Some Words XIV

56_121_31_162321More from the fox….

Hey, listen, I’m only gonna tell you a few more things in this venue. I have some other business to attend to, so I’m going to leave pretty soon. Sometime later on, I’ll come back to answer some questions for you, and you can do whatever you want with them. If you, or anybody else, has any questions, you should start thinking about them now. I’m offering you this handshake with  living information as an opportunity that might help you find some happiness in your life.

So. Get this: ya’ll are too hung up on the world ending. The world isn’t going to end– it’s a bad idea to keep this idea in your head that everything’s going to come to a close someday. Remember what I said about prophets and how they’re no good any more? How many times have people said the world’s going to end, and has it ever happened? No. It has not. If somebody tells you the world is going to end, that person is trying to sell you something.

This also applies to “major shifts in consciousness,” or “earth-shattering cultural events.” There’s really no such thing. Yeah, a lot of terrible things might happen to a lot of people all at once, or a lot of wonderful things could happen, too, but the place where Things Happen doesn’t work in terms of “beginnings” and “endings,” only “keeps goings.” 

Like, consciousness, dig? Consciousness is an inherent part of the Things That Happen. Without consciousness, you couldn’t have measurement, and without measurement, you can’t have Things Happen. So consciousness is going to continue, as long as there’s a thing in which to continue. You can’t really be “saved” from Things That Happen while they’re Happening, see? That’s why all the people who claim to be “Savior” lately have missed the mark. 

There have been a few perfectly good Messiahs in the world, but none of them really managed to get their messages across. All you humans want the same thing: you want to be comfortable, to not have to worry about getting hurt, to have nice, respectful interactions with one another (okay, some people don’t want these things, but they’re Critter-led and DOING IT WRONG).

Why hasn’t any of the good advice given to you, by perfectly good people who only wanted to help… why hasn’t this advice worked? Well, a lot of it has. Most people are perfectly nice. What hasn’t worked is that ya’ll have never really been “saved.” The reason for that is, the only thing anybody’s ever needed to be saved from is unhappiness, and the only person who can save you from unhappiness is you.

How do you save yourself from unhappiness? Through sufficiency, consideration and family. That’s all there is to it.

Hey, want to learn a cool trick? I can teach you to levitate, to shoot fire from your hands, and to see through walls. Nah, I’m kidding— ya’ll have already figured out how to do that stuff with your airplanes and video games and windows. But, I can teach you something even more amazing: I can teach you how to calm down and pay attention.

It’s like this: when I’m walking around in the forest, hunting a meal or whatever, I know how to read everything around me. Not just the physical stuff, but the entire chain of events that led to the physical stuff. I know what the other animals were when they were young, and what they were before they were born. I know the kinds of seeds that grew into the trees around me. I know what the ground was before I walked over it, and where the water that flows through the forest came from.

Lots of people talk about meditating; I think this whole “using meditation for insight” is kind of self-centered. It’s better, and way more useful, to meditate by becoming extra-aware. There’s an idea that meditating is hard; meditating is actually really easy. Most creatures that live in Things That Happen already know how to do it. What’s hard is to tell when you’re doing it right. What you have to do is this:

Still yourself, and breathe. Pay attention to your breath. You can count it, or name it, or even look at it if it’s cold out and you can see it. Only think about your breath. Now, start paying attention to the Things That Are Happening around you. Soon, if you do it right, you’ll be able to feel God using you to pay attention, and you’ll start to get extra information, like what a thing is doing where it is, and how it got there, and what it was previously. Then, start noticing how Things are reacting to you, and move along. 

That’s all there is to it! The Spooky Lady can help with this– she’s especially good for helping out with meditation. The cool thing is, once you get really good at this, you’ll be able to use it while you’re walking around, or when you’re talking to other people.

Try it out!
