Greetings to all Visiting our pages,
I have been staring at the screen for a good couple of minutes, got up and made another cuppa, trying to find inspiration or a topic for the day. Strange to say this as there are much to speak about, and with the new moon in Gemini, one would think that words are not an issue…
I wonder if the universe is speaking in asking for silence. To venture inward and to see what must be said, and what must be released. Let us touch on the sixth chakra this morning; in hope that it will raise consciousness…
There is nothing easy about becoming conscious. My own life was much easier before I knew about the deeper meaning of choice, the power of choice that accompanies taking responsibility.
My heart goes out to people who are working hard to release their negative attitudes and painful memories. “Just tell me how, and I will do it”. We are forever looking for the easy meditation, the easy exercise, that will lift us out of the fog, but consciousness doesn’t work that way.
Ironically it is simple way out, the catch… it is not easy. Let go of how you thought your life should be and embrace the life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness.
So many people struggling to find their way are in that necessary but confusing state of “waiting”. A part of each of them is eager to allow the Divine will to direct their lives, yet they remain tormented by fear that they will lose all comfort on the physical plane should they actually surrender to it.
So they are held in a waiting position until they are strong enough to release that fear and embrace the deeper truth that “all will be well” – not “WELL” by our definition, perhaps, but certainly by the Divine Universal Guidance of Source.
The journey toward becoming conscious is often more attractive in theory than it is in practice. Pursuing consciousness theoretically through books and conversations allows us to fantasize about getting to the “promised land” without actually doing much.
Even the thought that a promised land exists can temporarily make the person feel better… And please don’t stone me for the next comment – to some extend “workshop addicts” are doing just that – getting high on the conversation, however returning home and to their lives exactly as they have left them.
Our minds become overloaded with information, and the day does come when we can no longer straddle two levels of perception simultaneously. Try, as we will, we cannot forever “visit” truth and then return to an illusion. At some point the process of change itself moves us forward – whether we like it or not….
Consciousness is not gained in a day, it is a at times a lonely and painful path. Sometimes taking everything, changing everything… until only truth remains.
Why am I sharing this with you today? I have been feeling another change coming. Unsure of the direction, but aware that the air around me is charged differently, the “life” I thought I should have is not what I need. The direction I have been steaming into, not meant for me… I too have returned daily to the illusion I have created, knowing the underlying truth, but ignoring it like a mule – more like a cat… 😊
It takes every ounce of courage to let go. Every ounce of strength for consciousness to lead and reveal the path forward. All I know, it is not on the chair I am sitting on, nor in the building I wake in.
“Becoming conscious means changing the rules by which we live and the beliefs we maintain. Our memories and attitudes are literally RULES that determine the quality of life as well as the strength of our bonds with others.
Always, a shift in awareness includes a period of ISOLATION and LONELINESS as one gets accustomed to the new level of TRUTH – and then – ALWAYS, new companions are found.
No one is left alone for long…
