The following excerpts are from J.R.R Tolkien’s essay collection: On Fairy Stories. 

His wisdom is always pertinent, especially during these times of vulnerability:

Message to the Starseed of the Earth

NOTE: This post was written a long time ago, but I recently stumbled upon it and felt like sharing it, as I find that this message is more relevant and urgent at this moment in time

By Patricia Cori

If you are not totally IN LOVE with this earth, you’re missing something immense, inestimable, eternal. You’ve stopped loving being here because you’ve stopped loving humanity and all we are capable of. You’ve been groomed to do that – to fear everything and everybody, to trust nothing, to cower in the face of all adversity, to sit at home, afraid to go to restaurants, cafes, the theater, trains, airplanes…. and to believe it’s unsalvageable. That the earth is DONE.

This is the program. It seeps in – we are so utterly bombarded we cannot avoid it. However, Mother Earth, the goddess, will outlive all the evils – all the sickness – and rise again, purified by our love and this immense light that cannot be dimmed.

Find her in the forests, the ocean, the mountaintops. Listen to wind, the bird song, the music and the rhythm. Ground yourself in this TRUTH – this beauty – LOVING how majestically Earth and all her beings are standing, learning new ways of being.

Some choose the darkness – that is their karma to bear.
We choose THE LIGHT.
We, my fellow starseed, CHOOSE THE LIGHT.

But before we can effectively change the world, we have GOT to believe and understand that we want to be here – we came here to DO THIS, and we are CAPABLE, POWERFUL AND VISIONARY in our intent.
Take off your shoes. Walk in a field. Feel the earth beneath you and know that she needs you now. And we need her.
Now – let’s make a miracle.
The buck stops here.
Nobody needs to do this for us – not even light beings from beyond. I hear people asking me “when will they come to help us” and my answer is and has always been:

“WE’RE THE ONES. We ARE light beings from beyond!”

Let’s help ourselves, our planet and humanity at large…
Spread the word and please share this post.

“You’re gonna make it after all”

There’s nothing quite as cheerful as the opening theme to The Mary Tyler Moore Show:

Watching this and listening to the music makes me so nostalgic for a time when we were more innocent. However that refrain, “you’re gonna make it after all,” reassures us, after all these years, that there are still brighter days ahead.

POETIC DISCO

DISCO BALL BY FLAVIA MASSON

DISCO BALL

Let’s dance on broken mirrors

In search of the invisible

Moving to phosphorescent sound

Around floating shards of light

In a slow motion confetti collision

From a traveling globe

Reflecting flames of glass

Illuminated Illusions

Flashes of movement from radiant spirits

Through the spinning optical twilight

The night is endlessly bright.
