We the Ancients welcome you to the Sacred Circle, the ever-expanding wheel
of life that has no beginning or no end.
Illusion vs. Reality
Illusion: Fantasy, False Impression, Fallacy, Mistaken
Reality: Authenticity, Truth, Genuineness, Certainty
crosses do you bear and how they have come to define your reality?
Oftentimes we are unwilling to put down our crosses or illusions because
without them we would have no identity.
quest to find my answers propelled me to ask in meditation the Christ
energy how it was able to keep clear when so much chaos was around and
what was its truth, what was its illusion then? I drifted off to
sleep at that time and was taken on a spectacular journey. I found
myself in beautiful surroundings which began to turn into obstacles, a
green field able to see for miles then turned into a blizzard like
condition with no way out, next I was in the mountains with stunning and
fantastic views, only to have them turn and box me in with no way out,
there were other scenes that carried the same theme and my body began to
feel trapped and fearful. Then I heard a voice that told me:
“Just touch the fear, just reach out with your finger and dissolve
it.” I felt it the voice of Love and I did just as I was asked and
with that the dooming scenes turned back into those of dazzling beauty.
voice continued to share with me: “There was a myth created around
the Christ being that has been carried forward these many years and that
was that the Christ was a victim to those who feared him. The truth
is that before coming into existence the Christ energy came to share its
love, to teach us acceptance of one another, and to forgive those that
caused injustice.” The voice continued to share with me that:
“Somewhere in the telling of the Christ story a mythical story began
that the Christ had died for our sins and we have carried it like a cross
these many years.”
shared with me that in the constant retelling of our own personal history,
many myths began to create an illusion which we saw as our truth. I
am sure many of us hear a story told by someone and in the retelling of it
we add our own twist or how we heard it. By the time the story has
been told 10+ times you would most likely not recognize it as the simple
story told to you at first.
I would ask you to go back into the catacombs of your psyche story and
seek out the illusions built in time, so you might dissolve any pain you
have carried and just possibly close the books on the past. Begin
anew to redefine yourself in who you are right now. We know by
reading history books we often find things we want to challenge, I ask the
same of you as you read your story, challenge the fallacies, find your
realities and you will find the courage to live in the present.
its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived,
but if faced with courage, need
not be lived again.”
day as I begin my Medicine Wheel walk, one of the first things I do is
surrender my ego, my doubts, my fears and the voice asked me to share with
you to “also surrender our illusions”, those pictures that we have
used to embellish our stories. So, I thank you for allowing this
lengthy discourse. I am in the process of sifting thru the pages of
my life story and letting go of those things I have used to protect my
injured little child all of these years. I would ask the same of you
my friends, for how else can we end years of subjugation to those relics
of the past that have allowed us to entomb ourselves. Let us hold
sacred space for each of us to find our truth.
