As you form a thought of a thing within your mind,
Thus, if you have a pre existing notion of a thing it literally, locationally must pass through that thought when it comes into your physical vision.
For example if you feel great love for someone, or obsessive infatuation, you will see only what is beautiful and not their shadows. (and when a shadow of theirs is revealed, your heart shall break in betrayal, a silly thing really since the shadow is there all along).
If you see someone as evil or demonic, you will see only their faults and never their positive characteristics, you mind makes them incapable of performing any act of love, simply because they once performed an act of hate. Not very accurate, for any one can make any choice at any time. Just because people DON’T choose consciously doesn’t mean they CANT (obviously with some exception due to impairments). This is very crucial to understanding human potential.
We shall never grow if we hold to some “belief” that no one will ever change, and we project that “belief” on everyone including ourselves.
This is the secret of Medusa.
Medusa is the hatred and punishment and fear that lives in the hearts of us all. Medusa was once a beautiful maiden who was the envy of all with long flowing hair. She was raped by Poisidon in Athena’s temple and was then punished and turned into the snake monster that is the Gorgon. Because Medusa can not let go of her butt hurt towards men for her unfair treatment, she becomes venomous and poisonous. She believes only that all men are evil. And so they become frozen, no longer able to grow as soon as she gazes upon them. Because the thought of hatred for them has formed so strongly in her mind, she can actually project it upon them through her eyeballs. Perseus only escapes this fate because he is able to not “take in” her idea of him, and maintains his own identity (free from guilt or blame) by reflecting her back upon herself. Thus refusing HER thought (which is like an infectious virus) and keeping his own view of himself and the world.
To see things in reality as they truly are requires an evaporation of no less than every single thought you had ever,
The continuous new experience of the Shiva fountainhead
The perpetual renewing of the mind.
This is the secret of Pegasus. Pegasus means “spring” or fountain, or “to emerge”. Pegasus is born from the blood of Medusa after Perseus cuts off her head. The fountain of blood pouring from Medusa’s head brings forth the beautiful pure and free form of Pegasus. Medusa is not killed, but rather, transformed into her pure spirit, which is now free from all the thoughts (thus the symbolism of the decapitation, the quieting of the mind parasite) of hatred and evil men. She no longer dwells on her suffering and unjust punishment. She is set free.
The true burden of all victims is to keep Love through all their tragedy unjustly inflicted upon them by others, perhaps the most difficult task in all the world.
Free from the punishment she is inflicting on herself as a result of the inability to accept and forgive the pain of her past.
It is PEGASUS that Perseus rides to meet the Kraken, and KILL it with the very head of Medusa. Medusa’s poison is now turned into a CURE, and shall save the day. In other words, this ONCE EVIL THING now provides SALVATION
The cure slays the beast that now threatens the to kill the innocent virgin Andromeda.
In order to keep purity in the world then,
Through the understanding of Medusa’s story,
One must not cling to unjustices and victimization, heart break, trauma, horrifying rapes, murders or slavery. Although it is understandable to do so, and there is no judgement for such states, as PAIN of course is so difficult.
One must not cling to things. One must transform as a result of them. One must not allow one’s self to be poisoned by the terrible actions of others upon our forms,
One must take all the bitterness from these actions and use it as medicine to fight fear itself.
The power we have to destroy each other is doled out wantonly on each other, as irresponsible children strangling each other with jump ropes.
If that ability was used only to protect
To protect life itself
The things we could do,
If our Medusa eyes pointed only
At the Krakens of our past.
Everything always must never be taken for the old thing that was what you once thought. Each day must be new. GROW WITH EVERY BREATH
Expand yourself and the possibilities of all. With every blink of your eye you become a phoenix, not the same as a moment ago.
If you’ve set your heart a little too keenly
on some wonderful something
from God knows where
will snatch it from you
Oh my Love!
Do not cling to any little something
Only then when we realize EVERYTHING is free to grow move, become something other than what we thought it was, only then are WE FREE to truly experience things with no deception, with no veils.
Your own ego mind
Is the only thing
Shed all thoughts of you.
Think only of what is within
For in each breath does heavens gate unlock
Each breath taken by your mind heart and soul into the body which is surrounding you, with concentrated awareness
Is the map to the location of the power of your soul
Living in your flesh
The holy breath which can
Through the removal of your ego
Allow your soul
To make itself known to your form made of clay.
May be reminded (and in so doing make the leap to be set free from all forms)
Of the mountain
Who will someday turn us to sand
where we become Krakens
To meet ourselves again
As I was writing this, a friend on facebook posted the following quote:
“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard.
Do not let pain make you hate.
Do not let bitterness steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though
The rest of the world may disagree,
You still believe it to be a beautiful place.”
