I look at divine in the context of ‘like a god’. Not ‘as a god’. I believe that when you divine a need – your need, for example – you are not guessing what is necessary, you are intuiting a solution. When you are divining your outcome – your future, for example – you are guessing. That is not necessary. Your future is not in your hands. Technically, your future you do not need. You may want it, but you do not need it. Your immediate needs are more pressing. I would attend them.
Divine is in aspect, magical. When you consider that the word ‘god’ is what we have chosen to assume is associated with ‘divinity’ you will perhaps understand that the word is in dire need of redefining. As is the word ‘lawlessness’. I have said that before today. Scientists snigger up their sleeves at magic. They have to – if they accepted its actuality it would probably disassociate their focus. That is as well. We all have our ways. Our means to the end. The scientists find the explanations. That is lucky for us.
Divination is a tricky business. You should not get into it unless you are prepared to learn from it your real truth. Like you should not open your mouth unless you know what you are talking about. That is a simple lesson to learn. Like the lesson that dreams are personal. Divination is never inference. Ever. It is wisdom. It is a medium through which myriad spirits speak. If you cannot – or will not – hear the delivery of centuries’ wisdom, that is unfortunate.
I suspect your death, then, was a blessing in disguise.
If it had been proven that being politically correct was a solution to the problems we face on this planet, I would have employed its ‘diplomacy’. It wasn’t. There are times when diplomacy is necessary, despite the idiots you may find yourself facing. And diplomatic means that you speak your mind with regard for your person and respect for another’s intelligence. It does not mean that you lie. When diplomacy goes out of the window it is a sure sign that the shit is going to hit the fan. When that fan is my face, you will know about it. Every single one of you.
I am certain that political correctness had good intentions. It was meant to dress up the mess of this planet in ribbons and bows for those whose sensitivity had already correctly identified it. That was perhaps a kind gesture. It was, though, counter-productive. It showed contempt for the people who have been listening to a ‘truth’ with the view of finding solutions. That this was in part unintentional – given that those who were preaching the bullshit did not know they had a sympathetic audience – is the only aspect that makes their lies acceptable. And white lies are called white lies for a reason. That is not to say that they are the only lies there are.
For those who may not know or understand political correctness for what it is, it is cowardice. Avoidance. It becomes a debilitating habit of telling a people what you think they want to hear instead of starting dialogue that addresses the real problems we all face. That can be as a result of the ‘partriarchal complex’ rife on this planet – one that we have been conditioned to accept. The belief that men are obligated to be the protectors on this planet. Not all of them are. Those that are not natural-born protectors – those who have misrepresented themselves as saviours – will be the ones who lie to you about your reality. They will do this for two reasons: either to save face, or to conceal their weaknesses, their actual inefficacy.
The way you go about your daily business identifies for you who you are. The nuances in your behaviour are clear indicators of how it is to be you, and why it is that you bother. There is always a reason to bother being yourself. As we have heard countless times before, there is no one that can do that better than you can. It can be interesting at times to watch other people try. It can be extremely irritating, too, especially when they will perpetually fuck it up. Once you have identified your true self you will not need to put up with pretence. Not from yourself, and not from others.
There are those in our midst that are trained identifiers. That means they have learned how to see what is in front of their eyes. It would make sense as an identifier to trust your first instincts. They are usually the right ones. It also makes sense to identify a positive rather than a negative. Like it is preferable to meet the truth in a person than it is to make excuses about the lies they use to conceal their real. What on earth is the point of dealing with what is unreal?
When you find that you can accurately identify your every aspect – and for some people that takes a very long time – you will find the ‘inner peace’ that you seek. Until you have identified and accepted your entire being, your past misdeeds and concealments, your basic building blocks – that ‘peace’ will seem to elude you. You can chase peace around in circles for eternity – it is notoriously skittish. If you cannot take on board everything that you are, we are, then there can be no real peace on this planet. If peace is contrived, it is not authentic – and then calling it ‘peace’ is pointless. What does a word mean if it has no substance? Until you show unconditional love for yourself, your fellow earthlings and the vast expanse that is our collective unconscious, peace will forever be one step ahead of our efforts.
