Pagan Belief In A Solar Deity
May Be Correct
By James Donahue
I recently received a letter from a 30-year-old woman who
perceives our universe as a living organism.
She wrote: "If you magnify an eyelash, or a drop of water, you will see
millions of living cells and organisms floating around. I believe we, as humans, are part of a chain (of life) and we are
a part of a higher being. . . we could be organisms (living) on another being for all I know. I believe life lives upon life,
like fleas on a dog. We are humans on the Earth. Think of the Earth as one cell working in conjunction with millions upon
millions of other cells."
Her letter reminded me of a revelation I experienced as a boy. It came to me while I was
standing one bright spring day deep in a small forest on my father's Michigan farm. As I stood there, smelling the rich aroma
of the trees and grass and flowers springing to life after a winter's slumber, I could almost hear the sap rushing through
the bark of the trees and sense the thunder of a reawakening Earth under my feet.
It was at that moment that I understood
that the planet was a living organism. I also thought about the perfect orderliness of the universe; how the planets are in
constant motion around the sun, the sun is in constant motion in our constellation of suns, and even the constellation is
in motion among the other constellations. Looking within, I thought about our understanding of the tiny atoms, and how the
particles of every atom are in constant motion. If all things are in constant movement, and all movement is following a perfect
pattern without chaos, then the entire universe must be alive, I marveled.
All of this came to me in a flash. I was
given a brief glimpse of a wonderful truth. Even though I was perhaps viewing it from the perspective of an ant looking out
over the back yard from the top of a tall weed, I was privileged. I was allowed to temporarily remove the social blinders
skillfully installed over my eyes. For that instant, I had an understanding shared by the anciens who knew that both the Earth
and the Sun were living beings. We are all part of The One. We are all one.
When my wife, Doris and I lived briefly
with the Navajo and Hopi people in Arizona a few years ago, we were acutely aware that the aboriginal people all respect and
even worship the Mother Earth as a living deity. When we offered a Hopi two-horned priest a meal in our home, we were surprised
that before he ate a single bite of his food, he took a portion of it into the yard and offered it back to the Earth from
which it came. This man spent the night with us. He was awake before dawn. We found him sitting on a rock and welcoming the
sunrise. It appears that the Hopi also believe the Sun is a living being.
During our time in Arizona, Doris
and I were working hard to shake off the old tunnel realities implanted by years of social conditioning. While we could talk
about how we respected and cherished our environment, it was difficult for me to really believe that a rock, the distant mountain
and soil I walked on were part of a living organism. Unlike the eagle soaring overhead, or the coyote slinking across the
desert, the planet does not appear to breath, it has no blood flowing in its veins, or a pumping heart. Consequently, I reasoned
that it probably was not a conscious living being.
I had temporarily forgotten the vision of my youth. The reality
of what I already knew was brought back to me by a letter from one of my readers. The Earth is the Mother of all living things,
including the bodies that we occuply during our time in this dimension. She provides for all of our needs, giving us rain
and water to drink and to grow the things we eat. She provides the air we breathe and keeps our atmosphere stable so we can
While the Mother Earth is the source of the bodies we occupy,
a second mystery is the origin of our spirits that live within these bodies. Some refer to this inner light as our soul. We
have reason to believe that this light is part of the Creator that may be the entire living universe. This inner light is
the thing that makes us unique among all of the living creatures on this planet.
The human race has had an ancient
covenant with the Creator to love and cherish the Mother Earth. The advancement of civilization that brought about the industrial
age, the inventions of motorized vehicles, electronic devices and sent humans into space, the run-away overpopulation of the
planet, and the greed that drove us to ravage the resources of the planet, broke this sacred covenant.
Now we are about to face a judgment for what has been done.
We are running out of resources, our air and water is polluted, we are quickly killing the sea life and animal life, our trees
are disappearing, the carbon in the air has heated our planet and caused dramatic climate change.
There are many prophets, psychics, astrologers and seers now
receiving the same message from beyond . . . there is a dramatic change about to happen. The Mother Earth has moved into a
new dimension and the human race must get ready for dramatic changes. Failure to prepare for this change will mean that many
will be left behind.
The Christian church talks about the “rapture”
of the saints in the last days. In a strange way, this story is a description of a similar event, but it is presented almost
in the way a comic book story might have presented it.
Instead of Jesus and his white robed saints descending from
the sky, however, the interruption may well be some kind of dramatic shift brought about by an alien intervention designed
to save the human race from itself.
The Book of Revelation, chapter six, states that something
causes "the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every
slave and every free man" to hide "in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains."
Revelation 14:18-20 talks about an angel of fire that
summons a second angel with a sharp sickle (used for harvesting) saying: "gather the clusters of the vine of the Earth; for
her grapes are fully ripe (human overpopulation).
"And the angel thrust in his sickle into the Earth, and gathered
the vine of the Earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden (outside) the
city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs."
furlong is an ancient measurement of about one eighth of a mile. Thus the blood will cover the ground for an area of about
200 square miles.
There is no doubt in my mind that the humans occupying this planet deserve the wrath that looms.
We have grossly overpopulated and ravaged it to a point where there is no longer a chance of saving its ability to sustain
life. The problem has gotten so severe the planet's life appears to be threatened.
The human history on the Earth has
been like a cancer, growing and consuming the planet's "resources." We have destroyed the forests. We polluted the air. We
poked holes in the ozone layer that shields us from the harmful rays of the Sun. We have destroyed thousands of living species.
We have polluted the lakes and oceans to a point where they also are dying. In spite of repeated warnings, there seems to
be no indication that this madness is going to be voluntarily halted.
Our only hope is that some outside force is preparing to save
us. The Abba Father messages offer this hope. This entity gives us simple instructions for awakening the light within and
the reaching out with love to those around us and an assurance of a rescue into a new and repaired world.
