At night, When all was quiet and still, I watched from the darkness. I saw the glowing Red light of fire, As the forge roared And sparks were shooting, Bursting, dazzling, The star magic Of metal transmuted. I heard the roaring forge, The whoosh and quenching sizzle, Then the Mighty Hammer Bang BANG Bang BANG, An ancient song Of strength and steel, The heartbeat of creation, Intent and work, Forged and quenched and hammered, Bang BANG, Bang BANG. The shadows flow And retract, Flow and retract. I watched From the darkness, The Night Gifted Magician, Immersed in creation, Forging swords, And blades, and tools; Each carrying its own Particular Blessing of Power. .

ANOTHER LETTER OF WARNING AND GRATITUDE FROM AGAWELA
I am truly grateful for honesty.
Courage is required to face one’s self, and those whom you carry in your heart, without disguise.
Deceit is the most hurtful of betrayals.
Backstabbing and gossip and innuendo and pseudo-insights fueled by misunderstanding and half-truths can cause permanent harm of unknown magnitude through unknown generations.
Betrayal of confidence and trust can cause irreparable harm of unknown magnitude through unknown generations.
Pretending virtue, pretending to pray, doing the motions of rituals without true good intent can open the way for malignant forces and malicious entities to become part of your sphere. This can be a damaging influence, not only on your own life, but on those for whom you truly care —- If you are capable of love, what can cause more grief than to harm the innocents whom you truly care for? False intent can manifest as illness, physical damage in an accident of seemingly unknown cause, or shame, grief, and pain in the heart of the innocent one. Not knowing the why of how they feel, they can become self destructive. Please be of true good intent in all of your actions. If you say you are praying, if you are acting out the outward motions … do PRAY.
I am grateful for those who are whole with themselves and honest with the universe.
I am grateful, also, for the harsh lessons learned through painfully resolved deceit, knowing that some things will never be comfortably resolved. I know that ongoing deceit causes wounds which cannot heal, with unknown repercussions generating sadness as an essence. I also know that deceit can be resolved with honestly facing the deceit and its causes, this also causes wounds, but these wounds, though scarring, can heal.
Thank you for all that you have done.
Thank you. I thank you all.
“The truth shall set you free. But first it will piss you off.” Gloria Steinem

As a beautiful
I danger dance
Power of joy
My skin glistens
I drink the divine
My happy eyes
Alone I am
As a rain

When the intent is the betterment of self, is there INNOCENCE IN INTENT, when awareness of hurt or damage to another is absent?
Are consequences, or intent, more important?
