Looking in the Mirror

Spiritual Revelations for those seeking Humanity in Humans ~~CordieB.

A Spiritual Riddle – I’m the reflection and a reaction of being untrue to self – and perceived selfishness

My existence emerges quite often in the middle of the night;

Sometimes I bring anxiety; Frequently, I induce unrealistic fright.

Oftentimes I’m an instant reflex of a web of grave deceit;

Many feel I can be eradicated by disclosure; Allbeit revealed most indiscreet.

I was borne when humans went against their true natural flow . . .

I quickly grew enormous from false judgments which were sowed

Into the conscious being as a way to tame the actions

Of any action committed without perceived fair karmic reactions

Many occasions my existence is sparked by the master manipulators

Who use fictitious sliding scales of love as unloving validators

"If you love me you would do this; You wouldn’t do this if you knew . . .

I would never do such nonsense; because of the love I have for you.

You would go along with my way if you were down for me and true"

I’m sure you’ve heard these statements; perhaps you’ve said them too.

Know your self and love yourself and you won’t fall into the ageless trap . . .

Of the Master Manipulators who will trick you to take the rap

For anything that goes against your true heart in the name of loveless love…

And continue with the punishment until they rise abreast of and above…

The manipulation that was taught to you and for which you practice too

When you ask more from another than you know you would honestly want to do

I arise when spirit, mind, and actions are not on one accord

I bring traumatic injury to the mind; I cause such destruction; you can’t afford…

To keep me in your presence; as I’ll reek havoc on the spirit and the flesh

I’m the reflection and a reaction of being untrue to self – and perceived selfishness

Who am I . . .   (click below for riddle answer)

I’m the unwitting Spirit of Guilty Consciousness

There is really no such thing….  Who is the prosecutor, jury, and judge. And… who gives the sentence?  We have the power of free will.  We are responsible for each and every decision we make or think.  To thine own self be true; when we are, truth will prevail and the false illusion of guilty consciousness will disappear into thin air.

~By CordieB.


Quote for the Day: 

This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

~William Shakespheare

As always, Peace, Light and Love. . . .

How beautifully put and true, it is the age old jail in which we can often find ourselves encaged. True freedom comes from knowing oneself and knowing that it is boundless without limitations. Beautiful!

I raised my brow to this one… I know not how you manage to capture the perfect words for such deep intentions. You are a master of words…

interesting words, thoughts and insights – a hearty thank you. I’d like to share with you something I have been gleaning insights from recently, too. It’s a book called Harmonic Wealth and it’s all about finding harmony in your life in all areas – financial, relational, mental, physical, and spiritual. It has some really good tips about how to engage all five pillars (or areas) of your life, and to learn more about how they complement each other. Rather than dealing with each issue individually, maybe take a look at the bigger picture.
Here’s the link to that book I recommend: harmonicwealth.com/read

@SanityFound. Boundless, indeed – there is no feeling more wonderful than freedom, other than love. When we can encompass both – it’s eutopia! Thanks for the love – Peace, light and love, CordieB.

@Rawdawgbuffalo – Thanks for the love. Those false judgement folks can only get under our skin if we allow them to; but oh my they akin to a fly buzzing around the ear; sometimes we just have to get our fly swatter and swat them flat! Peace, Light and Love to you and yours – . . . .sending happy birthday bubbles to that little princess of yours too!

@Enreal. Thanks for the love and encouragement. You know just what to say when I’m about to give up on creative writing. An angel you really are! Peace, Light and Love . . . Cordieb.

@ James Ray Fan – You are a glammer spammer – I’ve seen you all around the block lately. You’d better lay low before the block people kick you off or report you to the authorities. You’re quite harmless; so stay on if you wish; just don’t peddle to the kiddys. Peace!

So true, so near and yet so far, wise words once more.

I have read this once and I know I will have to read it again..
its part of what i have experienced and more also -about what I have to take responsibility for- even though I know I am being projected onto, blamed even still ( though I have said nothing else)
..And that in itself I have to go back and look at the deeper reasons for that. I did not listen to my intuitions and it would not be the first time. either I also have this ablity to read people..and I sometimes I am spot on but I go ahead anyway..ignoring the warning signs, perhaps because I have one more thing I have to see in myself and also take responsibility for the ability
.Now I am realising just how powerful that learning process is- going way back to my childhood, and reacting how we blunder in wide open to things….
I spoke at length to someone last night someone very wise and knowledgeable and he showed me, taught me, and challenged me just like your poem has.. about all of this and more..great words should do that as all great art and wisdom should
Thank you again

Gravitation Force is the Ultimate Creator, this paper I presented at the 1st Int. Conf. on Revival of Traditional Yoga, held at The Lonavla Yoga Institute (India), Lonavla, Pune in 2006. The Abstract of this paper is given below:

The Universe includes everything that exists. In the Universe there are billions and billions of stars. These stars are distributed in the space in huge clusters. They are held together by gravitation and are known as galaxies. Sun is also a star. Various members of the solar system are bound to it by gravitation force. Gravitation force is the ultimate cause of birth and death of galaxy, star and planets etc. Gravitation can be considered as the cause of various forms of animate and inanimate existence. Human form is superior to all other forms. Withdrawal of gravitational wave from some plane of action is called the death of that form. It can be assumed that gravitation force is ultimate creator. Source of it is ‘God’. Gravitational Field is the supreme soul (consciousness) and its innumerable points of action may be called as individual soul (consciousness). It acts through body and mind. Body is physical entity. Mind can be defined as the function of autonomic nervous system. Electromagnetic waves are its agents through which it works. This can be realized through the practice of meditation and yoga under qualified meditation instruction. This can remove misunderstanding between science and religion and amongst various religions. This is the gist of all religious teachings – past, present and future.

Beautifully expressed, but such a horrific reality, describing a “sentence” that we bring on ourselves, but oh, the sensitization it takes to first discern that the one you so love and are so trying to please and love back is NOT really loving at all, but is an abuser…an emotional abuser, a bully wanting you to take the blame for his or her immense shortcomings and meanness, which you unwittingly do until you realize what they have for you is not love at all, but disdain, contempt, even hatred – which really does not belong to you; this disgust is what they feel toward themselves, but do not have the courage nor honesty to face; it is, essentially, their shadow-side that they do not want to see, so they project it onto you, expecting you to carry it, and bear the punishment for it – for them – in the name of “love.”

Once you see the real truth underlying the deceit and manipulation, you can take steps to extricate yourself from the deplorable role you are expected to play and that you have unwittingly expected yourself to play. But what is equally horrible to the recognition of the abuse you have sustained for years, is the final realization that this person (that you truly love) will probably never change, and as much as you love them, they are unable to love themselves, truly love themselves, and probably never will be able to…. But they insist on keeping up an “image” to maintain their arrogance and egotism, yet that very “front” they work so hard to put up actually prevents them from truly getting the love and acceptance they really need. However much you see that reality, they cannot, and therefore they are dangerous to you and to themselves because they have a morbid compulsion to keep up the pretenses to cover their own evil and meanness even if it feeds an insatiable monster intent on destroying their own personhood (and yours).

It is tragic; it is painful to watch, but in the interest of one’s own healthiness and of one’s love for the other, one must extricate oneself from being their victim (and therefore, enabler to their denial), and move on with one’s life, wiser (for the abusive experiences) that not everyone who says “love” is actually “loving.” (“All that glitters is not gold.”)

And, to stay healthy one must face the reality that “taking” the emotional beating from them so that they don’t have to face their meanness, is not really loving them; it is enabling them to stay stuck. It is not your responsibility to fix them nor to enable them; it is your responsibility to have your own boundaries of healthiness. As scripture says, “The wise man sees danger, and seeks refuge.” Proverbs 27:12

Many blessings to you, and thank you for your artful expression of such a crippling conundrum in life,

Angie (Mother Grieving)

@Molly. Thanks Molly. I’ve been somewhat lost for words as of late. . . lost for thought too…but this too shall pass. Perhaps I need to mosey on over to Mollys, as a visit always gives me inspiration. Thanks for being. PLL, C.

@Neilina. Thanks for the inspiration!!!!! Stay true to self my spiritual sister!!! PLL, C.

@Duma Key. It’s only as far as your mind perceives. In fact, it’s right there in your grasp, awaiting your catch! Catch the spirit my friend. Thanks for the inspiration, as always…PLL, C.

@Wyld Writings. . . Thank you for your inspiration! Stay true to self; don’t allow anyone or thing to take that from you my kindred sis! There is a story I read the other day, very short, that I’d love to share with you.. I’ll post the link on your blog. Blessings…C.

  cordieb wrote @

@Angie. Very deep and powerful words here. . . I feel you are hurting deeply; perhaps I’m wrong. Whatever you’re going through, remember to love yourself…unconditionally. When you do, and only when you do, will you have the capacity to love others the same – and be true to self, as only then will others be able to love you, your true self (not what you portray), unconditonally. Peace, Light and Love…C.

‘In Scientific Terminology Source of Gravitational Wave is God’ I have presented this paper at the 2nd World Congress on Vedic Sciences held at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi on February 9-11, 2007. The Abstract of this paper is given below:

For Centuries, antagonism remained between science and religion. Science and spirituality require to be fused. An integrated philisophy is to be developed. It is written in the scriptures that entire creation is being maintained only through love or force of attraction. In Persian it is known as quvat-i-jaziba. It is on account of this force that the entire creation, which come into existence through the combination of small particles and atoms, is being maintained and sustained. The creation or universe includes everything that exists. In the universe there are billions and billions of stars. They are held together by gravitation and are known as galaxies. Sun is also a star. Various members of the solar system are bound to it by gravitation force. Gravitation force is the ultimate cause of birth and death of a galaxy, star and planet etc. and various forms of animate and inanimate existence. Gravitation force is the ultimate creator, sustainer and destroyer of the universe. These are the three attributes of God. Providence has located within the human body a spiritual faculty. When this faculty is developed like physical and mental faculties we find that Truth-the goal of science and God-the goal of religion are one and the same thing.

Speak Now; but don't forever hold your peace!
