All manifestations of Life arise, thrive and dissolve in accordance to their diverse meanings; and the meaning of each manifestation is in relationship to the whole of Life. Thus, a woman manifests in relationship to a particular man and the unique babies they generate, as well as the entire process of Nature. As a woman accepts semen and an egg accepts sperm in the conception of new life, the Earth receives the Sun in warming the seeds hidden beneath Her soils in the conception of plants and animals. The process of conception of a human being mirrors the conception of life on a planetary and cosmic scale. These are the facts of life.
The meaning of Life is in relationship to everything else. Our breathing exists in relationship to the Earth's atmosphere. We breathe out carbon dioxide while breathing in oxygen. The green creatures of the Earth; grasses, trees, and plants, meanwhile, breathe in the carbon dioxide we and other mammals breathe out and convert the carbon dioxide into the oxygen we breathe in. This process helps to maintain a healthy balance upon the Earth, which we, in our arrogance and lack of connection to Nature, are destroying by releasing more carbon dioxide than a healthy, life-sustaining planet can absorb.
Our alienation is our not being in touch with and living out our meaning in life, which is in relationship to the welfare of the planet in which we participate. Instead, we have become a cancerous growth. Cancer by definition is growth gone wild. This is exactly what human beings have become. We are normal, healthy cells that have become sick in their growth-gone-wild orientation. Thus the corporations scream: "Growth without end! There is no end to our profitability. We shall rule the world."
As the spread of cancer destroys its host's body in taking it over, so also, we are destroying the Earth. Our skies, our waters, and our lungs are being poisoned by us. We are cells in the body of the Earth that exhibit the mentality of growth without end. In so doing, we are destroying ourselves and our cells. We are cells of the Earth attacking Herself. As a cancerous growth dies when the human body dies, then so shall humanity"if we do not wake up to what we have become.
If one accepts this premise, then the question becomes, can a cancerous growth awaken to itself and decide to stop? Perhaps this is the result of a cancerous growth stopping on its own? Who is to say? The point is, we do have self-awareness and we can look at the effects of our behavior on our Mother's body, ultimately our body too. We have the capacity to look beyond self to the greater Self. We can cease being cancerous cells and become healthy functioning cells in the planetary body. Indeed, perhaps we can evolve into a more advanced level of being? Perhaps we can even learn to penetrate the depths of space by going more deeply into ourselves and kindling our power to travel without mechanical technology? Who is to say what powers lie latent within us?
Perhaps it is as Christ said to His followers upon His working miracles: "You shall do works greater than these." Notice that the miracles of Christ did not come from any new fangled technology. No I-pods or computers for Christ. His power came from within Himself. He knew with His whole heart and mind that "The Father and I are one." Thus Christ was known as the incarnate Sophia of God. "Mother and I are also one." To awaken, simply know your name in the slot where "I" is written in these two identical statements. Indeed, know your real name as the unspeakable, I AM.
Why unspeakable? It is simply because as an eye cannot see itself without a mirror to gaze into, the Self, Nature cannot see Her/His Self without the manifest world.
It is to that immanent as well as eminent God who conceived us, not some external mechanized god that we invent, to whom we shall turn. But, as Christ had to come against the powers of Rome and the organized church of His day, then we shall be confronted by Rome turned Washington DC and its spiritual ruler, Wall Street, and many of the organized churches in this day and age. We, too, will have to overturn the tables of the money changers. Indeed, the right-winged Christians supporting the elite are nothing more than puppets being manipulated for the profit of the upper classes. "Divide and conquer!" The right-winged zealots are nothing more than pawns in an evil scheme. And the left wingers are nothing more than the other side of the same body. Divide and conquer: "Keep dem dar left leaning, whiny snot noses entertained by CNN and the right winged twinkle toed flat landers stupifid by Fox while we reap havoc upon the planet and enslave them according to OUR will." This is the hidden motto of the corporate world.
Divide and conquer, roll it over your tongue as you flip through your cable channels. As you begin to suckle your "boob tube," recite the mantra, "flip off not through!" Meanwhile, reclaim the sacred essence of Mother Nature's breasts in your waking up. Her milk alone contains the chemistry of awakening.
Are we ready to face the wrath of these people hidden behind the flimsy curtain? As Christ Himself said, we must be willing to take the cross fashioned by the dominate culture as He did. Yes, even many of those that call themselves Christians will be revealed as the anti-Christ (i.e., those that do not embrace Love) in this act of unfolding peace. Indeed, there will be no Christians as the power of Christ manifests. The Hindu, the Buddhist, the Pagan, the Native American shall all be known as one in their diversity. A new St. Paul will have to teach us anew that Jesus lived, not just for the Jews, but for all humankind, and, beyond that even, for all creatures and all creation. In knowing this, you will also know that even in the simple act of breathing that YOU, yes YOU, live for the sake of the entire planet.
It is your knowing this that peace shall arise. And, it is only through the end of self-righteous arrogance that this shall take effect. It is also in this peace that you will realize that you; yes you, are the One you've been waiting for.
Can you, can we let go of our philosophies, religions and theoretical positions in the embrace of All? Indeed, in this world of letting go of "ologies" and "isms", even an Atheist can dance with the various religions of the world. What is theology if not a philosophical statement? Perhaps the philosopher and "Christian" mystic, Goethe, was right on target when he said, "Give them the stone of Sophia (Wisdom) and you'll find philosophy gone, and what's left? The stone!"
While Goethe may be listed as a Christian mystic, he is not Christian. He is Goethe on the surface and beyond name in his depths. As it is for Goethe, so it is for all of us. As the ancient Jews were not to speak the name of God as Yahweh (I AM), then we will find our true name (which is the same), as being unspeakable. Why is that? It is simply because who we are in our nudity is beyond reference. The Referencer can never be referenced. Thus it is that an eye cannot see itself".except through a mirror. This is why God becomes a "M-Other." The "Other" is simply Her mirror. Imagine if Republican -- Democrat; Liberal and Conservative; Left and Right; began seeing opposition in such a fashion?
This is simply THE cosmic law that we have not realized yet, but which has been spoken in statements like, "love thy enemy as thyself" or "judge not lest ye be judged." Oppositions are simply mirror images. Those you detest are reflections of yourself. Right winged benefits hating Republicans and whinny we want to remain dependent upon sociopaths that design our benefits and welfare system need to see themselves reflected in each other's eyes.
The ultimate uniting point for both of these, liberal and conservative, is the continuation of our dependence upon government and corporations that own pretty much the entire world. Conservatives are not about lessening dependence on government by cutting taxes and benefits. They are about supporting enslavement of the people by megalithic corporate powers.
