In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Men will be able to go down under the waters
Their bodies will be new and they will be fish
And some will fly high, higher than the birds
As if stones don’t fall.
They will communicate with each other
For their minds will be so greatly open that they will receive all messages
And dreams will be shared
And they will live as long as the oldest of men
The one of whom the Holy Books speak.
This prophecy is a difficult one for me to comment. Is John just having trouble describing future technology, or is he saying that our bodies will have changed so much that we will be fish? He does not say “like fish”. He says that we will “be fish”.
There has been some experimentation in filling our lungs with a substance which allows us to stay under water for extended periods of time. This was a few decades ago. I don’t know if this sort of thing is still being done.
We know that some animals, such as dragons and dolphins, returned to the water, having previously left it to live on land. Dragons came back onto land, and are now mostly extinct, which shows that dolphins made the right choice.
During our conception and development in our mother’s womb, we go through the entire cycle of evolution. We don’t actually use our lungs for breathing until we are ejected from the womb. Theoretically, it could be reasonably simple, with a bit of genetic tweaking, to transform some of us into “fish” again. Unlike the dolphin, we would not have to adapt “naturally”, which would take numerous generations of us living almost continuously in water. We could change our DNA and transmit the change to our children.
If large chunks of our planet disappear under the rising seas, this could be part of our coping strategy.
John also speaks of us flying higher than the birds. He doesn’t mention any machines, so he is probably referring to some sort of levitation. Some humans are able to control levitation. Most of us, if we levitate at all, are unable to control it.
Levitation is due to a change in the way that we vibrate, usually connected to our emotional state of mind. This change eliminates part of the pull of gravity and can send us soaring into the air. When this happens unexpectedly, it often causes fear. As soon as we feel fear, our vibration changes and we come back down to earth - or remain desperately clinging to a tree branch, waiting for help.
I had one brush with levitation when I was eight years old. It was preceded, and accompanied, by a feeling of great joy, happiness and love for the entire Earth. I wanted to hug the sky. I was running at the time, and did not immediately realize that my feet were no longer touching the ground. I only rose about 30 centimetres, and kept travelling forward at the same speed, but I have talked to people who had friends who had had the “whoosh, then treetop” experience.
In the middle of the nineteenth century, a gentleman by the name of Daniel Dunglas Home floated in and out of upstairs windows in London, as his party trick. So he could definitely levitate at will and control speed and direction while he was doing it.
Perhaps, when our spirituality has developed more universally, we shall be joyful and loving enough to levitate at will.
In the second part of this prophecy, John appears to be speaking about telepathy and sharing dreams. We know that people often communicate mentally with each other. I used to communicate in this way with my cousin. That was before mobile telephones.
I also sent messages in this way to my dog, who responded to them. It is very easy to do this with animals; you just have to remember to send images, not words. It is also easier for humans to receive images rather than words, although we can do both if we imagine the word written down, and send it as an image.
John tells us that we are going to live much longer, too. A healthy, stress-free, spiritual life of love and understanding toward all living things, is guaranteed to lengthen our lives. We are genetically programmed to live 130 to 140 years. Already, our average life expectancy increases by three months every year. If this keeps going, who knows where it will end?
Thirty-fourth prophecy tomorrow.
