In the beginning, The One, made a melody, bidding his heavenly hosts, to create a great music. Out of the music, a vision of a globed light was formed in the void. The Globe was called EA.”
Home, EÄ is our home. Earth Sea and Sky, Cathedral of Life.
Enter the cathedral of earth sea and sky. Breath in and wonder at this precious life and the miracles all around. Living Cathedral of Earth Sea and Sky, enter in let its music fill your eyes.
The world was thrust into perpetual darkness, but when the stars shone down, the Children of the ONE awoke with starlight in their eyes, and something of that light remained there forever after.
All men awake under the same sun and dream under the same moon.
The world has changed. I see it in the water. I feel it in the Earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, For none now live who remember it.
The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Few can foresee whither their road will lead them, till they come to its end.’
Darkness must pass, a new day will come' and when the sun shines' it will shine out the clearer
A child's bedtime prayer by candle light: Light shine when all other lights have gone out Light hold back the shadow A mothers prayer as her son goes to war: Light, light, carry the light and take heart Heart hold back the shadows Light light to reach dawn you must cross the night Fight through shadow till daylight comes The boy, now a man's battle cry. Ride ride darkness before and behind Ride to the worlds ending Light light, ashes and darkness and night ride till the break of dawn
Minas Morgul 04:30
“May this be a light for you in dark places, when all other lights go out”. “We can only come to morning through the shadows”
Help me, I feel alone, I can't go on cos I'm falling Save me, I'm not strong, I'm all alone I keep falling, down Galadriel: I will carry you.
Here we are at then end of all things, I'm glad you are here with me
When our fire has burned the dark, and our final song is sung Distant shores will call us home and we'll be forever changed, forever changed”
