Protect your Candle from the Wind ; Exterior Circumstances Can Not Defeat All Things Do not be Fooled into REACTIONARY DEFENSES

“Emotions run between hope and fear leading to inconsistency in character. The result is not only a lack of success but an undermining of self esteem. Calm the turbulent waters of your emotions and hold to your inner consistency. Vacillating with a lack of commitment to success leads to failure. Liberation shows that you need to keep your mind free of fear in moving forward. Hope is not the same thing as commitment.”   –Hexagram 32.3

 

Hope and fear are both polarized extremes.

Unbalanced

And uncentered

Both exhibit

Expectation

And fantasy

Reality rarely follows these phantoms

But rather

Remains

Ever focused

On centering

The equilibrium

That is Nature

In order to become humans

That reflect Nature

We must accept reality

And work to change

According to its laws

Of homeostasis

We must center

Ourselves

(your center is a fire that is spirit it is in your heart)

And avoid polarizing extremes

That cause separation

Of mind body and spirit

In order

to remain

In balance

That is TAO

There is negative

There is positive

And there is neutral

One contains the other two

There is red

and there is blue

and there is Purple

 

To shift consciousness in order to alter and evolve humanity,

this will not come through legislature or political reform.

This will come from the inside of the hearts and minds of human beings.

to change the outside we must change the inside.

The more humans who go neutral and HOLD THE TAO

the less likely humanity is

TO FALL INTO EXTREMES

 

GO TAO NOW

become the Alchemical Hermaphrodite

the Alchemical wedding

Adam Kadmon the Androgyn

we MUST HOLD THE TAO SPACE

The Secret of Medusa, and the True Meaning of Pegasus

 

 

As you form a thought of a thing within your mind,

 

When you SEE that thing with your eyes, it goes through the FILTER of 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.

Turning ourselves and everyone else into stone.

This is the secret of Medusa.

 

Our own hatred of humanity is what turns us back to the earth from which we came and prevents us from soaring above it.

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,

10303872_10152306681382956_5327468645558295481_n

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

Imagine

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

watch out!

Severity

from God knows where

will snatch it from you

Oh my Love!

Do not cling to any little something

-Rumi

 

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.

 

THE VEIL IS YOU DEAR READER

Your own ego mind

Is the only thing

That stands

Between you and heaven.

 

Shed all thoughts of you.

Think only of what is within

Feel yourself

Breathe

 

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

This is the secret of the holy spirit

The holy breath which can

Through the removal of your ego

Allow your soul

To make itself known to your form made of clay.

In order that each of us little pebbles of earth

May be reminded (and in so doing make the leap to be set free from all forms)

Of the mountain

We shattered apart from

Mother mountain

Who will someday turn us to sand

And suck us back into the sea,

where we become Krakens

To meet ourselves again

-White Witch

 

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.”

-Kurt Vonnegut
