How we start this journey
REPOSTED FROM CRT 2013
This blog won’t make much sense to those who have their eyes shut tight. For those that do not wish to awaken this time around they shut their eyes tight and keep their fingers in their ears. They get frustrated or angry when we speak to them directly about this stuff or when they read things like this blog (if they even get that far, most don’t). Their ego runs wild and calls us “failures”, “disappointments”, “crazy” and so on and so forth. But for those of us that are awakening we search out these types of things to confirm what we felt all along, that there is something in this life that we are supposed to be doing that has nothing to do with the outward “gratification” of wealth and fame.
How do I know the above.. well for one I’ve been there. We all start out with our eyes shut, it is part of our journey. Somewhere along this journey though we start to open them. There are things in my life that could have precipitated this, when they happened they made me go “whoa, what was that” but after that I would close my eyes again and try and tune it out. This worked for a bit but I’ve always been pretty curious about “new age” type stuff (I put that in quotes because that is what we call it now in a way to dismiss it from being “real”, this is actually quite old stuff that is written about in all ancient texts, but when we have our eyes shut we deny that).
I now know there were a bunch of times when things popped up that could have started me on this journey much sooner. Like most though, I chose to ignore them, mostly out of fear. We learn along the way that it really boils down to two things: fear and love. It is amazing out of touch we are with our feelings, we don’t even realize that for the most part there are really only two, fear and love. I’m not saying there aren’t things like anger, frustration, envy, greed and so on. I’m saying that if you delve far down under all those things you will find fear, it is at the root of our ego and something we one must first recognize and second must weed out of ourselves if we wish to continue on the path.
One of the best teachers I found for this part is Sean Webb over at http://iamspirituality.com/ . I found him about 3 or 4 years ago and while I have read others I was never really ready to continue down the path until him. He taught me a ton about emotions and where they come from and why. I was able to start recognizing the triggers, the emotions and why my ego was doing what it was doing. He does an amazing job at explaining them in his Body, Mind, Spirit model and I highly recommend taking a look at his website and podcasts if you are having problems even identify emotions or the part your ego plays in them. If you aren’t having issues I recommend him anyway, it seems the more information and tools we have the easier it is to navigate on this journey.
