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.

Sunshine And Rain



We wouldn’t enjoy the sunshine,
If we never had the rain.

We couldn’t appreciate good health,
If we never had a pain.

If we never shed a teardrop
And always wore a smile,

We’d all get tired of laughing,
When we’d done it for a while.

Everything serves a wise higher purpose,
The bitter as well as the sweet.

Both are required for teaching us
And making our lives complete.

The Light Of Your Soul



The inner light of your soul is love.
May it guide you and bless everything you touch
With the love and warmth that’s in your heart,
So the beauty of your spirit and soul
Shines through all your endeavours.

May the sacredness of your work
Bring healing, light and renewal
To you and all those you get in touch with,
Who receive and benefit from your efforts.

May what you are doing never weary you,
But release within you the eternal wellspring of
Inspiration and reveal to you the beauty and wonder
Of the magic and miracle of our earthly existence.

May the true you always be present
And manifest itself in everything you do,
So you will never again be lost
In the illusions of the material world.

May you meet each new day burden free and
May every dawn find you awake and alert,
Because with the help of the Angels in dreamtime
Your whole being was filled with the promise
Of endless and unlimited potential and possibilities.

Every evening may you feel gracious and fulfilled.
May your nights be spent feeling blessed, sheltered and protected
Safe in the knowledge that your soul forever rests serenely,
In the loving arms of your Highest Self,
The living God within and His/Her Angels.

Two Messages Of Hope



As far as the theme of hope is concerned, there is never anything new under the Sun. Through the German poet and philosopher, historian and playwright, Friedrich von Schiller, 1759–1805, the following message of hope was given to our world in troubled times. Its German title is ‘Hoffnung’ – hope. Two different versions of it are presented here. The first one is a masterly translation by a very special friend of mine, who wishes to remain nameless.

Hope

We speak and dream so very much
Of a future in the Sun.
Towards that happy golden goal
We struggle and we run.
The world gets old, then young again –
Still hope is humankind’s refrain.

Hope guides us into life’s great flow
And flutters over cheerful youth,
Enthuses us with magic glow,
In old age too remains our truth
And in the grave that ends our ways
We plant fresh hope for other days.

No vague or empty promise here,
By a foolish mind begot
The heart proclaims it loud and clear:
‘We’re born for a better lot!’
And what the inner voice makes plain
The hopeful heart does not disdain.

Friedrich von Schiller


* * *

The second translation is the work of my inner teacher and Highest Self. It’s how I imagine Schiller would write his poem if he were here with us and writing it, now.

Hope

Having discovered that our
Thoughts and words create our reality,
Let’s do our share of bringing a one about
By talking and dreaming
Of better and happier days to come
In a new golden age of plenty
In a world without suffering and pain,
Where hunger and thirst, sickness and death,
Wars, violence and crime are no more.
Constantly renewing itself, our world grows old.
Yet, throughout the ages humankind
Has steadfastly been holding onto this dream
Because it was once programmed into its soul.

That’s why hope guides us into earthly life
And happily surrounds us throughout our days,
Bewitching us with its magical shine.
And no matter how old and weary we get,
Because it is firmly implanted in every human heart,
Hope never leaves us and dies.

Even though each earthly lifetime ends in the grave,
Hope belongs to our spirit and soul
And accompanies us into the beyond.
It is much more than a flattering delusion
And an elixir that only flows from the brains of fools.
Wise ones, who listen within,
Hear the small still voice of the living God,
Who is coming alive in ever more hearts, whispering:
‘For something greater than earthly life humankind was created.
A high and holy destiny awaits each one of you!’
Our own Christ nature thus reveals itself to us.
It never misleads or betrays the trust we place in it.

Friedrich von Schiller
Freely translated by Aquarius

Climb Every Mountain



Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every byway,
Every path you know.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.

Jordan Smith

And Even The Light Of The Sun



And even the light of the Sun will fade, at the last,
And the leaves will fall, and the birds will hasten away,
And I will be left in the snow of a flowerless day,
To think of the glories of spring, and joys of a youth, long past.

Yet be silent, my heart! Do not count it a profitless thing,
To have seen the splendour of the Sun, of grass and flower!
To have lived and loved! For I hold that, to truly love if but for an hour,
Is better for man and woman than endless cycles of blossoming spring.

From ‘Magdalen Walks’
Oscar Wilde
