Food For Thought: EVERYTHING

A wise sage once stated, as his most memorable and enduring legacy, that to know what life was about, to understand how things worked, to comprehend the meaning of what we do and, more importantly, who we are, one should seek to hold as one’s most important guiding credo:  ‘Know thyself.’

Another sagacious gentlemen, born of a very wealthy family, said after meditating under a tree for quite some time, ‘Peace comes from within.’

Another wise brother of ours said once long ago, when pressed again and again by those around him to reveal in simple language what they should be doing in order to draw to themselves the things of the world they felt they so desperately needed to survive and be happy, the following:  ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, . . . and all these things shall be added unto you.’

In our modern age, a peaceful warrior who led a people to throw off the shackles of imperialism and establish a new independent nation based on spiritual principles, stated it with equal simplicity:  ‘Each one has to find his peace from within.

Many others have pointed us in the same exact direction.  Seems pretty clear to me.  How about you?

When one finally turns away from the distractions of the virtual reality matrix of this illusional realm, the ‘external’ material world of matter and movement and never-ending drama; when one succeeds in quieting and releasing the incessant mind-chatter of the superficial ego-self, and goes Within to seek the Core Essence of one’s True Eternal Beingness . . . . . . then one shall finally find EVERYTHING!

I encourage you to ponder these thoughts and, if it resonates to where you are ‘at’ in this particular Divine Moment of the Eternal Now, give it a go!  You have literally nothing to lose (well, maybe you do actually – strife, sorrow, loneliness, anger, despair . . . . those types of ‘things’) and, well, everything to gain!

QUESTION: Anger?

ANSWER:  The Christian Bible, Jesus, a day at the temple (‘. . .cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers . . . ‘).

Once in a while even this Ascended Master couldn’t hold himself back when confronted with horrific hypocrisy gone mad, and blatant manifestations of materialism, consumerism, and abject greed taking up residence in a supposedly ‘sacred space’ — even to the point of physical violence.  Not his best day, no doubt, but this episode lets us know that even the most ‘evolved’ among us have the right to release our so-called ‘negative emotions’ when pushed over the edge by nefarious forces (a little righteous indignation anyone?). . . . .  Important Note:  Apparently the only ‘injuries’ were to peoples’ egos and maybe some furniture, not bodies.   But WOW, did this tiny explosion of emotion over MONEY illicit a powerful reaction from the Controllers of that epoch!  It appears that Jesus could go all over and preach whatever he damn well pleased, but Yahweh forbid that he mess with their truly sacred financial system!  The priests of his time couldn’t allow THAT, now could they?

P.S. — To be clear, money at its core is only a means of exchange between apparently separate beings in the lower dimensions of Illusion, and has no intrinsic value or ‘energy’ outside of what those beings give to it (much less anything that can be labeled ‘positive’ or ‘negative’), especially fiat currencies (paper notes and little round metal discs, neither with anything backing them up except an abstract idea, a mental construct, an agreement). It is the placing of money, or any material thing, ‘above’ truly important things in a person’s or society’s hierarchal list of ‘priorities’, that is the core issue.  Jesus was obviously rebelling against that, and not the peaceful and equitable use of financial systems in general (I feel), which can have a valuable, useful place in evolved societies — IF the right attitudes, checks and balances are firmly in place, of course.

PPS – In other words, the expression of anger in and of itself, no matter what the particular issue, is NOT necessarily a completely ‘non-spiritual’ event.  In rare circumstances, under very specific conditions and with zero real physical harm being done, the conscious and focused and managed ‘venting’ of that emotion is justified, and even called for (versus its repression, which can lead to much worse scenarios).  I mean, if it worked for Jesus . . . . .

I AM (HAS) RISEN!

Today is the day Christians all over the world celebrate the ‘rising’ of Jesus the Christ from his apparent death at the hands of the Romans, via the conscious choice of the Jewish population at that time and in that place, who communicated their preference that Pontius Pilate release Barabbas from prison and condemn Jesus to death, rather the planned opposite (which is why Pilate ‘washed his hands’ of the whole deal).  And so it was.

He promised to return.  S/He hasThe Christ Is Risen, folks!  The Resurrection of the Spirit of Christ has indeed happened, again, and is surging forward at break-ego speed throughout the planet!  But not quite in the manner that traditional Christianity has always tried to portray the Second Coming as manifesting, of course.  THIS time, the Christ that we Are all a part of — often referred to as the Christ Consciousness, the Collective Spirit of Humanity, the Higher Self, the ‘I Am’ Presence, the Divine Spark we all carry within us, etc. — IS rising once again, within the breast of each and every one of us.  Right now!  It is quickly breaking down the illusional constraints of ego and pride and separation, and bursting forth with implacable power and grace and love, literally demanding our attention – and recognition.  Of Self.

Only one question remains for all of humanity collectively, and each ‘individual’ within its matrix:  Who shall accept and embrace this Divine Rebirth amongst us; and who shall continue to live in denial, fight tooth and nail against the inevitable dissolution of the fear-based ego structure, refuse to open the inner doors to Heaven on Earth???

      

 

 

 

 

 

Choice, my brothers and sisters — it all comes down to personal choice.  It’s nothing more, or less, than a Grand Pivotal Choice of your sacred free will.  No more indecision, no more hesitation, no more waffling, no more cowardice, no more excuses.  It’s time.  The critical moment has arrived.  This is y/our last chance to ‘do’ this for a very, very, very long time, and the last chance period to do this on/from Earth.  The ‘window’ of this opportunity shall soon close, and those who have chosen not to open their hearts and accept and ascend to and merge with That Which Is Truly Us shall once again sleep the long sleep.  So what’ll it BE? 

HAPPY EASTER!

Collectively, at this precise moment in space-time, humanity teeters on the very, very edge of a gaping dark chasm.  This chasm represents the divide between the Old Earth systems of limitation, duality, and restriction, and the New Earth systems of limitlessness, unity, and uninhibited glorious co-creation.  So who, I wonder, shall lead us over this murky chasm of chaos and uncertainty into the Promised Land of our Golden Age of Freedom?

What type of people are capable of this grand feat?  Who among us has no fear whatsoever of exploring new ways of doing things?  Who looks at ALL possible solutions to our current problems without prejudice or prejudgment?  Who among us has no self-imposed restrictions on their imaginations, or their creative juices?  Who among us still carries an insatiable curiosity about how things work, what makes things tick, and why?  Who do you know in this world that wakes up every single day with vim and vigor and a rare zest for life, eager to see what amazing things they can learn and do and accomplish, what new areas of activity they can investigate in order to make their lives — and the lives of the people around them — even more fun and interesting than it was yesterday, or is today?  Who in this crazy world is actually eager to help their fellow human beings enjoy life to the fullest, and eager to share that enjoyment with as many others as possible?  Hmmm.  Good question, huh?

There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago.  — J. Robert Oppenheimer

Why, OUR CHILDREN, of course!  The ‘little masters’ that have come into our lives, our households, our communities — without fear, without limits, and without any ‘programmed’ ideas of what is or is not possible in this blossoming new world.  These wise souls are the great leaders who will guide us into the exciting transformed world of our unfolding New Earth, show us how to ‘navigate’ this awesome new territory.  They’re naturals at it, you see.

Why do I feel this way?  For starters, it seems that every single luminary in our past – Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, Gandhi, Osho, Einstein, etc. – has encouraged us to become ‘like little children’ in our approach to learning, and living our lives.  What they meant, as some clearly spelled out, is not to revert to an uneducated person who is irresponsible or undisciplined, no; but rather, to return to our state of ‘innocence’, when life was a joy to live, everything was alive with vibration and color, every new day offered new experiences and adventures, and brightness and limitless positive possibilities – versus boring routine and stress and fear – ruled our attitudes and states of being.

For example, the quality of living only in the NOW moment – letting go of the past, and not worrying even a second about the future – is one of the greatest qualities any master can strive to develop — and one that kids have down pat naturally (until their parents and ‘modern’ society in general psychologically beats it out of them, of course).  Curiosity, open-mindedness, intensity of focus, constantly pushing the envelope of (and expanding) one’s skills and abilities, unrelenting faith in positive outlooks, irrepressible resiliency even in the face of injury or physical abuse, and especially the uninhibited expression of joy and love – are these not among the qualities that our children naturally display every day of their lives, and the same qualities that all of our Great Masters have encouraged us to develop in ourselves in order to reach the heights of both physical and spiritual achievement?  Is that just a ‘coincidence’ — or could it represent something more . . . . . meaningful?

It really humbles me sometimes when my little daughter reminds me, in the white flash of a joy-filled instant and without even trying, what is really important in life.  Most evenings she just can’t help but start giggling when it’s time to put her pajamas on, ‘cause she knows that there is a distinct possibility of the ‘tickle fingers’ making their auspicious appearance, coming out of nowhere to rock her world.  Her rib cage and neck are no match for the quick and agile tickle fingers, no matter how hard she tries to push them back!  But what really gets to me is this:  on those occasional nights when I’m a little bit bothered or tired or frustrated, distracted by something that happened (or didn’t happen) earlier that day, and just not feeling very playful; when her habit of running into the corner of our bed laughing to escape the ‘onslaught’ doesn’t produce it’s desired effect (the tickle fingers do not appear), oftentimes she actually comes back over towards me and grabs my fingers, pulling them towards her so she and Daddy can play a while.  And I am uplifted once again — and also deeply embarrassed and humbled — by the Little Master that has entered my world to help me understand more clearly what I am, and all of us are, really here for.

Now who could be better people than that to lead us worn out, battle-weary, aching old souls over the chasm of darkness and confusion, and into our glorious and vibrant collective future . . . . . .?
