We have entered the Winter Solstice when our Mother Earth tilts her head once again toward Father Sun in her yearly cycle around our Star. Light has begun to increase as the days grow longer in anticipation of Spring. But this will be no ordinary Spring, just as it is being no ordinary Winter. It’s snowing in West Texas and New Mexico even as I write this post and after a long drought in those parts. The Mississippi River has been drying up due to a severe lack of ice melt and rain in the northern states. The river’s been too shallow for some of its ordinary boat and barge traffic. It isn’t expected to rise much as the current snow and rain fall up-river doesn’t appear to be adequate enough to make a huge difference. Changes will be forced upon our transport systems if the river dries up altogether . . . but she won’t.
Weather patterns all over the globe have changed drastically. The Earth’s magnetic poles are shifting. Ice caps are melting fast and I wonder if it’s not in anticipation of a correction underway in the wobble of the Earth’s axis, in which event their colossal frozen weight will no longer be needed to compensate for the wobble. As I said, this will be no ordinary Winter, nor Spring. Is the planet perhaps moving through a renewal process back to being a a tropical garden of Eden once again. It could well be so. You see, all of Creation is in the loving and care-full hands of the Creator.
A species in danger of extinction, man sees a dying world through his myopic view and failing vision. His view is after his own survival and his vision is not of a New Earth but of an old world passing away along with the old man that created it atop the living, breathing soil of Gaia. How fragile does his world of concrete prove to be when Her layered crust quakes. There is little if any sense of right-expectancy in the hearts of human being the world over because man knows deep down inside that he has wronged and raped his Mother; that the world which he has built on her back rests upon a bed of sand, the shifting sand of monetary greed, rather than the solid bedrock of truth and generosity.
But wake up, O Man! Turn around! For a Golden Age is at hand. Earth is not dying, my friends. Oh no, she is rather coming alive with renewal, and her awakening process is creating quite a stir on all her continents and throughout the fabric of her kingdoms, all the way from her misty atmosphere above down through her watery oceans to her molten core. She stirs and stretches, yawns and breathes deeply as she greets the New Day, the New Age, the Age of Aquarius.
Aqua, water! The first of the Four Forces of Creation—water, air, earth and fire—and they come in that order of dominance, always working in concert together even as each one takes a turn at the leading role for its season. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall—all come and go on cue as the planet cycles through the seasons in Her solar orbit.
First the water washes in at the beginning of a new creative cycle, and the air blows in right behind it, overlapping the water cycle. Our neighbors along the East Coast got a wallop of these two forces not long ago. The tropical winds of Hurricane Sandy brought the tidal waters of the Atlantic ocean to and over the eastern shores of America, and the water has not ceased falling from the sky, again driven by the air currents of the trade winds and jet stream. Rain, rain and more rain greets the New Year here in these southern parts of Louisiana and all across the South from California to Florida—snow storms across the North from Washington state to Main and the New York harbors. Lots of water. An appropriate way to begin the year of our Lord 2013 and the Age of Aquarius.
After the cold water splash in the face, the warm air of Spring will call forth the green grass, the leaf buds, and the fragrant flowers out of the Earth. And after their grand show, Summer will bring the fire of Sol to return the flaming, falling foliage back to the ground to seed and fertilize the soil for the next Spring. What a dance to behold between the water, the air, the earth and the fire of Creation.
O Man, wake up and open your eyes to see the New Day! Put aside your fear and your rage, your wars and your poverty, your greed and avarice and your isolated insanity. Let there be love in your heart. Let there be light in your eyes. Let there be friendship between the brothers and sisters of your global community. Behold, all things are being made new. Be thou made new as well, whole and holy. A Golden Age dawns and with it a New Heaven refreshes and reseeds consciousness from above and a New Earth is waiting to be born out of it here below—and you have the privilege of experiencing the dance and playing a part in the magic of Creation. What a grand day to be alive and in the midst of it all!
Open up your heart and let your spirit, the Spirit of God, move upon the face of these troubled flood waters. Open wide your mouth and sing your creative command to them, even as you joined with your Creator in the Beginning when the Morning Stars sang together and the Sons of God shouted for joy: “Be still! Let there be Light!” Be the light of your world.
Be love. Be loved.
