It's a paradox isn't it: we cling to life so desperately because somehow we think it makes us secure and happy. But actually all that happens, is we squeeze the juice out of life itself. Society tries to 'insure' our existence by working to control the resources and climate of the planet, but all it does, is drive society ever close to oblivion. We are on the edge. There are so many ways that life could be wiped out here. But by a simple switch of perspective, that doesn't have to be something to fear. Quite the reverse. It could fuel the freedom to approach life in a way you've perhaps never before done...
The Miracle of Change
Scientists are now talking about how superflares from our sun could 'cleanse' all life on the planet. That this already probably happened to our closest relative in the solar system - Mars. Which is why the planet is devoid of life. As people go about their lives, the supermarket, the school, the gas station or the mall, to me it all seems so unreal. I actually find the phenomenon that it could all change in an instant refreshing -
- Because there's a realness to it. Life IS like that. It is all relativistic - it comes and goes. It was never meant to be fixed in one particular state - one system of one never-ending, fixed relationship. The problem for most of humanity, is that in clinging to the way he would like things to be, he actually loses one of his greatest freedoms and gifts - the miracle of change.
Change is the carrier to new life, new emergence, new vibrancy. Change breaks down the old and clears the energetic space so something new can arise. And that's the problem for humanity - most people live life today, expecting it to be just like it was yesterday.
- Even if they would like it to change into something more successful, they actually approach the day with the same mind set as yesterday.
The problem of the fixed mind set
It's all to do with expectancy. Society wants to control people, and does so by causing them to expect it will all be a certain way, based on how they've always known it to be.
- So an actual mindset starves life of the oxygen it needs to flow with constant change. Such embedded, unconscious expectancy, actually limits life to something lesser.
If you expect it to be a certain way, if you approach your life and relationships in the same way you did yesterday - then that's what you'll create. But because life is continually moving on, you're building a false eddy current in the flow. Sooner or later, your false-eddy-current-reality must come crashing.
It's all just a question of time.
Inspiration for liberation
So if I share a truth with you - the one about the highly possible solar cleansing of the Earth - perhaps instead of being in fear about what that might mean, we could use it as inspiration for liberation?
If you knew that we really are living on the edge, that it could all end today, or in the near future, how would that cause you to live your life differently?
How would you change your approach to life right now?
Open to the realness of the moment
For me, it means approaching the moment with an active openness. I try to see the fullness of the moment as it really is. What is that person actually saying - beyond the words? Why is that situation shaping in the way it is? How is it inviting me to be now?
In so doing, it means you can be constantly open to the flow. You find alignment more easily, the truth more easily. And coming from such truth, actually harnesses the flow through you. You create incredible capacity for evolutionary growth - miracles abound.
If your liberated soul would be all that could survive such transition, all that could grow and prosper through it, how would your emphasis change in daily life?
To me, this is the true nature of letting go...
How will you approach life differently?
So when you get up today and get going, how will you approach life differently? What will your attitude to the moment be? What might my sharing actually change within you?
