Bless The Souls

Lost souls are falling down into the darkness
Falling by the wayside
As we continue to fail them one by one.

We fail them when we forget who we truly are at our heart center
And instead, mask as lies, deceipt and disingenuousness.
We fail them when we place the false idols of corruption, intimidation and greed
Before the basic goodness of loving care and right action.
We fail them when injustice and inequality takes a front seat
Instead of honouring the sacredness of each red, yellow, white, black and brown soul
All lovingly and deliberately placed on this earth plane for their highest good
And for our own.

Every loss, every missed step, every mis-step,
Every unheard bellow for salvation and heaven on earth
Calls us to step up our “game,”
And take our seat at the council table for all of humanity,
For all of life.

To declare our intention
To do good
To see good
To recognise it
Praise it
Inspire it for all who come under our radar and beyond
To shine God’s merciful Light brightly, consistently.

For there are lives whose continued existence are affected
by our non-actions and our inspired actions.
Who are you called to be in this moment
And what, if anything, are you being called to do?
Now. This very day. This exact moment.
Not an off in the distance, fleeting hope without shape and form,
But a crystal clear vision that is lovingly rooted in the now
Honed with absolute precision and grace.

May each soul here feel blessed and may we in turn pass on the offering, so that in time, darkness will have nowhere to grow and all beings may realise peace
And so it is brothers and sisters.
Amen.

Closer Than My Breath

Can you feel a little love? Dream on, dream on… (Depeche Mode playing in my mind)

Closer Than My Breath by Nicola Karesh

God is inevitable.
Why not rush the doors of heaven
Now?

Engage your will with
The biggest game
In town.

Suffer no setbacks
As you are taken over
And stand no more.

(Dream on… dream on.)

I am feeling love
Closer than my breath.
Here.  Right here. 

It overshadows all that
Pretended to come before.

Forever Love

 

Forever Love by Nicola Karesh      

(For my dear friend Carolyn, in remembrance of your brother Robert Carr.  My love and prayers to you and your family…)

As you gently depart the earth,
Your soul is free,
Yet we feel your heart.

Whatever you experienced while you were here,
We wish you love,
We fare thee well.

Angels will always have your back.
They accompany you forever,
Even in the dark.

Robert, my brother,
God rest your soul,
Cradled, at peace, in His hold.

We cherish you
And send you off.
We never will forget your spark.

You light a path to the heavens above.
You fill our hearts now
With a forever love.
