The brain is a womb.
It is where our higher self is seeded, cultivated, and birthed.
The mind is the consciousness rooted in the womb of the Self that we have cultivated, but it is not held there. It is not limited. The mind is both knowledge and belief; both conscious and unconscious.
The Masters, since the beginning of time, have incarnated to live an example. They live a higher timeline of what is possible with the mind, in contrast with what their society dictates.
So often, society programs the dreams, desires, and purpose of the person.
Our dreams and desires are the driving energy of manifestation; the battery power. From parental pressure to the pressure from society, the child is molded, shaped, and gently pushed into wanting what everyone else wants. They weren’t born this way, but the child quickly shifts for survival, for humans are a flawless miracle of adaptation.
But what if the child doesn’t succumb?
We know what typically happens. Discipline is enacted to enforce “the rules.” Rejection, punishment, and/or manipulation ensues.
But what if, despite tremendous pain and humiliation, they remain resilient - strong but flexible - fighting back in subtle acts of autonomy and revolution by going against the grain, against the crowd, and being themselves?
They may feel all alone, but they never act against their own wishes. This alone takes tremendous strength, self-respect, and unwavering focus. They know what they want out of life and they don't get distracted by what others want. They know how they feel in each moment. They know why they came here, and they know the beauty that is possible. Such a one has the power to change the destiny of humanity.
Were you this kind of child?
If so, how do you heal them?
It is never too late to slip back into the skin of our inner child.
We get to take up the fight where we left off. We are never too old to birth a new dream or passion, or to reinhabit our old one. We are always on time, wherever we are. We always make the right decision when we realize we are the ones in the driver’s seat.
The work is to understand where the root is for our current position, beliefs, or standards.
Is it rooted in the trauma of self-abandonment? Is it what others want? Or - the flip side of the same coin - is it in rebellion?
The work lies in rooting out what is not our own.
The work lies in abandoning false rebellions.
We cannot activate true revolution by merely inhabiting a pitchfork of our trauma.
Where are we triggered? This gives us a start.
How do we behave when triggered? This gives us a tangible goal.
How do we feel in this moment versus how we usually feel?
How do we want to feel?
If we follow a single trigger down to the greater root system, we learn what it is to observe ourselves in our habits. If we question our own desires and motives, we make new habits that include regular self-observation. The habit of self-observation allows us the luxury of refusing to be outraged by what outrages others. It frees us from the boring competition of wanting the same things as others. It allows us to inhabit our own bodies, which plants the seed of self-inquiry within others.
It is just as intoxicating and contagious as public outrage - but more so, as it is empowering. When our trauma needs an outlet and we are tired, it is all too easy to join in the fight already orchestrated by others.
But is it our fight?
Is it how we feel?
Spending time getting to know how we feel by ourselves is as important as education, healthcare, and nutrition. It is a crucial element of a higher society.
Logical, rational debates can only occur when we are well aware of our illogical, irrational selves. Too often, society supports the abandonment of our illogical, emotional selves. But this side of ourselves serves the most critical function: it is the outlet for our creativity. It is the outlet for our imagination, which is highly disregarded but is the vehicle of all creative endeavors and intuitive faculty.
Without the input of our intuition, our logic has nothing to debate: it is abandoned to the ideas of others.
It is left vulnerable: any passing sentiment stated with enough anger can pass for a powerful “hit” and will be accepted by the mind and felt by the body.
If we are not inhabiting our own intuition, we are leaving it vacant to be filled by others. If we are not acknowledging our own range of empathic osmosis, we are left open to soaking up whatever happens to be around us.
We must become aware of our own subtle rainbow.
We are not static.
We are our own colors.
Where did they go?
We do not need the spectrums of others
though we can honor them
as each is unique
and breathes with our purpose.
