(1) Kismet

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls” ~ Kahlil Gibran

“What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle.” ~ Rumi

Kismet definition, a souls journey:- destiny, fate. “what chance did I stand against kismet? synonyms: fate, destiny, fortune, providence, God’s will, what is written in the stars, one’s lot in life, karma, predestination, preordination, what is to come and what must be.” Now we can choose to accept this as the way of things or we can choose to live the life of separation. I chose the former for the latter serves not my soul, for my soul desired to ascend mount carmel. And though that quest may not be fulfilled in this incarnation, at the very least the quest has begun. “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. For there was one born of perfection yet condemned unto poverty. Whom even in his glory was under sentence of death from birth. A soul that lived by the great truth and for that was betrayed, abandoned, ridiculed and brutalised. Before dying in agony and misery that all souls might be saved. Rising again on the third day to show the world that the way of the light is eternal and that love is our only reason for being. That is the reason that all evolving souls descend into their inner darkness all part of letting go, allowing god, for to quote Father Bede Griffiths, “the darkness of love” frees the dualistic mind. And once we are at last free from the mind chatter of the dualistic mind, love flows freely within, for love is life. Indeed a journey where faith, hope and charity are no longer just words. But expressions of our innate being. For the souls journey is one of continuous evolution through service, dedication and essential clearing. Indeed a journey which is completely at odds with the illusion of mammon, for it is the divine call to awaken and to be one in all. “Like the generations of leaves, the lives of mortal men. Now the wind scatters the old leaves across the earth, now the living timber bursts with the new buds and spring comes round again. And so with men: as one generation comes to life, another dies away.” ~ Homer, The Iliad. Better then that; we serve our soul for our soul is eternal.

All Creation is governed strictly by the all-pervasive law of karma. No aspect of creation is outside of this law. It is a perfect, irrevocable law, for it is one of the laws, which are God.” ~ Dr. George King

There’s Always Light, There’s Always Love, There’s Always a Way, For God is Gracious and Good

The Journey:- It is a fact that there is a reason and a season for all things and we are all here but a brief moment in time. So as I reflect upon my life journey I embrace the truth that I have walked a path that few would dare to walk and I’ve conquered things that few would have the courage to overcome. For I have spent six decades at the table of total balance and had to come to terms with and accept both the greatest horrors and the greatest blessings that mortality can offer. Indeed a painful, yet liberating journey that has enabled me to clear much energetic detritus from deep within my akashic records. And for that I’m most grateful. For I will take with me every blessing I’ve earned, from every lesson that I’ve passed, which is the true measure of success, not the nonsensical grasping of the 3D illusion. So be worthy of all your blessings and keep a good and open heart. For if you do. The kingdom of god that sits deep within you will exalt you and everyone who experiences the power of your force. For that is the law of light and the love that knows no bounds. So breath it in, exhale it, share it and always nurture it, for when you do, your world and everyone’s world changes for the better. And that is the real magic that lights up the stars, indeed the magic of inana rakhma in all it’s true unbridled glory. For is it not so that our soul is a small point of light that is the god within and that each soul incarnates in many time lines working through the seven rings of our souls fall i.e. the crown of Saturn, the brow of Jupiter, the throat of Mars, the heart of the Sun, the solar plexus of Venus, the sacral of Mercury and the root of the Moon and rises all the way back up again into our ascensions. Indeed a divine and timeless process based upon our travels and travails through the cardinals, fixed and mutable constellations of Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. For we are all stardust and stardust we shall all return to, so the bottom line really must be; stop stressing, start loving and above all things live in the moment, for that is the way to experience a wondrous and blessed life. In essence an acceptance of working through our dark night of the senses and dark night of spirit, for 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. Therein and thereafter a soul committed to the divine dance of introspection and purification will seek that purification, understanding and greater perfection via the transformative journey through their interior castle or mansions one to seven in line with the mystical teachings of Saint Teresa of Ávila. And the journey is thus; First mansions – Though they are entering a state of grace, the souls are surrounded by sin and only starting to seek God’s grace through humility. Second mansions – The soul seeks a deeper relationship with the Father through daily thoughts of God and daily prayer. Third mansions – Here, love for God is growing so great that the soul develops an aversion to sin and a deepening desire to love and serve others. The fourth through seventh mansions are considered to be mystical or contemplative prayer. Fourth mansions – God begins to increase His role in the supernatural development of the soul. Fifth mansions – God deepens union with the soul, preparing it to receive the gifts of the Spirit. Sixth mansions – The soul spends increasing amounts of time torn between favors from God and from outside afflictions. Seventh mansions – The soul achieves clarity in prayer and a spiritual marriage with God. e.g. “Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, All things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices.” – Saint Teresa of Ávila. As such that is the depth and breadth of work our souls are prepared to undertake for; “There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.” ~ Homer, The Odyssey

“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
