I Look to the NORTH...

Pyramid of Khufu,The Great Pyramid

I look to the NORTH
to moons past
to moons present 
the waxing and waning of light
A journey 
An encampment. 
The summer of the year 1988
The experience of One 
with each of the Four Directions 
The preparation 
the moon ceremony
the fire, 
the crystal
the call 
and Warrior Woman proclaimed
The wings of spirit soar 
in revelation and illumination 
The embrace of the NORTH
 the endowment of valor
relentless strength 
wisdom as true power  
those who hold the keys to SELF
they be known 
Hear the NORTH 
Hear I the masters
heed I the messengers. 

Wisdom of All

Oh how the mind conceives the thought
With restlessness your heart is wrought
For there is a just and kingly goal
Distant yet touching your crying soul
Be burdened not by task and deed
Lest you be lost to the greater creed
Inspired by self and the knowing within
Shall you pass the haunt, the doom of the din
Listen dear child to thy self sovereign and wise
Heed not to temptation, deception and lies
For it is the tear of joy that you shall weep
When the Promise you vow, you do keep
And when you reach and court the dream
With God's love stand thou supreme
Deception takes not your abiding soul
You have reached a kingly goal
As many may doubt and may berate
You shall prevail for love is thy fate
Guide the children, know their call
With God's tender love and wisdom of all.

2014 ... 26 years past...

A calling ever present be it heard...

THOTH fills the silence with splendor,
To wisdom divine I willingly surrender. 

The Emerald Tablets

 "That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above,
 and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, 
to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing." 

Entreat I shall 
for the NORTH calls onto me
Seekers shall be answered
Voices of revelation shall be heard
Visions of light shall be seen
SELF shall be known
SELF shall be known.

A spirited community gathered at the Union Arts Center, Sparkill, New York and gave meaning to Spirit Dance. This offering was conceived byAli Cayenne, a most loving visionary and dancer. She invites all to experience the joy of self in movement, in expression, in liberation. I had the honor of participating in the Closing Ceremony of the Four Directions, symbolic of the embrace of Mother Earth, and so here shared.
