Great Spirit, Father/Mother Creator,
Please help me to forgive my partner for any unlovingness
S/he showed towards me, during the times
You have given us together,
Knowingly or unknowingly. Especially ...
[Now pour all your pain into God, who does understand]
Help me to forgive her/him and also myself for
Any hurt and pain we ever caused each other,
For misunderstandings and abuse of any kind,
For not entering into the deep and fully satisfying
Relationship that is only possible between You and me.
Help me to recognise that it is folly to expect such
Perfect love and understanding from a mere human being who,
Like me, is Your child, on her/his own pathway of evolution
And therefore still imperfect.

From Healing Prayer For Parents And Children

With love and light,
Aquarius

Trust the power of being you
And accept the responsibility for constantly striving
To give of the highest and the best you are capable of,
For this way alone can we hope to become true to our real self.
Don’t be distracted by those you pass, as you walk
Up the spiritual mountain and
Who may wish to coax you down their road.
And don’t listen to the shouts of anyone ahead,
Who thinks they know the way.
As pioneers of the Aquarian Age it is essential
That we follow our inner guidance, for no-one may
Be required to walk where we are meant to go
Or live the visions we are here to seek.

Although in this we are alone.
With the blessings of God and the Angels
And the help of those who walk the path of this life with us,
Even if our hands, hearts and souls touch each other but occasionally,
Together we can experience a lifetime of glorious sunrises and sunsets.
The gift of our friendship will never be taken from us,
Wherever our road may take us
Even into the world of light and Eternity.

Love alone can give our friendships the wings to rise above
Our own selfish needs and lift us beyond the mundane
And the toils and troubles of the earthly plane.

Desiderata

Go quietly amid the noise and haste of our world and remember what peace there is in silence. As far as possible and without surrendering your ideals and self-respect, try to be on good terms with all people. Speak your truth quietly and clearly. Those who have developed their inner ears for listening, and their inner eyes for seeing, will understand. Learn to listen to those around you, for when you do you may find that there is no such thing as a dull person and that even the seemingly dull ones can teach you something. But avoid loud and aggressive people at all cost for they are vexations to our spirit.

Be neither vain nor bitter about your gifts. They are as special as anyone else’s, although there will always be someone who is better or worse at certain things, than you are. Waste no time on comparing yourself with others. Instead enjoy your own achievements, plans, hopes and dreams. Above all, remain interested in life, and diligently attend to whatever task is before you. However humble they may sometimes appear to be, they are a valuable contribution to the wholeness of our world and a precious possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Although to this day our world is full of trickery, let that not blind you to the fact that there is just as much virtue. Be honest and fair in all your dealings and remember that what we send out always comes back. Many strive for high ideals, but do not over-look that it often requires a greater heroism to live our daily life, in faith and trust that things will change and get better; that all is well and that for our Highest Self all things are possible and that miracles do happen, if we but ask and trust.

Above all, be yourself. Never feign affection or be cynical in matters of the heart. In spite of all the aridity and disenchantment of our world, love is the Eternal evergreen of the Universe. Never allow it to die in your own heart, for it will always return in some way, even if at times it may not look like it. Only through life’s tests and trials can our capacity for loving deepen and mature. Therefore, take the counsel of the years with kindness, and surrender the things of youth with grace. Nurture yourself and develop strength of spirit in good times, so that it becomes your shield when the going gets rough. Do not distress yourself with imaginings though and bear in mind that fatigue and loneliness can be the cause of many fears.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. Know that you are a beloved child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars; that we all have a right to be here, because everybody has their particular lessons to learn; and that – whether we are aware of it or not – the Universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore, make peace with your soul and our Creator, whatever this means to you. And bear in mind that in our understanding of the Divine each one of us stands alone. We are all responsible for ourselves and our world. Through their own efforts each one of us has to save and redeem themselves and their own soul. As no-one can do this for us, whatever our aspirations in the noisy confusion of daily life may be, the time has come for making an effort at finding our soul’s purpose. By doing our best to fulfil it, we make peace with ourselves and God.

Refuse to pay undue attention to the sham, drudgery and broken dreams that to this day are an essential part of the lessons we and our world have to learn. Know that they too serve a wise and higher purpose and that this is but one of our world’s evolutionary phase that will pass. Instead of falling into depression, remain as positive as you can by focussing on the mystery, the magic and the wonders of our beautiful world. Love and enjoy them and be content with your lot. Never lose your optimism about the good outcome of everything that still has to take place in our world before the great transition from one age to another is complete. Rest safely in the knowledge that we and our world rest safely in God’s loving hands and that everything will turn out well in the end.

Moving On

As every flower fades and youth must give way to old age,
So all wisdom and each virtue may be valid only in its day.
Nothing but our Highest Self stays with us forever.
At life’s calling the human soul must say farewell
And be ready for a new beginning.
Bravely and without sadness we need to
Enter into ever new learning, safe in the knowledge that
In the background of all life dwells the power of the Unseen,
To guide and protect us and help us to live,
Wherever our destiny may take us one day.

We are meant to move happily through space and time,
Without making our home in any one of them,
Because we know that our true home lies elsewhere.
The Spirit of the Divine never aims
To tie and restrict any of us; quite the opposite is true!
Step by step the Universe tries to lift us
Beyond the horizons of our present understanding.
If we are in danger of staying with one particular way of living
For too long, our spirit and soul stagnate and start to yearn for
Fresh learning through new adventures and further explorations.

The awareness that there is no death, that life is eternal,
Without beginning or end, helps us to
Give in more readily to the demands of life
When the time for moving on has come.
The hour of departure from the physical plane of life is eased and
We can enjoy our rebirth onto a different level of life,
Because we know that all it means is learning of a different kind.

The realisation that life’s call to the human soul
Will never end fills our heart and soul with good cheer.
It enables us to say good-bye willingly and happily,
Whenever the need arises, and go forward peacefully
To find rest and healing in the oneness with God.

‘Stufen’ by Hermann Hesse
Freely translated by Aquarius

From ‘Comfort for the Bereaved’

White Eagle in ‘A Time to Remember’ in Stella Polaris Oct/Nov 2008: ‘Do not fear the future. Do not fear the unknown, not even death itself, for with every step you take forward you are entering into a fuller existence. Even when you lose your present body, it is only to enable you to step forward into a world of light. As you do. you carry whatever light in the form of the spiritual wisdom and understanding you are currently presently gaining from your experiences on the Earth plane. This knowledge will reveal to you the wonders and the beauties of the spirit life that are waiting for you. They will then emanate from your own soul.’

Going Home

Going home, going home – we’re all going home.
Quiet like, some still day – we’re all going home.

It’s not far, just close by, through an open door.
Work all done, care laid by – fear and hurt no more.

Mother’s there, expecting us – Father’s waiting too.
Angel folks are gathered with guides and friends we know –
Guides and friends we know.

Morning Star lights the way – Earth-bound dreams all done.
Shadows gone – break of day – real life’s just begun.
There’s no break, there’s no end – just a moving on.
Wide awake, with a smile – going on and on.

Going home, going home – we’re all going home.
It’s not far, just close by – through an open door.
Going home, going home, I’m just going home.

Though I have gone before you,
I did not do so alone and neither will you,
When your time for saying goodbye to the Earth plane has come.
God and the Angels are forever with us,
Keeping you and me safe.
No matter where we may ever find ourselves,
We shall always rest securely in God’s loving hands.

‘Death is not real, even in the relative sense. It is but a birth to a new life and you shall go on, and on, and on, to higher and still higher planes of life, for aeons upon aeons of time. The Universe is your home and you shall explore its farthest recesses before the end of time on the Earth plane has come. You are dwelling in the infinite mind of The All, and your possibilities and opportunities are unlimited, both in time and space. And at the end of the grand cycle of aeons, when The All shall draw back into itself all of its creations, you will go gladly for you will then be able to know the whole truth of being at one with The All. Such is the report of the illumined, those who have advanced well along the path.’ From ‘The Kybalion : Hermetic Philosophy’.

‘The Kybalion’ is a book published in 1908 claiming to be the essence of the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus. It was published anonymously by a group or person under the pseudonym of ‘The Three Initiates’

Even the least evolved souls upon their return into the world of spirit cannot help noticing that in truth they are spirit and soul, eternal and immortal beings of light. At the end of each lifetime, every one of us without exception returns to our true home, the world of spirit, where we rest and recuperate from the trials and tribulations of Earth life. Having once again been released onto that level of life, the freedom we enjoy there may well feel like heavenly bliss, but Heaven itself – the final oneness with God – it is not. As mentioned in the previous chapter, nobody suddenly turns into an Angel at the time of leaving life in physicality. No-one goes straight to Heaven. Whatever degree of consciousness we have reached on the earthly side of the veil in any given lifetime, that alone we take with us into the world of light.

Apart from leaving our physical body nothing changes at the moment of death. The one we have been on the Earth plane is the same one we shall encounter and have to grapple with in our other world. What we can hope to find on the other side depends on the quality of life we are leading here – more of the same awaits us beyond. Any wisdom we accumulate during each one of our earthly sojourns will always be ours to keep forever. We bring it with us into all subsequent lifetimes, so it can support us and make life easier to cope with, which sets us free for lessons of a different kind. Can you see the great importance and urgency of getting to work on improving our character whilst we are here?
