The beauty of Sacred Stone Camp, Standing Rock North Dakota. Put your hands up for something you believe. Water is LIFE, Water is SACRED.
The road of feelings, how goes your journey into darkness of self anger arising when one soul craves to feel joy? These feelings, emotions, all sacred, all equal, in the duality world. What to do with feelings of anger, hate from what feels deep within as untruths or alternative facts? How does one find a way to joy in the mind of the collective unconscious, unconscious to itself. As the poet William Blake writes, “nature is imagination itself”. If one is not connected or fails to see the interconnectedness to an internal and external nature, how does the collective unconsciousness of the human species wake up to its own imagination? Emotions these feelings that arise that I want to separate from do they make me a part of nature separated from itself?
Are you a person that is awake to feelings? Can you embrace even the most uncomfortable ones, express and in the expression find a way into the mystery of duality. Can I watch destruction of sacred elements of life being raped, hurt and have the strength to feel? Is feeling all – ways the way to joy and bliss,? When I march do I march in anger and fear or do I march and stand for love? So let this anger be loved let what I see as hate fear and greed be seen felt inside me so that I made love deeper.
I am reminded of a tiny blue pamphlet I was given the story of the peace Pilgrim a woman in her 50s who put down all attachment to things, no car, no suitcase, no house or home. She marched out of her comfort into the walk of the present moment to carry only what her pockets could carry. Giving the world the gift of her self, secure in the message of peace. Cared for in all ways for what she needed. Not needing or fearing what she needed, trusting to have all that in the moment.
As a world today is it a world of love or fear? If you focus on the politics of our time the answer feels fearful. If you focus on the "imagination of nature" it feels like love.
Is the time of love upon me? To love what arises as Matt Kahn would say. So when my feelings of anger for the hurting of the very nature within ourselves that could lie, injure, rape or pillage is seen and shown is now the time to act out of love, to be brave enough to feel what the world wants to separate from? To embrace the duality is to involve our collective to fight against nothing, no matter what or how horrific the feeling. Do you feel and love and choose love through the emotion of hate, anger and fear to walk towards the freedom of duality? I see the opening in the clouds a new light is shining, embrace the duality and choose to walk the new light, as light as a pilgrim.
