The Gift of the Archangels – A Sign of Hope Here and Now
Throughout the world, an event is taking place to counteract the strange and evil forces which currently abound and which are especially amplified during the annual Halloween celebration of 31st October. Under the initiative of our yoga school, this special event takes place every year and it is called Angels’ Week. This event is captivating the hearts and the souls of the increasing number of people who come into contact with its existence and the sublime resonances it brings. In particular, this year we celebrated Archangels’ Week, to invoke and celebrate the reality of the presence of these particular sublime entities in the subtle ambiance of our planet.
While Halloween virtually passed by unnoticed this year, the Archangel Week continued to grow in popularity and strength, and this year we saw it take to the big stage in the form of divinely inspired art. Anima Mundi’s Darul Arhanghelilor – The Gift of the Archangels – premiered on 31st October at Sala Palatului in Bucharest to an audience of thousands. The product of months of rehearsal and carefully honed performances, backed by an immense, magnificent set and extraordinarily beautiful costumes, Darul Arhanghelilor is a testament to true art. In stark contrast to the so-called art of our modern world, it stands out as a beacon of light and divine truth enlightening the lives of all who are open to perceive it.
In promotion of the performance, Darul Arhanghelilor, Anima Mundi did a series of ‘flash mob’ performances in the metro at Piata Unirii. Filling up the platform with their divinely inspired act during peak hour, the angelic hierarchies stopped commuters in their tracks as they pulled out the latest technology from their pockets to capture this captivating moment.
Here is a clip of the ‘flash mob’ performance at Piata Unirii, Bucharest:
In contrast to the common notion of a flash mob which is based more on anarchy than spontaneity, and which reflects the current mediocre and decadent state of art today, Anima Mundi’s ‘flash mob’ performances at the metro were extremely well thought out and planned down to the last detail. Consequently, they gave room for the divine spontaneity to manifest, allowing the hearts of the audience to open up to the sublime resonances which the performers manifested through their beings. In a place which is usually reserved for the fleeting passing of people busy about their daily activities, their minds filled with a myriad of thoughts and ideas as they hurry on to the future, the unusual presence of the archangels and angels momentarily turned the mundane into something profoundly spiritual, transporting those who stopped to watch the marvel unfold into a sacred world where sublime aspirations and divine revelations reign. This is the true purpose of art, which has been slowly but surely removed from the lives of those living in the modern world, to the point that it is now a virtually unknown reality. In its place, the grotesque and the mundane have taken over, spreading their mediocre, perverted message to the world under the guise of so-called ‘art’, which, in reality, is leading to the eroding of values, morals and principles to a dramatic and unprecedented degree.
Archangels’ Week, together with its divinely inspired art such as Darul Arhanghelilor, represents hope for humanity in its time of darkness that is Kali Yuga, the era of spiritual degeneration. In an age where humankind has become as far removed from God as possible, it is little wonder that art has become as far removed from itself as possible. Instead of being a means of expressing the divine in our human life, it has become a means of expressing the human in its lowest forms, exalting that which is debased and debaucherous instead of divine and supreme.
