In quiet contemplation we sit and experience the world we think it is. Worldwide we are faced with #lockdown and ‘think’ we are knowledgeable on the terrain which faces us collectively. Yet for each being the ‘truth’ is but a reflection of perception and not knowledge.
Innately we are pure beings with a direct connection to purity and wholeness, we KNOW that but choose to necessarily not remember it, instead we look outwards, expecting to control our future based on past experience becoming oblivious to the present as it plays out, feeling but a victim of the ‘conditions’ we find ourselves in… wondering how can they do it when all the while, ‘they’ didn’t, we did.
The resultant behavior becomes erratic as we sway between love and fear, attack or compliance, peace or chaos and light or darkness. Everyone and everything around you seems to be manic, insane possibly delusional. In this misperception we validate the insanity of the world AND VALUE IT, making it true for us. Anxiety builds as life unfolds, surely not of our doing???
Over time in our quarantine, our sense of isolation solidifies, and for that matter life becomes a demonstration of illusions, as we separate further in defensive stance, we buy into the mantra of: “What is this world coming to?”
