My Salutation to my 200th Hub. A Dedication to Hub Pages; to ALL My Friends
This Prose is the welcome arrival of my 200th piece, including poetry, here on Hub Pages. Seems only yesterday that I celebrated my 100th Hub, and here I am again, on my 2nd hundred one. I do not know how far my Lord will carry me, but whatsoever His loving request, I will most assuredly follow.
This is my fifth year here, and I have not always written much. I started as a prose writer, and then drifted into Poems, purely because I felt that it was a better medium to convey the same message, but in a shorter form.
Throughout this period, I have tried to serve, to inspire; to reach the Heart and to awaken – through His Grace – human aspiration for the Higher Beauty, for Truth, for Love; for Light ....I can only hope that I have been of some small service to others.
The life of an intuitive Soul is a blessingful one. The Higher Light guides his fingers, and this same Light provides many instruments or branches as catalysts, to assist in this cause. Hub Pages has been one of these mediums, to offer a welcome haven, to enable me to travel a little, towards fulfilling my potential.
Here I have crafted words of sublimity, inspired lofty ideals, and reached out to the good in man. I seek no other purpose but to serve, for I know that it is in serving my brothers and sisters; in inspiring them to grow, lays my own growth.
Unintentionally, I have on occasions walked on sensitive paths; tread in uncomfortable waters, but mostly I have been blessed with wonderful and loving beings, who, like the hummingbird, have sung songs in my Spirit. For me the beauty of life lies in service, in the capacity to empathise, to sincerely and soulfully reach out to the spark in man, and to joyfully praise.
With Love to All
Here on Hub pages you have offered me your friendship, your selflessness and golden hearts; you have touched the God within, in noble and sometimes sacrificing endeavours.
Man is innately God, and at times cannot but shows the Light and image of Spirit. This is my firm Faith or conviction, and I cherish the Highest in ALL. Doesn’t the evil-doer show sweetness to the nightingale? He, too, however hidden, has the flame within.
When the Light descends and the darkness vanishes, like the strong winds, only the zephyrs remain and there is then a calm and cool breeze. The running river flows dynamically, powerfully and majestically down the mountain, winding a fiery path, until it reaches the sea where all is calm. The end of all turmoil is Silence, and the depth of Silence is Peace.
So I thank Hub Pages most sincerely. I thank all my friends and also all those who contributed to my Hubs and made me worthy of your goodness. I pay my homage at your feet, and I look forward to many more endeavours together.
Here I have met those who share the Light of God; those, who, for the Master’s own purposes, has chosen to serve in a different way, which is nevertheless timeless, unique and necessary.
It is all the Beloved’s Play. She chooses to manifest in whatever way pleases Her and all is necessary for the greater good. As such, She sometimes finds diversity to be the order of the day.
Both Light and Shadow, like night and day, are the dance of the Beloved, and would always enfold us in their arms. Thus we then walk along the Path of illumination, knowingly or unknowingly, like a flower, until the petal unfolds, and we feel its fragrance.
Today I will not name names, but there are those who follow me assiduously and diligently, and are openly admirers of my poems and prose. I thank you all - for your inner divinity, for the Love unparalleled, emanating brightly within your Hearts.
May you be garlanded with many beautiful roses, and the quest for inner happiness, be even more joyful, blossoming and fruitful. May the Absolute, the Supreme Mother-Father-Consciousness, guide and enfold us all, in Its loving embrace. Om Shanti! Shanti! Shanti! (An Incantation for Peace Supreme).
I reach out to you all, with my heartfelt Love. Glory be!
