Dear Reader…How I wish you were right here, beside me, looking in my eyes as I look within yours. How I long to sit with you a while, feel the longings of your heart, watch… or better, live with you… your dreams born of your experiences. As you read, please feel of my dedication to write those things given to me that might be a blessing for you and all of humanity. Your time is precious, your today is a gift from yesterday as well as an investment into your tomorrow. For you to be carving out some of those valuable moments in contemplation of the ideas and images that I paint with words upon the canvas of your mind is your reception of my investment in writing them for you. Thank you. May my words enliven your awareness and give you hope, dislodging beliefs and images which no longer serve you. That is my quest.
And so I take up my premise that “Virtue” is possible. For your life, and mine, for all of humanity. It has long been prophesied that today’s ideas would have taken yesterday’s wisdom and turned its Intelligence on its head. In nothing is this more demonstrated than in the concept of virtue. Today, lies abound, walking upon two legs, speaking with vocal cords ideas affixed upon mental screens that seem to make sense… at least these ideas are painted upon billboards and portrayed upon video screens, seeming to be the ideas and ideals of the masses. Why shouldn’t miniature versions of these images be reproduced within individual skulls as well?
How can the masses have accepted and be living lies? With all the “intelligence quotients” out there, how can so many have bought into the same delusions? Yet, they are. Adulterated versions of them Selves, individuals stand in front of metal-coated glass each morning before heading out. They comb their hair, brush their teeth, make sure they are ready to present their acquired image to humanity for one more day. Yet, do these moments primping and pruning before mirrors show accurate reflections of the truth inside? Has each received their originally conceived image in their countenance? Does the true light within shine out through their eyes?
I watched a sobbing woman last night weep for her friend’s eight-year old daughter whose heart had been broken as she looked at her eight-year-old frame in her mirror. Horrors! She was fat! She had to go on a diet in order to conform to the expectations society mandated for her. And her young mother had wept as she had commiserated with her friend who also sobbed as she shared with her video audience which included me. And hearing, I feel even more dedicated to take up my cross and write about virtue.
When I was a young girl, I sobbed as I watched the movie “Oliver.” Another young child, an orphan, was seeking inclusion as he sought for someone, his mother, to value him. Though I technically had a biological mother, though she probably thought she loved me, still my own heart registered the tragedy of his plea:
Where is love?
Does it fall from skies above?
Is it underneath the willow tree
That I’ve been dreaming of?
Where is she?
Who I close my eyes to see?
Will I ever know the sweet “hello”
That’s meant for only me?
Who can say where she may hide?
Must I travel far and wide?
‘Til I am beside the someone who
I can mean something to
Where is love?
And so, the quest.
A child is born. Maybe in a hospital, perhaps in a home. She takes her first breath, and then her next. She eats, messes, grows, learns, accepts the implanted belief systems of those around her who feed her and care for her and tell her who she is. She gains stature, mental abilities. In time, perhaps, she gives birth to another child who takes his first breath, and then his next. And so life cycles in. And out. Breath after breath. Image following image. Each one implanting their acquired image of what is important into the one who follows. Generation following generation. And for this we were born.
Or is this really why we exist? Is this life? Is this living? Birth following death following birth following death following birth…
Could there be more?
Could it be that the words I write are just more of the promulgation of our society’s implanted images? Or, could it be that my words, implanted within fertile soil, have potential ability to germinate and grow, bearing fruit of a different variety? Is it possible that the seeds I plant and water might bring forth life more abundant?
The words of Exodus 20, memorized by many “Christians,” seem to be implanting wisdom. Yet, misunderstood, they have allowed misunderstandings… and misery.
…3You shall have no other gods before Me. 4You shall not make for yourself an idol of any kind, or an image of anything in the heavens above, the earth below, or the waters under the earth. 5You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on their children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,…
If you will, I encourage you to allow me to re-translate these words. Perhaps you could try on another interpretation and perhaps this time, understanding… and life… might be the result.
YOU are the god that must come forth and present its Self as an empowered being, worthy of taking up your position within humanity as a co-creator of eternal, radiant Life. In order to have no one else (a “god”) be more important than the divine implanted essence lying dormant within your own heart, you must take your guidance from no one else outside of your Self. Do not bow down or worship or accept as important any image from any one else. No billboard. No newscaster. No neighbor. No teacher. No bishop. No prophet. No one. Likewise, do not lend an iniquitous image to anyone else. Especially an impressionable child.
Instead, lead yourself deep within. Lead your friend, your infant, your lover… deep within them self.
Yesterday’s post exposed the perverted twist in parenting our youth, particularly adolescent boys. I wrote about our young men being violated by images of masculinity and manhood which are toxic and which have led to society’s demise. Religions and Patriarchal orders of control and dominance, men jockeying for position upon the proverbial ladder of success; women placating these men in order to find their own acceptance, value, the requirements for their continued existence; children raised with contorted ideas of who they are and why they exist…
It is time to STOP!
These mirrors in front of which we have been seeking our images have been distorted! They are not presenting the truth! They lie! And lying, they propagate lies within the masses’ visual cortex. We have been culturally “bearing false witnesses” of who we each Really Are. We have been bowing down and honoring “idols,” “stars who have fallen from heaven,” and we have been reaping the resultant “iniquity” (lack of inner quiety)… even promoting that “iniquity” generation after generation.
While propagating energetic thought forms of delusion and lies, we have culturally dismissed the saving Christ Message. Orthodox religions have implanted tare seeds that God is someone outside our individual selves who is a hard taskmaster, a severe Puritanical parent whose punitive mandates are intended to make us miserable. With such definitions of these Gods, many have consigned themselves to lives of worn-out woes in false hopes of a better life after having proven their endurance level. Others, rebelling from this concept have adopted ideas and beliefs of no restraints necessary, freely experimenting upon anything and everything in order to find the magical elixir. A good feeling. Or two.
Again… it is time to STOP!
The only “ladder of success” that a young boy should begin to climb is the one leading down within the inner recesses of his own soul. From his toddler-hood, a boy must be taught that there is one… and only one… precious female who is preparing HERself to take HIM over the threshold into life more abundant. Although many women can satisfy a man set on the grave, only one woman can take him into eternity. For females, they must be taught that only one man can truly fulfill her. Like the hints contained within the body configuration itself, only one man is the key to the recesses of her soul.
As long as false images are rampantly portrayed upon countless screens, men and women are going to continually feel the misery accompanying the costs of opportunity. With a plethora of possibilities, unrest and confusion rein within minds. The current dilemma is that there are so many choices, so many variables to consider, the mind goes mad during the never-ending consideration process. And afterwards: “What if I made the wrong choice? Maybe there is someone better… someone who will put up with this about me, accept this about me, complement this about me, love me more or better…,” And so there never was, completely, a choice made. In the back of one’s mind simmers doubt. This leads to continued furtive glances… in public, in the secrecy of privacy, on the internet, billboards, screens, neighbors’ wives… “She wants me! So does she! And her and her and her…!” Our men, trained from adolescence for dominance, for value acquired from others, for outward satiation of their incessant inner urges, have gone tacitly insane. And so has resultant humanity.
In order to save our men, our children born and yet unborn… women must shake themselves from their false images and do what I have done. Moses, Mahonri, the angel who guided Lot’s wife, Noah, others… Each have realized that in order to find Life and hope and lasting peace… one must leave “Babylon,” the world and its images, and carve out a new life, a simple life.
In order to find the love that exists within, we must carve out a new life for ourselves beyond the borders of our secure mental belief-systems which have been falsely constructed. As long as an individual keeps feeding themselves with the current “common sense,” they will continue to have the same results: cycles of intermittent pleasures with longer spans of futile exertion leading to and through disease, death, and repeat. All while missing true and eternal L.O.V.E., fulfillment, and the Realization of Who One TRULY Is.
The irony of life is that as long as one is spiritually blind and deluded, there exists a certain level of comfort. Those who live fully saturated within the materiality of false delusions are relatively satisfied. On the whole, they have a better time and live lives that seem to work to some degree. Applying persistent focus they can even become one of the “honored men and women of the world.”
However… those blinded generations have now come to pass. As more have begun to awaken to the realization of their spiritual emptiness and have shaken the scales that have hidden their true inner vision, they have found their way, to some degree or another, out of Babylon. And here is where the Armageddon has entered into their own minds. They now “serve two masters.” They have an inner angst which points them away from their accepted belief systems, all while their fears and “good enough” relationships hold them back within it. And this, of course, cannot be done. “Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
Silently, unawares, two world HAVE collided! YOU are feeling the incessant tremor of the resulting earths-quaking. And you must decide which world, hell or the incoming heaven, upon which you wish to live. You have lived the accepted beliefs of the material, temporal world… hell. Ahhh… did you not know that you have been existing in hell? But you have. You now are offered another opportunity. Yet this new world… the new earth, heaven… is built upon a new foundation, one constructed not of the reflected insanity of false images and transitory illusions but upon the rock of the Real Truth of Who We Each ARE… eternally.
Mankind is essentially spiritual, the image and likeness of God. As Adam required a more perfected “Eve” to complete him, so too does humanity require women, virtuous women, to lead the way. Men must realize that even in their best attempts, colluding with another man or men brings about sorrow. Even partnering with a woman who has not yet finished her own journey to the summit of the spiritual mountain as described beautifully and succinctly in Matthew 5: 11-12, will bring heartache and woe, disease and death to him and all his descendants.
Indeed, the best efforts of men are those which have been called “secret combinations.” Men commiserating with men. Plans made with the logical, rational mind of “common sense.” Organizations constructed to advance the shares of those who contribute for their own benefit. These have all been in vain. No matter how eloquent or “white-washed,” these must be dismantled or implode. They are destroying society’s humanity.
It is only when a pure, virtuous woman whose vision is the welfare of those yet unborn leads the way into our shared future that mankind has hope for something better for all. Only groups of these pure virtuous women can safely combine with no residual undermining repercussions. It is this type of eternal companionship which every heart craves. It is this virtue which a young man longs to find in his hero journey. It is this L.O.V.E. that every orphan seeks. It is this pure vibration that will lead the way to the full integration of Heaven upon earth while the former world finds dissolution and becomes a thing of naught.
And so I bid you adieu for today with the hopes that my words linger long in your heart as you prepare for my offering tomorrow. Just what IS a “virtuous woman?” How is virtue and power related? Can we as a culture really trust a virtuous woman? Can a man ever, truly, find one? If her price is “far above rubies,” how can a young man invest his days to prepare for her discovery? Once prepared, will a virtuous woman ever choose him? What then? When all women are virtuous, when all men are, likewise, pure and valiantly focused on being a Gentle-Man, HER gentleman, then what? What will heaven be composed of? How will it feel?
(To be, again, continued…)
