Occupy Blogosphere, Thursday September 27th 2012 – Willingness

Political season comes along and any discord within me seems to bubble up to the surface all aimed as hatred at the Republican Party and their candidates.

I have very eloquently and articulately insulted half the United States in the past month or two with snide comments upon Face book. So apparently I have used the heart for purposes of hate rather than love.

I believe it to be sinful to use your heart for hatred. Some of those people, at whom I aimed my political ire are people who have been constant here in my life. Constant. That means that they have been caring, loyal and never wavering. So, I have hurled insults and hatred into the faces of people who have cared about me. I am sorry for having done that. I have had a slight shift in thinking of late. Gratefully that shift in thinking came to me about 10 days ago, so that I could stop my political nonsense and use the heart for what it was meant for, a tool of love.

This is one of those times for me to refocus and move my focus one millionth of an inch to the right or left, up or down in order to see more clearly and to think differently. It is time for me to change or to shape shift as it is known in indigenous cultures. It is time to take control, time to take back my power, time to view the world through a loving lens instead of a hateful one. And believe it or not it is easier than you might think. One simply needs to be willing. Just one millionth of an inch … that is how long willingness is. Being willing to change is half the battle. Being willing is an act of one’s will. The change you desire to make will follow by the grace of spirit.

  1. Thank goodness we only need to make the decision to be willing and it begins to happen. That millionth of an inch simply takes off. I like what Paulo Coehlo said: “When you truly want something, all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

    Thank goodness for small (?) mercies.

  2. oy…ok, i struggle with much of the same…not a big republican fan these days and think some pretty nasty thoughts as some of the things being bandied about….loving how your shift is playing out as well…

  3. I am not surprised to come in and read this right after penning a poem on a similar theme…….about Bodhisattvas………..it is REALLY hard to love those who we find dangerous to the survival of the planet. I’m definitely not There yet…….but yes, somehow we need to beam positive energy to counterbalance all that negative stuff out there and hope that enough of us will finally manage to Shift this stubborn global consciousness, so set in its ways:) Great write, Sis.

  4. Oh, I know it’s a simple choice to BE willing–and I recognize the pain I create for me and others until I GET willing……eventually. I sometimes wish there was that annoying alert that huge trucks have when they’re going backwards attached to ME when I start my inching away from all that I truly AM……

    Bless your heart for what you shared here, for the inventory taking of YOU instead of the fingerpointing….for the rigorousness of your honestly and the willingness to shift to where you truly long and desire to be.
    And thank you for letting me read here.
    Be safe, stay well……

    • mell, thank you for your lovely comments. There was a we bit of work done before I actually saw that I needed to be willing. I put out there: “OK it is time for me to make some changes … what do they need to be?” So, I had set up the premise. And that is the real reason that willingness came easily. Many thanks for you kind words.

  5. Oh, Raven, I’ve felt that shift too, of late. But it has been in my personal circle, rather than the political arena. Family and friends have tested me lately and I got up there on my high horse thinking ‘how dare they?’ And ‘I’ll show them!’ But that’s not loving to myself or them and only fuels already inflamed situations. It’s not easy to change perspective, but, as you say, you only need to be willing and the change will happen! Great ‘Occupy’ post, thank you for sharing! πŸ™‚

    • Wightrabbit so good to see you. I will say that you have it a lot tougher than I. Having to change oneself within the context of family is really not easy at all. All kinds of stuff rears its ugly head that becomes so much more personal. But isn’t it wonderful to be able to change and have help spiritually doing so. Thank you.

  6. In the end it’s all about choice, isn’t it? Easier to love than hate and that doesn’t mean we don’t use dicernment.

    Well done, dear friend. The perfect “occupy” it must be said.

    Have a fab weekend.

    Hugs!

  7. Hi Liz … love your site here … (and the above message: Willingness) I just refreshed my own “page” in “passing by”, probably will never be active though, as in most sites I have signed onto, similar to FaceBook, I still spend the most time at Gather … love ya, j.

  8. Hi Again Liz … Hey, I still like what you said … I have been gone a while, I long ago lost my ability to log into my WP account, but just changed the required info and finally made it in. I have been very active on FB for a long while now … interesting is you mentioned above some “re-thinking” (willingness to change, “a bit”) … I have run across you a few times there. on FB, but in glancing at your material you seem “pretty Far Left” πŸ™‚ … When I was on Gather I considered myself Center-Left and wrote accordingly. We must have been sort of close in our political thinking then because we got along great … so when I have come across you lately, in noticing your political views, I have never said anything as much as a “Hi” because I did not want you disliking or hating me for where I have gone “politically” … I never went very far, but I did “change directions” … now Center-Right … but I feel that politically the Left has “went off the rails”, they left me more than I left them. I have done a lot of studying in regards to Who and what is behind Communism (I had always admired Russia when growing up), disregarding all of the hype (propaganda) about the “Soviet” aspects, thought nothing of value Religion-wise back then (only growing recently to try and see things from their point of view) so the idea of them being “Godless” never bothered me a bit then either.

    Way back when, somewhere in the middle to late ’90s, I became very (extremely) Spiritual and in looking for “like thinkers” I approached some of my old friends who later in life had become Religious, but I still leaned Left then, hated Oppressive Military actions by us around the world, but those friends hated Hippies as they loved the Vietnam “Heros” who had been “keeping Communism away from our door” BS … They were way too Right for me and in their being Religious, their “peers” had probably already told them, what their Preachers tell them all, that if you are not sworn to Jesus you were headed for Hell, along with those “New Ager” types (which I identified with then more than anybody else I knew about, their Philosophy was more “Eastern” Hindu/Buddhist) … I had not realized that I had changed until Hillary ran, and it was not “her” as much as the NEOCONS (who were primarily, if not completely Republican) but what I hated about them was their PNAC (Project for a New American Century) intentions of going into Iraq then Iran (seven countries in total to be taken over) … but it seems that Afghanistan waylay-ed them . I knew what Hillary wanted by then, having been responsible as the Head of the State Department pushing the destruction of Libya, supporting the brutal killing of Qaddafi because he had massive stockpiles of Gold (which “she”, and cronies, stole, Most likely the main reason for all of the action by the West) and that he was going to go off of the Petro-Dollar to sell his vast amounts of oil to countries that were not our “friends”, using his wealth to back a “New Currency” of his own. That being the same reason(s)(Gold?) that we just had to go into Iraq …

    Anyway, as time passed and I studied up on the open, plus the hidden, history of some movements that led to the Russian Revolution where many millions were slaughtered, mostly Religious hard-working peasants. It is then that I discovered the very hidden post-Babalon story of the “special” group of Jews that took their Talmud super-seriously, thus hated the Goy, and made plans to actually “take over the world”… I had come across “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” by then, read them and was shocked as to how everything they had said back then that they were going to do, had been done! (so any denial of the real authenticity claiming a forgery was purely a red herring ploy, it matters not who actually wrote them, the predictions had come true.) … of course that all took me into many other areas of the relative Occult which included the story of the Rothschilds as the Bankers behind so much nefarious and malevolent geopolitics over the years … so, when I found out all of that, and a lot more, I finally recognized why the “Right, Conservative, Christians” thought like they did … they then believed the Official hype that we were in Vietnam to stop Communism, so they hated anyone that hated our servicemen and the cause they had been dying for, which being against the Communists fit there desire to get rid of all Commies! Well as it has turned out, their Preachers all along must have been telling them a couple things that were true, that those Jews (now called Zionists) hated Christians and that they were (as the Jews that they were) behind the Russian Revolution and the Communistic takeover of vast areas in the formation of The Soviet Union. The Christians actually knew about the dark side and how, at its core, hated the Goy and especially the Christians … they also evidently knew about “the Protocols” …

    I began to sympathize with them as the more I found out the more I knew, as a Spiritual “Whiteman” (still a Goy to them) that the Communism that I had originally thought was a great idea, everybody loving each other and sharing their energies and dreams to build a Utopia, was NOT panning out. Great idea, lousy management!

    Getting back to the present, the folks behind Biden are moving extremely fast to do here what they tried in Russia, and I do NOT like that in the least (people like myself are being “targeted” to wear a “yellow star”, one reason, I am absolutely against their “shots” that they call wrongly “vaccines”) . It seems that to most folks, Politics is sort of like picking out a favorite Sports Team to get behind and support, Great Entertainment! No awareness of the dangers and so then hating any from “The Other Side” … which is what evil does, divide the people to control them, give them something to fear the other about and that will turn into hatred and the hope that they will “genocide” each other … in any case they (we) will be too busy doing that to learn of who is behind it to the degree that we might eventually look up together and see our common enemy, which has not really been each other. Those who hide in the dark and do evil things do not want any light (of truth) shown upon themselves.

    I do not know why I am going on and on here, other than I respect you enough to tell you what has happened to me (and maybe not only give me some benefit of the doubt but just maybe you might …begin to look at it all to the degree that you can see the truths that I have bought up) … my wife had always thought pretty much as I did, maybe staying the same as I began to change, but when Trump came on the political scene, there was someone that she had always hated (I was never overly favorably impressed by him, until later*) and she seemed to never get enough of CNN, MSNBC, and the bunch BLASTING him for four years non-stop… and worse yet, the vindictiveness was evil because it was 90+ percent lies. I know the truth about most of the stuff that went on because I always sought the truth, looking everywhere and very deeply to find it … never available in the MSM “Sound-bites”. I checked also every MSM source that I could find to see what they were saying. As much as I had formerly hated FOX, I found them actually very truthful in so many cases … of course, I believe them to be “controlled opposition” meant to help divide up the people, give them what they want … up to the point where it might interfere with the ‘”Master Plan” of world control through the UN.

    BTW, I know that the pandemic is really a shamdemic, and the injection of secret ingredients into our bodies and bloodstreams is going to turn out pretty horrible. Much is being hidden and lied about, but will become known eventually. If you have not received the shots, do not! Things are not as simple or cut and dried as the CNN-type MSM tells it.

    Well, it has been a good purging for me, I hope that I have not upset you in any way Liz. I have not quit Loving you because we have too many good memories for that to happen. I have MISSED Gather SO MUCH! 😦 :-/ – πŸ™‚
