Hellebore blooming I was shocked by what I heard on the news this morning via one of our local radio stations (I thought they were more or less independent but now I realize they go right along with the system). They informed us that measures of heightened security will be taken at the Breton […]
If you are in Arès during the August session of the pilgrimage, you can find a man who organizes an expressive arts workshop, very laid back, very open with an Arèsian theme. He furnishes art supplies and all are welcome. You can see some of his work here: http://mondechange.blogspirit.com/
My husband and I participated one morning. I decided to do a bit of graphics with the words that sum up the main idea of penitence– love, peace, forgiveness. (There is also freedom from prejudice, judgment, and spiritual intelligence, but it would have been hard to fit all that on the 21x14cm paper.)
If I keep these words ever present in the back of my mind, they help me change and to change my actions which will change the world.
My husband does not usually do art work. Here is what he did:
“L’Ile bleue”, the Blue Island (RA xiv/13)
From the notes in the bilingual English-French edition of The Revelation of Arès, here is an explanation of what the Blue Island represents. “The supreme, ultimate refuge of the just man in contrast to the dry island, his temporary earthly refuge. The Blue Island refers to the abode of the souls waiting for Eden to be gradually restored by good men and for God’s Day to make that restoration complete.”
If we practice love, peace-making, forgiveness, freedom from prejudice, developing our spiritual intelligence, we will get to that Blue Island which for the moment seems to be a Utopia, very far off.
I am trying out the feature mentioned in a daily post challenge so as to embed a map.
This will give you an idea of where the events of 1974 and 1977 occurred, in France, west of Bordeaux. Although one can benefit from praying in the chapel where the Creator and Jesus as messenger spoke, the most important thing is not to go there, but rather to realize the message in one’s heart and daily life. The Revelation of Arès teaches that we can cause a new day to dawn, recreate the garden of Eden, by changing within, practicing love, forgiveness, peacemaking, being free from prejudice, awakening our spiritual intelligence. This effort is called penitence but has nothing to do with punishment. It is a joy to walk in the direction our Creator intended, radiating love, seeking Good. I’m not saying I’m always full speed ahead, but this is my guiding light. Even the smallest effort helps to make good contagious. One day it will triumph.
