not even sure, really, how i ended up here. a friend had been nagging me for awhile to blog somewhere and share my nonsense with the world... initially, i was looking into the WingMaker material (.us not .com) and was blown away at its depth and simplicity. like many sentiments i've read regarding it. its philosophy still holds the clearest (not rules, more like guidelines) and most open and straightforward perspective on our eartly dilemma as well as the greatest fundamental tenets for religion that i've ever come across. no dogma! no names! no cultural baggage or superstitions and no racial prejudice. or sexist or anything. everyone is invited to follow those three simple suggestions.
so, i found the link at the bottom of the page inviting visitors to explore the conspiracy of how the information was hijacked and mis-appropriated... which, i know it wasn't and i've read all the follow-ups to that drama. the funny thing is, it REALLY wasn't. those three simple tenets are still free and open to anyone. the rest is just stage dressing. true, there may be some greater application of the art and emotional expression underlying it, and i am going to be exploring that more, as well.
i went back to it after feeling some drama on this site about people being right or wrong in their PERSONAL views and a lot of prevalent fear-based postings and some choosing not to acknowledge other voices speaking up trying to alleviate fear (not very well, obviously) and offer other ways to look at or handle information. and reading through the WM philosophy again made it all so clear to me and was a breath of fresh air before diving into this... again.
our minds are great tools to INTERFACE with this experience and fun toys to play games with, but they do not hold the key to ANYTHING. we are in a school of learning to control and balance our energies, and it is a school of EMOTION. feelings and the movement of energies. not allowing them to stagnate or shoot out uncontrollably. and how we relate to one another and the world. of MAJOR importance. how we are treating and acting/reacting toward it ALL. and guess what the single most inhibiting factor to that balance is? FEAR. and you are all RIGHT. they have done a good job of globally disempowering the people and instilling fear into almost every aspect of our lives. it has WORKED. so, we figured that out. now what?
i joined this site to experiment with sharing IDEAS with other people interested in opening up their minds and challenging what they thought was possible. and that means not reacting to every irritating or supposedly threatening concept or news item or way of life. so, i need to do that first. my grandmother (and probably many others') told me when i was young "if you don't have anything good/nice to say, then don't say anything at all". love that quote. of course, i haven't lived by it, but i'm trying harder all the time. i can be quite harsh and judgmental. it's part of my nature. conditioned by the stars and planetary wanderers, it is me since birth. but i CAN choose how i express that, and also choose not to. i have other channels for that energy, as well. that gift/curse and strength/weakness of mine has other applications in that i have a SEVERE discernment. of inherent worth or usefulness. this will come in handy as the years go on, and i try to co-create another scenario with some that are actually ABLE to do that.
anyhow... blah, blah, blah. i URGE EVERYONE to reread the WM philosophy once in awhile, just to clear things up a bit. it truly is a load-lightener. and reminds me what to stay focused on.
and to the other free thinkers out there... let's play! let's create something new and dynamically harmonic to help ground the cosmic forces even now accelerating our growth toward... what? it could be wonderful!
love to all and hope you are all getting outside these days as life reawakens to greater possibilities...
