As the crisis, chaos, and conflict seems to continue, I am reminded of the peace that the heart virtues bring within.
We are in a time of deep fluctuation and change. There is no other time like this, and that is because people are starting to awaken and draw to themselves the truth that exists, and always has. There has never been a time before when the truth is there for all to see, if one just looks. This resonates with your heart as you know it to be true. What then is revealed to you is the truth you hold within; that you are an enigmatic being that holds within your heart the ability to know and express truth with love. There is no other reason to exist, other than to evolve and grow from where you are at the current time to the next moment. All that surrounds to you is taking you on that journey, and that is the only journey there is. Your free will choice is what part of that journey you are willing to participate in, knowing it is that simple.
There is much out there to sideline your mission, and that is apparent within your life. The biggest hurdle of all is the ego, for it is the egos job to keep you distracted from your true purpose; which is to evolve. The outer stimuli that is created by others’ egos in the world works to connect with your ego to feed it energy to keep the illusion intact, and on a purposeful course. That is to say that the egos main job is to deter love from existing within and so, without.
Love is of itself not a grand and glorious state of being? If it were so, why is there so much lack of it in the world? Love is an emotion and a feeling, but more than that, it is a state of being. It holds within it the powers of the heart; the heart virtues, and it can be much more powerful than anything else. So, the struggles are between the ego and the heart, each one holding power, and the good news is the heart can overcome!
The ego holds sway keeping the mind at bay until the heart converts it to Divine Mind. This is not an agenda of the heart like the one the ego holds. When the egos agenda is apparent you will find yourself immersed, if ever so slightly, in the world of an illusion created by the ego. This distraction pulls you in with opinions and judgements over things that seem to be worthy, but what is truly worthy of your time and attention? It goes back to the old adage of ‘if it feels good do it, if not, don’t’.
Too much is ignored about how something or someone makes you feel. No one has control over this but you. This is not easy, and the healing that should be done when things surface within, such as feelings, is daunting at times. There has been much discussion about healing in this blog. Healing is the starting place to remove the ‘fodder’ that feeds the ego, to keep your heart suppressed. The heart virtues cannot activate without healing taking place. Grace is the energy that feeds the healing process. It is there for anyone to access that sets the intention to heal. Healing needs to take place to ‘convert’ the ego. Without internal fear and pain the ego cannot function as a destructive force. When healing takes place the ego is transformed, it blends with the heart and your life is projected without fear! This means that love is your state of being and when this happens all that is drawn to you is a reflection of your internal state of being. What would the world look like if we infused it with this state of being, this energy?
Healing starts as an intention, and the work begins with your feelings as your guide toward wellness and expression of that clarity of being. We cannot transform our outer world without transforming the inner one. When we stop resisting the healing that needs to take place, we can transform the ego which will end the judgements. It’s the judgement that keeps the ego in motion. Allowing perspicacity to take the place of improper judgement is the answer. Using proper discernment is a loving expression for yourself which then means it will be loving for your world and the world at large.
Desiring to and finding a way for loving expression within and without, is called for now. Open to the idea of doing this work within and have the courage to take each step along the way. Measure your success in each moment and it will unfold before you as a work of love. Transformation such as this is a process, and must be done over a string of moments. This is the real process of spiritual evolution and what we are truly here to accomplish. Finding your way back to the purity of your being is the one journey we are all on together. It is the only one that counts!
Be Well, Be Love ♥
