The Handling of Chaos: Motion Through Stillness
Commentary by TLB Staff Author: Lucille Femine
The planet being in terrible turmoil and confusion, what do most people do – myself included, though I strive to overcome it? We accept it while we insist: We will not accept it!
In other words, we resist and that is the road to the acceptance of misery, confusion and unhappiness. How can that be if we resist it? Well, our all too frequent reaction is really emotion of various kinds – anger, fear, hopelessness, grief, etc, exactly what the chaos is designed to create.
What happens then? We feed the chaos with all these emotions and it grows – like raising a child with hate and they become hateful. And the perpetrators of the chaos smile and think they have won. They think they have overcome their own deep-seated and shallow fear and hate has been overcome by holding the “enemy” at bay or destroyed. Now THAT’S a miserable life. Much worse than yours.
We engage in all kinds of activity to beat these evil forces – from reading and commenting with protests, opinions, letters to political leaders, writing articles as I do, etc. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these things and much needed.
But where should these activities come from? That is my gist and I will try to explain it to myself as I write to you. You see, that is part of the plan. The less we think, the more we know, even when putting and trying to put cohesive words on paper and cyberspace. It appears to be very analytical. But truly I had no idea what words and concepts I would write until I began to write them. And I refrain as much as possible from “thinking them up” before I type.
This practice of reducing thoughts to a bare minimum (needed to wash dishes, go shopping and all that) should never be considered a “blank mind” in the traditional sense of the word – like stupid. That label has been administered by schools and families who stress that we need to accumulate “facts” as the estimation and growth of intelligence and ability to function.
Surely data is needed to get along in our day to day lives. But what comes first? Silence and stillness. In other words, lose your mind with all its pictures, words, worries, pains, conflicts, all from the past. What remains? The powerful essence of you in the present moment. We call it many things – God, the Supreme Being, the spirit, etc. All it is, really, is you in the moment, this moment as you read this.
What do we do in this state of mind – or no mind? We simply know and experience not only our true self but our environment, our world.
What does this mean in terms of the chaos and danger around us? We simply stay in the present moment as we read, study and experience this chaos and not allow ourselves to “be” the chaos, to succumb to it as though it is real or even inevitable. By agreeing to it all, we recreate in our minds and then in our lives and then in our environment and it becomes real.
This does not mean avoiding it. Quite the opposite. It means viewing it as it is and from there, you, from a wellspring of awareness, will know what to do. And what you do reflects in others around you. This can be a very simple action. The next time someone speaks to you about their fears and anxieties over the world situations, if you just listen with full attentiveness in your new state and not mirror their emotions, you might be amazed what happens. They will be relieved and go away less anxious and may find a similar solution to yours.
You don’t need to preach to anyone. You just need to be.
For me, it’s very pleasing to see the daily growth of spirituality on the whole planet. People always know innately that, in times of danger, we return to ourselves, the only safe harbor. More and more of us know physical confrontation is of no use and will perpetuate the violence.
The virus is not in the body. It’s in the mind. It grows and grows unless we all shift gears and operate from the stillness within. From there, motion creates life in all its goodness, love and prosperity.
God bless America. God bless you.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
