a messenger angel - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
"You only get a message from heaven, " said the angel, "when your age is in a mess. So that I'm here at all is something of a shameful thing for your species, but also a marker that heaven believes that you are worth an attempt to save."
The messenger angel was always serious when it came to caring for Mother Earth. Any laughter she may have shown in her eyes stopped, "To fail to listen to the scientists, to halt pollution and preserve biodiversity and ecosystems, is to gamble with creation, and that truly is a terrible, terrible sin."
Speak to me of love before you speak to me of God, for if you cannot speak love in your words and deeds, you cannot speak of the divine spirit.
The apparition came as an ambassador for a God far away, she came to speak of the pain he could not articulate, to break him out of his coma. For too long the suffering of the world had locked him inside this prison and a resurgence of love was our only hope. There was no joy in her voice, nor a suggestion of a smile, only the seriousness of a doctor who has come to visit the terminally ill. She said to take that love we say we have for our God who is love, and use it to heal each other and the Earth. Then she left.
Mankind, kind man, you have one task in this era - save the Earth and each other. Let your love show in your work, your greatness shine through humility and let gratitude bring forbearance for the hardships you must face. The loved and loving creations of this world are more than your species, yet as the dominant life you carry the responsibility. One focus, one task, save Earth... and let it bond you as brother and sister across seas and land so that into the millennia to come you are as kin.
Our creator has been asking for so long, an answer is now required in deed not creed. The questions are in your language. Do you want to use "arms" or your own arms? Do you want to shoot others or see green shoots of spring? Do you want "off spring" or children "of spring"? War or peace? Scare or care? Scared or sacred? Do you "mind"? Or are you so comfortable in your primitive survival thoughts that you will not crawl out into the sunshine and use your higher order social animal brain? Can you exist in the ecology that has cradled your kind for all of evolutionary history? Or will you use Mother Earth like you're a bunch of addicts riding a stolen car?
"To be or not to be?" was never a question; it's cosmic blackmail. Our creator said "Be" just once, the keys to creation are only safe with the creator. The question was really "2B or 02B?" The answer is 1B. No creation of hell, only one Earthly home we make into our paradise, our eden, our heaven.
The messenger was asked about heaven, what was it? Where was it? Who got to go? She sat down on a rock and spoke softly, like a mother. "You were told the end times would come, but you were confused. The end times come whenever the earth goes past the tipping point and all life will suffer from that point on. Right now Earth can still become heaven, but in a few short years of continued pollution that won't be possible anymore. No loving God could condemn you all to hell, which is what it will become year on year after the tipping point."
"So to answer your questions directly, the earth will become heaven when we humans learn how to listen to God again. Your souls are immortal and belong to God, he can't loose you because that spark in you that innately knows right from wrong is still part of the Divine, still connected. But there is no other place for God to put you other than earth, you evolved here, this is your home. The end time prophecies have been harmful in that they encourage an attitude of earth as disposable, that you leave earth behind for a better place. I can't put it more simply that this, 'if you destroy the earth, you destroy heaven and make hell.'"
The messenger was asked about Yin and Yang, she smiled and replied. "I've always felt an attraction to the yin yang symbol. To me it's always meant caution and hope. Caution because even in the purest of hearts there is a seed that can become greed and vanity, that can use fear to gain power. Hope that even in the blackest of hearts there is still a seed of purity that can grow if nurtured in the right way. In Chinese traditional medicine they encourage one to step back from life and understand how your beliefs, thought patterns and the way you are living cause unwellness of body and mind and I feel that this is approach is required for all societies - to step back, to look at life from everyone's perspective but starting from the most vulnerable in that society - in many places that means women and girls. The only place for fear in the life of an enlightened human is the fear of the old selfish ways reemerging, the ones that are currently destroying the planet on which we all depend. Enlightened people learn to live only through love and positive emotions, being safe in the knowledge that a true noble defence (never attack) is an act of love and Love makes us strong and whole.
When the Creator's messenger was asked about eugenics she nodded and thought for a moment. "It depends what you mean. Preventing a baby from suffering can't be a bad thing but eugenics for other purposes is merely an extension of a greed, vanity, envy and fear culture. Eugenics would take the most intense experience of love and reduce it to "shopping." On that path your children would be commodities and society would degrade for multiple reasons. If you reconnect with Love you won't want eugenics anymore, your priorities will change.
I already told you that God is Love and that when children are raised in a positive loving culture rather than fear-based they will be in touch with their emotions, their true God-given natures. That doesn't mean giving them everything they want, they need guidance. It doesn't mean not allowing them to compete, we all have to learn to loose with grace and carry on. But our one-size-fits-all education models designed for the "average" doesn't work for most kids. Our definitions of intelligence are too narrow, we tend to prize only the things that bring in the most money rather than help society heal. There isn't a problem with our kids, it's our society that needs fixing. You all know what the number one cause of death is for teenagers. You can't blame the individual parents, I told you before, our society is toxic. Time to restructure.
The apocalypse had been nothing like the scriptures had predicted, only the messenger bore some resemblance to prophecy by her low birth and lineage. She finished the process of "waking up" and "connecting" in 2015, though she had always known her task it had been buried deep to protect her until adulthood. She was in the most precarious of positions, the message was so simple it was unlikely to be taken seriously, but the last thing the world needed was another religion to fight over, another holy book to be confused about.
With her connection she knew with certainty that the Creator was there and what his nature was, but there were inches of "scripture" that could be quoted to oppose her as people struggled to avoid a change that frightened them. So her first task was to reduce fear, to explain that there is no hell except what the earth is being made into. The next job wasn't as easy, the three main religions that had sprung from Abraham felt that they had been promised an eternal life in "heaven" with no real concept as to where or what it was. Science hadn't found such a thing but still they had "faith" it was there.
The messenger had to explain that there is only the earth for humans, at least for a long time to come, so should there actually be "life after death," it would be here on this planet. She had to encourage them to see their life, each day, as a special gift on the Creator's planet and not ask for more. Instead they should ask how they could help the Creator fix his planet, to stop polluting, to stop killing, to fix their cultures. But she had to point out they they couldn't serve the Creator until they truly understood His ways.
She was to first point them toward the First Nations of the North Americas as a culture to treat with deep respect. Before their near annihilation they had known the Creator, they had understood how to live in harmony, how to raise their children. It was time to create harmony, to love with passion, and be humble.
God's messenger was called on the explain disease and viruses, if God is real why do we have such things? The messenger looked back, her expression grim. "I've read before statements such as 'If God is omnipotent He is malevolent and if He is not, then He is not God.' Well, here's the thing, God is not omnipotent, you've all been asking for (been lead to expect) too much for a very long time. I read that statement as akin to saying 'If my Dad isn't the strongest man in the universe, he isn't my Dad!' Grow up."
"God does His best every second of every day to bring about peace, love, heaven on earth, but He's stretched to the limit trying to care for billions of people and the rest of the planet. He isn't limitless, but He is God and He loves every single one of you unconditionally. He is beauty beyond measure, He is pure love, He is amazing and I love Him. He is the One True God, but that doesn't mean He is the only player in town. He will love you no matter what, but He's asking for your help. Without you choosing the side that is Love - not fear, hate, vanity, greed, sloth, envy - the world will become more hellish. He won't ever go, but He'll be stretched so thin that eventually He won't be able to reach you anymore. He has faith in humanity, every single one of us, as individuals, He seeks a personal bond with you that is Love. So with no threat of hell, with no promise of everlasting life, will you be His hands and feet? Will you work for Love? Because He needs you to choose to be kind and loving. He needs you to help Him save His Earth and humanity."
The messenger walked once around the tree and stopped, her hand on the gnarled bark. "He has never encouraged or condoned war, He has never justified or sanctioned genocide, He is Love. If you think otherwise then you have not only been deceived by His enemy, but you do not know Him, He is a stranger to you, though you are not to Him. To Him you are beloved and He brings you love, forgiveness, grace and eternal peace. He says 'Do not kill.' He says 'Love as I love and I will be be beacon in the darkness that brings you Home. You are my child too, I love you and I won't ever give up until we are united as we were in the beginning.' You must understand that He is doing His best to bring you all Home the best way possible, but a four dimensional puzzle with a determined and manipulative foe is hard even for Him. Everything will be alright, just learn the true meaning of love; apply it to every aspect of your life and your world. Every system must be a virtuous cycle giving a better result each time. Your changes must be like evolution not revolution for things changed quickly are undone just as fast. Put simply, you must make heaven on earth using only the Power of Love.
"Think less of religion and more of Love. Every child is born knowing the language of Love. Hone in on it, savour it, understand it and embody it. Life is only as complicated as you make it. Intelligence and complexity are not the same thing; Love is simple and yet most intelligent way forward mankind can possibly have."
The messenger angel smiled, "Every single one of you is capable of receiving divine inspiration. Meditate on the true meaning of "love," open your heart, soul and mind, and it will come."
The messenger spoke His words: "Share My world. Love My world. Save My world. Humanity is part of a biological system, fully able to thrive on Mother Earth, it is not your destiny to die in a dystopian nightmare. Use your intelligence for creating harmony and peace, not greed and destruction. The God who is Love can influence any person of any faith or background. Think less of "sin" and more of "healthy vs unhealthy behaviours" from the individual to societal and global levels. Always act with maximum love and I will be better able to guide."
The messenger angel sat on the cold stone, her head tilted upward toward the sunlight. "There will be no heaven without the muslims. There will be no heaven without the Christians. There will be no heaven without the Hindus. The same can be said for every other faith. Our Father the Creator is the Father of us all, not just one select group. When you take up arms against one another or use propaganda to rob them of sympathy when they are in desperate need, you are acting against Him. All children are born with great Love. God is Love, no matter the name used to call Him by. You need to let go of your human want to be superior and correct. When you release hate, when you ward off thoughts and messages that bring you to a hostile mindset, meditate on Love and He will guide you through.
The messenger angel said, "Let the Earth be the most holy of places. Harm to Her is desecration. His presence is never stronger than in nature, in the rivers, forests and oceans. Your fellow species are worthy of respect and kind treatment, honour their spirits. Be good guardians, good caretakers, you can achieve anything if you set your minds to it."
The messenger angel shrugged but never lifted her steady gaze, "I'm not here to give you the messages you want, only the ones you need. The truth can be hard sometimes. Its seeds are scattered over the globe. Learn to be better listeners, better philosophers. Communicate to cultivate understanding and empathy, not focusing on how to 'win' or 'out smart' the other. Be humble. Be willing to change and to find a common path."
