I recently watched the Lego movie(duh, mother of six) and it was terribly profound in an obvious and superbly blunt way. The main character is a generic worker, happy to live by the “instructions”, assimilate into traffic patterns, stay mesmerized by the singular TV station and was perfectly content in his distracted excitement over “Taco Tuesday”. That is, until he breaks out of the mold and realizes that there is a larger existence to which he is connected and nothing in his world makes any sense.
I feel as if I have been connected to this larger existence for most of my life and a lot of what “makes this world go around” makes me want to vomit. We live in the time of human decadence and I see the end coming quickly.
Whether we want to believe it or not, our planet Earth is a living, breathing entity in its most basic and scientifically explainable form. There can be(although many people try) NO ARGUMENT to that. We have seen it from space for God’s sake. We are studying it and experiencing it on a daily and devastatingly affective basis yet we STILL stick our heads in the sand and really and truly believe that we are separate from the Earth and that our actions won’t affect us!!!!!!
What most of the human population misses is that we are fundamentally parasites on this being and have morphed into a cancerous disease. Human beings have singularly and effectively thrown the homeostasis of our host so out of whack that she is starting to retaliate and yet we are still obsessing over celebrities, fashion and sports games while the ship goes down in flames.
When the FUCK did human beings-who are simply and definitively mammals just like a friggin’ platypus or field mouse-get the idea that this whole earth and all of it’s beautiful and amazingly BALANCED, EFFICIENT and FREE resources are theirs for the taking? And raping? And exploiting? And destroying? And manipulating? And hoarding? Then, if that weren’t FUCKED UP enough, we started to and continue to do all of those nasty and disgusting things to EACH OTHER. Just to get MORE. Guess what? The Shit’s gonna run out, dumbass.
People of this world are so brainwashed that we think- I mean really and honestly believe that the very best people in this existence are the ones who have attached themselves the largest number (which is fundamentally imaginary, manipulated and contrived) and amassed the biggest pile of stuff (which for the most part is completely useless). We follow their every move and care more about what they take in their morning coffee than how many children were orphaned in Africa this morning because of AIDS. We want even a tiny portion of what they have and aspire to become just like them. WHY? REALLY-FUCKING WHY? We need a distraction from the depressing truth.
Human beings have lost their heart and I am devastatingly sad thinking that it is too late for us to get it back. We think that the brain is the most important part of us, where we store all of our individual memories, thoughts and processes. But a body can last a surprising amount of time with very little brain function. It cannot, however, survive without a beating heart. The heart is our center- literally. It is the most protected organ. Humans have gone so far into their brains and are so obsessed with nit-picky details that they have forgotten how to truly understand the simple, easy, elegant language of LOVE. It is the still small voice of God. It is the voice you hear in silence, when your brain shuts the fuck up. It is enlightenment. It is the soul. It is intuition. It is the voice of creative inspiration. And at its purest form, it is the whisper of instinct. And it is not in our minds. It is in our hearts. This is the language of the Earth and nature itself. To me, this is what all the prophets and yogis and shamen and seers understood. I believe that the heart is where we store a larger collection of experiences, memories and feelings. More than we can even fathom.
It may seem simple and feeble to most people, but I truly believe that we can begin to heal ourselves and our home if we break through the barriers of distraction and manipulation. We need to shut off the static noise and listen to the crickets. Watch the trees swaying in the wind. Observe a flock of birds flying overhead. Be still long enough to actually watch the clouds change shape and we will start to remember that language. You know it, its the one you feel when you go on vacation. Feel it at home and start to breathe a little deeper. Like yourself. Hug more. Look up at your family and enjoy them. Do not judge others. Do not judge yourself. Invite your neighbors over to enjoy a meal. Prepare that meal yourself. Honor others’ individuality. Please please please –
