Project Wake-Up ode to A New Earth
When eye contact’s seen as profanity
And value is housed in our vanity
Can no-one see this insanity…
What’s happened to our humanity?
The simple art of human connection
Lost somewhere in our own reflection
A product of our own confection
Consensus guiding misdirection..
Are we so concerned with our own immunity,
We’ve buried the meaning of true community,
Drifting in silos of mindless disunity,
Forgotten the truth of our source and our unity?
Forgotten giving for giving’s sake,
Raising our children to be on the make,
Blind leading blind, taught teaching take
This dog-eat-dog world will be fine till it Brakes!
Is it floods, or shakes or nuclear bakes?
That it takes..
To unclothe our mistakes..
Leave us naked and raw as the new world awakes,
It’s time to rebirth, reconnect with our earth
To love this great woman for all that she’s worth!
Caressing her creatures, embracing her girth
Leading the way for the active inert…
Author’s note: I wrote this a couple of years ago as I was undergoing what it meant to be ‘awakened.’ On a trip to Sydney I got news a wonderful female colleague, who was taking long service leave after 10 years of servitude to a corporation, had died in suddenly in plane crash whilst holidaying in Cuba.
As always when someone dies, the sadness for a life cut short, the grief for those left behind, and the shock of our own mortality, the questioning of the unexplained and seemingly unfair echoed in the depths of my soul. I wondered why. I grieved for the lost opportunities. I grieved for her. I grieved for myself. I replayed the grief of former, closer deaths in my life.
I contemplated this life of ours and wondered why I felt so disconnected from the sea of busi-ness of George St. I contemplated this as I went to my office and rushed to ride the elevator to the synthesised reality on the 38th Floor, the man made light, the fake potplants, the egoic systems and hierarchies imposed by people disconnected from themselves trying to validate themselves by controlling others and situations around them. Wreaking insincerity and inauthenticity through their insecurities. I contemplated this as I tried to catch the elevator as the doors began to shut. And the people inside stared at me, through me & ignored me. They had their cubicles to get to you see. Their meetings. It was more important to get to that false reality in the sky 10 seconds earlier than it was to acknowledge & extend self-lessness and kindness to a fellow human being.
I contemplated, and I woke up. This was not what I wanted for my life, for our humanity. This fragmentation. This seperateness. This spending 10 years in a cubicle, stuck in a system that perpetuates people’s beliefs that this is how it must be, ony to realise LIFE as a punctuation mark in an otherwise boxed in limited story.
I got responsible, I realised Gaia and her children were crying. I realised we had to get back to community, to connectedness, to caring about others as much as we care about self. To stop this madness of individuliasm. To realise I am you and you am I.
I got responsible for my life. For my thoughts. For my belief system. I challenged my truth. I realised it was nothing but. And what I learnt was scary. And challenging. And amazing. And liberating. I learnt that in order to truly know myself, I had to lose myself completely. I learnt I truly am the creator of my world without, by mastering my word within. I learnt my purpose & that I know everything and nothing at the same time. I learnt that THIS MOMENT is an intoxicatingly joyous place to be. I found my way to personal freedom and bliss and what is real and what is not.
I learnt I had to do my bit to help others realise this for themselves, to give them access to the insights I was fortunate enough to get. To help guide them along the journey back to the SOURCE that they and we all are. And so I do. And it is a wonderful place to be
If you want personal freedom, liberty and joy they ARE available for you. If you want to realise your dreams, they ARE possible for you. And for those you love. Access your gifts, your personal power to affect change and make a difference in shaping not only your own life but the direction of our humanity. YOU are THE ONE. And The time is NOW.
Wishing you Love, Truth & Freedom
