A new heaven, a new earth

Should one be worried if prophecies start to make complete sense ?

I don’t know how this is going to happen, I just know this IS happening right now and we all are a part of it. In fact, we all are going along with it, if we realise it or not. I have never been someone to believe in apocalyptic scenarios or doomsday – but I have come to experience the power of the collective transformation, inside out.  The old things are passing away with breathtaking speed, as the instinct for congruent, conscious living prevails over the fearful attempts to keep order in division and separation. This is no longer in the realm of the esoteric or spiritual, no longer reserved to the mystics – no, this is what is happening right here and right now to everyOne in this universe.

To the mind, still anchored in linear time this cannot happen without a prolonged period of pain and agony. But what if we all have suffered enough ? What if there is no time to begin with and everything is happening simultaneously. What if the old things just disappear, as they are already gone anyway. The emblems of samsara or human strife  – money, power, inequality, slavery, death – the ubiquitous manifestation of misery and suffering caused by the illusion of separation.  A sea of unconscious concepts and sentiments gone and  no more, so we all can see.

This is from Revelation 21:

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.  I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.  ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

NB: Sulfur is known as the king of homeopathic remedies because it has such a wide range of use. It has a deep, long-lasting effect on the body and is often used to bring out symptoms for further treatment. For this reason, sulfur is generally used to treat chronic ailments, although it is also used for acute conditions such as fevers and colds. Sulfur stimulates the body’s natural healing powers, causing a general improvement of symptoms and sometimes causing new symptoms.
Just a more optimistic take on the vivid imaging of fire and brimstone –  Its a cleanse…;-)

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    Fire and brimstone. Its a cleanse. Yes.

    A metaphor for now and then. We are here now in the arena of a certain kind of ”doing’. To ‘Die before dying” and we all have at least a taste of the truth in of that.. Might that be the first, and most valuable death? Might our physical death be the second death? (There are many points and many levels of entry into a metaphor.)

    Conscious awareness, in the present moment, of suffering on the level of human life provides access to the spiritual reality, so say all the sacred traditions, so says Eckhart Tolle.

    It is the most valuable tool in the spiritual evolution of the majority of mankind.

    lol….right!

    What we sense we know is just the tip of the iceberg no doubt. Thus we can have an opinion, a p.o.v., which can be, hopefully, useful in the short term but not an identity. Mindful to my business, God will take care of his.
