Standards Get Higher: Wonโ€™t Harm Any More

As we look forward to and prepare for the next event in our otherwise-gradual Ascension โ€“ a 4th-chakra heart opening โ€“ I keep hearing in my mindโ€™s ear: The closer to the destination, the narrower the path and the straiter the gate.

If Jesus didnโ€™t say that, I think he shouldโ€™ve. (Is that him laughing back there?)

Because it feels to me that the more I rise with the energies, the more Iโ€™m being squeezed like a wet sponge. I didnโ€™t know I had so much water in me.

My standards keep needing to go higher to match the space Iโ€™m in. Otherwise I feel like Iโ€™ll disgorge all the corrosive acid Iโ€™m carrying around inside โ€“ think Morleyโ€™s chain, what we used to call my gunnysack, my old baggage.

Iโ€™m now at a place where I feel it necessary to stop doing harm to any and all humans. Iโ€™m not ready to go further than that just yet.

But it does show how I feel the standards needing to rise. Buddha might call it tightening up on โ€œthe keeping of the dharma.โ€ I believe Hindus call it โ€œshilaโ€ or morality. In my view, theyโ€™re pointing at the same thing.

What did Ram Dass say a long time ago? โ€œSpeaking the truth used to be a luxury. Now itโ€™s a necessityโ€?

It constantly feels like my dharma or shila needs tightening for me to remain comfortable in these rising energies.

You donโ€™t get to be a grumpy old fart without harming others, in large or small ways, along the way. I have a lot of wreckage behind me, which I need to make amends for. And I also donโ€™t want to exaggerate. Iโ€™m a rather ordinary grumpy old fart.

The squeezed sponge wonโ€™t stay empty for more than a millisecond. I anticipate transformative love filling every nook and cranny as soon as it finds real, lasting, unsuppressed space.

But right now Iโ€™m in the Motherโ€™s creative chaos and it feels like being in the washer/dryer.
