Do We Dare Keep Our Hearts Open?

Funny how things evolve in the pursuit of truth. We’re emotional beings. That’s why the matrix makes everything out to be so cold and scientific.

When I watch certain movies or musical presentations or see a touching human moment I get emotional. I can’t help it. People are emotional, I’m emotional, and I feel them.

When we stop feeling we’re through. Empathy is what separates us from the reptilian mindset that is destroying humanity and our planetary home. We must never be like them, consciously or subconsciously.

Why Feelings?

Like you, I’m just observing and empathetic. It often hurts but it feels good at the same time. It’s the stuff that life is made of and we need to feel alive and not be ashamed of it.

We just need to connect. It’s fundamental. I don’t listen to a lot of music as it affects me so strongly. Especially unknown tunes, I don’t trust them. Same with movies, I don’t like to be overwhelmed or taken places without my permission or knowing the purpose. But, like you, I still do at times. And sometimes it’s a great experience, or at the least a good learning one.

Way more important is the drama of life itself and what is playing out in the world around us. How do we react, or should I say handle our reactions? Do we agree to shut down our empathy for those who are suffering or in need? Do we just stand idly by and suppress the natural outrage that tries to surface when we see cruelty and injustice all around us?

Are those kinds of feelings prompts from our consciousness that need heeding and expressing instead of suppressing?

I think we all know the answer to that.

Keeping Our Lights Burning and Chins Up, In Spite of the Outlook

There are a lot of choices each of us make everyday, like our diets and other “habits” and their eventual consequences. The bigger challenge is our thoughts, emotions and resultant actions. And in the world we live today, a lot of very unsavory news is coming at us all the time and it takes its toll. It can get us down and discouraged if we’re not careful.

The good news is we’re always potentially in control and can take the reins any time we see fit. We just have to raise our consciousness levels and respond accordingly.

I know, easy to say. But it’s true.

When I look at the horrific effects of DU (depleted uranium) on the children in Iraq and Palestine (and I make myself look…we need to see it for what it is) and the white phosphorus dumps on innocent Palestinians, or the long term Dow and Monsanto chemical warfare deformities of the violently assaulted Vietnamese population, or see another autistic child knowing it was induced by vaccines, my heart goes into overload.

You don’t want this reality in your world.

The rows of coffins (many lined with or simply carrying drugs from Afghanistan, don’t be fooled) of sacrificed American young men and women returning from an engineered deliberately unwinnable war arena makes me nauseous as well.

Then you get into chemtrails, GMOs, Fukushima and the rest, never mind things like mind control and ritual abuse, and you can really lose it.

But I’m not going to close my heart. In fact, I need to do the opposite.

There’s strength in empathy.

The Agenda is to Desensitize

Feelings are powerful motivators. They’re also transmitters. We can’t afford to shut down, no matter what the barrage of degrading information the PTBs throw at us. That’s why information and knowledge are so important. When you understand the “who, what, how and why” it’s happening you can intelligently distance yourself from the wrong type of impact and maintain your conscious awareness.

But it’s OK to let it hit home. It is grievous, and that’s part of our experience here. We also know there’s much more beyond all this that keeps us bouyant.

They say many nurses become callous having seen so much suffering. They no longer feel as they once did, they think they can’t afford to. I don’t know, it wouldn’t be easy seeing that kind of suffering day after day. But getting hardened is another thing.

Much of the World is Traumatized

Remember that whole countries live in that condition of seeing suffering constantly. How would you like to be an Afghani, an Iraqi or a Libyan, watching your people be slaughtered and the world around you trashed by people saying they’re saving you? How would you like to live in Iran or Syria knowing you’d done nothing wrong and the bullies of the world were spreading lies about you and threatening to invade and destroy your nation and possibly your family?

Meanwhile the terrorist charade continues its march subduing whole populations through media fear campaigns and staged terror events. Even those not at war are suddenly also in the arena with phantom terrorist bogeymen around every corner to justify fascist clampdowns.

The reality is the bad guys are the ones pointing the finger at the innocent whom they want to rule. At home and abroad. A total and complete lie and reversal of what the world is being told.

We Cannot Succumb

We have to keep our loving touch. We have to keep our sense of humor. We have to keep our sanity in this wicked, insane environment.

While all reason has been turned on its head to give us this Orwellian nightmare, we cannot succumb to their barrage of twisted lies, inferences, intimidations and tricky false assumptions and deductions. We must stay alive and awake.

We cannot sleep like the masses who’ve refused to see the painful truth. Ours is to see, feel, express and empathize.

True consciousness cannot do otherwise.

And wise, loving actions that make a difference will naturally follow.

Keep on daring to love.

Much love, Zen

    Thank you Zen – I love this. And I feel exactly the same way. It is SO hard to see and feel the pain that is going on around us in this world. Right now I am reading a book called ‘A Thousand Sisters’ – by Lisa Shannon (Brilliant, amazing, incredible woman!)… about the women of the Congo (Lisa started women for women – to raise money for women in the Congo) What is happening there – still today – and into its second decade !! – is beyond belief. I have to force myself to keep reading. But only small bits at a time. The brutality – the torture, rape, murder – I end up crying so hard, I can’t read, I can’t do anything. The pain in my heart, so intense. My partner tells me to stop reading, but I’m making myself read it because as I say to him ‘we need to know this. I never knew this was happening. Where is the outrage from everyone on this planet? How come we don’t know about it?’ I feel perhaps a tiny ripple of the pain of the woman I read about. (We are all connected, and if we are sensitive we DO feel others’ pain).. How can we imagine what they have lived, and are living, through??!! You are right Zen – we have to ‘see, feel, express and empathise.’ It is the least we can do! Thank you by the way for your wonderful articles – always resonate…
