The Wilderness

wilderness

Now John himself had a garment of camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey. – Matthew 3:4

The young ones flee to the wilderness. They have heard through whispers that is where Greatness resides.

They go to the wilderness, ushering through the clumps of fearsome rocks and sandy soil, to rest with the old ones; the abbas and ammas, the ones that wholly listen with the ears of their hearts.

They pursue a life less lived. A life brimming with raw honey, locusts, pungent wine, prayer and unity. A life they dare not dream but a life all the same prominent in love ever after.

Love not in the sense of promiscuity but of innocence—that of the beginning—in which the golden rays of the guiding stars in Heaven shone.

In this wilderness they find a knowledge uncanny akin to their childhood faith, one that swallows them whole with wonderment.

They vow to the aflame that is growing from the Breath ever so gently exhaled on the spark from within.

It is then that they are let loose.

They have grown from the young and unmindful to a wise and timeless tribe.

They witness the Holy, in all the living world—even the flesh—and that which is illimitable.

It is through the wilderness that they are able to make their way back to the widely known.

To the place often traveled.

Not to subdue or go back to ways of the common but to spread the passion of goodness.

Lead by righteousness.

It is in this worldly place they are able to free themselves from the binds that constrain them. The binds that had permanently mark their tender skin—transforming them into the wake of tomorrow.

They know from their rest that they will be able to flourish and witness the Holy in the darkest of shadows; within the greatest cities, across the vastness of plains and in the depths of the sea.

It is there that their light will shine brighter than ever before, dripping with a thick and rich solace.

This same solace will spread with glory; pulsating all the different colors of glimmering warmth that has been cast and revealed through a crystal so clear.

And in that glimmering warmth a remarkable Presence is acknowledged.

In that moment the Truth will be known; no hesitation, no questioning.

Purely cell-splitting willingness and awareness.

In the darkness.

In the night.

In the wilderness.

Amongst all that ever was.

That is where Greatness will transcend all; ever breathing, light-giving in the stillness like wintertide.

 

With Love,

Life Before Death

Wind-formed_trees_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1421578

“The great spiritual question is not, ‘Is there life after death?’ but is, ‘Is there life before death?'” – Anonymous

To live is to not only acknowledge but to take peaceful action.
Live a life with attention to God and for the good of others.
In other words,
you push me and I will pull you.
We counter each other.
Nature is the perfect example of what I write.
The wind blows and the trees sway,
for if the trees push while the wind also pushes then they show resistance to force.
Thus, they face the natural consequence of breaking a limb.
Some would say that the trees would do well to resist;
but to what purpose?
To drive out the consciousness of God through resistance and agitation?
Who’s agenda is being worked with that ignorance?
Oh, don’t you see?
The wind and the trees work in perfect harmony with the community of the world;
praying through their movement;
dancing with one another;
bringing creation to life.
All the while, the wind helping the trees take a new shape with their outter appearance;
while strengthening their untouched godly core.
They are not enemies but partners in life and thereafter.
As you may know, the inner and outer appearance are truly, truly the same.
We only name them to express wonder and existence.

Peace,
Brooke

Outer and Inner Community

inner wisdom

“This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.” – Hebrews 6:19

Hello my beautiful soul healing family,

Over the past couple of days I have been getting signs to share about outside and inside community. Outside being defined as this group, our faith communities, families and friends. Inside community being our thoughts and our inner knowings–our true self.

Let us give hope that in our communities we learn to work with others and give service; find ways to give and receive love from one another. We give action to our words. We give action to our thoughts. Our thoughts have power. They can make our actions debilitating or miraculous. We have the power over our thoughts. Just as we have the power to make change in our communities we also have the power to change our thoughts, especially if they are debilitating. By honoring our positive thoughts by bringing them to the surface and giving them voice, through words or by leading by example, we are attuning ourselves to greatness.

This greatness helps to remove blocks that are associated with not being able to connect with our spiritual side (which I consider a 1/3 of whom we are). If we blocked off from connecting to our spiritual side then how can we expect to be able to heal?

So, first, we must consider how can we take account of our thoughts and actions to heal? By taking a daily inventory of our interactions through the day. I do this at day’s end. I write my experiences in my journal. If I hear words or thoughts throughout that day that did not come from a place of love then I take note of it. I then either let those words of opposition go, speak my condition with love (if they are others’ words or actions), or apologize for my own not so loving words or actions (even the actions or words that were not intended to be not so loving). I do this to raise everyone’s state of being to be in harmony. This helps to remind me that we are all individual souls living in unity.

Clean thoughts and actions make us prime instrument to work in the spirit world, enabling us to reach higher realms where our loved ones rest. And through all of this we will get a better sense of whom we are and what our soul purpose is in this life; whether that be to give service, witness God, be a truth teller, etc. We all have the ability to be mystics, psychics, whatever word suits you; in my experience, elite statures are false in nature and cannot exist in the presence of Love.

And yet all of us have different capacities of gifts that we offer to the world. I believe these capacities vary and can be capped off by the obstacles we setup. So, how do we uncap our gifts. By making a connection with God through prayer, meditation and serving our community. It takes consistancy and energy to manifest everything physical, mental and spiritual that is needed to break down those obstacles that block us from being whom our Maker intended us to be. And be persistent. I have often asked successful people (not just monetary successful people) how they attained the life they live. They always say through persistence.

It is through the love we witness in our outer and inner communities that will bind us to the truth and give us freedom to know the spirit world as we should–our home that is always within reach.

With Love,
Brooke
