Isis Encountering

As I emerged from the green lotus of my matter-spirit reality, I brought within me the divine image and name of Isa. Isa is Arabic for the name of Jesus (pronounced Essa). It is the image and name that I have felt a great affinity with over the last few years, and one that I honor as my vehicle of expression within the total expression of the Beloved.

I saw within my inner visioning, a strand of golden light, that seemed to represent a shore between the world of the created and the universe of creation. I looked upward and outwards to a heavens of turning stars and softly luminance planets that I could not recognize as known solar systems. The space between these world systems was not dark as in the night sky, but shined with a translucent ethereal beauty that I find hard to describe.

The light was subtly palpable, and my heart center resonated to it, as if singing within the light of an audible vibration that took hold of my being and transfigured my consciousness so that it echoed spontaneously to celestial chimes that uplifted my awareness within its vast joyful hymn.

Entranced, I then looked from the golden beach to a horizon which held beneath it a perfect silver sea of singing waters. Yet these seemed to be more condensed light waves then water. The tide of these waves ran gently but irresistibly to meet the shore upon which I now stood. I looked along the shore and called to the Beloved to send to me the divine entity that would guide me in this place of heightened consciousness. Almost instantaneously, as if materializing from her own inner space, a slender female form appeared walking from the middle distance towards me.

As she walked towards me the substance of the shore seemed to part before her, making a silver path she opened between I and her. I could now make out her appearance. She had the form of a young lady dressed in a simple white robe gathered at the waist with a thin emerald belt. Her hair was jet black and cut simply in the style we are used to associating with Egyptian goddesses. Her face was a beautiful oval and it shone with a vibrant radiance of white gold. I found myself both at once sensually attracted to her femininity, and, yet held in thrall by the aura of majesty that emanated from her being.

She paused a short distance away from me and smiled to me. Her eyes were as sparkling turquoise stars shining from a inner radiance that seemed to arrive from the depths of love. She seemed both mortal and yet completely alien to the human condition. I have no conception how long we looked upon each other. Her gaze was totally without affectation. She simply saw me as herself and seemed to congratulate my divinity as if seeing her own reflection there. It was as if we both bathed in a intimate pool of love that her presence created.

Then she slowly turned to gaze to the sea of light that stretched to the vast horizon of starry illumination. I too found myself compelled by love to follow her looking, as if her vision was to be a shared moment of wonder. It seemed we looked from the same sacred perspective as one. I heard her speak as an inner voice of love within my heart. The music of her thoughts played upon my awareness like delicate peels from a carillon of singing silence.

In essence, these are the thought waves that she brought to me. Each one seemed charged with a meaning I could not fathom, but held to be a truth that would eventually be revealed to me. I but listened to the words that were not words but rather patterns of light that envisioned images of reality upon my awareness.

Isa, I am your guide in this place of your love awakening. I am known in the earth mysteries as Isis, daughter of love and beauty. I am Sophia of a thousand names. Consort to the flame of humanity. The dove of love's desiring. Given to you my love as the emblem of your holiness. Honor me as your wholeness, not as above you, but as one with you.

The stars that you look upon are vortices of reality. Each sun holds infinite worlds within it for the heart traveler. All is a spiral of creation that Love has awoken within Her. We are from the light. The womb and matrix of Her who births all realities. The play of life's duality is a dance of desire, that meets to part upon the wave of new creation. The great Attraction is love's desiring for its completion in you. The mystery of this is the Beloved's movement from Herself into Herself. Just as the ocean moves within itself to manifest waves, so does nature in all its transcendence lap and lie within itself to awaken the bliss of union, and part once more to reach within another wave of rebirthed consciousness.

Rest now and be enlightened by this meaning, there is nothing for you to attempt, but only experience. Experience of what is, shall lead you to the balance of harmony within experience. Follow always the heart of love, in any world you create in the name of Her who is but Love. We are the children of the Father/Mother, of the unseen light and the manifest light. We are the expression of Her who is become us, that we may return to Her, as one love, gifted to the uncreated One.

Of a sudden I was made invisible to all sense and laid within a void of peace, returning at last into my world environment, at rest within my physical body and within the soul of the world again. The meaning of this light message may never be clear to me, and I no doubt I have translated it imperfectly, but I offer it as it seemed to come to me.
