The Second Coming
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
B. Yeats penned this poem in 1919. He predicted a “Second Coming” in the 21st century, and now, as we near 2020, we are at a crossroads. A revelation is at hand. There is a “second coming” in the energy of the Christ consciousness that is gaining traction: Love. Light. Forgiveness. Brotherhood. Love thy neighbor as thyself. Those that choose to embody these tenants will be part of a “New Earth.” But we are becoming more polarized. Why? Because those who refuse to raise their vibration are being left behind. They’re the “angry dessert birds” in Yeat’s poem. They’re angry alright, and they’re negative, low vibration people. They are loud, vocal, and violent, but we make them more powerful when we allow them to instill fear in us. Now, more than ever, Lightworkers must stare down the darkness and speak our truth about embodying the tenets of the Christ Consciousness energy. In doing so, we help humanity take back our collective power.
“Turning and turning in the widening gyre, the falcon cannot hear the falconer.” The gyre (twister), is the chaos that humanity has experienced for thousands of years, and it is coming to a head. The falcon is humanity, and the falconer is Spirit, Source, God, or whichever name resonates. Where has this chaos come from? We have created it. Most people have heard of Chaos Theory. It is an interdisciplinary theory stating that within the apparent randomness of chaotic complex systems, there are underlying patterns. In other words, there is a divine order to this perceived chaos: it is showing us what needs to be healed. Humanity is going through a cleanse right now. We are being shown the very worst of ourselves, our collective darkness so that we can see what needs to be healed and release it.
“Things fall apart. The center cannot hold. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.” How bad this gets is up to us. We will experience anarchy, but it can either be terrifying or liberating. If we don’t take responsibility for being kinder, more compassionate, loving, light-filled beings, the “blood-dimmed tide” will be let loose upon the world. We’ve seen this before. Why have we had wars? We have created them because “the best (lacked) all conviction, while the worst (were) full of “passionate intensity.” In other words, lightworkers need to speak up and speak out.
Many of us who believe in love, light, kindness, and compassion, are afraid to speak our truth. We are afraid of the passionate, intense ones and the darkness that dwells in them. Darkness is nothing to fear. In fact, it is a catalyst for light because we have to look at the dark places in ourselves in order to heal them, but then they are transformed. When we’re children, we’re afraid of the dark, and then we turn on the light, and we see that we are in the same surroundings, with a new perspective. We feel safe. As we collectively turn the light on, the darkness is transformed, and a new perspective is created. We feel safe. Spiritus Mundi is Yeat’s term for “all of human consciousness, past, present, and future.” Because we are all connected through the collective consciousness, as we carry more light energy, we add more to humanity. That is what lightworkers are here to do.
Worry is just fear disguised as concern. When we are afraid to speak our truth because we are worried what people will think or what they will say, we give away our power. In speaking up and speaking out, we find freedom from our fear, and we take our power back. The “beast” in Yeat’s poem? It’s what will emerge after the chaos settles. The Sphinx in Egypt could represent the period in history when humanity will finally have the courage to overcome our fear and step into our power again.
Yeats talks about the “ceremony of innocence” being drowned. We know now that we are not victims of blind fate. We create our collective reality with every thought, every emotion, and every decision. By facing our fears through our healing work, we become conscious conductors of light. In the process, we heal ourselves, our children, and our world.
We create a “New Earth.”
