With all the “craziness” that is going on in our beautiful world it is a challenge to remain peaceful and in the moment. It is perhaps asking too much of people, to embrace the words of “The Planet of Peace” which was the subject of my first blog, without a stepping-stone. It could be too big a leap.
So I am posting this poem for that purpose, and to publish a more current poem as most of the poems I have published here have been ones written five or more years ago. This poem was written at the end of November, 2016.
The purpose remains however to raise the spiritual functioning of our planet and to produce as a by-product, a “Planet of Peace”.
At Peace in an Age of Chaos
This is an age of chaos… a time of upheaval.
It is a time of intensified suffering.
Incredible as it may seem this is good!
Perhaps this is hard to believe when one looks at what is happening in Aleppo,
where civilian populations are indiscriminately bombed,
and hospitals and medical facilities…
(Yes, unbelievably this is true)…
are deliberately targeted.
These are acts of “war crime” which can certainly seen
as acts of “evil”.
However, these evil acts are for our own good too.
We are being woken from our slumber.
For too long, we have been going through the motions.
It is time to awaken and to stir…
it is time to “fight”for peace.
These evil acts are rousing us…
calling for us to care about the world,
and the suffering of others.
Do not be discouraged by the evil-doers,
for then they will have won.
Do not be disillusioned and think that the world is beyond hope.
Everything is happening at the right time and place.
You are in the right place…
at exactly the right time.
You are here to make this world better.
You are here to bring peace…
and then joy and love, to this world.
The peace of the Universe is in your hands…
for you are at the centre of your universe.
Do not lose faith in the future.
God is behind all actions, even all this suffering.
Little one, you are being called to awaken.
Little one it is time to take action…
to help this world move forwards into peace.
It has been said that if you want to have peace and/or love…
then you must be… peace and love.
If everything is happening at the right time in the right way…
then you must embrace this understanding…
and be at peace.
If there is nothing “wrong” then there is nothing to stop you being peaceful.
All this trauma and travail is happening to bring peace.
So embrace this process.
Be happy about this process…
(whilst always being mindful of, and compassionate to the suffering of the “victims”)…
for better days are ahead.
There is no reason for you not to be peaceful “now”.
So be here in this moment, now.
Be grateful for your situation… and the unfolding divine plan.
All is well.
So be at peace, little one.
Find someone to help today.
Cultivate appreciation of all the things that bless your existence.
Cultivate gratitude and pass your calm appreciation on to others.
Now is not the time for doubt.
Now is the time for resolute determination…
to see only good…
and to remind yourself to be here… now…
in this joyous… peaceful… moment.
Support those in need and ask your government to do more.
Expect more… Demand more, but peacefully.
Trust in the process…
for we are taking a big step forward.
Go with God. Be your real… God-self.
Lots of love to you and all humanity.
(P.S. If you are wondering about the use of the phrase “little one” and are a little disconcerted by it, you may be reassured or intrigued to know that I was a little uncomfortable about the expression the first time I wrote it.
I too am a “little one”, but it is time for the little ones to pool their energies and love to make our world “big”.)
In love and light,
