Herewith, a most concise evaluation of the ‘hall of mirrors’ we are born into.
To discover ‘the trick,’ to become fully aware of the grand illusions is to reclaim your independence from it.
Life rule #1: know the difference between the real and the unreal. When we succeed at this we can be ‘in the world and not of it.’ We don’t have to run away from the world – the challenge in fact is to stay ‘in the world’ (in the ‘fun house’ hall of mirrors) without it affecting your purity or moving you out of your anchored clarity. From there you can powerfully impact its rehabilitation (like the noble physical path of those who undertake the rehabilitation of their internal terrain – which likewise can only be done when the physical ‘hall of mirrors’ is understood).
In both cases, we just have to root the clarity so we can succeed in living from a noble mind. We must be very careful, of course, that we maintain our grip on ‘reality’ by remaining in a state of constant consciousness, as that ensnaring set of illusions is a master trickster. But when that’s solid (possibly through repeated slip-ups and overcomings), you bring the greatest gifts of service to mankind and you also get to experience all the heart-expanding joys of your birth-right: absolute freedom on every level!
With the decibels of political white noise growing intolerably amplified, I wonder how often the citizens of this beautiful planet stop to think about what makes a government legitimate. What does functional government even look like and how can we crystallize a fail-proof vision of government that could genuinely serve our highest expression as individuals and as a collective?
As with all things, we can find our answers in nature and in this case, more precisely, in the human terrain. N.B. When I say human terrain, I am referring to the multi-tiered and interconnected terrains of our whole makeup – the terrain of the flesh, the terrain of the mind, the terrain of the emotions and the terrain of the spirit.
Nowhere do the facets of politics factor in more than they do in the human being. Ergo, it’s no surprise that in our governing ‘bodies’ we find a holographic model.
It all comes down to assigning correct authority and ensuring that this ‘correct authority’ remains in perfect integrity (and I mean mirroring the tightly knit quality of healthy tissues, built on subatomics that are also in perfect integrity/centripetal spin). Correct authority is the impeccable executor of justice, liberty, legal code, and property rights because this sole authority truly knows what these inalienable rights mean to the expression being governed. First and foremost, we have to know that this is what we are looking for in an authority and know what precisely those terms must represent (because firstly, we develop this authority within ourselves — knowing that any external authority is only optional, arguably superfluous, and at any given time, expendable. Otherwise, we will choose a lesser authority and dangerously put our trajectory (and our group’s trajectory) in the wrong hands.
Healthy terrain, internal systems, thoughts, emotions and human spirit depend on ideal justice, liberty and property rights as much as does any free citizen.
Our human terrains cannot operate functionally and remain in a sytropic, life-generating state without the freedom to be themselves and follow their primal inclinations/desires. As you know, when repression and suppression smother that primal expression, illness results. We need leadership that lives by the codes of primal justice, primal liberty, primal property rights. I’m not suggesting that can be arranged overnight but the more we can appreciate how the holographic model works, the more we can activate the correct authority within ourselves and start self-governing!
Here’s where the body as ‘political philosophy teacher’ becomes really interesting…the body has its own checks and balances system. If you start to take away the body’s rights to be free to do what it is designed to do, symptoms/pain ensues. Now, this would seem obvious but the point is that no undermining of freedom escapes justice – thus, there can be no stealing, no sloth, no murder without immediate collection of compensation (per the Natural Law of Compensation). In short, the price is paid; the sentence is delivered and swiftly carried out. The same is true for the emotions, mind and spirit (have you ever seen a repressed emotion, idea or spirit throw off its chains and hold a tribunal for war crimes against it (a.k.a. repression)? I have – I’ve seen it in myself to boot!
Let the white noise that gives no worthy guidance, that is incapable of selecting a ‘correct authority’ be until its decay cycle is complete. In the meantime, you and I have our work cut out for us as we bring to power the inner government, whose Constitution is based on nothing less than the quintessentially legitimate integrity of Natural and Universal Law. That’s how I vote anyway.
How should we pour life-juice into decaying tissues? Very carefully! And, what wine and green juice have in common…
Whether you have a religious affiliation or not, it bears appreciating that the ancient theological texts (from all spiritual traditions) are filled with clues to the crucial Natural & Universal Laws that govern your life. As I hope you are realizing, being knowledgeable and in-sync with these laws determines whether you thrive or not.
When an individual whom I know has a biblical background complains to me about an uncomfortable reaction upon drinking green juice, I’ll immediately direct them to the biblical admonition in Luke 5:37-38 that reads: “And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins…new wine must be poured into new wineskins.” The connection is this: your digestive tract is like the old wineskins. It is rancid and filled with the residue of antiquated fermentation and unfavorable microbes. The green juice is the ‘new wine,’ the life-generating microbes. The unfavorable microbes (a.k.a. pathogens) will recoil and flare up when met with these ‘new wine’ microbial ‘beings’ (for they are like little beings) in the same way that we see the ‘devilish energy’ flare up and sizzle when met with the holy water in the movie, The Exorcist. Now, please also note that the complaint is a-cause of the individual having chosen to ingest a far too concentrated alkaline formulation for their unique cleansing transition level. It is not a fault of the green juice (the ‘new wine’) per se but of this density of alkalinity meeting with this quality of tissues and quantity of matter and gas pressure (the ‘old wineskins’).
This is why it’s critical to start with the more diluted formulations like cucumber and romaine lettuce (with lemon/ginger/stevia optional), rather than go full tilt juicing kale, dandelion, chard and parsley (the darker the greens the more medicinal; the more medicinal, the more life-force potency (centripetally spinning activated electrons), which must be tempered if there are blockages and a high degree of pathogens in the body/wineskins)!
As the old microbes depart (through natural bowel elimination, colonics, enemas and deep sweating), a greater percentage of darker greens can be introduced with excellent results. Remember we cannot break Natural & Universal Law, we can only break ourselves against them. Putting new wine in old wineskins (both literally per the biblical narrative and figuratively in this green juice scenario) are prime examples of breaking oneself against ‘the law.’
There are countless parables that serve to reinforce the laws and their applications in light of our cleansing endeavors. In my dream world, I’ll get to more of them in short order. They offer up new understanding to the parables themselves and shed much light on why the cleansing experiences present as they do.
Do you want to know something exquisitely optimistic? The centripetal vortex structure (that life-generating force-field that is intrinsic to all life — visible and invisible) sweeps all that we would call, “death” back up into its regenerating field where that broken, de-spiralled energy (death) is transfigured by the unspeakably vast, powerful centripetal spin of Source and made new and alive again.
Everything that exists is part of the ONE life, held in its unfathomably vast embrace. All those centrifugal expressions, once they putter out having leaked all their life-force, having become over-run by decay-cycle pathogenic mobs of any and all sizes, get swept right back into the benevolent vacuum of life-generating spin, (without judgment, without needing a ticket to ride). That is what heaven is.
In fact, anytime this sweeping up of death into the unspeakably vast, all-embracing force-field of unerring spin occurs, whether on a macro or microcosmic level, heaven can be found. If you find your life there, you will reside in a special kind of heaven always and be a heaven for anyone and anything that passes through you. And if you don’t find your life there, and you fall to centrifugal ruin, rest assured, you will be swept up and made new because you cannot escape the love that is holding you within, whether you feel it or not.
When you cleanse your cells and tissues, you become your own surgeon. The removal of the interloping blockages triggers a great re-knitting of the tissues to occur – something science only dreams of as it attempts to mimic such life-generating phenomena. At the very least, science has to go to great lengths to achieve something with entropic tissue that Life achieves with healthy tissue as naturally as breathing. (At worst, science has to apply immoral tactics to do so). So why not just remediate the tissue so Life can work it’s natural magic? (Ah, because that would entail discipline and lifestyle change).
Life is by definition regenerative. Only death/entropy requires questionable, convoluted, complicated apparatus. Again, for what? To mimic what Life does effortlessly on its own under the right conditions! Radiance, strength, purity, clarity, creativity, effortlessness. These are the fruits of the your inner surgeons discipline & focus. It can take many days and hours in the operating theater. But there is great work being done – divine suturing, transcendent transplants, ineffable transfusions & cosmetic miracles.
Tip: It’s time, once and for all, to get over what the ‘beast’ in you wants to consume. Get over your lower impulses. They will just take you lower and lower. Find a way to love your greens. They are your “soap.”
Get over this idea that you are entitled to be satisfied all the time and, instead try on the power of a bit of sacrifice. It’s healthy and wholesome to rise above knee-jerk desires. Don’t trust all those cravings that you are otherwise encouraged by the carnal, lost-world, to indulge in. They are illusions of satisfaction. Real pleasure and satisfaction will come to you as undeniably as the morning light.
Small but deliberate steps. Everyday, a little more. You can be a great surgeon and regenerate your body. But there are no short cuts in the operating theater…no cutting at all in fact, just the release of the impediments to conductivity and then, natural reconnection. Remember that what it actually means to “deny oneself” is to discard the truth of what you are. That is a far cry from the common understanding of the term which is to fail to give yourself the indulgences you desire. In effect when you indulge your lower impulses per the latter directive, you in fact, actually discard the truth of what you are.
You can become the light/the primal fire/the eternal flame or you can get burned by it. The eternal flame will go on either way, incinerating all that is not itself. True to itself, the eternal fire of light will always unapologetically and uncompromisingly flame on.
