A Harmony of Opposites
December 17, 2021
Sunny and cold
I almost wrote the title as “Harmony of Angels”, and perhaps I should have because when we have harmony with each other, old and young, rich and poor, white and everything else, we are angels. We are participating in the love, generosity and also the power of the higher level of consciousness.
“What is man that Thou art mindful of him? Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels.” How come the poet, John Donne, knew that and we don’t know it? Has our sub-angelic nature been completely obscured by semi-automatic gadgetry, not to mention semi-automatic weapons?
Yesterday, while walking along Lakeshore Avenue in my neighborhood, I saw painted on the sidewalk the words “ONLY REVOLUTION!’ “Correct!” I thought. Only a revolution will help us, but not a violent revolution with guns, but a revolution of the heart, a quiet penetration of new perspectives into the global community, a rising above ridicule and rejection for those who think differently from us, to a willingness to see the anger, fear, and, yes, desperation, taking the place of rational communication, along with the cynicism and hypocracy of people in high places.
Instead of writing on sidewalks and buying a gun, I am focusing on the sphere of light shining irrevocably the next level of consciousness up. That is the light that will reveal what we must do about the murky bog in which we find ourselves. Remember, a peat bog is fuel. Burning fuel gives heat and light. We will access higher levels of consciousness, but we may have to burn the whole bog before we can rise as humanity to our angelic birthright.
KEEP LOOKING UP!
What I am reading: “Talking With Angels” by Gitta Mallasz is still my go-to book for how to conduct ourselves in dark times, or any time. Available on Amazon.
