Giving birth does not always appear as pure ease. The more one is able to let go, the easier it becomes. It does not take effort to let go. Without effort is effortlessness. It is possible if we allow and believe it to be. It's like trying to lift one's hand with conscious control instead of allowing it naturally to lift itself. If we embrace effortless expansion into joy, then even previously painful experiences can become cathartic, enlightening and even pleasurable. The more we release, the more we are set free from the bondage of our ego.
Our awakening is emerging from the embers of past wars, destructive ego and selfishness. These dramas that are still continuing are gradually giving rise to self knowledge and the insight of oneness or universal consciousness. The virtue of forgiveness has been spoken about for generations without truly taking hold in the human psyche. Why is this?
The cleansing catharsis of two world wars and multiple genocides of the 20th century was supposed to be a cleansing that would finally hammer the nail in the coffin of the cult of hatred, racism, greed and killing. Instead, selfishness and greed continued to reign upon this beautiful land.
If we see others as outsiders, they automatically become our enemies. The constant and often desperate seeking of more material wealth and clinging to attachments borne of scarcity consciousness is premised on a hierarchy of competition and privilege. Scarcity consciousness prevents the idea taking hold in practice of sharing. "Dog eat dog" competitiveness is far removed from gentleness, as it cannot afford compassion.
If our societies really cared for humanity, we wouldn't have starving people, borders, or unnecessary suffering. How can we be free unless we're all free? If old ideas are not cleansed from the human psyche, we will be condemned to continue the cycle of hatred and selfishness premised on fear. The religions of the day are the same religions that have led us to multiple wars, slavery, ethnic cleansing, holocausts, child abuse and the same (and worse) treatment metered out to our animal and plant brothers and sisters (death, slavery and extinction). Who are we kidding?
A new consciousness is bringing a message of universal love for all living beings - animal, plant and human. Even a rock is alive with energy. All life is sacred. If we destroy our planet, we destroy ourselves - for what end? Do we wish to create extinction?
It is in the complete trust in life itself that we come to experience the higher states of bliss. It is this level of evolution that allows women to experience orgasmic birthing. It is this level of evolution that informs us that even though it appears the world is in a chaotic explosion of negativity and violence, we are birthing something new and wonderful, and this birthing process, in itself, can be enjoyable too.
We are only limited by our minds that tell us it cannot be so.
Consciously trying to control "letting go" is like trying to control peace, prayer or meditation. The process itself requires a letting go that is not possible via volition. One can deliberately let go of control, yet one cannot deliberately be in control of letting go.
Pain is a blockage of the flow of energy, indicating a stuck emotion. Fear blocks this flow. Resistance holds the flow, preventing it from being felt and released within the body-mind complex. When we are ready to let go and release that energy, feeling activates the body's inner wisdom. It is then natural to release and let go in a state of complete surrender and allowance.
Every leaf is unique, every person has a unique energetic frequency. This bio-energy guides the circumstances that we attract and how we experience those circumstances. Every person attracts unique experiences based on their unique frequency.
We can choose. We are able to choose something different as individuals and as a species. Yet it is our ability to let go and trust, surrender to the all-knowing conscious field of intelligence that surrounds us, that dictates how well we surf the waves of change.
Do we conform to the old ways - religious, economic and political control - or do we expand and evolve outwards into the new?
Anais Nin courageously spoke out against conformity:
"I disregard the proportions, the measures, the tempo of the ordinary world. I refuse to live in the ordinary world as ordinary women. To enter ordinary relationships. I want ecstasy. I am a neurotic in the sense that I live in my world. I will not adjust myself to the world. I am adjusted to myself."
Change is coming. Will you live in a world of your own creation, or be satisfied by following others' creations?
How will you surf the waves?
