An article crossed by my nose during a recent morning coffee frenzy suggesting it was Vendetta time or else. Maybe it was the coffee but I was sweating. Ok, it was the coffee. One of my last vices. That, and the sweet addictive heroine that is known as Coca Cola. Cake in a bottle and more addictive than smack.
The premise was, a.) ascend b.) resist the Draconian oppressor or c.) ?.
Holy shit, right!? 3 options?! How unimaginative. And Shit, I don’t even remember the other option(s) after ascension and revolution. Basically, it was the boring or else option, New World Order.
Is this to suggest that the sloth of government and control paradigm hasn’t been running amok upon the Mother for as long as our current propaganda history has been in existence?
Language is extremely limiting, but ascension used oppositionally in this type of polarity tug of war just makes it more this or that. More Hierarchy. More of the, pick this edge or that edge spectruming. More of the judging mind, choosing between the edges of potentiality.
I’m personally too imaginative or possibly too stubborn to boil it down like that just yet. Besides, If one of the options is more of the same tyrannical beast bulldozing unapologetcally over the despondent masses of the World, then I reckon any other possible step in any other possible direction is the right one.
We do have to start somewhere with it as well, and choice paralysis is a choice as well. And No, I’m not suggesting any violence on the base levels. Enough of that already. Enough war, enough death, enough struggle. Enough!
I believe forgiveness and love are potential choices, and the revolution I speak of isn’t against any “They”. Some discernment and imagining of new models and modes of experience and leadership would certainly benefit us all. But, the battle we are fighting isn’t against the outside illusions, nor is having apathy for there being a demon to slay of much use.
The battle of SELF is upon us all.
If you haven’t had a personal revolution against the commentator possessing your mind, then your turn is coming. You will be coming for yourself.
A Cherokee Legend
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
We live in a society that rewards those who follow the flock and then ridicules those who dare think outside the box.
If you haven’t noticed though, the paradigm is changing. More and more people are awakening to seek the real truth behind who they are and who they represent.
If you are one of these people, I commend you. If you are still asleep, then perhaps it’s time that you begin searching for some answers. If you would like answers that is.
The bottom line is to question everything. Most of what we have been taught is not the complete truth.
There is an infinite number of magical and equally interesting possibilities, very few of which have even been conceived of within our society up to this point.
When contemplating Self, remember:
“I am not my possessions, my job, my money, my house or my car. I am not my relationships. I am not my thoughts, beliefs or feelings. I am not even my body. All of these things come and go, they are constantly changing, temporary.”
You came before these things, and you will remain after they are gone. So, who are you?
In my experience the most simple, most truthful response we can make to that question is simply I AM or I exist. This has to be a felt experience so we can simply sit and feel presence in the body and ask ourselves the question: who am I?
Rather than respond, sit quietly and simply observe as a witness to all that occurs. When you are able to easily feel raw presence, you can step back in any situation and be the witness.
This creates a great deal of space in life and helps us not to take things so personally or seriously by simply observing that there is something beyond what is happening to us, and that something is always absolutely stable.
A step to strive for is the return to I AM Presence or at least an understanding of it. When you take on emotional embodiments like ‘I am angry’ it is different. THIS MEANS you are identifying with anger as being what you are. Anger of course isn’t what you are because it’s temporary, and even while it is present, there is something witnessing it that was present before the anger came and will be present after it goes.
So, instead of saying ‘I am angry’, we can strive to be present with understanding, ‘anger is arising within me’, or ‘I notice anger’.
By seeing anger as a temporary state of being, that is noticed, remains for a time and then is gone, we release the need to make such a big deal out of it. If there is no story about it or identification with it, then we can release the energy rather than embody.
The very freedom we seek is the basis of what we are. There is no need to search for it anywhere, not even inside because the irony or cosmic joke is that you are the Divine searching for itself. You are seeking to know God through his eyes.
Gravity has a hold of us all. The tug of war between this or that, good or bad or whatever duality embodies in manifest can not conceal the ultimate truth of the grand connectivity that is WE. So, NWO or Ascension? Boring. You are and We are, All That Is, Was and Ever will Be.
