Message from the Angels

Awaken and arise little ones, for the time has come to prepare and propel the vision of change that is upon the Earth. Do not covet fear among the chaos but stand true, and you will be upheld by the light beings who have come here as promised to guide you through these momentous times.
Blessings upon you.

The message came to my friend at a concert last Wednesday at the Methuen Memorial Music Hall. This remarkable structure in Methuen Massachusetts was built by philanthropist and art lover Edward Francis Searles in 1909, himself an organ player and instructor, to house the great German concert organ that was purchased to be the pride of Boston in 1856, and installed in 1863 in what would become known only as Boston’s Symphony Hall. This first concert organ in America was admired for only a couple decades before going out of fashion and put into ignoble storage to make room for the orchestra players themselves. Searles lucked into purchasing the organ, originally costing $60,000, for just $1,500. To this day it remains a magnet for world class organists whose remarkable concerts are attended by a handful of those in the know (so now you know too).

After the angels visibly danced for “Sonata in D major” by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, a darker piece by Franz Liszt was played called “Variations on ‘Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen’”. This was offered by organist Stephen Roberts of East Haven, CT, in homage to the instrument itself, since Liszt’s piece was completed the same year as the organ’s installation (1863) and Liszt would have known of the great organ’s construction. The piece was composed by Liszt to mourn the death of his eldest daughter Blandine, and draws upon the cantata by J. S. Bach from 1714 that means “Weeping, lamenting, worrying, fearing” and depicts the affliction of the Christians.

While the powerful music may draw one into the chaos of suffering, the message from the angels clearly calls upon human light workers to release the past and assert for the great future now at hand, that bright and glorious life of the Soul to which this blog of the New Earth is now dedicated.

The photograph reveals the remarkable nine-pointed Chinese balloon flower which blossomed in my garden over the July 4th period when this blog was begun. These joyful plants normally work in the symmetry of pentagons, as the other blossums and bud clearly show. I have never before seen a mutation of more than five, much less this miraculous nine, which clearly evoked for me the 900th birthday of Hildegard von Bingen, the year that she came to me so powerfully that to this day I struggle to incorporate her blessed energy. I believe my guide and kindred spirit Carl Linnaeus would have been pleased as well at this auspicious turn of nature's hand in Platycodon grandiflorus.

God grant me the heart big enough to give thanks for all the blessings I have to receive, and the courage to guide more of my brothers and sisters home. There is unfathomably so much love at the center of the heart of this Universe, that I am compelled to tell you all how it is that this love most especially knows and includes you, that very same long-suffering you that never dared to dream that it was so loved, but always had to hope it was true.

It is true. Rest assured it is true.
