Mythtery, Oh Mythtery
by Lee Broom

 

Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others.

Unfold your own myth.”

~ Rumi

Does it matter that I got it right?

Must Eleven rhyme with Heaven?

Why not Seven?

Isn’t it enough that I experienced Love?

Must I care……

That I err?

Or whether?

Or never?

Who is to judge?

When will it stop?

Perhaps if  I lock……..

The door.

(I shall permit only speechless animals in my life.)

(I shall nod my head and tap my toes to the changeless rhythm of the many Faces of Fear and then I’ll be able to continue with my studies.)

Will I still be able to experience Love?

I wonder what Rumi would say,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

(What is so Mythterious, Lee.)

Comments, please.

Thank you.

Love is…….

Love is the Power that heals.

Love is the Power that overcomes fear.

Love is the Power that forgives.

Love is the Power that is offered with no expectation of anything in return. Love is Completely Unconditional.

Love is present when we cry.

Love is the energy contained in the laugh of a child or the cry of the warrior holding the lifeless body of a fallen comrade.

We humans, like everything else in nature possess a motive for everything we do, even when that motive is an unconscious event. In other words being the self-centered critters that we are, Love as a deliberate act is unnatural. We cannot “do” Love. But we recognize the feeling it leaves in us, usually after that feeling ebbs.

Where does Love come from? 

Love is within arm’s reach.

What is Love?

Love is…………….

That’s all.

Q: Do you know how to have love in your life?

A: Help someone. Ignore the temptation to entertain an expectation of reward.

Do it.

Do it again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

One more thing.

Accept Love when it is offered.

Learn to say “Thank you”.

Learn how to learn.

I’m no guru.

Someone gave me a hug.

Someone told me once, that even though I thought I had lost everything,  I still had something that someone else needed.

Cool, huh?

That happened again today.

Thank you Big Lover. Thank You.

ALAPIO (Accept Love and Pass It On)

To accept Love is to Be Healed.

Healing begins when Fear is vanquished.

Perhaps it is the other way around.

Fear returns to the shadows and birds begin to chirp.

Fear reveals itself at first light.

The Light of Love is felt with the decision to Accept.

Acceptance lights the Path.

The Path is Today.

This is the way,

To Heal;

To be Healed.

Love becomes the Lover.

And Fear becomes a fading memory. ALAPIO

WE DO. GOD IS.

Gambel's Quail

The necessity for knowledge, even total knowledge does not exist for The Ultimate Power, Any amount of knowledge has only one purpose and that is to solve problems and of course Omnipotence has need of nothing. Knowledge is purely a human possession. Omnipotence is the Direct Opposite of Need.

God IS Love. We have Desire.

God IS Love. We  have fear.

God IS Love. We  have knowledge.

God IS Love. We  have kindness.

God IS Love. We  have tolerance.

God IS Love. We  have prayer.

God IS Love. We  have curiosity.

God IS Love. We  have fun.

God IS Love. We  have strength.

God IS Love. We  have passion.

God IS Love. We  have access.

God IS Love. God’s limbs are our limbs.

Desire demands Knowledge. Love is Awareness of all.

Desire wants Life everlasting.

Love IS Life Everlasting.

Desire is for Now.

Love is for Ever.

Now is the essence of Ever.

All actions possessed of The Blend of Desire and Love lead to Success.

Faith is needed only for the hesitant.

Accept the Love and Pass it On.

What was it that killed the neighbor’s kitty?

Curiosity killed the cat, caught the catfish and fed Fred. Curiosity is the key to change, discovery and the next thing. Without curiosity there would be nothing new; there would be no joy, no one to read these words. Curiosity feeds fin, fowl and the hairy beast; it draws us to the stars and transforms chimps to champs as the pursuit of solutions straightens the back, calms the brow and finds more and more uses for finger dexterity.

Curiosity compels those who possess it to improve; it enhances desire and defines progress. Plato possessed it. You possess it. So do I. So does the rat in the Skinner cage. Curiosity gives way to discovery, change and an opportunity to gather knowledge. What will we learn? Can we depend on what we learn? Knowledge often disappoints. Today’s knowledge is soon replaced or enhanced by tomorrow’s startling revelation. We depend heavily on that which promises to fulfill our need for Truth. Failure to do so often results in supplanting knowledge with belief. Knowledge depends on measurable, observable events. Belief can be supported by knowledge but more often relies simply upon habit or on faith. If the supply of observable events is low, the believer may seek information which seems to support a preferred theory. The most readily available tool for adding strength to these methods is the tool of Affirmation. Where Curiosity is a means of Discovering Reality, Affirmation supplies a method for Creating Reality.

Though gathering knowledge brings with it the joy of discovery and the alluring thrill of adventure, it is also very stressful; we are incapable of spending all our waking hours in pursuit of new and better answers to the questions which assail our brains even as we sleep. Life does not provide enough time for gathering a supply of information adequate to the task of bolstering the confidence of those who seek it. There is only one immediate reward, the alluring promise of Truth. However, one who is experienced in the techniques of gathering information understands the temporary nature of that which appears to be a revealed “Truth”. The ardent researcher realizes that the quality of this objectively acquired “information” is dependent to some degree on additional “News” as yet undiscovered. Some of us can live with that; most of us cannot. We need something reliable, something Never-changing. Some of us can satisfy this need with a philosophy of observable, behavioral principles of social behavior. Some need something more reliable, something which though difficult to prove is equally difficult to disprove, therefore somewhat defensible. In this category can be found the religious and the atheists of the world, both intent on securing the title of Most Knowledgeable on the subject of God. The greatest of their differences seems to be whether to capitalize God’s name.

“Seek and ye shall find” says Scripture. “Wait long enough and you will be provided with plenty of support for whatever you choose to believe” taunts the Scholar. There are testimonials supporting every idea known to mankind.

The religious among us argue for the virtue of Faith. Yet a well founded religion built over time already has all the answers. Some might argue that a much greater degree of faith is needed on order to live the life of a Scholar. The Scholar, unlike those whose Rock is contained in their religion, lacks the reassurance of “the Group”. This individual has already observed Change. The Scholar has very little to depend on, in the way of Timeless Information and must maintain an extremely high level of Integrity. The Scholar is motivated by adventure and knows the Joy of Discovery discarded by many of us as we leave our childhood behind.

In order to maintain the level of integrity required to live such a life, the Scholar must face the possibility of living out an existence filled with loneliness. It is much more difficult to build a society around a concept of “Lack” than of “Abundance”. Only the Religious have “All the Answers”. The Scholar is faced with the temporary nature of discovered information. The religious among us have for the most part, an explanation of life which supplies them with a hope of “Life Everlasting”. The Scholar must settle for knowing that though he will not be provided with enough answers to turn this lifetime or anything to follow into Nirvana, there is a well supported belief that Science and sound thinking can and must improve the lot of all mankind. The same can be said for those whose life is supported by their Religion.

If the reader was expecting to be persuaded to one or the other method of gathering information, I apologize. And to those who fit into neither category, I offer my condolences. To know only a desire to satisfy the most temporary needs of the moment must be the most desperate approach to life, though I doubt that such knowledge is disturbing to chimps.
