If I ran a media outlet and had control of advertising, for one day I would eliminate all other ads and run this one: “Heart Responses Needed! Simply secure some mirror time, look at yourself eye to eye, and speak to your Heart. Who am I? What will I do with my time here? Live your answers.” If we ever needed people to respond to this ad, now would be a good time.
Last night I referred to the cacophony of life around us as white noise, noise that has all the frequencies within the human aural range. When we can’t sort the frequencies, it creates a kind of stupefying effect like putting a hood on a hawk to train it. In the analogy from last night, Ego keeps us from focusing. When we can’t focus or sort, we just move through life only paying attention to what is directly in our path, only what directly please or displeases us. That’s convenient for Ego when we allow it to operate our mind and soul. We can have strong opinions about life, politics, social issues, or anything if it involves us directly. However, when we aren’t operating, consciously, purposefully, through Heart, the big picture will always be left out, only being addressed in vague, general terms.
The problem with that is people end up unhappy, unsatisfied, unfulfilled and they find ways to blame others — sometimes in ways that are intricate, intellectual, and even effective — in order to pass their unhappiness and discontent on to others. “If I can show others they are wrong and I am right, all will be exactly the way I want it.” When I talk to people like that, they never know exactly what they want. They know what everyone else should want. Oh, they’ll try and stutter and stammer, but they can’t nail it down for themselves.
What happens with people like that? Many things, innumerable things. Some that seem good. Nothing in and of itself is good or bad disassociated from thinking, and Ego thinking just doesn’t satisfy in the end. When an individual is unhappy with self, Ego will always try some tactics to get relief. Ego forms can always be identified because it blames and passes on the personal unhappiness and causes hurt, harm, misery, destruction in some way. They will find fault, assign blame, and either slither under the Rock of Worthlessness or maybe jump onto that rock and order, shove, and push people to their way of thinking. Or somewhere in the land of the in-between.
With my Heart as the primary filter, processor, and motive force for my mind and soul, I can respond in ways that are characterized by light and love. I don’t need to prove or defend that; it’s my personal truth. I know that although I love Self, true Self, I am not selfish. I do, however, recognize the selfish game blamers. My Heart allows me to filter and focus on the events that affect souls.
This brings me to manifestations of those who are so fucking miserable with their own lives, even though they aren’t aware of it, that they have to inflict their misery on others. This takes various forms. Such people will tout their actions in a number of masked, disingenuous forms: moral, religious, common good, make a country great again. Whenever these active self-haters wreak havoc on others, they do it by blaming others and convincing and justifying themselves that they are right. The best — religion, country, philosophy. Just the best, better than others. This especially includes the destructive mindset of nationalism.
So, we end up with tragedies. The bombing in Manchester, UK, reminded me of the Boston Marathon bombing and other acts of miserable cowards who refuse to look themselves in the eyes and meet their own Heart. It’s interesting that just this evening I heard that the bomber in Manchester asked his mother to forgive him before he performed his hateful act. You don’t ask for forgiveness if you act from Heart and personal truth, and by personal truth I mean Heart-truth, not Ego. If I had the means, the outlet for voice to encourage those dear people in Manchester, I would tell them they are loved, that those who passed from this physical plane were loved, and that their life energy goes on. We can communicate with them like I do with friends and relatives who have died physically — just talk to them, listen, watch, and they will know.
Another manifestation my Heart has helped me focus on has been the sheer lunacy of giving power to a man like Donald Trump. I haven’t named him, I don’t believe, in any of my articles. I have disagreed with virtually every action he has taken and most words he has spoken. However, when I saw the video from multiple sources, reputable sources, of him pulling back the Prime Minister of Montenegro, I could clearly see the hubris, that he is one of those who, because he does not know his own Heart, climbs on top of the Rock of Worthlessness instead of slithering underneath of it, although rank egotists can shift between either place. Heart is whispering that the Ego-powered self is worthless in terms of living the reason we came here: to create life that allows Spirit to experience its own work in a sensory body. We are part of that, but people like Trump are relatively, if not totally, clueless.
These two things have been on my mind and soul today, as filtered and processed by my Heart. I hope folks like Trump and those deceived by and involved with groups like ISIS will respond to the little ad I had at the top of this article. We need it to happen; we all need to respond. It’s not hard, really.
Questions to consider:
How many times have you asked yourself or simply thought about the following questions?
Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
How do my actions reveal what I really feel and believe?
What would I do with my life if I could do anything?
What is my passion?
Why am I here?
How can I discover answers to any of these questions?
If you have considered any of these questions, I hope that my experiences and writing will give you some guidance. Please read my blog and comment and share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
