Life organizes and reorganizes endlessly. It doesn’t need our agreement to change. It was unfolding before we emerged and it will continue after we leave our bodies. Life will not stop its unfolding for us or as us. Rather Life unfolds through us. We, you and I, are the unfolding of infinite choice.
Being part of an infinite unfolding has both ups and downs. While this is pretty easily explained since we can’t have up without down, most of us are not interested in experiencing the downs, right? We all want up, all the time.
Knowing we are part of an infinite choosing is key to unlocking the peace which is already running around free and happy. An individual’s experience of being held away from happiness requires a mindset of separation from good, from inclusion and love. When we feel left out or unappreciated, that can only happen with our agreement. Typically we have these experiences in our thoughts much more than they actually appear in the world. Who hasn’t been surrounded by beauty which they missed because their attention was on a comment someone made about them?
Up needs down, right needs left, right needs wrong. This balanced experience in which we move and percolate is rich with choice. When our choice is to see a perfect world which balances through opposites, there is infinite room for anything that appears, even when it is painful or disconcerting for us. Pain brings with it the offering of release from pain. When we feel pain we look for release from the pain. They are part of the same perfect unfolding. Being the perceiver of their co-existence as a necessary part of life, but not all of it, offers us the doorway to the already unfolding beauty.
When you find yourself seeing and feeling and knowing only gloom, doom, darkness, your perspective is limited. All the time we re-run the horrible through our bodies, we remain part of a love that is taking form through both ease and difficulty. How broadly we choose to “know” is up to us.
Knowing, remembering our center as Infinite love that allows itself to appear as pain and pleasure is an immediate release from feeling limited to pain and darkness. With the understanding of Love as your source, your perspective immediately expands, opening to accept how that Truth is happening now. Right here, right now, there is always a dichotomous experience. You are coming and going, arriving and leaving, enjoying and UH-OH!!!
The most expansive understanding of any experience—-is the most balanced, powerful, inclusive. Here’s the pill most of us are unwilling to accept. Life means both light and dark. When we accept and swallow that pill, we resume complete understanding, feel the balance, and recognize we have a choice at all times. If the radio or screen feels bad moving through your awareness, you can turn it off or change the channel. You are also equipped to make the same choice with your thoughts and feelings.
How? How can I get away from my thoughts and feelings? They seem to be waiting everywhere I am. I feel trapped.
A simple breathing exercise: Notice you are breathing, and notice when you breathe in and when you breathe out. You can do that now.
You’ve already changed the channel a bit. If you’d like to find something more to your liking, let your self choose a word to breathe into your body and out into the world. Kindness for example. Breathing that word in and out, watching and riding the breath brings us immediately back to the experience of this moment.
