I am a gay man. By way of a powerful River Of Light in my mind during the month of October 1981, I see that:
+ We have entered Humanity's Next Cycle.
+ We have entered the Age Of Woman.
+ Gay Man is (was) Vessel Of Most Rejected in this world.
+ There is no judgment in being gay.
+ Lowest in the Here, highest in the After.
+ Last will be made first, highest will be made lowest.
+ All are priceless, unto the least and beginning there.
+ Love is the power and infinitely so. Love is the way. There is no other way.
+ There will be peace in this world, universal and perpetual, up to and including the last word spoken by, the last breath of, the last person to be alive.
