To see what is not there To hear what is not spoken To know what has yet to be
The past, present and future What was What is What will be What could be What will never be
The body, mind and heart What is sensed What is though What is felt
Secrets to know Knowledge to share
To heal . . . The spirit
Of beast, man and planet
The fires burn away illusion The waters wash away fears The winds sweeps the self to heights of knowing And the earth protects me from harm
Call the Scribe of Time To inscribe the truth forever
Call the Fire Gatherer To call the people to hear the word
Call the Bridge of Hearts To embolden the union of fire
Call the Gate Keeper To reveal the secrets of vision
Call the Minstrel of Light To intones the lore to their hearts
There are no more visions There are no more dreams
I awaken in union of being and never And all is known
To all There is the word . . .
*Mandalas of the Spirit Paths
I have long studied mankind's quest for gifts of the spirit . . . as some assume it is the healing gifts, pre-cognance, telepathy, etc. . . . and in the end I discovered the greatest gift is within us and are those relationships with our selves, our fellow man, and the universe . . . and if we do not nurture those relationships, then there is no purpose to our lives . . . these six sacred paths shows us how we relate to our fellow man, in the path to help each other come to ONENESS
Each person is given a gift or a combination of gifts that help them in fulfilling their lifeís purpose Whether they will become healers, teachers or such How they maximize these callings are based on the use of these gifts and interacting with the others with different gifts. They are called:
The Oracle The Oracle is gifted with the ability to see beyond the material reality. The oracle can see future possibilities, spiritual and esoteric truths, or even be an empathy who knows what is in manís heart. It is up to the oracle to use this gift of sight beyond, to guide people in their own journeys.
The Fire Gatherer The Fire Gatherer is gifted with the ability to converge people to a cause or course of action. In a sense, a fire gatherer brings the fires of souls to meet and unite.
The Scribe The Scribe is gifted with the ability to analyze record or share knowledges that pass them. These knowledges and wisdoms can come through written or oral means. The scribe can be story tellers, historians, and such.
The Bridge The Bridge is gifted in building or rendering relationships. The bridge is an empathy, who knows how to bind people and build teams.
The Minstrel The Minstrel is gifted with the ability to creatively share an idea to a large number of people. Whether it is through the arts or the simple gift of gab, the minstrel can effectively communicate wisdoms to any medium of choice.
The Gate Keeper The Gate Keeper is gifted with ability to open paths for people. These paths may be opportunities or truths of healing, the gate keeper sees these portals to guide others in their own chosen course.
We are often a combination of these roles and with a dominant one. So you are most likely both
In my studies of various esoteric and practices, I discovered that there are these six key types that keep surfacing, no matter what the gift the person is . . . a person may be a reiki practitioner, but she is actively helping people realize their potentials . . . a gate keeper
Then the more I meditated on these "roles", the surer I felt about them . . . first making a angelic series . . . then with these mandalas
OK what I am asking is where do you study these things? if you could PM me a few books to read, like where to start and then I could find more, I have been getting more and more into this type of thing and need to find true direction in my quest with my gifts. Empower me!
I can't really give you any immediate reading materials, as all my studies have taken all my 43 years of life
Since I was a child, I had already begun my research on the occult and other mystic studies . . . which included the ancient civilizations
After history, I later delved into anthropology . . . specializing in the symbologies and myths of the tribes here in the Philippines
I did so much research . . . including sociology, psychology, and such . . . and I know they have all accumulated to everything I am doing now
But as a piece of advice . . . I see that you are exploring different media and themes, that is good . . . as you experience more, both in reading and real life, you will come to a point when you know what are the symbols that will resonate in your art
Yours is a quest . . . a journey of discovery, and as I too am in my own journey, I can share more bits of my experiences as you continue to ask questions
