Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious,

and they must be brought into connection with action.

They must be woven together. — Anais Nin

Kiss the Angel by Norma Desmond

This poem was introduced to my by a dear friend, Ariela

I am in Divine Unity
And Divine Harmony
And call upon the Holy Angels
Of Clarity and Purification
For Divine Unification
Of our individual work and
The collective work of this group.
So it is through the Highest of
Holy
Intention that we gather here
And ask for Divine Blessing.

We Decree that the Highest,
Most Sacred and Most Divine
Protection and Energy
Surround
each one of us
And this group.

And I ask forgiveness of my
Weaknesses,
As I forgive others theirs.

I Decree that Divine Will and Wish
Flow through all my Beingness,
All my bodies,
All my work,
All my relationships
From the Mindfulness of Divine Mind
And
Divine Love
To which I Commit
And thus Serve.

To alleviate the suffering of all
Sentient Beings
Through the All and Everything
With Pledges of Pure Joy to the Divine
The Holy Shamans and Holy Sages,
Calling upon the Assistance of
The
Sacred
Holy Angelic realm
And all Holy Saints
Through all Times and
All
Dimensions
To direct my every thought, word, and action
In choosing
Divine Right Thought, Divine Right Word, Divine Right Action,
Through Divine love, Divine Knowledge, Divine Wisdom,
Divine Compassion, and Divine Order,
So as to cause no pain.

Let All things unnecessary fall away;
Let Holy Abundance support me,
My Mission’s Path,
And be my ever ready tool
To expand my territory and those whose
Lives I touch and whose lives touch mine.
So to bring heaven throughout earth and beyond seen and unseen;
Let Divine Grace and Divine Ease
Be my Mentors;
Let Divine Strength and Divine Discernment
Be my Guardians.

This I Decree as an Individual of Free will
As a member of Humanity
And as a part of this group.
With the deepest, most Abiding
Sacred gratitude, and Attitude
Thanking All Those and All Things
Which have brought me,
Humanity and this group
To this Sacred Point,
Blessing Always with Immeasurable
Joy and Glory, All of Creation!

Peter Clemens presents 10 Traits Of A Successful Human Being at PickTheBrain

There’s a lot of talk about what you should do to become successful, but I would argue that it ’s more about who you are that makes the biggest impact. It’s the decisions we make on a daily basis, the habits we naturally form in our lives that determine the level of success we can achieve. Here are 10 traits that I’ve seen as essential for success.


Hindu saying (from the book, “A Joseph Campbell Companion”),

“by none but a god shall a god be worshipped”

Therefore, you must become the god you wish to worship.

In order to honor love, become love.

Responsibility does not only lie with the leaders    of our countries or with those who have been appointed or elected to do a    particular job. It lies with each of us individually. Peace, for example,    starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us.–HH the Dalai Lama

If we aren’t granting ourselves permission to explore our true nature, then the majority of our relationships are built on false pretenses

Not every message of Spirit is in a ‘rarefied’ form. Nothing is outside of Spirit, and Spirit will bring its message to the surface in whatever place is most conducive to promote the message—sometimes in surprising forms.I encountered this song and was taken by the pop presentation of Joseph Campbell’s “Follow your Bliss.”

…the function of art is exactly that which I have clearly named as the first function of mythology; to transport the mind in experience past the guardians–desire and fear–of the paradisal gate to the tree within of illuminated life.
