Tonight I was on the phone to a friend from long ago and as we spoke a great many heartaches were remembered. As we concluded she thanked me for helping take her away from her woes at which time I said to her that it was time to play the game of life differently to what we have been playing. As usual the synchronicity of life came to remind me of the interconnectedness of life in the first email that I opened as I finished speaking to her on the phone. I would like to share this email here as I will also send her a copy. I hope she passes a giggle or at least a smile, at the thought of the content.
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE
I pledge allegiance to breaking the self-imposed barriers of my
humanness. I recognize that my time on this planet is precious
and limited. Every day is a canvas on which I can create.
Everyday is an opportunity for me to move i the direction of
the dreams and the expanded vision I feel inside. By setting
aside petty grievances, past mistakes, righteous anger and my
broken story, I pledge to move forward and embrace the
experience of freedom right here and right now.
I pledge allegiance to the expression of my spiritual honesty.
I fully own the fact that my presence here in this body and on
this earth is a celebration of uniqueness and importance.
Creation makes no mistakes. I am a creation of life, of a
higher power, of perfection. My reason for being here matters
in the grand divine plan. I must be honest with my contract of
life and walk the path of my destiny with conviction, purpose
I pledge allegiance to the quiet soldier within. I understand
that the championing spirit that is already cellularly alive
inside of me, that was already in place at the time of my birth,
waits patiently for my current belief about myself to join it in
its knowing. I march forward towards a history of my own
making, wisely, lovingly choosing the means by which I
spread my beliefs and convictions. I never make others
wrong for their chosen path for I recognize the innumerable
roads that lead to the One.
I pledge allegiance to a partnership with divinity. I choose
to see others and myself from eyes that already view the
wholeness and perfection within. I do not entertain our
past damage or encourage us to identify with it for I trust
that a grander calling card has been printed for us to
distribute in promoting our lives. I champion all of us to
celebrate what is working rather than what isn't.
I pledge allegiance to wise discernment - knowing when
to speak and when to remain quiet, knowing when to
comfort and when to leave alone, knowing when to
intervene and when to avoid rescuing and interfering.
I pledge allegiance to people and projects of substance.
I cannot travel this road alone. If there is anything we as a
species need, it is each other. I actively choose to support
those whose work I believe in with my time, talent and
treasure. I joyously give to those whose intention and
purpose is for self-empowerment and the awakening of
humanity to its personal magnificence. I rally to make
others aware of such light bearers and do what I can to
support them in furthering their vision.
I pledge allegiance to the freedom from comparison. I
once and for all lay down my wearisome, stale beliefs
of unworthiness and not being good enough. I know
that my past does not define who I am. I am forever
evolving, growing and learning. I recognize that I am a
marvel. I now choose opportunities to let my voice be
heard; to let my light shatter the darkness of futility so
that every personal dream is explored.
I pledge allegiance in knowing that things are not always
as they seem. Just because something can't be seen with
the physical eye or rationalized by our current mode of
understanding does not negate its existence.
Understanding the difference between reality and illusion,
I move into a fuller acceptance of the non-physical - the
mystical, intuitive, soul aspect of living that expands my
consciousness and deepens my days.
I pledge allegiance to actions that fulfill the greatest good
for all. By becoming a gatekeeper of compassion,
tolerance and love, I move into a fuller conviction of pure
intent with regard to the words that I speak and the
choices that I make. I pursue a win-win in all activities
I pledge allegiance to those who have gone before me,
the ancestral lineage whose courage, sacrifice and
conviction still live in my bones. I honor the privileges
given to me today because of the sweat from their
pioneering efforts and the fortitude of their convictions.
I give thanks for my responsibility in creating the same
for future generations.
I pledge allegiance to a love that has no agenda. I no
longer choose to give for what I might get, to manipulate
in order to control, to abandon before I can be
abandoned, to tolerate because there are seemingly no
other options. I choose to love as a way of being. I am
content in my choice whether outside circumstances
respond or not. In being love, I create fulfillment above
and beyond what the human condition can provide.
I pledge allegiance to the sacredness of laughter,
knowing that the greatest healing force that exists
reverberates from the vibration of this holy and
irreplaceable gift. I allow humor, joy and eruptions
of laughter to make their home in my heart. I let my
physical body respond to the sacred stimulus and
biological wonder that laughter creates and vow to
keep this attribute alive and thriving all the days of my

I liked that lydia, I liked it a lot. A theme that I'm running across lately is that defensive mechanisms that were necessary for our survival are keeping us from moving forward, and that has now become a dysfunctional issue. We need to break the cycle, that going around in circles is no longer an option, that we either spiral upwards or we spiral downwards. Onwards and upwards seems to be the wise choice, imho.

Good to read. Thanks.

is it really defensive mechanisms or is it in fact self sabotage which stops us from achieving an enlightened state? A state where fear and arrogance have no place.

For my personal identity I'm not sure and I suspect that there may be some truth to the self sabotage; still working that out since I keep running into this dillema in all the literature that to be well adjusted I have to attach to my reality and I can't deny that our reality is one sick puppy. Which has always been a source of resistance for me.
On the collective identity I wouldn't call it self sabotage so much as intentional suppression in a class war.
I agree that fear and arrogance have no place. Do you think I'm arrogant?
7 Jul 2004 @ 04:59 by : arrogance?
I'm not here to make value judgements, although I'd imagine that we all at some time in our lives have suffered from arrogance. You have a right to speak your truth. On the world stage I wouldn't regard it as self sabotage either, it is very much a case of rule by fear and domination so the mass population can be disempowered.
