Angels, We All Have Them So Act Like It

No matter what you are or what you do, 

there is an Angel right for you. 

No matter who you hate, or who you love

we all share angels up above,

so act like it! 

damn it!

I love to talk Angels.  For, they are everywhere. Mine spoke to me once when I was 24 years of age.  I was in a car accident and just before my 1963 VW bug was smashed by a hot rod tank, I felt arms around me and a voice that spoke into my left ear: "It's going to be alright."

I imagine the next time I hear that voice I'll meet her, for she has remained silently in the background since. 

So, let's talk Angels. 



Peace on earth and goodwill to all...  yes, easier said than done, that is, until you add in the one ingredient that could accomplish such a thing?   Angels. 


Why Angels?  you ask!  Well, they are the one common spiritual thing in us all.   That's right, from Jews, to Muslims, to Pagans, to Buddhist, to Erudite Scholars, we all recognize the angels.  

 
The Jews  seem to have the oldest writings on angels written around three-thousand years ago with the three angels that visited Abraham in in Genesis 18: 1-5.  Who were these masked crusaders?  I'm not sure, but it is funny that Abraham is the father of not only the Jewish faith, but the Christian and Muslim faiths.  Hmmmm, can you say Hedge-Your-Bets boys-and-girls?  But I digress, this is a loving, Esoteric Daily post for world peace. 


In the New Testament there are two angels named, Gabriel, who announces to Mary that she will bear a son who will be the promised Messiah (Luke 1: 26 - 38), and Michael, who fights against the Devil (Jude 9; Revelation 12:7).  Both angels had already been named in the Jewish book. 

Then there are the Islamist who's Quran is said to have been transmitted by Gabriel (Jibril) in chapter 2 verse 97.  Yes, the same angel who announced to Mary that she would bear the Messiah,  met up with Mohammad in the desert to give him the Quran.
 
And let's not forget the Buddhist, for my favorite Buddhist Reformist Monk, Nichiren Daishonin, writes of "Heavenly Messengers who have been with one since birth...."   


Although, less obvious, there are angels in Zoroastrianism/Hinduism symbol with its spread wings, and of course with the New Age/Paganism, we see angels in mind, body, and spirit of us all. 


Plato believed that between human beings and the gods were intermediate beings called 'daimons' who could inspire human thoughts and actions. 


So you see, angels are as common all spiritual life, no matter the belief system.  So, let's stop fighting and listen to them.  As I say whenever possible, "We are all in this together, so act like it!"

Come on: all angels are naked!  Gosh, get your mind out of the gutter.
