“Talking with Angels is the true story of four young Hungarians in search of inner meaning at a time of outer upheaval, the holocaust. In the darkest hours of World War II, these friends, three of them Jewish, seek orientation and meaning in their shattered lives. During seventeen perilous months, one of them, Hanna Dallos, delivers oral messages which Gitta Mallasz and Lili Strausz record in their notebooks. These teachings end abruptly with the deportation of Hanna and Lili to Ravensbrück in December of 1944. Only Gitta Mallasz survived to bring their story and these remarkable dialogues to the world. She always rejected any notion of authorship for this book, saying, ‘I am merely the scribe of the angels.’”

Between the end of one moment and the beginning of the next, nothing exists, and the truly original comes from nothing.

Dialogue 28 | Friday December 31, 1943

Alpha – Omega … Omega – Alpha.

THE CREATED HUMAN STANDS
BETWEEN BEGINNING AND END.
THE CREATING HUMAN STANDS
BETWEEN END AND BEGINNING.

Between beginning and end is time.
Between end and beginning is timelessness.
The end of the old year is the beginning of the new.
The end of the old world is the beginning of the new.
Humans have always celebrated
what cannot be celebrated.

The gateway to the narrow path is: Omega – Alpha.
The one who passes through it bodily – in time – steps into death.
The one who passes through it spiritually – beyond time – steps into eternity.
Can you measure time between Omega and Alpha?
A fleeting instant ends – a new instant begins.
Between the two, there is no time.
BETWEEN THEM IS ETERNITY.
There is a gateway to eternity:
It opens not at the beginning, but at the end.
The Creator sets in motion
and the new instant is;
the old is no more.

AT THE DEATH OF EACH INSTANT
YOU CAN ENTER INTO ETERNITY,
INTO THE CREATING WORLD.
AND THERE YOU – YOURSELF – SET IN MOTION.

This is visible to all and yet not seen.
The gate is open, but the opening is so narrow
that mortal flesh cannot pass through.
This is the greatest secret:
Every instant – even the instant on the instant –
is an open gate.

THERE IS NO SACRED INSTANT –
FOR EVERY INSTANT IS SACRED.

Thus you live in the eternal and in the temporal.
You are the ball as well as the player.
Do not pay attention to the beginning:
the beginning is already end.
What begins, ends, and cannot be altered;
for force and matter are already in motion.
Take heed:
The origin of everything, the birthplace of motion,
is between beginning and end1.

The created world is a ball.
The Creator plays with it … gives the ball a push,
that it may return in joy.

IN THE CREATOR’S IMAGE:
CELESTIAL BODIES AND ATOMS, ALL.

Learn this:
There is only one certainty, and that is joy.
Everything can be explained: joy has no explanation.
We cannot explain why we are joyful.
Joy is our task.
What you receive is a source of joy for the joyless.”

1 This is almost certainly a typesetting error. in order to be consistent with the earlier passages, it needs to read “between end and beginning”, i.e. between Omega and Alpha. In Dialogue 38, Gitta’s angel says, “The creative act can only spring from the point of eternity.”

Light awareness: the seventh sense

Dialogue 69 | Friday August 18, 1944

May you be filled with LIGHT-AWARENESS!

The five senses are five stages or degrees:
Matter, the touching hand:
water, which dissolves: taste;
air, subtle matter: smell;
still subtler vibration transmitted by the ear: hearing;
through the fifth sense, the eye, light radiates: sight;
the sixth sense is the union of the five;
the seventh is the seed of AWARENESS.

When these seven no longer take, but GIVE,
the instant is creative.
This Act creates above as below,
“Thy will be done” above as below!
Your task links above and below.
Your task is the creative human element:
LIGHT-AWARENESS.

May you be filled with LIGHT-AWARENESS!

Awareness is not knowledge.
Awareness is Light:
acting Light, giving Light.

Your eyes are still blind.
The Light still disturbs you, pains;
it is still cold.
The new light sweeps away every belief.
The one who believes in the Divine is mistaken.

DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE DIVINE!
LIVE THE DIVINE!

May your third eye begin to open!
To become one with the Divine
is still but a possibility.
The vibrations are not yet tuned, united.
Neither you nor the Divine is the cause of this.
The cause is time;
to perceive is time;
To hear is time;
to see is time.

But there is a time beyond time2,
a space beyond space,
where you may act,
where you may unite,
where you may live the Human Essence:
LIGHT-AWARENESS3.
LIGHT-AWARENESS IS, IN TRUTH, LOVE.
Only LOVE acts.

Creative instant, flood of Light,
streaming through the new Eye!

There is no more below, no more above,
there is no more father and no more mother.
Creative instant: GIVING.

The light flows.
Chalice of gold, of translucent gold;
not to be seen,
not to be touched.
Only to be GIVEN.

THE CURSE HAS COME TO AN END4.

3 Gitta Mallasz explains: “Hanna is unable to find an appropriate word for the attraction and union of spirit and matter, for the new unifying element. For lack of anything better, she chooses the Hungarian expression értelem (intelligence, mind, meaning). The angel then goes beyond the one-sidedness of this term in adding: “Light-Awareness is, in truth: Love.” For this English edition, we chose the expression Light-Awareness; the German uses Erkennen, whose original meaning includes uniting as well as becoming conscious. For the French translation, the expression co-naissance was used, and for the Italian and Spanish translations, corresponding neologisms. All of these are unfortunately but approaches to a state of being which we are not able to name.”

4 The curse is humans’ inability to understand the true nature of time — and therefore reality. “It is not your task to master time. Your task is to reach beyond time.” (Talking with Angels, Dialogue 37.)

Must a now-to-new practitioner believe in the existence of angels?

No. Angels do not exist, otherwise there would be tangible evidence of their existence. You can treat angel as a placeholder term, meaning something along the lines of a whisperer of words of wisdom, that cannot speak until invited, and whose origin is unknown and unknowable.
