Change is inevitable. All things evolve over time. All things undergo the natural process of a lifetime, both in nature and in human life, changing incrementally every day. Acceptance of change can take a lifetime, but one day it is no longer unseen to even the most avoidant eye. Change is life, life is change. And yet there is something that remains the same, the spirit of everything, which persists throughout all the changes that matter undergoes. And that is what evolves into new life. Pay attention to your spirit as it seeks to guide you each day through the inevitable changes of life. It knows what to do, how to be, and where to go.
When the body suffers look to Spirit for answers. Are you doing too much? Giving too much? Asking too much? Who takes care of you? Sometimes something is wrong in the body because you’ve been ignoring it. Other times there is a need for your Spirit to get your attention, to wake you up and remind you of your mission. What is your mission? You will find that in your everyday life, among the glories and mundanities of daily living. It’s usually very simple, like a call to be compassionate, grateful, or forgiving. Find your mission in life and you will find your Self.
In times of great personal need turn inward and ask your spirit for help. No personal problem ever occurs without the involvement of your spirit, for everything that happens to you also happens to your spirit. You are one and the same, and where you may not have a solution to a problem your spirit will.
Discipline of the body is all well and good but don’t forget about the spirit, the part of you that resides in your body and makes life possible. Learn how it works within you, what it needs, and what matters to it. Just as your body needs food, exercise, play and rest, so does your spirit. Its food is imagination, its exercise is exploration, its play is synchronicity and its rest is meditation. Pay attention to it as much as you pay attention to your physical body so you can get to know it, incorporate it into your life, and enjoy a new experience of being human.
Everything is possible, particularly if we become our fuller selves.
As in quantum physics, human beings are both particles and waves. As particles we are solid separate material objects, living in a material world. In our wave state we are energetic spirit beings, residents in a greater world of pure spirit energy. As Don Juan Matus put it, “Of course we are solid beings, but we are first energetic beings.”
The solid dimension of our being, the world of everyday life, is highly predictable. As physical beings, we exist in the Newtonian world of mechanical being, whose laws can predict our entire lives. Astrology charts, I Ching readings, and Human Design readings can predict, with a high degree of accuracy, who we are, how we will behave and, in effect, the course of our lives. However, they are not absolute. Consciousness enables transcending even the most basic programs, in an instant.
These readings tap into the programs, loaded into our subconscious minds, that run our physical being. Thus, for instance, one’s genetic history is given high ranking in the hierarchy of physical programs that determine one’s health. Thus, a history of heart disease or cancer in one’s ancestry may predispose one to an encounter with these diseases. This automatic unfolding of genetic programs may determine one’s physical life.
At the energetic level of one’s being, thought creates reality. Thus, as with placebo, if one doesn’t believe they will have a problem, they can potentially override the automatic unfolding of a powerful genetic program of disease. This Spirit directive then changes physical manifestation.
Similarly, if one’s ancestral history is replete with failed relationships, these inherited programs may influence one’s ability to engage in successful intimate relationships. If one is able to resolve or detach from these ancestral dramas, at the energetic level of their being, they are then able to suggest to their subconscious mind new programs that free their ability to experience relational love.
The energetic level of one’s being is the transpersonal dimension. At this level we carry our phylogenetic history (including animal and cellular), our past lives (in human and nonhuman form), and our relationships with energetic beings in infinity. The transpersonal dimension is also the true home of the mind, which connects to the physical brain that enacts its spirit intentions in daily life.
The transpersonal dimension is also the dimension that houses our greater Spirit self, of which the ego is a subset that manages the affairs of daily life. When we access our Spirit self we also gain access to the wisdom gained through an eternity of lives. Those lives are members of our soul group, which include all our past lives, and are interconnected in the hologram of all life.
We access this transpersonal dimension in dream life, as well as through other methods that allow the ego to connect with its greater Spirit in non-ordinary states of reality. These non-ordinary states are accessed through shamanic journeys, like recapitulation, through the utilization of brainwave entrainment practices such as Hemi-Sync, through yoga practices, visions, trauma, prayer, through the use of substances or psychedelic medicines (requiring proper clinical supervision), and through intent (by directly instructing the subconscious mind).
When we integrate our solid physical selves within our greater energetic Spirit we open to freedom from inevitability. At this level we can override—through resolution—all the programs that determine the course of our present lives. This is a formidable challenge, but it is possible.
Our world now is banking on us collectively reaching the energetic dimension of being where we can freely choose our destiny. Nothing is truly absolutely determined.
The deepest truth is that the future cannot be fully known, especially if we awaken to the power of choice beyond what every day seems increasingly inevitable. But for that to happen we must wake up to the fullness of who we really are!
Begin with the self. You alone can have tremendous impact upon the collective consciousness of our time.
