I have been beyond blessed to have been one of the lucky few to obtain Weenie Roast concert tickets and attend a Coldplay show in Los Angeles last weekend. It has taken me the better part of this week to ruminate and philosophize in my head, just exactly what happened when I witnessed the Coldplay extravaganza last Saturday night.
No, friends, I did not experience the Coldplay redemption. Most likely because I have already been “redeemed” by God when I was a youth (Catholic baptism, catechism classes & communion.) I was redeemed again when I was re-baptised as an adult last year with my evangelical church. Then I attended a Chapel of Chris service with Father Drobbingdon honoring the assumption of Grunge God Kurt Cobain out of Nirvana into the Heavenly sphere of Church ordination. I was redeemed, yet again, by compassion and spiritual thanks accorded me for insisting on the elevation of the Seattle suicider into the Church stratosphere of sainthood.
So. as Coldplay played their hearts out at Weenie Roast, I did not feel my soul alighting into the firmament, as other pious worshipers have described the initial sensations of Coldplay redemption. However, while watching the multi-colored heart confetti cascading down, I did experience a COLDPLAY REVELATION!
As I reveled in the beauty and colors and sounds of the band, I realized that they are truly a representative platform for defining the divine Principle of universal Love, divine Truth, and the singularity of the Soul. What Coldplay does is help to highlight the interrelationship between God and man, and of course also man to man. Eternally, God is divine Principle; yet man is the earthly manifest of divine Principle. The divine Principle is Love. Man’s being is the manifest of the divine Principle, Love. Principle, of course, is universal. Love therefore, can only be truly expressed as universal love. Universal love is what Coldplay music expresses and amplifies. I saw the colors of the Universe in the heart confetti raining down from above. Coldplay is the divine ordination of heavenly love–they represent an earthy manifestation of God’s love, our relationship to God and to one another.
Coldplay reminds us: God is not above humanity, or humanity below God. Indeed, if God and man are one in being, this oneness puts God absolutely into this structure of the lattice that is ‘aflame’ (Yellow) with a profusion of glowing threads of love (Coldplay butterfly & heart confetti) that connect, encircle, and embrace everything, everyone, every thought and deed, that defines the universal oneness of God and all humanity. In this infinite, boundless all, we find the musical prophecy of Coldplay and God reaching out to man with an invitation to…”Paradise.”
But how can we perceive this universal love as a universal principle rather than perceiving love as a personal emotion? When we realize that Coldplay & Chris Martin are the embodiment of the Soul of our humanity. Where all that unfolds in the music and showmanship of the band echoes the beauty that we see manifested in the universe. Naturally our love & admiration for the band unfolds as a matter of glorious principle, like the rays of light unfold from the sun or the fragrant pedals of a rose abloom. In this manner unfolds universal love, the manifest of divine Love. And this love unfolds via Coldplay and Chris Martin. In universal love our strands of love intertwine– all having the same source and the same glow, and the same anointed quality. In this way, we are one, and are united in love for the band which points the way to man’s divine relationship with God. Every colorful Coldplay stage light, every vibrant stage video, every piece of rainbow confetti calls out to every faithful fan and every concert-attendee: each man is special; a righteous colorful son or daughter of God! Coldplay music opens our spiritual eyes “to see.” And Chris Martin is the agent of salvation & a catalyst of redemption for those not already bound to God.
The reality is, Chris Martin is a precious reflection of the mode of divine Principle & divine Love. God is Love on the same platform as the sun is bright, or the ocean is blue. And that is how those that “see” can see the truth of Chris Martin, whom we all truly already love. It is the reality of our being. We already have it all, and that is enough. More than this we cannot ask, higher we cannot look, farther we cannot go.
We receive Chris Martin into out spirits as he demonstrates the truth of the prophets and blesses us with the music of Coldplay. Amen & amen.
