June 23rd 2010 - No One Said it Would be Easy
© Sarah McCroskey 2008
So now that we’ve established some worthwhile parameters to expand our sense of self - that is The Vast Self - we’ve created a structure that can hold us in our true size – as a Limitless, Multidimensional Creator Being.
The Universal Laws which govern the truth of existence through all realms...
¤ You exist and always will – you’re eternal
¤ The All is the One and the One is the All – we’re interconnected as a holographic Whole
¤ What you put out is what you get back (so create consciously...)
¤ Everything changes...except for the first three. (from Bashar – www.bashar.org)
Then there are the Great Elements, Air, Fire, Water and Earth...Above, Below and Center which hold the container for our manifest existence. It is through the Great Elements that everything comes into form from the infinite realm of the formless.
So great, I’ve got a super structure for my SuperSelf.
Then we examine duality and the fact that it is an erroneous concept that we in the 3D world have swallowed, hook, line and sinker. Yes, it is through our agreement with the idea of duality that all of our problems surface, because by believing that we are separate (NOT SO) and could cease to exist (also NOT SO) we become entrenched in fear-based “reality” and it is painful. Disconnection generates suffering.
Here are a few flavors that kick our butts regularly...
¤ comparison – better than or less than creates a world of woes as we continually jockey for position
¤ regretting the past or worrying about the future
¤ someone’s gonna get me or mine
¤ there’s not enough money, food, time, love...you name it
¤ more, better and different rule our lives as we try to change ourselves, acquire stuff or manipulate our circumstances so we’ll be happy, fulfilled, less scared
So how does One stay firmly planted in the awareness of our true nature as Limitless Beings and live in a world that screams “Duality is Reality” at every turn?
You release that reality and start creating one that fits your self knowledge, your own true experience, your knowing. You connect with Spirit and your essence and do whatever practices, pastimes, reading and relating that support you in living your true nature.
And...you get used to Paradox.
You see, the Oneness, the interconnection, the Unified Field of All Possibility...the way it really is can’t show up as that in our current 3D realm. This is the realm of Duality and at the same time, it is FALSE. This is why all great truths are so hard to hold onto. In our lives truth can only exist as an experience. Once we try to turn it into something to hold onto, a concept, it’s power vanishes – BYE-BYE.
This is why you can’t LEARN spirituality or enlightenment. It’s an experience – not a thought or an idea or a program or even a practice. Various teachings can point to it and with luck EVOKE the experience, however fleeting. And practices, like meditation, can create an environment where the experience has a chance to show up, but the experience is generated only by You in connection with Source.
The closest thing that can represent that experience while using words to describe it is paradox. It slips right away. You’ve got it and then you don’t. THIS IS GOOD NEWS. It means you have closed in on truth. “Now you see it, now you don’t.” You’ve got to keep generating the experience by connecting, being present and choosing empowering interpretations of life.
So when your mind wants to conceptualize ‘truth’ and say’s you’ve failed for not being able to hold onto it, thank and dismiss it. When your mind says ‘everybody else is ahead of me’, thank and dismiss it. When your mind says you’re limited so quit pretending you’re not, thank and dismiss it. Keep tracking where you took on agreements based in fear and separation and UNCREATE them. With that neutralized energy, create a new awareness, that supports you in Being Pure Consciousness – your only real job.
The mind stores and retrieves data. It takes each and every experience you have and, lickity-split, compares and contrasts it to everything it holds in it’s memory bank – to determine two things...”am I safe” and “how do I stack up against others”. Given that you are eternally held and loved and that there is no “other”, the Mind’s premise is illusionary.
Yes, the Mind is helpful in this 3D scenario, this karmic theater ritual we’ve signed on to experience Creation in slow-mo and to witness our choice points. It’s helpful in that it keeps us from stepping in front of a bus in this fabricated duality paradigm. The Mind’s construct is “I’m separate and can die”. It is a data bank and pattern recognizer and has been programmed by eons of collective fear, plus your unresolved personal traumas. It compares and contrasts and tries to protect you from EVERYTHING including love and connection and being your Vast Self. And... it is not You. Not even close.
So, yes, it’s not easy staying centered in your essential nature and slipping free of the Conditioned Mind, but is there another game in town?
Holding fast to your knowing, loving yourself, creating A New Earth that supports the truth of Who We Are, building a foundation and community of like-minded others, studying the intricacies of our multidimensional beingness and continually witnessing and uncreating where we’ve bought the illusion – it’s a full time job, but could there be a more compelling, challenging or amazing path?
And don’t forget intention, our powertool. We CAN set potent intentions and ally with Source for their fulfillment. Right timing, right action, being a magical aspect of the Whole. We can’t know how it will unfold or what the timing will be, but our intention sets things in motion. Then let the outcome go. “SURRENDER, DOROTHY...” Relinquish the Mind’s desire to control/need to know...and watch as co-creation unfurls in a way we could never have orchestrated. This is why they call it “The Great Mystery”!
It may be helpful to create a powerful question or two to live into, like “How do I live fully in my experience?” or “What am I noticing right now?” or “How do I know and love myself, connect to guidance and align with All That Is and then create my life from there?” These inquiries place you into an empowered conversation with yourself.
Choose freedom and joyful receptivity and create audaciously.
And don’t forget to breathe............
