Stand My Ground

image

I want out of this systematic way of life, but I do not see the way. I head for the direction out but it is always blocked. I would live in a tree by a lake. It would not be a community, just a place I could exist. I would grow a garden and fruit bearing trees. I would catch fish and show respect for the nourishment they provide me and my family. I would not be too busy for my daughter everyday and stressed out every night. I would not worry about having leaders with power hungry agendas. I would not worry about the poison being spread through food supplies, water, air, entertainment and news. I would not fear about the instability of an economy based on debt as a means to slavery. I would not worry about all the obligations and expectations of a blinded herd. But right now I still worry and fear all of those things. There is no plot of land that is safe from the intentions of the elite and the reckless reactions of the herd. I can not opt out of this madness, I can only face it and stand my ground…

Not For Me

It is in a sheep’s nature to be trusting and submissive to its herder. They have no quarrel with hidden agendas. It is all about grazing. Minimal awareness is needed to achieve this state of being. It is a pleasant life, no doubt about it. It is just not for me.

Gravity Turned

Gravity pulls us in.  It is a beautiful thing. 

Where We Reside

I peeled myself away from politics when I realized; we can modify the system forever and see no change in results due to the fact that we inevitably manifest what is inside of us. I really love the story of Jesus, whether it happened or not makes no difference to the lesson. His state of mind was in Heaven rather than Hell, which we can all achieve, resulting in Heaven on Earth per-say (remind me not to use that word next time). That was the beautiful side of the lesson, but, there is always a but… The ugly side of the lesson is that it is extremely hard to be the only one. That is where the battle of good vs evil comes to play. It is an intricate world of our own conscious energy competing for different truths that will lead us down different paths. Where does your state of mind reside in? How does that effect the world around you? I am not a Christian or any other follower of religion. I am a human with much to learn from all.

Filling the Void

Love is a constant, but it is to be chosen in all aspects of life.  It is always there but our own expectations and conditioning determine the taste and we either reject or accept it.  That is how different people are able to love completely different people/things.  We all develop different tastes for what is abundant.

After realizing that it’s always there, we can allow ourselves to genuinely love everyone/everything without attachment or expectation.  This helps us to see and appreciate people/things for who/what they are and understand their purpose.  Even bad tasting people/things have their purpose, and the irony is that it is only love that can convert bad tasting people/things into good (good and bad being relative to the taster).  Real love gives genuine purpose to be beneficial or better tasting to the other without wagering on anything.  If there are expectations, love can’t be felt because it is an agreement based on desires and expectations.  Like a job that you would not go to if you were not getting paid for it.  The money may be worth it, but your life is empty if you spend it outside of fulfillment.

If searching to fulfill our desires we can’t find love, it is because we’re searching to fulfill our desires instead of being open to love.  Love is not desire.  Love is the substance, desire is something that happens after the taste and trying to fill up on sweetener is not healthy.  After realizing that, the deception potentially comes into play.  This is where we consider the likeliness of our desires being exploited and manipulated to benefit the other instead of having a mutual appreciative relationship.  The irony of this is that it is our own desires we have come to love, and we can’t figure out why we can’t fill the voids inside of us.  Here is why; we identify ourselves through other people, especially people who are close to us.  This goes both ways.  We also identify others through ourselves.  If we have just noticed that we only love an expectation that the other has to try to live up to, we also know that the other might be doing just the same.  We will never truly know or love each other in a way we can experience or appreciate.  The love will be there but it won’t be eaten, both will be left hungry and the void will grow.

A tree told me…

The pain of your life forms the branches which reach toward the light, bearing your brightest colors. As long as you grow toward the energy that nourishes you, you will thrive. Growing is painful, pain is strengthening, strength is energy, and energy creates beauty. A tree told me that.
