“Do you know, Mary, that the Star is standing above our roof?”
“I know, Joseph.”
“And do you also know Whom this Star proclaims?”
“The Messiah!”
Joseph swallowed hard – but he said no more. He only bowed his head over Mary’s hand, which was lying on the blanket.
Mary felt the back of her hand grow moist with Joseph’s tears; she did not stir.
Soon the deep silence was disturbed by a timid knock. Joseph rose and opened the door.”

– Joshua Ben Yahweh. –

The Full Cold or Long Night Moon in Gemini will shine its beauty on December 3rd. This Moon invites us to examine communications with ourselves, and world around us. Do we walk our talk or make compromises for the sake of our convenience? Do we realize the power of our words and the ripples they create on the fabric of existence? Grandmother Moon helps us look deeply within and amplify our intuition and emotional power.

High recognitions . . . You want to know what a sleeping soul is?

24129585_1068457519962897_965318385184918653_n (1)

 

” You want to know what a sleeping soul is?
Think of a sleeping person.
He continues to breathe, because his body does it for him.
But he knows nothing of himself.
He is alive, but he gains nothing from this life.
Do you understand what I mean?”

~ Buddha

December Contemplation . . . One Solitary Life…!!!

23843160_1333903046737677_6053192675047236479_n

He was born in an obscure village
He worked in a carpenter’s shop until He was 30
He never wrote a book, He never held an office
He never had a family or owned a house
He did none of those things usually associated with greatness
He had no credentials but himself.
He was only 33 when the tide of public opinion turned against Him.

His friends ran away
He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial.
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.

While He was dying His executioners gambled for the only property He had on earth – His clothing
When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

TWENTY CENTURIES HAVE COME AND GONE,

AND TODAY
HE IS THE CENTRAL FIGURE OF THE HUMAN RACE.
ALL THE ARMIES THAT EVER MARCHED,
ALL THE NAVIES THAT EVER SAILED,
ALL THE PARLIAMENTS THAT EVER SAT,
AND ALL THE KINGS THAT EVER REIGNED,
HAVE NOT AFFECTED THE LIFE OF MAN ON THIS EARTH,

AS THAT……….ONE SOLITARY LIFE

To the sage, all of life is a movement toward perfection.

12633657_920671911362863_4771017599425128836_o (1)

“Allow your life to unfold naturally.
Know that it too, is a vessel of perfection.
There is a time for being ahead.
There is a time for being behind.
There is a time for being in motion.
There is a time for being at rest;
A time for being vigorous, and a time for being exhausted.
To the sage, all of life is a movement toward perfection.”

~ Verse 29, The Tao Te Ching

That is where your power is.

When you can’t control what is happening around you,
challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what is happening.
That is where your power is.
