Life’s Unending Exam





We come into this world and like it or not, we are instantly enrolled in the school of life where each day, each moment in time, we are required to complete a variety of exams to get to the next level.  At the start of this journey, many of us believed that all learning was confined to a classroom and once we graduated from this institution, we were finished with school.  No more teachers, no more books, no more lessons…Wrong!  It was only when we got into ‘real world’ that many of us soon discovered that the teachers morphed into bosses, colleagues and relatives.  Sometimes it was even people you don’t know or situations you could never have foreseen.  The formal classroom just became life and what you learned in the educational system may have helped with your career but it certainly didn’t prepare you for navigating through life’s trials and tribulations.

The Identity Game Limits Your Growth


Once again, we come into this world a blank slate and the first thing we are given is a name and we are told who we are based on our family’s lot in life.  If our parents accepted this reality, they reiterated that reality to you.  As you moved outside the boundaries of your household, your friends, schools, religions, community, the world told you who are. But, who are you?
Down through the ages, it has been the question many have pondered.  “Who am I?”  Some have found the answer and others have backed a ready-made definition of who society told them they were.  They bought into the identity game.  Their existence on this planet earth was based on a limited category.  Why figure out who you are when society gives you ready-made answers and you can blindly accept the definition because then you think you belong.  You are finally part of a group.  The hitch is the group is plagued with polarities.  Not everyone in the group is working towards the good of whole and those who scream the loudest are usually at the lower end of the energy spectrum.

The Word Jungle


In this world, the use of words has become discretionary.
You cannot rely on the dictionary,
for it seems words are a lot of mumbo jumbo.
It now requires you to be a sleuth like Colombo.
Seems conversing has become like a rumble in the jungle.
Words, I am afraid are in an utter bungle.

They just don’t have the same old meaning,
and depending on the user it can be downright deceiving.
For sometimes words are manipulated.
Then there is the manner in which they are translated.
If the word and the action do not seem to comply,
somewhere there could be a little white lie.

Look at the words, destiny and fate.
They now are words used to abdicate.
No need to find your path home.
Plead you are suffering from some syndrome.
Someone else is responsible for your actions,
life is the result of the stars’ reactions.

The word love has been casually cast around.
You wonder if it can actually be found.
It has become the opposite of what it was supposed to be.
Love is just no longer free.
It comes with strings and expectation.
Love today even comes with litigation.

The meaning of success has been flipped.
The whole of mankind seems to be pistol-whipped.
You are judged by what you possess.
That has become the meaning of success.
It doesn’t matter about your true being.
It is all about your material well-being.

Free will has become a product of the ego.
It is now marketed as our amigo.
Yet, following it will bring you great misery.
There is no magic in its wizardry.
It will take you away from the original source.
Lead you down a dangerous course.

Words are tossed bogusly around every day.
Be careful about what you hear, think and say.
The power of words has been known throughout history.
Abracadabra, Alakazam and Hocus Pocus are the keys to the mystery.
For each of them simply state,
with my word I create.

Truth Trauma


It is no measure of health to be adjusted to an extremely sick society. - Krishnamurti

For those new to this truth journey or who are suddenly awakened to just how upside down our world is; the truth can traumatize you.   Actually, to be honest, it can also traumatize if you have been on this journey for a long time.  Awakening is not a destination, it is a process and when you dive down the rabbit hole, it can leave you feeling demoralized, depressed, despondent or downright angry.  It is a big letdown when you discover that all you were led to believe was based on a lie that was propagated down through the ages as the truth.  Even worse, it is not just one lie.  No, it is a spiderweb of lies that are intrinsically woven together. 

History was written by the winners and was never based on truth.  It was based on a story that would keep the populations of Planet Earth in a deep, deep sleep.  Until a few sparks went off and some people started uncovering the truth.   The truth that there are beings in this world who control everything and have orchestrated the devastations and divisions on this Planet Earth.  It is the game of chaos and it has been operating for a long time with the sole intent to grab your mind and control it.

The Rising of the Inner Sun



Do not be afraid.
You have nothing to hide.
You have nothing to lose.
You need no one’s approval.
There is no one to judge you.
So, stop trying to be somebody.
You are already incomparably unique.
There is no need for improvements.
There is no need to add fame,
respectability, name and certificates.
In the end, they are all worthless.
For the more you try to be somebody,
the smaller you shall become.
The further you get from your true treasure.
The one that can only be found within.
It is not what you have attained in the outer that counts.
It is only what is attained in the inner that matters.
It is only through the inner you reach new heights.
Give yourself permission to be,
Release all preconceived notion of what society expects.
Turn within and allow your true self to shine through.
When you finally do, happiness will burst forth.
The sun shall rise.
The flower shall bloom.
