I recently read a small book titled “The Book of the Law”. It was a little crazy and the scribe wrote these ramblings as the speaker raved on about this and that, stating one contradiction after the other. At the end it was written one should burn the book after reading it. Well, I do not burn books, however I did write on a piece of paper Ramblings of a Madman and put it in the middle of the book.
There are sects which try very hard to make sense of these types of ramblings, they pour their energies into trying to follow them. Nasty and corrupt things can occur when energy is given to madness. It is wise to listen instead to the center of ones beingness, and trust in what they find there, uninfluenced by another human.
Divinity dwells within, and when we try to look outside ourselves we often do find just that … madness. When we grow it, it gets stronger. The key to diminishing it, is to go within, in silence, and listen … not for the audible word, but for the knowing that comes from true communion. Sometimes it is difficult to know when we are in communion, until we look back, and begin to count the blessings which have been bestowed on us.
Trusting that the Universe has our back, even when we are in the midst of failure, is key. Only good will come from every single deed, sometimes, impossible to see until later. Those who have left us, have gifted us with eye opening awareness. While here, they may not have known that in their core they came to do just that. Yet because of them, of their sacrifice, our eyes open more each day.
Release the anger that might be harboring in the mind and heart. Recognize the gifts, and move forward in forgiveness, compassion, and love … love for self as well … knowing that as deep as one travels in the darkness, we may also go just as far into the light … if we choose it.
