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.

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.

This lecture was given by Ole Therkelsen at The Martinus Centre, Klint, Denmark on 3rd August 2005.

Music composed and performed by Lars Palerius.

The Swedish pioneer of abstract painting Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) has attracted much attention during the last few years as her works have been exhibited in major galleries around the world. Her paintings can be seen as visual representations of spiritual realities beyond the physical. She was influenced by scientific discoveries of her time, such as radio waves and X-rays, both of which exist but are unseen, and the spiritual teachings of theosophy (Helena Blavatsky) and Rudolf Steiner. A copy of Martinus’s Livets Bog (The Book of Life), vol. 1 was found among her possessions after her death.

The film director Halina Dyrschka guested the Martinus Centre in Klint in July 2020 to give a talk about her film “Beyond the Visible – Hilma af Klint”. In this podcast, Mary McGovern interviews her about Hilma af Klint’s life and work and the striking similarities between some of her paintings and Martinus’s symbols.

Halina Dyrschka studied acting, classical singing and film production before making her debut as a film director. Her film “Beyond the Visible – Hilma af Klint” has won many accolades including being voted one of the best films of 2020 by the New York Times. www.ambrosiafilm.de

You can see Martinus’s 100 symbols here: Many of them are explained in detail in The Eternal World Picture, vols. 1-4.

This podcast was recorded by Mary McGovern at the Martinus Centre, Klint, Denmark on 24th July 2020.

Episode 35: Who is it that actually reincarnates?

“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.

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

In “Journey into the Microcosmos”, Ole Therkelsen describes how our behaviour affects the entire universe of microlife that inhabits our bodies. The Old Testament and the New Testament encourage the development of neighbourly love in the form of love for other human beings. One of the major tasks of The Third Testament is to expand this idea of neighbourly love to include the microbeings within us, whose life and well-being are dependent on what we eat and drink, what we think and feel, how well we sleep and how we treat our corpses after death. He talks about the law of karma and the law of attraction and repulsion and their connection to genes, chromosomes and congenital disorders. Gratitude for one’s fate – however pleasant or unpleasant – is shown to be a natural consequence of initiation into the macrocosmos, mesocosmos and microcosmos and an important factor on our journey towards gaining cosmic consciousness.

Ole explains Martinus’s symbol no. 7 “The Principle of Life Units” in this lecture. You can see the symbol and read a short explanation here: https://www.martinus.dk/en/martinus-symbols/overview-of-the-symbols/symbol-7

The symbol is explained in detail in The Eternal World Picture, vol. 1 (https://www.martinus.dk/en/ttt/index.php?bog=61&stk=7) and in The Ideal Food (https://www.martinus.dk/en/ttt/index.php?bog=5) by Martinus.

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.

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.

Ole explains Martinus’s symbol no. 4 “The Road towards Light” in this lecture. You can see the symbol and read a short explanation here: https://www.martinus.dk/en/martinus-symbols/overview-of-the-symbols/symbol-4

The symbol is explained in detail in The Eternal World Picture, vol. 1 (https://shop.martinus.dk/en/english-books-10/major-books-38/the-eternal-world-picture-vol-1-188.html) and Livets Bog (The Book of Life), vol. 1 (https://shop.martinus.dk/en/english-books-10/major-books-38/livets-bog-the-book-of-life-vol-1-186.html), both by Martinus.
