Snowdrops, in spite of gale force winds (slightly blurry)
In a way, I find it sad when I read ancient texts and see how relevant they are today. When will we decide to change?
“As for you, son of man, your people are talking together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, saying to each other, ‘Come and hear the message that has come from the Lord.’ My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to hear your words, but they do not put them into practice. Their mouths speak of love, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain. Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice.”
Ezekiel 33:30-32 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus as messenger, who spoke to thousands in Palestine:
“It would have been better for them not to recognize My Voice, but to rise as the waves of the sea, as the deaf obstinate waves rushing at the (ridge of) rock that bars their way; (so) they would have defeated sin, abomination as high as a cliff. But the multitude that was listening to Me remained seated with their rulers and priests. I have waited (for them to rise), and now I rise instead of them.”
The Revelation of Arès 28/12
No force will wave a wand and recreate Eden, it is up to us to change, to become Good. The “abomination as high as a cliff” will be overcome by our everyday efforts to love, make peace, forgive, develop our spiritual intelligence, free ourselves from all prejudice. We must make Good contagious.
