Stories Keep Us in Suffering

 

 

I really and truly would like to understand if I even need to create a story in order to be happy and peaceful.  I mean what or who are we as a species…why does everyone have to suffer at times in their life?  Suffering for me comes at times in small ways and then there are times that it comes in a huge wave of emotion!  My dear I AM can you help to understand what my innerheart is trying to convey here?

I AM:  Awe, your title says it all my dear one!  Once you begin to get a feeling for the many ways your thots and stories keep you in suffering, you’ve actually started to tap into something that has a much greater significance.

Me:  In what way?

I AM:  You can use your thots and stories to widen your view of life.  Any way that you make a construct out of life , any way that you come to conclusions in your mind about “what is” or “what was” or “what will be”, you are narrowing your experience of life.  These are all ways of which you argue with life..

Me:  Lost me there I AM!! Why do you calls this arguing with life?  Are we not suppose to understand who we are in this game of life by questioning the what is, what was or what will be?

I AM:  Any time you argue with what was, what is or what will be, you limit your ability to experience the vastness of who you are.  There’s no way around it.  It doesn’t matter what happened, or how cruel someone was, or how unfair something was.  It may have been all of those things and the pain may be very deep and real, but when you have a mental resistance, when you say something should or should have not happened, you are arguing with life.  You lose every single time…..and suffering wins!

Me:  Then how do we conduct ourselves in a way that can always keep us centered in calmness and still be able to speak our truth?

I AM:  Do you really have a truth  to speak dear one?  I hear so many on your planet say this is “my truth” all you really have our stories that your mind has decided to be the “truth”.  Why is it you cannot just be open minded about all and just accept all “as is” ? 

Me:  I am open minded…I am not following you…

I AM:  When your minds start to open, you are no longer in a constant state of evaluation and judgment.  Naturally, then your senses open and you can really see what is before you.  Your eyes open in different ways , your hearing opens in a different way, your emotions open , your hearts open to all of existence.  Open-mindedness allows you to embrace the nature of your experience.  This does not mean you have to like every experience that you have.  There are experiences (stories) that are painful; there are experiences that are unpleasant.  Open-Mindedness doesn’t mean that you’re opening to just the good parts of life; it means you’re opening to everything.  This my dear one is when you discover a type of inner still-ness, an inner stability, that vast unchanging expanse that is at the heart of everything.  You see dear ones, your “stories” are what you base your life on.  We suggest, to every story that you find to be of disharmony to you and cause you some sort of suffering, that you change your perspective on how the story is being told. 

Me:  So what I am hearing is that Life is just a story and if the story is not harmonious then change the story? 

I Am:  No, don’t change the story…allow the story to be…but, don’t allow the story to define YOU>>>>> All your stories really are preprogrammed from birth..what you saw and felt from your environment..parents,, teachers …other children,…society…We say, ”  learn to be in the stillness of all and truly listen and feel “who you are!” 🙂

Good News and the not so Good News

How does one go about balancing their e-motions when they receive good news and/or not so good news..news that suddenly makes you feel that the heaviness that life sometimes places upon us with different circumstances ( good news) , now seems lighter… and then again the news that comes along when you think life is floating along so well and then suddenly an occurance takes place that puts a pit in your stomache. ( not so good news).   Inside me I know that these feelings of joy and sorrow is great and all, but i feel the high/low will be replaced with back to same o same o…How do I balance my emotions so that i do not feel the sudden dip in the wave of emotions ?

Voice:  You will serve yourselves well when you strive to maintain a balanced outlook whether you are confronting great joy or great sorrow. Intensely emotional circumstances can throw your lives for a loop, making you feel as if the world will never be the same again. But all situations, no matter how fraught with feeling, eventually wind down, becoming just another part of the status quo. When you make the most of your emotions while recognizing that your circumstances will eventually pass, you do your part to maintain the internal equilibrium you have worked so diligently to achieve. Little can put you off balance, absorbed as you are in the knowledge that stability can be everlasting if you let it. So don’t allow your reactions to overwhelm you , but take pleasure in good news without disregarding other aspects of your existence.

In other words, what I am telling you is, don’t allow the overwhelming joy of good news or not so good news to be bigger than YOU..because you are JOY, not the news !

Should we feel “Guilt” ?

I talk to many who go through their lives thinking they should of said or did that to someone, they would have been better off for it..  They actually feel “guilty” for something they said or did or they didn’t say or do to someone.  So voice (s)  what is the reason for feeling “GUILT ?”

Voice:  Why is it your human minds must harbor un-neccessary emotion …Guilt is nothing more than the lack of learning how to NOT be in control of situations.  We say that you each came here to learn your own lessons and NO ONE can control the outcome of your lessons..NO ONE !!!!!   You may think you are helping someones life situation by being there for them, but in reality you help hinder their growth.  Now we are not saying that you should not help each other when the other “ask” for your help or advice on anything, but do not allow yourself to get lost in the other persons life path choices without their consent…When one does this, this is where you allow the energy of “guilt” to seep into your consiousness.

You all came here to experience, experience and experience !!!!!  How can you allow yourselves to even feel guilty by your experiences ?  With your experiences, comes your lessons and with your lessons, comes your WISDOM…We say wow…what a Gift!!  So remove the word or feeling of GUILT from your thot process…you will be better off for it..

With love in our hearts and a twinkles in our eyes, the voice 🙂
