Let Go of Duality
Right and wrong, bad and good. Everything and nothing. I have let go of right and wrong. These are dualities. To believe in them seems judgmental. Bad and good are a little harder to let go of. I like to use good. I say, That’s good. Almost everything seems good.
And then there’s a shooting. How can I say that an event like that is good? I can’t. I can say that God has a plan. That’s a little like saying that everything has a silver lining. I can say that the incident was tragic. If I let go of judging events as good, then the incident is neither good nor bad. It just happened. But it feels bad. I can tell myself a what-if story.
What if the people hurt in the incident were angels who agreed to participate in the incident so that the world would be free of hate? What if the experience of the incident caused the bottoming out of hate? And what if as a result of the incident, hate no longer existed? What if the incident was neither good nor bad? It was just painful. What if it was not painful? That’s a what if story.
I think that ultimately it is about choice. I tend to lock the good in place with a story. A what-if story makes it easier. And then I let go of the bad. That generally works for me. I tend to follow the easy path of the good. I am grateful for the good. I have a harder time being grateful for the bad. I know that with pain, if you aren’t grateful for it, it doesn’t leave. When you are in gratitude, that vibration transforms into something else.
What if the same is true for something that we judge as bad? How can I be in gratitude for the event? I choose to struggle with that one. Does appreciation work better? Yes, for me it does. First, I allow. Then I appreciate. And then I am grateful. And then comes celebration.
Sometimes we say that the easy path is faster than the harder, dark path. But in truth there is no difference. The hard path (evil path) can be an instant transformation also. I think of Billy Finger in The Afterlife of Billy Finger. He had instant Bliss in Heaven with God. There was no processing for him in Heaven. He didn’t have to go through a transition. Others who have experienced near-death experiences say that they have met their deceased friends and families on the other side in Heaven. Even when those friends and family members thought that they were going to Hell.
We sometimes use the faster way and sometimes the slower way to justify our choice. In truth, there is no faster or slower. There is repeat, however, until we learn and don’t have to repeat. This makes the direct path of no repetition seem faster. Our paths circle back in repetition until they spiral upward.
I rolled the contraction of sadness into Joy and noticed that there was no difference. There is no difference between sadness and joy. Then how do we choose? I choose fun and joy. I ask, what would feel fun? And then I choose that.
Techniques to Develop Awareness
- Watch your heartbeat. Then join your heartbeat with the heart of Archangel Michael. Watch this heartbeat. Feel it. When the world starts to pulse, let in the heart of God. The whole world is pulsing. Let this pulse be the size of the room. Then, let it be bigger, as big as the Universe. Let go of everything. Be in awareness.
- To develop awareness, say, I am aware of this feeling (or thought) in my environment. What would I like to choose to think?
