Idiots in the House

August 5, 2014

Be the change you wish to have in your life

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  Did Ghandi really say that?  Google says it is so.  So it must be right, right?

But what does this mean?

Lately, peace is on my mind as I see conflict erupt all over the place from the macro to the micro.  All this conflict seems to be born in people’s thoughts, fears, feelings of insecurity, emotional reactivity, inner confusion and incessant mental noise as well as a desire to dominate others.  These are the “idiots in the house” as St Teresa de Avila  said many years ago.

Thoughts and imaginations are like idiots in the house.

Peace is easy.  All we have to do is let the idiots leave our house.  After all, you can’t control idiots. So open the doors, let the idiots leave!   That is, peace is already alive inside of us.  We just have to let go of all the idiots and allow peace to take center stage in our lives.  And not only peace but also serenity and joy.  Just sit for five minutes at a time, relax, breathe deep and invite peace to take center stage in your life.  You will be amazed at what will happen next.

But if the idiots have taken firm control of your house, don’t worry, there is help.  Music, yes music, can help you regain control of your house.  Just listen to Beethoven’s Symphony #7, second movement.  It will put your mind into the proper frequency to let go of the idiots and allow healing to happen.  Just Google it, there are several renditions on U Tube and other places that you can listen to.

Remember John Lennon?  He and Ghandi viewed the world in similar ways.  Look at their glasses!  Ha, they may have even used the same oculist!

Give Peace a Chance
Give Peace a Chance

“Imagine”

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
