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.
Revolutions are occasionally necessary, despite their untimely arrival. The hows and whys of their happening are perhaps obvious to some, to others their actuality is a surprise. A revolution can be a pleasant surprise. It can also cause a nightmare for those who will circumvent change. Change comes when it is ready. It cannot be subverted. It can be delayed, naturally, but it cannot be prevented. Change inspires fear in the hearts of those who need the order of the old establishment to conceal their misdeeds. Misdeeds are misdeeds – they stand out in the barren landscape of inescapable lies. Lies are lies – nothing can hide their devastation from the truth.
Some people would prefer not to have to revolve. Or evolve, it would seem. That is unfortunate when those people have no choice. Some will go around and around and around, for eternity. Others will pull their particular revolution straight and leave themselves an open passage to the future. There will always be a future if you choose to believe that it exists. Knowing it exists is one thing, the other is finding it. If you do not know at this point where you are in your own future then it would be safe to say that you probably won’t have one to speak of. If you were alive inside your future you would not have to find it – and nor would you still be searching. You would instead be sitting – and waiting.
The purpose of any revolution is to show you something new. New is interesting, no matter how you may feel about it personally. You can be part of a revolution or you can stand on the sidelines and watch it roll by. Either way it will happen. Revolutions don’t tend to ask for permission. They always come at exactly the right time. They know what their work is and they know why it needs doing. Revolutions are worth the effort needed to set them in motion. When they are successful, they take ideas and their people to new places.
As a citizen of planet Earth you have a birthright. Human rights, too. You should value both. They afford you a status loftier than a rock, for example. Your birthright is involved with your karma. If you do not believe in karma, that is perhaps foolish. Karma is an energy. A living force. It resonates at the same frequency that you do, hence your karma is always able to locate you.
Birthright – as a title – should include the following words in its explanation: safety, love, truth, understanding, choice. These are needs. I am not sure enough people on this planet have access to all of the above when they are born. Today’s birthright seems confused between wants and needs. A birthright is about needs. Only.
A person’s birthright makes itself manifest in a fairly forthright manner. It is the measure of your life thus far. What you have been doing since the day you were born is what determines your reward in the form of your birthright. If you are familiar with yourself, you will know who you are the minute you open your eyes. If you aren’t, you won’t.
Roots are the beginnings from seed, like chickens are the beginnings from eggs. We all begin somewhere. Roots are probably what to ask if you will know the state of the world in which we find ourselves. They know it all. They carry through them the news of what is happening in – and to – our environment. Roots can lead to all sorts of things. Even trees. That is their strength.
When you are rooted, you have central balance. Core stability. There are a number of different ways to root yourself. Like there are a number of ways to earth a charge. When there are droughts, roots dig themselves deeper into the ground. They surge, and at times, they reach the water table. That is to their advantage.
When you consider that rotting bodies gone to ground feed the soil with their truths, you will understand that in actual fact many a person’s essence has at some stage travelled through a plant. Perhaps that is why flowers bloom so beautiful.
We have all used them. We have all needed them, it would seem, to survive. This world is made that way. People have been lying to save their skins since time immemorial. I suppose if you lie to save your life you can always hope that it was worth it. Your life, that is.
It is said that people lie out loud, on average, four times every twenty-four hours. I doubt whether that includes the myriad lies people tell themselves all day long – those need counting as well. It would appear that a lot of people feel far safer behind a wall of lies than they do out in the wide open, where reality is happening. That is a pity. A wall of lies is hardly a stronghold. It can be knocked down with one – or two – simple truths. The truth, as simple as it is, is where the ultimate power lies. Everybody knows that.
Lies destroy. They build, yes – bullshit castles in the sky – but their real purpose is to destroy. That is unfortunate when you consider what lies are actually destroying. It is no good thing when the voice of reason we have been conditioned to hear does not speak to us honestly. Reason in itself has always been problem enough, but at least when it was decided that reason was going to ‘lead’ the way, the age-old deciders should have ensured that reason was truth. Unfortunately, lying for a living bent reason sideways and it has never straightened itself out.
Waxing and waning. Ebbing and flowing. These are the tunes of a moon. Part of a moon’s mystery. If moons could speak can you imagine what they would say? They would have a lot to say, that is for certain. I believe that translating the moon’s illumination would yield a truth rich in emphasis and understatement. Moons are humble with their majesty.
Is a moon male, or female? There is the man on the moon, his testimony. Testimony from a man is very different to testimony from a woman. This is something that should always be remembered. Perhaps the energy field that suspends a moon in orbit is female. Perhaps the essence of a moon is female. It does matter.
A new moon. A full moon. Howling wolves silhouetted on hilltops. Feeding vampires caught neckside by moonbeams. Angels riding the high tide. Demons sleeping, deep. Our moon has many friends in this world. Many admirers. It has always been this way. A moon inspires awe in the right people. The right people know who they are; and they are lucky.
