ENIGMA LYRICS

Return To Innocence




That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence
Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion
Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion
Don't be afraid to be weak
Don't be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence
If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny
Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence
That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence
Don't care what people say
Follow just your own way Follow just your own way
Don't give up, don't give up
To return, to return to innocence.
If you want then laugh
If you must then cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny.

Deepak Chopra - May 12, 2008 wrote:



I have no patience for theories of universal evil -- that is, attributing evil to Satan, the fall of man, genes, human nature, or unnamed dark forces lurking in our unconscious. In one way or another, these theories have increased the effects of evil rather than alleviating them. In addition, they are false, or at the very least unprovable. Evil may be powerful, but nobody has ever photographed the devil or caught the unconscious on an MRI. On the other hand, there's enormous validity in viewing evil as something very different: a matter of perception. We all know this from everyday life. We forgive our children for things that we condemn harshly in another person's child. Our perception is colored by love and loyalty on one hand but not the other.

Is this unfair, a form of favoritism that's morally unjust? It can be, of course. But the underlying principle doesn't change: evil is hugely affected by perception. The most evil person you can conjure up in your mind, whether it's a Nazi, Muslim extremist, pedophile, or murderer, probably is loved by someone (mother, wife, girlfriend, priest), and thus is perceived very differently. Perception isn't passive. Far from it -- children perceived as good, lovable, worthy, and strong by their parents turn out well in life compared to children perceived as bad, weak, stupid, and unworthy. Each of us has metabolized past perceptions and turned them into the self we are today. We assign meaning to every experience along a scale from very good to very bad.

The argument for pure or absolute evil runs afoul of this fact. No matter how evil something is, if you don't perceive it as applying to you, it doesn't become part of you. The most heinous social movements (anti-Semitism, racism, religious bigotry, xenophobia) infect many, but there are always some people who are immune. This leaves room for the evolution of perception. Instead of fighting absolute evil, the people who produce real change go beyond rigid condemnation and fear. If their immunity is strong enough, they can look evil in the face. What do they find? Something that can be cured, or at least understood and alleviated.

One of the most productive ways to cure evil is to break it down into its components. Evil, more often than not, is situational. Conditions inside the situation have some or all of the following qualities:
--Rigid belief systems
--Approval of harsh punishment
--Clinging to authority
--Guilt and shame
--Freedom to unleash violence
--Numbing of personal conscience
--Chronic exposure to immoral behavior
--Peer pressure
--Hatred of "the other"
--Childhood abuse
--Political repression

Until these ordinary factors are solved, it's pointless to brand evil as inevitable and incurable. It takes all of these elements in concert to produce concentration camps and torture at Abu Ghraib. It takes only a few to produce a dysfunctional family. As astute psychologists point out, evil doesn't result from a few bad apples in the barrel; it results when good apples are put into a bad barrel. That is, all of us would turn to evil if the environment became poisonous enough. (It may seem unbelievable that you would torture prisoners at Abu Ghraib, but would you steal bread from your neighbor if your children were starving and everyone else was stealing?) Absolute evil is a far more improbable explanation for why people do bad things. Resorting to Satan or demonic possession is a retreat from reason and an easy escape.

The current scientific fad for explaining evil is through genetic defects and distorted brain chemistry. On the one hand this medical model takes us away from the religious model with all its medieval assumptions. That's to the good, but on the other hand, bad genes are nearly as immutable as satanic forces, and more to the point, they absolve us too easily. Child abuse, the worship of authority, and rigid belief systems can be dealt with, and should be. Using genes to justify life sentences for repeat offenders isn't that far-fetched -- we may be there already. Punishment doesn't solve the problem of evil because it promotes guilt and shame. As long as society can't be made to see this truth, prisons will remain the breeding ground for evil rather than the solution.

Each of us can fight evil by shifting our perceptions; this is not only the best way to cure evil but the fastest. Take any current evil that tempts you to be vindictive and judgmental. With as much objectivity as you can, match that evil against the list of influences listed above. There is no evidence of a Hitler, Stalin, chronic pedophile, or criminal deviant like Jeffrey Dahmer, whose life wasn't deeply scarred by them. Don't try to forgive the unforgivable. Your aim isn't to be saintly but simply to understand, and with understanding, to break down the massive problem of evil into smaller components that can be solved. You might discover that you personally can make a contribution. Abused children can be helped and loved. A church congregation hijacked by intolerance can be filled with new members who feel otherwise. Guilt and shame that you feel in yourself can be healed with therapy.

What if this whole approach feels too wishy-washy and Pollyanna? Then consider this. We have just passed through an era where absolute evil was condemned, enemies were assaulted head on, fear was engendered, and differences accentuated. How good do you feel about that, and more importantly, how effective was the solution? Having lived through a period when our leaders proudly advertised their allegiance to theories of absolute evil, we owe it to ourselves to try something else. The best alternative is to reframe your perception of evil, which will allow a new reality to emerge.

I'll second that, Tom, thanks Siri!  And those pictures of the tiger and the pig are just beautiful, they almost made me cry.

SuperManny

In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only orphans' that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops?

I agree that most positive action we can take is to hold on to the perception that the idea of evil doesn't have to apply to us. We need to rise over it's seductive nature. It's pointless to use it as a survival tool, or as a means to destroy "worse" evil, because as eternal beings the energetic imbalances always follow us and draw us back into the same fray, over and over again...as has happened. We are what we do.

Somewhere in our multidimensional circuitry we once were and still are innocent, and there is always at least the thread of a connection to Oneness. We all return, because no one has ever completely left.

Which IS(IS) the Focus Of This Thread.

Myriad Other Threads And Sources Deal With OUR Current Great Work of BURNING >the parafuckingsitic factor< from existence,

The Reunification And Synergization >>>>>>> And Return Of Awareness To OUR Natural Empathic And Symbiotic Relationship To A Greater Whole.

August: This final month will be when you take the outer and inner, which have begun to switch places in your focus...and bring things more into manifested form. Now is when you find the proof in the pudding, so to speak. As you act more and more from the emerging truth that is rising from within, you will begin to experience more instantaneous manifestation of your commitments.
You will begin to see how clearly you are manifesting. It will become a greater conscious awareness. You will begin to see how every moment is a reflection of your personal co-creation. This is where you will begin to experience the fact that the only relationship you are really having is the one you having with yourself. Everything outside of yourself is merely mirroring and reflecting that relationship back to yourself.
You will see how life reflects where you are in acceptance and where you are in resistance more clearly than ever. There may be more extremes that manifest as a result. There will be more manifested outcomes.
You will likely have a lot of inner "I knew this or that." Your intuitive nature will become more readily available and you will be able to trust it more fully as you bring your focus here consciously.
Your relationship to the one soul of humanity will allow you to become more communal and compassionate, less separate or superior. This will allow you to experience more emotionally what the whole or collective is going through.
There will be more connections that you have not thought previously that you would be likely to connect with, as you move more and more out of separation. You will then know each other more and more from the inside. You will feel like you are able to know each other more easily and readily, sometimes at a glance.
You will be aware of more vastness of creation as you open to know and connect. You will know more about what is going on in the groups that are on a similar level. This will bring soul groups together more easily, far beyond what you have known previously. It will be a communication realization.
It is a combination of telepathy, clairvoyance and clairsentience. This is the beginning of what you will perceive and experience on a soul level, as you transform the personality to surrender to the sacredness of your own souls.
It will feel very exposing to begin for many. This may be a bit scary. You will likely fluctuate from being less defensive, and then more guarded as you get used to being this much more open and connected.

You will become more aware of the fact that what you actually need is tied to what the group or community needs. This may be unsettling or alarming to begin as well. You have been so used to seeming separate. You will not lose your individuality on any level. You will merely connect to a more expansive realization of what you have always been made up of and have the potential for. There will therefore be less and less grasping for things outside yourself.
You will merely realize that manifestation is merely a part of your connection to the Divine Order of things, where everything is connected. You will move more into the experience of WE, than trapped into the separation and self-involvement of 'me.'

Oneness May Newsletter - Rasha wrote:

Are you ready to go deeper now?

For this issue of “Oneness Speaks??? let me take you with me into the experience of Oneness. Here, we begin with a transcription of my own words, documenting what I was actually experiencing, together with the understandings that were spontaneously springing forth within me as I transitioned, yet again, into Divine connectedness one day last year. These kinds of experiences helped to solidify the groundwork for “A Journey to Oneness???, the book that documents my own spiritual journey, interwoven with the Divine wisdom I received from Oneness all along the way ...soon to be published.

On this particular occasion, my revelations led to a fascinating discourse by Oneness on the subject of “free will.??? I feel this is perhaps the most powerful passage ever given to us by Oneness ...one that says it all. It is a passage that gives us the answer to “how it works???...in a nutshell! In this transcription, Oneness reveals the true “Secret.??? The key to everything. It is my joy and privilege to share it with you now.

With Love & Light,

Rasha




May 2008

Rasha’s revelations:

I've been sitting here reviewing the transcriptions and writings that were documented over the last few years, and I came across a paragraph written in September 2006:

“I feel the Presence of Oneness now so completely. Yet it never ceases to amaze me that this continues to be so. I feel the Presence of Rasha receding into the periphery of this awareness now. And the Presence I experience as presiding in this form is most definitely that of Oneness. Oneness is diligently documenting these words, as though they were being channeled. They are the sentiments of Rasha, now seemingly coming from somewhere far distant from here.???

Suddenly I stopped dead in my tracks. Who is it that “feels the Presence of Oneness??? in this way? And who is it who “feels the presence of Rasha receding into the periphery of this awareness???? Clearly the one who is feeling these things is neither Oneness nor Rasha, but something else altogether! The medium for perception ...what has been termed the “consciousness??? ...is the only possibility. It is the hardware, deluding itself into thinking that it is whatever program happens to be playing at the time. And it is the software that makes that perception possible. When all the while, the impression ...the assumption ...has always been that who I am is the data itself! I believed that who I “am??? is whatever happens to be expressing itself through this body/mind mechanism. It is as though the CD player believes itself to be the song!

I know that I have danced with these concepts for years and have written bits and pieces of these Revelations many times before. Perhaps I have even had this level of impactful “Realization??? before! And, somehow I simply don’t remember it. So, the “default setting??? of the Rasha identity re-sets itself. And this medium for self-perception gets to wake up one more time, despite the fact that it has already had the experience of Self-Realization umpteen times before. What a bizarre movie this has turned out to be.

I see that I am able to flip between the channels at will now. I can “tune in??? the perceptions of Oneness virtually at will. Ah! Now there’s a concept. “At will.??? What will? Does this consciousness have “a will???? It seems to have the ability to direct the focus of the awareness of this vehicle ...on any of a number of levels of self-perception. And all of it ...individually and collectively ...could be none other than Oneness. When I shift the awareness of this vehicle to that place of Self-perception, the wonderful inner glow that marks the Presence of Oneness clicks into place instantly. And the medium for perception gets to feel ...to experience ...myself from the perspective of Oneness.

I see that it is an infinite menu of possibility. It is all a matter of what I choose to perceive! At this point, I seem to have refined the ability to do that. I can choose the perspective of Oneness. It is that simple. Or I can choose any of an infinite number of variations on the theme of limitation ...and perceive that to be what “is.??? Now, in this instant, I seem to be tuning in the perceptions of Oneness, and, once again, these perceptions are being documented automatically through the medium of this vehicle. I begin to see what is going on.

Oh my! I do see it! Who I Am never changes. What changes is the experience of it. And I can modulate that experience by directing the focus of my awareness and perfecting my skill in holding it steady ...unwaveringly ...upon the setting calibrated to tune-in the perceptions of Oneness!

Once we have done all the work ...once we have released all the emotional baggage, once we have refined our understandings and released the beliefs that would tether the possibility of perception to a particular mode of experience ...the mechanism is liberated! It is free of the filters that color the experience. It is in a mode of consummate receptivity ...a position that is devoid of bias.

It is like a car that is cruising along in “neutral???; propelled by the momentum of the moment; fully surrendered to embodying the Nowness of this particular instant of physicality. It is free to respond to the direction of the focus of awareness that is driving it. And the focus is locked-in on the vantage point of Oneness. It is now no longer under the influence of the vibrational constraints that characteristically lock the “setting??? into the perception of particular levels of limitation. It is Oneness experiencing itself as Oneness! I see it. It is so very clear!

So who is it who “gets it??? in this moment? No one gets it! The perception of “getting it??? registers as experience within the context of the body-mind mechanism that Is and shall ever Be the medium of ...Oneness.

So, ok Oneness. I know that there are infinite levels of perception within the range that could be termed “Oneness.??? Let us venture forth within that mode in this moment. Let us speak about “free will.??? Is that a capacity that is part of the program of this medium for perception that is being referred to here as “consciousness????

Oneness Speaks:

Let us take this moment and deepen this connection. Let us shift into the mode of consummate receptivity that characterizes this connection. For, despite the expressed understandings that it is indeed, all Oneness, there are vast ranges of possibility within the context of that category of Self perception.

The Presence that you have come to term “Oneness??? is a calibration far removed from the level in which that same Divine Essence is perceived in the course of daily life, at this juncture. Ultimately, the perception of Self will be that of the heightened level of Presence you have come to experience as “Oneness??? during these sessions.

Oneness speaks about “free will.???

The “free will??? to which you refer is the capacity that is subject to the inclinations of the “soul.??? This is the first time in these writings that we have used this word. The soul is Oneness ...with identity. The free will that is expressed is inherent within the context of physicality, in which Oneness has chosen to experience our Self.

The characteristics you would consider to be “you??? ...that which differentiates you from what you would consider to be “others??? is the sum-totality of the coloration carried forth from lifetime to lifetime, and is perceived as experience. All of it is no more and no less than energy.

The soul is who you Are. It is Oneness ...experienced as “you.??? It is Oneness, veiled by the intricate layers of density carried forth from lifetime to lifetime. It is Oneness, colored by layers of vibration that can be perceived as difference. It is Divine Unity ...sameness wearing the trappings of distinction ...energy that can be perceived only within the context of the world of duality. Free will is the inevitability of action within the sum-totality of that vibrational equation.

It could be said that there is, in actuality, no such thing as “free will.??? Action is simply the manifestation of energy through the medium of physicality. What can be affected is only the natural alignment of the focus of the attention of the mechanism of consciousness. When that focus of attention is directed upon the highest possible level of self-perception in any given moment, the vibrational configuration that determines experience is re-calibrated, and a different “choice??? is perceived as having been enacted.

Within the range of all possibilities at any given crossroads, all that can be altered is the vibrational level that translates as experience in a given moment. That vibrational calibration is perceived within the context of experience. As such, it could be said, technically, that there is no such thing as “free will.??? And yet, the consummate force driving the entire process toward Divine Unity has the option, in any given instant, to recognize itself, and to direct itself toward alignment with its own Essence. And so, the perception of choice is experienced.

Yet, in actuality, all that truly has occurred is the alignment of the body/mind mechanism either with Divinity or with separation. That is the only choice possible. All else plays out accordingly as experience, commensurate with the vibrational variables carried within the context of the vehicle for perception ...the body/mind mechanism one perceives as oneself.

And so, one inches through the labyrinth of physicality, coming closer and closer to the experience of Self-perception as the Oneness that one in fact Is ...having peeled back yet another veil of density that would color the perception of self as characterized by separation from that very Divine Essence. The alignment of the focus of attention upon one’s own innate Divinity ...or upon separation from it ...is the only choice possible. This is the basis of what has come to be termed “free will??? ...and is experienced accordingly.

Thus, in every moment, at every crossroads of possibility, the question at hand is actually not “what do I wish to do??? but rather ...Who Am I? What is the nature of my essence? Where do I align myself? Is it toward the truth of my Essence? Or is it away from it? Is my Essence that of Oneness? Or is it within the context of separation from Oneness? This is the exercise of “free will??? that is enacted with every waking breath. Ultimately, the layers of density are peeled back in this way and one’s True Essence shines forth as the only possibility. Unwavering. The highest outcome to the scenarios that are perceived within the world of form, as experience, manifest accordingly.
