“Believe it or not, you are parading yourself naked, drunk and writing every time you press “Publish.” -- Adour Lara
The other day while having lunch with new friends, I said ,”Tell me about your past.”
The man said, “I know yours.”
“What do you mean?”
“I read your book.”
He found me on Amazon and read “Mother’s Letters,” It isn’t about me so much as about my mother, but I felt exposed, embarrassed—well I did reveal things about myself. Of late I had been thinking of taking that book off Amazon and replacing it with Mother’s Letters only, plus a brief intro and epilog by me. No more expose’. I'm done.
And I thought I was talking to you personally.
I’m sitting here with all my clothes on, I drank a smoothie for breakfast—no alcohol in it, and well, I’m just thinking through my fingers…So what shall we talk about?
Last week I saw the movie Free State of Jones (ruined my state of mind for days), but I believe as the teacher #Abraham said that as the old ones croak and new ones come into being, the old ways are diluted. We have evolved. We aren’t the people of yesterday. And the new ones now being born are cable ready—and with that a higher consciousness.
The other day my little seven-year-old grandson was contemplating the Big Bang Theory, and who made God.
I said, “Well, the man named Einstein with his equation E=MC2 said that matter is neither made nor destroyed. Perhaps it always was.
“Good idea that man Einstein had,” he said.
Things are changing.
I’m not the only one championing the cause for living a life of freedom. Caz of Y-Travel says, “It’s about our journey of unplugging from the chaos. Saying no to the fears and the things that don’t serve us, and saying yes to our dreams, and to the life connection we crave.”
When I say freedom that is what I mean, the internal freedom we give ourselves.
Each night as we lay our heads on our pillow we are given another opportunity to awaken into a new day.
Do we pick up the thoughts, worries, concerns of the night before? Do we get up, make coffee, check the computer, shower, go to a job we don’t like, grumble through the day, come home, collapse, watch the news (horror), fall into bed and do it all over again.
No wonder we have gotten into the “robotization, that James Clerk Maxwell spoke about.
Maxwell was a physicist and mathematician who lived from 1831 to 1879. Maxwell proposed that a fourth-dimensional universe exists. There are the three dimensions, of course, that we can see-- height, width, and depth. Maxwell proposed of a fourth one exists that we can’t see. (You explain that one to me, perhaps that is where intuition, psychic abilities, and hunches lie, and that feeling that we want more…
”Little sister, little brother, don’t believe a word about things you’ve heard about askin’ too much too soon. You can hold back the tide, but you can never hold the woman, I say the woman in the moon…” Barbra Streisand
Maxwell often spoke of “authenticity.” He wrote that in a society that is becoming increasingly insane, only a concern for ethics can restore sanity. To arrest the process of robotization, he said, each person needs to develop high ethical standards to rejuvenate the society.
Think about it. We all have our little corner of the world. If each of us reached for that authenticity Maxwell wrote about, there would be no need to “save” anyone.
I see this new thought enlightening the globe like a special effects wave.
I once met a biologist who worked for Nikon Industries. She had seen the fertilization of a human embryo in a petre dish. She said the moment the sperm enter the ova a flash occurred.
There was the moment of life.
There is an often old story—you wonder about these stories sometimes, but this story is about the 100th monkey.
So the story goes, there was an island with a tribe of monkeys. Sweet potatoes were their primary source of food. One day one little monkey took her sweet potato to the water’s edge and washed it. Soon other monkeys, having not seen the first one wash her potato, began to wash theirs. Soon all the monkeys on the island were washing their potatoes.
This story is used to emphasize that once an idea is introduced into a culture, it spreads whether taught or not. Makes you wonder about that 4th dimension Maxwell spoke of doesn’t it?
So, what or who is sucking your energy?
From Caz’s website, More energy sucks:
· society’s expectations
· schedules and demands
· over commitment to tasks and people that don’t matter
· overconsumption and materialism
· the habit of competing, comparing, criticizing
· a life of shoulds
· a traditional path that does not make you feel alive (traditional is okay IF it is your mojo).
· relationships that don’t serve you.
· devices that steal your time with meaningless crap, memes, bullshit, and other people’s drama.
A 1995 recorded conversation at sea. (Released rather mischievously.)
Navy voice: “Please divert your course 15 to the North to avoid a collision.
Civilian voice: “Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
Navy Voice: “This is the captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.”
Civilian Voice: “I say again divert your course.”
Navy Voice: “This is the airship Enterprise, we are a large warship of the US Navy. Divert your course now.”
Civilian Voice: “This is the lighthouse. Your call.”
