Does this make sense?

021

Sequestered in a small space (The Free Mind), a megalomania examination of “Inner-Being” provoked an epochal deliberation of critical inner reflection. In the past, however, the descent into (The Suffering Mind) normally involved ameliorating negative thoughts or regrets…however; this expedition was as aforementioned in (The Free Mind).  As such, the often-adrenalized ego remained aloof and docile.  Hence, the latent absence permitted an excursion intended on freedom from within; to travel unmolested…make sense?

In addition, to remain congruent to the new (Free Mind) this inspection considered the practice of pontificating theories of intra-forgiveness. Although, popular maxims consider ‘one should forgive and forget others’ (Inter-forgiveness), this by the way; deserve an ambitious moratorium on the phraseology of ‘speech forgiveness.’

In fact, (Imitation verbal conviction aside), to exile pain caused by other’s mischief or unintentional consequences deserves lengthy praise…albeit, whenever truly accomplished…I am sorry, I digress.

To the point at hand…How does the pardon of self-inflicted injury heal?

Without Forgiveness, Happiness is Unobtainable

059None of us wants to admit that we hate someone…When we deny our hate we detour around the crisis of forgiveness. We suppress our spite, make adjustments, and make believe we are too good to be hateful. But the truth is that we do not dare to risk admitting the hate we feel because we do not dare to risk forgiving the person we hate.” Lewis B. Smedes – Forgive & Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don’t Deserve

Shall I Forgive or Forget

The quote by fame Christian author Lewis B. Smedes above signifies more people possibly willingly to admit they own this position. In fact, some of my contemporaries who allege undying faith to God hold such sentiments. Subsequently, forgiveness is not an active commandment of their faithful requirements. However, unbeknown to the blind, without forgiveness, a true relationship with God is unobtainable.

When we clutch anger and resentment, we block the flow of God’s love. Please, let us not deceive ourselves, you cannot hate and honor God at the same time. Not forgiving is a form of extreme dislike of a person or their actions. As a result, when we refuse to forgive, we chain ourselves to those individuals and the continued judgment and condemnation of their offense. Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.” ~Marlene Dietrich

Forgiveness is a conscious decision not easily constructed. As such, some individuals maintain unmovable positions toward family members, ex-friends and foes for decades. One would not have to think long to recall those who will not forgive individuals for past events.

Also, and sorrowfully, some voice these pseudo commitments as acts of uprightness. Unfortunately, without an ounce of recourse they publicize their bitterness as a token of conviction to all who would listen. “The weak can never forgive.  Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”~Mahatma Gandhi

Why No Peace

Happiness and love does not exist within a spirit full of judgments and condemnations. You have deceived yourself if one adopts such foolishness of thought. Surely, one understand not to forgive burns the holder of the hate, not the perpetrator. In essence, you enslaved yourself with your narrowed intentions. In addition, one remains bitter at not only past events, but engages in constant judgment and condemnation of individuals’ present behaviors.

As such, we notice these individuals possessing opinions on every subjects. Sadly, they cannot maintain balance by allowing things to go by without comment. Unfortunately, no spirit can obtain peace with such ego-driven principles.  As an example whatever these individuals disagree with they form an almost unshakable hate.  They struggle with making sense of others’ behaviors, even when not directed toward them.  Often, they find themselves in troubled spirit, as a result of attempting to control and manipulate the behaviors of others.  To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” ~Lewis B. Smedes,

The key to happiness is forgiveness. To release someone from your disapproval and to love them is Godly. As we can attest, love is the absence of negativity, as even the Bible proclaims, “Perfect love cast out all fears.” Hate, resentment, and judgment are fear-based emotions, with that said, do not misconceive your ego-driven intentions. You heard it here first. “Love and forgiveness creates healing, fear sustain the pain.”

Tao Verse 30, Live Without Force

Tao Verse 30

*

If the Tao is your guide

There is no need for violence.

**

Violence used on your enemies

return to battle you. Every action

produces a counteraction.

**

The Master finishes his job and stops.

He does not boost of his victory.

He does not glorified or pride

himself through his battle.

He regrets all forms of war.

**

Because the Master knows, even the

strongest force weakens with time,

and its violence return to defeat it.

*****

Live Without Force

The Sage is careful not to prescribe to tools of violence. When anger, bitterness, and hate are chosen to battle her enemies it soon defeats her. The Sage goes against the Tao with this unsound behavior.

The Tao influence the path of least resistance. When the Sage finds herself in vicious battles she retreat: because the winds of war blow in all direction. Dismiss all violence as solutions to life situations.

Where is Your Kingdom of God?

128755_fa78

My self-realization remains a mystery too unbelievable to conceive. A short glimpse in my past reveals a stream of mental agitations rightly suited for a psychopath. I occupied for years a n egotistical infected mind.

Fortunes, fame, and acquisitions propelled my existence. I failed immeasurable amounts of times in my self-created illusionist world. I desired an external definition of self. I was a perfectly insane.

**

“The ultimate truth is so simple. It is nothing more than being in the pristine state. That is all that needs to be said.” Ramana Maharishi

A Stormy Sea

**

The chase nearly achieved its hidden-purpose my self-destruction. My obsessed mind of endless attachments and constant thinking positioned my exit many times. Fortunately, my path to spiritual awareness existed through this portal, this burnt out life. Remarkably and thankfully, my spiritual restoration would take place on earth.  Again, thank God.

“The kingdom of God will not come if you watch for it. Nor will anyone be able to say, ‘It is here’ or ‘It is there.’ For the kingdom of God is within you.” Jesus

417266_11ddI never will prescribed to the acceptance of a God mediator.  I desire to find the God in me of my own accord.  I do not want interpretation of my salvation.  The world’s religions saturated with angry Gods, restricted diets, forbidden wearing of clothing creates more confusion than harmony.

I AM…?

**

And so, I sought a definition to “I AM” without declaring obedience to man’s interpretation of God. This road a lonely stretch of self-inquiry where no exist to interpret the language and sounds of God.  I love it this way.  I am guaranteed to find my source inside me.

To pull someone out of the mud, you must first step into the mud yourself.” Hasidic Master Israel Baal Shem Tov

If the source of God is within me, I must go into the mud and bring myself to the light.

Tao Te Ching Verse 7

The Master is available to all people

and doesn’t reject anyone.

She is ready to use all situations

and doesn’t waste anything.

This is called embodying the light.

**

What is a good man but a bad man’s teacher?

What is a bad man but a good man’s job?

If you don’t understand this, you will get lost,

however intelligent you are.

It is the great secret.

Dragon will talk later about Kingdom.

Tao Verse 26 Calm

3919_d5a7

The heavy is the root of the light.

Stillness is the master of chaos.

*

The Master poised amidst the disorder.

Her feet firmly planted

in her home while traveling

the world.

*

Why should the Lord of the country

flit around like a fool?

If you let yourself be blown to and fro

you lose touch with your root.

*

To be restless is to

lose one’s self-control.
