Saw a man on the side of the road as I was traveling from a speaking engagement. He had a sign, “Homeless…Want to work”. Been noticing many who have signs, who do not have homes. What is wrong with us, are we becoming so numb, so incensed to our spiritual selves we no longer care. What is wrong with leadership, with “We the People” that we seem able to trade our humanities for in-humanities?
It has been said, and I do believe that the universe and all that is a part of it is permeated by an energy. This energy emanates from a single source; what many would call “The great mystery”, while others would call “God. This energy, or power, although singular in its essence seems to manifest itself in three ways; as static inertia, dynamic inertia, or mental energy such as thought. It is the harmonious union of these three reacting opposites that would be the cause of the universe, or the macrocosm from which the human life form seems to be the duplicate in the form of the microcosm. I say this as we humans seem to be the only form of life on this planet that is conscious and aware, through “creative thought”, of these thoughts, theories, or realities.
The concept of God, Spirit, or the Great mystery has been brought to an expression by we “human animals”. Our history and evolution has conjoined us with a concept of a “Universal Architect” which we through our unique gift of “creative thought” have bonded with as our concept of a spiritual being. I, for one, feel that I am a spiritual being living in an animal’s body by a divine reasoning to experience life as a human being. It is from this personal awareness of who I am that I greet each day with an optimism of profound spiritual truth. It should also be said that my spiritual truth is of a personal way of accepting a universal creator which takes from many religious paths to form my truth. I should also say that my spiritual understanding also accepts “Nature” as an ultimate understanding of God. As we find so many religious paths, all leading to a spiritual awareness; it can also be said that an exclusivity to defining God, or spirit is not exclusive. To box the infinite simply creates a finite creator; the universal creator is multi dimensional in multiple ways. Again, an opinion from me to you.
It seems today that there are those who do not believe in the rationality of the universe, or the simple understanding of what we refer to as God. Religion itself must shoulder some of the blame for this. It often is the boxing of that which is un box-able that causes this. Our relationship to a higher power, or awareness has since our beginning of awareness through human consciousness been based on a higher way of being. Our gift of “creative thought” allows for reason through logic and rational to find purpose and growth as more than simply a human animal. This is how we have progressed as what we refer to as the highest form of life on the planet.
We human animals have created many system for living on “Spaceship Earth”. Our economic, educational, governmental, social, and religious systems seem to be the only way most of us can live here on our “Mother Earth. We have so regarded and so misused them, it is the potent cup that drinks us downward into spiritual poverty and eventual ruin. I question if we are amputating our spiritual self from our selves either by the manipulation of a few who have lost their ways through Greed and control, or if we are simply doing the madness to our selves frustrated at the world we all have created to live in together. It is quite possible, and very probable, that the great transformation proclaimed today is going to be one that is more of attitude, and action, more than anything else. It will be for us to wake our selves up and change the systems; I do feel if we don’t there will be no one else to do it for us.
Systems is the key word as I see it. One of the systems created in the 20th century was the machine system. The industrial age of manufacturing, (often more than could be consumed), created a machine age system. That system was based on simply making money while manufacturing a better society. I would suggest first that we all are responsible for the system and its destructive consequences as seen today. I would also say that most of “We the People” did not realize the future we were creating for us all within it. There were those who would sell their souls for the money and wealth the system would generate for them. Most simply wanted a better life.
Our emerging modern machine system; one that is simply a repeat of the old system, but more technology oriented, has not changed and does create a model of a human machine, the spirit of that model does not resonate with the human spirit much. We seem to be in a school that is destroying our human spirit for one that is machine oriented. Could this be why we now are “Human Resources”, divided into two groups, the haves and the have-nots? Still, the system is based on the same principles, the most important being accumulating money. It has not changed; rather we are, as we become more and more detached from the humanities we cherished so much in the past.
Our world today would seem to be disoriented and dependent on systems that have not and will not create change. If they do create change it will not truly be change, it will be more of the same disguised as change. I question whether we are ready to become just a cog in some one else s machine. We will not be what we want to be, Anyone watch “Star Treks Borg” series, such pitiful lives to not be while being. They were resources to be abused and used no humanity what so ever. We can be that also if we do not wake up.
We, in our present machine system have already destroyed 25% of the species on “Planet earth”, while also destroying the worlds cultural diversity. 2,000 language systems have disappeared from our world since the beginning of our machine age. That also can represent the destruction of our diversity of human creativity and thought. This is accelerating today at ever more frenzy while we truly have no expectation of truly knowing where we are going. There may be those who think they do, we will not know until we get there. A life as a machine just doesn’t sound good right now, I like being me.
Doom and gloom is the fatalism we face when we ignore immutable laws of nature for a system that is out of touch with nature and humanity. Our machine age thinking has created a world of corporate capitalism that is destroying everything for no more than an illusion of security. This seems to be the reason for all the frenzy, confusion, and need for control today. Our spirituality is being cut away in the frenzy also. We feel powerless when our system creates a state of co-dependency rather than inter-dependency. Powerlessness and prowess are simply opposite ends of the plan of action. There truly is a better system that can be created. A question today is can we wake ourselves up and move from a system that will not provide a future of prosperity and abundance for all?
Doom and gloom is a reality that should be faced; that might inspire change even more than allowing the present systems to simply go on. It will take people shouting, standing up and becoming active, facing the doom and gloom with hope and faith, and more than likely aggravating those whose hearts have been hardened through their own insecurities and self-centered selfishness that supports such a system as we have today. They truly are the most horrible of all terrorists.
The awakening will not simply happen if those who are inspired do not speak up as the sleep has become disguised as the right way. A machine system is not a sustainable system for humanity unless, of course, humanity chooses to end being human. What scares me is that there are those who would embrace this as our future.
“We the People” can create a system of living, or a “living system” that embraces the magnificence of the human being. It has been done before, long before we found ourselves in system as we have today. Some would call it the “Golden age” of man. I do believe that even if that age did not exist before we can create it today. This would require us to stop supporting the present system, “civil and economic disobedience. The concept is not necessarily bad, it is waking up and changing in a non-violent form. It could be based on our higher spiritual values and truly become a “Living System”.
We have become true system thinkers, the problem is we have also been taught to not stand together, rather to do it on our own. We are divided through religion, politics, economics, race, and more. This could be an easier path to the surgical removal of our spirituality. The human race has survived for all the time we have been here not by doing it on our own; rather as a family, a community of compassionate animals we call human. Today we do stand at a cross-road, one that will define who we are for a long time. We can conceive a future based on our present system; second one that truly is independent and free from the present influences, and third, one that awakens and becomes aware that we are the system and we, not simply a divine transformation are going to be responsible for our future, we can create a “Living System”, one that would bring a Golden age to the time of man.
I have said in so many ways that we are the world and the world will be us; this will always be true if we are the stewards of this world. As stewards we should not go about destroying the only home we have for no more than the illusion greed makes of our economic system. The doom and gloom are not necessary the only results for “We the People”. We can have joy and abundance.
There is simply only one law of karma in this life, that of “cause and effect”. We are the cause, the world is the effect. Acceptance of self opens to the truth of the world, as Buddha said, “it is your mind that has created this world.”.. Like attracts and creates like, both in good and evil. How do these energies influence you? For either to connect with anyone it must find a resonance within. And we can and do resonate to both like it or not. We also have free will and choice as to which we will do. We as men and women are capable of loving and giving while at the same time of taking and killing. Accepting that we either one human animal, or a family of human animals create the world we live in, or influence the thoughts of others in our diabolical manifestations of EGO may create the world we live in is a reality we all should resonate with. We simply create our own suffering or we can change this. We have a divine spiritual awakening crying that we do. It hasn’t been cut out all together yet.
Our world today is one of fear, one of weakness in self which creates weakness in our society’s. The out of control globalists, governments, educators, and religions use our fear to control which simply creates more fear. The Bin Laden thing is a very good example of this. To face the fear is to make it harmless, to face the system that is given so much power from the fear is to speak out about it, to act in changing it. Religions themselves can and often do control human adherents. If fear has become the feature of humanity, love itself is the quality of God. Spirit as Love, or Love as spirit may become the working spiritual model for our transformation.
The cost may be enormous to those who love life and the world enough to be a voice of change. It has been said, “ BEHIND EVERY NEGATIVE THERE IS A POSITIVE WAITING TO BE KNOWN. THE PROFOUNDNESS OF NATURE OF THE DIVINE IS THAT NEGATIVE IS SUPERIMPOSED ON MAN BY SEPARATING MANS CONSCIOUSNESS FROM ITS SOURCE. From this man creates FEAR”. Are we ready to amputate our spiritual wellness and awareness from us today because of the FEAR created by incompetence, greed, hatred, and ignorance? I for one do not think so, it would be impossible to be human beings without it.
So why do we hang on to the bad things so tightly less we are fearful of what we want the most, CHANGE? Accepting we human animals as what we are opens the door to becoming the human beings we were meant to be, this is the change so many speak of. Our beliefs are the rocks that allow us to discover little nuggets. Are we ready to strip away our beliefs for a machine age ideal of BORG?
Beliefs are more valuable than gold and are the most valuable of currencies. They pay the way to either better or worse and attract what they radiate. Either wealth our poverty are bought and paid for by our beliefs. The systems today have lost touch with our beliefs, they would cut them from us for beliefs in greed, hatred, and ignorance as they have been trying to do for centuries. We truly are at a cross roads, one that will define the human animal until we commit slow suicide or change the systems. When our beliefs are supportive and appropriate for our selves, our society’s, and our world they will create inexhaustible wealth for us all. If, however, they are not they will create nothing but obstacle and suffering for us all.
This time of transition, of awakening, is a time of choices for us all. Our free will, our freedoms, our liberties, and our right to the pursuit of happiness, (as long as it does not harm others), truly is at stake. I for one will not forget my spiritual inheritance. I simply cannot stand by while it is cut away for systems that simply will end the reign of man, the stewardship given to man by our unconditionally loving creator. What about you?
As was given at a gathering some time ago, “The system you have created must crumble and do so completely before the transformation can take place. Your system would make man God over man, this will not be as God is God and creator of man. God in man is the transition you cry for, we realize this and want to give this to you. We must turn our eyes from you when you turn you sight from us. You have cried to us while denying our truth and way. The time has come for your system to end, it must be destroyed totally. This does not mean you will be destroyed completely for those who will awaken to our call shall be the future. The growth will be of our thought first as you are our thought. We gave you the gift of creative thought but will not allow for you too much longer destroy our love through your thought. The system must collapse completely.” Doggone…it’s not to late yet I guess that gives me HOPE for us all. After all “Hope is Faith in Action”.
