A Natural State of Being – Blog No. 7

beautiful Nature

Your natural state is your natural state.  It cannot be the state of another, no matter how hard they might try.  That is the first piece of good news.  The fact that there is a piece of good news is reason for celebration because it means on some levels the bad news is over.  On those levels they choose to receive the negatives first and save the positives – the best – for last.  I am not sure what news is coming for the levels that chose to take the best first.

Your natural state of being cannot be manipulated.  It is perhaps malleable, in some aspects, but it cannot be ‘shaped’.  In fact, the more you attempt to bend a natural state into itself in order to use it to open doors that are not yours, the more likely you are to get struck by lightning.  That would make coercion, manipulation, pointless.  Of course doors will open for the ‘adjusted natural state’ but they will not be doors that I would choose to go through.

Fear is a natural state of being for some.  Happiness is a natural state for others.  Again – these are choices, made.  Like the choice to be aware of your every gesture, word – and patterns of thinking.  There is not only one state of being.  There are many.  The ability to move seamlessly from one state to another is an art worth learning.  Any art worth learning does not take one minute.  It takes virtually forever.

Possession – Blog No. 3

possession

Once upon a time they said that possession was nine tenths of the law. Where did that leave the last tenth? In limbo, obviously. In this want-want world, possession seems to orbit the thoughts of many people. It seems to give them a sense of self-worth, a sense of pride. That is a pity. You cannot progress beyond the illusory substance of daily life when you are of the opinion that either owning ‘items’ or ‘people’ gives you some standing. It doesn’t. You can, however, possess your own mind. Your thinking. Those go with you wherever you go – and are with you in whichever eternity you end.

I will say it again. You cannot hope to possess a person. That includes your progeny. Such is not possible. The tighter you squeeze – through your own insecurity or the need to dominate another – the further the person you are trying to own will go. It is perhaps like trying to frame a living rainbow. Or contain a feral cat in an old bag. You will simply not succeed. In fact, you may find that by merely trying, you consign your future to the universal trash can. That is not what you want to be doing with the time you have left. The universal dustbin has now officially been emptied, so to find yourself languishing there would be dire, indeed. Certainly you will be devoid of friends and the family you may encounter in that insipid darkness may not be what you are familiar with.

When did the notion of possession get out of hand? Who decided to propagate the principle of such possibility? I think it must have been the early capitalists that got the premise wrong. That is not a problem. We can change it. We can change the premise, and their thinking. All it will take is to show those who follow a wrong set-up that giving is guaranteed to take you far further than the now, the immediate. Giving can open doors that have until this day, stayed closed. If you are not of the giving mindset, then enjoy your time in the trash can. Believe me, it will last forever.
