This is the Day of Rapture…

By Xochi

This is the Day of Rapture…

To be in Bliss, Samadhi, Pure Joy.
This is the Day of Ecstasy…
Of a Heart full of Love for
All my Relations,
Divinely Unconditional,
Fully full so full of Love
there can be no room for
Judgment –  that impossible
Notion of Separation of Spirit.

This is the Day of Awe…
For the fathomless, infinite
Perfection that is Life,
YHVH, Being, Consciousness
With and without Form,
Always and Forever, Amen.

This is the Day of Being
Taken by Love, the Source
of All Life and Breath
and Expression…

And the Day to choose
Surrender to this only Truth,
To rise up out of our fear,
Our darkness and Death,
To rise up to meet our Love,

To leave behind all that
Does not serve our Love,
To give up our greed and
The insanity of lack.

This is the Day of Forgiveness,
The Day of Grace and
Compassion for our
Humanness, our confusion,

And all the mistakes we
Have made on this journey
Through Karma and Dharma
To understand it is All
Simply for this Moment,

To stand right here in these
Bodies and know that
This is the Day of Rapture,

This is the Day we are
One with God,
This is the Day we might
Awaken and see that
We are already in Heaven.

Our Mother Prayer

By Ileah Moore & Onya

Editor’s Note: When I first heard this prayer during a high mass for the Church of Mary Magdalene I sensed the importance of this version of The Lord’s Prayer from a feminine perspective.

Our Mother, Thou who art in the heart of Gaia,
May the holiness of Thy name awaken our remembering.
May the breath of Thy loving presence
Warm the hearts of all who wander homeless.
May the resurrection of Thy memory
Renew our faith eternally.

We receive this day Your nurturing substance
To fill our cup of need,
And implore Thee to forgive us for forgetting Thee.
We ready ourselves to receive Your blessings.
Mother, lead us toward the light
And the birth of the Christ within.

For Love is the Kingdom
Nurturing is the Power,
And Your wisdom with all merciful grace is the Glory
For all peoples, now and forevermore!

– AMEN.

Time & Truth

By Hajjar Gibran

Editor’s Note: This is excerpted verbatim from the Return of the Prophet by Hajjar Gibran in the spirit of the original The Prophet by his grandfather.

Longing to know the depths of life’s mystery, I passed my time in contemplation. On lonely walks into the night, amid the splattered moonlight beneath the shelter of the forest, I dreamt of the spirit world.

As I dreamt, the scent of a faraway wind gave hint of a revelation made more pure by my passage through darkness.

Gazing humbly into the limitless sky, I marveled to myself: “In these vast, magnificent heavens, who am I? From where have I come and by what means do I appear here? What better purpose have I than to marvel at my predicament in the ambiguity of time?”

The starlight whispered a message from the prophet’s invisible presence:

Time is the heartbeat of eternity, a soundless throb rippling through the depths of space. Mother Ocean performs her rhythmic dance with the moon, measuring time ceaselessly. Father Mountain knows time as aeons of precipitation carve canyons into his stubborn resistance.

Ticking perpetually on a seamless sequence of moments, time is the gatekeeper to all phenomena. And none can stay the hands thereof, as all things change.

Yet suspended on glistening threads of perception, between clouded memories of having been and a forever approaching horizon, you are the still witness of all that passes before you.

Every wonderful thing vanishes, every sweet feeling fades as you remain the unseen observer. And from your first thought, time is born.

In your search for truth, look beyond the lineal fields of time and logic. Climbing a conceptual ladder on rungs of reasoning, you will simply arrive where you have always been.

Truth is a paradoxical abyss that you stumble upon, and there it is, smiling at you, unadorned and as irrational as love.

In the quiet of your heart you can intuit the laws that scupt your life and shape your destiny. Shake off your preconceived opinions. Each moment you dip your cup into the river of creation it is fresh and news.

A truth uttered dwells but a moment upon your lips. And a truth remembered is not truth; it is yesterday’s reflection in the mirror of time. Concepts cast spells upon immaculate perception, reducing the miraculous to facts.

Listen to the serenity beyond the semblance of these thoughts. Release your mind from any mirage of meaning. Let your tongue taste more than the stale breath of knowledge drawn from books of another time and place.  Be a beacon of the truth that springs from the spontaneous impulse of your soul.

You are the Living Truth.

You are a ray of the Supreme Being who illuminates your world with consciousness, that you may delight in fields of dreams. With the first wink of the sun your daydream begins: you think you are awake, but your dream goes on in the sleep of forgetfulness.

Could you remember who you are, you would laugh with the gods at the absurdity of your seriousness. And know that before and after all this has come and gone – There you are as I am.

Soul Mate Love Story

By Linda Cotrufello

Author’s Note: This is in honor of My Beloved Johnny, who has inspired Me to new depths of Love, and assisted My expansion of who I truly Am. I Love You Johnny!

The day was sunny and filled with wonder. I decided to go for a walk down to the river where my dear friend Bella lived. I was about to knock on her front door when I was magnetically pulled toward the flower garden on the side of the house.

As I walked through the gate into her yard I noticed a hummingbird on the beautiful statue of the Madonna, and in that instant my perception shifted.

I felt magically altered and goose bumps covered my body. It was as if I was drawn into a vortex, where everything seemed still and the surroundings had a supernatural glow. I couldn’t lift my feet and I was mindfully aware of someone in the roses at the far corner of the yard, staring at theriver flowing by.

My mind was still but noticing was still happening. Everything seemed to be pointing me toward the figure of the man sitting quietly in the garden, his back to me. Suddenly the hummingbird flew over to the quiet one. It landed on the lavender to the right of him. Somewhere inside of me I could hear him calling in a still small voice. The vowels and consonants vibrated in my heart.

I continued to walk toward him . Again I heard the voice within singing with a combination of joy and sadness “Angelina, you are so missed.” My mind now struggled to comprehend the events seeming so “out of time.” Then my feet, as of on their own accord started moving, one in front of the other. The closer I came to the figure, the more my body would quiver. As I approached him from behind, getting closer and closer, I could feel my limbs shaking. I heard his voice.

To my ears his words seemed like a sacred flute calling me home. He said “you have come. I am so grateful.” I said “who are you?” He stared into my eyes and suddenly I was transported to another lifetime in Leumuria, where we had been together living in the sea. We had beautiful bodies
half-fish and half-man/woman. Passionately we wrapped our bodies together in sacred union shrieking blissfully.

Then, as quickly as I had been taken to the deep sea, we were in another dimension. We were light beings, with ethereal bodies, our children being born spontaneously of our thoughts and love was thick in this new world. Again we were transported to the top of the Andes. He a shaman and I his apprentice, with panthers at our feet. We went from scene to scene, lifetime to lifetime. As the visions faded and the garden reappeared, my eyes were filled with tears.

He moved toward me and touched my cheek. I could smell his scent and it drew me to him, my head resting on his heart. I once again looked in his eyes, smiling with remembrance. “You are he who I have been dreaming of for many nights. You always bring me a single white rose in my dream. Have you been looking for me long, my darling?” said I. “For all of my life, Beloved” he whispered. As we walked and talked I hadn’t noticed the time pass by or remember about the mission I was on to visit Bella that day.

But all seemed in perfect order and we spent the day roaming in nature, sometimes talking, sometimes not. We found ourselves embracing, weeping in ecstasy, thanking The Great One for bringing us together again. We took vows with the nature spirits as our witness, to love and honor, create a life together and support each others growth. As we kissed for the first time to seal our vows, a couple of geese passed over. They honked as if to give their blessing to our union. As the sun set behind the mountains we raised our voices in unison, chanting sacred sounds, reveling in God’s miracle.

Later, as we fell to sleep in each others arms that evening I heard him say “Life is grand, is it not my love?” Said I, as I kissed his heart “and so it is beloved!”

Breathing & Experiencing Love

Place your hands on your heart and breathe deeply into your heart feeling the love for the earth, life, and all that is precious to you. Take some time and get into a true place of love that goes beyond your thinking mind.

Start by experiencing love for yourself and all you have been through to get you to this point in life. And when you feel ready expand your heart and allow your love to flow out to our circle throughout the world. Let’s create a strong focused energy of love just simply pulsating throughout our global community.

Remember that you are part of life and that you cannot give love without receiving love. So as you breathe through your heart allowing love to flow through you remember to breathe in the love so that our circle is complete. The earth, our circle, and the rest of life will not receive your love if you cannot receive the love yourself.

And as you feel yourself part of that pulsation of love allow yourself to experience that flow of love going out to the earth and touching every living being. This includes the elements earth, air, water, and fire and all of life that lives in these elements – the spirit that lives in all things.

We do this to be in service to the planet in the same way we have been guided to for thousands of years. Allow yourself to sink into the true power of love that comes from beyond the thinking mind. Allow it to flow from the depths of your soul. This is true service!!

And when you feel the circle is complete and the unconditional love is flowing come back and continue to breathe deeply allowing the flow of love to continue and the flow of love to be received by you.  Continue this throughout the day into your New Year’s celebrations.

We give thanks for this circle, we give thanks to all of life, and we give thanks for our life!
