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.
Yet, in the world of Nature, the world is owned by no one. Hierarchy and linear order is ultimately found grounded in chaos. As the ancients knew, Chaos is the Mother of the Universe. Surrender to Her scares us to death. Why? It is simply because we can't let go of our conditioned ways in allowing ourselves to unfold a new world.
