James 4:7 Dancing with the Devil

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  James 4:7 KJV

The inspiration for this piece came to me in a dream of James 4:7.  I wondered what it meant, so I sought the loving Christ energy and asked, “Tell me”.  He smiled, and said: “Look!”. What I saw next was a collection of beings in a breathtaking and beautiful display of movement, color, and light.  But within the expression I also observed sadness, anger, desperation, and lack. Thus began the dance.

The Vision

The devil comes in many forms.  Today he appeared to me as the Eight Great Fears of Buddhism.  They surrounded me as I stood in the center of a perfectly symmetrical mandala.  The form was alive, and my feet were rooted in its core. The outer core of the mandala held the eight.  They were also bound within the confines of the mandala. We were captive in its borders and in its power.  The demons encircled me, at once dancing in masquerade, and mocking.

To the north was avarice.  It appeared as clothed in golden fabrics and  translucent rays of red light. There were coins, food, and an entourage  of enslaved creatures, bound to it by chains.

To the south was jealousy.  It was dressed in brilliant hues of green, and its body was thin, hungry for attention and affection.  It was alone and danced in anger for all that it was not.

The Eight rapidly continued to move, to sway, to leap.  They threatened me, I was frozen in my terror. They encroached.  The intensity grew. Suddenly a man appeared by my side. He was large, and powerful.  His ominous presence produced a great heat, and I felt his fierce love for me as it drove him into battle.  He was a soldier at the ready. But suddenly he, too, began to dance with passion and with purpose. And as he did so, he struck at the approaching devils.  They attacked from all sides. With profound grace and strength, he produced a great sword, and turned swiftly to face each enemy. I watched in horror as the battle became a ballet of death.  And then he was finished—victorious in his work.

I was relieved, yet compassion and sadness washed over me.  I gazed at my surroundings. Who were they? Why had they come?  What were their stories and had anyone ever listened? Thunderous emotion moved me, and now it was my time to dance.  I was swept in a slow, graceful dance of release, of freedom, and of truth. I danced towards the north, and from my garment I poured out prosperity and abundance over the defeated form of avarice.   Next I moved to the broken being of ignorance, and I presented an Ajna, within which were the keys to the libraries of all knowledge. Next I unveiled the blackness of Judgement, and looked upon it with eyes of mercy.   In my continuing dance I attended to each demon. I soothed, I nurtured, and I anointed them with infinite great love—that which I had learned from the Christ. The Fears began stirring, and reviving. But now they appeared as transformed and were no longer treacherous.  They were brighter. As they began to arise, they were healed, and whole.

Finished, I returned to center and the great warrior held me in his arms.  Locked into each other’s eyes, our bodies began to move in sacred rhythm. Together we danced the holy celebration of life.  Like David returning victorious to Jerusalem (2 Samuel 6:14), we leapt for joy, for unity, for love and for light. In gratitude, I bowed to the man.  In admiration he bowed to me. And as we embraced our bodies began to merge, and soon we were one. I understood that we had always been one.  He was me, and I was he. So then I knew that the Eight were also part of me. Yet within the power of the unifying mandala, the Eight Great Fears, and the immaculate forces of good had become balanced as the yin and yang.

Peace had come to the mandala and to all beings rooted in its healing power.  Peace had come to me. Now I am at peace, and now I Am Peace.

With great love,

You Are She


The inspiration for this piece came to me during a period of study, pondering the duality of the feminine.  Do I embrace the paradoxical nature of it all, or do I transcend? I was frozen in my doubt. I was the worldly seeking the wise.  In a spontaneous opening of wisdom, at 4:44 she speaks to me, and I write.

I cry out to the wise feminine energy, the Tara, to clear my path.  I can fight no longer, but, for me, I know she will carry weapons of destruction.  Her arsenal will overflow with tools of building up and of demolishing.

I am weak.  She is strong.

I am unsure.  She expands and sweeps me into her arms.

I fear.  She embodies courage.

I weep, and mourn. She knows the truth of the temporal.

I hesitate. She leaps into action.

Yet she is still elusive.  Where is she? Will she appear to me?  Will it be now? Tomorrow? How will I know her?  Will she not help me? But, beware invoking Tara–the wrath of the divine feminine will destroy pieces of the world which you have created.  With her kartari she will cut away that which you cling to.

Wait!  Is that her?  I feel her presence.  Now she arrives at my side.  Her weapons, her natural energy, and her boldness suddenly seem familiar to me.  Now return to me all long past memories, hidden within the yellow cave of power. I reflect, I project, and  I believe, therefor I know. The understanding emerges as the rising of the hot sun. For belief is one step along the path to gnosis.  To get there, one must swim in the sea and search for the lost paradise. Fly above the waters of the flood and pluck the olive branch. Endure the terrors of the forest, and the ferocious monsters who will devour you.  Dwell in the boneyard and drink from the skulls. This is how to seek her, for these are the places you will find her in.

As Yeshua was to be found amongst the lepers, the thieves, and the outcasts, so too will Tara be found amongst the dangerous, the ravenous, and the dark forces.  Without the dark, we can not find the light. To seek and find true liberation through gnosis, is to understand the duality of creation.

Tara is every woman, and every woman is she.  Tara is many, and the many are one. She is Eve, the first manifestation of the sacred feminine.

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.  (Genesis 3:20 KJVA.)

She has always been, and will never leave us.  She waits with the patience of ages, and she strikes with a lightning flash as a cobra.  She is me. And I am she. She awaits our union, in the yellow crystal core.

And when I am cruel, she teaches of compassion.  Search for the dakini and where you find her you will discover true freedom.

Are you hiding something?  Is there a mess that you haven’t attended to?  Is it time for you and your people to muck out the stalls?  Something doesn’t smell right.

Leaders are called to renew and refresh–not just ourselves, but each other.  Good leaders must always set the example:  never let your values collect dust.  In order to become a stronger leader, you must examine limiting beliefs and conditioning, and rinse them away.  Good leaders must work diligently to keep themselves pristine.  When you continue to polish your integrity and morals, you also maintain morale.  After the wild party, you and your team must work to set things right.  Watch for dirt that’s been swept under the carpet.  Clean up your act.  Wash up!

Is there dance in their steps?  Do you all hear music?  Can you see the colors, or are your people shades of grey?  More importantly, what color are you?

The seer is “one who sees”.  The “eye of the beholder” is a phrase about perception.  When one is a creative genius, one has defined their own aesthetics.  You, the leader, are both the artist and the art.  Those who follow look to you as not just the master, but the masterpiece.  They gaze upon you with awe.  In watching you, they see the synchronicities that a great leader does naturally command.  They watch the unfolding of elegance upon the blank canvas.  Your success is a beautiful thing.

Sea of Eden


Image by Gerd Altmann of Germany on Pixabay

The inspiration for this piece came to me in a vision of Eden.  It was beyond my reach, on the ocean floor. With hands raised to One who would see me and hear me, I cried out:  “Let me see this place! Let me in!” Then came an answer: “Not yet”.

There was a day when God gave to Man dominion over the earth.

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:28 KJVA.)

Man was strong and free.  God had bestowed the power to command all of creation.  Man could run, and could climb. Man could swim, and He could fly.  All the Earth was Eden, and all was good.

But then was something different.  Man was no longer the same. Gone were his gills and his fins.  The power over water was leaving him now. For Man, water became a blessing and a curse–life or death to him and to all life.  No longer could the human command the water.

Now comes the flood.  The rain came down and the oceans swelled.  Noah and his kin took to an ark for survival.  During 150 days and more, man’s conversion became more complete.   And Noah called upon the raven and the dove to fly for him, and seek dry land.  Continents were then revealed, but not Eden.

“And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ar´arat.” (Genesis 8:4 KJVA.)

Man was lost, disoriented.  They disembarked onto the mountain and began to live again.  But they had forgotten that they could swim. And they had forgotten that they could fly.  And no longer could they find Paradise.

Now comes Jonah–thrown into the raging sea by a team of sailors.  The whale knew he would not survive and thus became as the Ark had been for Noah–a vessel of safety.

“Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” (Jonah 1:17 KJVA.)

What secrets did the whale tell Jonah?  Did it carry him back to Paradise? Was it there, in the waters of the deep?   Jonah had heard the call of God, and had seen Eden.

Now comes Jesus, walking upon the Sea of Galilee. He remembers that which had been forgotten for so many generations .  He calls to Peter but Peter becomes lost, and can not remember.

” And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.” (Matthew 14:25 KJVA.)

Now comes the ichthys, and symbology of the fish.  Where we find the fish, we find Eden. But still man can not go there.  The way is shut for generation after generation. See now the ichthys as the ajna, calling upon us to see, or to sea.

Now comes Atlantis, and once again Utopia disappears into the great and dark abyss.  The event reminds us to remember. Will we ever find the lost city?

Now I ask: is Eden in the sea?  When will we return to it? When will we remember our dominion over all the Earth?  I heard a voice say: “Not for generations will you remember. Not for 70 or 700 generations.  But return you will. All generations will return, and yet you have already returned. For there is no returning, and there is no becoming.  Past and future are illusions. Time does not exist. Know you are there, and Paradise is found. For Eden is a state of being, and a place each of us can go. Any who wish to find Eden must reclaim the power of dominion.  And to have dominion over self is to be all-powerful.”

Now come the whales.  They carry the ancient secrets.  They know the way. They hide, deep within the ocean.    Yet humans seek to destroy the whales. These majestic creatures carry the sounds of joy, and the tones of remembrance.  They are the guardians of the very song of God. They watch over Eden and keep it safe from humanity, and safe for humanity.

Today, the same water that covered the Earth, and covers our paradise, recedes from us.  Humans have polluted and defiled the lakes and the oceans. We have harmed, and made filthy, our life-giving water.  We have made filthy our Eden. Shortage is coming. Many will die. But hope remains, if only we believe that we are the very water of life.

“He that believeth on me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38 KJVA.)

The search for the lost paradise exists  in order to teach of duality. This story, as told to me, is about irony and synchronicity.  Past and future are explained here. The story is about sabotage and redemption. The teachings of the waters are endless.  I thirst for more, therefore I ask for the sacred water to be given me.

“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 KJVA.)


I have no answers still, only more questions.  I still seek Eden, I still can not fly. And still I thirst.

Are you averse to hand-holding?  Do you ascribe to tough love?  Sink or swim?  Where is the love?

We are people—people leading people.   Sometimes your flock needs a vigilant shepherd.  When they are in over their head, your followers need a lifeguard to rescue them.  And there are even times when human emotions overflow into the workplace and you stand in as comforter.  Leading must be done with care, both for yourself and for those who look up to you.  Remember–you are everything to somebody.  And you love to be just that.

You’re almost there.  The other side is within your sight.  Be watchful of doubt—the uncertainty of knowing what to let go of, and when to let it go.  Too often, we cling to things that would weigh us down, or drag us away from the finish line.

Crossing the monkey bars on the playground was a learning experience beyond our conscious knowing.  Every single rung was about letting go, swinging, grasping what lies ahead, and doing it again.  Close your eyes and re-live this activity.  Hear the sounds, feel the pressure on your hands, feel the weight and the tension in your arms.  Pause if you must but avoid hanging too long.  Now open your eyes and swing!

Did you miss that turn?  Were you derailed?  Where did we go wrong?

Not to worry.  Take this opportunity to examine why you missed the mark.  Retracing your steps means to go backwards.  Check for important moves that were jumped over.  Observe whether your actions were aligned with your values.  Examine the spell you crafted.  Review the ceremony that set the wheels in motion.  Do not take shortcuts, and never underestimate the power of planning with purpose.  Reset, reboot, recommit, and do it again.

Have you ever heard of the “It Girl”?  Think Lesley Lawson, a.k.a. Twiggy.  And then there’s Gloria Vanderbilt.  These icons became legendary role models for the fashion industry.  They are among the ranks of celebrities who stun the world with their art.  Too lofty for you to aspire to?  Nope!

These leaders were born just like everybody else–with gifts.  People like John Lennon and Andy Warhol knew who they wanted to be. Warren Buffett does his thing, every day.  It’s the same for me—and for you.  You have an entourage—a paparazzi!  You are the creator of your own destiny and those whom you lead are eager to imitate.  Don’t play small.  All eyes are on you.  Embody the “It”.  The world is watching.  Strut your stuff.  Work your magic.
