When We Get Past This . . .

There’s still so much that both science and religion don’t know, and I think it’s more honest to acknowledge this and say, “You know, we really don’t understand how this (or that) happened. Everything’s a theory at this point.” If any of us ever do stumble upon ‘the truth,’ it will probably be the physicists with a spiritual leaning. Even now, they’ve discovered we consist of vibrating atoms that are made up of mostly empty space. We’re not really ‘solids.’ Isn’t that cool? Is the empty space where our souls reside? I don’t know, but why not tell our children the truth and encourage them to (ad)venture forth and discover?

I think we’re spiritual beings with the potential for insight and connections so wonderful that the next hundred years of discoveries could boggle our minds–if we can plow through the current wave of darkness sweeping over us. It’s as if a heavy, dark boot is trying to smother our world, engendering fear and pressing the ‘heart’ out of us. We need to remember: It is only a boot. It is nothing compared to the Light and Love emanating from the heavens, inspiring the light-sparks in our souls.

When we get past this, we will look back and shake our heads, because we have mostly lived like animals, with ‘survival of the fittest’ our credo. In our future, I can see a planet where the hopes and dreams of a woman holding her sick child somewhere in Africa are as important to me as mine are. I mean, why am I more important than her? Why are you? Why should her child not have a safe environment, a decent home, clean water and good food to grow a healthy mind and body?

Maybe ‘survival of the fittest’ was a reaction to this darkness, but we’ve nearly destroyed our beautiful world in so living. Our future is ripe with possibility to transcend the mess we’ve made, to make the next evolutionary leap. We probably still won’t know everything (that would be boring, anyway), but maybe we’ll work out how to get along, how to create communities of loving environments, with family and friends and access to education, health care and meaningful work. Maybe our condition won’t be measured by our material wealth, but by our spiritual wealth.

Now, that’s a dream of the heart worth focusing on.

Our Need for the Divine Feminine and the Great Dark Cloud, A Guest Post from Michael Brine

By Michael Brine

We have created an unbalanced world because we allow rule by dominant male energy, which so often ignores the nurturing and compassionate energy of feminine energy and the Divine Feminine.We have also given our power to some of the most divisive religions imaginable. By all means, enjoy your own religious/spiritual beliefs but when we attempt to impose these beliefs on others–often creating war in doing so–we cross a line we should not cross. Each soul born on earth is born to choose his or her own walk. We only have to look at the Middle East to see this sad situation at its worst. However, it also exists within our own societies and grows less subtle each day.

Regarding the issue of living in a harmonious word, we also need ask ourselves if it is necessary to kill other life forms to satisfy our appetites. As I leave these ideas with you, I include below an important message from The Aquarian Passion Play.

Thank you ,

The Planetary Deadline  from The Aquarian Passion Play

“If we could look down from outer space upon the Earth with clairvoyant vision we would see the auric field of the planet as a murky ball of seething mist and fog. We might stand aghast at beholding this great dark cloud of subtle matter, which would evidence itself to be of a density and thickness that indicated not only impenetrability but also those conditions that are unfavourable to life and which make all things appear unclear and distorted.

Thus it would be appreciated that there is a pressing need for change and global decontamination, for preparation for all those upon Earth who would be ready to weather well the approaching purificatory storm and, moreover, who would take advantage of it. The effects of the cumulative and harmful thought-patterns and attitudes of humanity are pervasive worldwide, and are sorely evident today not only in the lives of mankind, but also upon the physical planet.

Man has generally treated the Earth with gross disrespect for far too long. He has regarded his home together with its mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms most carelessly, and has repeatedly demonstrated an attitude of negligence that expresses the erroneous view that the resources of the planet are for his own selfish use and exploitation alone. Humanity, as a whole, has completely overlooked the fact that Mother Earth – Gaia – is a spiritual being, engaged in her own evolutionary development, and lovingly endeavours to provide a perfectly balanced environment for the peaceful and harmonious existence of multifarious life-forms, including human beings.”

The Tea Party, Alien Invasions and Miracles

A friend came by today and we visited for half an hour or so. I love him, but we look at the world through two lenses about as different as they could be. It is funny because while he’s been listening and reading online about a second, impending revolutionary war, I have been writing about making peace with ourselves and others and about us humans acknowledging we are all God’s children, equal in our Creator’s eyes and, for that reason alone, deserving of equal respect. While he’s been reading about possible alien invasions, I have been reading about great beings who are coming from higher realms to our aid. We did agree that whatever it is that is happening around the world (with governments and businesses failing) has a higher purpose and that some kind of change is coming.

But what change will it be? Will it be fear-based or love-based? If most of us give in to fear, it will get ugly out there. My friend believes if Tea Party candidates are not elected in November, rioting will start. At this point, I believe the solutions to our problems probably are not going to come from a government that is already imploding on itself. Though I can’t fathom the amounts of money borrowed by our government, I am certain it was done in an attempt to save our economic system and the government, and to stop the talk of collapse, revolution and armed resistance. I was thinking of my 12th grade history teacher while making oatmeal tonight, the teacher who taught us that Hitler got his toehold in Germany during an economic depression. That same teacher explained that after the war, every country involved measured the destruction of life and infrastructure and vowed, ‘Never again!’

My friend sides with the Republican candidate in our state on every issue. Basically, shut down the federal government, including the EPA, Social Security and the Department of Education. Stop unreasonable taxation, which tends to be an issue for the well-to-do more than for the working poor. The Republican candidate says, ‘No mercy,’ for people like me who break and can no longer work and others who have no education and end up homeless. Her beliefs are born of her own status; she cannot even see those who are hurting and hungry and homeless. She simply doesn’t care. Would she have the ‘least of these’ used in experiments, jailed, or killed? That is what Hitler did. Has he been reborn in our world, waiting for the rising sense of rage to reach a climax?

I admit, I believed President Obama would lead our country out of the quagmire created by President Bush, but doing the best he can with polarized political parties hasn’t been effective. My friend believes the election of a black man as president has brought about the separatist attitudes of some Americans. Really? Still? Will racism never die? If there is another planet where people are not judged by the color of their skin, or lifestyle or religion, I want to go. I believe the profound problems of our country (created by a white president, by the way) were already too far-reaching. I will grant I could be wrong about my beliefs, but I am not wrong about following my heart.

My heart says, The time for war is over. The time for peace is now. The time for rage has become the time to be healed. The time for suspicion and name-calling is old and rotten; the time for mutual respect is born. Our Creator made our universe, including the world we occupy and gave life to everything upon it. We humans are not doing so well on our own. We need an intervention on a level that is far beyond anything we know now or can imagine. We need miracles and I, for one, am expecting them.

Can you Dance—Between the Ages? A Guest Post by Michael Brine

By Michael Brine

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who are hungry and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower

“Humanity sits poised at a precipice; in front of us is an undeterminable pathway, behind us is the shell of a decaying age. We are at the crossroads of our experience; already actions, as well as thinking processes are being set which will determine the nature of a new and extraordinary destiny. Our survival as a thinking species and, as well all living things upon the Earth, now hangs in the mercy of the Winds of Change—Winds that no longer blow quiet warnings; rather they carry with them a somewhat foreboding message and always deliver a swift altering of our contrived reality through extremely volatile occurrences.”
Dr. Robert Ghost Wolf

We have arrived on this Planet at a point of transition between two Ages. We are in the process of leaving the dark age we have just moved through, over nearly the last 6000 years – referred to by some as the Yuga cycle – and into a more enlightened Age. It is this transition that the Mayan Calendar, the Hopis and other indigenous peoples are aware of that has so many concerned as to the meaning of it all. It is not a single date, as in December 21st, 2012, focused on by so much of the mass media with its gloom and doom scenarios.

These are the closing days of the past cycle and what we are seeing (and indeed will see more of) is what has been referred to as a “Cleansing” period. Putting it bluntly – getting rid of the garbage we have accumulated over the past 6000 years – since the time of the earliest Egyptian Pharaohs. The immediate months to come will be difficult and unsettling, to say the least as this ‘Cleansing’ takes place. We will all indeed need to be strong in our resolve to see it through. It won’t be easy.

As many will recognise, I have written on this theme before. However, I am bringing it back into focus to also highlight the uselessness of war and hate in any form – whether in our angry thoughts towards another or where we as a country take up arms against another country – for this kind of negativity begets negativity. In saying this I am not suggesting we should not defend ourselves when attacked, as in WWII by Hitler. I am however, pointing the finger, as an example, at Canada’s sad involvement in Afghanistan. Up until we were dragged into this by our southern neighbour’s government at the time —  for its own hidden reasons by the way — we were highly respected by the International Community as Peace Keepers.

Let’s take a wider view of how we have been manipulated as societies and cultures across the world by giving our power away to Patriarchal [male] control during this past Age. What is sadly missing is the presence of the female energy as a balancing element within our cultures and societies. We have been controlled by what I have referred to as ‘little boys’ who haven’t grown up and are still romping in the school yard as bullies. North Korea is a prime example at this time! The Taliban are another sad example and in the latter case, also of how religious extremism – another negative element that has corrupted us over centuries – has produced these little bullies.

The future we are now moving towards must see this imbalance corrected. The concept of Earth as Divine Mother or the Mother Goddess was central to the earliest cultures, far predating the masculine religions that emerged in this passing age. The Greeks gave us the name Gaia for Earth – a feminine noun. It shares the root Ge, with the Earth sciences of Geology and Geography. To the Greeks and other ancients, science and theology were not opposed to each other — just different ways of looking at the one whole. However, and unfortunately, during this passing Age, science and religion became separated – the material versus the ethereal, and our ‘little boys’ got into the act. The rest is a very sad history.

All life — human and indeed all life forms — come from the One source, whatever name you choose to give It. Its message is Love and Compassion. In order for Love and Compassion to become a true reality in the world around us, it has to start with us individually. If, as we have, continue to allow ourselves to be separated from each other by false male inspired ‘teachings’ and these pathetic ‘little boys’ known as ‘rulers,’ the sad results of this, even now, lie depressingly before us.

It is time for us all to wake up and see where we have allowed ourselves to be led. Enough is enough! To realise that by working together in communities, not separated by fences and lines on a map, maybe — just maybe — we can begin to be inspired to join hands with all who share this world with us and create the Dance of Love!

As Teilhard De Chardin wrote,
“Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, humankind will have discovered fire.”

Thank you for reading this. I have simply put into words what many others are also feeling and expressing across these manmade boundaries of ‘separation.’
