I realised it’s time to tell you about this beautiful flower, actually two flowers, that we created our final 88th essence in Bali earlier this year. They are two versions of the Blue Lotus Lily in the essence is called the Gate of Heaven. A fitting name for the end of a journey, a place that all humanity is destined to arrive at, if desired.
From our first essence, Royal Welcome, to the final Gate of Heaven, each one map our journey home, our real home that awaits every person if we desire to humble ourselves to embark on such adventure.
It’s taken this length of time (from March to now) to tell you about this essence because of the gift of its potent qualities and message. Actually, it stopped me in my tracks, so much so I couldn't continue another step until I addressed the issues that it so lovingly pointed out.
What hit me was the question that it posed that was connected to every little nook and cranny in my life. The question contained a weighty singular word – SINCERITY. For this word challenges every wall and mask, every addiction I’ve ever created in an attempt to survive my life. And now I’ve come to a confronting place, that if I am really going to survive, all these walls MUST come down.
If I can sum up in a single word what affords him the ability to arrive at such a destination is the quality of his SINCERITY. (According to Laws of the Universe, when we pass we don’t simply front up to the pearly gates and answer a few questions posed from St Peter, and then pass into a beautiful place as angels. No, we have to work our way there by increasing our love and removing our errors in love.) For it is his sincerity and his desire for love, for truth, for humility, for use of his will, for his service, for his curiosity that carries him and attracts the finest and sincerest teachers to show him the way.
I heartily recommend these books if you desire to know more about our life as a human, because through example, he guides us so elegantly to the essential truths about how to live our life prior and post physical death – I really should say passing, because there is no such thing as death.
This answers many questions as to why things have not been progressing as I would have liked. It’s because I’ve been luke warm in my attempts, full of fear of failure and of success. It’s easier to sit back complaining and blaming
This is why I have stopped teaching and put so much on hold with One Garden, because I’ve had to attend to some really important personal issues that were not in harmony with the sincerity of One Garden’s offerings. It’s been a time of tidying up and questioning. I was shown the difference and importance of emotional, experiential, knowledge versus intellectual information. Each flower of One Garden offers new ways and resources for us to explore. This takes time and patience to experiment and validate its authenticity. So much of our life is full of glossy marketing, swaying us to give up our free will and hand over to blind faith believing that it will do something, when it doesn't (a lesson from essence of Divine Free Will). I don’t want One Garden Essences to be part of this system.
To reflect this more tangibly, we are working on a project to assist you with this and when it’s more evolved, I will let you know more about it. Hopefully soon.
One Garden has been a very personal journey, challenging me every step of the way and has revealed many of my addictions. That is what I have come to know about love, real love. At this stage I am still unsure who has been guiding One Garden Essences into existence, but whoever they are, I know for sure they know a lot about Divine Truth and Divine Love and what is required by us to become loving humans. They certainly have guided me to awesome resources for soul development. And even if my soul has only grown a little from the experience, I feel deeply grateful for what I have learned and the essential change in direction that is required for my development and liberation.
From Royal Welcome to the Gate of Heaven, the 88 essences offer an amazing adventure for the soul.
I want to thank my husband Graeme and dear friends Daniela and Nicole for their love and friendship.
God bless and may all of us take up the invitation that the Gate of Heaven offers, to sincerely desire to open to God’s absolute truth and allow the offerings of Her Love that waits to flow into our soul, to change us forever.
Much love, Christiana
