DON’T YOU CARE?

Desert Spirit



Thank You for this day, Mother Father Creator, and for this time and place within time and space where I as spirit have asked to be, to unlearn the ways of the body and ego-thought system, and remember the truth of what I am as God created my spirit and mind.

If I asked to be placed within this plane, within this vibration of the Greater Mind, then I will to aspire to the reasons FOR my presence here. And so I ask You Who have Given me this path by which I live and demonstrate, what will You have me do this day, where will You have me go, what will You have me say, and to whom? Decide for me for my time in this vibration.

 

Today You extend to me,

 

 

The teachers of God have trust in the world, because they have learned it is not governed by the laws the world made up.”

 

 

Now, is this study a study of the mind and its subservience to its thoughts and perceptions, the rules and laws the mind has made within itself that I think I must serve? Is the world actually my mind, and the contents of its thoughts, all the horror I see as well as all the beauty?

 

Early in my study, many years ago, I came to discover that ‘the world’ was not something or some place external to me, IF this is a study of the mind and its thinking and its perceptions. But actually ‘the world’ is my mind and the experiences I have are those I perceive as a physical existence.

 

And so ‘the world’ was replaced with ‘the mind’ or more specifically ‘my mind,’ Then it would read,

 

The teachers of God have trust in their mind, because they have learned it is not governed by the laws the mind made up. The teachers of God confide in their mind, have confidence within their mind because they discovered or learned or experienced that the mind, their mind, is not governed by the laws the mind has made up.”

 

Wow. This consideration is in direct opposition to what I think and how I live, to what all who dwell in this vibration think and live. Not only do I think I am governed by the laws ‘the world’ has made up, I am also convinced I am governed by the laws my mind has made up.

 

And so this would introduce me to those things in my mind that govern me, that to which I THINK I must submit, or ‘accept’ with which I am not in agreement. In this, a change in mind becomes a change in my thinking and thus my perceptions about those things I experience, thereby changing the experiences I have IN ‘the world.’

 

Now You say, “Seek not outside yourself, for you will fail and you will weep each time an idol falls”. In this regard if You offer me that,‘the world is not governed by the laws it made up,’ I would not seek to understand the laws the world has made because that is a seeking outside myself. Then, if I seek to try to change what is outside myself, by being active in causes and all the commotion of the outside world, I am violating Your Teachings, because I am seeking outside myself in my attempts to change WHAT I THINK IS OUTSIDE MYSELF.

 

And so the world must be not only IN my mind but IS my mind.

 

Then, my perceptions are what I experience AS a world outside myself, an effect of all my thinking.

 

It must follow then that what I SEE outside myself, what I EXPERIENCE outside myself is THAT WHICH I AM THE CAUSE OF. And the deception is that I attempt to CHANGE what I MAKE OUTSIDE MYSELF by attempting to change the world, but not change my thinking about the world I make outside myself.

 

Now each being must have within him or herself ‘the world’ they perceive and experience.  So those who live in a conviction that the world IS outside themselves, and they are IN a world OUTSIDE themselves, are OUT OF THE MIND, or OUT OF THEIR MINDS, in a world they think is outside their mind.

 

And so what is outside them they try to change. But they fail to see the world they are trying to change IS one THEY made. And in their thinking they think IT IS outside them. And so this can only mean THEY ARE GOVERNED BY WHAT THEY THINK IS OUTSIDE THEMSELVES. But they do not see THIS IS HOW THEY THINK. If they did, would then not tell me about it? Instead, they either say nothing, or defined their thinking otherwise.

 

The thinking of being governed by an outside world IS INSIDE THEIR THINKING.

 

How foolish then it would be to try to change a world by which they think they are governed, and do nothing about their thinking this way.

 

We who are convinced of an outside world, manifested BY OUR THOUGHTS, do not see the utter waste of time involved in trying to change the world that is not outside oneself but inside oneself.

 

Who will see a changed world if they do not change the world within themselves?

 

And so in this lesson it is stated that the inner world, the mind, IS NOT governed by laws the mind has made.

 

Is this a truth for me? IS THIS A TRUTH BY WHICH I LIVE? And why do You offer it TO me if I plan to not live BY this Law?

 

Am I convinced of the ‘laws’ my mind has made by which I think I must abide?

 

I do not want to do anything about the laws my mind has made by which I think I must live. In doing so I manifest a world I experience.

 

Since I do not like what I see ABOUT the world I experience, I attempt to seek OUTSIDE MYSELF to change what I perceive about a world outside myself. Is it not easier just to see a world outside myself I think I must change, rather than end this external pursuit and do something about the world in my mind I REFUSE TO CHANGE?

 

And so I stand for causes regarding all the ‘injustices’ of the world outside myself and justify all my actions are noble and right and necessary and important in my self-righteous attempts to change THE WORLD THAT I PERCEIVE IS OUTSIDE MYSELF. And I do NOTHING about the world INSIDE myself that manifest a world outside myself.

 

I am the fool who thinks I will change when I change the world outside myself with which I am not satisfied, a world You say is not governed BY the laws it made up. If the world is not governed BY the laws it made up, how idiotic it must be for me to try and change them!

 

How can I study my inside world? I am far too busy involved in what is outside myself. I simply do not have the time to do anything about myself, but have much time to involve myself with the world outside me.

 

Now this day these are observations I make about what I perceive about those who have been brought INTO the world I experience, those who have been brought into the vibration of my thinking and my thoughts. And as I have seen the slavery we succumb to in our thoughts, I attempt to offer what has been my experiences with regard to a perceived world outside myself.

 

If You, Teacher, offer me a course in unlearning of all I have learned, and if You offer me the task of seeking NOT outside myself, then ANY CHANGE IN a perceived external world will only come from those changes that I invite You to make in my thinking.

 

If the world is not governed by laws it has made, and I think I am part OF that world, then I see now it is an utter waste of time to attempt to change what is not governed by the world or by we who think we are part of the world.

 

Mother earth makes inner changes within herself to accommodate for the changes the self-destructive humans have imposed on it. Mother earth does not attempt to change humans. She makes the adjustments within herself and humans suffer the consequences of these changes.

 

Animals make inner changes within themselves to accommodate for the changes the self-destructive humans have imposed on them. Animals do not attempt to change humans. They make the adjustments within themselves, and humans suffer the consequences of these changes.

 

And so I seek the world INSIDE myself that governs me. I seek the laws in my thinking to which I think I must abide. And if You are the Governor of my mind, of all minds, then I come in this holy instant of communication with You to serve under Your Governorship, and uphold the post You assign to me, that within my thinking I may come to true humility, true honesty, true integrity as the spirit I am.

 

Then I will offer Fact and not the noise of the opinionated mind.

 

Now I will to bring this demonstration to all minds that continue to think they are governed by the world or their thinking, who think they are within an external world, governed by external laws that is an effect of their own inner lawlessness.

 

Be it so now.

“It is done.”

 

Now this day I have awakened with a sweet melody from long ago. I have inserted parenthesis to suggest this word can be changed by the receiver for his or her individual experience –

 

“If you don't love me, then why don't you tell me 
instead of running around with all the other (guys) in town 
can't you see you're hurting me
don't you care, don't you care
 
If you don't want me then why don't you tell me,
instead of telling lies
and making me cry
can't you see you're hurting me 
Don't you care, don't you care?
 
What ever happened to all the good times we used to have
the times we cried and laughed
I want to know, I want to know
will you ever love me again or will I find out that this is the end
don't you care------ mmmmmmm my my my my baby 
 
You said that you'd believe me,
then why'd you ever leave me 
I'm standing here all alone 
without a (girl) of my own,
can't you see you're hurting me
don't you care,  don't you care
 
don't you care
don't you care
don't you care(times x2)
(DON’T YOU CARE? – The Buckingmans)

 

I could easily see this is God singing to me.

 

Don’t you care?
