With or Without You ...
I Am Everything ...
I Am Nothing ...
When you make the two one, and when you make the inner as the outer and the outer as the inner and the above as the below, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male will not be male and the female not be female . . . then shall you enter the kingdom.

I have these memories … they dance in my head
All the places … all the faces I’ve met

I have these memories …comin’ right back on me
Some are haunting me … some are taunting me

Leaving me wanting … some more

Wanna walk with the Angels … on a mountain so high
Green valleys below me … under an azure blue sky
Wanna talk with the angels … in my heart I do trust
There’s nothing to worry … Angels are walking with us

I have this dream … you’re walking beside me
All’s forgiven …we’re for living this life

I have this dream … we’re standing together
Sun on our faces… love in our hearts so true

Wanna walk with the Angels … on a mountain so high
Green valleys below me … under an azure blue sky
Wanna talk with the angels … in my heart I do trust
There’s nothing to worry … Angels are walking with u
"Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength."
-- August Wilson
"Man is his own star; and the soul that can/ Render an honest and a perfect man/ Commands all light, all influence, all fate./Nothing to him falls early, or too late./Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,/ Our fatal shadows that walk by us still." -- John Fletcher
"When the angels present themselves, the devils abscond." -- unknown
... it will be necessary to cut away
the knotted jungle of our own self-centered existence.
This task is not for the faint at heart.
However, it is the only way for us to truly love God
and to love one another.
There is no other path to salvation.
Cutting away this jungle of deluded narcissistic
self-absorption is what Jesus had in mind when he said:

34“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth.
I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
35For I have come to turn “ ‘a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
a daughterinlaw against her mother-in-law
36a man's enemies will be
the members of his own household.
37“Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me
is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter
more than me is not worthy of me;
38and anyone who does not take his cross
and follow me is not worthy of me.
39Whoever finds his life will lose it,
and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
Matthew 10:34-39 , NIV

The “sword,”in this case, exists solely for the liberation
of the soul that it may soar into the boundless sky of love.
It is a sword of uncompromising compassion.

The miracle of it all is that within the insanity of this earthly paradigm, I have discovered the truth of unconditional LOVE. Through the looking glass (mirror) I have travelled to reveal my beauty that shines beyond the darkness that I can never run away from.Only by having acknowledged my darkness, has it run from me. Through facing my demons, I have recognized the light that shines within myself, and within all that have come into my life. Even though others may not see the light right away , I know that I am a catalyst in the BIG PICTURE.
Others may have fought, and/or run from me as I have absorbed and reflected upon their darkness , or rather, shone my light upon it without judgement. Their assuming that I have judged, reveals their judgement. To cause a little short term discomfort is worth the ultimate long term gain. That is the purpose of my journey, as well as theirs. Their reaction to my actions reveals so much to me, my angels, and hopefully to them. Once I have seen the changes toward growth, or the total lack thereof, I remove myself for them to choose to walk alongside our angels. I have seen that in order to do the greatest good, I must accept my curse/blessing of earthly solitude, and pain through my well intentioned, and guided empathies.In order to walk with the angels, and be a soldier for True LOVE we all must continue to remember that our stage is the entire WORLD .
There is no room for rugged American individuality in LOVE's company.
We are intimately connected to one another.
Success in LOVE depends on strengthening that interconnectedness.
There is no room for jealousy of any sort.
Not only does no one here get out alive.
None of us gets out ALONE !
