Most of you reading this live in a first world, well-developed country. Not to knock that, but did you know that the first world comes with its own set of issues? I’m not talking about 3rd world country issues, like lack of sewage, fresh water, clean hygienic healthcare, education, housing, jobs and various others. Let me talk about some of those problems. Maybe you have something you want to mention below?
1) NO INTERNET/PHONE/COMPUTER – Do you ever hear people complain about not having access to the internet? What about those who cannot go a day without using their phone or computer? Do you see that they are complaining about something which ultimately contributes nothing to the world? You can live and thrive and survive without these things, which makes it a no. 1 first world issue.
2) I’M BORED – Yeah, people still go on about being bored. Do you not think they have enough surrounding them, like the above, without becoming bored? Oh, but going for a walk is boring. Trying something new or going somewhere is boring. Honestly, I’ve laughed so hard at people who say they are bored. Do you know how those starving children feel? What about those who don’t have an education or fresh water?
3) I’M HUNGRY – Unbelievable that people still say this. Granted there are struggling families, but for the most part a lot of people are well fed. They have food at their disposal, to buy whenever they want at an affordable price. That isn’t the case in 3rd world countries.
4) WARDROBE FULL OF CLOTHES BUT NOTHING TO WEAR – Oh, it must be so fucking painful. I’ll just list a few more:
5) SOGGY BISCUITS IN MY TEA
6) IT’S REALLY HOT INSIDE BUT FREEZING OUTSIDE
7) MY NAILS ARE GONNA GET RUINED
8) HAVING TO WAIT IN LINE
9) BAD HAIR DAY
10) COLD TEA
Do you think you have any that might be worth mentioning? There are so many more first world problems, including not being able to go to the gym, having to wait to have your hair styled, having nothing to listen to in the car, sick of your job, feeling fed up with life and lots more!
I grabbed a copy of The Particle Zoo by Gareth Hesketh from the local library last month. Sadly not got around to reading any yet, so had to extend the loan. I will get round to it tonight if possible. It looks like a fascinating book, the search for the fundamental nature of reality, filled with scientific diagrams and pictures and charts of bosons and tau and more. I think I will learn something. I haven’t really studied science since school. I know we learn continuously but I am selective about what I learn about, as I am sure some of you are too. I don’t like to fill my mind with useless nonsense. I do believe in atoms, and this book was perfect. I wanted to read something about quantum mechanics and perhaps a book that outlined the sub-level of reality, what is behind the scenes. I was already aware of atoms and the cellular level etc, but digging deeper might reveal something more interesting. I suppose searching the earth for the answer to reality is a good start, especially if atoms make up matter itself.
If you could read something that told you about the ride that is the teen years, would you? What about the existential crisis that is the 20s? Beyond that there is nothing more than mundane truth.
‘The joys of being a father.’
‘You’re a father?’
‘No, but I observed a father.’
Unspoken challenges of the old gentry, abusive of the creators power. Existence and living are not to be more than observation. If we ever found the truth of being young, it would be after our retirement, or in the words of the young, our expiration date. It feels like a sell by date was always the way to go, to keep people fresh in packets like the dry broccoli leaves that you peeled away from the stem.
‘I’ll never make the final run, I’m too old.’ Say it again and say it with justice in your heart.
‘To not make the final run, is to be the final run.’ Or so it seemed, like the plastic that had faded on small car toys tossed into large dirty crators in the ground, or the sesame pool of the lagoons filled with bottles and disposable knives and forks. If you had enough of them, could you faction of look of contempt?
‘Say you did not want to know the truth?’
‘You are the one to ask the question, and that means something.’
If the truth of the young is to be free and to be liberal in speech and mind than to be happy and content with the present and to be together, or to ride the long seas of rapid change through hurricanes and birdstrikes, shall we suddenly wither to the floor and then roll around in petty arrogance?
‘Two many, or thrice the lady came to suns glorious rays.’
‘Passion does not exist beyond desire.’
Say they, the ones with the gorgeously glamorated fiction spectacle. An organic being with robotic features. The mouth that moves in time to the sound of the radio, or the hand that types in time with the clicking of the clock. It will not stop until they become engrained like rice in the supermarkets on the shelves, unable to move without being chosen.
A selective breed of a particularly selfish generation who choose self-imposed rights and choices over the emotions and feelings of others. Traded the empathy and compassion for immediate relief and instant fulfilment. Long gone it seems it the genuine traits of the heart to seek to be together, to enjoy the company of a family, like the talking siblings who might be of different gender, of the same group. A gathering with sacred and immortal bindings to reality, a connection shared which has been replaced by material items, greed, lust, gluttony and the most irremovable of all, the undying loneliness of the world. Do people not want to gather together for meaningful and happy events without alcohol or other substances? Or do they stick it out because they have to appear good or compliant or risk looking like they don’t care. Surely the man who stays alone for the night than spend the night with bickering individuals is more in line with the values of self respect and honesty than one who parades the mask all evening at his souls expense? What of the woman who cannot face her husband for fear of lack of love, or the mother who will not comfort her children for fear of lack of reciprocation?
‘Do you want to live a free life or to be enslaved to the idea of truth?’
‘Truth does not mean lying to oneself, or to others.’
Certainly a lie can spread far and wide and deceive en-mass. And the outcome should not be compliance like uneducated humans in a field grazing on grass and corn. Education is the pillar of a developed society, yet it is a system that has become only one focused on a limited number of possibilities.
‘What are those limited possibilities?’
‘Well, they are simply these.’
That education is a tool to allow the economy to function without children to get in the way of working parents;
that the poor standard of education is deliberate so as to not provoke any possibility of independent thinking of free thought;
if they don’t tell us anything that is true, we will grow up to become just like them, ignorant and self-imposed;
it is better to allow people to think they are smart, than to actually teach them anything worthwhile.
So the list could be extended, but the topic of education is divisive. It is ancient, since the times of the Egyptians, education has helped people to become better at understanding the world around them, from medicine to mathematics to astronomy, art, science and beyond. Philosophical topics arousing from the law for example, built off of principles of morality, good, and the concept of God and the natural law as a state that humans too should be aware and educated on. A mere distraction or a deeper, more worthwhile and actionable protest than studying the hidden mysterious of the Aztecs.
It is here, in this world of consumerism and selfish desire, and students and young people laced with the poison of intelligence that dwindle the fire of compassionate yearning. In a time of darkness, or enlightenment, a man formed to flesh and blood, came to sacrifice himself.
‘He did not have selfish desire, rather, unconditional love.’
A love that was boundless and capable of transcending time. Millions of people have learned of the son of God, yet very few understand the message of his sacrifice. Our we bound to be stuck on our own crosses, or can we too gather the love within our hearts to dismiss perceptions of age, colour and gender, and come together to forget what we think we know and join together as one?
Does the effort to assist a lady to cross the road, require more effort than a degree in a university? What about the young man, newly employed who seeks to arrive early everyday in the hope he will impress his boss? So that he can go out at the weekend, but is too busy to talk to a friend to sort something out for ten minutes? Acts that only serve the ego and the self, do not develop the self or the soul, and instead accumulate to a machine, programmed to work and to sleep and to consume.
‘Consuming and working sound fine, just pay me.’
‘Money is not a resolution for young or old.’
It is not the answer to even a million problems and neither is mindless talk and propaganda of helping others. It is not buildings stocked with refugee donations, unmoved and untouched. It is not a charity donation box on the checkout counter that stands full for a day before being put in the till. It is not the man who stand in line for a sandwich, just so he can avoid going to the canteen at work.
Or the family who’s parents are not happy to see their children wearing cheap clothes or buying normal or cheap food, for they need expensive, organic and gourmet products and anything less is poor.
The disillusioned are trapped in hell, money cannot possibly equate to wealth or to love. It can be the devil, and have a mere fleeting and familiar and even similar effect, but is quite different. It is the young generation who feel the need for money the most, yet they do everything in their conscious capacity to avoid the truth, which is not to seek money. Being happy doesn’t mean a better food quality, or bigger living accomodation, or more material belongings, or more clothes or better hair or a fitter body, it is something that lives in all of you, right now. The problem is people are so caught up looking elsewhere, that they forget to stop, and to look around, and to smell the flowers and look at the sun and the clouds.
They forget to feel the rain on their faces and begin to live in a sort of disconnected reality. A reality where they cannot be happy, because the truth is they haven’t even started to look for it, they have been distracting themselves this whole time. If they took a moment to observe the birds and to feel the soft grass beneath their fingers, they might suddenly wake up and understand just what happiness is.
In a recent post I talked about the possibility of being able to see angelic beings. It is fascinating the idea that there are actual intelligent beings out there, from the creator, who are sent to aid and guide us. I am going to talk briefly about something called numerology, which concerns meanings in numbers.
Numerology is the pseudo-scientific belief in a divine or mystical relationship between a number and one or more coinciding events.
You might be interested in reading more about numerology at the following link:
Angels are supernatural beings who are the servants of God. The bible is filled with passages of how they communicated with humans. In the bible, they are not women or children as depicted in art and statues of society, rather they are given names and those names are associated with males, such as Gabriel and Uriel. Uriel was responsible for warning Noah of the coming flood.
Angels and numbers are said to tie into one another, with angelic being supposedly communicating with humans using numbers. It is a particularly special way for angels to send messages to us, because not everyone will notice, and not everyone will care what the potential significance of seeing the numbers is. Understanding the meaning of the numbers however, will allow you to communicate with your angels and guides.
Angelic numbers are the most commonly experienced signs from the angels, and most of the time people do not expect this as they are under the illusion that angels appear in more obvious ways, which is simply not correct. To see numbers repeatedly could be angels trying to alert you to their presences, or a coincidence. Faith and intuition are big factors in how you perceive the situation, and how you feel about it. Repeatedly seeing numbers can be a reminder to tune into the meditative and relaxed state to lift your vibration to connect with a higher level of guidance from your angel, who is with you.
They give guidance frequently, through other means too. Angels can channel messages directly to us, in dreams or through an insight. It is not uncommon to get flashes of inspiration or to learn something from them during meditation, any of the psychic senses allow you to perceive the messages.
But what numbers mean what? When communicated, can be easily missed and even seeing them might mean nothing if someone is not aware of the phenomenon of the meanings or value of numbers. The universe is one of numbers, of symbols, so it makes sense to communicate with them. When you are unsure what a repeating number means, or a number that it shown to you quite blatantly, you need to understand it. You could look it up on the internet, or you could try and interpret it yourself. Angel numbers are distinctly different although similar to numerology – angel numbers being a carrier of divine messages. You can read a little more here:
0 – a sign you are connected with God and that everything is about to go your way, you have chosen the right path and are heading toward becoming a better version of yourself. 1 – that you may be dealing with negativity. 2 – that you should be optimist and have faith in yourself, hold on, because things will get better.
Numbers 11, 22, 33.
11 – Continuing to see this number is an indication you are nearing a period of fulfilling your true purpose in life.
22 – A sign from the angel that you are about to turn your dreams into reality. You are about to gain divine knowledge, and an indication that you must have faith in your angels.
33 – Reminding you that divine source has blessed you with increased ability to create and manifest everything you desire into form.
To see a 22 for example would be the equivalent of 2+2=4, which in itself has multiple meanings. It also means the power of 2 is amplified (2×2). Being that you should have faith in yourself because things will get better, and you will turn your dreams into reality. A complex message, but only given meaning by humans, and actually, when you dig deeper, to get the real meaning would be to pay attention to every detail in your life.
The first step after recognising these numbers as significant or with meaning is to try and understand a bit more about the deeper meaning behind them in relation to your current situation. Remember, angels can use their voice to talk to us, and sometimes when they are present may in fact brush over us like a soft life feather which can mean they want you to know they are there with you. Opening your heart to love and forgiveness and to enable them to talk to you more clearly may just allow you to hear them. Do you feel sad or lonely when you have that feeling of static electric, or hair standing on edge? Do you want to have a clearer picture of your future? Be sure to engage with them by being receptive and open minded, you have nothing to be afraid of when you want to try and listen to your angelic overseers.
If you feel like you are more connected to God and that angelic beings might be trying to talk to you, through numbers or otherwise, then perhaps consider thanking them for their efforts to assure and guide you. You could consider meditating on a prayer, or further giving glory and thanks to God. You could develop a new skill or build something that you have been working on.
