This week, I experienced the letting go of a block relating to how I act towards people who in anyway may depend on me.
Let us start with the positive. I always want the very best for anyone that depends on me for any reason at all. I take responsibility concerning others very seriously. Too seriously it turns out. So seriously actually, that I loose a lot of myself in the seriousness of it all. I tighten up and lose a lot of my fun. I lose my freeing connection to the Universe by being too concerned with details that may not matter to others as much as to me. I want everything to be perfect.
I have been asking for help in this area and my prayers are slowly being answered. This week, with a few people visiting, I am noticing a lot of subtle thought patterns and physical tightening. They led me down the path of discovering a different way of relating to people.
When I realized this new way, instead of feeling happy I felt pain, guilt, regret. How could I have lived in this way?! It is so unhelpful and counterproductive.
No point of letting a good thing go sour. Time to get back up. I give Gratitude for finally being shown the blocks and being given the opportunity to let old patterns go. I understand that I was doing the best I could at any given time. I forgive myself and move on with Love.
It has been almost a year since my lessons on Duality have started.
This week's lesson came in a form of the following story, then a brief explanation and suggestions. I am not suggesting this is right (or wrong) for you. However, I do hope you enjoy the story!
The Man Who Wanted To See All The Good
The Boy was taught from an early age to follow the Light,
because it is the Giver of Life and it is Good.He was taught to stay away from the Dark, as it is Bad.One day, when the Boy has already grown into
a Man he had a thought.He will stare
into the Sun, the Giver of Life, to see All the Good.Then his life will truly be perfect.
The Man who wanted to
see it All stared at the Sun on the brightest day of the year.He stared even though everyone told him to
look away.He stared and stared.Minutes.Hours.They told him that his
eyes will burn in their sockets and he will never see again.Yet the Man kept looking up all day into the
bright ball of fire in the sky.
As the sun set, the Man finally looked away.No matter where he looked, all he could see
was the bright light of the Sun.That
night, when the Man went to bed and closed his eyes, all he could see was the
bright light of the sun.The next
morning, the next week and for many years to come all he could see was the bright
light of the sun.
From that day on he
was never in darkness, because he could not see it.The sun shone into his eyes, no matter what
the weather, no matter how high the moon was up in the sky.The day the Man wanted to see it All and looked
up to the Light of the Sun, he did not realize that without the Dark, there
would be no Peace for him.Without Peace,
there would be no Rest.
That is when the Man realized that the Dark is just as important as the
By going to one side or the
other, one becomes imbalanced and unhappy; one cannot grow and cannot be at
Honour every aspect of yourself.
The Light and the Dark within you, have been balancedbeautifully to create YOU.
We live in a world of Duality; therefore, we cannot escape
the Light, nor the Dark.There is Light
and Dark within each and every one of us.Often, we are taught to fight one of them.When we fight we do not accept.If we do not accept, there cannot be peace
within us.When we fight we try to be
someone else and are not accepting our own being.
Dark and Light are not good nor bad.They just Are.Having the Light and the Dark within us is
the way it is meant to be.This delicately
built-in balance is the perfect formula which makes us who we are.It is when we are imbalanced that things go
wrong.Fear will get in no matter which way we
imbalance ourselves.Hence we will not
be living as our true self.
The suggestion is to Stop fighting the “bad”.Stop reaching for “good”.Just Be, the way you were meant to be.The way you were born into this Black and
