This Is A Time Of A Great Awakening
This is a time of a great awakening to the truth of Man.
No longer will a few hide easily in the dark shadows and direct the affairs of Man.
For many have heard and answered the call to service and will not accept the slavery offered by the few, but will seek the fruits of their own labours upon this Earth.
A great collapse is in order and will pave the way for a new way of living within human community. A sharing of food and resources and more than this, an opening of heart to heart which will further facilitate an opening in the communal heart of Man.
It has been centuries since Mankind has been connected one to the other. This is the ache that has persisted due to not only the arrogance of Man, but to the acceptance of false values imposed upon the natural order.
The illusion was created long ago and has been maintained by a few of dark determination. Soon, their reign ends and begins the reign again of Man upon the Earth.
Man again free from the yokes of tyranny imposed in an unnatural manner.
Now, the images of old will be shattered and men and women will come back to their own good senses and live again in shared community.
Heart links to heart and flows begin with small groups as well as large groups. Love and kindness again reign upon the Lands and the
Lands will be free to co-operate one with the other just as the individual will co-operate one with the other.
This is no dream no longer, but a budding reality. A great renewal occurs and not just of a few, but of the many.
No longer deceived and lead astray. Now led by the hearts intentions as well as the hearts delight.
Now, a call has been answered and many can now hear the truth as it shows it's glowing smile. A truth that says, 'Mankind is glorious beyond words and a creator of such things of beauty.'
Now, accept your goodness and let that goodness join with that of others and as more connect to their inherent goodness, more will be connected to the Goodness from which all on your Earth vibrates with.
This Goodness will free you and help you to enter into new forms of human community in which all have worth and all are allowed to express their own inherent talents, abilities, and gifts to be shared.
It is in the sharing that Mankind will be healed and awakened from the illusions of today.
Share your voices, share your hands, share your hearts delight and reason and love will again flourish upon the Lands.
Listen to the sounds of silence and be healed. Open a gateway to your hearts dreams and be free of this artificial reality created by the few, but allowed by the many.
Feel love and feel loved again.
Be at peace and thrive upon your planet.
