The earth is submerged in darkness. A voice of light that comes from the beginning of time resounds at the edge of the portal where the angels live. It is the resounding of the march of the mountains awakening every living being on the face of the earth and calling the angels. It is the sound that calls the beginning of a new era. The gray cloak that once covered the sky is transformed into radiant light. All forces manage to unite to grant a new opportunity.

Now is the time to live with determination, wisdom and humility. Thanking our ancestors and the environment for giving us a second chance. Celebrating with the commitment to use this new era to improve each other.

The Last March of Destiny

Ever moving
Ever proving
Ever changing
Never ceasing
E’er increasing

Far, and a distant call
Echoes at the edge of forever;
Angelic voices hang in air.
Hear the dawning of a new day,
A new age of the earth.

Rises the sun of life,
And the voices sing it into birth.
Hear the call, all of creation singing,
Arise! Arise!

Slowly, on the edge of time,
Rising up in the golden light,
There awakes a destiny,
And the mountains move,
Rumbling under earth;
And the stirring air
Lifts the waiting veil.

We lift up our eyes,
We open our arms,
We lift up our voice,
We open our hearts
To this new destiny,
Filled with harmony and light,
Surrounding, embracing,
Bestowing brand new life!
