I saw Jesus at the bus stop again today. We met in rehab about ten years ago. We hit it off and kept in touch for a few months when we got out. Then I met a girl and found work across town. He just dropped away. We had plans to rent a house together once. When you have to make a new life you stick together. You realise how alone you are. He wanted a place with a work shed, somewhere he could work timber, maybe up in the hills away from the noise, and old friends and old ways we needed to let go. I agreed, we both liked restoring old wooden furniture and making things. I found him one day in the workshop back at the Centre, we talked for hours about old timber and projects we’d done and ones we wanted to do. Worn out broken men dreaming and healing. He crossed my mind many times but I didn’t know how to reach him. He never owned a phone. We’d made a connection. I knew he was a good man.

I’ve seen him around town now and then over the years. We never talk about the old plans or rehab now. Life moves you on. He asked how I’m getting on and always wants to know all about my boy Jack. I told him I’m not with that girl anymore and we rolled a smoke and sat talking at the bus stop for about a half hour. He explained he was doing it hard. Couldn’t get work, past his prime and nobody needed his skills these days. Back on the drink. I could smell it. I knew his health wasn’t the best. He had a smile as ever and was happy to see me but I sensed his act. I think he was carrying his life in that old rucksack. I offered my tobacco pouch and he reached up to take it reluctantly, his eyes smiled with a wink of humble gratitude. He asked all about my life now and how I was getting on. He said he knew things would be okay for me. Never said much about himself. He’d been in town getting some test results from his doc and bought a few groceries. Said he was going to watch an old western on the TV tonight and we laughed and talked about westerns, and science fiction movies, and tried to remember the names of a few old classics.

His bus arrived five minutes late. It was the one that headed an hour down along the bay to a quiet little backwater where the docks and an old shipyard and salmon cannery once did a good trade. They all closed years ago. There’s a pocket of a few hundred ramshackle tin roof asbestos workers cottages and a pub. The school closed in the eighties. He hollered out the bus door before it closed, “Tell Jack I said hello! Give him my love! You’re a good man!” and the bus pulled away in a blast of burnt diesel.

Rain fell hard on a wet black road as another bus pulled into its place and a gust blew cold grey people suddenly all around me. I doubt he saw my thumbs up and a smile in return as his bus moved off down the lane.

A bold new future.

What we envision we create. Reality will be adjusted. Order shall be restored. Peace and abundance will become available to all people in all lands of this blue world.

The concept of “business” as commercial enterprise will come to be outmoded as evolved cooperative practices replace competition and profit motives. Humans will all live in equality and prosperity without a need for money and the traditional systems designed to exploit human time and labour as employment and work in the pursuit of profit or capital gain for a few.

Existing social power structures and institutions which create and maintain inequity and inherent social injustice will be made redundant. Banking will cease. Interest charges will have no meaning and will be regarded as unethical practice. All people will be housed safely and securely in new model low density communities following a village model and favouring social cohesion, inclusion, and belonging. Homelessness and other social injustice will become unknown. Welfare state and charitable / non government organisations will cease to function in their present form. A society which avoids social inequity in the first instance has no need of such systems which are only an adjunct to counter the failings of current capital market based social systems.

Crime and criminal activity will become negligible.

Politics will be abandoned as a hegemonic authoritarian, primitive and obsolete farce and a false discourse. Religion as dogma and doctrine of control will cease as humanity shifts to new evolved spiritual connections with universal spirit and prime creator which truly fulfill the soul.

Notions of “success” will reset to inner goals instead of false social material constructs such as social status and class. Personal happiness will be a measure of success. The concept of self actualisation through creativity, independence, spontaneity will be acknowledged as a prime principle of the new social order.

The young will be free to follow their creative hearts without being socially compelled to ‘earn a living’ and paying bills. All ages will have such freedom if they so desire also. A free and creative society will naturally incubate new generations of free thinkers, and creative visionaries.

A new world awaits.

We are the visionaries and messengers who see beyond the extant worldly paradigms of constraint, control, and fear. We acknowledge that practical solutions and alternate systems will become apparent in time as a shift in consciousness takes precedence globally in due course. Current human attempts to alter the course of humanity away from imminent cataclysm are misguided, piecemeal, inept, inadequate, and ineffectual.

Stop debating. Stop fighting. End partisan politics. These are pointless exercises in futility. False dichotomy’s have ensured the continued and perpetual false division of humans which is illusory and not conducive to human unity and peaceful mutually cooperative outcomes.

War is a liar. Extinguish it. Eliminate it. Evolve from it.

Come together now in global unity. New ways of organising a human social order of Light will become apparent in time. These new ways will be willingly implemented world-wide, without needless obfuscations in debate and time-wasting, in a spirit of cooperation and Universal Love which becomes the overarching guiding principle of the new human society.

Paths will appear. Guides will assist. Faith is required.

Awaken now to the deceptions and lies of the world as it stands.  Understand that time is limited.  Understand that current political systems, world leaders, organisations, science, religions, and all other institutions do not have sound credible solutions.

Awaken and this world will unfold and a new era shall begin.

It is possible and we will make it happen.
