CAGES?



Unfortunately it seems to me that we are all living in
a world of cages. Holding tight to our lives we are trapped by our own ideas of
right and wrong, up and down, in and out. I believe we have created individual
steel-walled, reinforced mental cages. As esoteric, enlightened or spiritual as
we may feel we are, for many of us it is still only occasionally that we take a
chance to peek out and get a glimpse of, or a feel for, the world that others
occupy.



Having taken the brief opportunity to weigh and judge
the ideas and lives of others, we quickly dart back into the mental prison of
our own making. Is it fear that makes us act this way? Perhaps we are fearful
that our concepts are not as perfect as we perceive them. Are we fearful of the
possible contamination of our minds by other points of view? Or could it
possibly be that we are simply more comfortable with what we “know” than
the unknown and un-experienced?



Consider this: we do know that our physical world is
not at all as solid as it appears to be. Even our bodies are more air and space
than anything else. Quantum physics tells us we are the ultimate in
“spaciousness”. All those molecules and atoms we see as the real and solid “us”
are in constant motion: grouping, regrouping, changing. So much movement
happening continually that in theory any one of us could be displaying physical
sickness in one nanosecond and through a focused intention on our part be well
and healthy in the next instant. Change is that much a part of our reality. We
and our world are malleable.



So if we acknowledge that our personal bodies are very
much nonsolid and ultimately highly changeable, perhaps our ideas cannot be,
should not be, solid as well. Maybe we should approach our thinking with the
possibility of infinitely ranging, ever changing, and flexible thoughts rather
than finite.



If we take a closer look at some of our lively nighttime
dream adventures, it becomes obvious there is utterly no restriction of ideas
or thoughts within that world of ours. Creativity reigns in those productions. Perhaps
we might look at that level of fluidness as something to acquire or at least experiment
with in daytime thought.



On a scientific level, the only way advances have occurred
is through the efforts of those curious souls who were freely exploring and embracing
the principle of “what if?” I believe the time has come that we must begin to
see our world and our lives that way. I encourage you to bring “what if?” to
your everyday method of thinking. It will not hamper your decision making. It
will simply enlarge your possibilities.



For instance, what if there other ways to live, share
and enjoy? What if I can accept and love others more while judging less? What
if my ideas and beliefs could benefit from a good old fashioned expansion and
new direction? What if I could help mother earth in a hundred different ways? What
if I could see others from a higher point of view? What if I can acknowledge
that Today is as Wonderful, Useful and Beautiful as Tomorrow?



Always remember when those new ideas come, write them
down. Keep a journal. The simple act of writing your ideas in detail allows you
to access growth-filled power and energy for the expansion of their innate concepts.



As you are reading this, know that I wish you, your
family, your friends and your loved ones the dual blessings of great wisdom and
all pervasive love.
