Learning to Walk as an Earth Elder
What Earth Eldership Looks Like
“I see men as trees, walking”
Earth Eldership is what will give your life its true passion. It will engage your ordained spiritual responsibility of humbly comprehending what your dimensional lives have really consisted of, of accessing their wisdom in the humility of peaceful prayer, and becoming one with them by recognising that you are neither more nor less than an extension of the Cosmic Community and a branch on its Tree of Life.
The Great Realm of Forest and Kinship with all Creation
By pre-healing the energy of the Future in this way you will be emulating the actions of the Great Realm of Forest which acts as the lungs of the Earth by breathing in whatever is noxious in the atmosphere and breathing out only that which is pure and fresh. The Great Realm of Forest is not only Earth’s Cleansing and Clearing Service, it is also Her Protection—guarding Her from the harshest of destructive elements that are directed at her integrity from within her atmosphere and from without by slowing down the extreme effects of these attacks and diffusing their energy.
Because of your commitment to the spiritual path, you are to be the one to take the initiative to change the atmospheric energy of your situation so that Light can fill your domain. Remember that the destinies of each one of you are ultimately the same, that is, to grow your Lightbody, become Light and so raise the vibration of the planet to the 4th Dimension. The only way for this to be done is by your uniting with the Earth and with the All. To do this, you must become one with all those realms and realities on the path of Ascension—that is, everyone, everything and every situation, “Kinship with all Creation”!
Such Kinship is known and practised by all those who live in close and conscious proximity with the Earth, aware—moment by moment—of how the miracles of Nature (the changing seasons, the phases of the moon, the tides, and the myriad interrelationships within the Creation) impact upon the human body as upon the body of the Earth because the one is the other. In honouring the Earth in all Her aspects, practising this Kinship celebrates your oneness with the Earth and all its living, evolving energies; their spiritual and physical wellbeing are inextricably entwined with humanity’s and by learning how to communicate, in every imaginable way with other realms and realities you are able to commune with the essence of the Earth herself. Kinship with Creation recognises that everything is interrelated by being imbued with the “Holy Spirit”, that Divine Light of Source which renders everything as being of equal value to Life itself. Thus it is that this Earth essence is something you yourself can come to embody throughout the course of your daily life by physically mastering humility, reverence, respect, awareness of your impact upon your fellows, and fellowship. By means of such mastery you will be able to make a treaty with all Earth beings, a treaty that will truly honour the Earth.
Thus you can see how Kinship with Creation has the potential to abolish all polarity in your “ordinary” everyday life. In fact, taking a walk through a forest can not only be a wonderful metaphor for your walk through life but can also be your entry into a more communal way of relating to the Earth on which you live and which gives you your physical being. Through the pure love of the Cosmic Consciousness, all living things innately possess the trident of peace, balance and harmony, the equilibrium of which creates of polarity a properly functioning physical duality so that all can be as One and further the evolutionary process of Ascension.
PURPLE* will illuminate the path that will lead to rectifying the honour of the phrase, “peace in our time” by creating of it a reality. By learning your lines and absorbing Universal Truth, you can release yourself and all others into the oneness of a bountiful new nature.
PURPLE is your wake-up call and will ultimately lead you to finding your soul’s direction for your life. You are now being given the role of tending your own Realm of Forest and fathering your own and the planet’s destiny.  PURPLE will show you how to clean up all that is noxious, to slow down all that is raging and to diffuse all that is extreme within your atmosphere.
 The Gospel According to St. Mark 8:22-26—”And [Jesus] cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him. And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that [Jesus] put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw, every man clearly. And [Jesus] sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.” (KJV) This extraordinary tale comes from the oldest of the four Gospels, arguably, the one most closely reflecting the physical doings of the historical Jesus. One cannot but wonder whether the first healing distorted reality (meaning Jesus made a mistake and had to correct it with a “second go”) or offered the blind man a vision of future possibilities.
 Please refer to Green Mandala No. 31, The Forest of Fostering, Fathering and Furthering, and the accompanying essay on the Emu totem so that you can intuitively understand the Bigger Picture and learn how to “father” your situation by holding the energy until positive action can be taken.
