douglas Posted April 7, 2016 Share Posted April 7, 2016 To The ShrineCassiel led me to the shrine, Adorned with a headdress of gold,Henna tattoos decorating his face. He took me into holiness; His bronzed hips swaying between lotus flowersAs he led me past the thrones of Shiva and Krishna and Jesus and Buddha.Joyously, we approached Gaia and Allah and Venus and Zeus,And Aphrodite descended, embracing us tenderly.I was taken to the alter of bleeding sacrificesWhere flowers, spices and the supplications of the innocentsWere placed into the Chalice of SalvationTo protect the raging, longing spirits of humanity.And I prayed to all of the Gods and Goddesses,Begging them to overlook the blind transgressions of religiosityAnd all of the vanity, cruelty and senselessnessOf this Dark Age;And as the incantation rose up with the smoke of incenseRa shone down on us all with patience and love. The fires of the temple roaredAnd Michael and Gabriel and Uriel and RaphaelAlighted to comfort usWhile Pan and Eros danced together in the sacred spaceEvoking goodness and peace for all upon Earth.A reverent veil of silence then descendedAnd the Guardians of SoulsChastised themselves with briars, genuflectingAs they desired mankind to understandThe true humility, compassionAnd selflessness behind their solitary martyrdoms.The throats of bulls and birds were slicedAnd the holy congregation danced until their eyes rolled back;And the Water Nymphs and Sirens swam intoThe Marble Port beside the Shrine,Bringing with them salty blessings from the oceans,Whispering watery songs from the seas and streamsTo help bring relief to those with parched hearts.The secret Gods of the Amazon were also there And the fiery Spirits of the Volcanoes and Islands; Gold and silver and flame and mud, The many faces of our Beloved God. Then Mary appeared in resplendenceIn the sapphire sky above us,Framed by glittering stars and crystalsWhile the songs of the blamelessResounded across the Universe.Below us, on Earth,Flowers bloomed,Babies were bornAnd bombs exploded,Leaving humanity exhausted, twisted and forlorn.Whiteness and humility was laid down upon the floorsAnd a mantra was sung,“Learn to love and turn away from your senseless wars!”Then came the spirits of the artists and philosophers and poets,The intellectuals and statesmen of times past;And the wisdom, creativity and true beauty in manWas celebrated amidst the vaulted architecture and grandeur;And a loud scream was heard -The collective voice of all who ever were and shall be,Rising up to the pinnacle of Heaven,The Eternal Place where all will eventually find peaceIn the dimension of light and enlightenment.And the souls of the misguided, the wicked and evil destroyersWrithed in torment and bondage,Their spirits tortured by their choices and the darkness of their Cruel transgressions against others;And Mother Nature recoiled,Forced to reject her blind and malevolent children,Those whose greed and desire have torn and destroyedThe purity of Earth.The Gods and Goddesses then fell silentAnd loud rushing winds swept in from every direction.Trumpets resounded above usAnd we watched as all was swept up and condensedInto one beautiful diamond of Singular Light.A gentle, melodious voice,More beautiful than anything we had ever heard,Then emanated from the jewel imploring:“Oh sanctimonious souls, at war with one another,Desist and open your spirits once again to the Infinite Mystery.Without tolerance, wisdom and understanding the Truth cannot be revealed, So choose love and come to rest in peace once more. Flow back into synchronicity with nature and each other; Go back to the Shrine and recall the secrets you have forgotten. Seek beauty with compassion, humility and reverence, And you will remember who you truly are.” Quote To receive love, you have to give it...
