Fear No Doom!
"People often confuse crisis with doom
and turn the other way,
fearing that too close a look
might somehow challenge
their faith in the light.
Crisis is an exercise in presence,
not a prognosis for death.
The Sufis always said:
"Trust in God and Tie Your Camel!"
It is not one thing or the other.
It is both.
Our survival instincts are divine
and exist for a reason.
They are not intended
to dominate or subjugate
our cosmic persuasions;
rather they are intended
to keep us in the game
long enough to be of service to others
during this amazing time in history
when the Earth is reforming Herself."
Message From Mayan Elder:
The Andean Shamans say,
"Follow your own footsteps.
Learn from the rivers,
the trees and the rocks.
Honor the Christ,
Your Brothers and Sisters.
Honor the Earth Mother and the Great Spirit.
Honor yourself and all of creation."
"Look with the eyes of your soul
and engage the essential."
Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. Pachamama is usually translated as "Mother Earth" but a more literal translation would be "Mother world" (in Aymara and Quechua mama = mother / pacha = world or land; and later spread fairly modern as the cosmos or the universe). Pachamama and Inti are the most benevolent deities and are worshiped in parts of the Andean mountain ranges, also known as Tawantinsuyu (stretching from present day Ecuador to Chile and Argentina).
In Inca mythology, Mama Pacha or Pachamama is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting. She causes earthquakes. Her husband was either Pacha Camac or Inti, depending on the source. After conquest by Catholic Spain her image was masked by the Virgin Mary, behind whom she is invoked and worshiped in the Aboriginal ritual, in some parts of Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Peru.
Since Pachamama is a "good mother", people usually toast to her honor before every meeting or festivity, in some regions by spilling a small amount of chicha on the floor, before drinking the rest. This toast is called "challa" and it's made almost everyday. Pachamama has a special worship day called "Martes de challa" (Challa's Tuesday) where people bury food, throw candies, burn incense. In some cases, celebrants assist traditional priests, known as "yatiris" in Aymara, in performing ancient rites to bring good luck or the good will of the goddess.
Prayer for the Fullness of Life
"I am the heir of eternal expansion and clothed in my right to partake of it. I am expanding to participate in the gorgeous fullness of it.
There is no possible expression for the fullness and rhythm. Oh do not let me ever again be poor-spirited or faded or gnarled in form.
I want the richly patterned life. I want to be gorgeous-spirited. I want the ceremonial beauty and fragrance of the spirit. I want the freedom of its force. I want the quiet whispering of its wisdom. I want the simplicity of its love. Oh give me, help me to the fullness of life. Oh keep me from starving myself. Give me liberty to be a quickener of others. Do not let me sink in inertia. I pray now for the fullness of life with an undivided heart, so that I may rest absorbed in strength, not emptying myself of life!"
---Invisible, 1947 "With Folded Wings"
"Is God a Man or a Woman ? The answer to this question is neither---- God is That. But if you must give God a gender, God is more female than male, for he is contained in She."
(Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)

With Love, With love, With only my Love!
This is a chant we sing to open the door way to heaven and earth, as we are the bridge between Heaven and Earth.
We honor the Sun, the Moon, The Wind and The Earth.
We talk to the trees, the rocks and the flowers.
Mother Earth gives us what we need to live a good and healthy life for we are her children.
In return, we sing our songs of Aloha and say many prayers of healing for all our relations.
This is Living Aloha!

"The ultimate aim, in the highest utilization of any material environment such as your Earth, is the fullest expression of spirit in the completest manifestation of matter."
---Invisible, "With Folded Wings"
"You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is THE HOUR.
And there are things to be considered...
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, "This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Prayer For Departed Pets
Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures.
You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this pet.
By the power of your love, enable it to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.
