terror

Ahhh…..Facade. Sadly, we must part.

[00:12:49.06] A.J.: ……we lie to ourselves; we lie to others; we present a lie. Quite frequently you’re feeling, inside, one thing but you say another thing to a person. Frequently, that happens……. Somebody comes up and asks you ‘are you doing this or are you doing that?’ You assess whether you might get attacked; or you might get abused; or you might get whatever saying what you really want to say, and so you don’t say it. Right? It’s presenting a lie to others. The facade justifies lies constantly…..It’s willing to kill for itself. You’re harming people every single moment of the day, even, for the protection of this facade. Because the terror and the pain, the false belief that you can’t cope with both of those things, just causes you to feel that lieing is justified.

Excerpt from “Developing my loving self” seminar

IN THE SHADOWS

In the shadows of my life
I see wisdom shining through
Hidden deep inside me
Just like there is in you

This wisdom can remind me
Of all the things that I am
All the things that excite me
All the things that I can

I can decide my future
I can love and appreciate
I can deeply and completely
Enjoy everything that’s great

Like breathing and relaxing
In my comfy bed at night
Like revelling in my playground
The streets paved with life
Like having love surround me
My friends and family
Like everything I ask for
Coming surely as can be

I work and I worry
I wonder and I think
I exercise my free will
And sometimes I forget to blink

Blinking for a moment
Is what brings me clarity
Making everything So clear
It seems like charity

In the shadow of my life
Lurks the answers that are best
If I listen and be still
I’ll get the blueprint to my quest
