"IN TRUTH"

A few weeks a ago… on my birthday actually — I woke up reallyearly and started to write this…

I’ve woken up — it’s 4.01 AM and i want to go back to sleep again… Often I can lie very still with the pillow over my face all the way down to the bottom of my nose and this lulls me back into a slumber… but today it seems not. This mornings persistent mental activity insists my body wake up too.

My brain has been waking up earlier than usual for the last little while… overthinking… like it is now. It’s Sunday and I as born on a Sunday… in Kingston hospital in south west London….. SUNDAY 29 JANUARY… AT 4 AM … not just a coincidence? but a great omen??? though I'm not in London now — I’m with all my family in Currarong NSW.

My sister has been doing our “family tree”… most of my life I’ve believed that my Dad’s family heralded from Malta and Sicily... but this now appears to be untrue — it seems I am English thru and thru… yes — my grandad was born in Malta — but of English parents from Hull… one of whomseems to have disappeared entirely in America in the 1920’s… so much information… it forms and shapes us.

But often we’ve no idea of what is “true” — believing what we are told…or want to believe.

Since I was roughly 8 years old I've been familiar with ‘The Age of Aquarius”…  this song was much played growing up in my house and being an Aquarian i felt sort of lucky.

The cover art for “Hair” is permanently embedded in my memory. There is a lot of debate as to whether we are in the this “age” or not… at times in my life I've felt sure we are in this magical moment…in my late teens and twenties and again more recently…now abruptly interrupted.

So I'vejust looked it up on the internet and came across these very encouraging words at

http://www.2012-spiritual-growth-prophecies.com/age-of-aquarius.html

and I quote…

It will be up to us...all humanity...to decide which direction we take in the coming new age, the Age of Aquarius. It's in fact a choice...a personal one, as well as a collective one. Change always starts with the individual.

God after all in his infinite wisdom gave us Free Will. So, will we allow ourselves as a whole to be swallowed up in hate, greed, and prejudice? Or, are we tired of this yet? The other choice is to reach for the light and go in the new direction …of "love, brotherhood, unity and integrity……… All it takes is for you and I and the next guy to change our thinking and values to align with the coming new Age of Aquarius. Once the synergistic ball starts to roll, it will be unstoppable.

 

This very much cheered me up. 

Lets do it!!!!

Happy February World…..
