This pastel drawing is inspired by a geometric
symbol showing the “Highest Self”.
The following text is a summary of a course on
the internet in 2003, by James Twyman, called
“The art of Spiritual Peacemaking”.
The wheel symbol was given in black and
The energy of the pastels comes in on another
level than the text.
The symbol of the Highest Self, or the Soul, is part of the Holy
Geometry which has been known for thousands of years and passed
down from generation to generation by certain ancient communities
and esoteric schools.
In this symbol of the soul, also called Emissary Wheel, there are four
equilateral triangles crossing each other, forming the spokes of a
The wheel of life
Courage (Pos.12) Patience (Pos.4) Wisdom (Pos.8)
Certainty (Pos.1) Compassion (Pos.5) Joy (Pos.9)
Clarity (Pos.2) Understanding (Pos.6) Depth (Pos.10)
(Compare with the clock) Generosity (Pos.3) Abundance (Pos.7) Unconditional Love (Pos.11)
Courage is dynamic and has
confidence at its side. It comes
from the power of our inner
source. It is not to be found
outside as it is more a given
attitude. We all need courage
to act authentically and to be
true to ourselves and others.
We all have basic courage as a
birthright and we are all able to
act from it.
Through courage we find out
who we really are.
Patience is developed from
courage and the knowing who
we are. Patience is soft, can
wait, sees from the heart with
eyes filled with love. Patience
offers a creative flow for
things to happen at the right
time and place.
The reward of patience? - It's
It is - the way it is!
Inner wisdom uncovers the
unheard, the unseen, the
unexperienced. Inner wisdom is
When courage and patience go
hand in hand they lead to
Wisdom wants to be lived and
shared. When inner wisdom,
love and truth walk together,
they give us the power to freely
act in responsibility.
The intuitive heart reaches out
to the doubtful mind. Together
they find the certainty to accept
the transforming power in our
Certainty carries us through
Certainty tells us that we are
loved and that offering love and
receiving love are the same.
The certainty we experience in
being loved and the joy we feel
when offering love leads to
compassion with all there is.
Compassion is the expression of
love for others as part of
Compassion unites us with all
Compassion transforms through
our inner source. Compassion
serves without thinking of a
When inner certainty and
compassion come together
they lead to pure joy.
The joy we mean does not
depend on the movements of
every day life.
Pure joy simply is.
Pure joy is a continuous bliss.
Joy transforms and reconciles
duality and stimulates
We can't understand the
experience of breaking a leg in
theory. The same is true for
everything. We learn through
experience who we are. This
understanding has little to do
with our mind as the mind is too
limited to grasp Life.
Go right to the essence of who
The mind will fail to follow, but
you will feel grace on the way
which offers courage to go
further. Understanding who you
are is a gift that is given and
received at the same moment.
What we are looking for is
depth beyond possible
imagination. Look at the world
around us, look at what is so
called ugly and so called
beautiful. When looking at it,
say with a whisper or aloud:
I AM THAT! Become aware that
you are that feeling, that
person, that condition.
Embrace it all
You are the unique expression
of a unique essence. You are IT.
Embrace all you are.
As we ask for something, we
admit that it is not already ours.
What is needed is an expansion
of what it means to possess.
There is nothing that does not
belong to You. The cup is full, it
Offer IT all to everything!
Stop trying to determine what is
yours and what belongs to
others. There is no other ! As
soon as we accept this, our
heart overflows and the "I" and
"me" awakes from the illusion
We begin to define abundance
in new ways when we don’t
expect the outside world to
reflect our inner reality. There
are those among us, that have
next to nothing by the standards
of the world, and yet they dwell
in abundance. There are those
who have everything and feel
Offer everything to All, and
accept everything from All
We create our own individual
abundance through thoughts
This is a call to live the highest
version of the highest vision we
can imagine. This highest vision
calls for the unconditional love
of our essence.
Unconditional love embraces all
and loves without any reason.
Being in oneness with the all-
embracing unconditional love,
we receive all we ever desired.
The 4 equilateral triangles are forming
together 3 squares with in the center a
triangle in which a circle is found.
Both the triangles and the squares are just
as important. Inside the 3 squares the
energy of the 4 triangles can be found.
The points of the big triangles are showing
the various aspects of the mind. However,
to reach the heart, the mind should be first
clear, and completely illuminated by the
squares. Then only, the heart will be quiet
and able to surrender.
The central triangle, symbol of heart energy, with on the outer points
the force fields of Surrender, Trust and Gratitude, unites the energy
of the 4 triangles and the 3 squares with the all-encompassing
This all-encompassing centre is symbol for the “Highest Self”.

Sai Baba, a world teacher who lives in India, gave humanity 5
values to live by:
Truth, Righteousness, Love, Peace, Non-violence.
The values are meant as oneness in word, thought, feeling and
The values are also meant to make people happy and let them
live in peace together.
For that purpose mutual service and love are necessary.
