Planting and Growing A Garden of Light

Planting and Growing A Garden of Light

It is the sum total of all of Humanity’s actions and thoughts that brings into being, whatsoever light or darkness there is. Thus the maximum Harmony and Beauty that the Earth Plane receives depends on each one of us. 

We are not expected to individually create the peace on Earth. Rather each of us is continuously asked and offered the possibility of keeping our own garden filled with Harmony, and daily watered with Love and Beauty.

Everyone has a garden under their care and responsibility. Some have large gardens, and others are small. The size of one’s garden represents each one’s capacity and limitations.

Our personal garden consists of  every step that we take, and every thought that we make from the moment we open our eyes until we open them again the next morning.  And, just as we appreciate walking by a beautiful garden, and recognize those that have been left unattended or are filled with weeds and trash,  we mostly fail to notice our responsibility – to fill our ‘garden’ with  light through diligently working to bring Love-Light to each one we meet throughout our days.

If we  find our days filled with darkness and gloom, we can begin each day with a promise to plant seeds of happiness, by offering our smiles, warm words, and acts of caring, to those we find in our garden each day.

If stubborn weeds have grown, prayer and apologies cleanse and refresh the ground of our consciousness — and the hearts of our family and friends. In this way even the most overgrown and neglected gardens become places where children and adults like to visit and take rest, and one by one the world will be graced with beauty.

The Garden of Eden Still Exists

The Garden of Eden Still Exists
Love, the essence of goodness, the primal element of the Most Holy, is indelibly imprinted upon each and every heart.
The Divine Essence of Love exists within all life. Knowledge of this depth and presence of Love is what each prophet and poet is called upon to bring to humanity, and what every Soul hopes to attain. And no matter the path, Beauty is what each Soul knows to be the rock bottom foundation—upon which Love, and all that exists, rests:
 
Our search for the Essence of Love 
might begin one morning
while looking at Reality as a Sacred, 
Holy Mirror,
 
anticipating—that at any moment 
Beauty will appear!
 
Carrying this thought as a seed, 
letting it permeate our core
 
we drink in the glowing sunrise,
while a sweet scent of honeysuckle 
fills the air.
 
Our shining heart-light illuminates
our being,
 
and anything our glowing eyes 
chance to rest upon— 
 
becomes as Beauty-filled as we 
are able to perceive.
 
A sudden spark of Inspiration 
brings us to tears—
 
‘The Garden of Eden still exists 
right here on Earth,
 
whenever we, Her stewards, 
are able to stand as Witness.’

Given to All Paths, All Ways

Given to All Paths All Ways

Throughout all epochs all spheres,
looking with the eyes of now
at the ending of our current era

those who can See and Hear,
and understand,

will not fail to bow down
to the Creator of All

as we peer into the Mirror of the Ages,
and grasp the enormity of the One Divine Message,

that forever has been given to each nation,
throughout all lands and times.

Before advancement of communication
a Message yet arrived, through Messengers
that looked like their people,

in the language of each society,
with images familiar to all.

It is a simple Message, of Love and of Truth
that all were asked to follow—

Love one another.
Do unto others as you would have
Others do unto you.

Do Justice.
Respect and care for the Earth.

And daily give thanks, to the Creator of All.

One Message that echoes in all hearts;
One code of honor, given to all.

May the Divine Message of Love and Harmony
lead our Spirits and hearts to unite in peace.

And may we awaken and follow this Call,
from the Creator of All.

Awakening

Awakening
 
A Prayer
 
Help us and Guide us to undo
the harm we have caused the Earth, and Her Beings,
throughout our thoughtless, careless youth.
 
There is a vast difference in the viewpoint and actions of those who believe that the Most High is Ever Present in their daily lives, and those to whom the Divine remains a distant concept, existing somewhere far beyond this life, if He or She exists at all.
 
The constant realization of the Creator of All as a Living Presence throughout our days, encouraged the ancient peoples to hold in reverence the whole of the Earth, and to carefully examine each word, thought and action.
 
In this Blessing Way of Remembrance, throughout their days and nights, ancient ones consciously experienced in wonderment, the inexpressible beauty, exquisite tenderness, and awesome power of Nature.
 
Comparing this profound level of Being, with that of our modern society, we can easily see the reason behind the thoughtless acts of destruction and harm, so casually inflicted on a daily basis to the Natural World:
 
The vibrations of our ancestors’ Beings moved in peaceful attunement with the world of Nature.
 
Seeking harmony with the Sacred, Hallowed Earth, they consciously breathed the sweetness of rain-freshened air,
and gratefully drank Her living waters, while frequently pausing to pray to live, as a respectful guest.

When Our Large Head Takes A Back Seat

When Our Large Head Takes A Back Seat

When we ‘stand our ground’, we most often do so with our large, intellectual head firmly fixed upon our shoulders.

We have all seen such large heads: Some of them are so grandiose, that they cannot even fit inside a big room! When next you see such a big head, take a look at the rest of the body. You will notice a certain posture that matches the big head. The reason for this posture is – that it takes quite a lot of bravado and energy to support all of the weight at the top! And, even though we may not like to admit it, we can feel–and we have known–moments when our own head is expanding–being fed and grown by the rising heat of our egos–that speaks in a loud and clear voice: “I know I am the best (in this room, place, moment.)”

Yet we all know more tender, Heart-full moments, in which we have surrendered our truth, and have chosen to follow a sweeter thought encouraging us to strive to bring forth harmony with our companions.

This choice to yield does not mean that we are to lose our Ideals, on the contrary, it only means relinquishing the ground that one has been claiming to be—THE ONLY possibility—for any certain moment and time.

And this thought of harmony places our own swelling head in the back seat, while our heart makes the journey—toward the front ground of the other. Looking in this Way, we can easily come to see, that under-standing is a choice—first thought, then willed, and then chosen—each moment—by a listening, Compassionate Heart, dedicated to peace.

Our Trials

Our Trials

The Beloved Warriors of the Most High must become adept swimmers in the whole of the ocean. Their tests are great; their lives and journeys an open book. All wit- ness their purification, and their trials by fire.

We are shown the tremendous difficulties the Masters, Saints and Prophets of each Sacred path have had to endure, as they were becoming great leaders of their people. We are then shown their life purpose, and their experiences with the Most High. Mostly we tend to forget their enormous difficulties and trials, or to minimize them, as we become blinded by their Light. Yet, their rites of passage are not a footnote to their success, but an integral part of what made these Lovers of Truth change from the ordinary people they were, into the Divine Beings they became—

Siddhartha, the Buddha, went into the world
and experienced the suffering of the common people,
as he wandered for a time alone.

Abraham was tried by fire—tested
with the willing sacrifice of his son, Isaac

Sarah, whose name was first Yiscah, Seer, and then Sarai, One
Who Commands, was Priestess to the Goddess,
yet according to her destiny she became a wife to Abraham,
as the world she knew disappeared.

Moses struggled with who and what he was:
leaving his high rank as Pharaoh’s son,
he experienced the lowest place in his world.

Jesus had to sacrifice his own life for his Calling.

The Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Mother Teresa,
and many other Saints and Prophets, 
yielded their place of comfort, 
became stripped to their foundations, 
before attaining their zeniths.

For the darkness exists and the Light exists,
and all must pass through trials of darkness
on their way to the Light.

And though they be great or small, our difficulties
become the foundation upon which all must climb,
in order to attain Union, with the Most Supreme.

The Soul’s Long  Journey Of Desire

The Soul’s Long Journey Of Desire

What is the ending of the Soul’s long Journey of Desire? Holy Communion with The Most High!

Traveling with all concentration and speed, each Soul reaps the rewards and the fruits that await it:

Amidst a kaleidoscope of tastes, colors, and worldly glitter, developing Souls encounter many forms of passionate desires. Some of these lead to experiences of great Beauty, and yet others lead toward disillusionment and evil. At the end of all such ego-filled PathWays, in the midst of a bitter harvest, finally and thoroughly each comes to know—that their choices have led them to a dark end.

Yet, after all Path-Ways

for a Soul’s growth

have been desired, their fruits tasted,

nothing remains except

a deep Inner longing–

To Become—

Only Love.

==============

A Prayer

May all who are hungry find food.

All who are without shelter find shelter  (on all levels)

All who are suffering find Solace  (may someone come to help them)

All who are without Love, Be Loved.

amen and amen

The Grand Mandala Lives

The Grand Mandala Lives

In the Inner-most Sanctum of the Universe, the The Grand Mandala Lives.

It has been said that those who align with their holy path during their lifetime are blessed. Each of these sacred religious and spiritual ways have been likened to one of the many luminous, light-filled rays, that surround and create the Divine Universal Mandala of Holy Light, emanating from the Eternal One.

The energetic rhythms of millions of Souls rejoice as they journey amongst their chosen Ray. And, through their Songs of Life, each Soul carries and maintains a portion of the Wisdom and Truth, that has been Divinely placed, within that particular Holy Stream.

These Divine Rays of Love-Light are established through the Great Work of the Messengers of the Most High. Each of the Messengers, Prophets and Saints, throughout the eras, are sent not only to create, but to maintain these living streams, filling them with the currents of Compassion and Love that will permeate, and weave the seen and unseen Realms, and allow the manifestation all things.

And the Grand and Eternal Wheel of Life, in the center of the Highest Realm, has mysteriously, and All-Ways brought into being — the never beginning, never ending, Glory-Full Reality of the Universe.
