We live in a crazy world. Such words have never rang as true as they do today. And as author Kinky Friedman once wrote “if you want to get through it with your body and soul even a little bit intact, you might as well be crazy yourself”. That may sound like a comedic punchline, however such sentiment has been echoed by many an absurdist prescribing the embrace of the absurdity of our world and the transcending of it by doing so as the only way to function well in it. And there is an abundance of absurdity to be embraced, constantly tugging at our heart strings and yanking at our mind streams. How else are we to navigate this constant barrage of absurd inputs and influences. We haven’t been equipped by evolution with the proper tools to withstand the biological and chemical impact this imposes on our minds and bodies.
Another aspect of our absurd world is the constant dependency on and worship of the ego. What is the ego you may ask? The ego is the artificial construct and energetic amalgamation that exists in your Self, created from the multiple levels of informational and energetic inputs you received from your parents, family, culture and environment (including from past lives to a certain degree). In other words, it is a conglomerate of conscious and unconscious ideas, beliefs and patterns that translate into your conscious and unconscious thoughts, actions and behavior. And unfortunately, we need this ego to function in our egoic society built on egoic levels of consciousness and pursuits. How else are you to fit into the collective egoic puzzle? But then the questions is, do you want to? You may say yes and continue to mold your egoic muddy puddy until it conforms to expectations from self and others, or you may say no and go to work on clearing the muddy puddy-ness of it out of your multidimensional “plumbing” system. If you do, you may start to realize that clearing out your "pipes" allows for more and more of the waters of your Soul to flow and express through you.
At first you will start getting acquainted with this flow. Before you know it you will simply be “in it” until finally you realize that you ARE it. This is a long term process that may sound simple but it is not even in the same vicinity of easy. Yet, I would say it is worth the time and effort you put into it as well as the degrees of allowance and surrender necessary for it. The caveat is that you start to become a round peg in a square world and you begin to feel as though you no longer fit in any of the square holes you once did. And that is to be expected. The good news is that nowadays, unlike in the last couple of decades, more and more people are becoming rounder and rounder, therefore round holes are forming across the planet that embrace your newly discovered or expertly crafted roundness. This is an aspect of levels of awakening I referred to in the first post of this blog. So there is hope for our world, albeit none to spare.
One of the foundational aspects of consciousness that initiates and sustains this internal shift away from the ego and towards the soul is an expanded state of awareness that encompasses the whole Self instead of an awareness that is trapped within mental confinements. An analogy would be connecting to the light of awareness lit within the living room of your mind or connecting to the light of awareness that is the sun shining on the whole house. That analogy can be taken further if we say that part of the work is opening up the blinders to let more sunlight in, which in turn will start exposing the stuff hidden under the rug, inside the closet and down in the basement (all metaphorical levels of unconscious) . And that's not even mentioning the hatch on the floor of the basement that takes you into your "cave system". One of the things to realize is that no matter how much or where the sunlight is shining on, the sunlight is permanent and immutable. It will be shining on even when there is no more house.
Also realize that your true Self is both the flow of the waters of energy consciousness of the Soul emanating from the Ocean of Oneness as well as the eternal sunlight of awareness that shines on all manifested things, including the ocean itself. So for now simply allow this internal shift away from the ego and towards the Soul to continue to take place naturally where your incarnate conscious self is becoming more aware of the Light of Awareness and allowing more and more of the waters of the Soul to gain expression through your multidimensional "plumbing" system (chakras and all) rather than the muddy puddy of the ego sticking to it. And recognizing that same process in others and come together in support of each other, since together is the only way we will make it through the eye of this needle.
