Walk As a Prayer…

10609699_10152243038775598_8720026987384865063_n

Let us make the pact of journey…

To be who we are regardless of circumstance.
To care regardless of cost.
To give even when we have nothing left.
To love in the face of storms.
To listen even when we dont have time.
To forgive, and live again.
To live in the face of death.
To talk about things that matter.
To stand against all odds.

To touch, for love demands.

c8a943df6c5b0bfcbcda67cc157291c7


And to walk as prayer,
For our lives are sacred.
To thank each other,

For we have nothing more, or less.
To kiss, to hold hands,
To shout, and to whisper.
To name distance as nearness,
To be true to our hearts.

Waiting…

025fe93106050eeca656c44fd2b8f341

We live countless lives
On a journey that seems unending…
Yet our destination is no further
Than our hearts!
Eric

TODAY: Oh what a glorious bright morning it was today….yet as the day progressed, it become dense and cloudy…with light splashes of rain. A sure sign that cooler days – for snuggling, hibernating and introspection are almost upon us…

IN ONE WORD: Destiny

COLOUR OF THE DAY: White

HOW I FEEL: I have had a few deeply introspective days…I feel slightly fragile in my heart, yet very alert…I have had this constant feeling that I am waiting….Lucid dreams show that I am at a remote countryside Train Station, staring out at gently undulating  green countryside, peacefully waiting…

Foresthouse

“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere.

We can’t always understand them, but we have to trust in them.

I know you want to question everything,

but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 


Lauren Kate, Torment

INSIGHTS: In the last months, it has become clear that we are walking through that mysterious door, and beginning to cross a bridge into the unknown world of which we have yet to create. We have had to re-think so much about what we knew to be true, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Part of doing something is listening.

We are listening.

To the sun.

To the stars.

To the wind.” 


Madeleine L’Engle

We need to accept that we are in fact partners for life with the planet and when we walk in balance, we can see very clearly that our natural world teaches us how to do life in a positive way, for the greater good of Mother Earth and all Beings.

AFFIRMATION: “Please forgive me, I love you….Thank you”

d81c867170a4ea6eaed7687691f9109f

The silence was enchanting.

Infinite space seemed to enter it,

and my spirit,

alone with the stars,

seemed capable of any adventure.

W. Somerset Maughan

I Wonder Where Life Is Leading Me….

10299183_10203264875800917_2500817049809839451_n

Breathe in the Earth, the trees, the flowers…
Breathe in the plants, the minerals, the animals…
Breathe in the ocean, the lakes, the streams…
Breathe in the air, the sky, the clouds…
Breathe in the sun, the moon, the stars…
Remind yourself – “I am this”
~ Tutte Peever ~

DAY: Overcast, ominous, mild, waiting

WORD: Humbled

COLOUR: Red

FEELING: Waiting with a sense of expectancy. There is a stillness around me, a pause. Focusing more diligently on the highest view, the broader picture, the more compassionate and heartfelt understanding.

BODY: Gentle

THE COLLECTIVE: “I am afraid too, like all my fellow men, of the future too heavy with mystery and too wholly new, towards which Time is driving me…
Then like these men, I wonder where life is leading me.”
Mass on the World – Pierre de Chardin

INSIGHTS: If even now we do not trust what we have ‘requested’ and created, then we need to look back from where we have come and see how supported we have always been…And that all we desire is beginning to seep into our life.
Let us hold that vision and move forward with trust and love…

Prayer is our humble answer
to the inconceivable surprise of living.
It is all we can offer in return
for the mystery by which we live.

Did you ever stop to notice…

EARTH:POLAR BEAR_n

“Earth Song”

Michael Jackson

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain…
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine…
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth, this weeping shore?

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

What have we’ve done to the world
Look what we’ve done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son…
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine…
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth, this weeping shore?

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don’t know where we are
Although I know we’ve drifted far

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh
Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can’t even breathe
(What about us)
What about apathy
(What about us)
I need you
(What about us)
What about nature’s worth
(ooo, ooo)
It’s our planet’s womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
Turned kingdoms to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost their trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
Ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
Torn apart by creed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
Can’t we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
Can’t you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about baby boy
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
What about the man
(What about us)
What about the crying man
(What about us)
What about Abraham
(What about us)
What about death again
(ooo, ooo)
Do we give a damn

Aaaaaaaaah Oooooooooh

Opening New Doors…

1379592_202786759903848_9167296_n

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again

and all shadows are chased away…”

TODAY: Dense cloud with a heavy feel to this new day. Autumn is showing herself…A fine sprinkling of soft rain is settling on the leaves and flowers…It looks almost like a fairy garden…I greet this day with anticipation.

ONE WORD: Challenged

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Opal

HOW I FEEL: After a very challenging time on my new computer plus the ever changing and shifting energies…I have simplified my thoughts, lifted my spirit and as of today I am beginning to settle.

INSIGHTS: ‘We are asking that you do not become reactive. Quite the contrary, we wish for you to show openly that with LOVE in your Hearts, great and lasting change can and will be achieved.’

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘As time begins to move in a less and less linear way, your bodies will need more rest to adjust and recalibrate…The ideal system for all is what you now call the ‘siesta.’ As your body moves faster into the new way of being, this rest period will become critical to many humans.’

“Every Being on Earth stands somewhere on the slope that rises from the shadow towards the Light…” Teilhard de Chardin

‘Take greater care of your homes, make it more of a ‘haven’ for your peace and comfort. Do not do unnecessary travel, remain in your very own micro universe.
Know your neighbours, keep your friends close. Be selective and become accustomed to the feelings within you, of who exactly is part of your soul family and resonates with your path…’

AFFIRMATION: “I AM divinely guided and loved always…”

“For every door that closes, there is another that opens.”
This is the door you have been looking for…
but you could not hope to find it while
you were locked behind the first one.
Neale Walsch

Viewing the World With New Eyes…

BLOG:4:12

There are a special few times


In our lives when we pass by each other,


When trees dance, and rain falls upward,


When the ocean calls as if it remembers


Our names,


When the moon is poured out like whiskey,


And coyotes gather in total silence…


When time for an instant stops,


And the rocks beneath our feet share secrets.


These are the moments of true kinship,


That small minds call eternity!


Eric

TODAY: Dark and low mysterious cloud formations. A slow, cool morning, my world taking its time to wake from its nightly slumber here…Light rain through the night. Autumnal feel is in the air…It feels calm and clement today…

IN ONE WORD: Faith

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Platinum

HOW I FEEL: I have experienced quite a challenging time with a new computer. Today I am back on my old iMac and feel way more comfortable. I have persevered for days, but have still not managed to become comfortable or technically compatible with the new MacBook Air…Today I woke finally admitting my disappointment at my new ‘baby’…Yes, perhaps I will overcome this feeling in the next week or month, but for now, that’s where I find myself. For that reason I have done little writing in the past week. I long to get back into the flow of my usual energy.

BODY: A need for long hours of sleep, many vivid dreams, integrating new energies(?), many thoughts and insights…

BLOG:8:2:Nearspace2

INSIGHTS: The Earth and Sky need to be viewed with new eyes….vision needs to be expanded and opened. New learning and sharing must happen for the Earth to truly shift these powerful areas of the planet in accordance with the Universe and new new Gaia…The present ways currently understood and ‘worked’ are from the ‘old’ world.

From the cellular to the world itself, everything seems to many to be in chaos! Which we must try to understand – must be – before any real change can manifest. This is how we evolve. It will take time. Listen…wait…

THE COLLECTIVE: The love that Christ Consciousness and Mary bring and hold, will support hearts and souls as we move gently and bravely into what feels like a new almost unrecognisable world…allow your own inner wisdom to move you in which ever direction feels right for you…there are no mistakes, there is only love.
Many still feel the need to move out of cities and large towns. Cities feel fast, overly busy, frantic, out of harmony and crowded.

AFFIRMATION: “Everything happens in perfect time for my own evolution…”

5db43d6d9fcb7cabc621c92ad313cbe7

God…was in the food they ate,

in the water they drank,

in the air they breathed,

in the Earth they trod on and died on,

in the words they spoke,

in the sleep they slept and the dreams they dreamt,

in the everywhere and the everything…

Unpredictable Waves of Feeling…

kailash-in-colour-jpg

“She is more than she appears…as all Mountains are…”

DAY: I woke at 4am to steady rain, it felt much cooler than expected. Heavy rain is falling as I write…The day dawned quietly. There was a deeply mellow feel to it…Yet, I was cold. Hot tea was what I needed!

WORD: Prayer…Mt. Kailash has been with me since last night…I woke seeing it in my minds eye…I felt a deep connection, an opening…a need for reverence, stillness and prayer.

COLOUR: Magenta

FEELING: Gentle – silent thoughts, observing, feeling, knowing…

blog:10:12_n

“Our feelings and emotions are like the tides of the ocean –
never constant, but
ever-changing and as unpredictable as waves.”

THE COLLECTIVE: Sensitive to change – seeking comfort – Keep safe and stay connected to those you trust and resonate with. Be alert to changes in you and around you. Accept that many are unaware of these changes and may be confused, unsettled even in crisis. Allow this to be, while you focus on taking care of self.

INSIGHTS: Deeper communication and inner change is needed to inspire greater vision.
Look to your wisdom and live from your heart. Nurture yourself hour by hour. Changes will occur more and more rapidly through this final part of 2014.
