Day 12 - Marie Ruzicka "The Hope for America"
Pops and Kma came to know Marie a few years ago. Marie is always on the hunt for the latest evolutionary news on the planet. Because of her work, Pops discovered the Global Goals and GeniusU and he in turn brought this to his school, which continues to cause a ripple effect. She was called "The Hope for America" by Roger Hamilton, creator of GeniusU.

The Return to Love
The Moon was happy because each morning he got to wake up with the Dawn. They had been orbiting Mother Earth for millions of years and without fail, the Dawn found her Mysterious Moon each and every morning, always in a new location; they both lived with anticipation throughout the night. There were times when the Moon experienced darkness because the light was shielded by Mother Earth. The Moon tried to understand why there was darkness. Was the Sun or the Earth trying to hide something from him? Was there something that he didn’t know? What did the Dawn do while he was in darkness?
The Moon at one time was afraid to ask questions of the Sun. He was afraid of the answer that he might get or even worse that the Sun would be angry and punish him for eternity. The Dawn assured the Moon that she had been with the Sun since the day that it was born and the Sun, not for one day, has ever failed to give light. “In fact,” the Dawn said, “It is still the same day for the Sun, Day1.” The Sun doesn’t understand what night is. I know what it is because I get to bring a new day to all humans who experience darkness every night, but the Sun can only see its own light and her light is made up of love. The Sun says that she is there to bring light, life, and love to all. She only wants to see everyone in the light, to not be afraid of any questions, but instead to find joy in her life giving light.
A long time ago the Moon had told the Dawn that he sometimes felt lonely. He looked at other planets like Jupiter and Saturn and saw all the Moons that they have. He longed to play with other moons. The Dawn reminded the Moon that some planets like Mercury and Venus have no Moons at all, not to mention no people. “You were created to bring mystery and to mirror the subtle reflective light of the Sun to the billions of people on the Earth. Everyone talks about you and looks forward to see you each evening, and they miss you for the days that you are nowhere to be found. You are the beginning and ending of each month to many of their calendars. You are able to move Oceans, bringing in the new tide and taking away all that washes up on shore so all the people may begin each new day with a fresh slate of sand. Most importantly, you provide a mysterious sense of magic and romance. There have been millions of books, stories, pages of poetry, and songs sung about your magic. Out of all the planets and all of the moons, you were created to bring joy to the billions of people who have traversed the Earth for these thousands of years and the many thousands of Moons that will follow, and the best part is that I get to do this with you. I get to see you every day. I get to tell you my stories of the light, and I love hearing yours of the night. I don’t know what the night is like, but I love hearing about it from you. The Dawn said, “I hope that we can do this for another four billion years and beyond.” It was then that the Moon realized his special purpose and so from that time on, the Moon happily stayed in his mysterious orbit serving Mother Earth and her people. The moon looked forward to meeting the Dawn each new day and never questioned his purpose again.
When the Dawn and the Moon asked the Sun if they could incarnate into human form, the Sun had reluctantly agreed. The Sun said, “In order to do so, 99% of your memory will be erased and the 1% will be there to remind you of your reason for going to Earth. This happens to all souls who embark to enter the Earth stage and become humans.” It took the Dawn and the Moon many human lifetimes to remember who they were and after thousands of incarnations, they began to remember that they were of light, life, Love and reflection. They began to remember the power they possessed. They started to remember why they came to Earth and their memory of their intentions increased rapidly. Each day brought in new Joy as they began to see their joy overflow to others. Their energy was infectious.
The Dawn and the Moon discovered that they were not the only souls who had asked permission of the Sun for a human incarnation. All humans had asked the Sun of this privilege, and soon the Dawn and the Moon began connecting with all those who had discovered the fun in the mystery of human life.
They connected with their friend Marie who had been a deep thinker for much of her life. She had found a huge host of individuals who had rediscovered joy and the Dawn and the Moon began their journeys to meet these people. Marie first told them about a man, Roger Hamilton, who created GeniusU, and that’s how they found out about the Global Goals. In the Moon’s last human incarnation, he served as a school principal. He brought the Global Goals information to the school he worked at and told all the teachers, students and parents that everyone was beginning work together and experience the light, love, and joy.
After 1,000s of years of living in darkness, the people began to find their own light. For too long they relied on other human authority figures for the light and were given only a small piece. They were told that they needed to depend on them for truth, love, and light, and so they had completely discarded the light that they come equipped with and this is how darkness ensued. When the people began to no longer fear the Sun, they began to ask questions about the light. They asked why there was darkness. The Sun assured them that darkness is only an illusion. The light shines just as brilliantly as it did 4 billion years ago and will continue to do so for even more than that. The Sun reassured them that if they ever felt darkness, all they had to do was to look within and find love, and if they believed that it was there, they would find it, but if they believed in fear, they could also find it there as well. The trick was in making a choice. Once a choice was made to find the love, light, and forgiveness within, then a path of light would light up, even on the darkest night.
The darkness only knows darkness and has no idea what light is. The people who were in darkness developed a secret word thousands of years ago. They used to whisper it to each other for fear that someone would find out. Since the people of the dark had everything backwards, when they heard of Love it would sound like evol, or evil to them. But those who took a risk and took steps towards the light found freedom from the darkness. Now, in the light of the new Moon, there are millions who found that there is no reason to be afraid of light and love. They experienced the power and freshness of the Dawn, and the Moon reminded them that the brilliant light of the Sun never goes away.
The Moon and the Dawn began to find other people who found love and light and were speaking out and breaking the darkness. Williamson, who was a candidate for president in the land of Freedom, published a book called “A Politics of Love.” She began to remind the people about their ancestors and why they came and had risked their lives and traveled treturous seas just to gain their freedom from tyrants and aristocracies. She reminded them that they have a system, a democracy, that could work not only for the land of Freedom, but for all countries in the world. She would travel to a different city, get up on her soap box each day, and give the same speech so all people could hear:
“It’s radical to declare that God created all men equal.
It’s radical to declare that God gave all of us unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It’s radical to insist that our government should be a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
Such philosophical radicalism is our heritage, but it cannot be guaranteed. Once a democracy is established, it cannot be taken for granted. Just as a relationship must be tended to, and our bodies must be tended to, and our careers must be tended to in order to thrive, so our democracy must be tended to. Its survival isn’t guaranteed. At what point in a flight, once a plane is in the air, can the pilots then afford to ignore the panels in the cockpit? Every citizen is a pilot of our democracy, and if we do not think of ourselves that way, and act that way, then the plane of our democracy goes down.
Devotion to the ideal of democracy is a living force; it needs to be kept alive in our hearts and fostered by our political engagement. Democracy does not drive itself.” (p. 57 A Politics of Love).
As they read further, Williamson quoted the ideas that the founding fathers had when they first established the American democracy. She quotes Thomas Jefferson saying,
“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain even under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.” (p. 61 A Politics of Love)
The Moon and the Dawn were lit up by the new stories, songs, art, poetry and most of all the actions that people were taking. They first began to use their hands to warmly greet each other in manner dictated by the hundreds of customs established over the centuries, and then they turned and worked side by side to create the kind of planet where all could thrive in love, light, joy, and in hours of the illusory darkness when the Sun was not present. It became a custom for the homes and cities to dim their lights and in the darkened neighborhoods, before children went to bed, all the neighbors would come out in the fresh air and greet each other. They would then look up at the stars and remember the reason why they chose to come to the beautiful blue marble called Spaceship Mother Earth that was hurdling through space at thousands of miles per hour, without a spacesuit and oxygen mask.
The Moon and the Dawn went outside that night and met the neighbors. They always tried to prepare an encouraging quote to share. This time, it was three gold nuggets from one of their most famous scientists of their time, Stephen Hawking: “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
The Dawn and the Moon looked at their neighbors, then at each other and smiled and they used their hands and arms, – every atom in their body to give a hug and to share the love. They then turned and said to each other, “Another Good Night.” They were experiencing the return to love.
