On this episode of Living Myth, Michael Meade speaks about moments when myth and fact approach each other, momentous times that the Greeks called Apocairos. Addressing the moments of threat and uncertainty created by the bombastic statements made by Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un, Meade opens up the mythic ground of “apocalypsis” that remind us that the world has been on the brink of annihilation many times before, and yet continues because of the slight edge that the energies of creation have over the energies of destruction.
This recording is full of surprising ideas about war and peace, the role of elders in times of threat and what each of us can do to be on the ground of creation, on the side of peace and in the fields of endless imagination. (26 min)
It is true the human race is under attack, the easiest way to formulate the story is by a physical war. This battle we wage is not physical though. Our thoughts are manipulated in ever so subtle ways, if we are not paying attention we will fall. We have indeed fallen and when we view the world as it is today we can see it quite clearly.
The message is the same in the trailers before the movie started ~ we are under attack, and the only way to save ourselves, is to change ourselves, not by pointing at another and saying, “You falter here”, but being brave enough to take that statement and ask ourselves, “Are we faltering here?”
Peace will never come about if we are intent on making everyone else ‘wrong’ or ‘bad’. It will only come about if we focus and work toward making our self ‘better’ than we were before.
Do you believe in love?
Can you find love in your heart? Do you look yourself in the mirror and pick apart the image you see? Are you constantly using negative self talk? If so, you are most likely using this same communication with everyone you encounter as well.
Habits are difficult to break. It is possible though to change the way we talk to ourselves, and others ~ to change the way we think. When we do this, the way we see the world will shift. If done on a grand scale, there may be hope for us all.
Peace is in our choice ~ so is a vile nature. Which one will be fostered?
Let your peaceful words be heard!
Thoughts, actions, words can reflect so much, be the change you wish to see in this world, speak it, think it, do it and manifest it into reality. Collective consciousness rising.
For several hours I relax and paint. I am at peace. I view the finished art and am quite satisfied. I seal it and set it aside to dry while I cook dinner.
After supper, I sit at the computer and Whoa!! A wave of energy hits me, definitely intense and not so pleasant. I remember this is only energy, and it will pass … I breathe … and it fades.
I turn to the music and let it roll through my mind.
I wear my Garnet chain with the Ruby in Zoisite stone. I was drawn to the chain and pendant right away when I entered the Mystery Gallery yesterday afternoon.
The Garnethas long been known as the Warrior’s Stone. Soldiers wore or carried this stone as a talisman against death or injury. Garnet was also said to bring victory, peace and tranquility, as well as help heal injuries.
Ruby in Zoisiteis an energy amplification that can energize the entire vibrational field of one’s body. It is used for psychic ability and empowerment, as well as altered states of consciousness. Ruby in Zoisite stimulates the crown chakra. Physically, it is beneficial for heart disorders and for physical vitality.
I suppose it is no wonder I am at peace. I am not attributing it to the new pretties, however I do love them. I also have complete and utter faith in that which guides me. I know in my heart that what is for everyone’s highest and greatest good will be. I will not fret about it.
