To Own The Sceptre of Power is to Align With The Philosophers Stone
“What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle.” ~ Rumi
Introspection is the great key and process that facilitates whole being healing for that is the seat and home of the hallowed philosopher’s stone. So it was, so it is and so it will always be, for in changing our inner world, our outer world changes too. As such and during our long healing journeys we must asked daily as our lessons and learnings unfold. Do I thrive on this gut-wrenching darkness? and the answer will always comes back. Yes for that is the place of your learnings. So embrace the truth that you have come to know that introspection and self-alchemy is the only way to raise your vibration. For if you hadn’t come to know yourself through deep introspection, fearful transfixation would have eventually destroyed you. Whereas and through your selfless love you have aligned with the grace, light and growth that is your true potential. That is not to say the journey is ever over for we come to know that we must continually seek guidance from the universe deep within us, for to align with the philosophers stone is to align with all things. As such the silent knowing will always ask us to go deeper and more. Until that is we’ve worked through our own dark nights of the senses and dark nights of our spirit, only then will we truly come to know that we are on the narrow path heading towards the narrow gate and back to God. For the only way back to our innate state of love and peace is “In darkness and secure, By the secret ladder, disguised—oh, happy chance!—In darkness and in concealment, My house being now at rest”- St John of The Cross.
“The moment you have succeeded in manufacturing love out of prana, you are free.” ~ Swami Vivekananda

I make no secret of the difficulty of my healing journey and whilst my journey does not define me. It certainly burnished me and because of that my reward is much greater understanding. That said and during one of my more difficult shamanic initiation and healing periods my celtic root energy rose up and roared into my very being with all the rage and transformative energy of the mythical banshee. And in that moment the stench of death was everywhere and the intangible became malleable as my visionary inner wisdom eloquently stilled my mind and opened my heart. That said; I starkly remember during that incredibly difficult and utterly traumatic period that I listened to Clannad’s theme from Harry’s Game several hundred times. Until that was the rise and fall, birth and death wisdom within its melancholic lyrics resonated with every aspect of my mind, body and soul. At which point I was blown away by the majesty of it all and as a mark of respect for the grace in and of my own initiation healing journeys and all the wonderfully talented work that Clannad do. I’ve added this link from their official YouTube site which I hope you will enjoy. All I ask is that you please do respect all Clannads rights and copyrights for this video. For those rights remain with their respective owners, producers and distributors et al and not with the author and publisher of this blog and I trust all post readers will respect those copyrights. Translation of the lyrics to Clannad’s Theme from Harry’s Game, “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”.
“Only the strongest of souls can bring light into darkness, wisdom into lacking and love to replace hate, for they have mastered the lesson of mortal suffering and have risen to the challenge of service.” ~ Orion Bright Star
”Seek the light, trust the light, be the light and ask the light to always be with you” ~ 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
