Social Butterfly, we’ve heard the terms right and “busy bee”, which on the surface can sound great, but what is the motive behind being a butterfly and a busy bee?

Motivation is often the key to a lot in life.  I have at times, including when I did not want to deal with pain and the reality of fibromyalgia done the busy bee thing, trying to be involved in anything and everything at once.  The result was major fibro crash, so not so smart.  The human tendency and we kind of see it from the get go even in Genesis is to evade, run from, escape, not face up to things, not want to deal with things.   Some go to extremes to not deal with or face their own pain, hurt, memories etc…, drugs, alcohol, not everyone.  Some find the arts as their way to get out the pain etc.., even cooking as a therapeutic way to deal with stress, and pain.  There is no one size fits all for how one deals with pain whether that is prayer, meditation, the arts, cooking, baking all in moderation, in a healthy way, even socializing.  However, when a person totally delves into a frenzy of hoarding almost one friendship after another, one activity after another, one charity after another etc…, afraid to be in silence, alone, alone with one’s feelings, thoughts etc…, well not good.  Everyone has stuff that is not so great in life that happened, decision they wish they had made differently, things they wish they had handled differently, but with prayer, with faith, with changes in current patterns that can be washed away, one can find new life.  That is healthy and wise, quite healthy and wise to do so, recommended actually.  

However if one is scattered all over the place in a constant flurry of activity, has to always be surrounded by people activity and noise because they can’t be alone with themselves, their own thoughts and feelings, memories, not good.  I realize there are going to be some sad, lonely times, moments, even when God unites me with my twinflame soulmate in true union, in sacred union, the nature of life.  I realize I need to have those alone creative times, which I don’t really have now to create music and record freely what I write, to be alone with memories, even painful ones, process them and cry if I need to or want to, ball my eyes out if that is what I want and need, feel my chest rip open and know I will still be okay, maybe even write some awesome stuff out of it.  I may also end up remembering some really great stuff and write some funny, even joyful stuff, who knows.  My activities should be not many, not busy bee ones, but few and ones I do because they are truly dearest to my heart, and time I spend should be spend with very special people.  I spent this weekend having a great time with truly great people from the Joseph Petrosino Lodge, for a cause I believe in supporting veterans.  I realized in terms of my meet up groups I need to get out of most of them because they really don’t interest me they were groups I became part of just for busy bee reasons, not because they really were anything I was going to be really active in.  I also realized I don’t have to prove anything to anyone, just have to appreciate the gifts God gave me and use them wisely and effectively.  Time to really streamline my life, my activity, time to be authentically me and grow up once and for all, but like I said still be me, sweet and spice, all rolled up into one.

Amen! 

Demons Within, Undoing of Each of Us

Often when one thinks of demons, we think of the ones in movies, gargoyles etc…, but they are actually often closer to home, and lurk within us.  What are those demons and how do we purge them, constructively?

Demons come in many forms, they come in the scars that are borne sometimes from a childhood that was chaotic, upside down for any number of reasons, creating a very shaky foundation, so one might have all kinds of insecurities going on and can’t connect to others.  One may want to love, be loved with every fiber of our being by that special someone, have that very intimate raw union that is a fire int he heart, spirt and soul,  but fear it, don’t trust that, ourselves or others truly to go into deep connection mode.  The demons of yesterday, of what was experienced growing up, the what if, could of and should of in ones subconscious can be like demons that attack and block any possibility of connection in any real deep way to anyone. One might be all over the map, even when one has finally found that twinflame soulmate, we might not trust ourselves or them to fully pursue and embrace that, or might wait for the other to make all the moves, and well if they also have unpurged demons and are waiting for you to be the one to make all the moves, whether it is in a business or personal relationship or both, then there will be lots of frustration.  For anything to truly thrive, flourish, including relationships, even us as individuals one has to be willing to take the bull by the horns so to speak and confront whatever ones demons, release them, be purged of them and  be able to flourish on our path, the one is authentically meant to be on, and with that true soulmate twinflame who is on the same path, can be a mutual inspiration and we do the same for them, a real synergy.  Without this purging of inner demons one can not truly live a focused, thriving etc.. life.  There are different ways one can deal with one’s inner demons, but I am partial to prayer and meditation, so I hope this can help you purge your inner demons to move on to a great new chapter, to flourish in all things and be with that true twinflame soulmate in a very healthy happy inspiring union, as well as a path that truly reflects ones vocation, gifts so on and so forth.

Amen!

 

Metaphysical Look At Acts 6:8-15 and John 6:22-29

The Journey That is Life.

From a metaphysical standpoint it is first important to know the meaning of the names of those in the Bible, what they represent.  We will begin with that.

Acts 6:8-15

Stephen means “crowned”. and thus represents the head, crown, reason, orderly thought.  Those of balance, even when the Spirit stirs in them, don’t go off in a frenzy, all  balmy, no.   They heed the stirring, but they meditate, they seek to balance the head and the heart, so there is no discord.  Stephen was presenting well thought out logical we could say “law and order” arguments, but that did not well with those of pure emotion.  Unity says it beautifully when they say:  This cry of “blasphemy” is always made by those who are put to rout by the Truth—it is their last resort. So we find in our own minds this tendency to fear that we can go too far in spiritualizing our thought and its environment. When the Spirit of Jesus of Nazareth, or the Spiritual Man Demonstrated, shows us that this fleshly temple must be replaced by one of incorruptible substance, which will not be under the mortal law (Moses), we are apt to halt in our upward flight. But when the illumined Stephen is brought before the whole consciousness, “All that sat in the council, fastening their eyes on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.” In the face of all opposition Truth shines undimmed. If we look to the New Testament and to Christ we see a new paradigm.

I pointed out in a previous post about the beauty of the dignity of the Catholic Mass, but there is also a beauty in the in depth reasoning of the theology of it all.  Reason must accompany faith, just like it must accompany even a dream one is to pursue.  The New Testament takes us from Law of the Flesh, what in metaphysics is referred to as Mortal Law to Spiritual Law. Now the law of God, in and through Christ, Salvation is written in the heart, and the sacrifices etc.. are Christ centered not me centered.  Even though Stephen knew he had reason on his side, he got goaded into a fight, false accusations against him came up and he got goaded into full emotional outpouring and “I’ll show you” kind of thing.   It’s easy for that to happen to us, when one or the other, the head alone or the heart alone rule the moment etc..  What this is meant to show us is that we must never be goaded into going into either mode, pure academic or pure emotion.  Rather there must be a coming together of the head and the heart, which I will say is not an easy thing, far from it and is a lifelong journey of grasping.  However it is worth making the effort.

 

John 6:22-29

Substance, where does that come from? Think about the process of something coming to life.  First you have the idea, the thought, then you might write it down, or speak it to someone, then after that it begins to take shape in the physical realm of things.  God spoke it all into existence, the Word was with Him, was then made flesh.  That means God had this idea in his head already for creating a world.  It originated in God’s psyche.  Christ is the eternal life and bread sent to us, and we are to gnaw on him, which you can imagine seemed pretty barbaric to some, that notion.  The holiness of God, the wonders of the creator, the teachings of Christ, in Context please, not just hippie love kind of context.  He was clear about law and order, adhering to God’s moral laws, and sinning no more, so let’s keep that in mind always.  We must live in full consciousness that we are created by the Word of God, and the great gift given in Christ in the Word made flesh who willingly, this is key, willingly gave his life so we could gnaw and have eternal life, always have that sacred Christ to look upon dead, buried, resurrected as an example of God’s amazing grace.
