Keys To ‘Ascend’

 

openToLove

This affirmation came to me when I was finding it hard to feel ‘love’ for a person who challenges me. Realizing that holding ‘grudges’ will only set me back – keep me ‘bound’ in the vicious cycle of the ‘eye for an eye’ law of the natural world – I decided I need to radically embrace this person whom I feel challenged by.

Defying your natural instinct to react badly to someone who may be “pushing your buttons” is really a ‘radical’ thing to do; but, once you do it – and get yourself off the vicious cycle – you might find that you will be glad you did. I was.

If we were to undergo a ‘rapture’ – or, an event which would determine our spiritual destiny – holding on to grudges; having ill thoughts towards another; being unforgiving towards others AND self; where would that leave us? In what state of being…state of ‘awareness’, will we end up?  The light “freedom” of lovinghealing…’forgiveness’ – or, the heavyburdened…’halls of hell’ (being a state of mind)?

I know what I would prefer; but, will I be willing to let go of all the crap … I should!

Loving All, Judging Nothing

Lessons to self

The challenge – and gift – of the Tesla Metamorphosis practitioner is to judge nothing; and to extend their loving heart to all – even the most unlovable (in self AND others). Here is where the radical shift in consciousness can take place – which raises our consciousness – causing us to take on a ‘higher frequency’, or – ‘state of consciousness’.

The lightness of being that can be felt when we choose to do this, is remarkably liberating.

A voice of doubt queries…

Q. How could I forgive myself for all the wrongs I have committed? I need to be punished –I don’t deserve the privilege of not having to judge myself!?

Here is where we stay ‘stuck’.  Open your eyes!  See the cause of things; know there is rhyme and reason to things. Don’t take on the ‘privilege’ of being ‘solely responsible’ for all the “bad stuff”. You are not a sole perpetrator – you are a participant – and have only ever acted from a natural instinct and ‘drive’ to do so.

Are you going to blame yourself for having been an unconscious player?  When you don’t realise the karmic wheel–law of cause and effect–you are stuck on – well, you continue the motions and cycles…the ‘eye for an eye’ thing. But, when you finally see, and realise, this cycle you are trapped in, you begin to imagine a way out.

One great teacher who wanted us to see this was J.C.  ‘Turning the other cheek’ was not an impractical ‘suggestion’ – it was an instruction on how to negate this perpetuating karmic cycle; how to neutralise it affects.

Okay, back to the part about forgiving self.  Once you realise the cycle you have been trapped in, you can slowly – or quickly – begin to develop mercy for yourself.  Recognizing your own mishaps of judgment and action – in others – can allow you to begin having mercy for others.  You will be able to give mercy; and, you know the sayingwhat you give you shall receive.

Q. Is there ‘sin’ and punishment in ‘knowing’ these things but not ‘acting’ on them? i.e. By ‘continuing’ to act badly, we compound our ability to ‘forgive’ ourselves?

Just know – this is a very tough and stubborn skin we’re trying to shed – our old habits.  So, please, do not put yourself down for slipping up!  Instead, know this is a hard task and expect to occasionally fall backwards.  But, do persevere; ‘Carry your cross’; and, keep that head pointed in the direction you want to go.

Afterthought:

When tempted to become angry, for example – rather than slipping into the whole drama and fiasco of it (and ultimate guilt), reason with yourself –ask: ‘why’ am I feeling angry?  Bring awareness to the situation, remembering it is a karmic response…an ‘effect’ of a cause – an ‘equal and opposite’ reaction to a thing.  ‘Light’ on the situation allows you navigate through it.  You decide – ‘O.k.’…. Where ‘do’ I want to go with this? – Actually, I don’t want to be angry…so, I will let it go.
