AHAU Altar stone (detail) by Deb Anthony.


I Am Ahau,
I Am that I Am,
Inexhaustible supply of love,
sourcing infinitely in all worlds,
the seed of solar mastery
containing the stellar hologram of your return,
I am the Sun's love made visible as you.
In Ecstatic ascent, I spread solar wings,
awakening in you the immensity of a love,
that joins all things in the joyful dance of light.

Oh, Lux Corona,
luminous trinity made visible,
simply identify with my light, my power, my wisdom, my love,
and so accept your self as I Am, unconditionally!

To dance in the light of the Great Central Sun,
follow the ecstasy and bliss
that I AM, as you.
In divine fusion we become the dove of the ascension
on its homeward journey.
Feel the pulse of the language of light.
Be the one who stands as the love,
thus sounding the tone
that ignites the consciousness of others.

I Am, that I Am.
In this wisdom, you already embody the light
of a hundred Suns.
Shine forth the truth, the power of wholeness,
child of the Sun!

I Am Ahau,
luminous diamond of pure solar consciousness!
Let each facet of your being be crystal clear,
reflecting the joy of love's perfect presence
in beauty, joy and power.
I Am the effulgent bliss of solar harmony,
sweet serenade of the cosmic symphony to its Source.
I Am the taste of love's ambrosial nectar,
pouring forth through all of Creation,
as billions of stars forming the radiant body of the cosmic dancer,
spinning universes through time and space.
I Am the revelation of truth,
soaring at light speed within the elegant resonance of stillness.
I Am the garden of the heart's true delight
revealed within the splendor of the solar lord.
I Am Ahau, the golden ecstatic one.
I Am yourself -- there is no other!

6 AHAU by D.Rourke & T.Wild


At last you have departed and gone to the Unseen.
What marvelous route did you take from this world?

Beating your wings and feathers,
you broke free from this cage.
Rising up to the sky
you attained the world of the soul.
You were a prized falcon trapped by an Old Woman.
Then you heard the drummer's call
and flew beyond space and time.

As a lovesick nightingale, you flew among the owls.
Then came the scent of the rosegarden
and you flew off to meet the Rose.

The wine of this fleeting world
caused your head to ache.
Finally you joined the tavern of Eternity.
Like an arrow, you sped from the bow
and went straight for the bull's eye of bliss.

This phantom world gave you false signs
But you turned from the illusion
and journeyed to the land of truth.

You are now the Sun -
what need have you for a crown?
You have vanished from this world -
what need have you to tie your robe?

I've heard that you can barely see your soul.
But why look at all? -
yours is now the Soul of Souls!

O heart, what a wonderful bird you are.
Seeking divine heights,
Flapping your wings,
you smashed the pointed spears of your enemy.

The flowers flee from Autumn, but not you -
You are the fearless rose
that grows amidst the freezing wind.

Pouring down like the rain of heaven
you fell upon the rooftop of this world.
Then you ran in every direction
and escaped through the drain spout . . .

Now the words are over
and the pain they bring is gone.
Now you have gone to rest
in the arms of the Beloved.

During its five-year mission, it will examine the sun's magnetic field and also provide a better understanding of the role the sun plays in Earth's atmospheric chemistry and climate. Since launch, engineers have been conducting testing and verification of the spacecraft’s components.
