Serenade the ocean deep
Stand aghast at the maiden who mourns her childhood
Give compassion by your joyous tongue
Test yourself that you have clean eyes
And be her brother who will not stand for anything against her purity
This stranger now becomes your kin
And shares your holy song
Men will come and try to dominate you
And you will laugh at their folly
They do not know true power
They can only see a glimmer of mystery from your eyes, from your stature
You are no longer like the others
Something has changed within you
The scorching heat of selfishness has abated from your way
You walk strong with direction, giving generously to all the land and those who come near
Mother Earth loves you special, you have a reciprocal relationship
As with the Moon, as with the Sun
You can see the outlines of greatness and beauty in the people who don't even see it in themselves
You can see the little things that are cause for deep joy
Though you may speak or be silent, your presence communicates a naturalness that penetrates the hearts of those around you
Your authenticity is a solid rock you stand upon with the utmost confidence.
Your large belly is profound in fullness, and though you need nothing, you graciously accept all that comes
You wouldn't dare speak trivially, but elevate those around you in your humility, seeing them as they are, great souls with great purpose in their births.
All of their births have brought them here, serendipitous fortune is in the air
This epoch, though it knows tremendous evil, is the time of light
We are here in blossom time to transform from within
And by our mirthful dispositions, alive in eudaimonia, connected to that Source of all sources
We will create a Heaven on Earth.
You're already there.
Just look within.
Some people think they need to find "home" to live in the light, depending on their disposition, you might call them seekers. I want to tell seekers that they really have two options, there is "home" or there's what we choose to do with our lives, and the best choice before finding "home" is sublimation of negative emotion into positive creation of some kind. Whether that's helping someone else to feel better, committing to living more ethically, or creating art - there are so many ways to take what holds us down and use it as fuel to act in accordance with our higher selves. The paradoxical danger of sublimation is that it solves our problem of suffering and thus stops us finding the ultimate solution of becoming at "home". Probably, sublimation should be used but also there's something more we should not stop searching for despite better managing our emotions and behaviors. Positive emotions can be fleeting, unless we find the joy of our Spirit. Negative emotions can be crippling if we don't have a meaningful daily task list and schedule that keeps us going. The thing that makes this all so comical is that all this trauma and heartache exists only in the mind, which in itself is an illusion. The ego is formed from the thought of separateness thinking that "I" am the doer, instead of holding steady that there are universal forces, some may call them God, who are in fact in control of all things. We think that our reactions to external events are justified and natural but they in fact bind us to Maya and ignorance and to our smaller selves, our egos, our minds. Spirit is infinite, it is a reflection of the All Pervading, that is who we are, if we can only realize it. That's not just a mental recognition, it's a becoming that happens through Self-Realization, but even just knowing this mentally can be liberating to a degree.(I would urge you not to be satisfied with illusory mental understanding though) People however are often lost in their feelings and only the feeling of liberation from connecting wholely with one's Spirit is satisfying enough to stop all further desires. The only eternal desire is to become one with God. The only true knowledge is the eternal knowledge, all else fades away as the temporal body leaves us and we pass back into the realm of pure consciousness (results varying depending on our individual fates and levels of perception at the time of passing). The Buddhists say that life is dukkha (suffering), and that the transcendence of dukkha comes from eliminating all desire and attachments. The detachment to everything temporal happens effortlessly when we become attached to experiencing our Spirit. Spirituality is the most practical thing, it solves all our human wants and tribulations. God will overflow your cup with love and joy, if you only sit and open your hands to receive it. Truth is a paradox, you have to close your eyes to open them.
It's your choice, you can receive your Self-Realization and start your journey of Spirit today.
And now tell me
Is the sky behind you?
Is it going to be different?
What gives you wings and what makes you fly higher
