Things Are Looking Up for Me!

Mar 04, 2018

Lately I’ve been feeling victorious!  I feel in control of my life.

I used to always be busy hurrying—now I have all the time in the world!

What’s my secret?

Perhaps it's because I can see things from another angle.

Did you know that War is Peace?  All you people fighting… I see you now as clear as an unmuddied lake under an azure sky of deepest summer.

Did you know that Freedom is Slavery?  All you free wills trapped in your ties of separation… I see you now as clear as an unmuddied lake under an azure sky of deepest summer.

Did you know that Ignorance is Strength?  All you smart people biting the delicious apple to leave Eden… I see you now as clear as an unmuddied lake under an azure sky of deepest summer.

We love you Big Brother!

Why have things my way?  I’ve given up.  I’ve surrendered.  I am not I.

I'd been down so long it looked like up to me.  But it's not up to me!

Ironically, only by surrendering has the not-I has come upon what the I was searching for all along.  So here I am.

Yes, things are finally looking up.
