We are all in this together
as the bombs drop
As mothers in affluent America
pay their grown children’s Rehab fees
as ones in Vancouver
bury their 14 year old daughters,
…dealers in Columbia
give up the trade.
Pledging to the children
of tomorrows villages,
they form a new government
with no more cocaine.
Behind the scenes
groups of elders and healers meet
in ancient ceremony
repairing the broken threads
Have we forgotten who we are?
There are sacred elders everywhere…
of all ages.
We witness the legacies of the gap
Hell on earth
the screams of children
ricochet across the wailing of Mothers
and deeply moaning menfolk…
Pain. Misery. Hopelessness.
The Earth cries out to the heavens it seems.
and we wonder
Is anyone listening?
in her deepest longing for our peace
has held all that contaminates the beauty of our universe
all the sickness of body mind and soul
so that we may each remove our light
from those patterns of hell.
It is not the earth herself that holds these patterns
but she gives them form
and I have often wondered why.
I think, they are here so we can heal them.
The elders of this land
where I am writing
say that every breath we leave behind is a piece of us.
Like a comet streaming through time I imagine it.
Our tail of thoughts and deeds lit up behind us as we orbit through our journey of life.
As above so below, just as the stardust formed our DNA patterns
perhaps our thoughts and deeds form the patterns of reality
yet to be expressed.
So many elders tell us that our today is made of our yesterdays.
Our ancestors shaped our awareness and our accessibility to life,
just as we today are shaping the future
of our grandchildren.
We need to heal some of the realities we have created.
I believe these patterns can only exist where we feed them,
whether with our fears or our joys.
Just like stocks in a stock market
if nobody buys it
the company ceases to exist.
If no one buys cocaine
there is no cocaine trafficking.
If men respect women
there is no rape culture.
We collectively feed the realities that are present on earth
and we need to choose what we feed.
We need to get our personal light out of the addiction
the racism, the hatred, the sickness
wherever we have our light in misery and fear
we need to get it out
without denying it.
It is a balancing act best described by the Temperance card, number 14 in the Tarot.
There are many realms co-existing on this planet
and it would be nice if we could lift every being out of the bad ones
and focus on making good ones
We all have everything within us, every potential.
From the worst depravity a human being can enact to the kindest act of wisdom.
We are made of all of it.
We can choose where we operate from, with every breath.
Courage, honesty, integrity, wisdom, love, truth and respect
can be found in every realm if we look for it.
These are the precious stones that offer foothold
under the turbulent waters
of the rivers we must sometimes cross.
That I think, is how we jump realities.
The problem has been as I see it
we keep trying to start over
revolution to revolution
but we keep building on the same principals..
We carry our sicknesses with us.
We are here
in whatever circumstances we are in
to get our light out of the gap
and back into the love.
We are all in this together.
To heal humanity
we need to heal the places of hell
wherever we find ourselves in them.
