Grieving The Loss Of A Child... Whether They Died Or Just Gone to Live Their Own Life
No matter how you slice it, a big change like this, even if it is the best of the child, is a huge trauma for the parent, especially the mother.
Most mothers are programmed to care for their young ones, but while they are doing that, they forget to be themselves, forget to rebuild a life of their own, so when the child dies, or leaves, they are left with nothing.
I have a student whose children live in other countries, you can't just offer to drop by, bring some good home-made cooking, or babysit their child while they attend to other things.
Had we received the knowledge of good and evil from God, our discernment would include God's perspective - but Adam chose to take the knowledge rather than receive it.
I copied the above sentence from a very insightful interpretation of what happened in the Garden of Eden.
What Human Being refused at that juncture is to live according and in harmony with original design. Human Being chose drama, Human Being chose to create a world of their own design and forget that they did it.
It's like the actor who read the movie script, knew how it went, but when he was at the scene, decided to do his own thing, wreak havoc, kill, cheat, lie, pretend that it is entirely up to him what would happen.
Sweep The Floor, Wash The Windows, Vs. Move To A New House Or A New Country... Or The Different Modalities Of Self-Improvement, Self-Development And Transformation
I have been looking at some of my personal sticking points.
Addicted to milk, addicted to sugar, avoiding doing the laundry... these are just the tip of the ice berg.
Oh, you thought that I was beyond that? Oh, sorry to disappoint, you are never beyond that. Besides, if I were, I would not be writing these posts, it would be painfully boring.
Life is about growing, life is about being an advancing personality, not about comfortably teaching something that is a non-issue for me. Even if writing about it would potentially cause your growth: life is about each person becoming an advancing personality, not some teaching others to be that, so they can be off the hook...
Anyway, returning to my top of the iceberg imperfections: I am wondering what is the payoff.
I have been spending money on my own training. Not as much as before: this time I only spend money on stuff I know I can totally consume: i.e. do all the exercises, attend all the classes, without having to give up on something important.
I used to spend 5-10 times more money, but normally I would drop all the balls... and end up empty handed.
So, I am spending less money, but getting tremendous value for each dollar I spend.
Living my life as an experiment has given me a valuable "to the side and slightly elevated" vantage point.
What does that mean? That while I am in the midst of whatever is going on, whatever is bothering me, I am also viewing it from a point not in the midst of.
Example: My landlord treats me like a dirty rag. That is a sentence from he midst of... From the side I can see that it is his self defense. He is a bad landlord who needs this property to suck the money out of so he and his family can live the way they want to live. I can understand his point of view. It doesn't mesh well with mine, but such is life. But the dirty rag thing is the figment of my imagination.
As usual, I didn't invent this sentence, but as far as I can see it is true, every single time.
People say: I did that... but I don't normally do that. I never do this... but of course, they do. Cheat, lie, go back on their word, no show up, not call, keep you waiting, gossip about you... you know the stuff that people do. People like you.
Let me give you a few examples, and how it can be your best "coach" if you have the desire to improve your life, raise your vibration, feel better, etc. Because how you feel about yourself is what gives you the quality of your life.
If you love yourself, you love your life. If you look in the mirror and you see a jolly good fellow, or a winner, or a courageous broad, you love yourself and you love your life.
Why An Activator Cannot Change Your Behavior, Only You Can?
What happens when you get an activator downloaded to you? Even though the activator (a set of statements that are worded as commands, and are very similar to affirmations) alters the "terrain" or the balance of power in the sub-conscious, those affirmations will not alter your behavior.
I have been off-track, according to Source. I have fallen into the same trap as so many people before me: I started to teach people... Became this talking person... grrr.
It's been both time-consuming, and it's been ineffective.
So what am I really supposed to do? What is the big thing that will happen in 2012 that having a higher vibration, that being connected to Source could counter, for yourself, and maybe for the planet? That is the big question now.
Your Life's passion and your sex... what is the connection?
I have been hearing: do what you are passionate about and you'll love your life.
Right. But how many of us know what it feels like to be passionate? How many of us are willing to give ourselves over to our passion? What is passion? Is it 21st century, (i.e. hip) to be passionate? I don't mean irate. I don't mean interested. I don't mean enjoy talking about it... I mean passionate?
