In our divine grandeur, there is nothing for us to learn! So, we don’t feel fulfilled when we continuously judge ourselves as needing to learn more. Only the ego, which is a collective consciousness, thinks it needs to learn! Now, learning is wonderful, and is definitely to be experienced, but not because we NEED IT; Simply because we choose it!
Choice is our divine creative power! Whatever we choose to focus on will expand in our experience, because we are so powerful!
If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that I am both a teacher and a student of ACIM, A Course In Miracles. It contrasts the ego from the divine by differentiating between “egoic grandiosity”, and “Divine Grandeur”. In awareness of our true identity, there’s nothing to learn, nothing to fear, and nothing to worry about! The foundation for my understanding of the “purpose of life” is found in ACIM, Text, chapter five.
So, why did we come here? Perhaps the best way to answer that is to ask an additional question; How can Pure Intelligence fully experience all aspects of it’self, unless it divides it’self into all of the aspects of it’s intelligence? For example, how can One know what blonde hair is, fully, unless it sees, or experiences, dark colored hair?
And so, we experience duality! Here, in the manifested world!
One amazing teaching I learned while at Oneness University in India, becoming a Oneness Trainer, was this: If you will allow yourself to experience ANY EMOTION, fully, without resistance, IT WILL TURN INTO BLISS! Usually, when we feel something negative, we resist it, as if to say, “Oh, no! I don’t want to have that experience!”
But THAT is what creates the triggers, the charges, which cause similar experiences to come back to us again and again! By disallowing ourselves to fully feel those emotions, and shutting them down, they actually make us magnets for similar experiences! So, we cheat ourselves in two ways: 1. We don’t feel it until it turns into a blissful feeling! 2. We make ourselves a “crap magnet” who gets triggered when we least expect it!
Are you wondering why feeling anything, even negative feelings, without resisting feeling it, turns into bliss? BECAUSE THAT’S WHY WE ARE HERE! SO GOD ENERGY CAN FULLY EXPERIENCE ITSELF! DISALLOWING YOURSELF TO FEEL MAKES YOU UNFULFILLED, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT FULFILLING YOUR REASON FOR BEING HERE!
Now, when you are allowing yourself to experience your feelings, there is one important “rule” you must adhere to; STOP THINKING! ZERO ANALYSIS! If you start asking questions of yourself, like, “Why is this happening to me?” “Is this because of my teacher being mean to me back when I was in the sixth grade?” If you move into THINKING, you are adding energy to it, making it worse, instead of simply discharging the energy by feeling it. Make sense?
So, go try it! You’ll actually feel more joy in life because you are fulfilling your purpose!
And, I’m here for you!
