The Mercury Writers' Guild Blog
Welcome to the Guild of God Mercury—the hub where TSL writers connect and cooperate on writing projects for the Great White Brotherhood. We’re glad you’re here. Check out the sections below to find your areas of interest and get started!
The Record of Your Gratitude
A journal. It’s an odd thing to be grateful for. And yet, it is journals like William Bradford’s that share the secrets of life. Journals contain stories of lessons learned, results of roads less traveled, and conclusions of decisions that some would probably not make again.
Follow YOUR Writing Process
Writing can’t be done without going through certain stages. All writers go through their own unique writing processes before they make their final drafts. Usually, writers start with choosing topics and brainstorming, and then they may outline their papers, and compose sentences and paragraphs to make a rough draft. After they make a rough draft, writers may begin revising their work by adding more sentences, or removing sentences. Writers may then edit their rough draft by changing words and sentences that are grammatically incorrect or inappropriate for a topic
Practicing Show, Don’t Tell
Summer is a great time to explore our creativity and stretch our writing skills. We can get out into the sun and nature, smell the flowers, daydream under the clouds, and make use of the long summer days to chase adventure and catch up on our big writing projects.
America’s Ambassador of Goodwill

From Cowboy Boots to Flip Flops
By Carol Brenner
Going from Montana’s Big Sky Country with mountains rising to nearly 13,000 feet and a population of not much more than one million to a state lying at sea level with a population of 21.5 million began as an adventurous road trip.
How and Why to Use Active Voice
By Marshall Haley
As writers, we hope to keep readers’ attention long enough to convey our message, right? Well, there’s a simple tool to do that. It’s called active voice.
Dear God, I Have Something to Ask
By Heidi Fuentes
God permeates us with His Light all the time, 24/7, perennially since the beginning of our existence in the matter universe. We have used this Light for the good, but also for the bad; hence here we are still experiencing life’s continuum. In our path of initiation we must also reach out to God through our Higher Self and ask for His guidance.
A Soul’s Praise to Her Creator
by Eija Paatero
When there was no hope
You saved me
When I could not forgive myself
You forgave me
When I was angry at you or feared you
You stripped me of those lies
When I was thinking about the futility of my life
You blew those thoughts away
When I missed a partner by my side
You showed me the treasures of my soul
Secret of the Himalayas
By Carol Brenner
High in the Himalayas hidden from false eyes
Upon the peaks where glistens the brilliance of the sun
A Master and his Chelas form a circle, meditating on the One
Unknown to the masses, impervious to the cold
This band of brothers have no need for comforts of home
Generated from within both heat and light enfold
A shining shield—Look! Behold
A Gopi’s Lament
By Carol Brenner
I peeked inside my heart today
Was Krishna hiding there?
I wasn’t sure I’d find Him
(Not that He doesn’t care)
He plays hide and seek with me
I’m not sure where He goes
But when He’s gone a shadow falls
And then I feel alone
I speak of the lineage of the initiates of Mercury—those who have fashioned their skill by the sword and the pen, those who have acquainted themselves with the mind of God and have claimed that mind, who have come from a lineage that antedates myself. Truly, there is a lineage of those who have been called Hermes, the name being the title of an office. Thus, there is a descent of those whose craft has been to set forth in writing and in other forms of communication that which is Real, that which is unreal, that which is necessary information to the body politic round the world that they might know and understand the way to go….
There are those whom I myself have trained under my mantle as God Mercury. We who bear the shield and the armour of the Sun must therefore go up and down the nations of the earth and call out those who have the original communication skills, who practiced those skills in ancient times and on ancient continents and are willing to once again take the lead in the dissemination of the Truth and in exposing error. You must come forward! For the Truth must be made known….
