Risks

AquariusAquarius

For our small earthly selves life frequently
Appears to be a too risky and scary business.
That’s why we usually dislike and resent the changes
The Universe has in store for us, even thought they just
Wish to move us forwards and upwards on our personal
Evolutionary spiral, so that through new experiences
We can learn and grow ever more Heaven-tall.
Never mind the small earthly self detesting the changes.
Without them our spirit/soul will never be able to discover
Our own true higher God or Christ nature.

Risks have to be taken so that our approach to life
And the way we perceive its purpose can transform itself.
Deeply ingrained wrong thinking and behaviour patterns,
False beliefs, prejudices and superstitions need to be shed.
They are the ones that bring about obstacles and difficulties only.
Time to say goodbye to anything that has outlived
Its usefulness, including people and places,
And especially our world’s old religions.

Alas, life can seem to be a risky business because
Sometimes laughing can make us appear foolish,
Weeping as being sentimental.
And yet, through reaching out for others
We become involved with them.
If showing our feelings reveals
Too much of our true higher nature,
Hoping exposes us to despair,
If we try something and fail
And truly living does not stop our
Physical body from dying.
So what?
The indwelling spirit/soul are eternal
And immortal, they can and will never die.

Risks have to be taken.
The greatest hazard in life is risking nothing.
The one who risks nothing,
Does nothing, has nothing and is nothing.
People who hope that by not risking
They can somehow avoid earthly life’s
Suffering and sorrows are very much mistaken,
Because these things are necessary parts
Of every human being’s evolutionary pathway.
The only thing that can be achieved by risking nothing
Is avoiding precious opportunities for changing,
Learning and growing, loving and truly living.

People who allow themselves to remain enslaved and enchained
By the false beliefs, superstitions and prejudices of our
World’s old religions, forfeit the only freedom that’s truly
Available to human being’s on the earthly plane.
It consists of believing and following that which
The wise one or living God within everybody’s own being,
The inner guidance of our built-in lie-detector,
The only one in the whole of Creation whose
Information is truly reliable and trustworthy.

Its guidance provides us with the courage of acting
Upon the knowledge that every human being
In truth is a being of love, who has its origin in love
And is on its way of returning to it.
Independent of how long this journey
May still take, that’s what every one of us is.
This knowledge lights our way
Home into what we always have been
And forever will be:
God’s beloved children of the Earth,
Immortal spirits and souls who, from time to time,
Are for a while encased in matter.

Only those who are willing to take the risk
Of conducting their lives in keeping with this
Knowledge will ever be able to love the way our Creator,
The Great Father/Mother of all life and their only born
Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ, loves every one of us:
Totally and unconditionally, wisely and free.

Come To The Edge

‘Come to the edge,’ He said.
They said: ‘We are afraid.’
‘Come to the edge,’ He said.
They came . . .
He pushed them . . .
And they flew.

Guillaume Apollinaire 1880 – 1918
French poet, playwright, short story writer, novelist and art critic

Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It’s too high!

Come to the edge!
And they came.
And we pushed.
And they flew.

Christopher Logue 1926 – 2011
English poet associated with the British Poetry Revival
