Puzzle Pieces

psd-jigsaw-puzzle

Imagine life as one immensely large image made of countless puzzle pieces. Imagine further, that this image is forever changing and is in a state of perpetual motion. The puzzle pieces keep morphing, moving, adjusting in rhythm with this image. Life – the image/experience would not be complete(able) without all the puzzle pieces.

Have you ever worked on a 2D jigsaw puzzle and found that after all the pieces had been joined into the image, there was one or a few missing? That never feels good. Have you ever tried to put a piece into a place where it looked like it ought to fit, but then it just would not? Have you ever paused to appreciate that we humans in this life are part of a much larger puzzle and each piece is uniquely suited to fit into the bigger picture? That is how I view life. Each piece of the puzzle is unique, individual and essential. Yes, some look like they are the same, but in essence they won’t fit into the spot you thought they should. Some others look like they should just not be there, they look ugly or unsuited perhaps. However, each one is immensely important to the whole, for without it, the image would have gaps. No two pieces are exactly the same. No two pieces are meant to be the same. That is the state of diversity and at the same time oneness – and yes, it does look chaotic at times (or most of the time).

Each piece can be appreciated for what it is and at least conceptually be accepted as fitting into the bigger picture in a most unique and beautiful way. I find that it is time to let go of the idea that we must be like everyone else – when in reality, no two puzzle pieces are exactly the same. It’s just not how puzzles work.

There is no Way…

Life is expansive, there are no conflicts in nature. It is only the illusion of separation that brings the contrast of conflict… We keep seeking for a solution to find the way, but there is no real way, because we already are what we are seeking to become!

A Joyride

By paying attention to your emotional state and seeking methods and ways to think of something that makes you feel happy and by doing so taking focus away from the energetic grids and constructs that pertain to your personal human belief system, you invite vibrational alignment with your source.

The experience of life on Earth then shifts from a sense of it happening to you while you are powerless and immersed within it, to understanding, that it is a mere reflection of who you are. In fact, it already is that – a reflection of who you are, of your thoughts and beliefs and emotions. The so-called negative emotions just signal that what you experience and see is the reflection of the beliefs you hold and the positive emotions signal that you are experiencing and seeing a reflection of your own source.

The choice what you wish to experience and see is always yours. To me it  takes the form of a joyride, a prospect filled with exhilarating joy to align and see and experience the source through my human eyes and body, reflected back at me through my earthly experiences.

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.

 

The New Mainstream

...”Until now, the consciousness crowd has kept themselves in the closet. The closet is full and bursting. It’s time for the consciousness crowd to come out and recognize themselves as The New Mainstream. The New Mainstream may be the latest in-crowd, but make no mistake about it. The desire for conscious awakening is not just a trendy idea. The New Mainstream is here to stay.”…

Whomever you Meet

At any new encounter, meet your family, your friends, your acquaintances without a preconceived idea. Meet them without prejudice. Meet them with an open mind and an open heart as you would meet someone you have never met before and you may be surprised to observe how different they can (and often want to) be if you offer no current as to who they were before.

Growing

The reason we are growing and expanding in our essence is not because we aren’t big enough or not good enough, not smart enough or still too ignorant, but because it simply is our true nature of being in a state of perpetual expansion. By embracing our own true state of expansiveness, without attributing to it the assumption that we were less than perfect at any time before now, we can reach a state of allowing self-love to flow. 

Working Hard

To this day, humanity holds on to the belief held by mass consciousness that promotes good work ethics. The belief holds steadfast, that only through hard work, there will be success. This belief permeates everything, even spiritual development. How often have you heard someone say: “I’m working hard on my alignment” – “if I work a bit harder at meditating, I’ll get there”…the list is endless.

The belief that there is hard work involved before we get to see results is the very thing that is experienced. In that belief structure, it is clear that only through hard work, the experience of the desired result is available. Unless you work hard, you won’t be as successful as those who do work hard, so the belief continues, and tosses out the bait of competition for those who wish to take it.

What I see when I hear the words “hard work” (yes, even when they creep into my own vocabulary from time to time) is this: We ARE the universal forces that we believe are outside of us to deliver us the realities that we experience. We all are part of that universal energy that shapes itself into everything we choose to believe. If we believe in the myth of hard work, there we have it – without hard work, no success. If we believe however in the omnipotent nature of pure positive energy, which is exactly that which we are at our core, then the idea of working hard becomes rather ridiculous (to me anyway). Really? the universe, this omnipotent force that has also been entitled “God” has to work hard ? – I don’t believe this for once second. What I do believe and with that pitch my human nature against the current of mass consciousness,is this: we are here to play, to frolic, to enjoy and to create. It’s play people! It’s nowhere near hard work, unless we decide to explore that old belief structure some more (and to do that is absolutely allowed).

Personally, I pick play over work any old day – passionate play that is. Aligned play and inspired action. With that attitude and belief, I accomplish so much more, than when I dip a toe back into the currents of old that sometimes pipe up and say: what ? you haven’t worked yet today? – When that happens, I laugh and recognize the “should” in my inner dialogue and wait until that moment passes until I find alignment, joy, and my playful nature again which is always just waiting to explore, do, accomplish, create, and enjoy – every day anew.

Full Acceptance of What Is

It is a step outside the perception of linearity to fully accept and appreciate the current experience of now. By gaining the perspective that this current now experience is as much a valid and perfect creation of your reality as any of your many experiences, you will be able to treasure it much easier and cherish it as much as the next one that will flow into your experience as your new manifestation. The current now deserves the honor, respect and recognition of being the birthplace of the new now and all subsequent nows.

Immense Joy

If we align enough with source frequency (and the degree of alignment is communicated to us by how good we feel) we begin seeing the world and all experiences through the eyes of source. From that point of perspective, even the greatest follies, the most atrocious experiences, along with all the wonderful things, begin to look different. Source sees the immense creativity that goes into creating limitations as well as expansions. It sees the incredible amount of expressed diversity that goes into each and every creation and clearly forgoes any judgment, but instead keeps a steady focus on taking immense joy in the many creative processes that can be witnessed and experienced all day, every day.
