The Lie said to the Truth, “Let’s take a bath together, the well water is very nice. The Truth, still suspicious, tested the water and found out it really was nice. So they got naked and bathed. But suddenly, the Lie leapt out of the water and fled, wearing the clothes of the Truth.The Truth, furious, climbed out of the well to get her clothes back. But the World, upon seeing the naked Truth, looked away, with anger and contempt. Poor Truth returned to the well and disappeared forever, hiding her shame. Since then, the Lie runs around the world, dressed as the Truth, and society is very happy…Because the world has no desire to know the naked Truth.
The story was found on FB and I copied and pasted it here.
Everyone always talks about how wonderful and important it is to attain Awareness.
This time I would like to talk about some of the burdens.
One the path to total Awareness, there is the problem of seeing and feeling the lack of Awareness in others.
I see so many things that others do that cause them problems that are simple to avoid.
So much heartache, anger, and actions that will cause a future failure or more sorrow.
As I work on my path, I can’t help at this time to feel for those. It saddens me.
Knowing that others suffer, while I know what some of their solutions are, informing them, then to see that they don’t act, puts a burden on my energy.
I know that I must rise up more levels until I can feel compassion for those, and not be “bothered” by what they bring upon themselves.
Potential, am I living up to it.
I believe I am living up to my potential.
I know also, others believe the opposite.
When I deviate from a path that others have set for me, and I find a solution that was not on their radar, I have explored my potential.
When I find a solution to a problem that had no solution, I have lived up to my potential.
When I see past a socially acceptable ideal, to see a problem with the BIG picture, I am using my potential.
Therefore, I am only willing to see my potential from my point. I will attempt to bring and present a solution to problems. I am using my potential, and seeing that others do not live up to theirs. Of course, what I see as their potential, is only my opinion and cannot be expected of them.
I ask that you do not hold steadfast to your opinion of what you think is my potential, and I will allow flexibility in my opinion of yours.
When we finally allow both of our potentials to work together, without the shackles of opinion, we can accomplish….anything.
I died last night.
Last night, when I closed my eyes.
When I opened them this morning, I was reborn.
The memories I had, I have brought with me to this new life.
But, are they true memories, or are they just stories I have told myself to help build today.
Tonight, the cycle will happen again.
With each day/lesson, insight, and thought, am I progressing toward a higher level, or am I regressing toward the beginning when all was just one.
Is there really a yesterday/tomorrow? Or is this just a dream?
I don’t really want to break the cycle, just alter it a little here and there.
And, tonight, when I die again, I will keep my memories to build tomorrow upon my rebirth.
I have a theory;
When we are asleep, we dream. Those dreams could be new worlds.
In that, perhaps we are the dream of another being.
Or, maybe, when they are dreaming we are awake, and when they are awake, we sleep and dream.
Who is to say if we are, or if they create us, and we are part of them.
Or, perhaps, we are a part of a circle that involve both beings, creating one another.
I was watching YouTube and watched a couple of videos on digging for crystals, gemstones, then oil, and then fracking.
If we are removing so much from under the surface, we are risking the surface to fall.
Also, when we are mining for crystals, which many believe may have a variety of “powers”, wouldn’t removing them from the creating mother cause her harm? Removing the power that she need, or at least diminishing her strength.
On that note, wouldn’t removing anything cause harm to the planet. We already know that there are certain elements that are poisonous and/or dangerous to life, such as Uranium. Unearthing these elements could be causing more harm than we are aware of.
Perhaps, because of all over the planet, mankind has removed so much of the body of the planet, that we are now becoming sicker than necessary. Maybe there are new illnesses because we are weakening the Earth Mother.
Humans are basically very selfish, and if we see something pretty, we place value on it, then we must also have it.
If we find a use for something, we must also have it.
In general, life is provided for on the surface, we do not need to search below, or at least, not so far below that we need tools to get to it.
In all honesty, when we place value on material items, we really, in turn, are making it worthless, and lowering our self-worth.
Am I an Aquarian due to my birthdate? Or do I act like an Aquarian because I have read what an Aquarian should act like?
Is it natural behavior or learned?
What is it that one is supposed to do when there is no one that you can go to to talk about you?
Many people can come to me to talk about what bothers them, aches their souls, inner and outer problems, as well as their accomplishments, and happiness.
But for me, there are a few subjects that I cannot talk about, even with my closest friends. When I have attempted some of these talks, I was met with resistance and judgement. Also, some subjects if brought into the light, may cause unnecessary pain to others.
I see and think things in a totally solitary view. I have yet to meet anyone that is on the same level as I am. Some are close, so I can discuss some things, but not all.
As my life continues, I realize that I am in an interesting conundrum.
New solutions and insights present themselves, but no such luck for the errant thoughts that I would very much love to discuss with another that is in the same puzzle as I.
What is worse is that even when I have the discussions in my mind, some of it I cannot put into words. I know how I feel, I know what the subject is, but to actually put it into a definition of words, I am at a loss.
There is a theory that everyone and everything is the same soul living out many scenarios that could provide life lessons. And that these lessons are necessary to advance to the next plane in the Universal equation.
If this is true, then when you see someone (actually yourself, in an alternate timeline) and you see them making mistakes, and you know the solution to fix that mistake, it may just be the fact that you went through this (yourself) and thus know the solution. And maybe if you offer the fix, you are in all reality trying to help yourself.
This is a very complex thought process, and relies on an open mind to comprehend. I myself have difficulties following this trail. But, when I grasp certain aspects of it, it does change my actions toward others, thinking that they are actually me, and I need to make accommodations to move both of us(me) forward.
