Primal Voice a New Song

Daniel had a dream and visions of his head as he lay in bed. Then he wrote down the dream: I, Daniel, saw in my vision by night the four winds of heaven stirring up the great sea, and four great beasts came up out of the sea, different from one another… and the visions of my head terrified me…I asked one of the attendants what does it mean, he said, : ‘As for these four great beasts, four kings shall arise out of the earth. But the holy ones of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever — for ever and ever’                                                           Daniel 7

Ev’rybody’s talking ’bout / Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism / This-ism, that-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m…..             John Lennon

American Empire, Russian, Chinese, United Nations…

Well that’s four,

Might as well be them;

Used to be British, French, Spanish, Roman, Turkish, Egyptian, Huns and Vikings, Ancient China… Ffoow……….

Empires come and go,

Their kings and queens, their governments, oligarchs, magnates and warlords return to dust,

And blow away in a wind that cares,

Not a lot,

Who they were or ever thought they might be….

But the kingdom of Heaven,

Malkutah d’Shamayim

Kingdom of God,

Malkutah d’Alaha

Eternal realm,

The Way,

Of the Christ,

Into whom,

May enter,

All who Love,

Is forever, and ever, and ever……

Alleluia. O sing to the Lord a new song;  sing his praise in the congregation of the faithful… Let them praise his name in the dance;  let them sing praise to him with timbrel and lyre

Sound praises to the Lord, all the earth.

Psalm 149

Listen to the birds singing unto heaven,

Dance in the wind,

And let the sound of the rain,

Bathe you, mind and soul;

Tangle with the rhythm of your fragmented mind,

Jangle with the beat of indigene time

Then he looked up at his disciples and said: ‘Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. ‘Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. ‘Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. ‘Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven’                Luke 6

When you wake up one morning, and find you cling no more to any thing,

No wealth,

No reputation,

No pretence,

Or struggle with what you’re meant to be,

No longer trying to be what someone expects you to be,

When you finally understand, you just can’t please all the people, all the time,

And you don’t even need to please some of them some of the time,

So you walk the walk,

Way, Truth and Life,


Yes my sister, my brother, then,

You will know what it is to be Free
