There Are No Original Ideas

flower_of_lifeThere are no original ideas or creations. They are only ‘original’ or ‘unique’ in the sense that we make the intangible tangible (or so we think/perceive) manifest through our individual mind and physical self. And like a fingerprint, there is only one ‘us’ in the physical relative sense.

The Reality is that we are recycling stations. We recycle ideas, thoughts, words, concepts, theories, philosophies, art… We may edit it, bundle it together, or shine it up in a way we think is unique or original, but that is just an illusion.

We are simply sharing our inner world with our outer world in every moment and ‘vice versa’… recycling what we perceive, think, see, know, and what we have always known and will always know in it’s various images, forms, shapes and syllables.

And so it goes… ad infinitum. – mu

We Don’t Own Anything

sunset at the marinaEarlier today I received an email from YouTube saying I had to prove I had permission to use the images, music, and content in my MuTube videos. I have a whopping grand total of 48 subscribers as of today and something like the same amount of total videos uploaded. I make it a point to always give credit and acknowledgment of all authors, quotes, music, and other content I use in my videos.

The YouTube Machine… like most, if not all other corporate machines is run on FEAR. “Ownership” = Fear. Copyright = Fear. Legal mumbo-jumbo = Fear. $$$ = Fear. Threatening to delete videos that do not comply = Fear. Deleting videos = Fear. And on and on it goes.

It’s the same thing with the USA Health “Care” Machine. Doctors fear lawsuits, so they order unnecessary tests and put people on toxic meds. Fear. Insurance Companies Machine = Fear. The Political Machine = Fear and fear-based manipulation and control. And on and on it goes.

(Fear is not cool. It creates a lot of unnecessary issues.)

My intention for starting MuTube  was to help other beings however I can, with what I’ve got, from wherever I am. (Cheri Huber said that in similar words). I do that by sharing information, inspiration, love, and beauty as I know and see it. That’s what MuTube is about. I’m not trying to get rich off of my 48 homemade YouTube videos. Unfortunately, now I will be sharing and incorporating less or none of other people’s  creations and beauty in my videos and only including my own creations, photos, and music. Fear is constrictive and limiting – even when it is imposed on us by others like the YouTube Machine.

We Create But We Do Not “Own” Our Creations. We are all creators. We may be under the illusion we ‘own’ what we have created. But none of us owns anything. Not really. Some of us are artists. I’m an artist. I’ve got the worldly letters to go along with that label too. (ASCAP/SAG/AFTRA/Random other letters, blah blah blah.) Big whoop, right? We are merely the temporary care takers, place holders, baby sitters of our manifested focus and creations.

As I said, I make it a point to credit and acknowledge the artists, authors, musicians, and others I quote, or use in my videos.

(Plagiarism is not cool.  People who plagiarize are covertly claiming the words and creations of others as their own. )

I won’t / can’t pay a license fee to use their art in my MuTube videos. I am also an affiliate for a couple of companies that I support and that help people and I will post links to those as they relate to my video content. But, I do not by any means make a living  from those affiliations or the very small percentages of a random sale here or there.

I own nothing of any worldly value to speak of. I exist on very little — on well below the US poverty level income. We don’t actually need much to exist or survive on. I was labeled as physically “disabled” about 25 years ago. If someone becomes so-called ‘disabled’ or their body gets sick or chronically unwell and they live in the United States, or some place similar with similar corporate, economic, insurance, health care (lack of health care is more accurate) policies as the US has, and they have no family or social support system in place to help them (or if your support system gets  sick or disabled as mine did), they will most likely end up like I did a year ago: homeless.

(Homelessness is not cool. It can happen to anyone. The only exception to that rule is the elite 1% in the US.)

My daily physical survival is still tenuous. I’m resilient and a very creative problem solver, but I still have not come up with workable, survivable solution to this challenge.

Something needs to change. I know we can do better as a global society. We have to do better. Or not. Either way we are all just passing through this illusion. Our physical bodies are all going to die, dissolve, disappear back into nothingness.

So be kind.

(Kindness is cool.)

Share. Help one another whenever, where ever, with whatever you can. Support one another. Love one another. We are all One Energetic Beingness.

What if we all knew that and started acting like it?

Awakened Activism

20130816-193442.jpgAwakening is not an invitation to disengage or ignore the world as it blossoms or as it burns. Realization of Unity and our oneness with All is not an excuse to remain sitting on a pillow in bliss for eternity ignoring the suffering and ills of the relative world. That is practicing a ‘selfish spirituality’.

We are to re-engage with the world and population that we are ‘one with’, in an active, passionate, and compassionate way. To be awake, is to ‘be the change’ in whatever way speaks to our heart and inherent knowingness of what is the ‘right’ thing to do in any given moment.

We are to bring the bliss and light and love into the world to shine it within the realm of human error and ignorance that is an inherent part of this experience. We can’t ignore or deny those things as being ‘unreal’ as long as we inhabit a physical body. Yes, in Absolute terms it is illusion, but while in the physical body (and mind), it is our responsibility – as awakened beings, to raise the collective level of consciousness and help ease the suffering of our other human selves in this world and universe that we know and recognize ourselves to be One with.

Mu Comment / Marianne Williamson Reply

lightbody-yin-yangMarianne Williamson: Okay, I want to read to you an email that I just got here, which is interesting. It’s a woman who says:

Mu says: Just a comment here. I hear so many people playing weak. Playing small. Playing a victim as if it’s all out of their control. I’ve been there and I’ve done that in the past. But I’ve learned that the greatest knowledge, peace, and strength lies in knowing – really knowing, that we are so much bigger than we think. We are bigger than our mind. Bigger than our ego. Bigger than food, bigger than any addiction. We do not have to believe these stories that are not even really true. It is just the mind and ego avoiding the present moment. Let go of the stories and the pictures in the mind that are other than our Divine Nature. It’s easy. It is just a choice. When we recognize our Divine Nature, we no longer play small, weak, or less than who we truly are. My prayer is that everyone sees and makes this connection. It is just a decision. Setting in motion what we might call a miracle. A miracle we create ourselves. Blessings, healing and love to all. Thank you.

Marianne: Marti! Thank you so much! Boy that was good. That was great. Also, you’re a good writer darling. That was really cool.

So… as Marti just said, it’s funny because I was just going to say to [seminar participant’s name], you know these stories that we have, like you know… ‘I was adopted…’ or ya know whatever the story is… “my parents did this…” anything before in the past… anything that was other than the love that we gave and the love we received, was as exactly what Marti just said, it was just a story. And when Marti says, just change your mind and get out of it…. you know I understand that mind that says, “Oh it’s not that simple”, but ya know what guys, on a certain level it is.

Because in any moment, ya know, I love that when some people talk about the Bible…when they talk about Jesus and the greatest story ever told. The greatest story ever told is the story of us becoming the people that we’re capable of being. And that’s what that story is. The story of the birth of the true Self. Fathered by God and mothered by our humanity. Sometimes people say why do you call God He? The use of the traditional Judeo-Christian language is in the CIM and that’s why I use it. In the Eastern religions they talk about the yin and the yang, and the yin is the feminine earth principle and the yang is the masculine sky principle. It’s very fascinating because to the extent to which you call God He, the human soul is She. And I said earlier in the call, it’s not that food or anything else can’t fill up the hole inside you; it’s there is no hole inside us. There is no hole inside us when we allow ourselves to realize that which is impregnating us spiritually every moment, and that is the Spirit of God. And when we in our mortal selves – in our bodies, in our mortal selves, allow ourselves to be penetrated as it were by Spirit, and make that connection, then something happens. We’re in a different place within ourselves, and as we stand within that different place within ourselves, moment by moment by moment, and yes it takes practice, then all the physical self will do is simply manifest that. Because our thoughts are creating and recreating the physical body every moment.

Okay, we’ve got [seminar participant’s name] on the phone… Did you just hear the email I read from Marti about giving up our stories? (A: No.) Okay, so you were adopted, and you recently found your family…”

Let Go of the Stories

969206_223880034433500_981849729_n I made a comment during a recent Q&A with Marianne Williamson in her 4-week online seminar called ‘Divine Alignment of Body and Soul’. It was a very spontaneous decision to write and submit this comment regarding holding onto ego/mind stories that do not serve us, ‘raise’ our level of consciousness or well-being, or lift us out of limited ideas about who we are and what we are capable of BEing.

I have observed how many, if not most people – in this case, ones who had created body issues for themselves, also seem to have a strong attachment to a negative narrative running in their mind – a ‘story’ or ‘stories’ related to their history or some type of experience, ‘trauma’, or set of circumstances ‘outside’ of themselves. As if something external was/is responsible for our thoughts, choices, addictions, and unhealthy or unloving behaviors towards ourselves and/or others. This type of thinking and ‘victim consciousness’ is what Caroline Myss calls “woundology”. I was hearing and reading about a lot of woundology-speak from participants during the seminar, so I wanted to briefly raise the topic (and share the transcript of the excerpt here), because I know that for most who think and speak in woundology stories, it is an unconscious, habitual, pattern that reinforces the ‘wound’, trauma’, behavior and thinking. I also know that something wonderful happens, and a shift occurs on a mental and deep cellular level once we recognize our very own ‘Divine’ Nature’. Everything changes. Everything.

QA: Mind Games and Love

Q: How does one fall out of love? I’ve been in love with the same woman for most of my adult life. [She does not know and is happily married with children.] I welcome suggestions.

Mu: Fall in love with yourself. The rest will fall into place.

Q: No… I’m not worthy.

Mu: If you really believe that, you are blocking your own blessings. When we free our mind of the self-defeating conditioned silliness, we liberate ourselves from our suffering. We are not here to be martyrs. We do not need to earn love. Just BE love. Everyone holds the key to their own self-imposed prison cell. Having the courage to use it is a choice.

The question as I see it, is why choose suffering and self-loathing over love and freedom? What’s the payoff?

Goodness & Love Prevail

believe21

Every single moment, every single day, there is someone somewhere in the world doing something wonderful, something ‘right’,  something kind for someone else. Even though we may not see it and probably won’t hear about it, it IS happening right NOW.

Goodness and love prevail in quiet anonymity, changing our world for the better one thought, one act, one person at a time.
