Explanation of the exercises
Those exercises will help to strengthen your will so that eventually, thanks to your strength of will, nothing will be able to stand up against you; you will triumph over all your difficulties. If you do no exercises you will never have a strong will. Other people can give you knowledge or wealth; others can spark emotions in you; but nobody can give you will-power. You have to develop that for yourself. This is why the very first thing that initiation requires of disciples is that they should develop and reinforce their will through exercises and discipline. This is difficult, of course, but it is the most effective way, because if your will is strong, you can work and persevere, and in the end you will get everything you want: intelligence, beauty, health, power. Whereas, if you are weak-willed, you will get nothing more than you already have; in fact, you are liable to lose what you already have.
Note by Stichting Trinity: In those exercises all of the initiation- symbolism lies hidden, even the as far as the symbolic formation the symbol of the Microkosm within the Macrokosm: the small 5-pointed star within the larger 5-pointed star, which is the emblem of the Universal White Brotherhood. Even a parallel with the Sefiroth of the Kabbalah is possible.
For this, exercise 6a can be seen in the light of the 6th sefiroth, 6b in the light of the 7th , 6c of the 8th , 7 in het light of the 9th. sefiroth and 8 of the 10th! More about this can be found on the Trinity study-CD Rom. Also, it is highly recommended for a better insight, to study the comlpete book: "The New Earth" and any other litterature by Omraam MikhaŰl A´vanhov, available from Prosveta Nederland in Dutch, and in other languages from the other national branches that can be traced via their site. Also very important for those exercises again, is the admonishment by Omraam!
N.B.: The description of exercise Nr.6 op p.226/227 of the New Earth is less complete than the one in the back of the same book (with pictures): it actually comprises three different acts. Exercise numner 7 too contains two different acts, that still belong togeether. For this reason those exercises will be given here in some greater detail than on p. 226/227 of the New Earth, to prevent any misunderstandings arising. N.B.: The Notes added by Trinity have been rendered in Dark- or light green for clear distinction from the original text. Also, with the exercises optional colour-meditations have been provided, that can be added. It might be better to first master the movements as such, before adding them. Trying to learn it all at the same time might be a bit too much, all at once. Also, work step by step: when the first exercise works, and means something to you, go on to the next one, and so on.
