What do we understand by "conscience"? We have all had experiences of having a guilty conscience and a clear conscience. We see that our conscience is connected to our varying ideas about good and evil, so that an action that would give one person a guilty conscience would not bother another.

Conscience, according to Martinus, is one of the factors that transform animals into truly humane human beings. It evolves from incarnation to incarnation and regulates what we have the heart to do to others. It becomes an "inner voice" that helps us to live up to our changing ideals.

Mary McGovern interviews Karin Jansson on the evolution of our conscience, the difference between "shame", "sin" and a "guilty conscience" and on how our ideals becomes "pillars of light" guiding us towards higher states of consciousness and creativity.

Martinus describes sleep as a window or gateway to another dimension - a spiritual world beyond the physical.

In this episode Mary McGovern interviews psychologist and writer Sören Grind. They take up such questions as: What is sleep? What is its purpose? Where is our consciousness when we are asleep? What are dreams?

They discuss the natural contact between people in the physical world and their deceased friends and family during sleep and also provide some practical and spiritual tips for improving the quality of one's sleep.

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.

Martinus' book "The Road to Paradise", which is quoted in the episode, is available online on the Martinus Institute's website. It can also be bought in paperback in the Martinus Institute's webshop.

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.

In this podcast Mary McGovern and Pernilla Rosell reflect on Martinus' Christmas letters, which he sent out every December from 1933, when the magazine Kosmos began in Danish, until 1980, the Christmas before he left the physical plane. In these letters, he sent his heartfelt thanks to all those who supported his work in various ways. At the same time he provided cosmic analyses of the Christmas mystery and the winter solstice, the latter being a symbol of the culmination of darkness in our minds and hearts and the return of the light in the form of understanding and neighbourly love. 

Martinus very often began on a poetic note as in the following example:

"The time of darkness is upon us. We are passing the solstice and are in the midnight hour of the year's cycle, the domain of coldness and night. The sunlit days, the warmth and life of summer are gone … Just as the Godhead is an eternal light in the darkness, so must every living being come to shine in the night. That is the solution to the mystery of life, that is the beings' awakening from death to life, that is initiation, the great birth, or the beings' experiencing of themselves as being one with the Father, the road, the truth and the life." (Martinus, Christmas letter 1949)

Martinus also wrote many articles about Christmas. In "Light in the Darkness" he writes:

"The joy of Christmas will become joy in living, Christmas presents will become the human being giving himself, that is, his joy in living and his creative ability, for the benefit of the whole, and the peace of Christmas will become peace all the year round, not merely between the different nations but also between the different human being. There will really be 'peace on Earth and goodwill to all men', as is promised in the Christmas gospel." http://www.martinus.dk/en/articles/index.php?mode=1&artikelnr=1477 

And here's a link to another Christmas article, "Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve", written in 1969: http://www.martinus.dk/en/articles/index.php?mode=1&artikelnr=920 

In the beginning of the episode Martinus' Symbol No. 2, "The Principle of World Redemption" is mentioned: http://www.martinus.dk/en/martinus-symbols/overview-of-the-symbols/symbol-2

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.

Many people find it difficult to forgive and see no logical reason for doing so. Mary McGovern interviews Karin Jansson from Sweden after she gave a lecture at the Martinus Centre entitled “Forgiveness as Science and Art”. She describes the process of forgiving with your brain and with your heart, and how it leads to a union with all life. 

The idea of forgiveness is essential to Christianity, but Christ didn’t provide any logical explanation for it. Martinus points to non-forgiveness as a very heavy burden that most of us carry with us, a burden that contributes to illness and depression. His world picture helps us to understand the laws of life and why it pays to forgive.

Martinus describes art as something one produces from one’s heart, not for material gain but out of the sheer joy in being creative and in expressing one’s innermost feelings, thoughts and ideas. Mary McGovern interviews Anne Külper, a Swedish dancer and choreographer with a profound interest in Martinus Cosmology. They discuss how intelligence and feeling are balanced in works of art and in the art of living.

Martinus describes marriage and intimate relationships, and, in fact, all relationships, as grindstones that grind away at the imperfections within us and gradually remove them. All relationships thus contain enormous potential for the growth of wisdom, humaneness and neighbourly love. Loneliness, sexual confusion and the changing roles of men and women are seen to be natural stages on the way to evolving from the male and female sex to the third sex: the human sex.

Mary McGovern interviews Sören Grind, a Swedish psychologist who has taught Martinus Cosmology since 1980. Sören is the author of two books in Swedish – which have been translated into Danish but not English – on what he calls “cosmic psychology”.

Who are we really? What is our innermost, eternal core of being? How does Martinus describe the structure of the living being? In this episode Mary McGovern and Sören Grind talk about Martinus’s analyses of the innermost structure of all living beings, and about how we can understand key concepts such as the I and the superconsciousness. Martinus tells us that all living beings develop talent kernels through various stages, and that those talent kernels are stored as spiritual seeds in the superconsciousness from incarnation to incarnation.

Mary and Sören also reflect on the long journey that all living beings make through eternal spiral cycles, according to Martinus, and how this perspective can give daily life meaning and help us cope with its difficulties.


Mary McGovern and Sören Grind have taught Martinus’s cosmology for many years in Denmark and other countries.

Mary McGovern interviews Else Byskov about her most recent book The Downfall of Marriage - The Great Transformation of Our Sexual & Marital Relations, which deals with Martinus’s analyses of the transformation of the sexual poles and the processes that lie behind the changes in our marital relationships. Why do people today find marriage so challenging? Why is the divorce rate so high? And why do so many people live alone? What kind of transformation is it that we see going on in our society? In her book Else hopes to help readers understand how this transformation influences our daily lives.

Else has written and published six books in English about Martinus Cosmology, including Death is an Illusion and The Art of Attraction. Some of her books are also available in Danish, German and Spanish.  See her website: http://newspiritualscience.com/

In May 2018 Mary McGovern and The Martinus Institute organised the third Translators’ Week at the Martinus Centre, Klint, Denmark. The purpose of the week was to give the institute’s translators, language consultants and proofreaders the opportunity to attend a series of lectures on translating, to develop mutual friendship and cooperation, and to work in the peace and quiet of the centre, away from the many duties of daily life. Twenty-one people, representing 11 languages, the institute’s publishing house and the institute’s international IT service, attended.

In this episode Pernilla Rosell interviews English translator Mary McGovern about the Translators’ Week and her own experience of translating Martinus’s works. Mary provides some insight into the translation process and describes the translation group’s desire to make Martinus’s world picture available in as many languages as possible. They see the translation work as a contribution to understanding ourselves and the world around us.

Health and ill-health in the perspective of spiritual science

Our every thought, feeling and action affects our organs and cells. Our organism is a living universe that is pervaded by our consciousness. The idea of reincarnation sheds new light on questions of heredity, environment, lifestyle and the power of thought. Health and ill-health take us on a journey of research on many levels and, with suffering, our empathy and wisdom grow.

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.

Since the dawn of our reasoning faculties we have tried to understand the universe around us. This enquiry has led to the evolution of science, religion and, more recently, spiritual science. Martinus Cosmology is such a spiritual science. It examines the meaning and purpose behind all physical and mental events in the universe. It looks at the law of cause and effect, the difference between the creator and the created, the law of contrasts and the absolute reality of eternity and infinity. It also shows that prayer has a clear scientific basis, the understanding of which can contribute to one’s understanding of both the pleasant and unpleasant occurrences in one’s life. It looks into life on all levels – the microcosmic, the mesocosmic and the macrocosmic – and can be said to be a theory or science of everything, a science of the consciousness of God.

In the seventh episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern interviews Ole Therkelsen from Copenhagen, Denmark on Martinus Cosmology, God, the universe and science.

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 over 1500 lectures on Martinus’s world picture in fifteen countries in six different languages. Many of his lectures may be heard on www.oletherkelsen.dk and on 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”.

What does it mean to you to have a spiritual experience with signs and colours that you cannot explain? How can we learn more about universal love, intuition, eternity and infinity? In the sixth episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Pernilla Rosell interviews Sarah Ann Kinnear from Pensacola, Florida, about her personal spiritual experiences and her encounter with Martinus’ cosmology, as well as her activities for promoting learning about Martinus’ works in Pensacola.

The Christmas gospel can be understood on two levels: as an account of historic events and as a symbolic description of the fate of mankind. In the fifth episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern interviews Tryggvi Gudmundsson from Iceland about Martinus’s interpretation of the various symbols contained in the Christmas gospel: the evolution of the individual out of the animal kingdom towards cosmic consciousness (the birth of the Christ child within each of us), the principle of giving, the eternal contrasts between light and darkness and the realisation of our longing for a future society in which light and peace dominate on all levels.

Tryggvi Gudmundsson is a life-long student of Martinus Cosmology and has a master's degree in the history of religion from the University of Copenhagen.

In 1882 Nietzsche declared that God was dead, God would remain dead and that we had killed him. Current scientific research, however, seems to support the idea that God is coming back to life, so to speak. In the fourth episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern interviews Jens Christian Hermansen, Ph.D., a sociologist and lecturer at The University of Copenhagen, about Martinus’s concept of God and about how it relates to current research into consciousness.

Martinus writes that God consists of all living beings in the endless universe. God experiences life through these living beings. And the experience of every living being is God’s experience. The living beings are God’s sensory organs through which he creates and experiences. God is not outside his creation but is an integral part of it. Every experience that we have is a direct communication with God, since nothing exists outside God. Through this infinite, eternal universe God experiences himself and unfolds his consciousness, his will, his life and his way of being. This makes every experience of life, whether pleasant or unpleasant, a sacred encounter that offers the potential for the development of an intimate relationship to God and a transformation of daily life.

Today's world may seem to be a difficult place to live in, since many people suffer from wars, terrorism, poverty and starvation. Other people are worried about how to deal with migration and refugees, environmental problems and many other global issues. So how can we understand the world situation today and keep our inner balance? In the third episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern from Scotland and Sören Grind from Sweden talk about the present world situation from the overall, long-term perspective of the Danish writer Martinus’s world picture.

Many people today become involved in international organisations in order to increase global co-operation, thus promoting peace and progress all over the world. At the same time, however, we also see a rise in nationalism and protectionism, and the closing of borders to an increasing number of countries. In this podcast episode, Mary and Sören discuss how we can find an explanation for these diverging tendencies in Martinus's description of the general evolution of mankind from the animal kingdom to the real human kingdom.

In spite of all the difficulties and sufferings that people have to endure at the moment, Martinus' s world picture describes a very optimistic and positive future. According to his analyses, it is necessary for all human beings to go through the present stage of evolution in order to finally grow out of their primitive and egoistic tendencies, and instead develop their humane abilities. The goal of the evolution of mankind is an ultimate kingdom of peace and happiness for all living beings on Earth.

The podcast episode is moderated by Pernilla Rosell (Sweden). It was recorded at the Martinus Centre, Klint in the autumn of 2016.

Who are we? What is our place in existence? Is there life in the universe and in the microcosmos of our bodies? In the second episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern from Scotland and Colleen Turoczy from England talk about central aspects of the Danish writer Martinus' world picture.

They reflect on the questions that they had when they first encountered Martinus' works, and discuss the answers that can be found in Martinus' literature on, among other things, our development towards becoming real human beings, the importance of vegetarian food, the role of Christ and other world redeemers, the world situation today and much more.

The podcast episode is moderated by Pernilla Rosell (Sweden). It was recorded in a summer cottage in the Martinus Centre, Klint, at the end of the summer season, 2016.
