(Writing is in response to a conversation in Music class on Sexism)
There are things to be pointed out about written “History” because people take things so literally. If we first begin to look at “words” themselves, then we might be able to see something about history … so that it doesn’t write itself on our minds so deeply and become so engrained that it eliminates all other possibilities.
Back in May, I wrote a Newsletter about “WORDS” and used a lot of words to attempt to reveal to the reader that words … really only have the meaning we give to them. Ultimately they are not “real.” Words are just letters that we use to “attempt” to communicate with one another but true communication comes from the energy the words ride on.
I spent a great many years looking at words because at a young age it was revealed that they are not real … they are made up by humans … however it was discovered that one cannot actually even be a human … even human … is just simply a word.
You might like to take a look at the Newsletter for a bit more background on this … it is the same with math and time and maps. This is not to say there is anything wrong with them ... they are great tools to use in this world … however, we are trained from when we are very little children to believe in man-made things but not what man itself is made of (first things first :o).
A Teacher once pointed out that there is no such thing as California or New Jersey or America … they are all concepts … they are all lines drawn on land that are not really there and in Truth they mean nothing. Native Americans (some not all) knew this Chief Sealth (that is a link to a very good sharing by him) spoke of it to the President many moons ago, however things take a long time to change and be seen. Just because you draw a line on a map and everyone agrees about the line … doesn’t make the line real … it is still just drawn in the sand (literally) and will eventually be washed away by life, ultimately.
Back to History (which has been called “His Story” because it is told by the ones invested in telling it). History is make believe and is only valid by the ones that believe in it and usually is used to serve some kind of point that one wants to make. Unless you were there you will not ever really know what went on and even if you are there you only see it from your point of view with the foundation of your own opinions ideas and life experiences written upon what you see … no one really has a clear view of something happening because their life experience is written on it. You would actually have to be clear and free from who you “think” you are to write History accurately and even then you would have to be above the situation and seeing it from a broader view or you are not writing it from the standpoint of everyone but only from a select few/view.
Ultimately, history is all lies … not bad lies…just made up … usually to the best of that one’s ability ... people don’t try to lie they just don’t know they are.
Let’s look at fear and lies. Same sex sex … has been around for as long as recorded history has and yet recorded history has constantly tried to make it wrong. We are designed for pleasure and then condemn ourselves for what we are designed for. Sex is what makes the world go round … we would not be here (seemingly) without it. There is an intense energy to procreate to keep the species of “human” going. No Sex … no body to be in. This is probably one of the fears humans have of same sex relationship stuff because if everyone only wanted to have sex with the same sex then we wouldn’t be here or the population could dramatically decrease and we would have to change the way we are live here. The body would have to find another way to procreate … the one thing you will find about life is that it is very adaptable. However, those maybe some of the fears that comes up for people around same sex sex. Also, there is no way for the opposite sex to compete with the those that desire the same sex so it might also scare people that they may not be able to get any sex if everyone starts wanting the same sex and they don’t. Food for thought.
We can also look at the lies history builds up around around women. … what people claim is a “sexist thing” against women, the reason that people believe what they do is because we continue to reinforce the lies they are fed about who they are and what their roles are. If one is using their natural born talent, then it doesn’t matter what your color, your gender, your sexuality … you will break through just like everyone before you has and you will begin to change minds about what they believe. Everyone shines some how and some way, you don’t even have to find how you shine … just be who you are and you let it be revealed to you.
The women’s movement is a war … there are all kinds of wars in the world and if you want something to fight about you can pick from a million different things. However, you don’t ever have to fight for what you are IN and you are IN Peace, IN Freedom and IN Love, right this moment now however you have your attention pointed out at the world where it cannot be discovered instead of withIN you where it resides. In this world we are not equal … we are not supposed to be equal … our differences and limitations are the Gift that we get to experience ourSelf as different. However at the CORE of us is the SAME.
One of the wars in this world is the women’s movement. There is not anything wrong with it … war is a way of one person gathering many to fight for something they want that they think they don’t have. When you want something in this world … usually you have to fight for it. Wanting and fighting are in the same domain. Wanting is saying “I don’t have” and fighting is saying “give me what you have … I want it!”
If you want something bad enough you will go to war for it. If you want to feel held down … and have a fight to get up … using the female body as an example (though you can use anything you like as an example), you can say that being a woman holds you back and you can go out and attempt to prove it and find all kinds of validation for your war. What you seek you find. Or you can take a different way of being in the world, if you come not from being a man or a woman (and in fact not even being human … because you can see how even using “being human” has made us at war with the other animals of the planet … look who thinks they are at the top of the food chain) if you can begin to discover what woman, man, human, animal appear IN … if you begin to discover who you really and truly Are; then there can be no discrimination of any kind about you. You stand in yourself in any situation and know that nothing can be said about you … to describe you. You can hear any word called at you and yet none of them are you; so they don’t stick. It doesn’t mean that words will no longer hurt or that people will stop treating people poorly, but you will see the lie of what they do and say. You will begin to read history and appreciate the trails of others, but you will not take it as a literal truth, you will know that you cannot know everything, but that what animates you does and whatever you need to know will be revealed to you.
People have been so used to being spoon fed everything that they don’t stop and take the time to look for themselves. You can read until you are about to blow up from information, but do you check to verify things for yourself. Do you ask yourself in quiet moments what is it all for? Who am I? How did I get here? Am I here? :o)))))
Be the kind of person that is willing to “not” know everything. So many want to solve the mystery instead of just being in it and yet it is the being in it that brings the greatest JOY! :o)
Above are a bunch of “words” (lies) to point you to what cannot be said. :o) Maybe you will get glimpses of it … you already have in your life if you have gotten this far and are still reading … you have had glimpses of what cannot be worded or named or made a concept of …THAT which is always and forever Present.
Whether you are gifted right now in being in a man or a woman’s body, you have the ability to get to experience all the things it is capable of experiencing … enjoy it … if you want to feel like you are held back because of it … whether it is because of the kind of sex you like or people you are attracted to or color of the skin … or shape and design of the body enjoy that too.
Or you can begin to reveal to yourself and others that the body is like a really cool car that you have been gifted and you get to drive around in and check out what this planet is like through the use of it. If you take this option, you are a bubble of light for others (which you already are) and you help others not to take things so seriously and you help them to enjoy the fruits of those that have taken it very seriously for us.
One leaves the battleground once they discover they are already IN everything one could ever want. :o)
