I shall post one here,
What if awareness was everywhere?
And in it we have a share?
And the nature of our neuron cells,
Gives us perception of ourselves?
What if the things we think,
That spur from what we believe,
Are not part of the awareness,
But grow from it like trees?
Would some of them grow wonderful fruit,
And blossoms with aromatic hue,...
But some lay rot to the soil of being,
And poison the meadow of our feeling?
What if awareness was everywhere,
And the meadow had no fence,
We'd all grow trees in our little corners,
And they mingle and grow dense.
For the sake of our bounty,
And beauty and flow,
I will watch for the types of trees,
I begin to grow.
Maybe for yourself,
If not for your love,
Perhaps you could look inside your feeling,
And do a little weeding,
Of your own.
So that is that, perhaps it makes sense to you, perhaps not. Never the less, I shall continue. So, I have realised that the things we believe about ourselves are often our gateways to being deceived. If I may expand on this to gain clarity, it is because we feel good about ourselves because of certain qualities we endow. These qualities can be good, and there is nothing inherently wrong with them as they are. However, because we judge ourselves and conditionally value ourselves according to certain virtues and morals, they can become our enemy. When a rational argument shows that compassion is required, do we show it? What if you are being lied to? Can you tell the difference or is your desire to fulfill the role of a compassionate person so strong that you don't check? What I have learned for myself recently is that the things I hold close as my virtues are ripe for the pickings and allow me to be deceived. I am beginning to embody the understanding that I am always myself and always loved and valued as priceless by myself, no matter how I act in the day to day world. I know my truths and am now much more aware of my own direction which allows me to evaluate things from a place of deeper awareness and separate from my thoughts. This is not complete and the work is constant and eternal. I am not claiming to have become enlightened. I am only showing you my journey and offering it as inspiration to those that is may seem fitting.
The flipped side of the coin is our weaknesses can become our strengths. The things that we dislike or the things that get in the way, they are birthday presents we have not yet opened. Once we accept our flaws and begin to love them as part of ourselves, we unwrap the gifts and learn how to use them for our own truth. We no longer fall over them, but hold on to them and they empower us. Whether it be a sense of adventure, fearlessness, childishness, daydreaming, any thing that has been used to demean you in the past, can become a blessing. When used with love.
For today, that is all I have to say.
