A meditation on synchronicity & the collective dream

Civilized Society

You are convinced that the severity of your actions is an indication of how barbaric or civilized you are. What is civilization really? Is it the degree of conveniences available to the common man? Is it, or rather, isn’t it instead supposed to be, the hallmark of advancement? We label superiority of civilization very specifically. It has to do with how much is physically available to plug in or turn on.

Civilized “superiority” in its true sense, is a much different attribute. There are small groups of “uncivilized” humans in isolated pockets who are made up of enlightened people. We may not understand their individual practices or way of living, yet it springs essentially from respect and honor for life – all life.

They do not subscribe to waste; all parts of the vegetation, animal and human are sacred and equally utilized. If there are no libraries filled with literature that just means the art of verbal communication is utilized instead.

The notion that whole groups of humans must be aware of the actions of every other group of humans stems from ego. It is born out of self importance. What someone has to say about nuclear physics has no effect on the talent of the master fisherman. Each adds value to life as a whole. The relative intelligence of one does not depend on its awareness or knowledge about the mechanics of both.

Time can serve or inhibit us

The background of each of us is irrelevant. It is the foreground that matters to the rest of us. Who is it you are today? How do you spend your moments while we are sharing them?

It doesn’t matter what took place before now. Not that these things don’t have value, they do. When we were involved in them they mattered very much. Now that they are a thing of the “past”, they do not.

Time is an aspect of the day to day that can serve or inhibit us. It is held in our mind and its relative effect takes place there as well. It doesn’t really exist – there is no such thing as “time”. A “time-piece” has been invented, that moves brilliantly and we’ve all agreed that the rotations signify a specific measurement. That is all it is.

Why bring up “time” or the “past”? It is these ideas that define our days and shape the view we hold about the possibilities for our lives. What you feel capable of is in part defined by how many “years” you’ve been here, by how those “years” have been spent and with whom. There are walls on our dreams of the “future” and chains holding us to our “past”. These things are not truth. They are fabrications held in the mind; they are thoughts.

There is a story of a man who was locked in the freezer car of a train in one of the Scandinavian countries. He died. When his body was found, it showed all of the clinical effects of having been frozen, yet the freezer was never turned on. His mind killed him.

Our minds are doing the same. Any limiting or inhibiting “fact” held there can be reversed. All thoughts are malleable and can change. Often it is those that fly in the face of “reality” that project us the fastest and furthest into our dreams. A life spent re-defining yourself to others around you seems unproductive unless you are interested in staying there. Read more

Being awake without being aware

Try to imagine what it would be like without rain; without snow; without thunderstorms, hurricanes and the like. The force of nature and the balance of “good” and “bad” are integral parts of this planet – part of what makes up the whole.

We expect “weather” to follow a pattern according to the seasons and places where we live. Each of these, weather and water, are unique to earth life in that they occur on a daily basis without any control from the beings living here; seemingly in random fashion.

Why is it that there are entire careers and lifetimes spent studying and predicting “weather”? To some of us, perhaps to many of us, this would be a boring thing to focus a lifetime on. There are overall patterns and processes that when looked at as a whole, craft a picture. It is as if there was a plan.

There is, but not one that can be discovered in a lifetime; one that began with the formation of the planet and is being carried out daily. Weather creates the circumstances for very specific life – everything in order.

We’d have to step back far enough to see this plan and have access to a record of the planet from the beginning. What is currently available, the archeological records, will serve to tell the story. Only we must understand the language.

Life is a system created with purpose and fed by many parts. The human that you are plays a vital part in all of life. Thus far you have done so without being aware of your role.

The net effect of slavery has been a numbing; a cutting off of awareness of who we are. Unaware, we’ve blundered through life and in some respects wreaked havoc and others, had little effect when effect was needed at the time we were present.

Being awake without being aware of the process is useless. We must access and utilize consciousness to participate in any potentially helpful way. We must know the plan.
