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.

Her LifeLong Mate Like To Boast,
Family’s First God Rehearsed.

When Bottle Caps In The Rain
Was The Only Pain.

With God’s Crew.

When They Dance


I Am A Tree If I Want To Be.

Standing Tall Or Not At All.

Turning Green To Make A Scene

Or Just As Red With Things Unsaid.

An Ants Retreat. A Worm’s Warm Bed. A Bird’s Delight

With Birth In Sight.

An Owl’s Call When Night Befalls,

Or On A Branch Where Music Pranced.

Trees Are Magic When They Dance.

Bleeding Scars


The Crusty Fog Of Decadence Had A Plan.

Augustus Had One Too.

Spuriously Fragile, Foolishly Intoxicated

Ego’s Contrivance Rushed In On Waves Of Glut.

While Tongue Lashing Got The Partisans Flu

From Bleeding Scars Fertilizing The Zoo.

Confounding Petulance Compliments Of Orange-Filled Poo.

 Void Of Equal Measures, Red, White, And Blue Sat In Catabolic Hysteria

While The Crusty Fog Of Decadence Taught The Scars

 A Thing Or Two.
