I'm Voting In This Day

I’m Voting In This Day,

And I’m Voting For Self-Love.

My Inner Self-Love.

I’m Casting My Vote For Connection.

My Non-Physical Connection.

The Connection I Know Intuitively.

Fabricated Truths Begin To Vanish,

In The Innate Love Of Self.

A Sticky Atmosphere Of Doubt

“Government is a tool that helps bring out the best in people.”

Confucius, the Chinese moral and political sage, wrote those words more than 2,000 years ago. He also said people should have respect for government, and they should rely on the governmental processes for leadership.

When people lose faith in government, they lose faith in themselves, and a state of confusion takes over. That state manifests in different ways. Rather than ruling by virtue, governments become bogged down by conflicting opinions about justice, equality, and moral behavior.

A government that has lost the faith of the people is a tumultuous melting pot of radical as well as racist judgments and civil insolence. Right becomes a distorted vision of disjointed opinions and a rebellious epiphany of religious servitude.

Faith overflows with doubts when a government displays the moral arrogance to develop its own course without the support of its people. A chaotic sense of confusion invades the egos of loyal individuals. That mental anguish manifests in irrational behavior that covers the government in a sticky atmosphere of doubt.

A government in doubt protects itself with perceived projections that complicate the correction. The correction is the demise of the untruthful aspects of government. And the birth of a more meaningful order that embraces the people and the morality of the times.

Morality is an ever-changing judgment. The clashing moralities of candidates for a government position project the character and the chaos that exists in the mass consciousness. We are at the doorstep of a deposition where old government figureheads begin to drown in untruths, and that awakening acts as an objective catalyst for a monumental expansion of mental manifestations.

Our mental enzymes will remember and implement the true meaning of the words justice, equality, and moral behavior when we realize we are the government. This election is the first step in that mental process.

Blind Display Of Awareness

Connected Brushes Of Energy

Paint A Picture Of Reality.

Each Brush Mixes Its Own Reality

With Thought-Filled Deep-Rooted Strokes.

A Bubbling Brew Of Color And Race

Rise To The Surface Yearning To Be Whole

Within The Whole That Presents Itself

To Itself In A Blind Display

Of Awareness.

The Wind Grabs Me


The Wind Grabs Me. 
I Rest On A Breeze Of Peace 
Moving With Its Gentle Motion
 I’m Dressed In My Suit Of Fall
 Ready To Meet My Maker 
And Return To The Oneness Of Me
 Being A Leaf 
 On An Ever-Expanding
 Tree Of Life.

Courageous Change


Courage is a kind of salvation.
Plato


Twenty-four hundred years ago, Plato was the Greek philosopher who let people know there was another dimension of consciousness to experience when they focused on it. Plato, one of Socrates’ favorite students, started the Platonist school of thought. Aristotle, as well as Plotinus, followed the teachings of Socrates and Plato. St. Augustine, the early Christian theologian and one of the founders of Christianity, was an avid fan of Plotinus and Plato’s school of thought.


Plato’s teachings were part of Christianity’s doctrine, albeit, will a few tweaks. Plato’s thoughts got meshed together with Stoicism and the notion that virtue is the only good, as well as the sin story and Jesus being a God.


Plato knew fear is the threshold to courageous change. He knew people had to face challenges to move to their next level of awareness. Fear and pain frequently exist in the contrast we experience from unforeseen wake-up calls. It’s up to us to cross the threshold of pain and fear and find our sense of self-direction and self-structure.

    

 COVID-19 is this reality’s wake up call. The chaos created by the energy within the virus shines a light on how separated we feel in this mass reality. We believe the coronavirus is an enemy. But the virus is more awareness-shaker than phantom villain.


The energy we loath in COVID-19 is the psychological stimulus we need to expand our awareness of how connected we are. The coronavirus doesn’t discriminate in terms of race, color, or creed. Every human is this phantom’s unwelcoming host.


The government and the religious community are in the spotlight now that this invisible value-fulfillment seeker proves all humans are equal in its cell-eating eyes. This coronavirus will change how humans interact with each other, and it will change what Plato called “The Noble Lie.”

Plato’s Noble Lie became part of the human belief system more than 24 centuries ago. Plato said his ancestors believed God fills everyone’s soul with gold, silver, and iron. But the workers, farmers, and the poor don’t have as much of those precious elements in their God-given DNA.


The power-driven ancients who believe they had more God-given gold, silver, and iron in their DNA, set up governments, religions, and societies that taught and practiced the Noble Lie to the people who thought they had to believe it.


Governments and religions evolved through the years using the Nobel Lie in a form that made sense to people who didn’t understand their ability to self-structure, and self-direct the course of their physical lives.


Fear is the reaction we experience when we believe the current versions of the Nobel Lie. The current Nobel Lie we experience tends to restrict the four basic Laws of the Universe: Value Fulfillment, Energy Transformation, Spontaneity, and Creation. 


Every form of consciousness on every planet adheres to those laws. When governments and religions try to control people with edicts and doctrines that violate those laws, we manifest another form of physical energy in our individual and mass reality. And that energy pushes a human reset button.



Albert Einstein said everything we see and don’t see is a form of energy. When our thoughts vibrate on a specific frequency, we experience the energy that vibrates on that frequency. Fearful thoughts produce a reality filled with beliefs that violate basic universal laws.


As the consciousness of Earth reconfigures itself and changes its frequency, we change our energy frequency along with it. The people who choose not to change may disengage from this reality in order to experience another reality more suited to their personal value fulfillment goals. And when they do, they give part of their energy to the quest to bring humans together, knowing fear is the doorway to courageous change.
