"There burns a fire inside each of us beyond all proportion and harmony that cannot be quenched and whose beauty of flames lies in strange play. It is propelled by fiery pulses of exertion, moving us between the many darknesses that frequently visit our hearts and minds; the greatest plague of which is mankind's inhumanity to his neighbour.
If only man could dismantle his destiny, we might see beyond the illusion that we are only physical. We would see that we are much more than mere skeleton, skin and bones. We would see what wonderful beings we can become when we give way to the earthly spirit and embrace heavenly desire.
There is a fire in the spirit of the world. It is a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we will ever encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering we cannot understand and too much pain we feel unable to endure. Then suddenly, when we are about to despair of man's feeble contribution to his neighbour, this burning spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways. It is they who will one day grow wings and become the guardians to all that is good and wholesome.
Many of Chinese origin believe such guardian angels to have been born in the Chinese Year of the Horse, whereas I believe them to be born every day in any place where goodness lays its head and generosity fills the heart."William Forde:September 12th, 2015.
