      From the depths of my soul

      a voice cries out - Humanity awaken

      and arise from slumber

      to our future Life.

       

       

      Create a Life of peace, of joy

      and harmony between all peoples

      where violence is but a memory

      in the history which passed

       

       

      away from centuries of grief,

      of war, of territorial imperatives,

      national greed and economic woes,

      Our lands expire, and the children know.

       

       

      Make a world where men and women thrive

      with every opportunity,

      where borders are erased of human enmity

      and in its place new seeds are sown

       

       

      to feed the world and share the common wealth

      with all who come to dine upon Earth's living table,

      where hatred vanishes into history

      never to return, and forgiveness rules instead.

       

       

      Give me Love, the real true love

      only spirit knows to shine on Earth.

      Make that love the One and All

      the Creator made for us to grow.

       

       

      Kiss the flowers, breathe in the air,

      the zephyrs in the fields contrast

      the  essence of the lily and the rose

      with nature and her earthly love.

       

       

      Drink the waters from the wells so pure

      the waterfalls fill them up for sure,

      the rivers melted from the Alpine snows

      make everything green, the gardens glow.

       

       

      Give me the spark where life unfolds

      the wonder of genetic codes.

      so every living thing may grow

      up into a ripe maturity.

       

       

      Respect all Peoples of the Human race,

      let no one bring us down but up

      into the higher regions of the mind

      where wisdom flows into the soul.

       

       

      Where hatred dies a happy death

      and everyone comes out to see

      the world is Human and Divine

      for people to Love, and Be.

       

       

      Where commerce flourishes

      in a spirit of cooperation,

      working smarter to increase the wealth

      so all may enjoy the bounty of the World

       

       

      and go to sleep among the stars

      dreaming collective dreams

      of even greater worlds to be

      for every child, you and me.

       

       

      Forget old thinking

      and ideal utopias,

      the garden of the world

      is here right now, just look around.

       

       

      Let common sense be our constant guide.

      as Earth revolves around the sun,

      universal principles give rise

      to reason and enlightenment.

       

       

      What should disturb our peace,

      perhaps the weather, acts of nature,

      volcanos, tidal waves and hurricanes?

      Let not  Man stop Peace from being.

       

       

      Visionary eyes do see

      deep into infinity,

      it's here for anyone to know,

      the stars and heavens - They are ours

       

       

      to breathe in deeply

      until we have absorbed them so,

      that God emerges in one's sight

      as we watch the galaxy.

       

       

      Live not in the past, or future,

      but now in time that's real,

      real-time - just right now

      as these words flow right through us.

       

       

      No intellect is too small

      to see the great and all,

      the whole of our reality

      stands right here in creation.

       

       

      See the woman, touch the man,

      love the child, and we can,

      nothing may come in between

      the hearts of human families.

       

       

      The world is full of people

      by the billions, each one

      with a soul, yet not everyone knows

      life is beautiful and precious.

       

       

      May we give our all, our Love,

      our hopes, our dreams fulfilled

      to everyone we meet in life;

      what is there to lose, our strife?

       

       

      Ease the stress of work and money,

      abundance comes to those

      whose honest labors save the world

      from crooks, and thieves and killers.

       

       

      No one need ever starve

      in this great universe.

      Humanity possesses the knowledge

      to bring abundance to everyone on Earth.

       

       

      The finer the Love

      the greater the sharing,

      those in poverty will slowly

      rise up in hope,

       

       

      into the light of wondrous times.

      One day governments

      will not create war in the World;

      abundance comes to all who give.

       

       

      Here is an AXIOM for us to know:

      to give is to receive,

      to be still and know!

      God is within, around, beyond . . .

       

       

      There are no rooms for narrow minds

      in God's great kingdom on the Earth,

      God did not create a box

      to look outside and be afraid.

       

       

      Fear is not God's Awesome power,

      Love is the way, the only way.

      When ForGIVEness finds the key

      Compassion is unlocked.

       

       

      To have compassion for those who cry

      from poverty, hunger and despair.

      To cry for those who kill

      for they have murdered their own souls.

       

       

      Cry for the victims  of these crimes,

      and those who had no love in childhood,

      do not hate what hurts inside;

      even the worst of people are bound

       

       

      by cosmic Laws

      once the lesson's learned

      after violence or rape,

      their souls will atone after life.

       

       

       The Laws of Love come from eternity,

      just as light reaches the Earth,

      so does Love emanate from God,

      and in our hearts it s we l l s..

       

       

      For those who do not believe in God,

      it's all right, and OK.

      Do not worry, God loves us

      when bringing us up to the afterlife.

       

       

      Be crystal clear in all we think

      the universe is vast, the Earth so bright

      with living life, look up to sky

      and fill our lives with deep insight. 

       

       

      Never hope to count the stars

      for most of them are galaxies,

      and in each one, millions of beings

      exist in their worlds as you and I.

       

       

      Open  our eyes to the heavens around,

      the cosmos reveals eternal secrets.

      Civilizations alive, and thriving wise

      with Wisdom, Love, and Enlightenment.

       

       

      For those who do not believe in Life

      outside the Earth, wait until its proven,

      but guess how many galaxies exist

      and how many worlds might be out there.

       

       

      Skeptics may declare "nothing exists"

      yet who are they to tell us?

      I know the universe IS filled with life.

      Come on, think deep, is this not so? 

       

      Then master the  elements,

      the s p e e d of time

      is so  very slow to reach us

      and so mighty to attain.

       

       

      And yet,

      think of the Earth,

      the lands and seas,

      the Mountains rise.

       

       

      The Deserts glow at sundown

      and the haze rises from lakes.

      At dawn, herons lift their wings

      and fly over the spirit of waters

       

       

      while you and I watch their feet let

      tiny water-drops fall back to the surface,

      forming ripples in the quiet still of morning.

      O may we see the wonders of nature,

       

       

      the fruits of summer, the breath of spring,

      the insects buzz in the ears so loud,

      the frogs jump out from under water

      into the light of day, and the river r u s h i n g

       

       

      down to the pebbles which clean the water

      moving along the banks of streams

      nature washes with her cleanest hands

      so we may partake in the melodies.

       

       

      And the music of nature sings out loud.

      The cicada in fields, the birds of song

      trilling in morning, feeding their flocks,

      speaking music to us, and reality to them,

       

       

      so hard they work to catch the worms

      to feed their offspring in the nests,

      while birdcalls really are calling for mates

      in trees, in cities, in the wilderness.

       

       

      Hear the music of nature sing loud,

      the bull in the meadow, the beasts in the hills.

      The crackling of antlers in the reindeer's fights,

      the soundings of Narwhals through the nights.

       

       

      As the Orca screams its deadly wails,

      confusing the sounds of poor Dolphins;

      the hungry ORCA make meals of their cousins,

      but we never see it, yet the Dolphins tell.

       

       

      And the songs of the Whales, the Humpbacks

      and Blues, O nature how you sing in the voice

      of your creatures.  And Humans sings operas

      in theaters that glow in the curtains and lights.

       

       

      Humanity, O hear the light within infuse

      sensations of a subtler kind.

      See the darkness go away

      and let our visions clear our minds,

       

       

      Opening into  p a n o r a m a s  yet unseen,

      the beauty in the World, ours to behold.

      Let nothing interfere with our right to see

      the depths of living in the soul of the Almighty.

       

       

      Build the b r i d g e to understanding

      and cross it with compassion.

      On the other side of life springs wisdom,

      love, beauty and forgiveness.

       

       

      All mankind, hear our plea.

      let go dark anchors in the mind,

      "sail free on the winds of time"

      and let our spirits soar enshrined

       

       

      upon the Earth,

      our planetary home, the World.

      Now may we see the peace awaiting

      the moment as we lay down our guard

       

       

      and come to conference tables

      all around the world,

      and make treaties together,

      the human sisters and their brothers.

       

       

      The time is now,

      Stop our madness and reason things out.

      wise up to ourselves, practice The Words:

      Forgiveness and Compassion.

       

       

      This is what the Universe teaches.

      remember what we forgot;

      the wisdom of old

      lives in our souls.

       

       

      The nations which war

      upon others with vengeance,

      exchange your deaths into peace NOW

      come on, just DO it.

       

       

      O it can't happen?

      The salons of hatred

      go down to their doom.

      Remember the Romans.

       

       

      War and history link humanity from

      one succeeding war after another,

      battles fought for territory,

      and civilization annihiLated.
