It's as if we've chosen a path to be 'free' yet in our desire to be free we get bogged down by 'what should be' not what is at any moment.
If you're rightly just pissed off... and you wonder why is the world so moronic on any given day, yet you still call forth that lightworkness of 'unconditional love' how can you really genuinely 'muster' it.
In fact, when you see both sides of any given issue, when you truly see where the person with the hammer is coming from as well as the person who is experiencing the 'hammer' or victim... you no longer place them in categories of perpetrator or victim - we've done both (if we are truly honest with ourselves). We all have the ability to be nasty to someone and if we're truly honest with ourselves we'd say we have done this... )
If you continually hate/rail against that which causes you pain, you create more of your own pain. You become not only the victim but the perpetrator of your own pain... this in turn, will turn you against others. You no longer see compassion as compassion, but pity as you fear you are being 'patronized' - you no longer see free sharing as about the person who wrote it, but about 'you' and your inadequacies so you have to 'defend' yourself and correct the other. Their words are no longer their own, but a reflection of who you don't want to be, but are and you can't see it as fine as 'just is' - it has to be changed to suit a particular way of thinking.
For example, you may say to me - 'why do you write in the second person? Why do you distance yourself from what you write by creating a fictious you? Or in fact do you believe the 'you' in what I write is actually the 'you' I refer to? If so, then I suggest you find out what you find so offensive?'
In the end it's all relative - this isn't a 'war' - this isn't a drama, this is just an 'experience' - you see what you want to see... I perceive what you see, and I am you and you are me... we are in this together...

Synch...Picked up a heavy dose of these energies of discontent a couple of days ago, first with my husband then collectively. They are great catalysts for change....
thank-you for putting it out here for contemplation, acceptance, and healing.
infinite love sister....OMni
I Never Said You Were Playing
January 7, 2012, 4:37 am
I never said you were playing a game. Where did that come from? I was sharing my tf's puzzle. It's fun and very funny for anyone who wants to solve it.
I never asked you to defend yourself either.
January 7, 2012, 4:04 am
I am not 'playing' a game - I speak my truth.
keep going - it's fine with me...
I will not define/defend what I said - you are perfect the way you are and so I am...
peace to you
I SHALL SHUT UP THEN. I Find
January 7, 2012, 4:03 am
I SHALL SHUT UP THEN. I find it sad that people don't want to embrace change, work together, and go with the flow....ride that wave high together and create the most amazing world possible. How can we do that if each of us already KNOWS what's best for us as individuals and that's the only thing that matters? The good old Western worldview is still alive and well. My tf did give this box a label - FIDUROD. Rearrange the letters and you'll see his message to certain "inhabitants" who will take over the earth if we let FIDUROD reign and are only looking out for ourselves. Can you solve it?
YOU HAVE SHUT ME UP! AND I shal F/O. Enjoy your bliss. And no, I am not mad. The world is mad, not me. (He wrote a great song about that!)
P.S. Anyone who solves it can email me with their answer. Please don't post it. Respect other people who may want to play this game.

thank you for the comment
I suppose I no longer desire to discuss about any particular philosophy or way of being - to me it is relative. No one has to understand any of what I say, nor do I need to understand any other in a spiritual manner. Communication is to dissect what already exists. In the end, our soul knows, really does know what each and every one of us is about where it counts - this is where 'unity' is...
no definitions, no categories, no labels...
this is where bliss is to me
love as always
How Can We Create If We Can't
January 7, 2012, 2:22 am
How can we create if we can't see WHAT IS and WHAT COULD BE?
It does not need to drag us down; it can impassion us. It can be delightful. It can be blissful.
Yes, your use of "you" could be offensive by many readers. It's not to me, especially since you pointed it out. I am sorry you are feeling the way you have conveyed. You do have my empathy; I have been there from time-to-time. This is not an easy time, but in the end it really is not all relative (see endnote).
It is "relational." You do not perceive what I see, nor do I perceive what you do. This is why communication/discussion is important; to clarify how we see the same/differetly and how our perceptions influence one another's perceptions. You are not me and I am not you, but yes, we are in this together.
The belief that "It's all relative" has been observed by many to be nihilistic.

:-) - glad you are back online :-)
I think what you 'feel' is absolutely justifiable - and I admire your resilience
much love to you... maybe we can keep each other company on this journey :-)

i like that.. then it doesn't make such a 'bad guy' out of the one who is feeling discontent. if we aren't discontent to begin with, then why would we ever want to change?
This Is Am Uncanny Day For
January 6, 2012, 10:17 pm
this is am uncanny day for coincidences..I saw your blog title, and I always enjoyed your blogs, but I did not like the title so I read it!
and I will try to work it out as I write..been so troubled for many months now due to my over/unbalanced work with animal activists...its pretty hardcore...all the time I tell myself not to engage emotionally with the subject...and I ALWAYS engage emotionally with the subject, the trolls, the NEED to tell the world...the helpless rage that solves nothing..a very precarious balancing act...
trying to 'antidote the hatred when I see it... theres a lot of it there...and at the same time, a GUILT at withdrawing from the 'cause' which will ever only achieve a mere drop in the ocean...I always pray that those animals who die in gas chambers and by lethal injection somehow can have their lives and deaths healed and through some massive miracle be raised immediately to the heaven of the fully delighted gods...I pray desperately for that...I am kind of all in chains with this stuff, it feels so wrong and tears the heart outa me...I think I should be inured to all of this, healed sufficiently within myself that I am not being constantly destroyed by it....something needs healing in me and I am not quite sure what that is...hanks so much and apologies for waffling.

The words Divine Discontent sorta flashed into my head and I got curious
about who said it, googled it up and got this:
“To be discontented with the divine discontent, and to be ashamed with the noble shame, is the very germ of the first upgrowth of all virtue.”
Charles Kingsley quotes (British Anglican Clergyman, Teacher and Writer whose novels, widely read in the Victorian era, influenced social developments in Britain. 1819-1875)
Kinda makes you think that discontent is all part of the 'program' doesn't it? I mean
before we can effect change we have to find discontent in the status quo. Maybe part
of the process is becoming discontent enough, pissed off enough, to DEMAND, or even
CREATE change for ourselves and the world around us? Maybe we oughtta be embracing
