At this point in your awakening process if you believe that it is important to become a better person, a better human being, it’s time to challenge that belief. Because if you don’t challenge it, trust me, it will be challenged.
Because this process has nothing to do with becoming a better person. Becoming more spiritual, or loving, more compassionate, or more forgiving.
If you resonate with this blog you are at a point in your awakening where you know that there is nothing you are required to fix about your human self. If you didn’t know that, that’s o.k. There is a part of you that does, and just needed to be reminded.
I have a gag reflex to statements like, we are all one, and love one another, or world peace. Why? Because it reflects a total mischaracterization of the awakening process. Along with, forgive others, love others unconditionally, and it is better to give than to receive.
All that these statements do is make people feel even more unworthy and guilty than they already feel. It only enhances their own sense of self-loathing. It’s like the organization AA making the participant recount how they may have hurt others and encourages them to one by one make amends with all those people.
Ironically the root of the addiction was a lack of self-love in the first place. And telling them that they are a bad person on top of that, well, not sure how that helps them.
If you are still trying to be a better person I highly suggest you give it up immediately. It will serve only to hinder your ascension process. If you want to get better at crossword puzzles, or becoming better or more proficient at making an omelet, or improve on any of a number of technical skills, that’s fine. Have at it.
But if you are striving to become more enlightened, or more patient, or more understanding, or a better friend, you are just getting in your own way. Even if you are trying to become healthier physically or emotionally, at this point It will backfire on you.
But many of you are discovering that sobering reality. You see that trying to do any of those things just ends up frustrating you. It’s a vicious circle.
Because, first of all it is working with the assumption that there is something wrong with you. That you need healing and fixing. That your human self is by its nature flawed. And there is a standard of the perfect human that keeps moving around depending on who you talk to or whose teachings you follow.
Unfortunately too much spiritual teaching encourage people to strive to be better human beings.
Did you notice that shaming others into being ‘better’ whether that means kinder, more understanding, or whatever, falls flat. And if they do attempt it, it’s certainly disingenuous.
A lot of the striving to be better to others is all about control and manipulation.
A big aspect of this awakening process is feeling anger, and impatience. I won’t go into depth on it since I have covered it in other posts. But for those of us on the ascension, Embodied enlightenment trajectory, those emotions are coming up more frequently and we are learning to accept them, and we also know we are not going to truly hurt anyone else.
We’re simply not capable of that at this stage,
So if anyone does feel hurt, they were already feeling that way, trust me. Even for us, if we do get triggered by others, we recognize now that it’s not really about them, either.
And, having said that, we also know that being conscious on such an unconscious planet can test our patience on our best day. So, sometimes the crankiness is because we are dealing with others who are still asleep.
So the whole business of loving others and sharing our light with everyone no matter what is perhaps meant for other groups of ‘seekers.’ But if you are here reading this and resonate with it, you are no longer seeking.
Sometimes the old religious teachings have a way of seeping into the new consciousness teachings. The concept of our soul, or our I AM takes the place of the concept of a judgy god.
The whole idea of being ‘good’ in order to be accepted by god, and that god will grant us a heavenly place is old school. Do you notice that many religions teach that people must be good here first, and then they must wait until they die to get into heaven, or wherever. Their reward is delayed, and for reasons most don’t want to talk about. On a macro level it has to do with controlling the masses. And on a micro level, it has to do with the mind trying to manipulate and control us.
That delayed gratification works to a degree to keep people in line. Because the reward is always sometime in the future and somewhere off-planet.
It’s why some avowed Christians hate the new age folks. The latter are practicing the idea that joy is within, that god is within, and that one can reach states or consciousness without a god that requires heavy financing.
Years ago, I decided to visit a place that purported to do healings. It was Christian-based. The women asked me if I dabbled in the new age before they were willing to lay hands on me for a ‘healing.’
At the time I said, no, I wasn’t. And, technically, I was really not a new age person. I was in a category all my own, as many of us are.
But even though the question put me off, admittedly, I was there because I was feeling kind of desperate.
If there is any measurement of ‘better’ I can say I have come a long way in not feeling desperate about anything. But no thanks to my mind. Because the mind loves to elicit the emotions of fear and doubt and desperation.
Thanks more to my soul, who doesn’t have the fear to begin with. I now see the benefit of tapping into that more and more, the presence of my soul.
Because my soul isn’t asking me to improve on myself as the human. It isn’t worried that I haven’t been good enough, or caring enough, or pure enough. The human judges themselves, yet at this stage our soul has no definition for good, caring, or pure. To our Eternal Self, it’s all just experience.
Our soul is the antithesis of a judgeMENTAL god.
Our soul is all about freedom, and joy. It doesn’t compromise that freedom or joy. So, that’s challenging for the human, because the human is all about compromise. Giving in to please others, to feel safe, to make ends meet, to keep a relationship from falling apart. And the notion that striving to be ‘better’ is still ingrained in the human.
All the millions of small compromises, and the waiting until they feel more worthy, over time, erode the human’s sense of joy.
Yet, the sense of freedom is one breath away, one frequency away. It doesn’t matter how long the human has been feeling the dull, colorless emotions. The human doesn’t have to wait until he leaves the planet, or until she ‘resolves’ all her issues to experience that unbridled joy. That freedom is right here and right now.
The human doesn’t have to ‘improve’ on themselves one iota in order to be worthy of that joy.
