In recent months the Tuesday evening “Messiah Training” group has discussed some interesting videos (THRIVE and I AM) and books (among them Peter Kingsley’s A STORY WAITING TO PIERCE YOU and Kathleen McGowan's books: THE EXPECTED ONE, POET PRINCE, and BOOK OF LOVE).
A dear friend of ours wrote in an email to me regarding these latter books: “I have a question that has not been answered, only asked: What about the time element? Why such a quest, and why the wait? Why now?”
You know me: I had no better sense than to try to answer. The following is based upon what came to me in my email answer to her question. --
“Why the wait and why now?” Because, like the turning of the cosmic clock of the galaxies, the movement of human consciousness – because it is always by free choice – is maddeningly slow and plodding.
EXCEPT . . . once in a while there is a kicker in that movement. Like that special click of the mantle clock that signals it is getting ready to strike the hour, sometimes humankind in it’s seemingly blind choosing suddenly starts buzzing and getting set for a cosmic “trigger point”.
The trigger itself may be a planetary alignment, a lunar or solar eclipse, a meteor shower, or a comet pass takes place . . . or a Mayan calendar comes to an end. And, because of the centuries and millennia of human striving which led up to that moment, all the energy poised behind the pain, hurt, and fear explodes like “jet fuel”, propelling humanity into the next stage of our unfolding way.
The incarnation we remember as Jesus provided a relatively recent (in galactic time) glimpse of the goal we as human beings have been moving toward through the corridors of time. Does this idea draw anything from our love and honoring of Jesus? God no!!! It reminds us that he kept saying, “Change your mind” and “Follow me!” For two thousand years he has been here “in our face” saying “change your minds” and “follow me” and offering the “keys of the kingdom”.
It is always personal. It doesn’t matter what anyone else does with Jesus. When I really see, Jesus, who he was, what he did, I see what God is offering to ME. And, by the way, Jesus is not the only one. There have been masters (male and female) throughout human history who have shown us who we are, how we can be, what we can do, etc. In them “the acorn sees the oak tree and meets its destiny!”
Now, “why now?” Because –
It is finally a little bit safer than ever before. Because of the internet the tyrants no longer have any place to hide! The whole world is watching! (Most of those who have put forth information from these sources for the last 2000 years have been, literally, killed. On some level, many of you and I are but a few among thousands of people who have what seems to be soul memory of what has been done to us who dare to “know” anything other than what the “church” permitted us to – not “know”, but – “believe”. Since only the “church” can “know”.)
Our human curiosity and expectancy has driven us to “sniff down these trails”. And a “pack” of “blood hounds” has emerged to lead the chase.
These authors may not have every detail correct. This is not about journalistic reporting, any more than it is in the Bible. This is about reaching into the soul and finding there the best and the highest that our soul can remember . . . and writing it down. (One of the reasons I have delayed so long to write down what I remember, is my determination to “get it right” as in: the very best and highest that my soul can remember! How can I do that, when it is still unfolding???
I am 76 years old now and I know the time is approaching when I must “download” all this stuff into whatever form I can give it.
But the only real answer to the question is: BECAUSE IT IS TIME.
The most deeply indoctrinated of the dogmatic religionists knows in the deep heart of heart that there is a whole lot more. It is no more possible for the dogmatic to deny the radiance of our being than it is for the drunkest alcoholic in the gutter; because God placed the radiance there. We can delay our recognition of our radiance for another 150,000 years; but we cannot erase it! It is not of our own making, thank God! It waits patiently for us individually to be willing to accept it and embrace it.
That instant of recognition is the veil-shattering moment for each of us individually.
But we are more. I am individual; yet I am a part of this collective, massive, yet singular LIFE, which is neither limited to the human species nor even to Planet Earth! If ALL-THAT-IS is really ALL-THAT-IS, then I am a part of THAT and so are you.
Jesus said at one point “. . . if these were silent, the very stones would cry out!”
That is where we are in this year 2012 in human history. That is now.
There is the pressure of thousands of years of brokenness and human strivings. There is the pressure of our science, philosophy, inspiration, hope, and aspirations. There is the march of seismic, meteorological, volcanic, tidal energies. There is the weight of oppression which has kept it necessary to keep these treasures (and many others, by the way) hidden, lest they burn the eyes of the beholders and cause another person to be burned at the stake!
The alignment of the cosmic clock, the tension on the spring of human consciousness, the lubrication of all those tears (of joy as of sorrow), the academics scratching old itches, the mystics seeing the unseen, the death and disappearance of species after species, even the poison sludge in the depths of the oceans . . . the whole singularity of the universe is poised waiting for that click of the mantle clock, which is distinct from the normal tick. When we hear it, we all know what is coming, we turn our eyes to look at the little door in the gable of the clock, ready for it to spring open, the bird to pop out, sing its song and strike the hour . . . .
Yes, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, everything can change. It is a promise.
The “New Heaven” and the “New Earth” is emerging; because we are finally ready to welcome it! I believe we already have rounded the corner.
The non-existence of the emperor’s clothes is now very obvious to all.
The excuses of us “unworthy” humans are, likewise, becoming now obvious for what they were.
Inhumanity will show itself clearly in the illuminating radiance of a new humanity poised and waiting to step forth as the shining ones. We have known they were “there” and have been expecting “them”, without accepting the fact that WE ARE THEY, HERE; and, like the acorn seeing the oak tree, we are now seeing our destiny! Doom and gloom is so not it! The SEED God placed in each of is in the process of sprouting. Like the acorn, which gives up its form in becoming the oak, we may be changed in form – many of us may seem to die sprouting! – but what a gift to be here now! What joy for the acorn to make way for the forest!
(During the formative years of the Center for Peace I saw a silvery statue of a man and a woman as they emerged from the “pool” and stepped up in “superman-taking-off” pose as if to fly – the Shining Ones! This new humanity! it made me wish I were a sculptor.)
Twenty-five years ago I was “told” the reason the world’s population had swollen so much was that so many souls desired to be present for this moment.
“Why now?” Because it is time for this universe and its humans to chime the hour; and we are here and a part of it.
WHAT A TREAT!!!!!
That is “why now”.
At least, that Perry’s version; and I’m sticking to it!
Love and Blessings! And, Dear Friend, thanks for asking . . . see what you started?
