IS THAT A PROBLEM - OR A GIFT? HEART KNOWS
LITTLE TRUCK ♥ This video Today, by the Mayan calendar, is a day of ascension or completion energies - the ones that come ‘round every 13 days. Those are special days. I suppose all of the days are as special, in their own way, but ascension ones are nice in their sense of completion - of being able to look back over the cycle just past, but with the vision to sum it up - with the energy of a summing up, a completion. All life is cycles, of course. They are endless, and interpenetrate and inhabit one another - all synchronizing in ways the 3D self does not see the wholeness of. One must transcend a certain level in order to be able to see its wholeness. As long as one is identified within it, within any part of it, one does not have sufficient perspective to view the whole. It’s like Einstein said about problems - they cannot be solved by remaining on the same level with them. We must take a step up or back to fully see or comprehend. How often our seeing and our comprehension go together. Vision, this inner sort of vision, is such a marvelous thing. By backing off from things, from situations - even from the life - and inhabiting just the vision - one can garner so much. It’s amazing what vision can bring. With this vision, Heart Vision, goes comprehension, quite often - a level of comprehension that both transcends and contains what is seen. There’s an inner understanding that, when it is present, goes well beyond what the mind can deliver. There are those who will not believe the 3D mind can be transcended, or that it is transcended this way. I care not. Let them have their experience of life - I have mine.
Belief is what most often gets in the way of things - of people understanding one another. Misunderstanding results when belief systems don’t harmonize. As a whole, mankind has not been taught, in this age, the power of belief - how belief, itself, structures the life, the experiences within it. This would be sad, if it were not for the fact that we are arising up and out of all this nonsense - of the webs of lies and beliefs we’re encased within. For whatever reasons this is happening, I am grateful for it. We all deserve to know. That’s how I see it, anyway. It’s time to leave falsehoods - all of them - behind. Let them eat dust. We’re waking up. It’s like we’re shedding an old garment - some slowly, some rather fast - that has bound us and limited us for so long. We’ve been shackled and caged in our own sets of beliefs - yet without knowing that. How very strange, that we could be reduced to this state, yet remain so unknowing. Oh sure - on some level or other we know all about this. I know that, as well. And it does bring some comfort - it really does. But not always. Why not? I don’t know - perhaps because to go and dive into that inner knowing doesn’t provide the whole answer. There’s also this part of us, still here - the 3D part - that’s not aware of it. So, we’re as if disconnected - a bit schizophrenic - to be both knowing and not, at the same time. Very strange, on the one hand. On the other, it’s just the two sides of the coin - the same coin. You see, our beliefs get in the way of so much we could experience. Beliefs are powerful. They have to be dealth (interesting ‘Typo’ for dealt) with before moving on. They hold us back. The very belief structures, themselves, must be challenged. For, based on beliefs, we create things - things we like, yes, but also things we hate and often regret. All that we see - we’re the creators of that. No, not the 3D level of us - but us, all the same. We create things like the belief structures we’re entangled in, to this day - with our very own beliefs being that which is holding us back.
What a paradoxical thing Life is! It’s very odd, and it’s good to have or develop a
good sense of humor. It will come into play often, in this awakening
we are engaged in. That’s what I’ve found, anyway. As long as we are enmeshed so tightly in our beliefs - especially in believing we are the body, the mind, or anything physical at all - so long will we be bound - 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 for another to come and free them. They have given practically all of their power away, without recognizing that. What a quandary! What a challenge. What great potential is there - unrecognized, untapped. We’ve not been taught to take responsibility for our life, you see. How quick are we to point fingers of blame, here and there - anywhere. There’s quite a cast of characters provided - ready to play the oppressor, 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 this that they see as such a mess. They are angry about most everything - with fingers of blame pointing outward, much like quills on a porcupine. I wish they could see themselves this way, even once. It would help. They would laugh.
Why would it help? Because without a new vision, a new perspective on things,
nothing changes. It all remains the same - even over multiple lifetimes we carry such attitudes. Their origins go very deep. They grow into such a magnitude that, of course, they seem very real insurmountable. Yet, they’re not. They are self-created cages that lock and limit our experience. While we can see the locked down and limited part - what we miss is the “self-created” aspect of it all. We don’t take any responsibility at all for our creation. Until we do, things just cannot change. 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!” once we see this - but not until we see. Until then - we’re just trapped. We’re on the
same level with it. We gripe and bemoan our fate, this or that aspect of why things aren’t working out our way. That’s all we can see - from there.
Who knows what will be the catalyst for each one - to open Heart Vision, the inner eye, which is single and complete? It is different for each one. For some, even for many, it is the astral travel, the OBE (Out of Body Experience), or the NDE (Near Death Experience) - of self or another. This will or can bring on quite a change - an altered perspective. It takes you out of yourself - of the ‘self’ you thought self to be. For others, it will be reading someone else’s words, of stepping in, for just a bit, to another experience or perspective - that will turn the key in the self-created lock down - so they can be free. However it happens, most of us have at least had a taste of this. Even reading fiction or watching a good movie can, for a while, take us out of our cage a bit. It doesn’t have to be some great, grand experience.
It doesn’t matter what the catalyst is. What matters is what you then see.
What matters is if you can let go of your self-created belief system long enough to explore new territory. How well can you let go? Are you practicing that? It can be helpful - not being attached, either to things or to ways of viewing them. Of course, all you need do is to center in heart, and the rest is taken care of, pretty much. Heart is not locked down in any way. It’s not connected to just this or to that. Heart is free. Heart has no fear, either. When in heart, you’re quite free. Can you recognize it? Or do beliefs get in the way of experiencing this interior freedom?
Now, most people will have another experience of this. They’ll center down, but then what they’ll see will be some sort of issue or problem that presents itself. They’ll think they’re not free. They’ll be looking at that and just seeing a
problem - one they’d rather not see - one from which they prefer to be free. We’ve all had this experience. Well, I’d like to offer another perspective on that, if I may. Consider this - perhaps what you’re seeing is just exactly what Higher Self has put, there, in front of you. Have you asked Higher Self why it did that? What’s important, there in that, for you to see? Do your beliefs interfere with seeing Higher Self acting this way? Your beliefs around negativity, for instance or for example?
Is it possible that what you’re viewing as a problem or issue, there, could be actually a gift? What if Higher Self put that there just to show you
something? What if you’re being shown the main or most important block in your way? Is it possible that Higher Self would have something to say on this - if you would just ask?
There’s a law we run up against, often. It’s called Free Will. It can also be
said as “none compels.” In certain ways we’re more free than we realize - or take advantage of. We just believe ourselves into being trapped. Just consider if this could be so. Be open to it - to the possibility.
Now, there’s a real conversation that can go on, once you’re centered in heart, that you may not have taken full advantage of - yet. The trick is - you must ask. Higher Self will not force anything on you. None compels, remember. Thus, if you don’t ask - you don’t learn. Again, please see it like this - you are more in
control than you may yet see. It’s a good thing, not a problem. Do you see it like this? If not, what beliefs are in the way? What makes you see what Life presents as a problem? Could you perhaps make an attitude change, here - and see what remains of that problem - once you’ve ceased to view it that way? Now, back into heart, please. Let’s see what I’m saying, here. How to sum it the best way to help you break through to another level? I don’t know. Just remember that it’s called the “still, small voice” for a reason. It doesn’t shout. It doesn’t argue with you. It requires a certain amount of presence - of just being still - of just being - maybe even of asking quietly - before it is heard. One thing I can share, though - is that, on some level, the Inner Voice is always speaking with you. You’re never, no not ever, all alone. Just have a look at that word, for example - alone. Just add one more letter that’s already present, there - and it becomes, “all one,” not alone. All one. Alone = all one. I like that. Well, that’s the underlying reality, there. Can you see? If not, can you at least start to see how you limit yourself - by your beliefs? If you want help with this seeing - go within. That help is quite literally always present - there in heart. If you will just go there, and be still
for a bit - you will find this. You’re no different than anyone else. It’s present for everyone - you don’t even have to be “good” for this - it just is. ;) So, next time you go within, and something comes before your sight something you’re tempted to look away from or brush off - look again. That’s all I’m saying, here. Look again, to just see if it may be something Higher Self is sharing with you. Ask some questions - why not? Ask “what is the gift, here?” Is there some possible growth hidden within or through the appearance of this seeming problem or negativity? Then simply be still. Oh, and be ready for a surprise. Just be open. One never knows, of course. Heart knows, though. Heart can distinguish between what is just the mind trying to make a distraction - and what the Higher Self gives. Heart simply knows. Don’t worry yourself with it. Just let go. Listening and observing, just watching is good - but sometimes it helps to ask a question or two. Not too many, now - that would be mind. Stay in heart. ♥
