A surfeit of helicopters, out-of-town consultants, midnight gridlock, men with no names planning bridge at Red Rock Crossing more real estate agents than places to live, Javelinas threatening to dance in uptown.
What to do?
Don’t rent rooms to robots, they don’t pay well.
Instead, fill your Fill your house with Vivaldi and bake bread.
Or go outside and listen to a Raven’s chatter.
Do they have happy lives?
Are they happier than we are?
Look up at night, find the three sisters of Orion’s belt, and memorize them in Arabic!
On a sunny day, learn to skateboard at Posse Grounds
Raise funds for climate deniers to Miami to visit the Mayor when he is up to his ankles in water.
Stop sniffing the juniper and don’t drink anything after 6:00 p.m.
And for goodness sake, stop weeping for dead roses that fill gardens in winter. They will be back!
By all means, avoid movies that have no plot and see movies that have a real ending.
While you are at it, avoid faux leather, Franken food, and scary politicians.
And if nothing else works, invite a circle of friends from all walks of life to gather at flaming sunsets on the Posse Grounds. Join hands, give thanks, see yourselves lifted up high above computers, newspapers, and traffic jams and celebrate in your mind’s eye the total beauty of a creek, a flower, a woman, a small child.
You will discover love is the only way out, the secret of secrets. And maybe many will think of the good news amidst the gloom.
One may also discover that worldly developments do not need antidotes: Last year, 295,000 people around the world gained access to electricity, and every day another 305,000-gained access to clean drinking water, and a huge number of people around the world escaped poverty for the first time ever.
Happy New Year to them and to all,
Bishop and Walker
So very well spoken.
Thinking about what we don’t want, only draws what we don’t want.
Resisting what we don’t want, only draws what we don’t want.
Unconscious consentience (unconscious contribution with our thoughts) only builds what we don’t want.
Hard to believe that allowing, grace, nonresistance and love is the only way to contribute in a useful manner. But who are we to make decisions from our puny perspectives? Better we learn about unconditional love, i.e., no resistance to our Maker and line up with what is true.. Then things get interesting.
As we learn how to listen to the Ravens and the suns and the stars; as we learn how to partner with Innate Intelligence (there’s a place for no resistance!), we become exponentially contributive!
(and the puny perspective goes away!)
Observers thrive in good time
And suffer in Bad.
Visionaries Thrive in All Times
Beyond resistance lies a world of synchronicity, harmony and order
Said another way, resistance brings us everything we do not want
