Fall Guy – Blog No. 4

FallGuy

I once knew a person who jumped off a sort-of makeshift bridge to demonstrate his expertise to a skeptical audience of one. That was just as well. It blew up soon thereafter. I admired his wisdom, his vision. Better to be a jumper with implicit faith in flight than a smithereen.

When you become the fall guy, which you inevitably will, where you land is sometimes a surprise. Sometimes. It all depends on which way is up. If you know your ups from your downs and your insides from your outsides, the prospect of landing intact is all that you need to worry about. Asides from that – I would say too much worrying about the whats and ifs is pointless. Worry cannot stop an actuality from happening. Pre-emptive care can do that.

If, perchance, we should interpret ‘fall guy’ as the guy responsible for autumn – or more specifically, for autumnal thinking – then we must suggest that it is the right time for him to get busy living. He needs to pit his reason against the season. When autumnal thinking is allowed to get out of hand, which it currently is, the system can do little but sit on its sidelines and watch itself sink into a perpetual winter. That would be fine if the system would sink alone. It won’t, though. It will try every thing it knows to take all of its advocates with it.

Here we go again … Blog No. 1

So.  2015.  What kind of a year do we want?  What kind of a year do we need?  These are important considerations.  I suspect if it were possible for everyone to agree on one thing, it would be that we do not need a year of disasters.  That would be a good place to begin.  Disasters happen – not without warning, but without permission.  It depends on the proclivity of the disaster, for disaster.  Natural happenings are not synonymous with disaster.  Nature, is Nature.  That will never change.  It would be important to remember that vibrations and frequencies are not felt only by mankind.

It would perhaps be sensible to choose to think positively for the betterment of everything.  If you cannot figure out how to do that, and some people cannot, then begin to think of yourself as a prayer-flag.  Feel your thoughts.  Know they all have purpose.  When the winds of change come, what do wish for them to blow through you?  What do you wish to be left with?  These are some of the things you should be thinking about.  Like what does the ‘prayer’ of you – as written on your particular flag – say for you?  It will say your truth.  That need not be uncomfortable.

There will be ups and downs, as with each year that swings around.  That is normal, to be expected.  What we can hope for, are more ups than downs – in the traditional manner of speaking.  It is time for a few more smiles, given freely, and a lot more love.  Love is what takes us all home.  That is how we can know it is on its way.
