    I am so much more than the picture in my passport
    Or my qualifications and titles.
    I am not the stories people tell about me.
    I am not in the judgments of pointed fingers or facts of any kind.
    I refuse to be put into boxes
    And I can neither be numbered nor labelled.
    I know and yet, I cannot be known by
    Any knowledge of anyone’s mind.

    But who am I and who are you?
    We are spirit and soul and on the inner level of life
    We are one and you are part of me as much as I am part of you.
    If you wish to experience and meet the one we both truly are,
    You have to feel into your own heart.
    It alone can recognise the true me
    Because it knows how to love one of its own kind.

    I am an experience – a feeling, a wave and a vibration.
    I can be a tear or a smile,
    A flower, a tree or a butterfly,
    And at the same time the sea and the open sky,
    Or the wind that caresses your hair.
    I am what I love within me, but also that of which I am afraid.
    I am me and yet I can be anything and anyone I want to be.

    Do not tell me who I should be.
    Do not mention my limits, my scale, my size
    Or who – in your eyes – I could or should be.
    All I ask of you is that you
    Love me the way I am, as the experience that I am and
    Give me the freedom and the space to be myself.
    Whenever you wish to know me,
    Approach me with a hug and a smile,
    So I can recognise you.
    Share a caring word with me
    And let me lead you to the place
    And the experience where all is one,
    For that alone is the true ‘me’ and also the true ‘you’.

    :hug: ​


    There once was a very lively and intelligent little girl who was showing an astonishingly early interest in geography. Could she have been a geographer in a previous lifetime. Who knows? One fine day, to keep her busy for an hour or two, her mother made her a jigsaw puzzle from a map of the world. To the mother’s surprise, after a quarter of an hour the daughter presented her with the assembled map. She could hardly believe her eyes, so she asked the little girl: ‘How could you put the puzzle together so quickly? I don’t think I could have done that!’

    Back came the reply: ‘Well, Mummy, when you were cutting the map of the world into pieces I noticed that it had a picture of a little girl, just like me, on the other side. It was simple! When I put the girl together, the whole world came together.

    When someone succeeds in putting the pieces of the puzzle of our own life together, so that the whole thing suddenly makes sense and the complete picture of all life begins to reveals itself to us, our world slowly but surely becomes an ever more beautiful and wholesome place. As our perception and understanding of God’s nature and our own steadily increases, it comes ever clearer to us that the many nasty things that are still taking place on this place of life are necessary and vital individual and collective lessons for our whole race. This realisation brings us the inner knowingness that our world is a good place, after all and that we and it have always rested safely in the loving hands of the Highest. It is then no loner difficult to understand that it was indeed based upon the creative ideas of God’s Divine power and love. How wonderful that all the falsifications and misinterpretations God’s wisdom and truth had to endure in past ages could never change one iota of it!

    With love and light,


    Dear Friend - never stop your dreaming and try to stop calling yourself a hopeless dreamer. Our thoughts and dreams create our reality. So, please keep on dreaming of better times to come for you and our whole world and you will do your share of helping them to come about.

    Oh, how much talking and dreaming
    There is of better days to come.
    Just watch them all running and chasing
    After a vision of happier days, a golden age of plenty
    And a world without suffering and pain,
    Where hunger and thirst, sickness and wars,
    Violence and crime are words unknown.
    Our world grows old and constantly renews itself,
    But throughout the ages humankind clings
    Steadfastly onto its dream.

    Hope guides us into life on the Earth.
    Happily surrounding us in youthful days,
    It bewitches us with its magical shine.
    And no matter how old and weary we get,
    Because hope is firmly in our hearts,
    It never leaves us and dies.
    Alas, each earthly sojourn must end in the grave.
    Yet, hope stays with us and accompanies us into the beyond.

    For it is much more than a flattering delusion
    And an elixir that flows only from the brains of fools.
    If we but listen, we can hear the small still voice of the living God,
    Who dwells in everybody’s heart and whispers:
    ‘For something greater than Earth life your race was born –
    A high and holy destiny is waiting to be fulfilled by each one of you!’
    The things that are thus revealed to humankind
    Never misleads or betrays the trust we place in it.

    From ‘Words & Prayers of Comfort & Healing’

    With love and light,


    You are all in this earthly life to simultaneously act as teachers and pupils to each other. Do not forget that actions speak louder than words and that the best way of teaching anyone is by living as a good example. This you do when you can be seen as a keeper and guardian of the Earth who recycles and who does not over-consume.

    Whatever you decide to do, don't ever give up! Know that you have a right to be here; that you are entitled to find happiness and healing; and that – if you but stay – you have a good chance of finding all of these things. Try to look at what you are going through at present as an opportunity that will, if you seize it and work with it, in due course lead you into becoming a healer in your own right.

    Your present experiences are meant to help you become a kinder, more loving and compassionate person, towards others and also yourself. Going in search of one’s own light at the end of one’s personal tunnel of suffering, in your case the one of depression, gradually develops the ability to show others that their lives and their experiences are valid and worth living through, the same as yours have been and always will be. However, this inner knowing must grow organically from within you, through your very own experiences. Only when this growth has taken place, will you be able to convincingly teach others how to do for themselves what you did in the past.

    So long as this you fail to see:
    That death precedes re-birth!
    A gloomy guest you’ll always be,
    Upon this darkling Earth.

    The Courage To Live

    To those who have tried and seemingly failed,
    Reach out, Great White Spirit,
    Father/Mother of the whole of Creation,
    And bring them your comfort and love today;
    Those whose hopes have been dimmed,
    And whose faith has paled,
    Lift into the radiance of the light of your Divine wisdom, I pray,
    And help them to trust again.

    To all who are frightened, reach out a hand.
    To all who feel hurt and helpless, bring them a friend.
    Baffled and blind, they fail to understand the true purpose of life,
    Falsely believing that their dark and tangled earthly road is the end.

    Touch with the flame of Your Heavenly fire all hope that has burned low
    And rekindle the faith that has gone dead.
    Help us, each one, to steadfastly walk,
    Following Your guidance from deep within ourselves,
    Waiting to light the way ahead for all human souls.

    Those who are stumbling and falling by the wayside,
    Help them to get up and move amongst their fellow men,
    With love in their hearts and with faith and courage to try –
    Whenever it’s necessary, all over again.

    With love and light,


    And a time for every purpose under the Sun:
    A time to be born and a time to die;
    A time to plant and a time
    To pluck up that which has been planted;

    A time to kill and a time to heal;
    A time to tear down and a time to build up;
    A time to weep and a time to laugh;
    A time to mourn and a time to dance;
    A time to cast away stones and
    A time to gather stones together;

    A time to embrace and
    A time to refrain from embracing;
    A time to lose and a time to seek;
    A time to tie up and a time to untie;

    A time to rend and a time to sew;
    A time to keep silent and a time to speak;
    A time to love and a time to hate;
    A time for war and a time for peace –

    He has made everything beautiful, in its time.
    Ecclesiastes 3:1-11[/CENTER]

    I am not a Bible thumper but I do appreciate the great wisdom in this. It reassures us that it's indeed in the Universe's plan that better times will surely come. So, just keep on keeping on.

    Big healing hugs - Aquarius


    In Times Of Great Struggle
    When the world pushes us to our knees,
    We are in the best position for praying.
    Happiness does not consist of living in a world
    Where everything is already perfect and beautiful.
    True happiness grows from the ability to look
    Beyond the imperfections of our world
    And the ends of our noses towards the higher purpose of life.

    Only then can the perfected and beautiful self
    Be perceived that truly dwells inside everybody,
    Merely waiting to be brought forth by
    The lowest and the meanest, as much as you and me.
    Finding and developing is every soul’s
    Highest potential and birthright.
    Edited by Aquarius


    Universe for you:

    When the Sun refuses to shine on your day,
    And you’re finding it hard to cope,
    When you’re seeing more rain clouds
    Than Stars in the Sky,
    And you feel like giving up hope,

    That’s the time when someone comes along
    With a smile and a warm hug that says:
    ‘It’s okay – tomorrow will be a better day,
    So, don’t give up now, for brighter moments
    For you are surely on their way!’

    Emily Matthews
    Edited by Aquarius

    Let me be the one to assure you that new and brighter days are most certainly on the horizon for you.
    Try never to forget that the darkest hours always comes before the dawn.

    Much love and an extra big healing hug,
