Preface: Today (solar eclipse day, 8/21/17) I want to wish a Very Happy Birthday!!! to hom a:kuwaye (my special Zuni friends, twins) Arlene and Darlene. And thank you for your prayers and sage advice about my concerns in the blog that follows. They have let me know that one of the Rain Priests at Zuni, a relative of theirs, has been praying for Longevity. WE should all be very grateful to Zuni religious leaders who have the whole of humanity in their hearts and prayers!
Oh yes, and also Thank YOU to all Followers linked to this blog. Yesterday we reached the magic number of 5000 Followers, which has been a major goal for me from the beginning!
I am contemplating life and “death” tonight. The US may be at the verge of a conflict that may easily get out of balance; our human and animal lives are fragile and could be taken quickly. So our topic this month of the Sacred Marriage is all that more vital to comprehend. The phrase “the urge to merge” came to me in contemplation. Soul merges with Spirit. We are not these bodies but the consciousness of Soul within the Ocean of Love and Mercy we may call Divinity.
As we realize this, that Soul and Spirit and Divinity are a Unity, a Oneness, then we understand that life can never be either given nor can It be taken away. It just Is, as Isness Itself, and that is a loving condition, the ultimate awareness of IAMTHATIAM, or, Alone with the All One.
I remember a Star Trek original series episode where a species’ Sun was going nova so they needed to be transported away. They had evolved to pure energy beings, so Kirk and his officers allowed the passengers to semi-possess their body states in order to be transported. What I recall is how separated and alone they felt, wearing bodies.
I don’t usually speak too directly of spirituality in this blog, but the times as well as the topic lead me to do so now. I will share a vision I experienced a few years ago, as it transcends any specific religious dogma.
A Being visited me in that wonderful interstice zone between sleeping and waking. I could not assign a gender or a race to this beautiful Being. S/he was gentle and loving is all I can say, with a delicate beauty beyond any mere bodily state.
“How are things going out there?” The Visitor asked me.
I paused to reflect, then answered:
“Well, there are lots of people believing in many different religions,” I heard myself respond. “But most people are still afraid of death.”
The Visitor paused as on a breath and issued softly:
“Next time, we won’t do Religion.”

The Urge to Merge with Spirit, with Divine Love that IS who we Are as Soul, is the most natural and graceful inspiration we can allow. Sweet surrender, trust, and faith can lead us Home, which we have never really left anyway.
