At night, When all was quiet and still, I watched from the darkness. I saw the glowing Red light of fire, As the forge roared And sparks were shooting, Bursting, dazzling, The star magic Of metal transmuted. I heard the roaring forge, The whoosh and quenching sizzle, Then the Mighty Hammer Bang BANG Bang BANG, An ancient song Of strength and steel, The heartbeat of creation, Intent and work, Forged and quenched and hammered, Bang BANG, Bang BANG. The shadows flow And retract, Flow and retract. I watched From the darkness, The Night Gifted Magician, Immersed in creation, Forging swords, And blades, and tools; Each carrying its own Particular Blessing of Power. .

Twirling and whirling,
Into the abyss we dare.
Dancing with devils,
Screeching and weeping,
We sing out our song,
A new song of death.
We sneeringly mock
Our own hopes and
Souls are trafficked
In an internet cloud,
For with clicks and
The loss of free will.
In the abyss we dance,
With the same ancient
Devils we know.
It was a beautiful day
The sun shining golden
As Grandmother Moon
Rises in fullness
There are gatherings
And parties and meet-ups
And wild jamborees
Mortal bodies fail us
Pain prickles and stabs
Sorrow claims the stars
Despairing in solitude
Wailing in the darkness
Empty eons between
Wild flowers bloom
The sand drifts deeper
Cloud to nowhere
Within wavering time
There is no forgetfulness
Bear … 04.28.2018
Who can bear the rebirth of sorrow
SWEET FLOWERS, UNSEEN,
PERFUME SOFT BREEZE RUFFLED AIR.
FRAGRANCED WHISPERS SOOTHE.
I hear Wind
Voice to sand
ANOTHER LETTER OF WARNING AND GRATITUDE FROM AGAWELA
I am truly grateful for honesty.
Courage is required to face one’s self, and those whom you carry in your heart, without disguise.
Deceit is the most hurtful of betrayals.
Backstabbing and gossip and innuendo and pseudo-insights fueled by misunderstanding and half-truths can cause permanent harm of unknown magnitude through unknown generations.
Betrayal of confidence and trust can cause irreparable harm of unknown magnitude through unknown generations.
Pretending virtue, pretending to pray, doing the motions of rituals without true good intent can open the way for malignant forces and malicious entities to become part of your sphere. This can be a damaging influence, not only on your own life, but on those for whom you truly care —- If you are capable of love, what can cause more grief than to harm the innocents whom you truly care for? False intent can manifest as illness, physical damage in an accident of seemingly unknown cause, or shame, grief, and pain in the heart of the innocent one. Not knowing the why of how they feel, they can become self destructive. Please be of true good intent in all of your actions. If you say you are praying, if you are acting out the outward motions … do PRAY.
I am grateful for those who are whole with themselves and honest with the universe.
I am grateful, also, for the harsh lessons learned through painfully resolved deceit, knowing that some things will never be comfortably resolved. I know that ongoing deceit causes wounds which cannot heal, with unknown repercussions generating sadness as an essence. I also know that deceit can be resolved with honestly facing the deceit and its causes, this also causes wounds, but these wounds, though scarring, can heal.
Thank you for all that you have done.
Thank you. I thank you all.

LETTER OF WARNING AND GRATITUDE FROM AGAWELA
I am told that some Indigenous medicine people think we, as a whole, are not in Tribulation. We are in a period of Transition.
I have found that change itself is not painful, it is the resistance to change that causes conflict. Especially if those others do not understand what is necessary and are fighting conscious evolution.
Doing without a bad habit is not what is painful, it is the clinging, even addiction, to the bad habit that hurts. Individuals, groups, even masses can be addicted to bad ideas and behaviors. Aggression is a bad behavior habit. The larger the portion of humanity who cling to the nasty old habits, the more difficult achieving global peace can, and will be.
However, there are many, including Elders who have suffered greatly in this life and have gazed into the Face of Evil, offer the hope that the basic goodness of humans will tip humanity towards an altruistic future.
It is the thought of myself, Agawela, that prophecies are merely warnings, not laws, about what most probably will come to be IF change is not expediently begun, enacted, and carried out.
Prophesies do not always reveal what change is required. That is part of the difficulty of clinging to old bad habits. All addictions, including wrong thinking, conceal TRUTH and the WAY TO PEACE.
If those whose desires are stronger towards their addiction for WAR dominate, then I, Agawela, say Tribulation and Apocalypse are the same.
Human disasters, that we make ourselves, can be averted, if the causes are dealt with in a timely manner. Those causes are not hidden.
I humbly thank those who are doing, and have done, what they can to preserve, protect, and generate goodness in this world.
I thank, also, those of you who hold the heroes of this world in your hearts.
It is your love, true and from the heart that creates balance against the ugliness. Without your love there would be no hope at all.
Thank you. I thank you all.
