Pain is horrible, right? I know, I’ve been there… Pain is the very reason for the evolution of souls having an experience in the human body.
We are all, to some degree, running away from pain, because pain is trying to change us. Pain is the element that is pushing us to the “next level”. Through pain, the body gets stronger. Through pain, the courageous become fearless and indestructible. But many drown in the water we need for our survival. With pain, the choice of how we deal with it is up to each individual. Many have died because the pain was too strong, or self destructed, falling for self-pity. But the one who survives it and embraces it, gets the boon, the boon of the next level of pain, which has to be transcended too. There are several levels, and whenever one feels or hopes that it may be the last one… Surprise! There’s more.
But life is correct. We’re just experiencing whatever we are supposed to experience. Everything is just right at all points in time, although it may seem hard to believe. Life also gives a moment of respite between levels, like the gift of experiencing glimpses of happiness from time to time. Enjoy, but don’t get too comfortable, since the happiness is just a resting-moment in between.
The secret is to embrace the pain, to transform it into your dearest friend, because this friend that hurts you, wants you to be better. I am not advocating masochism. That is just a perverted way of enjoyment for traumatized people. But the pain that you are experiencing, is the kick in the butt that makes you jump one meter (guess where)… Forward!
Stop blaming, whining and being victimized. Be the pain! Stay with it as long as it’s there. Welcome it like a gift, because there is light, bright light inside of that black hole. The gray-dark hue that colours our life is just an illusion created by the ego (which doesn’t want us to evolve). The ego wants us to be lazy, procrastinate and cry in self-pity. The ego wants us to stay in the cozy, warm place, instead of voyage beyond the horizon(out of the box). There’s no point in stopping on the path; it’s a constant climb… Don’t stop climbing, because there’s always a better place ahead. Enjoy for a moment and start again. Go for the next step, for the more advanced moment of pain. Eventually, the pain will not disappear, but it will stop hurting. It will just be there like a noisy mosquito that’s stopped bothering us because we have accepted it as a part of ourselves. When that happens, a new “You” will emerge. Life will cease to exist as seen previously by the veiled, limited mind. It will be the real awakening that everyone is dreaming of. Yet, not many are ready to go through it. Not many people are ready to work their asses off for that. That’s why the saviour-type religions thrive, because everyone expects to be saved, expects to be pulled out of the misery by someone, or expects some kind of “collective ascension” to happen. Everyone is hoping for some shift from the 3rd to the 5th dimension. Pure bullshit. This is all just promoting the idea that saving comes from the outside, leading us to procrastination and waiting for spiritual masters or whatever savior, to come our way and get us to safety.
Work! The real evolution is through hard work with one’s self, hard work against the lazy nature of the ego, a continuous and assiduous struggle against something which is deeply infecting your being and not allowing the true Self to emerge.
Everyone can “do” the New Age (so-called) spirituality. You just choose from Arcturians, Pleiadeans, Syrians, unicorns, angels and other imaginary friends that are coming to the rescue. Hello?? Nobody is coming to rescue you but Yourself. Arm yourself with patience and hard work on all levels and whenever you feel like, “hey, let’s leave this for tomorrow,” do double the work that you were ready to leave for tomorrow.
Do you have what it takes? Definitely. Is it an easy task? Definitely not. Every piece of this puzzle is going against one’s ego and its bad programming and is, like all medicine that is good for the body, bitter. All that is painful, has a good purpose for our evolution. Be sturdy and start welcoming the pain. Hardships make you contemplate, make you question, make you thrive. “Good” things are just an oasis where you are able to enjoy a short break on the road towards the destination. The destination is eternal evolution; it’s an unceasing effort to improve and go for perfection. You are already Perfect, but in order to rediscover it, lots of layers of crap have to be removed. Call on yourself now, to start removing the crap layer by layer. It can take lifetimes, but once you have made your decision, no one can stop you. The matrix will try smartly, to trick one into believing that they can lay low for a while, that they should enjoy a discrete moment in time. Enjoyment has to be with you all the time. Enjoy working through conscious living, knowing that it is your biggest service towards yourself and the world. You should enjoy observing your emotions and pain. Enjoy becoming thoughtless, without allowing the mind to create. Silence the mind. Enjoy pain, and the new dimension will open. Enjoy everything that you used to run away from, and those things will transform you into a Perfect Lustrous Being of Light. Embrace challenges, embrace pain, embrace struggle. Work when you feel like resting, because everything is upside down and the sweet things do harm and the bitter ones heal.
