“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.” St Francis of Assisi
“We are like flowers, glorious for one brief moment, before our setting sun calls us back home, so allow calmness to guide your heart and light the way for others, that they may feel their own innate calmness too” ~ Barry Hardy
Each morning we awaken and are reborn again dear reader and each evening we all of us surrender to the darkness and die again so to speak. In truth there is absolutely nothing complicated about that very natural cycle, save for our domestications which prevent us from aligning with that truth and all the great truths. Indeed domestications that are utterly perverse and grotesque acts of separation inculcation. Where the lie of separation propagates nothing more than; fear and stagnation. For the lie of separation is designed to enslave all souls in the samsara of karma. But you know, it isn’t supposed to be that way and all any mortal needs to do is listen to the timeless call deep within. Yes it may be painful embarking upon ones heroes journey, for there will be loss and much suffering along the way. Still the suffering and loss are worth it, for the gain is much greater. For at the setting of your sun you will have truly come to know the great truths, therein transforming your souls journey forever. For it is so that an awakening soul embraces all experiences with; “glory from upon high“. Knowing that it’s the response to each experience that truly matters whilst incarnated as a mortal. Not the experience itself. That is the way of the souls eternal journey and its open to all, indeed; a choice. Unlike the downward spiral of separational lies which is nothing more than the imposed construct of mans original fall et al. But that original fall doesn’t need to condemn us for all souls instinctively know how to truly step into the light whilst respecting the shadow. For all souls know how to transform hate into love and lack into abundance. For the narrow path that leads to the narrow gate has always been a rite of passage for all souls. So choose wisely, for the souls journey is to crave wholeness with God. But that God is not the old man with a long white beard sitting on a cloud. For the God that all souls crave as they evolve through the love of love, is the ineffable God, the God of no-thing and everything. Indeed the God of Agape.
So today is another glorious day through which you have awakened and been reborn again and because of that grace, today is another opportunity for you to evolve and come to know that which was hidden from you. For it doesn’t matter how difficult your mortality currently is or has been and it doesn’t matter what you’ve faced or currently face, for all that really matters is truly, truly connecting with the glow the resides deep within you. Therein; there’s never ever been a better thing to do today and all of your tomorrows than reach out and connect with the spark of life. Which is the divinity of your soul that has always been within you. Within me? O yes within you, for we are all souls living a mortal experience and how do I know that? Well; during my current journey of soul, I’ve traveled, studied and worked far and wide on many subjects and in many environments too. Commencing as a young man I journeyed through many diverse aspects of engineering from first principle syntax, to business strategy and academia. All whilst having to undertake great explorations through many forms of physical, emotional and spiritual trauma. A journey through theology, shamanism, mysticism and an extensive array of healing modalities. An incredible journey through which I gained a brief glimpse from time to time of the great truths amidst suffering beyond normal understandings. All part of my own hero’s journey. A journey that brought forth a greater inner peace and knowing that each and every day we all of us should bow our heads and offer thanks for our strong and courageous body. Thanks to our beautiful open heart that serves continually. Our eyes that can see the grace and suffering in all things. Our ears that listen for and to the subtlest of prompts and our wisdom that transcends our own mortal sufferings. For if we do the universe will exalt us now and forever more. From our spring until the autumn of our fading glow. For we are all but a brief moment in time, yet it’s not who we think we are or who we’ve been told that we are that is important. It’s how we live our lives, it’s how we search for truth, it’s how we serve and bring joy and hope to all hearts in need. For to truly live is to embrace selflessness and to begin to raise ones vibration. As such death and rebirth are so much more than moments in time. For they are indeed one in the same, the product of how we live from our heart and how our soul evolves. For that is to truly live selflessly and to be at one with all things. For as written in Genesis: And God said, “Let there be light, and there was light. And God saw the light, and it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.” A very clear message to all beings, love is life, so allow the love of light into your heart. For all mortality’s are finite whilst the souls journey is eternal, so embrace the journey of sun to son and son to sun, and you too will come to know the true power and truth of love. For love is eternal and our only reason for being. “The first time, ever I saw your face, I thought the sun rose in your eyes, And the moon and the stars, Were the gifts you gave, To the dark, and the endless skies My love, To the dark, and the endless skies.” ~ Ewan MacColl. Its all all about the love, for it’s always, always been about the love and beyond the illusion all souls know that. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” ~ Romans 8:28. Still “A man can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it, this must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him who knows.” For “Without struggle, no progress and no result. Every breaking of habit produces a change in the machine.” Therein “A man may be born, but in order to be born he must first die, and in order to die he must first awaken.” So “A ‘sin’ is something which is not necessary.” ~ George Gurdjieff. For in truth; “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” and “You will only lose what you cling to.” for “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” therein “It is better to travel well than to arrive.” ~ Gautama Buddha. For there are better highs on the souls journey than getting drunk, there are better highs than taking drugs, there are better highs than cycles of perpetual drama and those highs are Love, Love, Love and alignment with God. So “Seek ye not riches from others nor acceptance from others, nor seek ye revenge or hardship upon others either. That is not the souls way. Instead seek ye the beauty deep within and you will truly come to know. The true depth of your timeless abundance and your souls ability to allow, forgive and evolve. For they are divine blessings which your soul will carry for all of eternity. Whereas mammon is finite albeit the instigator of much karma.” ~ Barry Hardy. Therein; commit to the former, not the latter and “In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic (one who has experienced God for real) or nothing at all.” ~ Karl Rahner. For when you dance the dance of light you immediately begin to truly understand that; “Dancing is an innately spiritual affair. It reaches beyond words to the essence of beauty. Its height is Divinity and its depth is humanity. It is the ever moving balance between independence and intimacy. All the while, it reaches into the great Beyon.” ~ Donna Goddard. You see; “The soul must first realize that something seems to be missing before it can, one day, know that nothing was missing at all.” ~ Donna Goddard. Indeed a divine revelation where each soul finds peace in true alignment. Pray you may enquire how does that happen or indeed begin to unfold and pray what is the innate call? Well; “Somewhere along the way, there develops within the soul a yearning that can no longer be ignored, a craving for the great love affair. We feel it drawing ever closer. It is the greatest of them all. It cannot fail. It is all-consuming. It is incomparable. It is the love affair with our own true nature and the source from which it comes. The desire is in all of us but, more often than not, it is ignored for other interests. We wrestle with each interest, trying to make it work, growing with each adventure until the light has grown bright enough for us to reach for it.” ~ Donna Goddard. For; “Everything you’ll ever need to know is within you; the secrets of the universe are imprinted on the cells of your body.” Therein; “Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.” For; “There are no ordinary moments.” ~ Dan Millman. For all is the; great unfolding journey of soul, through which the true “I” truly comes to know that; “The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.” ~ Meister Eckhart. “For every man’s soul is in a spiritual body after it has cast off the material coverings which it carried about in the world.” ~ Emanuel Swedenborg, Divine Love and Wisdom. So use your time well, as if each day we’re your last, never forgetting to dance the dance of love by day and by night. Because all to soon your current journey of soul will be over and then you and; “I will go east and go west, To the places from whence came, The moon and the sun, When the moon and the sun will go, And the young man, With his reputation behind him, I will go wherever he came from, The young man with his reputation behind him”. ~ Clannad. So embrace your journey of soul and try to always to be present, “Sun to Son and Son to Sun”. For love is life, love is light and love is your eternal freedom. Therein be love and “Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness.” For “The soul always knows what to do to heal itself.” ~ Caroline Myss. In conclusion: during your salvational journey of soul. Look not to conformity with secular nuances, dogma or the ramblings of fallen man for your inner light. Better that you look with appropriate knowings deep, deep within, embracing the scared nature of all things and everything by opening your heart to loves timeless vibration. For through such love the atman falls in love again with the sacred nature of mysticism which is the sacredness of god. But why is any of this so important during the journey of soul? Well its simply this; to evolve and illuminate the way for others all souls must disconnect from the nonsense of mammon and reconnect with the cosmic consciousness. Why what difference does it make? Well; mammon is stagnation indeed the place of the illusionary hell of suffering, illness and the self-limitation of decay, whereas the cosmic consciousness is agape and the origin of your stardust. Therein make that step change happen today, for within the current paradigm there may not be a better tomorrow. So be that change and love all of it for; “There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” ~ C.S. Lewis. Now and all that being said in perhaps far to many words. How would a soul truly know that it is on the cusp of awakening to the dance of dances? Well a mortal could read as much as it felt drawn to do so about the quickening between the symbiotic mortal state and the chrysalis state of soul activation and awakening. But in truth awakening is simply the acceptance of a seemingly alternative state. It’s not a sensation of the five senses and yet it is and so much more, for it’s the melting and forging of love in all it’s glory. Indeed that place where hearts meet and minds communicate effortlessly and all sentients know that place for it is that place of ultimate of balance. Yes balance in the chaos, balance in the shadow, a state of balance that is indefinable and the reason it’s so indefinable is because it’s not of this world. That balance, the journey of soul, is noetic and everything right now. For; “We are not victims of our genes, but masters of our fates, able to create lives overflowing with peace, happiness, and love.” ~ Bruce H. Lipton, The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness. Therein allow the innate to breath freely within your very being and embrace the great truth that each soul has its own unique soul plan on the journey of souls. But why is this important? Well; “When clients tell me how much they suffered from the actions of family members, my first question to their conscious mind is, “If you had not been exposed to this person as a child, what would you now lack in understanding?” It may take a while, but the answer is in our minds. There are spiritual reasons for our being raised as children around certain kinds of people, just as other people are designated to be near us as adults.” ~ Dr Michael Newton, Journey Of Souls. For; “Home awaits us all; a home where only pure, unconditional love, compassion and harmony exist side by side. Recognize that you are currently in school, Earth school; and when you graduate, that loving harmony awaits you. Some of our classes are exhilarating, some are daunting and for most of us, there is a diverse mixture of both. But know that each experience you have during your current life is enabling your personal, soul growth. No matter what, when school’s out you will return home to the unconditional love that’s there waiting for us all.” ~ Dr Michael Newton.
So before you return home, dive into the seat of your soul and explore the diamond mine that you truly are for when you do “Eventually, you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is.” ~ Gary Zukav. Therein; be kind to yourself and to others, respect all beings, live in alignment with all nature and be love, by falling head over heels in love with the; sacred dialogue of “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit” ~ Luke 23:46. For “To be in love with Life is to be in touch with our spiritual essence. It is to see beauty and loveliness wherever we go. It is to see the glow of divinity in all those around us.” ~ Donna Goddard, Love’s Longing. Thereafter; you too will come to know as you navigate your souls journey down here on planet earth which at times can be an almighty grind. That when things seem to be at their very worst and you feel unable to continue. When you’re being attacked, judged and criticised by all and sundry. When people are ignoring you, turning away and stirring up all the monsters deep within your ego. That scream; shame, fear, guilt, you’re not worthy, you’re not a good person and you’ve done something to offend them. Know that the aspect of you that is suffering indeed the one on the metaphorical cross, is not the one that moves into greater glory. For the one on the cross is dying for you from a place of pure love. So thank all those who play their part in your energetic crucifictions. For much greater glory is being realised and brought forward into your heart by the birthing pains of your soul healing journeys. So love those journeys and know that all things are as they need to be. For that is; the glory of agape.
Loving The Journey:- imagine that place, your parents give you a car and you awaken and you have a sense of who you are and complete freedom. You and that car undertake many journeys and experience many things that change all of your perceptions. Initially you don’t mind the frequent repairs, because you’re so in love with that car, but as the years pass perhaps even decades. The car can no longer do what it was once able to do and the repairs take longer and become more complex and in that place the sense of freedom is lost. Until that is with a heavy heart a deep realisation dawns that it is indeed time to bid your car farewell. A state where your love is stronger as is your gratitude too. But it is time, time for change, time for transition, time to let go and embrace your deep inner knowing that your car aka body is a finite modality, whereas your soul is infinite. As such there is absolutely nothing to fear in this journey. For it is a journey that is as old as time itself. Indeed a journey that all souls have made many times and each time god has all of it covered. So remember the journey of souls is for living, laughing and loving. For; “See, I have set before thee this day life and good and death and evil.” ~ Deuteronomy 30:15 KJV. Now looking at that extract objectively, better then that we choose a good life and in that choosing always honour our body too, for without that we defile the love of god. Thereafter it’s equally important that we live the life that god created for his glory, loving all of that glory. For even though the journey be good or indeed hard depending upon what we’re here to learn. It is sobering to note that the state of incarnation that we know as our mortality is in truth incredibly brief. Whereas the journey of souls is an infinite journey with endless opportunities and possibilities. Which at times is difficult to comprehend. As such all seekers must step away from all self limiting left brain fixations which serve not their soul and align with what truly is, for what truly is, is god. Today, tomorrow, now and always, god is love. So; “Look to the stars and know that they are your home, not here. Look to the stars and let go of all your mortal woes. Look to the stars and praise the lord god almighty daily and with all of your being. Look to the stars for all of the answers, to all of your questions. Look to the stars; deep, deep within, for that is mysticism.” ~ Barry Hardy

“Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.” ― Baha’u’llah
