It's been over a year since I have produced an entry for this blog and to my mind we are living in a new world, a world completely different the one I previously thought that I was living in. In my prior frame of mind I saw the world as a chaotic uncontrolled mass of humanity struggling to find direction both on a personal level and on a community level.
Today I see that there are guiding hands leading humanity in directions we know not where.
Who are these guiding hands?
It cannot be the politicians, for they come and go and each one plays their part on the public stage and then leaves that stage and the agenda for the next player who in turn plays their small part.
It cannot be the people, since no matter who we elect we get the same agenda. No matter how much we object to our money and our property and our rights being given away to corporate interests, no one listens, no one cares.
It cannot be the corporate executives or the bankers who like the politicians, play their role, take their pay and go.
Yet under the shasow of a universal protest that "I just work here", there is some guiding hand directing the global agenda from places unknown, be they physical or spiritual.
I have come to conclusion that now is the time for each of us to exert our sovereignty, if not over our nations then at least over ourselves.
By taking control of our minds, our thoughts and our emotions we control our reality or at least our perception of reality, which after all is all that there is and all that we have.
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
