The Day the Whole World Woke

by | Apr 8, 2021 | Philosophy

Without incident or damage
Today finally arrived
With a simultaneous knowing
Truth, as a Force, opened every eye

The ‘Tree of Life’ woke sleepers
As religion lost its way
The ‘Tree of Good and Evil’
A concoction of early days

Mind manacles and old beliefs
Of each and every stripe
Just dust in the wind
Along with all the hype

Projecting to the future
To see the last ten years
Sovereignty and dignity
Replacing fallen tears

Competition giving way
Judgments falling by the side
In perception of the collection plate (*1)
We can no longer hide

The whole world recognized
With a solitary glimpse
How each of us contributed
To a world with such a stench.

The good news is we saw it
And took ourselves to task
Providing ‘equal justice’
To top tier elites at last

Littles steps were taken
As humanity took its place
Ending years of tyranny
Moving into human grace

Prophets came and went
Who saw beyond the veil
Tried to educate us
But, at last, to no avail

Their words created separation
In the way they were portrayed
By those happy with their power
And all the parts they played

But, as everything progressed
Truth was seen at last
We are one and all significant
And with evolution tasked

The whole world a reflection
Of a microscopic view …
We’re all in this thing together
No matter what we do.

(*1) The term ‘collection plate’ unfortunately gives a false impression. As
such it harkens the idea of church and passing the plate for collection of
funds. Here it is being used metaphorically to reflect the nature of the
brain (which includes the body and mind). Through the enculturation process
we develop an expectation or a habitual view of reality, which as a
by-product of having a closed system, a closed mind, we can only draw to
ourselves circumstances commensurate to what’s already been etched into the
body-mind-and nervous system. To the degree that we’re freed up from
judgment and see everything we experience as a mirror that is attempting to
help us see aspects of ourselves, then we will be freed from the harness of
the past.

Because we have 13 families that hold themselves above the rest of us and
are using their wealth, intelligence and narcissism to enhance themselves,
it is to their advantage to keep us churning in our own ineptitude.

In writing “13 families” I was struck by the idea that Jesus and his
Disciples also numbered 13. In that I’m not suggesting there is necessarily
a parallel; however, in both instances, the global elites represented in
the 13 families and Jesus and his Disciples representing the other aspect,
here you have what some might call a reflection of “Good and Evil.” BUT,
what if that is not necessarily the case. What if Creative Intelligence,
God, Universal Mind or whatever else one might want to name or identify
this Unifying Principle, what if they both just represent a limited view.
In both cases they have had an extraordinary influence on the world we live
in. Perhaps the creation of the 13 families as a metaphor reflecting the
religious continuum of the other 13, perhaps they will cancel each other
out and humanity might begin to see ‘WHAT IS REAL’.
