THIS COMING TIME MARKS OUR COMING OF AGE. ONCE WE WERE PETITIONERS OF GOD. NOW, AT LAST, WE ENTER INTO PARTNERSHIP WITH GOD. SUCH IS THE PROFOUND SPIRITUAL AND SACRED MEANING OF OUR TIME. HUMANITY’S STORY IS TOUCHED BY THESE DEEPLY MYSTICAL NODAL MOMENTS WHEN OUR CONSCIOUSNESS, FOREVER EMBEDDED IN THE SPIRITUAL, SHIFTS AND FURTHER AWAKENS. ONLY WHEN IN PARTNERSHIP WITH EACH OTHER, AND WITH OUR MOTHER EARTH, OUR HOLY GAIA, CAN TRUE SPIRITUAL HEALING OF OUR LIVES, OF OUR COMMUNITIES, AND OF COURSE OF OUR MOTHER EARTH, BE REALISED.
A landscape is bathed in golden sunlight. We see a hillside and trees. All are suffused with the golden sunlight of our sun, that is the spiritual and holy gift of our star. We feel the warmth of love and we experience the truth that all of our Mother Earth, our precious Gaia, is sacred to us and indeed is sacred to the heavens. We feel also just how vital is our Earth’s environment to us as humanity and indeed to all of God’s creation. We abuse it at our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual peril. This is our sacred home, and it is here, blessed by Gaia and the sun that our spiritual awakening unfolds. We live on a beautiful Mother Earth, nurtured by the bounty of She we call Gaia. There can be no wonder as to why we humans were drawn to a sense of the spiritual and of the sacred. For our Mother Earth is incomparably beautiful and nurtures us as we incarnate. No wonder, too, that we attempted to systematize into religion and creed, our sense of the spirit and sacredness in our planet, indeed in the environment our planet offers us. But now we must transcend religion and creed, now we must seek the very source of that which is sacred: our universe, our planet, and ourselves. Our spiritual quest must see us transcend the mere rules of our creeds, and live the sacred flame, the eternal spirit that is each one of us. Our destiny is the stars themselves. But only if those stars are aflame and are mystically bright within our minds and hearts.
This is the awakening time for us, our truly profound and sacred spiritual awakening from spiritual childhood into spiritual adolescence. And spiritual adulthood is already there for us on the horizon of our sacred pilgrimage. As we take responsibility for ourselves as humankind, and responsibility for ourselves and everyone else, and as we at last learn to acknowledge that we must take spiritual and material responsibility for our Mother Earth, for our Holy Gaia, then our great awakening comes upon us.
