My message of Love for Two Thousand and Seventeen / Eighteen / Nineteen and ‘Umpteen’…

Is that humans have to fast-forward and evolve

And really get this ‘Self-Love’ thing moving

In order to save the planet and the future of all man/womankind

As our housekeeping skills are falling way behind

Coz really there is no ‘out there‘, there is only ‘within

And this is the real reason

For why there’s actually NO SUCH THING as separation, (it’s an illusion!)

For we are all made from the same stardust, atoms and carbon molecules

And therefore what one does to the planet, one also does unto ones ‘own self’, you fools

For if you spit, piss, pollute, throw rubbish on, destroy, over develop, or exploit the earth and Her animals

One mindlessly spits, pisses, pollutes, throws rubbish on, destroys, exploits ones own self…

Because we are all in this together

As there is nowhere else in outer-space to go

And the same rule applies to other people

With both those whom one does, or doesn’t know

For what one does unto another, (either publicly or secretly)

One does unto ones OWN brother/ sister, father/ mother, son/ daughter, human family

It’s an interpersonal Dharmic, karmic, cosmic symmetry

Therefore Self-Love is absolutely key!

So as not to waste precious time taking things personally

But really focus on getting to grips with and better understand

How the concept of survival and self-love go hand in hand

For without it, there is no sustainable reality, no world peace, no safety, sanctuary, or Homeland

While with every new second, this world’s multi-billion procreative population ever-expands

For without self-love there is only ignorance and immaturity

Fear, deception and insecurity

A cognitive inability to move past competition, greed and jealousy

Which lets face it, is kind of creepy

Plus time is speeding up as the Universe also expands in accordance with Einstein’s theory of relativity

So we have no choice now but to ‘open’

To one’s divine human potential

To love, accept, forgive, live and let live, fully

For we are each of us Angels, with only one wing

And the only way one can learn to fly, or even just get by

Is literally by embracing

Each and every one another as one would like to be embraced oneself

A shared ‘Response Ability’ to awaken

To an awareness of the presence of ‘Love’

For although Love is the opposite of fear

What is ‘all-encompassing’ – can have no opposite!

I shall attempt to make this concept more clear

It’s an immense source of divine unconditional Love as an interconnected composite

For oneself, each other, the disabled, the young, the elderly and the LGBT community

Irrespective of spiritual path, faith, or origin of country

It’s available for both rich and poor, black and brown, yellow, pink and white alike

Whether male or female, child or adult

Including the animal, mineral and vegetable kingdoms; and the entire natural environment

For all life forms are from the same Source of Divine Love, its just the outer envelope that’s different

And so this amazing, beautiful, miraculous Planet we live upon

Deserves our very best

So let us share now in the natural perfection

And lay ignorance to rest

Lets refocus our attention

By tapping into a divine infinite intelligence

Love and gratitude is the enlightened way

Lets us make a difference, lets start today!

September in the Park

 

I place two shiny new conkers in your hands

Commenting on how many leaves are gathering now under the trees, fallen to the ground

We count the grazing geese upon the green, (there’s more than fifty!)

And remark upon a fearless squirrel darting across our path with boundless energy

I let down our ponytails so we can feel the Autumn breeze in our hair

With the sound of the fountain spray upon the lake in the air

We stop to say ‘Hello‘ to a majestic white swan upon the pond who holds its neck so proudly

And over the hump back bridge we say ‘Hi’ to a crow changing branches in a tree

Whose slick black feathers shine iridescently

Then we see two little girls chasing each other around a playground

They laugh and shout: ‘you can’t catch me, you can’t catch me…’

On the way back we wave at our reflections in the window and pause briefly

Before I comb and braid your hair into a plait so very neatly

Elixir of Love

My fears are not that I may cease to be

Rooted, steadfast, embodied in a world of physicality

And without fears too, for the deserted drying

Of heartfelt words, or inspiration

Forever drawn to all my time spent, in dedication

For no greater pleasure do I feel, may’st I apply

Whilst chained, imprisoned, in this dimension

My only freedom, flight of soul, needs must express

Such a deep felt love, for all humanity

A curious quest, I cannot explain

Impression’d on high from an invisible plane

So sublime, that poetic craft

Is not required; for metre, or to rhyme

Unless such craft imply, inject, ripened hearts

With the jewel of ‘inner meaning’

Inner truth infused with love

All pervading and genuine

Connecting precious principals beyond mere words

Which seek to make whole thus human kind

In complete align

So that intelligent insights into our complex universe

May penetrate not only the heart, but also the skin and the mind

Whereupon tinsel-gilded illusions

May fall away into nothingness

Instead replaced by a delicacy and a gentleness

A refinement of the senses

Through an indiscriminate understanding

That the elixir of love

Is wisdom plus integrity

And connects us all

To every single living being, or entity.

There’s still a lot of pressure from society upon women

The kind that prevents her from becoming 

Anything more than a ‘second-class citizen’ 

More than ‘the procurer of the genetic-lineage, in procreative-service’

More than a glamorous profile picture, wall-paper, calendar, screen-saver, accessory

More than carer, cook, au pair, affair, or nanny

Often the weight of relationship-responsibility 

Prevents one from fulfilling ones true-vocational destiny 

From uncovering that hidden, latent potential, deep within every individual

Denies the opportunity to discover and follow what that actually might be? 

And so it can become a bit-of-a-struggle

To balance relationship, kids, career, leisure, pleasure, ambition, and maybe also survival

Perhaps also a battle to fight for ones right to an education if ones family

Is not well-off, supportive or stable

Maybe one lives in or is from a Muslim or third world country?

Where one may suddenly find oneself given away as a child, or teenage bride

By ones own family

And so modern-day opportunities are put aside

Instead centuries of tradition, dogma, stigma or religious-doctrine

Is thrust upon, prevented from:

Falling in Love’ and following ones heart, for example

Limited by having ones life-path or life-partner pre-chosen

Designed to promote subservience, to know ones place, and fit in

Rather than being able to feel: ‘secure within ones own-skin

Through empowerment, bliss, and freedom

Disallowed from making ones own wrong-choices too

On the experiential path of self-knowledge, growth and understanding

From maturing, growing out of old illusions in ones own time, gracefully

For even now, in-this-day-and-age, there still persists a super-massive infringement of personal-Liberty

Even from other women 

 

Earth’s Prayer

The Garden of Eden - unknown artist

Our Mother/Father Planet, who art our heavenly garden

Sacred hallowed-ground be thy name

Thy ‘Kingdom of Eden’ become

Thy ‘Divine Will‘ be done

On Earth, as this also is ‘Heaven’

Whom giveth this day, and everyday, our daily bread

And whom forgiveth our trespasses, unconditionally

So that we may learn to forgive those, who trespass against us

And lead ourselves not into temptation

But deliver ourselves from our own greedy, narcissistic, addictive, insecure egos

For thine is the Kingdom of ‘One Love’

The power and the glory of one-world united in Gratitude

Forever and ever, Amen.

The Second Coming

The second coming is not any one man, or one woman

It is the explosion of collective consciousness

When the hearts of men and women are opened and awakened

When the ability to respond (response-able) is greater than to react

When closing the door in separateness doesn’t sit well anymore

When one realises that what one does to another

Actually one does unto one’s own Self

For when one rises above the arrogance of the ego

One realises that in a Universe of infinite possibilities

Developing compassion means no longer taking anything as personal

For now the ‘I’ is no longer alone, it is a valuable member of the collect-i-ve

And the more people on the Planet there are

The more weird, wonderful and surreal

Everyone’s projections / reflections are gonna get

One is going to have no choice but to open to one’s divine human potential

Because the pain of staying the same will be greater than that of change

It is humanity’s destiny to evolve

As a species

Beyond the comfort zone

To awaken to the God / Goddess Self

To open to ones inner Buddha, Allah, Shiva/Shakti, Jehova, Krishna, Christ

Inspirational role models who demonstrated by example

How to work together to heal the self, each other, the Planet

How to redefine beliefs, change perspective, forgo judgments

Allow for emotional, psychological and spiritual evolution

Love and accept the unlovable within the self and each other

Forgiveness, everyday!

For no one person is free until we all are

And consciousness is a choice

Like a Yes or a No

As simple as binary

To a one from a zero

From an off to an On

Like a chain of dominoes

A viral infection

Of enlightenment

A colossal global cognition

Of conscious understanding integrated into Being

Integrated into our everyday choices

Training the ego, the mind and the heart

To align as one

Takes time and practice

But it can and shall be done

Spiritual Growth

Growing-up means:

Learning to take responsibility

For ones feelings

This is what ‘Spiritual Growth’ is

Evolving one’s emotions beyond ‘The Self’

By expanding one’s capacity to extend: self-worth and self-love

For ultimately all forms of abuse are ‘Self-Abuse’

All forms of betrayal are ‘Self-betrayal’

All forms of sabotage are ‘Self-sabotage’

Therefore Loving ‘thy neighbour’ is actually a form of Self-love

Means withdrawing the projection of one’s shadow

Deflecting the negative emotions of others, and the mindset of narrow

And not indulging, or engaging in, someone else’s lack of self-love

Means extending ‘Forgiveness and compassion’ in the face of anger, revenge and cruelty

Bitterness, self-righteousness, jealousy, regret and insecurity

As forgiveness is not for the benefit of the other person

It is for the benefit of ones own self

As it keeps one free

From buying into, or taking on board, another persons dis-ease, or negativity

Which is merely the absence of ‘self-love’ projected outwardly

Means turning the other cheek, walking away, rising above

Staying grounded, focused, heart-centred in the energetic vibration of Love

Personified, magnified, intensified, amplified

And is what this world needs a whole lot more of
