All Such Gifts as These
    #3207962 - 10/02/04 09:50 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

This was written by an anonymous writer and I thought to share it just because it's uplifting.

ALL SUCH GIFTS AS THESE

In the morning the Sun arose, its gift was its light.
Upon a mountain, in a meadow, ten thousand dreamers
gathered to hail the Sun, their gift in return was its
greeting. In a chorus of voices, as one voice, they
said unto the Sun, "We are the awakened dreamers, we
have come to fashion new dreams."

In the morning the Sun lifted into the sky like a
shield of burnished gold, gleaming upon the meadow and
the dreamers, its light penetrating deep into their
hearts, saying unto those gathered as if by a voice
from deep within their souls, "Awaken, Dawn Dreamers,
and bring forth the vision of a new dream, bring forth
the new threads of a tapestry of Love, work diligently
as if you are the weavers of a new dawn, the builders
of a new Dream, the artificers of a new reality.
Dance upon this mountain this day and all mountains
shall rejoice. Sing into these heavens in one voice
and the stars shall join your chorus. Embrace and
make love upon these grasses and the Earth Herself
shall tremble with joy"

And the Dreamers did as they were bidden for the new
Dream had come upon them. Arm in arm they danced in
the sunlight, together they laughed and they cried,
they knelt and they prayed, for the ecstasy of the
Vision had come upon them and they wrought new works
hitherto undreamt of, now so easily fashioned in the
light of the new day.

Ten thousand Dreamers thus gathered, and each unto
their own they fashioned new Dreams. And the Visions
thus engendered became like threads weaving into a new
tapestry. Each in his turn, everyone unto her own
dream, they went forth to touch ten thousand more, and
thus did one hundred million awaken into the Light.

In the midst of such revelry did one voice step forth
to query of the Sun. "But what of those who suffer,"
asked she, "what of those who still hunger and who
pain?"

Then another voice asked, "Yes, and what of the rivers
that have been spoiled, and the forests that have been
laid to waste?"

Suddenly the winds took to the air and whispered
through the trees like ten thousand voices in sorrow;
the ground beneath their feet seemed to clutch at
their legs, stilling their dances, and one hundred
million hearts grew heavy with pain. Clouds
gathered, obscuring the Sun, drowning out its light
and threatening oblivion.

But from within the stillness a new voice whispered
forth. "Behold, I am the new Child of this Earth,"
said she. "I am the gift of the Mother who has
awakened into the Light and I bid all of you to dance
and rejoice for I have come through a doorway called
Grace. In grace shall you walk and in grace shall you
Dream your new Dreams. All shall be healed, all shall
be forgiven. Remember your pains and your sorrows
only as a means to heal them. And look upon those who
yet suffer with the eye of compassion that you may
lift them by the spirit of your new Dreams. It serves
naught to allow your sorrows to obscure the Light.
All has been brought forth now, nothing remains
hidden, and thus shall there be the cleansing of the
one great Soul, the purging of all that is unclean
within the one great body."

The voice of the Child lingered upon the air like a
gentle perfume. The winds subsided and caressed Her
words, the sun broke through the clouds enshrining all
those gathered in a golden light. With one great sigh
that embraced the whole of the globe, another layer of
Her great pain was released and swallowed by the Sun.

Then stepped forth a tall, broad shouldered one, one
who trod upon the ground with assurance and strength.
Into the center he walked and, gathering the Child
into his arms, he lifted Her into the Heavens.
?Behold, the new Earth!" he declared. "Take up Her
gifts because they are freely given?to you and you and
you," he shouted, pointing as he spoke at those
gathered around. "It is Her gifts that we must
embrace, wholly, in the new Dream: the fruits of the
fields, the flowers and the frills and the fancies,
the simplicities and the songs?everything of Earth and
Sky She has given freely that all may know Her as
their own. Focus on the gifts and they shall multiply
a thousand-fold so that all may share!"

The Sun had reached to the center point of the Sky,
his seat in the Heavens, and like great Helios of old,
the great charioteer of the Sun, He did pour forth his
mighty power for all to behold. The clouds brought
forth gentle rains that cleansed and purified the
dreamers, and hand in hand, they fashioned new colors
and new rainbows of Light, spinning new fabric to be
woven into new dreams.

?Focus on Her gifts,? sang forth from every heart and
a chorus of many voices. "Focus on Her gifts for they
are ours in which to delight, we, the marriage of
Earth and Sky, the new Dreamers of the Light." And
the chorus went onward from ten thousand voices to
join one hundred million hearts, encircling the globe
from mountain top to mountain top, from valley to
fruited plain, until at last all who walked upon the
Earth walked as if on sacred ground and in one Great
Voice brought forth a new song of thanksgiving as the
Sun slowly settled into the western seas, closing the
passage of the first new day. And in this Voice as
One, they sang this song:


All these gifts are given unto me
From the bounty of the Sun
My very breath, like
The whispering wind,
The undulating rhythms
Of the day and the night,
Of the moon and the sea,
All to partake of the wonder
Are these gifts given unto me!

The childlike innocence
The joy and delight of those circles
Gathered in the night
The fire lit songs of
Our hearts joined as One,
The stars of the Heavens
The effulgence of the dawn
The rivers.. flowing unto the sea
Flowing ever on, ever on,
The gifts of the Oneness
Embraced in our arms

The Universe in its ecstasy
All such gifts are given unto me
As I dance with the flowers,
With the birds and the trees
Singing the sounds of silence
The song without sound
Dance we together
This dance gathered upon sacred ground

Such gifts as are these
In kinship with all Life
The Living Light of Love
The very sands
That touch our hands
All such gifts as we please
Coming thusly unto me
Embracing I with Thee
In passion and in grace
Oh ecstasy, oh ecstasy
Life
O cherished Life
Unto me, unto me
In all that I am,
In all that I see
These gifts that we are
Like the rivers to the sea
Shall be given unto all
As are these gifts
Given unto me!

All such gifts
From the bounty of the sun
Infinite creation
Flowing forth as the
Rivers to the sea
Ever on, ever on
In bounty and in grace
Unto me, unto me
Until the bursting forth
Of the dawn
In ecstasy

The song of the wind
The whisper of the trees
The laughter of the children
All these gifts
Are given unto me
For I am the bounty
And I am the grace
In jeweled profusion
In time and in space
All such gifts
As the heart may behold
Unto me, unto me
As my life may thus unfold

The joy in this time
May it be as free as the wind,
Renewed in the morning
Again and again
The gifts of the living
Conferred upon this Crown
Ever on
Saith the river
Ever on
Ever on

All gifts such as these
May such bounty be embraced
The songbirds
The eventide
The moonlight
The dream

Each living moment
By the next shall be erased
Yet the love in my heart
For the passage of each moment
Shall never be replaced

All gifts such as these
To my life shall be mine
As the rivers unto the sea
Infinite creation
Flowing thusly unto me
And in such embrace
I dance thy sacred dance
I drink from the chalice
Of thy wine
In ecstasy and in grace
These gifts do I entwine
And to each in equal measure
Do I bid such gifts Divine
Until every river
Touches every sea
Shall all such gifts
Be delivered unto Thee!
