I'm a student of Universal Law. The law of polarity says, "Everything is Dual. Everything has poles. Everything has its pair of opposites. Like and unlike are the same. Opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree.”
What's the difference between hot and cold? Just a number of degrees, but they both share a continuum of temperature.
Democrats and Republicans share a continuum of partisanship. According to the law of polarity, Democrats and Republicans are identical in nature, but different in degree.
The ENDS of the poles are emphasized, rather than the shared continuum. The shared humanity. As a result, there is auto-hate, all the time, from every angle.
If your body was divided against itself -- aka "auto-immune disease" -- it would not function optimally. The same is true of a nation.
Psychological and spiritual WARfare.
Did you know that the root of the word 'WAR' is 'confuse'? And the definition of "confuse" means 'to mix and mingle things until they are indistinguishable.'
Indistinguishable. Not clearly perceived. Incapable of telling apart.
That's a perfect description of covid protocols and death rates. US election results. And most of the happenings this year!
Confused is a mental state many of us have probably been feeling.
The connection to be drawn is that CONFUSE is the essence of WAR, and warfare is what we have been actively engaged in for 8 straight months.
Everyone wouldn't consciously call it that, but everyone's physiology does. Our nervous systems have all been doing their best to regulate us through nearly a year of sustained, alarming fear and a reality that has become indistinguishable from most dystopic fiction.
While grounded at home, functioning under various degrees of war-shock and trauma... no longer sure how to even connect with each other, humanity inadvertently turned on each other.
Is that a RED hat on your head?! Or, are you still crying over THAT?!
The mass confusion makes us act as if we are each other's enemy, and we are not! Just as the AIR is not our enemy. And the SUN is not our enemy. And HUMAN CONTACT is not our enemy.
Chronic and sustained fear is the enemy. It was planted early this year, and nurtured every single waking moment. Fear has seeded a lot of terrible blooming fruit, including:
And all this irrational horror is being inflicted upon impressionable, developing CHILDREN.
In full honesty, how many adults did you know -- pre-Covid -- who were daring enough to live life as they wanted? Very few.
Imagine the weak and wounded chickens that will wobble home to roost, as a result of being socialized into BLIND DOCILITY.
Remember that slavery was LEGAL.
This means that ruling powers can and do get it wrong. Like now. Ruling powers got it wrong. They twisted life. With highly effective confusion that keeps us at each other's throat, while ruling powers do exactly what they want, and cause incalculable harm to the entire planet, and all life on it.
What do I propose? Glad you asked! :-) Go through this with me, if you like. It's called The Lovingkindness Prayer, and I cannot do it with my eyes and or heart being changed in some beneficial way.
Treating others as you want to be treated is one thing. But praying for the happiness and well-being of someone considered an enemy... it might sound too lofty to even bother with, but did you ever consider that an 'enemy' who was whole, would no longer be an enemy?
And that is why I pray for the WHOLENESS of those in power.
Follow along with me, and see if you notice anything:
Thanks for doing that journey with me!
As a reward for the hard work this week, next week, we have a sweet treat from a Featured Voice sharing about "Empathy + Ecstasy!"
Stay tuned. Stay tender. Much love.
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
