Anarchy or Chaos?

May 15th, 2013
Humankind discusses chaos as we go through these light-shifts of awareness.
Yes, chaos precedes change.  In fact, without some chaos, we could not create.  In Asian mythology, much of the dragon symbolism is tied to both destruction and creation, for it is out of destruction (perhaps the cutting down of  a tree) that creation (perhaps the building of a boat) can take place.
We will leave the quantum physics of it for a bit later; for a better lexicon.

On a more fundamental level of self, of course, we cannot create a new paradigm for ourselves without the breaking apart of the old paradigm bonds which held us at our prior level of conditioning/thinking.  Life* is about evolution, after all, and if we are not participating in life and its learning process, we are doing less than living.  That doesn’t mean it is easy for us, but it is appropriate if we wish to have our Hero journeys.

I think that since the time Doug was diagnosed, I have witnessed so many old paradigms being smashed into little bits and being replaced with new, crystalline clarity of expanded paradigms, at least for me,  at such a fundamental level of awareness, that I can even name some of them:

Concepts arising from fundamental awareness are Universal in nature.

Awareness, or consciousness, is eternal.
Families are more of spirit than blood.  Doug and I called ours Tribe, or Spirit Family. (Same here at this fire, of course.)
Love can transcend all limitations.  Really. 😉
I am far less limited than I admit.  But there is comfort in the familiar boundaries I created, so I look for positive incentives to change.  Jumping out or ruts, we called it.
There are unlimited positive incentives for change.  Love, laughter and abiding appreciation of beauty  and magnificence are among them.
I can change my boundaries, beliefs, and actions with intentional consciousness, as we called it.
I am no longer sure we have any limits.
I am worthy of far more love than I heretofore knew existed. 😉
In many situations where one might consider death the only option, there remain other options, perhaps an unlimited number of options. 😉
There are bigger Plans and more beautiful Paths than I can at present comprehend.;)

Yes, as people abandon war, and abandon initiating violence, we will begin to see less chaos.  Is not war chaos?

(I have written a lot about this hour being the time to quit using clubs and all their humankind manifestations.
Through cooperative, voluntary, peaceful, Agorist Anarchy, we can begin to learn cooperative peace.   Not coercive peace, which is what governments pretend to impose with their warfare, but cooperative peace that does not need any politicians of self-styled “leaders”  for humans to be in accord.

I am wonderfully blessed to be a part of the international Agora and Peace communities.  I am often asked to speak or write of alternatives for humankind that are based on voluntary cooperation, free markets* (a comment on this in a moment), non-coercive social structures, and peaceful ways to live.

*Someone commented negatively on a ticket (to hear the Dali Lama) that someone had “scalped” to someone.  Why is this bad?  There was no coercion or fraud: two individuals voluntarily agreed to an exchange of value. Perhaps the seller needed the money to pay for, say, vet fees for a beloved pet.  Perhaps the buyer came into funds to go at the last minute and was happy to pay the asking price.  This was a peaceful, voluntary exchange between two people.  Let them be.  Who are we to make a judgement on this?  We would all like to see the heart-warming act of someone giving someone a ticket out of love, but there may be reasons of love behind the actions of these people of which we know nothing.  To condemn such a transaction because our government-saturated culture condemns free markets and free exchanges does not make this action in any way unethical: no force or fraud was used, and that is the test for ethical human actions, is it not?

The veil of government protection is pervasive in this societal structure, and it is a silly drama without basis among those with an understanding of human nature.

For you see, humans do not elect morally superior people: they elect financially and photogenically superior people, if “superior” is the right words to use.
Humankind now begins to learn the fundamental difference between chaos and anarchy, which is self-governance, after all. Government preaches fear of chaos.  Chaos and anarchy are not at all the same social structure. 
True leaders arise naturally among people (once they are not indoctrinated by mass media conditioning) and are leaders because they LIVE the good and ACT from the good.  Thus they are leaders.   And some who posture as leaders for a government based on coercion, force, and fraud, will be shunned.  Cast out.  Peace will prevail, so come join us on this side of the chasm.
There are mighty dragons shifting the scenery of this drama on Mother Earth, and all around us, there is chaos.  
If we will stand in our own center of peace and ethical action, we can serve as light-bringers for others around us.  And that is the most remarkable and wonderful change that I see growing out of the chaos.
*remember, when I said, a long time ago, that Life is Awareness making Love with Existence.
 Aren’t we the Awareness?  What are You, God, Creating as you Make Love with the Infinite IS?
