a prayer for the path

26 06 2009

(I’m no longer afraid of the word “God”, so I will use that from now on, instead of “Infinite Oneness”, although they are the same. “Energy” is another word that means the same).

Why am I writing so much about this Ego / God thing? Because the belief in the Ego is the source of all frustration. And the truth about it is that it doesn’t even exist! The Ego’s central belief is that the Ego made you. Think about this for a minute: Did you create yourself? How were you created? You may trace yourself back to your parents, to their parents, to the big bang, but then you gotta ask, how was the big bang created? There IS a force beyond this world that created this world, and is forever doing so. Believing this, one cannot believe in the Ego, for the Ego is the assertion that IT is the creator, not God. The Ego can make temporary, capricious beliefs we can be confused by, but God creates endless, changeless love.

The Ego is not God, for all aspects of the Ego are directly opposed to God. The Ego would have you believe conflict, fear, guilt and suffering are all possible, and sometimes even needed. The Ego is the rejection of the love that is God; rejecting God’s love, it can only make fear. God’s creation was a voluntary act of goodwill (god’swill); thus, everything resulting from God’s creation is necessarily good. So why all the stress? Because we believe in something unreal: the Ego.

God has 2 wills, an Active Will (i.e. let there be light) and a Permissive Will (i.e. let those huwans believe in false gods). The Ego, rejecting God, is a false God, an idol. God is eternal Love and Joy. The Ego is the opposite: ephemeral fear. But God did not make the Ego, huwans did. The Ego is merely a belief of our mind. God, on the other hand, is reality. Once we decide which we believe in, our life follows according to the principles of the entity we choose.

I am writing so much on this topic because this is the only distinction one must make: When am I following the Ego’s thought system, and when am I following God’s? Following the Ego means rejection and competition. Following God means sharing unlimited love/possibilities/everything.

We’ve been trained very well to follow the Ego. Turning to God requires vigilance. Here is a prayer/poem/mantra/aid to exercise mental vigilance in following God:

God flows through me.
I love impeccably.
I create healing with mutual respect.
I appreciate all that is God.
I accept the light: Awake.
I accept harmony: Awake.
I only accept God.
God is my motivation.
God is my inspiration.
God sustains me.
God is my goal.
In God,
I trust.
And so,
We be.





The Choice

11 06 2009

(continuation of last 2 posts) (this and the last post, Why Unify?, have been greatly inspired by A Course in Miracles, from the Foundation of Inner Peace)

choice

The Spirit (Infinite Oneness), which is infinitely perfect, manifests in the mind, which manifests in the body. The mind can believe it and the body are in direct line with Infinite Oneness, or are separated through the path of the Ego.

The choice is a choice the mind must make: either accept the harmless love that is Infinite Oneness, or accept the fear and pain and guilt of an incomplete mental creation, the Ego. Why is the Ego incomplete? Because it is only itself. Infinite Oneness, however, is everything and everything else. Infinite Oneness cannot be harmed. It is infinitely perfect and infinitely complete.

The mind can make mental projections based on exclusion, or oneness expansions based on inclusion. Infinite Oneness, or self isolation.

I urge you not to make a deal, not to make fantasy, not to make anyone lose so another can gain;
not to fight or compete, make guilt or shame,
not to profit or to lose, make jealousy or blame.

Just make love. (which means Just realize love, which directly implies Just share love).

Bobby Dylan sang, “When you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose.” When you remember you are Infinite Oneness, you also have nothing to lose. Infinite Oneness is inexhaustible. And the more you share it, the more it increases.

Increase the peace, one.





Why Unify?

9 06 2009

(continuation of the last post)

A subjective self and an objective reality necessitates the subjective self to perceive the objective reality. Thus, the self is an observer, or at best, a passive participant.

Once the self is realized as part of Infinite Oneness, there is no objective reality, or a subjective self; there is only reality, which is Infinite Oneness. This necessitates the so-called “self” (which is now understood as inseparable from reality) to create reality. (Of course, the self did not create itself. Infinite Oneness created the self. Why? Infinite Oneness knows, the writer of this blog does not.) The self is no longer slave to an external entity, that of an “objective reality”; rather, the self, being created by Infinite Oneness, can align itself with Infinite Oneness and create the Will of Infinite Oneness. But the question remains: Why would any one want to DO that?!

Let’s use the measurement of a trees’ fruit to judge the tree.

Infinite Oneness’ domain is the Here and Now. The Present. This domain, like Infinite Oneness, is pure love, light and peace. Take a moment of silence, a break from the blog, and realize yourself as equal to reality. You are, in fact, reality.

How did that fruit feel?

On the other hand, the Ego’s domain is fantasy. Mental Masturbation. Next time you do something bad to yourself (i.e. trip while walking, cut finger while chopping vegetables, &c.), immediately recall what you were thinking about when the “bad” thing happened. I’ll wager your mind was NOT on the Here and Now, and whatever the task at hand was, but in a fantasy. Maybe memory, maybe dream, but something made up by the Ego, NOT by Infinite Oneness. (The Ego, a concept based on the belief of separation, is inherently oposed to Infinite Oneness.)

Thinking outside of the Here and Now, the fruit is separate from the Here and Now, separate from Infinite Oneness. The source of separation is fear, the opposite of love, and the cause of all negative emotions, pain and dis-ease.

Unity is love. pure and simple. It has nothing to do with wall street, washington, darfur, your neighbors, the arcade in the mall, or palestine. It has everything to do with YOU, because you are Infinite Oneness. Realize this, and the rest will gently glide into comfort.





Unify. The. Forces.

Ego?
We go
waaaaaaaaaaay back.

But God,
God,
Shit, we be like, we be like twins or some shit.

These are some thoughts inspired by the Sophist-Philosophic Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (which is more like Tao and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, but Zen seems to be the mood most capable of aligning with the Tao). Education ought not to be a reiteration, but a continuation. From this book, here’s some flowing learning I am learning, learned and still flowing…

SO!

(From here on out, I will refer to that FORCE or BEING named God / Jah / Allah / Chi / Buddha / Nirvana / Sri Krishna / The Great Mystery, ETC. as the Infinite Oneness) (interesting note: FORCE implies action, while BEING implies non-action, and both refer to the same Infinite Oneness. Infinite Oneness, however, is beyond action and non-action and verbs or nouns… it is INFINITE ONENESS, and cannot be understood or explained) (I’d be interested if this post aligns with polytheistic thought, of which I know very little).

Now, we must understand: 1. Thoughts are a division in Infinite Oneness. 2. Language is an expression of thought.

What I want to stress is that language enables us to discuss divisions of Infinite Oneness. Let’s examine some such divisions:

The PAST is its own entity.
The FUTURE is its own entity.
CHAIR is its own entity.
MOUNTAIN is its own entity.
CANADA is its own entity.
ME is its own entity.
YOU is its own entity.
(insert noun, Proper or common) is its own entity.
INFINITE ONENESS is its own entity.
And because Infinite Oneness is too wordy, some just call it God, and thus, God is its own entity, seperate from all other entities.

This is all interesting, but the most important distinction to this exposition is the following:
a SUBJECTIVE SELF is its own entity, and an OBJEECTIVE REALITY is its own entity.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Language and Thought Inc., a division of The Infinite Oneness Corporation, proudly presents: EGO! The latest in seperation technology. Now you, YES YOU are hereby seperate from EVERYTHING ELSE! Congratulations! How does that make you feel?

Let’s try an experiment: Imagine you are in a very old tribe. There are many people in the tribe, and everyone communicates, but the language has no words describing a “subjective self” or an “objective reality”. There is no term for “mind” and no term for “truth” (and therefor no term for “false”). There is no words for, and thus no concept of, Ego. EVERY THING is understood as part of the Infinite Oneness. It doesn’t need to be explained, it just is. ALL of it is.

Because “our minds” have been so well trained to think subjectively, we can just as easily say, rather than Infinite Oness, EVERY THING is part of the Infinite Self. ya dig? Because the “self” is part of the Infinte Oneness. In your old tribe where you spoke a language different than English, there was no division between self and anything else.

Oneness, with all, is the absence of the Ego; the essence of BEING; FORCE. Stop the internal dialogue (as Yaqui shaman Don Juan says) and experience Infinite Oneness.

No thing is separate. All are Infinite Oneness.





hacky-sack the bucket

4 06 2009

the bucket is a battle and the battle can’t be won
because the day don’t fight the night and the moon don’t fight the sun.
the Beatles best the better-thans and before beauty breathes,
the barometer begets the tests but breaks in gentle breeze.

besides the boob-toob, turned off cause it’s rude, jude, a beach moves delicate, naturally… or is it the waves that move?

time shifts, mind splits, duality becomes triangularity, quadruple pentagrouple hexa hepta octa MON,
the singularity, spoken of as plurality, discuss the multiplicity of dust, the words mess to mush,
the pull makes a push, vis versa of course a difference is no different,

check the latest shipment of imaginarey figments,
the kaleidoscope made one moment

HOPE!
