Super-Powered by Love
“Super-Powered by Love”
Flames of Love are in the heart of all men and women, boys and girls, puppies and goldfish. Following this line of reason, name the rest – for no matter how ferocious you’ve seen a gorilla behave, watch it change when it’s with its mate or offspring – the whole nature of the unseen forces of the Earth and maybe beyond, are intrinsically woven together in a myriad tapestry of the emotions that come forth and the reasoning that goes within to allow the force of Love to surface and then Triumph.
It’s a laborious journey for Love – not because of its own inherent Super-Powers, but rather by the obstructions put in its path to deny its emergence. Too much thinking, too much lying, too many naysayers, too many years of cheating in too many ways. How do we cheat ourselves out of Love? We lie to get with the opposite sex – by lying to them or sometimes to ourselves, or to our spouse, or friends or just because we have programmed ourselves to live a Hollywood version of the truth. If you don’t have an outside reference for what is true, you have to rely on yourself. If you choose yourself, what makes you a harbinger of truth? Is it your upbringing, your didactics, your philosophies accrued by sublimation and assimilation of a spiritual leader, religion, gang, cult or television, film, Broadway and so forth? Could God have actually been slick enough to have plant something from the Garden of Eden within our hearts to make it possible to know the difference between Good and Evil? Say, for the sake of clarity, that the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil actually wasn’t a myth, or Biblical ‘story’ or absurd fairy tale,
but a metaphor to possibly and most definitely to this single soul, a place of realization of the ultimate love a father could have for his children – give Unconditional love to his children – and then the super-power of love would take hold and lead hearts to love of each other and love of God – all within the absolute context most essential to any ‘cool’ Deity – FREE WILL. Why would you want human robots, programmed to perform and love only you? It would be redundant in its vicious circle of insanity – I love you because you made me love you because you gave me the love that I can now only love you with because you’re forcing me to love you. Duh – God is a bit bigger than that – as in – not even close. You get your knowledge of good and evil, you get your life, you get your love, you get your soul and you can do whatever you want. Period. Now – what have you been doing? Maybe reading this is the way you realize it’s time to evaluate and perhaps change. Or help someone see the light with your own true gift of love. Remember – it’s not a biblical clique that is on the tip of everyone’s tongue, but a scripture either in Psalms or a Transformers comic says, “Out of the heart, the mouth speaketh”. So those half-jokes have a bit of truth in them, don’t they? People tell you all the time: Gee – I never told anyone that before… because you are Unique, and can bring out the best or the worst of your fellow man / woman / child / animal / plant and oh yeah, God. Would you be happy to have God in your Broadway audience, or at the Yankee game [please not when some unmentioned players come to bat who cannot really hit too often like they used too]? Why not? Not living large and speaking the truth in Love? Why not? You can make more money with horror, zombies, saws, mutilation, murder and mayhem, so why not keep making that mean green money machine work until it blows up or turns to dust? One small reason – you’re messing up the morality of everyone from kids to the youth-challenged [older folk] by capitalizing on the fear factor – wouldn’t it be amazing to dose the world with uplifting, edifying and commercially viable films and shows, entertaining the hell out of everyone and kicking ass with a Little House on the Prairie and Touched by an Angel set into the 21st Century – and keep the values up and the excitement high – without being vulgar, condescending and morbid – a classy Hollywood, like a classy lady, is a thing of beauty and a joy to behold!
Did you ever stop to realize how much you learned from the behavior of whom you idolize? If you grew up with the black and white films of the 40’s? Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall taught us how to behave with the opposite sex while in the midst of robbing, killing, stealing and hiding from the law and the other bad guys – and he still is the HERO in this scenario while she is so light-years beyond the normal screen personality
that Lauren sets the scenes on fire – which became hotter by Humphrey’s obvious willingness to fall head over heels for her – and then they transcend celluloid acting with their love affair of the Heart for a life of Love. So we don’t necessarily walk through pure waters of gold and red roses – but that is our own choice. The economy of the Heart is not the economy of the country we live in. The taxes we pay are really oddly similar and quite different in the socio-economic analysis of Love – we cheat on our love taxes, we pay dearly with ruination in our love – the heart of your lover skips a beat when you pay the full price for Love – utter devotion, commitment, focus of Love to each other and facing the bookkeeping necessary to keep the business as well as the pleasure of Love inherently sacred. But we cheat because we’re shown how to cheat too often – think Hollywood hasn’t explicitly taught you the bad with the good? How many love affairs have you watched intimately, while picturing yourself as the leading man or woman, or observing “how they did it” or more dastardly, “how did they cheat and get away with it?”
Not to say Jimmy Stewart isn’t fantastic as a human being in life, which he was, and I was fortunate to know him for a fleeting moment – but on screen he represented screenwriters who took us from witchcraft in ”Bell, Book and Candle” with the outrageously sexy/beautiful/goddess Kim Novak, to his pathos between good and evil in “It’s A Wonderful Life”. So heroes and villains abound, but the balance is never fully understood if you grow up in the movies, or now
on your iPad or cable box watching the classics and the moral beliefs of thousands of films super-mix into a cacophony of too many instruments playing Beethoven and Metallica at the same time – the mix is something we need to decipher with an instrument that is far superior to military levels of encryption and yet can get confused, or down to kindergarten values of right and wrong – eat too much candy, greed, this is my toy, I want your toy – in love and all affairs – namely, this simple and Earth-shattering instrument of mass instruction is YOUR HEART. Super-Powered by Love, your heart is INVINCIBLE. Super-Powered by Love, your heart is a MIRACLE. Super-Powered by Love, your heart is MAGNIFICENT. Super-Powered by Love, your heart is energized by God and all the Love of all those around you. It’s God’s Kiss – the Love in Your Heart was the sweetest Kiss to the Soul that God could ever imagine – and God has Kissed each and every living thing on this and every other planet.
So Hollywood – GET KISSED!
