This is the Book where I tore out the pages.
Let darkness now have the things it has taken.
In Sunlight I live, make Joy in God's Temple.
In Earthlight I sing, making Love on God's Couch.
I praise the Lord with uplifted Voice and pull the Throng to His Holy Hill.
In Eden, in Zion, the Vineyard of the Earth, a stirring Noise is heard.
"We are full of His Glory!" are what the Rocks do Sing.
And yet, from Lips of Humans, a dumbness sometimes rings.
Are the Ears of Humans closed, that they do not hear the Song?
It is mounted from the Mountainsides, whispered in every Wind, hailed in every Howl, blasted by every Bird!
Can Humans not listen?
Are they so Deaf and D.U.M.B. that they will not sing Along?
The World is a Chorus, called L.I.F.E. (Love Is For Everything)
Abundant, its a place where trillions of Species evolve and co-exist.
Blessed, it is a place where Families prosper, where Childhoods are Happy and where Lovers find Joy.
Cherished, it is a Planet that can be made into HEAVEN, with only the tiniest changes.
I love Eden, which is the Secret Name of the Earth.
There is a Natural Order here, a Way of Struggle and a Way of Growth, which few can deny has a Divine Design.
In fact, the Name of Eden is an Anagram, which reads, "Earth's Divine Eternal Nature."
Of every Species on this Planet, there is One unlike the Rest.
It is a Race with a profound blindness, deafness, dumbness, and indeed, often a complete ignorance, of the entire existence of the Garden of Eden. I speak of Humans.
Humans do not realize it, but they live in a Special Place. They imagine a World called Heaven or Utopia or Paradise. Perhaps they believe it exists only after Death, or in a remote and hidden location only big enough for a few, or in a completely parallel place altogether. Perhaps they doubt it exists at all. But the fact is, its all around us. It is the very Planet! God made this Place! It's His! And He has given it to Us and to all our Sister Species. And if every Species would follow The Rules, the Way of their Species, their Planetary Assignment, - then every Species would abide in Earthly paradise.
Consider the FoX. It is the instruction of the Creator to the FoX, that he spend his time being a FoX. That means hunting in the Forests and Meadows, taking only his fill of game, and passing on his genes to a den of kits with his Vixen. So that always, there will be Foxes. And that always these Foxes will have enough to continue the Way of their Species, and hunt the Forests and Meadows.
Because the Fox obeys the Creator, FoXes have very good lives. They live in shady Forest Glens where food stays very plentiful. They build very Happy Families and are not troubled by outbreaks of Fox wars or collapses of Fox governments, bankrupted Fox economies or Fox crime or Fox poverty. As far as a Fox is concerned, all is well in the Garden of Eden.
Consider Humans. It is the instruction of the Creator to them that they spend their time being Humans. This means Building, Creating, Inventing, Improving, Cultivating and Replenishing the Environment while attempting to pass on their genes and values to a Family of Children with their Lovers. The instruction is that they Replenish all they take, so there will always be Humans, and that always those Humans will have what they need to live as Humans.
Because Humans do not obey their Creator, they often have very poor lives. They live in Nations with corrupt and oppressive governments, where they waste most of their lifetimes working, and seldom do they build very happy or healthy homes. There is Fear, War, Disaster, Poverty, Crime, & Disease. As far as Humans are concerned, the Garden of Eden is a Fairy Tale, and Planet Earth is a dangerous place.
Unfortunately for Foxes, the reality of one species can often affect the other species very greatly. Unfortunately for a lot of Animals, their Habitats are disappearing, climate is changing, and toxins are spreading - which can end an Animal's Garden of Eden experience rather abruptfully and painfully. Although when an Animal dies, its Death is but a passing, a Change, into a World where the Garden Life is permanent, Beautiful, and Eternal. But that makes it no less a tragedy that there is Violence here, on "side A" of the Planet. For on "side B" the Violent are judged. Earth Herself is capable of bearing Witness to Human Evil, and is able to ensure that a certain Price will be paid.
If these are indeed my Values, culled from the Earth like a fresh Spring of Water flowing over Ancient Rock, then it is obvious I should live a certain way. I am a Human. I should build, create, invent, improve, cultivate and replenish the Earth, all while attempting to pass on my genes to a Family of Children. Fundamentally, that is the Law of my Species. To follow it brings me in line with the purpose of Eden. To neglect it makes me disconnected, and lost.
If you currently feel listless, disconnected, or remote, this is no one's Responsibility but your own. It is in your Hands to Build or not build. To Create or not create. To Invent or not invent. To Improve or make less. To Cultivate & Replenish, or to rob & destroy. Such tools and powers as are yours should be dedicated to These Ends or they will Fester in you, as unrealized potential, which is unrealized Humanity and ultimately, a Poverty in Eden.
So I will strive to be the most Creative, Inventive and Improvisational Human I can be. A credit to my Species, a credit to the Earth.
As I survey the talents I have been given Naturally, looking for a Tool with which to Build & Create, thus fulfilling the Law of my Species, I realize that the Universe has made into a Builder with Words. I am often a Speaker and a Writer, and I have Inspired a few. I listen to a Flow in my Consciousness. I learn how to frame Sentences, to maximize efficiency. I imbue a Word with new Meaning, intuitively felt more than academically argued out, and in this Way I say things Freshly, and Originally. The Voice that speaks through me is of Words fitly spoken. They will fit into the Hearts of those who read with more Grace than the words without the Voice.
It is within my Human Calling, to be an Exponent of that Voice which Speaks to this Generation, inviting Us to a Place of Return, a Place of Rest. When I listen to Other Speakers, and Poets, within this Movement, I detect within their Words the Same Voice. We are each a Rustle of Leaves, a Green Tongue, in the Rush of a Great Wind. The Wind is God's Breath, God's Spirit.
The overarching Message is more felt than defined. But it is the Notion that this Planet is a Mismanaged Paradise, and we are each willing to Change what we need to Change in order to Return to a Better Way of Life. This Wind is Change, and in our Tree called Conscious Humanity we will shake out what is Dead & Useless: the Leaders who do not Lead, the Governments who Oppress, and any Branch that will not Produce.
Within the Movement there are many roles to fill. But one of the First of these is to be one of the Builders with Words, the Inspirers, the Uplifters. To Speak Peace And It Shall Be! To Speak Hope! To Speak Life! To Speak Victory! Simply by Speaking and Writing, sometimes even in the most private and mundane of contexts, I am releasing Good Truth into this Movement. You never know if a little Bird will hear your Words as they carried on the Wings of the Wind. Words mushroom out, they snowball, they are dominoes, they are a rising current. To the Loudest and Most Persistent the Ear(th) listens, and Responds. The Universe fulfills and Gives What's Asked.
Do I speak of Poets, or do I speak of Prophets? Do I speak of Prayers? Do I speak of Blessing. I speak the Truth. It is a Conscious Communication. It is part of the Agenda of the Cosmos, a chink in the chain of the Consciousness Shift, the Planetary Upgrade. With the growth of Conscious Communication there should be an Increase of Understanding, of Relationship, of Empathy, of Love, of Intuition. The dissonance & ugliness, the gossip & drama, negativity, hostility, cynicism & hate of Broken Society, of Elites-and-Control, will itself Fade, Be Replaced, as We learn New Ways of Thought & Expression.
Therefore, Brothers-Sisters, whatsoever is Pure, whatsoever is Lovely, whatsoever is of Good Report, Think on These Things.
OCCUPY YOUR MIND
The Movement takes place in Individuals before it takes place in Society. A Single Leaf must start to shake, after that, her Neighbors. Soon enough, the Whole Tree.
But to acknowledge the Force of Wind and the Flow of the Spirit, it is important to also realize what Forces there be that hinder us. Why do we keep silent and still, why do we reduce Change rather than embrace it? In the Planetary Upgrade, something Locks us in Place and threatens to stifle us. We drag our Feet, predominately because We Worry.
Let us be honest with the Facts. The World is a tumultuous place. More Nations than not have Tyrannical, Oppressive Governments, Planet-wide at this time in History. Most individuals alive at Present, live in unsafe communities, are at constant risk of Violence. Although this is rapidly Changing, and since 2011 began the People of Earth have been rebelling and casting aside their Broken Government(s). Much still remains to be done, and not a single gain in this Revolution is yet certain. Even in the rare places on Earth where Tyranny & Violence are remote, devastation of other varieties afflict the Human Spirit. We are all complicit in the existence of a System that is plundering the Earth and cheapening our Way of Life for Future Generations. Specifically, we are exhausting our Natural Resources and upsetting important Planetary Balances, bringing down Storms & Disasters on our Heads. A Truthful look at the Human Circumstance is that no one is Safe, nothing is guaranteed, and the decision to bring a Child into the World, as we hover on the brink of bigger and deadlier Wars, as our global Financial industry has tanked... as Nations plunge toward Chaos & Anarchy... as employment, home ownership, or healthy living become increasingly fleeting... the decision to continue our Species itself becomes a Risk far greater than ever Before.
The solution to Worry though, is Simple. To avoid worrying, a Person should Occupy their own Mind. Although much is wrong with the World around us, none of us can make any improvements, or achieve even one ounce more of security and safety, by simply worrying about it. Worry is Waste. It is wasted Mental Ambition. Worry is opposite of Faith. Faith is Productive. Worry binds our Hands & Feet. We hide from Life, when we Worry.
Ultimately, Worry is also a Sin. It is an unspoken assertion that our God is unwilling, or unable to carry us through. It is an Accusation against the Universe, it is the belief that there is a Deficiency or a Poverty in Eden, God's Perfect System. It is the Idea that the World doesn't Work, that Existence is not a Circle, that Justice is just an Illusion. Worry gives birth to the ridiculous notion that we are not being treated Fairly. Worry is an un-Truth. To indulge it is pointless. These are the times we were born in. We have no say in this. No one can make a Change but us, and every Moment that we betray that fact or shirk from it, every Moment we are Unconscious, we allow these Realities to continue.
Abolish Worry in your Heart by Self-Occupation. Consciously Create Peace. Speak healing mantras to your Soul and to all of Life. An Idle Mind is the Workshop of Satan. To Occupy one's Mind is to Liberate it. Become Aware of each Moment. Maximize it, Expand it. Always seek to employ your Natural talents, to be Human, to Build, Create, & Invent. If there is nothing left to do you can still Pray, you can still Love, you can still Smile. Redeem the Time. Shove as much Truth into a Day as you can do. Become Conscious, Awake, Alive... and take Part in the Coming of Spring.
I find it Interesting & Important that the Word for Our Movement is "Occupy." Of course, very many believe in Coincidence, but this Fox is not one of them, and Words Will Always Retain Their Power. "Words offer the means to meaning, and, for those who will Listen, the Enunciation of Truth." Words do not come into Parlance by Accident... nor, when they are used, can they ever be divorced from their Histories.
The History of the Word "Occupy" comes from Invasions, and Overthrows of Governments. To be an Occupying Force you represent something Alien to the System you live in. You are Ambassador, for a different Order. You answer to a Different set of Laws, even to a Different King.
In the Holy Bible, Jesus Christ instructed His Followers to "Occupy until I come." What precisely He meant by that is clear from the Gospels. He taught His Followers that they were in, but not of, this World's System, that they were Kings & Priests of the Kingdom of God, and that the Kingdom of God was within them. He taught that the Kingdom was Coming... that the Day of the Lord had been inaugurated, but had not yet arrived... that it was a Day of Justice & Peace. That it would be Good News to the Poor, and Liberty to the Captives. Jesus ascended into Heaven promising to go and prepare a Place for this Kingdom. He also Promised to Return and Bring that Place back with Him, and receive Us. He promised an Age of Peace to descend upon the Earth, after it had experienced a Time of Trial. He asked us to Watch the Skies, to Wait for His Coming, and significantly... He said to Occupy Until He Comes. To assert the Values of our Native Kingdom in this failing, sputtering Old System.
Every Mo(ve)ment has its Prophecy and no one knows for sure what the Times & Seasons are for our Lord's Return. But the Bible claims that in the Last Times Old Men would Dream, Young Men would see Visions, and that Sons & Daughters would Prophesy. It says there would be Signs in the Earth. It foretells a Time when some depart from the Faith, give heed to seducing Spirits, speak Lies in hypocrisy, and forbid others from Marrying. Ostensibly these Departers from the Faith would still claim to be Christians, but Love would not be in them, and they would be part of a false Church, an apostate establishment that misinterprets and misrepresents the Truth. Judge for yourself, by the Light of Scripture, whether or not that be the case today.
As long as we can Occupy Peacefully... we are guaranteed the Victory. As long as we can Turn the Other Cheek... as long as we can Walk the Extra Mile.. as long as we are actively non-violent in our quest for Peace & Fairness, we walk the steps of the Original Revolutionary. But Worry leads to a stressful reaction, puts us on the Defensive, and leads us to Defeat. Occupy your Mind first. Make it fix upon the Promises of God and the Destiny of Humans and this Planet, and He will keep us in Perfect Peace.
