A Prayer for Artistry- 2010

Dearest Christ,

Every morn you paint the sunrise,
Illumining a different landscape each time,
Inspiring the day before us.
We are in awe at the ineffable beauty,
Lighting the hills and the plains.

Show me such grand celebration,
That I may have a hand in this Creation;
Please teach me this artistry,
From You, the Master Himself,
That with divine technique becomes,
The expression of Pure Love.

Painting Mythic- 17th September 2010

PAINTING is the concordance of similarities, the confluence of imagery committed to form. The hieroglyphic mythic dance with mind and Soul. The portrait of God and deity of nature.

Paintings encapsulate the humors, by such comedic gesture and sweeping line.

The intent of the artist is paramount to the subsequent delivery of his creation.

In this way a painting can deliver a concept or an emotion or a chaos, defined by the heart, enabled with purpose, driving the work.
Two colors emit nature whereas one color gives way to introspection. Many colors become as light. No color turns pictures into words - for it can deliver a spirit window, as it has a veil removed as it were, as it was.

The photograph does not convey intent as the painting does, nor character either.

The muse to all great artwork arrives in the Silence and brings many friends whose merriment is in watching the brushes sweep and line.

Suffering Pain, & Medication- 30th May 2010

THERE is a wry irony known sometimes, that spiritual pursuits aggravate our physical pain all the more harder. For the forces that conspire within the 'awakened' or the consciously striving-to-be-conscious man, are intensely energetic - and the nerves can become so ferociously impinged upon, as piano wires are to an zealous infant pianist.

Whilst palsy is of itself a cold condition, the pain experienced within and about its confinement is very hot. There are excessive energetic forces still trying to drive into corrupted pathways and insinuating themselves in regions that they do not belong in, causing aggravation.

Pain medication (with the exception of alcohol) can bring the heat from this overactivity to be nulled for a time - literally damping down this frenzied chaos within.

Our physical bodies are not who we are, but are beloved and cherished companions who serve us lifelong. Subjugated not only to our wills and spirit, and karmic interplay, they are also still evolving their own paths of experience and development; suffering and enjoying our emotional journey with them; and in constant hardship due to aging, pollutants, deformities and the imperfect condition (within and without) that is physical necessity today.

However, firstly and foremostly, the innate nature of our own body is rapturous in our presence. And when we return more fully into them after departing during sleep, they have all the excitement of that puppy at the door to see us - and the devotion besides!

The character of one's own body is generally very good, subservient, and 'connected' to the soul within. It is a profound partnership and one which is over overlooked - for largely good reasons.

It can become a disturbance to the fine knit of the relationship to think of this for too long and hard divisively, about the soul and the anima it resides in separately. Yet having said this, if one is ill or injured and the 'fit' is incomplete or with physical hardship, then that individual's soul is constantly aware of this reality and does not need to be informed of the sovereignty his being has over his dear physical frame.

This world, at this time, is still very much in stages of development. The way a man of the future will eat, breathe, be and age in the body, will all become quite different in the systems that we work with right now. And of course, both mind and will shall also become advanced of this and more enduring.

At present we have developed warmth, we have cooperation, we have the heavenly breath within us flowing down through every level of being and back up into the highest part we can know. If an individual takes pain relief medication, yet has no pain experienced at that time of receiving it, then the warmth that he has will leave him - either temporarily or forever (meaning death will ensue) - depending on the dosage.

And yes, not only does this affect the warmth of his own body into coldness, and the forces that inspire the physical heat, but numbness can take hold, life forces will recoil, and out-of-body experiences can happen, because he is out of his body - and the warmth from the personality can be inhibited as well. Furthermore it is true that there are some who go down to the threshold of death in this cold state and vacate their own bodies, leaving them to entities who can come into them and inhabit thereafter, preventing their own return.

Now when examining the individual who takes medication and is experiencing pain, the very opposite is true. For the pain itself causes and is caused by, a condition of excessive heat - the fiery life forces becoming frustrated and being blocked from the ordinary pathways. And so, to the point of normalcy, the pain relief can quieten the angst of vitality, bringing one back to the threshold of life, as it was.

Pain of itself is debilitating and wearing to the general wellbeing of the whole. Medication can overtax the organs, yet so can the overly persistent vitalities, and because of this, from a spiritual and physical perspective we would suggest that pain relief be the preferred option if possible. This is why context is so very important - and one would have to be very careful as to how much becomes too much.

The drug abuser often begins medicating because of a congregate of forces within his head rather than force causing pain in his body - which he seeks to nullify. And for many, the out-of-body experience is taken to be profoundly blissful all on its own. Sadly and rapidly, the medications themselves can cause an abundance of chaotic forces to come in-spilling without more relief to manage quietening them down. A dive pattern is set in motion aggrieving the restless soul for which there is no relieving, no exit, no answer - other than to give up, suffer or die.

Alcohol, plainly put, is an evil both to the ego and to the body. In relation to the individual who is in pain, its nature is actually stimulating and fiery and whilst it appears to be 'cold', by its paralyzing of the head forces. It will behave as coals to the fire in general, very quickly inflaming the astrality of emotions, nerves and forces overall.

The natures of the opiates and synthesized opiates rapidly pull one heavenwards, flying over the astral terrain but very quickly - glancing as it were without inviting the same astral frenzy.

Acupuncture can unblock heated aggregates, but it can be frustrated where physical injury has created the blockages and they are occurring there on that level first and foremostly. 

Nothing in Nature desires hardship, suffering or pain, and yet conditions within our World can be unspeakably morose at times. The difficulties and suffering within any life literally translate into remarkable rewards of the spirit thereafter. It would seem far too cruel to assign pain for this purpose, and we do not - however compensation does become an outcome of its experience nonetheless.

We are creatures of contrast - we gather experience and measure all things by it. Long after you walk out of this lifetime you will carry with you that 'badge of honor', which is every sting from every spearhead of twinge, stab and ache; and although you cannot feel any of that torment anymore, what you can and do feel is everything else in contrast to that pain once known - and it is wonderful. It becomes a point of reference that will never leave you - and forever enhances the consciousness you carry, wherever you are within the spiritual planes.

Even dreams may reflect this elation referring to the 'now' pure joy - at the 'not-pain' experienced moment by moment - which will remain with you spiritually for all times to follow.

Some things done in one's life cannot be redone, re-said or retraced, or turned back upon - and regret can bear down upon the mind as it frantically tries to make fit the situation. Panic attacks occur when the will itself is in the midst of trying to make components fit where they can't. It can be as simple as trying to motivate a leg that cannot move, to a mind that can't accept; to endeavor to control the uncontrollable; to be content with something that is unthinkable ... many times situations and the mind cannot be reconciled, and the individual who knows this trauma becomes doubly depressed believing that somehow (unreasonably) that they should be 'on top' or 'in control' of this situation.

Trying to placate self or others is superficial only and evasive. For this experience of alarm generally comes from very real problems at hand.

Often folk berate themselves at not being able to cope better, when in point of fact they are living a hero's quest - in hope, in breath, in struggles so borne.

The friction of forces which is anxiety itself is literally a mental pain which is not dissimilar to the physical pain as described earlier. The mind and will are overstimulated, energetically summoning vitality to assist in making right an unponderable - it is a sphinxy kind of bind, for the riddle of anxiety is not how can I make this all fit together, but rather "how can I desist from something so important?".

Prayer is incredibly potent in this regard (apart from the Divine supplication it can bring also) - for in prayer we are not desisting but rather persisting with deferring. Our forces may move out from our heads, our minds, and our own will to that which is further than ourselves ... and we are immeasurably relieved of not only the chaos of the excessive forces, but also the answer is there in the prayer itself.

The immediate solution to the Sphinx relay riddle that can entrap one's courage into a static chaos, is by deferring it onto prayer. It may be a specific prayer, the Lord's Prayer, or a prayer which is pertinent to the problem of the moment. 

The spiritual life is truly lived in the moment, and the heart of a man succeeds all of his actions past. It is that which he is known by - no more and no less.

Although when briefly visited these topics may appear merely platitudinous - they are not. There are golden standards which can be explored and reasoned to the very deepest of understandings. The good man who is committed to this path before him, implores the world by that of his very being. And he can live goodness and goodness will know him. 

One last word on the subject of pain: Your brother in pain, Beloved Christ, knows the hardships that it causes. Trial, dilemma, conflict and contrast - He sees and feels your pain. Our most mortal God weeps for better days. You can go to Him in your prayers and in your sleep. And in like to Him, your strength and your courage builds up the future worlds. For the substance of Mankind is not fabricated by luxury, nor made sound and given permanence by holidays and acquiescence - it is won at the coalface of terror, faith, sincerity, and an earnest belief in life itself - with an intuitive sensing, and deliberate enquiry, with a heart to the whole, and a long reaching vision withstanding.

Emotions- May 8th 2010

EMOTIONS are stronger now than ever before; or more correctly put, they are consciously experienced more intensely than they were in the past.

Can you imagine sitting in a cave with your back to the entrance and facing a convex wall, and at a certain point the light floods into the entrance and you experience the entire wall light up in front of you in broad space. This vision is large and almost overwhelming, and the wall itself appears to be made of light, emanating the very light that is broadcast upon it.

When we experience emotion, either from the realm of our soul or life of desire, it is with this interpretive glamor - an exaggeration of experience - literally a projection of our own self before us, so that we may perceive ourselves through this process. A man may divine himself, his knowings, his obligations, his commitments, his opinions, via referencing his ego or by witnessing the display of the emotions that he carries.

Not all individuals have a ready access to their egoic consciousness. Having said that, we are through Christ's design upon us, always with the ability to truly know both Him and that of ourselves and of the higher portents… yet certain conducts can make it difficult for many, who are still splaying amongst the numerous realities that are upon them daily.

Interceptions to this egoic knowing occur, and as we have discussed in the past, there are poisons to this knowing (such as intoxicants) which persuade a man all too easily away from his true self and egoic consciousness.

In time, as the being of Man gathers experiences and confidence navigating this experience, there will be a natural perception of self that is so clear and immediate that happiness streams from this knowing. To just exist is an immediate experience of profound happiness. Birds know this experience.

We all have this happiness, but until our egoic consciousness is clearly linked to our awareness in the present, we do not 'feel' it so. Angels have it ordinarily.
It truly is most sought after and the topic of many fair societies - how can a man find true happiness? And yet this answer is not a fast catch - it is simple, yet to be thoroughly obtained and won.

By refining one's ego through honesty and good conduct, by strength of character, will come the strength of self and an open heart that knows also the true self within. You see if we go against what we know to be correct, or if we assault or insult ourselves with behaviors or practices that demean or demoralize our own selves, then we are so distracted from this happiness of simply being - it is as though our life's light has gone from us.

Masters know this because they themselves have felt the oppressive darkness too - both in former conditions of their own life's mistakes and also with the sadness of so many today. This sadness is of course one of the emotions which is broadcast out from the soul and desire body.

If you are in a movie theater and you see the light projector through a comparatively small window of film - frame by frame - and see how largely it appears on the blank wall before the viewer - this truly is the picture of emotion. The frames are so much smaller than the image broadcast, aren't they?

Our minds are so complex it often requires a full sized projection to get through to our perceptions - and especially within these times of confluency and mental noise.

Dogs are walking emotion. These creatures suffer, and experience happiness too, to Imax levels of emotional proportion. They are sensitive also to their human friend's emotional life as well - often displaying an animated production directly from their carers. Of course also, the emotions can quickly traverse one to another in perpetual relay when a man loves dog and dog loves man - it becomes a theater of romance and ever-strong affection.

On the whole all animals in general are developing their senses of emotion and perception of it. This development of the Animal Kingdom is very similar to that of our own discerning and display. It is interesting to note that the actions of egoic knowing are internal, whilst the knowing and perceiving through the emotions is gained through the means of projecting them out from ourselves so that we can view our own experience of them. One difficulty with this means to experience, is that they are palpable to others as well - not only to ourselves - and can have a range of effects on others by their action.

Emotions can also be so strong in some, that folk who are not competent with ego referencing may interpret the emotions of others within their own vicinity, as being their own experience.

Children, especially those under the age of seven, will directly feel the impression of the emotions around them and once again believe them to be that of their own. These impressions conveyed and received will go on to last into adulthood.

They are difficult to address because they are not defined as clear happenings, and may come from almost anywhere. Many adults often try to invoke suitable memories to go with these hovering emotions - but inaccurately so. It really need not have come from a trauma of one's own, to have lent the experience of such.

Because you see, the important thing to know about the emotions is that they are nine parts subjective. Their fabric is of our own conjecture and they enlarge so quickly as to gather a pulse, that you can see all kinds of emotional creation begin from almost nothing.

There are naturally strong emotions that directly offspring from major events that warrant their exclaim - both cheerful and horrendous - and are proportionate to the firsthand experience of that time. However most emotion experienced day-to-day is fantastical and projected from afar - born from daydreams, desire, past emotion, ill health, wants and needs; and others in influence upon us as well.

So whilst it is true to say that emotions are a way of perceiving ourselves and our own condition and needs of soul and body, they can also be very confusing; especially to the egoic knowing that requires a quiet place to work out from.
Emotion provokes emotion. Even if it is a merely perceived emotion - for example: watching an actor cry… knowing it to be an actor… can still cause the viewer to have tears via a perceived empathy. It is not a real empathetic resonance - at least not in a direct way - but here is the very nature of the emotion, for it is not the purpose of its experience to be of real substance but to convey something to us. This is why we can respond to a perceived emotion and also to emotion which is not of our own making.

Emotion is a primal language which preceded words.

The sharing of thoughts and ideas through the communication of words comes from the egoic knowing and egoic capability. However an older language, before we projected words, was that of emotion; and it was somewhat different to what it is today.

There was a time, before words, when things were plain and even the most enchanting of stories had substance. Men and women were incapable of lying or pretence or posture; they were simply and plainly living a natural existence. This form of living still carries through to our beings in the spiritual worlds after death today.

In a similar fashion, we are who we are and it is self-evident. Words as we use them are not needed to convey a communication at all. However the emotional realm today in the world is unreliable to us now. Once it was a true representative of how we felt, our interior and exterior life, but over time became exaggerated and infected and muddied, therefore confusing to everyone.

Words also can exaggerate and distort the truth - contaminating it and confusing all who are tenacious to their meaning.

St Francis communicated to the animals (and to his Community) with the emotion of the old language.

Is love an emotion? No. If we are to understand that the emotions themselves are a form of language, one for self and for others to be known by, then we can begin to see that just as words are not that which they represent, neither are bare and blatant emotions the very thing they represent.

Just as the word 'love' is not love itself, neither is the emotion of love the true source and essence of the love it may convey or depict in part.

This goes for all of the emotions as well –
• courage exists within the soul's attitude before becoming energized and realized in emotion;
• lust begins in longing, far before it exhibits the passions that prevail;
• piety bleeds from the soul state of natural reverence;
• hatred always comes from self loathing and evaluation, becoming a distortion of criticism which was begot by judgment;
• affection can come from self loving as well as the memories that the soul carries;
• gratitude is awash with rejoicing and is very close to the expression of the true condition of happiness which we mentioned earlier;
• mirth and joviality come from the spirit of beginnings and birth (all things new). It is an attitude of soul which has experienced wonder and renewal countless times during its existence.

We each have a catalog of emotional hieroglyphs, whilst also our own dictionary of interpretation to go with them.

Nature itself is full of emotion, and in terms of the 'old speak' there was also the bubbly ecstatic emotion of the lively nature spirits to be felt; and so one could likely say that the forest or the countryside was literally at times speaking to you. And of course this was the experience before words came to us.

Infants under the age of two will perceive the countryside and animals with a far greater clarity and impressioning than we can arrive at now.

Sometimes meditation will take an indirect course into a pre-word condition and the emotions experienced will be stronger and often interpreted as a 'spiritual' experience. This is not to say that mediation can't take you into a higher perception, if your character is prepared and receptive to the finer percepts. Yet it is also to point out that the persuasive emotions can also drift in and conjure all kinds of desires and experiences which might be mistaken for being real or wanted.

In a sense plain words can be far more reliable to deal with. Emotional exchanges can very quickly make creations all of their own that begin with little or no fundamental reality whatsoever. The very minute two people are engaged in such an interchange you will see how rapidly this emotional energy can take them both miles down roads unplanned for.

Today we have discussed the language of words and also that of the emotions, yet there is one more to examine, namely that of the inner dialogue which is profoundly resonant with all of Creation.

Our very spirits are imbibed with heavenly attributes and knowing. More natural to us than any language of world or starry plane is that essential cord we all have, which connects us to our very beginnings. And by that cord, back through to an eternity that keeps us safely placed within it, we hold the keys to all of the fellow souls around us and the beings that uphold us and the Creation that does nurture us. Amongst, beneath, and within… when we, for a time, can hush the words and calm the emotions, we can feel it.

This blessing of the Divine Presence will never leave you. Doubt is just another emotion, and if words sound empty at times, they are. Divinity is real and will always support you, now and forever - you are.

The Path to Common Sense- 18th April 2010

DIVINING reason is not always or exactly through the mechanical conduits of brain-based thinking. As logic would have it, there are many linear conclusions that all appear 'reasonable' when aligned from the same starting point, yet in the main can be as nonsensical and unhelpful as an egg counter is to a chicken.

Reason and commonsense thinking involves a practicality that has bearings all of its own. It needs to pertain to something defined that has a purpose, also which is clearly recognized; and therefore there is the ability of foresight, which is required from the outset. So we cannot have practical and helpful thinking without the ability to foresee what it is we are trying to achieve via our mind's collective.

Now purpose, or at the very least, a sense of purpose, is also necessary for us to be able to begin and carry through with our cognitive enquiry. This is a very interesting point, because all learning - and this follows also for the highest of learning - must begin with either a conscious or innate purpose driving it. The very key to unlock any knowledge is Right Purpose.

And what is 'Right Purpose'? Firstly, the word 'purpose' does relate to a cause - but mainly it is also a very distinct feeling or emotion experienced quite strongly either in the heart or the gut or the chest, by the plaintiff, knowing what is missing from their lives so far.

Purpose drives all of nature, and in its highest aspect it becomes the sensing and being of the Divine Will. It is not the Life itself that drives the Divine Will - although it can 'feel' like it - but rather the sensing and the moving with the current of this massive life-force which inspires all energetic happenings around us. It is a motivator to sense this purpose - but purpose itself is the sensing of this Divinity moving and expressing its way through All.

Every aspect of nature and being is fundamentally and principally aware of and emanating Divine Purpose. This is the living realization of that which the Divine Will operates, moves and manifests through.

In more archaic times, when folk spoke of sensing or feeling the purpose of something, they literally meant that they had consciously come to know the feeling of the life, pulse and Divine presence within something, which was confirmation to them of it being 'real', or with the strong possibility therefore of becoming made real.

The act of coupling which could eventuate with a newborn, is given to this push and presence of strong purpose being experienced - bringing an elevated experience of the driving force within.

The scientist or the artist is often encouraged past physical endurance to work to tasks because they can sense and also bring to themselves, some of the energetic life which moves to enable the fruition of their tasks or projects envisioned.

It is this fundamental sense of purpose which motivates every movement within our own bodies, and daily enables us to wake, to eat, to speak and to participate in a concert of society; this sensing of the life within; a feeling for the Divine Will and its own knowing. Without this principal sensing, an individual can become ill in a variety of ways: lose coordination in body or function, in speech or rationality, in optimism or spirituality. 

This is why one never meets a happy atheist - because fundamentally they have lost their ability to sense the Divine Will and its energetic Life moving all around and within them. Without this faculty of sensing, is no sense of divine or personal purpose. Without this sensing or knowing of its presence, they have not the faith in there being purpose, which is greater than themselves or wonderful within themselves. An all-pervading sense of futility prevails instead.

Optimism requires the ability to sense and believe in happy outcomes. This is relatively easy when one 'feels' purpose all around. We are content that even if we do not have the foresight to know exactly how something might be arrived at, there is the experience nonetheless of the pure purpose which is getting us there. Without this there is little or no confidence, and only the negatives around us are perceived.

The question here is how an individual can find their way back to being able to experience the purpose and Divine Will all around them? Folk who have difficulty with purpose are often within situations which make it generally worse for them - never themselves being involved in tasks which have a beginning, a middle and an end. They are rarely if ever, investing themselves in a labor that requires foresight, hope, reasoning, projected outcome, purpose and positive outcome.

Folk who nurture crops experience great purpose with planting and also the results. This experience spills over into a generalized sensing which affects all parts of their lives and thinking.

It does not have to be growing one's own food that will enable this however, basically any labor that is actively participated in, that has a beginning which is different to the end, and takes some time and effort to achieve, will bring success in this.

The individual whose mind has unraveled into a futility or hopelessness could have arrived there by quite a few means. The person of wealth often lives their life within short compartments, rarely getting the opportunity to do or even witness the long chain of laboring events that lead to positive outcomes. The less they exert themselves in 'whole' areas of work, the less they begin to perceive its functioning everywhere like that. It is symptomatic of the modern era.

Individuals whose minds have been scattered, using thought diffusing intoxicants, often feel the blackness of a hopeless depression, because their own sensing of purpose has been annihilated also. It is a desperate state to be in, and often the anger, pessimism and atheism to follow, is just symptomatic of this terrible loss in relation to the Divine Will moving through them and through others.

When you see groups of recovering individuals doing craft works - perhaps to sell at a charity stall - this is tremendously remedial to their situation. It is not just a casual pursuit or something to keep folk occupied with, it really is the road home to recovery.

Creating and working a garden, knitting a garment, preparing and cooking a meal, any industrious act which requires planning, effort, time and delayed yet worked-for outcome, will be the most positive remedy to give to the person who is suffering from Divine Purpose sense deficit.

And now to Right Purpose: We have just discussed what it is to know and to not know, the sensing of Purpose in general as it moves around us in our every day lives, but what of one's own personal purpose? That which has driven us into this life, and gives us our own sense of meaning which is especially significant to our visions and goals?

Right Purpose is, quite naturally, distinctly and inextricably connected to its brother, Right Conduct. This is the first principle to realize of Right Purpose.

How often our own personal paths give way to doing the wrong thing morally, believing it is in the name of our overall personal purpose, not realizing that it only ever takes us many steps back once entered into.

With hand on heart we all sense our own primeval purpose. Whether recognized, or on the way to becoming made real or not, every individual has a higher purpose and gift to Creation that is signature to them. This is not a mere nicety or placating sentimentalism offered to the hopeless, it is a truth which speaks to the nobility of Spirit and the promise that it offers each and every one. For you see it is not enough within Creation to just be beautiful. Creation likes to see you do things as well.

 Beings thrive on activity, and the souls of men and women are no different. Inactivity is not natural to any world - either here or beyond.

However, if an individual is participating in conversation or activities or employment, where they are going against their innate sense of right conduct - against their heart's discerning – then this will block their higher purpose's design, effectiveness and becoming.

This may appear simple - i.e. just do the 'right thing' - however, as most of us reflect, we are singularly compromised daily with all kinds of thoughts and behaviors that are less than we would ideally visit and become.

The Christian repentance serves to swiftly realign the purpose in a positive way. It does not of its own, accomplish any recompense of course, but it does automatically (if sincere) get the individual back on track with their path to Right Purpose.

Realizing infringements is key to reform. If one has a general sense of purpose in this, there will also be the optimism that it is worthwhile in the effort, and sainthood can be achieved!

One very important point about the Path which is often overlooked, is that we all have already traveled a very long road and achieved so very much already. None of us (including the Masters) are yet complete, and nor expect to be any time soon. We all work with the task at hand, and learning to do this is in itself a great virtue.

Honesty, frankness and pragmatism are requirements for self-assessment when it comes to entering the path of reason. Demons of the personality do not like these three (Honesty, Frankness and Pragmatism) and hide behind such concealments as vanity, pride, false egoism, and indulgence.

These Demons deter one also from finding their true purpose. They work to feed themselves; and work hard they do. All of the personal energy of the individual who entertains them gets spent defending and protecting the continuation of deadend exploits that prop up and support their grave façade of usefulness.

Foresight is not logically arrived at, in respect to it being relative to that which has not already occurred; and having not yet actualized, has no clear and distinct patterning as to its logical pathways. One can presume patterns will follow past patterns, but higher logic realizes that with the multitudinous variables in any circumstance, the future is always unknown until it arrives.

Putting it more plainly, foresight is not mere reasoning alone. It is a mix of intuitive sensing, planning, hoping, purpose, some logical surmising and inspiration. And four of the six of these are not logical, mathematical, or purely rational, but rather imbibed with imagination and spiritual induction.

The Path to Common Sense is the least dangerous road traveled. It defers to the conscience as much as it does the logic of past happenings, and all the while so buoyantly held and delivered by the swift push of purpose onto the glory of its divine delivery!

I give you my word and my Word gives you His- 2nd April 2010 Easter

My Life is as the Wind
As it passes over Earth,
Touching the faces of my beloved;
All around them,
Yet they do not see Me
But know My breath daily...

Air of air, Life of life, Light of light -
I am around you unto Eternity.

People ask, what rotates the World?
What moves the heart?
Is it Love or the blood?
I can tell you it is neither,
For what truly moves the heart -
Be it with a saint or be it with a villain -
Is Goodness alone.

Goodness infills the cavities of want,
And where there is wanting,
There I be.
For in Me there is supplication,
Constant remuneration
And continual salvation.

From me the four winds issue:
Of Knowledge, of Peace, of Striving and Grace.

It is asked, where does the World come from?
Is it from the Mind of the Divine?
Or from a corruption of matter into genius?
Or has it peeled time backwards
Perhaps to end as it had begun?

Yet time is not servitude to matter
Nor its commander;
Such worlds are as the cosmic dust,
That glitter the pavements of Heaven,
And are as many in number.

For all of the scores of souls and beings
That populate the Heavenly Graces
Within this whorl of Worlds and times,
Of past and now and so to come,
Are loved and saved, each one.

This World is no different in that
Its substance did come from
Same infinite source,
From which all worlds are drawn.

But time is no master,
And of itself creates nothing,
It only serves to debilitate;
It cannot create.

The origin of Life is Goodness,
And it is all around you.
Find it and you find also,
The answers to all questions.

There are no mysteries - only confusion.
There are no secrets, only exclusion.
There is nothing that cannot be known,
Should you become it yourself.

Our Heavenly home
Does not tithe the wisdoms,
But delivers them daily.

What of the Bloods and why?
Blood conveys life in a singular way.
It has helped to contain that part of a man
Which is unique to him.
We do not bleed in Heaven,
But wear ourselves on the outer side.

And what of the sexes?
Mothers and Fathers -
Not eagles and serpents.
Communion, not feasting;
A higher ordinance calls to the soul
To participate in the sumptuousness of knowing,
And from that becomes Creation.

Knowledge itself is not witless;
It has already a mind of its own.
Men are not exclusive to mind or its imports.
There is not one thing to be known
That has not already been known.

Christendom makes for an awkward franchise -
In service to its people
It can be gracious and healing;
Yet it can also be quick to bully
The very many who are
In most need of a gentle hand up.

Tyrannical rules of salvation
Preclude all true salvation.
For the holy meaning of its delivery,
Is through the sanctity of divine retribution
And forgiveness alone -
And is not in any way
Dependent or assured by a Papal official.

No man can fathom the heart of another
Or deliberate the justice of his term.
The very moment a sin has been entered into,
The heart of the man darkens for that time
And feels the pain of it upon him.

Truly this World is not as substantial,
As you or I would have it.
Yet what we began is circumspect;
It is a house without windows or walls,
Windows for which to see heaven,
Walls that define the very spaces within,
And then multiply increasingly
To the needs of the Earth.

There are two faces to suffering:
The unjust and the incomplete.
Sorrow has meaning,
Whereas cruelty is random
And almost impossible to make peace with;
Therein lies its infection.

For violence incurs the terrible storms,
And a tumult of irrationality manifest.
Jubilation becomes grief,
And we all sorrow
When an unkind thought
composes its malices.

Yet often such torrents of ill reckoning
Come from a deficit of gladness.
The insults of a blasphemy
Know nothing of a true gladness
Or its benefactorial merits.
The angry and abusive are sodden in want
Without the gratitude for that
For which they already have.

Gladness is the cream that sits atop
The sweet milk, not the sour.

Not all words can bring comfort and consolation temporarily,
And not all things of this World may also.
But at the closing of one's life,
And the beginning of the heavenly term,
It is all but washed away and given meaning.
That which causes suffering now vanishes,
Without a stain of even a remembrance,
And is resolved according to its first concern.

Robes are like uniforms,
And designed to hide a man
So that he becomes a face without a face.

Goodness is the ultimate chi,
And for those who do not live this,
They try to energize through other means,
Or people,
But to wit, die in trying.

Breathe goodness and you breathe life.
Gladness, Goodness and Grace - the treble gifts.
The health of the soul is paramount
To the future of Mankind.

This day of ghouls
Is a sad reminiscence.
Pity the ruthless
For they soon become toothless.

All Glory truly be to He,
From which all Truths were born,
And then to live and breathe as soul,
In myriad and manifest,
In places torn and houses blessed.

I give you my word and my Word gives you His,
And my vision of All as it dwells within Grace.
Feel its current,
See its being
In a constant reappearing,
In the wishing and the doing,
And the continual improving.
 Bless them All!

Let Thy Will be Done- 7th March 2010

TWO years before Time began, the days were created; and the breaking moment between existence and its motivated motion gave Time itself both momentum and the possibility of catch up... to be from that beginning moment onwards, 'out of synch' yet with a patterning and a precedence for back-changing, stopping, and the revision of what is to be.

All life manifests within the higher realms before the earthly worldly times embrace or follow these realities. Yet the World itself holds notions and actions of its very own which can be independent of the direct spiritual impulses. Both men and matter can move indiscriminately - even harmfully - and certainly (moreover) the freewill choices shuffle the boundaries of predestined happenings continuously.

Miracles and interventions are of the heavenly kind. This is not to say that a man, woman or child cannot of their own instigate a marvelous charity - oh yes, these choices and actions are real, deliberate and independent too. However the Graces of Divine Intervention are divine, i.e. the outcome hoped for has to occur within the spiritual blueprint firstly, and then into the worldly sphere incorporated within a certain time - for untoward rescues and turnarounds that are positive, are not effected solely within the earthly sphere.

Matter is responsive to Divinity's Will and to higher causal being - it is not responsive directly to even that of its own. Some science tends to assume that interactions of life occur in communication within singular planes, but this is not so.

Nor is it the case with people either. When individuals communicate from one to another meaningfully, it is not by the exchange of words alone but is manifesting over many higher planes above the physical conversation. There is literally an exchange of ideas and a conveyance of thought, and a sense of self and of angel and even of the very Presence of God, from one to another.

Not one thing is independently single layered. Referring to other planes of activity is essential to all action within life for even the simplest of transactions. And it is when an action becomes earthbound and renegade to this that there becomes a potentially devastating consequence to follow after. 'Other plane' referring does not have to be cyclical or predestined, but it needs to be discerned in accordance with so many otherwise varying factors.

To be in concert with higher wisdoms, determinings and considerations is not a matter of complicity or automation, it simply gives over the will of one into the consideration of many; and from this there will be a beneficial outcome.

It is both good and creative to hold personal hopes and ambitions, have wants and desires for all kinds of future events to come. But there also needs to be the attitude of spirit that, in a rather polite obeisance to the futures, exercises both patience and levity with a far broader perspective to our own personal requests.

At what point do we grow to become proper and worthy students of the higher path? It is precisely that point when we give over our personal desires into the higher considerations. We do not necessarily give up on them, just give them over. It is the exact and precise moment of realization that this world and the living beings and souls around me have their place, their needs and equal consideration.

As simple as this sounds, it is so often forgotten. Can you wait for your Mercedes until every last man and woman and child have full meals in their day? And if not, why not? Are you serious about effecting good work in the world? For in attitude it begins. One may not be particularly serious - one foot on the path and the other on the precipice - but this is not a journey, it is a nothing.

To mindfully pray "If it be Thy Will" before tasks and plannings, becomes a fine caveat for karma. It is not a renunciation of responsibility, yet in effect and by effect, it is. Our lives reform when this inner attitude is consciously deliberated.

At this point of development our egos are powerful; we might not all have a tremendous control or knowledge of their capability, but they are nonetheless very potent in their action. It is at this very point we learn to exercise the inner patience and converse in reverent consideration of the higher aspects of all that we do - to pause from our willing and be prepared to pause until such a time as the spiritual worlds can find a harmonious or beneficent time to manifest whatever it is we are trying to realize.

So much imagination is wasted by desirous or agitated projections that are willful. The very moment we give over these desires we are relieved of their energetic bearings and freed up to do what we can do in a day. The 'Universe' takes very seriously the souls who consult with an open heart and with consideration of others - obliged to circumstances.

At present this World is quite a magical place with vast and imposing limitations. It is still not easy to navigate or interpret, and there are many pioneer souls who are still mapping its ways, even whilst it ever reforms and changes also. It can be said that the conditions of living have wondrous moments - beautiful segments, pockets of happy times....but on the whole (and even for those how have developed and worked themselves far) it is still a terrain fraught with uncomfortable and perilous difficulties.

And so where would we be without the full blessing of higher guidance?
Should any man desire to go it alone and live by the standard "Do what thou wilt" - i.e. to suit only themselves and divine not the humors of the Heavens firstly - then it will be that they go throughout their lives without the full support that they could have been offered back.

If but for nothing else than practicality - if not for the affection of others, the compassion, the humanity, the charity, the moral duty, the receiving, the believing, the sheer relieving - if not for these but for nothing else than practicality, why not therefore live in consult with the wisdoms which incorporate the interests of all?
• Before our thinking: "Let Thy Will be done."
• Held before our wanting: "Let Thy Will be done."
• And before our choosing: "Let Thy Will be done."

And this is in cooperation (if not in deed but in heart) with the entire force of Life itself which seeks collaboration and duly awards he or she who bears this upon their breast and impresses the world with their sincerity, and from one to another do know each other as true brothers in this Community of the All.

You are but a student of one if you do not live by this standard. This is not to say that another individual or organization should dictate your doings and know above your own discernment as to what is required of you by God or by Heaven or for the betterment of all. It is not to forgo your own license to self but moreover to enhance such empowerment in refining both attitude and intuition to the spiritual frequencies.
By this we become more empathetic and sensitive to the conditions around us and informed of the realities about to prevail. Of ourselves no one man instigates the future - his decisions and actions can and do make small and great changes but when it is said: "Man ye are Gods" it could be better said:

"Man ye are Gods - among many Gods - enveloped and governed by The God, Our God, that contains us all."
