It’s a profound feeling, sense, experience, whatever you want to call it, to approach the wondrous, loving Source of it all. I’ve been very emotional of late while visiting a place of few outward manifestations of such. New and adjusting, so it may just be my perspective and detoxing from the US. Lots to grok.
I’m not sure what to make of it.
I’m recalling dear friends, having deep endearing thoughts and feelings about my family and true friends, and appreciating the amazing love and tolerance of my wonderful mate…and our little puppy. Not really a puppy, she’s eight years old, but little. Funny how the unconditional love of a pet is so reassuring. She’s really grown up. She’s just a little 5 pound Yorkie, but she steals hearts like there’s no tomorrow.
I don’t remember when I’ve felt such an overwhelming love for things as I’m feeling right now. Maybe that experience I talked about in ‘Why Do We Weep’ cracked me open or called on Universe to envelope me. I don’t know. I hope it lasts.
I woke up in the night after that experience with an overwhelming sense of unspeakable love around me. And it’s peacefully calm and beautifully steady.
Leaving the United Snakes
It could have something to do with leaving the States and finally realizing my freedom a second time and doing so in my latter years that’s dawning on me. The gulag of “America” is an enrapturing trance. I left it when I was young and first awakened just out of college for that reason for over 20 years, but leaving it the second time was much more difficult and took some forays into a few possibilities to get the rust off.
The American snare is much more complicated now, while appearing otherwise. Be forewarned if you choose to challenge the snare. It’s strong, deceptive and ugly.
I pity those who can’t think clearly or freely enough to see that country for what it is. Its tentacles, like that of the full-on matrix, are smarter and stronger than most would like to admit. Cleverly induced thinking that their people are free, even relatively free, is their biggest control weapon. Oddly enough the rest of the world falls for it, too, as the US of Corps devastates one innocent country, and economy, after another. All while these devoured countries and cultures seek to imitate its phony “freedoms”.
Clever bastards. And sad to the bone.
This subject deserves a full-on rant all its own and I’ll probably crack another one out in time, but suffice it to say it’s a very sick place. Hence very sick people. Very, very sad, when there are so many you love dearly sucking on its demonic teats and thinking they’re healthy, growing and secure. Orwellian doesn’t even closely cut it.
Love Wins All
The world, or “whirled” as my beloved sister would say, is an amazing place. Trying to figure out what’s really going on here is quite the trip. I’m very happy I came, despite the pain and confusion. Apparently we chose this mission and I subscribe to that. No amazing consciousness such as the human “being” – a revelation all in itself – would make such an unconscious decision as to whether to engage this matrix called life on earth or not.
We’re here for a reason.
Reasoning is by definition way too linear, but suffice it to say there’s purpose, there’s meaning in everything we do, say, think, intend and even observe. We each have power beyond what we can conceive. That’s what they are trying to hide from us with their stifling promised “fantasyland” illusions. It’s a literal war on our true spirit and consciousness.
That’s where love comes in.
It’s all love, an act of love. Whatever befalls us, it’s love. That may seem counter intuitive as we witness the horrific world events, atrocities and injustices falling about our ears but it’s still true. Maybe I’m privileged to not have been subjected to the barbaric treatment that people like the Palestinians have endured at the hand of the wicked Zionists or so many similar affronts to humanity, but I’m still part of the equation in my own, oppressed way.
We all have our crosses to bear, so to speak. Perhaps the purpose of that meme is to make us accept it like it’s something good.
Still, as they cynically say, no one gets out of here alive.
Ha – little do they know! We’re forever already!
It’s all part of the plan. Thought out or not. Purposely prepared by whomever or whatever or not.
We are living in an intelligent Universe guided by Love. The underlying fabric of everything is Love.
Never doubt that. Never. Ever.
In that deep enduring knowledge of Love, Zen
“If somehow we could be given a pill to be convinced don’t worry it’s going to
turn out okay, would that illicit from us our greatest creativity and courage?
No, it’s that knife edge of uncertainty where we come alive to our truest power.” – Joanna Macy
Zen Gardner’s book, ‘You Are the Awakening’, examines the dynamics of the awakening to a more conscious awareness of who we are and why we are here — dynamics which are much different from the programmed approach of this world we were born into.
In order to tap into the limitless source of our full potential, any change we seek in the world begins with eash of us individually. Grounded in this understanding, ‘You Are the Awakening’ will help to inform, empower and encourage anyone who is on this wonderful path of realizing our infinite potential.
