The Great Adventure!
What a busy month it’s been! Everyone at the New Agora sends a big thank you to all the folks that came up to us at the many and various shows we attended these last weeks. Thank you for sharing your encouragements, well wishes, and yes, even financial contributions. You would be surprised at how any little bit helps us tremendously, and by helping us I mean helping you with important information and services, and the knowledge based in fact and deed that we are actually standing up for ourselves and each other with our beloved Earth, in the face of tyranny, in the name and action of liberty, truth and abundance, regardless of the possible dangers of seemingly opposing the madness of this era. I say seemingly opposing because it’s not an actual stance of opposition that we are taking as in a fight but rather a natural positioning of energies, as water and oil find their own gravity when put together, so too with a boxed, limited awareness based on fallacy and fear and one open to the mirificent reality in which we are starring!
“If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.”~Malcom X.
So sure there’s a bit of mixing and shaking going on in this tasty vinaigrette we call life. I see it as more of a dance, quite a humorous one to watch and even participate in once seen from a holistic perspective.
As we stood our posts at the health shows many people instinctively picked up the possible ‘threat’ we represented to their states of unconsciousness and either just visibly glazed over as they lumbered past us, or at times even made involuntary gestures and noises, strange cat-calls, outright beastial grunts, mewlings, barkings and heavens only knows, as whatever was driving them kept them corralled yet moving, after a fashion, away from the laughing light of truth. Some actually came up to us and tried to fight, even claiming their righteous right to do so!
“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James
Well, suffice it to say it was entertaining, although at times a little shocking and eventually quite wearing too. Still, what a wild bunch of coconuts people are! Being awash in such wide and wild cross sections of human life offers proof aplenty of something funny and funny-strange occurring with the species. No wonder I’m torn between respecting people regardless of their lunatic choices and the strong desire to wake them up to the feeling those same choices inspire in me. The results were mixed, when we did try to share. Some reacted poorly in my estimation, attacking us in return; some just drooled on by; some seemed genuinely hurt by our hilarity and the attention; some were just indescribable and doubtfully human. Mostly it was that water and oil thing, densities keeping us in a very real sense apart, except when shaken or stirred by either yours truly or their own rabid sense of self.
“Man’s heart away from nature becomes hard.” ~ Standing Bear
Is feeding darkness and fear, ignorance and evil with your very life’s juice really preferable to being free and joyfully creating one’s own happy destiny? I know the deck is stacked and that the game is rigged, but I also know how magnificent we can be and are.
“We tend to disempower ourselves. We tend to believe that we don’t matter. And in the act of taking that idea to ourselves we give everything away to somebody else, to something else.” ~ Terence McKenna
I can grok the whole “my freedoms end where yours begin” libertarian view, but jeez, some folks are really stinking up the joint, what with that alien insistence on generating a visibly cancerous reality, one so turned away from any semblance of natural intelligence and love that it’s become terribly painful to be next to that much ugliness. Yet I’ve been that and been there too.
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” ~LaoTzu
Then the perception, the feeling if you will, perhaps through a glint in the eye, a hidden smile, a realization, a sudden and deeply sensed familiarity, of family, of love really, when hearts meet, then judgements go and forgiveness enters. Hard not to weep. Easy to be kind. Best to be loving and to follow that inspiration.
“I have decided to stick with Love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” ~Matin Luther King
Perhaps I’m a fool. I wouldn’t be surprised really. Without question I’ve done foolish things in my life. Who hasn’t? Some of them turned out to be loads of fun. Some quite the opposite. My main claim to fame is that I’ve been honest with myself throughout the years and because of that I’ve evolved. Simple as that really.
To be perfectly honest right here and right now. I really don’t like just watching the lost, ignorant, shambling masses, so bloody placid and well adjusted to evil and their own enslavement that they don’t even realize that they are basically walking dead: passionless yet obedient, subservient to fear, servile as a rule, denatured, driven insane by selfishness, still unconscious, eyes closed, wrong end open… hurtling backwards to the edge of certain destruction and consumption, miserable and pain filled, yet somehow hoping for the ‘best’.
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true, the other is to refuse to accept what is true.” ~S. Kierkegaard.
Frankly the human race’s domestication, its docility and lack of imagination coupled with its towering and ridiculous sense of self importance and entitlement disgusts me. Knowing from which it springs and to what end it runs does little to alleviate my distaste and revulsion for this feast of folly presented before us all.
And so, in a very real sense of the word, our very being opposes that which is not for us. Truth opposes that which it isn’t by the very nature of its being.
“He who does not oppose evil……commands it to be done.” ~Leonardo da Vinci
We could be gods enjoying our rightful place in the heavens, in the paradise that is this Earth, instead of belly crawling – bottom feeding, instead of being the inverse of the word: dogs, owned and beaten, begging for scraps, ready to do our masters bidding, regardless how heinous, regardless of the cost, and now regardless of knowing better.
“Defeat is a state of mind; no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.”
It is time to stand together, or to continue to be divided, separated and then consumed. It is time to stand in support of truth, truths that free us, and to do so vividly, with alacrity, with style, with sobriety. It is in our power, together, to take charge of our destinies, to allow for the organic release of natural growth so long held back and suppressed, deviated and abused, distracted and experimented on, cruelly manipulated and tortured.
It is time to embody Love and to truly set sail on the seas of self determination and inspiration with imagination filling our Beings with possibility and the endless vistas of Creation. Onwards with the Great Adventure!
