Two Soul Birds

In the tree of the material body, the individual soul and the Supreme Soul, or Supersoul, are sitting like two friendly birds.  The first bird (the individual soul) is eating the tree's fruits, which are happiness and distress.  The second bird (the Supersoul) is simply watching.  Although these two birds are friends, and although they are of the same spiritual quality, the Supersoul is the master and the individual soul the servant.  But the individual soul has forgotten this relationship, and thus he must transmigrate from one tree to another, or from one body to another.  The individual soul is struggling very hard on the trees of innumerable material bodies, but as soon as he agrees to accept the guidance of the Supersoul, the supreme spiritual master, he immediatly becomes free from all lamentations.

The Starry Princess

The starry Princess gazed up at the night sky.  
All the stars illuminated her mind.
Beyond their glow,
beyond their burn-
was another realm, a secret world.
All the idols in her life,
were but idols she watched fade and die.
When she looked up into the stars,
she could perceive time coming undone.
"How is it the stars hang like lights
against a black darkened sky?
Who put them there?
Who created such mystery?
Who is the creator that really wrote the stars history?"
She pondered on through the night
about such questions that lay veiled behind
a moon filled blackened sky.
When the Princess's intensity of her search ceased to end,
she witnessed something magical from Heaven sent.
Shooting straight in front of her like a jeweled crown,
the star blazed a message from it's secret place.
"Look beyond my lit up face.
There you will see the King himself.
The Creator, the Beloved, you're one true Friend.
Do not be fooled by what your two eyes see.
There lies deception and treachery.
My light will fade but His always shines.
Look with your spiritual eye.
His love burns for all eternity.
Your heart is all he keeps."

A Choice of Faith

Make a choice wisely, because each choice you make is a creative act of spiritual power for which you are held responsible.  Further, any choice made from faith has the full power of heaven behind it- which is why "faith the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain."  And any choice made from fear is a violation of the energy of faith.

A Nobler Doubt

Doubts of your existence flood my mind.  I question whether or not you even exist.  I do not entertain this thought for to long.  There is a nobler doubt in question.  And that is since I must die and everything in this world does, then is this life just a dream that I will awake from when death takes me?

If your presence is inside of me, then will it not be with me always?  Layers upon layers of reality peel away when I contemplate your existence.

The Story of Sapphire and Arion: Sapphire's Letter to Arion

Dear Beloved,

How do I detach myself from you?  How do I stop dwelling on your memory?  How do I move forward?  I know I must let you go, but I don't know how to.  If what holds me back is faith, then the only choice is to hand it over completely to God. 

Our relationship is complicated, yet it is utterly profoundly simple.  Being human has huge drawbacks.  I am limited.  I am scared.  My greatest fear is that you will forget me, I too must lay it to rest.

My heart tells me that all I have to do is completely trust God and let Him do the rest.  I pray I can let your memory go, so something new can emerge in it's place. I know on my search for truth, I am never alone.  I do feel your presence inside of me. 

I pray you are well and that you feel God's presence in your life.  May our souls find rest in knowing that love never dies, it transforms the world around us.

Your Darling

Other Folks

How strange the lovers must be to other folks.  Lovers know the secret of eternity.  They run back and forth from this world and the next, as if it is natural and effortless to pick up the soul- journeying to hidden places that only they know the entrance into.
