I’ve been having a lot of conversations over the last few days. Friends wondering what to do as the familiar reality crumbles around them.The thing I’ve picked up most from this is a great insecurity about making mistakes. Making the wrong decisions. And a thousand things that amount to a mental storm that’s impossible to sort out. At least not if you try to find the solution through a pure process of thinking. And certainly not if there is an undercurrent of fear mixed in with that thinking.
The solution lies in letting the fear fall away and entering a sacred force of order that is always waiting in the background to prepare the way for you.
When that presence is renewed again and again, moment by moment, you pass through a journey that is guided by wonders and right order.
All beings possess a supreme right! In our true being, we are not the subjects of our destiny; we are its creators.Amir Ra Maat Kala Rohan
When we come into the world, we do not know what the world is or who we are. We only see colors, hear sounds, feel cold, warmth, and textures, and a vivid current of feelings flows through our being.
We have no concepts, no prejudices, no aversions, and no templates except those deep in our genetics for our physical survival.
Each person begins his or her path in this way. And every one of these small wonder beings can become ANYTHING. Every path of life is wide open.
And then our perfect little balloon of bone and water is formed by imprints that shape it. We have experiences, like pain and pleasure, and try out all the things we can do with our little bodies, while other people comment on our experiences and tell us what we are experiencing, who we are and what we can or cannot do.
References to learn and understand and cope in this reality are important to function.
We therefore adopt the reference points given to us by parents, siblings, teachers, friends, media. Depending on what they exposed us to, this program includes certain fears, likes, dislikes and opinions that are not the result of our own relaizations.
All the experiences we have, everything we perceive, now run through this ever-increasing filter that has put dents and hardenings on our once unformed existence. We are no longer round, smooth and flexible; we perceive everything through learned distortions.
Beyond and within all our faults, mistakes and follies lies a secret power. A power that compels us to come home to love and order.Amir Ra Maat Kala Rohan
Through this dented vessel runs an invincible thread of divine light in which our self-awareness dwells. This light of self-awareness is inherent to every human being.
Even though this light is eternal, the human mind is susceptible to chaos and illusion and can lose sight of the light of self-awareness for a time, surrendering its perception to the programmed limitations of its reality and a collective hive psyche. This hive psyche is made up of the psychic field of people who share a similar frequency band of reality.
If you swim unconsciously, without being aware of yourself, in this collective, then you will be magnetically carried away when it has picked up speed and is heading for the abyss of darkness.
All the dents in our psychological form are nothing more than thought forms we have accepted as truth without questioning.
The more we look at, recognize and let go of the fears and programming, the more the light of true self knowledge will shine into our lives and support our reason for being.
Life then works to support you, for you have become a healing cell for the collective. But this can only happen if you can stand in your faith and are willing to give up your limitations.
What would it feel like if all these imprints were gone, and you were suddenly back in the pure, unadultered state that is at the core of all human beings?
(Take a moment and try to feel into that)
Feel the freedom that comes when you can do anything and everything is possible. When there is no “if” and when there is no “but”.
When you are not insecure, lonely, incapable, stupid, smart, ugly, beautiful, funny, boring, fat, thin, damaged ….
You simply ARE. You are pure creativity that gives birth to moment after moment.
You are forever pure, forever young, forever free.
Feel for a moment what it is like when there is no “I can’t because…”.
When there is only a YES, a wide-eyed wonder and full responsibility for your being in every moment.
Only the breath of the Divine touches your feathers.
Everything that comes is part of your creation. All mistakes, all challenges, are a new opportunity for truth and the beginning of a new creation.
Your response to the challenge initiates the direction of that creation. Choose wisely.
Your true ideal path exists, but it is not pre-designed.
It is fluid and sets a new stepping stone before your lifted foot in every moment.
The wisdom with which you meet the moment decides whether the stepping stone forms a piece of path towards the highest truth or leads into a detour.
We, as human beings, are divine seeds that fall on the earth and grow. Influences, such as the wind, the sun, storms, drought and rain, affect the growth of the seed.
What distinguishes humans from a plant or an animal is that we are not only exposed to the circumstances in which we have landed by some kind of divine lottery. We have the opportunity to take our destiny into our own hands.
We make a choice whether we want to or not. Not acting is also a choice.
That choice is either to remain unconscious and numb the higher impulses that drive us forward in our evolution, or to make the choice to grow in awe beyond the assumed limits of human existence.
The aim of Enlightenment is not to get you to God—you are already with God. The aim of Enlightenment is to realize how to play the game.”Aaravindha Himadra
When the limitations and fear is gone, you can recreate and see without illusion what really lies within your possibilities now.
Only then can you choose your next steps on the adventure journey of this finite dream in a dream of infinity.
Thank you to my teacher Aaravindha Himadra, whom I can never fully thank enough for what he is giving me and everyone his life touches!
Aaravindha is an ideal example for me to stay in this flow. He doesn’t draw conclusions and adjusts his course as he flies when the old course leads to a dead end.
Last night we had a very interesting conversation about how the future is not fixed. Only the past is.
Anyone who says they can predict the future is not telling the truth. The truth is made up of currents of probabilities that are in constant fluctuation depending on people’s actions and choices.
Everything is possible.
A seer can perceive the strongest probabilities and sort them out from this ocean. But they are still probabilities that rise and change like waves of a sea. And never before has our collective been in such a fluctuation of currents between light and darkness.
There is only one moment, the moment you are in, in which you set the direction of your path. You simply are, as time flows by.
This way of being the teacher is not easy for most students to understand. Even most spiritual people look for stepping stones that offer certainty, security, and something definitive. Certainty of where things are going and a guarantee that everything will happen in a predictable way.
A safe harbor. But this safe harbor is only reached when the search for it has given way to the blissful intoxication of the permanently unknown.
The games have begun. You have all the tools in your hand, young Jedi! Your time has come. No matter where you are and where your path takes you, it will be the highest path if it is paved with stones of truth.
P.S. This article is the introduction to a series of essays that illuminate in a real-life way how we can use the human-divine virtues of courage, gratitude, innocence, compassion, ahimsa, generosity, faith to bring our lives into higher manifestation.
