The poem titled The Pilgrim consists of six stanzas the first third and fifth stanzas have four lines each and the second fourth and sixth stanzas have one line each. The photograph I choose for this reflection is one of my own personal pilgrimage back to my homeland Ireland where I visited my grandparent’s grave.  This was me at my grandparent’s grave on my mother’s side of the family…We are all pilgrims on a journey to heaven…I will now discuss Akiane’s poem titled The Pilgrim…Iambic pentameter is alive and well in many of Akiane’s poems which adds to the beauty and lyrical nature of Akiane’s three dimensional prose.  I would say multidimensional prose.  For those of us who are spiritual we understand there are many dimensions in our universe including not limited to our lovely planet called Earth.  We are spiritual as well as physical and many people understand that human beings are multidimensional.  For example many people experience a feeling of “Deja Vu” like they had been there before or done that thing before when they have not in this life time or they have no prior recollection of being in that place.  For those who travel extensively as I have I have experienced this many times.  I am open to the possibility of reincarnation for example this is a belief that is popular in India and other parts of the world.   I say I believe in this possibility because so many human beings have died before their time before they completed their tasks or purposes on earth.  Also in my studies of sacred scriptures the scriptures suggest the possibility of reincarnation when you study the transfiguration of the true Jesus Christ.  We are all pilgrims on earth.  Before I discuss this poem by Akiane I digress into a discussion on the scriptures found in St. Matthew Chapter 17 page 19 of the New Testament found in Douay – Rheims holy bible.  I will quote this whole passage here with my comments in parenthesis to establish my thoughts on reincarnation.  As human beings we are all works of art and we are all entitled to our opinions and reflections.  I consider myself nothing but a work of art in the eyes of the God of my understanding the God of life who has written my name and many other names in the book of life never to be blotted out by mortal man.  Chapter 17 of Matthew New Testament Douay – Rheims – Christ’s Transfiguration verses 1-26  “And after six days, Jesus taketh unto him Peter and James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart.  And he was transfigured before them.  And his face did shine as the sun: and his garments became white as snow.  And behold there appeared to them Moses and Elias talking with him.  And Peter answering, said to Jesus:  Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.  And as he was yet speaking, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them, And lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying:  This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.  Hear ye him.” –  [ My comments here.  Notice in the scriptures how the word pride is always associated with the devil and his apostate hosts.  When the God of life speaks about his beloved son Jesus Christ God says he is “well pleased”.  The word pride has always been associated with the devil and his minions from hell itself.]  I continue quoting this lovely transfiguration found in Matthew Chapter 17 Douay – Rheims:  “And the disciples hearing, fell upon their face and were very much afraid.  And Jesus came and touched them and said to them:  Arise, and fear not.  And they lifting up their eyes saw no one but only Jesus.  And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying:  Tell the vision to no man till the Son of man be risen from the dead.  And his disciples asked him, saying:  Why then do the scribes say that Elias must come first?  But he answering, said to them:  Elias indeed shall come and restore all things.  [My comments here:  this is where the scriptures suggest the possibility of reincarnation. study the next line in this chapter as follows:]  “But I say to you that Elias is already come:  and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they had a mind.  [This line suggests strongly that  Elias had already come which we know to be true from the Old Testament.  I continue with the verses:]  “So also the Son of man shall suffer also from them.”  [My comments here:  Jesus was prophesying his own cruel and merciless torturous death.]  “Then the disciples understood, that he had spoken to them of John the Baptist.”  [My comments here:  this passage fascinates me because could it be possible then that John the Baptist was a reincarnation of the old testament prophet Elias??? – I make no claim to this though I am open to the possibility that reincarnation is a very real thing.  Every reader is entitled to their opinions and views and I do not have to be right on a thing.  As a work of art I am free to express my thoughts on the scriptures like others do.  I do not claim to be an authority on a thing.  I find this passage very fascinating with a strong suggestion that reincarnation does occur and has occurred for centuries.  After all the God of life sent prophets among mankind over the Centuries who were treated like garbage and killed before their time. I continue now with quoting this wonderful passage all of Matthew chapter 17 new testament Douay – Rheims]  “And when he was come to the multitude, there came to him a man falling down on his knees before him, saying:  Lord, have pity on my son, for he is a lunatic and suffereth much:  for he falleth often into the fire and often into the water.  And I brought him to thy disciples and they could not cure him.  Then Jesus answered and said:  O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you?  How long shall I suffer you?  Bring him hither to me.  And Jesus rebuked him.  And the devil went out of him: and the child was cured from that hour.” [My comments here: there are too many children today affected by the demonic wicked influences surrounding our lost world and this causes all of heaven to shed many mystical tears. I continue with this wonderful mystical scriptural passage on the Transfiguration of the true Jesus Christ – Matthew Chapter 17 all verses Douay – Rheims] “Then came the disciples to Jesus secretly and said:  Why could not we cast him out?  Jesus said to them:  Because of your unbelief.  For, amen I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove from hence hither and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible for you.  But this kind is not cast out but by prayer and fasting.” [My comments here: the reason so many exorcisms fail is because consent of the will of the person affected is often compromised in particular in the cases of full demonic possessions and in cases of demonic obsessions.  The best person to drive out the devil is the victim themselves.  If they can pray and fast and in a spirit of sincere repentance beg the God of life in the name of the true Jesus Christ to drive out the devil then the devil can be driven out.  Sadly many children and young adults and older adults are obsessed and or possessed by demons from hell and as such even with the consent of their will still need help from a team of exorcists to drive out the devil.  Only, those with pure hearts free from all sin and vice who pray and fast and are authentically holy can be unto the devil a terror of demons.  The devil and his demons flee in the presence of authentic holy Christians.  Authentic Christians have nothing to fear as the devil is a coward a lier and a deceiver and a murderer.  That is all the devil ever was and is to this day since before genesis and onwards.  To those affected by the demonic prayer and fasting is the only way to drive out certain kinds of devils as Jesus himself states here in Matthew Chapter 17.  I continue with this wonderful chapter.]  “And when they abode together in Galilee, Jesus said to them:  The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men.  And they shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.  And they were troubled exceedingly.” [My comments here:  Jesus prophesies his death and manner of death to his disciples who were naturally very troubled by this.  Our limited mortal minds are no match and are not equal to the creative genius of the God of life whose intelligence far surpasses the intelligence of mortal man including the wicked evil genius the devil himself whom the God of life created from the dawn of time and whom the God of life will crush at the heal of a woman whose name is Mary and mentioned in Genesis onwards.  Genesis chapter three verse fifteen describes how the devil shall be crushed as his reward for his diabolical pride.  I continue now with Matthew Chapter 17 in it’s entirety from Douay – Rheims.]  “And when they were come to Capharnaum, they that received the didrachmas came to Peter and said to him:  Doth not your master pay the didrachmas?  He said: Yes, and when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him saying:  What is thy opinion Simon? The kings of the earth, of whom do they receive tribute or custom?  Of their own children, or of strangers?” [My comments here: prior to reading this chapter further contemplate within yourself why does Jesus question Simon Peter in this manner? I continue with the remainder of Matthew chapter 17 Douay – Rheims]  “And he said: Of strangers.  Jesus said to him:  Then the children are free.” [My comments here:  Jesus says this because to attain heaven we adults must be child like not childish but child like.  Also, the passion and death of Jesus Christ was in large part for holy innocence found in holy innocent children.  Jesus obeyed his father in heaven the God of life unto death on a wicked druidic satanic cross with it’s four portals of hell it’s four corners representing the four corners of the earth and the four portals of hell.   Jesus allowed his death to occur as prophesied from Genesis onwards for holy innocent children.  Jesus himself was holy innocent and child like without sin.  Study the last of this fascinating chapter to learn more about the meaning of the words holy innocence.  Jesus goes on to say and I quote:]  “But that we may not scandalize them, go to the sea and cast in a hook: and that fish which shall first come up, take:  and when thou hast opened its mouth, thou shalt find a stater:  take that and give it to them for me and thee.” —- My comments here:  this ends the full chapter and verse of Matthew Chapter 17 Douay – Rheims.  Gosh when you study the trouble Peter had to go to obtain payment to cover the cost of entering Capharnaum one would say that the true Jesus Christ was mental that he was a mad man crazy not right in the head.  What I see is this:  Children are holy and innocent and pure and it is love of money not money in and of itself mind you but love of money that has contributed to the luciferian seduction of the nations which includes the destruction mass destruction of holy innocent children.  Jesus Christ took no part with the devil and his works so the payment had to come from a pure source a mystical source which with the help of heaven was procured in the craziest of ways.  Peter to his credit went to all that trouble for Jesus Christ and while one may wonder was Peter scratching his head or rubbing his brow in consternation?  I would say not simply because Peter obeyed Jesus Christ without questioning him.  Now we know that Peter sinned out of human weakness like so many of us myself included sin.  Peter later on denies Christ Thrice which Jesus Christ himself prophesied that Peter would do.  Peter himself had no idea he would do such a thing.  Great was the repentance of Peter when he fell and denied Christ thrice.  Great were his tears and repentance which makes the humility of Peter so profound and worthy of much contemplation and study in and of itself.  I love all of the disciples and I feel sad in my spirit for Judas Iscariot who was so blinded by his own love of money.  It was love of money that lead to Judas Iscariot betraying Jesus Christ for 30 pieces of silver as mentioned in Matthew chapter 26 verse 15.  Judas Iscariot despaired and committed suicide which is murder of the self a heinous crime against his own humanity for he despaired and lacked the same faith that Peter had.  Peter who denied Christ Thrice repented mightily from his heart and shed many tears and it was Peter’s sincere humility that saved his soul.  Judas Iscariot was filled with diabolical pride and it was this luciferian pride and love of money that led to the destruction of Judas Iscariot who sabotaged himself and destroyed himself in the end.  It has been said that Patrick of Ireland is set to replace Judas Iscariot on the day of contention as one of the leaders of the lost 12 tribes of Israel.  I make no claim to this and state clearly these are simply reflections and as such are mere opinions that I express as a work of art.  If it is true that Patrick of Ireland will be at one of the 12 gates of the mystical new Jerusalem not yet known to mankind then the cloud of witnesses would make up his tribe and this would be mostly holy innocent children who were systemically destroyed before their time.  This mystical gate will be both a gate and a wall and a sister as mentioned in King Solomon’s canticle of canticles a sister who is small and hath no breasts.  King Solomon’s canticle of canticles describes this sister.  I quote King Solomon’s canticle of canticles here:  “My sister is small and hath no breasts will she be a gate or a wall?  To make sense of what I say here I quote King Solomon’s Canticle of Canticles found on page 617 Chapter 8 verses 8 – 10  “Our sister is little, , and  hath no breasts.  What shall we do to our sister in the day when she is to be spoken to?”  [ my comments here:  to me the reader this talks about the day of contention the mystical new Jerusalem as well which is made up of 12 gates and 12 walls of the twelve lost tribes of Israel.  Lead by 11 of the original disciples of Jesus Christ and possibly Patrick of Ireland replacing lost Judas Iscariot. I continue with the rest of these mystical lines found in King Solomon’s Canticle of Canticles Chapter 8 page 617 of Douay – Rheims.] Verse 9  “If she be a wall, let us build upon it bulwarks of silver: if she be a door, let us join it together with boards of cedar.” [ My comments here: this is the sister I mention who is the cloud of witnesses the holy innocent children destroyed before their time who “hath no breasts”. I continue now with verse 10] “I am a wall: and my breasts are as a tower, since I am become in his presence as one finding peace.”  [My comments here:  I love King Solomon’s canticle of canticles as they are mystical multi – dimensional lyrical prose at it’s finest.  Here the sister, replies and says “I am a wall”.  There you have it the sister is a wall – a mystical wall of one of the lost twelve tribes of Israel destroyed before their time as holy innocent children.  The vineyard of mankind is mystical in nature it is made up of human beings physical people with eyes and ears and sacred bodies who are multi – dimensional spiritual as well as human.  The vineyard of authentic Christian nations were systemically destroyed via centuries of systemic abuse which culminated in the perfection of the dark arts of annihilating the nations found in wicked contraception and abortion on demand which are machinations of evil wickedness destroying nations as we speak. ]  Now back to Akiane’s poem titled The Pilgrim the first stanza opens with these lines “traveling within myself I feel like a journey”  I limit quotes to follow copyright guidelines that allow for limited quotes and to encourage the reader to purchase from Akiane this wonderful book to follow along.  Akiane’s poetry describes in a most excellent way how we as human beings are works of art.  We are all God’s works of art.  The second two lines of the first stanza are also very profound “my thoughts on immortality have enough of half turning” and the second stanza asks the question “but what is half of enough”.  I leave out the third and fourth stanzas and go on to the fifth stanza.  Akiane says in the opening lines of the fifth stanza “i need to sculpt myself out of crystalized honey so i can be lost again somewhere deep in clay”  I leave the rest of this stanza for you the reader to read from your own book purchased from Akiane.  This stanza does an excellent job of describing how all of humanity are made from clay we are from the dust created by the author of Life whose intelligence far surpasses mortal man’s intelligence.  As works of art from clay we can mold ourselves when we are old enough and as children we are formed and molded by our parents and societies who care for us.  I love the last sentence of this profound poem.  “as a pilgrim i keep awakening the last essence of me”.  So profound, I keep the i lowercase as Akiane has kept the i lowercase in her poems.  The lowercase i to me the reader represents the unborn child and born children who are the least among us.  The true Jesus Christ says in Matthew that what we do to the children who are the least of these we do to God himself.  Also Jesus reminds us in  Matthew that the little ones have holy angels who always see the face of God in heaven.  Jesus also warns mankind not to scandalize the least of these the holy innocent children.  Jesus describes how it is better that a milestone be tied around the necks of those who scandalize holy innocent children and they be drowned at the bottom of the sea than to cause the least of these to sin or to scandalize holy innocent children.  To make sense of what I say it is best to quote what Jesus says so I will do this now.  In Matthew Chapter 18 verses 1-10 found on page 20 of the new testament in Douay – Rheims.  I quote these verses here:  “At that hour, the disciples came to Jesus saying:  Who thinkest thou is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?  And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them, And said, Amen I say to you, unless you be converted and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.  And he that shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.  But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.  Woe to the world because of scandals.  For it must needs be that scandals come:  but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh.  And if thy hand or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off and cast if from thee.  It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire.  And if they eye, scandalize thee, pluck it out and cast it from thee.  It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.  See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you that their angels in  heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.”  [What Jesus is saying here is very serious we cannot harm holy innocent children and expect heaven to be our inheritance.  While Jesus is very severe in his speech such as suggesting one pluck their eye out and remove a hand or foot.  Yes this is very severe.  What Jesus is doing here is reminding mankind of the serious nature of crimes done to holy innocent children particularly crimes against their sacred humanity.  Child abuse in particular systemic child abuse is pure evil and wicked and those who harm children will not attain heaven.  Also those responsible for abortion on demand directly or indirectly and those responsible for contraception directly or indirectly as well as those responsible for heinous child abuse crimes directly or indirectly shall not attain heaven full stop.  Heaven is not for criminals heaven never was for criminals and those who harm holy innocent children shall not attain heaven.  For it is the children who make up the cloud of witnesses in heaven who shall testify against the wicked on the day of contention.  Authentic Christians though we may be few in number can rejoice knowing this.  The God of life will deal with the wicked on the day of contention.  So, to avoid the pitfall of hell fire praying and fasting is very effective and instead of resorting to plucking our eyes out or removing our limbs.  We must take what Jesus says very seriously and instead pray and fast and remove occasions of sin from our lives so as to avoid the many pitfalls surrounding mankind today.  Everlasting fires of hell exist and hell is real.  Many today forget this and many make pacts with the devil himself forgetting and not knowing how truly horribly wicked the devil and his apostate hosts truly is.  The devil is an evil genius.  Yet the devil is no match for the God of life who takes no part with the devil.  The devil is no match for the cloud of witnesses these holy innocent children destroyed in the dark.  The devil is no match for authentic Christians who understand well sacred scriptures and the sound doctrine found therein.  Authentic Christians cause the devil and his apostate hosts to flee in their presence and to tremble in holy fear of the Most High God of life.  For my unborn and born brothers and sisters systemically destroyed in the dark these reflections are for you.  These reflections are for all men and women living and gone before us who suffered systemic abuse and who falsely believe themselves to be bad or no good.  These reflections are for all adult survivors of systemic abuse and the fallout therein.  Respectfully submitted on their behalf by one from Dan who shall not be comforted for the children are no more and I shall not be comforted…As a thank you for reading this reflection…Enjoy my Irish Music Session on my YouTube Channel…Irish Music is a gift I received from my family who played Irish Music for Centuries passing the gift of music down from generation to generation…
