Episode 31: The Road towards the Light

The Martinus Cosmology Podcast presents the first in a series of lectures given in English by Ole Therkelsen.

In “The Road towards the Light” Ole Therkelsen describes some of the core principles and laws of life that are central to Martinus’s world picture. This world picture is eternal, even though we experience our daily lives from a temporal perspective. Life can be viewed in two perspectives: the eternal perspective and the temporal perspective. Confusion can arise when we fail to acknowledge both perspectives. War, illness and all forms of suffering are of course very unpleasant, but from an eternal perspective these things, like everything else, are “very good”. “Behold, everything is very good”, the Bible states. This is not a cynical view, but an explanation of the role of darkness. All darkness forms the contrast that is essential to our ability to experience light at all. The principle of contrast is an eternal principle, as is the principle of cycles and the principle of hunger and satiation, which drives us away from what we are tired of and towards what we are longing for. This lecture can support us in our attempts to understand the “direct speech of life” and to regain our long-lost consciousness of eternity.
