Chuck’s Place: Right Attitude

Waking up to the news of the world today, the synchronicity that presented itself was this quote from THE MOTHER.*

“If, in the presence of circumstances that are about to take place, you can take the highest attitude possible—that is, if you put your consciousness in contact with the highest consciousness within reach, you can be absolutely sure that in that case it is the best that can happen to you. But as soon as you fall from this consciousness into a lower state, then it is evidently not the best that can happen, for the simple reason that you are not in your very best consciousness. I even go so far as to affirm that in the zone of immediate influence of each one, the right attitude not only has the power to turn every circumstance to advantage but can change the circumstance itself. For instance, when a man comes to kill you, if you remain in the ordinary consciousness and get frightened out of your wits, he will most probably succeed in doing what he came for; if you rise a little higher and though full of fear call for the divine help he may just miss you, doing you a slight injury; if, however, you have the right attitude and the full consciousness of the divine presence everywhere around you, he will not be able to lift even a finger against you…”

“I have had innumerable examples of the power of right attitude. I have seen crowds saved from catastrophes by one single person keeping the right attitude. But it must be an attitude that does not remain somewhere very high and leaves the body to its usual reactions. If you remain high up like that, saying, ‘Let God’s will be done,’ you may get killed all the same. For your body may be quite undivine, shivering with fear: the thing is to hold the true consciousness in the body itself and not have the least fear and be full of the divine peace. Then indeed there is no danger. Not only can attacks of men be warded off, but beasts also and even the elements can be affected.”

Be so empowered,

Chuck & Jan

Ground yourself. Even as you seek connection with spirit, even as you seek to explore your dreaming body, stay connected to the earth. In-body you reside during this lifetime and it is in-body that your lessons are learned. Stay grounded and take command of your lessons so that your dream journeys may make sense as complements to your in-body experiences and then all parts, body and spirit, will be in synch, working to advance that which is most meaningful: YOU! Stay grounded so that you get it right this time around, and so that when your spirit soars it will know what its doing and why, lessons completed.

Find solace in knowing that you do have a primary purpose. Perhaps it is to become yourself more fully, to become more fully independent, more fully grounded in your solitary journey within the duality of body and soul, in the physical and in the spiritual. Such a journey is profound indeed. Look each day toward deeper grounding in and alignment with this purpose. Search no longer for meaning but find it in everything you do and everywhere you turn. For that is where it exists, all around you and in every moment. Journey onward and yet realize you have already found, for that is the journeyer’s truth, coming in the stillness of a moment of solitude. What you seek has already been found, within.

Get grounded. Accept that you are a human being who makes mistakes and is not perfect. And yet accept also your nonhuman self that is perfect, that does not make mistakes, and yet whom you must learn to know. Get grounded in your human life and yet also get together with your spirit self in a mostly non-grounded way. Explore your other half and find out who you really are and why you are really there. There is a very special, very personal reason. Seek to discover it, work with it, and grow beyond it. Enjoy the company of your other half and find out what’s really going on!

Stay grounded in knowing that you are well prepared for this journey, that you have been expecting this moment for a long time, and that this is just the unfolding of your life already lived. As you relive it now check on what you missed the first time. Notice the intensities and the disappointments, the highs and the lows, the joys and the pains, and remember it all well, for this is the last time you will relive it. Now, as you move on into the next phase of your unfolding already-lived life, know that you are ready for that too. It’s all about getting what you didn’t get the first time and calmly accepting all that once was and all that currently is, including yourself in the great scheme of it all, living your life. And remember the most important thing of all, that you survived everything, that you actually made it through to a successful outcome, in whatever form that took. Now that is something to look forward to!
