Hello. Welcome back to the Temple of Equated Forces and thank You all so much for Your patience. I hadn’t planned to leave for as long as I’ve been gone, but it was necessary. I mentioned in My last post that I was developing a plan, that I was asking the Universe to destroy the economy. I asked that this be done by the 22nd as a special gift for a special friend. For the first time, I noticed nothing of any significance on the 22nd of March. There was all kinds of economic speculation, but speculation is nothing new. And if the Universe gives Me nothing, I can tell You nothing. And yet I still felt something was going to happen, or perhaps it already had and I missed it. But all the while I was still developing My own plan, finishing the renovations in My apartment and preparing it for the next tenant. I was preparing to leave, to ‘be’ the change I wish to see in the world once again.
‘Being’ the change I wish to see in the world is the fullest expression of Magic. It is the only way to clearly communicate what one truly wants in a language the Universe can understand. Because the Universe will give You everything You need, everything You ask for. And as much as I would love to see a world that can exist abundantly without money, it isn’t practical to ask or expect the Universe to destroy an economic system I Myself am still dependent on in order to survive or maintain the most basic level of dignity. Only when I refuse to tolerate such ridiculous notions will the Universe know that My intention is sincere and My true will shall be done.
It may sound crazy, but this is My understanding of Our creative power explained as clearly as I know how. Because despite My intention and My good nature, I still want money and abundance on some level, even if not consciously. To be dependent on something is to will it, to create it, to perpetuate that which I seek to destroy and I am nothing more than a hypocrite with an ideology if I don’t actually do something about it. And so My intention becomes a living example.
So how does one prepare for such a journey? By knowing it is about the journey and not the destination, by listening to the Universe, despite what the ‘ego’ might want, or think it wants… Again, in a way this is a hypocritical thing to say as the idea of escaping Our ego is futile, We will always perceive Ourselves as something, and so (for Me), being spiritual means to listen to My intuition, to the Universe, despite whatever arguments My ego might invent, to remember that I am a superhero, that I will overcome anything.
In My next post, I will explain how the Universe ‘speaks’ to Me, what the signs were that let Me know it was time to leave, how I know the difference between what I call ‘ego’ and spirit. For now, I will only say that I knew it was time and that I had two months to prepare, that June 1st would be the first day of a new adventure. I had no idea where I would go, I only knew I was leaving. Since then, I have come up with several possibilities, a bike trek from Ontario to BC, then from BC along the sunshine coast trial to Mexico and from Mexico into the heart of South America… And whatever detours I may make along the way.
How did I prepare for this? I didn’t. Not really. I just made a choice. I spoke the Words. I made a commitment to leave and made no plans to stay anywhere else – the rest takes care of itself. Even with My minimalist attitude and lifestyle, I couldn’t believe how much stuff I had managed to accumulate. And I had no idea what I was going to do with most of it, it was clear it wouldn’t be coming with Me. The days passed and somehow ideas would come to Me – clothes and bedding could be donated, the new tenant had no silverware, plates or other basic necessities, so virtually everything I did have was useful to the next tenant. Today I managed to find homes for virtually every other useful item I had left and the rest of My possessions now fit within and 22×37″ rectangular cart, 18″ high. It’s enough for a miniature cat house, a quality pillow, a goose down duvet, a tent, a box of art supplies, a portfolio for artworks, a 65Liter (wisely packed) backpack and a food and water dish for Kira.
I am couch-surfing for the first time in My life at a friends until My birthday on the 5th when I will have a final blow-out celebration with My friends before hitting the trans-Canada trail Saturday morning to start My trek and adventures across Canada, and if all goes well eventually down into South America. The only thing that will stop Me is complete economic collapse of the U.S. dollar and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if that is not evident long before I reach BC. I will be updating My adventures from internet cafe’s like this one along the way. Today I give thanks to special friends who enjoy reading blog posts from anonymous authors, dark-roast coffee and the beauty of Wi-Fi technology allowing the ability to share these experiences with You. Thanks for being here. Peace and Love.
