DANCE

The supreme physical expression of human joy
Is dance.

God (including all earlier gods) requested dance first
Before images, ideas, and all other expressions of worship.

First was the foot
Then the hand
And, finally, the head.

Dance expresses joy in life
And the immanence of God in our hearts,
Along with a strong desire for physically moving with others.

Dance is how children express their happiness
With spontaneous movements.

I think it’s important to become aware of dance going on all around us –
Especially that of our sky neighbors – the birds.

Also, watch patterns of waves forming over large bodies of water –
Watch wind as it touches, and then re-touches, forest leaves.

Notice the small shy smile appearing on your lover’s face
And your joy, in response, when you give your feelings permission to shine.

Why not give that permission right now
After all, the entire world depends upon it!

 

THE NEED FOR A NEW MESSIAH

Jesus taught that each individual soul needs to wake up –
So, please, Wake Up!
Jesus made this demand every day of his life – up until his dying day.

However, now, and most especially now, we need a new kind of Messiah –
A New Messiah!
Who can call out not just to individuals – but to every individual in the world collectively
That is, to Everybody in the Entire World All at Once!

We know the earth’s been overheating like a frying pan –
Getting too hot to handle –
And the seas are next to boiling over –
While winds have been achieving ahistorical force-multipliers.

Yes, waves have been getting too high, winds blowing too strong,
And heat getting much too hot –
So, now, a New Messiah is needed who everyone in the world can hear at once –
Asking human beings to “wake up” – all at the same time
And instantly rally to do what’s necessary for stopping
This threat of an impending global warming catastrophe.

This New Messiah will embody, like Jesus did during his own time,
The spirit of all those who love God,
Along with all the children’s hopes and concerns about “saving the world” –
And, adding to our own individual/collective human voices (inspired most recently by AOC),
This New Messiah will say:
“Put a stop to all the inexorable greed and corruption arising out of carbon-based capitalism”
And “The spirit of God is equal to what’s needed for our planet’s survival”
And “God is the source of all light as well as the source of all life.”
