¯** ~ **¯ 
It is a thing of beauty, transition is. 
When the dry majestic twig starts to sprout a bloom.
When the first sunray melts a snowflake.
No longer winter, not yet fully spring…
but somewhere in~between seasons.

It is a thing of beauty, transition is. 
When the first seed opens its heart to bloom.
When the clouds leave and the sky turns blue.
No longer spring, not yet fully summer…
but somewhere in~between seasons. 

It is a thing of beauty, transition is.
When the first leaf falls to the earth. 
When the trees start baring their branches.
No longer summer, not yet fully autumn…
but somewhere in~between seasons. 

It is a thing of beauty, transition is.
When the sky turns grey and the rain falls.
When the first snow flake magestically falls.
No longer autumn, not yet fully winter …
but somewhere in~between seasons. 

It is a thing of beauty, transition is. 
When the old dies and the new is born.
When growth flows in the cycle of nature.
No longer the past, not yet fully the future…
but somewhere in~between seasons.

This present moment where creation lives.
This present in~between season where a new life begins.
It is a thing of beauty, transition is.

♡══════{Margarita (͡๏̯͡๏) Soul2Soul}™══════♡

Since I was little I have loved football and watched the World Cup with much pleasure.  However, I feel uncomfortable with competition as it evokes separation of nations into winners and loosers. Sport should unite, uplift and bring pleasure.

We should not let it get us down when our team looses.
We should not develope animosity towards the other team.
We should not allow a game of football to cause sadness.
We should not evoke negative energy.

Instead we need to celebrate the game and play it in the spirit of brotherhood,  knowing we are not loosers because we did not win the match, knowing we are not better or worse than anyone else.  Acknowledging it is just a ball game and celebrate all the goals and appreciate the talent of all the players… for the love of the game.

Watching the Football World Cup makes me see how the game of imitates life.

The Commentators & Media:
They are the eyes and voice that bring the game into our homes.
They relay the facts as objectively as possible.
They keep us informed, share their expert opinion
and provide the data.

The Referee and Linesmen:
They monitor the game and determine its flow.
Some will judge fairly, others misjudge.
Some judge egotistically, others with fairness.
Their decisions affect the crowd and players.
Their ruling determines the mood of the game.

The Players:
The passion and love they have for the game.
Their hard work training to harness their talent.
Their sportsmanship and their reactions.
They will either tackle dirty or they will play with integrity.
Some play with their ego, others with their soul.
They cry and rejoice according to the result.

The Crowd:
All the emotions are felt in every moment on and off the pitch.
The passion, excitement, anguish and stress the crowd go through watching the game.
The anger and frustration when they feel the referee was unfair towards their team.
The hatred sometimes projected against the opposition.
The sadness when their team loses.
The jubilation when their team wins.

What amazes me the most is that they all look to the heavens.
They all pray for their team to win.
They do not realize that God, the Almighty, the Universe… is neutral.

Spirit does not choose sides.
Spirit does not have favourites amongst its children.
Spirit does not see competion.
Spirit does not see winners and losers.
Spirit enjoys the game as a neutral spectator.
Spirit celebrates the talent of all.
Spirit knows this is just a sport for the ego.
Spirit has fun because it sees all as One team playing a game.

The One Mountain with many Seasons and Slopes {Margarita Horianos}

( , , )( , , )   ~The One Mountain Range
¯**´¯**´¯     with many Seasons and Slopes ~

There is only The One Mountain.
We all climb the same mountain.
We all strive to reach the same summit.
It is just that we each travel on a different slope of the same mountain range,
on the path to Self and to God.
No matter who or what we are,
Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu….
Optimist, pessimist, believer, athiest…
Male, female, black, white…
We are all on the same journey of self discovery.

The mountain has many ever-changing seasons, ever-changing slopes
and we each will encounter them all at some point
during our journey…
Some days some travel on the slope of green meadows.
For others it is a rocky slope.
Yet for others there is snow on the slope.
And some encounter a sandy slope.
The sun shines on one side on the slope.
While strong winds prevail on the other side of the slope.
And some encounter rain on the slope.
There will be daytime on the one side of the slope
and darkness on the other side.
Some have not even reached a slope and
many are still only at the foothill.

No matter the ups and down, the twists and turns
the slope we are on brings to us,
we have the choice to change our perception and learn from the journey.
Thus we can overcome all the conditions that each slope brings.
Yes, we will surely encounter all sides of the slope on our journey to the summit
and our perception is what will determine our reality of it and the feelings evoked.

So no matter who we are and what our beliefs, we are all One on the same journey
on the same mountain.
We get deceived that it is a different mountain we are each on,
but in fact from a distance, from above, it can be clearly seen that it is the same one mountain range with its different surrounding elements, different seasons and different slopes.

Let us therefore journey together and not apart.
Let us journey in peace, harmony and love.

( , , )( , , ) ?•*¨*•.Q&A With Myself.•*¨*•?
¯**´¯**´¯

★ WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A “CHRISTIAN” ?
★WHO DOES CHRIST CALL A “CHRISTIAN”?

* Is a Christian someone who believes in the existence of Christ?

* And if so, what is it that the Christian believes about Christ?…that he was the Messiah?

* Does it also mean you have to follow the traditions of the church in order to truly be a Christian?

* If so, then which organised religious denomination do you follow? Which one is the “true” church that Jesus is the Messiah of? They are all so different in their traditions, there are so many divisions of the church???

* Catholic? Orthodox? Protestant? Evangelic? Lutheran? Mormon Latter-Day Saints? Baptist?  Methodist? Presbyterian? Pentecostal? Episcopalian? Anglican? Jehovah’s Witness? Seventh-Day Adventist? Quaker? Dutch Reform?   …..which?

* Well 90% of the time we automatically follow the church we were born into, without questioning, we follow that which our parents were

* And what if you do not follow any particular religious institution?

* What if you consider yourself spiritual – Believing, but indepentantly of church dogma i.e. not religious, believing in a universal Christ.  What then, are you then not a Christian?

★ SO, WHO WOULD CHRIST CALL A  “CHRISTIAN”?

* Would it be the person who belongs to a particular church and follows the traditions of that particular Christian church?
*And off course, I go back to – if so, then which church ?

* Afterall wasn’t Jesus a radical who rebelled against the political & religious establishments of His time, and was crucified for it?

* What of the other children of God? All of us are children of God, so God tells us, so what about the Jew? the Muslim? the Hindu? the Buddhist? the Sikh?, to name a few, and even the Athiest? What about them?

* Or would The “True follower” be the one who lives their life by following the VALUES of Jesus Christ regardless of their religion?

* Since the values of all religions are PEACE AND LOVE
what then truly makes us a Child of God made in the image of God?

* If a person truly upholds the religious beliefs, traditions, dogma of their religious institution, be it Catholism or  Greek Orthodox or Judiasm or Islam or Buddhism or any of the zillion religious organisations – if this devout follower
hurts another may it be physicalsly, mentally or emotionally, is that person the “True Christian”?

* OR is it the person whose values are of one….

~ who offers help to another when it is needed?
~ who speaks their truth without malice or condemnation?
~ who has pure intention and does not demeen another?
~ who gives support to another when they need it?
~ who does not judge another because of their beliefs, skin colour, sexual orientation, financial status?
~ who does not hold grudges and wishes the best for those who hurt them?
~ who believes in the brotherhood of man?
~ who sees another as an extension of self?
~ who forgives?
~ who bdlieves in peace?
~ who Loves unconditionally?
~ who does their best to follow the values of Jesus Christ, of Moses, of Allah, of Buddah, of the creator, of God?
(which when religious dogma is removed, at their core, they are all actually the same)

★SO, WHO IS THE “CHRISTIAN”???

( , , )( , , )    “Who Am I ?” ~ “I Am…”
¯** ~ **¯ 

The most profound question we can ask ourselves is:
“Who Am I?”

The most profound answer we can give follows:
“I Am……”

What follows “I Am” defines how we view ourselves and thus how we live our life.

Most answer:  I Am…
woman/man ~ wife/husband ~ mother/daughter ~ father/son …
~~~describing the roles we play in life…or
lawyer ~ doctor ~ secretary ~ plumber ~ actor ~ farmer …
~~~ describing the things we do in life.

These are answers that come from our human side, our ego/personality.  We get caught up in everyday life on this plane and forget who we really are, we forget what our true essence is. Yes, we are all these things, they are part of our busy human experience, but we are so much more. 

When we find the stillness within, we remember our true being and then we also answer from our Heart, from our Soul…

♡ I Am a Spiritual Being, who has a body, and is having a human experience
♡ I Am pure Potential
♡ I Am the field of all possibilities
♡ I Am limitless Abundance
♡ I Am my heartfelt deepest desires
♡ I Am Bliss
♡ I Am Creator
♡ I Am Love
…and so are you ♥

There is First Class for 1% of passengers;
There is Business Class for 9% of passengers;
There is Economy Class for 90% of passengers.
And even Economy Class is further sub-divided in many sectors.

Even though we are all on the same plane;
Even though we are all travelling to the same destination;
Even though we all have the same highs and lows…
Just like in life, the comfort of the journey is determined by one’s bank account and not by the deeds of the heart.

At present in London we are in that “inbetween seasons period”. Winter is turning into Spring.  Today observing  the flowing change of the cycle of nature, this is what came up… (͡๏̯͡๏)

It is a thing of beauty, transition is.
When the dry majestic twig starts to sprout a bloom.
When the first sunray melts a snowflake.
No longer winter, not yet fully spring…
but somewhere in~between seasons.

It is a thing of beauty, transition is.
When the first seed opens its heart to bloom.
When the clouds leave and the sky turns blue.
No longer spring, not yet fully summer…

No longer summer, not yet fully autumn…

When the first snow flake magestically falls.
No longer autumn, not yet fully winter …

When growth flows in the cycle of nature.
No longer the past, not yet fully the future…
