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.

Human Relationships

Recent (world wide) events have allowed me to observe human behavior in the raw. I’ve seen the correlation between events and peoples’ reactions to them. I’ve also seen very clearly that all is in relationship with each other. Relationships – that is a very loaded word. It holds so much information, good and bad, depending on anyone person’s experiences with other people. Personally, relationships and especially the romantic variety have been somewhat of a mystery to me. After many years of experiences and observations,  I’ve seen a common denominator in all human relationships and now, I feel that I may be hitting upon an underlying truth that could turn out to be just be one of those gems, a universal truth, a truth that holds true, whether one believes in it or not.

As I understand it, it’s all about energy currents. All of life in fact is about energy currents and how they are in relationship with each other. The universal law of attraction says that that which is like is drawn unto itself. This is a universal law. It is true for the smallest particles as well as the largest celestial bodies in our universe and probably in multiverses as well, although that is beyond my scope of personal experience. In the subject of human relationships, this law brings people together that have something in common, people who vibrate in a close enough frequency for the automatic attraction to happen. Love filled people will find other love filled people for example. Whatever we focus on is what we draw into our experience. I have experienced this consciously for years, and to me at least, it is true. I have seen it around me as well, and I think it actually is true for anyone.

So we meet – say it’s the romantic kind of relationship that we observe here. One person is drawn to another. The gender and orientation are a match (in whichever diverse expression matters not and ought not to be judged). Both look at each other and at the very least like what they see. Perhaps it’s instant love. Perhaps it takes a bit longer to yield to the magic of the source perspective. Yes, source perspective is what happens when we “fall in love” with another being. We observe that person through the eyes of source and source always loves unconditionally. So we love, and usually in the beginning at least, get a positive response back. (Let’s for a moment assume, that the experience of falling in love is mutual, shall we?) – Both people decide to embark on the path of romantic love and the relationship becomes conscious (it was always there, just nobody was aware of it before they met or agreed to allow love to flow.) In the ideal scenario, this blissful period (the honeymoon phase) lasts up to 2-3 years, sometimes even longer and I’ll get to that, but often just a few months before things become more difficult. Issues tend to show up. Things that didn’t bother either of the couple suddenly begin to matter and are being observed and most importantly verbally complained about. Soon enough, there are problems, quarrels, fights even and only one thing is clear, the honeymoon phase is over and, how it is often termed, “the real work begins”.

I have of course simplified things a bit here, but the standard development of a romantic relationship unfolds like that or similar. It depends on the awareness levels of the couple how they deal with their issues and what can be solved and agreed upon etc. So what happened to the honeymoon phase? To those romantic moments of bliss and connectedness? Are they forever lost? Does one have to just “get real”, come down to Earth and work through the stuff? Most professionals in the counseling field would probably see it that way.  I do not. I see a pattern that is most common in such a relationship scenario. I see that there was a current that brought both together, meaning, both people ran a current that was similar. Most often it was a current of not really loving themselves but wanting and being able to love another.

In the beginning, they gazed upon each other and bucked that current, perhaps simply because they were glad to have found a suitable mate. They bucked the current of their partner’s inability to love him or herself and loved him or her despite that forbidding current. It’s what source does – they did indeed look upon the partner through the eyes of source and achieved something incredibly difficult to maintain for a while.

The reason they could not maintain this bucking of that perpetual current of lack of self-love is simple. Human beings are not meant to buck each others’ currents forever, like source does. It’s near impossible unless one is in such perpetual alignment with source that source is who is acting through the human body (or in other words a living saint). Humans are actually meant to mirror each other, to reflect and act out what the currents of those around them are.  Now imagine! This couple – they bucked each other’s current of lack of self-love successfully for months, or even years. They shored up that lack for each other and the lack was not (always) felt. They filled the other’s heart with source love, which is nice, but it is also a classic scenario of co-dependence that has developed through this. The result is that one partner cannot live without the other’s love, and vice versa, for then one would fall back on the lack of self-love and that would hurt. So there’s a number of “co-ing” behaviors that develop around this pattern, just to uphold this energy pattern of co-dependency. This can become very stressful and draining over time. That’s because it is not how things are meant to be here in this human adventure. We are meant to show each other what currents are being offered to the world. (Yes, even the ugly bits).  It is a far greater act of love to show an unadultered current to a partner than to buck a current that is offered. Only by showing the true nature of an offered current, is the other able to see and grow through it to a greater point of awareness and ultimately independent self-love. The work that has to happen in this relationship scenario is one of training oneself into loving every little aspect of oneself and to integrate self-love. However, both partners would have to do that in order to remain attracted to each other, or the vibrations would be very different and the law that brings people together will seek other matches that are more harmonious.

Let’s assume for a moment that there is a couple who as individuals have found self-love and are offering that current to the world. Then let’s also assume that their interests and desires are a match and hence they meet. Their relationship will begin with a huge glow of the amplified energy of both hearts that join in love that is already flowing individually. Love that is not born from a sense of need, but from a sense of fulfillment within each of the partners individually. This kind of love can amplify and dance together with incredible intensity. Following the natural movement of love energy, only expansion is possible with this joining of open self-love filled hearts, as they share personal and source love in their relationship. What’s better still, neither of them has to buck the other’s current even for a moment, they can both reflect the self-love back to their partner and be in harmony with their human purpose of being a mirror for each other. Such love will last for a lifetime and beyond. It is effortless and all problems and issues that may arise will be solved through that focus of self-love and open hearts. There will be loads of fun moments, shared humor and perhaps long periods of silence, during which in mutual understanding, there is nothing to say, but only love to feel.

Some people meet in the first circumstances and through the bucking of the non-self-love current are inspired to find self love. Those are the ones where it may be blissful, then wobble but lead to a more aware form of self-love within each partner, thereby untangling the co-dependent nature of their relationship and the experience of such an untanglement will always be a sense of incredible relief and appreciation for each other to have been an invaluable catalyst in the growth journey.

Be it as it may – all scenarios (and there are definitely variations I have not mentioned here) are valid. None are better than the other. All are an experience worthy of having gone through. Ultimately, it all depends what an individual desires for their relationship(s). That sets the tone for the unfolding of the experience. Whether relationships are romantic in nature, or simply human interactions, one thing is certain. When we are independently free and self-sustaining with our need for love, we will as human race evolve into a more peaceful society, in which the basis for mirroring that which we have evolved into is love and not war.

This brings me back to the current worldwide events of war, terror, fear, and more. These are but a reflection of the currents we offer to the world and each other. Sure, there is potential for love and sure, many reports speak of this love for their next “neighbor”. However, does it not suggest to love the neighbor like we love ourselves? – that part gets forgotten too often in my opinion. True change in the world happens within, for when change comes in form of a changed current that we offer to the world, the reflection thereof will naturally be different – for that is how it works.

In short, if I want to experience love, I must love myself. If I want to experience peace, I must be at peace with myself. Humanity has been at war for a very long time and it did not stop with the end of WWII by the way. We humans are at war within our hearts. The perpetual focus and need to share what bothers us is still too strong. The focus on what is good is unpracticed as of yet, but more and more, I see people tired of complaining and pointing to the obvious negative. Instead of asking, “what would be the worst that could happen?”, which comes so easily to our minds, we can train ourselves to ask instead: “what would be the best that could happen?” – and to me, the best would be a world filled with peaceful, self-loving individuals that strive to learn, and evolve in the arts, science, and technologies for the sheer joy of evolving, which would eliminate any and all competition but support each other’s dreams to the full extent by simply being natural reflectors for each other. I may not live to see this kind of humanity in this body, but one day, I trust it will become reality.

 

 

On the Subject of Prayer

The heinous events lately here as well as in other parts of the world, and I mean lately in a very loose sort of way, always seem to initiate a cry to pray for…(insert whatever it is we’re supposed to be praying for).  There are even voices that claim to know that the world should stop praying and that we better fix our own problems (with bombs perhaps?). I get that prayer in the traditional sense always seems to come from a place of feeling inferior, overwhelmed maybe, and seeking outside help. That may be so for many still. It surely appears that prayer has kind of fallen out of favor for many. It’s just not a “thing” anymore. This may have to do with many turning away from religion, as prayer is closely associated with a faith. (Funny how literally in every faith there’s prayer somewhere though).

In my belief system, and yes, that’s all it really is, just how I managed to line up my beliefs into a seeming structure of order, prayer is essential; as is meditation. Prayer would be talking, meditation listening – but who am I talking to, who am I listening to? In my belief, I talk and listen to source. Source is the non-physical, greater part from whence a “spark” came to incarnate in my body. That is the connection to the powers that I believe are greater than those of the physical world. Now when a disaster strikes, I may pray harder, with more urgency perhaps – this comes naturally for me, as I feel more and more the connectedness with all other people who are grieving and suffering. Energetically, prayer has a very direct way of affecting everything. The contrast of the disaster creates immediately the improved version, e.g. a peaceful world. Source then becomes that version and people lagging a bit (or a lot) behind, turn their attention to the contrast situation that has brought about the new creation, therefore finding themselves feeling bad, which indicates a state of misalignment. Now add prayer to the mix – yes, prayer will add fuel to the new creation and hence, source always being the giver of what has been asked, ups the ante and sends out the new creation energy pattern with increased intensity.

Usually, as a human being, I’m somewhat in resistance at all times. (Resistance to experiencing source energy unhindered) Sometimes more, sometimes less. That level of resistance exists whether source has upped the ante and sends out massive new energy waves, or not. When source answers the prayers energetically with this increase of energetic intensity, (because prayers really do get answered) I have the same level of resistance with more energy bouncing against that and I feel the effects by feeling pretty lousy. The mind wants to make sense of it and blames the heinous contrast events that gave rise to it all in the first place, which creates further misalignment. It takes us people a while to line up with such immediate large scale new creations, but it would be good to focus on what we want instead and pray that we can align swiftly, rather than ask for more source energy based on the idea that some other-worldly God-figure may swoop down and fix it all for us … well, in a way it’s happening that way, just we (humanity) are the extensions of source here on Earth. We are actually praying to ourselves if that makes any sense at all.

So, yes, always pray, meditate, it’s the communication between you and source. It’s vital for an aligned lifestyle. Do not listen to those who say to stop praying, for prayer is that intimate re-connection with who we really are and to stop that would be counter-intuitive in my opinion. I feel that the contrasting events that give rise to the call for prayer is actually one of the positive aspects, if I may say it that way (no offense intended anywhere). People waking up to prayer is important, for by turning away from religion, they have also turned away from prayer and a (re)turn to prayer is a good thing and should never stop.

Prayer done right, connects with source and will open one’s heart. There may be tears of release flowing, as we reconnect with source in a conscious manner, that is not a sadness, but a sense of relief that one is well under way to find that connection many of us so crave.

 

 

My Favorite Life

 

In order to experience the life you always wanted, the one you decided you could love, you must first love life itself.

Creating Change

It is of course allowed to stay in the dream of your own experience, even if you are not happy with it. This is but a reminder, that the energies on Earth have reached frequencies where change and even the new creation of a totally different reality is almost instantaneous. It might be time to take advantage of this and stop re-creating that which does not bring happiness. The decision for change lies with every individual. Thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and patterns are the building blocks for the many wonderful creations. It’s that easy!

 

 

Remembering

The most important primary relationship is that with your source; from that, everything else flows.

It’s easy to pop out a statement like this. It may ring true to you, but still, what does it really mean; and most of all, how does one get there?

So many posts on my blog have spoken of alignment. Alignment with source. That is the relationship with source. Alignment with source means first of all to accept that there is a greater non-physical part of who you are in human form. It seems silly and simple to some, but it is a first step. Even if I believe this already, it is helpful to emphasize this thought. Some call source God, some call source Higher Self, others still call source Oneness, or Consciousness. I am sure there are many other names you could either come up with or read somewhere. It matters not. You can call source by any name that is pleasing to you and it may help to just have a name that resonates with you to make this relationship more practical. How about “Fred”? “Lou”? “Hailey”? “Abby”?.. you pick! What really matters is to remember that essential feeling of connectedness that comes along with remembering that we are more than our human form. It is as if the world expanded. It is as if you mattered more than you thought you could. (and that point is certainly true).

To practice this allowing of being greater than our human form, our mind, our emotions, our physical abilities etc, means to open the door for this non-physical part of ours to enter the playing field of humanity. Usually, once that door has been cracked open even a little bit, the feeling of relief is huge, since it takes a lot of energetic power to keep that particular door closed. You can call this moment “awakening”, but that presupposes you were asleep before. I call it “remembering”, which means you simply forgot and that is the design on Earth. The veil of forgetfulness is this “thing”, this energetic patterning that keeps most humans in the illusion of separation from their non-physical part. If you recognize that you once knew, but keep forgetting, don’t fret, this forgetting part is not your (wrong)doing. It just means that your interactions with the veil of forgetfulness are pronounced. For some, this veil is necessary for the perfect unfolding of their experience of limitation, for in non-physical we are unlimited. For others, this veil just seems to be a nuisance, a bother. Usually, it is those who have already remembered a bit of who they are and want to pursue the path of discovering ever greater awareness. For them, this veil of forgetfulness can be perceived as a hinderance.

As with any resistance, take heart and accept that the “obstacle” is there. Accept and allow, for it is there anyway. Then intend and put the focus on your desire to have the veil lift gently and in increments that are in perfect harmony with the path you are on. Then go back to the nurturing of your primary relationship by consciously reaching out to your source every day at least once. Observe the changes in your life’s experiences. They may be subtle, but they are there. Every day there are changes. Look upon the changes if you desire change and you will experience more change than you can ever hope for.

 

 

Primary Relationship

 

The most important primary relationship is that with your source; from that, everything else flows.

Well Being

All things, every little detail here on Earth, are a reflection of well being, for even in the contrast of seeming absence of well being resides the promise of well being, and the expansion into even greater well being.

What followed from this reminder was an intense desire to practice. Put the mental knowledge into a tangible experience. That desire felt so good, it must have been well aligned with my source point’s desire. To feel that good is to align with source. To align with source is to leave behind the dichotomies of polarity; or better said, put the notion of division a bit out of focus. The new focus is on well being. Well being is the order of the universe. Well being prevails. Consensus reality says differently. Mass consciousness is hooked on the bad news and the gory horrors of “negative” earthly experiences. That current prevails and is palpable to me, as I focus on well being. It offers itself at the core of my intentions as the one thing to practice with and so I do. Even the seemingly negative currents of mass consciousness are well being, the promise of greater well being anyway. The noticing of well being all around is becoming a fun training of the mind and it gets more playful the longer I keep at it. The physical experience and the knowledge of the non-physical well being that never wavers are beginning to get fuzzy around the edges and merge together into one big pool of wellness. All is well, this pool shouts at me whenever I steer my focus there. All is well eternally.
