Consciousness Atop the Hill of Ignorance

I have been brought to thinking via some of the brilliant minds and impassioned hearts of my Twitterverse. The topic of this particular discussion was an Understanding of the Conscious crowd few that I have a hard time trying to grasp: That we must first build the conscious collective within the community, or those who have an ear for such teachings, if ever we are to Elevate.

I tend to expend much more energy on my search for the spirit of words than the letter (I have said so many times before that, to me, words to thought are but the crudely interpreted doodles of masterpieces), and as I think rather visually, I usually devise some form of imagery that helps me understand a concept. The understanding I found brings me to question this method of growth. I ask that you try to picture this visual, as I can best relate it.

I See, for example, a school built of glorious marble and of beautiful design. The marvel of our time - a place of developed Consciousness, Innerstanding, Truth, Awareness, and Power - where like minds learn under like minds, and where great minds share with the youthful and the otherwise 'prepared' a Perspective of knowledge and Wisdom to be maintained and emboldened within the confines of these marble walls. Imagine, if you will, a structure that is the pinnacle of the community, to which the beaten and ready Ascend, and within which the Wise and Well-Learned will Elevate... And as such, it stands atop the hill of such a community that is otherwise plagued with ignorance and triviality.

I See this great place of Learning atop the masses of those who cannot Innerstand. The killers of our communities. The virus that destroys all humanity.. And as the walls of this college of sorts grows ever more fortified with the thinking and the hearts of those within its walls, I see the walls of that building contract to that end (for fewer and fewer might ascend and grow to be part of this set of the Aware if their thinking is not, from the onset, as that of those within these walls). And below this place of knowledge and shining Truth, there lies the shifting dirt. The dirt. Those that do not share in such wisdom. Those who do not grow from such Truth. Those whom's focus, then, lies on truth from Their perspectives... Drugs.. Hate.. Ignorance... And the weight of a 'superior' class upon their backs. And as they are set to focus on such negative things, they are pulled downward.

And as the extreme expanse between those of such Learning and those of such ignorance widens, the grounds upon which this beacon of Light, this pinnacle of Greatness - begin then to shift, and crumble.

And so, too, does the school come to fall to such negativity.

All of this I See, and express only to present the point that without an interest to elevate the minds of All men, we shall forever fall victim to the weaker heart and lesser mind. Why? Because I do not believe that in Raising a few to such heights of wisdom can we expect them (or anyone else) to carry forth those whom have it naught. I do not believe that pulling together all (and only) the minds that share in one's form of Truth proves to ever benefit the world, even if in the beginning that is the very purpose. And most importantly, I do not believe that we can ever learn all that we need to by looking to some few men and women alone for answers.. There's Truth that we All need to find in our very own lives, our very own Way, and to be allowed to seek such Truth, however one potentially finds it, is of utmost importance to the Elevation and Evolution of the all.

"Your problems are not my own but the Lessons, if I am open compassionately to your experience, Are."

"You don't Raise a peoples by showing them your Ceilings - you show them the whole Sky, offer your Shoulder, and they'll Raise themSelves."

So - though my understanding might be incorrect (and judging by the visual I presented, I'd imagine that you'd See that I am), such a view of the world is not one that I appreciate. Naturally, one is to wonder then what I would suggest, and by luck I do have some sort of response to this: Simply, teach everyone; you might do this by constantly learning, teaching, and evolving yourSelf. Teach by Freeing yourSelf from old thinking and overused paths to Wisdom and grow wise to/through your own Way. Teach by showing the community that revolves around you that it is OK - in fact, it is Honorable - to find Truth. To be yourself. To expand your very own horizons. Teach by Example. Provide the world a story that you alone can tell, and leave yourself open to the lessons learned by those on their own Path.

"I'm in no place to teach any curriculum.. I'm better off continuing to learn and thus teach by that example."

I know, sounds like BS - but as I see it, you will Never be able to change people. You can never Make someone grow. They themselves must change. They themselves must see it within them to grow. As you have no control over any other man, would you not best gain some control over your very Self, and show him that he in fact could do the same? Just a thought...

I intend to absorb the world around me as I experience it, and live as the Light I wish to share with the community; and yes, most certainly, even the world.

Silent War Cry Against Old Love

I don't know exactly where I want to go with this, Peace.. How it ought be written.. How I might express these sentiments... This is frustration with a smile. This is me shaking my head with a chuckle inside. This is a warm heart, happy in the way that I See, though few see as I do. This is my silent war cry against old Love.

And oh, how it blows this romantic's mind that such words be drafted from his person. Five years a fore and I'd have never fathomed this state. I am truly such a romantic of elder times - find a wall to tear down together. Stand firm as stone against all storms. Live to breathe the very breaths she's finished with... Yes, I believed in such love once.. My beliefs swam in the lucid dream of a happily ever after, days long past...

And yet, here I stand today.. And now, I see such a dream differently.

I See that such a dream is that of my own making.. And when I wake from it unto Truth I See that to do so much to hold onto a person that has passed her season in my world as quite akin to someone holding onto Winter in the light of Spring.. To force another into some empty space within me is too similar to jamming puzzle pieces from another box and image unto my own.. And I no longer see joy in the idea of finding some other to help strangle my Thought with lust-filled Emotion. No... I want to be Free to experience a person not for my perceptions and hopes and Expectations - but for a new view through their perspective.. A peak into the deepest whispers of their souls, perhaps to gaze upon their ambitions.. With no expectations beyond that within this very moment, her Light is Mine to partake in.. Her rhythm mine to sway to.. Her vibrations mine to share.

My Love is as Universal as waves of Light - not as simple as fairy tales and Disney movies. It's not as temporal and minimal as a daily ride along the lower vibrations; that which rattles loose my inhibitions and shakes Free my more lustful essence.. It's not as desperate as keeping her as close as I may, with a mind that this lover is separate of me, such that I need not feel alone.. It's not as naive as the search on the choppy oceans of love for that 1 and only perfect person for me that exists such that I might live the fullness of the dream I'm told I should have had since I was 8.. I'm not looking for a one and only to fill and complete me and make me all that I might ever be... I can't look to another to do any such thing. There will never be another person that can do that for you.. And if you Give someone that ability, then you Give someone the opportunity to take that away from you. And as any other has but their own Way to go, when your paths come to part, only then will you see it. Love and believe and encourage and achieve for Your Self. Save yourself such needless heartache due to your emotional tentacles strangling away what True Love really is.. Due to the Expectations your Ego impresses upon another human being along his or her Own Way..

We are meant to ride the waves of one another.. We are supposed to love all, sure, but me - I tend to fall for energy that caters to my own.. To waves that amplify my own.. To music that touches my very core and makes my very Soul sway. I can feel that to varying degrees with many another.. And as I find My Way and My Self, I come to find more and more individuals with whom this force is all the more potent.. and beautiful.. and intense.. I am constantly attracted to the Light that does best to expose my own.. And deflected from such frequencies that fall harshly on my inner Sense..

So no, and I am sorry, but I am not Seeking Love from any One when Love is all around me.. Not looking for any One to complete that which is and has always and shall always be complete - not just within my Self, but through All others. I'm not looking to be saved. I'm not looking to save any other One.  I'm not looking to give into Expectation... But the Season.. The moment.. The instant..... And the infinite Love therein.

As such - I ask that you sing me a song... And dance with me.. As I dance to you... In the breathless infinitude of this very moment.. And you will have my eyes.. And you will have my heart.. For as long as our forever is in Season.
