When I was at the Brotherhood center in Quebec last week, where students gather to practice some of the methods of the teaching of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, I heard in one of the video lectures of Master Omraam in which Peter Deunov had said to some of his disciples: “Jesus brought the principles, I bring the methods and Mikhaël will bring the manifestation.”
at does this mean? Let’s begin with the principles that Jesus brought. With his coming came many changes from the current beliefs which were based on the Old Testament: “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” and Jesus recommended turning the other cheek; loving thyself and thy neighbor. He presented God as a Father instead of revengeful Being. So he went above and beyond the teachings of his time. That is why he was rejected by the religious powers and was crucified. Yet, he brought new principles, that of love, compassion, understanding. Moreover, he said “I am the Light” and “He that believes in me, the works that I do, shall he do also and greater works than these shall he do because I go unto my Father.” So he also brought a new wisdom, a new light: the Christ principle. Christ is not a person but a state of consciousness where love and wisdom is the foundation which is available to each one of us to develop, to nurture and to become one with.
As for the methods, Peter Deunov who was raised in an orthodox faith (his father was a priest), pursued his studies in theology in Bulgaria and in Boston where he also studied medicine. Upon his return to Bulgaria he laid the foundation of his teaching by gradually creating forms that corresponded to new ideas: that of respecting nature, being vegetarian, attending sunrise, using music and movement to harmonize body, mind and spirit. Then in 1937, at the eve of WW1, he sent his disciple Mikhaël to France to preserve his teaching and to spread it to the Western world.
Since 1938 the methods have been adapted and expanded to today’s current momentum of life throughout the world where Brotherhood centers have been created for the practice of those methods; where people are part of the world but think differently (no need to live in monasteries or convents to get closer to God); and where brothers and sisters work on their body, mind and spirit while also contributing to the upliftment of all humanity through their harmony and light work. This is my personal understanding of thestatement that Mikhaël will bring the manifestation.
