There is a serious lack of opportunity to meditate in our modern society. Technology is abundant, and one can scarcely glance an eye without finding something shiny or blinking to hijack the onlookers attention.
How rare is shininess in nature? It’s nearly non-existent. In nature, your eyes scan the understated hues that the earth provides, and it will slowly lull your mind to sleep, at which point you can experience the world uninhibited by the ever-wakeful thinking mind.
In modern society, this opportunity is never afforded. Even in a ‘technology-free’ earth-toned room, any indoor scenario soon becomes so static that your thinking mind clicks on, if nothing else but to relieve the boredom.
It’s no wonder people take so many substances just to cope with living in modern society.
The holy grail
Is to find in the mail
That which you sent away
The day you decided
To be led astray.
I believe that there is one central intelligence that we all tap into to a certain extent. But how long has this intelligence been around for? For as long as humans have been around? Or does it pre-date humanity?
I think that this intelligence that our cells are responding to is the same one that communicated with all the cells that existed before the cells that make up our human form existed. It is the same energy source that leads every cell on this planet along the journey of evolution towards higher life.
So then what does it mean for us, as humans, being likely the first life form on this planet that is conscious of this intelligence?
The depths of your soul
And the Gods up above
Can never fully be reached
For they always must remain one step ahead.
We need a reworking of the American dream.
The old model of: make enough money so that you can live comfortably and relax, is long past its useful life. It’s no longer difficult to do this, and it’s leading to an epidemic of people trying to make money in any sleazy or easy way without actually contributing meaningfully to society.
This is a fundamental issue inherent in our capitalist consumerism culture. According to the values of our society, if you have enough money to buy the latest toys, you are successful. The shift needs to happen on the deepest level: what people value needs to change.
But how do we do this?
So the other day I was in the supermarket when I had a crazy realization: that this massive abundance of affordable food has all come into place for the sole purpose to allow me and others like myself to continue the evolution of life towards higher forms.
It’s easy to look at our current world and pick apart everything that’s wrong with it, which is something that I’ve done quite a bit of. But what’s hard is to see our world as a gift that will free our time and energy from worrying about the necessities, and instead focus that energy towards something greater.
What’s even harder than that is to realize how you specifically can help continue the evolution of the human race and the planet towards a higher form of life, and then to follow through with and respect your purpose.
How are you going to use this gift?
Everything has come together
To give you a chance
To realize your true purpose
Straight through to the last dance
