“A group of friends are uniting to nurture and celebrate the Earth for a day. We call it Earth Day. From a metaphysical perspective, what’s the value, if any, to acknowledge corruption that abuses and injures the Earth and mankind? We explore." ~Joe Simmons
The good news is that the group members of us are resonating at similar vibrations in the endeavor. Based on the Law of Attraction like energy attracts each other. Therefore, we know that we enjoy aspects of energy alignment because our paths have crossed. It's just a matter of flipping a few rocks and recognizing the semantics of language to see it more clearly. This need/opportunity/imbalance is a part of the divine design, built in so that we can feel the love that we are. In the human form, we feel the love in the process or in the movement to balance, in my opinion. That's what the manifestations of the physical plane/domain provide instantly.
A perspective is that we're operating in a play ground of distinctions or recognizable/identifiable manifestations. We call it the physical domain. The words are born inherently, by their definition, telling us that a comparison is available and intended. We know at "important" levels that we need to compare in order to recognize a thing or to bring a thing into our experience or to perceive a thing at all.
The experiences or perceived circumstances serve to remind us about what we desire or about our purpose. They give us a radar screen, albeit of limited sight, to elect goals and conjure structures for fulfillment. We choose goals in order to set us onto paths that are most likely to give us particular experiences that we desire. The structures for fulfillment give us the tools and a playground on which we place the paths to get there.
Let’s try on that we are organically one with all things that exist, animate or not, and that each part of us is alive and conscious, including the rocks and air of us. From there we can surmise that we are all one system working together perfectly despite our ability/inability to perceive it, all things are flowing to balance as we wish, remembering that we desire/"need" the movement in order to feel it. The "it" is the love that we are. We can't feel it in stillness. Notice how semantics can creep in with that idea. Keep in mind that thoughts count. Thoughts are included in the category of "things" and silence is a space in which we allow thoughts to flow in. The purpose of words is to have us look in a direction. We may use them to move forward in the exploration, rather than to allow them to stop us in our tracks.
That said, we've conjured all these contexts as playgrounds to have experiences. The ultimate goal, however way we disguise it, is to feel love, in my opinion, and I invite us to try it on like a coat.
We are "born" in the pursuit to feel and realize the love that we are, and we have inherent human-centric perspectives about how that should look or happen. Being inherently human-centric, our primary reference is the significance that we are predisposed to place on the human form. It is our primary platform for comparison. With that, we have all these opinions, rules and whatever else we conjure to keep the game/contrasts/conflicts available, which perpetuate an environment of flowing to balance.
We like it because we feel the love in the movement. Think emotion, the space of feeling (present participle, e.g. form of verb, happening in the now, action, movement, motion, to move). We feel via emotion. That is where and how we feel the love. Therefore, we intend the imbalance so that there is always movement to balance. Think water flowing.
Corrupt corporations, government, etc. are real entities, albeit "fictions" in our experience, and we (the individuals) give them life by the attention we feed them. They are real (distinct from "true') as they come into our experience by the thoughts, contexts, consequences etc. that they represent that help to trigger experiences. We rely on the contexts that they bring to give us comparisons to something we desire to experience. We (all the parts of us) are in partnership. Thank you. Think gratitude. Love flows there. Conflicts are cracks through which love flows. We are conduits to the flow. We either allow the love to flow through us, or we don't.
To communicate the idea, let's say we use "corruption" to recognize the things that are not corruption and to help us to identify what we desire. In this space of endeavor, let's say we desire to be well, healthy and to feel love. The Earth of us is included in the We. We use plural forms of words (and sometimes third party references) to recognize that the one that we are is made of unique parts, as is the human body microcosm. Still, we remember that we are all one and accountable for the well being of each part.
It helps to know from where we start, to know the substance of the platform/foundation/playground in order to pursue what we desire and we do not need to dwell on it. For example, if we are using a cane to move forward, we need to know whether the floor is sand. Then we may build a suitable cane so that we are able to move forward more easily.
We remember that we give life to what we think about and entertain most often. According to the Law of Attraction, whatever is present in the moment will expand. Therefore, we can surmise that we have an opportunity to choose what we are placing into existence (including thoughts) that we wish to have expanded. It appears that we choose love.
Earth Day is an opportunity to love ourselves. The practice, according to the Law of Attraction will attract more love, which is exactly what we want. By creating an Earth Day and even the distinction of us that we call the Earth, we’ve conjured a context that we feel gives us permission to be loving, openly, and to cause love in a way that more of us might recognize, accept and embrace in a sitting. It’s a way we plant seeds of love to cause more of it.
That’s my opinion. Thank you for the opportunity to look and remember.
