To and fro’ the skitter and scatter of life, we bask under the Sun likes reptiles in our hot, dense concrete jungles. Flicking our forked tongues out as we spit curses in fits of road rage, the moment it takes to remember who we are lengthens its draw, to the point that our shortening attention spans forget to resume after pause. But as we all can see within and around us, many people are awakening to their True Selves and the Reality that stirs about.
As the World endures its collapse, the process of death and dying accelerates with alarming speed, like it had been during the days of Noah. Equally, life and living exhibit the same superlative rate whereby those with even the slightest hunch to discover a higher purpose in life awaken many mysterious things within their Self, realizing the extraordinary person they are.
In as much, the ever present Weltschmerz lingers in the back of our minds. Day by day, it pushes itself further past the crowded mind, and eventually into the forefront of who we are and what we stand for as Human Beings. You see, this empathy every true Human possesses is the great cause that will unite Humanity once again to oppose, and to ultimately uplift and transform, the forces of evil. And these forces of evil live in our external World, corrupting and perverting as we see so often in today’s news. However, they live also as our most subconscious nightmares transfixed by doubt and fear. This is the reptilian brain they call the amygdala where our fight-or-flight response compels our moral compass.
And when we see those who fret over minuscule “bad hair days” and sports soap operas, it is not because they are inherently uncaring, but rather they are unsure of how to approach fear. They live running away from it through distraction after distraction, for stability of status and home is what they deem as “peace”. Deep down, they truly do wish to live in a World of complete peace, love, and harmony, and it is through this collective innate nostalgia that we desire to create goodness and beauty in our lives.
While our godly intent may be strong and pure, we are often bombarded with temporary setbacks that require us to rewind and rewire how we express our Selves to one another and how we decide our choices, all in superconscious effort to rectify our Being, for we are unable to truly love from a partially-filled vessel. And this vessel I speak of is our Heart, but I do not intend that any part is “absent”. Instead, those parts that have lied dark and dormant for such a long while must be revived if we wish to activate the full power of our Being. To do so, the Heart must rip in order for it to stretch and grow, just like any other muscle we exercise. We must tackle the issues directly that bother us and not expect the Truth to be good or bad. Despite our mood towards the Truth, there is peace in that knowledge of its honest Reality. With that equipped, the path is laid easily before us once again. But even if it entails ill fortune, again it is strengthening your Heart. It was a powerful lesson needed for you to become your own very best Self – your God Self and the Sun of the Earth who will indeed make this World a better place for all.
