The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE MAKE EARTH A SACRED PLACE
There once was a person called Earth - a huge and highly pregnant woman. She was crying and shaking, and she was desperately in need of comfort, as if she knew that the birth was imminent and that it would be painful, however glorious the outcome. Inside her stomach, rivers of lava were coursing with greater and greater fury. People had bored holes into her skin and detonated explosives. Poison had been poured into her veins. She was breathing toxic air. She was forced to process dangerous waste. Her treasures had been excavated. Her organs had been ruptured.
Rocking and massaging her was not enough to counteract all this, which had been going on for millennia. She needed spiritual protection and encouragement, so celestial beings appeared and placed amethysts at her feet and surrounded her in a large protective bubble. This helped her to regain her balance and relax.
One of earth’s inhabitants, a midwife, felt intuitively that the earth must be going through incredible birthing pains. As the midwife wandered about the countryside, helping pregnant women everywhere, she trod cautiously on earth’s “skin”, knowing how humanity had exploited and desecrated the ground she walked upon.
“HOW CAN WE MAKE EARTH A SACRED PLACE AGAIN?” she asked as she crossed a beautiful hilly landscape without roads. One path lead through a forest where the trees had faces and arms, and other “human” features. Here, the midwife heard the answer to her question: YOU CAN MAKE THE EARTH MORE SACRED BY RESPECTING THE TREES AS YOUR LIVING SISTERS AND BROTHERS.
She walked on through the autumn sunshine, treading on many dead leaves which also had decaying human faces. Here, the midwife heard another answer to her question: YOU CAN MAKE THE EARTH MORE SACRED IF YOU ARE CONSTANTLY AWARE OF THE CYCLES OF RENEWAL.
Then she walked into a field where lots of small children were laughing and playing with baby lambs. Here she heard another answer: YOU CAN MAKE THE EARTH MORE SACRED IF YOU PROTECT THE INNOCENT AND CELEBRATE ALL LIFE.
Then she walked into a village where she greeted the local people, and here she heard the answer: YOU CAN MAKE THE EARTH MORE SACRED IF YOU VALUE EACH ENCOUNTER AND ACT WITH RESPECT AND GRACE TOWARDS EVERYONE YOU MEET.
Then the midwife continued her travels, walking further afar to other countries, and she was greeted by Kings, Queens and dignitaries. There she heard the answer: YOU CAN MAKE THE EARTH MORE SACRED BY DEVELOPING PEACFUL RELATIONS AND CO-OPERATION WITH OTHER NATIONS.
When she looked upwards towards the sky, she saw many stars and planets, and then she heard the answer: YOU CAN MAKE THE EARTH MORE SACRED IF YOU SUPPORT HER DESIRE TO RECONNECT WITH HER CELESTIAL FAMILY FROM WHOM – OUT OF LOVE FOR EARTH’S INHABITANTS – SHE HAS LONG BEEN SEVERED.
Then the midwife climbed to the top of a nearby mountain and stood with arms outstretched. It was here that she received the most important answer of all: YOU CAN MAKE THE EARTH MORE SACRED BY RECOGNISING YOURSELVES AS GODS AND GODDESSES, LIVING UNDER DIVINE GUIDANCE, EMPOWERED WITH THE ABILITY TO CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE.
The midwife finally understood that SHE WAS A MAJOR AGENT OF CHANGE. Now, when she walked on earth’s lush undergrowth, the cells on the soles of her feet sang songs which vibrated in the ground beneath. Each step was a prayer, a gift given and received, a duet between the surfaces which met and the breath which mingled. Her hand embraced branches to become one. Cells greeted one another, exchanging information and transforming as a result of the encounter.
Her face touched the face of the earth in mutual caress, each cell whispering love and receiving love’s whispers. Her breath met earth’s breath – the wind – to sing exquisite harmonies. Earth’s coloured petals delighted her senses, and she delighted the earth with her dancing movements, every touch a kiss and a blessing. The midwife ran endlessly over grass which rose eagerly to meet her. The ground was free to breathe through every pore, soaking up all light, gratitude and adoration, and thus Earth was inspired to produce abundance for herself and for all grateful inhabitants who granted her peace, recuperation and repose. All this enabled her to give birth to a new age of peace.
