The Holy Angels . by C.W. Leadbeater

This quotation is that of C.W. Leadbeater, which he published in 1920. I refer the reader to the quote on 28 September 2021.

Dear Ones,

“There is a great deal of misunderstanding about the holy Angels. The idea of them is so beautiful, so poetical, that people often think of it as if it were only poetry.

“They talk about these great and glorious beings somewhat in the same way as they speak about fairy legends. It is all very beautiful, but not quite real to them.

“Nothing could be further from the truth than any such idea as that. The radiant glory of the holy Angels is far more real, and not less, than the things of this physical plane. I suppose that sounds strange, overstrained, even half-ridiculous; but it is not so at all.

“These things of the physical plane which we touch and feel are real enough to us now, while we live among them; but we have only to raise our consciousness just a little into a higher world, and at once all this gross reality is real no longer, but is airier than the fabric of a dream, and we understand then that the things which are seen here on the physical plane are rightly described as temporal, but the things which are unseen down here are far more nearly eternal.

“Those are the realities, and not these. The spirit is the real thing, not this body. The body is perfectly real while it lasts, but that is only for a few years; the spirit is a divine spark, and lives for ever.

“So the holy Angels are in no way less real than you and I. If we are to institute comparisons between mere vehicles [that is, bodies, whether subtle or physical], theirs are much more real and more lasting than ours.

“Everything which is material had a beginning and will have an end; but that which rises far above the merely physical lasts indefinitely longer, and is infinitely more glorious.

“If we wish to understand these higher things, we must first of all get that idea well into our heads, that the higher we can raise our consciousness the nearer we get to the true reality.

“There is One only who is eternal beyond all eternity, and that is God alone; but these His grander, brighter, nobler creatures are far longer-lived, far more vivid, than the consciousness which we have down here; so we must try to understand something of this great Angel kingdom.”

–from Citation: Chapter XIV, “The Festival of the Angels,” in the book “The Hidden Side of Christian Festivals,” by C.W. Leadbeater, 1920, pp. 252-2533;  digitized by the Internet Archive; no visible notice of copyright [paragraphing mind. -Ed.]
