Inclusion

The biggest life is the one that includes the most. Not excludes, not builds a wall, nor is manipulated by fear. When we let others in and share our good, our own experience increases with theirs. The more good one does, the more good there is, and the more good one experiences.

Integrity too

Societies have integrity too.

The sentiments in the Declaration of Independence, the words on the Statue of Liberty are aspirational yet represent the integrity of the USA.

Please understand. The behavior of the Trump Administration and its sycophants is out of integrity with America’s most cherished ideals. It’s not just politics or business as usual.

To be out of integrity is to be wounded, sick and in pain.

The wound to our integrity must be treated like any other wound. It must be recognized and treated. We must acknowledge the wound and take steps to return to our ideals. 

We can heal the wound, restore our wholeness and go on to make our ideals real. Not just for ourselves, but for everyone, everywhere.

Behavior can be distinguished from personhood. Those that have been called out can be called in. Those that created the wound can help heal it. It can be no other way; else the seeds of the next wounding have been sown.

Integrity

Wholeness. Unbroken – from the Latin. Doing the right thing in a reliable way for yourself, others and the planet. No harm, no foul to anyone or anything. A sense of inner honest connection to peace, compassion, inclusion and wholeness. As Hamlet said: “To thine own Self be true, and it follows like the night the day, that thou canst be false to anyone.”

Opposing Voices

Let the opposing voices in your head speak. Like an orchestra tuning up to play together, the voices are only finding their part in the larger yet to be played song. We have no chance of  experiencing the fullness of our inner music if we don’t let all the players in our inner orchestra tune.

A Wag and a Smile

by Steve Liebowitz  12/16/15

“Honey!”

I’m engrossed writing. Trying to capture a complex plot twist.

“Honey! Please come here.”

She really does need me, I know.

“In a minute.”

I type a few more words, but it’s not there yet.

I go to her. She’s really happy to see me. Her smile makes the interruption worth while.

Back at it and the dog is at my feet, between my legs, whining and wagging.

“Shit!” But I’m happy to see him. I love to see him wag. His sister, who’s smaller, joins him.

Two dogs wagging. I like it.

“OK!” and they bound off, wagging.

The dogs are happy. My wife’s happy.

A wag and a smile make it all worthwhile.

And the work goes more smoothly.

Misery

I’m aware and grateful. The sun rises and shines on its own, without me having to do anything. So, too, with the birds. They sing without help from me. I’m blessed and everything’s unfolding as it should. Then I stub my toe and the entire world is reduced to the pain in my poor little toe.

If peace comes from experiencing the whole, then misery comes from disconnecting from that and a loss of perspective.

In giving myself over to littleness, to narrowing my focus I become miserable. Misery is allowing a moment of suffering to become everything. After all, there is a body that isn’t stubbed, a world that isn’t stubbed and a spirit that isn’t stubbed. Look to them.

Schma Y’israel

The signature prayer of Judaism – Schma Y’israel – “hear oh Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.”

As a child, I thought it referred to having no idols. It does, but it’s more than that. It’s about oneness itself; that there’s no separation, that God and human beings are one, that the power we call ‘God’ is fully present in everything – rocks, trees, animals – everything, even Trump and his Republican sycophants. It means there is no opposite to God, no evil, no devil. What seems to be evil is the belief in separation itself.

Separation as duality, as paired opposites, as Life and Death, Good and Evil, Light and Dark, permeate the world and our experience here. But if oneness is real, duality has to be an illusion. This means the way we think about the traditional God, ourselves, pain, evil, the entire world and universe – uni – one, is illusory. And can be changed. Right? Can be brought more into line with the peace, joy, harmony, compassion, kindness and all-inclusiveness of our best sense of oneness.

This means we need not feel guilty or ashamed. If we want things to be different – more in line with oneness, we can choose now – this time is all there truly is, to feel, think and behave differently. Guilt, fear and shame only make sense in a world of oneness, as a call to awake from the illusion of separation and claim the peace, joy, harmony, compassion, kindness and all-inclusiveness that is our natural birthright and true identity.

Are You Ready?

For what? For your good. Your good is all around you. But if you’re not willing and ready to receive it, you won’t experience it. No hurdles to jump, no hoops to go through. Only willingness and readiness. Only a shift in consciousness, a new belief system, a new world view. Now. No waiting. Now. Try it. Let go of the past and future and affirm: “My good is all around me. I feel it and I’m ready and willing to accept it now.”

When I’m focused on what’s not working instead of what is working, it helps me to think of my good as rain. If I hold up a glass, I receive that much. If I hold up pot, I get more, etc. How much I receive is up to me. With science and community, I can design, create and operate vast things to collect vast amounts of water….

We seem to be living in a time focusing on what isn’t working instead of what is. Each of our individual consciousnesses is an antidote to this. Being mindful of what we’re thinking, when we catch ourselves holding up only a glass, of thinking of limitation, shame and blame instead of blessing and cooperating, that’s the time to shift and affirm:  

 “My good is all around me. I feel it and I’m ready and willing to accept it now.”
