Good wishes for the tough year ahead. Behind the King’s compassionate/pastoral speech on a ‘Community of Communities’ there lie structural problems that require societal and global actions of prophetic nature that he is not constitutionally free to mention!! This is a small group’s exploration of those factors and designed for two voices in dialogue.
HUMANITY’S VOCATION 2023
We are here because the world we still imagine,
the one we had always counted on, is disappearing.
Creating Credit Crunch.
We have let the sun become cancerous, the planet hotter,
Accelerating Climate Change.
We have let children starve in imperial shadows
of yachts and usurious exploitation.
In Asia, Africa, Americas and even Sinking Islands everywhere.
There are too many planes in the sky, cars on the road,
On Runways, Roadways, Fuel Ever Flows.
We have codified, manufactured, marketed, the world itself.
Money no longer services what we now need,
To maintain the cyclical vitality of nature, the integrity of work.
End Corporate Serfdom.
We don’t want cheaper wood; we want living trees.
We don’t want engineered fruit,
Curtail Species Loss.
We want to see and smell food grown in neighbourhoods.
Abandon ‘Pig Business’.
A voice inside us, a communal memory, calls for our
Earth Identity, The Justice of a Global Economy.
We must end the blindness of self-indulgence,
Our Hubris, Egotism and Greed.
Against a rising tide of consumption, we are here to honour
All that is foundational, natural, inclusively human,
Set in our Sacred Gaia, its Integrity in Godliness.
We are here by the insistence of spirit, the authenticity of nature.
Earth Jurisprudence as Sovereign, Creativity’s Embracing Law.
If doubting truth in primacy of nature, try not breathing, and die.
We are each Living Stewards of The Earthly Commons.
We are not here to manipulate life with man-made laws.
End Usury, Theft of the Commons and Institutionalised Imperialism.
We are here to change humanity from the inside out.
In A Nonviolent, Counter-Imperial Mind-shift of Godliness.
THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL PROTEST.
IT IS AN UPRISING OF THE SOUL
AS A COMMUNITY OF COMMUNITIES, AN ECOLOGY OF LOVE.
Remain in Communion, in our inherent union with God.
Leaving the self that keeps us separate.
LOVE GOD AND EVERY NEIGHBOUR AS YOUR TRUE SOUL SELF.

Go well through 2023
