Getting Out Of Drama Class

The drama triangle (Victim, Persecutor, Rescuer) is in action all around us and most of us don’t recognize it. Everyone’s favorite position is playing the Victim and moving from Victim To Persecutor and back again. There are many facets to this game of acting out. This unawareness continues the game as long as we remain ignorant of the game and that we are in the game. Once awareness of the game is in place, it is easy enough to stop playing the game by moving to the center and out of those dramatic roles. Habitual patterns are strong, but with awareness comes new strength.

There is no joy in the drama game; however, joy is always available to us any time we choose joy by moving into the peace, love, and harmony that exists outside of the drama triangle. We are the choosers.

Act Great!

What is the key
To untie the knot of your mind’s suffering?

What
Is the esoteric secret
To slay the crazed one whom each of us
Did wed

And who can ruin
Our heart’s and eye’s exquisite tender
Landscape?

Hafiz has found
Two emerald words that
Restored
Me

That I now cling to as I would sacred
Tresses of my Beloved’s
Hair:

Act great.
My dear, always act great.

What is the key
To untie the know of the mind’s suffering?

Benevolent thought, sound
And movement.

— Hafiz

What Kind Of God?

What kind of God would He be
if He did not hear the
bangles ring on
an ant’s
wrist

as they move the earth
in their sweet
dance?

And what kind of God would He be
if a leaf’s prayer was not as precious to creation
as the prayer His own son sang
from the glorious depth
of his soul–
for us.

And what kind of God would He be
if the vote of millions in this world could sway Him
to change the divine
law of
love

that speaks so clearly with compassion’s elegant tongue,
saying, eternally saying:

all are forgiven–moreover, dears,
no one has ever been
guilty.

— Kabir

Can’t Carry That Weight

Arrogance

The weight of arrogance is such
that no bird can fly
carrying it.

And the man who feels superior
to others, that man
cannot dance,

the real dance when the soul takes God
into its arms and you both fall
onto your knees in
gratitude,

a blessed gratitude
for life.

— St. John of the Cross

Temptation In The Garden

The thought came to me today that the snake in the Garden of Eden that tempted Eve represents our own egos. As we allow our egos to rule our thoughts, consequential emotions, and our behavior, we create a lot of drama. Seriously, a lot of drama. For so many lifetimes. Until each of us decides that it is time to change ourselves and build the life we always wanted in Love, as loved, loving all, and at peace as well as in joy with all of Creation.

Focus. What We Give Our Attention To.

“There are those who believe that the world is getting more and more desperate. We are here to tell you that the world is getting better and better, and better, and that every experience you have causes you to launch rockets of desires, and Source comes in response to those rockets. And the best thing about your birth and death is that the resistant ones die and the allowing ones are born. And with this combination of contrast that keeps you launching new and new desires, it’s no wonder that the Universe is expanding in this marvelous way and that life is getting better, in every day – and in this moment – for everyone who insists on focusing there.”

— Abraham, Esther Hicks

Resonating As Love

“When you resonate as love, you are the gift of love to others. And as they resonate with you, they begin to heal and become who they are as well.

One person lights up and gives permission to the next and to the next and to the next. And as consciousness changes on the individual level, it can change on the mass level as well.”

— Paul Selig
The Book of Love and Creation

I Have Learned So Much

I
Have
Learned
So much from God
That I can no longer
Call
Myself

A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim,
A Buddhist, a Jew.

The Truth has shared so much of itself
With me

That I can no longer call myself
A man, a woman, an angel,
or even pure
Soul.

Love has
Befriended Hafiz so completely
It has turned to ash
And freed
Me

Of every concept and image
My mind has ever known.

— Hafiz

Who’s Listening To Our Self-Talk?

“Be very careful what you say to yourself
because someone very important is listening…
YOU!”

— John Assaraf

It’s easy to change what we say out of our mouths to others if we are trying to change to be more positive and upbeat. It’s another thing to make that same commitment on the inside. You’ve heard the phrase, ‘they are their own worst enemy,’ and this is the place that the so-called enemy can rule if we let that happen.

Better to be so cognizant of what we are saying to ourselves that we know in an instant when it is appropriate to shift gears and find better feeling thoughts.
