Life is lived in moments.
Harmony with mildew comes from understanding the way of tension with mildew. Why do you want to kill it? Why do other people kill it? These tensions in the mind have led to all manner of inventions, including finding a way to live in peace with an organism we were previously at odds with. Canines at one time ate us. Felines at one time would have fled us at every turn, but the world spins on threads of tension. Any tension in time balances out into a new peace as a new facet of life reaches maturity. Each fiber has to exist. Each tissue, each cell wall, is vital to health and growth. But the whole is perceived only in the tensions.
Now what does this mean for the individual? You don’t have to consider the whole universe when you are planning to remove mildew from your environment, I promise. But when you are on that threshold of taking action, making any decision, in that moment you resonate with the universal harmony. Your little part is vibrating with all other parts, and you can feel, if just briefly, what the world feels about what you are about to do.
I have destroyed a few animals that were beyond rescue. I felt only their pain and despair in that moment, and peace after. I have refused to do harm to things that other people find vile and frightening, because I could feel that creatures place in the world right then and there, and there was only harmony except for the fearful one insisting I kill it.
Like snakes? People always want to kill them. Indeed.
I’ve noticed I’ve often formed the best alliances with people I was initially at odds with. Harmony along the thread of tension.
So should you kill the mildew? Maybe yes, maybe no. It depends on the relationship of things around that, but there is one simple guideline. You are meant to live. You are meant to exist and be well.
No use if the bathroom itself is better off gutted than cleaned. The mildew can have the rotted old cupboard. Exactly. You understand perfectly.
We create the chaos and confusion we do in our lives because we insist, “We know better.” Knowing comes with harmony. Knowing comes after or during, never before. This is perhaps why they say hindsight is 20/20.
On the subject of foreseeing the future, just in passing before I go. In fact, this is not really possible, not in the literal sense. But someone might appear to be able to foresee the future, because everything that manifests in time as a physical event starts well before the event itself.
If one reads the threads stemming from any given event, they put themselves in momentary resonance with the collective tide of energy that will possibly give rise to what we would consider a future event. Seeing one thing fully, you can for a moment see all things in part, and even seeing that partial picture of the whole can be enough to grant us insight into making wiser choices regarding our actions in this ocean of reality. What do you think friends?
I get visions of the future, and I don’t like it when they happen. Well, again, they stem from threads of tension. This is why these events always seem so dramatic. But like a spider in a web, just a little tweak on the one thread you feel the disturbance in, just a small action on that thing you do actually have access to, and entire events can change.
I hope I offered something of value to you, but if not then perhaps that is the nature of seeking and next time will reveal something new.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
