20 years of service as Shrine Keeper

It was 20 years now when i started Luntiang Aghama and in those years since I found the Shrine, I did not even work out to invite people to become members of the Shrine. It seems that other may think that Luntiang Aghama is not an organization at all since it has no members that actively share the duties and responsibilities of the Shrine. But in spite of that, the Shrine continue to exist and make mark to our community.

But why do the Shrine has no members?

For me personally, I do not know. I just do what i need to do as it’s shrine keeper. Let the Spirit answer this question and here is their response:

You as individual need not to become a member as you have not become separated from us. Membership are for those that been detached and separated from us, but you as our people never have been separated from us. The evidence of this statement is the life that you have. You continue to live and exist because the Divinity that is within you. What you only need to do is to ReMember us as your God. And your work as a Shrine Keeper and our Priest is to remind the people that they are the perfect manifestation of the Divine. You do this by sharing our teachings, performing public and private rituals, counseling and the work of healing. It is not your responsibility to make them believe as long as you do your work, and the duty of remembering is on their part. So just continue the work that you need to do.

When I meditate and ask the Spirit of Luntiang Aghama her self why you do not have members in your shrine, she said:

Our Shrine is not like any other church that makes followers. The Shrine does not let anyone just to follow the Light but instead the Shrine wants everyone that is within us becomes the light. People who will become part of Luntiang Aghama are not followers nor leaders, but they themselves becomes the Creator, Co Creator and Re Creator of Life. Remember the time when you talk to Tata Imaw, he said to you that as a ritual object, we might have an eye, ears, nose, mouth, body, hands and feet that been formed- but our function is spiritual and not in mundane. While you who are in the Mundane World and living a Spiritual Life, you will become a channel of our message that will remind the people of their true nature in this world that Life is a Gift of the Spirit so that your body can move and grow.

People now-a-days heavily rely on the worldly knowledge and information but have forgotten that all the answers to their questions are already available within themselves. Your role as a Shrine Keeper and our Priest is to help the people to reconnect themselves to their inner self and found their true nature that they may appreciate living their life to the fullest. It is not you as our Shrine Keeper will do this for them, they have to access it with their own selves through your guidance.

People may have forgotten us. But that does not mean that we do not exist. We exist all the time from the begining of time till eternity. We are the one that animates this universe, and we have the power to make people remember us. And people do remember the Divinity in their times of Need, and when it does we come and Bless them.
