I hope things are well on your end of the world. Albeit the world is in constant flux no matter if we're causing it or not. Change may be an ever revolving reality, however it is not the only reality we must contend with on a daily basis. Whenever you feel yourself being suffocated from the pressures of your life. It is always safe to retreat into your sacred places in spirit. In order to recharge your senses and to surmount your difficulties that from a distance aren't as difficult to scale in time.
Today's trio of "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statements are on the topics of a: Revolution, Poverty, and on Oneness. Written originally back in late January 2010 in the numbered series of #1012-1014.
As always may you find the nugget of truth of what I attempt to convey.
Be well and enjoy.
1012) The death to a free and fair market society is that of unfettered capitalism run amok without societal safeguards. Monopolies become clumps of staggering behemoths that intimidate any nation in good times and certainly bad ones. In fear of being to big to fail, which is code speak for corporate welfare from the State. A near blank check to do as the enterprise wishes in order to stay artificially alive. Any monopoly propped up by the State soon becomes a puppet of one or the other. Where capitalists comport themselves with near impunity as being nearly above the law. Or the State assumes ultimate authority to decide what is in its own interests using the guise or facade of a corporate entity as its outreach mechanism.
A truly free and fair enterprise market society is like a mighty roaring river. It may occasionally overflow its banks of prosperity amongst the masses. Yet if a drought does occur those incapable of survival must wither and move onward to other ventures. Interference that causes reckless behavior from within any industry or the State itself by being asleep at the switch as regulators. Only acts as a societal disease agent spreading virulent strains of incompetence, corruption, abuse, and collusion to all equally. Capitalism becomes a hoax or an unruly Hydra a beast like any other when not kept in check for the safety of the citizen and consumer alike. Fiat tendencies and bitter rivalries will cause near revolts in all chambers of power as ego's rule the day.
As the commoner gasps at the childish tendencies of those promoted by enterprise to success. If worse our elected or appointed politicians acting like ivory tower divas. In order to act out their ideological tantrums at the expense of the general welfare of the whole society. They allegedly swore an oath to govern with dignity and hold their office in higher esteem. Expect the citizenry to tolerate much of the shenanigans of such lofty personalities acting like spoiled brats.
However do not expect a blank check or a free pass when the citizenry become unruly by civil protests or plain ugly riots. This is when all suffer knowing that there is a true vacuum of power due to a lack of centralized authority in government. All can be easily left for the ordinary person playing by someone else rules realizes they've been sold a false propaganda. This is when civility in discourse takes a back seat to get down and dirty with all on an equal basis whether innocent or guilty. The days of smooth talking leaders gives way to a near fatal dose of a reality check.
Only the brave at heart capable of articulating the wisdom of the ages with a cool head. Will become the peace makers of tomorrow for the present moment may decry the lust of violence. Due to the angst of betrayal from the masses only having rage to direct at those perceived responsible for their own demise. Men and women of principle may become drowned out in the short run. However the marathon of leadership belongs to them always by their just acts and sensible plans laid out for all. Thus the days promise becomes the new song to live by for the generations to come. With a virtue and a promise that is both truthful and trustworthy. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
1013) To eradicate poverty of the human condition is easier than eradicating poverty of the human spirit within. One form of poverty is of the physical body and the other is of the heart and mind. To eradicate poverty of the human condition simply put one must have the basic necessities to living. Such as: food, clothing, and good shelter. In the modern era this becomes considerably expanded to include access to: quality healthcare and education, transportation, with employable skill sets.
For the alternative is worse to live from one generation to the next in perpetual servitude. Where freedom may be present in principle however liberty is nowhere to be found in practice. Thus a desperate people do things that is best left to the imagination be it criminal or otherwise. Compassion must not only come from the regular citizen connected to the philanthropic world. It must also stem from the National State lest one form of misery spreads like a cancer to other segments of the society as a whole. As one is lifted out of mortal poverty the quality of everything in one's world increases positively. In accord to the real meaning in spirit of freedom and the pursuit of liberty for all.
To lift a human being out of a spirit of poverty is harder still to resolve. One needs to be nurtured by example on the natural prosperity of our created universe. To be lovingly shown the ways of a grateful heart for what one may have, no matter its current quantity. To be given examples of generosity where one must act in kind with a compassionate stance towards all. Most importantly is to be taught the act of unconditional Love for oneself, for others, and the greater environment at large. Which is the cure all of any ailment of our Spirit within. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
1014) We as an expression of Life manifest on this Earth are of One combined Spirit. Only in our frail thinking minds do we negate such a great truth of being one in spiritual kinship. If not for the compassion of our hearts can we surmount the false divisions we uphold through the mind.
Our mortal minds can be transitioned into a more robust truer form of "Unity Thinking". However it will be based upon releasing on what holds us back. By welcoming the truth of our Oneness in Spirit through constant mindful surrender. Such a surrender does not denote succumbing to the whims of another person. This surrender is sublime in a vulnerable fashion as a very personal walk with yourself in tranquility. One that will uplift both your mind and heart in one fell swoop as an act of living grace.
Our Unity as Souls comes from the wellspring of our inherent divinity because God(dess) has loved us since the dawn of Creation. Such a love is dynamic, it is vital to the very scope of our spirits to function within every dimensional reality we may find ourselves within body and of spirit. Thus we become enabled not just as living people, but as triumphant souls bringing to life a version of paradise on Earth many refer to as the "Garden of Eden". Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
If they listen, and serve him, they complete their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasantness. ---Job 36:11
We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love... and then we return home. ---Australian Aboriginal Proverb.
Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed. ---Abraham Lincoln.
Your vision will become clear only when you look in to your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. ---Carl Gustav Jung.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. ---Marcel Proust.
Projection makes Perception.
