We try to fill the wounds of our souls with junk. The food we eat is a perfect symbol.
Hopefully some will have awakened to these during the past few days. These are the holidays that really bare witness of our physical sickness and spiritual sickness, which gets proven again in a few more weeks come Christmas time.
We attach things (clothes, make-up, etc) to ourselves, in the false order rather than attaching to each other. All the consumerism is about falsehood. To temporally fool ourselves. But like the body rejecting a false organ, the spirit does so too. It rejects and then we go for more and more. Until our spirits are like the bodies of drug addicts. We fill our bodies with empty foods even though our bodies crave nourishment and movement. We fill our spiritual stomaches with similarly empty things and we end up with spiritual diarrhea. The Oneness...the connections between us go on unsatisfied and we cover those irritated bowels with more veils to cover the sounds of the rumblings and we deafen the senses so the spirit and body don't let us go insane with the struggle.
We already have veils over us and many continually put more veils over themselves in similarity to bandages on wounds. Those wounds need to be exposed! They need to breath as the saying goes.
Look at the examples of those the Carpenter's Son helped. They represent us. The lepers who fell apart (as we fall apart from each other!) and the whores who sold their bodies and spirits for that which has no value. For that which doesn't last. I think reincarnation is pretty on the spot with what it is teaching us. If you don't understand this life as it is, a part of eternity and do not seek that which is eternal, then you will get a mulligan or a redo and given another chance because you only lived in the temporary. You keep living in the temporary and you get a temporal life and you keep going until you get it. Yet the biggest "secret" is right under our noses, which is that it is about living in the moment, realizing each moment is eternal.
The weekend! There is a popular union (a false forced/coerced union/connection) sticker that says, "from the people that brought you the weekend." The people who brought us the weekend. The people who brought us the weekend. The people who brought us the weekend. The religions that brought us the sabbath day. We are living in the 7th day as the Bible symbolically tells, then all days are part of the day of rest. Yet here we go again tearing things apart and separating that which truly is ONE. If there was no weekend, what would happen? People would revolt. They would go insane! They wouldn't tolerate rarely being with their families. Life would be about your job and that would be basically it for almost everyone (even though we are nearly there now). People wouldn't take it and they would fight back. But people have the weekend to let out their pent up energies and frustrations. They get almost to the tipping point and then they let it all out and comeback slumbering to work a few days later. We truly live in a leprous society. Our bodies are falling apart.
My brother shared this in the Reconciliation Movement page:
“The aging process is accelerated through DNA processing. Aging accelerates the moment the brain reaches 21 years and refuses to accept the importance of the childhood level. You’re not getting any older - you’re just GAINING MOMENTUM. There’s no time, only momentum. Yesterday and tomorrow are right here. Above all, my dear brothers and sisters, don’t practice suicide.”
[It may seem strange to think we might all be practicing suicide, however if we are living with the thought of eventually dying, then we are just doing this in a very slow way. We are ‘taking our life’ by all the limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings we have every moment. When one is truly LIVING TO LIVE they have left the thought and feeling of death behind. As long as ‘death’ is there as your reality, you are Living to Die and walking among the Living Dead. I do not write this out of judgement, I write this out of personal experience. My experience is that I am in the process of overcoming this ‘death urge’ in order to truly live forever. It is a process of cleaning up our acts, moment to moment
If we don't reconcile with our selves...stand in the mirror with ourselves. This doesn't come by goals. That is something that took me a while to come around to. It never can. Zion can never be established by a goal. The Zion within you nor the city are achieved by the Babylonian system. True change comes from a hunger within that cannot be explained or described to the unexperienced.
Don't be afraid to follow your desires, to let your hungry stomach growl and rumble. Then feed it.
People speak of the 2012 Mayan prophecy as something big. Maybe...maybe not. I do like the interpretation that it is about a new revelation, a new era. The old era dies as the new era sprouts and blooms. I think this is happening. Looking at the collapse of society (which is obvious to everyone except society...does anyone except a few really see their destruction coming the next morning as they go to bed?), there really is only hope in Zion. I have seen this hope in those that are connecting. This isn't anything particularly special about one being or people. It is within all of us and all things. All things are one. It is happening all over. People talk about Christ Coming! Well, it truly is Christ is come. Think about and understand who Christ is. It changes everything.
