Commitments

What are you committed to?

This can feel like a loaded question. Often we are afraid to tell others what we are committed to, for inevitably there will be those who deem inappropriate or silly that which we deem important.

I ponder this question, and I know it is not something that can be answered in a matter of minutes, no … this one requires deep thought and consideration. Some of the things I am committed to:

My pets, my friends (which seem to be few), myself (not necessarily in this order, anymore). I am committed to speaking truth, to not baring false witness against anyone, to taking long hard looks into the depths of me and find out what is making me tick, where are my triggers, and how can I alleviate them.

I am committed to seeing beauty in this world that tries so hard to strip it from my view. I am committed to finding this same beauty in me, and blocking those who would have me see something else. I am dedicated to seeing the best potential in all situations and people, and if I cannot see it, then I turn away and try to remain silent so as not to cause damages I cannot see.

It is difficult to remain silent on subjects we see around this world, in the people, and what many do. The easiest way I have found is to turn it around and begin to reflect on what part of the outside world do I find within myself, and then mend that.

It is a daunting task, this shift creation, and it always begins and ends with our inner workings. It is all too easy to point fingers and say the blame, or problem, lies within someone else, or somewhere else … and quite difficult to find these things in our own being. Rarely does one choose to pick themselves apart, and it is no wonder. Most of life is built in defending ones self from the outward attacks of others, and so we lash out, giving what we receive.

Change comes in giving what we wish to receive, and no matter how often we are given the opposite, a continuation of goodness must be poured forth in order to change the balance of things. This ‘alchemy’ is the most difficult of all. It has taken lifetimes of training to get where we are, and to undo the learned habits will not be easy.

Only the true warrior will attempt it,
The rest will continue to shift responsibility to others,
Who are doing the same.

There are many tools to allow time and space to stand still for a moment, while we reflect on that which is needing attention, the mala and mantra, meditation, exercise, time in nature … knowledge brings us closer to our goals. Listen to Spirit, for what you need to know and understand is so desperately trying to reach you. Give it a chance.

Truth Is Simple

I think you know … despite all that may have been said, or the tantrums experienced, Love, Joy, creating Peace, Sharing and Caring are where true strength is. Everything else, ALL else, is an attempt to thwart it.

We can look around us and see how the emotions of people are being manipulated by circumstances they have no control over. The body and mind, being mostly water, are affected in an intense way by all the currents of electromagnetic waves being sent here and there, moving through the human body and mind.

The body is one big antenna. It picks up on signals we cannot audibly hear, and reacts. Unless we are aware of the subtle energies and how they move through us and their affect on the emotional charge we hold in our mind, we will be subject to them. When aware of these things, we can recognize them when they occur and head them off at the pass, so to speak.

When we begin to realize and recognize these manipulations we can better look around us and see them in the reactions we experience in others when they interact with us. These invisible signals are combined with dogma, which instills a fear in people (if you don’t believe this, or if you dress like that, etc. etc. you’ll be punished eternally sort of stuff).

When fear is sufficiently implanted in the minds of people, then this fear can be manipulated using these invisible signals … see? Breaking free from fear is difficult, shedding the rules and regulations mankind has imposed on the spirits of their fellow brothers and sisters is hard.

Joy and Peace are the desire of ‘most’ people. Some have gone too far into darkness, and we can only hope they’ll find their way out of it. The main focus ought to be on breaking free from the chains of imposed fear, and then creating that which we wish to see in this world … Joy, Peace, Sharing, Caring.

Suspicion and Fear, Anger and Jealousy ~ These thing inhibit proper formation of Love and Compassion. There are those on the ‘job’, their duty is to unbalance Love and instill Fear. The few who do these things desire to see a shrinking of Love given in the world … and through fear and paranoia they have been succeeding.

But we see this now, don’t we? To hole up and not give of ourselves is to essentially cut off from every possibility of creating good. If we are not open to the possibility of pain, then we are also closed off from the possibility of Love … this reality we all wish more of. We CAN have it, but it requires courage, and willingness to bear the attack of the those who wish to kill love.

We are warriors of Love, and although it may appear we are losing the battle, it is quite the contrary. In fact, I like to think the dark deeds of those destroyers are back-firing on them, for they have opened the eyes of many to the stark contrast between shadow and light, making it more apparent what has been going on.

Choice ~ It is where your power resides. You have everything within you needed to win this battle.  This fight isn’t with swords or guns or fists … it is of spirit. Although this is what the bible tells us, that story is filled with half truths, just enough truth to confuse. Rather than rely on the book alone, trust in your personal connection to Spirit, to the Divine which desires to have union with each and every Soul … with You.

Trust the inner messages coming your way, do not doubt. Other people have no authority over this relationship each individual holds with Creator. Every person has a unique and personal connection to that Spark which wants the very best for humanity, for ALL life. If the inner intuitive messages are of Love and Kindness, trust them … if they are dark and desire you to harm anything, anyone, or yourself, they are of the parasitic invader, who is longing for destruction.

This is a serious matter, and there are those who have cultivated your passivity by asking you to give up your authority, handing it to someone else who will save you, and while ‘some’ of what they say may be true, the One who longs to save you also needs His warriors … and that is You … and Me … WE.

Fragmented Soul

War ~
Some are very good at it, and while they fight, the other half of them – dies.

Dedicating LIFE to make WAR is nonsensical. Our men (and women) who decide to do this, fighting in conflicts which have no bearing or threat to their own country, is insane. They give up their opportunity for peace, and they take opportunity for peace from others … on orders from men who would never put themselves in these positions. Of course there are life-long members of this game they play, they got into it and discovered they enjoy the chaos, probably because they cannot stand to be alone with themselves and their thoughts of what they’ve become. And if they DO like what they’ve become … they are lost.

Someone once told me to stay away from those who serve more than one term. They said ‘once and done’ … but if people stay longer than that, it means they enjoy killing and ought to be forgotten, steered wide of.

I have no doubt that innocence when enlisting is crushed. What comes out of that, what the ‘powers that be’ hope to create, is a killing machine – that’s their goal, to keep needless war going.

The fragmented soul has no power to create peace … within themselves or anywhere else, for peace begins in the mind. Those intent on destruction have not this capacity. There are the strong few who turn about and, with great effort, flip the poles of who they are and what they do, and it takes constant effort to undo the damage done. The slightest trigger can flip them right back to where they were, in destroy mode.

See, governments have no desire for people to be at peace. It’s always a war on this and a war on that … never is it about peace. Sure, they might call it a ‘peace mission’, failing to see that bringing chaos to any situation will never result in the ‘peace’ they speak of.

I pray for you, fragmented soul. I pray that you will have the strength and courage to leave behind what you’ve been told to believe, and the stamina to create a new reality for yourself, one which includes the contribution of soothing the pain and the suffering being birthed in this world. My hope is that you find your way out of the chaotic darkness that was handed you, and enmeshed in your psyche.

May healing and rebirth come to all in the world.
May sorrow become joy,
And may chaos become peace.
Let Balance Be.

He said, She said … How long has this been going on? Argument … consistent, never ending, argument. Who is right and who is wrong? Is there any such thing?

Has a human ever found it easy to place themselves in a situation they find someone else in, before making an assessment? I am aware there are many cultures who cultivate certain responses, certain controls of self, and nurture their ability to have compassion and understanding for others.

There are others who practice thinking before speaking … resting with emotion, and rather than let the emotion be in charge of what comes out the mouth, they choose to not say a word, until later, after the adrenaline slows.

It seems the tendency to jump to conclusions is prevalent nowadays though … it is seen plainly, every day, wherever one may find themselves.

Becoming older, learning to break habits and alter the ‘training’ learned from youth, to shed the person of the past, is a true blessing. Just to have the opportunity to recreate that which we are is HUGE!! So many people never see it, so many people stay in the strangle hold of that which someone else gave them to wear.

In youth, it is often that someone else forms who we are. How the hair is worn, what fashion is adopted, if any, how we speak, or act in public, what we eat, how we chew, whether we say please or thank you, or ask permission at all, whether we take, or give, acknowledge lack peacefully, or strive to have more and more.

If fortunate to live long enough, this point becomes noticeable, opportunity arises to recreate that person-hood who we walk through life being. Shedding habits, forgiving others, in order to hopefully, one day forgive self, lightening the load of humanity and assisting in making positive change for the world, bringing light and song and joy to the day, every day that is consciously chosen.

There will always be someone to try and stop it … to create doubt and feelings of insufficiency … this is their reality and they try to impose it into others lives … to make others wear who and what they are (… in that particular moment).

You do not have to bear that load for them, the energies you produce will always be spent on what you allow them to be spent on.

Power is in Choice … every day, you wield it.

 

Battle Of Truth Against Error

“There’s nothing any more sorry than to see people who claim to be Christians, but so weak they fall down at every circumstance. There’s nothing beautiful about that … Let’s awake to strength.”

“Our weapons are not carnal, earthly, or fleshly, and any time we pick up these kinds of weapons, we’re out of the battle, because we’re not in God’s army. Many are not ready to fight because they don’t have victory over too many conditions. They can’t fight right because they get hateful and ugly.”

“The battle isn’t what false leaders would teach us: with sword and physical bloodshed. It’s a battle of truth against error.”
