“When Hearts Open, Love Always Flows.” ~ Soul Mysteries
As Above So Below
So dear soul you’ve arrived:- at this opening page of a life journey so poorly articulated for it is both impossible and laughable to attempt to articulate the journey of soul through english oral or written language. For the journey of soul is a vibration, is energy, is light, is love. Still this crude attempt has been created for caterpillars seeking the butterfly within. It’s purpose? To hopefully empower the cognoscenti on their journey to understand and accept that true divinity rests within. With the top menu of this blog covering the breadth of exploration of one current sacred journey. And the posts covering key life experiences within that journey all layered with the mystical nuances of that sacred journey. Insights from experience, acquired through the lessons of a deep inner call. An alchemistic journey that changes all things forever. For it is indeed a journey and process that transforms all willing caterpillars into truly liberated butterfly’s the sum of which changes all understandings, for; the way of the soul is to witness miracles unfolding in all moments, daily.
That said; my sacred journey of soul commenced at a very young age as my search for safety ensured that I evolved in the presence of great divinity. Through which I became aware of the art of self mastery. Indeed an early life journey that consolidated the deep knowing within me that all life is the living expression of God in prayer and must be loved. Therein my life is a prayer for; all are my brothers and sisters, all are my sons and daughters and all are loved and empowered in equal measure to be all that they can be. That position often confuses some for when I talk about my father, mother, son, daughter, brother and sister it’s hard for them to detach from their family connections and my love of all, so they often think I’m talking about my birth family. But the truth is we are all aspects of the infinite imprisoned by separations illusion. If it were not so we all would see that everyone is a reflection of ourself no matter the life situations. Therein my passion and journey is and has always been to open hearts, to open minds, to connect with soul and to express kindness always no matter how life situations may be. For through such inclinations we all of us align with incredible souls daily. Some doing incredible work and serving from their hearts e.g. Dexter and Alessandrina and Jason Gallant et al, and some just about coping. All great souls either experiencing or serving through graceful and grace-filled authenticity, for that is the sacred journey that all souls must make. In truth a simpler a way of being for; I will to have an open heart, an open mind and to be kind to myself and all my brothers, sisters, sons and daughters, whilst working through all my limitations. Therein; where I’m able, I serve my sisters, brothers, sons and daughters through prayer, through experiential stories, through allegory and often times by simply holding the space. An innate desire to serve and to love God unreservedly. To be present despite my many flaws, for; yes the journey has been hard and I’ve made many mistakes. Still I serve and remain committed to the infinite potential that is the rite of passage for every soul. For God is not some old man with a white beard sitting on a cloud upon high. For God is the divine pulse of love. Therein I live in prayer daily to bring that infinite love into the present for my own sacred journey of soul, for all who seek, all who mourn and for all who know not that they are love and loved.
Important point:- prayer in the context of living in prayer and serving through prayer is not the reciting of words learned through religious inculcations and beliefs. It is entering into mystical union through the vibration of love and so it is in no way to be confused with the spoken word used in forms of ceremonial or religious rituals. For prayer is love and I love God, for God in and through soul is infinite love expressing. Indeed a mystical union synergised through the love of the Holy Spirit. Now in a world where “God” and the “Word of God” has been hijacked by that and those who refuse to know or be with God and who corrupt for control and self gain. It can be most challenging to proclaim the glory of God to others. Still worry not for so long as God is your very being and your heart beats are love. All will be so, all will be well, no matter what burdens your temporal “I” has to carry, for love is eternal. Now if you’re still struggling with this state of being I’d highly recommend that you listen to Andrea Bocelli, Céline Dion – The Prayer many times. For in its vibrational eloquence and lyrical totality you too will come to know that when the me-me of the ego falls away, life does indeed become a prayer. Albeit we continue to work through our egocic patterns, for inner works are essential.
In closing I state my position openly; “saint I am not, infinite soul I am, experiencing life through egoic mortality. Indeed a limited state through which I’ve lied, hated, caused harm, sort to destroy myself, served falsity intensely and made many mistakes and continue to make mistakes daily as all mortals do. That is the way of the sacred journey of soul, the journey through detritus in search of our divinity within. Indeed a painful process of letting go of shame, of guilt, of anger and of pride etc, which the ego thrives upon and which it uses to destroy peace. It’s not easy, far from it but there is a point of crisis on this journey when one wearies of all the lies one has told oneself and the world, indeed one wearies of egoic self harm. But that is not a journey of hatred and self loathing, that is a journey of compassion seeking to dissolve one’s unholy relationship with one’s ego through seeking the holy relationship with one’s true divinity. A point when all falsity must fall away and the infinite rises like a phoenix. Indeed that point of absolute surrender to the grace of God. So see me for what I am, your egoic mortal brother who like you is an infinite soul, working through his egoic illusions back to reality and the loving truth of God.”
For the record a silver beard does not make anyone a guru, least of all myself. But you do know that if you journey deep within you will find your inner guru patiently waiting to guide you and all you have to do is ask. Alternatively perhaps consider observing and listening more and talking less. Indeed take the time to sit with those who appear to having nothing, no hope and who sit on the fringe of society. For many of those souls who appear lost in addiction etc, are of far greater soul evolution than most seekers et al., for heavens I’ve stumbled grotesquely throughout my journey such is my karmic unfoldings. Yet; frequently have I been spell bound in awe of the wisdom and humility of many who have graciously accommodated me in wretched abodes. Including those who are dealing with or have come to terms with life situations that would have certainly crushed me. Therein and for their divinity, their humour, humility and faith, I am most grateful, bless you.
”The truth is; God is love, the ego is insane and all souls are eternal, om shanti, shanti, shanti om.” – Soul Mysteries
“Only the strongest of souls can bring light into darkness, wisdom into lacking and love to replace hate, for they have mastered the lesson of mortal suffering and have risen to the challenge of service.” ~ Soul Mysteries
“There is no God, but God” ~ Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him
”Seek the light, trust the light, be the light and ask the light to always be with you” ~ Soul Mysteries
“Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.” ~ Baha’u’llah. That is the true and sacred journey of soul, where love is always, for love is the eternal call of soul.
