To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. – Ecclesiastes 3
Welcome to the 15th edition of our Sunday Morning Tune-up! I hope everyone’s windshields are beginning to clear a bit as a result of quieting the mind in meditation and practicing some of the other techniques we’ve discussed. There is a tremendous disturbance in the force, as Obi Wan Kenobi would have said. And if you ain’t feelin’ it, then you may need some more work on your windshields as it were.
The cosmic poop is about to hit the proverbial fan. Freedom and Tyranny are locked in an epic death grip dancing off the pages of Tolkien’s Middle Earth and into the present day!
The days of indifference are truly numbered. The lie has run its course, the thieves are exposed and those in power will do what they must to maintain control.
“Gonna be a twister that blows everything down that ain’t got the strength to stand its ground.”- Springsteen from Badlands. The antidote and best defense is completely counterintuitive! This is the classic flight or fight zone where the body takes over, we tighten up…in our shoulders…make mistakes! Relax, let go…look inward.
The energy of this space reminds me of the scene in the Raiders of the Lost Arc at the very end where Indiana and Marilyn are tied to the post while the Nazi thieves are opening the Arc of the Covenant causing all Hell to break loose. That’s when Indiana turns around and yells to Marilyn, “Close your eyes…don’t look at it!” The other’s whose desire and greed forced them to look, all perished…somewhat reminiscent of Lot’s wife, who was turned into a pillar of salt for pretty much the same reason. (Genesis 19: 1-26)
- · “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20
- · “Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness.” Luke 11:34
I borrowed the biblical passages above from the blog of a gifted writer by the name of Hassan Nurullah in his commentary on the Occupy Wall Street Movement. http://www.freedomtorch.com/blogs/1608/3882/meaningless-occupation
They capture so perfectly the essence of the moment…An entire generation with essentially no knowledge of history may as well have rings in their noses (as some do) to tether them to the Pied Piper Masters who lead them from themselves, dancing and lunging at shadows.
The outer forces will intensify in a bid to push and pull you from your center. The Gold Pushers, Pundits and Zealots from all points of the compass will vie for your subscription! Relax, let go…look inward. To each heart, its own season!
