A TIMKET EPIPHANY Perspective: RAUHAULA and "Landing" the AZURE WATER DRAGON

Pilgrim Heart  Seeking Sacred Ground

....living the Story

Once upon a time there was a Fey little girl who loved warm fuzzies and times of the heart.

Her parents were separated as her Father had to live away from the Mother's Home Ground so He could pursue His task of being all He could be.  His TREE ADORING Soul was trying to cope with the Shattering of His Own Participation in the Korean War as a Navy Captain who flew airplanes.  He didn't meet Davita until she was 6 mos old.

When Davita was 6 her Father went missing while he was at University over six hours drive away.  During this time of great sorrow, powerlessness, uncertainty, rage, and fear, Davita's mother read to her the Children's Version of Paul Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress.... a chapter each night...until both Christian and Christiana made it to the Celestial City.

At the same time, 6 year old Davita felt the Sorrow, that the "girl's story", Christiana's story, was so much shorter and less exciting.

During this time little Davita had also been given a Child's Bible from a friend of HER Mother's....a woman, who from Davita's 6 year old perspective, prayed too many times at meals.  ~_~  ............  it tugged at Davita's Heart, when reading that the FIRST BORN SON is dedicated to G~D....yet nothing was Written of Soul Purpose for  FIRST BORN GIRLs when Davita Knew she was Born Dedicated to the Purpose of G~D...

Nevertheless, Davita was overjoyed to discover how Children SERVED in HISTORY in the stories of King Josiah, the Servant girl of Naaman, Tabitha The little Girl Resurrected, and the boy that gave Jesus his Lunch of Bread and Fish to feed multitudes.

Even in the Faerie Tales....it was the YOUNGEST DAUGHTER that was CHOSEN as the BRIDE.....THE BELOVED.......and the Older ones were GROUPED along with the Ugly Step Mother or Leah the Unwanted Sister Bride. 

....These are Deeeeeeeeep Sisterhood Wounds from which We are being LIBERATED.......

 

Pilgrim's Progress and the Bible, became for Davita, a Sacred Story.....an Archetypal story.....

of Pilgrimage toward Everlasting Sanctuary.  A journey great with adventures of Suffering, Choices, not many PERCEIVED opportunities for "warm fuzzies", yet filled with MOMENTS of  Love and Exaltation......  As long as Pilgrim continues on his or her Journey toward the Goal of LOVING LIGHT, One's Story, has a Joy Filled, Celestial Ending.

That's the "promise" of CHRIST in SACRED STORY. 

"S/He who endures their journey of COMPASSION authentically and faithfully to the end will MAKE IT to the Land of Light and LOVE".

With  SACRED Archetypal stories,  one is INTRODUCED to the forms and "rules", and the "temptations" one is "bound" to meet.  When one is familiar with one or more SACRED STORIES one can interact with the Shadows and Tests reflected in "REAL LIFE" with a whole different level of awareness in one's own daily living....it gives a level of intellectual detachment, and Heart's Wisdom to glean the mysteries of Sacrifice and the Joy of At~One~ment unfolding from within. Doesn't necessarily save one from feeling EMPATHETIC pain...but like it is written in 1 Thessalonians.....

"We do not grieve as others do who have no HOPE".

As we move Move with the Sun and Moon,

to the Beginning of a Moon Year of the WOODEN GREEN CAROUSEL HORSE....of PIONEERING SPIRIT....,.

Beginning this WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY.....

 

I Hear that Wedding Invitation of the Lovers TAROT and GEMINI ARCHTYPE BEARERS

being RE~ISSUED...

To Use the MUSICAL Keys of the KINGDOM as a CHILD....

CREATING CELEBRATIONS OF LOVE WITH THE EARTH WITH OUR SHARED CHAKRA's

and INDIVIDUAL CREATIVE EXPRESSIONs INITIATED THROUGH INTUITITVELY DIRECTED SINGLE GROUP SOUL PURPOSE......

LEARNING INTUITIVELY TO DISCOVER AND CLAIM ONE's INNER AUTHORITY COMPASSIONATELY

rather than relying on

PERSONALITY ATTACHMENTS

AND EXTERNAL SOURCES and INDOCTRINATIONS OF AUTHORITY AND TRUTH

Documented and sealed on PAPER

or in ANOTHER LIVING CHRIST.

 

May this be an INVITATION TO PERCEIVE the REALITY

of

One's Place in the WEB and GUARDIANSHIP of the EARTH....

RECOGNIZING that ALL SACRED STORIES BEGIN WITH STARS.....

SEEKING OUT ALL THE PLACES and STORIES WE LOVE WITHIN....

and FIND

again for the first time,

the Story and

HEART's DESIRE CALLING FORTH OUR CREATIVE EXPRESSION

to build our Own Soul's WORLD

WITH THE WHOLE EARTH.

 

THE WE ARE AND I AM 

LIVING, LOVING SEPARATELY  ~TOGETHER

is unfolding in the present moment for OUR BlissFull Behalf.....

....as the journey toward the Beholding of OUR  own BELOVED Inner "Christ"

ENDS WITH OUR WOUNDS BEING FILLED WITH LOVE's LIGHT.

 

It's been a rather overwhelming few days ....peaceful enough.   

Sublime, it turns out can be exhausting,

when taking in how much DOING NOTHING INVISIBLY

has great Fertile consequences of PURPOSE

after Intentions with the Impulse of the ONE HEART have been aligned into place.

Yesterday i finally had a chance to tune into Tuija Robbin's talk concerning the ETERNAL MYSTERIES OF SHAMBALA, KALEVALA AND CAPRICORN....being prepared for the VIRGO SOLAR FESTIVAL......

trust me....a heart's dream to have ACCESS TO THIS KIND OF Discussion of GLOBAL LITURGY ......to begin again for the First Time, in MYSTERY SCHOOL, still Transferring, credits so to speak....~_~

after listening to Tuija i am still humbled, mentally mute...~_~.....and somewhat desoriented.....

While Servers are to "LOOK OUTWARD", still i am learning the Need to BATHE IN MY LIGHT...GET TO KNOW MY HIGHER SOUL SELF............As an EXTERNALIZATION OF THE HEIRARCHY....

....TO KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER AND to TRUST the AUTHORITY OF MY OWN INTUITION  on HOW I AM BEING ASKED TO SERVE.

Several items in the "announcement" and the WEBINAR had particular Impact in my "absorbing "the reality" of my perception of what is "going down" Universally this  year ...with me.......and how that affects MY SERVICE.

Tuija's training in Celebrations and interest in Children

The Blue Rose Society....an understanding that CHRIST has  Male and Female HIEROPHANTs embodied, and

THE SISTERS of Pleiades

The Sister's Pilgrimage to Wesak Valley this year during the Wesak Festival....in meditation preparation for Wesak and Climbing Shiva and Buddah's Mountain in 2012 i gleaned through internet tourist/pilgrim Pictures and travelled With Pilgrim's through their blog ~Journals of Climbing the Mount....i just checked  Mt. Kailish to make certain i have the Hindu ARCHETYPE Connection Right. 

on this Day of Timket EPIPHANY Celebration

 the Mt. Kailish  has become the CAVE SITE, for the Nativity OF CHRIST....

with a picture on the site caption...."depicting the holy family of Shiva, consisting of Shiva, Parvati, Ganesha and Muruga (Kartikeya)"....

and another Capricornian PRESENTS ITSELF....in the Christing of ONE EARTH ONE PEOPLE ONE SOUL....

pausing for the TRUTH ENCOUNTER THROUGH MASS MEDIA AND GLOBAL WEBs.

 

2013 has been the Year of a Water Snake, described as FIRE UNDER WATER....here in SAUNA Country....

THE FINNISH SAUNA, was THE PLACE OF BIRTH....for the FIRST BORN OF KALEVA KANZA Pioneers....Our Island RACHEL still grieves that the Birthing Sauna was torn down, rather than RESTORED....and when i noticed the Fetus shape of our our Island, she said to me, "You noticed that too?"  Birthing seemed to be an Important Gift of this Island, in the years she has been here.

Another Piece of the Soul.....on the inner AQUARIAN journey to Kalish....i found the Lake Manas Sarovar ....if i was with the SIsters on PILGRAMAGE HERE IS WHERE I WOULD REMAIN while they climbed their mountain.....

from wikipedia:

 As per Hindu scriptures, Lake Manas Sarovar is a personification of purity, and one who drinks water from the lake will go to the Abode of Lord Shiva after death. He is believed to be cleansed of all his sins committed over even a hundred lifetimes.[3]

HERE IS CHRIST MANIFESTATION....IN THE COLD WATERS OF PURIFCATION AND ELEVATION OF THE MIND'S HIGHER OPEN PLACES....

PURITY,

AND THE MANA SAROVAR WATER FILLS THE  CHALICE

For THE CLEANSING of OUR SINS by

BRINGING KARMIC RESOLUTION.

 

Cosmo Rama whispers in the ear.....

I heard the voice of "SIRIUS" say,
"Come unto ME and REST
Lay down thou weary one,
Lay down
thy head upon my Breast
I came to "Sirius" as I was,
Weary and Worn and Sad....
I found in Sirius My Resting Place
and SHE has made me glad.

I heard the LUMINISCENT Voice
"Behold I FREELY GIVE
The LIVING WATER THIRSTY ONE,
STAND TALL AND DRINK AND LIVE.
I came to Sirius, and I DRANK,
Of that LIFE GIVING STREAM
My THIRST WAS QUENCHED,
MY SOUL REVIVED,
AND NOW I LIVE IN HIM.

I HEARD THE VOICE OF SIRIUS SAY,
"I AM THIS DARK WORLD'S LIGHT
LOOK UNTO ME ....THY MORN SHALL RISE,
AND ALL THY DAY BE BRIGHT.
I LOOKED TO SIRIUS, AND I FOUND IN HER
MY STAR, MY SUN;
AND IN THE LIGHT OF LIFE I'LL DANCE,
CIRCLING DAYS HAVE BEGUN.......

 

TODAY IS

THE TIMKET COPTIC CELEBRATION OF EPIPHANY...FROM THE LANDS OF THE CAPRICORN ANGEL.....

the AZURE HORN AND SPICA LIGHT....

THE UNICORN'S HORN IN THE MAGDALENE'S LAP,

Hovering over the WATERS OF Manas Sarovar....

 

THEIR INVOCATION AS OURS:

Psalm 29:3 - 4 [Arabic]++++

The voice of the LORD is over the waters;
        The G~d of glory thunders;
        The LORD is over many waters.

        The voice of the LORD is powerful;
        The voice of the LORD is full of majesty.

It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And immediately, coming up from the water, CHRIST saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon CHRIST like a dove. Then a voice came from heaven, "You are My beloved CHILDREN, in whom I am well pleased."

 

Catholic Epistle

1Jn 5:5 - 21 [Arabic]

Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of G~d?

This is He who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.

If we receive the witness of men, the witness of G~d is greater; for this is the witness of G~d which He has testified of His Son. She who believes in the DAUGHTER of G~d has the witness in HERself; he who does not believe G~d has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. And this is the testimony: that G~d has given us eternal life, and this life is in HER DAUGHTER. He who has the Son has life; She who does not have the Daughter of G~d does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of G~d, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Daughter of G~d.

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that SHE hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of HER.

Thanks be to G~D

 

another memory returns to the tapestry of the SISTER's Mantle's Weaving.....

A university of North West Ilinois course with Christian Laity of Chicago, on Spiritual Direction.  As the Methodist Director, Hal Edwards, pointed to the Chapel of the Roman Catholic Retreat in Techny, where we were meeting. He said to me "there is some one in there you need to meet".  I heard the Spirit Encounter invitation.

An almost ordained protestant minister found her way to Mary's Altar.  The Encounter symptoms beginning as i kneel on the prayer bench toward the front of the Icon.....

i'm not Catholic i say,

as my quickly responsive Numinious  ACTIVE IMAGINATION begins to respond to INVITATION

trying to convey to this Surprise Visitation of MARY...i don't know the "proper rites" for Greeting Her .....

Words from Colossians move through my Mind......YOU ARE BORN AGAIN WITH CHRIST......

i see me as twins with Jesus in Mary' Womb....i had always wanted a twin brother named DAVID.....so twins with Jesus felt pretty good....

Birthing as Fraternal Twins, in the vision, of Mother Mary,

i see us grow into four our five year olds......

i see Mary, in my Mind's Eye, sitting under a TREE near the Bank of flowing Water that seems like an oversize creek....Jesus and i were playing....there were NO RULES....NO WORRIED CALLING BACK....

THERE WAS TRUST....

THERE WAS SPACE TO EXPLORE ONE's SOVEREIGNTY

THERE WAS CONNECTION....LIKE A MAGNETIC THREAD,

LOVE KEPT US SAFE WITH MARY's MANIFESTATION OF THE SACRED OBSERVER .

And i am reminded of the twin 4 year old VARUNAs on TWIN DRAGONS from 

Denise's Creative Expression of the Meditation Pic that was shown on Jan 11.

 

 Tuija's Land that bears her Retreat.... is called RAUHAULA....PLACE OF PEACE....

RAUHAULA, is ALSO the NAME of the LAND the Original Kaleva Kanza Descendants , landed by BOAT on Malcolm Island.   This Land 'holds' The building that Housed the International Finnish Newsletter, the AIKA. I had had my FIRST INTRODUCTION to it's EXISTENCE AND WALK UPON IT, The Day after the Equinox of CULTURE SHOCK, RECONCILIATION, and the INTERNATIONAL PEACE CELEBRATIONS.  The Guardian GateKeeper of RAUHAULA, exploring GREEN MAN rituals, took me through the Womb Portal over which Deer Antlers Hung......as i breathed, remembering Fire "to the Witches"....i walked through the Portal. 

"There", he said.  "Now You are GROUNDED....Part of the ISLAND".

****

All through my Four year Advent that began in Sag/Cap Solar Seasons of 2010

with ALL of you that tune into with these BEWISE folks, of SOULEDOUT.org

i have had to CREATIVELY EXPRESS MYSELF amdist my Auric Field tremblings of BURNING IN FIRE.  To "channel" the audacious Prayers with STARS of ARCHANGELS wasn't exactly in my SEMINARY training.  ~_+  Where i learned to call in an Archangel's Wheel in the 70's, however was in Kathryn Kurtz's Dernyi Series....

The ARCHANGEL WHEEL has had Dragon Significance....the Trixter manifests Christ in the Pacific NorthWest Beautifully...... the ST. George' s Anglican Church, that supported the St. Michael's Residential School is in ALERT BAY....amdist the Church's Celebrations in ART of Colonial Evangelical "success" .......is the Main Stained Glass Window in the front of the Sanctuary.

It's the ARCHANGELS....the Archangels of the PAGAN Medicine Wheel Winds and 4 Directions...

and with the date of the Dedication it's pretty certain, that the RAINBOW STAINED GLASS artist had never Heard of the ARCHANGEL's Medicine Wheel.

In Fact, when leaving the paid accountable ministry of the United Church one leaves "permission and authority" to exercise "SACRAMENTS" outside of the Church.

re~membering the Scorpio Solar Festival Season of 2010

SHE WHO WALKS WITH EAGLE was visiting me for a kind of CRONE INTITIATION just after her FULL MOON ALL SOUL's  BIRTHDAY.

At a  Breaking of The Bread ceremony

at my Kitchen Table

in the Scorpio Solar Festival Season 2010,

SHE WHO WALK's WITH EAGLE SAID

THE PRIESTESS DRINKS FIRST.

This was probably the Biggest gift i received in my HEALING.

DOING RITUAL FOR MYSELF IS ALLOWED.  ~_~

you see,

Priests are Priests forever under the Order of Melchizedek in the Sacred Prayer books of the Orthodox and Roman Traditions....most Protestant Ministers do not share this Understanding. 

In fact, there are written policies that says to the effect, NO MINISTER, leaving the United Church of Canada, shall perform any acts of Spiritual Celebration without RECEIVING PERMISSION FIRST.  TO HONOUR THE AUTHORITY OF THE ONE THE CHURCH HAS CALLED to the position.    Most retired and displaced clergy, continue to be MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH...and thus there is SWORN obedience to the Church Courts, called "Presbytrey" , Conference and GENERAL COUNCIL.  AN EXTERNAL AUTHORITY GOVERN's THEIR ACTIONS.

What is bound on Earth is bound in HEAVEN.

It's like i hear the Dali Lama whispering in my ear.....

You have to KNOW the RULES to BREAK THEM.

CEREMONIES, SACRAMENTS are what BLESS OUR SPIRITUAL ANATOMY....and

i'm ON TRACK  with Tuiji ....

and I'm understanding more about the repetition in the Greek Scriptures that say....

AND HE SPOKE WITH AUTHORITY and not as the scribes.
