There are so many readily available ways to not be our authentic
They come easy, or so we think, since
they're so rampant in our shallow societal system. But the price is
seriously self imposed, crippling limitation.
Social engineering is a massive subject. That humanity has
been dumbed down is a huge understatement. We've been severely
handicapped in ways we can hardly discern, hence their disastrous
grip and closed self reinforcing loops have such sway.
By design we cannot see what
is truly going on.
To transcend any and all of these systems is imperative. This is why
the true spiritual masters throughout time have said that
transcending mind is fundamental to true discovery and personal
The mind plays tricks - seriously
distracting ones. The mind breeds such a cloud of all knowing self
importance we tend to bend to its every whim.
Beware the mind-field.
Stay conscious and observe...
Mechanisms - Social Contracts
Man, these are a bitch.
What agreeance we make with others in
order to be "friends" or tolerate each other. Heavy duty stuff, and
not easy to own up to. Again the root to everything is the
to let go of anything and
everything we're attached to.
A very big deal in every way and one we need to be consciously aware
We all do it all the time in order to "get along". It dissipates as
we become our authentic selves. That's the good news. But
disentangling from contracts can be a real tough ride, and not an
easy thing to handle with grace.
But it has to be done...
The Inner Child, and Shadow Work
All of us are subject to triggers that activate extremely dangerous
reactions that completely cloud our minds and hearts.
Our interactions are affected by
unresolved past issues, only because we haven't explored and
identified the truth of our upbringings.
Co-dependency born of abandonment begins at birth. It's passed on by
unconscious parents - and all parents are complicit, as were their
parents. We spend the rest of our lives looking for acceptance and
affirmation as a result, as well as many other entangled issues.
None of us were acknowledged to be the spiritual creatures we
arrived as. The portal soon closed and we were born into a world of
abuse and engineered survival challenges of every sort. We searched
for true love and understanding from the start, but it was denied.
And we were left confused, desperate, and hungry for true love and
Again, a massive subject that deserves real investigation and
application. It's way too much to fully explain here. You can liken
these deeper issues to impacted spiritual teeth. They are painful,
often infected, and need surgery.
If you dive into this subject and are
willing to expose yourself fully and the digging it entails, the
healing can begin.
I've been going through some serious self discovery for some time
It's not all that pleasant, yet it is
extremely liberating and empowering. Besides other
issues in my life, my recent separation from Elle brought up more
things than I could handle at times and I was often overwhelmed with
emotional instinctive reactions and just plain gunk that came up.
Even knowing the conscious and detached observer mode is the only
true and awake way to handle it, I was flooded with reactions that
in turn triggered all kinds of strange crap from my past.
It seems a current, justified feeling
and response when going through things like this, but all of it is
based in past childhood and otherwise traumas and feelings of
abandonment, abuse, learned co-dependency and everything I grew up
I've become aware of much over my life time and thought I was
getting a handle on this challenge called living, but these
past months have made mincemeat of my illusions.
And I'm happy for it, although it hurts like a bitch. I'm fully
committed to going all the way and I guess Universe is helping me
along with these very deep and painful tests.
It seems we have to get to the extreme
before we really pay attention and look for the true bigger picture
in always newer ways.
Face It Head
All I can say is the quickest way through these types of issues is
We're at a very poignant time in human
history with the veil lifting so dramatically of late.
I'm still in the midst of all this, but I can see the light at the
end of the tunnel. It never turns off, we just don't see it in the
preoccupation with our selves we naturally succumb to, and the smoke
of the burning fires of purification billowing about us. That's just
the nature of the transformation.
If we're willing to take it on the chin and face whatever we need to
we'll get through it all the quicker. But it's not without setbacks
and there's no formula for going through any type of crisis.
The key is honesty and
determination, in my opinion. That's what's seeing me through,
so far, and being as loving as possible while the flames of hell
seem to lick my my every nerve.
Not fun when the fires rage, but learn we can. And will.
Enjoy the ride. All things pass. Try to take it with grace when it
comes your way. You'll fall flat on your face many times but just
keep getting up. We're all getting through this.
It's just part of the process, and all
