This wall, this vast and seemingly insurmountable obstacle keeping us isolated and naked in the dark known as fear, can be simply defined as the absence of unconditional love and the in ability to accept our unity of creative essence known as selflessness.
As long as there has been darkness there has been fear. Man has looked into the darkness with awe and a careful foreboding. Over the vast expanse of time we look for light to fill the dark places for we know only light extinguishes shadow. For shadow to exist there must be something to block the light. By illuminating the darkness with light, or in other words by educating the uninformed with truth you destroy the idea of fear.
Fear of loss, fear of rejection, fear of… what ever you may fear, it is simply an expression of that incomprehensible aspect of ourselves. The part we refuse to accept. It is that part of us that we fear… it is our own divinity. We are afraid to think of ourselves as divine and place divinity on something outside of us and call it God. We place our fear of ourselves on a pedestal and worship it from afar, instead of accepting it as being part of being.
Instead we feed this fear and nurture it. We embody all of our disdain for this world and disburden ourselves of all the suffering by placing its creation on a deity so we do not have to face the fact that we create our own life, that we create our own suffering… and above all we create our own joy.
It is easier to place blame outside instead of accepting responsibility. So… from time to time we use concepts like …it’s the lords will or …the devil made me do it to explain away responsibility and lay it upon some outside source and say we are not in control. As if to say it’s not your fault the world is the way it is, when in fact… the world is the way it is because you have created it exactly how you and I along with it intended it to be in the first place.
This is all part of the divine matrix of how the universe is tied together… it is bound to itself. It is the binding between every molecule of the air we breathe, and it is continually changing form and giving us life. I say us because it is beyond the realization of you and I… us refers to it as well; for with out this us, we would not be here at all. We, through us created this us out of it… and within it there is no true singular me... for I am not only a part of it… I am it.
Indoctrination into a world where we as children are taught that all are born of sin; that we are born evil and must be saved… creates negative self-image and instills a rebellious behavior pattern. This can be seen if you take a discerning look at the results of centuries of these indoctrinations across a wide breath of the monotheistic cultures. You can see how they have impacted every facet of society.
Teaching children we are free of sin and are a part of the world in which we live and responsible for its maintenance… it stands to reason would instill a positive light upon growing up and in the long term create more peaceful behavior patterns among adults.
Raising children to believe they have a purpose to serve and enrich the world around them with their own inner light will inevitably change the shape of things to come. The process of awakening and shaping the future they and their children will create for themselves, in turn ushers in our own further and eternal spiritual journey. Instead of creating a world where there is struggle and strife based on fear and intolerance, embrace the change and the differences and take heed of the dark history of our species… look to the light and extinguish the shadow. There is nothing to fear.
This type of behavioral change would instill a sense of purpose in our lives. In the long term, changing our perspective from one in which we are doomed unless we follow some inane doctrine; to one where we as individuals are empowered by the idea that we can and do create the world around us, will change our society from within. This freeing of self and the furthered unburdening of our children of fear is for certain our own release from this self induced purgatory in which we dwell. It is a legacy we as a culture must instill in order for us as a society to do what we have been trying to do for centuries… to finally grow up, to become adults, and to mature as a society.
It is time to step back from the world for a moment and say to the universal it…
Thank you for my life.
Grand steps have been taken recently and many are beginning to see the changes around us taking shape. Modern day Prophets like Eckhart Tolle, Dr. Wayne Dyer, and Neale Donald Walsh are but a few of the visionaries awake in today’s wilderness of woe… There are many lone voices in a chorus of people crying out for change and for peace.
I am One…
