Oh, sure, the Bad Guys are still around, what else is new? But their days are numbered. There are just too many of us Good Guys who out-number them.
It’s up to us what we want to focus on. Do we want to focus on fear, or joy? There is plenty to be afraid of, always has been. As long as we have existed on this earth we have had to fret about the weather, fret about the hunting and the crops or the guy in charge. And definitely fret about our neighbors who might invade. These are old fears. They go with the territory.
I am moved to share about this today for two reasons. One, because despite the unbearable losses for the people of Japan and immanent fears of more destruction, we hear stories of goodness. Stories of sharing and politeness/respect for one another, assuring us that the best qualities of human nature are alive and well no matter what the outer circumstances.
And two, because I’m more aware than ever how generous people are, how willing they are to give freely of their knowledge and expertise. It’s like we have this inborn awareness that when our boat rises, everyone else’s boat rises too.
My simple example today was when I needed advice on how to do something. Friends are always helpful (that’s why they’re friends) – but what happens when you perceive the world in general as your friend? It’s beginning to feel like that with the web. Instant friendships on social media, but then all these other helpful sites have sprung up in recent years. Sites that tell you the hows and whats and whys of a thing, plus tons of free viewing and listening etc.
Boundaries are disappearing—on all sorts of levels. I remember in the mid-1980s how this new idea was taking hold—that the center was everywhere. Where you are right now—that’s the center of it all.
And it’s probably more than a decade old, though I don’t recall hearing it before 2000, that there’s really only ONE of us, and the rest is a hologram – or something like that. I don’t exactly get it, but that hardly matters. I get it well enough. Because I get that Time is an illusion, so Space has to be as well. And my powers of visualization are developed enough for me to ‘see’ energy, and ‘see’ light, and ‘see’ and experience different dimensions at once.
It’s true what they say, that we create our own reality, and we co-create our own reality. And we’ve chosen to be here now. And it’s all in the mind. And the feelings will take you farther than the mind ever could. And Love is all there is. And Light too, of course.
And take it from me, in case you weren’t sure, we have backup. We have always had backup. The cavalry has been sent for and they have arrived. They’ve been here for ages already. And they’re still coming. New reinforcements arrive daily.
The beauty of it is, well, the beauty of it.
And what all this has to do with Art, is how the arts teach us to envision. That saying, “Without vision the people perish,” means that we have to envision the future, imagine what’s next. This is good for survival purposes. But on another level, it also means that when people have no vision, they create nothing lasting, like art for instance. So they leave nothing for us future beings to know them by. And so, they perish. Because it’s like they’ve never been…
So Hail to the Good Guys, and the Masters of Creation…always creating Good.
From a grateful soul.
