Choose Love!



To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your handAnd eternity in an hour.
William Blake



I have always said just say know but now I would like to expand this.  Just say know and then say no.  What do I mean by this?  I mean first we need to wake up to what we call reality.  Think about it. It’s absolutely ludicrous.  Michael Ellener sums it up nicely, “Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.”

Really, stop and look at us.  Look at how we behave on a planet where 10% of the world’s adult population owns 90% of the wealth.  There is more then enough on this planet so that every person can be more then adequately fed, clothed and housed. And, dare I say, live a creative, fulfilling life that goes beyond the simple struggle to survive.

Why does this happen?  To me it seems because we are so enticed and hypnotized by the trappings of stuff and knowledge that we ignore what the heart says. Our perception is manipulated by systems such as Big Politics, Big Pharma, Big Agriculture, Big Media, Big Education dictating to us how we should live life. 

We have been told and taught that life has a start line and a finish line with the carrot of something we call success being dangled just out of reach. But we never do get there because there is no where to get.  We are only told there is somewhere to go, something to get.  



So who or what has perpetrated this insanity? We.  We have allowed ourselves to be brainwashed into believing that we are not infinite consciousness that our worth or value is in what we attain or what we know.  We elect our government to do the will of the people and then we are led around by the noses for the benefit of the few. The few who are actually us.  

What if what we believe is reality is only virtual reality?  Reality is electrical signals decoded by the brain. How we interpret these signals through the perception of our societal learning is how the world appears.  If we are brainwashed to believe this is all there really is we forget that we are infinite consciousness having the experience of this reality. 

Albert Einstein wrote, “Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one.”

Bill Hicks confirms this, “All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration and that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and you are the imagination of yourself”

We are all one.  So let us dance ourselves back into consciousness into heart “knowing.” Let us say no to division of ourselves by false belief of race, colour, sexual orientation, religion, creed, spirituality, nationalism. When we divide and believe in separation we allow ourselves to be manipulated by those who see us as fodder for war, the false illusion of economy, the disease of mindless consumerism. Let us peace ourselves out of war. Let us share what we have. We are all in this together.

I am the only one who can change my mind.  And, you and you and you.  Embrace the mind with the heart.  Infuse how we behave with love and the vastness of our potential. Have a change of heart!  

Express yourself as one consciousness. We are infinite, all-knowing, creative, transcendent  consciousness.  Whole-in-one. We are LOVE. Choose love.
