I think there's a generalised belief in some spiritual circles that when you attain Enlightenment life's trials and tribulations all fall away. You've reached some higher dimensional beach, whereupon, you can chill out and just hang ten. Think again! There is only the process. In Enlightenment the difference is that there's complete recognition of it, a complete surrender to it, and above all, a constant turning into the density that presents, a constant unwinding through.
When you step purposefully forwards, when you commit to making true and lasting change that's real and authentic, one that's aligning with the flow, then you become a reflection to all around you. They see your light, which challenges them to step out of their own box too. If they are anxious or fearful about what they're being invited to do, then the knee jerk reaction is often to shoot the messenger, rather than have to deal with an inconvenient message. That's exactly when judgment and projection will come calling. BUT, it can only land if in someway you are judging yourself. STOP.
The Deep Energy field binds into the subconscious and is deceptive and distorting. But with the razor edge of profound self honesty, we can break free. It's about channeling awareness into all our behaviours and aligning only with that which we know and feel to be in alignment with our soul, no matter what the external temptation. It's about the forging of soul sovereignty. It leads to true freedom of being.
