I Watched “Sound of Freedom” and Found Out I May Be Having a 2nd Surgery from When I Broke My Leg.

My PTSD flared as I thought of placing myself at the hands of those who function from their “ego-mind.”

Some tell me to “Let it be. You cannot fix what is wrong with the world.”

Some tell me not to us capital letters and shout out what I want to be heard that people are turning a deaf ear to.

After a tough day facing the realities of life and its nuisances along with reflections on some of its deeper sorrows, neither of which will be maintained as acceptable once God is allowed into the FULL Consciousness of Christ, I saw this on a couple of Facebook posts, and they seemed to speak to me what my heart and mind needed to hear at the moment.

As is the human body, So in the cosmic body.
As is the human mind, So is the common mind.
As is the microcosm, So is the macrocosm.
As is the atom, So is the universe.” ~ Upanishads

This is why we need the congruency of a Creator to give us the equilibrium that allows balance, freedom, and gratitude for all that is.

While to conform with any dogma beyond “do unto others what you would have done to you” seems quite unnecessary, I would suggest that it is only a “universal agreement that there is a creator that gives all existence its sovereignty and ability to define its own path and existence” that will allow true freedom. And it must be received within, not simply by allegiance to some outer creed.

We would want to acknowledge this Creator as so massive as to allow one organism (The Son) that embraces room for all that is to be safe and free to express the joy in its existence and gratitude in its Creator.

To take away all symbols that we abide in as “truth” at this time would be cruel and trigger a further suicidal pandemic but to open the mind to be willing to think about what one believes and why one believes it and to understand the tendencies of the human mind to lean into addictions, depression, and power-hunger would do much to elevate the human struggle over mental illness.

We need to “get over ourselves,” too. Who says we have to “survive” as a species? Who says that is our destiny or even our reality? I AM NOT SUGGESTING ANY FORM of GENECIDE here!

Adjusting to our environment is what the human race is well known for. We MUST lean into that truth and consider a way of life that allows for freedom and abundance which the Son of God IS DESERVING OF while allowing the species to shrink and give way to a more realistic state of existence. One that focuses on the mind and the spirit rather than the body so that we may learn to live with ourselves and Ourself more authentically.

Let us be passionate in our desire for consciousness evolution while being cognizant of the fragile veil that separates us from knowing our true selves. Let us show compassion one to another on the way.

Bear in mind that I am NOT seeking to keep up with the latest theory about existence. Nor do I seek any applause. I seek only for what is realistic for one who understands that God IS and NOTHING else could be REAL.

I am passionate about life and about the human form holding the consciousness that declares God IS and His Son is ONLY as He was created innocent and full of Grace.

The light will come. Nothing less than this is possible.

“12. Now you must learn that only infinite patience produces immediate effects. ²This is the way in which time is exchanged for eternity. ³Infinite patience calls upon infinite love, and by producing results now it renders time unnecessary. ⁴We have repeatedly said that time is a learning device to be abolished when it is no longer useful. ⁵The Holy Spirit, Who speaks for God in time, also knows that time is meaningless. ⁶He reminds you of this in every passing moment of time, because it is His special function to return you to eternity and remain to bless your creations there. ⁷He is the only blessing you can truly give, because He is truly blessed. ⁸Because He has been given you freely by God, you must give Him as you received Him.” (ACIM, T-5.VI.12:1–8)

An appointment on Monday will tell me the results of my ankle and leg issues. The journey from when I made the appointment to posting this has taught me a great deal about myself. Hope is on the horizon. Even in this madeup story that we have concocted.

Till next time, God bless, debi.

I had to repeat:

While to conform with any dogma beyond “do unto others what you would have done to you” seems quite unnecessary, I would suggest that it is only a “universal agreement that there is a creator that gives all existence its sovereignty and ability to define its own path and existence” that will allow true freedom. And it must be received within, not simply by allegiance to some outer creed. In the Name of Christ, Amen.
