Gift of the Jaguar
The radiant blue star shines high in the moonless north sky.
Frozen and still, yet appearing to be the ultimate source of life.
Quietly and slowly, it reveals the great quest destined for humanity
That will violently and completely transform the heart of fear in all.
Turning south, the crescent moon invites light into a ruby colored sky,
While a red star rises, as if signaling the beginning of a competitive race.
It creates vortices of energy whirling around with a wake up call
To the immediate challenge of sincerely changing our ways.
In the west, the light of the gibbous moon illuminates raging fires
Relentlessly consuming all life, like an angry, voracious dragon.
It threatens to destroy all that we thought we ever needed,
While leaving a void of expectation and grief in the smoldering ashes.
In the midst of chaos, anxious beings pursue a desperate search for survival,
As an ominous dark image slinks in giving vision to even greater fear.
A large, black jaguar, snarling and hissing, looks deeply into the heart of humanity,
To that place of terror that has held everyone captive in a deep, soulless place.
The old order, we thought would never end, falls apart, as many scream and run.
And those who believe in their disempowerment drop to their knees as victim.
But still others, in the midst of terror, dare to meet the gaze of the jaguar,
Confronting their fears, while standing fast and claiming their right to be heard.
This landscape of change becomes clearly visible under the light of the full moon,
While those who dared to touch the jaguar are transformed and looking eastward.
They feel the presence of Earth within, as their heart becomes of symbol of sacredness,
And the awareness held by all now envisions a belief in the truth of Oneness.
A restored Earth now shines as a star, and the jaguar is no longer a threat to safety.
The transformation of humanity’s belief in fear has birthed a knowledge of new order.
All creation opens like a blooming flower in its expression of this new paradigm.
The dark night has ended, and the sun rises on the dawn of a new and promising day.
