Life After Awakening

These days, I notice that more and more people speak of waking up to their true nature as conscious creator beings. As with everything, there are so many paths that can lead to such an awakening. They are all glorious in their own right and certainly fit an individual’s belief system perfectly, or it would not have yielded the wonderful result of awakening. I found that becoming more and more aware is a gradual process however. Sometimes, the human mind thinks to suggest that since you’ve woken up to who you really are (once or twice), everything must now be fine and dandy and “done”. In my belief system, this does not hold quite true for me. Instead, I found that everything became a point of departure, a point from which I was lead to where I am today. I understand that every moment offers a plethora of choices that I not only can make consciously, but actually am repeatedly called to make consciously. If I choose (unconsciously/automatically) by default, it is most often the mainstream, mass consciousness way of thinking that dictates these choices.

Before any strand in my own belief system is set to a new default, I am called to choose consciously, over and over again, things that I prefer, things that make me feel good and make choices that feel “on” to me. If I choose to let things slip and dwell again in the illusions of mass consciousness belief systems, I will easily get drawn into that old default. This happens until my new personal defaults are practiced enough so that they anchor in, which is a distinct feeling for me. After that happens, I can become a bit less vigilant around the new default setting. This is nothing other than “a belief is a thought you keep thinking” (until it becomes so practiced that you believe it).

Waking up to become a fully conscious, aware traveler on your path is not a one time shot. In my experience, it takes a lot of repetition and a keen desire to stay awake and not go back to hide behind the veil of forgetfulness, which alas is also a very strong belief of mass consciousness that has the power to pull you again into the state of unconscious slumber. The good part is however, if you have awakened once, the path is easier to find and the process of oscillating between awake and falling into the more practiced, unconscious, automatic way of life is the very vehicle, that will firm up your path to consciousness. At first, it’s just a few footsteps in the grassy field of the undiscovered territory. Over time, it will widen to a single file footpath, then as you travel this path over and over, it will become a comfortable, known little road for you to follow into conscious living. With practice, the sometimes overwhelming pull from mass consciousness belief will lessen and the time spent in conscious living will be greater than the time you spend revisiting the old paradigm until the new pattern of waking becomes the default for you and will be anchored into your personal belief system.

 

Racism

For years now I have kept my blog posts free of politics. Do not fear, this one will also be kept free of politics, even if the title potentially suggests otherwise. It seems to me that humanity has a chance these days to look at some core beliefs about race. From my point of view, these core beliefs about race are not only intimately linked to the color of one’s skin, or other physical features, but have a distinct patterning that affects an individual’s identity.

The reasons why any point of source would choose to incarnate in one particular physical expression over another are many. In essence it is always this: The chosen physical “look” matches 100% that which a source point has intended to experience. Period. It’s that simple. It’s perfection. 

Racism is this trend that has been going on within humanity for a great number of years, thousands of years actually. There have been many cries for it to stop. The creation of a humanity who can peacefully co-exist in all facets of diversity has already happened in non-physical. It is possible to attract the changes that will ultimately allow this magnificent creation of such a humanity into physical expression. Any form of outward action (unless that makes you deliriously happy, then it’s your calling to jump into action) will only fuel racism, for racism begins within. 

I am sorely aware, that this lifetime in this caucasian body doesn’t really give me much entitlement to even speak about racism, since it’s the white folks who have perpetrated so many racial “no-no-s”. It is interesting to note that my cell information of “caucasian” tells me that I am guilty of said perpetrated atrocities, even if my personal beliefs only speak of humans, regardless of skin color or otherwise distinguishing features. Yes, being in a caucasian body brings the filter of being guilty. That’s the moment where racism starts – right there. That’s where I am noticing a difference between those who are not of caucasian cell information vs. myself. This negative emotional feedback (in my case guilt) is a clear indication that the identification with “caucasian” holds a belief pattern that is a misalignment with source frequency. Source does not identify with skin color but only rejoices in diversity. 

I look at racial patterning as something we come into an incarnation with. It doesn’t matter what our personal beliefs are, the cells hold a racial pattern that speaks of ancient experiences that have been going on for thousands of years. Depending on the diversity of your ancestry, there are numerous patterns that overlay and form a specific racial filter through which you can either simply experience your life (like a preset), or you can choose to evolve beyond it by consciously changing your own racial beliefs and implement those to form a different filter through which you experience your life. 

You may wonder whether it is possible to affect the cellular memory by changing a belief pattern and I can easily confirm that you can. A belief is a thought you keep thinking. That which you look at is what registers as a thought. If you look at the racial issues that are being experienced in any part of the world, you will look at racism. If you look at racism, your own pattern of racism (yes we all have them still) will come to the fore. When that happens, and you become conscious of your racial patterning, relax for a moment. Relax into the presence of those patterns. They are an information on the cellular level that you have come into this body with. There is no need to fight them. In fact, if you want to see racism gone from humanity, start by focusing on loving acceptance of your own inner racial patterning. No matter whether that has the information of “victim” or “perpetrator” – it really doesn’t matter what the race is, or how you experience the patterning. What really matters is that you can find acceptance, and then self-love of that racial patterning by looking at yourself in a loving and accepting manner often (very often)… 

If you do this practice often enough, and moving into acceptance rather than staying in racism seems to be a worthy cause to me, such acceptance becomes a pattern of its own. Then you are indeed a (r)evolutionary genius who is contributing to general acceptance of race. I see the potential that if many many (did I say many!) people would busy themselves with such acceptance, racism will cease to be an experience on this planet. A goal that fills me with such joy that I cannot help but ask you all to give this some thought, and perhaps find acceptance of your own racial self, no matter the color, no matter the many ancestral points of origin. Ultimately, it’s all the same, just in many different facets that bring such diverse experiences. A joy to look at really!

The Power of Beliefs

There is a belief that holds steadfast and is anchored within mass consciousness. That means, it is one of the most commonly held beliefs that affect us all. It seems to me that it is difficult to believe something else, while this one is offering still such a very strong current for all of humanity. The belief I am talking about is the one that creates the reality of having to work through things, overcome adversity and apply effort to do so.

Only when we have given it everything we have, only when we have thrown all our efforting that is humanly possible against the various things we categorize as adversity, do we stand a chance of redemption or a glimpse of ease. This belief is only strong because so many of us here on Earth still believe in the action journey. The action journey is the one where we see something unwanted and thus begin to work hard in our outer environment to improve the situation. (Mind you, the same action journey applies to doing your “inner work” while gaining more spiritual awareness.) The action journey is where it’s at for most people, for without pain no gain (or so the belief confirms) – without hard labor, no fruit. We all want the rewards. We all want to feel good. I know no one who desires to feel bad. I know a great many from all walks of life, of many possible belief systems, who work hard, and I mean HARD, to “get there” (there being whatever goal they have set for themselves).

Even while writing this up, I’m feeling the drudgery, the exhaustion, the pain, the sheer insurmountable heaps of “issues” that supposedly need to be overcome here on Earth. A task that even the hardiest workers among us cannot possibly undertake by the action journey alone.

What other possibilities are there instead? – I am called to write about this belief in “hard work”. I am called to say that it is this very belief that makes the experience so difficult. It is this belief of “hard work for results” that delivers the reality of all the adversity we experience, to give us ample opportunity to work hard (to confirm the belief through experiencing this reality).  It is simple: for as long as you believe in this concept, you will experience this concept. I have believed in it, I have experienced it. I have also found it very difficult to go against the massive current of humanity’s belief in it to learn to believe otherwise, until I realized that my difficulties had the very same belief pattern (it takes hard work to overcome adversity) at its foundation. It does not matter what change you are aiming for in your life. It can be change on the physical, emotional, mental, or even spiritual plane of experience. Even those who have decided to aim for fantastically high vibrations often still adhere to this old fashioned belief and “work hard” at attaining their goals.

This moment is as good as any to ditch that old belief! Beware, that it isn’t hard work! – It really is not! –  A belief is a thought you keep thinking. Think a thought of ease long enough and you will find happy feelings to start with, and eventually the flow of ease in and throughout all of your experiences will begin to show up. I feel compelled to say that it is time to stop overcoming, to stop working hard at our goals, to be bold and believe in ease, even if the rest of the world does not yet. Let’s be pioneers who begin unraveling the massive fabric of this belief that has become part of mass consciousness over the past few thousand years. It does not take hard work to do so – it’s easy if we laugh about it. We can find it fantastic as it really is fantastic to have brought about such stringent limitations. Make it a point to take every moment you can to consciously relax into the ease that is your natural state of being. If you still feel the need to work, then work on awareness, work on taking things with ease and acceptance, work on playing, play with it until it is work no more.
