When the bubble of a false perception pops it can be seen to never have been true, but it was believed and experienced as real. The roots of deception may seem to go very deep in our thinking and yet any deception itself is simply NOT true and pays the COST of truth while it prevails.

Restoring a basis for a true sanity is THE task NOW. True roots can never grow from coercive-mind. We need to observe OUR mind and hold it to true account. To the knowing of the Heart.

Lawlessness, fear and a greater Embrace

(This originally started out as a response to 'Why don't we riot more? on a BBC site. As ever, I look to the underpinnings rather than the effects themselves. There are negative cooperations in which we mitigate or dampen the liabilities of war and conflict that are strategies of self seeking by mutual agreement - yet without any actual joining of heart, any intimacy of life shared). Then there is an idea of law as emanating from an Innate and abiding Wholenes and Sanctity of life - such as the law of Moses - which is not simply utility - but to serve as a stability for a more conscious life in alignment with - rather than in opposition to - revealed truth. Not as revealed or determined by man - but as revealed in the heart of one who trusts beyond their own works or the experience of their own ideas reflected. Practice of such receptivity is spontaneous movement of life - and is not dependent on religious beliefs or concepts - which arise from such pure experience and yet tend to become substitute for realisation. As images that distract from what cannot be defined.

It might seem that the fear rules the world because, ‘getting’ and ‘getting away with and not ‘getting’ caught are secretly enshrined in the heart and mind of man. When getting by force of will meets overwhelming opposition, strategies arise in the mind and evolve - born of the wish to prevail at least temporarily - as a life against overwhelming forces that can not finally be overcome or resolved - except perhaps by death!

But the true Power of love embraces the world, despite all experience of a fearful & coercive self-seeking that blindly attacks its own Source & Self. Its Guidance discerns from a true Peace of wholeness, as the basis of law of sameness, (Golden Rule) and law of oneness (Love). True Law is held in the heart. Coercion undermines heart-trust & ever demands more 'control'. But such insanity calls for healing, not feeding.

IndaUK replied:
If your day job involves writing lyrics for pop stars, well done, keep the words flowing.
I think you'll find, when you look closely, the only law that counts is not God-fearing-love but the law of the jungle. The first law, your golden rule, is eat or be eaten. Feed yourself or you will become food.
The weak have be gnawed to death. The fat will be eaten next.

To IndaUK 89:
Our thoughts are what we currently accept true for us. As we do accept, so do they program our perception and experience. Such fearful 'mind' as you indicate is to be uncovered - but it is a veneer of confusion that can be undone; healed, If you will. Apart from Love's reality, there can only be the mad scramble to 'get from' or avoid being deprived, even if civilly managed. Mind can deceive!

When life happens different than we expect, we seek to ‘regain control' by our thinking. But what IS to happen is NOT under our thinking-control, which reactively reenacts 'old tapes' BUT we can respond truly from a present discernment of life as it is. Everything in the ego-mind works to AVOID being still and simply knowing - such as to live out from a shared presence of life. A Prodigal waste!

Reality beyond magic (response to article: 'The Magic of Reality' by Richard Dawkins

Qualities of be-ing - such as awe, beauty, wonder - and indeed love in its root sense of oneness with - are not the realm of science - but of course the practice of science is in a context of intimacy - because being is an Intimacy that cannot be defined.

Because our mind does define reality - in its own imaged symbol and concept - we have identification with our definitions. I am this - I am not that.

This psychological self is a fundamental to all else that comes forth. Like a big bang it 'splits' Unified Singularity into an experience of apparent division, in which awareness seems to be locked into - or existing AS - a mind predicated upon selection or judgement. The psychological self of such a mind is associated with a will or focus of control that can be called 'survival'. It is outwardly oriented toward objects - including the seemingly private objects of its own thought. It cannot 'know' of what is forever beyond its capacity, that is it cannot know of the innate qualities of Be-ing - but that it is suspended or temporarily unemployed.

You are infinitely more than your thought could ever define or 'know', for you are the awareness in which All experience occurs. But this is not the psychological 'you' - but you as Expression of Universal Awareness.

We cannot turn the source of awareness back upon itself, but we can look at the objects that arise in awareness - and so we study 'the world'. But the apparatus we are looking WITH may colour and distort the findings - as a lens darkly.

So science is an attempt to uncover truth uncoloured by wishful or manipulative stories. But in doing so it separates the observer from the observed and reduces its remit to the most gross of phenomena.

Of course there is a value in using 'as if' to conjecture, test and apply or incorporate findings, but 'as if' is not the nature and truth of awareness Itself.

Science must be of true service to humanity and not merely of utility to vested interests - if it is to hold the allegiance in the hearts of those who do feel the desire to serve and honour life.

The capacity to act out the mode of conflicted competition is not our original nature. I say this because I know that there is a love of truth that abides in a communion with that which is forever Alive beyond definition - whatever symbols or stories we may or may not use as our attunement.

I look to discern as best I may - that which is of true service to us all. To do this necessitates suspending or putting aside the personal investments of the psychological self that is forever seeking to validate and support itself in differentiation.

Writing as I do, is attempting to communicate from a different presumption of self and so is defended against by the mind that is certain that it thinks it knows. Of myself I make no particular claim - but of a sense of love and beauty and wonder I am willing to reach out.

The blindness of man is that he thinks he is what he thinks he is -  self validates in mutual agreements - but forever finds difference and opposition and makes overcoming this his 'meaning' in life. But Meaning - (Unified Singularity) preexists even the thought 'I".

Thank you for your attention.
