolor the energy of the soul.
PURITY is kindness and selflessness towards others; the desire to give, lovingly, each in his or her own way.
PURITY is patience in life, the battleground, the school for souls. All worthwhile desires take time to materialize.
PURITY is resting in that which is Unseen, that which we cannot always grasp or comprehend; to put our trust in God knowing that we are loved and all will be as it should.
PURITY is a result of long preparation and paving of the Way. The human prepares his or her body and conscious mind for purity, the honored guest.
PURITY is a joy in the comfort of understanding and thankfulness. It is a happiness that only those who are touched by the grace of SPIRIT comprehend.
PURITY is life, the true life, for it has purpose, dedication and realization. It has a freedom that flows out of unity and harmony.
PURITY is humility before holiness. Human hood cannot comprehend the Supreme Spirit intellectually. Its love, power and wisdom is only known through the awakened heart, the intuitive experience.
PURITY is a final realization that we are purity Itself, never separated; the one Life, the one Heart, the one Mind pulsating throughout the Universe.

Dearest, I did not realize that you had had a letter from Omraam--how wonderful! I start my day with Omraam in my e mail every day, thanks to you.~~I well remember "Purity". I still have the original copy you gave me--I have copied it many times over the years to share with others. Thank you, thank you, thank you! It has been an inspiration to me for many years. I even have a silver ring that says "Purity" on it. Much Love, Kristin
