Those who survived my Facebook rant, welcome. And I apologize. But the herd has been thinned.
I don’t know why people left, but they had good reason to do so. Never question yourself. Just know that you have no free will and are just doing what must be done. It may feel good, bad or neutral, but it isn’t you. You are used by either the light or the darkness and it changes all of the time. If you were always used by the light, you would not be here on earth.
There are not nearly as many awakened beings as you would like to think or hope there are. There are, however, a multitude of sinners (those which are off the mark, no judgement).
I love the line in the song, “Sing, You Sinners,” that goes:
“Lift up your voices in song
You know you’ve all done wrong.”
The fact is that the ego does nothing but wrong in the name of rightness.
Repentance is simply acknowledging that you are off the mark. You need to take a deep breath and start life all over again.
Humility takes consciousness and consciousness takes energy. Save your energy for inner work. All else is vanity.
I read a Leonard Cohen quote today that said, in so many words, that he stopped thinking about himself all the time. What an advance that is! To instead, look and listen to the world around you.
To broaden your gaze, to get it out of your navel and on what is happening all around you.
Today the house across the creek is getting a new roof. The hammers are joyously pounding. The wind is blowing the tender young leaves and yesterday the hawk left a feather in my front yard. Hallelujah! It can be eternal spring in your heart or eternal winter. It’s up to you.
