I love binge watching TV shows on Netflix and Amazon.
Many of these shows have eight or more seasons, so I can really sink my teeth into them. But when I get to the series finale, there’s this feeling in the pit of my stomach. I don’t want to watch that last episode. Because that’ll be it! Show over. How sad.
I’m talking about comedies, dramas and everything in between. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is I have invested way too much in the story. I have become disturbingly close to the cast of characters. They could be miscreants, boorish, socially awkward. Relationship inept. But I have grown to like them with all of their human ‘imperfections.’ There’s a certain predictability and reliability about them and the show in general: the chemistry among the various actors, the plot and subplots. And yes, I do enjoy the drama. Of course there’s drama. Without it, wouldn’t it be kind of boring? You know there’s got to be some kind of challenge to overcome or resolve. But I do like a happy ending. So when it gets down to the last episode…sometimes I’m brave enough to watch it, but more often than not I will just start watching the series again from the beginning. Right back to season one we go.
That works for a while, but it does get a little tedious, having watched some shows three, four, even five times already. In my defense, there aren’t many…..scratch that….there aren’t any TV shows that depict the awakening that we on the forefront are going through, but I work with what’s available.
ARE WE DONE WITH RE-RUNS?
I know you’re waiting for the analogy, so here it is:
Maybe one of the reasons we delay our ascension is because we don’t want to face that final episode. Our last lifetime, at least in this particular story…. the story of duality. As painful as it was. So it makes sense that we would want to just keep watching our lives over and over and, even though it gets kind of boring, (Already watched that episode of my life a few hundred times!!) at least we don’t have to face the inevitable ‘good-bye.’ ‘so long.’ ‘asta la vista.’ ‘been good to know ya.’
Because if you think about it, when we really go deep enough and fully allow our light body along with our soul, our already ascended self into these bodies, we probably will want to move on to new projects. We will begin to feel pulled into that dynamic, expansive, eternal self, and that’s a pretty tough one to turn our back on. Something tells me that once we reach that point we will want to leave pretty quickly. It’s like someone who has a near death experience and is tempted to ‘go to the light.’ Once they get that far, there is a tendency to not want to come back to such a dense environment.
We might look back at our life, and the rest of the planet, and say, “Well, I had a good run. See ya on the flip side.” So it’s understandable that we would delay that time as much as we can. After all, haven’t we invested pretty heavily in our time here?
ONCE AGAIN, ART IMITATING LIFE
Our numerous lifetimes are like a really long running TV series….they all have remained pretty consistently within the formula of duality. New lifetime, new family and friends, or are they? Maybe your mother in this lifetime was your sister in the last one. Or you marry in this lifetime someone you were just friends with in the last one. Things may seem different, but let’s not mistake variety for real change.
So over time, our ‘TV Show’ gets kind of boring. Each lifetime becomes an attempt to try switching to a different show, and initially it peaks our interest, but soon it becomes just another story of people playing victim. And even if they seem to overcome the hurdles and challenges, it’s from sheer determination, pushing against something or someone, and it almost always seems to be a conflict coming from the outside…whether it’s about unrequited love, financial ruin, or failing health. It could be fighting the ‘bad guys’ or the lead role could be someone who is an anti-hero themselves.
At the end of the day, it’s really just a galactic story being played out over and over again.
And resolution is ultimately from an outside entity or ‘force’ that rescues them. Whether it’s in the form of a lover, a friend, an organization, a super-hero, a guardian angel, or ‘god.’
So, new series, new lifetime, same old story. It’s safer to stay within the confines of a tried and true formula that works…..until it doesn’t!
And that’s when you invited Spirit to come into your life. You couldn’t stand watching those re-runs a moment longer! And then of course all hell broke loose. Your writers quit, your acting crew committed mutiny. Your ratings began to drop, and cancellation of your old ‘show’ was imminent.
You were straying way too far from the original formula…but you knew that the old story just wasn’t cutting it anymore…it just wasn’t working for you. It began to feel like a prison, because the damned studio wouldn’t let you out of your contract! So something had to give. You had to find a way to bust open that old script once and for all. That old galactic story had to be resolved one way or another. You could not wait one more lifetime. It was now or never!!!
So…fast forward… and here you are, with a tabula rasa called your series finale. Whether you will infuse it with drama, or with joy, is all on you. And after you write that last episode is there a risk of you high-tailing it out of here? Yep there is. Are you OK with that? One thing is sure. You will have some amazing stories to tell your friends ‘back home.’
Here’s a fun movie trailer on ascension:
