(Looking back now, through the decades, from the carefree, oblivious 1950’s and a world or hope and humanity, to the times now where Human beings carelessly and obliviously accept tragic suffering, greed, savage brutality and the murdering of young helpless children with seemingly blind, uncaring disregard and where we all seem to be enslaved in a world suffocating in monstrous hate and horror…we need to gather together in this special, sacred time at Easter and focus upon thoughts of peace and caritas. Somehow in all this darkness, while all our organized media and political climate are driving us deeper and deeper into a world of hate, bewilderment, despair and the bloody, mad agony of war you and I need to stumble somehow out of all this darkness towards the light; I thought it is time to change the channel.
I thought it important to rekindle the flame of optimism and hope and the communal dream for a better world that I was fortunate to engage and live through as a young man, and I wrote about a few years ago… a glimpse of the New Human World yet to come.)
THIS IS THE AGE (PART 1)
This is the time. This is the age. And the signs are everywhere. The cycle is reaching climax phase once again. For a brief and splendid time freedom, hope and dreams blossom on Earth. But, as always, it does not last. It is an ancient pattern. And the next phase is always the same. Oppression and darkness stealthily approach, and Humankind is poised on the unspeakable threshold of another dark age, once more. It is always the same. It is a terror we cannot even think of or speak to each other, but all of us feel its deadly approach. Simple human beings beseeching justice, humanity, reason and “speaking truth to power” do not work. Nothing works. It is simply about ignorance. Colossal ignorance. It is the way it has always been. And the only difference this time around is that this time we are entering a dark age that will never end…unless human beings can somehow shatter this ancient cycle, step into a new dimension, and begin human life on earth again…in a totally new and different way. To do the impossible and break this suicidal and destructive cycle all of us have to begin to understand that there is something wrong deep in the center of us all. It is a human problem not only that all of us share, but that the only way we will survive and escape is to solve it together. And we must begin to understand that the answer, when we finally uncover it, will change all of our world and civilization almost beyond recognition. Nothing will be the same.
