NORMAN, OK — As fate would have it, I was one of the estimated 1.5 million people who travel from city-to-city in America each day on the tenth anniversary of the now infamous demolition of the World Trade Center complex in New York City on September 11, 2001. While some drama was noted on a few flights, my flight went as smoothly as a warm knife through butter.
Even though I carried gear up the proverbial wazoo — laptop in the backpack and bag with video camera, microphones, and more — I passed through security with no undo delay. Extra steps were being taken. On certain flights people were randomly stopped by TSA agents and asked to present ID cards and boarding passes before boarding the plane.
While I hadn’t forgotten about the 9/11 event, the extra precautionary steps then made sense.
The world does certainly remember 9/11. The government and media have seen to that. To varying degrees they’ve been molding the public perception of the events that led up to, and have transpired since that sorrowful tragedy where 3,000 people’s lives ended. From the U.S. Open Tennis championships, to the NFL, 9/11 became a context point around which to make meaningless activity sound meaningful, and make unconscionable actions on our parts sound justifiable. Don’t get me wrong; I love tennis, and like football, but in the scheme of things, neither is likely to foster the kind and depths of introspection that would assist in one’s spiritual liberation.
The statement, “War is unconscionable. There are no winners,” can contribute toward spiritual liberation. It happens as we take stock of what is, and is not working beneficially in our life, and make changes.
I can’t tell you what have we “won” through war in the 10 years since 9/11, but I can tell you a few things that we’ve lost.
Freedom is one. While the shock of the event itself was still making itself through the public consciousness, the Patriot Act was signed into law by George W. Bush on October 26, 2001. The provision broadened the government’s power to execute wire taps, searches, and seizures. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) also grew out of this event. They added an entirely new set of hoops — scans, restrictions for carry-on liquids, searches, etc. — for travelers to jump through.
There are many who can detail the legislative and social changes far better than me. I simply ask the question, do you think we are safer now? Are we happier now? Or freer now? If your answer is no, don’t blame the Democrats or the Republics, as the “muffage” (i.e., mishandling) has gone on while both were in power. The ones who gave them power are you and me. Look in the mirror, not to blame yourself for what has gone wrong over the past 10 years, but to realize who can change things from this point on.
Over the past 10 years we’ve been led to believe that the freedom to seek vengeance was ours alone. Tens of thousands of additional lives have been lost, and countless more maimed in the ensuing years.
The photos below of a wounded Marine, being given the hero treatment by Washington bureaucrats, is telling. He is lauded for his bravery and sacrifice. Do you think he really cares about their accolades?
Instead of reducing the military death and debt toll, the lawmakers continue the acrimonious policies and relations that feed hostilities. Is that what the Marine wants?
I imagine that he would gladly trade his “hero” status for the eye he gave up, or his arm.
Or the natural restoration of his innocent face.
Science has grown quite adept at destroying things, both in matters of war, as well as in matters of medical practice. Thousands of people are dying each day from the effect of medical treatments that decimate the human organism while the generals in white coats wage “war” against a myriad of diseases. When a life is lost, and there have been millions since 9/11, their families mourn just as deeply, and with equal sincerity, as those who were memorialized at Ground Zero.
But while we wear ribbons, and do marathons and walk-a-thons, medical practices haven’t changed and the death toll rises.
What about the foreign casualties of war? The civilians of Iraq and Afghanistan, two nations that we have occupied, not with a peace-abiding coalition, but with a military one? One could argue that “they” are intent on killing us on our soil. However, we have armed forces in their midst that are killing them, or are an immediate threat to do so, far in excess of guidelines that might be suggested by the “Eye for an Eye” School of Revenge Management.
Yet we keep giving ourselves congratulatory pats on the back for how we’re handling things. Documentaries on how we killed bin Laden run on the Discovery Channel, as history is “spinned” in one direction and away from another, such as how the towers came down with such precision, or what accounted for Building 7’s fall.
War is not the answer to conflict. Neither are lies to the public. It just adds to enmity and heartache, depression and misery.
Peace isn’t an option that you “try to find a way to.” It’s one that is chosen because it is the solution itself. Just as war can be engaged unilaterally, so can peace. We can commit to being peaceful, not harm causing, as we redress our differences, and no longer be a military threat to another country.
I know that the old “enemy” paradigm dies hard, but we are bankrupting ourselves by trying to become the police force of the world. We’re not that, nor can we ever hope to be. If 9/11 has shown us anything, it’s that we’ve not gone in the positive direction. We’ve continued on a slippery slope into fear.
Instead of trying to be the baddest dudes on the planet, able to force our will and ways on others, we might consider taking the lead in solving our problems, doing what we say we want to accomplish:
- lessen our dependence on oil
- lessen our carbon and “greenhouse” emissions
- restore the balance of our ecosystems
- restore the nutritional quality of our foods
- respect the life-giving bounty that Mother Nature provides naturally
- protect ourselves through peaceful balance and coherence
- heal ourselves from chronic and degenerative diseases
All of these and more are achievable now, and have been for decades, but no one is mourning the American mavericks and inventors that have lost their lives, or came close to losing them, because their product would correct a known problem. Stanley Meyers lost his life promoting a way to dramatically extend the fuel economy of an internal combustion engine.
Paul Pantone (www.geetinternational.com), who likewise has developed such technology, was committed to a hospital in Utah, ostensibly because he was declared “incompetent.” However, the patents that he held on fuel saving technologies were considered competent; competent enough that authorities attempted to have him sign over his rights.
Where would we be if we gave into fear?
We’ve be with a fearful government, abusing the power we’ve given it because its truth is suspect.
It’s time for a change; a change within each of us. It’s not enough to want to be different. We’ve got to be different starting on the inside, in our heart.
Let me end this by suggesting a scenario.
Imagine that forces from a foreign country came into the United States and openly threatened the lives of our citizens. There would be a call to arms and every effort would be taken to resist and repel the threat.
If such a response by Americans is easy to understand, why is it that we don’t seem to understand the umbrage that people in other nations have against our doing such things — destroying property and killing innocent people — on their soil?
The bureaucrats are supposed to be wise. They are supposed to protect the safety of all Americans. They are supposed to demonstrate to the world what America truly stands for. Well in the last 10 years, “America” has stood for vengeance, intimidation, and forceful acquisition, including on American citizens. Truth has been on a “need to know” basis.
We can do better than we have, but it begins by knowing that we do not and cannot honor life by killing.
Lost amid a myriad dialogues about the trying, even apocalyptic times we are in, is an appreciation of just how beautiful and powerful we, this entire collective of Souls on Earth, are.
I write these words knowing that “beautiful and powerful” might be among the last words that some readers would choose for a self-description, much less for humanity. Or perhaps, given the opinion that it is okay to kill and even celebrate the elimination of certain factions, they can see where the terms may apply to some, but certainly not to all. The concepts of population control, capital punishment, “ethnic cleansing,” and eugenics are all products and permutations of such thinking, where “authorities”—believed to have something that we do not, e.g., power, money, credentials—decide who, for the sake of the “greater good,” should exist (i.e., to live) and who should not (i.e., to die.)
Yet, they shun responsibility for the policies that they enact on our behalf, claiming powerlessness to follow anything but the self-serving, arcane “rules” (laws) that control them.
This is all part of a grand fairytale that we’ve been unwitting witnesses to, and actors within. Our health care mess, War on Terror, Federal Reserve system and the National Debt, are all examples of how we’ve allowed our lust for money supersede policies that reflect and embody a love and respect for each other. It’s more of a “grim” fairytale because many people are suffering the ill-effects of the adoption of long-standing “self-evident” truths that appear to benefit a small few.
But I assert that humanity is beautiful and powerful. We are compelling evidence that anything we can think, is being done; is being experienced by someone, somewhere.
And if an idea isn’t being experienced presently, it can be eventually, at some future time. If an idea serves a purpose, a human, or group of humans, will imagine it into being. The purpose that the idea serves doesn’t have to make sense to you or me, but it is a perfect expression of gross effect that is spawned from subtle cause, the immeasurable nothingness and emptiness of a thought or idea.
The Power to Imagine Like da Vinci
While he is heralded as one of the greatest artists in all of history, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) imagined the advent of flying machines 400 years before the Wright Brothers took their historic flight at Kitty Hawk. In a scant 100 years since then, we are now imagining manned journeys to distant planets of the solar system and beyond. Clearly, there is power in imagining. It is also clear that a large portion of the human population uses its imagination unconsciously, with little awareness of its—or their—true power.
Leonardo had no more power to imagine, or to create than any other human being living on the planet today, any that has ever lived, or ever will. The question is, how do we use this power called imagination?
What do we imagine? Not only about ourselves, but about our world? And how does what we imagine about ourselves affect the world around us? There are some who think that individually, we are of little to no consequence in the larger scheme of things. I tend to differ.
The idea that our imagination is of little consequence provides no incentive to take greater notice. When persistent fears become recurring experiences, we don’t see the connection. When authorities take steps to limit our freedoms on the logic that they are “protecting” our safety, we blindly imagine the worse outcomes that they conjure up, supported by media coverage in newspaper and magazine articles, broadcast news, motion pictures, fictionalized dramatizations and video games. We allow them to send our children into zones of war, where hostilities and enmity is escalated and death tolls mount, instead of diffusing contentious ideas that have persisted for centuries.
Young soldiers are taught to “follow orders” and “shoot to kill” to protect life, liberty, and property. They will kill, confine, imprison, and destroy in order to do so.
So “the game” has gone.
I believe that if we master ourselves, we can transform the world. This is why the Powers That Be have attempted, best they could, to keep you in question and doubt as to whether you can trust, and therefore be responsible for, your own judgment, unafraid of any other.
This is why we’re encouraged to be fearful, an oxymoron if I ever heard one. If keeping people in the dark about who they are is the goal, fear is the only way to go.
Fearing Love and the Source
We are encouraged to fear loving and God (an omnipotent Supreme Creator that is separate from, and judgmental of us). We’re advised to worry about what He’ll do to us if we don’t satisfy the conditions and stipulations, and jump through the hoops that His intercessors have put before us to appease Him.
This God, mind you, is the Essence of Love, which has no reason to withhold Itself from anyone, any more than the sun would choose to shine on some while refusing its light to others, or gravity would selectively apply, or limit, its force.
Some ideas, in their purest, highest expression, are unconditional. They are also eternal. Love is one such idea. The intent of love, irrespective of the language spoken, is universally beneficial, harmless, courageous, nurturing, health-enhancing, and life-affirming.
When we practice love in anything other than its full intention, we open ourselves to the vacuum that forms by its withholding, expressed variously as sorrow, loneliness, and despair, or aggression, anger, shame, reprisal and revenge.
If we are willing to be blatantly honest, chronic illness and disease can all be traced to a time or place where love was, or is still being withheld, which reduces one’s joie de vivre, progressively and cumulatively, and hence, one’s reasons to live.
Love is a reason to live, because love is life. To take away love, or to refuse to give it, is to suffer a little death within.
We do this not knowing that the solution to our perceived problems in life (and love) is to give to others what we feel we want to add to our lives. If we seek love, joy, or peace in our lives, we should give it unconditionally, as the option is always present.
It’s hard—I’d even say impossible—to hold on to “hard feelings” when you’re giving love. When we’re withholding love, compassion, or genuine care for another, we don’t realize that we’re also withholding these energies and feelings from ourselves. When we feel vulnerable and victimized, we take our own immune system down, because we’re less enlivened in ways that only being in love can do.
This doesn’t mean being in love with another, but simply within the coherent, harmonic energy field that is the sphere of love.
Loving another does not mean condoning, or agreeing with all that another does. It means remaining balanced and coherent within one’s self, true to who and what we are.
Being unconditionally loving is to instigate, in other words, to intend no new harm. We cannot walk into a situation bearing a weapon of mass or self-destruction, and say that we didn’t intend any harm. Only by being harmless and fearless under all circumstances would such truth be confirmed.
This does not mean cowering passivity in the face of the threat of death. However, a courageous commitment to balanced, harmonious life can do wonders. Any love withdrawal that may have resulted in acrimony or harm can be healed through love’s restoration. We have tried sending money in the place of love, and all the practice has done is escalate the perceived danger index.
Far more that is joyful can be accomplished between friends, than can ever be imagined as enemies.
These are easy concepts to dismiss, as one could cite the escalating dangers in the world, but doing so wouldn’t diminish their truth. The Powers That Be want you to celebrate the elimination of an “enemy” while enmity between groups is increased; “Ask your doctor,” your pastor or priest, peer review committee, or anyone else to whom you can hand your imaginative power over to, and not KNOW that you are beautiful and powerful beings, and said power to imagine is yours to give, and that it is YOU who are giving it. If you love how you imagine your life unfolding, and live said life each day in that spirit, your life will unfold accordingly.
This is how the game continues, and how it can change as you change.
For these reasons, you won’t read much in the way of dire future predictions coming from me. This is not because I have mastered the art of love (although it is certainly my desire and intention), but I do appreciate its power, especially when it comes to the conscious use of our imagination.
Being fearful represents the unconscious use of imagination. Being loving is the conscious use. Choosing to love, in spite of the “logical” reasons to be fearful, opens the heart, expands the consciousness, and evolves the being to a new level of possibility. It brings the imagined world into being in ways that fear can and will never do.
IF we want to see a different outcome to the dire apocalyptic scenarios that some people are suggesting, we have to imagine differently, and exercise all the qualities that go with the new intention—e.g., patience, tolerance, forgiveness, compassion, courage, and gratitude.
If we realize that energy follows and forms itself around attention, which follows and forms itself around intention, then it makes no sense to give energy, thought, and imagination to outcomes that we don’t feel joyful about. (Jim Humble’s recent “Kill Order” newsletter to his readers—where he reported that he had reliable information that an FBI “hit” had been issued on him—was a big example of what I feel is unconscious, because it is unloving, imagining.)
This doesn’t mean that dire events will not occur, but it is unwise to allow the fear of them to give them energy, and override one’s sense of what is best, and loving.
It appears to be a truism that if you can conceive or imagine an idea—good, bad, or indifferent—it is. When much of the information sent across public airwaves is either mindless or laced with fear, it’s easy to see how our evolution as a species might appear to be in question. But I believe the true jeopardy is in appearance only, because each Soul is both beautiful and powerful, and an expression of, and from the same Source.
In Duality We have Trusted
There does not appear to be a power problem, where one “force” is stronger than the other. There simply appears to be a persistent predominant belief in duality, which I believe we’re in the process of learning doesn’t really exist.
Duality, the idea of separateness and contrast, can express as what we might term, oppositionism, or the proclivity to seek to “win” or prevail (not “lose”) over our “opposition,” via eradication, after convincing ourselves that our imagined “good” is more worthy to exist than their imagined “evil,” even if we must do inhumane, “evil” acts in order to eradicate the inhumane evil force.
Because we see duality as real, we become “dividable,” and therefore, “conquerable.” Thinking that cancer tumors are evil, malignant forces that invade our bodies, we remain oblivious to the unbalanced environment and imaginings that we mindlessly maintain. We agree to treatment methods that make the environment even more toxic, as well as maintain our fearful, oppositional thinking. When these methods kill us, or those we unloved (or unloved us), we mourn. But what if it was all unnecessary? What if we can change this pattern through a simply shift to more loving consciousness?
Seeing beauty and power in everyone, meaning in all of humanity, tends to throw a damper on the idea that anyone, or anything is only a force for evil (and we’re only forces of good), even if we don’t find a resonance with their position or actions. Their existence means that a purpose is being served, which will be perpetuated by fear, or transmuted by love.
But then, that is the appearance. Anyone who is motivated to take the loving road less traveled, to seek, find, and know truth that emanates from their own heart, will find the way… their way. The Path to freedom, health, abundance, and vitality, is the path of Love, and is always available when one is ready.
CHICAGO, IL – Shifting paradigms and disappearing paradoxes dominate these times, as the world turns while hurtling its way through the galaxy on a much speculated upon path, its present in upheaval, its future, uncertain.
Is it the beginning of The End, or of The Beginning? is the question.
My vote is for the latter. The beginning of The Beginning. The birth of a new reality that emerges from the tumult of the Here and Now, of which we are witnesses, writers (by the choices we make), and experiencers.
I am in my hometown of Chicago, taking some time to be with mom, enjoying the golden apple pie that, like a great alchemist, she conjures up from humble ingredients. Her pies (sweet potato too) have served as the benchmark for every pie I have ever tasted. She’s still got it; apples neither too tart nor too sweet. Maybe it’s the love she puts into each ingredient that transcends its potential ill-effects, and reminds me of home.
Over the past weekend I spoke at the South Eastern Iowa Longevity Conference, in Fairfield, itself an oasis of transcendental thinking among the expanses of pasteurized dairies and genetically engineered farmlands.
The New Beginning (i.e., natural, unpasteurized dairy, GMO-FREE growing practices), will evolve as we move away from many practices that have become familiar. Dependence on “the miracle of chemistry” being one. We use chemicals in so many ways, without question, that the detrimental cumulative effects on our physiological and mental health, has not even been noticed by the powers that be, much less acknowledged to be culpable.
So we must take notice ourselves, as well as embrace new methods.
The New Beginning won’t necessarily look drastically different from the familiar. But our experience will be very different.
The talk that I gave was titled, “PHOTONIC WATER: For Better Energy, Health, and Life.” This too represents an old concept looked at from a new perspective. The view itself isn’t new. Energy has always been with us, because we have always been Energy. What’s new is that we’re acknowledging its primacy. We’re seeing the energetic perspective as a viable, valuable, and indeed, the FIRST FACTOR that should be considered, in determining what’s beneficial or not with regard to water treatment.
“Purity” is no longer measured in terms of nothingness. Water with no minerals is electrically inert, the intent behind which would act as a slow poison. Optimal water is balanced, not only in terms of pH, but energetically, in terms of negative entropy.
In the new energy conscious world, positive entropy is known to be disruptive and destructive on subtle systems, whereas negative entropy, as are negative ions, have harmonizing and cohering properties. Harmony and coherence are present when we are healthy. If they introduced when we are sick, heal begins to return.
Our observations about entropy apply to water, but also, to every product, every thought, idea, or concept, and every emotion. When we “tune-in” to energy (and everyone can do it), we gain insights that don’t reveal themselves if we’re limiting ourselves to information confirmable only by our five senses.
Over the past two years my attention has turned to the subject of water, its nature, and role in the unfolding story of human life and health on earth. The fact that we have been “fighting” what has become a losing battle with health, can be tied very closely with our relationship to, and thoughts about water, and related topics.
Needless to say, if we’re losing a battle to maintain health, the more looming specter is that we’re also on the deficit side of the quest to sustain life.
Life WILL be sustained, but not by continuing to do things that way we’ve been doing them. Therefore, the beginning of The Beginning is upon us, as The End of the Familiar is at hand.
I had a wonderful time in Fairfield and absolutely enjoyed getting to know Steve Bhaerman, both the co-author of Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and How to Get there From Here, and the alter-ego of the comedic stage personality known as Swami Beyondananda (www.wakeuplaughing.com).
Having heard of, but never having seen a Swami performance myself, I could not have imagined enjoying comedy that much. He speaks with comedic brilliance from a familiar, but rarely broadcast perspective. There was no obligatory laughter to be found masking over uncomfortable, or downright dangerous ideas.
Not only did I have the pleasure of watching the Swami’s performance at Fairfield’s Morning Star Studios, I captured it on video. I will give Steve an opportunity to view it as a process of gaining permission to share it as a video or CD title, but in my opinion, he’s that good.
A Visit to the Gulf Coast
My original plans were to travel to New Orleans from here to co-present, along with Wil Spencer, a series of workshops, titled, The Power to Heal is Within – in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LA, and in Biloxi, MS. You may recall that Wil was the object of some controversy and scorn when he had the audacity to try to help residents of the Gulf Coast states who are experiencing the ill-effects of the highly chemicalized environment, using a number of products, including one he called, “Advanced Oxygen Therapy,” which was a relabeled MMS/chorine dioxide product.
Instead of avoiding controversy, he incited it when someone recognized the ingredients of his AOT and, putting two and two together, deciding that a fraud was being perpetrated. Fortunately, several people who have in fact been helped by Wil’s protocols – of which MMS/AOT was only a portion – have mobilized to organize the workshops so that more people who were interested could hear and learn.
For my part, I will talk about water and energy, and electricity, bringing with me some new technologies that I’ve been introduced to recently that can help restore cellular, energetic, electrical, and lymphatic system circulation, all of which are natural byproducts when energetic coherence is increased with a concomitant decrease in entropy.
The developments that are unfolding at this moment on the Mississippi River, which will impact the Gulf Coast region over the next several weeks to some presently unknowable extent, made it prudent to postpone the gatherings until things settle down.
This is all part of The New Beginning.
You can watch my presentation here.
So much has already happened to start 2011; so many opportunities and reasons, so many catalysts to encourage us to take a fresh look at life with both un-jaundiced eyes and mind. We’re receiving wake-up calls that prompt us to ask the long stifled question, “where do we go from here? Can we do better? Can we live better? Can we heal and be well?”
The word “shocking” has become the unexpected intruder in the unfolding history of this young year. Unexpected perhaps, but the events are all catalysts for each of us to ask probing questions.
With birds falling from the sky and fish die offs in the U.S. and around the world…
We search for causes, offering everything from fireworks and cold weather to HAARP emissions and the loop current as the answer…
But the mystery lingers…
Mystery, i.e., our inability to make sense out of a phenomenon, experience, or concept with understandings presently thought to be true, serves as reminders that we don’t know everything yet, and catalysts to stay open and keep asking questions.
We must ask questions if we are to change our attitudes, to change our behavior, and hence, our experience.
We don’t question human behavior nearly enough. In fact, we oftentimes tell ourselves that we (or they) can’t change. However, there’s a big difference between “can’t” and won’t. The only way to know the difference, is accepting that positive change is possible. The alternative, is to go dumb, or numb.
Then, just when we become comfortable in our numbness to bad news, another event happens close to home that we just can’t ignore, making us ask questions again.
My heart goes out to those who were involved in, and affected by the shooting of U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson (1/8/2011), which is just down the road from me.
As much as we wish her a speedy and full recovery, who among us is ready to send healing wishes to the man who pulled the trigger? Is he not, and was he not already in dis-ease?
Is he not “one of our own” too?
Are we ready to celebrate the heroes and disown the villains, locking them up and throwing away the key, or putting them to death?
How’s that working for us?
Would it be better to punish him? Or would it be better to help him heal his heart so that we know that the “red zone enmity” that he sunk to won’t happen again from him?
If we can help him heal, then can we help other “red zone cases” that currently fill our prisons?
If we heal just one such man or woman, then a blessing can emerge from this chaotic mess.
(Hint, it won’t happen via prescription medication or surgery.)
If we seek to punish alone, we’ll get more of the same.
Every moment, every event, and every experience that is not to our liking is a catalyst to ask the question; “is there another way of seeing and responding, that I might realize a new quality of change? Can healing come from this?” These are personal questions that can affect humanity as a whole.
Even the most tragic moments have within them the seeds of the greatest blessings and beginnings. They will grow based on the environment that we create around them. If we create an environment that nurtures greatness and actually heals dis-ease of all involved, then the fruits of our choices will eventually nourish us.
Asking the right questions and making inspired choices are the first steps that each of us can take.
I reach out to the people of Australia’s heartlands, who are experiencing Mother Nature’s power first hand. This is not vengeance, but her need to “adjust” her settings. Brace yourselves for something wonderful; the new lives that you can create in your new world.
I reach out to the people of Haiti. You were suffering from life before the events of January 12, 2010, only to see a bad situation turn worse in the ensuing year. My heart goes out to you.
Will you search within your own heart and allow heaven to emerge from your hell?
Money only brings palliative relief, and even that will be for a few. Only love can cure what ails you.
To my fellow U.S. citizens on the Gulf Coast who still endure the effects of the chemical desecration that was the Gulf Oil Spill treatment chosen by BP and the U.S. Government. A corporate decision made a bad situation worse, and efforts are still being made to cover it up.
Even as you cope with the tell-tale and obvious signs of disease, please know that you can heal yourselves, your children, and communities. If you do, you can show others the way.
To those around the world whose countries are torn asunder by war, whether cultural, civil and political, please know that peace is at hand; and that it begins with and through you. Will you make your desire to break the cycle of tragedy your reason to treat others the way you want to be treated, instead of reason to prey on innocents?
To those who are in poverty. If you don’t see a wonderful bounty that is available just for you at the expense of no one else, then imagine it into being. Imagine yourself joyfully being part of its growth.
To those who populate our jails, please forgive us for shunning and fearing you. We have made you our problem. Let those who are ready to treat others as human, even in an inhumane place, raise their thoughts and set a new course of intention. You are where you are for a reason. Only by owning the choices that you made to get there, will you gain the power to liberate yourself, even while behind bars. What is the true warden, but fear?
We complain about the darnedest things. We see our troubles as the worst there could ever be. Yet, we don’t know jack about troubles. Someone, somewhere always is experiencing something that would immediately make us feel grateful for the troubles that we have, and maybe even consider that we can fix them.
The world that we live in is one of our creation. Limited resources and availability, haves and have-nots, poor and rich, heroic and villainous, healthy and diseased, are all states of one humanity, and we are all capable of experiencing any or all of these expressions. We are also able to change any, if we ask heart-felt questions, and are willing to see new ways.
Take a look at the image… how do you see it? Is the sun rising? or is it setting?
The answer depends on your point of view, which only you can change.
