SO LET IT BE A DAY OF LOVE ….

IN YOUR HEART. IN YOUR LIFE, IN YOUR WORLD.

Will you join me?

I have just put up a new page called, WILL YOU JOIN ME? Do go and take a look.You can find it above with the other Page titles that are listed just below the image of Pearls.

It’s about a call to love in action, about focusing one day a week on LOVE – together – wherever we are in the world, whoever we are in the world. Letting Divine Love permeating our bodies, minds, and hearts. Letting that Love flow through us like a gentle wave upon the shores of our world until, gradually, we and our world begin to stabilize in Love. It’s about recognizing the healing power of love, and letting it be a part of all we are and do – for at least one day a week – Sunday – together.

Check out the page. There’s more written there.

Obviously I hope you will join me.images-lotus

TOGETHER – LET’S MAKE SUNDAY A DAY OF LOVE.

The focus:  The spiral of life carries within it all energies and frequencies. To many, the highest form of love is Compassion. THE WATERS OF COMPASSION is a Template from The Garden that calls on us to illuminate our relationships in the here & now, be they the inner or with others, via the portal of loving kindness and compassion – to ensure that our personal Gardens are blossoming in harmony with the high frequencies of Compassion that are now escalating within The Garden of Love itself.

To become a Keeper of this template is to commit oneself to walking such a path.

For many of us…

 
For many of us in this world, the time of Christmas is close at hand. It is a time of celebration, a time of remembering, a time of gratitude, and a time of family. Within its spiritual story is the journey of a young couple searching for a safe place to rest; a place to birth a child who would later prove to be, for many, a messiah.

Finding no room at the inn, so we are told, wherever they went, they ended up in a stable where the child ultimately was born.

The flight from one place to another is not unique. As a species, we have been migrating for as long as history can tell us, probably even longer. We move for many reasons, but much of the time we move because where we presently are is no longer a safe place to be.

Like Mary and Joseph, we flee for a better safer land.

As we prepare to gather our families around us, to decorate and light the Christmas tree, to sing cherished carols, and honour a special time, let us ponder this – Let us not be the ones who punish the innocent because of the atrocities of a few.  Let us not be the ones who say – there is no room at the inn.

Our Mission.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Here’s an Old Irish Blessing for you all – for those back in The Green, for those around the world, and for those who love to be Irish on Paddy’s Day —

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours.

Land of the Long White Cloud

LAND OF THE LONG WHITE CLOUD – AOTEAROA – Where stories linger like slender strings of tiny ocean pearls within your billowy sleeves of cloud-like memory. Where sky and sea walk hand in hand and in their mirage-like midst worlds both old and new appear to hover, and on their very edges ethereal doors stand ready to be entered, to share gifts perhaps waiting to be given. Is it but a dream to feel this way? And yet somehow, I think not.

                Kia Ora, you say.

                Aloha, I answer. For that is what I know in my heart.

Heart – the door you offer, at least to me – the chance to enter a land of ancient openness and be at peace, to walk with ease again along the corridors of time. As if a jewel had been here patiently waiting to be retrieved and lived anew. Strange to find you now, for I have landed on your shores when the earth is rumbling mightily and the ring of shifting sands and olden fissures is making itself known. Breaking through the seeming solidness of life and coughing up its innards for the entire world to see.

                Kia Kaha, you say, for you have been through this before and know no fear.

Is that the opportunity, when all else falls away, to know no fear? To know that life always begins anew, that if we open our hearts and trust the birth, it can perhaps be even better than before, that we are strong in spirit no matter what?

I am touched by the hearts of people on this land of yours, Oh Long White Cloud. Touched by their generosity and kindness in the midst of devastation – their willingness to reach out and help another. It is the humaneness within humanity, is it not – to offer aid without question or condition? Too often we forget this as we stride our world of ever-increasing gadgets and sound bites. Your people are helping us to remember.

Ke Aloha Aotearoa, your beauty is astounding. Gods have walked upon your earth and fished in your waters. Songs have been sung in your honour and winds have dashed your shores. Mountains high and long have risen dressed in snowy garments. And films have told stories of Middle Earths and Hobbit kingdoms. You are part of a realm we now call, The Pacific. But somehow you are part of something else as well. It lives within the very fabric of your air, and hence within the fabric of your people. Amongst all else, it is a strength of heart and the never-ending ability to dare to weave new story into life, no matter what. A wondrous gift this is for the world to see and feel. Thank you for bringing it to our table.

                 Kia Kaha, Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud. Kia Kaha New Zealand.

You are loved.

…I wrote this piece one week after the big earthquake hit Christchurch. As the week went on, I became deeply moved by the people there and New Zealand as a whole. At the time, I sent this to friends, but now that I have this blog, I wanted to share it with you. Christchurch still lives on shaky ground!
