I am often asked....
... "what are you trying to do with the readers..."
I am not 'trying' to 'do' anything.
I hear or read something, or sitting quietly doing almost nothing,
and something 'pops up' to share.
Here is one that popped up in the bath this morning:
I still haven't fully got it - how indoctrinated we all are. All of us.
Even after devoting my whole life to becoming aware of my conditioning I
still get amazed when something new pops up.
And when I see how much people take their conditioning for granted - to the
extent that they do not even realise that they are conditioned - what to
For the majority, if you are brought up Jewish, Muslim, Catholic,
Protestant, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist - or any other ist or ism - then that
is it - that is The Truth, The Way, and anything else is just perverted.
And if you do decide to drop out of the religion or spiritual orientation
the tendency is to go against - and that ain't freedom.
So we don't even get near the overall accepted taken-for-granted's.
The most base part of us is programmed to reproduce - perpetuating the
Let's take for instance, insects. By the look of it, the three F's -
Feeding, Fighting, and... reproducing.
As we move along we do get some creatures that seem to play. Not the play of
the young - that seems more practice for when they grow up and have to
fight, but after they have grown some creatures seem to play and have fun.
Then, although there is a big jump - to humans - the basis remains -
survival of the species. Only we don't realise it.
'Falling in love.'
We hate to see it, but most people who 'fall in love' fall out again - and
go to the opposite - resentment. 'Love is blind' - has to be!
The Loop - devoting life to children - who grow up devoting their life to
children, who grow up to....
When meeting a mother there is something different about them - they have
something - and except in exceptional circumstances, they have usually lost
something as well.
What they can gain is unconditinal love - for their children anyway. Love
beyond their self-centred life.
Often though, not for their partner. Too busy/exhausted, and they have done
their job and are on hold until next needed. No wonder so many men wander
Again, generalising, there is something different about women who have gone
past the chemical/sentimental/conditioned/automatic rush and have not had
children. Another outlook on life.
More alive, open, available? Check it out for yourself?
As we keep attempting to share, we know virtually nothing about life, who we
are, where we came from, where we are going, and what we are here for - if
anything. So most people bumble along from one trouble to another.
Of course, it is never too late, as many woman have demonstrated. Always
time to start a whole new life - in this very moment. Yes - this one. Now.
If you feel you are more free than those around you - are you at least
attempting to share that possibility? Hope so.
And not the theory - we have lots of dead ones of those, but your living
in-the-moment experience. Just by our being, demonstrate what is possible.
We need the encouragement. And humour.
It is never too late...
