Earth transforms now and then
dramatically or little by little
when land masses slip and slide.
We’re just along for the ride.
We’re each here for a little while
as individuals and as species too.
Sometimes we even return
and continue our Great Adventures
evolving fast or slow as we do,
Star-Seeded again by Life
both here and by Life beyond
our Planet, Alien Interventions,
some of which we fear
as hostile or even divinely benign.
We’re all just passing through
this realm of joy and pain,
Souls on a Great Adventure,
Life’s experience to gain.
Some seek comforts in safe havens,
others seek danger to feel alive.
Some feast on their desires,
others struggle to survive.
Divine Creations, we evolve
by thought and deed and consequence,
paths well worn or those less travelled.
Attitude rules Circumstance.
Some are challenged by misfortune,
loss of all that’s valued here,
stripped of everything but Spirit,
Love expressed in those held dear.
We weep our own and others’ losses,
seeking answers as we pray.
None can judge the Soul’s Agenda
as we journey on our way.
We’re all just passing through.
A Unity Diverse…
We’re Life in many forms
throughout the Universe.
Here for a little while,
we travel in and out of Time
exploring Life Itself,
the mundane and sublime.
Our Lives are wondrous Journeys.
We challenge ourselves to grow,
exploring all conditions
through which we come and go.
Nothing here is forever.
We must leave it all behind.
Back to Source All Beings go,
beyond the limits of Mind-
beyond boundaries of Soul-
back to the Great Oneness we go,
that Oneness we call Heaven-
the God-Light and our True Home.
From and to Home we come and go
playing out our Great Adventures,
transforming Life as we know it,
creating realities loving or fearful
in multiple Timelines and Roles
or making another Free Will Choice-
Not Going Out and Staying Home.
