It’s been a while. There are inevitable challenges when one devotes their life to Truth and the cultivation of Awareness. There are times when I lose sight of the grand vision and really feel like giving up on the rest of the Klan…..So much confusion, noise, mindlessness – bitterness, envy, self-indulgence and nonsense.
After a while – after one pulls their head out of the noise and assumed context…..the rest of the moving world seems to just go on relentlessly with bickering, bullshit and cliched exchanges- over and over and over again. Often times, it appears to be an endless loop of folly……..It’s been this way for as long as mankind has gathered….
Never before – has the world needed sincere Leadership – Light – Liberty and most of all Love…
I myself – can get beyond the realm of frustrated with my/our people…..to the point where it seems like all I do is bitch about the folly and the mindlessness of my kinfolk….This too is an example of my own personal folly….Yet deep within – above all else…..I have GREAT EXPECTATIONS for mankind….
You see – it’s a mere matter of information….We now live in a world – that has opened up the flood gates of information. Where just yesterday there was a trickle – now flows a raging tyrant of incredible information.
Like all things – twin aspects emerge……with great flows of information – comes new challenges, new skill sets….new depressions….new frontiers….new ways to both grow and enslave….
Sadly, our evolutionary enterprise…our brains…..cannot keep up with the technological evolution of the external world……and with that – comes cognitive dissonance, confusion, frustration – and insecurity…..
What happens…..when an individual is bathed in too much information? Well, the system can only entertain a small fraction of it – at any given time….so most folks…..do what is natural to them….they cling to whatever previously developed pathways they have burned into their mindset….Rather than courageously step into the frontier – they retreat into the comfortable certainty of assumed understanding – about how life and the cosmos works…..And sadly….they retreat into the world of reaction and sedation……and even sadder – will leave this world…..unfulfilled…
This journey is NOT about accumulation….and it’s not just about rising kids, retiring and doing it all over again…..There is so much more to all of this, that it breaks my heart that so few get to “see” the rich, brilliant context that lies just beyond their own self-imposed cage…..production….dream…..LIFE.
The great notion that keeps me in the hunt…..is – every second of now – is another opportunity to change it all…..In a flash….the dark can give way to Light…….where there was NOT – now IS…….and with that….Great Expectations.
