Although the coming of a New Age has been spoken of since the 1960’s it has taken a lot time to arrive. However, just as a birth is generally heralded by pain and discomfort, the current turbulence and disruption of our times are reflections of a new beginning.
The tumult and travail are not warnings of the end of times, as Revelation would suggest, but of the long-anticipated, dawning of our new Golden Age. It is up to all of us to make this happen.
Dream and create our better world now.
A Difficult, Painful Birth
“Why” is the best question you can ask,
for its answers always take you to new levels of meaning.
“Why am I here?” is probably the most important question
you can ask, for it is the most profound.
So why have you chosen to be on the Earth at this time?
It is not an easy time for the whole world is, it seems, in upheaval.
There is violence, and intolerance,
and bigotry in a wide variety of forms.
These things are not new, but this is a critical time,
because it is a catalyst to bringing forth,
the world of Peace and Love, that we desire.
Lessons are not easily learned till we have direct experience,
of the ill-effects of “wrong” action.
God so loved the world that… Itheshe made it a paradise…
made it perfect for our needs,
and our learning.
Now is the time to act decisively to protect this planet,
from pollution, desecration,
and from rapid climate change.
There is the promise of a bright future,
filled with Light, and Love, and plenty,
but we must bring it into being.
We are midwives helping our planet
through a difficult, painful birth.
But from this pain, and suffering,
comes understanding and appreciation,
for the miraculous world that is ours.
It is not a world for rapacious exploitation…
It is, instead, a world for rapturous exploration…
So wonder at the miracles of life,
in this tiny segment, of our marvellous, cosmic… Universe.
So be it.
[This poem was written/scribed in 2016. I have struggled to find the right inspiration to select a poem for this latest blog, until I felt drawn to this one. This was a little surprising as it seemed to end abruptly, and in posting it I have had to do some re-writing.
Let’s however keep things in perspective, as we are living in a world where Donald Trump can be talked about as deserving to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
This shows how true it is that God/ the Cosmos / Itheshe has a sense of humour, and how urgent it is for us all to be centred, to be strong, and to act according to our beliefs and our wisdom, with compassion and Love.]
