How do we balance our work lives and our partnerships and our friends and relatives? How do we make time for it all?
I could wrack my brain for hours coming up with advice to myself.
But the truth of the matter is, as I know, in a higher-dimensional space, these matters resolve themselves. There’s no dilemma, as Da Free John said years ago, in the space of the permanently-opened heart (which brings mukti, liberation, sahaja, ascension) and awakened consciousness.
It’s all so very simple. But coming into that space is not very simple.
Once I came into the experience of “real” love, I found I could “surf” on any feeling of love or bliss that came along and excite the divine state within me again. That’s not so much the case at the moment because of stress.
The good news is that we’ll all come into it upon ascension. But we can still create a “growth game” here by pretending that it’s better to have it earlier than later. It’s not. But the game results in growth, expansion, and unfoldment.
If we experience – or, better, realize – any of the divine states like sacred love, bliss, joy, integrity, abundance, peace, or mastery, we immediately see what the prophets and sages have been talking about. They glimpsed or inhabited a higher state of consciousness, the one we’re gradually “ascending” to. (1)
The only path I know to it, and I’m not a spiritual guide, is to cleanse ourselves of our unfinished business (2) and all the other mental baggage we carry and to substitute in its place sacred practices friendly to love and bliss, etc. To open to these spaces and states of being. I think the angels do the rest.
Of course I’m enthusiastic about the subject. I’ve never known a person who, having consciously experienced a higher state of being, temporarily or permanently, did not want to communicate it or see if others could be helped to experience it. Look how many highly-enlightened beings turn around and come back as teachers.
So for me, the main question is not how do I balance work, partnership, and the rest, but how do I release my consciousness from everything that holds it back and allow it to soar?
In that higher-dimensional space lies the answer.
(1) In consciousness only. What happens to the physical world, I can only imagine.
(2) Kathleen has shown me that that may involve, not simply processing, but also apologizing, asking for apologies, and forgiving.
