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.

Walking In Faith

Walking In Faith by Nicola Karesh

Praying for souls to be washed clean and made pure.  Sometimes, death may be the stabilising force that returns us to “balance.”

When a brother or sister commits acts of evil in the world, I wonder how the Buddha would respond to them?  Picturing all of the great souls… Jesus, Martin Luther King Junior, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, St. Francis of Assisi… How  would they greet any lamb who had gone astray?  Feeling their presence and guidance in this moment, to follow our hearts home….

A message coming forth from Quan Yin, the Buddhist Goddess of compassion,  to let “it” go to Spirit.  There we will find the answers that exceed our earthly expectations.

I open to compassion and forgiveness, for there is my true salvation and freedom.

May our loving hearts open wide to transmit a unified force of love and healing in the world.  May our intentions once again be pure through each other and ourselves.

May we walk in faith to be that bigger picture in life.
