The inspiration for this piece came to me during one of the storms of life. The day is cold and rainy, the sun is hiding, and the Oracle of the day is Death. Yet still I heard the words of the Bodhisattva.
Today is Day 5 of the Wavespell of the Blue Storm. Within the Storm are 13 days of cataclysmic change, drama, upheaval. And here I find myself, standing firm in The Eye.
The eye of the hurricane–is it The Great Eye of God? Is His vision fixed on each of us, as we await the final passing of a calamitous event? To pass indicates Death. What is leaving us, and what will remain? As I am the Blue Cosmic Night, the power of endurance is my birthright.
Today, on Day 5, I call upon the blessings of empowerment, intuition, magic, abundance, and radiance. All of those powers swirl around me–I need only reach out and touch that which will carry me through. Inside the vortex of my own essence, I am keenly aware of the storm raging without.
Now comes to me the message of Shantideva: “As when a flash of lightning rends the night, And in its glare shows all the dark black clouds had hid…”.
I have seen the flash. I have stood in the howling cyclone, and stumbled through the dark forest. I have been lost on the sea, with blackness all around. And I have hidden myself deep in the earth, shivering with fear and despair. Yet still there comes the flash. The flash is the way out, and it is the holiest of signs and wonders. God is there, lighting The Way.
“His lightnings enlightened the world:the earth saw, and trembled.”. Psalm 97:4
That place where the lightning strikes is forever transformed, often destroyed. The chemistry and the composition are created anew. It is in this way that the lightning changes each of us. By seeing the flash, we now know what is out there. Do we understand, are we in gratitude, and do we now see The Way? Has the lightning become our guide? Or do we remain fixed and frozen, in the paralysis of dread and confusion? Perhaps, within our fear of the strike, we have actually called it to us, over and over again in a cycle of samsara. We know the electric energy is out there: hovering, waiting, gathering power and momentum. There is a potential that the lightning becomes the lightening. Seizing that opportunity is for the most courageous among us. What will you do?
Today is Day 5, the Overtone. We have arrived at the pillar, the corner of the wall, a moment within which we must change direction. Our path is illuminated throughout this storm, by the flashes of lightning.
In 8 days time we will fly, on the Cosmic wings of the ever-playful Blue Monkey, upon the power of 13th tone, at the gate of the Wavespell. The Monkey will indicate the lightness of your enlightenment journey through tricks and laughter. The complexity of all creation is transformed through a vision of simplicity. This interesting creature—the Monkey—demonstrates this paradoxical principle. And what’s more is that Monkey exposes our impatience, our anger, our humor, and our love for the inner child within each of us. The Monkey, much like the lightning, shows us a flash of curiosity, and magic. Will you follow the Monkey? Will it lead you to the next cycle, or will you be led astray–back to the dark ocean, or the coldness of the underground? The Monkey is tricky and may fool you. But to know the Monkey in a different way is for the truly innocent ones among us. Day 13 is coming: take flight and see all opportunities. The choice is yours.
The inspiration for this piece came to me after a day in Salem, Massachusetts. It was Mabon, with its beautiful energy of change. As I walked the streets, I heard cries from the past, askingto be known.
This short meditation is for healing ancestral trauma: persecution, and memories of others who were persecuted–all falsely accused, tortured, imprisoned, and executed for witchcraft.
Healing happens through integration. We are integrating our feelings, our passions, visions, dreams and accomplishments, our regrets, trauma, and our grief. Here’s a magic spell.
Close your eyes, focus, and follow these steps.
Open your grimoire, which lies waiting for you within the records of your soul. Your DNA is your book of spells, and only you can open it.
Your heart is a cauldron – fill it with whatever intentions you desire. Add a pinch of salt, from your tears, and a dash of laughter. Stir in some fruit, to represent all of creation as it emerges from the body, heart, mind, and soul of the Divine Feminine. Next, a measure of power, and seeds of joy, and bones of the past.
Add the heat – Love is the fire of your soul–the flames that do not consume, the fuel for the alchemy. We cook, and we stir the cauldron. The vessel is full, and we stir. We stir, and we pray. We bless, we curse, we feel, we heal, and we remember. The crucible is full of the dreams, and the work, and the sorrow, and the bliss of each of us and those of our ancestors as well. All things are in the vessel. And we cook, and we stir.
We speak the incantation-the intention, the crying out to the great Source, the calling forth our ancient ones, who hold us in their loving souls even today. Invoke them, feel them surround you with loving and compassionate energy. Our women are not lost, they are transformed, created anew in each of us. You are witnessing the alchemy at this very moment—the fire, the crucible and the power. Speak to your loved ones, and as you do so you speak to yourself. Hear these words and speak: “I see you…I feel you…I know you…I love you…”
Hold your loved ones in a holy embrace, and as you do so you hold yourself. Kiss them, cry with them , grieve for now, and integrate them into the very cells of your DNA. You are one, you are whole.
Now get your broom and sweep. All energy must move, transform, and be refreshed. Sweep. Sweep in the integration, center yourself as you sweep, and sweep out the pain from the past—both of this life and before. Open the door and let the light in, and sweep out all stagnant and dark energies that keep you bound.

The inspiration for this piece came to me while I was submerged in water. A flood of ideas and messages washed over me. I created a healing ritual, while in the water. This was dedicated to my father, but is offered here to anyone who has an imbalance with water. This is a critical element. Feel free to contact me, or leave a reply if you want to talk about how to apply this piece to your life. This is not intended as a methodology to replace medical care–rather it is a loving prayer for your wellness.
To my father, Robert P. Currie
Our family is drawn to the sea. We settled in a coastal state. Our ancestors lived in seaside regions of Europe, very close to the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. My father has taught us to love water as play—the games and sports he taught his young family included swimming, lifeguarding, boating, and enjoying sailboat races. At one point, my father’s business was one of building seafaring vessels. But another point of interest is that we live in Massachusetts, a state that has been developed by filling in acres upon acres of marshland. What a tremendous impact that activity has had on the region. It most assuredly has devastated an ecosystem that was home to millions of species of plant and animal life. Additionally, Boston Harbor and the river Charles became so abominably polluted, massive cleanup efforts were required to reverse some of that mess. In nearby Woburn, Massachusetts, many children were diagnosed with childhood cancers and leukemia, caused by polluted groundwater from local factories. There is too much history to go into during this short piece, but we must continue to wonder. How has our relationship with water contributed to our health and welfare? The answer may seem obvious, but only at the macro level. How deeply do we look, and where do we find, within the ecosystem of our own bodies and minds, a relationship with water that has become toxic?
Water is more than two-thirds of our body composition. Without it, we die. Yet water can be dangerous. The power of an unhealthy relationship with water can lead to ailments or death through the transmission of diseases, drowning, dehydration, pneumonia, kidney stones, parasites, dangerous pathogens, and countless other effects including congestive heart failure. All are cases where the water has devastated the human. I used the word “devastated” in the previous paragraph, and I repeated it here for the purpose of illustrating the cycle, and the relationship.
Natural devastation from water occurs through flooding, and through drought. Nature has its own cycles and there is little that humankind can do to prevent them, nor should we. Yet the subject of climate change is highly divisive. Have we caused it? Or are we arrogant in our beliefs that we can actually alter the earth, and nature itself? Are we gods? Or have we contributed to these changes by reckless and disrespectful activities? Some say karma’s a bitch.
Now I turn inward, and the rest of this message comes to you from a pure channel. These words are inspired by the water elemental. I speak words of life:
I am Aquarius, I bear water as a gift. I awaited the alignment, on the day of my incarnation, in January. At the exact moment, I traveled with the speed of light, as a Neptune vessel, and my spirit animated the newly born.
According to ancient scripture, Aquarius is one who pours out. This is the prophecy of who I am: “He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted.” Numbers 24:7. Also said of me: “He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38
Know this: the unseen and esoteric properties of water are experienced only by faith and go beyond the limitations of science and logic. Water has memory and intelligence.
Water heals, cleanses, purifies, and restores. “For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.”John 5:4.
Water is a life source. “O Lord, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters.”Jeremiah 17:13.
Water has a taste, whether sweet or brackish. “Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?” James 3:11.
Rivers are the veins of the earth, carrying the holy blood to nourish all parts of our sacred garden. The rushing sound is both soothing and familiar to us, as it reverberates our own rivers flowing within. “And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.” Zechariah 14:8.
From the water we come, first within the womb of creation, floating in expectation, awaiting miraculous form. We are the water—both element and elemental, that which gives and sustains all life.
Tara, a Buddhist deity, is believed to protect from the dangers of water. The water is said to represent flooding. But this water also serves as a metaphor for lust. Therefor, my question is this: how is the condition of unhealthy attachment manifesting as a health problem connected to water? How does the flooding of a community translate to overall greed and lust for power that may reside there? I have many, many questions and very few answers. But in the asking, I continue my journey—one that I know has no end.
Now back to Tara. In honor of her great service to humanity as a Bodhisattva, let us meditate on her 21 emanations. Invoke the Tara using her powerful mantra Om TĀRE Tuttare TURE Soha. She will arrive at your side in an instant and stand with you to protect you and guide you to higher ground. Each day for 21 days, commit to a water healing practice. Begin with a small bowl of water nearby. Remember to hold gratitude for the water. Recite the mantra three times, then meditate or pray on the 21 items from the list below—one item each day in sequential order. You may feel drawn to ponder on these topics long after the day is over, or you may feel compelled to learn more. Why I chose these specific items is not important, rather their relationship to you is all you need to unveil. Drink the water after each session.
The 21 days of Water-Healing Prayers
And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Genesis 1:6
Flood of Genesis
The five ocean gyres
Parting of the Red Sea
Pacific Garbage Patch
St, Peter’s Well, Houstin, Scotland
Well of Jacob
John the Baptist
“which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.” Psalm 114
“This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.” 1 John 5:6
On the cross, Jesus reportedly cried out: “I thirst”. “After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.”John 19:28
Why did He say this? He knew He would die on that cross. Was He looking for comfort? Did He expect the water to ease His suffering? Perhaps the water would save Him? Or was He still on duty—teaching us and reinforcing His lessons to the very end? His statement flew in the face of an earlier declaration: “but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14
Was He not already filled with the mystical water of which He had spoken on that day?
Or was He reminding us that we must always be thirsty for God’s living water, and for God’s kingdom? As He spoke during the famous Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6. What was He really thirsty for?
The soldiers gave Him a sponge soaked in vinegar, but He would not drink it. Perhaps these answers are known to some, or perhaps this mystery is different for each of us. We can only truly understand by drinking in the gnosis that Is available to us. We can only be saved by crying out to God: “I thirst!”
In the end, we seek union with the One Source, and the water will take us there. “For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”Revelation 7:17.
What assignment are we on? Do we know the directive? Is the team focused on the goal?
All too often the instruction communicated from the top isn’t quite the same by the time it reaches the front line. Things can get lost in translation. It is enormously important that everyone on the team knows the direction. Consensus must be reached for execution to be successful. Leadership must be present at each level of the organization. And, when the mission is critical, there is no place for people who are not able to lead themselves. Good leaders are careful to have the right people in the right places. They must be trained, ready, and understand the vision. All employees of a company are representatives of their employer.
Get with the program! Keep the faith! Make us proud!
The inspiration for this piece came to me after awakening, the day after I had written Prayers of the Wheels. This series is devoted to designing a life according to prayer. The Holy Book is my prayer, for which I have been called as an Oracle.
In all directions is the One Source. We are centered in Eden, encompassed by immaculate creation- both seen and invisible to our eyes. From all sides come blessings and riches, and also comes danger. Turn always toward the season of God’s blessings, and stand strong when illusion is present. It will present as a great tempest. When this comes, keep your gaze fixed on the other side.
The powerful sun arises. It is illuminating. It is light. The day is coming. The terrors of the night are no longer. Throw open the windows of your soul and see the majesty of Eden. See, and feel, the brilliant rays of yellow and gold as they crown the splendor of all life. Yet the sun can scorch and burn like fire. And beware the bitterness of the wind that comes this way. Prepare yourself, be watchful, and pray.
The Prayer. “By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?” Job 38:24 KJVA
The Prayer. “Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh toward the east:” Ezekiel 43:1 KJVA
The Prayer. “And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.” Exodus 10:13 KJVA
The Prayer. “Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind hath broken thee in the midst of the seas.” Ezekiel 27:26 KJVA
The Prayer. “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:27 KJVA
The Queen of the South reigns over all. She brings to life the gifts of paradise. All flourish under her watchful spell. She knows all things and sets all things right. But beware her wrath, as that of the Dakini. She holds the seat of power. She rules with warmth and swiftness. She creates with nurturing gentleness. Yet she destroys with quakings and fire. She is Gaia and The Tara. She is the mother of form. None can live without her.
The Prayer. “Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.” Job 37:9 KJVA
The Prayer. “The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.” Ecclesiastes 1:6 KJVA
The Prayer. “And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward the south, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house.”Ezekiel 40:45 KJVA
The Prayer. “He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.” Psalm 78:26 KJVA
The Prayer. “The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.” Luke 11:31 KJVA
The world is aflame, even the sea. Darkness comes. What does it bring? For some it is respite, peace, and serenity. But for others, the torment of night releases the shadows within our souls. It is a time for evil, and a time for death. I watch as the light is fading. The day slips away, never to return. I reach out to grasp what remains, and it dissolves from my sight. I am alone, in darkness, and afraid.
The Prayer. “And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.” Luke 12:54 KJVA
Look to the North Star. Follow and see where it leads. There is where you will find the Messiah, the One of the prophecies. The Christ Consciousness calls as a voice from the heavens. This is The Light humanity seeks. Is He the star? As I follow, the star continues to elude me. As I continue, ice seeps into my bones. I trudge through dreary darkness. Yet I still cannot overtake the star. As I travel, I cross into lands I do not know. My soul is weary, my limbs are aching. Still is the star suspended there. It appears now as a glowing and golden crucifix. Surely He is there! But how far must I go? Will I ever reach it?
The Prayer. “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” John 6:35 KJVA
The Prayer. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 KJVA
The Prayer. “The noise of the thunder maketh the earth to tremble: so doth the northern storm and the whirlwind: as birds flying he scattereth the snow, and the falling down thereof is as the lighting of grasshoppers:” Ecclesiasticus 43:17 KJVA
“There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory.”1 Corinthians 15:41 KJVA
I have come full circle. I am encompassed by the great gurus. At the cardinals are The Four, and at the ordinals are the eagle, the ox, the lion, and Man. These remain wherever I go. To all corners of the earth and back, I see The Garden. I am home.
The Prayer. “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.” Psalm 75:6 KJVA
“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12 KJVA
The inspiration for this piece came to me upon awakening, the day after I had channeled Prayer of the Watches. In this time of global division, and during the season of Lent, we are each standing alone, to reconcile with ourselves. These are precious moments, and what I have been waiting and preparing for.
I am perfectly engineered. My city is built upon solid ground. My house is upon the rock. I am a fortified tower. The First Wheel balances, aligns, and supports. It spins a net of safety. All is secure within my red walls.
The Prayer. “And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;” Revelation 21:19 KJVA
God is the artist and master. He shows me great things, as I watch and learn. From within me will emerge creations of pristine beauty. The sounds, the colors, the tastes and textures of Mother Earth—all are woven into the tapestry of The Second Wheel. I am a masterpiece. Within the blackness of nothing is the ever-burning flame. My orange cauldron is a vessel for purest alchemy. All is transformed.
The Prayer. “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” Isaiah 45:7 KJVA
The Third Wheel is the star within. As the helios in our day sky, the sun within the crystal core is a sacred energy source. It is a brilliant repository of information for me to explore. There is where I find the great library, all science, and all empowerments from the One Source. My center shines with the brilliance of gold. I feel the warmth of the molten plasma. This is true power like no other.
The Prayer. “Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly.” Job 40:16 KJVA
The Prayer. “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” Proverbs 20:27 KJVA
The Prayer. “He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38 KJVA
Courage comes from the heart. My heart for God encourages me and commands me. I must be brave enough to love as He does love. I embody audacious compassion. With fortitudinous generosity, I give. I walk undaunted toward opportunities to serve. The temerity of my green heart is unstoppable. The Fourth Wheel spins with soft boldness, gentle strength, and fierce agape love.
The Prayer. “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Joshua 1:9 KJVA
The Prayer. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 KJVA
The Prayer. “For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.” 1 John 3:11 KJVA
The Prayer. “Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.” 1 John 3:21 KJVA
The sounds of the world are the voice of the Creator. My voice is a song for God. I cry out. He answers. He listens to my song, my music, and my prayers. I long to hear the heavenly hosts, and the songs of Hathor. He sends me signs, messages, dreams and visions, We communicate in an infinite number of ways. He has ordained me as His Oracle of Holy Scripture. Within The Fifth Wheel are the blue prayers of the universe.
The Prayer. “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Romans 8:26 KJVA
The Prayer. “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:13-14 KJVA
Vision like the eagle’s and the gift of insight—these are my spiritual tools. With them I discern, I unravel mysteries, and then do I speak prophecy. By day I witness humanity in its splendor and glory. In the dark of night, I close my eyes and travel into God’s universe, where I see all. Through an indigo haze, He shows me His miracles. The vista of The Sixth Wheel is endless.
The Prayer. “In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;” Job 33:15 KJVA
The Prayer. “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 KJVA
The Prayer. “Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.” Daniel 2:19 KJVA
I thirst for knowledge. Like two waterfalls, the purple energy comes pouring down into the corpus callosum. I am baptized with understanding. The epiphysis cerebri has been lit. Emotions emerge as waves on a restless sea. Thoughts swirl as ghosts through my mind. I hunger for more. Teachings pour into me from above, like warm honey. The Seventh Wheel is the gateway to the mind of God. I exist for His every word. I have picked from the tree, eaten the fruit, and my eyes are opened.
The Prayer. “for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 KJVA
The Prayer. “Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.” Psalm 119:66 KJVA
The Prayer. “and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” Ephesians 3:19 KJVA
The Prayer. “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:16 KJVA
The inspiration for this piece came to me in a vision during a time of separation due to a global pandemic. The corona virus was upon us, and the world was caught in a grip of fear. We were apart from our loved ones, and some were in despair. All were suffering. Then God reminded me that He is still here–now and for always.
I awake. It is the stillness before dawn. These are the final hours of the First Watch. I return from that sacred place, the world of dreams. There is where I rest with the One Source. During the night I studied with the Ascended Masters and I was nurtured by Sophia. The respite, in the blackness of night, is what prepares me for each new day. I cling to early morning, before the light. This is my time with my Creator, This is where I wish to abide always.
The Prayer. “when I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.” Psalm 63:6 KJVA
Today, as every day, I will carry The Word. I am your Oracle of Scripture. My mission is clear.
The Prayer. “Behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7 KJVA
The Prayer. “She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.” Proverbs 31:15 KJVA
Guide me from the moment my feet touch the floor. I will warm the house, prepare breakfast, clear the snow, and make ready for your new day.
I await the moment when I see their faces, and hear their voices. I pray that I bring them great joy, as they bring to me.
The sun is up, So begins the Second Watch. I cling to God’s presence, as it begins to slip away. I pray.
The Prayer. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33 KJVA
God has work for me. I will go. I will do it.
The Prayer. “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8 KJVA
The Prayer.“Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street.” Lamentations 2:19 KJVA
I dress for work. Is this my purpose? What awaits me there? Will I be successful? Am I doing God’s work? How will I know?
The Third Watch approaches. The workday is partly over. The rest of the day may present as challenging. Deadlines, urgency, time slipping away—worry sets in.
The Prayer. “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Philippians 4:6 KJVA
Returning home, I care for my family. I am weary. The day was long. This world makes my heart heavy. Have I done well?
The Prayer. “His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25:21 KJVA
The Prayer. “And the king said unto the man of God, Come home with me, and refresh thyself, and I will give thee a reward.” 1 Kings 13:7 KJVA
Dusk. It is time to light the incense and call upon God to find me again. Will He follow the scent of the frankincense and come home to me?
The Prayer. “And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.” Genesis 3:8 KJVA
The Prayer. “And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the Lord.” Leviticus 24:7 KJVA
Fourth Watch. We eat. We pray. We wash ourselves with God’s s pure water. We rest in our refuge. We are home.
The Prayer. “Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.” John 13:8 KJVA
I give thanks. I love. I celebrate. I serve. I embrace the spirit as the day ends. I return to my bed. He is all I see and all I seek.
The Prayer. “I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches. I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.” Psalm 119:14-15 KJVA
I ask and hope He will return to me and take me to His kingdom once again. I cry out: “Where are You?”
The Prayer. “In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,” Job 4:13 KJVA
Finally, the long-awaited words of God Himself are coming, as he meets me in another world. At last, I hear His Prayer. “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.” Proverbs 8:17 KJVA
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.” John 15:4 KJVA
Does the spirit live within the corporeal body? Or is the body a manifestation of the creative soul? Such an age old question, and still unanswered. We live in a place of duality. Segmentation is everywhere. We are black or white, male or female, good or bad. We are us, and they are them. Man and his spirit–are they two, or are we one? As God is the great I Am, then am I not also so? We are perfect creations of the One Source, made in His likeness. Each of us is a true kingdom of God.
Yet be warned: “But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.” Luke 11:17 KJVA
I have been severed. My soul is asunder. I know not how to secure my house, and my kingdom. When will I abide safe, in a state of unity, or the oneness of being? Is my house solid and indivisible? How can I learn what I must do? This I know—no longer will I be a house divided.
Deep in meditation I ponder on how to stop the rendering, and to close the gap within the holy kingdom that is me. The message is clear—it is accomplished through surrender, knowing, trusting, and inviting. Ask and receive, prepare your rooms, open wide your gates. Then will the spirit come to you and abide in you.
But wait! Further messages tell me another mystery, and a different how to bridge the divide within. I hear the call of my wild soul, and iI know it awaits me. I am invited, I am the guest. The mansion is prepared for me. The messengers have been dispatched to seek me out, and find me. It is up to me—I will go. My spirit is my mansion, and there I will take up my residence and abide forever.
And now I see there are more paths to unification—an infinite number. The ways to completion are as unique as is each individual soul. See now the spirit and the body, superimposed one upon the other. There is no beginning or end. The merge is ever moving, and ever changing. It can not be defined.
Jacob was a man in conflict, and a man of confrontation. In battling the angel, he battled himself.
Was Jacob’s struggle real? Or was he dreaming? Did he fall asleep in a state of anxiety, and the dream was connected to his imminent reunion with his brother? Perhaps this story represents the very paradox of humanity—is it a state of sin, or an immaculate and divine creation?
But Jacob was clear in that which he reported—he had seen God, face to face. Not only had he looked upon God, but he had touched Him, fought against Him, and conversed with Him. Yet Jacob was indeed a house divided.
Perhaps the angel is the Higher Self of Jacob—his I Am. Yet Jacob fought, and struggled against the unity that his Godself was seeking. Jacob had been taught of division and separation. As we read on through this section of Genesis, we see the elements of divide and conquer. Jacob sought to reconcile with his brother, and his brother wished the same. Yet when Jacob learned that Esau was approaching, he was afraid and called for a split as strategy.
“And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him. Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands; and said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.” Genesis 32:6-8 KJVA
Divide and conquer makes sense from a war consciousness,but see how far it had gone in Jacob’s story. And see how far it has gone in today’s world—thus my lamentation in the opening paragraph. We divide in order to conquer. But, as is war itself, this activity presents as a painful and unnatural response to humanity’s challenges. Today, we seek a new direction, a different approach, and peace. This is the path the new humans can set themselves upon when the decision is made—make yourselves whole, and abide in the holiness of your kingdoms. For these are the ways of God, and we humans have been called to hear and answer. God is making a new way in the wilderness.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9 KJVA
In this time of the COVID-19 we use words and practices such as distance, isolation,, and quarantine . These words hold tremendous energy—that of separation. Now is the time to devote ourselves, through holy scripture, to The One God. He is our portion. Within His ways and His thoughts we find life without illusion. For the deeply faithful, this is a plain truth.
Let us walk the king and winding path, retrieving the fragments of our soul along the way. Let us collect ourselves on this journey. Your road may be different than mine. The voice you hear will tell you a new story. Your guides will show you the way that is right for you. Seek yourself—the opportunity is now. Get there however you can.
Today I rest in my home, in my kingdom. There is no fear, no pain, and no suffering. Illusion is now clarity. Humanity and the world has become dreamlike, as I see a new world both within and without. Living in spirit is the true reality so many of us seek. I am unified. I am whole. I am home.

The inspiration for this piece came to me while I was working on my third book, The Bottom. In writing the section on cutting, came visions of another paradox of humanity. Amidst the great paradise of Earth and our human lives, exists a very real living hell.
This child came from a forgotten place. The baby came from an unseen universe , straight from the force of God Himself.
My soul called out for her, and her soul answered. She traveled through the unseen universe, and entered into the black nothing from whence all creation comes. Through this place of miracles, she grew, until God placed her into my waiting hands.
Such a perfect and immaculate miracle. I beheld great beauty, I smelled the sweetness of purity. I touched the warmth of life.
Suddenly this precious infant is no longer. Now this child is grown tall, and become so far away from my loving arms. Her once pristine skin is as a map, and it tells a story of pain. Blood and scars mark this perfect body. Her wounds ooze poison. I see the horror of what lies within. My eyes recall the innocence of this skin, which is now torn and desolate. She is a battlefield, and the war is forever recorded on the lines of her body. What have I done?
Should I have not desired to join together with this spirit? Do I now regret the asking? I had felt called to bring her into this world, and God had answered. I am connected to this soul, and she is connected to me. Were it such that I could go back and not bring her forth—I have sentenced her to a prison of agony. In my own desire, I have brought immense suffering upon an innocent soul and brought her forth into hell..
“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.” Deuteronomy 32:39 KJVA
But perhaps she had called out for me, and I had answered. Perhaps this tortured spirit sought a return to paradise, a comfort she had not yet known. Perhaps I was to show her Eden. But how do I take her there? What parts of me are standing in opposition to the pure melding of our souls? I can not look upon her blood soaked bed. I turn from the cuts that cover her limbs. I am gripped by a powerful fear when I approach her. My throat constricts, my heart pounds in my chest, and my hand trembles as I reach to open her door. I watch her sleep. She is unaware. Tears stream in rivers down my face. My pain is unbearable to me. I can only wonder at the depths of her pain. I envision that my agony is only a small portion of her own. I see her body, but can see no more.
Her wounds are inside, they fester. They cry out to me, they cut me to the very depths of my being. My mind races, my body rushes inside. I feel panic rise up and my desire is to rush to her. The outer wounds are only there to offer a glimpse of what lies within. What is this agony? How can this be? How can an innocent one suffer so? Is her body abhorrent to her? She has fallen prey to the ages of shame—the shame of illusion. We are taught that we are born filthy. We are taught that women are a disgrace. We are taught that our humanity is unholy. This world has lain all of these unbearable beliefs into this perfect little daughter. She has come forth bearing the weight of humanity’s sin. She has carried to me the burdens of the generations, and she has lain them at my feet. There is great expectation. Is this her holy dharma? Did I not call this forth? With horror I consider all of this.
I must answer. Now I must bind and cure. But how? How do I heal that which cannot be seen? What agony lies within, and shows so plainly on her once perfect body. What battle must I face against what holds her spirit captive? Are her cuts those same injuries as those of Jeremiah? As have I done, the prophet cried out to God for relief. “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.” Jeremiah 30:17 KJVA
I know now. God will heal her. God will anoint her with the oil of joy. The incense of heaven will one again be strong upon her skin. The clarity of her sovereignty will shine around her. I bemoan the time spent not knowing these answers. I regret the arrogance of striving to find salvation anywhere but in God’s light. I sought earthly remedies, and erroneously empowered others to be the way for us. I must now seek forgiveness, and the strength to carry out the binding of her wounds. As God brought her forth through me, I must now call upon that same power.. Today, I call out for her once again, but in a new and different way. I draw her soul to mine in holy communion. We rest in the light of God and receive our inheritance—peace, love, truth, and joy. Together we will know God and enter into the kingdom of heaven, as we exist in human bodies here on Earth. He will show us the Eden that surrounds us—no longer will it be hidden from us. Our journey has just begun.
Will she one day call out for another–an innocent and perfect child such as she? Or will another call out to her, to be brought forth through God’s power? Will this child grow to see her mother’s scars—the evidence of the agony here in this world and beyond? Will my child answer?
Will I have enough? Enough of what? Money? Power? Love? Will I be enough? Good enough? These are the questions locked away, unspoken, and oftentimes never answered. The terror of lack is the catalyst which causes one to hoard, to grasp, and to cling. In the practice of Tibetan Buddhism, this condition is referred to as “greed”, and it is one of the Eight Great Fears. In deep study, I meditate on the Fears as I call out to the Saviouress, in her words om tare tuttare ture soha. She answers.
“See now the wordplay:”
Miser/misery. Does miserliness lead one into misery? Or, perhaps misery causes one to hold tightly to all possessions, both material and other. Now is the time to let go. The answer to misery is to release that which one clings to. Free from the chains of lack, one drifts amongst clouds of possibilities that pass across the blue sky. This action truly is a leap of faith. And be warned of another word in the group…miser, misery…demise. Let go, and live.
Give/forgive. Gifts come to us in continuous flow. They are magnetized to us, drawn by the powerful sun within us. They radiate forth with that same energy. Once in our brief possession, blessings warm us, comfort us, and fill us. As prosperity, in many forms, passes through us, vessels of alchemy all, it gushes into our world. He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. John 7:38 KJVA. Perhaps forgiveness is yet another word to describe a blessing that comes from within the yellow crystal core. For us to believe that we can not forgive, is for us to be trapped in a place of disempowerment. Give, and receive.
“See now the reconciling:”
Generosity is the remedy for greed. The Buddhist cosmology describes generosity as giving of oneself. Yet many fail to recognize the worth that lies within. They think they have nothing to give. This truly represents a life of poverty–not material lack but spiritual insufficiency. One can not give what one does not possess. Is this truth? Or is it a turning away from the promises of God? Or is this mindset a failure to see, or even a rejection of, prosperity that rains down upon us all?
Compassion is the remedy for a broken spirit. Perhaps the words of Jesus, as spoken from a mountainside, describe both the condition and the relief. Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.Matthew 5:3 KJVA
When He said “blessed”, Jesus was saying loved, important, and valuable. He reminds us that the kingdom of heaven is for all souls. Some know this, and others do not. We reach out with compassion to those who do not. Compassion stirs in our hearts and the emotions signal to us that it is present. The compassion I speak of is not a feeling that we experience, rather it is a gift that we extend.
Now come together the way of Buddha in the presentation of the Eight Great Fears, and the Christ energy bringing forth eight blessings, as recorded in The Beatitudes. The blending of the two systems make whole the mystery. Let us see miserliness as what it truly is, and let us heal it through forgiveness and compassion–for others and for ourselves. For compassion and forgiveness are among humanity’s greatest gifts. Compassion without fear is truth.
