Reconnecting to Nature

Tides of Impermanence

There are many currents in the tides of impermanace

A seed grows into a tree
A tree is cut into wood
The wood is burned in a fire
The ash is used in art
The art is sold at an auction,
And seeds are bought again.

A seed grows into a tree
A tree is cut into wood
Shavings are turned to pulp
Pulp is turned into paper
On paper is written a letter
Asking for more seeds.

A seed grows into a tree…

I believe it is important to keep an ever evolving world-view, an expanding awareness. It seems our lives have become increasingly boxed in, where our awareness is limited to a smaller perspective. There are walls and screens everywhere, and people have lost their connection to nature. For most, something has to happen in order for them to become aware of an issue. We have lost our connection to the planet, and nature itself, the very thing that sustains us. You don’t have to be a “nature-freak” to realize the importance of taking care of our planet and each other. Look at how scientists look for planets similar to Earth, it does seem to be pretty rare to find a planet of such beauty and resource. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, it could be something as simple as taking a walk, in the open air and stop and think for a second about your connection to the planet, your Macro-Mother. There’s nothing wrong with material things but they are destroyed with time, and what remains is what was there before: nature.

I think it’s especially important to for children to recognize their connection to nature and life itself so that they have that to draw on when they are older.

Hidden Power and Potential

It is time to evolve not revolve or regress. One of the key factors in evolution is recognizing your own potential. The human mind and body in conjunction with the creative spirit, are very powerful instruments more so than some would like to believe.  If you have seen a some of the previous posts, I have mentioned that energy follows thought, energy follows symbols, energy is behind everything in existence. I have one question for you, have you ever considered why the placebo effect works in the first place? It is not the medicine that is powerful, it is the energy behind it. The thoughts and things you choose to believe affect your very reality. This is why many love to keep you in fear, it initiates a low state-of-mind, fight-or-flight, which is a survival instinct and little else, often leading to not well thought-out-decisions.

It has been said that the subconscious does not distinguish between fiction and reality. So what you hold true at a subconscious level greatly affects you. It operates at a higher level, and is able to perceive things the conscious mind cannot, this is why subliminal messages are accepted by the subconscious despite being very short.

This is why it is important to be your own advocate. When you hold a doctors opinion or diagnosis in higher esteem than what you wish to be the outcome, what do you think is the result? What happens when a doctor tells you “there is nothing we can do” and because you hold the doctors diagnosis in higher esteem than your own conviction, a recovery that could have happened is prevented.

Know the power of you own intention, thought, and love.

(note: all the people who talked about love seemed to be taken out pretty quickly)

The Human Organism

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin

A nation or world of people who will not use their intelligence are no better than mere beasts of burden who do not have intelligence and are steaks on the table by choice and consent. – Mayer Amschel Rothschild of the Rothschild Banking family (harsh but it strikes a point)

Wherein men and women allow themselves to be coerced by means of fear into giving up liberty, no matter how justified they may believe it to be, they will never find freedom. Laws, and restrictions have yet to prove themselves be an effective counter-measure to unsatisfying conditions, as illustrated by the numerous laws passed and the persisting conditions and seemingly worsening conditions of today. Legislature only serves those with agendas written in the fine print and makes it harder for those who abide by it to keep lawful, for those who don’t it remains much the same: they never intended to nor do they care how many laws are passed. There is no need to go creating enemies, It is the underlying problems that need addressing and no amount of paperwork will ever solve that.

Humanity needs to start thinking of itself as an organism, and to address the various cancers and illnesses within that organism, and not by means of stigmatization, ostracizing, or dissecting but by healing those areas that need healing. Wherein they allow themselves to be silenced on any grounds (especially under the false taboo premise of respect) the voice of freedom does not ring. As cells of the human body, people have become disconnected, isolated, no longer in communication with other cells. The sharing of ideas, working together, and cooperative practices are the only thing that will solve these problems. Not one big-brained guy who will sit down and hash everything out for you nor will any elected official. People blame names and faces, look beyond names and faces for the meaning. It is not the players but the game itself that is fundamentally flawed. Names change, players change, but the game remains much the same. Revolution is to revolve in a circle, it is time to evolve, to expand outwards.

Try not to create enemies as many do, all you need do is co-operate with each other find what you have in common instead of differences, and figure out what world in which you wish to live. This can be done in scales, start with what you can change in your life, then work your way up from there, community, country, world. Simultaneously if your officials truly cared about you they would realize that power needs to be decentralized back to the people. Emanate some love into the world by embodying it, and that does not mean being happy all the time, a little compassion will make the world a better place.

If you have a party of 5 working independently that work will take much longer than if the five were to give about 20% of their effort to each other. On extreme home makeover they raise house in 7 days, that shows you the power of teamwork and communication.

The solution to any problem is not to be anti-anything that is to create resistance, label one hand good the other evil and try to force them through each other. The path of least resistance is the greatest, that means starving what you don’t like (starve the beast) and supporting that which you do. Non-violence, would be to slide your hands alongside each arm. No need to fight a bully for the sandbox, just play somewhere else, and when enough do this, the bully will have to either join you or play alone.

Now liberate, liberate, liberate…

The Truth will set you free

Be your own leaders

There are many lies today, lies wrapped in lies, covered in lies, coated with more lies, beneath media fed, publicly swallowed lies. All too often people find some glimmer of truth spouted from the mouth of some other and take that person to be a beacon of truth. The problem lies in where they make a mistake you are misled. Be your own leader and find your own truth, see what makes sense to you and what doesn’t add up. There are as many truths and lies as there are words to make them.

The organizations, technologies, and authorities that were once meant to serve the people are now are served by the people. The truth lies in the shadow of a lie, everywhere that lie goes the truth follows. The question is the tool that unveils the lie. The discrepancy or contradictions soon reveal what did and did not happen  The truth needs no defending, it is like a lion, and can fend for itself. It only needs be freed and in turn it will set you free.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men and women do nothing.

I would also like to take the time to point out that I am not Jesus, or a messiah or prophet or anything of the like, in case anyone believed that.

Look beyond people and faces, and idols for the words, look behind the words for the meaning….and the sincerity.

Food For Thought – NonViolence

In light of some recent events,

Battles of the body beget more bodies, battle of the mind beget division which leads to battles of the body, battles of the body….

—————————————————————————————————————

Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
Hate multiplies hate,
violence multiplies violence,
and toughness multiplies toughness
in a descending spiral of destruction….
The chain reaction of evil —
hate begetting hate,
wars producing more wars —
must be broken,
or we shall be plunged
into the dark abyss of annihilation.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Strength To Love, 1963

Nonviolence is the answer
to the crucial political and moral questions of our time:
the need for man to overcome oppression and violence
without resorting to oppression and violence.
Man must evolve for all human conflict
a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation.
The foundation of such a method is love.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech,
Stockholm, Sweden, December 11, 1964
