Plea for Earth Awakening – By Helena Kingwill
Beneath the surface,
the earth stirs into a spiral.
The alchemy of the turning gyre
Swirls like potion in Lillith’s cauldron
Deep down in the belly of earth
– a wisdom
Like a warm presence
Meanwhile, earth quakes, tsunami waves, wind storm rages
Dust to dust, earth to earth,
Natural cycle returning death to life.
Teaming with organisms.
My wish for the earth now,
Is that we could awaken before it’s too late.
Each of us has come from earthmotherbelly,
and to earth-body we will return,
In our individuality we remain in essence –
a microcosm of the whole.
When will we wake up from our self-importance
And realize the earth’s message?
Hear those earth-cells inside us,
Singing…crying, shaking each other
building to a critical point,
-a wave of realization
sweeping through us all-
even those at the helms of the power machines are affected.
There is something building, bigger than any of us, bigger than politics,
bigger than money.
A rainbow spiral beginning in the centre of the earth
rising up into all of humanity through a collective consciousness we all hold in our earth – cells.
Bringing us to all of our senses.
The realization of our response-abiltiy
The choice whether to step into that power is either
The wake up call
or the fall of all.
Awakening begins with each individual:
Taking responsibility for our own domestic waste,
our shadows, our shit- it’s compost. Work it.
Sewing the seeds. Harvesting the fruits.
More than enough to share.
We must unhook ourselves from the myth of materialism,
decide to take care of what we have, with gratitude.
Treat each other and-our earth-resources, with respect.
Create consciousness in all we use.
Allow Flow, through generous exchange-not hoarding and holding.
Because there is more than enough for everyone’s need.
But not for everyone’s greed.
Are we going to see, hear, touch feel, intuit a new way of being, or is it going to be
Our survival -versus the extinction of millions of species?
This is a call for change.
