Healing Rainbow Taize, Chanting Magdalene's Seven Signs 

Taize, this Sunday, Nov. 6th 5 pm, with readings from the Gospel of John

Sign One Making the Two One

A holy communion in the bridal chamber where the divine masculine-- light, and the divine feminine-- water, become one and make a new creation  a rainbow, a Biblical symbol of God's promise to  love all of creation, always.

We will be using readings from the Gospel of John fro our Taize chanting worship this Sunday. The Monday night book group is studying  Jack Angelo's book, The Healing Wisdom of Mary Magdalene. Jack invites us to consider that this gospel was written by Mary Magdalene and that  Jesus and Mary Magdalene came to teach in partnership. May we follow in their footsteps.

Jesus turns water into wine. Gospel of John 2:1-11

"On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee....Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled the
m up to the brim....the water that had become wine....Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana or Galilee, and revealed his glory: and his disciples believed him."

Sign Two Distant Healing and Dreams  

"At any age illness or other trauma may be the catalyst for making life changes to start really living....to consider what is important in our lives, to follow our dreams, to heal old wounds and perhaps to say goodbye. Illness or trauma empowers the soul to be heard and show us the way to a more fulfilling life.....Our health is linked to the good health of the Earth and the earth family. This true healing cannot happen for human beings while other beings of the earth are being exploited, ravaged, desecrated, or made extinct by human behavior"(p.131) 

Jesus heals the official's son from a distance. Gospel of John 4:43-54

"The official said to him, "Sir, come down before my little boy dies," Jesus said to him "Go; your son will live....he asked his slaves what hour when he recovered....and it was the same hour when Jesus had said to him, "Your son will live."

Sign Three Paralysis , Inertia and Stagnation.  38-40 years in the desert. 

"Yeshua is telling us that our power comes from the sacred within us....First you visit the pool to wash and refresh yourself. Then you encounter the desert of inner paralysis. You have been waiting for a sign, for a leader, for someone to tell you what to do next. Yet, you are your own sign, your own leader. Arise! Get up and get moving or your ind will not function as it should."(p. 138) 

The paralyzed man walks. Gospel of John 5:1-19

"Jesus went to Jerusalem ...and there is a pool....In these lay many individuals who had been invalids-blind, lame, and paralyzed. One man who was there had been ill for thirty-eight (or forty) years.....Jesus said to him, "Stand up, take your mat and walk." At once the man was made well..."
Sign Four Abundance God loves you and there is nothing you can do about it! When everyone shares there is enough for all! There is enough love and food for everyone and all the creatures, plants and minerals and there is an inner messiah within everyone. "Taking up the path of the heart does not mean taking up asceticism The path of the heart takes us deep into life--our own life, the life of others, the life of the Earth and the Earth family. For the heart, where the souls dwells, encourages a total giving out of resources and above all of total giving out of love, without attaching any conditions.." (p.150)
Loaves and Fishes. Gospel of John 6:1-15
"A large crowd kept following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing for the sick. There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fishes.....Jesus said," Make the people sit down." ...so they sat down....about five thousand in all. Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed then to those who were seated: so also the fish, as much as they wanted." 

(we will learn more about Signs 5, 6 and 7 later in November in Monday night Book Group)

Interfaith, Interspecies and Interconnected!

"In the dream I found myself in sort of a wilderness setting, and all these elephants start coming towards me, they were  African and Indian elephants both, so this makes it is not a specific geographical location partially (I think that was what they were  telling me ) and in the dream was the Virgin Mary,  and I could see she also Mother Mary and she had a special rapport with the elephants and sort of telepathically they were asking me to join them in this splendid rapport they were all sharing, and the Virgin Mary was stroking the trunk of the elephant, and then I realized this particular elephant was Ganesh, and it was Ganesh and the  Virgin  Mary and the then the  other animals,  the elephants, and sort of beyond, that it was sort of like everything, all created life, ever expanding outward,  it encompassed everything, it had no limits, it may just encompass, the entire physical multi verse,  it was like radiating from that point, and I have shared that with Bonnie before, that I find that there is some sort of connectedness, there is some  sort of a clue in the encounter with the major world religions, they were saying things on so many, many, many levels, they were communicating with these elephants who were talking to me like  telepathically, and I know and I have read before and since more about elephants and about how they  communicate, they do communicate  over long distances, and they are very empathic and they communicate with other species, like the whales, and so forth and there is this dialogue that is going on that humans are just totally not unaware of, between these species, and some of them are facing extinction, possible extinction, and some are OK with the idea, some are sort of like fighting it, and saying it like the, "Water Protectors" "We are not going to lie down and let this come to pass." and but anyway, if we really want to be involved, we have to throw ourselves into the fray and I seem to be reading different  things, keep coming my way, things about how the different world faiths really need to get together and quit their  infighting and bickering and get over these fine points of theology, and hair splitting and that sort of thing and come together. And the elephants have continued to communicate in that way and I just feel a great love and affinity toward them and other species as well, and I have noticed since that where ever I go, cats come up to me and birds (laughter) and everything and "What is going on there?" and any ways it is just like Bonnie was pointing out earlier about that oneness, that unity and I think that is where the salvation comes in, with that unity between the species, between the  world faiths, between individuals.
In the last couple of weeks too I have been having a lot of dreams of Native Americans in and they are telling me that we need to reclaim that spirituality and they are willing to share it, but on a deep level,  not superficially and  so often it  has been misappropriated and we really need to  not just have the trappings but to get to the soul, by going about at it superficially, we will have missed the point, it is worse than not  going in that direction at all, if you are going to do it superficially, because it will really get us off track.
The elephants came down, as you probably know, like at dusk the animals  usually go to drink, especially in Africa and other places and that is the time when all the other species have  a time out where they all get along, and they come  for water and it is  the divine feminine that is bringing tying it all together and  tying it all I  together, and also we are kind of at that point too  so this is a possible dusk  we are at the end of this age and it is like  age for the Aquarius and so for the Aquarian age to come in  it needs to be completed just like when you get a passing grace in school you have to get a passing grace.  We are right now cramming for finals and in that sense we need to pass on to the  next level. Things come my way that confirm what I dreams sometimes.  At any rate This has been documented  now that that elephants were coming extremely close to the shore down to the edge of the ocean in places which was very unusual behavior and at the same time the whales were coming very close to the shore and it seems very unusual behavior  and then with very sophisticated sensitive instruments they could see that there was communication going on sounds and everything. Those that are gifted with being able to communicate with animals and  what I picked up in my dreams,  that the elephants were trying to convince the whales to hang in and the whales were like,   "Ok it is really over with. It is a lost battle. We are going extinct and we might as well just accept it and just say Adios, but the elephants they are going, "No, no, it is not over. You have to hang in there and fight. We are going to conquer this, we are going to reach the people we can.  "
I kept saying, "What am I supposed to do? No one is going to listen to me." "Yes they will. Just do what you are doing. Don't try to do anything spectacular or anything." I thought that I had  to go in front of the   United Nations and give a speech  because of these dreams I have been having and I thought they would throw me into in a psycho ward somewhere  and  they said, "No, no it is the energy. It is at the energetic level.  These other things various things will spin off from that but you have  it take place on the energetic level first, so I said "What am I supposed to do?" They said, "You are doing it already!" (lots of laughter!) "I said OK!"

Thank you for the generosity of the dreamer for sharing this important dream publicly. We have a different kind of confidentiality in our dream circles for we experience that the dreams come for the healing of all of us particularity now in our ecologic crisis. There are many different kinds of dreams and some dreams are  BIG dreams like this one.  This dream shares about the,
 "...unity between the species, between the world religious faiths and between individuals..." Thank you dreamer for being an instrument of God's message of unity, hope and our oneness with all creation!

Please join us in our Church for Our Common Home sacred dream circles and be prepared to be deeply moved at the beauty and wisdom of our dreams.
