I was binge watching a riveting TV series called Damages. Each and every character in this show is absolutely addicted to drama.
The mind has total control over them and consequently their lives become unraveled and even nightmarish.
While it has redeeming entertainment value, it is nothing short of total chaos and a treadmill of people giving in to all of their emotions.
Of course none of the characters are aware that this is happening. They are so deeply entrenched in their roles. But I couldn’t get past season two, because it started to get boring. I noticed that real depth of character and substance was replaced by shock value.
We who have awakened are going for depth over drama. Yes our human self still can get very involved in the emotions from our mind, for they are quite compelling are they not? But we also see that those emotions, whether it is fear or anger, or any other of the so-called dark emotions, are manufactured by our mind.
Before I go further, I want to remind the reader that it’s imperative to acknowledge all of the emotions. But acknowledging them doesn’t mean necessarily responding to them and making them our truth. This is what we are learning to do in this whole ascension process. We are allowing everything to be acknowledged within us. And becoming adept at choosing how we want to feel.
The mind could be telling us things like my situation is impossible. My body will never rebalance. And if we follow through on those emotions and respond to them, our reality will absolutely reflect that back to us.
In the TV drama, every one of the characters is addicted to taking action on all of their emotions. It’s actually funny to watch. They are like puppets on a string. Consequently, everyone is stabbing everyone else in the back. Metaphorically and often literally. No one can be trusted. Things go from bad to worse for everyone, including but not limited to physical violence and death. I was only half way into season one and already I lost track of the body count.
There have been times in my own experience where I was willing to give into my mind’s emotions to the point of saying, I am willing to leave the planet because what if my mind is right.
What if the situation is impossible? What if I can’t figure this Ascension process out? Imagine giving my mind that much power?
Have we not done that in so many ways? We’ve given our power away to others in the past. To political leaders, to friends, family, doctors, spiritual leaders.
People give their power away every day to religions. We wonder, how can they allow others to convince them that they are sinners? That they must repent. That unless they follow certain doctrines they are doomed to an eternity in hell. We may laugh at that, but sometimes we are doing the same thing with our minds.
We are giving over our power to a part of us that does not always have our best interest at heart. It wants to stay in power and is very adept at using fear tactics to get us to comply. In my tv series, people’s lives are blowing up. They are blowing up other people’s lives. Victimhood reigns supreme.
And TV these days has in some ways become much more sophisticated. It was easy to spot the good guys from the bad guys earlier on in entertainment. The good guys wore white hats and the bad guys looked like thugs.
But in a good mystery or thriller you won’t know whose got your back or who is stabbing you in the back. Nothing is what it seems. The mind, bless it, has been trying to confuse us with various disguises. It may seem like an innocent remark on its part, like you need to do such and such or you will starve. It will tell us a situation is fine. But then why do we feel like we are compromising ourselves?
And it loves using shock value to get a response. A good drama will have some shocking scenes, filled with fear. And the swell of ominous music is always a nice touch.
After awhile, you won’t know who to trust. Are they all corrupt? Is anyone coming from a place of caring, or are they all just self-serving?
A LITTLE BORED
I began watching the series because it looked like something I could sink my teeth into, a nice, absorbing storyline. I felt a little indulgent, enjoying so much dysfunction, even if it was vicariously.
Lets face it, sometimes ascension can get a little boring.
And that is another reason we like indulging in a little mind drama….we are detaching from this reality and it can feel boring. Sometimes we need an infusion of something, even drama to help us to feel. There is nothing worse than not feeling. Sometimes we prefer feeling bad than not feeling at all. I asked myself a few times, as I was watching such menacing people who thought nothing of destroying others and themselves….why am I watching something that is clearly not in the least uplifting?
I needed a dose of drama….but not too close to home. Which is OK. This is not an easy process and we are doing amazingly considering all the challenges we face on a daily basis. But I also wanted resolution. And the show just wasn’t delivering.
So there is the boredom. But we are in the process of feeling the passion from our soul, which is new to our human self. There is no drama there. It is just pure joy. An inner feeling of fulfillment, completion. Of sensuality. A true passion.
And I have said this before and it’s true. The mind is even getting tired of trying to figure it out. It needs a break. It’s being given a free pass now, in the light of ascension. It can relax and allow the soul to do what it does best, and the mind also gets integrated. It gets to come along. It won’t be left behind, but it also won’t try to run the show.
