I would rather transcend this life in the arms of Love’s eternal message, than live inside the fortress of my fear. I would rather become the Love that I wish to feel, than pine for the acceptance that only I can provide for myself. It is so easy to live as a traveling vacancy just waiting to be occupied by an external way of filling up my own well of Self-Love. But how many times must the experience dominate the mind set of ‘over-excited happiness’ and ‘not worthy’, by the action of stimulus entering and leaving our own presence?
I hear all the time, people mentioning that everything changes and that it is hard to balance the inequities of existence. And because of this, the burden of it all makes for a heavy mind, full of stress and anxiety. The experience has somehow permeated our sense of awareness to create the belief that we are the experience and that without it, we will cease to exist. A fear is manifested that without the experience being maintained, that our purpose, our meaning, our sense of feeling acceptance will be lost.
Before the experience or external stimulus even existed, there was a sense of being. Before the sense of ‘I am this’ or ‘I am that’, there is an ultimate point of awareness, the ‘I Am’. This single point of being is where our greatest potential lies. From this position, there is a maintained distance, a subtle shift in view between the observational being and the experiential doing. From this position our natural state of Love is fearlessly strong and consistent, established eternally and naturally overflowing. This exists before the experience has a chance to mold our emotional state and all of the qualities of judgment that follow it.
To allow the experience or an external stimulus to occupy this space, has the capability of giving our conscious energy to the illusion that it is the reality. Now the experience inadvertently becomes who we are and becomes the position from where we respond from. In this new focus is where fear and all of its sub-qualities (jealousy, hate, anger, obsession, envy, lust, etc…) exist. So in a sense, the potential to become a traveling vacancy seems real. Wandering through life experiencing the highest and lowest range of emotion is felt because there is a constant need to maintain occupancy of the experiences that will keep us feeling complete.
This is not to say that as humans we should not experience life. Connection with others is obviously vital to our growth and expanding awareness. Finding Love and deepening our understanding through community is essential to our very purpose on this plane. Otherwise, why would we be here right now?
If and when this position of ‘I Am’ is maintained, it is more natural and effortless to become the message from that eternal place of being. The seeking for completeness ends, simply because it has been achieved through re-establishing that position. And from that position, the purest form of unconditional Love can be expressed towards others. To practice in the surrendering of ourselves to this state of higher consciousness is the most noblest of causes towards humanity as well as to the evolution of our own spiritual discovery.
I would rather transcend this life in the arms of Love’s eternal message, than live inside the fortress of my fear. I would rather become the Love that I wish to feel, than pine for the acceptance that only I can provide for myself.
