Can Darkness Become Our Light?

By Carla B.

“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.“Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—  Only this and nothing more.  Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. Eagerly I wished the morrow;—vainly I had sought to borrow — From my books surcease of sorrow—sorrow for the lost Lenore—For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Nameless here for evermore. And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain — Thrilled me—filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before; So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating –  Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door— Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door;—  This it is and nothing more. Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer, Sir,  said I, or Madam, truly your forgiveness I implore; But the fact is I was napping, and so gently you came rapping, And so faintly you came tapping, tapping at my chamber door, That I scarce was sure I heard you—here I opened wide the door;—    Darkness there and nothing more. Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing — Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before; But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token, And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, Lenore? This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, Lenore! — Merely this and nothing more. Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning, Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before. Surely, said I, surely that is something at my window lattice; Let me see, then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore — Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; Tis the wind and nothing more! Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore; not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he; But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door –Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door — Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling, By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore, Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou, I said, art sure no craven — Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore — Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore! Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.” Much I marveled this ungainly fowl to hear discourse so plainly, Though its answer little meaning—little relevancy bore; For we cannot help agreeing that no living human being ever yet was blessed with seeing bird above his chamber door— Bird or beast upon the sculptured bust above his chamber door, With such name as “Nevermore.” But the Raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only that one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.  Nothing farther then he uttered—not a feather then he fluttered –  Till I scarcely more than muttered “Other friends have flown before — On the morrow he will leave me, as my Hopes have flown before. Then the bird said “Nevermore.” Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,“Doubtless,” said I, “what it utters is its only stock and store — Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore –Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore  Of ‘Never—nevermore’.”  But the Raven still beguiling all my fancy into smiling, Straight I wheeled a cushioned seat in front of bird, and bust and door; Then, upon the velvet sinking, I betook myself to linking — Fancy unto fancy, thinking what this ominous bird of yore— What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt, and ominous bird of yore  meant in croaking “Nevermore.” This I sat engaged in guessing, but no syllable expressing — To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom’s core; This and more I sat divining, with my head at ease reclining  on the cushion’s velvet lining that the lamp-light gloated o’er, But whose velvet-violet lining with the lamp-light gloating o’er,  She shall press, ah, nevermore!  Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor. “Wretch,” I cried, “thy God hath lent thee—by these angels he hath sent thee  — respite—respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore; Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!” Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”  “Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil! –Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore, Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted –  On this home by Horror haunted—tell me truly, I implore— Is there—is there balm in Gilead?—tell me—tell me, I implore!” Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”     “Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil! By that Heaven that bends above us—by that God we both adore—  Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore.” Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”  Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!” I shrieked, upstarting—“Get thee back into the tempest and the Night’s Plutonian shore!  Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken! Leave my loneliness unbroken!—quit the bust above my door!
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!” Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.” — And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting on the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; and his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming, and the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor — Shall be lifted—nevermore!

The darkness of night expresses what for each of us holds as a potential for change. A transformation of sorts. And WE are Not alone in our dark night…for all others too…must journey through this phase of life. As we age and sage, we must also recognize that there will always be a time where significant change can happen, for without which we may remain as children …who have not yet made the journey into wholeness. This later stage marks the point where many of us accept the literal interpretation, to when we put on the mind of Christ — ready to tackle the challenges of an unjust world.

John of the Cross theology takes us to the origin of Christianity, for example in Acts 17:27, Paul says; So they would search for God..though indeed he is not far from each one of us.

In this passage we see that John had the awareness that God transcended and was creator of all matter and is a compassionate presence in a world that suffers. In this great work of the dark night he makes use of metaphor, and the allegorical content of his poem is focused on the journey with the search to seek and find, inner TRUTH.

A most beautiful passage from The Songs of Songs (page 484) tells us:

Upon my bed at night I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but found him not; I called him, but he gave no answer. I will rise now and go about the city, in the streets and in the squares; I will seek him who my soul loves.” (Holy Bible NRSV-2008. Oxford Press, USA).

Now John says; One dark night, fired with loves urgent longing I slipped out unseen -my house being all still.

In this dark night the internal fire is lit and although the house is described as being still — the soul remains restless. It is where in our aged years we find our senses start to deteriorate, but we still have the capacity to be enabled to transform, and God waits… and comforts us with his presence. The gift of consolation through love. This is where we drop away from all pretense, all striving…even though we still might be searching for life’s true meaning. Bottom line, the dark night is a stage of transcendence — a point of no return and the watchers on the streets do little but hamper us in our efforts, day and night! We learn a lot as when we awaken and  reshape our life. It is one where we also experience a greater sense of being free, of that unburdening of our self. We might have regret , we may have to admit failures, we may suffer, experience illness and so on. We may well question the meaning of our life, what it has once been …and now become. And when we transit through and transcend — our wisdom increases and we share that wisdom with others to lead them through the fog of their darkness. — #Namaste #Love #Humanity #Wins

President Putin warns Americans of Mega Earthquake

By Regis Yates

Follow us: @EOTMOnline on Twitter|EOTM.Media on Facebook

If you are living on the Coast or a Ring of Fire, we urge you all to have a readiness  earthquake plan, because you never know what could happen, and its smart to prepare for nothing to happen, than not to be prepared at all.

President Putin has deployed Russian troops in the Eastern Military District to prepare for what could be a series of devastating earthquakes and tsunamis to hit the Kamchatka peninsula over the next two weeks. He has also issued a warning that a much bigger ‘megaquake’ could strike the United States northwestern Pacific Ocean region in the coming weeks too.

The deployment was prompted by an “urgent warning” sent to the Security Council over the weekend by scientist Mehran Keshe, who warned that the 5.8 earthquake that struck the Kingdom of Tonga signalled that the Pacific Plate is preparing for a “catastrophic new alignment”.

Whatdoesitmean.com reports:

Doctor-Scientist Keshe is the inventor of “magrav technology” (Western code name code name “Khibiny”) used by Federation military forces in their secretive defense weapons used to cripple American warships like was done against the USS Donald Cook this past week.

“Prince Rogers Nelson (57) found dead at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, MN,” the tweet reads. “We are investigating the circumstances of his death.”

The cause of death has yet to be disclosed.

The singing sensation  recorded over 39 albums throughout his career. Yet the most important room there was his knowledge room, where he would spend hours daily, studying the Bible.

Prince once said: “There’s an incredible peace in my life now and I’m trying to share it with people.”

Balancing the Anahata or Heart Chakra — Awaken Your Inner Spirit

By: Truth in Media

Follow us: @EOTMOnline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

 

 ****Awakening your Heart Chakra****

The Heart Chakra (Anahata) – A wellspring of Love; Warmth, Compassion, Joy and Peace — for all Humanity, and is located in the center of the chest at the Heart level.

Introduction to Anahata ChakraAnahata = Heart (Compassion, Divine Love)

The Anahata (4th Heart Chakra) — displays conscience and compassion when it is balanced. It’s all about how you manifest love, forgive others, and your feelings. This is a powerful Chakra, obviously. Here we have arrived to the Center of the Seven. (7) — 3 above, 3 below. (see picture above) Matter and Spirit united. This is a very powerful location in the body. It is directly connected to the Third Eye and the Crown Chakra. When this Chakra is overactive, the Ego will take over and there will be a lack of love in the heart of the person. People with a Heart Chakra out of balance will not want to go out of their way for others. Narcissistic is a good description. In some cases the person will appear to have no sense of self. (Walking Zombies??) There is no good will toward others.

  • Heart Chakra Affirmations to repeat daily:

I Love Myself.
I AM worthy of Love.
I forgive effortlessly. Forgiveness sets me free.
I forgive myself. I am wiser now and create a new reality.
I forgive everyone who has hurt me.
I send Love to their heart.
I have an abundance of Love to offer Others.
I give and receive Love easily and effortlessly.
Love is the core of my being. It is my Natural state.
I am a well spring of Love and Compassion.
I am a Child of the Universe.
I am LOVE.

Anahata also allows us to recognize and get in touch with the sacred and fundamental truth that runs through all of life and connects everything together. The “way of the heart” or the “path of the heart” is living your life from this energy center of love. It means living your life with loving kindness and compassion towards others. It means that your heart is open to others and you inspire kindness and compassion in others. You create safe and supportive environment. Others can feel your love and warmth. They feel loved and accepted unconditionally. People feel at peace around you, as there is no judgment coming from you. When Anahata is open and energy is flowing freely, you are not only loving to others, you are also loving to your self!

****Food That Fuels The Heart Chakra****

An important element to keep in consideration while attempting to connect consciously to your Heart Chakra, is food. Leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, dandelion greens are very beneficial to your heart on the physical level, as well as on the energetic level. Also AIR vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, squash…etc, and liquids like water….. are also important to aid the heart energy center.

Thoughtful Quotes ~ Forks in the Road….

By Carla B.

Follow us: @EOTMOnline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

When You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take It!

CROSSROADS — a place where two roads split… otherwise known as Forks in The Road. In religious circles, as well as folklore — “crossroads” also represent a location “between worlds,” and as such…. a place where mysterious events can take place. Symbolically, it can mean a locality where two realms touch and therefore representing duality, a place literally “neither here nor there.” What are your thoughts on Crossroads? Share with us below in the comments.

Forks in the road...a good thing, indeed.

“WHEN PEOPLE COME TO A FORK, THEY MUST CHOOSE EXACTLY WHERE THEY WANT TO GO. IT IS A PLACE OF CHOICE. USUALLY THEY HAVE FOREKNOWLEDGE OF THE WAY TO GO. EVERYONE HAS SUCH KNOWLEDGE. BUT THE DIVINER GOES BETWEEN THE PATHS TO A SECRET PLACE. HE KNOWS MORE THAN OTHER PEOPLE. HE HAS SECRET KNOWLEDGE.” –

Mercury Retrograde – A Cocooning….??? #SelfReflection

By Carla B

Follow us: @EOTMOnline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

Many of you have heard of the Mercury Retrograde. Nervous anxiety. Unable to concentrate. A moment in time and space that temporarily turns lives upside down. This energy, of sorts can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, with friends or co-workers and become weird and uncomfortable. Upheavals with travels and or electronics. Mercury Retrograde,  maybe even a somewhat dreaded but regular house guest of which we all can relate to….and when we do, well…we kick ourselves because we do not or cannot grasp how to properly deal with these types of intensities. So, what do we do? We do what we do best, blame it on someone or something…. or in this case, Mercury’s  Retrograde.

But what if we stop to think. … about it all, in the grand scheme of our very own lives. What is our truth, really?? How can we catch up with our real selves…?? Our true desires? Is it possible for us to form a new vision, a more positive and productive outlook on this life? Can we change course and become propelled towards a new vision of hope because of the pain we may experience in this instance? By truly understanding what Mercury retrograde manifests can it help to bring clarity and empowerment into your experience?  I believe so…and what better time to explore, when life becomes a bit, rough or  tough with our Afro puffs? (heeeyyyy!)

But seriously….. think about it. The potential of it all. Our progressive, collective minds creating, bringing to light innovative ideas, new thought… which can assist in uplifting the collective consciousness of the planet. Now, is a great time to experiment with out of the box ideas that can help to radically shift perceptions.

  • Food for thought — during a Mercury retrograde: Don’t take things too personal. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace, and double-check all of your emails, posts on Facebook, Twitter, etc… before hitting the send buttons. Most importantly, if you havent yet realized, many of the aspects in the Mercury retrograde can be extremely challenging. They can exacerbate the negative influences of life itself, and turn the theme of the day to annoyance or even to extreme danger, even violence. So take a step back or forward and breathe, exhale and know that there is something good and right that we can all walk away with/from, if only we look deep within ourselves…and transmute the darkness into light. <3 This is what I know, to be truth….and this is not the ego writing, thinking. We must reconnect with integrity, strength, patience, love for all…everyone and every thing…. connecting once again with Mother Earth and our Father in Heaven… on a mental level…reconnecting with our most purest state.

Check out the video below by Teal Swan, she explains exactly what many of us experience during the Mercury Retrograde and how it can benefit us all. Hope it helps, and if it does, please share….. sharing is caring ;-) .

“In the new age, spiritual and astrological community, mercury retrogrades have a bad reputation. Mercury retrogrades are famous for effecting electronic equipment, causing travel delays and cancellations, influencing breakdowns in communication such as things getting lost in translation, pieces of information going missing, the inability to finish sentences, arguments arising out of nowhere with seemingly no provocation, the inability to form a coherent thought.” — Click here to be redirected to Teal Swans Youtube.

Compassion, AWARENESS, Kindness…REMEMBERING — #LOVE #EVOLVE

By Carla B.

Follow us: @EOTMOnline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

So, if you’ve met me the past year or two…when thinking of me….you may recall I consider myself a student of all religions. A Gnostic. I’ve simply… for lack of a better word…. engrossed myself within the Hebrew language. Today, specifically….I was studying the word, REMEMBRANCE, moreso for reasons pertaining to #Synchronicities  and #SPIRITSCIENCE . When we learn to think #Hebraically —- well, we can gain a deeper understanding of the scriptures and, as a result, live out our lives in a more complete and balanced way. What’s interesting when researching worldly religions, the Semites of Bible times did not simply THINK truth, they EXPERIENCED it. And, as I have previously shared and emphasized in my blogs, TRUTH is as much encounter, experience as it is a scheme.
This experimental play on words reveals, in part, why #Judaism never really developed vast systems of thought, at least here in the United States. To the Jews, from what I have gathered…the DEED was always more important than the CREED.


RELATED:8 year old Adam shares his amazing CRYSTAL healing Grid, why…because he loves…

This Hebraic kindred spirit of sorts, connects thought and experience and is heavily reflected in the meanings of some of the words I’ve read in the Bible. For example, EMUNAH, the Hebrew word FAITH in Habakkuk 2:4 (the just shall live by his faith) — exhibits the feelings of constancy, steadiness or sure-footedness. Biblical faith…then is so much more than our elementary agreement or understanding to certain doctrines….it is unwavering trust that may indeed be backed up by ACTIONS.

#ZAKAR — the Hebrew word for #REMEMBER .
Many of us may think of #Memory as a purely #MENTAL faculty involving the #RETENTION of #KNOWLEDGE or #INFORMATION — but when we truly examine…. and or #INNERSTAND — what is #TRUTH ?? Well, to me… it eventually leads in some at least, …. a most #PURPOSEFUL #ACTION — understanding of the very essence of their SOUL. It awakens the adept to deeper meanings of his EXISTENCE. True #Enlightenment = #REMEMBRANCE — #REMEMBERING a fundamental aspect in the grand scheme. This happens only after lifetimes of lessons in secret doctrines, of sorts and only comes to those that seeks it.
ZAKAR is almost always translated “REMEMBER,” in the King James version of the HOLY BIBLE. Occasionally, though, it is rendered as “THINK, RECORD or MENTION.” These variations in translation provides an indication that ZAKAR includes both #THOUGHT and #DEED .
All this being said…. IS it so hard to fathom that GOD may want us ALL to do more than just be #AWARE of the fact he IS….. ?? Is it possible that GOD is urging us to take #POSITIVE action to help save #HUMANITY — #OURSELVES ??
IN the Hebrew scriptures, it also outlines and or defines ZAKAR (REMEMBER) — as closely relating to the #ONE true #DIVINE #Creator #GOD….. “Remembering…” HIS Covenant with his #PEOPLE — #ABRAHAM , #ISAAC , and with #JACOB . (Exodus 2:24) In this instance, GOD, remembering HIS promise…. leads to HIS active participation/intervention to #RESCUE #ISRAEL from #Slavery . This connection is unquestionable.
Numbers 10:9 – “And if ye go to war in your land against the #ENEMY that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your GOD, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.”
The word ZAKAR appears prominently in scripts recorded within all religions. Such thought calls upon GOD not just to be #Cognizant or #AWARE of our very #EXISTENCE — but also to take action on #Humanities behalf. Does it not?
These scriptures instruct the people to remember the commandments. Example, in DEUT. 8:18; Joshua 1:13; Eccl. 12:1.) “Moses commands the Israelite’s to remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way.  Here it seems Moses wants them to take decisive action against the terrorists who had ruthlessly attacked the most vulnerable Israelite’s during the early stages of their journey from EGYPT.
By now many of us have seen that REMEMBRANCE is so much more than just a #MENTAL exercise. Instead, it is a recognition that either leads to or results from an #APPROPRIATE #ACTION / #CAUSE . Let us remember GOD/GODDESS in our lives and in our #Studies — #MEDITATION — trusting that our #DIVINE #CREATORS will REMEMBER their #Promises and bring us all to a full understanding/INNERsranding .
Lastly, all of these examples in which the word ZAKAR is mentioned entails a simple #KNOWLEDGE that is accompanied by  our #ACTION . How YOU define/discern/REMEMBER … is all up to YOU.
