We are born, spend most of our lives in public education or watching television. We hit 18 years of age, go to college for even more public education or we start working. We spend most our adults live in a mechanistic world, trading labor for food, shelter, and health care. Other than a few weeks of vacation every year, this is the vast majority of our lives.
We are born, spend most of our lives in public education or watching television. We hit 18 years of age, go to college for even more public education or we start working. We spend most our adults live in a mechanistic world, trading labor for food, shelter, and health care. Other than a few weeks of vacation every year, this is the vast majority of our lives. Most people earn between just enough and not enough to pay for the basics of shelter, food and disease care. A few retire with enough money to barely live a relaxed life, but many will work till the body passes on. Our spare time is minimal, little time to smell the roses, no time to enjoy the interconnectedness of life, no time to pursue our passions without them feeling like an inconvenience, no time to live an inspired life, no time or energy for compassion or patience. We are trained to be dismissive and obedient, not to believe in abundance, to believe we have to compete or have nothing, or to work ourselves to death to have barely, to believe that those in geographical locations far away from us are out to get us. In this world, a very miniscule subset of the people are trusted to nurture and steward the world and it’s inhabitants. A monopolized few decide what most are taught in schools. A minority elite control what is shown in the ‘news’. A barely noticeable fraction of society controls the laws.
A committee of just a few control the worlds major currencies. These same handful exploit the land for profit at the expense of the rest of humanity while laying waste to the animals and plants of this planet. These few hide their actions while spying on the rest and generally own and control most of the worlds Corporate for profit. Governments that use false definitions of the words Social, Community, Market, Liberty, Republic, Democracy and so many more. This tiny handful drive the Election system that aims to polarize and present the false illusion of choice. This world is cold and dark, with little support. Circumstances frustrate us dozens or hundreds of times a day. We wake up earlier than we would like, sleep less than what is healthy, spend most of our days in survival mode, have little time to enjoy our meals, and not nearly enough time to spend with our most cherished family and friends. This world is full of drama and trouble that plays out over and over again in changing settings, in a continual escalation.
We live an inspired life. We can literally do anything we choose, as long as we reciprocally hold out the best intentions for others. If there are one or more governing bodies, they exist only by expressed consent, and anyone can withdraw consent at anytime. It’s understood that Governing bodies are transparent to the people while the people remain private or public by choice. Anyone can decide to offer a system of knowledge, wisdom, or education, not forced on another, but as a choice. Currency can be created or used by anyone of their freewill, and there are as many currencies as communities. We each get to decide for ourselves who we want aiding us in our health and well being. We have ample time to enjoy our creative selves, be it music, art or science. In a cyclic manner, we enjoy times of solitude/independence and times of community, and we have the free will choice in every moment. We realize that in every moment of anger or frustration, it’s the infinite wisdom of the universe unfolding events before us in an effort to resolve that separation within us. Presence is Being the Heart Centered Inspired Expression of the Genuine Self in the Now Time. We embrace the seemingly limitless moments of frustration and anger, since we know it’s that power that created all life, never giving up in choreographing events, to aid us in moving from a place of separation to a place of presence. Presence laughs out loud, the moment it comes out of the state of Separation, that moment when it realized the only reason for the drama and the trouble was for the purpose of moving awareness back to Presence. Presence enjoys the uniqueness yet interconnectedness of all and the abundance it is afforded. Presence does not attach to the left or the right, nor sits on the fence between.
