" Atlantis, the Lost World of Angels and Enlightened Ones "



Oh Atlantis the beautiful domain of Poseidon, God of the Sea

where the virtuous and knowledgeable Atlanteans reside

lost in an aquamarine dimension, veiled from the profane world

seat of all wisdom and arcane mysteries and secrets

we are a pure race, dedicated to altruism and benevolence

existing on an inscrutable plane, we are above myth and legend

and our benign influence continues to this day

as we exert our collective will and compassion through the blinding light

with Neptune our Guardian, and Atlas our King

and Zeus, The Lord of all Design,

we shall remain hidden through the aeons of time

neither Plato or Aristotle could crack our code

for we begin, where intelligence ends

and to all those who believe in faeries and magic

the realm of imagination that stretches the string of wonder

our Utopia is within reach, to them that really care

and have the courage to chase their dreams

and grasp them within their hands

so step within, this enchanted land

where the scales of justice merits all

and Love is the drug

that fills your veins

Any place that has secret wisdom, myth or historical archives should be excavated in our minds and explored through the written word. It is poetic pieces like The Atlanteans that give us our measure of immortality in the way of the land of enchantment. Magical write, Peter!

Now if I came from anywhere mystical then it would, most certainly, be Atlantis. I am a Pisces and the water is the conduit of my passions. I know I come from the sea. In this humidity...I have gills!
I love the enchantment of a water kingdom.
Love this write I flip my fins and tail in salute to your penmanship.

Thoughts of Atlantis fascinate me, Peter. I am glad that you paint it as a place of light... I have a fear of murky depths, although, reading this delightful piece, I could feel strands of my "gloopy" Solar Complexus bubbling up again, somehow!! So pleased you liked! :)) I might just grow some gills and a tail and pop down to investigate... TY Kate xx

Bravo, Peter... I read this this morning ( powerful, breath taking) but was on my way out the door, so I knew I'd come back to write to you.. Had to come back and comment. Atlantis was an extremly high conscious evolution plane. I had read many, many times about this fascinating world, beautiful crystalized plane.They were all extremly high evolved souls. They were remarkable teachers, just as the dynasty of Egypt. They walked with the vision of the Arch angels.. The divine gave them many, many ideas about living with high knowledge and channeled to them divine purposes of the crystal of energy and sight. I believe in it. I think their knowledge was superior to the many others dynasties. They had their humanism just like we do, their glory and their character flaws, just as we.They had their societys that some were not allowed in.. They fascinated me with their knowledge in the temples.Temples were places the high preists would gather to give secret high plane knowledge, cleanse themselves and annoint others. Their worship was extreme high because they were on an incredible high plane.I loved the way they used the crystal back then for power and energy, which eventualy led to their fall.I can vision a woman in a temple with a beautiful crystal head dress on, declairing the power of the Gods. The head dress was remarkable, flowing, diffrent shades. I hear their feet walking towards the hevens and stars.I had seen many people draw, sketch, paint what it looked like.You know Peter, one day we will all know truest and the highest knowledge. We will know all the truth. Today I went to church ( a new one ) and was so disapointed in the doctrins. It was all about duty, works. Come on people, why don't you speak like Jesus did about love? Where is the love? I felt a coldness, a draft, oh, hi how are you? But it was another song and dance of the same thing. I teach agape which is the Greek word for loving all without conditions. We may not approve of a person or like them, but we are all called by God to love every single soul, every person. Earning points with God just doesn't sit well with him.It is not by works we have grace, it is by grace we are given unmerited grace. I felt so intuitive as I walked in the door, that I could feel a pin drop of the stuffiness of that place. I think God is showing me that because I see over and over the phony of people, I know I am on the right track with my free thinking. It is not in how or where we worship the divine, it is only a place in the heart. I have people in my life pushing me to only be a judeo Christian. They are pushing me to be a certian idea.I'm starting to feel smothered. But there's always something positive about it, that I use my intuitive abilites to learn, study people, that it helps me to see where I as a soul wants to go. The fact that your writting about the great dynasties tells me that in your heart and in your intuition that people are so ready for the truth, that indeed you are, Peter called to teach and to teach what it is to be free. Hats off to you, my friend..Thank you for this masterpiece and I do mean masterpiece. God bless you..

(((( Hugs And Love, JoAnne ))))))

You awaken memories of Atlantis in such a beautiful way Peter!
It has always been a place of pristine thought and one to aspire to.
Splendid write once again, but you don't know any other kind;-)
