In the ancient scriptures of India, it is taught that God, the Supreme, has five functions; the powers of creation, maintenance, dissolution, concealment, and the bestowal of Grace. It is this fifth power that is of the utmost importance at this time in the evolution of Consciousness, because without the inner flame being rekindled by the fire of God, the individual Soul would not be able to trace its steps back through lifetimes of karmic impressions and have even half a prayer of attaining a true state of enlightenment.

I have a spiritual Master. In Sanskrit, the word is Guru, which translates to “the power within that leads us from the darkness of ignorance to the light of Truth.”

I met my Guru in Tokyo in 1985 through a series of synchronistic events that culminated in my participating in a meditation intensive during which we were formally initiated through an utterly mysterious process called Shaktipat (lit: “the descent of Grace”) into the deepest levels of consciousness a human being is capable of experiencing and which heralded the first day of the rest of my life.

Prior to this date with divine destiny, to say that I had lived a nonconformist life would not have been an overstatement. But after receiving Shaktipat, the degree of unconditional surrender demanded of me in order to be able to surf rather than be tossed about by the tsunami of my life and higher purpose was unparalleled.  No arena of worldly life was left unexamined or untouched by the ruthlessly alchemizing fires of purification, extending even to the most natural of biological events – childbirth. I had two children, each conceived within three weeks of my Guru’s two visits to Tokyo while I was living in Japan. Did my husband and I engage in the necessary baby-making activities? Absolutely. Was there more going on than met the eye as far as the timing and carrying to term of these pregnancies? Unquestionably. And each test, each challenge, and every subsequent breakthrough, has led me one step closer to my goal in this lifetime; fully embodied Self Realization and full empowerment to lead others to it.

“I will to will Thy Will” is the ultimate healer’s prayer and these few words actually sum up quite succinctly the essence of the spiritual journey; pointing both to the goal of all practice and to the means by which that goal is attained.  Not until all traces of individuality have been obliterated and the wave of our egoic limited self-identity fully merged into the infinite Ocean of Consciousness, are we truly free to be open and clear vessels whose every word, thought and action channels healing and transformation. My own journey is still a work in progress. But my commitment, conviction, and devotion, are steadfast and intact. And I can truthfully say, to quote the last lines of a poem I penned in 1993, that:

“At the feet of my Guru

I That I Am

And at the feet of my Guru

that is enough.”

Elizabeth Urabe
As an artist, Elizabeth R. Urabe has always only had one goal: to translate the invisible energies of Absolute Truth into tangible form using abstract design, color, and poetic imagery, so that an ever-increasing number of people might have more direct access to the inner realms of human existence. In early 1995, with no art training whatsoever, she began spontaneously to draw the pictures now known as Urabe Spirit Art and to date has channeled more than 750 designs, each one perfect, whole, and complete, exactly as it is. No thought is ever involved in the birthing process and Elizabeth has always referred to her role as that of a "spiritual midwife" rather than the creator of this extraordinary body of work. And remarkably, despite incredible complexity of design and detail, no single picture has ever taken longer than one week to complete. In 2011, intuitively entering a picture birthed in 1995 titled Divine Unity, Elizabeth was one of three first-place winners of the unprecedented American Batik Design Competition, organized by (then) the Ambassador to the US from the Indonesian embassy in Washington DC, Dr. Dino Patti Djalal. As a result, she was awarded a three-week tour of some of the most prominent batik and fashion companies in Indonesia and now has contacts in Jakarta who have created breathtakingly beautiful silk shawls for ladies and one of a kind original shirts for men; each piece endowed with the living 4000-year-old history of Indonesia's perfected batik techniques and the essence of Urabe Spirit Art as both the energetic and design inspiration. Early in 2016, in answer to the global craze for coloring books, Elizabeth rose to the challenge and in a matter of months, self-published four books; three coloring books for adults, each with original art and contemplative poetry, and a highly interactive book for adults and children to engage in together. The first adult book, Color Me Freedom, was immediately rendered fully into German, and there are French, Spanish, and Russian versions available with the translations of the Artist Introduction and dedication pages. A full Arabic language translation is also soon to be released. With these books, Elizabeth has taken the very essence of her art and offered it in a compact, affordable and interactive format that is especially attractive at this time, when global challenges are both accelerating and intensifying and the need for awakening, healing, and transformational reintegration is more imperative than ever. In Elizabeth's words: " Urabe Spirit Art, in whatever myriad forms it may take, is one of the most powerful reflections of Source energies available to us at this point in the evolution of Consciousness. We are at a crossroads where the fate of our planet and life as we know it may very well depend on the willingness of each individual to embrace the entire spectrum of human emotion and commit to the kind of transformation that only real spiritual growth can offer. There is no longer any middle ground and as long as we (still) believe that Love has an opposite, we are (still) living in fear." It is time for us to say an unequivocal yes to destiny and to take our rightful places as warriors of the Spirit. Let us join in this pure and noble vision, knowing that - together - there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
