DAZE OF OUR LIVES-HARBINGER

WEATHER OR NOT IT IS CLEAR TO US, NO DOUBT THE UNIVERSE IS UNFOLDING AS IT SHOULD, YES, THE DAWNING OF THE AGE OF AQUARIUS…… I REMEMBER GOING TO THE AQUARIUS THEATER WITH MY BROTHER IN 1969 WHEN I WAS IN 9TH GRADE AND HE WAS STUDYING FOR ONE OF HIS PHD’s at UCLA. HE WAS A SCHOLASTIC OVER ACHIEVER AND ME BEING A LIBRA, I HAD TO BALANCE THAT OUT SO I ENDEAVORED TO BE A SEMI-EDUCATED UNDER ACHIEVER. ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, THAT HAS WORKED OUT PRETTY WELL.

IN ONE OF MY PREVIOUS POSTS I PREDICTED THAT ONLY A CATACLYSMIC EVENT WOULD UNITE OUR WORLD. THAT WAS BEFORE COVID- 19 aka “CORONA VIRUS” RAISED IT’S UGLY HEAD AND CROWN. WELL, WE GOT OUR CORONA / CATACLYSMIC EVENT BUT I STILL DO NOT SEE MUCH OF AN EFFORT TO UNIFY OUR WORLD. WE ARE NOT PUTTING ASIDE OR RESOLVING OUR PETTY NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL DIFFERENCES.

TIMES LIKE THIS MAGNIFY OUR NEED FOR INTROSPECTION AND REFLECTION. WHEN I SAW THE PRODUCTION OF “HAIR” IT WAS LIFE CHANGING EVEN FOR THIS 15 YEAR OLD KID. WHEN THE PEOPLE ON STAGE ASKED THE AUDIENCE TO STAND UP AND SING AND CLAP, I WAS THE FIRST PERSON IN THE AUDIENCE TO STAND UP. EVERYBODY ELSE EVENTUALLY JOINED IN………AND THAT IS MY POINT. EVENTUALLY, EVERYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WILL JOIN IN. THAT WAS MY FIRST MYSTICAL AND MAGICAL EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE. SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO HAVE MANY MYSTICAL AND MAGICAL EXPERIENCES THAT I INEVITABLY DRAW UPON TO GUIDE ME AND IT IS THOSE EXPERIENCES COUPLED WITH MANY VARIED RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCES THAT DEFINE ME. I DO NOT THINK OF MYSELF AS BEING UNIQUE. RATHER THAT ALL OF US INDIVIDUALLY ARE UNIQUE. I BELIEVE THAT WE ALL HAVE MYSTICAL, SPIRITUAL AND RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCES. SOME PEOPLE ARE PROFOUNDLY AFFECTED WHILE OTHERS JUST GLAZE RIGHT OVER THEIR EXPERIENCES AS IF IT WAS JUST A BLIP ON THEIR PERSONAL RADAR SCREEN. WE WRITE THE EXPERIENCE OFF AS JUST A COINCIDENCE OR DEJA VU’ OR THAT OUR MINDS WERE JUST PLAYING “TRICKS” ON US. I HAVE COME TO BELIEVE THAT “SOMETIMES” THOSE EXPERIENCES ARE ROAD SIGNS AND SIGNALS ALONG THE ROAD OF LIFE. LEARNING TO IDENTIFY THOSE SIGNS AS SUCH, COMES WITH TIME AND AGE. I HAVE HAD SOME WONDERFUL AND WISE ELDERS IN MY LIFE THAT WERE MY PERSONAL TEACHERS. THEY HAVE ALL PASSED ON DOWN THE LONG ROAD NOW. WHEN MY TIME COMES, I HOPE TO FOLLOW DOWN THAT SAME ROAD AND REUNITE WITH THEM.

SO HERE I AM , SITTING IN PARADISE, AND MY GREATEST DESIRE IS TO SOMEHOW HELP THE WORLD TO BE A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL OF OUR CHILDREN AND OUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN. SO WHY DO I EXPOSE MY THOUGHTS AND MYSELF TO THE WORLD AND OPEN MYSELF UP TO RIDICULE? IT IS BECAUSE MY GREATEST TEACHER TAUGHT ME THAT NO MATTER WHAT….. WE MUST DO WHAT WE INDIVIDUALLY BELIEVE IS “THE RIGHT THING” and “THE RIGHT THING” REQUIRES US TO ‘THINK FIRST’ AND “SPEAK AFTERWARDS’. ALSO, THAT GOD GAVE US 2 EARS AND ONE MOUTH BECAUSE HE WANTS US TO LISTEN TWICE AS MUCH AS WE SPEAK. THEN IT IS OK TO DO WHAT YOU THINK IS RIGHT AND TRUE.

I HAVE THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT THE FOLLOWING: ARE YOU LISTENING?

I AM DEEPLY TROUBLED BY OUR CHANGING CLIMATE AND THE CURRENT RISING TEMPERATURES OF OUR OCEANS AND THE MANY RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES AROUND THE WORLD. WE KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO BUT WE LACK THE FORTITUDE TO DO IT. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WE WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO DESTROY THIS INCREDIBLE CREATION THAT IS OUR EARTH. WHY NOT ? BECAUSE WE DO NOT OWN THE EARTH OR ANY PART OF IT. WE ALL ARE JUST PASSING THROUGH. SO HERE IT IS……

SO IF WE DO NOT AWAKEN, I FEAR OUR NEXT CATACLYSMIC EVENT WILL BE EVEN WORSE. IF WE FAIL TO LEARN AND WE CONTINUE TO BEHAVE AS REBELLIOUS CHILDREN…..WE ALL WILL BE PUNISHED.

in the end…… IT IS GODS’ WILL THAT WILL BE DONE, NOT OURS !

WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT. THERE IS A STORM ON THE HORIZON. SOME OF US WILL SINK AND SOME OF US WILL SWIM AND SOME OF US MIGHT MAKE IT TO A NEW SHORE AND OTHERS MIGHT NOT.

BE SAFE, BE CAREFUL, BE RESPECTFUL, BE KIND TO YOURSELF AND TO THE ELDERLY AND TO THE YOUNG. BE STRONG FOR THE WEAK, SEEK PEACE, LIVE PEACE. RESPECT EVERYONE.

NOW MORE THAN EVER BEFORE. FOLLOW YOUR HEART !
