You are the battlefield

There’s no looking for crowd validation. There’s no waiting for outside redemption. There’s no collective bargaining to rely on.

The awakening is you. Only you.
That’s what all this is about. The battle for your spirit and soul. There is nothing more important in this life for you, or me, than waking up. Once that’s straightened out the rest will follow.
How we perceive the world around us creates and reinforces the world around us. Once we become conscious and aware that this existing matrix we’re witnessing is an arbitrary creation manipulated by power-crazed puppeteers, that is when the change happens.
And the Universe will tell you what to do from there.
That’s what to respond to. Nothing else. That’s your job. That’s my job. Don’t shirk it, enjoy your earthly suit, but rediscover who you truly are.
We judge so much by how we think it will measure up to the world around us rather than just express what we’re thinking and feeling openly. Whether with close friends and family, our peer group, or the message we pick up in public, we’re being programmed. Programmed to not respond to obvious needs, but to strange, shallow self-serving impulses.
Just like everyone else.
But who’s looking when you’re sleep walking.
But there’s a price to pay.
Everything. Waking up costs everything. So what? What are you saving up for? Aren’t you paying that price anyway even if you’re not waking up? Life always costs everything. You’ll leave here eventually, like me, and the cost will be your life. How did you spend it? Consciously, or trying to conform, and using that to hide behind to justify living as a comfortable, selfish, lazy brain donor to the system.
That’s the battlefield. You. Me. It goes no further.
The only thing is, for conscious, spiritual reality there is no predator. That’s the secret. We are eternal consciousness having an experience.
We, individually, have to change first. We have to commit to consciousness, get free of entanglements and live a conscious life. The rest has little meaning until we get out of the matrix.
It’s you. It’s me. Your personal world and experience is the only one you’ll ever know. Just let consciousness be your guide. But act on it.
Dont let them take your freedom…

The Meadow Walk

On the walkway to cafeteria for lunch today, something touched me…it was a cool breeze. Yes, in the midst of a busy work day! I saw a butterfly, black-golden… flap its wings heading to small purple flowers that bloomed on the side of the walkway, bright sunny day.. how I imagined as if I were walking across a meadow with flowers blooming in the trenches! I even heard a bird singing amongst the trees…my senses as if were experiencing only what they wanted to experience regardless of the busy life all around. I could even smell the fragrance of flowers in the breeze, not just the purple ones! there were many, small bushes with bunch of yellow flowers, red-yellow flowers, pink and some of the trees also had flowers…

Thank you breeze, but who sent you?
