Don't know if I am or not, but I certainly feel like one of these old souls. I'm weary of seeing all the stress and heartache we inflict on one
another and wish we could all just realize that keeping up with the joneses or winning some made-up competition with other people is just ridiculous
as we're all born, we live, and regardless of the details in between, we all die (I love the quotes "Every man dies...not every man truly lives"
and "You may be a king or a little street-sweeper, but sooner or later you dance with the reaper").
We're all just pilgrims passing through, and I really do think we're all caught up in some sort of grand illusion. It's a simple lesson, but as
Yahushua taught, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" seems to be about the hardest thing for us as a whole to actually do in this
world, despite the fact that if we would all just consistently do it, we'd effectively be in a hippy paradise where everyone's needs were met.
There's more than enough: food; land; "wealth" to go around. But for some reason we just can't see that we're all one.
If you're into quantum physics at all, realize that with our universe having been born in a big bang, we're all quantumly-entangled. We really ARE
just all one, and the whole universe is actually touching. Everything is connected, everything is inter-related. Causes and actions ripple through
reality, and observation changes effects (check out the dual-slit experiment sometime). Apparently "the Secret" is approaching reality as well,
with my recent looking into placebo effect and Yahushua's teaching on faith. Now if I can just bring my energy up to not focus so much on what is
wrong, but on how I want it to be right.
The world is amazing and beautiful, and we're a species with so much amazing potential. But we're misled, distracted, and turned against one
another. We need to rise above and unite in our oneness.
To sum up, I believe in lending a helping hand, living and let live, turning the other cheek and realizing that violence begets violence and harms the
one inflicting it as much as the one it's inflicted upon.
Be well, and live in love.
