Aftermath of a Tropical Disturbance…

We are still mourning the loss of ‘family’ some weeks ago…

The sadness came about as a consequence of anger. The root of that, a subtle reality that many ought reflect upon… the family revolved around one person …Real CommUnity does not have a leader. Thus when that one’s rage shook the pillars of peace, it was inevitable that the end had come. And with it the abuse shouted hither and yon…

Once again the same terrible sword has come down on our ears and into the peaceful hearth we present. But this declaration has a finality to it ‘…they’ decided to leave; to return [to Domenica] …the chorus singing of empty promises and lies they were tricked into believing…!

Did these empty words also apply to EdenHope? Or was it also a lie?’ Then why did he turn on Ruth too, heaping epithets like ‘queen of privilege’ at her! I asked why he didn’t just ask these questions of me?

The flames gathered, and the fire roared. This time I could only say, quietly, this is no place for anger. I was speaking for all East of Eden even though I was once again alone.

The whole of this sad event – too much to relate in greater detail – was also propitious, having brought to light a bouquet of unexpected consequences. These have also enabled us to proceed more expeditiously.

The new world is still tender; not yet strong enough to completely separate from the old  We who know how to protect it must gather into its new dimension only what is sustainable – anger is not! What is needed …will be unequivocally clear by its very own Nature. There have been many threats until now, some still persist …but none can withstand the inexorable…

Rather than fill this page with a much-too-long history, let it just be said that the daybreak of reason has led to further refreshing epiphanies; they can all be explored in the words:  “…not by bread alone!” or: “…gather yourselves!”

And so we set about putting tragedy behind us …as well to birth the new hope that rises. We do so now with greater leverage, and more Love than we ever thought possible.

Reflection, though, is what I wish to share …so let me offer one now…

The world into which we are born …is a world we are called upon to serve. It comprises all that are part of it …none lesser, none greater …each being simply another detail expressing the Dream of Love. We did not come here to be served…! [Forgive us for ever having thought that the pleasures we encountered were ‘purpose’ and not ‘consequence’…!]

One stands at the center of Light …and sees into every corner of subtle reality that abound therein.

So, now, let us look carefully upon every ‘gathering’ of man in the world today. It is especially compelling as this is the time of ‘gathering’ long foretold by ancient wisdom. No matter whether it be a gathering of nation, of church, of school, of organization  …or even family! one sees that distinct [and terrible] indicator of the failure we have wrought within these precincts. It is the inevitable presence of a ‘leader’! Thus have each of these gatherings become ‘gangs’ …not CommUnities.

Only those that serve Great Spirit heed the Laws of Creation, of Nature… the rest is disservice…

Yes, the image of self at the bottom of the lake …is that of Narcissus. The greater expectations we could have expressed were always available …we just dismissed them …and finally didn’t even give a damn…!

Now one is bereft…

Thus we turn to our sacred task, annealed once more in the chamber of drama. Each of us must bear the collective burden …or we cannot find ‘the way’. What great theater it makes! …and such gratitude do we feel when, looked at this way, the tragic consequences of our historic volition to self-interest and collective indifference …no longer has the power to drown us in despair, only disservice fails…

Our hope henceforth? That every obstacle to unconditional love be rejected …and so may we all find Peace

Aho!
