FROM SEEDS OF HOPE TO ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES… A NEW AGE

A ‘REVIEW’ of the new work by Craig Lock

 

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individual concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

– Dr Martin Luther King Junior, “a champion of peace in a time of war.”

 

The central theme of this new work by Craig Lock is the “great thought”… that somewhere, somehow in the future there are infinite, endless possibilities. The ideal, the vision, the dream is to usher in a new age to bring peace to a world “hell-bent” on destruction. This “story” can be read at different levels from the personal, to a “group”, national, international or “spiritual” perspective (“go as deep as you want”).

Here is a short extract (in the form of some varied uplifting thoughts) from my new work ‘Endless Possibilities, Far and Grand Horizons’

 

“I am profoundly saddened and outraged by the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. Her death is a tragedy for her country and a terrible reminder of the work that remains to bring peace, stability and hope to regions of the globe too often paralysed by fear, hatred and violence.”

– Hillary Clinton

 

 

People experience God in different ways. Experience mystery and hope. Changing of world order (subverting old values)

YOU have the spark of the divine within you.

Activate and direct the spirit that is in you already.

“Enquire within yourself and discover who you really, really are!”

“He who doesn’t know his own self knows virtually nothing; but he who does, has gained knowledge of the profundity of the All”. – Thomas (the Contender)

“The gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and few people find it.”

Be a CHANNEL of God’s justice, peace and love. The world needs a deep change, a ‘transformation of heart’: to forgiveness and generosity of spirit through masses of ‘ordinary’ people.. And that is the real evidence of “God’s return to planet earth”.

“For yours is the Kingdom, the glory, the worship, and the magnificence for ever and ever. Amen – a Prayer of St Paul

“Such a man or woman is truly blessed for that soul will know God.”

The tradition, the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth points us to a sense of RENEWAL: of new thoughts and a new life, as well as endless possibilities…as an individual, a community and as a nation. We are choosing hope over fear, unity over division, a new vision for the world. And so it is the triumph of life over death, of love over hate, of light over darkness.

Some Thoughts on LIGHT:

What you learn in the light, you’ll never forget in the dark.”

“There are two ways of spreading light – be the mirror or the mirror that reflects it.”

– Edith Wharton

 

The lives of Neil and Creina Alcock and a few other “true patriots heralded a new dawn…

“Here was a light behind the despair, beyond the darkness. At first a flicker of an ember, just a tiny pin-prick of dawning possibilities. Then burning slowly, brightly and bigger, a glimmer, a candle in the blackness of despair, which gave off just enough of a glow (luminescence?) to light a path. And so show the rest of us the way ahead… a path to endless possibilities…from the darkness into the eternal light.”

as adapted (slightly) from Rian Malan’s powerful words in his “compelling” book ‘My Traitor’s Heart’ (pg 413)

“Without trust, there is no hope for love and love is all we ever have to hold against the dark.”

– Creina Alcock

 

“When people’s hearts are filled with love, the world is full of hope.”

– craig

 

“We are choosing hope over fear, unity over division, a new vision for the world. And so it is the triumph of life over death, of love over hate, of light over darkness. …

– powerful and inspiring words from US President, Barack Obama

 

Finally…

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.

So believe in your dream.

Never throw it away.

Believe in the dream even when it is impossible.

Believe in the stars, even when they’re hidden in the storm. Believe in love, even when you can’t find it or feel it.

Believe in faith, even when God is silent.

So turn your hurts into halos and your deepest scars into the brightest stars.

And when it’s time eventually to take your last breath…

you will come to the end of your journey with pride behind you, love around you and hope ahead of you.”

– Benediction from Coretta Scott King’s funeral by Robert H. Schuller, founding Pastor, Chrystal Cathedral, Garden Grove, California (and slightly adapted by craig)

Be a spark that helps light the flame of hope in others

“There are two ways of spreading light – be the mirror or the mirror that reflects it.”

– Edith Wharton

“Together, one mind, one soul at a time, let’s see how many people we can impact, empower, encourage and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials. Change YOUR world and you help change THE world…for the better.”

PPS

“Every tiny action by seemingless ordinary people may be seen as a pin-prick in a small piece of card-board. Yet it is each ONE of these barely observable holes that makes a miniscule difference… through allowing a glimmer of light to shine through. And it’s the myriad of tiny flickers, thousands and thousands at a time that can shine the brightest light in the darkest of places.”

– craig
