Being

I am, due to the universe being. Who would I be if there were no universe to uphold my being? I am but a snapshot of a pebble already in decay. My comfort and home resides in the universe being. Being manifests in me to see how far it has come. From unity springs division, and from division unity is reborn. There is never a moment you aren’t a reflection of the universe being. See through the facade of change and see what remains. Inexplicably we are all sharing the burden of being. One is not the decaying flesh you see, but awareness intention in action. Life must be lived for universal good. No amount of delusional abstractions of divisions will ever unite the thread of the universe’s being that gives us all this very breath. Until you can want love and opportunity for progress for all, you are perpetuating division. One must respect the awareness that pervades all being while allowing presence for the uniqueness of singular awareness. Until we can all be humanists seeking to uplift universal being, then our ideas of progress will always self destruct.

I Hate That You Hate Yourself

Why are you sad? The truth is hard to swallow. You’re overtraining to try to fight the past. Burnt out of self hatred. Can’t fake another smile. All my muscles ache in defeat, and I’m left with just this one breath. Doubt whispers what’s wrong with me. Anger screams I hate you. Sadness cries in loneliness. But deep down it’s the bottom of a well. It’s been darkness for years, I forgot what light looks like. Last breath, might as well enjoy it. Negativity, has it ever helped me? You don’t need to hate yourself anymore. They all could be the last one. Ultimately, the only valuable thing in life is what I am experiencing in this one breath.

Whatever It Is

How can I be the one who joyfully appreciates all that I have, while just as easily resentfully remembering all that I hate with this existence? What are all these images that I compare my living reality to? How many times must I tare myself apart to fit my idol? Will my darkness ever let this breath be enough? Or will I be convinced that the last speck won’t let me see through the window of being? Will I only see my weakness, because I can’t see my strength? Will I ever allow myself worthiness amidst deserving nothing? Can I even do so? Whatever it is, how shall I balance the dichotomy of being? Will intending good ever mean enough? Whatever it will be, time will consume all my intentions.

Influence

I wonder of all that influences me. Can I ever know all that influences me? Can one know absolute clarity? If not, what gives us the inclination to speak and act so vehemently for truth. How can we do so if we can never know absolute truth? See the puppet strings that have brought you to now. Abandon them all if they weren’t truths you have come to know. If you have not known it to be truth, then you have no creedence to speak it or act it. You are sinning against yourself if you can’t break down all your suppositions and recreate them with truth. Have you chosen what influences you, or has the ecological environment done that for you every time you attempted to learn something? Your environment always influences you through the presence of your being. Your choice is taking knife to bone to cut out all the lies, or just lay and whimper as an infection spreading a virus of lies because you didn’t think through to distinguish truth from lies.

The Point

The point is here and now! Be aware and allow this breath to animate every cell of your being. You can’t travel to any point along the line of time, there is no line of time. It’s always just this point, this here and now. Awareness only awakens in the present. You can’t awaken in the past or future, these are just concepts. You can’t breathe in the past or future. Being is a present activity. Can you see appreciate the present that is here and now? Can you see that the point is only to live this breath with good? You have no other battle, but to choose good in this moment. Always coming to back to self here and now. The point is to be aware that you are in the here and now. Witness in wonder, the awareness of all that transpires, and revel in the awareness of being aware.

Friendly Fire

People say it’s a tragedy when a fellow soldier accidentally kills a fellow soldier. Is it not the same when a human kills another human? Death comes for all, let death earn it’s life. We need not be a catalyst to waste human potential as a gift to death. Is nature’s antagonism not enough of an opponent for the collective consciousness that is humanity? What if self could see self in other? To see other as a reflection of self. I am you, and you are me in the reflection of consciousness. Our vessels perish, but consciousness reawakens with another perspective of infinity. All perspectives are true and real. Each perspective has it’s own unique wisdom. Consciousness must be united if there can be good. We all need to breathe this breath. We’re not that different.

Substance

A human doesn’t have to die in order to become the universe. Universe is the substance of a human, a human is already the universe. No one is born and no one dies. The substance of being is non being. Don’t remain in your relative viewpoint. See the absolute viewpoint that is the totality of the universe. This is the substance of your being. There is no place and no time where you are not connected to the universe. You are the infinite looking through the one, in the infinity of being. Don’t just look through your eyes, look through the eyes of the universe and see the expanse of the infinite and expanding spacetime. By the fact of your being, the universe has declared you substantial. Choose to be substantial for the totality that you are connected to.

Heavy

I carry myself around. Who is it that carries me around? My thoughts that I identify with. A heavy past becomes a heavy burden. Why am I weak and what I carry not light? Can carrying the past ever be light? Why are you carrying the past? Is it a reminder of the heaviness of life? Or does it remind you of the lightness of life? Learning from the past, smiling with gratitude for having gotten to experience the past, that is light. Still wishing you didn’t experience the past, that is heavy. Take a moment to reflect, be brave to relive the heaviness. You can time travel, don’t be afraid of the darkness of the past. Bring the light to the darkness by illuminating the moments that have the most suffering. Be present to the suffering self with a loving and compassionate presence.

Know Thyself

Can you ever know yourself? Who is it that knows the self? Do you see that the universe moves through you? Every moment the universe recreates you in a different place in spacetime. The universe is constantly moving you through it. What does it mean to know who you are? To be completely aware, and mindfully honest of what the truth of your greatest good in each and every moment is. It is a battle for the hero, to grab your sword and live at attention in every successive moment. Reawaken each breath and accept the present of being. The responsibility to use your will for the greatest truth and good in each moment. To give the universe the presence of being a compassionate and loving awareness. Fight to choose to live this way and and you will affirm bliss. Then you will see in your mind who you are. Then you will be connected to source.

Fear

I’m scared. Scared of what, I’m unsure. I think it’s that which may come, but why be fearful of that which isn’t? Always letting imaginary ghosts derail the bliss of this breath. I am scared I am unworthy of this breath. My past tells me I’m not and informs my future that I won’t be. Fear of the unknown terrifies me. Will my anxiety ever fade away? Will anything I do ever matter? Time dances behind the now, never telling me when death will arrive. Instead I run around wondering when my shadow will devour me. Will my love triumph over fear and mean anything? Or will it all wash away? I lament my not knowing. Nothing ever comes tomorrow. I chuckle at the tease of life, smiling now, at least I have this breath.

Ideologies

Thoughts can become functional restrictions. We use our box of self to distinguish from other. Don’t fail to see that self and other are contained in a unity. If your perspective is aimed by looking down on other, then you have failed. Any ideology that doesn’t do good for all parts of the whole is flawed. Love is giving, and seeks to simultaneously uplift all of humanity. Anything less is only an illusory good aimed at improving those who suppose such change. Don’t speak, to silence, that isn’t love. Your only judgements of morality should be your actions. To speak is to know, to have known, is to have heard and understood other. Compassionate listening is a must to understand another. Seek to start with the most important awareness, respect another’s will and presence. Ideas that don’t aim to do good for the all, aren’t truly good. Before you attempt to improve humanity, make sure you’ve improved yourself.

Wanting To Be Hugged

I am cold, alone and long for a hug. These moments of loneliness oh so silent. Wishing to still be in the arms of a loved one. Their presence and smell imprinting a memory in my core. What is it that makes me long to be held and touched? I just want to be seen as I am. Seeing our awareness merging into one. A moment for illusory duality to be revealed as the unity of being. The awareness in you and the awareness in me have seen self in other. The ecstasy of the mountain reaches a single peak. What began as many roads became a single final destination. The energy of awareness delights in it’s waving back into the ocean of infinity. I just want to be hugged. Deep down we all do. Invite that kind loving presence into your life. Stand up and out of yourself, turn around, see yourself, hug yourself as infinity would.

I Just Want To Be Seen As Human

Being is what unites us. The capacity for awareness always present. Self reflection and seeking progress the mirror to re-identify better possibility in the now we reside in. How we are perceived isn’t a true assessment of reality. You can not know yourself through thought patterns and memories of who you think you are. You can only be who you are when you are truly aware of the present. Whether one is male, female, or somewhere in between, our essence lies still further. If I crossdress, I have not changed who I am. Awareness of being lies beyond biology’s labels. I can embody compassion through awareness of another’s presence. How I express gender isn’t what is most important. What is, is seeing the awareness of being, that is the goodness within us all. When we are in the space of awareness of being, we have room to be compassionate with all, in whatever there human expression is. Don’t judge me because I crossdress. See it as a desire to minimize the gap of knowing my opposite. I may never know my opposite from an inner perspective, but I can, by letting empathy bleed my outer perspective into my inner feelings.

Ruthless Love

The greatest gift for self is ruthless love. Who can love you, but yourself? No love can touch you if you don’t allow it penetrate your heart. Notice every breath as a moment to love. Contemplate ruthlessly observing yourself in a trance of love. Imagine hugging yourself, feel it and it will be real. You are an extension of the universe and your paradigm of experience. Every moment you must love yourself, by extension you must love the universe you experience. Never quit loving, there is no better action feeling. Quiet the voices, speak in your mind with love. Can you feel the energy flowing through every cell you are experiencing? Breathe in loving energy, and exhale back loving energy into the universe you inhabit. You are not alone, you are connected to the absolute that is absolutely incomprehensible.

Limits of Rationality

Sometimes we wish to erase another’s pain. Rationalizing the good in the bad and searching for growth in the chaos. A murdered brother whose killer was never apprehended or identified. A kidnapped brother never seen again. Brothers who robbed you in a business deal. Sisters and brothers who robbed you in a parent’s will. A burden that no rationality can take away it’s pain. I spent a lifetime rationalizing my father’s burden away. Maybe then he’d finally be the compassionate father I wished for. Finally life has broken me into abandoning such a wish. A lesson was learned. There never was a way to take away the pain with rationalization. Empathy is all I have. There is no peace without empathy. I can never explain away pain. With empathy I can be with the feelings of self or other so they can run their course and finally dissipate.
