We all have our own sense
of reality.

This world is the realm
of our combined realities.

Free Will.

Therefor, life isn't nor can it simply be "what we make it", but it is how others make it too.

We live in a symbiotic world- all is connected; ALL is inter-dependant, in SOME way.

'NO man is an island'.

Nor any creature, living thing, or organism. 'Tis the nature of COLLECTIVE CREATION. If that makes sense.

People want some sort of control over life, they feel. They are all battling for control. Only they are going about it in the wrong way (The Celestine Prophecy book/ film speaks of this).

We are living in a 'Savage Garden' right now. But perhaps we could live in another kind of garden?

Did anyone ever wonder about how everything...being made simply of energy...could be transformed, by a higher power? The combined power of each and every one of us that is WITHIN. Each person can do a little, make mini miracles. Think, then what we could do together.

Did anyone ever wonder that the image of the Lion and the Lamb....One day....could be REAL?!

Yes, REAL.


Because...mind= matter. And thought is energy. All matter consists of energy. It is as simple as that.

When you are powerless, as a child is, as captive animals are, life isn't what you make it but how others make it for you....no-one is entirely free...in this dimension anyway.
The thing which makes me most sad in life is just that- the powerlessness of those just mentioned. And adults too- prisoners of war and such, because we are all children, at heart. Powerlessness....Free Will...how we all struggle for power in life in the wrong way (battling for control over others) which destroys another being's Free Will...all these things are how I FEEL that I KNOW this is really a 'Savage Garden' we are living in.

When we real-eyes that we a truly One, we no longer want to control others; it is a very deep understanding.....it is letting others evolve (evole= love) at their own pace...it is understanding that the only real evil is ignorance itself; in that sense of blindness, of not seeing what those wiser can feel....this is true compassion. Defend others, by all means, but do it in the spirit of wisdom and only using whatever force is necessary.....We just need to see the bigger picture....
we are all like pieces of a giant jigsaw.....

Were we born into this world simply to experience the difference of existence which isn't pure bliss; pure love? To experience a world which is the product of our consciousness, collectively? To experience Free Will to the extent where we can abuse another being's Free Will....resulting in suffering? Is this the ROOT CAUSE of ALL SUFFERING in the world?

We CHOSE this, didn't we?

In case anyone was wondering, I was talking about the idea why people should choose to experience life in the flesh when once they were perfectly at peace in the 'kingdom of God'....

I know I was rambling yesterday. I was talking about what is possible. However, on further reflection, I don't think a global revolution is ever going to happen- people just aren't united enough. We need to focus our energy on working on ourselves as individuals and in groups. We can't change others. Change has to be subtle. I wish those in power in the world could see this too!

I found this link which backs up what I am trying to say scientifically http://www.livingthefield.com/

Anything is possible. We are the ones who place limits over ourselves, what we believe to be possible or impossible. How far can You stretch your imagination? I'll re-phrase that. How far will you ALLOW your imagination to stretch?

We have to consider the Universal Laws that are immutable, every action has a re-Action, everything we do is connected to ALL, so we must consider the Good of ALL, in every thought and action we have. You get get what you Give!

We chose this existence to Feel, have emotions, and senses, this Earth Experience, has it ALL!
As Above, So Below. ...

I just found this amazing article on google:

Although the phrase of “the lion shall lie down with the lamb” is one of the more popular quotes from the Bible, it’s really misquoted. In the King James version, it’s the wolf that dwells with the lamb, and it’s a leopard that lies down with a kid, and “the calf and the young lion and the fatling together.” (Isaiah 11:6)

But in today’s world, there really is a lion that lies down with a calf…in fact, she adopted and nurtured a total of five antelope calves.

It’s a remarkable story of the love of one animal for another, and it seems to personify the truth that not all natural enemies are exactly that—natural and unavoidable enemies.

On Christmas Day of 2001, game wardens at the Samburu National Park in Kenya watched as an adult lioness frightened off an oryx antelope mother, and picked up her baby calf in its mouth. Because lions normally hunt these antelope, they assumed the lion would kill and eat the baby. But then the unexpected happened.

The lion, named Larsens, began to nuzzle and fondle the frail little creature. Behavioral scientists first stated that the lioness had probably mistaken the oryx calf for a lion cub. But then the lioness showed her awareness of the calf as another species, because she allowed the calf to return to her natural mother to nurse.

For more than two weeks, the lioness Larsens nudged the little calf along, all the while allowing her to return to her antelope mother for nourishment before chasing the mother antelope away once again.

The fragile baby oryx was seen crossing the savannah with her lioness “mother,” and would curl up by her side for naps. Tragedy struck one day while the lioness napped by a water hole. While the baby oryx was playing, another lion attacked and killed it.

According to the wardens, Larsens was enraged when she woke. Ten times she circled the lion that killed her oryx calf, roaring all the while. Then she disappeared from view.

Larsens was seen a few weeks later, following herds of oryx antelope. “She never kills them,” said one warden. “When she is hungry, she goes after warthogs.”

But Larsens would again amaze the rangers with her mothering instincts. On Valentine’s Day, 2002, lioness Larsens was spotted with another oryx calf. And just like the last one, she’d adopted the calf as her own.

It seemed Larsens had learned the need to protect her new baby from other lions and predators. She guarded the new baby ferociously, chasing off any lions that approached. “There are other lions trying to attack the lioness to get to the baby, but the rangers are watching them and the lioness is protecting the calf,” said park warden Mark Lenya-kopir.

“This is one extraordinarily maternal cat,” said lion expert Jim Cavenor. “I've seen lions adopt a few small animals, but they usually end up turning round and eating them after a couple of days. But she seems to be totally fixated on this little one.”

Unlike the common assumptions of most people, animals do think. Their thinking is not some robotic response to environmental stimuli, but an active, cognitive reasoning. Larsens is proof of this. She adopted a series of what was normally a “prey” species for lions, and protected them as her own. She knew she could not provide nourishment for them, and allowed them to return to their mothers for food.

Larsens is just one example of how animals react with emotion, with feeling and with true knowledge of what they are doing. She ultimately adopted a total of five oryx calves, giving all of them fierce protection and tender care while ignoring her own basic needs. Her actions have made her a legend among the people of Kenya, and they bestowed another name on her because of their reverence for her loving nature.

The Samburu people call her Kamunyak—the blessed one.

"It's just a ride & we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings & money, a choice, right now, between fear & love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off, the eyes of love instead see all of us as one".....
