Love and Forgiveness, That is The Journey of All Evolving Souls
“What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle.” ~ Rumi
I incarnated in this life time as a vibrant Cumberland lad into an impoverished setting and therein; was implored all part of my souls healing to undertaken a journey through much abuse, hate and prejudice. That said; shortly after my incarnation I became a carer and a healer for those who should have been caring and protecting me from harm. As such and because of this new journey of soul, I 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. Each the derivative of many existential crises that unfolded over six difficult decades. An incredible journey through which I gained a brief glimpse of the great truth, amidst suffering beyond normal understandings. Wow, what journey, what a journey, what a journey, Amen.
Mortality is a heady mix of complex journeys each one playing their part in shaping every aspect of our understandings. Indeed perceptions that are changed forever once we embark upon our own deeply personal multi layered healing journey. For through that journey we experience both sides of the great balance. Indeed the very dark and the very light and because of that we all of us gain a much greater understanding of the burden of the illusion. For lighter souls we become within the temple of Solomon. That said an extremely difficult aspect of our mortal journey is rising above the suffering of our ego and moving back into grace. For only in grace can we truly forgive ourselves and the perceived or actual actions of others upon us, for it is so that it is the grace of love and forgiveness that sets all souls free. How do we know when we’ve truly moved into forgiveness? Well it’s easy to authentically know that in truth. For when we were are being targeted by hate and we do not react from the low vibration of defence. When we do not react from that place of self-righteousness and feel only compassion for our attacker. Then and only then do we know that we’re moving back into the grace of love and forgiveness that is enshrined in Matthew 5:38-48 Jesus said to his disciples: “You have learned how it was said: Eye for eye and tooth for tooth. But I say this to you: offer the wicked man no resistance. On the contrary, if anyone hits you on the right cheek, offer him the other as well; if a man takes you to law and would have your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone orders you to go one mile, go two with him. Give to anyone who asks, and if anyone wants to borrow, do not turn away.” “You have learnt how it was said: You must love your neighbour and hate your enemy. But I say this to you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you; in this way you will be sons of the father in heaven et al.” So how does a fragile mortal with an innately active ego move from the pain of ego and into love and forgiveness? Simple; by the praxis of prayer, by falling in love with the god within, by accepting that we’re all so much more than carbon and water and embracing the fact that “this as in I, shall pass too.” It’s really not complicated at all, it’s simple and yet the very nature of its simplicity is what truly stirs ones soul. Such that once the work begins, all things change for ever and we once again begin to realign ourselves back with the stars, for there is a reason and a season for all things and all men. Such that when we take our last breath and return back to the stars, our measure will not be measured by how much we hated and how much we refused to forgive. It will be measured by how much we loved, how much we served and how much we learned. For the university of planet earth is a most difficult university, for it is the university of soul healing. As such; “father, grant me the grace to love and forgive” is the foundation upon which all evolving souls truly unite. For such souls innately know that all things come and all things go, yet; God alone remains unchanged. Still and in that place of knowing I was drawn at the closing of my time to remember my journey and as I did I sighed, I cried and gently said goodbye and that was good for without that journey I could not return home whole. Therein; thank you Jetblack for all those incredible fell running years and thank you tia and jack for lifting my soul when walking, not running was an almighty struggle. For is this not the journey of soul written by William Shakespeare circ 1609? for love is our only reason for being!
“Let me not to the marriage of true minds, Admit impediments. Love is not love, Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. O no! it is an ever-fixed mark, That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wand’ring bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks, Within his bending sickle’s compass come; Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me prov’d, I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.” ~ William Shakespeare, incredible that this was written 400 years ago, no?
“It was during the setting of my sun that I truly came to know, that’s it’s the meeting of hearts and the moments of divinity that truly matter, not the nonsense and dramas of mammon, dear souls.” ~ Barry Hardy
“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

Mortality is an incredible privilege, when we accept the frailties of the mortal condition ~ Barry Hardy
