Now Is A Time Of Great Rejoicing
Now is a time of great rejoicing within your realm, although few will see it that way.
A small group seeks a peaceful and equitable lives way for many within your human communities and meet with much resistance from the forces of the old and outmoded ways.
A clash of ideas results and an unwillingness to bend or to adapt to a new world that is coming.
A new world in which all are respected and cared for.
A world in which justice again shows her benevolent face.
A world only dreamed of till now, but now activated and formed by a few whom have now become many.
The old dream of freedom culminates into a new expression in the days ahead.
No longer will the old ordering be served.
Now is a time of great and new possibilities for living within human community.
Those who have betrayed their Lands, their families, their friendships will be exposed and no more will they reign upon your planet.
New methods of organizing human community will be expressed as the old ways dissolve.
Justice and freedom will be the norm and Mankind will again flourish
upon the Land.
A cry will go out to join us in our forming of a new creative endeavor in which imaginary values dissolve and reality comes to the forefront of human community.
A flash of energy ignites the transformation.
A flash of such power, never before seen.
An eruption and then a calm.
A natural calm that overcomes the fearful creations of your past.
A past asleep, a future now awakened.
A people in love again with each other as well as all life withing your realm.
The animals will know having sensed the change in Man.
Man will come to understand his place within the structure of human living.
No longer will greed and violence rule.
Now, is the time of the human, plus God joined as one.
Heavenly creatures more in place in their human bodies with more feeling, plus more senses to be used in the expression called, daily living.
Now, a time awaits.
A time of living in loving kindness in shared community with all
living entities upon your planet.
So swift a change will it be that Man will wonder how could he have lived in such a brutal way with his own kind as well as all the kinds that inhabit your world.
A great awakening, a great transformation, a great wave of energy, an explosion of the old that releases a fresh new energy for Mans' use.
A sense of order, a sense of reason, a sense of justice returns to Man as he awakens from the nightmare of his past.
A forward looking from the Now of Creation.
A happiness, a love to be expressed.
No longer denied, now accepted and released into your human communities.
The best of your humanities comes forth as the worst retreats into the dark abyss of its creation.
A new day, a new way, a new existence dawns upon Mankind.
That day is near and nearer than you might ever expect from your human perspective.
