I am so grateful for the gift of Faith.







“When I am alone and frightened, Faith is there. When it appears
my resources and reserves are diminished, Faith is there.
I am so grateful for the gift of Faith.”

#FridayFantasy . . . I asked her…how she understood the world so clearly.




“I asked her how she did it once, how she understood the world so clearly.
She told me that it was a matter of keeping very still and showing no emotions,
leaving room for others to reveal themselves.”


From “Circe,” Madeline Miller.

#PoeticThursday . . . . Fairy Song




Fairy Song.

Shed no tear! oh, shed no tear!
The flower will bloom another year.
Weep no more! oh, weep no more!
Young buds sleep in the root’s white core.
Dry your eyes! oh, dry your eyes!
For I was taught in Paradise
To ease my breast of melodies,—
Shed no tear.

Overhead! look overhead!
‘Mong the blossoms white and red—
Look up, look up! I flutter now
On this fresh pomegranate bough.
See me! ’tis this silvery bill
Ever cures the good man’s ill.
Shed no tear! oh, shed no tear!
The flower will bloom another year.
Adieu, adieu—I fly—adieu!
I vanish in the heaven’s blue,—
Adieu, adieu!”

By John Keats

High recognitions . . . There is an increasing desire to return to what is “natural.”






“There is an increasing desire to return to what is “natural.” People are seeking a more
natural way of living, desiring to reform life so that it will become fairer, healthier,
and more beautiful. Understandably, nevertheless, all these tendencies constitute only
a starting point for the true and complete rebuilding that shall come. For only complete
reform can bring forth salvation, which never could have arisen from the old and the past.”


– Roselis von Sass
The author draws inspiration from
The Grail Message “In the Light of Truth”
by Abd-ru-shin

And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep…




“And if tonight my soul may find her peace in sleep,
and sink in good oblivion, and in the morning wake
like a new-opened flower then I have been dipped
again in God, and new-created.”

D. H. Lawrence

#AustraliaBushFires . . . Our children will bear witness




Be a witness:

We see you as your rain forest burns
ancient green lungs erupting into flame
we hear your anguished cries
the same ones mass media ignore
we will give a voice to the voiceless

We will be a witness

Greed and eco terrorism rule
trade deals and wealthy landowners
deal in secret handshakes and dirty money
genocide ecocide sabotage corruption and lies
human impact fuels the flames

We will be a witness

This holy green cathedral burns
sacred land and sentient beings fall
billions promised for bricks and mortar
the hypocrisy of government and religion
trying to blind us to the truth

We will be a witness

We each need to look within
reassess our individual greed
reassess our individual need
make change and take account
all living beings equal

We will be a witness

No fear only love
no violence only action
no longer blind we see
we choose to rise
in gentler ways

Our children will bear witness
