We’re approaching another one of the holidays in the US, this one being Mother’s Day. On Sunday we’re encouraged to give some love to Mom, and even though it’s a contrived and commercial holiday, it can still be sweet. As it happens, this article does touch upon Mother. It was not my intention to post a ‘mother’ writing on this particular weekend but since it ‘just happened’ and I’m kind of glad of the coincidence.
I’m going to begin with something Stuart Wilde said: “You don’t have to apologize for the fact that you decided to take life in a sacred way. You don’t have to apologize for the fact that you’re silently walking from ego to God.” So, no apologies, we will just walk and do whatever keeps us on track.
Always now, always new: we’re the orchestra or we’re the choir, we’re performing and we know instinctively where every other one is going with the next note – no worries, no thinking, just being and enjoying. It’s perfection. The flow, energy, color, sound – life is divinity in the act of eternally creating the new.
I am the particular sound and color of Ida and there is no other like me, you are your sound and your color and there is no other like you. We’re in these miraculous bodies; we listen and hear, we look and see, harmony and rhythm are built in, colors vibrate naturally – this Now performance of breath, life, awareness, consciousness – is feeling so good: realizing… we are the divinity performing creation.
So, if what I said is even just a little bit true to you and me, then why are we slugging along carrying a bag of grief and sadness? Things didn’t turn out the way we thought they might? We can’t control any of the outcomes in ways that we think best? We’re afraid. So why in the world do we worry if we really are Divinity in the Now performing Life?
Well, I guess there’s a history to everything; a lot involved in this, no clarity handed to out, and it isn’t all joy. Conditioning: we are told and shown things over and over again, and these things become real. We believe there is something wrong with us, something lacking that we have to get, something to be ashamed of in the past, something bad going to happen, and we call it stress.
Like so many others, I’ve been familiar with the term ‘judgment day’ since early childhood. The adults gave me warnings and a fear message, and they meant well… it was what they believed. They said that some day God, who knows your every deed and every thought, will decide your fate… and there are some things he might not like, including any disbelieving thoughts. So always be on your toes, edit yourself according to ideas of what is right and wrong, and remember… when you do right He loves and will never leave you, and when you do wrong judgment can happen at any moment!
A belief like that can put a really chilling, restrictive imprint on an innocent mind, and it’s meant to. Innocent doesn’t know anything about editing itself, but life on earth does.
We’re at the end of a very long time period of restriction. For thousands of years we’ve been doing a performance of… billions of different versions of… jail. If we want to know what the Purpose is, I guess we can liberate ourselves and then look at how we did the liberation. But honestly, why ask why – we will be the answer or we are the purpose.
