Persephone, Queen of the Underworld is said to return back to the earth at Spring Equinox. Persephone was also the magical name of my recently departed friend Pam Retberg, who taught history at Stowmarket High School when I was a teenager in the early 80s, and who became a close friend the past 3 years. We spent many an evening cheerfully sharing tales over a bottle of prosecco – and on the last Tuesday of Winter 2020 (17th Feb), under a Capricorn Moon, I felt moved to drink one with her spirit. After half a bottle some words came ….. Persephone rising!
is the record of humanity’s journey of self discovery and self awareness:
all the details of our complex divine journey are there
for the path to be traced and the patterns understood.
History is the record of humanity’s attempts to build culture, cohesion and conscious community,
and of its failure to achieve ultimate goals of stability, prosperity, peace
due to it’s inability to eradicate FEAR from the picture.
Humanity believes itself alone, somewhat lost in the barren universe
yet its rediscovery of its innate interconnection with all existence,
including alien races in other star systems
and the many invisible realms of the multi-dimensional universe,
will be the most exciting, invigorating, intoxicating, magnificent homecoming…
A point that can only reached when humanity thinks and acts as ONE –
when peace breaks out on planet earth –
and well-being, LOVE, co-operation,play and self-discovery take centre stage in human existence
replacing the dead paradigms of separation, competition and SERVITUDE.
At this time, as Spring 2020 begins, humanity is prompted to remember its Oneness,
its interconnectedness and its frailty in face of the divine force of nature,
For surely it is our growing collective fear of climate change that has led us to this point of transformation, WHERE HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS IS UNITED IN FEAR OF AN INVISIBLE ‘ENEMY’.
Could it be that WE have invoked this virus into being, we have called up this time of rapid change in understanding, in how we live, in how we treat each other?
Life is a Oneness, the COVID19 virus is part of the game we are all in – WE have created it, to hasten our own evolution. Through fear we are finding out more about who we are….
As we learn to move through fear and to grow in love for each other we will find other ways to know our Oneness
- through JOY, through PLAY, through SEX, through PSYCHEDELICS, through ART, through DANCING, through SINGING, through SPIRIT.
- And through celebrating our collective HISTORY, the journey from darkness to light, from ignorance to knowledge, chains to liberation.
