Our Lady of Roses
upon a time in the Land of Knows Hill there was a Sacred
Temple. Oh my goodness, not a Temple that has four
walls and a door to step through to pray. This Temple
had no walls at all, just the open space of nature.
Why the interior of this Temple was a masterpiece. It had a way of changing
with each season which was such an amazing experience to behold.
It had different distinct rooms, again not rooms made by man, but rooms of
hills, valleys and open spaces.
As the people entered each room, they could not help but feel blessed and in
awe, experiencing the knowingness that there truly is something higher than
themselves. Oh how this comforted them on their Journey through Life.
The Temple was dedicated to the Divine Mother of Heaven and Earth.
Since the people knew she loved Roses, they named the Temple – Our
Lady of Roses.
It was perfectly made for Her. Many thought it must have been designed by the
Divine Mother Herself but others thought (and I tend to think so myself) that
it was commissioned from Heaven and built by the Angels to show how much she
is loved and adored, for it truly was a Heavenly Place on Earth.
How the people of Knows Hill would love to make the trek up the Hill to the
Temple to Pray, Give Thanks and be held in the warmth, comfort and nurturance
of Her Presence.
They knew how Life could get so busy and stressful with everyday
challenges. They could also sense when they were losing connection
with this Holy Place.
They would feel their lives not working when feelings of anger, sadness,
frustration, helplessness and when it got really bad – hopelessness.
So it truly was a healing experience to go to the Sacred Temple and to be enfolded
in its Beauty and Peacefulness.
Once entering into the Temple of Our Lady of Roses, they could kneel at the
ancient stone altars, some people even stretched out lying down on the larger
stones to soak up the energy of these sacred monuments. Others were able to
sit in the tall, luscious grasses next to a wild rose bush and be intoxicated
from the scent of these precious flowers. Some people would walk ever so gently
so as not to disturb the colorful mosaic of all the wild flowers that carpeted
the Temple, listening intently to the joyful singing choirs of birds and feeling
the warmth of the radiating sun on their shoulders.
everyone prayed differently in this Temple and it was
all perfect - no judgement here on how one is to pray.
After their visit to the Temple of Our Lady of Roses, they would walk down
the Hill having their hearts filled once more with Her Spirit.
Upon returning home the gifts of Compassion and Unconditional love poured forth
from their hearts to their family and friends allowing Harmony and Balance
to return once more.
How the people of Knows Hill had such Thankfulness and Appreciation for this
most precious Temple. Knowing the Divine Mother was so ever present to listen,
comfort and nurture them. They truly felt blessed.
