As of today, we have a lot of technology that can really make our life better, but money and greed are our worst enemy.
..until we get the joke at the end of it all at power and greed's expense (when it's all brought to light)! Then it might serve us in some areas as a
stark constrast in terms of what not to do and how not to be. It's not all funny I realize of course, but the principal at the heart of it is however
grave the circumstances may appear.
Thank you power and greed for being so pathetic and hilarious and so devastating (the case against you) in the present light of historical truth, hey
you lost, what can you do but thanks for playing, not such a good job, maybe it's time to try something new?
They dropped the ball the "keepers of the flame" (whoever they are or may be), so now it's all up in the air and "out of control", but as Terrance
McKenna pointed out "if it's all out of control then who's control is it out of?"
History, modern history made an absolute fool out of the human being, but it's certainly provided a lot of good entertainment, and humor at all human
ignorance and folly's expense.
So if there's some guy out there with say a trillion dollars, if I get the last laugh then tell me who is the richer?
Oh he can still save his soul maybe it's not too late, but at least we know that we did our part and fessed up to our own stupidity and selfishness in
the whole mess, and that's good news if you place it relative to a universal principal or standard of truth, justice and love and find yourself
already on the right side of the equation.
So to "them" (if there is a "they") I have only one thing to say, other than to flee all corruption.
Be not afraid.
It's a double bind of sorts..
What should be afraid you see is everything that's ludicrous and absurd in the light of truth, that it might get laughed to smitherines.
But, since it cannot remain hidden forever, the comedic impulse in a spirit of self acceptance and forgiveness and unconditional love, to break
through the fear in order to be heard (brought to light), has to have sufficient courage to risk self-deprecation and the potential for rejection and
humiliation, so it's a fount of humor in self-forgiveness at our own absurdity's expense. It's the "humor of understanding" because it's the knowledge
of actual experience (a smile and laughter) shared as both a personal and a collective realization (spiritual experience), welling up in jokes told at
ourselvesa and one another's expense i.e: by taking ourselves lightly and our prior ignorance and our own responsibility for it very seriously.
It's a twinkle in the eye (from one person's eye to the other), the love in the heart (by taking ourselves and our life lightly), but it's also spread
out across the whole of it all with the earth and the human being playing some unfathomably mysterious, but uniquely intrinsic role, that we were
hitherto completely unaware and on recognition terrified that it's all on us and omg what should i do now? LOL
Acceptance is the highest form of love, and forgiveness the height of absolute liberation and unfettered unconstrained freedom and power, but power of
another kind, the power to choose wisely and with awareness and understanding and the absolute acceptance of one's true..condition.
What is poor fear and ignorance to do?
It (truth and love) breaks us apart breaks us down and picks us up and reassembles at the same time it's that fast, instantaneous, like the twinkle of
an eye (that's in the prophecy too).
Let it come, oh God the time has come, pour your spirit of truth, wisdom, and humor, out onto us lowly people in need of your transformative mercy and
grace and make us and everything new again. It's already beginning, it's already begun, in us, praise be to God, amen.
Let's hope so anyway, because ti's starting to look like a matter of life and death, but like I've pointed out, all our wisdom and understanding and
comprehension is tied to our humor, so when that goes, there goes the whole ballgame and that cannot be permitted to happen under any circumstances.
So there's my greatest fear.
A collective loss of humor, on the part of the whole of humanity - that we forget how to laugh at ourselves and risk being laughed at.
That we get to the point of taking ourselves completely seriously, now that would be dangerous and very very unwise.
"Life is a Mighty Joke. He who knows this can hardly be understood by others. He who does not know it finds himself in a state of delusion. He may
ponder over this problem day and night, but will find himself incapable of knowing it. Why? People take life seriously, and God lightly; whereas we
must take God seriously, and take life lightly. Then, we know that we always were the same and will ever remain the same.......the Originator of
this joke. This knowledge is not acheived by reasoning.
But it is the knowledge of experience."
