Stuck in the Field of Battle

We are dealing with many new things coming to light in this lifetime. 

We will choose whether to understand or to condemn what is new to us or what seems out of place or wrong. 

We have had sides for as long as we know which gives creation to battlefields.

This is because balance must persist in harmony with our actions.

By choosing sides balance must persist with an equal degree of opposition.

Now it is time to find ways to bring the sides together (not just in battle) and see it as a formula, knowing that energy does not dissipate, it only moves.

Choosing sides will not make the other side less real.  It is like pain or fear, you have to face it or it will just get louder and louder.

Be humble and curious rather than righteous and condemning and you will find yourself free of the battlefield.

Both Ways

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

Now I forgot which way that goes…

Remember Our Future

When we go, we stop staying still

When we say yes, we say no to what is not yes

When we are happy, it is due to our capacity to feel sad

When we forget our past, we remember our future

It Will Move

Everything is in context or in relation to another

Even that which is set in stone

is erased by the motion of life

What can we know without a doubt?

It will move.

Pendulum of Justice

Nothing has been more detrimental to the growth of humanity

than the finger that points blame

The Choice

We feed the spirits we keep

I can see it clearly in others

If I could be so empowered to see it in myself

I could distinguish my own spirits

I could feed the chosen ones

The Nature of Peace

In fighting death

We destroy life

Crowding the battlefield

In search of peace

When peace is a place

far from the battlefield

far from justice

far from blame

far from right

far from the reasons to fight, to fear, to condemn, to control

It is found within

With the absence of fear

It is an art

Not a science

It is passive

Not aggressive

It is health

Not medicine

It is a way

Not a fix

It is a solution

Not a cry for help

It comes from neither victim nor persecutor

And the nature of peace, or the absence of fear, is completely insane and nutty to binary logic so it is best to not look outside for it.  Good luck and know that you are on your own.  On your own, fearlessly empowered to find what the world would lead you away from.
