A problem often cannot be solved at the level or consciousness of the problem itself. The mind will keep spinning and the walls will remain.
But open yourself to more and realize that you can create a new structure or paradigm for your life. One that will present new limits and issues.
And the exploration will continue from there.
But ask yourself…
Are you here to solve problems?
Or, are you here for more?
An example from my own life would be this:
Recently I have been feeling like I am stagnant with my job. I have looked for jobs of interest and nothing has happened yet. So instead of ‘trying harder’ and getting frustrated, I am going on vacation to Jamaica!
Shift your perspective and energy and allow the rest to fall into place. That is my approach to things, basically.
This bird is an expression of the infinite.
Think about that for a moment.
Now, how do you see yourself?
The energy of choice is this:
That when a choice is made there will be manifestation.
It may not happen immediately but it will. There is that clarity and movement into definition.
Think of it this way:
A man walks into a pub and orders a pint. The beer is then poured and set on the counter for the man. Observe the space in time between when the man chose to go to the pub and the time the beer is in his grasp. There is the process of creation. But just because the beer did not manifest immediately when the thought arose does not mean that the physical manifestation was not coming.
Observe how the man chose to put himself in a place or environment where his choice would manifest. Notice he did not walk into a video store. He walked into a pub. Notice he did not pour the pint himself or brew the beer or grow the hops or direct the bartender on how to pour the beer. The man did not talk about his choice or go through a process of “should I…” or “shouldn’t I….” There was no need to. No need to control things.
He made his choice, part of which was to be part of the movement or allowing the movement of the universe to bring to him what he wanted. And it was allowed. If he did not accept and allow the beer into his life it would not be there.
This applies to things big and small in our lives.
What choices are you making?
What choices are you not making or very slowly making by going through a delay of actually choosing with a process of justification?
Every time I have ever tried to control my existence
it has hurt me.
So, I let go of how I think things should go.
And relax and breathe and open
to more possibilities and choices.
I let go
so that I can allow more.
When asked what his secret to longevity is, 145-year old Mbah Gotho from Indonesia simply mentions “patience”.
Patience is a quality that is similar to ‘allowance’ and I like the idea of living life not resisting everything or anything that comes up but simply opening ourselves to a state that is so encompassing that all is allowed. (All possible choices)
Easier said than done, sure. But at that point what is impossible?
Humanity is not even at the infancy stage in what it will aspire to and ultimately achieve.
Of course there are a few around who are much older than Mr. Gotho but that is not important.
The question is: how long do you want to live?
