Ego and Misery

Beloveds---

When Ego did not trust the Creator's Love, he found himself lost in perpetual storms of wrong words, actions and  disappointment.  It seemed like for eons,  Ego forbade the Heart from experiencing joy and joined with Misery to create dis-order and hate throughout the World. 

Some humans enslaved others who looked differently.  They stole the precious resources and treasured legacies and fought religious wars to maintain control.  For a time it appeared that this was to become the sad destiny of Earth. 

 And the Great Mother Cried.  Her tears moved hearts of a few who then felt the undercurrent of the Creator's Love.  And the few Awakened from the horrible nightmare created by Ego and Misery.

They began to Breathe Deeply and see Beauty in the Stars, in the Moon and Sun. They began to marvel at the birds song, the lives of animals and fish, and the rhythm of the winds and oceans.  They learned the history of Earth-Heart  through the rocks and stones.  They discovered the oxygen of Love and studied the wisdom of trees.  Plant life offered food and healing. 

With Each Breathe they took in Love,  they grew braver, and many more re-membered the Great Mother and Awakened in Love.  YOU are one of the many born to honor the Creator and Rise in understanding and compassion through the Great Mother.

 Breathe Deeply 10 Times.  Breathe In Truth.  Know there is only Love.  Exhale the Nightmare Created by Ego and Misery.  Now that you have Awakened,  allow Divine Grace to lead your Heart.  Listen to song of your Soul.  It is the Creator's Song of Love. 

Again, Ten Times Breathe In Love.  Exhale Love.  There is no turning back.  The only way to heal and live and prosper on Earth-Heart is to  Stay Awake and Trust Only Love!

Live the Questions!


Beloveds,

I  Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times and offer my gratitude and appreciation for the mystery of this  New Day.

I am grateful for the courage to explore the questions tugging my  heart; asking for attention.

Again, I Breathe Deeply, and ask for Strong Resolve  to patiently live the questions.

I listen deeply to my heart, and the  hearts of all those around me.  I ask for humility and clear vision so that I  listen and act only with respect.

Today, with a courageous strong resolve, I will honor the wisdom of my heart and live the questions with care and compassion.

Every answer I desire can be  revealed through my Loving Actions.

I Breathe Deeply, and Embracing the Mystery  of the New Day--- I Say Thank You!

When Will Freedom Come: Remembering the Civil Rights Foot Soldiers As Dreamers

There is perhaps no greater gift to society than the Dreamer.
For it is the Dreamer who believes
that Good Change is possible.

It is the Dreamer that looks upon a society's inequities
and desires a better life for themselves, their families,
their neighbors and their Nation.
...
It is the Dreamer who having awakened to the Truth
that ALL people are created Equal
asks How Will Freedom Come?

On August 28th in 1963, A. Phillip Randolph,
Bayard Rustin, Mahalia Jackson, John Lewis, Peter,
Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan, Julian Bond, Odetta,
Jackie Robinson, James Baldwin, Marlon Brando,
Joan Baez, Paul Newman, Harry Belafonte,
Eleanor Holmes Norton, Andrew Young, Marian Anderson,
Sammy Davis Jr., Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Malcolm X,
Diahann Carroll, Burt Lancaster, Dr. Benjamin Mays,
Roy Wilkins, Dorothy Height, Whitney Young,
and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. were all in attendance
with 250 thousand Dreamers from across America
who gathered in Our Nation's Capitol
to rally for jobs, the right to vote,
desegregation and equality.

Some of these Dreamers had been working
in their communities, cities and states
for many generations to bring about Good Change.

They knew that just attending the March on Washington
was an act of rebellion
but more importantly,
it was an Act of Faith that could bring Change
and Hope for their Children.

They were people of all nationalities,
religious beliefs and colors.
They were clergy, union members, mechanics,
postal workers, railroad workers, pullman porters,
butlers, maids, police officers, doctors
nurses, educators, college students
and people from every occupation imaginable.

There were grandparents and mothers
and fathers who brought their children.
All believed that this country
could only live its greatness when Equality
and Equal Opportunity became the Law of the Land.

It was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who spoke
and articulated the Dream that had been swelling
in the hearts of many for generations and generations.

We know these 250,000 Dreamers as the Civil Rights Foot Soldiers.
Though we may not know their names,
today Fifty Years later, we honor the Civil Rights Foot Soldiers
their lives, their hopes and their Dreams.

And Fifty Years later, the message of equality, equity,
education, fair employment, Hope and Love
continues to deserve our attention;
for the work of the Dreamers and Civil Rights Foot Soldiers
is Far From Complete.

Freedom will come only when we
are willing to put down our guns,
open our hearts and listen deeply to Truth.

Freedom will come only when we
Rise Up Together
and decide to fix the broken
Political, Economic, Educational
and Social Systems of Inequity.

But Freedom Will Come!

As we remember The Civil Foot Rights Foot Soldiers,
in Our Hearts, we must continue to walk
across the Nation with Hope and Strong Resolve.
Then we will hear and sing the songs that mourn the loss
of Every Child of Violence and War and Racism and Poverty.
We will call for Peace and sing of Love.

Freedom will come when we truly
Desire Equity, Education
and Prosperity For ALL.

Freedom will come when we willingly
sit at the table together in Gratitude
and share our dreams, our food, our homes,
our education and our wealth.

Freedom will come only when we
once again notice
that Trees bend in reverence
as Spring, Summer and Autumn Leaves
dance joyfully and teach Our Children
that All Humans deserve to be cared for and Loved!

Freedom will come as we Re-Member
that for All Our Children we must
offer Hope for their Dreams
and be willing to share Our Love.

Breathe Deeply
In Hope. Out Love.
Again Breathe.
In Hope. Out Love.

How will you honor the Dreamer Civil Rights Foot Soldiers?
Do you remember the Dream?
What will you do today and tomorrow?
How will Freedom come with Love
and decide to Live in Our Hearts
and Our Nation?

First Breathe. In Hope. Out Love!
We must once again commit to gather
in our communities, cities and states.

Remembering that ALL Are Created Equally,
let us sit at the table together in Gratitude
and share our Dreams, our food, our homes,
our education and our wealth.

It is then for the Dreamer, that Freedom Will Come!

You are a Hierophant, a Bringer of Light!

Beloveds---

 Breathe Deeply Five Times.
Inhale Humility and Joy.
Exhale the Grace of Love.

Breathe.
You are a Hierophant, a Bringer of Light!

As Hierophants we are all teachers, and students. ...

Living, learning, sharing, and loving.
This is our path, a return to LOVE.

Again, Breathe Deeply Five Times.
Inhale Humility and Joy.
Exhale the Grace of Love.

Breathe.

People would have us believe that
we should not focus on the heart.
The truth is we can NOT develop
and travel into the new realms
purely in our minds.

The heart always has the right answers.
And Truth is all there is.
For In Truth we experience Divine LOVE.

Breathe.

Right now let us feel Joy's embrace
as particles of LOVE run through
the very cells of our body!

You Are a Hierophant, a Bringer of Light!

Breathe!
Inhale Humility and Joy.
Exhale the Grace of Love.

Your Ever Vigilant Heart!

Beloveds--

I Breathe Deeply Ten Times.  Today I cannot find that space of empty in my mind.  Instead, I embrace every thought. 

I Breathe....For Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan who saved countless lives but died of Ebola in Sierra Leone, and All those who have lost their lives due to violence and unnecessary wars or illness and suffering, I Offer Prayers of Love and Healing for their Families and Communities.

I Breathe... In my heart are awakening cries of anger, despair and disappointment mixed with Compassion, Hope, Mercy and Love.  These are the emotions vibrating throughout the World. 

Humanity is Awakening but our addiction to fear, greed and hate has taken center stage.  We must remember that Hate Breeds Hate. Hate is never a Cure. No matter how difficult or how long it may take---Only Forgiveness, Love, Respect and Understanding with Compassion and Mercy Offer Us Any Opportunity to Live Together In Peace with Equity.

Across the United States and the World, We Are Moving In Violent Directions and Causing Despair to Many. The  Schisms of Class, Fear, Greed, Power, Race, and Religion are at the Forefront of the Regional and Global Conversations. I Remember that violence and war only break hearts and create More Cycles of Violence and War.

Again,  I Breathe Deeply Ten Times.  In Patience, Forgiveness and Love.  Out Patience, Forgiveness and Love. In Patience, Forgiveness and Love.  Out Patience, Forgiveness and Love.

It will take Many Strong Voices and Vigilant Hearts to Choose to Empower Our World through Good Actions of Kindness and Love.   It is Our Responsibility to Keep Raising Our Voices In Love!

Thank YOU for Your Ever Vigilant Heart!
 

Honoring Life's Details

Beloveds--

 What a Beautiful Day to be Alive!

I still myself, open my heart and Breathe and Exhale Four Times.

They say that success comes from the ability to honor the details of our lives.

I Breathe Deeply in Gratitude Four Times. With Each Breath, I Breathe Out Joy and Gratitude. 

I pay attention with care to myself and honor every detail of my life. This frees me to offer more care and concern to others.

As I step forward into the Beautiful New Day, I Breathe Deeply and offer my Gratitude and JOY for Honoring Life's Details and making room for the Privilege of Service!
