And if life is forever, why fear change? I thought I would come back and check on your custom-made reality. For those who don't know what am talking about I proposed that since the world did not end then it is time for us to change the world from the inside out by custom making our reality, stopping the negative internal dialogues and substituting them with positive ones for a start.
All the talk about ghosts and the rest is always to keep your interest... or is it? This is the last of the End of Day series. We will move on to a practical guide to opening the curtain to the unseen.
What is the nature of your existence and what are the components of your being? Let us compare you to a robot, you've heard it probably before. Your parents, school, society at large have programmed you with expectations and capabilities or abilities. Even as adults our friends and co-workers tell us what organizational culture deems acceptable. One time a friend and I were solving a crossword puzzle together, I was doing it at a high speed and she told me to slow down, she told me I was attracting the attention of the people around us, the setting was one of intellectual snobs who would bombard me with questions on how and why since it was considered 'highest difficult level' and one of the reasons for the 'party'. I don't think wine, molded cheese, fruits and crackers make a party.
Reinforcement is necessary to keep your robot going. BAD ROBOT says: you are unable to be happy because of this and that, whatever reasons were instilled in you. GOOD ROBOT says: you are able to be happy because of this and that whatever reasons were instilled in you. Both robots can have a long conversation with each other and waste your life in a psychiatrist office. Shoot both robots with this deadly laser beam: Clarity. Because you truly have no reason to fear.
Robots and every robotic or automated response be it positive or negative is made out of fear. One is to protect and the other to please, both are a defense mechanism from oppression, what is oppressing you? Fear! Is it not ironic?! I think it is funny because it is so obvious now, and yet I had to go through the struggle of conquering fear at thirteen years of age and truly dive into my divine nature which I had been aware of from infancy,.
I remember the first time I was alone or without the 'noise-afraid-beings' that is, humans, it was the most peaceful experience for me, I was not truly alone, a jasmine tree against a red wall in that small long patio with a well of water running underneath, a clear blue sky above, they were not scared, and I remember breathing in the entire world and thinking "Oh, I see", I realized the talking beings were different from the rest of the creation and to be gentle with them. You may ask why I can remember these things, I would ask you why can't you? Sometimes truth hurts, that is all I have to say about that... for now.
I was not born afraid, a prideful, aggressive, household growing up was a tall order to love and my loyal nature had a hard time saying goodbye to all that nonsense. I was not born afraid, well meaning catholic educators beat rebellion into me, they made an enemy out of me, they missed out on a great friend, for am loyal and true. I was not born afraid, men and women who coveted my beauty and innocence at any cost made me guarded and reserved, I would screen your intentions before I let you get close to me. I was not born afraid, but I decided that those petty little wanton tyrants in my life deserved to be kicked out of my life. Now I am happy in my custom-made reality that is perfecting from love that is true. What does your custom-made reality look like? What are your resolutions, good intentions or goals for the rest of this year?
I address your intentions to reshape your world at this time because statistically it is in the first week of February that most drop the ball. I say Do not make year-long resolutions, make 28 days resolutions, and then break them up in 4 weeks. Then one day at a time. Once you reach 28 days with one habit or reprogrammed reaction, thought or goal it is yours. Move on to the next, in this lunar way you can reach 13 major goals in one year. Take the moon cycles, not the solar calendar, it is more in tune with your moods. The Full and New Moons are specially powerful in terms of gravitational pull. Try to limit liquids and food four days before them and during them to maintain clarity. Clarity is power.
You find one thing that makes your heart joyful and leap with abandon, then do it, and don't stop doing it, get to be the best at it, just remember these principles: I wont harm any life forms intentionally, I will help others to the best of my ability, my custom-made reality will benefit the welfare of all.
What you are afraid of is what you will get, it is your subconscious obsession. What you consciously choose to free yourself of makes space for something elegant and positive. Your desire for happiness is right on target, you should crave it. Intense passionate joy is ready to come to you, all you have to do is call it into your life. So what if the world will end? Who cares? Life is forever.
