Angels- the Quiet Ally
Tony DeLorger © 2002
As we progress through the ragged course of our seemingly erratic lives,
a watchful eye is focussed upon our every qualm and indecision,
hoping that the light of truth will somehow reach us and deliver us from the repetitive cycles of learning and the tedium of our blind misunderstandings.
With grace and eternal patience these souls wait in the shadow of truth,
and pray for that spark to appear from deep within, a spark of pure love once planted in each and every one of us at the very beginning of time.
Then, with this recognition of our divine potential, these beings become enlivened to action, reaching out to us, holding us & guiding us toward the freedom of truth.
When our world seems grey, the colour of life somehow bleached
as if under a torturous sun, we will find their hands upon our shoulders ,
soothing our pain with warmth and the love of the divine mother.
When we unexpectedly trip to discover what truly lies before us or startle to notice what up until that moment had remained unnoticed…it is they.
When we are without hope and a glimmer suddenly and miraculously appears
like the twinkle of the North Star… it is they.
When we are lost in the world of men, yet somehow by circumstance
led to redemption…it is they.
For however we see it or whatever we believe, there is no explaining these kind vigilant souls who lurk in the shadows of our existence.
They ask for nothing, they take nothing, they seek no gratification, but only wish to share with us the glory and magic of the process of life and the power of Love.
We know these souls as Angels.
Like the shimmer of golden light across water at dusk, these beings exist.
Like a heavenly mist of stars they descend to the world of men.
There for those with sight to see, they work often undetected and then are gone,
like the final glistening of the setting sun.
When we poor mortals, lost within our material world need consolation,
Angels are there at every turn.
It is well that we know of them, for they are as much a part of our lives
as each breath that we take, each thought that we make.
However there is no need to believe in Angels,
because they already believe in us.
