LOVE POEM FOR TROUBLED TIMES

In many ways it’s not a surprise
This has been coming for a long time
Trouble has lingered in the air
Haunted us, threatened us

We arrived in turbulent times
Where everything is upended
Nothing is real
And we can’t tell who lies
And who speaks truth

Those with wealth beyond measure
Play power games and manipulate our lives
For agendas we do not understand
Conspiracies run rampant
And feed the insecure and fearful imagination

We lurch from one crisis to another
Unable to slow down the machine
The weather, the economy, the politics
An endless barrage of stuff

And now this

Which has brought us into a clash
Of seemingly divided paradigms
The paradigm of separation
And the paradigm of unity

We are now in both
As physical bodies
We are forced to be separate from each other
But as a species, as a consciousness, as a world
We have never been so together
All experiencing the same thing, albeit in different ways

Is this a time of evolution
Of revelation
Or of isolation?

No one knows
As no one knows the movement of evolution
Until it has happened

Is this our Aquarian moment
Astrology, life, evolution
Bringing us to a bifurcation point
A point of no return
Where we evolve and grow together
Or we slide into destruction

No one knows

Which leaves us here
With this moment
Here, now, heart beating, breath in and out

For those spiritual seekers
Who look beyond the veil
This is your time
This is my time
Spiritual seeking is easy
When life is comfortable and safe
But to stay in presence and openness
When the boat is rocking one way and the other
Challenges even the wisest and deepest

Still, that is the call of the emergent warrior of love and truth
I beseech you, stay in goodness, in awareness and in love
There is no other time to wait for
If you can’t be who you have been becoming, now, today
Then you have missed your time

It’s not what you do that defines you
It’s how you resonate
That resonance is what goes into the world
You can resonate from your home
On the internet, in your messages from your phone
You can resonate reactivity or fear
Or you can bless the world
Resonate inner strength and goodness
Even as you carry some fear
Fear is NOT the enemy
When fear is not embraced
When fear brings a story
When fear is acted upon
That’s the trouble
Fear is just an energy that wants to come home to love

Let it, let it, let it
Become the open space of a vast love
That holds the pain of the world
And the pain of all the lies, and greed, and manipulation
Don’t deny it
Just hold it all in something that is greater
Never doubt the power of love’s vastness

This connectedness in love’s vibration
IS our unity
It IS our togetherness
Separation is easy
It’s what we’re taught and what we believe
Unity is a subtle energy, at least for now,
So we must grow it and feed it
And fan its flame
Love is the only way we can do it

Take heart beloved
We are in dynamic times
Pay attention below the surface
Behind the veil
There is a great window opening
And we are facing it…

In so much love
