Sing A New Song
By Judith Gayle | Political Waves

GODDESS IS in Her heaven and all is right with the world. Doubt it? Don't.

Listen to the Buddha:

We are what we think.
All that we are, arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.

Speak or act with a pure mind
And happiness will follow you
As your shadow, unshakable.

How can a troubled mind understand the way?
Your worst enemy cannot harm you
as much as your own thoughts unguarded.

But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.

                                    -- Buddha (from the Dhammapada, translated by Thomas Byron)

That very last little bit -- not even your father or mother -- tells us something that we often forget; we are born in love. Our parents love us, even if they don't do it perfectly or even well enough to mark our lives in any positive way. It was a spark of love, of warmth and desire, that brought us onto this plane. It's love that defines us even if that is not our experience, here. It's the energy that lifts us, assists us, heals us -- and we are on a mission to love ourselves back into the garden, all together, hand in hand.

One people, one planet.

I can hear you groaning now...not another article about love! Why, yes -- yes, it is. At this momentous occasion, this flowering of possibility, I can think of no better topic. There is no other vibration, no other electrical current of change and challenge to our flawed ego, no other transformational, healing energy welcomed by our seeking soul that has the capacity to turn us around and point us forward so stunningly and miraculously as that of love. It's what we came here to do -- all the rest is dross and amusement, time-killers and confoundments.

Here is some good news. The universe is neutral. It will provide us exactly what we call forth. It does not favor Desmond Tutu over George Bush or Gandhi over Marx -- it does not "bless" America while damning Iran. 

That's our job and we've been busy with it for millennia. We are the ones who hand over power to one another, we are the ones who create the circumstance of our lives through judgments and decisions, we are the ones who design the final product. If we don't like it, we can choose again. And now...right now...the universe is conspiring with us to recreate ourselves and make new choices.

I'm grateful today for the planets spinning away in harmlessness, for the opportunity to be in form on the planet as she welcomes in the Change of Ages -- and that's what we're looking at as we contemplate such energies as the Great Attractor, the Galactic Core, a generational shift from Pluto and the upbeat blessing of Jupiter. In fact, I'm just tickled...and singing, because that's what I do when I'm at ease, when my intuition is playing me like a harp. How long we've waited! How long we've hoped!

Take a deep breath and remember that this is why you came here at this time, with some in the spiritual community suggesting that others that might have incarnated stepped aside to allow you to take their place because they knew you had the "right stuff" for such a momentous occasion. 

"We are constantly invited to be who we are," said a particularly wise man, Henry David Thoreau. So, if you need one, there's your invitation to allow yourself to expand into the person you actually are -- the one who lets go of what is petty and mundane as unworthy of your attention, and reaches into the ethers as a powerful spirit of peace and healing.

You came because of your capacity to love. YOUR capacity -- your gift to the All That Is, which, of course, includes YOURSELF. You are, as Neale Donald Walsch puts it, "God, godding." The world is spinning away as a vast stage for millions of fledgling gods to experience themselves through their combined thought, nurturing their sparks of love to keep them warm, but pitting themselves against all the things love does NOT look like. We've been doing that for so many eons, it's hard to break that habit -- but I think we've gotten all the information we need about lovelessness, don't you? It's time for a new thing, a new experience -- a new song.

How we think must be attended to, and that's never been easier; the veil is thin and we have lots of help from the unseen. We've watched the world around us crumble, so we know that it's time for change. We know we have a responsibility to participate, but we're often left feeling overwhelmed and powerless -- and clearly, how we think is critical at this moment of birthing a new paradigm. It's easy to hate what seems wrong and frightening, but it garners no power; in fact, it pulls at our core of energy. Most respectfully, then, quit it.

When those thoughts come up, recognize them for what they are -- fears, doubts, hurdles. Erase, erase, erase. Speak them into the trash can, banish them with a word -- "In the beginning, I AM." YOU ARE. WE ARE. Every "I am" you utter takes you somewhere -- make sure it's a place you want to go, a place where the warmth of love can enfold you, and your neighbor, as yourself. Just the edit of what's going on in your thoughts will change your energy forever, lifting it up towards a new way of being on planet Terra.

Look around you -- take mental notes on your life, your neighborhood, your state, nation, world. This is our expression of creativity, this is what love looks like today. Shall we change it? Shall we choose again? Shall we take the gazillions of dollars spent on warfare and use it to feed children and create a peaceful, respectful world village that Gaia would approve? Shall we replace patriarchy and punishment with a long-awaited spirit of forgiveness, conciliation, inclusiveness? Shall we redesign our entire focus of being, for the sake of love?

There is a New Moon on Sunday...the seeding of a new paradigm of human expression in the stellium of hopeful, visionary Sagittarius -- I invite you to create your new road map from all that you cherish, all to which you aspire. I encourage you to come to that moment respectfully, with intention to re-create an entire planet; if not YOU, who? Trust your intuition and constantly check in with your heart -- how do your hopes and dreams FEEL? Do they slap a grin on your face, or make your shoulders slump, your feet heavy? Are you thinking too small, looking at the hurdles and not the goal post? (Erase, trash bin, yadda.)

This is such an amazing moment -- take care not to come to it with doubt or fear. Your heart will lead you, because its language...our common love and its aim is to heal the dark illusions of our time. It reflects the song of the cosmos, the music of the heavens, the hymn of the angels. It's OUR song, welcoming in a new vibration for humankind. So lift your voice and usher it in with joy -- whatever happens next is just the steps toward the reclamation of the garden, the edit of thought forms and the stumbles of godlings as they lift themselves up toward the celestial music.

It is well, loved one -- all manner of things are well. And we have a new song to sing. Let that joy move through you like the perfect love you wish for, because when it seeds itself in you, it MUST come forth! Sing it with me -- ALL IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD! We will make it so!
