Frog logics

Are you curious to learn how frogs try to reach Illumination? Then read my parable … enjoy!

It is silent in the frog pool, nothing happens there. Frogs live in murky muddy pools with standing water. But when there is no flow, the plants start to rot and the air begins to stink! The problem with this particular pool is: there is no light there! Thus the frogs organize a board meeting and decide to send an explorer into the wide world to look for a solution bring life into the pool.

The top frog – let’s call him Toad – volunteers to leave the pool. He crosses the reed fields to search for light and flow. Bravely he crosses the meadows and hops to the city, carefully avoiding dogs and cats. The city is but a desert of stone, full of stressed people. Dark clouds gather together when poor Toad desperately jumps further and further from home, in search for light.

Suddenly he sees a very sunny and bright place. He decides to knock at the temple doors where the Mages work. His tiny little brain starts to work like a little engine: “What if I steal some of their light!” The idea is so appealing that it sends shivers through his green slithery body. He decides to buy their course in Magic of the Light, in the hope this will enable him to take some light home to the frog pool.

Poor, poor Toad, he got really disappointed, because everyone knows it is not possible to steal light!!! True illumination does not come from reading books. True illumination comes from the inside out! It is the result of a good heart, compassion and hard work. On top of that, Toad finds out to his horror, that he cannot not bear the light! His eyes hurt, his stomach cramps together; he lived too long in a murky pool… On top of that his groins hurt from hopping for sooo long and traveling so far… He realizes that he has no option but to return to his pool as quickly as possible, without having achieved his mission.

Jumping back through the reed fields, the consequences of his failure painfully dawn on him. He realizes that, returning to the pool without any results whatsoever, would mean a big Mark of Infamy on his ego. His eyebrows rise, his heart shrinks. The next realization makes him shriek: “This can backfire on me; it can cost my position in the pool!!!”

So hopping home, Toad broods over a plan. He is exhausted, his skin is full of blasters, he almost got roasted by the light. His ego is severely wounded. Then, again, a flash of insight makes his day. “If I cannot steal their light, then let’s bring them down to our level!” Hopping home he broods out an evil plan for his escape…

At his return at the pool all the frogs joyfully greet him. Hopeful; will Toad have found a solution for their suffering? As a hero they receive him. They throw a party where Toad can shine and reveal his new found wisdom, that will redeem them all. Severely hindered by his wounded groin, Toad tries to stride in, but lame he climbs the stage they have prepared for him. He takes out the course book he bought at the mages’ from his rucksack. He coughs to call for a silence, to make his great announcement:

“Dear Fraterfrogs and Sororfrogs, I have conquered the elements, I have visited the Mages of Light. Let me reveal to you; the Light does not exist. I have found proof.” Toad opens the course book: “Look here, I found typos in their course book! Since we have no course books of our own, and thus no typos, We Are Better! Let’s battle those bastards and bring them down!!!”

The Dance of the Opposites

People constantly try to influence us. In families, in social environments. In electiontime you only need to push a button of some digital screen and the same heads pop up, starting to convince you to vote for them and they try to touch you emotionally. Between religions and philosophical groups the same thing happens; if you belong to ‘the others’, the opposition makes you look bad, mad even dangerous … It is tearing apart, damaging and does not bring anyone any further.

To make sure to get you on their side influencers make look their opposer look as dark as possible. That does not mean that the people who oppose your ideas ARE demons, it only means that the opposing forces are no longer dueling in a fair way. Why does this attract such a public? Why does it touch you? These battles between different ideas or interests are not fought on large podia, on television or on the internet, but right in your heart! The opposers are aspects of yourself and fight inside of you. They represent conflicting aspects of you: they personify your dark and your light sides. In their battles they activate your deepest trauma’s and your most sacred beliefs. They cause you to balance between hope and fear. When the battle of the opposites becomes really nasty only one party loses, and that is the LIGHT.

The past days I have been sitting and meditate how I can maximize my contribution to the Light for the situation I am in at the moment. What choice offers the best fundament for the long future? Or step into middle of the battlefield where the crisis is biggest now….?

 

The Battle for your Mind

Nowadays the Power of Magic is ridiculed by the media and by the masses. But this in itself is a dangerous development because it puts people to sleep while the biggest battle that we will be facing in the coming decennia is starting right now; the Battle for your Mind!
I will explain you why. Magic is the science of influencing and manipulating the powers of the subconscious mind. It has always been used to help people grow, to heal and to educate societies, to waken people up to higher values of life.

Nowadays this power is ridiculed and has come into the hands of advertisers and propagandists. They use our computers and our television screen to broadcast certain ideas into your mind by advertising campaigns. The place of entities is filled with products like M & M’s that jump from your kitchen closet right on your plate. Magical spells are disguised as jingles and songs that link feelings, desires, images together. Like mantras they enter into your subconscious mind at the moment that you are vulnerable; when you rest on your couch after a long day work and open your rest-brain to relaxation and entertainment.

I am very curious to learn if you recognize this because we need to wake up here to reclaim the freedom of our minds.
