Purgatory is the city man built on earth pretending Godhood while still behaving the most barbaric beast.
Purgatory is the place where one claims LOVE of life while living every moment fearing and bringing death.
Purgatory is the place between forgetting fear and remembering LOVE,
between surviving in flesh and living in soul, between being fooled by lie and believing truth.
Purgatory is choosing to dance with one foot in hells ballroom.
Heaven is realized only when faith in LOVE’s infinite song is complete and the dance of eternal life burns the feet no more.
“Mephistopheles: Within the bowels of these elements,
Where we are tortured and remain forever.
Hell hath no limits, nor is circumscribed
In one self place, for where we are is hell,
And where hell is must we ever be.
And, to conclude, when all the world dissolves,
And every creature shall be purified,
All places shall be hell that is not heaven.”
~ Christopher Marlowe
What a sense freedom it is to be able to walk into the forest, into the wilderness, no cell phones beeping, ringing, tweeting, Facebooking; only the wind, a sea of browns and greens, birds chirping, creatures chattering, the air filled with lingering scents of wild sage and Manzanita. A reconnection with truth, reality, nature, life. Yes, the freedom of just being a part of being; the beauty of just one sacred breath, LOVE of the divine awareness of life, of creation. So blessed are we…
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.” ~ Anne Frank
Fear is chaos and LOVE is order. Man says he wants order and abhors chaos never admitting or even realizing that it is he himself that is the chaos he abhors. In fact, if truth be told, in all the universe known by man, all is order; the ONLY chaos that exists, that man says he abhors, is the chaos that he himself is. Fear is chaos, LOVE is order…
To fear change/death is to invite chaos, as it dams the flow that is life’s eternal and infinite process unfolding; for there to be life, LOVE must flow unimpeded; breach the dam, end the chaos, let LOVE flow…
“Chaos is a name for any order that produces confusion in our minds.” ~ George Santayana
The hardest fear to overcome when realizing LOVE’s fullest infinite potential, is not the first remembering of what you in LOVE in truth are, but the last letting go of what without LOVE you were not.
Falling is always frightening, allowing yourself to fall completely into LOVE is no different, but you must let go your final fear if you are to freely fall.
Make this your mantra; fearlessly freely I am letting go of what I was not, to fall completely into the LOVE I am…
“There is another interesting paradox here: by immersing ourselves in what we love, we find ourselves. We do not lose ourselves. One does not lose one’s identity by falling in love.” ~ Lukas Foss
The collective despair of those who do not yet know and believe in the true power of LOVE, is almost overwhelming for those who do. Like insanity constantly beaconing; a siren, a banshee beseechingly mesmerizing; come back to the asylum.
It is only by LOVE’s grace from the straight jacket of civilization they did slip to begin with and it is only by LOVE’s grace that they thrive, free and sane.
With Angels, free, LOVE’s choir of Seraphim harkens you from mankind’s madhouse to Infinity soar…
Madness is not believing you can, with LOVE beneath your wings fly, madness is being so fearful you never try.
“In a mad world, only the mad are sane.” ~ Akira Kurosawa
Light giving is not something a star must do, light is just what the stars are
LOVE giving is not something we must do, LOVE is just what we are
Just be the LOVE you are and like a star, for Infinity you will shine…
“Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.” ~ John Lennon
The more I am remembered in LOVE,
The more what I once believed I was
Dissipates into the truth of what I am
I am not flower, nor am I even sky,
I am beyond the beyond and nearer the near
I am that place that is no place
I am LOVE in LOVE, matter-less, without fear
In LOVE all is and are perfection
Waiting to be remembered…
“This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfections.” ~ Saint Augustine
The ship was built; the ship sank
The deck chairs were rearranged; the ship sank
Again the deck chairs were rearranged and again; the ship sank
Again and again and again the deck chairs were rearranged and again and again; the ship sank
Finally the ship builders after eons awoke; untold resources had they squandered and billions of lives had they wasted; it was not the placement of deck chairs that was flawed, but the philosophy behind the design of the ship itself
How many times must the deck chairs be rearranged and the ship named Fear sink, before a new ship is designed, crafted and built of LOVE; that shall forever in peace and freedom sail to eternities distant shores… once more
That will be named ship named The Awakening!
“A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed color. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to. And there were no limits to anything. And the people of the world were good and handsome. And I was not afraid any more.” ~ John Steinbeck
We are all fools or geniuses. The true genius listens to his instincts, follows LOVE. While the fool listens to only other fools and follows fear. It is our choice which one we are.
You have no idea what you know, until you allow yourself to remember what you innately, instinctually know.
We are all Einstein’s in LOVE…
“Love has its own instinct, finding the way to the heart, as the feeblest insect finds the way to its flower, with a will which nothing can dismay nor turn aside.” ~ Honore de Balzac
My choices in life have covered my soul with scars and not one do I regret, for my scars mirror yours. And in that mirroring of scars, that shared experience of wounds and losses is my blessing of truest understanding, my gift of purest empathy with all. I love my scars and not one would I remove, because each is a reminder of the vulnerability that we must all have to experience the LOVE we share. LOVE may heal all wounds, but the healing leaves scars and the scars are beautiful; I cherish my scars, one and all, as they allow me to LOVE you better.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” ~ Rumi
