Guidance

The kind presence that is my Guide waits upon THE moment when I may pierce the depths of simple truth, so carefully offered, and clamber upon a strand of dawning light to quench this thirst at last.

From baby to child, from boy to GENTLE man, I have been helped along my way. With every book I have read, with every word I have heard, with every exchange that has touched the SONG of my Soul, the presence of love has witnessed me gaining firmer ground.

Yes, I am helped to unwrap the tale of life, as a flower into sunlight, as a prayer into a pure heart, this knowledge glows within like a sleeping coal to be ushered into flame along pathways of the ordinary and threads OF the profound. My Guide is ambitious for me. He knows that I will succeed through the moments that cradle my earthly life. I draw upon this presence in the sure joy of belonging, sharing life with the very breath of his Soul, being prepared for wiser innocence where in hope I may accept the final radiance of LOVE.

The Leap

Imagine this: When in moments of Love when we are able to lift out of ourselves, think of how one day the body will fall away, just as the chrysalis or the seashell releases its hold on the life placed within it. We have become so used to the idea of our human self, so used to its body, appearance, language, and expectation that we have placed our entirety into it. But one day, we will know these things are not truly ours; that they must be returned to the sole sovereignty of Earth.

Could it be that all things in nature have an interior presence, returning to this life and that in order to animate a form and thereby learn of Love? Does not each of us know secretly within that deep Love and its awareness cannot die, but only adapt and turn along a spiral of longing?

What a relief it must be to breathe in the perfumed rays of light after the heaviness of Earth. There! What an extraordinary thought, that we, you and I, infinitesimal persons in the vastness of space, have a life beyond, one that is before and after this worldly place.

Let us take a leap of mind and know that we are but visitors here, like divers who put on a suit to walk upon the bed of the ocean, to rise to the surface when the work is complete and the lesson learned. It is not outside that we will discover from where we have come and where we are going, but from behind closed eyes and within an open heart.

Let us understand then that all we take with us when we leave this place is whatever depth of Love we have claimed as our own. Everything else passes away, and how real can something be if it does not last?
