Spiritually engaged people still find a contradiction between discovering the Matrix and their Spirituality. Why is that so? Did they forget how they got it?
The focus point of any free spirituality has always been an awakening. And I am not advocating that one awakening is better than another, its spiritual elitism and the world has seen enough of that.
Maybe you awoke from atheism to “happy-go-lucky-with- the-elves”, or you did the ashram in India routine, maybe your starved yourself physically and spiritually in hope of early ascension and beating others to it or disengaged distorted Matrix Religion. Be very vigilant not to trade one box of denial for another…
We are, as every living thing on this planet on a journey. I know it´s a cliché, but sometimes-even clichés offers the truth, if they are fully understood. There are enough in this world with salvation in the right hand and damnation in the other. So do what pleases your soul. Bring it together, it was separated and now there’s a hunger and need to: Collect and Assemble.
Maybe the old belief system was a kind of auto system, where the soul went on autopilot GPS-coordinates and the term Soul, isn’t the right term, its more an Ego thing inherited through conditioning.
The soul needs your heart in it. The Ego doesn’t.
Maybe we feel trapped, without the gift of: True discovery.
It´s our right to fight our way out because we did not choose it.
When that emotion of entrapment finds us like an inner tidal wave we start to rebel. Starting out on our spiritual quest.
That has consequences: we will get socially banned, people will start to punish us, bad talk us and the spiritual control mechanism will show its face. No matter what we may turn to. It seems to be a challenge looking for ways to connect to: The Divine; also within.
Interpretation of: “The Divine” comes in many forms. There´s divinity in a bug’s life and in a cornfield and in a church and in nature, its everywhere. And we are all embodiments of: The Divine. The problem is when somebody hijacks it and holds it for ransom.
Spiritual freedom is not granted, we will have to fight for it.
The journey often starts with a spark ignited from the feeling of emptiness or the feeling that something is missing, which drives us into the mystery of spirituality. Something has to ignite it. The path is beautiful, full of wonders and offers a state of “Being Self“, instead of: “Being Me”.
We often forget that the emotion of: “Being Self “ comes before the feeling of: “Unity“. Often we seem to get stuck there with some confusion regarding: is spiritual development an Ego issue? Am I being selfish here? To be frank: Yes, but “You” comes first. Find yourself first. It´s okay.
The inner tide hopefully draws us deeper than that.
For so many, this journey plays out on a pathway with very few allies. They will come, when we reach the: “Get sober – but stay cosmic point”. People of the same inner vibrational states attract each other and become the emotional strongholds of a heart and mind once in turmoil. Good. Until the next tidal wave manifests itself. As it should.
This mechanism is very much on the table now in these so troubled times.
People are removing the shackles and the matrix of externally controlled belief systems and discovering their own path, what ever that way is! We found truth and we found out, that we were not alone. And hopefully that truth will continue evolving, bringing us even closer to the source code of the mystery.
We awoke as we do many times. When we awake, we see the world with new eyes. For every awakening we have another reality replacing the one we just left behind. Lovely: A shift.
And a crucial point here is: Should we leave the world alone, participate in the turning away, or take that journey too?
It´s a spiritual vortex point and this planet is not a waiting room.
So frankly I don’t like the belief system that says: “I won’t get my spiritual hands in the muddy waters of the world as we know it” or: ” That’s bad for me, the world will judge me once again”.
Sorry, the world already does that! No matter what you belief.
“It´s negative, they attack the powers that be and pinpoints its contradictions and lies“.
So did you. But that was when you wanted your spiritual freedom. Or another job, left a partner, found a new. Or what ever. Same mechanism.
The path is the same as the spiritual one, exactly the same. It becomes spiritual along the way, if it wasn’t from the start, since it will engage us more and more on a soul level as we find our way through life.
And we sure will find ourselves between a rock and a hard place but: That can be very transforming, if we know exactly that it is where we are. If we don’t we just feel trapped. And we know that! Because we feel it. We feel it so much that we become allergic to entrapment by default. It is when we don´t know what traps us; it really hurts.
We survived the first rounds. We will certainly survive the next of: Bringing together what is separated: A truly free spirituality radiating into a truly free society.
The only real obstacle here is the sniper in our brain, that tells us: We can’t do this.
Of course we can do this.
This world offers a lot of exiting travels. The most exotic is very short: From the head to the heart. Yet so difficult.
The heart would hold no snipers…
The last thing we need here are the advertisement of how ‘awake’ one is and how good one is ‘setting the path for future generations’ – it is still ego showing of and its blowing out of proportion. Pathways have a way of changing…
One’s work will speak for itself.
When awake and being in the heart such proclamations of grandeur are not that interesting.
The stealth awakening; mundane and spiritual is both a very silent affair and it is high impact, but it doesn’t speak much of one self. It is both loud and neutrally informative in respect of: ‘There are multiple paths to awakening and the joy of conquering that 30 cm inner Camino.’
Loud: Because that’s the highly transformative whisper of truth that roars through every soul that responds to it.
Silent: Because that is the way of the Heart.
