It’s amazing how it’s always all there.
So many cues, clues and symbols. Opening doors into new worlds just waiting. Waiting for the decoding and the processing and the recognition.
Sitting right in front of you.
With the popularity of Dan Brown novels and all the scholars and resources and the internet you would think it would be easier to get it.
From my own experience it takes help. It takes love and it takes having a decoding moment through the frustration, that offers the clue, a key stone providing the way to fill in the picture. Like The Miracle Worker exhausting herself to get Helen Keller to connect to something, to breakthrough the darkness, to find the sign and symbol that would lead to a light filled recognition. A flash of a memory. Water would open the door. It nearly killed both of them, but once the connection was made. Helen Keller was able to unlock a way to communicate, open up to new possibilities. Once you get “water” is this… instinct. feeling. emotion. You can use it to decode all the hidden messages in everything. It is all possible. Getting that first key stone is the hardest as blinders are built into the universal framework but ultimately with care and work and faith seeing through our clouded and skewed vision becomes our reality.
Elaine Strich had it from her show At Liberty “I am mad as hell that I had to go through what I had to go through to get to what I’ve gotten to.” And. Here I am. We’ve all gone through what we needed to go through, we’ve seen the outcomes of behavior, we’ve cycled through the disconnection, we see the truth. We know what doesn’t feel warm and friendly, we know what closes our hearts, we know what we need to be. We are not going to be able to hide behind fences, technology, or whatever defenses we imagine will help us, the planetary population has eradicated that possibility. We are like little rabbits walking into the light for the first time naked into the perceived battlefield. Realizing how connected we are, realizing there is no one left to squeeze to make a profit, no dumps left to fill. No ways that can’t be inherent in our means. We are interdependent on each other. We are here to help each other.
When we see. Life is easier. Love is easier.
Seeing leads to the promised land.
