Cinderella Finds Mr. Goodbar
July 15, 2014
Is the world better off with you in it? Walt Disney’s fairy tale girl seeking her Prince Charming instead finds one Mr. GoodBar after another. Mr. GoodBar was any male in the 1970’s famous movie that the ’70’s girl of NYC yearned for in search of excitement, as well as having a ‘Cinderella dream’ of living the American Dream. Hollywood brings illusion out of ignored reality. Nothing is what it seems to be to those in a dream looking for a dream. Always looking for the light but finding the dark side of life.*
Life is filled with teachers be they people or circumstances, many unfortunate, but always an opportunity to add to a positive awareness for future reference. Mr. Goodbar is on the dark side, while Cinderella is on the light side. Both live in illusions, escaping from reality that brings more meaningful answers, and blessings to life and love. Always be letting your eyes, mind, and heart become alive with the power of discernment. Humans are carriers of hope, wishes, self gratifications, and illusions that evade the wonderments of reality that hide in the light. Life like a roller coaster is a choice that avoids what consciousness can see.
Love is a ladder. At the lower levels, the experiences are wonderful, sometimes, but short lived. Climbing the ladder with another opening their heart in synchronicity, the view and experience creates it’s own ladder where falling is not a possibility. In the story of Alice in Wonderland, there is a saying something like, ‘once you’ve seen it, it will never leave you’. Once love reaches whatever height, it will forever be where it has risen to. Usually, love growth stops and ‘plateau’s a great distance from its potential, and to never grow again, however the possibility is there!
Cinderella lives in illusion looking for what will be an illusion while avoiding looking at what will cause her to fall short into the, less than fashionable, Olive Oil in ‘Popeye the Sailor’ fictional cartoon. Mr. Goodbar? He’s suffering from unconscious illusions stimulated by two or more of the 8 deadly sins. Will they awaken and live in the conscious space of ‘rarified air? At best, all but the rare one, will do a series of superficial makeovers avoiding an ‘extreme makeover’ out of ignorance and fear. People usually make friends with their liabilities and bad habits rationalizing endlessly for their justification.
Snow White, Cinderella, Prince Charming, Mr. Money bags are all celluloid fictional movies! Give yourself a few slaps in the morning mirror until you see that the tools to rise to the high space of the conscious realms are there waiting. Real love is a permanent space to fly from there! Real love is real freedom!
