Who Is Ready to Own Their Incarnation?
There are no problems, only solutions awaiting discovery. How many of us see life this way? If we do, why is that? If we don’t, why not?
We’re all being programmed. It started with our parents, then went into high gear in school. Among the many things we were taught, these were likely omitted:
“It will never be possible by pure reason to arrive at some absolute truth.“ ~Werner Heisenberg, Physics and Philosophy
“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Most of us don’t yet realize, with Sophocles, that
“What people believe prevails over the truth. “
We don’t realize the extent to which we’re creating our own reality; our own experience of reality. We’re under the misperception that we all occupy the same reality simply because we can see & interact with one another. In the midst of the current chaotic political mess, many are coming to realize that just isn’t the case. Friends & neighbors can live in drastically different realities, perceiving the same words & actions in amazingly different ways.
We haven’t been taught or guided to own our experience of reality, to lay claim to it, to perceive the guidance it continually offers. Though we may be old enough to be aware that hindsight is often 20/20, that doesn’t mean we get it when it’s happening. That takes some reflection.
Everything that happens is a gift.
Who can accept that? If you can’t accept it, will you at least choose to consider the possibility it’s true? We underestimate the power of perspective all the time, not realizing how life-changing a shift in perspective can be.
Our challenge is the Belief Systems with which we’ve been burdened — or gifted — take your pick. Our beliefs will craft our perspective, our experience of reality, until we put ourselves — our Self — more firmly in the saddle & take up the reins of control. Who is ready to own their incarnation?
Einstein expressed an important point, here:
“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”
Einstein well knew that dreams & daydreaming bore more valuable fruits than mental endeavoring. When the mental work is in service to Heart, to our Inner Being, only then is it most useful. Otherwise, it can make us like a dog chasing our tail.
We do best to begin with a certain emptiness, a lack of arrogance that lets us be open to All That Is, to many perspectives. Only then do we open ourselves to inner guidance. When we come to a topic convinced we know all about it, we’re closed to new input of any kind. A favorite quote:
“To know that you do not know is the best.
To think you know when you do not is a disease.
Recognizing this disease as a disease is to be free of it.”
― Lao Tzu
How many of us recognize that to think that we know when we don’t is a disease? How many people do we know who recognize this? Our arrogance usually gets in the way, so convinced that we know what we know, not open to realizing we only think we know. We know but one perspective. It halts our progress along these lines, feeding our arrogance.
We do all of this without even being aware of it. So very strange, yes? As we begin to awaken, we get many a good laugh at the self, at our expense. They may begin with a tinge of embarrassment, but that quickly passes, enabling the easy flow of a chuckle or deep belly laughter.
We’re not used to paying much attention to ourselves; not this way. Most of us don’t have a good relationship with ourselves. Instead, we’re critical, never feeling we meet whatever standards we’ve set, never feeling we’re quite good enough. That works against us. It’s pure nonsense, but we don’t see that until we’re ready to do so.
It’s not visible until we’re ready to see it, & there’s nothing we or anyone else can do about that.
If you feel a certain kindship (“typo” for kinship), a friendship with yourself, that’s great. It’s evidence you’re going deeper within, not living just on the surface of life, i.e., in the mental realm. It won’t be the mind that reveals any of this to us. Heart does that, we know not how nor from whence it comes.
We want so much to be loved, don’t we? Who doesn’t want to be truly loved & appreciated? What if the requirement for that is to first give that Love to the self/Self? It’s not so much that there’s an “I” who gives something to a “self,” either. It’s not like that. It’s more like us getting out of the way of a natural flow.
Love is our natural state.
We’ve learned how to get in the way, how to block it at every turn. We’ve been programmed that way, so let there be no judgment around it, no sense of guilt, but rather a simple acceptance of What Is as our starting point. It’s just something we observe at some point — when that readiness arises.
Love of self/Self is all we really need. In the presence of That, all the rest takes care of itself. Then, we’re tutored & guided by more than just parents or teachers, bosses or counselors. Somehow — we don’t know how — the Universe, ItSelf, begins to guide us. It seems to come both from without & from within, simultaneously. It’s quite strange.
Life is infinitely better than what we’ve been programmed to believe it is or it could be; infinitely better, mind you. We will, at some point, so far exceed our expectations as to make them appear to be childish, to be ridiculous & nonsensical.
Our job isn’t to somehow take ourselves there, into such a state. Oh no, our job is to get the heck out of our way. Universe will teach & show us how we are & have ever been the ONLY one in our way. Again, though, this is only in the presence of an inner readiness that no one can command. It just shows up when it will, quite unexplained & unexplainable.
So, if we can at least consider these things as possibilities, that’s great; a great sign. We can open ourselves to dream, much as Einstein often did, enabling his best inspirations to flow.
It’s a getting out of the way, a setting of mind’s offerings to the side.
For now, we can at least entertain the possibility that Life is & is meant to be much better, much finer than any mind can conceive. We can accept the possibility that whatever is happening to & right around us is a gift, is for our benefit.
Once we enable ourselves to consider things this way, an important door is opening. We are NOT who we take ourselves to be; certainly not limited to the body-mind form. We are awareness, itself, Source-in-form, ultimately unbounded & unlimited. While our 3D body-mind will retain certain limitations, if we’re sufficiently open, we’ll be shown that most of those are not strictly necessary.
We engage with 3D (or whatever-D) for the fun of it, friends. We’re not here to do a job, not here to learn new things, not here even to awaken. We can choose to realize that we’re already — as Source-in-form — quite thoroughly awakened. We have a LOT of perspectives to shift, a lot of re-membering to enable.
The point of it all is to enjoy the NowHere moment, the NowHere-ness of it all. Our enjoyment (our In-Joy-Me-Net) is such a vital aspect of our overall awakening. Joy is truly the motor of life. I forget who said that. 😃
It’s all so much simpler than our mind would have it be. Minds feed on complexity. That’s fine for the mind, but not so much for Who we are. At our best, we radiate Joy, a joie de vivre that’s palpable around us.
Let’s be experts in Joy, dear brethren, no longer settling for anything less.
When the globalist push is to divide-and-conquer us, to bring us down, let us laugh & just slip away, slip that noose & move on. If something needs to be fixed, let us delve in with joy. We have better things to Be than bothered or angry, than to generate food for the beast.
Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote for today, 2019/09/27
If you’re not selfish enough to want to feel good, then you can’t connect with the energy that is your Source which does always feel good.
