FARMING the LAND
A Message received by Milson (early 1990s)
from Archangel Michael
"The land must be worked. The farming community world-wide, but particularly in the Western world, has lost some of the understanding of what it means to deal with or work the land.
Land, you see, is never owned but is passed on from generation to generation. It is inherited or indeed passes through different "owners." It is how you relate to Mother Earth that allows her to give you her best, rather than her worst. Relationship in all formats is still very symbolic in one direction. All parts and parcels of life work together, there is no such thing as being out in left field and isolated. The relationship to land, as it unfolds your personality, is indeed to cleanse it. The process of cleansing is here to work with the elements of earth. The elements of Earth understand only Earth. Therein in its simple terms the life forms, although not seen by the eyes of human beings, are still very real.
The essence of a tree is still very real, the essence of the growth upon and throughout Mother Earth is very real. This does not infer that one should start making sacrifices in the four quarters of one's property - it simply means here that one pays respect in the ancient traditional methodologies of Nature worship. Nature worship means here that in the seasons of the full moon and the new moon certain blessings are sent forth upon the land, and at solar equinox times certain other blessings are given forth.
There is also an affinity with the land from the individual's body of Light. Your physical being is a vehicle like a tractor: and there is a driver upon the seat - the driver is your body of Light, this is the real you that continues beyond birth and death but is the part that makes affinity with land, so making the retrospect and the respect of overture allows a piece of property to be valuable because it is alive not dead.
Deserts do have their life in them, but they are in an embryonic state, so it is also of the polar caps and regions that are inhospitable - they are going through phases of change to the life elementals. So it is that the Elementals can be invoked and the land can become very profitable in more ways than one but it is your heart and soul that has an affinity to it. Not just saying it and wishful thinking but this is for a moment in silence. When one sits around the table to say grace it is Grace in unifying to the ground (earth), and the benefits that such ground shall offer, and there is always receive, and give that which you are willing to give.
One must give understanding to the Elementals that there is a partnership of equal terms. No-one is higher-up, no-one is a king or emperor: there is working together in equality-partnership-linking.
But all these are just words. The essence, and in reference to your question, understand here that part and parcel there is a higher philosophy that must enter into the picture. That of simply mundane tilling of the soil and allowing just hopefully that the bills can be met, whether in the city or in rural areas, is part and parcel the overall cause of the deficits, debts and calamities that are occurring. There is disrespect to Mother Earth and it is not enough to go around with a banner saying 'Stop pollution' at some pulp and paper mill - this is making the overture to Mother Earth directly.
There is a whole system of it. The honorary system of Wicca, which is a very ancient tradition, even before the time of Christ, and was indeed very powerful to the tilling of the soil as well as making overtures to your own prosperity, is still a working viable enterprise. Doesn't mean as we said to go out on left limb and to create all kinds of eyebrow-raising by neighbors. It can be done very quietly. It can be done with your own mind, but there is the essence which links to all of life that will indeed make you very powerful. If it is still to be avoided by quick little trips we apologise but we can't resolve the problems from that standpoint. The overall concept has to be taken into consideration. End of sermon!"
