to catch a vision beyond one’s own creature needspreferencesambitions...desires…and goals

in other words…

when one’s concerns extend beyond mememe

and one’s attention turns within…to seek something highersomething more meaningfulthan…Self

that one is finally ready to take…those first first baby steps toward Self-Knowledge

towards WHOLENESS of BEING

 

for the Ego cannot gain entry to the Higher Realms

into the Sacred Knowledge of the whowhat…and why…of human existence on planet earth

so...

lift up your visionseek higher than this human realm for understanding...

lift up your vision into the Higher Realms of Consciousnessreach higher…and even higher

for the truth that lies beyond the limits of earthly concerns…

reach higher…

and 

still

higher

Ase.

FEAR with TRUST...

Trust in that which we cannot see…taste…touch…hear…or smell…

but Whose Presence is felt with every heartbeat...every breath

it is time to TRUST… 

Fear Not…

as your body flys through the air…

after a “Don Juan” leap of Faith

off the mountain of FEAR

 

you will land somewhere…

intact

and more Whole...

Humanity In The Grips Of Existential Fear…

I stopped myself just in time as I was getting ready to fire off an angry, hateful response to an angry, hate-filled bigot who commented on one of my Facebook comments.

Ignore him,” my Better Self whispered. “Do you really want to engage at that level?”

I didn’t. And so, I decided to ignore his hateful remarks and if he persisted with comments, I would send him some “Love.” And, if I ultimately had to block him, I would.

No negative engagements for me—ever—end of report! I don’t have the space in my heart in which to hold both LOVE and HATE. And, furthermore, I understand the source of his hateful words: fear and insecurity. Neither is a stranger to this heart. Hateful racist words spring from feelings of being less than…of not mattering; from unmet needs and frustrations and from a sense of being threatened by people who are not members of one’s “tribe;” people who do not look like one. And who, to add to one’s frustration, may not even speak the same language. So there goes one’s last hope of communication, understanding or brotherhood.

I was not infected with this man’s fear-based anger because I am “Divinely Vaccinated.” And so, my initial angry impulse transformed into tears of sadness…sadness that we humans have strayed so far from who and what we essentially are. We have divided ourselves into warring tribes—now called nations—based on skin color and religions—which are all in essence, stories made up by the men of the tribes (differing slightly according to geographical location) in their unsuccessful attempts to assuage their own and others’ existential fear: not knowing who and what we are and why we are here.

And so, in false, fear-fueled bravado, we kill one another bolstered by the belief that Our God loves us best among all others and will surely smite our enemies.

Oh, humanity…with your childish hubris. Perhaps it’s time we all admit that we don’t know “jack” about anything; that we are all the frightened children of an unknown “Creator.” Perhaps it is time for us to turn within…to the heart…to that beating, pulsating organ at the center of our beings…whose activity or stillness defines life or death.

Perhaps the heart is the holder of the meaning of life…Toni Roberts
