Wonderwork

Tonight we find ourselves as sojourners,
Sweeping across the galaxy.
Each of us has inscribed a cardinal alliance
To make Earth our home.

The journey pivots on our freedom to choose
In an unbounded Universe.
Emerging from the emptiness of space,
The message arrives heaven blown.

May we turn to our adversaries in peace
And rise above our discontent.
For if we allow love to capture our souls
And make the shadows bright,
We give ourselves to be absorbed,
To merge with every race and creed,
To sing the darkness a name,
The manifestation of our reverent might.

With this endeavor,
We ignite the candle of our own illumination,
So that we may open our minds
And meet one another on life's crossway.
The lodestar shines clear,
Guiding our hearts with celestial splendor
To fathom the oneness of spirit
As the miracle of each and every day.

Vision

I had a very powerful vision during my meditation this afternoon. Ramana Maharshi was standing before me. He moved his hand across my brow, leaving a white line on my forehead that was 4" across and almost 2" wide (I have seen similar markings in photographs). As he was doing this, I saw a bright white light and experienced absolute serenity and joy that continues still. . . Does anyone know what this white mark on the forehead signifies? If so, please contact me - thank you ♥

Postscript:

"The white mark is the sign of Lord Shiva - this is what he placed upon your brow. Most auspicious indeed! You are truly blest with this darshan dream from our Great Master." -Alan Jacobs, President Ramana Maharshi Foundation United Kingdom

"As far as I know the mark on the brow is ashes that signify that the ego shall be absolved. All three aspects; the gunas the trimurti shall become as ashes. You are really asking to be swallowed by the divine when you are putting ashes on your forehead. That is how I understand it and your description is very alive! I can see Bhagavan rubbing the ashes on your head when reading this. This is BLESSING. A Sattvic mind can only experience such a beautiful thing." -Marco Mazzella

Dear Alan and Marco ♥ I am so grateful that you are here, sharing your wisdom with all of us. Love blessings from the Heart ~ Cathy
