THE RHYTHMS OF THE STARS, AND THE RHYTHMS OF OUR MOTHER EARTH ARE THE SACRED RHYTHMS OF OUR VERY SPIRITUAL BEING.
Suspended in the velvet blackness of space, our precious Mother Earth, our Gaia, is a beacon of life and hope and conscious purpose in the Cosmic emptiness. Its beauty is staggering. It is a jewel set amidst the stars and other planets. It is our physical and, for the time being, our spiritual home. We are connected to Her, we belong to Her, in so many ways we are Her.
Whether astrology works or not, and I suspect that it is all far more complicated than astrologers would have it; and is intimately linked with the ONENESS of the ALL, which transcends our human-based mathematics, geometry and logic. Our present being and our immediate and ultimate destinies are connected with everything, are in fact in a real, profound and universal sense EVERYTHING. Everything is connected and so everything affects everything else to a greater or lesser degree. At the same time, we must also take into account all the rhythms of Gaia, of the planet that is our home. Even if our planet Earth was mere dead geology, we will only thrive on it when we live as if it really is alive and in a real sense conscious. It is only a small step to understanding that it is indeed alive and conscious and deeply aware of us, and is deeply aware what we do to each other and what we do to our ‘it’ to our Gaia, to our Mother Earth.
The spiritual awakening of humanity is undoubtedly occurring now in our time. We are so aware now of how we are all globally connected, and we are equally aware now of our responsibilities towards our environment, to all the plants and living creatures: to our Mother Earth, to our Holy Gaia. This is the sacred and mystical threshold of our Pilgrimage of the Ages: our recognising that we are responsible for our planet, and for all that dwell with us on our planet. Our spiritual unfoldment, the unfoldment of our ultimate spiritual destiny – that which gives true meaning to our existence – is found within our relationship with our Mother earth, and is revealed in this profoundly spiritual and sacred time when at last we reach out to our Mother Earth, not to grasp its treasures, but to become ONE with our Mother Earth and to be part of our Mother Earth’s, our planet’s, our Holy Gaia’s healing. Pointers to our spiritual destiny is to be found in our recognition at last of our responsibility towards our Mother Earth. And then will at last come the time when that recognition of culpability and responsibility will give way to that moment when we no longer seek to redress the balance with regards to how we despoiled our Mother Earth, doing so in order to save ourselves, but will instead address our culpability and responsibility out of LOVE for our Mother Earth, our Holy Gaia. True, wholesome, and holy change comes only through love. And many are already there, and over time more shall follow. Thus shall we and our beautiful planet be healed, and thus shall we truly be riding the sacred and mystical way to the stars that are our spiritual destiny. It is not just the environment and our planet that we must save. It is ourselves. And our salvation will come through our love for ALL – that ALL including our Mother Earth. Thus is our spiritual and ultimately sacred awakening and unfolding made manifest.
If we really are influenced
By the rhythms of the stars,
We must accept that also
We are influenced by the rhythms
Of our Mother Earth.
