At the Edge of Faery and Earth

At the Edge of Faery and Earth

Many beautiful women, many different colors
Eyes, skin, hair, souls, auras, spirits, souls — All unique
All I love, in some way or another — More or less
Yet united by a common goal of making the world

Creating a better society and environment for the future
Sometimes I think I do not deserve to be in their company
I mostly just fight monsters — They create life and order
In chaos, magic in the midst of stagnation, balance

Time passes, generations of human families, on the borderlands
Between the higher and middle words, Earth and Faery

Gaia walks with me and tells me of her past lives
As we try our best to positively influence the course
Of history on Earth and in the material universe beyond

There are always dark forces that are jealous and resentful
Ignorant or sorrowful — Both inside us and in the worlds outside
Yet there is always hope for redemption in the conflict between
Good and evil — The sides are not always clearly defined

And there are always more than two sides between chaos and order
Left and right, male and female, light and darkness, all combined
The Tree of Life and Consciousness uniting the worlds above and below
The play of the cosmos, setting and living landscape, Eldren
In the in-between world, anything is possible — Here, home, and even beyond

From Childhood to Adulthood

From Childhood to Adulthood

Psychic powers -- Boys and girls floating in air
Not just in dreams, but in the material world, sometimes
Levitation -- Moving objects with one’s mind -- Force
Of will -- Influencing others’ thoughts and emotions
Their parents also have this gift, but they choose not
To practice it -- Which causes anger and resentment
But over time both the parents and the children compromise
The play of life continues onwards, and the new overtakes the old
While retaining the best of the old order -- Patterns of eternity

Dance of Life

Dance of Life
Sometimes it is hard to know
Who to follow, who to oppose
Which side of a conflict is correct
Most right, or at least less wrong
Each has another side, and another after that one
In the relatively distant future
Things are even more difficult
To understand how to choose
What is right, missing a hundred years
Context — Progress of history, change
Of ideas and ideologies, factions and organizations
Of power and authority — Leaving aside questions
Of how I am where I am now, at this time
More importantly, when I am — This new world
Offers almost undreamed of possibilities
Yet unknown dangers as well, but I cannot say
I regret waking up here and now, though I do miss
The people I left behind — As far as I can tell they are gone
But perhaps there is a way for me to see them again
If I can find out how I came to be here and now
One hundred years distant from everyone I once loved
Organizations of darkness, banal evil in service to horrible goals
And ideals — Extra-dimensional creatures without compassion or ethics
Or at least from a human perspective, except in the peculiar culture
Of the darkness beyond — Our Universe of Light and Darkness
Mingle together — Forms of life completely alien to us
Except perhaps in some of our nightmares, hells — Giant insects
Communities of organization without joy or art or love
At least from our perspective — Some form of love exists there no doubt
And the swirling chaos of apparently infinite darkness, with only a little
Light — And there are some figures of light and wisdom that have dealings
With the dark powers, for their own inscrutable goals, reasons beyond
Our understanding, for now — Out of darkness comes the light
Yet within the darkness continues in its almost infinite varieties
Forms of diversity — Doorways exist between our two worlds
Universes — Guarded by agents of order and chaos, light and darkness
Sometimes close to doorways between the higher realms of pure consciousness
And our Universe — Life and love have transcended all material barriers
Deep darkness of the void beyond our dimension of mixed light and darkness
Combines in the Dance of Life with Light, the five worlds of Eternal Love
The darkness frightens us and yet exhilarates us, providing a source
And destination for all that we do not like about ourselves, others
Our world and cosmos working out the complexity and simplicity of life
In the Universe we call home, in the perhaps infinite expanse of space
Material World — Where beauty in the spiral and circle of time plays out

Evolution Growth Change

Evolution Growth Change

Looking back at my past life
Mistakes that seemed unforgivable
Crises that threatened to destroy everything
Or so I thought — My place in the world
And Universe — Now seem small and inconsequential
In retrospect — Except in how they shaped my evolution
And development as a human being
Small and large — Sometimes in ways that I only now
Understand and only partially grasp

I can’t blame anyone else but myself
Yet I can explain by describing how others
Might have been wrong, at least in regards
To what would be best for me — Yet who can say
How even the smallest changes in one life
Might positively or negatively affect the future
Present, now — A trillion trillion combinations
Of moments and choices over the course of human
History — And my own — Even if I have only lived
Once, my soul — There is almost an infinity of alternatives
Parallel courses of history, all existing simultaneously
Until the present moment — And choice — Love and life
Time — In my own life and the life of the world — Universe

Who can tell if I am not in fact better for all my mistakes
My parents, grandparents, ancestors from all over the world
The ambiguity and uncertainty in my own life and mind today, tonight
Might not be such a terrible thing after all — As long as it does not
Cripple, the door to the void open too much, more than just a crack
Some evolution along with the involution, meeting in the present moment
Future present for every living being sharing the world of possibilities
Growth and change, spiral life, and the arrow and circle of time
The maps in my head can be useful but discovery and exploration
Landscape of my mind and environment, greater and more wondrous
Than even my dreams — The maps help me when I get lost
Sometimes even helping me find the right path, or at least realize
I was on the wrong one in the past, and I can choose a different one
Perhaps even one from a long time ago, in the future past
That is yet new to me now — As long as I am moving forward
With an open heart and mind, in balance with my true self and the cosmos
Nature, love — The forces of order, chaos, and balance between the two
The Universe of Universes and the world we all inhabit, one of many
I am content and maybe even happy, for now — I must train myself
To be alright with the uncertainty and productive chaos of the world
That can be a blessing and not just a curse — As long as I keep
Trying to find some kind of order here, there — Truth within
Myself, if I have the right keys to understanding the all in all
The world and my place in it — Life continues ever onwards

As long as life continues on — And we learn from our mistakes
Become better stewards of the Earth and Air and Water — Soul
Of nature, fire of spirit — Humanity — We are only at the beginning
Of our history as a species, only limited by our imagination as a species
Imaginations or lack thereof — Our petty rivalries, ancient quarrels
Among groups of people, desire for power over others, outdated ideas
Ideologies of rigid control or complete freedom without consequences
No order at all — Out of balance with ourselves and nature
Yet we are learning — The old ways that no longer work fade away
With time and evolution of the human mind and spirit towards the source
Giving consciousness, room to new ways of organizing life and spirit
Some so old that they are completely foreign to us, some completely new
Ancient and future paradigms that can allow us to live in harmony
With ourselves and the Universe as one entity experiencing itself, ourself
Becoming aware of all aspects of existence and reality — Life and love
No greed or lust for power over one another and the planet
Belonging to the land, water, air, and sky, more than the other way around

Using our intelligence and wisdom to perform a sacred duty of helping
Life to flourish in ever more diverse and beautiful forms on Earth
And when we are ready, planets beyond our own solar system
Stars and galaxies far out in the infinite darkness, blue and white
Calling to us and keeping us company at night — Giving our sun a break
Dimensions and worlds within the deepest parts of our souls, of stars
And in the vast emptiness of space and time, yet almost bursting with light
Meaning and light even in the deepest darkness, the spark of life
Uniting and bringing together disparate individual souls
Throughout the Cosmic Ocean — Binding and bridging our Universe
With each part of itself, realities beyond this physical realm
Dimension, parallel universe — Doorways of consciousness
We can access with the right keys, and the knowledge of where they are
Awareness of the multiple forms of life, light, love everywhere
Inside us and outside our souls, all around us — Beyond
There is always more to discover and explore, always more
Beyond and within our own mind, body, and spirit — Our souls
Connected to the universal cosmic consciousness and awareness

Sailing Through Time on a Cosmic Ocean of Eternal Love

Sailing Through Time on a Cosmic Ocean of Eternal Love

Time travel, inhabiting my future self
Learning about alien species visiting Earth
Changing history by following along with myself
Leaving clues and signs for me to find later, earlier
Creating a small army of freedom fighters
Anarchists, socialists, communists united by vision
Of a world free from hunger, injustice, oppression
Taking the best of what the aliens have to offer for humanity
Replacing the old order and hierarchies of power
In the shared goal of making humanity a galactic citizen
Universal belonging, working for peace, justice, stability
And innovation — A bright future of light, life, love for all
Here, and beyond in the vast emptiness of space, other worlds
Transforming humanity’s basest instincts into higher callings
Dedication to truth, perfection, understanding of complexity
Instead of war, violent conflict, extreme competition beyond play
Shared resources, knowledge, wisdom — An Utopia — Life without fear
Problems we take for granted now, in the past, before
The Others come, who are yet to come, yet always here
Bringing new knowledge and wisdom that is yet old
Kept safe by elders of ancient cultures, carried on by future generations
Waiting for the day when they could share with all
Humanity suddenly confronted with the reality
That we are not ever truly alone in the Universe
For better or worse, and there are new, better ways of doing things
Organizing ourselves not only to survive
But thrive, and become full members of the community
Of the Universe of Universes — All times and places linked
By the knowledge and wisdom of the Elder Races
Guides and sometimes exploiters of the younger ones
Humanity — We must evolve and transform ourselves
Into something greater and more beautiful than we can imagine
Undreamed of, except by a few — The ones with love and peace
In their hearts and minds, those who are the storytellers
Artists, poets, philosophers — Leaders of thought and feeling
Those of gentle soul and also fierce passion for change and progress

Changes

Changes

Looking out my window at the treeline, from past to future
What once was diminished by imbalance and progress
Now lives free and true, a century of uninhibited growth
And flowering — All of the people I loved are gone
Taken by time and circumstance and the promise
Of a better life far away, in the Mega Cities and even beyond Earth
The mistakes of the 20th century have been fixed
Balance between humanity and nature has been restored
My home is a paradise on Earth, and most every change has been good
Yet I can’t help but wish that I could see some of my old friends
Earth Family — Soul mates, especially the ones I dream about

The World of the Future

The World of the Future

Advanced technology and more wisdom to go with
The ever changing human spirit, that yet remains
The same essential nature, better than it used to be
Better than things once were overall — The Hero
And Heroine — Come into the world to save us all
Yet we are all heroes, literally and figuratively

I awake and it is the future — One hundred years have passed
While I slept — Now I am in a world I barely recognize
Though the landscape remains essentially unchanged
Everything else is different: people, buildings, transportation
Not just in the Mega Cities, but also where I live at the edge
Of the misty mountains and its temperate rainforest
What once was a national park and is now a global one
Still the most diverse collection of communities of life
In the world — An ecosystem held in trust for the future
Generations to come, that have already come, for me
A traveler from the distant past unaware of how I came to be
Here now in the 22nd century of the common era

And outside the global park, as well as inside the borders
Free, plentiful, and clean energy available for everyone
The Sun, Wind, Earth, Water, and Cosmic forces of Sky
Harnessed for the benefit of all, with no cost or restriction
For those who use energy for heating, traveling, growing food
Essentially a paradise compared to the past, yet with some problems
Even in Utopia — But no hunger, poverty, or institutional injustice
A global government with local control through democratic means
And different styles of living in the hundreds of Mega Cities
Spread out over Planet Earth, unique yet unified by common interest
Peace and stability, order within the chaos of life and ever-increasing
Knowledge and wisdom about life, the universe, and the cosmos beyond

And in our space-time ship that I am lucky enough to have access to
Our first priority is to our home planet, and the stars and planets in our galaxy
And the stars and planets in galaxies beyond our own
Home — In all dimensions, universes, worlds connected
Parallel, alternate, pocket within and yet outside
The physical universe we call home
Even though I can go back to the world I once knew
The time of great transition at the beginning of the 21st century
I am not ready yet — There are so many beautiful and amazing things
Left to see, learn, and do in this new world of the future, yet now present
