As you argue about my innocence, I’ll stoke the fire. The spice of it is the most extreme by far.
I quietly begin to hang my clothes. As I raise my arm to place them in the closet I catch a whiff of myself. I smell just like a man! I laugh a little as I notice this and the thought that each of us carry both halves of the whole within our being is affirmed, noting that we are more alike than many care to admit.
I consider what objects will be gifted to those in need. The amount of ‘stuff’ keeps accumulating! One person does not need all of this! I’ll organize, then remove that which is rarely utilized.
Release can be difficult … of clothes, of any material objects, of emotions such as anger, jealousy, or fear, of habits that have become so well practiced they are not noticed any more. When something is lost it can be a challenge not to jump to the conclusion someone ‘stole’ it, or ‘forced’ the loss. Repetitive thought habits are the most difficult to release. This is because they are not released, they are transformed into new thought forms which are more beneficial.
I sit for a few minutes and I think about the planet and it’s cycles … it’s 5,000 year cycles. Humanity becomes too smart for their own good after this length of time. It is proven in the mass destruction which is apparent at the end. It is interesting, as those who have accumulated monetary wealth and a portion of power struggle to retain and maintain their treasure. It is a relief knowing they will lose it … for they have not yet learned to share properly.
The low hum of repetitive sound fills the room.
I break free from the current process to find anger reflected over information shared. It is intriguing how some will fight tooth and nail to prove someone wrong rather than simply look at the information as an outsider, without emotional attachment. Has this response been ‘trained’ into the human mind?
A man is all jacked up because a ‘block’ has been put on his content. He swears, he fits, and he screams for attention, demanding that this block is removed. A viewer stated that he ought to continue with his talk, that maybe someone will take notice and he will get the attention he seeks. He replied that ‘liberals’ love to label people instead of asking why they feel the way they do … I do not think he is aware that he just labeled someone all while being quite foul.
Curious why random phrases draw responses from surprise sources. I suppose it is reminder that nothing is private, or hidden.
The below link really isn’t related to these thoughts other than I find it fascinating how truth can be right in front of our faces, yet denied adamantly, while so many fight with each other about who is a conspiracy theorist, or who prefers to live in a comfortable little box. Amazing stuff here!
… And here I’ll leave it.
I recently attended a shamanic drum journey session with a group of others. As it finished and I talked with my journey partner I wondered to myself, “Why do I sometimes feel like a ‘child’ when I talk to other people?”
It’s as if my vulnerability in the face of their ‘having it together’ leaves me feeling naive, and yet, inside of me there is great courage and strength and wisdom.
I supposed it is the look in their eyes as they measure me up, categorizing me. Perhaps my feeling ‘as a child’ is actually an empathic absorption of their view of me …
Something to contemplate.
Regardless, I will continue to show vulnerability and be true to my authentic self. After all, this person I call ME is the only one I will spend every single moment of my life with.
As a youngster in school we had sports. Instructor would call out captains for the two sides who would then call out their pick for their team, one row on one side, one row on the other, huddling together as the team grew to make a group decision when their next choice came. Always, every time, I would be the last one called. No one wanted me on their team. It really hurts to be that one.
In the unseen realm there are others who watch, they determine who is who. The only difference here from before is they are unseen, and they can hear the inner workings of all mankind. It’s not about whether you play sports well, but about how sturdy the mind, how gentle the heart, how strong the will. The test is in the capacity to endure, yet maintain compassion.
For so long no one wanted me as a team member, today, I expect the same. No matter what I will continue to try, not to please others, but to test myself. Team of one, holding my own, wearing a smile that is genuine. For in trying, I have given my all, and am quite satisfied with just that. No one else need confirm or deny, whether seen or unseen, my ability … they are free to think what they like … and so am I. We are connected, anyway.
Too long humanity has been asleep while other ‘forces’ have laid waste to the land and the waters. They have been permitted to lead mankind into war, walking straight into death, and killing. They have created story-lines to be followed, which seem interesting and exciting, perhaps downright catastrophic … but it is only a story, a ‘creation’.
Eyes are opening and hearts are bursting with a love for the planet, indeed, growing for each other, as what has taken place is seen. No longer do people wish to blindly go where they are told, they are considering the path which is being laid out for them.
Personal authority is being embraced, ownership of actions is taking place. The inner integrity of many is coming to the forefront and questions arise as to the agenda of the ‘elite’.
Actions which create our overall reality are seen and processed. “Who are they who tell the world they must war with each other? What is all the fighting for, really?” There are but a few which seem to control the many. The realization of the many is developing, knowledge that they are just as equal in creator-ship as those few. The difference between them seems to be what is desired as ‘creation story’.
Message from the Leopard:
All that you desire is within your grasp. Upon creation you were given by Divine Providence all that you need to manifest your desires. It is up to you ~ will you use this opportunity for creative manifestation, or foolishness?
There are two sides to every story. Some call one set of these two ‘Patriarchy’ and ‘Matriarchy’ We have seen over time, throughout centuries and many civilizations, that Matriarchy involves birthing life, nurturing, healing, while Patriarchy is usually associated with force, dominance and destruction.
There must be balance between these two, primarily. In my humble opinion, the balancing of wealth must take place as well. What is it considered to be? Wealth to me means health, good foods, sharing and caring between people, assisting each other when in need. There are others who believe wealth is ‘stuff’, like cars and money and title. When these things are balanced sufficiently, all of the rest will fall into place.
Try spending a few hours of the day paying attention … no WiFi, no social media … Just Divine energies, silence, and you ~ Listen for the message.
As I sat there in pain, pale as I’ve never seen myself, one says, “Lift your feet, lean back, just sit there for awhile,” while another says, “Are you okay, are you on the clock?”
I think on this event as I sit here drinking my morning coffee. The first, is a hard worker, intense and studious to task, she works the land she dwells on and states it is not easy owning property, it requires a lot of hard work, and yet she comes in daily to earn her pay as well. The second, I am told does not really need the money or this job, she comes in as a favor to the owner. While quite nice, (I had believed her to be one of the nicest), yesterdays statement/question leaves me pondering her heart.
Thinking of ‘money’ before the ‘well-being’ of our fellow mates is an awful thing to wear in the heart. Imagine a soul whos only care is what is given, not considering for a moment what is received.
I clock out, every day, and continue to work while I eat my lunch. It has always been this way, I am dedicated to getting the work out in as little time as possible and do not mind giving a little, every day, to see that this happens. It is apparent that my gift of time is not noticed, or seemingly taken into account on this one occasion when I am hit with a surprise, intestinal malady. Twenty minutes is what it took for me to be able to move, the sweating subsided and color returned to face, no longer feeling as though I might pass out.
It is these little things which tell the hearts of humanity. The subtle things which can be explained and justified. I am certain the second feels no shame in thinking of money before my health, if she even thinks of the situation at all.
Today, as she walks in cheerily saying good morning, I will return the greeting, yet I know now a little more than before of the inner workings of this one in particulars heart, and it is not something I would choose as friend.
Be observant, notice these things. As you remain cordial, even friendly, beware the hearts that only take, and do not give.
Not knowing, they assume … thinking they know better than the experiencer, they become judgmental and cruel, lacking awareness that their behavior, which is based on ‘lack of knowing’, causes them to spew negativity.
So it is in the world.
Only when there is an awareness of how an individuals own actions and words affect the whole, and a conscious choice is made to be more kind, will things shift.
Fortunately, many people are doing just this.
Good people, who are adored and respected, admired for their successes, have this habit of judging without full knowledge. Some call it ‘leadership skills’.
Stepping back and simply observing, however, one begins to see the constant barrage of negativity coming from mouths. Good intentions, mixed with lack of empathy, really do no one any good. The ‘I know better than you’ mentality, I believe, is partially responsible for the state we now find ourselves in.
It takes a lot of courage, back bone, and a strong will to step away from this, and firmly plant the feet in our own awareness, moving forward as we know is best for us in any given moment, in a wide set of circumstances.
You know best … you know whether it is beneficial to your present ‘beingness’ and those who your life is touching. You know. You are much wiser than, perhaps, you have let yourself believe. Deep within you is an abundant flow of advice. No words are spoken there, yet the information comes through just the same.
Allow yourself the freedom to be YOU. In kindness love grows. In pain compassion is multiplied. An understanding is gained through your experiences which will benefit others.
Be gentle. The world needs gentleness. A healing must take place and it begins in your own mind. Nurture yourself with positive thought and affirmation. When you understand how wonderful you are, you will begin to see this sameness in those you see around you. Even when they are cruel … for truly, they do not know what they do.
