With Patriotism on the Decline, Why Fireworks?

Last night I was driven crazy by the onslaught of loud bombing sounds. It was as if the country was under siege. July 4th. Independence Day. My dog slept in the bathtub, because that was the only place he felt safe. I am sensory defensive. I get it. I wanted to sleep right along side my frightened pup, with earplugs and perhaps with my head submerged under water so that I would be filled with the silence of the deep sea.

As this frenetic discourse blasts on around me into the late night, I wondered why, as a country, we celebrate our liberation from British rule by reactivating the very sounds that bombarded around us.

The bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that are flag was still there.

I get it! But I also don’t understand why reenacting these blasts of tyranny and revolt, year after year, cause the masses to feel celebratory. Is anyone really putting two pieces of the puzzle together. If all of those really enjoying setting off bombs in the air really do have a feeling of reminiscence or of patriotism. I would have to doubt this seriously. I think it today is a reason to release testosterone into the atmosphere in the form of noxious gases, period.

Patriotism is on a steady decline since the current political atmosphere has become a joke. None of those who are truly watching all of the news with open eyes and are concerned about what may happen next if the current administration goes on without restraint could care less about bombs bursting in the air. What we do care about, however, is peace—for our souls and most especially our minds.

I spend every morning trying to find this peace in the utter chaos of the world with meditation. When I see glimpses of it in my mind, I hold on to it for dear life—to the fragments of sanity that I know exist somewhere in the ether and are intended to move through me and then into the world.

But how in this current circumstance can this happen through me or you?

I think about the prime impediment of every single human being that wants and desires peace for the world and for themselves—FEAR! We are afraid that by ourselves—we will not be enough to make any kind of change. We are afraid that if we follow the leadings of the heart that we will be much too selfish and somehow not come out helping the faithful cause of liberation to those captive and in chains from prejudice and injustice. I say, “In the face of the injustices in the world, how can we not follow the treasure of passion in our hearts?”

I recently have begun to understand that as one human being, the best that I can do is to follow my passion to the fullest, no matter what kinds of fear try to block my path. Why?

I work toward my passion, because I understand that the seed of God’s greatest desire is the most deeply rooted seed in my heart. If this were true, then where I go and what I become in this world will greatly impact not only me, but the entire world—no matter if I’m a garbage collector or a great musician making a statement with album after album.

Today is the day that you look deep inside yourself and decide what action or movement will most crucially impact your life—then go for it! You must!

All of the world is waiting for you to be the biggest and best you that you can be! The are waiting for you to realize that you are made in the image and passion of Creator Good. When you and I embrace our power, then we can bring peace and joy back to this Earth.

Release My Fears!

Our primal instinct in life is to be loved, I have absolutely no doubt. Acceptance is at the core of this need. Yet, we consistently try to conform to what other people want us to be. We deny our own inner wisdom. We choose from column A of choices made by our parents and mentors. We even will neglect our own drive to manifest greatness at the risk of making people feel uncomfortable with our light. Why is this so?

As a child I watched many things going on around me that I didn’t understand. Discovering what made people like and admire others intrigued me.

When I noticed someone gaining attention from an act of kindness, a special talent, or getting straight A’s on a report card, you had better believe I did my best to achieve all of those accolades. The way to being accepted and also the need to be accepted were at the core of my subconscious. This functionality of my life manifested early on and continued until I became self-actualized. In other words: Until I was able to see my humanness apart from my highest consciousness, I had no idea that my entire life was based on these subconscious principals that I needed to be loved by others and I would do just about anything to get their love.

The moment I discovered my dysfunction, I prayed that I would have the power and strength to change what did not serve me and accept the possibility of a new and better future with the help of Spirit’s guidance. This is the moment a whirlwind—albeit a tempest—began in my life.

  1. Friends began to fall away.
  2. Careers shifted.
  3. New people came into my life.
  4. The haters and judgers left.

Those who had the capacity to love arrived. They were people I didn’t expect, because they were not in my old paradigm.

Acquiescing to the newness of this life was quite difficult, at first, until I began to see the amazingly sweet fruits of this change. At first, all I could see was the incredible loss of all the things that I thought were dear. I didn’t understand why people I thought I loved deeply would leave me and even religious leaders betrayed me.

One day in the middle of a lawsuit from my business, brought on by an alcoholic lawyer who decided that I should be responsible for the damage of her car during a hail storm while she was in session. She also decided that, even though she arrived with a hangover for each session, that I should be in charge of the atmosphere around me and keep everything silent while she tried to get quiet inside her mind.

For some strange reason, instead of doing what my lawyer told me to do, what I normally would have done to make things soft and easy and just repay her money, I chose to challenge her in court.

I didn’t hire a lawyer. I didn’t worry much about my reasoning for fighting her. I simply trusted my gut instinct to stand up for what was right, instead of getting stepped on. The night before I was expected in court, I helped a friend take photographs at a socialite party, because she wasn’t feeling well. One of the people I took a picture was a judge.

Who do you think was the judge in the circuit court where I ended up the next morning? He was so kind that he actually looked through the records I had in a manila folder, quickly assessed the problem, and came to a quick conclusion that I had won the case based on something I didn’t even realize was law. Slam-dunk, I won the case in the first five minutes.

How did this event in my life change me?

I realized that something inside or outside of me was watching, kind of like an overseer. This overseer was a part of me, the strongest part of me, a part of me that was connected to The Whole. As a result I began to get in touch with this overseer in meditation. The more time I spent in meditation, quiet and alone with myself, God, and the creative forces of the universe, the more I realized what my purpose had become.

When you discover why you are here on the Earth, you let get of almost all of your fear, especially the fear of not being accepted. As we know from history, Jesus was rejected by so many of the people he trusted and loved at the end. He understood his destiny. Therefore, he had the power and strength to endure an amazingly difficult last two weeks of his life. Metaphorically, even if you don’t believe the bible story, you can see that from the worst situation, he found his power and connection to the Divine. He rose from his earth body and was embraced by Divine Love and Angels.

This, too, can happen for you at any given moment, when you choose to let go of the noise in your life, those things that you think are important, and focus in on something greater, your divine purpose. 

Here is a prayer to say to discover this unique part of your being:

Divine Love, I know that there is only One Mind in the Universe. This mind is part of me, as I was created by It. My very being has purpose. My life has purpose. Everyday of my life is leading me to that Divine Light that will show me the way to peace. I pray that my heart will open, this moment, to this love. At the same time, I release all that no longer serves me. I give Spirit, the angels, and all of the unseen forces of the universe permission to take the reins of my life and guide me to peace beyond understanding. I release this intention and power of my words to the One Infinite Mind, Divine Intelligence, and the Laws of the Universe. And so be it!
