The Thread

As I was reading some part of Ram Das website last night, this quote just kind of hit me deep inside so I thought I would share it with you!

"We’re determined beings to the extent that we are unfolding in a completely lawful and orderly way. It’s karma. I can look back through all the different minds of my life and see the same thread to all my successes, failures, epiphanies, depressions, cravings etc. Since I was a kid, the seed for awakening was there. I have been dancing the beautifully tragic dance and getting caught time and again. And then I see Blake remember, and he advances on to the next phase of his being. “If you could stand back far enough and watch the whole process…”

Remember the thread is always there no matter what!

Realty Television

Recently I've had a lot of free time on my hands so I spent several hours a day watching reality TV. At first it was quite novel and in some ways entertaining. Primarily most shows are a Birdseye view of other individuals, families, or businesses as they live and interact each day. Inevitably, they all turn into dramas and issues surrounding, drugs, alcohol,sex, fame, relationship conflicts, etc. etc.
By about the third month I began to tire of the same old story on each show being regurgitated again and again in changing circumstances and different forms. Then I realized that these lives of drama and tragedy are the basis of huge profit for not only the characters in these shows, but also for all the producers, employees, and networks involved. Millions and millions are being made at the expense of human misery and tragedy. It is almost as bad as blood diamonds that have financed civil war in Africa and all the carnage that it entails. We live in an age when the world needs to see and be inspired by the highest aspects of the human spirit and soul.Unfortunately, societies appetite for the opposite still grips both the individual and collective consciousness of humanity. Please remember when you watch these shows you are supporting this system of darkness and tragedy whether you understand it or not.
