Friendly Fire

We spend most of our lives wrapped up in some fantasy or other, conversing with our internal imaginary friends about how well (or not so well) life is going, playing out scenario after scenario in rehearsal or reprisal of a fictitious event that may never occur or indeed never did… certainly not in the way the psychic projection would have you script or rescript it anyway.

This internalisation is a hamster wheel for the mind and eats away at our sense of reality, creating an external world that doesn’t end up looking anything like we imagined simply because at the crucial moment of creation, i.e. now, we are off somewhere in time trying hard to change an unmalliable moment.

Now don’t get me wrong, the mind is a powerful thing and the universe is shaped by thought, intention and conscious action but attempting to transform something outside of time as far as I’m aware is still the stuff of Jules Verne.

Here in the now the most valuable resources exist that can correct the past and determine the future but those resources do not fit in a science experiment or lab… but they do reside within the human heart the first is forgiveness and the second is authenticity.

Principle 3: I AM Human embraces compassion in all forms for self and for others, and though it doesn’t erase the past it does grab a hold of the lesson, the blessing inherent in every past action whilst letting go of the pain, anger, guilt, or whatever residual negative emotion is attached to the event thus transforming the past from a tragedy into an experience.

Principle 4: I AM Truth is a magic spell waiting to be spoken aloud, for in a word there is power and in truth lives potential fuelled by that power… creation itself, but not just any creation, the creation of that very thing you have, for so long been searching for… that thing, that whilst you are rehearsing with your imaginary internal friends the scenarios you fear, dread even, and how you might react to them and what countermeasures you will employ to defuse them, is withering and dying in the bud… because your truth has become a drama on repeat inside your mind instead of the authentic yearning of your heart that is being all but drowned out by friendly fire.

These two Principles though are a mere flourish to the real message here which is simple: if you aren’t present you don’t get to choose the gift.

Principle 2: I AM Detached
