I gotta send my dad his 60th birthday car.

Isn’t one enough?

 

What are you doing about your kleptomania?

I take stuff for it.

 

Are you surprised you failed your driving test?

Yeah, but my instructor said I should have seen the signs.

Trump & Death

Death

If we stay with the movie projector metaphor from last post, death is an illusion, too. Part of the way we express our fear of losing our selves to our Self. Realizing our true nature as pure energy, as butterflies dreaming we are people, can awaken us from the nightmare of death to the reality of endless life. No dogma or rituals are necessary to accomplish this. Just understanding, desire and appreciation. We believe in death because we see it as an escape from the mess we’ve made. But if we accept our oneness and join with our Self, we can see that death as part of the duality of the ego’s illusion of life on earth. 

But if all is oneness and there is no duality, no light and dark, death and life, then there is only life and the peace that passeth understanding here and now. Death is not a natural law and has nothing to do with the benign eternal energy we call ‘God’. Death cannot be escape, because the problem isn’t in living, it’s believing the nightmare is living. In the instants we return to our minds and choose a different set of beliefs we are truly alive and free as air. We are spirit and spirit neither lives nor dies, it’s not born. Spirit is life; it just is.

Anger and Projection

I choose anger because I’m afraid of peace, for within the peace from which everything is created, the self I think I am is meaningless.  In that deep neutral peace, differences don’t exist, all is one, so there is no ‘me’. Anger is a smoke screen concealing the true conflict between myself and mySelf – my ego self and my God self. Genuine peace comes when I choose the part of my mind that does compassion, mountains, forests, clean air and water. All conflict arose when I chose to leave that part of my mind. When I return to it, only peace remains.

This suggests that ‘fixing’ things in the world isn’t the most effective way to go. It says that if I return to my mind and choose again, problems here will disappear. The movies are a good metaphor for this. When the picture’s out of focus on the screen, I don’t go up to the screen to fix it, I call the projection booth. So with my experience, the screen. If I want to have a different experience, I have go to the mind, the projection booth. The brain maybe a camera, but the mind is a projector.

The Wisdom of Oneness

One power, one energy in, through and as all that is. Me, you, Trump. What uses this power, shapes and guides it? We do. Scary thought. Very scary. Our beliefs, imaginings and creativity shape it. No! Can’t be! The world was here before me and will be here after I die. I was born into it. Right? That’s what we think because we fear our power. Don’t want to accept responsibility for it. What we’ve done with it is too terrible – war, concentration camps, poverty, murder. Wonderful things too – sunrise and sunset, forests, oceans, poetry and compassion. 

It’s up to us. The one power is neutral, plastic and responsive to our feelings, beliefs and thoughts. We’re responsible. Scary but true. Projection makes perception. The power is like jello and takes the shape of our mental/emotional molds, our mental equivalents. We are the power we call ‘God’. We’ve denied it. Projected it out onto a superhuman being. But it’s still us. We need to believe in something greater than ourselves. OK. Fine. 

So let’s take the power and responsibility back and give it over to our Selves, the part of us that does compassion, mountains, forests, clean air and water. The part that is a paradox, that is nothing, invisible and creates out of itself. The part that is always serene, still and peaceful in the midst of the frantic action of life. The part who’s nurturing peace and renewal is always there deep within our experience.

Being Mindful of Oneness

E = mc squared – matter can be neither created nor destroyed. One energy in, through and as all that is. Me, you, Trump. Compassion, kindness, and forgiveness reveal that truth. They say I am not separate from you. How I think about you reflects how I think about me. In the beginning and at the end and with the basic needs in between we are all the same. In the ego’s world, for a brief time we are separate. But even here, we can reveal our oneness. Compassion, kindness, and forgiveness remind us of the oneness that is already here, covered by layers of  the ego’s, division, hatred and judgment.

Inspired thought and feeling precede inspired living.

If you want new clothes, you’ve got to throw some old ones away to make room for the new ones. Makes sense, right? It’s true of ideas, feelings and reasons too. To have a new year or new life we’ve got to let go of feelings and ideas that no longer fit us. Inspired thought and feeling precede inspired living.

We as egos may not know what’s next, but there’s something within us that does. Turn completely from the situation – empty your closet – give the situation over to the power within and go from there. Inspired thought and feeling precede inspired living. Surrender the mean small self to the greater Self. 

What have you got to lose? The situation isn’t working as it is, right? So try something else. Try spiritual technology – forgiveness, meditation, prayer, mindfulness, stillness. Go to the next level. Get your bloated nothingness out of the way of the divine circuits. Inspired thought and feeling precede inspired living.

Happy New Year – No More Resolutions – Ever!

Flow, not force.

What’s in your heart and gut to do?

Don’t should on yourself.

It’s not what you should do or ought to do.

It’s what you’ve just got to do, what makes your blood rush, sends thrills though you.

Get out of your head and into your soul.

No more waiting! Now, today, begin.

A Poem by Me

A New Default

by Steve Liebowitz  7/2/16

Happy for no reason.

A ray of sunshine

breaking through heavy

gray clouds of

business as usual.

Like Dorothy going from

Kansas to Oz.

Could sunshine be 

business as usual?

Sure!

But I don’t really believe it.

Black and white clouds of struggle, 

strife, lack and limitation

are business as usual.

Sure moments,

many moments, of sunshine and technicolor.

But clouds, 

not sunshine, 

are my default.

I wait for the sun to break thru.

Must I?

What about mindfulness?

If, when aware of ‘business as usual’, 

I think ‘sunshine’,

won’t sunshine eventually

become my default?

Shadows dance along the coastline

Shadows dance along the coastline

A Political Something to be Mindful About

According to Fast Company Magazine, 38% of corporate CEOs under forty didn’t vote in 2016.

As we slouch to the end of the brief Pax Americana, the flaws of the US Constitution and the American democratic system, always there, are now, thanks to Trump and his Republican enablers, glaringly obvious. Will we have the courage, civility and wisdom to set aside our arrogance and hubris and fix them so perhaps at last the hypocrisy will diminish and the USA will live up to its hype?

Irony and Political Porn

Now media is exploiting the Dem’s 2020 picks. Soon they’ll complain we start campaigning too early. They want it both ways. Perhaps they might try some self control. They say they’re only responding to what people want. Well, people want porn too and you don’t see much of that on the six o’clock so called news. 

What they’re doing is political porn. Porn has a place but not as ‘news’. They’re having it both ways. This whole trend of pandering, speeding things up and going only for the money is debasing the commons – the space we share for discourse – make meaningful discourse difficult. 

Have you noticed, they’re complaining about that too?

Still Forgiving (There’s so much to forgive!)

Of course I need to do it mostly for myself. But what a load of personal responsibility is lifted when I realize that the power I call ‘God’ holds nothing against me or anyone! Forgiveness is a reflection of loving myself enough to move on. It’s always my choice, and choosing to blame anyone for anything is self inflicted suffering. (Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.)

Forgiving doesn’t have to mean I welcome the ‘forgivee’ as a friend. It simply means the cause of my pain, sadness or disappointment is now charge neutral, just another memory. I can now use the energy to move on to something more useful and beneficial.

The Gift

How difficult would it be to choose between the fruits of judgment and forgiveness if they were laid side by side? Which would you choose?  “Who with the love of God upholding him would find the choice between miracles and murder hard to make?” – Course in Miracles.

The way we keep the love of the power we call ‘God’ safe within us is to give it away to all the world. We must share it to have it. To give this gift is how we make it ours. We don’t have less love and forgiveness when we give it away. We have more. It flows naturally from source unless we interfere with it. 

Isn’t it time to stop interfering with it and let it flow thru you?
