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 Only Source

THE ONLY SOURCE
Human Beings live and move and breathe with-in the Ever-Present.
 
There is no way that anyone can be separated from the One Source of Life —
 
Through our eyes,
our noses and mouths,
 
through our ears—
and the pores of our skin,
 
all that enters ‘us’ emerges again—
returns to the One Life— the All-in-All:
 
The plants, the animals, our friends and our food,
the sunlight and the air,
have the same Life-Essence flowing through them
as flows through our own being.
 
For we are all a part of one Living-Breathing heritage—
Birthed and nourished, growing and aging,
 
and then returning to the Earth, and the Ethers:
Physical to physical; Spirit to Spirit.
 
And all of these states exist simultaneously, with-in
the One-Love-Light-One-Life-Source, of the Universe.

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.

The Hunger That Cannot Be Pushed Aside

The Hunger That Cannot Be Pushed Aside
 
There is a deep, Inner longing constantly dancing with-in each Soul. This longing urges each one to rise, ever upwards, beyond their current abilities. It exists as an under-current, operating ceaselessly in all that we do. This longing has been called, “the hunger that cannot be pushed aside, the thirst which cannot be quenched.” 
 
It is this longing which causes each one to stretch to attain their utmost possibilities, glimmering and shimmering in the mists, upon the horizon of one’s life. It causes one to seek to become the greatest of musicians, and another to seek to become the best farmer, or the best parent they can be. Yet where do these longings come from? 
 
The desire for each one to reach their zenith comes directly from the Inner One, the All-in-All, the Loving One. This is the Voice of the All Knowing, who Guides all Souls to create the dance of their life time—with-in Beauty and Love. This Inner Essence of Life is identical to the Desire residing with-in each seed: Planted deeply in the ground, the Spark of Life awakens and leads each seed to cast off it’s shell—and struggle ever upward, around or through all obstacles it encounters. And, though it has never seen the Light, yet each seed is drawn ever upwards, for no other purpose than it may one day emerge from darkness—and become its absolute, Beauty-filled fullness.

Seen underneath this Wisdom-Light, one may understand, that the whole of humanity, and the whole of the universe, is moving and breathing together, upon the Great Ocean of Life—rising and falling with-in the unseen currents; Ever striving to satisfy, and to bring to life, the highest desires of the Eternal One.
