PJ.It's not much better on our side of the pond. Bad things from the past rearing their ugly heads. Monday is a March for Humanity. In a few weeks, a terrible "gathering" disguised as "anti-illegal immigration", but no one is buying it. It's hate groups, plain and simple. Why are hate groups allowed freedom of speech? I can't understand it. In a town where I spent much of my childhood, a town whose people probably did more harm to my psyche than any others. I'm happy not to live in that town now and haven't visited for more than 20 years. I signed a petition to stop it, but I feel as though I should go there and stand against the hatred. Hopefully they will just decide not to do it. Where is our next Martin Luther King, Jr. His work is not even close to being finished

This is the Happy Easter thread. Happy Easter to all, belated as it may be. Happy Spring, then. The world needs a miracle. My best to you all xoxox

In your eagerness to shoot me down in flames and hack me and my work to pieces, none of you recognised my intention behind the opening of the new thread. I came to bring new hope to those who are disheartened and scared about the present state of our world. The article ‘Reflections On Hope’ was a loud and clear message that only recently came to me – yes, intuitively from my Highest Self. I was trying to share it with you and at the time it felt to me that this was

Doing The Right Things

People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centred.
You don’t have to like them, but love them anyway!

They are all part of your spiritual family.
They are part of you and you are part of them.
They may not yet know it, but you being wiser,
Love them anyway!

People may project their own ulterior motives onto you,
And accuse you of having them.
Rest safe in the knowledge that the Universe
Knows their hearts as well as yours.
Do good anyway!

If being successful means that we can only win
False friends and real enemies.
Succeed anyway!

The good we do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do it anyway!

What could have taken years of building up,
Can be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway!

People who are in need of our help,
May attack us whilst we are trying to help them.
Help anyway!

Give the world the best that is within you,
And should it be rejected, do not stop giving.
Give anyway!

The Universal Law of Karma ensures that what we send
Into the world, has to return to us.
Give of your best and only the best is sure to return!

I wonder whether Marty kept out of it. Could that be because he is my friend and the only one who grasped the meaning of the message I was trying to bring the UMS, its staff, members and visitors? It was my response to messages about the things that are presently taking place in our world that were posted here in response to my Easter message.

Trying to avoid stepping on anyone’s toes by opening of the new thread, I seem to have stepped on everybody’s. Please accept my sincere apologies for that.

With love – Aquarius

For those who truly are wise ones, here is my message once more:

Reflections On Hope

Rays Of Wisdom - Words Of Hope And Encouragement - Two Messages Of Hope

Through the German poet and philosopher, historian and playwright, Friedrich von Schiller, 1759–1805, the following message of hope was given to our world in troubled times. Its German title is ‘Hoffnung’ – hope. Two different versions of it are presented here. The first one is a masterly translation by a very special friend of mine, who wishes to remain nameless.

Hope
We speak and dream so very much
Of a future in the Sun.
Towards that happy golden goal
We struggle and we run.
The world gets old, then young again –
Still hope is humankind’s refrain.

Hope guides us into life’s great flow
And flutters over cheerful youth,
Enthuses us with magic glow,
In old age too remains our truth
And in the grave that ends our ways
We plant fresh hope for other days.

No vague or empty promise here,
By a foolish mind begot
The heart proclaims it loud and clear:
‘We’re born for a better lot!’
And what the inner voice makes plain
The hopeful heart does not disdain.

Friedrich von Schiller

Six pointed Star

The second translation is combined with a new interpretation of Schiller's poem. It was written intuitively, the same as all my writings, with the assistance of my inner teacher and Highest Self. It’s how I imagine Schiller would write his poem if he were here with us and writing it, now.

Hope
Being aware that our
Thoughts and words create our reality,
Wise ones of our world make a good habit of
Frequently talking and dreaming about the
Better and happier days that are ahead for the Earth.
They visualise a new golden age of plenty,
When suffering and pain,
Hunger and thirst, sickness and death,
Wars, violence and crime are unknown.

To help us find our way back
Into our true nature and home with them,
When the time for doing so has come,
The Angels and Masters around the throne of God,
Who are in charge of us and our world,
Have programmed hope into
The consciousness of every human being
And the collective one of our world.

On its evolutionary journey our planet has grown old,
But not without constantly renewing itself.
And that’s how down the ages our race
Could steadfastly hold onto its dream of Mother Earth
As a peaceful and harmonious place.
That’s also how it comes about that
Hope accompanies us into each new lifetime.
It supports us throughout our days and
Bewitches us with the radiance of its magical light.

No matter how old and weary we may get,
Hope never leaves us and dies,
Because it has been firmly implanted in
In our hearts and souls.
And even though earthly lifetimes
Inevitably end in the grave,
Hope belongs to our spirit and soul.
No-one can take it from us.
It accompanies us into the our other world
And we bring it with us into each new earthly lifetime.
That’s why it is much more than a flattering delusion
And an elixir that only flows from foolish minds.

Listening within, wise ones hear
The small still voice of the living God,
Who for a long time has been waiting and hoping
To come alive in ever more human hearts.
If you listen carefully, you too can hear it whisper:
‘For something greater and holier than earthly life
You human beings are created.
A high and holy destiny awaits each one!’
This is how everyone’s own Christ nature
Eventually reveals its presence
As the only authority in the whole of Creation
That never misleads or betrays our faith and trust in it.

Hope is the energy of the locomotive
That has always been pulling the train of
The evolutionary forces of the whole of Creation
Forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life.
This provides wise ones with the certainty
That Earth life really will get better.
Their knowledge helps them to shed
Their fears of the future and the unknown.
It enables them to peer beyond the ends of their noses
And perceive the higher and highest realities of
The spiritual background of their earthly existence.
And that equips them with the wings the need
For lifting themselves and their whole world
Above the things that, for Karmic reasons,
To this day have to happen there.

Knowing that God’s laws are love and evolution,
Maybe you can see for yourself now that
Thoughts and dreams of the new golden age
Are by no means vague hopes.
They are certainties that based on a deep inner well of knowledge
That our world will neither sink into chaos nor vanish altogether,
And that it is but a question of time
When our new peaceful world emerges.

The more you and I think and dream about it,
The more quickly and smoothly the transformation proceeds.
Never forget that when we do our best,
God and the Angels are always happy to do the rest.
This is particularly true in this case,
Because it is what God’s great plan of life
Has in mind for us and our world in any case.
It will be interesting to watch how long it till take
Until the last remnants of that which is
Evil and ugly in our world has evolved and changed
Into something good, right and beautiful.
And that applies to all objects,
Animate and inanimate, great and small.’

Friedrich von Schiller
Freely translated by Aquarius

Dear Aquarius

It is certainly not my intention to shoot anyone down in flames here, neither you nor anyone else and I am sorry that you see it that way. Moreover your work has had ample space on the board over many years so there is no evidence of it being 'hacked to pieces', quite the contrary: this thread itself being a good example.

I had also held back for a good while before doing anything very much not least because, as I said yesterday, I wanted to hear others' responses , both to my suggestions and thoughts as well as to responses to your posts.

I am not sure how helpful it is to keep reposting material that has been reposted before, without intervening comment.

My interpretation is that DocJ (and me) were simply stating and reaffirming what we take to understand by the function and place of this discussion board in the UMS context.

To repeat and put plainly, the discussion board, sponsored by UMS, is not here to serve as a platform for anyone to use to promote their own beliefs or world-view in a way that does not respectfully permit of any disagreement or alternative.

DocJ suggested a disclaimer for Guests to use (which you appear not to have taken on). I had suggested some of kind of word count (something I seem to recall Marty had once before floated but never followed through)

We have also discussed many times before, although in slightly different ways, such concepts as 'Masters' and 'everyone's own' 'Christ nature' and found them uncertainly - if not contentiously- located here, especially in a thread about Easter, and its' special, sacred and manifold complexity.

I have put an alert on this thread for other Moderators' reflection. In the meantime this is also Frozen but I would very much welcome any views on the topics discussed but in a new thread please.

Kind regards

Ophiucus

We are still a little chilly down here in GA. Spring pops up every now and then and then we are back in the 30's and 40's again. It was a long drawn out winter, now I don't know what you call this in between time. I want to dig in the dirt!!!
