Dancing with the divine

December 26th, 2013 by Tonya

I was watching a re-run of the finals of Strictly Come Dancing last night - not something I usually watch (I don't have a TV), but was intuitively pulled to watch it on this occasion on i-Player.

Rising from the Earth

We are rising from the Earth Like Angels Stretching our wings To enfold the sun, the moon and the sky Living In Truth, in Peace, in Power, in Strength In touch with our Greater Selves Knowing that What has held us back For aeons Cannot now hold us back For long There is a power and a passion rising In all humanity, An organising force In the universe Which means that We are realising our true natures And rising Like a phoenix From the Ashes Of the Old
