Roots


 

Where do the roots of your personality lie? Think of your actions, your emotions, your thoughts. Where do they originate? Think of the choices you have made, why you made them.

Were all your choices what you picked up in society, what you were taught by your parents, what you learned through your own experiences, or was there more to them than all these?

Certainly much we think comes from what we are taught, either by our environment, or our experiences. But what about what we feel?

An infant can be happy, sad, angry, jealous, mischievous, tricky, playful, content, worried, awestruck, confused, loving.

An infant or a child will many times cry if around or picked up by someone with a bad heart, but will calm and sleep if around someone with a good heart, how do they know?

The heart can be bright, or it can be dark. A half moon if measured by the amount that is lit by the sun. All the phases of the moon are measured by the amount lit, no light is considered no moon.

Why didn’t the tribes all over the world measure by the darkness of the moon?

Why did the various people make ceremonies and/or prayers based on the sunrise?

Why is our sleep naturally aligned with the light of day, instead of the dark of night?

Why do our eyes measure the light of day, instead of infrared?

Why do our bodies respond negatively to darkness of the heart?

Why will people spend so much time making excuses for harm they bring to others?

Why will people convince themselves that something is good for them, that it makes them happy?

Where are your people from, what did the world we see mean to them?

Why must everyone be Christian, why can’t they be something else?

Why must any new thing come from an old one?

Why can’t a beginning BE a beginning, instead of an extension or adjustment of what is currently?

Why do so many see a mask, and think it’s change?

Why can’t babies teach adults how to change?

Why are babies considered ignorant when they know when they are happy and when they aren’t?

Why do academics respect the sacredness of a wife, but ignore the sacredness of our ways?

Why is a spousal union worthy of more law than the happiness of that union?

Why is growing old scary to the point of hiding it?

Why are rotten grapes better when aged, yet people are worse when aged?

Why is old age past the prime of life, instead of BEING the prime of life?

Why does a seed grow into a tree, yet a baby grows away from the knowledge they were born with?

If we have to collect knowledge through the years for our minds to understand, how is it the heart knows? Where is the heart rooted? Where is YOUR heart rooted? In the darkness, or in the light?

  1. Generally…My is rooted in LIGHT. I feel Love , I love – so even when darkness would like to affect me (and darkness I understand as whole lack of love – wrath, suffering, jealousy, depression, sadness, pride, lust, dishonesty, violence and temptations to subdue to those, as the are very strong emotions and can enslave by chemical reactions they create, can be addictive ) – with loving, feeling love and believing in Love I can always find ways and solutions to fullFILL those lacks, black holes – appearing in Spirit/ soul/ oneself because of different experiences and events – with light (Love) – forgiveness, smile/ joy, self discipline, patience, humility, purity, compassion and understanding. Sometimes it’s hard – but in my humble opinion always and every time worth at least to give it a try to not be “darkened”.

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

    You are a child of Creator. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of Creator that is within us.

    It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    - Marianne Williamson, Return to Love, 1992

    (Thanks for whole lotta questions. Now have long list to make at least month of “daily meditations” to ponder on this all you asking here about. :D :D )

    • You just gave me an idea for another blog, more questions to ask too ;)

      I will freely admit I have had my spout of darkness. It is like you say, an addiction, or at least it can become that. Well said also about the chemical process that comes with it.

      It can be a circle we trap ourselves in, choosing not to break free. It can sap our strength, making it harder and harder to climb out of. A great downward spiral of our own making.

      But I think like you say, we have to have the reserve of love and kindness and respect, as it makes a cushion for the bad that is part of life.

      We can’t forget who we are and where we came from. Even if it’s many generations gone as is the case with some white tribes. Those Ani (people) are still the roots we are tied to. I feel my roots in the Cherokee people of my great grandmother.

      Hitler in all his insanity, still rooted his reich to the German people and their ancestry. He used their roots to bring great harm to others, but those roots can just as easily bring great happiness.

  2. Roots are the anchors that bind us to our origins,they define us
    as individuals, people, and as nations.
    Customs, tradition, culture, and language are the proof of that.
    When our roots run deep we are grounded in these things, they
    are strong and apparent, when they are not we are not.

    • Very true. We can be rooted to the goodness in ourselves and be nice people, but can still not be rooted in a culture and society that supports that.

    Oh many the things to think and may be better to think the while
    to make the answer but those ones who do not make the roots
    to grow deep live the pretend life and say oh I would have this
    and I would have that and I am made to be this thing or I am made
    to be the other.
    we have heard this one good man to say better to make the decide
    and be the be one thing or the other and we think this is so and makes
    the root to grow.
