Are we healing?

And how are we healing?

Dear Ones,

Of the hurt we experienced in lives past, and in lives present?

The comment from a friend, as well as a beautiful post from the Creator, that both came to me this morning, made me reflect upon the hurt we may be experiencing, individually or collectively, one way or another; and the way we “embrace” this hurt, so to speak, knowing that ‘embracing’ doesn’t mean agreeing or enjoying; rather, taking it into our awareness of the shift we are going through at a higher level.

My friend’s comments were related to his involvement in social media.

“Over the period of time I have been [involved], I also received personal messages of negative, abusive content related to the nature of what I share. On the simplest of human levels, this is hurtful.”

And is the Creator’s message for today, February 17.

“Many unsettling and painful things are coming up during this shift. On all levels (personal, societal, global) every person is experiencing their own unique awakening. Some are handling it well, others are not. It is important to remember that this is not a time to judge. Yes, it is perfectly acceptable to be angry at the violence and division some of these events are causing, but it is also good to keep in mind that a deep healing process in the ‘collective’ is happening now!

We must first see and face the darkness before a conscious awareness and clearing can be achieved.  Believe, dear One, that with the loving support of the Universe, great things can be and are being accomplished.”

~ Creator

In our family case, the hurt is coming from the school our son attends. This is his third year at the same school and things have changed this year, for the ‘colder.’ Meaning for a less human-oriented, less warm approach, as I perceive it. A new director has set in, with her ways of approaching the ‘business at hand.’ She is much more masculine than the previous director, and some of us can feel the effects of her efficiency. Yesterday, we met in her office because our son had broken the door of a little wooden house the day before. Our son received a well-deserved lesson that will hopefully teach him respect for his environment and the folks in it. Upon the conclusion of this meeting, the director shook my wife’s hand. A sign of business well conducted, perhaps? Or perhaps I am simply too sensitive myself? Yet, this is not the first sign that I noticed in the ‘cold front,’ either from the school director or the teachers, and the list could be quite long.

Lately, I was asking myself, “why is it that we had such a beautiful year last year in school, and such a difficult, painful one this year?”

Is this because of the shift? Is this because of what planet Earth is undergoing?

My friend’s comment and the Creator’s words certainly brought a fresh perspective to the fore. Yet, are we healing from the hurt? And if we are, how are we doing it?

Each person’s approach to healing might be different; it might be a question of what she or he is experiencing, as well as the context in which the hurt takes places. The number of people involved, as well as the frequency of the hurt.

In our case, I have learned to detach myself from what is happening at school, on more than one level, while yet remaining involved in the numerous opportunities we have to get involved in supporting this educational institution.

It is not that I see things differently, or that I put a shield over my heart, it is that I have removed a layer of emotional sensitivity, if that makes sense, after mourning the good old days we had last year. Life happens, hurt—and sometimes nonsense—happens, it doesn’t feel as painful as it used to, and life goes on.

I also came to realize that I am not here to change our son’s school. I have enough work with myself!

As synchronicity would have it, I came across this evening an article mentioning maitri, or unconditional loving kindness. This is a tool we can apply to ourselves as we encounter painful situations. The characteristic of maitri that seems most important in the situations I evoked is the following one:

“Maitri also relaxes us and allows us to be gentle and kind toward ourselves. Our pain is still there, but instead of avoiding it, we care for it as we would care for an open wound.”

There is one more thing that I noticed in recent weeks, with the waves of energy pouring over us: the need to rest. For one, I listen to my body and I take naps, sometimes two of them a day.

It may sound like a simple thing, one that apparently doesn’t have anything to do with the hurt we are experiencing, and yet these naps are as good for the soul as they are for the body. I can attest it, I just took one!

TIBETAN DRAGON SONG SUPER FULL MOON 11-11-11

TIBETAN DRAGON SONG SUPER FULL MOON 11-11-11

On January 31st, the magnificent Full Moon will take to the sky at 11° Leo, activating an incredibly rare 11-11-11 dragon portal.

2018 is an “11” Universal Year and the Sun is currently in Aquarius, ruler of the 11th House of the Zodiac.

11° Leo is the Sign of the Dragon in Tibetan and Vedic Nakshatras.

If you are reading this then you are likely to have had a past life as a Dragon Rider in many ancient cultures both on this world and others, identify with the Kundalini as the Serpent or Dragon Energy and know that you are in a cycle of deep Alchemy/Tantra/Union activation and empowerment of the mystical mandala in the coming week.

Dragons, as you know, having nurtured and reared them, are a living energy force that arise “within and without”, ‘within’ meaning in the spine, and ‘without’ meaning as real manifestations in your dreams and visions.

As a traveler of parallel and inter-dimensional worlds, you know that dragons are a powerful force.

With current physics “discovering” multiple dimensions (in bosonic string theory spacetime is 26 dimensions) you realize it is only a matter of time before we all make real physical connections through our Light Body to the inter-dimensional worlds we already connect to, in our visions and dreams.

“Just like a person dreams at night the universe also dreams”

(from ‘The Place Promised In Our Early Days’)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqeKoCYkgWo&t=1832s

(Thank you Katherine)

Dragons are spoken of by all Masters and Djedhi when they refer to Shakti, the Divine Feminine Creative Power or the Pure Primeval Force of the Great Mother, the Creative Source underlying all things.

Yogananda wrote in Autobiography of a Yogi

“The astral universe is hundreds of times larger than the material universe with many astral planets, teeming with astral beings.”

The dragon portal opens the door to astral creativity and powerful abundance so whatever you focus on will manifest with stunning results.

Try the following –

Take one precious thought, make a pure intention, and visualize hear and feel it throughout the day.

See how long you can do this for.

It will give you an idea of just how powerful your focus is, or just how much training you need!

You will already be finding dream consciousness is awakening deeper new insights into the powers (siddhis) you truly have through activations and empowerments.

You will be noticing synchronicities, partners and friends intuition opening, crystals attuning, and healing practices more powerful, with lovemaking in all its forms more deep and light-forming.

I had a dream of a monkey-dragon-whale connected to this portal.

It was amazingly clear and powerful.

I can still feel it now.

It means that this portal for me is asking for focused intent (the mischievousmonkey brain) in the inner spine of fire and bliss (the dragon spine) and to immerse myself in Divine Mother’s Ocean (whale tail).

Whenever dragons arise for me they are traditionally azure-blue.

This is partially to do with my connection to Sirius B and dragon worlds and partly to do with Chinese past lives.

The azure-blue dragon is also called Shenlong, also Shen-lung, literally meaning a “god dragon” or “spirit dragon”.

In Japanese it is Shinryū and is a spiritual dragon from Chinese mythology who is the master of storms and also a bringer of rain.

He/She is of equal significance to other creatures such as Tianlong, the celestial dragon.

The spiritual dragons are azure-scaled and govern the wind, clouds and rain, on which all agricultural life depends.

Chinese people would take great care to avoid offending them, for if they grew angry or felt neglected, the result was bad weather, drought, flood or thunderstorms.

Despite that, Shenlong appears to signify a special ranking in the splendid robes and regalia of Chinese emperors.

He/She was also five-clawed and therefore an imperial dragon.

I live right now in an area in Japan governed by a Shinryu Dragon called Inba.

Inba is a wish-fulfilling dragon and the boundaries of our area are marked by statues of Inba the Dragon bearing a pearl (a Chintamani Stone).

This is the final cycle of the planet, a time when your inter-dimensional alchemy is flowing.

You understand the power within and without, “as above so below” so you know many of the events happening on earth are reflecting the wider cosmos and your knowledge of how to use the alchemy you practiced as a Dragon Rider is awake.

So you know how to connect to the inner spine and the Dragon forms of Kundalini.

There are many forms of Kundalini or Shakti much as there are many forms of martial arts.

I studied the Praying Mantis style kung-fu for many years as a teenager with Master Wu from China.

He also spoke about the Dragon energies that can be harnessed by masters in all martial arts.

This year the rare super moon falls into the embrace of the Tibetan Goddess Dengchen Lhamo, the Dragon-tailed Goddess and the Chinese Mother Dragon Goddess Nu-Kua, and is the mystical ninth Vedic nakshatra Ashlesha, consisting of six stars in the constellation of Hydra, the female water snake or the azure-blue dragon.

The symbol for this intense nakshatra is the coiled serpent at the base of the spine, reflecting the potent kundalini energy that resides here.

Ashlesha means “the entwiner” and denotes the challenges of our addictions to sensory attachments.

It is a very mental asterism ruled by Mercury and located in the sign of Cancer ruled by Moon.

The main deities are the Nagas, the Serpent Kings and Mother Dragons.

The shakti revealed here is the “power to mesmerize” to use dreams and visions to cross dimensions.

Ashleshans have a rakshasa temperament with a primary motivation of dharma.

Great mystical talents and enlightenment can be experienced if the primordial energy of this lunar asterism is harnessed.

The Buddha had this nakshatra rising under a benefic full Moon during his blessed birth.

The King Cobra protected the Buddha from the storms of life as he performed his tapas (spiritual austerities) under the bodhi tree.

This full moon deity is Ahi who in the Vedic lore is the naga or serpent/dragon wisdom, an energy that brings mystical power, electrifying shakti and spiritual enlightenment.

Your knowledge of alchemy and natural magic is flowing through these connections and your consciousness is already reaching a point of presence in the sounds and light of the Dragon Portal, opening the language we call light language to communicate beyond this world, dream with the universe and retrieve information and energy from the Naga or Dragon Lore (see the practice below).

You can touch your deity consciousness, your Light Family, and bring healing to those around you by embodying god and goddess consciousness in the Light of this Dragon Portal.

Seeing all beings as Divine Beings.

Seeing all beings as Light Beings.

Your path is the Shambhala Path, a simple awareness of being and co-creation where you are aware that the veils cast over our earth with its limited perspectives and beliefs has nothing whatsoever to do with the unlimited eternal True Self.

When you fill yourself with compassion and gratitude you will naturally surrender and let go and attract the energies beyond this world that feed your heart and bring you divine connections across worlds to expand your true self and our shared heart.

You are the Light.

You know the Azure Blue Dragon Consciousness in the Pure Land of Divine Mother where She helps you embrace all events and circumstances knowing that everything is in order.

All conflict elevates to higher peaceful resolution.

The ocean of Divine Mother resolves and heals any situation that is in progress.

If you consciously visualize and feel relief of that situation now you will bring presence to that situation and more quickly receive the divine solution and Mother’s Blessing of Peace when it arrives.

It is all in the Divine Plan.

Dragon or serpent eyes can penetrate to the depths of understanding and explore the steamy caverns of the soul.

The Dragon or Serpent is the symbol of divine wisdom, procreation, sexuality and prosperity.

In Ashlesha the Dragon Wisdom must be respected and harnessed.

This time may be deeply philosophical thoughtful and penetrating.

You may wish to be reclusive or sleep like a cat, warm and protected in your own space.

It can also bring out magnetism, sensuality and seduction.

Exploration of sexuality can be deep and transcendental.

The shadow side can be mental anxiety or melancholy.

Sharp energies can arise with hot irritable feelings.

This is all a sign of divine restlessness.

Difficulty in controlling diet may occur.

Mahatma Gandhi with his natal moon in Ashlesha spent most of his life trying to purify and restrain his eating habits.

Cultivation of gratitude and courage to face life’s situations exactly as they are is the key.

Doing this develops powerful presence and opens the portal of Now for deep mystical intuitive insight.

The Dragon’s Heart is courage.

It represents the bliss drops at the center of your heart.

When activated it brings “undefeatable power”, yatna shakti and spiritual enlightenment.

The treasure is in the heart.

You may find yourself making gains from whatever you anchor this weekend in the following week, so long as you persist with determination in what you started.

The greatest good you can do is to help alleviate the suffering of others by reminding them of who they truly are.

The I AM Presence.

You are the Light.

A sattwic, pure foods or vegetarian diet and practice of ahimsa (non-violence) is advised to allow the Light to enter.

The Dragon energy within will be aroused.

The key is transmutation.

Surrender.

Keep the focus on unity consciousness.

Be careful not to be critical or complaining as this energy brings a period of a sensitive nervous system, skin sensitivity, allergies and mental restlessness and critical speech only heightens such sensitivities.

Gratitude and appreciation can heal many wounds.

Compassionate communication.

Gratitude, courage, purification of eating habits and time to be alone in nature and stillness with your loved ones and divine friends are the best remedies.

PRACTICE

The simplest way to practice the alchemy of the Dragon is to BE the energies of the Sky Dancer, the Dragon Rider, of whom you are one, as you have the Light Body of a Sky Dancer within.

The Sky Dancer energy is depicted as the Goddess Saraswati, manifesting as mantra and mudra (sound and symbol), and mystical mandala, which is experienced through meditating on the mandala of the Goddess and walking, breathing, eating from within this energy Source.

Perhaps the simplest Mandala is a Lotus.

See yourself as this Lotus.

The Dalai Lama in sharing the Avakokiteshvara/Guan Yin empowerment also shared the mudra and Mandala of Guan Yin.

You do this by holding your hands in prayer posture at the heart.

Then open your hands and fan them emulating a Lotus.

At your Heart.

The Heart of the Lotus.

The Heart of Divine Mother.

“Every person is a Divine Mother” as the Dalai Lama often says.

The 2nd Buddha, Padmasambhava, when he taught the Divine Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal said

“The Mandala of Ultimate Tantra or Alchemy is like an udumbara lotus flower.

It rarely appears, and remains only briefly.

Not all of the blessed encounter it, so rare is its blooming.

Be glad and offer your mystic mandala to Him/Her (your Divine Guru within).”

Alchemy and Tantra and the Five Buddha Families and the Lotus Mandala were taught in a way that the more complex the mandala meditated upon, the more powerful its potency to ripen one’s continuum throughout time and space.

As within so without.

As above so below.

Here is a way to activate the Mystic Mandala of the Lotus.

It is from ‘The Tantra of the Diamond Sky Dancer’.

Settle yourself somewhere quiet.

For a few minutes take your attention to your breathing.

Breathing in, I am aware I am breathing in love and light, wisdom and compassion, breathing out I am aware I am breathing out love and light, wisdom and compassion.

Be kind to yourself.

Take your attention to your spine, the astral spine, the sushumna, and visualize it as a spine of light.

Perform guru yoga meditation.

Simply you can visualize your guru within and offer strong prayers and blessings for the liberation for all beings.

Allow an intention to unfold that you visit a Pure Land or a world from the Guru Within’s direction or your choosing.

Sitting in Vajra posture with legs crossed and hands placed on your thighs (or sitting or lying depending on your physical circumstance) visualize yourself as the Guru Within and Consort.

This could be Yeshua and Mary Magdalene for example or Amitabha and Pandaravasini.

See the central energy channel running straight up the centre of your body.

The channel is the thickness of a wheat straw made of pure light, astral light to connect you to the astral world, and it runs from the crown of the head (the Brahma aperture) above to a point four fingers below the navel.

At the base of the channel is the Mystic Mandala which could be the Lotus or a triangular dharmodaya or a mandala of your own choosing or lineage.

Inside the lower part of the channel is your own mind in the form of a pure radiant Light Syllable.

This could be the syllable AH or a vibration of your own choosing like OM.

It is light and delicate.

Hold your mind here for some time until you develop deep presence of the vibration.

Above your head visualize your paramguru.

This could be God in the form of Light or a particular deity such as Vajradhara or Vajrayogini.

Summon and absorb the Wisdom Beings, invoke and receive empowerment from the Initiation Deities, be crowned by the Christ and the Buddha, make offerings and prayers and recite the mantra that is your root mantra.

God as Light or the deity you chose becomes your own root guru.

As you breathe in the central channel, the sushumna, on the inward breath, draw the breath as Light from the Mystic Mandala.

This sacred breath pushes the tiny radiant symbol AH which ascends up the sushumna to the crown.

When the radiant symbol reaches the crown a stream of nectar (amrita) issues forth from the Heart of God as Light and dissolves into the Light syllable AH.

On the outward breath, draw the breath as Light from the God consciousness (above the body) down and around the root or ground, connecting the Light of God Within to Your Mystic Mandala.

Do this 11 times.

Visualize the sushumna as a gateway that you have opened, a Dragon Portal, a Sky Dance, through which this God consciousness pours, so that the ocean of your heart fills with the love and light of the Dragon Portal that is opening.

Breathing in, I am aware I am breathing in love and Light, wisdom and compassion, breathing out I am aware I am breathing out love and Light, wisdom and compassion.

Love and soul blessings and a wishing you a magnificent Dragon Portal!

NOTE :

When I was 9 years old I lived next to three people who strongly influenced my path.

My next door neighbor on my left was the head of an alchemy group of St Germain.

She gave me two books to read as a young boy, Autobiography of a Yogi and The Kybalion when I told her I wanted to do magic, real magic.

I always thought she looked most otherworldly, like an angel.

We will call her Master S.

Next to her lived two sisters who were ardent somewhat crazy Sai Baba devotees.

They always had vibhuti (divine ash) falling out of and off Sai Baba’s pictures. I considered this marvelous proof of divine physics.

And around the corner on my right lived a world famous astrologer.

We will call him Master R.

When my neighbor the alchemist took me to meet the world famous astrologer to read the destinies of my birth, he consulted his charts and books and simply said “This boy has the capacity to be a famous astrologer.”

I would love to know which “ordinary people” amongst your family neighbors and friends influenced your Dragon’s Path.

What keeps us going?

Dear Ones,

Much of inspiration is coming from mundane, day to day living and observing.

This morning, I was driving down the hill on our way to school. I noticed a man, fairly young, on the opposite side of the street, requesting. He comes here very often and positions himself at a strategic location, by a stop sign, and at the top of the perpendicular hill. Drivers who come out of the mall must stop and cannot not see him.

This man made me think for a minute about the way(s) we live our lives.

What keeps him coming to the very same place every day?

Easy money, perhaps?

And why not get a job at a fast food chain, my privileged being retorted? At least, this man would be in a warm environment and could even get fed.

So, indeed, what keeps us going?

And what keeps us coming back to do the same over and over again? In a somewhat, or not so much, awakened condition?

As I wrote last week, are we aware? Are we awake?

And if not, do we want to do anything about this ‘awakeness’, or lack of it?

It is a question that might be of utmost importance in the days and weeks to come, as the Arcturians pointed out this morning:

“It is for the purpose of giving some of you the ability and the experience to be of service to others. You all have your roles to play, and right now, your role is to be out a bit in front of the rest of the collective. You are the trailblazers. You are the leaders of the movement. And as such, you are often seen as outsiders.

Now, when these occurrences on your world begin there will be a certain amount of panic and fear. But that is all right. You are prepared for that. You are prepared because many of you have been facing your own fears for quite some time, and you are not only capable of handling your emotions, but also of helping others to process theirs. Your world is ready for big changes to occur, and you are ready to support those who are not.”

https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2018/01/30/a-mass-awakening-%E2%88%9Ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven-2/

See you on Thursday, dear Ones!

Smelling the roses of the New Age

Dear Ones,

The New Age is dawning. Perhaps we can all sense it, slightly hidden behind the upcoming solstice! But are we ready to smell and enjoy Its roses?

We watched a beautiful movie today; that of Ferdinand, a touchy-feely bull who enjoys the flowers the Universe sends him wherever he goes. In fact, he even took time to smell a carnation in the middle of the bulls’ arena!

Against the odds of a male-oriented society that requires bulls (did I say men?) to be tough and fight hard, Ferdinand brings such a lovely touch of the more feminine, the more gentle that favors friendship, cooperation and the Heart.

Does Ferdinand sound like the union of Divine attributes: the feminine and masculine, announcing a new way of being and a different tempo for the Age that is being birthed?

It felt very much like it. And watching this movie felt very soothing.

And as synchronicity would have it, a portion of today’s Arcturians message embraced a similar approach to life.

Now some of you often feel like you’re not doing enough, or you sense that there’s a purpose for you being here on planet Earth, but you cannot determine what that is. And that is because there are no actions necessary for you to take. Your presence here and your willingness to endure is your gift to the rest of humanity. It is your gift to the entire galaxy and the entire universe, as you summon forth so much more of that high frequency energy because of what you’ve endured, because of the struggles that you’ve faced.

Everything now is pointing you towards the ascension of humanity, and it is up to you to feel for the support that you’re getting, the connections that you’re making, and to remember the bigger picture here of what you are accomplishing. This is an historic time for the planet and all of her inhabitants, and you who are awakened are the ones who are leading the movement forward.

Looking forward to smelling the roses of the New together this Thursday, a few hours past the solstice.

Happy solstice everyone!

Reflecting on religion and our search for the Sacred

A friend of mine, who usually doesn’t participate in our communions, said she would attend this Thursday; interested that she is in the path toward the inner Sacred. This made me realize that I need to put a little more reflection and words into this week’s gathering.

This theme of Searching for the Sacred stems from my observations during the past few days wandering throughout France. People sharing the importance of belonging to such and such groups, which seems to provide some sort of guardianship, or moral protection, or even impetus to go forward.

This is how I interpret their spiritual or religious connection, based on the prism that colors my reality.

Friends of mine, who are masons, mentioned the importance of studying within a group, and the friendly push they receive during their studies.

Last year, during one of their public meetings, values of the congregation were shared with us: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity and, above all, it seems, laïcité (secularism).

These are irrevocable French values, at least since the Revolution of 1789.

Why would someone need to ‘receive’ an additional coat of value-conditioning in addition to what the citizens of their country inherit?

Are we / they getting a double whammy here?

Another friend of mine explained to me that she wouldn’t engage into such or such behavior because she is catholic. That is fine, but why can’t she use her own conscience, her personal wisdom and compassion, to assess the inadequacies of such behavior?

Despite the comfort they provide, don’t these groups take us on to the outer road, on to the path that looks outside ourselves to obtain confirmation (and conformation) or support?

How much of our ‘inner Sacred’ do we forgo when we join these groups, and when we look outside for answers and security of mind?

My propensity toward walking the ‘inner Sacred’ is clear by now; yet it doesn’t tell how one should do to engage this most adventurous path?

There may be answers for some and that do not work for others. And I do not have all the answers. The answers I have are those that ‘do the work’ for me, that propel me forward.

Clearly, they are about listening to what comes, to what knocks at the door, and asserting myself.

Asserting myself with Love and Compassion, and telling what and why it doesn’t work for me. Such an instance occurred yesterday evening at dinner time while talking to my brother. I said what I had to say, clearly aware of the need to assert myself, and our conversation went on beautifully.

These ‘assertiveness pointers’ were highlighted for me during our retreat in the south of France this past June. It seems they are still working wonder!

Looking forward to exploring ‘our Way within’ with you All this Thursday!

Love & much Light

Seeking the Sacred within

Dear Ones,

I am coming to the end of a two week-trip to my homeland of France.

Within this period, I attended three Catholic church services, came into contact with people of strong faith and attended a promotion-oriented masonic exhibit in Toulouse.

This made me reflect on what I call the ‘scaffolding’—l’échafaudage. What is necessary at some point in our lives, what is supporting us indeed, is what we may need to discard, at some further point, if we truly desire to fly using our own wings.

I just celebrated the 10th anniversary of my ‘discarding of the scaffolding.’ It occurred on Thanksgiving 2007 when I resigned from my lay Buddhist position. How mystical that I find myself walking the pathless path in France in the south of France a mere 10 years later!

I am grateful for what has unfolded in the past ten years and for the people and circumstances I encountered, either pleasant or challenging, who, at times, instilled doubt and made me reflect on my own cheminement (pathway). We need those folks and circumstances dearly in order to rekindle and refresh our faith in the Divine, in the Sacred—the One that lies within all of us, regardless of what we practice; the One that unites us All.

I also witnessed miracles along these two weeks; my brother saying ‘thank you’ twice to me; words I haven’t heard in his mouth for at least 20 years.

That is the miracle, dear Sisters and Brothers; the simple and ordinary miracle (as Brother Gerhard would say) of shining our Light and expressing our Love, in whatever circumstances and to whomever we meet in this lifetime.

Looking forward to gathering in this Sacred space once again this Thursday!

Fructifying our Talents

How can we fructify our talents, dear Ones?

and put them to good use for the sake of making this world of ours a better and brighter place?

The message I received this morning, through the Gospel of Matthew 25:14-30, the Parable of Talents, in the church of Saint Germain les Corbeil, France, was incredibly similar to the one I received 14 months ago in the same church and via the same Gospel.

How can it be that Destiny, or the Divine, if you will, brings us twice to the same locale where are meant to receive a message that transcends time and space—knowing that I found myself here today because of a death in our family two hundred miles away?

The message I heard 14 months ago was about our Light; shining it forth and high. Here is an excerpt of Matthew 5: 13-16:

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the Light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.

16 In the same way, let your Light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

The message that fell upon my ears this morning concerns our talents—or our Light, if you will—and the necessity to put them to good use, so that they can fructify, they can bring fruits, and nourish others.

The irony of this “nourishment metaphor” is that I came to church this morning with two boxes of cereals in my backpack; two boxes that I had bought for my brother at the local supermarket.

Once we reflect on the circumstances that propel us toward the place where we are meant to receive, we cannot but be blown away by the ‘limpidity’ of Source and the ‘generosity’ of Spirit.

We are One, dear Ones, in Unity Consciousness, and sharing our talents, as well as shining our Light, is our main reason for being.

Looking forward to being All of us together again on Thursday.
