The Rising of the Sun: In the rising of the sun, and in its going down, we remember him.

February 1, 2020

picture from http://www.lifeisgodsnovel.wordpress.com

In The Rising of the sun, and in its going down, we remember him.
In the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, we remember him.
In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember him.
In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer, we remember him.
In the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember him.
In the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember him.
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember him.
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember him.
When we have joys we yearn to share, we remember him.
So long as he lived, we, too, shall live, for he is now a part of us, as we remember him.

A great tribute. Thanks, m #

Christmas message rings powerfully

I (We) Must Not Hate!

People going to church this Christmas believe God is a powerful force for good in the world and he, or she, sometimes works in mysterious ways. Christians, whose faith is founded on the redemptive event of Christ’s crucifixion, can readily believe that good can grow from tragedy.

New Zealand this year has experienced a most appalling tragedy. The slaughter in March of New Zealand Muslims at prayer in two Christchurch mosques had a profound effect not just on this country but the world.

Diary of an Aesthete

A whole new day has dawned in my life!
And I couldn’t be more grateful, more alive, or more in love.

This most recent ‘journey’ has brought me so much peace and illumination. I feel so blessed to be alive, to be given another chance to roam this earth and carry on my journey as a seeker, a student of growth, inspiration and healing! What a blessing to yet again witness so many changing skies, to connect and learn from so many ‘teachers’ on the Road, and to once again be given strong guidance and direction for the next steps in the Global Pilgrimage of my Life on Earth.

It is an exciting time to be alive, for me. From the ashes of my past deeds and incarnation, I have been reborn… Hallelujah!

Those of you who have followed this blog for some time, may or may not know that…
