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.
“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 Huxley
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 Kip
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.
“Why struggle to open a door between us when the whole wall is an illusion?” ~ Rumi
Life is like an infinite ocean and experiencing it is a lot like swimming; if you fear the water and fight it with your every movement, soon your energy will be drained and you will drown, but if you LOVE truly the water, letting it energize, buoy and carry you with every breath, you will swim forever… so much ocean to be discovered; swim freely in LOVE, live fully life.
“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
If fear is the truth and real and LOVE the lie and the illusion, then let me die now the deceived, forever cocooned in the stillness and silence where all lovers dream as one.
You cannot be in the same moment in both apart in the body and wholly a part of the soul, so for all my moments to come I choose holy soul; even if it is soul that is not real, I still choose soul; I still choose the delusion of Heaven’s wholeness, to this tortured reality of apartness.
Heaven in the simplest of explanations is our return to the infinite oneness; where there is no duality, only singularity. It is from that singularity that, that core, that source, that Heaven, that bursts forth, all existences by illusions of comparison.
“To be great, be whole;
Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you.
Be whole in everything. Put all you are
Into the smallest thing you do.
So, in each lake, the moon shines with splendor
Because it blooms up above.” ~ Fernando Pessoa
Man is created, fear chooser, chaos bringer, mortally ignorant; God is creator, LOVE giver, infinite organizer, eternally omnipotent
Fear is the small and petty mind; while LOVE is the genius that embraces Infinity and beyond.
Man is the self caged hamster, on the wheel. He must run, run, run or the other rats will get round the wheel first; see how fast they run over and over and over to nowhere.
“We need to teach the next generation of children from day one that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind’s greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Fear disempowers, manifesting delusions of strength through force physical; only the strong survive.
LOVE empowers, sharing the reality of divine might by embracing the Soul’s gentle wisdom; The meek shall inherit the Earth…
Being fearless means not that you have no fear left to face, it means only that you are unafraid of facing the fears you have left.
Souls across infinite space and time,
Countless hearts seen in rainbows
Eternally and ethereally entwined
As LOVE’s light shines through the prisms
Of the final sorrowful drops of pained rain
Falling in the wake of fear’s storm passing…
“Ignore those that make you fearful and sad, that degrade you back towards disease and death.” ~ Rumi
