The Secure Self…

One of the by products of self awareness is ego; ego in the extreme is insecurity, insecurity in the extreme is self loathing, self loathing taken to the extreme manifests as spiritual imbalance, leading to depression, madness, suicide and or homicide. We see now in humanity the extremes of ego, insecurity and self loathing taken to their nth degree. Only a healthy, secure awareness of self, that exists beyond the reflection of the looking glass, can restore balance; through first self soothing, then self healing and then finally self loving. Only by loving and saving ourselves can our selves be loved and saved.

Just LOVE…

Remember The Dream…

Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Jesus, Buddha all shared the dream that one day all men would live as equals in truth, peace, harmony, happiness, freedom and LOVE.

We stand at a final crossroads one path leads to realization of the dream and the other the annihilation of the species the dream was dreamt for.

I offer this as admonishment, an observation of facts, a defining of choice to be made, not harsh warning or threat; for I know no being can be feared into loving.

Just LOVE…

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.


The Requirement of Forgiveness…

Unconditional LOVE and unconditional forgiveness both share the same requirement, to LOVE another without condition you must first LOVE yourself without condition and to forgive another without condition you must first forgive yourself without condition. In doing so LOVE and forgiveness become your natural states of being no matter the other or the condition. 

I already LOVE you, because I already LOVE me…
I already forgave you, because I already forgave me…

Just LOVE…

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” ~ Louis B. SmedesImage

I Understood You…

Though you have chosen to die on bed of thorns my LOVE covered by a blanket of fear, to your final day I will stay, until you’re fading light is gone and my final tear for you hath fallen, so that you may know in your final breath, forever I have loved you still. Still now, silent now, in the arms of LOVE now, resting in peace, the last of the sadists and masochists has passed; I need weep for you no more. Sweet dreams of Infinity my LOVE know that I loved you because I understood you, because I was you…

Just LOVE…

“Try to understand men. If you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and almost always leads to love.” ~ John Steinbeck

Fear Perverts…

Fear distorts and strips from memory the joy of experiencing in purest form what already is perfection. 

Decadence and greed is fear perverting and hoarding the happiness and abundance that is life, that is LOVE.

We have been given all we need to live in bliss, it is our irrational want that leads to tribulation in this. 

Just LOVE…
Kip Baldwin
“Pleasant it is, when over a great sea the winds trouble the waters, to gaze from shore upon another’s great tribulation; not because any man’s troubles are a delectable joy, but because to perceive you are free of them yourself is pleasant.” ~ LucretiusImage

Fighting For What?

We say we fight for life, but have we forgot the life we are fighting for?

For now it seems that our fight for life has become a life of fight and life for only fighting is not a life worth fighting for.

When once what was your source of protection, becomes the source you must be protected from, it is no longer the source of your protection, but the gravest source of your mortal danger.

If every of life’s moments intention is to fight and protect, fighting and protecting will be how all life’s moments are wasted.

If every of life’s moments intention is to be in peace and surrender, being in peace and surrendering will be how all life’s moments are treasured.

Each breath of life to sweet, each moment in LOVE to dear, to spend a single more fighting life’s current, drowning in fear.

Fearing is surviving to fight, not to die
Loving is living in harmony, to BE…

Just LOVE…
Kip Baldwin
“It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.” ~ Helen Keller

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” ~ Friedrich NietzscheImage

Spoiled, Bullies, Man…

If God made any mistakes in the creating of man it is that she gave and loved us too much and in doing so we have evolved to become the spoiled brats, the school yard bullies, plucking feathers from the wings of Angels just to gleefully see them cry. The lesson however all overly indulged children must one day learn, that we should be learning, but are still ignoring, is the very short fall it is from prince to pauper.

Just LOVE…
Kip Baldwin
“One of the great attractions of patriotism – it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what’s more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.” ~ Aldous HuxleyImage

A Birthday Wish To Mom…

Happy Birthday To Judy Baldwin my Mom…

Like the waves that crash against the sandy beaches and jagged shores along the wild and lonely coast, each reborn in the moment, shared by an eternal sea, so to are we reborn in each moment anew. The waves likes us have the briefest time in storm and sun, before they break and are called back to oneness with the sea. But unlike like us, the waves know the moment is all they have; no past to remember and regret, no future discontented with this now to yearn for. May this your rebirth in another moment new, bring the gift of joy of now without remorse of yesterday or want of tomorrow. 


All my love, Your son KipImage

Only LOVE is real; Only LOVE is God…

Standing at the divide between man and God; on one side I see pavement cold with no memory of the planet’s history, its evolution; houses made from murdered trees and raped forests, you can hear Mother screaming. 

And on the other even rocks alive warm with the wisdom of knowing what it means to come into being; trees living, thriving, homes to a rainbow of animal spirits, Mother slumbering gently, peacefully in LOVE’s embrace. 

God is life, creation, Infinity, LOVE, truth. Man is death, destruction, mortality, fear, lie. 

But reality remembered there is no division and only one side; the other only vivid nightmarish fever dream.

Just LOVE…
