The dual potential of the experience

Life in its essence is extremely simple and its guidelines easy to follow for an aware being. The problem is that nowadays we are mostly navigating adrift, without a clue in this ocean called life. Everything that happens to us has the potential to destroy us (to drag us deeper into the illusion) or to uplift us, meaning to give us the tools for our conscious awakening, towards realizing who we are and what’s the purpose for incarnating in this particular realm in this particular day and age, but more so: the pain that we are supposed to notice, accept and work with in order for it to become obsolete.

Everything that happens to us is definitely something that we have to experience, especially since it happened already. The first thing we can do to properly address the matter is to accept it no matter how hard it is to do so.

Acceptance itself it’s such a powerful tool that reduces a lot the negative impact of some unfortunate happenings.

When we accept something that happens, we exit already the low vibrational vortex of victimization, whining, guilt, shame and other unnecessary emotions and feelings. If we truly accept something there’s no reason anymore to roam in what happened, we automatically step into the present moment and instead of asking ourselves how would it have been if we would have act or said something differently, – which is useless because that moment is gone, and there’s absolutely no reason to waste your time and energy accusing self or other/-s, trying to project potential other approaches – we should rather accept what happened. So once you have accepted, the “problem” is already half solved.  

Working with own faults, distortions and programs is way easier when those flaws are brought to the surface by a certain life event or triggered by a person in your life. I remember that someone asked me: “Well but how do I work my crap out?” 

The first step is noticing the existence of the “crap”, secondly you accept the fact that it is there inside yourself and that it is affecting your life, your decisions and the outcome of your actions. The worst mistake that we’ve all been through throughout our lives is to blame external actors (aggressors) and situations. Take full responsibility, there’s no other way. The third part is working with it. Accepting the responsibility for that character flaw (like victimization, narcissism, controlling nature, aggression, lying…) and be ready to watch with awareness that particular flaw (for the moment) and decide to consciously stop its influence in your life. One way of working with it would be to notice when was the first time that we remember a similar pain to the one that we’re experiencing in the present circumstance even if the events might look different and unrelated. Then we should start asking, like kids, “Why do I have this pain? Because I feel hurt. Why do I feel hurt? Because I did that. Why have I done that?”… and so on until you manage to get to the root of the problem. Probably it’s useless to repeat that this will not work unless a full openness and truthfulness to self is employed. Most likely the root cause of the problem is some misinterpretation of a childhood occurrence, an over-exaggerated perspective over that early experience. Or it can be even some very serious abuse, violation, violence or even small – totally silly for our mind now- events where we felt ashamed, guilty, abused, raped, betrayed, alone, deserted, sinful and so on… One way of transcending it is to consciously go in to that same situation and look at the actual event happening in front of you, you being the victim (as a child – in that moment) and you being an adult, now, a spectator to the whole drama. Feel that pain fully in your body, accept it if still there, because it will not go unless you are experiencing it fully, getting it exhausted. See it in a very detached way, forgive yourself and whoever was the trigger or aggressor, know that we are supposed to take full responsibility for everything that happens in our lives, and know that nobody is truly a victim. Know that you are lighter now, having a better chance to evolve out of your misery because of that event taking place. Hug that broken, hurt child that is suffering in the replayed memory, cry together if necessary, but then explain the child that everything that we are experiencing is necessary for our further growth and beyond everything that we’ve learned, everything is definitely correct and always in alignment with the Divine construct laws to which our lives abide as everything else in the Existence.

So keep always in mind the dual potential of whatever happens in your life and remember that it’s only us and our reactions to it that truly determines the outcome of that (otherwise neutral life circumstance). We are the only ones self-sabotaging our own lives by choosing always the same path, the old path that we know, the automatic response of the autopilot, the victimized perspective. Letting go with ease is crucial, it’s the choice that defines who we are at the moment. Surrender and let go of everything, embrace challenges, be always ready for change, embrace things that you used to run from, like facing problems, pains, hard work and struggle or new experiences that you would have passed in the past otherwise. In order for you to pick different fruits from your garden you have to definitely plant different trees. Old trees will invariably give the fruits that you already know. Without a new approach, everything will continue as previously, so there’s no one to blame for your life circumstances but yourself, your choices and past deeds. But “blaming” (as a choice of wording) can be misleading, so you shouldn’t even blame yourself. Don’t blame anyone, but instead take responsibility for everything and remember that the secret is in your actions or the lack of them, in what you say or what you don’t say. Study your own being and the knowledge that is scattered in millions of books and individuals, will be unfolding from within yourself with ease. It was always there hidden under tons of unnecessary junk that you started sorting out. You were always That which is the essence of everything surrounding us. Good luck with sorting that huge pile out, I got some crap to work with myself 😁.

When the hell breaks loose

The true evolution is continuous change. All life circumstances and events are in continuous movement. Karma is fastly paid and tests are arising more and more. When the yogi is close, the whole “hell” breaks loose..yet don’t be scared, it is only the inner negativity which comes to the surface to be worked with and eventually transcended. 

On this path towards remembering who we are there’s no longer stability, whole worlds are created, and destroyed in minutes the entire Creation is revealed in front of us. The victimized will feel like doomed. The true seeker will realize that he’s learning so fast that the whole world is moving faster for him only.

The price of evolution is continuous movement and “letting go”. 

We are like in a cosmic washing machine, continuously spinning faster and faster until we either succumb to the trials and go back to the old or we find our inner peace which eventually will override the external turmoil. 

The worst of the storms is the biggest blessing. The hecticness of life is a test of the level of inner contentment, acceptance and true surrender. 

Life seems more and more like a movie and the realization of its illusory nature is more and more revealed through the almost chaotic, intense ups and downs that push our boundaries to the very limit. In the midst of drama there’s a chance to realize that we are just too involved in the “movie” although we are the spectator, the actor, the director and the movie itself. Once this realization is taking place, the whole illusion collapses like a mask from own face and the true nature of self and the external world can be grasped. 

Although this realization is very powerful and has the chance to totally shift our perspective about things, if the time is not yet right we might continue to wonder around to exhaust whatever we came here to exhaust. But that true realization is a seed of destruction that will grow more and more. It’s the very destruction of the ignorance, the disillusionment that we’ve been searching our entire existence and although we might waste some time on things that are not part of the newer paradigm growing inside of us, eventually we will wake up to realize the futility of chasing chimeras and decide to follow what’s eternal and true. 

Cheer up dear souls, there’s not even one which eventually won’t come back to the Source, even after hundreds and hundreds of lives. 

After all it’s nothing but a combination of determination, courage, simplicity, selflessness and inner purity that lead us to the real inner-contentment, the stillness that is who we truly are. We are all One, the only difference is timing which exists only in this experience. We are all perfect already, yet each individual has a different goal and that determines the length of the journey. And it’s all happening only in this dimension, in other dimensions we are That already. 

The desires are still keeping us prisoners to the duality, the very pleasure has in it embedded the pain. Hence love has in it the pain of loss, enjoyment of food, the hunger, and so on. Once we let go of everything the true eyes are slowly opening and we are allowed to see the illusion unfolding and its mechanisms are revealed. 

We might still love, eat and enjoy life, but there will be no desire and no attachment that were keeping us from Being. Now everything will happen through Beingness, everything will come from the inner contentment that will annihilate the “good” or “bad” outcomes of our actions since there will be just a pure flow of your Being, unobstructed by desire to control this flow. 

Pain – the driving force of evolution

 


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.
