Acting as Conditioned

Everyone is conditioned to act in certain ways and justify it, yet things are said like I wish I hadn’t or I shouldn’t have done that. Unless this is realized, you will continue to act and justify the way you have been conditioned to act…

If a person is conditioned to act in a certain way, it shouldn’t be a surprise when they act that way. When the conditioning is to love that’ll be how they act, but no one has the right to judge or label any behavior as wrong because most likely the person is just doing what their conditioning tells them what to do; as we all do. People who judge others do the same things as the ones they’re judging, but it is only looked at as wrong because that’s the way they’re justifying their own behavior. How much validity can we truly put in someone who is just as conditioned as the person they are judging? The only difference in people is the way they’re conditioned, this makes everyone justify why different things are used, but we all succumb to our Conditioned Mind as no one I’ve come across walks on water.

We do what we do because it’s what we have learned, but understand that others do what they do because it’s what they have learned. When the mind settles down enough this will be understood. If you’re always listening to what you’re conditioning tells you, it’s because your mind doesn’t have the discipline to be still, and if you can’t be still, you will always succumb to whatever conditioning you have in place. Sitting in quiet doesn’t magically settle the mind. What the sitting does is it allows you to become more aware of just how unsettled your mind is. The meditative state of sitting is a discipline; living life daily is where the results show up. If the mind is quiet for an hour of sitting, but noisy throughout the day, there’s not much benefit to that. Stillness has to be your forte if we are to truly understand your life. This is not an understanding of life itself, it’s you understanding you. So sit when it’s time sit. Work when it’s time to work, but bring in the stillness of sitting to work, or whatever it is that you’re doing. Stillness has to come first for there to be love because without it the Conditioned Mind rules, and although the results of our behavior may be different depending of our conditioning, we all listen to the same self serving puppeteer…

Poems

Hamlet

Hamlet

Hamlet came a calling
He didn't say a lot
He was tired and cold and hungry
We gave him honey
From a pot

We breathed warm air upon him
In a kind and caring way
But it really didn't help a lot
Poor Hamlet passed away

He hadn't lost his colour
Still perfect as a pearl
We wrapped him in an autumn leaf
That had just begun to curl

We placed him in the branches
Of a tree that fateful day
In it's arms a frozen moment
Of when poor Hamlet passed away

So sad he didn't make it
But glad a chance to share
In a kindly woven moment
A moment love laid bare

Fragile 'did' for Hamlet
How fragile you and me
Everything is fragile
Beware fragility!

How beautiful was Hamlet
That humble....Bumble.... Bee


The Chalk Stream Lament

Someone broke into my heart where I rise beneath the Downs
And stole my chalk stream water and sold me to the towns
I don't know what you called me I don't think I had a name
Call me 'crystal clear spring water' I was gifted by the rain

My shining waters sounded out
With every rise and fall
In August I would whisper
In January call
Now I move quite slowly
Will I die is this my death?
I don't want to join the silent
I want to live not fight for breath

I want my life blood back again
To leap and turn and run
Sing out loud and sparkle
Flood meadows and feel the sun
Let me spill into the river
Ride the tides that come and go
Let me run my course forever
It's the only thing I know

I want those who lived within me
And those who've passed this way
And all who lived beside me
To come home, home to stay
Here with me when I was born
Long before you came
By my plunder you may reach the stars
But you'll whither just the same

So should I die don't mourn my loss
I'm home, I'm in the rain
And all in all rain has to fall
Somewhere I'll rise again.
