Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at the 5th edition of Carpe Diem's Theme Week. Last month I wasn't in the opportunity to create the Theme Week as planned, because of the research I had to do for our Europe Ginko, but this month I have time (and inspiration) to make this Theme Week. Of course I will create a new exclusive CDHK e-book after this Theme Week. By participating in this Theme Week you give me permissions to use your haiku in our new exclusive Theme Week CDHK e-book. Please email me if you love to participate, but don't want your haiku used.
This month our Theme Week is about "Ascension" and in this introductory episode I love to tell you a little bit more about ascension, but let me first give you our Theme Week logo for this Theme Week:
|Logo Theme Week "Ascension"
I found a beautiful poem by John Donne, founder of the Metaphysical Poets (which included also, among others, George Herbert and Andrew Marvell). This poem is titled Ascension and it's a Christian vision on Ascension.
Joy at the uprising of this Sun, and Son,
Ye whose true tears, or tribulation
Have purely wash’d, or burnt your drossy clay.
Behold, the Highest, parting hence away,
Lightens the dark clouds, which He treads upon;
Nor doth he by ascending show alone,
But first He, and He first enters the way.
O strong Ram, which hast batter’d heaven for me!
Mild lamb, which with Thy Blood hast mark’d the path!
Bright Torch, which shinest, that I the way may see!
O, with Thy own Blood quench Thy own just wrath;
And if Thy Holy Spirit my Muse did raise,
Deign at my hands this crown of prayer and praise
In this Theme Week we will encounter several ascended masters, all wise people how already entered a new dimension, maybe you know a few of them, because a lot of people have an ascended master as their guardian angel.
cherish and comfort me when I am sad,
... real angels do
