Tears – Blog No. 6

rain

Any religious practice or philosophy that discredits the power, the potency, indeed the necessity of tears, is one that makes me not only suspicious, but downright skeptical. When your religion teaches you that tears are a weakness, an indulgence – or even an attention-seeking activity – your need to question the integrity of that religion intensifies exponentially. If you are so highly spiritually evolved that you find no value in the physical expression of sadness then I would have to say your years of spiritual training leave me disappointed and more than a little distressed that there are so few people with a true understanding of pure compassion.

It does not matter who you are – your job on this planet is to raise mankind to the heights they are capable of achieving. NOT simply glorifying yourself and leaving the rest of mankind to ‘save themselves’. If you attain your nirvana, your zenith, you are obliged – in order to demonstrate gratitude for your attainment – to use every piece of knowledge, wisdom and awareness that you have gained in your life to assist others. If you do not – will not – do that, then you have failed at life, by and large, no matter what rung of the ladder you think you are on. The ‘elevation’ of oneself is essential in part, naturally, but the bigger picture is the ‘lifting up’ of every single person, too. And everyone means everyone. This means judgementalism serves no purpose other than indicating your own particular frailties as a human being and your selfish determination to be part of an ‘elite’ group that stands head and shoulders above the multitude of others. That is not acceptable.

We would not have evolved to 2015 with tear ducts and emotions as intense as they are for many people if they did not serve an urgent purpose. If you cannot cry – you cannot claim to feel authentically the plight of this planet and that in itself is cause for my greatest concern. We need to share the sad load. Where do you think the daily agonies and sufferings of the millions of animals – and people – go? Into some giant incinerator somewhere in the sky? They don’t. That pain is a living energy – a force in motion – and for those who think tears are a waste of time, think again. You are not wise if you relegate to ‘another’ that pain by avoidance or the conviction that tears are pointless if you truly understand ‘God’. They are not. That tends towards self-righteousness and self-righteousness is dangerous – inadvisable – for any person wishing a life of consequence.

Tears are an instant stress-release.  That is a good thing.  An essential in the restoration of balance. They are proof, too, that there are a few people on this planet who do care enough for the wonder of ALL life to cry for the demise of every sentient being. And that – in itself – is a wonderful thing.  A reason for hope.

Force – Blog No. 3

spfol0458In order for military force to be eradicated from this world, all the countries on the planet would need to be trustworthy.  They are not.  Can you imagine North Korea ever opening up and becoming trusting of the rest of the world?  You cannot trust them to be open for one minute.  They are paranoid.  Scared of watermelons.  And that is dangerous; it makes for reactionary, trigger-happy.  Certainly they are not the only ones who do not trust in this world.  In fact I do not think any leader trusts any other leader, really.  I am not surprised.  Each has their agenda to try and squeeze into the Universal schedule and it would seem that when time is measured, as it is, there is no space in the calendar for charity.

The best loyalty is that which develops through ongoing mutual trust.  You cannot force loyalty.  You cannot employ fear and expect to be shown loyalty.  Ever.  Fear may force allegiance, but it cannot force loyalty.  At base-level, loyalty is what you want.  It is what you need in this life.  When it comes to loyalty, tread gently, respectfully.  You are working with heart.  You cannot force your heart.  It should be said that a forced hand is not a happy hand.  It may do your bidding, but it will not move to save you when the tables are turned.  And believe me, the tables are always turned.

A forceful spirit is not what to aspire to.  Please remember, spirit is gentle.  Unless it gets extremely angry.  Let’s keep the collective spirit, calm.  Understand that because of the way we have all built Earth, force is occasionally necessary – to explain in this day and age to a mindset warped by violence – that violence is not acceptable.  After countless experiments it has been established that this is the only effective measure (with the majority, the masses) in getting a violent mindset to stand down.
