Human beings how lucky we are
to be on this earth around this star
in a solar system divinely designed to keep us blind
to the rest of the cosmos and life on other worlds –
until we are ready to accept what’s there to find;
designed to keep us blind, as we evolve the human mind
beyond conflict to a place compassionate and kind,
and weave a planetary story that prepares us to take our place
in the universal family as the Divine Human Race.
Long ago there were humans who saw through it all
felt the Presence of Spirit and answered its call;
mind was uncluttered, there had been no Fall:
but the darkness was coming, they knew memories would fail
so they built great stone monuments that would ever prevail,
that would withstand the Elements, the storms and the gales
and keep their Great Secrets, their Holy Grail
until a time in the future when the Old Ways would once again rise –
after centuries in which magic had been ridiculed, her practitioners despised –
the Old Ways returning, the Great Wheel moving on,
a brand new humanity, singing new songs.
Life brings us to CRISIS POINTS
because we are here to HEAL
our wounds of disconnection
from the one thing that’s really real.
Life hits us with emotions
Because we’re here to FEEL
the nice stuff and the tough stuff
to build a powerful psychic field
that can channel higher vibrations
in the service of a RENEWED CREATION.
Life is sensual, erotic,
with a quiet mind there is little but delight,
body and heart connect us to spirit
but the mind can trap us in fright, fight and flight.
The Human Soul seeks to know
its greatest reach, its brightest show,
to soar through the Universe
and know itself at home on the Earth
to feel its Freedom and realise its Bliss –
to dance in Love and know the Spirit’s kiss.
Pleasure is a Goddess, the Ancients knew
Pleasure dissolves the boundaries between Me and You.
Once the Peoples of Europe danced with Dionysus
Saw Love as a Goddess and Pleasure as her Worship
Knew that mysteries of Sex, Gender and Intoxication
were routes to Holy Transcendence, Ecstasy, Elation.
The Peoples of Europe once spoke with the Trees
Danced and Made Love in Sacred Groves.
The Armies of the Cross destroyed all these
and nowadays few people know
the Dryads, the Sprites of Water and Fire
the Spirits in the Breeze.
The People in Europe once danced around Fires
Communed, told stories and saw pictures in the flames:
This healed Souls and brought Wonderment, Joy and Grace
Brought touch with the deep nature of the Human Race.
The Peoples of Europe once built Stone Circles
Aligned to the Stars and the Sun,
They honoured the Old Ones and danced with Faerie
and this Journey we’re still on was begun.
The Old People of Europe danced with the Goddess
calling her Diana, Aphrodite, Venus, Danu, Sulis, Cybele, Freya, Frigga…
Her Temples were Ancient and Holy
but the Christians named her the Devil
and attempted to wipe out Her worship and memory
by murdering her priestesses, desecrating her holy places
and burning heretics, sodomites and witches.
The Old People of Europe were Nature folk
In Nature which they met Divine Presence
But the Swords of the Cross came to impose another way
The Goddess retreated:
She permitted their wars, their corrupt ways
Permitted separation from Her bosom
Until the human journey to Selfhood is completed
until the final days of HISstory
and the Triumphant Coming of Hers.
We ARE the OLD ONES, We never went away
As we remember the soul’s truth, we reconnect to the Way
The Cycles of Eternity are bringing us Home
To a World full of Wonder and Light
We each have within us the Power and the Glory
We can bring this world out of its long dark night.
