Can I ask myself what it is that I really know? Am I open to radically changing the way I think, feel and act? This blog pursues these questions and reflects where this ongoing exploration into consciousness and into my original nature leads me.
a sun cycle we call a year,
this planet has been alive for many millions
of years of beings alive and sentient
living together – finally – peacefully
used their sentience to explore what we can create together
in love and abundance enjoying being together.
where are they now? no one knows for sure, the ancients
left some of their buildings we find so we know
of them they lived long ago millions of years.
must have gained the wisdom black diamond of silence
to have lived millions of years peacefully enjoying eternity.
what about us? we can too sure we can once we humble ourselves
to know we are part of this too same as them why not?
only still toddlers in our spirit crawling along our heads too heavy to lift
so we can see a bit further see those who came before and
are still here only not so low
let’s raise our eyes our heads up to the heavens
the stars the sky so blue
deep blue and full of mystery our friend our mother and father
the mystery so warm and dark our womb so lose your fear
raise your head your eyes your spirit it’s all just here for you
as you – not against you don’t believe it – help the others to
understand and stand now up on our feet looking straight
ahead with our head up high.
come on, you can do it too
sure you can.
New Earth Heartbeat
This blog brings to the reader material from various sources as well as my own experiences that can assist us to realize ourselves as a part of this one spaceless and timeless Being that we all are. This can lead to the perspective and realization of oneness.
Living New Earth
By “Living New Earth”I mean that each of us is able right now to live just the way we want to and just the way we imagine life is in New Earth. This has to do with our thoughts in every moment. It means asking myself if this thought is really the thought I want to have? This also has to do with my attitude towards the things and beings in my surroundings.
“If we’re a free person, we aren’t conditioned by the things around us. We just smile to them and we make our path. Our surroundings are like a mirror. If we smile, the mirror smiles. If we cry, the mirror cries. If we’re angry, then the situation becomes angry. But even if the situation looks angry, if we are able to smile, then the surroundings smile with us. So the surroundings are coming from our mind.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, Nothing to Do, Nowhere to Go, p. 176
I ask myself if this is the way I want to be toward this person, or animal, or plant? Do I want to be patient with the objects in my life or impatient and irritated? Do I allow my anger to flare up at the car that swerves into my lane on the road, or do I have the inner strength to smile in that moment, and see how that changes things?
How about my relation to my body? Am I caring and considerate of its present condition, treating it like a cherished friend? Or do I “use” it without a sense of love and caring?
And so the list goes on for pages if we want. The new aspect of our life in this present situation on our planet as I see it is that each of us is now ready to live our lives according to our own personal sense of excellence. We are ready to give up the compromises that we have let ourselves in on in respect to our own integrity. We are no longer willing to live in a way that compromises our integrity with what we know we can do.
We can be aware every moment of the day, and even in the night. Although we may still go unconscious sometimes, but we know that day by day our practice is paying off. We know this and now we are ready to live this knowledge. The more we can live in mindfulness moment by moment, the more we will be in a clear mental, emotional and physical space. Living a peaceful and orderly life makes it possible for us to live in the energy stream of our True Being. May this blog support you in that.
Be well in all you do!
