Once upon a time, long, long ago there was an ancient land. It was a land of great beauty, a land of mythical significance. However, I like to think of it as a real place, a place to dream about, an existence to aspire to.
Imagine how life would have been then in that golden-aged world.
How would it have been?
Those souls were pure living deities. They all had their own personal power, the power of pure, untarnished souls. In their behaviour they had all of the virtues. They were loving, patient, honest, brave, compassionate, considerate and kind, and so much more.
They had wisdom, the wisdom that only a strong and independent soul could have.
They had inner sight, that is, their third eye of wisdom was fully open and alert.
They could know the thoughts, feelings and intentions of all other souls. There was nothing hidden there, as each one knew what the others thought, felt and wanted. All were loving, that is, they had love for all their companions, for everyone. Everyone, therefore, was loved, known, appreciated and accepted. No one was left out
or felt left out. Everyone felt accepted and part of a loving and strong community.
Everyone had a part to play, a role unique to each individual. There was no competitive spirit, as all were fulfilling their heart’s desire of living their lives to the fullest. If they each had a talent, and of course each one did, then each was using that talent.
If their talent was art, they would spend their days, happily absorbed in painting masterpieces. If their talent was in playing particular musical instruments, then they would spend their days, happily playing those instruments to please their own hearts and, as well, the hearts of those who listened. If their talents were sweet singing voices, then they would sing for all to hear and appreciate.
If they had a talent for making fine jewellery, then they would spend their days, making the finest pieces for the emperor and empress and their royal court and the subjects.
And they would feel the greatest satisfaction in doing this.
If their talent lay in carpentry, then that is what they would spend their days doing, making fine pieces of furniture or building fixtures for all to enjoy.
If they liked to write, they would write masterpieces. If they liked to dance, they would dance most intricate and beautiful dances for all to enjoy.
Whatever talents they had, they would be using them and enjoying each day, doing what they loved doing.
Life would be lived to its fullest, enjoying each moment with complete delight.
So, how can we create such a life here and now?
Live the life you want. Live it now. Be who you want to be.
Live every day, as you want your life to be.
This is how you create the life you want.
Act it out, every scene, as you want it to be.
Then a golden-aged life will no longer be a dream. It will be reality, as you will have made it real. And, if you continue to act out all the things that you really want, they will become part of your life now. You will have created the reality that you want.
You will have changed your life to be exactly as you want it to be.
Then the Golden Age will no longer be a myth. It will be your reality.
And what a wonderful life to lead!
You can make your life the wonderful experience you want it to be by living it now.
Now is your reality. So make the reality one that you want, one that you can enjoy.
