A Glimpse Ahead~

Love eradicates the old taste of mistakes.

Dewlike essences wash clean, stinging sores

that linger from escapades into delirium,

as past mayas silently spiral away.

Lightness of touch devoid of the burning claw of temptation is

Distilled now into a healing balm of mysterious rapture.

 

A sunlit embrace reminds you who you are,

as rushes of gratitude spill everywhere,

awakening you at once to the reverence of joy.

Gratitude’s bright face beckons you Home,

as you catch glimpses of the Self that knows for

Better or for worse.

Opening to the course of true light takes you silently

to the place that has no name and carries you through centuries

past, through ignorant falls from grace,

when resentment was a thief who stole your happiness,

Caught now by a higher Self that plans your resurrection,

Guiding you to the path that holds the universe together.

Still haven of remembrance comes upon you,

through the fragrant jasmine that blooms only at night,

Bringing you back to the place where you are perfect and whole.

To My Beloved of Another Time~Another Age~

This was originally written as a “Wedding Blessing” to a charming and talented young couple on 10/10/04.

As I rediscover this blessing, which  was written , almost 10 years ago, I recognise within it, my own blessing for my beloved of another age, an age which is forthcoming, a time of peace, of happiness, and of true love.

The original Wedding Blessing has been almost totally revised and has emerged as something incredibly lovely.

The last 8 words remain the same in both blessings and parts of the original are contained in this new version.

 

Blessings for “US”

This is my  wish for you my darling, for our life together, for our wedded bliss, for the “us” to come.

The “us” which has already been, and which will be once again and again, eternally.

I wish you mornings washed in sunlight, warmed by our voices speaking of eternity.

I wish for us a marriage of pristine union, ease, grace, and of universes happily coalescing.

I wish for us the joy of the pilgrimage that has brought us the reward of the Promised Land over and over again.

I wish you the thrill of Gratitude, overflowing everywhere, nourishing and awakening all of life.

I wish you the compassionate embrace of all pasts, presents, and futures.

I wish you Love’s Dominion bonded to the Soul of God,  in total  completeness that you may know at once the reverence of  joy and the victory of breaking new ground into the Holy Age.

I heard music coming through the night out of nowhere~

A note from the soul on  a night of extreme inspiration and knowingness coming to the surface.

(Found in a journal from August 28, 2009…an auspicious ending to an auspicious day )

 Poetic Pieces of Eternity,

Speaking of Longing

“I heard music coming through the night from nowhere,

poetic fragments of eternity speaking of longing.

YOU are here, so am I.

You are Listening

Your Readiness is honed for awakening, clearing.

Guidance for destiny.

A sweet summer song of solace is heard.

From the known to the unknown,

Traveling in and out of spaces to the time before this time.

Today (In the fall of 2014)

I would call it “spinning the cycle of self-realization”.

 Back then the words were:

crystalline star structure resonance  magnified,

Traveling through the star system in a chamber nautilus of surprise.

   I called  upon a powerful mountain of love to calm this soul and give it enough nectar

to become free from  all discomfort from lagging behind the times.

 Sweet saving Light of the Supreme, may you shine upon the heart of all souls.

Another day, another way to come home to the Self.

 Powerful Silence comes in as I reconnect to the Highest on High where we all meet in Love,

 with the One who gives all.

  Yes, connecting to the Source,

the Ocean of Love~

nothing in between,

merged~

The door has been flung wide open,

by love and appreciation.

And  love reigns in my heart,

 solid, focused, gentle knowing,

carefully nestled in the unfurling of my crown.

Accept all just as it is and love it into Being,

Accept all just as it is and love it into Being.

 Acceptance, humility, honor

Accept and know

Accept and grow

Accept and flow

Accept and go wherever, whenever

And burn up all that is dross, easily and quickly.

Blessed Be in Acceptance of all Souls and all Paths to the ONE.

The Power in Keeping a Journal, Part 2

Finding writings in old journals is like finding secret treasure. Rereading this one, from August 20,2009, the words had the accuracy of a compass,  pointing to true North, and clarifying  the direction I’ve been navigating for a long, long  time.  What you will easily see is a relentless pilgrimage which could be called “the search for lost innocence”.

Reading through this passage , what emerged, was ‘soul’, the pure, powerful being of  light, the being  beautiful in silence and comfortable with truth.

This is the ‘me’ that had been so  covered by the dust of this corporeal world, that I had become unrecognizable, even to my Self.  No wonder, for many drought-striken  years, my journals poigntantly reflected the  theme of  ‘The self longing for it’s Self’.  The True Self that is completely full, lacking nothing, the unlimited vessel of peace, love, wisdom, and bliss.

As,  souls, we come from another world, a world “beyond sound”perfectly described by the Hindi word~ Nirvana which translates to ‘without sound’.

We, souls, are incognito cosmic travelers!

Incognito, indeed…such a wonder that  I, the Soul have been mostly unknown and unrecognized while the body which I inhabit and animate has been running the show.  I, the soul have waited patiently and quietly, very quietly in the wings for my time to emerge.

Emergence began through this journal entry, written late into a summer’s evening. It emerged after a rich discussion at a weekly gathering, called ‘Council’ which I shared in for eight years, while living in the moist, fertile mountains of Wailua.

It was on this night that the glimmerings of  true identity would be felt.  It was through a powerful thought-generated feeling that this piece of writing opened the door of ‘awareness’…it all started with this:

So much more is coming through that wishes to be said; an opening made by what was spoken tonight at Council allows a raw, pure innocence to come to the surface, breaking through the barriers of ego and personality, emerging, to be heard and healed.  Out of the depth of the dark well of incubation in the bubbling cauldron, arises the pure liquid light of recognition and insight, suddenly, yet cautiously, one precious moment at a time.

Recognition of Self had emerged on that evening under the shelter of the stars. What I heard speaking, was the heart, the true heart of the soul, opening up once again to feel all the goodness there is to feel.   In the midst of this feeling lay a great safety and a great honesty.

Immediately, I the heart of the soul, pondered: how long would the enimty with’x’ hold out and take its toll?  Understanding in an instant the karmic bondage I had created, I found the love and the courage to invite this soul into connection.

More honest questions came to the surface:  How can I resonate authentically with other powerful women of voice, as well as with the authentic voice within?

Go deeper” said the wind, rustling through the street.  The sense of hearing opened deeply, as I, the soul eagerly awaited the wind’s full message.

Give some time to your Self, every day, as you land back here on Kauai.  Speak through silence to all those who cannot be reached by words.  Share energy and resonance with those who long to be filled.  Listen to the voices that ring out their song, knowing to be heard is their birthright.  Allow sleep to repair the fabric of your heart and clean away the rusted fragments left by inner turmoil! 

Before Council, I had felt stale, bored, as if I had subjected myself to living out a cookie cutter existence, feeling controlled by the limitations of a fine toothed comb. More than just a change of perspective, I the Soul recognized the need for Total Awareness and Total Attention in order to let go of the tension that had been taking its toll for too long.  For time is precious and must not slip away in such a hypnotic state of being.

At last, a message from the soul was getting through:

Come into a total coherence of love…discount no one…not another, nor yourself. Let visions and dreams come out into the light of day.  Open a portal to tomorrow, from here to eternity is a total guarantee.  Ingest the essence of tomorrow’s sunrise today!

The cycle of self-realization was emerging.

Make it happen through the transparency of the Self’s own wishes, your aim and objective, crafting your today, here and now, to insure your tomorrow.

This ‘council’ of souls still nourishes each other, til today, with their powerful ponderings on what it means to be human.   As for me, nowadays,  council is  within, with the Constant Friend and Divine Companion, with  journals, and even with this keyboard which offers such intimacy with its black and white keys, allowing me to write swiftly as the winds of the soul’s wise intellect emerge.

Fortunately, destiny would have it no other way and now  I, the living soul, despite the obstacles imposed by the illusions and vices of Maya and her subtle, and not so subtle distractions, despite the storms of delusion, despite  the chaos and nonsense of what much of the 3-D world has to offer, I, the Soul recognize and respect My Self

Fast forwarding to RIGHT NOW~ I recognize the sweetest of concerns is to know and fulfill  the aim and objective of this most precious of times, in this most precious of lives.  Talking with myself, I ask: what does “full effort” look like, feel like, right now?What actions and thoughts will allow for the fullest expression of Love, Peace, and Truth to come about on a constant basis?

Back to the piece that emerged on that splendid night in late August:

Hearing the call of the voice of the heart, making music through the stars…a precious remembering of my own magical, magnificence previously merged within the memory of time ~ now energes wonders…

Almost sleeping now, this is the stuff of wakeful dreaming, watching my own transparency, touched by a jewel drop of color upon my brow, I am glistening in the rain (of knowledge) of yesterday, today, and tomorrow…the beginning, the middle, and the end…

Playing between time, in that place in the heart which  knows all parts of the Self… the fragrance of the petals of an ever blooming rose as well as the thorns that have often pricked.

Silent is this knowing.  

Such joy lies behind these eyes…such wonderment!

 

How Honest is Your Love?

“>I am very taken not only by Dadi Janki’s words of wisdom, but even more so by her very presence. I know I am not alone in this unabashed feeling of her awesomeness. > Another admirer, Ruby Wax has made this statement about this 99 year old phenomenon: “this woman is as deep , wise, and egoless as it gets. >She adheres to no formal religion, dogma, or sect.  Merely teaches you a method to open the heart and detach the mind-which to me is what true spirituality is about”.

And now to explore some of Dadi’s words to live by:

>Love is connected to virtues.  Virtues create love both within the self and within others. When virtues reduce, the quality of love also reduces.

>When all virtues are present, there is complete and pure love.  Out of all the virtues, the main one is honesty.  If we feel someone is not being honest with us, our love breaks. Whether it’s our mother, father, husband, wife, or friend, if we feel that they are being dishonest,  ove breaks. In terms of our relationship with God, if we are honest with God we will draw His love.If we are not, that love will break.  Even if we have no other virtues than this one of honesty,  we will be able to draw God’s love.

The first kind of honesty is honesty with myself.  If I am honest with myself, there need be no situation in which I am not honest with others.

If someone does not believe me, if someone distrusts my honesty, perhaps it is a sign that I need to become more honest. Instead of blaming them, I should realise this, and look at how to become more honest.” Honesty does not mean simply speaking our mind. Honesty means to be very clear about everything going on inside us.  Where there is honesty, feelings become pure and clean. Honesty is where there are no other thoughts or feelings inside, other than those that God Himself would have,  Such clarity is reflected in our words; they will be filled with the power of truth and spoken with ease and without hesitation.  The genuine honesty cultivated within us is what will reach out and touch others.

Being easily influenced by people will diminish our ability to remain honest.  Others will not be able to get that feeling of truth from us, and our interactions will not carry a feeling of love.  They will seem superficial. Although superficial love is better than no love at all-at least it ensures that we don’t become completely dry-it will nonetheless be obvious that it is not the real thing.

Jewel of Eternal Peace and Beauty~A Short Meditation~

I turn my attention inwards, I visualize myself as a being of Light, I am that point of eternal light in the center of the forehead. I see my own original state; in my original state, there is Truth, there is Beauty, there is Purity, and there is Love, and in this awareness in the Presence of the Supreme, my own inner strength grows.
I can feel the Light of the Soul becoming brighter, shining, radiant. In this awareness, I look out into the world and see the shining stars, the eternal lights, I see the souls and I send out Rays of Peace and Love.

Coming back into my physical surroundings, I keep this consciousness so that it influences my communication with all others.

BEING WITH ONE

What an incredible evening it was last night as seventy-five souls gathered on Kauai for the purpose of BEING WITH ONE. We were accompanied by the celestial sounds of harp, sitar, angelic vocals, and crystal bowls, as we were guided back to our original home beyond this earth, to a place one can only go after letting go of the body and traveling as a soul, a being of light. We were guided by the gentle, loving voice of Brother Michael as he encouraged us souls to fly like birds through the stars, past the physical sun and moon of this world to enter a beautiful golden red dimension where we basked in the Love of the ONE~ Our next blissful event will be on Sunday, September 21st on the North Shore; call Shivalaya @ 639-9436 to reserve your spot, as we take the journey Home and share the Light and Love we find there with the earth.
