I think we can all agree that we have become very comfortable with feeling bad. We have had lifetimes worth of practice at it. The whole gamut of crappy emotions like sadness, hopelessness, doubt, worry, just to name a few, were our m.o. Feeling lousy, over and over….nothing new there.
In fact, we were so adept at feeling less than good, we created a whole philosophy around it. No pain, no gain. Jerry Springer made a fortune on it. So did the diet and exercise equipment industry. The Christians used sin and their God endorsed it. The whole karma con-cept embodied it, with its payback clause.
We were hitting land mine after land mine of pain and struggle.
So after a long time, it became our comfort zone. One that very few stepped out of. And those who did were swiftly done away with. No one wanted to see some human walking around happy for no apparent reason…filled to the brim with some kind of super natural joy factor.
Look what happened to Jesus. Although, he did try to push the Romans a little too far, and they pushed back. He should have left town when he had the chance.
“Claim the freedom that is your birthright, and take yourself off the cross….suffering gets you nowhere.”
In fact, his message to us is essentially, Claim the freedom that is your birthright, and take yourself off the cross….suffering gets you nowhere.
So, here we are, with our soul beginning to plant both its feet in our life with us. And there is some reluctance on everyone’s part (some from us, some from our soul). And that reluctance is because when has there been such an intimate connection between human and soul here in this reality?
There has got to be some trepidation because it’s not been done before quite like this. It’s easier to just ascend and get the hell out of here…but to be enlightened, to unite with our divine eternal self, here and now, and to stay here?
That’s just crazy.
To feel good, to feel sensual, to feel filled with our own spirit….and step out of our comfort zone? That’s pretty revolutionary. To step out of the old story of ours, in which we are suffering, or playing victim of something out there or of our own mind and body…whew!
To dare to dream big, to allow endless resources and health and joy into our being. Who does that?
We do. We are the forerunners, and it’s always hardest for us, but we are in a new place now. We are not here by chance, but because we invoked it.
It takes courage to allow all the emotions, even the joyful ones. Especially the joyful ones. It takes an advanced soul like (your name here) to detach from the rest of humanity. It takes a bold soul to decide that the rest of humanity can get its own gift basket.
We no longer have to take out our sympathy card with others we talk to, and then go home and privately feel our joy. Now we can feel it, and express it, even in public places.
Can you imagine?
If you are having a hard time imagining that, walking around feeling pretty damned great 24/7, that’s o.k. It’s just more resistance going on. It’s natural to feel resistance to feeling great. It’s new territory.
But we are familiar with how practice makes perfect. Haven’t we practiced feeling awful, in so many ways, for such a long, long time?
But good news. It doesn’t take long at all to feel good, because we already do, at least the part of us that’s eternal. The part that already has ascended and knows no fear or sadness or lack.
So, makes sense to keep inviting that part in, and accept it when you feel it, as your birthright.
It’s a win-win situation.
