Within almost every scripture, mythology and legend, whether the ancient Greeks, the Incas or the Hindus and Aborigines, there are extensive references to a time long ago when the earth was paradise. The Garden of Eden, Atlantis, Dreamtime are references to a time when the world was beautiful, new and perfect.
The World Cycle
starts with this Golden Age. This is heaven, not up in the clouds, but on Earth. This is a world of subtle (light) pure matter, rich in colour and sound, beyond our current imagination. At that time we souls are also fresh and new, so our consciousness is pure and totally positive. Joy, happiness and harmony are our natural experience and expression. This is the Golden Age of humankind, one land, one people, one language , one culture, one way of life, peace and harmony.
Living in the Golden Age
The Golden Aged world is beautiful and new. It is perfect. Sorrow is unknown. Matter is very light, not dense and heavy like it is now. Our bodies are not quite transparent but, compared with what we are now accustomed to, they are ethereal. There are fewer species of animals than now, and they are all as peaceful and perfect as we are.
The Perfect Garden
It is always springtime, and the weather is always perfect, not too hot or too cold, not too dry or too wet. Colour and sound are very rich. The movements of the leaves and the birds are very graceful and create a beautiful natural music that delights the ear.
Food is abundant and always growing all around us. We choose from the many varieties of edible flowers, fruits and nuts, all with tastes beyond our imagination. We drink fruit juices, easily obtained from the fruits by pressing them slightly. We do not eat green leafed vegetables, and agriculture is unknown. All of our needs are met naturally by nature. All creatures are vegetarian. There is no violence and no meat-eating.
We bathe in warm river water naturally fragrant from medicinal herbs. We bathe naked and unashamed. We are innocent. We are always perfectly clean, without making any effort.
We are creative. We are all artists. We entertain ourselves with music, painting, dancing, and playing games. We have musical instruments which 'play themselves' when touched.
We sleep lightly and easily. We awaken naturally without effort, early in the morning.
The Perfect Society
There is one land only, one nation, one people, one language, one culture, one way of life. We are free - there are no rulers or administrators. There is material wealth in abundance. There is no money, and no commerce. There are no courts, jails, judges or lawyers. There is no crime. There are no hospitals or doctors. There is no illness or disease. There is no religion. There is complete peace and harmony between all people. There is no concept of God, and no worship.
We are all naturally beautiful, with no ugliness or disfigurement.
There is no illness or disease, no experience of burden or pressure, no sorrow or suffering of any kind. We all live long lives, and die when we choose to, when the time is right. Then we just go to sleep. There is no premature death, and no hard work. We are not physical.
There is no vice: no lust, desire, ego, violence, anger, greed, or deceit. There is no consciousness of the body, no "shame". We are all completely pure and totally positive. We have no conscious knowledge: everything is intuitive and instinctive. We have the awareness of being souls, but this has no real meaning for us as we are unaware of any other form of consciousness. There is no feeling of status, superiority, or inferiority: we are simply playing roles in a grand drama. We live "in the moment". We are not intellectual.
Onward and Upward
The coming of the Golden Age
Like children playing all day in the woods who when night descends don't know where they are or how to get home, we feel an overwhelming sense of being lost. Our cries for help take many forms of expression: from drug abuse to crime, from outright violence to inner breakdown of mind and body. It is at this point that the spiritual parent, our higher self or soul, hears that cry and responds. At this time we learn the whole story: who we are, what we have come through, and where we are going. The nature of the soul is divine love and light (spiritual power). Divine love is unconditional. We learn that the past is also the future and the future is the past. From such a perspective we can joyfully expect the dawn, the beginning of a new Golden Age. For this to happen great changes must take place in the context of human affairs. The old must give way to the new: it is a process of change which must begin within the individual. This current age of extreme and sudden change is the time of regeneration. By realising the uniqueness of this time and seeing that night must transform into day, we can be free of the tension and fear caused by this dramatic and cataclysmic changeover.
The Time is Now
At this time the world is to be renewed with pure spiritual energy, and thus transformed to its original state of harmony. The cycle of humanity is like a spinning wheel which periodically needs a boost to keep it from slowing down to a stop: that boost is provided by a critical mass of us souls, a "host of angels", pooling our divine energies together - a myriad of helping hands all work together to perform the required regeneration. We can tune into our own divinity, and help with this task - indeed we must do so. Now is the time to re-establish connection with the seed of life - call it God, or our own inner divinity - that seed knows and contains the whole plan of future growth. The old tree of life is hollow and dying. Now is the time for the seeds to begin the role of being a root of the new tree. With knowledge and determination, we can play a part in the spiritual transformation and regeneration of this tired old world into the perfect heaven of the new Golden Age. Only our combined soul power can accomplish his task. For those who are willing helpers, the rewards are huge: we get to experience heaven on Earth.
