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.

Rising Up-On Our Highest Ideals

Rising Up-On Our Highest Ideals
How and why do we fall down? We fall down when we fall beneath our Ideals. 

Life is about being the best we can be. Each person has their own Ideals, and knowingly or not they try to achieve them each moment of each day of their lives.  
Whenever we fall beneath these Ideals, we suffer. Sometimes our fall is very little, and we hardly take notice. Yet at other times the pain we experience can be so very great, we wonder if we are ever going to rise again—if we will find the Inner strength to attempt a new mount. 

When a child falls down, be that a physical or an ego fall, they look to their caregivers to help them find the courage to get up, to move on to the next thing, to smile again. Yet when adults fall down, where is the Compassionate One to help them? A question may arise, “Have I been left alone, to look toward an empty sky, hoping or praying for comfort from the Most High—in vain?”

As a child finds the arms of their beloveds 

to comfort them, 

the Most High manifests for adults 
within the eyes, and open Hearts, 
of those right in their midst;

Or leads them to find someone to turn to
for solace, forgiveness, 
or a reason to continue. 

Thus the Dearest One draws near 
helping us to find 
and climb 
 
onto the rock 
of our Highest Ideals.

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.

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.
