Quantum physics tells us that we CREATE our life...that what we focus on manifests itself for us. So, as creators, it is imperative that we know the foundation from which we are creating.
Are we creating from old subconscious energy that is stuck...mired in unhealed pain, past hurts, unresolved issues? Have these become our default engine? Are we repeating patterns that have clearly not served us well...and yet falling back on the familiar (and, in an ironic twist, the comfortable)?
THIS may be the reason why it is so very hard to change habits and so annoying that we can't. The old "stuff" is driving our behavior and it's been chauffeuring us around for a long time. And we don't like the destination we are delivered to. It's not what we want, but it is what we get...
we make a conscious, fully committed decision to RELEASE the hurts...the pain...the angst...we have been carrying. At the time these injuries occurred, we were unable to transcend them...that's why they are still here. But now, as we learn more, we can CHOOSE to free ourselves from the layers of suffering. What felt to us like insult and injury can now be recognized as life journey decisions of others that had NOTHING to do with us (though our ego would argue otherwise). Their behavior was all about them...their conditioning, their influences, their pain. But, because we, too, were life journeying and filled with our own ego struggles, it seemed to be coming directly AT us.
And the cosmic plan becomes even more fascinating. Although what people do is truly about them, paradoxically, their actions function FOR us.
As we grow spiritually, we begin to sense the soul view of how life operates to bring us circumstances and people who will trigger our Insecurities and, thereby, provide us with the perfect opportunity to recognize our own issues and honor them as gifts to help us grow.
It seems the very best way to advance spiritually is to intentionally release the layers of old conditioning that have caused our reactions through the soul knowledge that all things in the universe operate FOR US. As Reverend Linda DeCoff says, when we receive the message through our intention (the higher consciousness awareness that we truly want to learn through any situation), the baggage we have been carrying around disappears.
Once we have released our old conditioning through our awareness of the value of the lesson, we are free to create our lives not from the shackles of the past, but rather IN
THIS MOMENT as a young child looks at life with freshness and curiosity and wonder. This is the way we enter our earth life...with purity and simplicity...untainted by the values of others and trusting always in what feels right to us.
Through our dedication to gaining self-knowledge we are FREE
to make choices and decisions based on what feels "wonderful" (little child wonderful) to us NOW...not because we are in pain..not to "get back" at someone we feel has hurt us...and not to comfort or console ourselves during a dark or difficult moment.
The beauty of the CHILD emerges...the child who so unselfconsciously recognizes love in each moment and appreciates so gratefully each gift of the universe...and it is this awesome, precious "child" who leads us to the person we want to be.
