The Way - 6
This is the Way.
Long ago, those above tested that which is below. But for the
finding of one good man, two cities and many people would have
been saved. Alas, not one was found. The destruction and death
that rained down on Sodom was, as they say, "of biblical
proportions." This time, two stood above the rest. Two who heard
the Way and realized the significance. Two stood faithful when
silence and darkness was their only reward. Two small flickering
flames that refused to go out. She who sent me is pleased. The
Moon is full once again with that which it has not felt in so
very long - hope.
I have been called Ma-Di, by some. It means "Sent by the Moon."
My real name is not important, and since I was born under the
sign of the Moon, I find the name of Ma-Di to be an appropriate
pen name. It should be pronounced "Mah-Dee." There is a
not-too-small portion of poetic irony in using this name. Many
years from now, you will understand.
I will soon begin to write the Way messages again. It order for
you to appreciate them for what they are, you must know what they
were once. Long ago. The Way is not new. It has been with you all
along. All that I tell you was once known, but is now forgotten.
It has been hidden in the shadows of ignorance and the darkness
of man's own desire to dominate and control his fellow man. I
intend to be a light for you in that darkness. A light that
shines on the path of your life so that once again, you may find
There is nothing special in what I do, except in the reason that
I do it. I do it because I believe in you. I do it because I love
each and every one of you. It is the same love that would move me
to help one of my children or my brother, sister, mother, father
or wife. It is done without condition or need for payment. This
is love at it purest and its most powerful. If you can but learn
to love one another in this Way, there is nothing that you will
not achieve, and nothing in the heavens that will be denied you.
This, above all else is the Way.
Come with me now on a journey to your own past. I want to show
you that the Way can be found, if you but open your eyes. Before
you hear my Way, listen and understand the Way of old and wonder
at how new it sounds. These passages were removed from the book
you call the Bible. Long ago, the Way was spread throughout the
world by special teachers. I have selected a few that I believe
to be important. I will add a comment to some.
Matthew 3:3 - For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet
Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the WAY of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Matthew 7:13 - Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the
gate, and broad is the WAY, that leadeth to destruction, and many
there be which go in thereat.
Life is a series of choices. There are many different choices and
many people who can influence you. Know what it is in life you
want to achieve. To live on a world where insanity rules, and in
the end not to have been driven insane yourself, that is your
path, your WAY. Keep the path of your life firmly in your sights
and always straight ahead.
Matthew 7:14 - Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the
WAY, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matthew 11:10 - For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I
send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy WAY
The messengers or teachers have been sent many times to many
lands. Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, Muhammad, these are a few. They
were all different and yet they all spoke the same WAY.
Matthew 13:4 - And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the WAY
side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
Matthew 21:32 - For John came unto you in the WAY of
righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the
harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not
afterward, that ye might believe him.
Matthew 22:16 - And they sent out unto him their disciples with
the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and
teachest the WAY of God in truth, neither carest thou for any
man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
Luke 1:79 - To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the
shadow of death, to guide our feet into the WAY of peace.
Deja vu is WAY cool.
John 10:1 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not
by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other WAY,
the same is a thief and a robber.
Religion is a powerful thing. Many times, men have used this
power to inflict their own will and desires on others. It has led
to many so-called Holy Wars and the oppression of half the
world's population, namely woman. The door that leads to the Way
has been clearly marked. Time and time again, detour signs were
thrown up to help guide them back. They know who they are, and
when the time comes they will be dealt with.
John 14:4 - And whither I go ye know, and the WAY ye know.
John 14:5 - Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou
goest; and how can we know the WAY?
To know the difference between right and wrong - this is the Way.
To do good for it's sake alone - this is the Way. To hurt no
living thing, neither in body or spirit without an absolute and
justified reason - this is the Way. To see beyond the veil and
perceive the potential good in all things - this is the Way. To
oppose that which is evil and destructive with all your might -
this is the Way. Is this Way so alien to you? Are these things
not known, or are they hidden deep inside you and is the effort
to retrieve them simply too much effort? To search for the Way is
to search for truth. To find the Way is to find yourself. There
is no other Way.
I am the Way. You are the Way. In the Way, we are all One.
John 14:6 - Jesus saith unto him, I am the WAY, the truth, and
the life: no man cometh unto the Mother, but by me.
Yes, I changed it. I'm allowed. There are many things which are
not as they seem. If you think this is something, wait - the best
is yet to come. There is much to learn but even a greater amount
to unlearn. The path has become twisted, the signposts changed.
Not to worry, I know the Way, by heart.
Acts 16:17 - The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying,
These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto
us the WAY of salvation.
Acts 18:25 - This man was instructed in the WAY of the Lord; and
being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the
things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
Acts 19:23 - And the same time there arose no small stir about
The Way is truth and truth is like a storm.
Acts 24:14 - But this I confess unto thee, that after the WAY
which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers,
believing all things which are written in the law and in the
Jesus was a heretic. If this be heresy then, make the most out of
it, my friend. The greatest strife is usually caused by people
fighting over identical beliefs. It's like two small children who
beat each other up over whether chocolate or vanilla, is the
better ice cream. Sometimes there is a legitimate excuse, like
the frozen yogurt punk. But as long as it's ice cream, regardless
of the flavor, you scream, I scream, we ALL scream for ice cream.
Romans 3:2 - Much every WAY: chiefly, because that unto them were
committed the oracles of God.
Romans 3:12 - They are all gone out of the WAY, they are together
become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
There are some up there who believe this. Please, believe me.
Before it's too late.
Romans 3:17 - And the WAY of peace have they not known:
1 Corinthians 12:31 - But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet
shew I unto you a more excellent WAY.
1 Thessalonians 3:11 - Now God himself and our Mother, and our
Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.
James 5:20 - Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner
from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall
hide a multitude of sins.
A single act of kindness is worth ten thousand thousand, bent
knees and muttered words. To help another rid themselves of evil
is the ultimate act of kindness. It is called love.
2 Peter 2:21 - For it had been better for them not to have known
the Way of righteousness than, after they have known it, to turn
from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
To do a thing and know no better is ignorance. It is an act of
kindness to educate the ignorant. To know a thing is wrong and do
it anyway, is stupidity. To do a wrong thing intentionally is
evil. The Way is the flame of knowledge to the ignorant and a
flaming sword of destruction to those who do evil.
These words were all written long ago, and yet their meaning is
as true today as then. They were given to the peoples of Earth by
their brothers and sisters from the stars. They did this because
in you, they saw the potential for good. They knew that if only
you had enough knowledge, you would find your own Way back home,
there to become a valued and treasured member of the Human Races.
If it hurts your ego to know that you are only a small part of a
larger human culture, then you have farther to go than was
There are many surprises on the horizon for Earth and her people.
You will surely stumble and fall on your Way. As in times before,
there is someone out there to lend a helping hand. This does not
mean that you should expect them to cure all your problems for
you. The best Way to learn and grow is by doing. Some of the best
lessons you can learn are those that hurt the most. For they are
not easily forgotten, nor are they usually, foolishly repeated.
The Way is your map to finding that which lies beyond. It has a
power that overcomes all obstacles. Jesus and Muhammad brought
the Way, and it changed the course of human history forever. We
shall soon see whether their efforts were in vain.
Remember - I am the match, but you are the fire. Burn brightly.
Let your light pierce the darkness that surrounds this world.
Give those who are cold, your warmth. Let your light illuminate
the path for others. And when need be, become a fire storm
consuming and utterly destroying that which is evil. I sense a
storm coming, the likes of which the Earth has never known. It is
our storm and this is our time. Will you sit still in apathy and
let the world pass by, or will you become the stormbringer? Is it
your destiny to whimper a surrender or scream to the very reaches
of Heaven, "cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war?"
Let the Ragnarok begin.
