At 29, I asked my mother,
“How does it feel to have children?
You are my mother, what is that like?”
She gave me a beautiful explanation of love for myself and my brothers and sisters…
Then she said, “Why did you ask that?”
Astounded at her question, I replied,
“I want to feel that way toward everyone.”

Thou shalt love thy internal God, and thy neighbor as thy Self.

-The Aquarian Message by Samael Aun Weor

None of us need to strengthen the intellect,
yet that is what everyone wants to do.
That is the weakness of modern humanity:
the intellect is already too developed.
Yet, people mistakenly think it is their greatest asset.
The reality is: that is our greatest weakness.

Basically, the intellect ruled by all of our desires without a spiritual foundation has made a complete mess of humanity and the world.

Messages along our Peace Walk

Sitting beside me, a Buddhist nun from Japan told me that I look like Mozart during dinner tonight at a church dinner.
I said, “Ah, yes, the composer; he created beautiful music.”
She said, “Yes.”
That was it.
End of dinner talk.
It was the most dispassionate, disinterested complement I’ve ever witnessed, merely a comparative observation she pointed out.
Like, look at the flower, but don’t run over to smell it, and definitely never pick it.

Some photos from our “Walk for Peace and a Sustainable Future” to protest a 4-6 Billion Dollar military base Congress and the Pentagon want to put in Rangeley, Maine, for supposed “missile defense.”

HelloThere won’t be many posts in the next 11 days because I will be joining the Maine Veterans for Peace and the Monks from the Nipponzan Myohoji order for their 120 mile “Walk for Peace and a Sustainable Future.”
I’ll share what I can when I can, and share how people feel about creating weapons to destroy each other, and then defend it by calling it “part of the the economy.”
Buddha taught that one of the 5 unwholesome vocations was creating weapons. So, we shouldn’t be making them and profiting off them. It only makes suffering.

When I say “Hi” to anyone, it really means, “I Love You.” At least I want it to.
In that compassionate way, like, “Hi, I Love You, I wish eternal joy and peace for you and everyone you know and your family, I wish I could know you forever and see you excel at everything and help countless people and never lack necessities and learn and display many talents…”
“Hi” should mean instead “I Love You.”
Like how I feel when I gasp when I see a miracle.
That is how I feel when I see other people.
But we are scared of saying that, like, it’s creepy to say it.
“Hi, I Love You, I want to know you forever. We’re all created by God and this life is uttlery amazing and astounding and I want to see how amazing you are too. You can be more and more amazing just like every new sunset I watch and contemplate God.”
Do we really not know Love so much so that we can’t say “I Love You” in some sort of greeting?
Like, we have to meet a person and learn things about them, judge them, or “make up our minds” about them, whether or not we like them or they will be a part of our lives or not…and then much later decide intellectually that we might love them.
So we just say, “Hi,” and love is delayed.
Delaying love, and not being amazed by life, and just saying hi to someone, as if they are just a falling leaf from a tree….isn’t that completely insane?
We are alive. This is a MIRACLE. I love you, I have to.
But we say, “Hi.”
Maybe it is that genuine smile after saying “hi” is that which silently says, “I Love You.”
That kind of I Love You that is an homage to miracles, like Life, which is always present when anyone says, “Hi.”
We need to learn how to talk.
— This makes sense to me, I wonder if I communicated it well.

The sun’s dying hour is the most vulnerable time of day. It is so beautiful.

Bill Murray has insight on who he is and who we are.
From an interview:
“But there’s a lot that I am not doing that I need to do.”

Specifically? (interviewer)

“Just something like working on yourself or self-development or something … becoming more connected to myself,” Murray said, getting deep. “I don’t have a problem connecting with people. My [issue] is connecting with myself. If I am not really committing myself to that, then it’s better that I don’t have a different person.”

Asked what has stopped him from committing to himself, Murray continued, “What stops [any of] us is we’re kinda really ugly if we look really hard. We’re not who we think we are. We’re not as wonderful as we think we are. It’s a little bit of a shock … it’s hard.”

Very much the Truth, a very honorable confession.

When we think about enlightenment, “I wish to become enlightened…,” we have to know what we are enlightening.
That knowing will be the enlightenment.
What are we going to enlighten? Who we are now?
Do you think you, yourself, your personality, is the thing that is going to be enlightened?
It’s not. That thing, who you are now, is not a product of light, but of darkness.
So, you are going to get rid of the darkness and become something more bright, awake; Conscious.
The Consciousness becomes enlightened.
Not your terrestrial self.
If you awaken the terrestrial self with ego, for desire, that is awakening negatively, for evil.
Half of me, is half of you; I ran away, so you would know.
And half of me is half of you; I wonder why, I let you go.
You’re everything I left behind !
You’re everything that I can’t find !
It’s a mountain in the hole, mountain in our hearts.
It’s a mountain in the hole, mountain in our hearts

"The split of the sexes was the most tragic event that ever happened to human beings."

Tears are the only soothing bath for me, the sinner.
"I" had a dream recently, a simple example of how dreams are important for radical transformation and Self knowledge(Gnosis):
——-
I was talking to a man in a comfortable setting, and all was well, cozy, in a nice home, with some familiar people: until I found out about the drugs.
I got up immediately to leave, wanting no part in anything there.
Not wanting to be exposed, the man got his shot gun and shot me in the back as I tried to walk out the door.
When I was down I was shot again.
I looked and saw the holes in me, and felt the pain, like stings.
——-
While still in bed I resolved myself to visualize the dream again, but to analyze it more, and ask for help.
I came to the realization that my “myself,” my “me,” my ego, will always have plenty of empty, seemingly beautiful promises, and when I confront it directly, it will fight back.
I stupidly think that my life with ego is okay, and comfortable.
I should always turn my back on what it wants.
Right when I saw exactly how perverse it was, I abandoned it, so it attacked me.
This is my own ego attacking me, the higher “me,” whatever I’ve built of soul.
This is just more comprehension to continue the killing of the false “I.”
We know we are doing it right when we are attacked.
It tries to scare us because it doesn’t want to die.
We know we are doing it right when we refuse to act according to it’s will.
— We have to know the “I” if we wish to eliminate it.
