The Golden Thread: A Novel About St. Ignatius Loyola by Louis de WohlAs in his other popular novels, Louis de Wohl, with humility and deep religious conviction, takes us into the mind and heart of a saint, giving at the same time an enthralling picture of the era in which he lived.Here is a skillful weaving of the story of St. Ignatius Loyola’s conversion and pilgrimage with the colorful and dangerous history of Spain and Italy in the early sixteenth century. The life of the very human, very great Basque nobleman who founded the Jesuit Order, makes for one of de Wohl’s finest novels.
Seriously wounded at the siege of Pamplona in 1521, Don Inigo de Loyola learned that to be a Knight of God was an infinitely greater honor (and infinitely more dangerous) than to be a Knight in the forces of the Emperor. Uli von der Flue, humorous, intelligent and courageous Swiss mercenary, was responsible for the canon shot which incapacitated the worldly and ambitious young nobleman, and Uli became deeply involved in Loyola’s life. With Juanita, disguised as the boy Juan, Uli followed Loyola on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land to protect him, but it was the saint who protected Uli and Juan. Through Uli’s eyes we see the surge and violence of the turbulent period in Jerusalem, Spain and Rome.
Louis de Wohl has again created an exciting and spiritually inspiring novel for all readers of historical fiction.
THE GOLDEN THREAD ??
The Golden Thread: Heart of Alchemy
The Golden Thread and the Flow of Consciousness. Each Equilibrium bottle relates either to a Sphere which represents a State of Consciousness in a World spiritual, mental, emotional or energetic or a Path which is the expression of the Movement from one state of consciousness to another in the Tree of Life. This means that when we choose 4 bottles in the Aura-Soma Equilibrium range, we also determine on which aspects of ourselves we are are working on and the key points of the Kabbalah which our soul is dealing with at this point in time. Once we have positioned these bottles on the places of Tree they belong to, they can be connected through a very fine thread, called the Golden Thread, which will offers us a very detailed picture of the trasnsformation of our consciousness through time and space and it will describe how our inner process of consciousness will unfold from one point to the other. Behind each Equilibrium there is a hidden and deeper story which may be revealed and brought to the surface through the combination of the information of the universal language of colour and number, the Tarot and the Tree of Life.

The Golden Thread and the Flow of Consciousness
Voldemort was ready. And then — nothing could have prepared Harry for this — he felt his feet lift from the ground. He and Voldemort were both being raised into the air, their wands still connected by that thread of shimmering golden light. The golden thread connecting Harry and Voldemort splintered: though the wands remained connected, a thousand more offshoots arced high over Harry and Voldemort, criss-crossing all around them, until they were enclosed in a golden, dome-shaped web, a cage of light, beyond which the Death Eaters circled like jackals, their cries strangely muffled now …. And then an unearthly and beautiful sound filled the air … it was coming from every thread of the light-spun web vibrating around Harry and Voldemort. It was a sound Harry recognised, though he had heard it only once before in his life … phoenix song …. It was the sound of hope to Harry … the most beautiful and welcome thing he had ever heard in his life … he felt as though the song was inside him instead of just around him … it was the sound he connected with Dumbledore, and it was almost as though a friend was speaking in his ear ….
