And I see humanity upon the globe Humanity going about its daily activities Working, playing, living in their homes I see humanity all over the globe Humanity in all its various colors and ethnicities and different styles of dress And yet I note how remarkably similar their activities are They work; they play; they rest with their families in their homes This is true for all of humanity all over the globe And I marvel at this commonality How alike we are! I think to myself. How surprisingly alike! And then I see a few individuals look up startled toward the Heavens They have heard something; they have sensed something; they know not what They shrug it off, no matter, and return to their routine And now I see more people look nervously about them They are seeing what they do not comprehend Are others seeing what they are seeing? They do not dare ask for fear of being labeled insane They remain quiet with their fears They remain quiet about what they think they see And I see that this is happening to more and more individuals across the globe There are an ever increasing number of individuals who see What they have been taught is un-seeable What they have in fact been taught does not exist And some of them are able to reconcile what they see Within the framework of their current belief about reality But many are not, and these many grow increasingly nervous They fear for their sanity They speak not to others of what they perceive But they do, in isolation, turn to books To book after book after book Hoping to find an explanation for what it is they are seeing And while some books give them a modicum of reassurance There is no book, none that they can find, that explains their experience Not to their satisfaction And their unease grows And many turn to psychiatrists who medicate them And for some the medication dulls them and the visions decrease At least for a little while And then come back stronger and more powerful than before And now they are truly frightened And they turn to their psychiatrists for yet stronger medication And the psychiatrists are more than willing to comply And the list of symptoms of unease that these individuals Who would medicate their visions away grows and grows and grows Until they are completely dependant Upon their ever growing list of ever stronger medications Just to make it through the day And they are dulled by their medications And eventually the medications are strong enough Are taken in large enough quantities That the individuals see their visions no more Or if they do, they do so with detachment It is no more than a movie they are seeing And they go through their days in a stupor Mindlessly putting one foot in front of the other Trying to maintain, trying to maintain, trying to maintain And for a while they do For a while they do For a while they do And then one night the whole thing comes crashing down in on them And they are left on their knees crying hysterically and in terror For they realize that what they are seeing is real It is real; it is real; it is real And they know not what to make of it No, they do not They have no frame of reference None at all For the veils are thinning you see The veils between the planes of reality are beginning to thin They have been thinning for some time now And this phenomena first manifested with the sense of Hearing The people called it many things They called it channeling; they called it receiving They called it their intuition; they called it their inner knowing And hearing was the first sense That perceived the thinning of the veils Between the different planes of reality And the people who heard were not frightened For it was a silent, inner knowing Nothing they could not handle And many in fact did quite well for themselves with this new facility Writing books which found an audience And they were pleased And they were excited And it was fun Almost like a game But the other senses eventually also began to perceive the thinning of the veils And when the other senses got involved Things began to feel less like an exercise in words And they began to feel more experiential These weren’t merely words that one could hear and write anymore These weren’t merely words that one could read and find interesting anymore These were actual experiences! Some people noticed their sense of Smell sensitive to the thinning of the veil They would actually smell the odor of evil And be alerted that something was off They were doing something wrong Or they were in the wrong place at the wrong time Or something malevolent was coming their way And in time these individuals learnt to trust their sense of smell For it was uncannily accurate And as soon as they perceived the odor of evil They immediately stopped what they were doing And looked around and listened within And determined what it was that they needed to change And their sense of smell would tell them When they had successfully accomplished the necessary change For the odor of evil would no longer pervade their nostrils And the individuals breathed a sigh of relief Yes, they had escaped this particular danger They might not even ever know what this particular danger was But that they had been spared danger they KNEW For they had learned the hard way to ignore their sense of smell at their own peril But like hearing, smelling was not frightening People could hear and people could smell And yet continue about their day’s routine in confidence Truly not expecting anything to really change Despite all the books and all the words that had been written and published Why they were just words. They didn’t really mean anything. Just words The sense of Touch also became heightened As some people began to perceive their bodies tingling, almost vibrating They could feel their skin and the air immediately above their skin vibrating It was though the air above and around their skin Was actually part of their own body And this was an interesting phenomena, quite fun actually, this tingling It made one feel more alive somehow And it certainly did not interfere with their daily lives. No, it did not But now, but now, but now The sense of Sight began to perceive the thinning of the veils And now, and now, and now This was not a game anymore These were not just interesting, even fascinating words in a book anymore This was no longer an early warning system, an intuition anymore For when their sense of sight became activated What the people saw truly frightened them They were confused They were confused They were confused And yes, they had to admit it, they were frightened For the range of what they saw was truly staggering From the depths of hell to the heights of Heaven They slowly, surely started to see And it was too much It was just too much Too much for a person to grasp Too much for a mind to wrap its understanding around For nothing had prepared them for what they were beginning to see Nothing, nothing, nothing Not their religions, not their framework of reality Not their knowledge of science, of physics No, nothing at all had prepared them for what they were beginning to see No not even the books that had been coming out in the previous years by those whose hearing had been activated Even those books had not warned them of the enormity and range and vastness of what they were seeing And they were seeing so much! So very much! Too much! Who wanted to see so much No, it was too much It was much too much And some people chose insanity Over trying to understand the new reality facing them And other people chose suicide Over trying to understand the new reality facing them For it was truly a new and completely different reality that was facing them And they were not prepared, no they were not, no they were not And other people chose to sit in their rooms, by themselves And quietly contemplate what it was they were seeing And these people asked their god to explain to them what it was they were seeing And these people listened to the still small voice within As their god explained to them, in as much detail as they could absorb What it was they were seeing And these people were left stunned Could it be Could it possibly be Could such a thing possibly be now occurring For the veils between the different planes of reality were thinning you see And one could see One could see One could see What one was capable of seeing And some people saw demons And other people saw monsters and snakes And other people saw the dead And other people saw planes of reality not too different from their own And yet different enough to recognize that it was not their own There was so much to see! There was too much to see! And who could have thought that there was so much to the universe And yes of course the scientists had been talking for years About parallel universes and different timelines But those had been merely words Just words! And now to see the reality behind these words It was awesome to behold It was terrifying to behold It was exciting beyond words Depending on who was doing the looking For yes of course, the reaction to this new phenomena differed greatly Depending upon the individuals involved What was most amazing about this phenomena Was how it was not talked about for a very, very long time Even the people who had been writing books that they had ‘channeled’ That they had ‘received’, that they had somehow ‘known’ Even they did not talk about what they were seeing No, almost no one spoke of it For almost all thought they, and they alone Were seeing what they were seeing The self-imposed isolation of the people was truly remarkable And slowly, slowly, slowly Gradually, gradually, gradually Those who allowed for it Those who contemplated their visions And asked their god for understanding And listened to and heard their god’s response Slowly, gradually, surely These people began to understand what it was they were seeing And they felt great relief For truly it is a great feeling of relief to know that you are in fact not insane And the people saw the truth of their own lives And that was perhaps the most painful seeing of all Seeing the truth, the honest and full truth of who they have been And what they have done with their lives And again, some people were not able to endure the pain of such truth And chose to suicide And others chose to face the truth of who they had been And ask their god for guidance as to how to improve themselves And lived But it was seeing the reality That was increasingly manifesting all around them That was staggering Why it just staggered the imagination The variety, the complexity, the wide range to life in the universe For truly Earth had become a small place As the people contemplated all around them ALL And there was so much ALL to see Yes there really were demons and one could actually see them And yes there really were angels and one could actually see them And somehow, somehow, the people lost the taste for their daily routines Their work, their play, their very homes no longer interested them For they could all too well see the insignificance of such In the face of this large, mighty, and complex universe And though the people lost their taste in what they had been doing They truly did not know what to do next How does one live in this new universe One in which demons and angels and humans co-exist One in which communication between all 3 are possible How does one function How does one act How does one approach this new universal order How? How? How?
