Just not feeling it
I’m just not feeling it today. Today, my heart is mostly closed, my thoughts and emotions are a bit unruly, my focus is off, my connection to Spirit is … ignored (it’s probably the best word to use right now). Through recent events in my physical microcosm, I find myself disappointed in humanity today. It is not their fault. They truly do not know what they do, nor do they realize just how entrenched in mistaken perceptions of reality and life and living that they are –and I know this!– but I find myself less forgiving and less compassionate of them and their situation than I usually am… and a lot less than I endeavor to be, always.
I’m tired of having to fight against the tide… tired of fighting against the cultural conditioning and warped expectations or understandings that so many humans seem to embrace and then, to the detriment of everyone, project as solid reality. Their reality is wrong. And it’s not just wrong, it’s absolutely backwards, and worse – it’s detrimental to the overall development and spiritual/emotional evolution of the species!!
To quote Morpheus from The Matrix
“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it”
And so, I’m tired. And I’m disappointed. And, once in a while at least, I’m allowed to be. After all, I am incarnated here too, and dealing with this reality and the warped perceptions and egos of humanity goes hand-in-hand with my decision to be here. But I want to “smack them up the side of the head” to wake them up to Reality… or I’d even settle for just getting them out of their stupor! But it doesn’t really work that way, does it? *sigh*
Reality -real Reality- is based upon personal responsibility and personal analysis/understanding. It’s also based on Compassion and understanding that we are all aspects of the One. But boy, oh boy, does the human race seem determined to go out of their way to avoid experiencing even a little bit of any of this!
As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love, and then the barriers between people, between religions, between nations will begin to fall. Yes, we have to beat down the separateness.
– Ram Dass
And so, I retreat to my meditation cushion, do some cleansing and healing work, and try to find a little more compassion for those who are entrenched in the system, blinded by it, and perpetuating it.
