Nineteen years ago, on January 5th, 1997, my Father passed away. Life was never going to be the same from that moment on.
As the years fade away, life is more and more simple and steady. I sense the one sound that reverberates in my life. I see the distance I have traveled, the continuous waves, coming and going. I remember this day. The pain of loss was heavy, but slowly, it passed and passed. What I remember now is his greatness, his gifts to humanity, his deep and sensitive insights, and most of all, his deep love for all people. He saw who we are and steadily held a transformative image of us in his heart. The heart of the true warrior of light is mighty; it protects all who come near it.
I love Dad’s poems; they present a person I did not readily see at the time. What people see in us is not what we are truly. But, if we have someone who is able to see into our souls and see the true person we are, then that is a magnet we can rely on. That will be the light that guides us. Poetry reveals a hidden side of us and lays it out for all to see, without apology. I would like to share a poem with you here.

The Ageless Wisdom Teachings tell us that the Lord Christ contacts humanity on seven specific occasions. These are times that a deliberate attempt is made by Christ to connect to us, to have us hear Him and respond to him.
These times are:
- When we are baptized.
- When we receive Holy Communion.
- At the time of Wesak.
- Every Full Moon, when the Sun is in direct alignment with Earth.
- Every Saturday night.
- Every sunset.
- Every midnight on Christmas Eve.
This year, we are aligned to receive the blessings of Christ three out of the seven occasions mentioned above:
Christmas Eve, the full moon is early Christmas day, and when millions of people receive Holy Communion on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This year, 2015, can be a special year and a turning point in our life.
How can we connect to that energy point of the Universe and find clarity and answers to our inner yearnings?
