Take what you can use and leave the rest. (Martinus)
Would you like to know more about Martinus Cosmology?
If so, you have something to look forward to because Martinus Cosmology can develop into a stimulating life-long interest that challenges one’s understanding of existence and the world around us. At the same time the meeting with Martinus’ analyses forms the basis for an optimistic view of life and can inspire one to develop one’s individual morality and behaviour.
It is important to note that Martinus’ works are openly available to all those who are interested in them; there is no organisation that one can become a member of. Martinus often said, “Take what you can use and leave the rest.”
In Scandinavia there is a wealth of opportunites to attend lectures and study groups. If you would like advice on arranging lectures or study groups in your country or area, please contact the Martinus Institute at email@example.com.
Private study of Martinus' works
You can start by taking a closer look at the current list of Martinus’ writings.
… the complete understanding of the highest analyses of life and thereby the experience of the highest truth cannot possibly be acquired merely by reading the analyses. It comes only from living them.
(Livets Bog, vol. 4, sect. 1062)
If you would like to begin with a relatively easily accessible introduction, the following shorter works can be recommended - depending on what topics you are interested in. Under “Martinus’ writings” in the menu you can read a little about the various books.
Many, however, chose to begin with Livets Bog (The Book of Life) 1, which in itself is an introduction to Martinus’ main work. In the first section of the book, entitled “The Preface”, Martinus provides a brief description of the purpose and nature of his work and his mission.
If you are more visually orientated, you may prefer to begin by studying Martinus’ symbols, which provide an overview of his world picture. The symbols are published in The Eternal World Picture 1-5, which contain 77 symbols and their explanations. See The Symbols.
The study of Martinus’ works is a very comprehensive one. He himself said that his analyses were not easily accessible evening entertainment, but a “work field or training field”, where one has to use one’s faculty for concentration, one’s ability to think and one’s openness. Many have acquired extensive knowledge of Martinus’ world picture through studying it on their own.
You can read an article by Martinus here, and you can read some of Martinus’ works on-line by choosing “Read Martinus’ Works” in the menu on the left.
