The idea that we are self sufficient if a difficult one to acknowledge when our physical bodies are dependent on food water and shelter. To be clear this not the self sufficiency I am referring to. Perhaps one day we will evolve to the point of not requiring such physical support from outside. Indeed there are some people already who exist by breathing and Sun gazing alone. They call themselves breatharians but is not a mainstream phenomena yet. Indeed the pleasures of tasting food is part of the Earth experience and may stay with us for a few years to come.
Being self sourced has always been my goal as long as I can remember. It is different to being self sufficient – we are interdependent creatures 🙂
It has shown itself in my propensity to be independent and challenging societal norms at an early age. It is not that I wanted to be alone as being part of the community is and was important to me but somehow I never really fitted in too well. Although this used to bother me at first I now know this was my training to be fully self sourced and not depend on feedback.
Being self sourced means self validation of your own self worth. It allows access to your own divinity and not seeking God outside of self.
It is dropping the need to keep asking others what they think of you and constantly needing feedback to validate your own impression of self. When this state is achieved there is very little that can touch you from the outside. You can maintain your center and act from inner peace in all situations regardless of what they are. That is the goal – mastery of self is a process 😉
It has many unsuspected benefits for your body. The cells only respond to the directions given to them by their human host. They do not respond to the opinions and emotions of others except when the human is unconscious of their influence . The human host has free will to react or respond to outside stimuli in a way that maintains his or her equilibrium at all times. Cells benefit from the balanced energetic stance by working at optimum capacity. Better health is achieved. This is how acting from the point of connection to own higher self or divine spark nourishes the body.
Lets all become self-balancing independent units of love incarnate 🙂
Seeking certainty is an illusion. Yet we are constantly trying to chase it.
In life there is a strong pull of things continuing as they are and have been to ensure our survival. What hasn’t killed us to date is unlikely to kill us in the future. Familiarity is considered a safe option and “better the devil you know” is preferable to stepping into unknown. Sometimes we continue living in the same circumstances even when they are not optimal or actually harmful. Life becomes stagnant and we are slowly dying without being aware of it. Depression, disease and relationship problems develop seemingly out of nowhere.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
By stepping out of the box into unknown allows for expansion and growth. Life begins to flow when a warped concept of safety is abandoned and risks are taken daily.
To live this way we must welcome uncertainty as our new friend. We need to drop assumptions of how things should look and ” I don’t know” must be our new mantra. This way life will unfold before us and we can step into it with fascination of the new.
Do not be surprised to see fear show up when you change the way you live. Habits are hard to break. Fear of unknown shows up as “caution”, in “what ifs”, in trying to prepare for all eventualities, in speculating “what’s the worst that can happen”, in cautioning others to”be careful”,to “stay safe”, in sharing our own accident experiences to stop others following in our footsteps, in sharing our version or “reality” full of all kind of dangers thus preventing them from even trying even though other person’s experience of the same scenario may be totally different. Catching yourself when such thoughts arise are half of the battle to put these fears to rest.
Certainty as a concept is unreal. We can only reduce the perceived risk based on the facts gathered from past events but never eliminate it. The future contains events and possibilities we cannot conceive of.
Some uncertainties we are happy to live with everyday. For example most of us don’t know how the car/phone/computer works yet we are happy to use these devices . We board the plane yet I doubt anyone actually knows how to fly one. We TRUST ourselves to follow our urge to have the experience without knowing or certainty that these devices will work.
When we feel connected to our inner sense of trust and knowing we can make choices where “I don’t know” is the defining state of being allowing for discovery and fascination to rise up. Uncertainty is the doorway to growth and expansion and seeking it will make our life rich beyond anything that your mind can imagine it to be.
Make uncertainty your new friend and actively seek it !
Being in the moment is the new holly grail of consciousness work.
Yet not many of us do not actually know how to stay present. The best question to ask oneself in any situation is: “Am I in resistance to it?”. To put it simply if we want the experience to be different then what it is we are in resistance to it. This doesn’t mean we have to like it. It does mean we can choose how to respond to it by listening within to see what the experience brings up in us and what opportunities it offers us for expansion. We are then in acceptance of it.
The survival instinct has served us well up till now by directing us to situations where we feel safe , have ease and control. To evolve pass the survival instinct which, to perform its function keeps us small, we need to seek uncertainty and movement to grow and expand. We are evolving from Homo Sapiens where logic and thoughts are predominant to Homos Spiritus where insight (inner vision) is the directing force. In the multidimensional paradigm reality our decisions will not make sense to many but will yield results and take us where our expanded sense of Self wants to go.
Learning to stay present is like learning any new skill: it takes practice and dedication. For example we need toothpaste but the store doesn’t have our favorite brand in stock. We can react with :” They never have it when I need it!” or ” Why does it always happen to me?” or we can look around and explore what else is available. We can mine that moment to see what it offers us. The opportunity is created to discover what other tooth cleaning options there are. The shop assistant may advise on other brands or discuss a possibility of mixing a toothpaste to order from all natural ingredients that we could try. We can decide to try it. We may discover we even prefer it to our usual toothpaste! Whatever our choice we begin a process of exploration. Our world gets expanded. The “negative” event opens up new possibilities.
Any challenging confrontation has much to offer too. By staying present and listening to another we can learn what motivates them and it may allow us to express our own truth which we would not otherwise share. As a result the relationship with that person may deepen.
By staying in fascination of What Is we give ourselves an opportunity to experience much more then staying “safe” can ever offer us.
Ultimately, with practice, we may become aware that each moment is fractal in nature and contains within it everything we ever need.
