The spectrum of available information is really quite wide these days, and unless you grow up rooted in some kind of serious tradition, be it sacred or cultural or purely an invention of your immediate family, you are bound to have some pretty strange ideas about the world. Our general outlooks on life can be so different, even though we may spend lots of time interacting, which is a big change from really any other time in history that I can think of. You can go on the internet and nine times out of ten find whatever it is you are actually already looking for, which is a feat already. But what about those times when you find some shit so weird that it makes you question whether or not the shit is real? Let’s face it- the internet is killing truth. Whatever you claim to be true, I can find evidence for the opposite argument. Not that that actually makes it any more true or false- it just demonstrates the relativity of our understandings of the world around us to the world around us.
We’re going to war with Iran. They’re only shooting for 35-40% public support. The big kickoff will be on September 11th.
You know, one of the first things that was changed in Iraq after Saddam’s regime was toppled was the currency. Saddam’s image and other symbols were removed from all forms of legal tender. Then, after that was done, they started putting together a new government. The money had new symbols and faces on it, I’m not specifically sure which or who’s, respectively.
Take a look at a dollar bill. Yeah, I know you’ve done this before. But think about how more often than not, by far in fact, people simple see the dollar bill, the images and symbols, without being conscious of what they see, again and again, day in, day out. Anything our nervous systems percieve, in any form of signal, becomes integrated in some way to the nervous system itself.
All I’m saying is, wouldn’t it be nice if our money looked less cryptic, or if the faces of the people on the money weren’t all slave owners and freemasons? What if the twenty was changed to a portrait of kermit the frog? Wouldn’t that be nicer than Andrew Jackson? Didn’t he kill a ton of Seminole indians? Kermit wasn’t even real. Never caused any harm to anyone. Plus, he’s green, so he’d be perfect. I’m kidding, but seriously, our minds are the battlefield, you have got to remember that.
Its time for us to wake up and face our subconscious, collectively. We’ve been played like guitar strings for a long time, and there’s a lot of crap in the attic by now. It is time to dig up those bones and take a good hard look at them, because they are ours.
The honest book of truth isn’t dead yet. It was sleeping. Wake the fuck up!
“It is advantageous to experience the collective flow. There is further advantage in correct persistence.”
“Rely upon the inner strength while allowing the forces in your current situation to fully act upon you.”
“You will not lose your perspective or jeopardize your principles in this empathetic voyage. Instead you gain a valuable Insight into something that may be, in fact, controlling your life. This Insight is a great advantage. You will know the right words to utter, the necessary yet minimal action to take, the proper attitude to adopt in order to shape events.”
“Generally, it is an excellent time for establishing meaningful rapport with those around you and using the energies thus exchanged for achieving significant deeds.”
“It is a natural accord with the cosmos that is enhanced at this time.”
So, as I sort-of brought to our collective attention the other day, and as we knew before, things are pretty insane. Also of note is the fact that the clocks are being changed FOUR weeks earlier than usual this year. I think that’s quite a leap, huh? Proof that our calendar (interestingly enough known as the Gregorian) is pretty much out of synch with time. But you could come to that conclusion by paying attention simply to the weather.
Anyway, I think this all falls into the 2012 realm. Things are speeding up, and the closer we get to the center of the spiral, or the end of time, or whatever, the more history seems to recapitulate itself… Look at our current political situation, and how it eerily mirrors MANY periods in history. They say history repeats, right? Well, I think that’s right-on, more literally than I was brought up to perceive.
I’ve been mulling all this over in my head, trying to figure out my connection to it all. I think much of what’s happening is so grand in scale that we can’t really concern ourselves with it without getting frustrated. Instead, it might be better to focus on yourself and that which is immediately surrounding you. I often feel very negative impulses when I come up against the “big stuff”, i.e. anything related to Bush and Co., the environment, or whatever else. When I think about the little picture, so to speak, I am moved to propagate optimism and positivity.
I think we should focus on energy, and raising energy levels inside ourselves and around us. This can be accomplished by having good intentions and treating yourself and others well. Write nice notes to people, or whatever comes naturally, just do it. Don’t expect anything in return. Just know that you are raising the energy frequency in the field surrounding you.
2012 is coming, its less than six years away. The best thing we can do to prepare is raise our energy levels and frequencies. We are lucky enough to have found each other, and I don’t think it’s any coincidence.
We must be pillars.
Remember when we linked arms in my barren living room in Tivoli? Remember when the lightning struck?
