The Value of Awareness

Many have a belief that God is love, but if this is truly investigated it may be revealed that although God may need the story of love to exist, love doesn’t need the story of God to exist…

Awareness is of value because it helps you overcome your selfish nature. This is what I discovered was blocking the love of my heart from being the operating energy of my life. I don’t know how it was for anyone else, but this is what was revealed to me. Why it was this way I don’t really know, but I do know most of my life was selfishly lived trying to grasp pleasure at all cost to satisfy a self that didn’t exist in the way it was perceived. The only awareness there was in my life was how to get more things to provide pleasure so this misunderstood self could be satisfied. It wasn’t that the self didn’t exist, existence just wasn’t what I was conditioned to believe it was. It’s one of the reasons I don’t attach to beliefs today because I see them only as a story. Many have a belief that God is love, but if this is truly investigated it may be revealed that God needs the story of love to exist, but love doesn’t need the story of God to exist. Check it for yourself and see this truth.

Being aware of what’s actually happening now minimizes the stories that are needed to make life the way you think it should be. Awareness stops the story of the way you think something should be and allows the freedom of the way it is which becomes the view of the way it should be. After all wanting the present moment different than what it is is where all discontent arises from. When you’re simply aware of what arises as it arises there isn’t a need for a story and your selfish nature doesn’t come into play as the love of your heart naturally becomes the operating energy of your life…

It's Your Life

It’s your life and as easy as it may be to follow someone else’s way, if they didn’t live the life that you’re leading their tools just may not be the tools for living the life you live…

There are many people that came before us who left pointers to follow a way that they used to bring peace into their life. Follow Jesus, Buddha or some others, but the thing to ask yourself is did they live the kind of life that you live and if not although their teachings may have value, unless they can be applied to the life you live, their significance may not apply. This isn’t to down play anyone’s path, but I’m a parent, a husband, I have a thirty year same job career. I own a home which requires constant maintenance amongst all the other responsibilities that come along with this kind of life. I don’t know of many that came before me that led this exact kind of life so although I studied many spiritual teachings (not followed) I’m carving my life with tools that apply to the way my life is, leaking roofs, car accidents, and all.

What happens when you blindly follow someone is you remain blind to the experiences in your own life which is what allows you to learn and grow. It’s very nice to say I’ll just let it go, but unless this is truly understood when the boiler stops working in the middle of the winter or the AC is blowing hot air when it’s 95 degrees outside, let’s see if who you are following went through that and how easy it is to let it go, especially when your family is involved. Like I said this isn’t to down play anyone’s path or not to utilize the tools that others left behind, but carve a way that’s practical to your life and since everyone’s life is different and a person can only share the tools as they apply to their life, stop following anyone and start using the tools that are practical and beneficial to you, simply because it’s your life…

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.
