Introduction

The Candle

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wlisdom From Around Our World

‘There is not enough darkness in the whole of our world to put out the light of one candle.’ Robert Alden

Have you ever sat in front of a burning candle and stared into its flame for any length of time? If so, did you become aware of the feelings of warmth and comfort, of wellbeing and somehow being at home that radiate from it? And did you notice how the flame of one single candle can light up a whole room?

A candle can only do all these things by giving of itself and allowing the flame to consume its substance. Reflect upon this in your moments of disenchantment, when sometimes after your daily toiling and possibly fruitless strivings you feel as if you had given away every last bit of your strength. When you are in this state of exhaustion and sometimes begin to wonder about the sense, purpose and meaning of your efforts, the time has come for building more quiet moments of reflection into your daily life and that as soon as possible. Create a space where you can be undisturbed for a while and make yourself as comfortable as you can in it. Light a candle, look into it and then ask yourself: ‘Have I burnt myself out by being a light for others, giving them signs and showing them directions for new and better ways of being? How many candles of support am I giving to those around me, every day and throughout the whole year, trying to ease their load and lighten their pathway and through this maybe of our whole world? How about myself?’

Spiritually, light is knowledge and wisdom, and darkness is ignorance. It is true that when a candle gives of its light and warmth it can only do so until its own substance has been consumed by the flame and nothing is left. It is different for us because, whenever we attune ourselves to the stream of the Universal Christ’s consciousness, the source of all life and inspiration, every bit of light and warmth we give by nurturing others is constantly renewed by It and returned to us. The Christ’s warmth and light will never dry up or leave us, and the more of it we send into our world, the more we receive. The laws of the Universe command this. The Christ Star’s luminescence shines through all who are acting as Its channels on the Earth plane. The power of Its blessing and healing energies are constantly flowing into and through them and from there into our world, to be shared by all its lifeforms.

May the small still flame in all human hearts grow ever stronger, until the entire planet is filled with nothing but love and light, healing and peace. Instead of asking for earth- and mind-shattering enlightenments, let us pray that every single day of the coming year and all future ones will bring us and our world a constant supply of small rays of light that renews our whole race’s hope, faith and trust that the Divine great plan of life is unfolding as it should. And let’s give thanks and praise for the goodness of the life the Great Father/Mother of all life, and their only born Son/Daughter, the Spirit of the Universal Christ, so kindly provides for each one of us, God’s beloved children of the Earth.

Call Me By My True Names

Bird on the Nest - Call Me By My True Names - Rays of Wssdom - Words & Prayers of Hope & Comfort

Do not say I shall depart tomorrow
Or that I have never been,
As every day I newly arrive.
When you look deeply you can see
That I do so every moment.
I am the buds on flowers and trees,
The baby bird who with fragile wings,
Learns to sing and fly when leaving the nest.
I am every caterpillar that crawls
And in the jewels that are still hidden in rocks.

I arrive so that I may experience Myself
Through each one of you,
In our laughing and crying,
Fearing and hoping.
And the rhythm of My heart is
The birth and death of all living things.

I am the mayfly that metamorphoses on the river,
The bird who with the arrival of spring
Is nourished by the mayfly.
I am the frog who swims happily in its pond
And the snake in the grass that silently
Approaches the frog and devours it.

I am the starving child who is all skin and bones,
And whose legs are as thin as bamboo sticks.
I am in the arms merchant who distributes
His death bringing wares throughout your world,
And I am in those who are maimed and killed by them.
I am the refugee girl or woman on a small boat who,
After having been raped by sea pirates,
Throws herself into the ocean and drowns.

But I am also the pirate who fails to respect and love others,
Because the Divine spark in his heart has not yet
Woken from its slumbers and so
His inner eyes are still closed.
I am the member of a politburo
Who has more power than is good for him.
And I am the man who redeems himself
For what he did to others in previous lifetimes,
By dying in one of this man’s forced labour camps,
The same as he one day will be doing
At the end of one of his earthly sojourns.

My joy is like spring.
Its warmth makes flowers
Open and bloom in all walks of life.
And My pain is like a river of tears,
So great that it fills all the oceans.
Please call Me by My true names,
So I can hear My laughter and crying at once.
When at last I re-awaken to My true nature
And doors of compassion and love in My heart open,
I recognise that in truth My joy and sorrow are one.

to everything that comes your way.

May your soul enjoy the freedom of singing and dancing,
Praising and loving whatever comes your way,
 every moment of each day and week, month and year
of your present lifetime
and whatever waits for you beyond.

And may God and the Angels bless you and keep you safe,
now and forever.

Prayer For Today

Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers For Comfort & Healing - Prayer For My Daily Walk

Great Spirit, Mother/Father of all life,
Help me find the lonely ones
Among those I meet today.
Let me say the right words to take
Their loneliness away.
Too many walk with aching hearts
Along life’s highway.

Too many walk with breaking hearts,
Which no-one understands.
To them, the roadway’s rough and steep,
As it crosses their barren lands.
Help me lighten their weary eyes
And strengthen their hearts and hands.

Help me to brighten gloomy eyes
And let my own sorrows be
A reminder of someone else’s grief,
Of those who walk this road with me.
And when my words and hands fail,
Let me go with them in silent sympathy.

Deep peace of the open prairie and the wind-swept sky,
The flowing rivers, quiet valleys and noble trees,
Standing stalwart and true on the mountain side,
Steady through the winds of life.

Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
By whatever name anyone may call You,
You are always there.
May Your peace dwell within each one of us,
To take us back into the conscious awareness
Of our eternal oneness with You.

To overcome everything that is ugly and evil in our world
And transmute it into something beautiful and good.

Peace Prayer

Dove of Peace - Peace Prayer - Rays of Wisdom - Relationship Healing

In the cold of an over-materialistic world,
Where many are feeling lost and lonely
I wish you warmth and joy from the knowledge that
These are the days of miracles and wonders,
When ever more of us are once more
Becoming aware of their true nature
And the reason for their being here.

I wish you courage and strength
To heal your own pain and that of others.
May it grow from a steadily increasing awareness that
The love and wisdom aspect of our Creator,
The Great Mother of all life,
Is manifesting herself everywhere in our world.

I wish you a sense of humour and the gift of smiling,
To help you overcome all your fears,
So you can show others how to do the same for themselves.
In the silence of your inner being may you
Be at one with the will and power of the Great Father.
The Father/Mother and their only born
Son/Daughter, the Christ Spirit,
Are as much part of us as we are part of them.
May their highest qualities reveal themselves
In our world through you and your life.

I wish for inner and outer peace in our world.
May it flow from the heart-mind of the Divine Trinity
Into the farthest, remotest corners of our world,
To bless and heal all its lifeforms.
And may the Mother’s wisdom and truth enter
Into every human heart and soul,
As that’s the only place where truth is known.

I wish that the creative fire
Of the ideas from the heartmind of God,
Lighten and warm everybody’s days,
So that Its dreams and visions can come true,
Through us and our world, and all worlds.
I wish for the renewal of hope, faith and trust in our world,
To assist every one of us with ascending the heights of
The spiritual mountain of Divine compassion.
I wish for God’s love to flow into every heart and soul,
So that we may all walk together hand in hand,
As one big family, peacefully and forever united.

Although this is still a dream,
I know in my heart of hearts
That one day it can and will come true,
Through all human souls, including you and me,
For when God’s love has at last come alive
In every human heart and soul,
Anything will be possible and achievable.

Above all I wish for the gift of understanding
To enter every human heart and with it
The ability to stop taking things literally,
When the true meaning of something is
Hidden behind its surface words.

Amen

A Beam Of  Starlight

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - World Healing Prayer - Part One

With the help of the Christ Star and the Angels surrounding it everybody can do something for the healing of Mother Earth. Let’s join hearts and hands with them in prayer and focus our attention on the Christ Star’s light, the highest star and the brightest light in the whole of Creation. Concentrate on it for a while and absorb it by bathing in its radiance, then send it to all those who are affected by wars, acts of terrorism and all other types of crime.

Affirm:

I hold all perpetrators of our world into the light of the Christ Star. May it penetrate every fibre of their being, until the Divine spark in their hearts stirs from its slumber and turns into a small still flame of love. I ask the Angels of Healing, Peace and Reconciliation to be with me and show me how to go about this, so that everything is done in keeping with the Great Father/Mother’s will and wishes.

I believe in the blessing and healing power of the Christ Star’s light and I trust the wisdom of God’s great plan.

Focussing on the Christ Star steadies our earthly minds and balances them, so that the light of the Heavenly Forces can shine through us into all dark aspects of earthly life. May all our thoughts be filled with positivity and light and may this continue until even the last shred of the darkness and despair of our world has been absorbed into the Christ Star’s light. Under the protection of Its radiance we form a circle and are together as one, so let’s join hearts and hands and pray as follows:

World Healing Prayer

Part One

Rays of Wisdom - Healers And Healing - World Healing Prayer

All glory, honour and praise be to You,
Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life
And the Angels around Your throne.
We bless the Christ Spirit, Your only born Son/Daughter,
The golden light of the Heavens, who is
The Sun of all Suns, Star of all Stars and Light of all Lights.
Through Him/Her all lifeforms come into being
And are constantly nurtured and cared for.

You are the Source of all life,
Love and wisdom, knowledge and truth,
You are the Great Teacher of all worlds and beings,
Promised of old and who, through waking up
In ever more human hearts and souls,
Is at last in flesh appearing.
From within the core of everyone’s own being
Guide and protect us,
Show us the way of all things and
Fill us, our whole world and all other realms
With the blessing and healing power of
Your eternal wisdom and truth
That cannot be destroyed by anything.

Thank you for allowing us to know that
Every human being contains a tiny spark of You
That wakes from its slumber in our hearts,
When our time has come for aligning our energies
With those of the sacred Fire of Mother Earth and Father Sun,
And we once more become consciously aware
Of our oneness with You.

That’s how, in the fullness of time,
Each spark in its own right evolves into
A blazing flame of love and light, wisdom and truth.
Hand in hand with You and the Angels
This fire burns away
The dross of all darkness and fear
That exists in the consciousness of humankind.
Each flame is capable of absorbing ever more of
The dark clouds of ignorance, false beliefs and prejudices,
Its own and other people’s,
That to this day abound in us and our world.

May the radiance of Your Divine illumination
Flow ever more strongly into each one of us
And through us into our whole world.
May the dark destructive energies
Of war, terrorism and crime
Be absorbed into Your Light,
To be uplifted and transmuted into
Blessing, healing and harmonising energies for all life
That are flowing into the farthest and remotest corners of Creation,
In accordance with Your will and wishes.

In the name of love we ask these things from You
On behalf of Mother Earth and all her Kingdoms,
As well as every other part of Creation,
For You are the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory.
We worship You, we give You thanks,
We praise You for Your Glory.
And so it shall be, forever and evermore.

Amen

Healing Prayer For Us And Our World

Part Two

Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers of Comfort & Healing - Prayer For Healing Us And Our World
 

Beloved Father/Mother of all life,
I am calling on You today to ask for healing
For myself and my world.
Your Divine wisdom and power brought us all into being.
You sustain and support us every moment of every day.
Every breath I take, every morning I wake,
Every moment of every hour,
I am in You and You are in me
And I rejoice that it shall be so in all Eternity.

Please fill my whole being with the blessing and healing power
Of Your infinite wisdom and love.
And with the power of Your Divine thoughts,
Which once brought me into this life,
Help me to re-generate and heal my whole being.
I surrender my whole being into your loving hands
And pray that Your will shall be mine.
May Your words of healing and peace flow through me,
So I can do my share of
Blessing and healing, saving and redeeming myself
And everything that is in this life with me.

Please guide me and show me ways of
Casting out the things that are no longer of any use to me.
Mending that which is broken in me and my life.
Regenerating and renewing every cell and atom
Of my whole being and of our whole world.
Open blocked arteries and veins.
Removing inflammations and cleanse my body of infections.
Healing damaged areas of my inner and outer being.
[Pour your heart out and tell the Highest forces everything that is troubling you.]

May the blessing and healing power of Your love
Fill my whole being,
So that every part of me that is presently not functioning
The right way becomes perfectly healthy
And my whole being begins to function
The way You intended it to be at the moment of my creation.

I wish to serve You and the life You have created for us
With all my heart and mind, body and spirit and soul,
For the rest of this lifetime and throughout Eternity.
But this I can only do when my whole being has been healed.
That’s why in the name of love,
Your own sacred name,
I ask it from You.

Amen

To help us attend to our earthly duties
With happy, loving and carefree hearts,
Trusting Your great plan of life

The Prophet – On Religion

On Religion - The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran - Rays of Wisdom - A Celebration of Kahlil Gibran

An old priest said: ‘Speak to us of Religion.'
And the Prophet replied:
Have I ever spoken to you of anything else?
Is not religion all deeds and all reflections,
And that which is neither one nor the other?
Isn’t it the wonder and surprise that ever springs in your soul,
Even while your hands are hewing a stone or attending to a loom?
Who can separate their faith from their actions,
Or their beliefs from their occupations?
Who can spread their hours before them and say:
‘This is for God and that for myself.
This is for my soul and that for my body?’

All your hours are wings that beat through space
From one part of yourself to the other,
From the Higher or God Self to your lower earthly self,
Its counterpart.
Those who wear their morality only as their best garment
When they go to church on Sunday,
Would be better off naked, so the Sun and the wind
Can tear and burn no holes into their skins.
And those who define their conduct purely by
The ethics of dogma and creed of one religion or another,
Imprison the songbird of their souls in a cage,
Unaware that the finest songs do not come from behind bars and wires.
If your worshipping is but a window
That one opens and shuts at will,
You will never get to know the house of the soul,
Whose windows are forever open.

Your daily life needs to become your temple and your religion.
Upon entering it each day take everything you are with you,
Be it a plough or a forge, a mallet or a lute.
Take all the things you have fashioned,
Either of necessity or for your delight.
In your dreams rise above yourself and your achievements,
And put your failures behind you as the lessons of the past.
Fly on the wings of the knowledge you now receive
Directly from the Great White Spirit and take everybody with you,
So that in adoration you fly higher than their hopes
And humbly join and comfort them in their moments of despair.

If you want to know your Creator, refuse to follow like a sheep
The things that were written a long time ago.
Most of it is likely to be outdated and in need of review.
The religion of the new age is one of the heart
That aims to help all souls, independent of colour or race,
To grow in wisdom and understanding
Of the true purpose and meaning of humankind’s earthly existence.
This religion is a faith that invites all of you
To experience life’s processes ever more deeply.
Through consciously participating in them,
You become ever more aware of the living God and Goddess
Within you and everything that shares your present existence.

Now you can observe for yourself God/Goddess being as much
Alive in you as in your children and everybody else.
When you gaze into space, especially at night,
Discover how even in the stars and the clouds,
The Great Father/Mother of all life embraces all its Creations
With the same loving care.
With every ray of sunshine and drop of rain
That touches the Earth, they seek to comfort,
Bless and heal each one of you and your whole world.
In every flower, leave and blade of grass they are smiling,
In the trees their arms and hands are waving to you,
While the wind whispers words of healing and peace
To those whose inner eyes and ears have opened
To the new religion of love.

From ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gibran 1883-1931

The Lord’s Prayer

 A Healing Mantra For The Aquarian Age

Praying hands

Say the following words quietly to yourself and pay attention to the feelings that rise within your innermost heart and soul:

Our Father/Mother, Thou art in Heaven . . .

Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, Thy Heaven is here on Earth with me, inside my own heart. God and Goddess, Thou art as much part of me as I am of Thee. Thy Spirit is nothing but love and dwells in me. The spirit of love knows no separation. Thou art The Eternal Light. All your characteristics are waiting to come alive in each one of us, merely waiting to be brought forth by us. Thy Divine spark of the Christ Spirit is now coming alive in me. Thou art the flame of pure love and the state of Heaven in my heart.

Hallowed be Thy name . . .

With my whole being I worship Thee, o holiest of holy Mother/Father, Lord and Lady, Master and Mistress, God of power and might and Goddess of wisdom and love. Heaven and Earth are filled with Thy glory. Thou art omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent and everything Thou hast brought into being is sacred. It includes me and with all my heart and soul I honour and worship Thee and Thy Creation. I bless Thy Holy Name. Deep within the silence of my heart I listen to its sound, the great AUM. It renews Thy light, life, and perfection within me, for I am Thy child.

Thy Kingdom come . . .

Whenever I reflect on Thee and speak Thy blessed name, Thy light in my heart grows more powerful and grows into a blazing flame that fills my whole being. It unites itself with the sacred fire of Mother Earth and Father Sun and that cleanses me and heals me by burning my weaknesses and impurities. My dark thoughts and feelings dissolve when I dwell on the splendour of Thy great love and devotion to me, until nothing but Thy shining purity of thoughts and feelings fill my whole being. By filling it with Thy light and beauty, I realise that Thy kingdom is coming alive in me and is here with me in earthly life.

Thy Will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven . . .

Thy will created me and brought me into being. With the passing of time Thy light and beauty has re-created me and that brings me ever closer to the perfection of wholeness. Please make me ever more like Thee, so that through me the world around me is blessed and healed and transforms itself into the new Earth. The more Thy light illuminates my whole being, the more I glorify and praise Thee and Thy sacred name. May the purity and perfection of the Christ Star, the symbol of Thy only born son/daughter, the Spirit of the Universal Christ, come alive in all human hearts. May its radiance grow ever stronger, until the whole of humankind reflects Thy Glory and through us blesses and heals all life.

Give us today our daily bread . . .

O Christ Spirit, Thou art the Star of all stars, the Light of all lights and I am a tiny spark of Thee. Thou has placed me in earthly life so that I should grow and evolve and in the fullness of time respond to Thy calling. The light in me is a reflection of Thine. With every passing day it shines in me more powerfully and visibly, doing its share of removing more of the darkness of ignorance of earthly life.  As I consciously open my heart to Thee, my understanding of Thy wisdom and truth increases and with every breath I take Thou and I are growing a bit more into one.

The gifts Thou art bringing me are the bread that not only nourishes my heart and soul but through me that of those around me and ultimately our whole world. The sweetness of Thy Divine spirit is coming ever more alive in me and filling the cup of my love for Thee and my gratitude to overflowing. The pure flame of Thy Divine passion cleanses, purifies and heals every aspect of my being. All my human passions and earthly desires I surrender to Thee and pray that they should be transformed into blessing and healing energies for all life.

Having created us, Thou knowest better than anyone what rebellious creatures we are and how we hate to be lorded over. But as our whole being fills ever more with Thy love, we are willing and capable of fulfilling superhuman tasks as long as they comply with Thy will and wishes. Thou art the truly beloved of my heart and soul and that is much more than a Lord and Lady, Master and Mistress could ever hope to be. Thee I follow willingly and trustingly. And the power of Thy love, when it fills our whole being, provides us with wings to lift ourselves and those around us above the concerns of earthly life and helps us to view their importance from the right angle, that of the spirit.

And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us . . .

By sharing the gifts you so generously bestowed upon me to all who accompany me on my pathway through life, I freely give of my love. Freely and willingly, I forgive every one who has ever hurt, harmed or wounded me. And I pray that Thou will help the ones whom I have caused pain, to forgive me, so that we may set each other free and our karmic slates be wiped clean and we are ready for the experiences of the Age of Aquarius. My soul rejoices at the knowledge that the Christ Spirit is part of all my siblings in the human family.

May Thy glory and radiance, wisdom and power work through me to bring rest, healing and peace to the whole humankind. I pray that no shadow will ever again fall between Thee and us. Please help all of us to overcome our selfishness and transform our weaknesses into strengths. And with every day that passes, help me to love Thee more dearly and to see Thee more clearly in all that is in Thy Creation – totally and unconditionally, the way Thou lovest all of us.

Leave us not when we are in temptation,
But deliver us and our world from all evil.
Help us to uplift and transmute the greatest evil into the
Highest good and the greatest joy for all life,
In keeping with the will and wishes of Thy great plan.

Thou art the only one who knows what tests and trials my soul still needs to endure until the balance of my spiritual account has been restored to wipe out my failures and wrong-doings of previous lifetimes. I know that the obstacles I am still encountering are not punishments of some kind, but were created by my thoughts, words and actions of this lifetime and previous ones. I forgive myself for this and take responsibility for the things I am still struggling to resolve. I understand that any sickness of the human physical body and mind are indications of an underlying sickness of soul and spirit. Please help all of us to heal every aspect of our being.

With every breath I take, I breathe in Thy light and breathe out Thy love for the blessing and healing of all of Creation. In this day and every day, grant me Thy help and guidance, in all I say and do. Please, give me Thy strength and courage so that I may triumphantly overcome the things that are still troubling me. My whole being is crying for Thee to come to my rescue, to heal me and re-birth me into my true Divine nature, to once again be a fully conscious child of Thine, the way I once was and on the inner level of life never stopped being. Through the difficulties I am experiencing you are teaching me to take better care of myself in mind, body, spirit and soul. I thank Thee for this most gracious lesson.

May these struggles help me to discover and release my latent healing abilities, so that Thou and the Angels can work through me. And when I have recovered sufficiently, grant me the grace to show others how they, with Thy help, can also heal themselves. As I have been helped, one of these days I shall be a way-finder for others who are suffering the way I once did, so that my life grows ever more into a blessing and a gift for our world and everything that is in it, in accordance with Thy great plan of life, will and wishes.

Grant me the gift of Thy strength and wisdom to rise above the desires and temptations of my small earthly self. Deliver me from the evil of the dark thoughts and feelings that try to keep me from reaching out for Thee and Thy goodness. By learning to fully trust Thee and Thy Divine guidance and protection, help me to shed my fears and doubts, so that I may follow in total trust wherever Thou leadest me. And whenever the feelings of my earthly self threaten to overwhelm me, knowing  that they are not the work of the devil but that of my frightened earthly self, grant me the gift of Thy strength to say to this part of me: ‘It’s all right, calm down.’ Help me to rise above the lower aspects of my being and bring forth, from deep within me, my own Christ nature, so it can show me how to do that only that which is for the highest good and the greatest joy of all.

For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory . . .

My life is one with Thee and it is my will that it shall be so, for ever more. Thou art the light within my spirit and soul that is now safely returning me into the oneness with Thee. Trusting that in all Eternity I shall be safe with Thee, I surrender my whole being unto Thy care. I pray that Thy will be my will and that my will be Thine, that Thy sacred words and prayers are ours, so that the great plan of life unfolds in keeping with Thy will and wishes rather than ours. Show all of us how to manifest Thy love, beauty and perfection that are also in us, although for many still in seed form. Help us to conduct our lives, now and forever in keeping with Thy Universal laws, so that our vibrations become ever more purified and be compatible with Thine.

Thou art the true Kingdom of our being and Thine is the power and the glory that is now coming alive in us and our world with the awakening of They Divine spark in ever more human hearts. May this continue until the healing power of Thy sacred love fills all our hearts and souls to overflowing. May it spread from there into the farthest and remotest corners of Creation, to finally return to Thee enriched with the wisdom and understanding all of us have gained thus far in the course of our evolutionary journey up the spiral of life and back into the oneness with Thee, our Creator.

O Great White Spirit, fountain of all Holiness, Thou art the source of all life, light and healing. May all human beings be restored and regenerated, giving and receiving love, breathing out and breathing in nothing but love and light, together with Thee. By making peace with Thee, beloved Father/Mother, the human spirit and soul enters into Thy light and is cleansed and healed. Our whole being comes to rest in Thee, our body relaxes and every cell and atom of it are restored and regenerated. And when one of us healing, all humankind, Mother Earth, and all of Creation are healing with us.

So it shall be – for ever and ever,
In Thy sacred and most holy name.

May the blessing and healing power of Thy love flow through us and everything that is in our world. Through all channels who are ready to serve you, may the power of Thy love flow for the healing of humankind’s emotional and spiritual wounds of all lifetimes. All these things I am asking in the sacred name of the Universal Christ. Thou art the highest Star, the brightest light, the greatest love and the highest mind in the whole of Creation.

Amen

Rays of Wisdom - Words And Prayers Of Comfort And Healing - The Song Of My Beloved

Oh, listen!
I want to sing to thee the song of my Beloved.
Where the soft green slopes of still mountains
Meet the blue shimmering waters of the noisy sea,
Where the bubbling brook shouts in ecstasy,
Where still pools reflect the calm heavens,
There thou wilt meet with my Beloved.

In the vale where clouds hang in loneliness
Searching the mountain for rest,
In still smoke climbing heavenwards,
In hamlets at Sunset,  
In the thin wreaths of fast disappearing clouds,
There thou wilt meet with my Beloved.

Among the dancing tops of tall cypresses,
Among gnarled trees of great age,
Among frightened bushes that cling to the Earth,
Among long creepers that hang lazily,
There thou wilt meet with my Beloved.

In ploughed fields where birds are feeding noisily,
On shaded paths that wind along full and motionless rivers,
Beside banks where waters laps,
Amidst tall poplars that play ceaselessly with the winds,
In dead trees of last summer’s lightning,
There thou wilt meet with my Beloved.

In still blue skies,
Where Heaven and Earth meet,
In breathless air,
In mornings filled with incense,
Among rich shadows of a noon-day
And long evening shadows,
Amidst gay and radiant clouds of the setting Sun,
On its path on the waters at the close of day,
There thou wilt meet with my Beloved.

In the light and shadows of stars,
In the deep tranquillity of dark nights,
In the reflection of the moon on still waters,
In the great silence before dawn,
Among the whispering of trees,
In the cry of birds at morn,
Amidst the wakening of shadows
And the sunlit tops of far mountains,
In the sleepy face of our world,
There thou wilt meet with my Beloved.

Keep still, O dancing waters,
And listen to the voice of my Beloved.

In the happy laughter of children
Thou canst hear it.
The music of the flute
Is His/Her voice.
The startled cry of a lonely bird
That moves thy heart to tears,
You are hearing this voice.
The roar of the ancient sea
Awakens the memories
That once were lulled to sleep
By His/Her voice.
The soft breeze that lazily
Stirs the tree-tops
Brings the sound of
His/Her voice to thee.

The thunder among the mountains
Fills thy soul
With the strength
Of this voice.
In the roar of a vast city,
Through the voices of the night,
The cry of sorrow,
The shout of joy,
Through the ugliness of anger,
You hear the voice of my Beloved.

In distant blue isles,
On soft dewdrops,
On breaking waves,
On the sheen of water,
On the wing of flying birds,
On the tender leaves of spring,
Thou wilt see the face of my Beloved.

In sacred temples,
In halls of dancing,
On the holy face of sannyasis,
In the lurches of drunkards,
With the harlot and the chaste,
Thou wilt meet with my Beloved.

On fields of flowers,
In towns of squalor and dirt,
With the pure and the unholy,
In flowers that hide divinity,
There too is my well-Beloved.

The sea
Has entered my heart.
In one day,
I am living a hundred summers.
Oh, friend,
I behold His/Her face in thee,
The face of my well-Beloved.

This is the song of my love.

Come To Me, My Truly Beloved

Rays of Wisdom - Words And Prayers Of Comfort And Healing - Come To Me, My Truly Beloved

I have had enough of silent nights, of my unspoken grief and tired wisdom. Come to me, my truly Beloved. You are my treasure, my breath of life, dress my wounds and be my cure. Enough of words, just come to me without a sound.

Love means reaching for the sky and with every breath tearing away a hundred veils. Love steps away from the ego. It opens the eyes of inner vision and does not take this world so seriously. If you understand all this, congratulations, dear heart! You have joined the circle of lovers, but please tell me in your own words how all this began for you. For me it happened when I was absorbed in my work in this world, though I never lost my longing for my true home in the realms of the Highest. One day, exhausted with no strength left, I turned to God and the Angels and asked for their help. Suddenly they lifted me into the grace of Divine love. Words cannot describe the mystery of this experience.

Dear heart, why are you are so unreasonable? You have fallen in love. Why then are you still worrying about your life? Those who insist on robbing and stealing have reason to fear earthly laws as well as spiritual ones. But although you profess to be in love with the Highest, nonetheless you are worrying about what people may think of you.

While in earthly life, I will run fast and keep running until I catch up with the spirits of the air and the wind. I will dissolve into air and become nothing, so I can reach my Beloved more easily. I will become fire, burn my house and head for the desert. I will become all pain, so I can be healed. I will become humble and turn into soil so your flowers can grow in me. I will kiss the ground and become water, so I can flow into your rose garden. I will make my face shine like a golden coin, so I can become worthy of you, my one and only truly Beloved. I came in this world helpless and fearful but now that I am approaching the end of my journey, I am finding comfort and safety in you. The blessing of truth is like water, it can only flow downstream, back into the great ocean of life. Did it come into earthly life so that I can find the way back to you, my Beloved?

There is no bargaining with the love I feel for you. And the choices I make are no longer the ones of my earthly self but yours. Your will is mine and my will is yours. Now I know that love is the true nature of life throughout the whole of Creation and that it is also the essence of human nature that provides a mirror of our soul. This kind of love can only reveal itself to those who look into its face and have the courage to act it out in their own lives.

When you recognise the face of anger, false pride and all manner of other negative characteristics in others, do not turn away. Know that they are mirrors of your hidden inner self. Place your own negativity under your feet, turn it into a ladder for climbing ever higher into your true nature. There is no peace until you become the master of the desires of your lower earthly self. Let go of all anger. An outburst of it may taste sweet at the moment it is happening, but anger destroys – not merely the other one. In time it also kills you. Refuse to act as one of life’s victims. Be a conqueror by taking charge of every aspect of your being. If that sounds too difficult, ask God and the Angels for their help.

It takes humility to climb to freedom. My dear heart, never think you are better than others. Listen to their sorrows with compassion. If you want peace, do not harbour bad thoughts, do not gossip and do not teach what you do not truly understand yourself.

When a tree is planted every leaf that grows tells you of the tree’s love for its Creator. Let your life be like this and never forget that whatever you sow – in this lifetime and all others – is bound to bear fruit. Therefore, if you have any sense, my dear friend, plant nothing but love and remember that we show our worth by what we seek, not by our words but our actions and deeds. Water flows to those who want purity, so wash your soul of all desires and be cleansed for the table of the highest love.

Shall I tell you a secret? Flowers attract the most beautiful lovers with their sweet smile and scent. When writing poetry or prose, if you put the cravings of your small earthly self for fame and glory to one side and allow God’s inspiration to flow through you, it will do so and can then speak to people’s hearts and souls forever.

Do not spend unnecessary time with those who lack understanding. Never sit in judgement over them or throw stones at them or their talk. Each in their own sweet time they too will re-awaken into the awareness of their true nature. As the mirror of the soul easily gets rusty when dipped into muddy waters, it is better by far to keep the company of those who already have opened their hearts and learnt to love wisely, God’s way.

The Cosmic Touch

Rays Of Wisdom - Words & Prayers of Comfort & Healing - The Cosmic Touch

Just try to get the Cosmic touch,
The sense that you don’t matter much!
A million stars are in the sky.
A million planets plunge and die.
A million million men are sped.
A million million wait ahead.
Each plays his part and has his day –
What ho! The world’s all right, I say.

Just try to get the chemic view:
A million million lives made you!
In lives a million you will be
Immortal down eternity.
Immortal on this Earth to range
With never death, but ever change.
You always were, and will be aye –
What ho! The world’s all right, I say.

And though it’s written from the start,
Just act your best your little part.
Just be as happy as you can,
And serve your kind, and die – a human being.
Just live the good that in you lies,
And seek no guerdon of the skies.
Just make your Heaven here today –
What ho! The world’s all right, I say.

Thoughts Are Wings

Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers For Comfort & Healing - Thoughts Are Wings

Thoughts are wings that carry us
In a way most marvellous,
Backwards into memory’s maze
And forwards into unborn days.

The mind can travel fast and far,
Reaching out to touch a star,
Breaking free from time and space,
Soaring beyond all common place.
Our spirit from the cage of mundane things
Can make its escape.
For thoughts are wings.

Meditation

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Meditation

So we may know the Great Father/Mother of all life better
And feel Their wisdom, love and power,
Let us tune into their frequency in our meditation hour.
To tap into Divine greatness and use Its gifts each day,
We need to learn how to encounter it in a meditative way.
Making friends with the Universal Forces and finding out Its will,
Takes the inner silence where all is calm and still.

Nature’s forces are best observed in life’s quiet things.
Through Snowflakes softly falling like on Angel’s wings
Or the petals unfolding of a rose.
That’s how the Divine reveals itself to us
When our whole being is in repose.

So let’s carefully think about and plan to allocate
A portion of each day for being still and meditate.
When all is quiet within and without in deep meditation,
Our spirit and soul experience the kind of initiation
That enables us to quietly and peacefully endure
The outer world because we know
That in God we are secure.

Take time regularly for:
Thinking –  taps into the source of all knowledge.
Playing –  the secret of staying young at heart.
Reading –  a fountain of information that,
when applied to our daily lives, can lead to an increase of
wisdom and understanding and an expansion of consciousness.
Quiet reflections, meditations and prayers –  connect us with the Source
of our being and we gain access to the only true power
that exists in the whole of Creation.
Loving and being loved –  a gift from the Divine.
Being friendly –  the road to happiness.
Laughing –  the music of the soul.
Giving and sharing –  life is too short for selfishness.
Working –  the instruments of success.
Charitable deeds –  the keys to Heaven.

Healing Prayer For Relationships

Rays of Wisdom - Relationship Healing - Healing Prayer for Parents & Children

O Great Spirit, Mother/Father Creator,
Grant me the gift of Your Divine wisdom and forgiveness,
So that I may pardon each and every one
Who ever hurt or wounded me, including myself.
Help me to forgive every cruelty and unkindness
That was ever done to me by anyone, in word, thought and deed.
With hindsight, I can see that all who treated me this way
Supplied me with a special service and were my best teachers,
Because they all helped me to become the one I am now,
And for that, Great Spirit, I truly am thankful.

Thank you for showing us that each one of us is Your child
Whom You have granted the gift of another lifetime on the Earth,
So that we should learn and grow some more,
Each through their own experiences.
Thank you for the Angels, Masters and guides who are
Protecting us and lighting the way back home into the oneness with You.
I rejoice to know that we are all children in the great school of life,
Which You so lovingly have created for us.

I pray for Your forgiveness for the mistakes I have made,
Throughout this whole lifetime and all previous ones.
Help me to draw the learning from them,
So that I may bring forth all that is good and noble within me,
Finding wholeness and healing through becoming
Ever more like You and being closer to You.

As the road of this earthly life is long and difficult
And strewn with many kinds of temptations
Which my earthly self finds hard to resist,
Assist me with being strong in my determination to overcome them.
Help me to accept and love myself the way I am,
Safe in the knowledge that Your great wisdom and love
Created me – and everybody else – in Your Divine image,
And that you love us all totally and unconditionally.

To break the vicious circle of acting against my own best interests
And of being my own worst enemy,
When it comes to solving any problem, help me
To listen to Your help and guidance that comes
From deep within my own heart, where You dwell.
Help me to stop finding fault with myself and those around me,
But to love and accept myself and them they way we are.
Whenever I encounter difficulties, especially in relationships,
Grant me the gift of the ability to first look to myself to resolve them.

Now that I understand that the purpose of life on Earth
Is growth and evolution that leads each and every one of us
To ever higher levels of consciousness,
And knowing that all my experiences only ever happened
Because they meant to teach me something,
I let go of all resentment and grudges I ever
Bore against anyone, including myself.

Help me, Great Spirit, to love wisely, the way You do,
Myself and everything that comes my way,
Knowing that it is part of Your Creation,
That it has been prepared by Your great wisdom and love.
Help us all to dissolve the chains and shackles of Karma that
Have bound us to each other, for so many lifetimes,
So that we may set ourselves and each other free
From the bondages that were created
By the darkness of the ignorance of our true nature of past Ages.

Help us to free our world from all hatred, resentment, envy and greed,
And to fill us and it with Your Divine Wisdom, Power and Love.
My soul yearns to make peace with You and all life,
Because I now so much better understand
You and the processes of the life
You created for us.

* * *

Help me to forgive the mother of this lifetime for any unlovingness
She has shown towards me, knowingly or unknowingly, especially . . .
[Now pour your pain into God, who understands the way of all things]
Help me to forgive her for the times she failed to provide me with
The deep and fully satisfying Mother’s nurturing
That only You, my Divine Mother, can give to any of Your children.
Help me to forgive myself for expecting
Such love from someone who is merely human,
Like myself and who is, therefore, but one of your children,
On her own pathway of evolution and therefore still imperfect.

Help me to forgive the father of this lifetime for any unlovingness
He has shown towards me, knowingly or unknowingly, especially . . .
[Now pour your pain into God, who does understand]
Help me to forgive him for the times he failed to provide me with
The deep and fully satisfying Father’s love,
Forgiveness and understanding that You alone, my Divine Father,
Can feel towards all my efforts.
Help me to forgive myself for expecting
Such love from one who is merely human,
Like myself and who is, therefore, but one of your children,
On his own pathway of evolution and still imperfect.

Help me to forgive my partner for any unlovingness
S/he showed towards me, during the times You have given us together,
Knowingly or unknowingly. Especially . . .
[Now pour your pain into God, who does understand]
Help me to forgive her/him and also myself for
Any hurt and pain we ever caused each other,
For misunderstandings and abuse of any kind,
For not entering into the deep and fully satisfying
Relationship that is only possible between You and me.
Help me to recognise that it is folly to expect such
Perfect love and understanding from a mere human being who,
Like me, is Your child, on her/his own pathway of evolution
And therefore still imperfect.

Continue with this prayer until each and every one,
Who has ever hurt or wounded you, has been forgiven.
Finish off with:

Help me to forgive myself for all false expectations I ever hoped
Could be fulfilled in any of my human relationships,
When this can only be found in You, my Divine Mother/Father.
You are the Divine lover, who is alive in each one of us,
And You alone have the power to know and fulfil all my needs.
All those around me and with me are but outer manifestations of You.
And each one who has ever shared my life with me,
Is Your child and constantly searching the perfect loving relationship
That we can only have with You.

Help me to forgive my children for being [or having been]
Unable to fulfil the unrealistic hopes and dreams I once nurtured,
And that made me long and yearn for them,
Ever since I myself was a child who had to endure the suffering
At the hands of parents and other adults,
Who as yet failed to understand their own true nature and Yours,
And the reason why they were here.
Having no idea about the purpose and meaning of this life,
How could they understand me?

Thank You for allowing me access to the knowledge that
The children who came through me are not my children but Yours
And that they are in this life to fulfil their own Dreams
And reach their own Highest potential, not mine.
Like me, they are hoping to re-learn to walk
Hand in hand with You and the Angels, the way we all once did.

Help me, Great Spirit, to forgive myself and all those
Who ever hurt and wounded me for the suffering we,
In the ignorance of our true nature,
Inflicted upon each other, in the course of many lifetimes.
Help us all to set each other free.

Hand in hand with You and the Angels,
I release all those who have ever shared my life
From the Karmic chains and shackles of all lifetimes,
I forgive each and every one and set them free, now.
May the bonds that exist between us be transmuted into those of
True siblinghood, friendship and love,
For You, each other and the world You so lovingly
Brought into being for us, and re-create anew each day to our joy.

With my whole being, with all my heart and soul,
Mind, body and spirit I thank You for the gift of this life.
May the blessing and healing Power of Your Spirit
Now freely flow through me and all those mentioned in my prayer.
I love You with all my heart and soul and my whole being,
And I trust the blessing and healing power of
Your Divine Fatherly/Motherly wisdom and love
To bless and heal the wounds of all lifetimes in me and all life.

Amen

Rays Of Wisdom - Astrology As A Lifehelp On The Healing Journey - Cancer Healing Prayer

Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
Please help us to love You more dearly and
To see You more clearly in all that is.
Show us new ways of understanding,
So that with every passing day our faith and trust grows
In Your infinite wisdom and love that,
For a long time unbeknown to us,
Has always been trying to guide us,
Not as a force outside of ourselves
But from within the very core of our own being.

In the conscious awareness that
We are Your children and that You
Are as much part of us as we are of You,
Forgive us the trespasses of all past lifetimes
And grant us the gift of healing for us,
Our world and everything within it.
May every last shred of the darkness
Of the doubts and fears, sickness and pain
Of all our past lifetimes be absorbed
Into radiance of the white healing magic
Of the Christ Star’s eternal light.
May it shine from our hearts and souls
As it does from the heart of the Universal Christ,
Your only born Son/Daughter.
And may this continue until
All traces of dis-ease have gone from our world.

You are the voice of wisdom in everyone’s heart,
The wise one and living God within,
Who tells us that fear is the underlying cause of cancer,
The fear of life and the unknown.
Help us to restore our race’s faith and trust
In the life you have created for us,
And provide us with some kind of evidence that
There really is a great plan of life in which
Our world and every one of us has
Their allocated space and role to play,
And that all is well with both.

May the awakening of Your love and wisdom
In the hearts of ever more human beings
Uplift and transmute all fears and anxieties of our world
Into blessing, healing and harmonising energies
For the whole of Creation,
Until nothing but these feelings are
Flowing from our grateful and loving hearts
Into its farthest and remotest corners.
Through a better understanding of the processes
Of creation and life in general,
And humankind’s role in Your great plan of life,
Help us to know – not merely believe –
That the gift of life you are bestowing upon each one of us,
Each day anew, truly is most holy and precious one.

In the name of love we ask these things from you,
On behalf of Mother Earth and all her kingdoms,
Especially that of the human race.
We ask this not only for those who are dwelling
On this plane of life, but also for those who are
Resting and recuperating
From earthly life’s stresses and strains,
On the other side of the veil of consciousness
That to this day separates our two worlds.
May that veil also soon be gone for good.

Amen

 Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers Of Comfort & Healing - Spirituality

The needs of our world are countless,
But none is greater than the one for seeking
The assistance of the spirit’s power,
To raise our vision above that which to this day
Appears to be sordid and squalid in our world.
On the wings of God’s sacred wisdom and truth
We can lift ourselves above these things
And perceive the greater picture.
This enables us to see that, in the fullness of time,
Everything that is still is ugly and wrong on our planet
Will be made beautiful and right.

The human spirit requires something to live for
And reach heavenwards to something that lies
Beyond our ordinary perception,
Instead of peering into the abyss.
We are here to learn how to look inwards,
To find the answers to all our questions
And to make the changes our world requires,
Rather than waiting for others
To do these things for us.
This alone can turn humankind’s instinct
For pursuing purely selfish desires and dreams
Into a victorious and unselfish serving of all life.

On The Wings Of Prayer

Rays Of Wisdom - Words & Prayers for Healing And Comfort - On The Wings Of Prayer

Just close your eyes and open your heart,
And pray that your worries and cares may depart.
Yield yourself to Mother and Father above,
And let Them hold you secure in Their love.

As life on Earth grows more involved,
Many problems arise that we cannot solve.
But God only asks us to do our best,
So the Angels can take over and do the rest.

The next time you’re discouraged and feeling blue,
Know that one door is always open for you
And that’s the door to the house of prayer.
Our Highest Self is waiting to meet us there.

This place is no further away
Than any quiet spot where we can pray.
Our being turns into a temple, when God is there
And we place ourselves in His/Her loving care.

All prayers are heard and responded to,
And burdens too heavy for us alone to bear,
Can be lightened on the wings of prayer.

Reflections On Prayer

Praying Hands Albrecht Duerer - Reflections on Prayer - Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers of Healing and Comfort

In times of prayer our inner self is wide awake.
With our whole being we give
Our undivided attention to God and the Angels.
Failing to pray is a sign that someone is not yet
Aware of their own Christ nature and that
They are a spark of the Divine,
The same as everybody else.

Every human being contains this spark and
When someone feels no need to pray,
It is merely a sign that their spark is still
In its slumbering state and their time
For its awakening has not yet come.
Those who do not know how to go
About praying are still out of touch
With the most profound aspect of their nature.
And that’s the only difference between
Someone who prays and who does not.

Some believe that prayer
Separates us from real life,
Which to them means earthly life.
Yet, quite the opposite is true.
Prayer reconnects us with the eternal realities
Of the spirit realm, our true home.
It gives birth to our Christ nature and
We rediscover our own Divinity.
It returns us into the conscious awareness
Of our oneness with the Great Father/Mother of all life,
Our Creator and the whole of His/Her Creation
With all its manifestations of life.

The Road Less Travelled

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - The Road Less Travelled

Two roads diverged in a wood.
Alas, I could not travel both.
Long I stood, looking down,
As far as I could,
To where they disappeared.

I chose the road less travelled,
Which seemed as fair,
But looked as if it could do with more wear.
Although those travelling it
Had worn it away about the same,
My inner guidance said for me it had more of a claim.

That morning, both equally lay
Covered with leaves
That human feet had trodden black.
Knowing that one way of necessity leads to another,
I promised myself I’d never come back
And for my life chose the road less travelled,
But not just for a day.

Now I am glad to tell you,
Though not without a sigh,
How ages gone by,
Two roads diverged in a wood
And I was the weary wanderer
Who picked the one less travelled by.
It turned out to be a long and hard road,
But I’m glad I took this one.
I grew in wisdom and understanding
And that will forever make a big difference
To my life and me.

The Angel In Disguise

Rays Of Wisdom - The Spiritual Background Of Depression And Suicide - The Angel In Disguise

There is nothing I can give you that you have not,
But there is much, so very much that –
While I cannot give it – you can take.
No Heaven can come to us,
Unless our heart finds rest in today: take Heaven.
No peace lies in the future
That is not hidden in this moment: take peace.

The gloom of this world is but a shadow.
Behind it – yet within everybody’s reach – there is joy.
There is a radiance and glory in the darkness,
Could we but see.
And to see, we have only to look.
I beseech you to look.

Life is so generous a giver, but we –
Judging its gifts by their covering –
Too often cast them away as ugly, heavy or hard.
Remove the covering and you will find beneath it
A living splendour
That has been woven with the love,
Wisdom and power of the Divine.

Welcome it, grasp it,
And you touch the Angel’s hand
That brings it to you.
Everything we call a toil, a sorrow or a duty,
Believe me, the Angel’s hand is there.

The gift is there and the wonder of the
Over-shadowing presence
That protects us, is joyous too.
Be not content with discovering these joys,
For they conceal even greater gifts.

And so, at this time, I greet you –
Not quite as the world sends greetings,
But with profound esteem and a prayer
That for you, now and forever,
The eternal day breaks
And all shadows flee away.

Solitude

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Solitude

With every day that passes
 I re-discover my need for times of solitude.
I have found that without them it is impossible to recognise
Myself and everybody else in the light of who we truly are:
The beloved children of the Great Father/Mother of all life.
On the earthly plane most of us are struggling hard
To deal with the results of the seeds sown
By our own ignorance and weakness,
Selfishness and greed, anxieties and fears.

To overcome these aspects of our lower nature,
They have to be accepted by us into
The light and warmth of our Christ nature,
With love and forgiveness for ourselves and
All those who ever trespassed against us.
The work involved can only be carried out in true solitude,
Because on the inner level we are then
More firmly connected with others.
This makes it easier to love and forgive them
The way God loves and forgives us.

There is a difference between false and true solitude:
One is a flight from the people around us
That separates us from them.
But the other helps us to feel our oneness with them.
In false solitude we are alone with our own
Selfishness and sadness, pain and bruised sensitivities.
True solitude allows us to communicate with our Creator,
And everything that exists in our world and all others.
Through this  our inner connection with all life
Finds the healing that is essential at this time
Of our own individual spiritual rebirth
And that of our whole race and world.  
And the awareness of everyone’s Divinity
Brings us the realisation that in spirit
All of us truly have always been brothers and sisters.

True solitude provides us with the breaks
Everybody needs from time to time
To reflect on and contemplate things,
So they can be assimilated into our consciousness.
In this process we get to understand ourselves,
The purpose and meaning of our existence
And our pathway through life better.

And that the failings, dangers and mistakes of my life,
As well as the joys, pleasures and adventures were
Necessary lessons.

I thank my companions on this side of the veil of consciousness
That separates our two worlds for their kindness and support
During earthly life’s journey of exploration.
And I thank my spirit friends and helpers for their loving kindness.
The more I progress in life, the more I sense
That they have always been there for me,
Guiding, inspiring and encouraging me to carry on,
No matter what lessons were presenting themselves.

Sometimes it’s easy to feel Your presence and theirs,
But to this day it frequently feels
As if I had to walk by faith alone.
Forgive me for finding it hard to trust
Your guidance and protection,
And also for the occasions when I failed to respond
To the will and wishes of my Christ nature,
Being unkind and unloving,
Towards others as well as myself,
Forgetting who and what I truly am,
A spark of You and Your beloved child.

With my whole being
I thank you for my ever growing awareness of
Your loving presence in everything that is, including me.
And for my ever deepening knowingness
That You really are as much part of me as I am of You.
My journey through what’s left of my present lifetime
Is lit by the memories of the many mercies
You have always shown me.

O Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life/
May the wisdom and love of the Universal Christ,
Your only born Son/Daughter,
Take over my whole being,
So I can serve all Your children of the Earth
With the wisdom and love with which
You always have provided for us
And forever will continue to do.

All glory and honour, praise and thanks be to You
For the gift of my life and all life.
May Your servants, the Angels and Masters
And all other spirit friends and helpers forever be
Guiding, protecting and keeping
Us and our world safe in Your loving embrace.

Amen

A Prayer For You

Rays Of Wisdom - Words Of Wisdom For Friendship Healing - A Prayer For You

 I said a prayer for you today.
God and the Angels must have heard,
Cos’ I felt the answer in my heart,
Although no-one spoke a word.
I asked for neither wealth nor fame
I knew you wouldn’t mind,
But prayed for treasures
Of a far more precious kind.

I asked that they be with you
By night as well as by day,
With blessings of good health and cheer,
And friends to share your way.
Yet most of all, I requested happiness for you
In all things, great and small.
And it was for God’s never ceasing love and care
That I prayed most of all.

God be with you and keep you safe, always.

Prayer For True Wisdom

Rays of Wisdom - Words Of Wisdom For Friendship Healing - Prayer For True Wisdom

Lord, Thou knowest better than I know myself
That I am growing older and will some day be old.
Keep me from the fatal habit
Of thinking I must say something
On every subject and on every occasion.

Release me from craving to straighten out everybody’s affairs.
Make me thoughtful, but not moody,
Helpful, but not bossy.
With my vast store of wisdom,
It seems a pity not to use it all,
But Thou knowest, Lord,
That I want a few friends left at the end.

Keep my mind free from the endless recital of details.
Give me wings to get to the point.
Seal my lips on my aches and pains.
They are increasing and the love of rehearsing them
Is becoming ever sweeter, as the years go by.
I dare not ask for grace enough to enjoy
The tales of others’ pains,
But help me to endure them with patience.

I dare not ask for improved memory,
Only for a growing humility and a lessening cocksureness,
When my memory seems to clash with that of others.
Teach me the glorious lesson
That I could be mistaken, occasionally.
Keep me reasonably sweet.
I do not want to be a Saint,
Some of them are so hard to live with,
But a sour old person is
One of the crowning works of the devil.

Give me the ability to see good things in unexpected places,
And talents in unexpected people.
And grant me, O Lord, the gift
Of having the grace to tell them so.
Amen

Walking In Beauty

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Walking In Beauty

O Great White Spirit,
Father/Mother of all life,
Thank you for allowing me to take part
In the beauty and wonder of Your Creation,
At this special time of Mother Earth’s transformation.
Your breath gives life to all worlds and beings,
And I hear Your voice in every wind that blows.
As an earthling, I am small and weak.
Grant me the gifts of Your courage and strength
Wisdom and love.

Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes
Enjoy the Sun’s rising as well as its setting.
I treasure the things You are creating through me
As manifestations of the abundance of Your love.
May my ears ever be attentive to Your voice
And may I be wise enough to understand
And follow the things You have been
Teaching my people throughout the ages.

Help me to recognise the lessons
That are hidden in every flower and leaf,
Rock and mountain,
And all human beings.
Give me the wisdom not to wish
To be greater than any one of them,
And help me to overcome my biggest enemy,
My own lower nature.

Make me ready to come to You with
An open heart and a clear conscience
That I have served the wellbeing of our
Beloved planet to the best of my abilities,
So that when my present lifetime fades,
The same as every sunset does,
My spirit and soul reach You
Without remorse and shame.

Peace On Earth

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Peace On Earth

O Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
Being omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient,
You are in all that is and know the way of all things.
You are the spirit of everything that is good, right and beautiful.
You are the will and power of the Great Father
That rules the whole of Creation.
You also are the love and light,
Wisdom and truth of the Great Mother.

We are Your children of the Earth.
Please help us to find ways
Of becoming ever more like You and at one with You,
So that the warmth and love of Your light
Can flow through us into everything that is in our world
And bring us the healing and peace we so badly need.
 
Help us to deal with the many spiritual and mental,
Emotional and physical challenges of our time,
By living one day at a time and conducting
Our lives in keeping with Your Universal laws.
May each one of us fulfil their highest potential,
Being aware of our own duties and responsibilities,
Whilst freely and unselfishly giving of ourselves
From a kind and loving heart.

We give thanks and praise
For the gifts You have bestowed upon us,
So that hand in hand with You and the Angels
We can work our way through whatever
Karmic issues are still waiting to be resolved,
To bring healing for every aspect of our being.
In due course may we be able to show others
How to deal with theirs.

When the right moment has come for them,
Open their inner eyes and ears,
So they too can listen to and follow Your guidance,
As it rises from within the very core of their own being.
May ever more of us come into the radiance
Of Your sacred wisdom and truth,
And may this continue until even the last one us
Has found their own way back home
Into the consciousness of their true nature.
 
May the light of the Christ Star always illumine our way,
Its love guide our every thought, word and action,
Its Divine wisdom bring us inner peace,
Its strength fortify us in times of need,
And Its compassion and love
Guide and protect us,
Bring us comfort and healing,
And keep us safe, n
Now and forever.

Amen

Let Me Today

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Let Me Today

 Let me today do something that shall take
A little sadness from our world’s vast store,
And may I be so favoured as to make
Of joy’s too scanty sum a little more.

Let me not hurt by any selfish deed
Or thoughtless word, the heart of foe or friend.
Nor would I pass, unseeing, worthy need,
Or sin by silence when I should defend.

However meagre be my worldly wealth,
Let me give something that aids humankind.
A word of courage or a thought of health,
Dropped as I pass, for troubled hearts to find.

Let me tonight look back across the span
‘Twixt dawn and dark, and to my conscience say:
‘Because of some good act to beast or man
The world is better that I lived today.’

Who Am I?

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Who Am I?

I am much more than a picture in a passport
Or qualifications and titles.
I am not the stories people tell about me
And I am not in the judgments of others.
I refuse to be placed in boxes
And can neither be numbered nor labelled.
I cannot be known by
Any knowledge of earthly human minds.

But who am I and who are you?
We are spirit and soul and on the inner level of life
We are one and you are part of me as much as I am part of you.
If you wish to meet the one we both truly are,
You need to look into your heart.
It knows how to recognise the true me and you,
And easily connects us with the vibration of love.

I am an experience and a feeling,
A wave and a vibration
That can come to you in a tear or a smile,
A flower, a tree or a butterfly,
But also the oceans of our world and the skies above them.
I am the wind that caresses your face and hair.
I am what I love within me,
As well as that of which I am afraid.
I am me, but even though
I am in anything and anyone
And any place where I want to be.

Do not tell me who I should be.
Do not mention my boundaries and limitations,
Or who – in your view – I could or should be.
All I ask of you is that you
Accept and love me the way I am
And allow me the freedom and space to be myself.
Whenever you wish to know me,
All you have to do is approach me
With a smile and a hug,
So I can recognise you.
Then let me take you to the place
And the experience where all is one,
For there alone we can find
The true ‘me’ and also the true ‘you’.

Dare To Be Who You Truly Are

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Dare To Be Who You Truly Are
 
Learn to limit and content yourself
With the specific task of
Daring to be who you truly are:
A beloved child of the Great White Spirit,
Father/Mother of all life
And a young God in the making.
Show yourself worthy of it by
Resigning, with good grace,
Everything you no longer are.

Then go forward and give of your best,
Intuitively guided and protected by
The living God, the wise one within,
Trust the God’s great plan of life,  
Your place within it and
That it’s a good life that’s been given to you.
Unselfishly give of your best and use
Your gifts and talents that have
Taken many lifetimes to develop,
For the good of the whole.

What Is Love?

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - What Is Love?

If you asked me what love is, I would say:
Love is the emptiness within,
From which everything rises,
And in which everything has its being.
I am the emptiness and I am that which rises,
And so are you.

I am all of Creation and I am love itself.
I have no desire other than to love,
Because that is the only way I can be myself.
You are in me and I am in you.
And from the emptiness of being,
We all have once risen.
Gazing upon the world around me,
I realise that all I see is my own Creation,
That all my suffering is my own doing and that
There is no-one to blame or praise, except myself.
And when I look deep enough within,
There is nothing there
But the stillness of God’s love.

I Am Love

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - I Am Love
 
Do you want to know my name? Does it matter?
But if you insist, I will tell you.
It’s no secret, you know me anyway: I am Love.
I am in you and you are in me. We are one.
I am all of you and you are all of me.
You know me, as I know you.
We have always known each other,
For we have always been one.
You and I are in the whole of Creation.
We are love and our hearts are part of
The living, loving and beating heart
Of the whole of Creation.

Yesterday and tomorrow exist only in the illusion
Of our earthly existence.
The essential and most important part of our being is spirit.
It is immortal and eternal,
And knows no yesterdays or tomorrows.
There is only now and this now is love.
We are all there ever was and all there ever will be.
We are alive and always have been.
We cannot die because we were never born
On the material plane of life.
We are eternally young and will never grow old,
And for us there truly is no death.
Therefore death, where is thy sting?
You have no hold on us!

All there is lies within us.
The eternal fountain of youth and Shangri-La
Are neither dreams nor illusions.
They are symbols for states of consciousness
That are part of our inner truth.
That’s why the two places will never be found on the Earth.
The realities of that life are a dream and an illusion
That frequently presents us with the nightmare of being
Trapped in a physical body that acts like a black box,
Which for a long time cannot be penetrated by
The light of spiritual wisdom and truth.
But eventually it takes us back into
The awareness of our true nature and
Roots in the spiritual background of physical life.

Rejoice, dear Friend, that you and I have already woken up
And can manifest in our world that which we truly are.
For ever more of us
Trumpets are sounding and mission bells tolling:
‘Are you sleeping still? Wake up, come alive!’
Listen to the sounds of your Highest Self calling
And pay attention to the responses that rise
From the very depths of your own being.
You are the only one who can take you
Forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life
Into your true inner eternal realities
And they are love.’

Something is stirring deep within all human hearts and souls.
It’s a fluttering like butterflies’ wings
That makes people wonder: ‘What could it mean?’
Until finally there comes the realisation
That there is nowhere to go and nothing to do,
Except being true to our real nature,
Going inside and gently surrendering to our Highest Self,
So It show us ways of being once again
That which we always have been:
Love.

Hand in hand with God and the Angels,
Each one of us is potentially a manifestation of the
Great Father/Mother’s love on the Earth.
Those who have matured into spiritual adulthood are required
To act as pathfinders and lightbringers for our world.
May the light of the Highest Star, the Universal Christ,
Awaken ever more strongly in you and me,
So it can flow through us into those around us.
May this continue until every last shred
Of the darkness of false beliefs, prejudices and superstitions
That to this day exist on our planet has been absorbed
Into the Power and Glory of the Christ Spirit,
To be uplifted and transmuted into
Blessing and healing energies for all life.
The power to do this is present in each one of us,
Waiting to be discovered and developed, and then
Used responsibly, unselfishly and with great caution.

Armageddon is the symbol of the battle
Between the higher and lower aspects of human nature
That has been taking place inside all of us, for far too long,
But neither part is meant to rule supreme forever.
Ever more of us are now working on reconciling and
Healing them together, so they can work together
For the Highest good and the greatest joy of the whole,
And that is love.

There will be no day of judgement or reckoning,
No retributions and punishments,
Only a waking up and coming home into
Knowing who and what we truly are
And always have been: Love.
And then hand in hand with God and the Angels,
The time has come for discovering
What that truly means.

The Magic Of Music

Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers For Comfort & Healing - The Magic Of Music

I am the Great Mother of all life
And the soul of the Universe.
Music is My voice that tells you about
The harmonies of the Heavenly Fields
On the highest levels of life, where I dwell.
It brings them to earthly life where
I provide poets and composers with ideas.
With their help I communicate with you.
The magic of My music captivates
Human souls and their earthly senses.
Making and listening to certain types of music
Lifts you into My realms.

I inspire the making of instruments
And the musicians who use them.
I encourage them to aim for
Ever better sounds,
To please themselves and Me.
I am Mistress and servant alike,
Of those on the physical plane of life,
As well as the ones they believe to be dead,
Who in truth are alive and well in
The spirit world, your true home.
I am part of the Eternal Spirit and
My music responds to the requirements
Of anyone taking part in earthly life.
In days gone by I accompanied you into battle
And to this day into ballrooms and dance halls.
My vibrations have the power to make humankind
Rejoice and Laugh, weep and mourns,
Wonder and worship.

My music tells stories of love and hate,
Of souls condemned and redeemed.
It is the incense on which your prayers take wings
And fly into My realms.
It’s in the smoke that falls over battlefields,
Where people are dying and thinking of Me.
It comfort them when they have to find out,
Each through their own experiences,
That there is no glory in wars,
Only suffering and pain, blood and sweat,
Dirt and tears for themselves
And also their loved ones at home.

My music reaches and comforts human spirits and souls
When their earthly selves are wading
Through the depths of depression and despair.
It opens human hearts to love
And is as much present and at home
On marriage altars, christening fonts and funerals.
It’s with you when you stand at the open graves
Of those who have been called home
Into the world of light.
It brings comfort and healing
To the ones left behind.

Music is an aspect of the feminine part
Of the Great Father of all life.
I am the Goddess and He is My masculine counterpart.
I serve Him and the whole of our Creation.
Before Me all are equals.
My music easily makes slaves
Out of Kings and their servants alike.
 In the natural world of the school of earthly life
It speaks to you through the birds of the air,
The insects in the fields,
The crashing of waves on ocean shores,
And the wind sighing in the trees.
Once you have become aware of My presence,
You can perceive Me anywhere,
Even above the chatter of voices and
The clatter of wheels on city streets.

All life is My family and I am the parent of the best
As well as the worst that is in humankind.
They are part of Me and like Me
Each one of you is an instrument
That serves the Divine aspects of life.
You are like Me and I am like you.
I am one facet of the Holy Trinity
Of the Universal Life Force
That is known to many of you as God,
And so are you.

During your race’s most
Traumatic experiences My music never leaves you.
Each time one of you has been wounded
In mind and body, spirit and soul,
I bring comfort and healing.
I am the muse behind all works of art.
I enjoy expressing and experiencing Myself through you.
I am the inspiration behind the work
Of your world’s writers of poetry and prose,
As well as your composers.
The quality of what each one of them produces
Depends on which evolutionary level an individual has reached.
This decides into which one of My many frequencies
They can tune the receiver/transmitter station
Of their earthly minds.

And no matter what ever happened in earthly life,
I have always accompanied you,
Giving wings to your minds,
Flight to your imagination
And breathing life and a touch of beauty
Into everything you do.

Listen to Me in the song of birds.
It is a music that stirs a happy chord
In human hearts and souls.
Birdsong can lift you into My world, the realms of spirit,
But do not listen with your mind alone.
Feel the chord this music strikes in your heart.
It has the power of lifting you above the conditions
Of your earthly existence.
It gives you wings that enable you to fly like a bird
And, at least for a time, releases you
From that which is troubling you.

Birdsong lifts you into My heart and
Makes yours respond with feelings of happiness.
Regardless of how anxious and frightened you may feel
About the things that are happening in the world around you,
Whenever you allow yourself to be carried away
By music whose vibrations resonate with
Your heart and soul, you know happiness and
Each time you listen to it,
Your inner faith and trust
In the goodness of life increases.

Birds belong to the Air element.
They are My messengers who are telling you
That your spirit is part of the same realm
And in truth is as free as the birds are.
Try it out for yourself and observe how
Your thoughts can instantly take you
Into the  farthest and remotest corners
Of the whole of Creation.

Each time you proceed
With a song in your heart and soul that is
As pure and clear as that of the birds of your world,
There is nothing that will try to stop your spirit
From using its wings for lifting yourself and
The whole human race into the highest regions of life,
To receive and benefit from the blessing and healing
Rays of the Universal Christ.

The Value Of Prayer

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - The Value Of Prayer

  Prayer is one of the finest gifts
The Highest realms of life have bestowed upon us earthlings.
It costs nothing and brings many rewards.
But as much of the time we don’t know what’s really good for us,
For our own protection the answer to our prayer has to be: ‘No!’

In times of our most dire needs, when nothing appears
To be working for us and the whole world seems against us,
Every human being eventually reaches the point
For going down on their knees and humbly praying something like:
‘Can someone out there please help me?’
In that moment our superconscious faculties
Begin to open and the receiver/transmitter station
Of our earthly mind starts to tune itself into the frequencies
Of our friends and helpers on the higher levels of life.

Because God is as much part of us as we are of God,
No thought, word or action ever goes unobserved.
Our spirit friends and helpers are part of us on the inner level.
They never leave us, but they are not allowed to help us,
Unless we invite them in and ask for their assistance.
Their task is to encourage us and coax us forwards
On our evolutionary journey through life,
To provide us with the courage and strength
For bringing forth our own inner strength
And developing it for coping with difficult situations
And learning from them.
They cannot do any of the work for us.
There would be no point, as in that case spiritual progress
Would be impossible for humankind,
Individually and collectively.

And so, together with our friends and helpers let us pray:
May the peace of the Great Father/Mother of all life
Be present in every moment of our daytime thinking
And protect our dream state at night.
May the Divine Spirit become manifest in our lives
In ways that were never experienced on the Earth plane before,
So that very soon every day can be
All that we ever hoped it to be.

May our highest hopes, aspirations and dreams
For ourselves and our world be fulfilled
And all our prayers answered.
With each day that passes,
May our faith and trust in the
Highest Forces of life rise to new heights
And our inner vision expand sufficiently
To enable us take charge of the drives and urges
Of our lower animal nature and through this our destiny.
Safe in the knowledge that we and our world
At all times are resting safely
In the loving hands of God and the Angels,
May peace, health and happiness
Forever be ours.

Amen

I Asked And I Was Given

Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayer for Comfort & Healing - I Asked And Was Given

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve.
I was made weak, that I might learn to humbly obey.
I asked for riches, that I might be happy.
I was given poverty, that I might become wise
And be able to appreciate abundance when it arrives in my life.
I asked for power, that I might be feared and praised by people.
I was given powerlessness, that I might become aware that
The only true power belongs to God.
I asked for all the things that would help me to enjoy my life.
I was given wisdom and the ability to enjoy all things.

I asked for health, that I might do greater things.
I was given infirmity, that I might grow in understanding
And become a better human being through bringing
Forth from deep within the highest and best qualities,
Which in those days were still slumbering inside me,
Waiting to wake up to help me evolve into
A true daughter/son of the living God on the Earth plane.

And when my awakening came,
I asked for Divine courage and strength,
But the lessons of my subsequent life taught me
That these characteristics cannot be given to us by anyone,
Not even by God and the Angels.
They can only be developed by following our inner guidance
And bringing them forth from within
The very core of our own being.

That is how the Universe at all times meets everyone’s true needs.
It’s just that frequently this has to come about in mysterious ways,
Which we as earthlings find hard to understand.
But rest assured that each time we ask for something
We get what we truly need.
That’s why we need to be careful what we ask for,
Because in some way our are always
Heard and replied to and that frequently
In spite of our small earthly self’s desires.

All these things have taught me
That my life – and everybody else’s –
In truth is filled with the goodness and love
Of the Great Mother’s wisdom,
And that ultimately, each life is a gift and a benediction
From the Highest Star and the Brightest Light
In the whole of Creation,
The Christ Star.

Be Still And Know That I Am God

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Be Still And Know That I Am God

Listen to the beat of your heart in this moment.
Let go of all preparedness and knowing.
Just be still.
Reach beyond thoughts and words and
Empty your mind of thinking about desires and goals.

Cherish the now and bless each moment,
Give thanks to the Great Father/Mother of all life
For creating you the way you are
And know that you will never be more ready
For what you have been given
Than you are now.

Do not wait for a better version of yourself to grow,
Better times to come or the Sun to rise more perfectly.
No-one will arrive on your doorstep and knock,
To make it all happen.
You’ve got to do it!

The Sun does not rise to please you,
Although it does so perfectly every day.
It’s just that you are unaware of it most of the time.
The span of earthly life that God has allocated to you
Is at your command. So don’t wait.
Go out there and make things happen!

Nothing is gained from too many spiritual exercises
And merely reading a great number of books.
There’s no need for endless meditating either.
But every day, if only for a few minutes,
Take the time to be still and listen within.

And then get on with doing the things
That come to you naturally,
For that’s your inner guidance showing you the way.
And once again become
That which you truly always have been: Love.
That’s what you are, even though for a long time
You were no more than a tiny spark
Of the all-embracing and all-forgiving
Love of your Divine parents,
The Great Father/Mother of all life.

Be still and know that I am God and so are you.
You are part of Me and I am part of you.
I am your inner teacher and guidance,
Your intuition, the living God and wise one within.
Everything will always be well
For those who trust Me and follow Me.
You and your world are forever
Resting safely in My loving hands.

Each time I partake in a drop of it,
I affirm that my whole being is filling with
Divine love and wisdom and the power
To bless and heal all life.
And because God is part of me,
That’s precisely what happens.

Make Me Brave For Life

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayes And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Make Me Brave For Life 

Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
Make me brave for the life You have given me.
Help me to straighten after pain,
The way trees do after each rain,

Like grass that’s been blown down,
Let me rise from sorrow with an inner vision
That’s opened and knows
That Your ways are always wise.

When life brings blinding things,
Help me to remain focussed on
Looking forwards and upwards,
Never back,

Safe in the knowledge that behind
The darkness of humankind’s earthly existence
Your light has always been waiting
To eventually reveal our true nature to us,
The part of our being that’s only interested in
That which is good, right and beautiful.

Forgiveness Prayer

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Forgiveness Prayer

Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
I ask for Your forgiveness for myself and all humankind.
Please, help me to forgive all those who ever hurt and wounded me,
In thoughts, words and deeds, consciously  and unconsciously,
In this lifetime and all others.
I forgive each one of them.

Help me also to forgive myself for everything I have ever done
To hurt and wound others, in thoughts, words and deeds,
Consciously  and unconsciously,  
In this lifetime and all others.
I ask each one of them to forgive me.

Please help me to forgive myself for the occasions when,
During the long spell of being ignorant of my true nature
And the higher purpose and meaning of my life,
I harmed myself through thoughts, words and deeds,
Consciously  and unconsciously, in this lifetime and all others.
I forgive myself for this.
Will you please forgive me, too?

Through the forgiveness we are projecting
With Your assistance into our world
And are receiving from others,
The chains and shackles of Karma dissolve
And fall from us.
We are setting each other free,
So that hand in hand with You and the Angels
Each one of us can evolve into
The master of the vessel of their own being,
Life and destiny.
In the name of love I ask this for myself
And on behalf of all humankind.

Amen

Use this prayer twice daily for thirty days,
but then only when You feel bad feelings
Against someone rising from within.

Illusion To Fusion

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Illusion To Fusion

Shadows that haunt us in dreams and waking,
Dissolve in the light of the new dawn that’s breaking.
All fears with their black clawing terror,
Stand naked and harmless,
Each one revealed as an error.

Mountains for climbing and bridges to cross,
Regrets at their passing, but no need for a sense of loss,
Knowing that everything in the cauldron of mind
Can be transmuted by the new kind of love we find.

We are beautiful dreamers, awakening at last
From the loneliness of the past,
Into our true nature and life everlasting,
And connecting with all in the infinite flow
Of God’s life of light and love –
As above, so below.

Advice For Living

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Advice For Living

We are here to become aware that
On the inner level of life
The whole of Creation is one
And that everything is connected with
And related to everything else.

This means that inflicting a wound
On one person or animal alike
Hurts and harms all life,
And attacking the honour of one
Affects the honour of all.
Whatever we do influences
The whole of Creation.

This shows the need for acting responsibly
And with the greatest of care.
When human hearts and minds are united,
The Divine power of the Universe
Comes to their assistance.
So whatever you do in life,
Do the very best you can
With heart, mind and hands.

When hearts and minds are truly fused into one,
Whatever we ask for,
The Universal Forces will not hesitate
To fulfil our wishes.

A Mother’s Love

Rays of Wisdom - Words And Prayers Of Healing And Peace - A Mother's Love

Naturally, there are exceptions to any rule, including this one. But generally speaking, nobody loves us like a mother is capable of loving her child. Somewhere in the finely meshed fabric of life, the love that existed between her and us in other lifetime wove a strong golden cord that connected us with her and released us into our present lifetime together with her. Ideally, this bond is not one of possession but of protection and caring, of being there for us whenever we needed it. In our younger days we may have felt the strain of over-watchfulness and too many questions. But the old equaliser time is likely to reveal to us eventually that the quality of her love has been less selfish than we thought, and more precious than we ever dreamed it could be.

The best part of the relationship with our earthly mother is not the blood connection, but the karmic ties between us that could reach a long way back into previous lifetimes. That’s the main reason why she chose to act this part in this one. She did it because that’s what she wanted and not because it was her duty. It was her choice to be our mother and ours to come as her child. The awareness of this sets us free to say: ‘I like you, mother’ or ‘I love you, mama’.

Quanah Parker from the Native American Comanche tribe writes: ‘Comanche may die tomorrow or in ten year’s time, but when the end of one lifetime comes for any of us, we know that we shall all be together again in the world of spirit. That’s where I want to see my mother again.’

But even if the mother of our present lifetime could not love and attend to us the way we would have liked her to, the Great Mother of all life has always provided for all our needs and accepted us just the way we were at any given moment. Having provided us with unloving mother for our present lifetime has been part of this and no matter what may ever happen to us, the Great Mother loves each one of us totally and unconditionally and will forever do so.

The Rosebud

Rays of Wisdom - Words And Prayers for Comfort And Healing - The Rosebud

Even the tiniest rosebud
Is a flower of God’s design,
And I cannot unfold its petals
With these earthly hands of mine.

The secret of opening flowers
Is not known to such as I.
But God does this easily,
 But in my hands they’d just die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
Or anything else of God’s design,
Where shall I find enough wisdom
To know this life of mine?

That’s why I trust God to lead me,
Each moment of every day.
I look towards my inner guidance
For every step of my way.

The path that lies before me,
You alone, Great Father/Mother, knows
And I trust You to unfold me,
Just as You do with the rose.

Dancing With God

Rays of Wisdom - Words And Prayers For Comfort And Healing - Dancing With God

Some time ago, I was meditating on the word guidance and noticed for the first time that this word ends in ‘dance’. This reminded me that somewhere I had read that doing God’s will can be compared to dancing.

When two people are dancing
And both are trying to lead, nothing feels right.
Their movements do not flow with the music
And are uncomfortable and jerky.
Yet, as soon as one person allows the other one to lead,
The energies of both bodies come together
And begin to flow easily with the music.
 
By giving each other gentle cues,
Perhaps with a nudge to the back
Or gently pushing in one direction or another,
Their bodies move gracefully, but this kind of dancing requires
Surrendering to the will of one’s partner
And attentiveness towards them.

After this reflection I took a closer look at the word guidance.
The letter G made me think of God, and the letters u and i
Were saying: ‘God, u and i dance.’
So I asked God to lead me
And told Him/Her that I freely and willingly
Surrender my whole being,
Knowing that this way I shall always be safe.
Ever since then the living God within me, my intuition,
Has been guiding and protecting me.
I trust that this will continue wherever God’s plan
For me and our whole world may wish to lead me.

May God’s guidance and protection also be
With you today and forever.
Like me, may you walk safely hand in hand
With the Great White Spirit and the Angels,
By simply following their instructions
As they come to you intuitively.
May your spirit and soul fly free and move in step
With the eternal dance of the Universal Christ,
The Great Father/Mother’s only born Son/Daughter.
S/He is the great Light of the whole of Creation,
Who is the light of all lights and the Sun behind all Suns,
Through whom all life is given, nurtured and cared for.
May you trust Its guidance and protection
Throughout all the seasons of your life,
Now and forever.

Let Nothing Trouble You

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Let Nothing Trouble You
 
Every event in earthly life is but a passing phase,
Because all life, including your own,
Is constantly evolving and changing.
Even God does this.
As God is with you and part of you,
Evolving and changing with you,
Guiding you from within the very core of your being,
Let nothing trouble and frighten you.

God takes care of everyone’s true needs at all times.
That’s why in truth no-one ever lacks anything,
And with patience you can attain anything
You have ever striven for.

Those who seek freedom from the limitations
Of their earthly existence,
Need to get in touch and bring forth
The Divine power within them
And use it for the highest good of our whole world.
In this way they are calling into action
The creative Universal forces.
In due course they return, with rich treasures added,
Whatever is sent out to the sender’s own life.

That does not mean they cannot ask for help.
Whenever they feel lonely, fearful and in need of it.
But they have to ask for it, the same as everybody else,
For it will not come automatically to anyone
From the spiritual level of life.

All Of Life Is Flowingness

Rays of Wisdom - Words Of Wisdom For Friendship Healing - All Of Life Is Flowingness

All of life is flowingness
And in this flowing
There is meaning and law.
I trust God’s great plan of life
And my own within it.
Therefore:
I cannot lose what is my own and
I need not seek what is my own,
For what belongs to me will come and
Whatever goes does not belong to me.

Only what I am has power
And everything that’s rightfully mine
Is constantly drawn to me and
Will appear at the right moment.
Knowing this, I give up
All personal struggle and ambition.
I let go and trust the inner guidance
Of my Highest Self and the Universal Forces
To show me the way and
Run my life for me.

Slowing Down

Rays of Wisdom - Words And Prayers For Comfort And Healing - Slowing Down
 
Great White Spirit,
Father/Mother of all life,
Help me to slow me down,
Ease my pounding heart,
Quieten my racing mind
And steady my hurried steps.

In the noise and confusion of my earthly existence,
Grant me the gift of finding the peace
Of Your mountains, hills and lakes,
That restores my ability to sleep at night.

Teach me the art of taking time off:
For smelling the flowers,
Seeing more of my family and friends,
And reading things that nurture
Me and my soul.

With every breath I take,
I give thanks and praise to You
For the beauty and wonder of Your Creation,
For everything that is presently in my life,
For that which once was
And whatever will be one day.

Thank you for teaching me
That there is more to life than running ever faster.
Each time I admire the branches of a towering tree,
I realise that it could only grow
To its present height and strength
Because it took its time.

That’s why I am asking you to slow my down.
Help me to become ever more gentle
With everything that is in my life,
And to be humble of heart,
For in that place alone human souls can
Find the rest, peace and healing they need
And receive from You.

Trust

Rays Of Wisdom - Words & Prayers Of Comfort & Healing - Trust

O Universal Christ, Thou Art
The Highest Star and the Brightest Light
In the whole of Creation.
Amid the encircling gloom of our world,
Lead Thou me on
With the radiance of Thy light
And Thy loving hands,
For human nights of the soul are dark
And in earthly life
I am far from my true home.

Direct Thou my feet.
I do not ask to see
The distant scene,
Only one step forward
At a time.
That will do for me.

I did not always pray that
Thou should lead me on.
While I was ignorant of my true nature and Thine,
I preferred to choose for myself,
Because I assumed I knew
Where my lifepath should be taking me.
Having grown more mature and wiser,
I recognise that it’s not for me to know,
And I yearn for Thee to lead me on.

I’ve had enough of the times when,
Although my whole being
Seemed to be filled with nothing but fears,
Wilfulness and pride ruled my life.
Help me to leave this part of me behind
And lead Thou me on.

As long as Thy wisdom and love
Is guiding me from within
The very core of my own being,
I shall always be safe.
Then o’er moor and fen,
Crag and torrent,
Lead Thou me on,
Until all traces of darkness
Have gone from me and my world.

On waking each morning
With my inner vision I now see
The Angels smiling at me.
Even though I thought I’d lost them,
They never left me and
I never stopped loving them.
Bless each one of them for me.

May every cell and atom in it
Regenerated and restored to
Its normal healthy functioning.

Have been searching for such a long time.

May every one of Your children of the Earth

The Serenity Prayer

Serenity Prayer - Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers for Comfort & Healling

Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
Grant me the serenity to accept
The things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

There is also a less well known, but equally beautiful part:

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardships and pain as the road to healing and peace.
Knowing that our world is a sinful one,
But becoming ever more aware that everything
That happens in it serves a wise higher purpose.
That’s why I now take it the way it is
And not yet as I used to think it should be.
I rest safely in the knowledge that
Some day in the not too distant future it will be that way,
Because God in the end will make all things right
And that which is ugly in us and our world beautiful.
So I surrender my will to His/Her will and
Continue reasonably happy and content with my earthly existence.
On the inner level of life I have always been at one with my Creator.
This state will continue forever when I move into the world of light
For good and am then free to explore ever higher levels of life.

Help Me To Believe

Rays of Wisdom - War And Peace Between Nations - Unbelief

O Holy Trinity,
Great Spirit, Father/Mother Creator,
And Your only born Son/Daughter,
The Spirit of the Universal Christ,
Light of all lights and Sun of all Suns,
Please hear my prayer.
I so very much want to believe in You and trust.
Although I know that Your love and mercy are
Endless and as deep as the deepest ocean of our world,
And that Your forgiveness and understanding
For the trials and tribulations
Of all human hearts is very real,
But still I doubt.

Through an ever increasing understanding
Of the mysteries of my own existence and Yours,
And my relationship with You,
Help me to overcome every last trace of my unbelief.
Let my perceptions no longer be based on
Mere surface words, but a deep inner knowingness
Of the hidden meanings behind the texts of
The sacred teachings of our world.
And assist every one of Your children of the Earth
To grasp Your wisdom and truth,
The way many did in past lifetimes,
When this kind of consciousness was known as gnosis.
Help all of us to enter into this state.

The spiritual rebirth our race has for so long been waiting for,
Is dawning at last and ever more of us realise
That it was You and Your helpers,
The Angels and Masters of the spirit world, our true home,
Supported by their assistants, who has lovingly guided
Each one of us through the dark night
Of thinking that we are struggling on our own
In earthly life.

I thank you for allowing me to know that this happened
For a wise higher reason, the same as everything else
That ever takes place in our world.
The dark night is necessary for every human being
Because it teaches us how to appreciate the joy
Of reconnecting and consciously being one again
With You and all life, when it eventually comes about.
That’s why all human beings first have to lose the awareness
Of their inner connection with You,
Although in truth nothing will ever be able to take it away.
At some stage of their development, all human beings
Have to work their way through the narrow tunnel
Of thinking that they are on their own.

Now that the Age of Aquarius is with us
And having become aware of my true nature again,
I rejoice that Your total and unconditional love
Is bringing us and our world a renewed understanding
Of Your eternal wisdom and truth,
So that ever more of us are consciously gaining
Access to the healing rays of the Universal Christ,
To do their share of bringing about
The rebirth of every soul and that of our world.

With all my heart and soul I beg of You and the Angels
That any lack of faith in You in all human hearts
Should be replaced by a deep inner awareness
Of Your Divine presence in everything that is
And therefore also in my companions and me.
Hand in hand with You and the Angels,
Each on their own and all of us together
Are walking back home into the
Conscious awareness of our true nature
And oneness with You.

Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
As surely as every night is followed by a new day,
Now that the darkest hour of humankind’s spirit and soul
Has almost run its course and is reaching its natural end,
May the radiance of Your Light reign supreme,
For ever and ever.

Amen

The Earth Reveals The Glory Of God

You ask me how I know there really is a living God,
Who rules the Universe – the sky, the sea, the Earth?
Who holds all creatures in the hollow of His/Her hand,
And puts infinity into one tiny grain of sand,
 
Who makes the seasons – summer, autumn, winter and spring,
Whose flawless rhythm is contained in every created thing,
Who makes the Sun rise at the break of day,
And gently gathers the stars and till next night tucks them away,
 
A God whose mighty handiwork defies the skill of man,
For none of us can alter His/Her great perfect Master plan.
What better evidence could there be to prove this Holy being
Than the wonders all around us that are ours just for the seeing?

Prayer For Healing And Peace

Dove of Peace - Healing Prayer - Rays of Wisdom - Healing Words & Prayers

O Holy Trinity of the Great White Spirit, Mother/Father of all life, and Your only born Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ, joy fills our hearts and souls that the dark night of the soul for humankind has almost run its course and is definitely drawing to its close, now that the Aquarian Age is with us. As we now know, on the inner level all is one and what any one of us does affects all life and lifeforms everywhere. The whole of Your Creation must be rejoicing and celebrating with us, because the troublesome energies of our world have been disturbing their vibrations for a very long time.

Having become aware that the powers that are in You are also in us, we want to make good where we once sinned and redeem ourselves. That’s why we ask You and the Angels and Masters around Your throne, and their helpers on the lower levels of the spirit world, to show us what kind of a contribution we can make towards the healing of each other, our world and everything that is in it, and also every aspect of our own being. You are the living God, the wise one within. Teach us intuitively the wise use of all Your powers, especially the one of infinite wisdom and love, never for selfish purposes but only for bringing peace and healing to wherever it is needed in all worlds and beings throughout the whole of Your Creation.

May Your will be our will and Your sacred words with their blessing and healing power be ours. May they flow from our hearts and souls into the soul of every individual human being, on this and the other side of the veil that separates our two worlds. And may they continue from there into the collective soul of our race and world and ultimately the soul of the whole of Creation. May the Divine spark in ever more human hearts and souls wake from its slumber and may this continue until Your loving Spirit has been fully born in our world and takes charge of it. For this purpose may Your prayers and ours join forces and harmoniously work together, so that our world once again finds peace the way it did during other golden ages of the past.

Please help ever more of us to become aware that every human being’s true nature is love, the same as Yours, and that love is the law of life. Teach us how to love wisely, the way You have always loved us. From love we have come and through the gift of the knowledge You are now allowing us access to, we are now returning into the conscious awareness of our oneness with You and all life. Help us to use the gifts and powers you have bestowed upon us wisely, with love and respect for the highest good of all in this world and all other worlds, now and forever. As Your children, we ask these things from You in the name of love, Your name and also ours. We welcome You, the living loving Spirit onto the Earth. Amen

About Prayer

Rays Of Wisdom - Words And Prayers Of Comfort And Healing - About Prayer

Then a priestess said: ‘Speak to us of prayer!’
And the prophet replied:
‘Most of you pray only in times of need and distress,
But wise ones also pray in the fullness of their
Joy and days of abundance.
What is prayer but the expansion of yourself into the living ethers?
For as long as you receive comfort through pouring
Your darkness and negativity into space,
At least make an effort to create balance
By also sharing your delights and joys with the Universe.
And don’t forget to give thanks for all that Earth life itself,
Your kind, patient and loving teacher,
Brings to you all your experiences,
So that through learning and growing
You become ever more heaven-tall.

For as long as human souls are still unaware of their true nature,
They can do nothing but weep and complain,
Wise ones, however, give thanks and praise to their Creator,
Whenever their soul summons them to prayer.
Until you become one of them,
Shed your tears and be comforted by God and the Angels.
Through them they bring you healing, as they draw closer to you.
When you learn to surrender all your troubles and woes
To them, your Highest or God Self,
You, the small earthly self, together with your soul,
Will soon be smiling again.

Whenever you go within to communicate
With your soul and pray,
Your consciousness rises to meet in the ethers those
Who are also praying at that very moment,
And whom you would otherwise be unable to contact or meet.
For each one of you I wish that,
In the long course of your evolutionary journey,
In the fullness of time, every one
Of your visits to your inner temple of the soul
Will be for nothing but spiritual ecstasy
And sweet communions with God and the Angels.
I beg of you, when you go there,
Take care not to make demands on them.
Isn’t it enough that you are allowed to enter the temple
And just be there for a while,
To be recharged with their loving energies?

Nobody can teach you how to pray in words.
The Divine does not listen to your words,
Save when S/He utters them through your lips.
And as all of you can only learn from their own experiences,
You have to find out for yourself
The prayers of the oceans, forests and mountains.
The only ones who know their prayers in their hearts
Are those who were born in these places.

And if you listen in the stillness of the night,
You will be able to hear their silent pleas:
‘Our God, who art our winged self,
It is Thy will in us that willeth,
It is Thy desire in us that desireth,
And it’s Thy urge in us that turns our nights,
Which are Thine, into days,
Which are also Thine.
We cannot ask Thee for aught,
For Thou knowest everybody’s needs
Long before they are born into earthly life.

‘Each soul is born of Thy desires.
Thou art our need
And in giving us more of Thyself,
Thou givest us all.’

What Happens In Heaven When We Pray?

Praying Angel - What Happens In Heaven When We Pray - Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers of Wisdom From The Tree Of LifeThe other night in dreamtime I went to Heaven. One of the Angels welcomed me and showed me round. When I asked what happens here when we pray, it replied: ‘No prayer is ever unheard or unanswered. It’s just that after being filtered through the receiver station of the Akashic Records * on one of the highest levels of life, where they are constantly arriving. They are then checked by the group of Angels known as the Lords of Karma, who are in charge of the records, and the answer sometimes has to be a downright ‘No!’ or something quite different and unexpected. Because the law of life * is love and evolution, these Angels decide about the nature of the gift that should be given. The outcome depends on which lessons are likely to be most beneficial for the applicant’s present spiritual development.

This information is passed on to the Angel and its helpers in the first section of a department of the heavenly workshop which we are about to enter, so we can take a closer look at it. ‘This is the Receiving Section where the Lords’ responses to every one of the petitions that reached God are sorted,’ my Angel said. It was an extremely busy place with an Angel as supervisor and a great many spirit guides and helpers, who were following the instructions of the Lords. Each one is passed on to the relevant group of spirit guides and the Angel in charge of it, there are a great many, to be made a reality in earthly life.

Our next stop was the Packaging and Delivery Department. The Angel continued: ‘This is where every gift that has been asked for by anyone in earthly life is processed. Whatever has been granted is produced here and then despatched to the recipient.’ And because the hierarchy of the Angels is in charge of providing for the true needs of every human being, everybody in this section was working extremely hard. I had never seen such a busy place before!

But what a contrast, when we reached a door at the end of the department. We entered a very small room where, to my greatest surprise, only one Angel was sitting and doing nothing. ‘This is the Acknowledgment Section,’ my Angel friend murmured, obviously very embarrassed.

‘Why isn’t anyone working here?’ I asked.

‘Ah, it’s sad,’ sighed the Angel. ‘When people have received the things they asked for, very few have the presence of mind and good manners to thank us for it in acknowledgment.’

Never having given much thought to it myself, I queried: ‘What is the right way of acknowledging God’s blessings?’

‘It’s very simple,’ said the Angel. ‘It takes only a moment to quietly say: ‘Thank you, Great Spirit, Father/Mother Creator and the Angels for taking such good care of me and my loved ones.’
 
‘But what are the blessings we should give thanks for?’ I queried.

‘First of all give thanks and praise to your Creator for the gift of your life and everything that’s in it. For example, if there is food on your table, in your larder and/or refrigerator, and if you have clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place for sleeping, maybe even a comfortable bed, you are richer than seventy-five percent of your spiritual siblings in earthly life. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet and maybe a bit of spare cash somewhere, you are among the top eight percent of the world’s wealthy, and if you can read this on your own computer, you are part of the one percent who can do so.’

‘If you woke up this morning in a reasonable state of health rather than being ill, you are more blessed than the many who will not live to see another day on the Earth. If you have never experienced the fears of having to take part in a battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the hunger pangs of starvation, you are ahead of about seven hundred million people in your world. If you can attend church services without having to be afraid of harassment, arrest, torture or death, you are more blessed than three billion others in your world. And if you can hold up your head and smile, you are not the norm but an exception compared to the millions who live in doubt and despair in your world.’

‘I see what you mean and would like to do better in future,’ I said. But where does one start?’

The Angel replied: ‘If you have received this message and can read it, you just received a double blessing because someone loves you enough to have sent it to you. On top of that you are more blessed than over two billion people in your world who cannot see and/or read at all. Yet, that’s by no means all. When this appears before you, you are blessed many times over. For starters, someone on your behalf gave unselfishly of themselves and their most precious resource in earthly life: time. Unstintingly, they are giving it and sharing their skills to serve as our channel for writing this and bringing it to you. All of that is done without asking anything in return other than that you should find a better understanding of what happens on the higher and highest levels whenever someone prays on the earthly plane of life.

The next blessing is that their gift is coming to you with the help and will of God and us, the Angelic hosts. Without them nothing happens in the whole of Creation. And finally, when you are reading this, you are closer to God’s heart than you ever thought possible. This closeness to God’s heart brings about healing miracles and they are constantly happening through the energies of the Universe’s white healing magic. * I suggest you begin by giving thanks for all of that.’

Great Spirit, Father/Mother Creator of all life,
May all who read this find rest, peace and healing in You.
Thank you for each one of them being part of my life.

True Prayer

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - True PrayerThe following is the essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in ‘The Achievements Of Prayer’ Stella Polaris April/May 2017: ‘Did you know that there is such a thing as true prayer? If you are now asking yourself whether someone’s prayers are ineffective until they have learnt to access the power of this kind of prayer, rest assured that every sincere request is a true and effective one. The best way of praying in our view is with the simplicity of a child’s heart. Before God that’s what you truly are, after all. Children on the whole still have the ability to trust completely. Their prayers come from their hearts and go straight to God, whatever this means to them and that depends on into which civilisation they were born in their present lifetime. However, the understanding of the concept of God has for some time been in the process of changing, as increasing numbers of you are becoming aware that there is only one God. *

‘Generally speaking, for praying truly it is not necessary for human beings to wait until they have become initiates or even be particularly highly evolved. Simplicity, genuine humility and sincerity are the three most important factors in this context. Always bear in mind that prayer is a very powerful instrument, so consider very carefully what and how you wish to pray for anything specific. The best way of praying is by asking for something very simple, for example that the inflow of God’s love and light should constantly increase into everything taking part in earthly life. The finest way of praying is not for yourself but so that others may be blessed and healed with the help of your loving thoughts and words.

‘So, dear friends, together let us pray for the Divine spark of God to awake in ever more human hearts and for the blessing and healing of all humankind, the whole of your world and all other worlds and beings. Naturally, when all life is healing you cannot help doing the same. At the end of your prayer resign everything to God with the words: ‘May these things be done not my way, Great White Spirit, but Thine. Into Thy loving keeping I place all those I love and that is everybody. May Thy will be done on the Earth as much as anywhere else in the whole of Creation.’

And this is the essence of another teaching that reached me through the White Eagle Lodge’s Monday thought 3rd April 2017, when I had just completed the above item: ‘When you sit devotedly in meditation and contemplation and open your heart to the inflow of the Divine love, it is possible to become so raised in consciousness that you may be able to see the Angels. Hand in hand with God and the Angels each one of you will eventually reach this state of ecstasy and glory. It is a spiritual gift and this developing and bringing forth the Divine Fire through the love in your heart is every human being’s goal. Developing the sixth sense or psychic power is as nothing compared with it. When your soul can see the Angelic hosts *, you are dwelling in the abode of Christ, your true home.

‘We are not decrying psychic gifts, but in the natural course of evolution they eventually come for every human being. These gifts have their place, but they are very ordinary and by no means the be all and end all of anything. No-one should be content with developing them and then remain on that level. It is necessary for each one of you to reach beyond it to ever higher and eventually the highest levels of life.’

Visiting The Niagara Falls


 Rays of Wisdom - Words & Prayers Of Healing And Peace - A Virtual Trip to the Niagara Falls

For an excursion of a very special kind, please follow the link below to the:

‘Niagara Falls’

There we stand – or rather in our case – sit in awe and wonder as one small part after another of the beauty and wonder of God’s Creation unfolds before our eyes. Included in this are the ideas for the technological miracles that make it possible for us to go on such splendid journeys and can with equal ease take us to many other marvels of our world. At the top of your screen it says: ‘AirPano’. Click that and take it from there.

What power, glory and might are revealing themselves to us through things like these! And they are only there and appearing before us by the will and power of our Creator. There is no greater power than that. It not only controls our lives down to their smallest details but also brings new Universes, planets and solar systems and everything that dwells in them into being. It also holds them in their places, moves them through space and – when they have outlived their usefulness – destroys them again, at will. That certainly puts our existence on this planet into perspective and one cannot help marvelling at the sheer size and magnificence of life that is almost too great to grasp for our small earthly minds. Then at the latest my soul wants to go down on its knees, join the Swedish Pastor Carl Boberg and sing:

O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made.
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the Universe displayed.
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee.
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

We worship Thee,
We give Thee thanks,
We praise Thee for Thy glory.
In the name of love.

Amen

Of Your Creation, technical and otherwise,
With the reverence they deserve
And with love for You,
The One who brings all things into being
And who has created and constantly re-creates
Us and this splendid world for all to enjoy.

Guide and protect us and
Help us to make our contribution towards
Our own salvation and redemption,
Of each other, our world and
Everything that shares is with us.
Hand in hand with You and the Angels,
In accordance with Your will and wishes,
It shall be so, now and forever.

Amen

In The Healing Temple Of The Sun

A Meditation

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers And Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - In The Healing Temple Of The Sun

Become aware of your breathing. Deeply and slowly breathe into your abdomen and watch yourself growing ever more peaceful. Feel your mind and body calming down.

Now imagine you and I are standing on the shores of a lake whose water is perfectly still. The light that reflects in it at first makes it look like the softest of mother-of-pearl, but on closer inspection we notice that the colours are gently moving and mingling, in ever-changing hues. We become aware that we are not alone because an Angel has joined us, introduces itself as the guardian and keeper of the lake. It is a healing lake and if we wish to find the healing we are seeking, it helps to slowly and deeply breathe in the love of God and take it into our hearts. Following this advice, we notice that white wings of healing light are lovingly wrapping themselves around us.

The Angel points out to us that the lake consists of pools of water in different colours and that each colour has its own healing qualities. Green is for cleansing, a gentle blue for peace and relaxation, golden yellow for hope and vitality, amethyst for opening up humankind’s higher consciousness and so forth. The Angels tell us that it can tell by the look of people which pool is best for them. One after the other, it takes us by the hand and walks with us into the water we need. It feels refreshing and deeply cleansing. Floating on top of it, we notice how easily it carries us. Every movement we make is peaceful and effortless, making us feel loved, held and protected by the arms of our Divine Father/Mother.

In the East the rosy light of dawn is rising and a brightly shining Star shines above us. Our Angel explains that it’s Venus, the planet of love and peace, beauty and harmony,  appearing here as the Morning Star and an omen for the beginning of a new phase in the development of the whole of Creation, including us and our world. A new day is also dawning at this moment and everything is so peaceful and still that our whole being opens to the beauty around us. As the Sun rises above the horizon, its light unites itself with that of the Morning Star. Together they cast a path of golden healing light across the water, which at first is quite narrow but soon widens into a kind of golden highway. The Angel lifts us out of the water, takes our hand and together we walk along this highway, straight into the heart of the Sun. The Sun draws us ever closer and our hearts joyously respond to its pull and so we quite happily leave behind the water of the lake shimmering below.

As we come closer to the Sun, a circular temple comes into view. Transparent and filled with light, it looks as if it had been built of the finest alabaster. Tall pillars rise heavenwards. Up seven steps our Angel guides us, towards a golden arch at the entrance to the temple whose huge pillars make us feel tiny but not insignificant. It is hard to tell what these constructions are made of and whether they could be the Archangels themselves. Our Angel tells us that this is the Universal Temple of the Sun. As we enter, we become aware of the unity of all life, of God’s love that fills every cell and atom of the whole of Creation, holds them together and manipulates them with the power of sheer will. We feel our oneness with the Divine forces of life and that we too are a part of the Cosmic Order.

We feel drawn deeper into the centre of the temple and find ourselves gazing towards its domed roof. We feel the blazing light and warmth of a huge Star that pours its blessings into a large gathering of angelic and human healers and servers in white robes. All together we are silently waiting for the arrival of the Great Healer. The light of the Star grows ever brighter and more intense, and we sense that the presence of the Lord/Lady most high, the Universal Christ Spirit, is approaching. A ray of light flows directly from the Star into every heart and we feel our hearts opening wide and overflowing with the love and worship for our Creator.

The Universal Christ is the great healer of all life. Emerging from the light of the Star, S/He slowly takes on the human form the Angels talked about in the legend of the beloved Master Jesus. * His depiction was created as a channel and vehicle through which the Christ Spirit could communicate with us and our world. At first, it seems that the Sun is shining through this being. But no, the Christ is the Sun of all Suns, the light of life itself. S/He is the light.

After a while we notice a white couch in the middle of the temple. Ministering Angels are placing one sleeping patient after another on it and each one is blessed by the Great Healer. We are part of the group of healers and helpers and through being here are accepted by everybody into the brotherhood of the temple, who act as one. Love and light are filling our whole being and flowing from our hearts. Together with the Christ we focus on the new patients that are constantly arriving. Acting as channels of the Christ’s healing energies, we fill them with it and bless them. While we are doing this, we sense how something inside us is healing too and that the whole of Creation is healing with us. Here in the heart of the Eternal Sun Temple, outside earthly space and time all is one and we realise the meaning of ‘All for one, and one for all’.

The patients remain asleep and after each one has received their healing, the Angels take them to small individual sanctuaries to continue their rest. Countless numbers of them are dotted around the garden that surrounds the temple and each cubicle is glowing softly with the relevant healing colours. Our Angel explains that, when the patients have rested sufficiently, they return to their earthly consciousness.

Our Angel tells us that the Angels of Death bring spirits and souls, whose time for leaving earthly life has come, are also brought here. They are asleep when they arrive in the spirit world and are brought straight away into the presence of the Great Healer. When they have received the healing they need, they are moved to one of the sanctuaries, where they rest until they are ready to wake up into their new life. On opening their eyes, the first thing they see is the sunlit temple garden. It is just like a garden on the Earth plane though many times more beautiful. Their Guardian Angel helps them with getting used to their new surroundings and taking their first steps to the place where family and friends, who entered this world before them, are waiting in the sunshine to greet and welcome them.

Through the visit in the temple there grows in our hearts an increasing faith and trust in God’s Great Cosmic Plan * that guides and protects all life, individually and collectively, in the physical world as well as the infinite and eternal one of spirit. Everything is known and taken care of by the infinite and unbounded love, wisdom and power of the Great White Spirit. Our hearts respond to this knowledge with a joyous flow of feelings of worship and love for our Creator.

Alas, our healing session is drawing to a close. But listen! Where is that sound coming from? It’s the Angels singing. Gently, softly and a mere whisper at first but gradually swelling into a glorious melody. More and more voices are joining in the sweetest of harmonies. We add ours to them and sing: ‘S/He is Lord and Lady. S/He is risen from the dead and S/He is our beloved Lord and Lady. Every knee does bow and every tongue confesses that the Universal Christ is our true Lord and Master.’ This is followed by a song of thanksgiving, in praise and worship of our Creator, the Great Father/Mother of all life, which slowly rises into an almighty crescendo.

Eventually all sound subsides and with a tinge of sadness in our hearts we realise that it’s time for returning to our earthly duties. Taking another moment to wander through the infinite and eternal garden, we enjoy the beauty of its flowers and trees, the song of its birds, and the love and warmth of the Sun. Our Angel tells us that this place is the garden of reunion where all spirits and souls come to replenished and refreshed in dreamtime.

Giving thanks to our Angel for all we have seen and received, we say goodbye. Breathing deeply helps us to fully return into earthly consciousness and we use our earthly mind to become fully aware of our physical body again. We feel our feet, move our toes, stretch our arms, open our eyes and pay attention to our environment again. Prior to venturing out into the world, we protect ourselves by closing our energy centres, the chakras, and by sealing the brow, throat, and heart ones with a cross of light within a circle of light.

To Everything, There Is A Season

Rays of Wisdom - War And Peace Between Nations - To everything there is a season

To everything there is a season
And a time for every purpose under the Sun:
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time
To pluck up that which has been planted.

A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh.
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to cast away stones and
A time to gather stones together.

A time to embrace and
A time to refrain from embracing.
A time to lose and a time to seek.
A time to tie up and a time to untie.

A time to rend and a time to sew.
A time to keep silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace –

He has made everything beautiful, in its time.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

To everything there is a season and
Everything happens for a wise higher reason.
There were times when during our earthly sojourns
We had forgotten God’s true nature and our own;
When we thought that the death at the end of
Each one of them was the end of everything;
When we didn’t know that our departure from one level of life
Means to be reborn into our true home
And returning into the awareness of our real nature.

Our ignorance sucked us and our world ever deeper
Into the patriarchy with its warmongering
That dragged us into times of ever more seriously
Hurting and wounding others and being wounded.
All human souls have to imbibe thoroughly
The lessons this brings to us and our world
To help us differentiate between conditions of war and peace.
Out of the suffering of such evolutionary periods grows
The wisdom and understanding we need
For the permission from the Highest to return into
The knowledge of who and what we truly are.
This renews and rekindles
Our kinship and friendship with all life.

Rejoice, that time is now.
A time for finding forgiveness and healing,
For ourselves, each other, our world and all worlds,
For attending to and blessing the soul wounds of all lifetimes,
Our own and everybody else’s,
As well as those of our world.
That’s what the Age of Aquarius means to me.

Ecclesiastes is one of the most ancient parts of the Old Testament. It has its roots in Judaism and from there they penetrate ever deeper into the much older spiritual traditions of the Middle East and Africa, and in particular the Ancient Egyptian religion.

Hallelujah

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers & Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Hallelujah

Now, I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord.
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift.
The baffled King composing hallelujah.

Your faith was strong, but you needed proof.
You saw her bathing on the roof.
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you.
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair,
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah.

You say I took the name in vain.
I don’t even know the name.
But if I did, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light in every word.
It doesn’t matter which you heard:
The holy or the broken hallelujah.

I did my best, it wasn’t much.
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch.
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you.
And even though it all went wrong,
I’ll stand before the Lord of song
With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah.

Our New World

Rays Of Wisdom - Prayers & Words Of Wisdom From Around Our World - Our New World

As our thoughts create our reality,
Let’s take a moment here and there
To visualise Mother Earth as a place
Where people live together in peace and harmony.

There is only one God, the God of love,
And only one religion, the religion of love.
There are no more wars and no hunger and thirst.
Because everybody takes only what they need,
Everybody is well fed, housed and clothed,
And has a plentiful supply of clean water.

Each child is equally loved and encouraged
To bring forth the best that is within them
To develop the special gifts and talents
You, O Great Father/Mother of all life,
So richly bestow upon every human being.

Hearts are more important than heads.
And Your wisdom and truth are revered.
People are aware of Your laws and live by them.
That’s why Divine justice and fairness rule supreme.
Nature is honoured and the air we breathe is pure and clean.
The animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms are cared for
And treated with the respect and kindness they deserve.

Happiness and laughter prevail in this world,
Where once again we are walking
Hand in hand with God and the Angels,
The way we used to do a long time ago.
Thank You, Creator and the Angels and Masters
Around Your throne for granting
Us the gift of understanding combined with
The courage and humility to spread far and wide
The light of Your sacred wisdom and truth.
May our whole world be blessed and healed by You.
In the name of love we are asking this,
Your true name and ours.

Amen
