SAFETY FIRST (the gift of fear)

lafayette compound 008

SAFETY FIRST

I spend way too much time talking about overcoming FEAR.

I suffer from the FEAR of never having enough.

What I am discovering is…

FEAR is a gift.

FEAR teaches us to search for SAFETY.

FEAR teaches us to BE STRONG, to BE RESILIENT, to be PERFECT.

FEAR motivates us to compete; as we play games we not only have fun but we acquire and hone the skills necessary for protecting those sources of SAFETY, our families, our institutions of learning, our jobs. It is in these places of SAFETY that we discover the FIRST (but often ignored) of life’s great gifts, The GIFT of LOVE.

And so…

FEAR teaches us COURAGE.

FEAR teaches us FAITH.

FEAR  teaches us to PROTECT each other.

LOVE on the other hand makes all this perfectionism unnecessary.

HOVERING ABOVE ZERO

lafayette compound 008

 

HOVERING ABOVE ZERO

My friend  Randy gave a lecture entitled Hovering Above Zero. I did not ask him if those were his own words but I can say that the image of Hovering Above Zero inspired me so thoroughly that the balance of Randy’s message has moved my thinking for the moment, to the back of the room; I am pretty sure that we are on the same page.

I believe that the two greatest Powers known to man are Love and Desire: The nature of man can be summed up as Fear and Desire, Fear in this scenario being represented by the label, Zero. Zero in this case helps me to recognize that Fear is not a Power but rather the Absence of Power. The nature of The Ultimate Power appears to me to be Total Love and the Sum of All Knowledge. Given more blogging space and undeterred by the possible loss of readers I would gladly share the details of the years of research which I believe lend credence to this observation but for now let us say that Love and Desire are the two greatest powers known to mankind.

Fear is the absence of Power. When we tolerate Fear by “Being Strong” or “Pleasing Others” or “Trying” to “Be Perfect” we are seeking to overcome Fear when in fact what we are doing is increasing the likelihood that our specific Fears materialize or continue if already in progress. We are Hovering Above Zero and we are certain to fail.

Whatever we Fear can be healed. Whatever Power we need to overcome Fear can be found by accepting The Love. Nothing can harm us when we are immersed in The Love. I know of no limitations for the partnership of Love and Desire.

Accept The Love and Pass it on. Thank you Randy.

Hovering: Denying, defying, never trying. How high? Above Zero. (We need a Hero.)

Covering: The lies, the sighs, the highs, the sky’s the limit. Any lengths? Right, whatever.

Discovering: A better way? What did they say? A Higher Power?

Recovering: Truth? Really? How far? Any lengths? Really?

Savoring: Never wavering. How far? Any lengths. Really.

Hovering? Flying with the birdies, my Luv. Flying with the birdies. How high? Really? Now really.

ABOUT EVERNESS

lafayette compound 008

If you argued for a Power that did things for you, how would you describe that Power?

If you accepted the notion that Love is the only power greater than yourself, how would you explain that?

If you could describe God, what would you say?

If you were elected to be the Ruler of the Universe what Powers would you need to do your job well?

If at the end of your first term you were judged on how well you did your job, who would be your judge?

THE CHOIR OF MEADOWLARK HILL

 

 lafayette compound 008

 

THE CHOIR OF MEADOWLARK HILL

 

It began with a glimmer, a sliver of light.

In a matter of minutes the glow was right.

And the Meadowlark sang its song.

 

Another Lark………… another, again.

A feathery chorus was now on hand

As The Boy mimicked their song .

More Meadowlarks sang along.

And The Boy became a man.

 

The Year was not New. It was warm,

There was dew as the day took form

Like a voice from Heaven

The boy of eleven,

Joined the choir of Meadowlark Hill.

 

This morning was more than  a  day in the life,

This newborn man

Met the day now rife

With the pleasance of Trill

On The Hill of The Larks.

On The Hill of The Man.

A  humble young Man

Said Thank You.

 

Thank You  he said again.

Again and again and again.
