“In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present. ”
I am excited this week to share with you a wonderful excerpt from The New Revelations that I happened upon the other day as I was re-reading this extraordinary text. This passage answers a question that I am asked all the time, and I just knew as soon as I chanced upon it that I wanted to put it in this space, so that you could be touched by it!
Here it is...enjoy!
I have to admit that I always did find it hard to believe God would tell people they may not intermarry, or that women must not allow any portion of their body to be seen in public, or that couples may not use contraceptives, or that men must wear beards.
I never did understand why God felt he had to give human beings so many orders.
I don't. I don't have to give orders to anyone, and I've never done so.
No. And I never will.
You never will? You mean that we will never know what God really wants?
Why? Why would you do this to us?
Do what to you?
Why would you tell us to follow God's law, to obey your wishes, and then not tell us what you really want?
Because there is nothing that I do want. And this is what you cannot understand or refuse to accept.
There is nothing that God wants or needs.
God demands nothing, commands nothing, requires nothing, compels nothing. Teach this in your seminaries and your madrasas.
God neither orders nor requests, insists nor expects, anything. Tell this to your young.
I am the Author of Everything. I am the Creator and the Created. There is nothing that is that I am not. I have no need to give orders to anyone.
To whom would I give orders? There is no one to command but me. I am the All In All. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. And whom would I punish were my orders not kept? Would I use my right hand to slap my left? Would I bite my nose to spite my face?
Your teachers and your doctors of law, your priests and your ulamas, tell you that God is to be feared, for He is a vengeful God. You are to live in fear of God's wrath, they say. You are to tremble in His presence. Your whole life you are to fear the terrible judgment of the Lord. For God is "just," you are told. And God knows, you will be in trouble when you confront the terrible justice of the Lord. You are, therefore, to be obedient to God's commands. Or else.
Most of you, therefore, spend much of your adult lives searching for the "right way" to worship God, to obey God, to serve God. The irony of all this is that I do not want your worship, I do not need your obedience, and it is not necessary to serve me.
These behaviors are the behaviors historically demanded of their subjects by monarchs--egomaniacal, insecure, tyrannical monarchs at that. They are not Godly demands in any sense, and it seems remarkable that the world hasn't by now concluded that the demands are counterfeit, having nothing to do with the needs of Deity.
Deity has no needs. All That Is is exactly that: all that is. It therefore wants, or lacks, nothing--by definition.
If you choose to believe in a God who somehow needs something--and has such hurt feelings if He doesn't get it that He punishes those from whom He expected to receive it--then you choose to believe in a God much smaller than I. You truly are Children of a Lesser God.
No, my children, please let me assure you again, through this present writing, as I have done in writings past, that I am without needs. I require nothing.
Then you haven't given us "orders? "
No. It was human beings who felt they had to give human beings orders, in order to keep order. And the best way they knew how to get people to follow orders was to say that they came directly from God.
There were also those who sincerely believed that they were receiving directives from God about how life should be lived, and what they said that they received was passed on by others in good faith. Yet this does not mean that what was passed on was always accurate, nor does it mean that the person who claims to have been the original recipient of these revelations was infallible.
Any more than this book is infallible.
That is correct. That is exactly right. Any claim of infallibility for this book would be inaccurate.
It would be inaccurate to say that this book is accurate.
So this book is accurate when it says that it is inaccurate.
That's clever, and that's another yes.
So if it's inaccurate, why should I believe it?
You should not believe it. You should apply it and see what works.
Incidentally, put every other writing that claims to be a communication from God to the same test.
Wow, I love that passage. I hope that you will copy it and paste it up on your refrigerator, clip it and send it to friends, post it on Facebook, get it out there for all the world to see!

New Earth Rising: The Solar Eclipse of July 1st
by Celia Fenn
July 1, 2011
The Awakening "Rose Lines" and the North/South Flows on the Global Grids
I am sure that you will all agree that the energies have been exciting but pretty difficult in this last month as we have passed through the first Solar Eclipse, and then the Total Lunar Eclipse. Now we approach the culminating eclipse of this series, the Partial Solar Eclipse on the 1st of July.
The Re-activation of the Stonehenge and Giza complexes were incredible alignments for the Planet, but this Eclipse coming up will be something of a "grand finale" to this series of Eclipses.
Firstly...it falls in Cancer...in the Energy of the Goddess, the Divine Feminine. Secondly....it will be visible only in the far Southern regions of Antarctica, in line with Southern Africa, as you can see from this map that I borrowed from www.spaceweather.com:
In the New Earth Grid System, the power flows from South to North and from North to South. The Flow that is known as the "Rose Line" flow or the Divine Feminine Flow/Goddess Flow or current, moves from the Southern Pole area of Antarctica and northwards along the meridian lines that are called the "Rose Lines".
The most active of these "Rose Lines" at the moment is the South/North and North/South flow through the Americas...from Antarctica and up through Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia and then along the Andes, through Central America and up through the Rockies to the Northern Polar Circle. This is the territory of the Eagle and the Condor, and as they unite to fulfil the prophecies of the end times, we are experiencing huge Transformation on the Planet.
At this Eclipse, the energy will activate a new Flow of the Rose Line...up from Antarctica and through Southern Africa and North through the Middle East and into Europe and north to the Northern area of Finland and Russia. This Flow of Divine Feminine energy on the Grids will also create a powerful surge of Spiritual Kundalini energy in this part of the Globe.
Antarctica is the crystalline white land, it is the equivalent of the Pineal Gland in the Human Body, and it receives the Light Codes from the Galactic Center in their purest and most powerful form. These Codes enter the grids and are sent to those points that are like the pituitary glands, and these points send them to the entire Planetary Body. These "Rose Nodes" as I call them, are Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia including Chile and Argentina, Southern Africa and New Zealand, Tasmania and Australia. These areas are "coming online" to be the Light Connection points for the Divine Feminine Light Code energy as it transmits from the Galactic Center.
For me, this will be an exciting time. I will be welcoming this Grid Activation from Cape Town...probably the closest land point to the Eclipse activations! In August, I will be travelling north to Finland and up into Lapland, about as far north as it is possible to go within the territory of this new Rose Line Grid Flow. I will "flow" with the energies and celebrate with all that I meet!
But, you may ask, what is the deeper meaning of this activation and the eclipse. Firstly, it will activate new Spiritual energies deep into the Earth in the areas of Africa, Europe and the Middle East, bringing energies of "awakening" to these areas. The Sacred Rose and the Grail Codes that are associated with Yeshua, Mary Magdalene and the Cosmic Christ energy will be fully activated. In addition, the Indigenous peoples of the Regions will feel the energy of Rebirthing and Renewal...as the North and the South are joined into Oneness in the Flow of the Rose Energy.
This process has been under way for some time in South and North America, where I have had the privilege to work and do ceremonies. The highlight for me was in 2008 when I led a Full Moon Ceremony working with the Jaguar Goddess with 200 people at Iguazu Falls on the Argentine/Brazil border...all part of this powerful activation of the Flows of the North and South and the meeting of the Eagle and the Condor according to the prophecies.
At this point, it is good to remember that the point of the Prophecies is the healing of the Earth and the re-establishment of "right relationship" and balance with Nature. At this time of the Solar Eclipse on the 1st of July, these are the issues that will be highlighted and emphasized....coming into Right Relationship.....with ourselves, with our fellow humans and with the Planet and all who live on her. It is the time to seek Harmony and Truth and the Light that flows on the Rose Lines!
To celebrate this moment, I offer you a beautiful experience...a film that was made by a modern day Shaman and Filmaker who lives in Bogota, Colombia. His name is Luis Condor Mejia and his film speaks of the energies of this Transformation. It is called "Prophecy : The Last Message" and it is in two parts:
