sense of humor
. It will come into play often, in this awakeningwe are engaged in. That’s what I’ve found, anyway. As long as weare enmeshed so tightly in our beliefs - especially in believing we arethe body, the mind, or anything physical at all - so long will we bebound - self-bound There are many who recognize the darkness of their entrapment. They recognize this, and want out of it. Yet so often they wait foranother to come and free them. They have given practically all of their power away, without recognizing that. What a quandary! Whata challenge. What great potential is there - unrecognized, untapped.We’ve not been taught to take responsibility for our life, you see. Howquick are we to point fingers of blame, here and there - anywhere. There’s quite a cast of characters provided - ready to play theoppressor, the bad guy - however we want to lay out our cast of characters - in our very own play - our life.Some people are angry that they were even born into this - into thisthat they see as such a mess.

Yet, they’re not. They are self-created cages that lock and limit ourexperience. While we can see the locked down and limited part - whatwe miss is the “self-created” aspect of it all. We don’t take anyresponsibility at all for our creation. Until we do, things just cannotchange. In heart we know that.
Why not - why can’t things change, absent a new seeing, a new perspective?Because all change must come from the inside. We say, “But, of course!” oncewe see this - but not until we see. Until then - we’re just trapped. We’re
on thesame level
with it. We gripe and bemoan our fate, this or that aspectof why things aren’t working out our way. That’s all we can see - fromthere.
