God Is Alive - Magic Is Afoot

This is most astounding to me. First time I heard it was in Phoenix, AZ when the album first came out. Floored me. Knocked me right on my butt. Beautiful. I have referred to it many times, copied it, had friends look up the lyrics (before there even WAS a Google), recited it as a prayer, sung it as a song and held it as a sacred word from a servant of God. When I was a writer for Rumor Mill News last year, I even posted it - and that is where I found it today, posted by a french mystic/writer Michael St. Clair. I never knew it was NOT written by Buffy-St. Marie. It was written by Leonard Cohen. Michael's post is left intact

Dear Friends:

Mercury the Messenger is now soonest -- as right now at this very moment 10.29 Libra - see PS below -- in the upcoming Red SkyWalker Eclipse Libra 11 degree, and RMN shaman colleague JASMINE reminded me kindly via a noetic "prompt" to post this amazing song lyric -- performed by Buffy St.Marie:

GOD IS ALIVE - MAGIC IS AFOOT

God is alive, magic is afoot
God is alive, magic is afoot
God is alive, magic is afoot
God is afoot, magic is alive
Alive is afoot, magic never died
God never sickened
Many poor men lied
Many sick men lied
Magic never weakened
Magic never hid
Magic always ruled
God is afoot, God never died
God was ruler
Though his funeral lengthened
Though his mourners thickened
Magic never fled
Though his shrouds were hoisted
The naked God did live
Though his words were twisted
The naked magic thrived
Though his death was published
Round and round the world
The heart did not believe

Many hurt men wondered
Many struck men bled
Magic never faltered
Magic always lead
Many stones were rolled
But God would not lie down
Many wild men lied
Many fat men listened
Though they offered stones
Magic still was fed
Though they locked their coffers
God was always served
Magic is afoot, God is alive
Alive is afoot

Alive is in command
Many weak men hungered
Many strong men thrived
Though they boast of solitude
God was at their side
Nor the dreamer in his cell
Nor the captain on the hill
Magic is alive
Though his death was pardoned
Round and round the world
The heart would not believe

Though laws were carved in marble
They could not shelter men
Though altars built in parliaments
They could not order men
Police arrested magic and magic went with them
Mmmmm.... for magic loves the hungry
But magic would not tarry
It moves from arm to arm
It would not stay with them
Magic is afoot
It cannot come to harm
It rests in an empty palm
It spawns in an empty mind
But magic is no instrument
Magic is the end
Many men drove magic
But magic stayed behind
Many strong men lied
They only passed through magic
And out the other side
Many weak men lied
They came to God in secret
And though they left Him nourished
They would not tell who healed
Though mountains danced before them
They said that God was dead
Though his shrouds were hoisted
The naked God did live
This I mean to whisper to my mind
This I mean to laugh within my mind
This I mean my mind to serve
Til' service is but magic
Moving through the world
And mind itself is magic
Coursing through the flesh
And flesh itself is magic
Dancing on a clock
And time itself
The magic length of God

PostScript:

We are heading into the most amazing LIBRA 11 RED SELF-EXISTING SKY WALKER Eclipse -- Wakefullness -- in less than seven days on October 3, when we ought to be able to walk through all the dimensional portals and back... and I would like to ask all RMNers to dream positive dreams -- and to use I-Magi-NATION for dreaming into being the great outcomes we desire -- and to manifest them by the time of say October 10th... 10102005 - nine ok. The admonition of Libra 11 over "Red SkyWalker" guided by Universal Water is to DIVINE and to integrate heaven and earth in your own self... and will say more later as OCTOBER 3 2005 = 11 ... approaches by the day...

What we channel and THINK now with Mercury right now as you read this is what will be relevant at 6:28 a.m. EST next Monday, in a week. That is 3:28 a.m PST or 12:28 p.m (noon) Europe. Make a note of this and reserve an hour for what you must get done inside of yourself at that time. Asleep or awake makes no difference, but set the inner mental "alert"-clock for that moment in time!!!

Peace
Michel StClaire
