This is what should be done
By one who is skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech.
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied.
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
Wishing: In gladness and in safety
May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!

Love To All...

This night I am inconsolable as the world around me becomes to much to bare. Demons come out to crush my heart again. I feel hopeless and retreat to the safety of my beautiful garden.
I feel to lost to come back into the world so I watch from the other side. It is in these times of sorrow that I don't want your comforting touch. I just need to be left alone to sit quietly in the dark...

Please don't dream of me tonight fore you will not feel my comforting touch, nor my tender embrace of love. Just let me surround myself with shadows and let my heart break for one night. Don't try to save me when I can't be saved. Keep your tender words for another night when the tides of my heart have changed and my soul flows the other way...

But until that time remember I love you. You are the keeper of my heart but for the moment love is not my friend. Your tender touch and sweetest smile are like a poison to my aching soul. So let me be. Let me sit alone in the dark and find comfort in my forgotten world...

I will bandage my heart with solitude and dry my tears with time. I know that you will understand. I will return because I am hope, I will emerge from these shadows and once again sit on your pillow. I will watch that cherished smile glistening across your sweet tender face as you search for me in your dreams...

You will find me again...

Perfect Love

Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover
will require that you
continually have the subtlety of the very wise,
the flexibility of the child,
the sensitivity of the artist,
the understanding of the philosopher,
the acceptance of the saint,
the tolerance of the scholar
and the fortitude of the certain.

The Rainbow

Once upon a time, all the colours in the world started to quarrel; each claimed that she was the best, the most important, the most useful, the favourite...

Green said: “Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees, leaves — without me all the animals would die. Look out over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority.”

Blue interrupted: “You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is water that is the basis of life and this is drawn up by the clouds from the blue sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace you would all be nothing but busybodies.”

Yellow chuckled: “You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun.”

Orange started next to blow her own trumpet: “I am the colour of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the inner needs of human life. I carry all the most important vitamins. Think of carrots and pumpkins, oranges, mangoes and pawpaws. I don’t hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you.”

Red could stand it no longer. He shouted out: “I’m the ruler of you all, blood, life’s blood. I am the colour of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight of a cause. I bring fire in the blood. without me the earth would be empty as the moon. I am the colour of passion and love; the red rose, poinsettia and poppy.”

Purple rose up to his full height. He was very tall and he spoke with great pomp: “I am the colour of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs and bishops have always chosen me for I am a sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me — they listen and obey.”

Indigo spoke much more quietly than all the others, but just as determinedly: “Think of me, you all become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep waters. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace.”

And so the colours went on boasting, each convinced that they were the best. Their quarrelling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of brilliant white lightning; thunder rolled and boomed. Rain started to pour down relentlessly. The colours all crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.

Then Rain spoke:

“You foolish colours, fighting among yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest. Do you not know that God made you all? Each for a special purpose, unique and different. He loves you all. He wants you all. Join hands with one another and come with me. He will stretch you across the sky in a great bow of colour, as a reminder that he loves you all, that you can live together in peace a promise that he is with you, a sign of hope for tomorrow.”

And so whenever God has used a good rain to wash the world, He puts the rainbow in the sky, and when we see it, let us remember to appreciate one another.

The Part You Play

Whether we like it or not, we seem to be impacted by everything that happens around us. The neighbors mowing the lawn at 6am, a friend’s harsh words, a loved one’s actions; close-up impact as well as far-away impact, such as the war and death on a foreign land.

It seems inevitable and many of us, perhaps most or all of us, accept the impact and, in doing so, actually live what I call “altered lives.”The speculation about whether this reality is real, a hologram, a dream, or something else entirely is fascinating. But the bottom line is that, no matter what it is or isn’t, it’s where we are and it’s what we’ve got to work with. You see most, if not all, people would like to see life happening differently than it is. I’m one of those idealists that truly believe things CAN be different. But the responsibility falls upon every single individual.

Let’s just, for a moment, understand that everything in existence is energy. Energy has no barriers, no walls, no boundaries. With that truth, we realize that energy travels. In its travels, it impacts the other energy it touches. And so when you are reacting to the neighbors, another person’s words or actions, or the events happening upon the planet, you’re being impacted by energy. The energy that is uniquely you is being touched by energy outside of yourself.

Most of our reactions to outside energy (words and actions) are emotional. That means that for most of our time on Earth, we are in an emotional reaction to something outside of ourselves.When we think about things in this way, we begin to realize that this reality, again whether it’s a hologram or a dream or whatever, is making us who we are.

But … if we understand that this reality is not the purity of our own infinite soul in union with God, The Creator, or the name you personally give to All That Is, we realize that we are not actually living the truth of who we are. We are participating in the un-reality that is Earth-life to such a degree that our own personal truth remains unheard. A scary thought if you are one of those, like me, who make a constant effort to rise above the lifestyle of simply living in reaction and are making an effort to rise above the illusion and live in one’s own pure truth.

Let us suppose for a moment that, by emotionally reacting to everything we see and hear, we are in fact perpetuating an “un-reality.” What if the energy of our participation is fuel, the continuation of feeding exactly what we would like to change? The events of Earth-life must be sustained by the fuel of our interaction. If, as I believe, this is a consensual reality that we, as a group, are creating, then it stands to reason that our agreement to create things differently is absolutely possible. But how do we do that?

I believe we’re in the process of doing that. I believe that, as a human society, we’re beginning to understand that the reality we are seeing is the reality we ourselves have built. And if we built it, we have the ability to stop the negative flow of things and turn them into positives. In order to rebuild a society, it is necessary to “un-build” that which is presently accepted as “standard.” That means that a majority of society must agree that much of what is going on is not acceptable based upon the fact that what is going on does not look at all like the Grace of God, or even compassion and kindness and humanity. The question to ask is … does this look like Truth? (Truth being what the heart of God and our own souls would believe is the highest and best for all concerned.)

Things outside of ourselves are impacting each of us. In order to live in the peace we seek, we must first become the peace we seek. When we are emotionally impacted and reacting to external energies, we are not at peace. Our “un-peace,” the emotional energy we generate with our reactions, goes back into the common energy of Earth-reality, which means that we are contributing to that which we would like to see change. Do we then become automatons, robotically strutting through our time on Earth? No. But we DO learn to control our reactions and monitor our energy.

The energy of our own personal truth, the truth that lies within our union to our own infinite soul, holds the key to how we can live on Earth and be the change we want to see. As an infinite soul, we realize who we are and we understand that this lifetime is a temporary experience that we have chosen for myriad reasons. We also realize that the energy of this world lives within a far greater energy that we can perhaps agree to call the Body of God. If we step back and look at this one detail, we can easily see that the chaos of war and abuse and indifference, etc., are polluting what is meant to be pure.

However, if we take one step further away, we realize that every person is a pure soul, having a temporary human experience. The layers of energy that contain this human experience, due to their very nature, can cause people to forget the origin of soul. But, those layers of energy can be dissipated by the simple act of focusing upon the truth that lies outside of the layers. Within every person there is a thread of truth that connects us to our divine and infinite nature. That true nature holds the key to how each person can interact with every other person and situation from a “soul response,” as opposed to a human reaction.

When we interact with our daily lives with the energy of pure soul intention, rather than a knee-jerk emotional energy, we are placing divine energy into the chaos. The more divine energy we place into the chaotic, emotional energy of this ball of energy we call Earth-life, the more this reality will change.

To sum it up, by accepting that we are divine and infinite souls, and by focusing upon living that truth within ourselves, we are encouraging that vibration of energy here on Earth. The more divine energy we emit, the more the energy of Earth-life will respond. When we react to an outburst of anger or retribution by interacting with the experience from a place of loving, infinite soul, we do two things. We refuse to contribute more chaos to that which is already there. And we place calm, loving energy into the chaos.

This is not to say that the path of Earth-life will be strewn with roses simply because we have decided to change our way of interacting with it. On the contrary. This energetic form of life has existed for millions of years, thriving upon its way of being exactly what it is. Introducing different energy can cause resistance and anger as the old ways fight to remain what they are and defend their right to be exactly as they are.

I see this as a challenge, a test of each person’s strength to stand in his/her own truth. Will we fall back into the old ways when we meet resistance? Will we meet anger with anger? Will we resort to the old pattern and give as good as we get by throwing our strength back into the fray? Or will we be even stronger than that and refuse to participate in that which we wish to see changed?

Every person, no matter what they are or are not doing, is an infinite soul with the capacity to remember their own infinity and connection to The Divine. With patience and love, there is, a perfect opportunity waiting. An opportunity to recognize and interact with each other as the pure souls that we are.

Th Sixth Ishraq

The Sixth Ishraq is union and concord amongst the children of men. From the beginning of time the light of unity hath shed its divine radiance upon the world, and the greatest means for the promotion of that unity is for the peoples of the world to understand one another's writing and speech. In former Epistles We have enjoined upon the Trustees of the House of Justice either to choose one language from among those now existing or to adopt a new one, and in like manner to select a common script, both of which should be taught in all the schools of the world. Thus will the earth be regarded as one country and one home.

The most glorious fruit of the tree of knowledge is this exalted word: Of one tree are all ye the fruit, and of one bough the leaves. Let not man glory in this that he loveth his country, let him rather glory in this that he loveth his kind. Concerning this We have previously revealed that which is the means of the reconstruction of the world and the unity of nations. Blessed are they that attain thereunto. Blessed are they that act accordingly.

The Flower

"The flower upon closing opens into another heaven, another dimension of being. Compare this to the flower that closes at nightfall and opens in the morning at daylight. Upon closing the flower is sealed within the energy consciousness of a universe; a universe within a universe of energy."There are beautiful valleys, mountains, oceans, rivers, streams, trees, nature complete in harmony and balance, contained within this universe.

"There is a beauty to behold, magnificent, colorful energies of light, of life, of love. There are many flowers contained within the closed flower. There are many growths, many trees, many plants, seeds, fertile ground, all contained within the microcosm here within the flower. There is life eternal, ever-lasting. For you see, the flower never terminates internally. It simply changes into another vibrational form.

"When the flower opens one can sometimes perceive within this universe of energy and yet many do not perceive, or conceive of the universes contained within. This is so even when the flower is not closed. When the flower is open it emits, gives off a beautiful energy of light, a balance of life, harmony of love, divine energy.

"Perceive the beauty of life within each flower. For each flower has different petals, different shapes, different vibrations; yet all stem form vibrational light coming from the one source of energy, the energy of the Great Spirit of the universe.

"I leave you in the light that you are bathing in, the beautiful light of healing, the green light, the balance of all the lights of all the petals within yourselves. God bless you."

I Am Butter

Imagine butter on the crown of your head...
It slowly melts, and wherever it runs down over your body,
all stress and tension in the body disappears.
Very slowly the butter flows over your forehead,
all muscles relax...
It runs down over your eyes and cheeks...,
your whole face relaxes.
Along the back of your head... your neck... shoulders;
feel how much tension is there and let it go....
Arms and hands.... the chest.. belly....
Along the spine, the entire back relaxes...
your legs and feet...
The entire body is covered in golden butter
and you radiate health.
Go over the whole body again and breathe out
all the remaining stress.

I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention, I become the very thing I look at, and experience the kind of consciousness it has; I become the inner witness of the thing. I call this capacity of entering other focal points of consciousness, love; you may give it any name you like.

Love says "I am everything". Wisdom says "I am nothing". Between the two, my life flows. Since at any point of time and space I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I express it by saying that I am both, and neither, and beyond both.

Naked Dreams

Appearing naked in other people's dreams is a concept which occurred to me as I woke up this morning from a dream in which I was naked. It's about time someone added this important idea to our literary and cultural heritage.

Advantages to appearing naked in other people's dreams seem infinitely numerous, but I'll limit the possibilities. When appearing naked in other people's dreams, it's preferable to use one's "power" for good and not evil.

If you've ever been naked in a dream of your own, you're aware of how vulnerable you feel at the time -- especially if you're standing naked at a major intersection during rush hour. Wouldn't it be nice if someone came by to stand next to you? If there were another naked person standing next to you, you'd feel much more confident of standing naked in the middle of the street while automobile traffic swirls around you. You could even engage in conversation with your guest, and the act of engaging in a lighthearted discussion would distract you from your embarrassment.

Many married couples could also benefit from the experience of appearing naked in one another's dreams. At night, if you're more interested in sleep than in your libido, it would be an opportune time to ask your spouse to make a naked appearance in your dreams. You could engage in the glorious art of love-making while you're both sleeping heavily. Any anatomical problems suffered while awake could be corrected in the dream, and at the speed of thought (which is arguably faster than light).

Don't want kids? No money? No time? No desire to change diapers? No good schools in your area? No problem! Having sex with your spouse while dreaming is perfectly safe. A snowball in hell would have a better chance of conception, and you'll save bundles of your hard-earned money on contraceptive devices. Be creative if you'd really like an heir: Have a child in the dream, win the lottery shortly after the birth, hire a maid to change the diapers, become President of the city council and have a school built in your back yard. Hire as many police officers as you'd like to watch the school. If you're still feeling stressed from the financial and temporal burden of children, don't worry! You'll either wake up from the dream, or the child will turn 18 before the dreams ends.

While appearing naked in other people's dreams, don't underestimate the power of giving them visions. Visions are an effective way to get the other person to achieve goals you'd like to see him or her accomplish. Alternatively, selfish reasons are a driving force within humanity, and provide a good incentive for giving people visions.

Most people deserve a raise at work. Give your employer a vision. Appear naked in one of his dreams, and remember to properly announce yourself. First, inform him that they are having a vision. If you fail to do that, your success rate of giving people visions will not achieve the maximum potential.

After you've completed step one, proceed to request a raise for yourself. Don't be greedy. I'm sure your co-workers are equally deserving of a raise. Before you speak on behalf of your co-workers, however, make sure you've qualified yourself for a raise. After all, you're special, and there's only one you.

If your employer doesn't seem convinced he's having a vision, tell him something only you would know. Think back to any private conversations you've had with him. If that method of persuasion proves ineffective, fall back on threats. Don't worry about committing acts of violence -- you'll only be bluffing. If threats don't work, try performing miracles. Be creative though -- don't perform a miracle that's already been used in the Bible, Koran, Torah, or any other popular spiritual manuscript.

Are you the boss? Give your employees visions so they'll be more accepting of lay-offs, cuts in pay, or slave labor. If you break the law, however, be prepared to give visions to federal agents and any other law enforcement officials you may encounter.

Parents, are your children misbehaving? Are you unhappy with their grades? Is your teenager paying too much money for drugs? Apply similar principles for giving them visions, and soon you'll have the perfect child you've always dreamt about.

Anyone reading to this point has probably waited for an important question to be answered, "How do I appear naked in other people's dreams?" Deeply apologetic, I confess I don't have the answer. Had I been born a science fiction writer I could easily provide that crucial piece of information. I don't know when the instructions will become available, but when it does, you'll need this article for reference.

Please print a copy and retain it for your records.

Effort is crucial in the beginning for generating a strong will. We all have the Buddha nature and thus already have within us the substances through which, when we meet with the proper conditions, we can turn into a fully enlightened being having all beneficial attributes and devoid of all faults. The very root of failure in our lives is to think, "Oh, how useless and powerless I am!" It is important to have a strong force of mind thinking, "I can do it," this not being mixed with pride or any other afflictive emotions.
Moderate effort over a long period of time is important, no matter what you are trying to do. One brings failure on oneself by working extremely hard at the beginning, attempting to do too much and then giving it all up after a short time. A constant stream of moderate effort is needed. Similarly, when meditating, you need to be skillful by having frequent, short sessions; it is more important that the session be good quality than it be long.
When you have such effort, you have the necessary "substances" for developing concentration. Concentration is a matter channelizing this mind which is presently distracted in a great many directions. A scattered mind does not have much power. When channelized, no matter what the object of observation is, the mind is very powerful.
There is no external way to channelize the mind, as by a surgical operation; it must be done by withdrawing it inside. Withdrawal of the mind also occurs in deep sleep in which the factor of alertness has become unclear; therefore, here the withdrawal of the mind is to be accompanied by very strong clarity of alertness. In brief, the mind must have stability staying firmly on its object, great clarity of the object, and alert, clear, sharp tautness.

May My Dream Find You

We stand alone here in my dream, under an evening sky watching the world spin around us. Look close and you will see the faces of lost souls, fore they still search for the gate. They dance in the winds of change as they pour through the sands of time. Noone will seem to notice us standing here. They march on to the drums of a thousand fools. They who refuse to dream...

They turn away when I refuse to dance to their beat, whispering about me as if I couldn't hear. To them I am just a part of the scenery that remains unbroken. I am a challenge to the song that surrounds me. I refuse to be thrown away. So here I stand refusing to sing their song, watching as empty hearts walk in sadness...

They search for something that is missing in their lives. I have stood here for thousands of years, a symbol of the invisible child. My heart beat remains strong throughout eternity. I am still amazed at the beauty that surrounds me every day. You will never see sorrow in these blue eyes...

I will continue to scatter beautiful dreams to the winds of time. Hoping that they may trickle through the clouds and find you standing there with ageless eyes of a child...

I Am...

When I met my teacher, he told me: "You are not what you take yourself to be. Find out what you are. Watch the sense 'I am', find your real Self." I obeyed him, because I trusted him. I did as he told me. All my spare time I would spend looking at myself in silence. And what a difference it made, and how soon!

My teacher told me to hold on to the sense 'I am' tenaciously and not to swerve from it even for a moment. I did my best to follow his advice and in a comparatively short time I realized within myself the truth of his teaching. All I did was to remember his teaching, his face, his words constantly. This brought an end to the mind; in the stillness of the mind I saw myself as I am -- unbound.

I simply followed (my teacher's) instruction which was to focus the mind on pure being 'I am', and stay in it. I used to sit for hours together, with nothing but the 'I am' in my mind and soon peace and joy and a deep all-embracing love became my normal state. In it all disappeared -- myself, my Guru, the life I lived, the world around me. Only peace remained and unfathomable silence.

The souls of people, on their way to Earth-life, pass through a room full of lights; each takes a taper--often only a spark--to guide it in the dim country of this world. But some souls, by rare fortune, are detained longer--and have time to grab a handful of tapers, which they weave into a torch.

These are the torch-bearers of humanity-- it's poets, seers, and saints, who lead and lift the race out of darkness, toward the light. They are the law- givers and saviors, the light-bringers, way-showers and truth -tellers, and without them, humanity would lose its way in the dark.”

I've heard it said that we're born with only a few fears - like the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears we learn along the way. Like the fear of failure, the fear of rejection - even a fear of success. I believe our greatest enemy in life is fear, because fear keeps us from doing many of those things we would like to do that would make our life more complete and more enjoyable.

Doubt is the first cousin of fear and precedes it. We weren't born with doubt. Our habit of doubt has grown throughout our life. If we dwell on a doubt and give in to it, it then grows into fear.
You see doubt makes us ineffective, like a sea that is tossed and driven by the wind; every decision you make will be uncertain, as you turn first this way, and then that."If most of our fears and all of our doubts are learned along the way, then we can "unlearn" them by becoming masters of our thoughts.

"You see true courage is not the absence of fear, it's the mastery of fear." The people who live the life of their dreams have just as many fears as those who live miserable, unfulfilled lives - they just learned to master their fears instead of allowing their fears to master them.

Imagine how your life would be if you desired something, disdained it, and then got more of it. That would be a destructive cycle, would it not? If you received more of what you hated, your life would be filled with whatever you hated. It would be unpleasant to say the least. But if your life fills only with what you are grateful to receive, then that would be a joyous existence — assuming you eventually learn to enjoy what you want...

You can begin by sitting down in a comfortable position, closing your eyes. Sit with your back erect, without being strained or overarched.

Take a few deep breaths, relax your body. Feel your energy settle into your body and into the moment.

See if certain phrases emerge from your heart that express what you wish most deeply for yourself, not just for today, but in an enduring way. Phrases that are big enough and general enough that you can ultimately wish them for all of life, for all beings everywhere.

Classical phrases are things like, "May I live in safety. May I be happy. May I be healthy. May I live with ease."You can gently repeat these phrases over and over again, have your mind rest in the phrases and whenever you find your attention has wandered, don't worry about it. When you recognize you've lost touch with the moment, see if you can gently let go and begin again.

May I live in safety, be happy, be healthy, live with ease.

Call to mind somebody that you care about--a good friend, or someone who's helped you in your life, someone who inspires you. You can visualize them, say their name to yourself. Get a feeling for their presence, and then direct the phrases of lovingkindness to them. May you live in safety, be happy, be healthy, live with ease.

Call to mind someone you know who's having a difficult time right now. They've experienced a loss, painful feeling, a difficult situation. If somebody like that comes to mind, bring them here.

Imagine them sitting in front of you. Say their name. Get a feeling for their presence and offer the phrases of lovingkindness to them."May you live in safety. Be happy. Be healthy, live with ease."Think of someone who plays some role in your life, some function that you don't know very well, that you don't have a particular feeling for, or against. Maybe the checkout person at the supermarket where you shop, the gas-station attendant, somebody that you see periodically. If someone like that comes to mind, imagine them sitting in front of you, and offer these same phrases of lovingkindness to them.

May you live in safety. Be happy. Be healthy, live with ease.

We connect into these phrases, aiming the heart in this way, we're opening ourselves to the possibility of including, rather than excluding, of connecting, rather than overlooking, of caring, rather than being indifferent. And ultimately, we open in this way to all beings everywhere, without distinction, without separation.

May all beings live in safety, be happy, be healthy, live with ease.

All people, all animals, all creatures, all those in existence, near and far, known to us and unknown to us. All beings on the earth, in the air, in the water. Those being born, those dying.

May all beings everywhere live in safety, be happy, be healthy, live with ease.

You feel the energy of this aspiration extending infinitely in front of you, to either side, behind you, above and below. As the heart extends in a boundless way, leaving no one out, may all beings live in safety, be happy, be healthy, live with ease.

And when you feel ready, you can open your eyes and see if you can bring this energy with you throughout the day.

The Moon will slip into dreamy Pisces tonight, activating our fantasies and increasing our need for meaningful spiritual connection. Mercury the Messenger joins shadowy Pluto on Saturday, sending our thoughts deep into the unconscious to uncover buried metaphysical treasure...
You see we cannot know in advance what lurks in the dark, yet the exploration can prove transformational. We need not be afraid, for increasing the light of awareness can help us find our way...

It's magic and it's free
It's not in a prescription
It's not in an IV.

It punctuates laughter,
It sparkles in our tears,
It simmers under sorrows,
And dissipates our fears.

Do you know what Hope is?
It's reaching past today,
It's dreaming of tomorrow,
It's trying a new way,

It's pushing past impossible
It's pounding on the door,
It's questioning the Answers,
It's always seeking more.

It's rumors of a breakthrough,
It's whispers of a cure,
A roller coaster ride
Of remedies, unsure.

Do you know what Hope is?
It's candy for the soul,
It's perfume for the spirit,
To share it, makes you Whole.

12 Gifts

Once upon a time, a long time ago, when princes and princesses lived in far away kingdoms, royal children were given twelve special gifts when they were born.

Twelve wise women of the kingdom, or fairy godmothers as they were often called, traveled swiftly to the castle whenever a new prince or princess came into the world. Each fairy godmother pronounced a noble gift upon the royal baby.

As time went on, the wise women came to understand that the twelve royal gifts of birth belong to every child, born anywhere at anytime. They yearned to proclaim the gifts to all children, but the customs of the land did not allow that.

One day when the wise women gathered together they made this prophecy: Some day, all the children of the world will learn the truth about their noble inheritance. When that happens a miracle will unfold on the kingdom of Earth.

Here is the secret they want you to know.

At the wondrous moment you were born, as you took your first breath, a great celebration was held in the heavens and twelve magnificent gifts were granted to you.

The first gift is STRENGTH. May you remember to call upon it whenever you need it.

The second gift is BEAUTY. May your deeds reflect its depth.

The third gift is COURAGE. May you speak and act with confidence and use courage to follow your own path.

The fourth gift is COMPASSION. May you be gentle with yourself and others. May you forgive those who hurt you and yourself when you make mistakes.

The fifth gift is HOPE. Through each passage and season, may you trust the goodness of life.

The sixth gift is JOY. May it keep your heart open and filled with light.

The seventh gift is TALENT. May you discover your own special abilities and contribute them toward a better world.

The eighth gift is IMAGINATION. May it nourish your visions and dreams.

The ninth gift is REVERENCE. May you appreciate the wonder that you are, and the miracle of all creation.

The tenth gift is WISDOM. Guiding your way, wisdom will lead you through knowledge to understanding. May you hear its soft voice.

The eleventh gift is LOVE. It will grow each time you give it away.

The twelfth gift is FAITH. May you believe.

Now you know about your twelve gifts of birth.

But there is more to the secret that the wise women knew.

Use your gifts well and you will discover others, among them a gift that is uniquely you.

May you see these noble gifts in other people.

Share the truth and be ready for the miracle to unfold as the prophecy of the wise women comes true.

Delaney Marie Angel

If everything about her is delightful

Her sparkling eyes and special little smile

If shes a charmer in a little dress or diaper

You see she has her own endearing style

If she's an angel with a little hint of mischief

Exploring her small world in her own way

If she can steal your heart with hugs and kisses

And bring a touch of laughter to your day

If she grows even dearer every minute

And fills your thoughts with joy your whole day through

If she grows faster than you can imagine

But always stays a little girl to you

If she's an extra-special ray of sunshine

Who warms your life and brightens up your world

Its know wonder, for there isn't any treasure

More precious than our own, sweet baby girl

May You Be

May you be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. May you be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. May you be a lamp unto those who walk in darkness, and a home to the stranger. May you be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. May you be a breath of life to the body of humankind, a dew to the soil of the human heart, and a fruit upon the tree of humility...

1) Do not bottle up emotions. When you are happy, run and jump and dance! When you are angry, growl and grunt and snap at the people around you! Bunn finds that a swift, hard chomp on someone else's ankle, leg, or arm is therapeutic for relieving anger, regardless of whether that particular person was at fault for your bad mood. Don't worry; they'll forgive you, since you're so darned cute. Don't worry about hurting their feelings. Your feelings are much more important.

2) Live in the moment. Do not hold simmering grudges. If the person you're angry with comes with a peace offering of fresh cilantro, by all means go for it with gusto! This is easier for Bunn than for us humans, since he has a four-minute memory span, but we can try. Forgetting and forgiving is much easier than resisting fresh cilantro to be spiteful!

3) Don't worry about your looks. While it is important to keep clean and fresh-smelling (groom, groom, groom!), it is not important to make sure that you only sit in graceful positions, and that people only see your "good" side. Feel free to flop out on the floor and let your belly hang out.

4) Don't worry about what other people think of you or your habits. Feel free to inhale your food instead of eating it neatly. Also, feel free to take naps in your litterbox.

5) If you want attention, don't pout that you're being ignored. Just walk up to the person in question and shove your cute nose in his or her face.

Remember--you are irresistable!

What Is Metta?

Metta is an attitude of recognizing that all sentient beings (that is, all beings that are capable of feeling), can feel good or feel bad, and that all, given the choice, will choose the former over the latter.

Metta is a recognition of the most basic solidarity that we have with others, this sharing of a common aspiration to find fulfillment and escape suffering.

Metta is empathy. It's the willingness to see the world from another's point of view: to walk a mile in another person's shoes.

Metta is the desire that all sentient beings be well, or at least the ones we're currently thinking about or in contact with. It's wishing others well.

Metta is friendliness, consideration, kindness, generosity.

Metta is an attitude rather than just a feeling. It's an attitude of friendliness.

Metta is the basis for compassion. When our Metta meets another's suffering, then our Metta transforms into compassion.

Metta is the basis for shared joy. When our Metta meets with another's happiness or good fortune, then it transmutes into an empathetic joyfulness.

Metta is boundless. We can feel Metta for any sentient being, regardless of gender, race, or nationality.

Metta is the most fulfilling emotional state that we can know. It's the fulfillment of the emotional development of every being.

It's our inherent potential. To wish another well is to wish that they be in a state of experiencing Metta.

Metta is the answer to almost every problem the world faces today.
Money won't do it.
Technology won't do it.
Metta will.

I Am Passion

I am consumed with wanting but for what it is uncertain. I am still alive but a fire demon lives within me. The demon is scratching and screaming, trying to claw its way out. My blood is poisoned with its passion. I am restless, confined in my cage, with just enough space to pace. Back and forth, back and forth, it plans to escape this world. I know it will come, the day will come when it will run free...

Only one thing will bring peace and cease its torturing pleas. I have told you the name. It roars in the dark void of my mind, beckoning come find me. I look inside to search for the meaning of my existence. I demand definition of my destiny. Please tell me now...

I am a living torch one cannot extinguish. I will not be incinerated by the worlds tempestuous flames of hate. The only relief from its wrath, is found in your arms. In your presence, it eases, the longing subsides. Dare you let me close to scorch you with desire. Dare you be my brave knight and quench the fire of my soul....

Death Song

Live your life that the fear of death
Can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about his religion.
Respect others in their views
And demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life,
Beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long
And of service to your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day
When you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting
Or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place
Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light,
For your life, for your strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason to give thanks,
The fault lies in yourself.
Touch not the poisonous firewater
That makes wise ones turn to fools

And robs the spirit of its vision.
When your time comes to die, be not like those
Whose hearts are filled with fear of death,
So that when their time comes they weep and pray
For a little more time to live their lives over again
In a different way.
Sing your death song,

And may you die like a hero going home.

May those who love us, love us.

And those who don't love us,

May God turn their hearts;

And if He doesn't turn their hearts,

May He turn their ankles,

So we will know them by their limping.

Intuition is the ability to know without rational interference.
It speaks to the heart of the matter.
It is your birthright, truth detector,
buried treasure,
life guide and messenger...
Close your eyes...

We are the result of our own past actions
and our own present doings.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery.
We create our own Heaven.
We create our own Hell.

L is for Light.
The truth that you are a divine being of Light.
Perfect now.
O is for Obedience.
Obeying the laws of nature and understanding the laws of karma.
V is for Victory.
I am a victorious soul and success is my birthright.
E is for Eternity.
It has no time.
Love is Eternal.
Love is energy,
a force so powerful
that all the darkness of the mind melts away.
