Oh Lordy, Let There Be No Tapes

I wake up to birds outside screaming because I’m late. Usually I’m outside on the patio by now taking in the morning-glory of life. So I move my unresponsive legs off the bed hoping to find the floor and Eberhard says, “Careful, careful”. I make my way to the bathroom to relieve myself. All goes well except for the thoughts that start running through my head as memories from last night start to float past me. I get to the sink to wash my hands and lo and behold there’s a huge zit on my upper lip between my nose and mouth. What? Who gets this at 68? Last week it was one on my nose. God hates me.

I make coffee (I only have one cup a day, but I love it in the morning) and I make my way out to the patio to take in life for the day. I’m naked. Not a pretty site, but I’m protected (and so is the world) by an 8 foot wall around me. The birds start laughing at me in great furor. I am not my usual self, ready to take a moment to meditate. Instead I have these flashbacks….”oh my God, did I do that?” Jeff (karaoke man) why didn’t you stop me?” And Bobby,  you were suppose to keep me in check….. you even said to others that “I was never the same after my mild stroke.”

The evening was enlightening. We started out by meeting friends and their family relatives visiting from Georgia. It’s our ‘solving the world’s problems’ (Trump, etc.) get together that we have occasionally on a Sunday. Of course we discuss the delicate matters over a few glasses of wine. It was a very interesting perspective, not one we were accustomed to, as we tried to figure out why people are attracted to Trump, and why they can believe his rhetoric. We surmised, part of it was education, another part was environment and what they see around them, but mostly it was what people don’t see as they view their lives from  a finite perspective. In conclusion we decided “not to worry”…..this too will pass.

Dancing in front of the karaoke singers was just part of it. There was the bus ride from our beginning location to the karaoke bar. We got the whole bus to ‘rock’. Everyone got off at our stop and the bus driver was relieved, just hoping for a few more silent moments until his shift finished. Still, I remember Jeff encouraging myself and Bobby to sing. Not a nice picture or sound for that matter. Everyone run……run for your lives.

In conclusion, at some point in time, we all need a little release on whatever level makes us comfortable.  Just look at the TV in this moment. Trump, is surrounded by his cabinet in their absorbent moment of self-aggrandizement.  This is their moment of release.

True or False?

Fear without Knowing
January 21, 2017

original

 

So, I’m coming around the corner to go to the boy’s room and there are two people waiting in line. The first person is standing  about four feet from the restroom doors. The second person is standing sixteen feet from the restroom doors. A line is forming, but neither of these two people move forward to take up the distance in the line.

What keeps them from moving forward?

Is this a sign of the times?

Is their fear of moving forward greater than their need to release?

One person comes out of the left side restroom and the first person takes his place. But, the second person in line refuses to move forward, even though the line behind him is forming quickly and reaching out the exit doors of the building. Finally, the second restroom becomes available and the person ahead of me moves to take his position inside the restroom. I immediately take up the lax in space of close to twenty feet and wait for the next restroom to become available.

If fear is this obvious in a nondescript environment, what does it say about the county under Trump?

Are we going to be governed by our small but innate fear of ‘not knowing’, or fear of ‘who we are’ as a replacement for I AM?

Move forward! Take a stand! Be who you were meant to BE!

A Rock
December 3, 2016

aaaaaaaaarock-camera-2

 

A rock is obtuse. It lacks the ability to discern insight, therefore it is solid in its makeup. It blends in with its surroundings, but in reality it is just ‘there’. It gives nothing. But, it takes something.

It takes space and the ability to absorb energy. Energy it absorbs is never given back in equal amounts of what is taken. On the contrary, it takes and takes and takes. Weather it is sunlight, air, or any energy, it sucks it from it’s source.

The purpose behind a rock is to reassure humanity that there is stability. An anchor for its inequality. A rock is a rock is a rock.

If you meditate on ‘rock’ you will find a deep, deep sense of solidness and anchoring. It will scare you with its depth.

How then does a human turn into a ‘rock’?

Probably, lack of love.

Give and take.

On both sides.

Sad.

clarity

 

Pre-election jitters induced angst and anxiety. Post election results produced anger with one half of America’s population and joy with the other half. It’s hard to reconcile all of these emotions with so many people involved.

The ones in anger feel robbed. They feel loss and they are hurt deeply. Loss is never a good feeling and feeling pain along with the loss tends to breed more anger, hate and prejudice. Possibly the three emotions they were initially trying to remove from the election rhetoric.

In moments like this, clarity is needed. And, unless you’ve experienced and felt an elevated form of clarity throughout your life it may not seem like the solution. Clarity is learned from personal experiences. It’s a feeling which lets you know: ‘you can’t be robbed’. Nothing can be taken from you that you’ve learned, that you instinctively know within or what you won’t relinquish.

The pain must be worked through with love and understanding.

Time will take care of the rest.

EVIL

(Begins a duet with AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON. Her song is called Darkness and Light)

LISTEN CLOSELY TO MY SOUND

(Heavy organ with drums, eerie sounds)

IT’S DARKNESS FROM DEEP IN THE GROUND

(Deep rumbling)

UNLIKE THOSE WHO ARE CROWNED

(Trumpets sounding)

MY POWER IS UNBOUND

(Laughing hauntingly again, raising her arms and hands in a sweeping motion, heavy thunder)

 

 

AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON

(Strong, powerful, but calm; to EVIL)

I AM THE BALANCE THAT MAKES YOU EXIST

AND YOU ARE A MIRROR OF FEAR, A TRYST

TRUE POWER IS WITHIN

YOU CANNOT WIN

YOUR POWER IS A DISGUISE

LIKE PAST AND FUTURE THAT ARE NOT WISE

THERE IS ONLY HERE AND NOW TO BEGIN

THE REMEDY WE FACE FOR ALL SIN

YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR TRUE PURPOSE

MAKING PEOPLE WEAK AND NERVOUS

HOWEVER, NOW IT’S TIME

TO TAKE AWAY YOUR HABEAS CORPUS

 

 

 

EVIL

(To AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON tauntingly)

TO DENY ME IS TO DENY GOOD

DON’T YOU WISH YOU COULD?

LACK OF LOVE IS YOUR SYMPHONY

MORE LOVE IS YOUR ONLY SYMMETRY

THIS ILLUSION I SEED

NEEDS SURRENDER DECREED

THE DIFFERENCES IN OTHERS

MUST BE LOVED

LIKE BABIES BY MOTHERS

 

 

EVIL and AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON

(Duet together)

WE’RE IN AGREEMENT THEN

(Facing each other)

WE WILL BE IN HEAVEN

WHEN WE LEARN TO LOVE HELL

WHERE MINDS OF NO RESISTANCE DWELL

WHEN WE LOVE AS MUCH AS WE CAN

FROM WHEREVER WE BEGAN

DARKNESS IS JUST A VENEER

HIDING LIGHT THAT IS CLEAR

DARKNESS IS CONTRACTION

LIGHTNESS AN EXPANSION

JUST BELIEVE THAT ON ALL LEVELS

WE’RE INTER-DEPENDENT VESSELS

 

 

AMANTIA / VOICE OF REASON

(Beaming with light from her chest, to EVIL)

DISAPPOINTING NEWS

YOU HAVE NO OUT, BUT TO CHOOSE

(Pointing at EVIL)

WHEN WE LOVE ENOUGH

WE CONQUER YOUR EVIL’S BLUFF

TAKE YOUR FALSE SALVATION RUSE

THIS PARTING YOU CAN’T REFUSE

BE GONE, BE GONE, YOU LOSE

BE GONE, BE GONE, YOU LOSE

In The Name Of God
July 13, 2010

The Eye of God

He’s behind me, half an inch from my bumper and talking on his cell phone. He swerves into the next lane cutting off the driver in that lane, then proceeds to maneuver in and out of traffic recklessly. On the back of his vehicle is the fish symbol and the word ‘Jesus’. To me, this implies, when God is on your side it justifies your actions. Afterall, God is omnipotent, unquestionable and perfect. Unfortunately, the person representing God in this case is not quite complete in his faultlessness. Of course, this is all judgement and perception. And this is the crux of the problem.

To pronounce God as a justification in some action, it can only stem from some belief we have learned or hold dear. It’s only when the action is seen in the eyes of history that the aforementioned event was ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. And that is only based on what is happening in history at that moment. A conclusion to this would be to say that there is no ‘right’ and no ‘wrong’. It’s a moment that happened.

Beliefs are what make our world significant to ourselves. Without them there is no purpose. We should never stop questioning the beliefs we have learned, unless one of the avatars personally visits us and has a heart to heart conversation. But then again, previous ‘words’ from sages have created a lot of wars.
