Owl's thoughts in February 2011
Playing: 'Melancholy Man'
By: The Moody
I awoke this morning feeling quite disappointed; disappointed in the vast majority
of my human relations. Many of the brothers and sisters I walk this Earth Walk
with have lost their connection with and/or dedication to Great Spirit, God, or
whatever you wish to call the highest power of the universe, but I guess
I can be thankful for the few that have not.
course this is only my opinion and I am aware that everything is happening as it
needs to, but what I am experiencing and seeing is many people I know, some who
consider themselves 'spiritual', spending a lot of time, consciousness, and
energy on frivolous fears, desires, and social duties as opposed to following
their 'BLISS' (see Joseph Campbell's Quote on the home page).
I sit to write this I have so many thoughts and things I want to say racing around
that it is difficult for me to get it out and I'm sure some would think I should
just leave it inside or bury it and hide it from everyone. I can even hear some
saying it is just my own shit and I should deal with it.
those who are spending a lot of time on their computer, they are mostly playing
facebook application games; sharing desirous or emotional videos and music
videos; and chatting about unimportant rubbish. Again it is just my opinion and
many people don't consider my opinion as being worthy of consideration; after
all I'm spending quite a lot of time on the computer too, and it is beginning to
feel like it is wasted time, but I know in my heart and soul that I must
continue to do whatever I can to help awaken my human brothers and sisters about
what is important; Spirit.
am disappointed that I have put a lot of work into creating and maintaining a
spiritual forum only to find that most people are too busy with facebook and
having fun to participate in spiritual discussions on my forum. I have also
noticed that a lot of people even go to spiritual gatherings as a fun and social
event. I grant you that we are very social beings and getting together and
sharing experiences is an important part of being human, but these social events
must be meaningful in connecting the physical forms (our bodies) with Spirit.
forum was created as a place where people can share their connection with Spirit
and discuss the things that really matter; sharing and gaining more
understanding of Spirit and the many forms and rituals we can use to manifest
and experience Spirit that the mind can only analyse and think about. This sort
of sharing is very important, for as the great Holy Man Fools Crow has said: "The survival
of the world depends upon our sharing what we have and working together. If we
don't, the whole world will will die. First the planet, and next the people... The
ones who complain and talk the most about giving away medicine secrets are
always those who know the least." And
I would like to add that those who ask for money in return as a condition for
sharing their knowledge also know the least.
am also disappointed with the way our social system treats its
people and the injustices that happen, but this is based on my
personal experiences that I won't go into here; I'll just say that
my van is still off the road. But I will say that stating the
situation to 'the authorities' is all we can do; if we fight them we
just end up in battle. I think I have mentioned the tug-of-war
before; and no war can be won by waging war; as much as I'm tempted
to fight for my rights and the rights of others as I see suffering at
the hands of 'the system'. I'll just continue to state my case and
turn the other cheek I guess. And I'll continue to do my best to
live my Bliss as an Earth Person and share my experiences and what I
have learnt about life from them.
