“Our lives are the story of how we remember.
It is the dance that was woven into the fabric of our being from the beginning. The presence of the Great Mystery is always with us. I have only to turn my face toward it, and it is there—as a voice beneath the sound of the pale grey waves crashing on the shore, as a touch of the unseen on the back of my neck that makes me pause and turn as I cut carrots on my kitchen counter, as a kiss that lingers as I come up out of dreams in the midst of dark mornings.”~The Dance, Oriah Mountain Dreamer
“Myth is the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos pour into human cultural manifestation”-Joseph Campbell Hero with a thousand faces
“Sophia, lift us up the Tree of Life,
like drunken sap. Honey dredger, consume us within your ecstatic lightning snakes of love, traversing the rainbow staff of light twined round the tree of the cadeceus of our spine, to explode as mystical sight Divine.....Ain Sophia our....limitless light....Ain Sophia Aur”
- Ariel Spilsbury
"The truth rises like the morning sun birthing dew drops into misty veils
that enchant us all into looking
beyond the mind’s eyes of dual limitation and into the wonder of boundless vastness dropping duality
embracing everything with possibility
a heart-centered reality
where the mind can intertwine with the heart and dream into a limitless potentiality. A dream where our wings will take us damsely dancing like dragonflies on the softness of warm ocean breezes."
– The Rose and the Stone
"We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall.
The Voice of the Hidden Waterfall -TS Elliot
The Grail Rider
Return to the Heart of the Wild Divine Sophia
By Inaiya Ray
For as long as I can remember I have been living with the burning question inside of me: “How may I best serve this life?" This story was born from a life-altering experience – an encounter with the Feminine aspect of the Divine Sophia during a Shamanic Journey in 2003. During the ceremony, the frequency and voltage that came through my body was like a wild fire that ruthlessly consumed all falsities of Self. The Divine Mother Gaia, turned me inside out and then infused me with an all- embracing light that suspended me in Grace, while my body lay face down in the dirt and utterly still for over nine hours. Throughout the entire experience, I remained lucidly alert while I received a multi-dimensional download of epic proportions that spanned the journey of the Divine Masculine and Feminine as they incarnated throughout time and through the various Mystical cultures of this Earth. I was shown clearly that humanity has reached an endpoint in its exploration of polarity and separation consciousness.
The Grail Rider is a true memoir of a series of life changing events that were set into motion after this encounter with the Divine Mother. Originally, I set out to find my Divine Soul mate in order to fulfill a “Divine Marriage” prophesized by a Shaman friend. Ultimately, I was led on an inner alchemical journey of betrayal, heartbreak, death and resurrection. Finally, the Divine Mother transmitted to me that it is through "The Inner Marriage" through Sacred Union within one’s own Divine/human Self that life on Earth will be restored back to pristine and radiant wholeness on every level.
The Grail Rider invites the reader to travel on a multi-dimensional adventure in pursuit of the Mythic Grail of one’s own Holy Self. The trail leads from the ley lines of Glastonbury to the French Pyrenees, and the little town of, St. Marie Del La Mer in Provence. It follows the Mediterranean coast to Spain, Italy and Greece, to trace and re-discover the richly encoded wisdom of the past and the ever-present now. The story offers code-opening, timeless transmissions from the Sacred Feminine, as she rises in her empowered presence and passion to usher in the Golden Aage of the New Earth.
This holographic love story is steeped in synchronicity, grounded in humanity and humour, and sprinkled with an ongoing dose of hipness! It invites readers to hang out with the Cultural Creatives, Mystics andVisionary artists of our time. The journey leads to magical festivals, forgotten Fairy lands and spiritually charged sacred sites, where the ancient and new converge. At this unique time as humanity and Earth awaken and return to their true origin of Oneness, The Voice of the Hidden Waterfall is an energetically alive, transformational treasure map, designed to ignite and catalyze the reader’s own spiritual and alchemical awakening. It is written as an eternal friendship offering for all those Hero’s and Heroine’s that also dare to live the question: “How may I best serve this life?"
