WE ARE INFINITY

We are infinity.
Flowing through time
and moving with the heartbeat of the Universe -
sent out from the heart and mind of the Creator
as pulses of infinite Love and BE-ing.
We stretch forwards into the realms of tomorrow
and back into the aeons of history,
ever present at the crossing point of the NOW.
Envoys and explorers;
facilitators and Co-Creators:
All in our right place
and all connected with the rhythm that is LIFE
in all its seasons and glories.

time is not enough

Time is not enough
Therefore we need No Time.
No time at all to do what we want,
Yet all the time in the world.
The Universe calls out its’ song,
A reminder of times past and times future.
Pause, sit and listen - and absorb its wisdom.
Allow your body physical to take in the notes
Of harmony and discord,
For all is the same in equality and truth.
In the vibrations and sound
Reside experience and knowledge.
Let the knowingness flow over, around and through.
Take no time to analyse
But allow your Self to bathe in the Light.
For reality is that there IS no reality.
Life is an enigma.
To break the code you need do no more than Be.
Allow, Accept, Release and Be.
Hand all over to the One, the Source -
For that is you, it is me, it is ALL.
What the One gives out, it receives also.
We are the question and the answer;
The searching and the solution.
What has been forgotten will be remembered
And in the remembering we become One once more.

shadows and light

THE MARRIAGE:

I am the Light within your darkness; the dark within your Light.
Unknowing, we swam through the seas of conscious and unconscious reality
Where all was not as it seemed - it never is, never was and never will be.
For life is but a composition from the mind of the Creator,
Bless-ed in its knowingness; sacred in its innocence.

Full of love and joy; fear and pain we travelled the roads mapped out before us.
Then, at a crossing point of potential, we met
And there, in your heart, I saw my own
And reflected in your eyes I saw the passions of our lives
Which encircled us in the never ending Sea of Possibilities.

You reached for me - as I reached for you
And felt our hearts combine and blend in a cornucopia of Bliss,
All that we ARE realised and revealed in all its Glory and Majesty -
A soul complete, masterful and magical;
Proclaiming its presence upon the stage that we call Life.

The cry rang out and reverberated through the Heavens;
Through the Earthly foundations and through the Great Web of Knowing.
It is done! We are ONE!
Joined in Unity, with Love and in Joy
And in full and complete recognisance of who - and what - we are.

STRENGTHS OF THE ARCHANGELS

The Archangelic Guardians’ Light is always with me:
The Faith of Jophiel and his Guidance expands me
The Staff of Raphael and his Wisdom heals me
The Strength of Haniel and his Light illuminates me
The Fire of Tzadkiel and his Inspiration frees me
The Fanfare of Gabriel and his Joy enriches me
The Arms of Chamuel and his Love enfolds me
The Hammer of Metatron and his Strength empowers me
The Presence of Sandalphon and his Stability grounds me
The Scroll of Uriel and his Knowledge guides me
The Sword of Michael and his Truth protects me
The Power of Azrael and his Possibilities enthuse me
I AM surrounded by the Light of their Love.
I AM ONE WITH THEM: THEY ARE ONE WITH ME.

THE TRAVELLERS

We came to Avalon: footsore, weary, travellers three
And there upon the sacred isle we set foot
Bound by Love and sacrifice; spent yet strong.
Rootless in body, yet anchored in Soul.
Isis set her gently smiling face upon us there
Bestowing relief from the hurts that beset us;
Gifting the heart space to grieve; to mourn,
Whilst the soul settled and licked its wounds.
The birds gave out their song in sweet remembrance
As bees wove their dance to the Sun, in tribute and honour
And blossoms showered us with blessings of fragrance and grace
Each sound and action balm to the soul and release to the heart.
In peace and quiet solitude the Earth reflected her love
And with the waters of the night we were freed,
And in the mists of the dawning day we were found again
Held close in the arms of Eve: refreshed and restored.

WE HAVE A CHOICE.....

Do we want a world with resources divided according to greed, hypocrisy and nepotism?
Where “who you know” and how much you can grab is the rule.
And in the rush to seize and hoard the precious assets
and make profits that sit in vaults unseen and gather dust
no care or thought is given to the rest, the majority of mankind,
who toil for hours to make a crust to feed their kin
or sit devoid of hope in the dirt, imprisoned in their poverty
waiting for life to give them a reason for being - or come to an end.
What use the natural medicines that cannot be patented and so are not made
so that millions can be made from peoples misery and pain?
What use a cure for diseases, whose distribution depends on affluence and profit
and not on compassion for the suffering of those who walk the Earth with us?
What use the billions spent on cosmetics and creams for the self-obsessed,
when illness and disease; famine and death shows itself on the face of the world’s poor?
What use the acres of trees gone up in smoke or fed into the teeth of machinery
that consumes our planets eco-systems to feed a need that does not exist?
What use an animal or bird, devoid of habitat and lost and alone -
motherless; homeless and only valued too late, when it is gone forever?
What use the profits from weapons given to children to use in a war that is not theirs,
as their childhood is slaughtered along with their family?
What use the fortune daily poured into all the machinations of war across the planet
as blood runs in the gutters and men, women and children suffer and die?
The Gods and prophets shed bitter tears of sorrow
over lessons that have apparently gone unlearned,
their dreams of peace, love and brotherhood abandoned to dwindle and die.
Should we not speak out against injustice wherever it hides;
let truth, Light and honour shine forth from our soul
so that all who see us may absorb our words
and take heart from what they feel and know to be fair.
There is surely no place for those who would hide in the shadows
and seek to deprive their fellows of the justice they would ask for themselves -
living by one rule and imposing harsher rules on those beneath them.
What is fairness? What is freedom? What is peace?
Are we prepared to stand up and say ENOUGH!
Where do we draw the line………

THE LIGHT of duality SHINES

There is a light that shines in the darkness
A brilliant beacon guiding us home.
It illuminates our lives,
Sheds light on our worries and fears
And brings hope to the weary traveller.

Without darkness we cannot know light.

We fear we travel our path in isolation
Yet many tread in our footsteps
As we tread in those of the ones who have gone before
Taking courage from their example
And adding our imprint to theirs.

Without fear we cannot know strength

The light is our guide, our hope and our joy.
We see it shining clear and strong,
And in its light we may perceive
The forms and faces of those loved and thought lost,
Now safe and secure in the light’s warm glow.

Without sadness we cannot know joy

Do not mourn, for we are never alone.
Those who have gone before are with us still
Encouraging and supporting us on our way.
In their peaceful serenity we are calmed,
And comfort taken by their shining presence.

Without death we cannot know life

We come to live, to love and experience.
This is the gift of the earthly plane -
To give knowledge of the world of polarity
So that we may learn from lessons taught
And in understanding become complete once more.

Without separation we cannot know unity

(©Hilary Hargreaves 2005)

A NEW TAKE ON THE GREAT INVOCATION:

From the point of Light where Heart belongs
Let there stream forth Love.
From the point of Light where Mind belongs
Let there stream forth Wisdom.
From the point of Light where Form belongs
Let there stream forth Beauty.
From the point of Light where Soul belongs
Let there stream forth Peace.
From the point of Light where ALL belong
Let there stream forth Harmony.
And with the point of Light where we all are ONE
Let there be Joyous Reunion.
