It’s ALL Backwards by Bryan Moss

 

 Concerning 3D life in general, everything’s backwards.
                        COLLECTIVE SOCIETY / THE MAJORITY:
 We’re raised to believe ‘blood is thicker than water’, ‘put your loved ones before yourself’, ‘only professionals can help you’, ‘plan every step into the future, that’s the only way to succeed’, ‘you need to force your way to get results’, ‘life’s goal is enlightenment’, ‘the powers to be have your best interest in mind’, ‘don’t reflect on the past, just move ahead’, ‘showing anger and sadness isn’t being spiritual’, ‘standing your own ground is being selfish’, ‘worry about what others think of you’, ‘war and violence is part of being human’, ‘your “higher power” is only “out there” somewhere’, ‘you have to prove yourself “worthy” to be loved by your “higher power”, ‘only others can give you approval’, ‘meditation is for yogas and monks’, ‘go with the crowd’, ‘ignore your past’, ‘agree to do everything’, ‘you need to figure it out’, ‘an eye for an eye is the only justice there is’, ‘everybody is out to get you’……
                      THE AWAKENED WARRIOR:
 …realizes taking care of one’s needs first, so she/he has a balanced life, is a good solid base to start with. If you put others before yourself, energetically you risk falling apart physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually because you’re all ‘spent’. Then what good are you for them, or for yourself, to begin with?  Taking time to consolidate one’s energy is the first step on one’s journey. Once that foundation is established you can then decide whom to help when and where.
 The A.W. (Awakened Warrior) has learned expending his/her energy on ‘planning ahead’ and ‘mapping out every single step’ is wasted energy. The A.W. welcomes the journey of the unknown. Knowing that life is energy in different forms and it’s always changing, the A.W. embraces the unknown knowing it is useless to try to control any outcome.
 The A.W. realizes the force that created her/him is the same force within their Hearts, thus not having to give away any power and energy to anyone or thing ‘out there’. They know that any answer required is always carried within the divinity of the Heart.
 The A.W. walks in humbleness and gratefulness knowing any power required resides within the Heart’s loving chambers. Coming from there, the A.W. is never ashamed, guilty, or afraid to shed a tear in sadness or joy. Being able to express the Truth, when it is felt that Truth needs to be expressed, becomes a habit.
 The Awakened Warrior recognizes the loving soul in everyone, no matter how f____d up they may appear to be.
 The A.W. knows that “everything is perfect the way it is” and doesn’t have to use force of any type, for the power and wisdom of the Creator’s Heart is boundless and patient.
 The A.W. realizes it isn’t about going on the journey to achieve anything (hello? does that new agey word<cough> ‘enlightenment’ ring a bell?).
 The goal ISN’T enlightenment. The goal IS the journey.
 The A.W. learns to transmute any hurt and pain into lessons of wisdom. That being said, the A.W. embraces looking into the childhood years in order to reframe those experiences, as needed, to continue to grow on the journey. For she/he knows that to ignore those childhood experiences will only continue to bring more pain in the future and prevent any further spiritual growth. The A.W. knows not to be hard on her/his self as they realize any misgivings unto others, or one’s self, they created in the past.
 The Awakened Warrior has learned that the key to true love and knowledge is meditating, feeling, and enacting from her/his Heart. When the crowd panics and starts to run, the A.W. BREATHES, remains CALM, and quietly walks the other way. Nothing to fear. Nothing to hide. Choice and actions from the Heart are effortless and clear.
The Awakened Warrior’s true sword is her/his Heart. The A.W.’s true power is stillness and reflection.
 The CON JOB: As we grow up, we’re programmed to think like the Majority/Collective Society (Matrix) via their political, economical, religious and electronic programming. It’s all designed to let us be taken care of by ‘them’. You’re expected to ask no questions. You’re expected to rely on others and slowly give away any responsibility you were created to enjoy. And before you know it you have given up any power you could of claimed your own.
 PAY ATTENTION: The Awakened Warrior comes to realize if your interested in being truly free:
 EVERYTHING Is Backwards. Think about it.

July message of the Month – Independence and Freedom

by Shiela Reed

Independence and Freedom

I woke the morning of July 5th 2018 to thoughts of independence and freedom and what that means. It seems like it should be a simple concept, one that you would think we would all have a similar definition for.  But just as most things do, there are often multiple layers.

I was thinking about the different feelings that came up with these words and I became aware that while there is an individual component, there must also include some form of a connection to the collective and others.
I couldn’t help but think about what this looks like for different people as well as different groups of people. Even in how we believe individually that we are or are not connected to others.

This seems to be what happens every day in our lives. The ebb and flow of personal interaction with self and others. All based on our current views. But what does independence for me or you look like? What does freedom look like? How does that shape our environment and the world we live in? Is there a difference in how we define independence and freedom vs how others do? What would it look like in our world if we were always looking for what we are not getting or how we are always wronged by others? Or if we looked at what we already have and appreciated it and how people are doing their best and not out to hurt us?

This really makes me think about what I contribute to my day based on how I’m defining terms that seem like we would all agree on, but I realize we don’t. Then what?
Does one person’s idea/desire/definition of independence and freedom restrict another? Does it have to? How do we know?
I find that I struggle with this just like many people I’m sure. I bring it up as something to ponder, not as if I have an answer. It’s actually pretty heavy to think about, which may be why some just stay within their own views and do not consider that their definition may be in direct opposition to someone else’s definition.

I then ended up thinking about how individually – beyond this life time – we end up having “independence and freedom” from this world/body/the physical – yet we are currently a part of a whole and collective and there is likely a more “universal” definition which maybe we do not or cannot fully see.   After all, as we live among others, there is an underlying natural need to be connected and supported. However if we end up choosing to break that down into smaller and smaller “groups”, we risk missing a level of deeper connection and purpose… that which reaches the depths of our true soul/self and divine creation.

Maybe this is another piece of what we will “know” on the other side… in the meantime I am reminded that we are all just trying to make it and doing the best we can, so if we add a little compassion for others, we are bound to feel it in return.  And in the end we hopefully remember that what we focus on grows and realize it’s important to make note of what feels right in our heart and when something doesn’t, we can acknowledge it and lovingly release it – letting it go past us without holding it.
For me this is where independence lives and true freedom begins.

Peace and Blessings
