Episode 52: The World Situation and the Future

In this lecture Ole Therkelsen describes how the atrocities of war and the enormous amount of suffering they cause gradually bring about the evolution of the Earth as a living individual and of the mankind that inhabits it. The Earth and its human beings are sphynx beings with a consciousness that is partly dominated by the killing principle and partly by the desire to love and serve everyone. Eventually the loving aspect will take over completely, leading to the creation of a completely loving, empathic and just world society.

Ole Therkelsen (born in 1948) is a chemical engineer and a biologist with a life-long interest in Martinus Cosmology. He was introduced to Martinus Cosmology by his parents when he was a small boy, and since 1980 he has given about 2000 lectures on Martinus’s world picture in fifteen countries in six different languages. Many of his lectures may be heard on http://www.oletherkelsen.dk and on http://www.youtube.com.

He is the author of Martinus, Darwin and Intelligent Design – A New Theory of Evolution and Martinus and the New World Morality. His books are available from http://amazon.com and http://amazon.co.uk.

Episode 43: How can we see our karma as a friend?

 

Martinus describes karma as the law of cause and effect, as life’s way of helping us to evolve towards becoming truly empathic, loving human beings.

In this episode Mary McGovern interviews the Swedish psychologist, writer and lecturer Sören Grind. They discuss the role of both pleasant and unpleasant karma as a motor driving our evolution and as a mirror showing us how we are capable of behaving towards other people, our own organisms, animals and the planet on which we live. They look at the quality or essence of the energies we send out and how we can use an increasingly intimate relationship to God and knowledge of cosmic laws to support us when the going gets tough and to express gratitude when life is pleasant.

Episode 37: My will and God’s will

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

In “My will and God’s will” Ole Therkelsen poses the question: What or who do you think God is? There are many differing concepts of God. Some believe in the devil as the cause of everything unpleasant and in God as the cause of everything pleasant. Martinus, however, defines God as absolutely everything that exists. He further defines two types of communication with God: the telepathic form that we normally call prayer and the physical form, which is our daily encounter with life in all its aspects. He looks at the idea of free will and the evolution of prayer from the animal’s cry of fear to the highly evolved human being’s well formulated communication.

Ole mentions Martinus’s symbol no. 16 “The Eternal Body” in this lecture. You can see the symbol and read a short explanation on the Martinus Institute’s website.

The symbol is explained in detail in The Eternal World Picture, vol. 1 by Martinus.

Episode 35: Who is it that actually reincarnates?

Episode 35: Who is it that actually reincarnates?

Fotoskuret v/Fotograf Bjelkegaard

“Who is it that actually reincarnates?”, “Why do we reincarnate?” and “How do we reincarnate?” are among the questions taken up in this episode in which Mary McGovern interviews Alex Riel. They discuss characteristics of our consciousness, “talent kernels” in which our abilities are stored, the principle of karma and the transformation of the sexual poles. Many claim that we must be able to change sex from one life to the next. Martinus presents arguments for the opposite, but states that this change occurs in a much greater time perspective – from one cycle of evolution to the next. They investigate the one-life theory and the idea of reincarnation as bases for our philosophy of life.

Alex Riel has a master’s degree in philosophy from the University of Copenhagen, where he also trained to be a psychology teacher. He is also a trained social worker and the author of six books on the philosophy of life. He is a member of the voluntary teaching staff at the Martinus Centre, Klint and the Martinus Institute, Copenhagen.

Episode 24: Cosmological Perspectives on World History

In this episode Mary McGovern interviews Lauge Schøler on how an understanding of Martinus Cosmology can shed light on our understanding of world history and on how it can help us to see everything, including evolution, warfare and karma, in a new perspective.

Lauge was born in Denmark in 1987 and has studied Martinus Cosmology for the last ten years. He is a psychologist, living and working in Copenhagen.

Episode 21: What happens after death?

What happens after death, according to Martinus? What do we experience? Is there a paradise? Why is death such a taboo subject and how can Martinus’ analyses comfort people who are afraid of death? In this episode relaxation therapist, translator and writer Anne Pullar and Pernilla Rosell reflect on death and on Martinus’ description of the different spiritual phases that human beings go through after death before being born again in a new physical body.

Anne and Pernilla also talk about our human experiences of discarnation and incarnation, about being here on Earth for a limited period of time compared to the overall development of the living being and its consciousness during the long process of evolution that Martinus calls the spiral cycle. Finally, they share some personal reflections on death.

Episode 20: Stress from a spiritual perspective

Current rapid processes of change both at the personal level and at a more global, political level cause many people to experience increasing levels of stress and unnatural fatigue.

In this podcast Mary McGovern interviews psychologist and writer Sören Grind. They reflect on how Martinus’ ideas about reincarnation and the evolution of mankind can complement our general understanding of the causes of stress. Why do we see an increase in the number of people who are suffering from stress? Are there spiritual tools that can help us deal with it?

Here you can read Martinus’ article Unnatural Fatigue.

Episode 17: The Ideal Food

Food is an ethical, health and environmental issue that many people today are taking an increasing and urgent interest in. This is almost certainly a reaction to the killing of billions of mammals and fish every year, the widespread illhealth of mankind and the growing worries about the effect of, for example, meat-eating on the sustainability of the Earth.

According to Martinus, human nutrition is evolving in a more humane direction as our consciousness evolves and our conscience grows to encompass other beings than only those of our own species.

In this podcast Pernilla Rosell interviews Mary McGovern about how Martinus, in his book The Ideal Food, analyses the evolution of human nutrition from meat-eating to vegetarianism and veganism. They look at the consequences of the unreliability of our sense of taste and the effect of our nutritional choices on our health and fate.

Episode 8: In Transition

Why do so many marriages end in divorce? Why are so many people lonely and don’t find happiness in a traditional partnership? Why are there different types of sexuality? Why do many parents experience a conflict between wishing to spend time with their children and wishing to devote more time to intellectual and creative work? Are we experiencing a sexual evolution of humanity that is parallel to its intellectual and social development?

In this podcast episode, Mary McGovern from Copenhagen/Scotland and Pernilla Rosell from Stockholm discuss Martinus’s analyses of the pole transformation and the effects of the changing balance of the poles that we can observe in society today.

According to Martinus, all human beings have two sexual poles in their superconsciousness, a masculine pole and a feminine pole. In the animal kingdom, one of these poles is latent, while the other is dominating, thus creating the two sexes that we know as male and female animals. A completely one-poled sexual state is characterised by the instinct for self-preservation and selfishness that we see in instinctual animal behaviour. For humans, the latent pole in both sexes is beginning to develop, which means that men and women are slowly developing into more intellectual, balanced and loving beings. Ultimately, a third sex will emerge, a truly human gender with the highest moral standard of neighbourly love. The sexual pole transformation is the driving force behind all creation.

Mary and Pernilla reflect on how different human beings experience this transitional period today and on how we can find support and a better understanding of human sexual evolution by studying Martinus’s analyses. Pernilla also talks about how she first met Martinus’s analyses through her grandmother and her father, and how she herself found support in Martinus’s analyses of the sexual pole transformation during her own experience of going through a divorce.
