..."IT is always easy to see unconscious patterns within others, but it takes tremendous focus to see and feel IT within ourselves, as we look closer to what drives our passions and emotions, what we see is our conditioned thinking at the pulse of our struggles. Our mind of thoughts always feeds our spirit with whispers of influence, as IT blocks and kills our freedom to feel peace and harmony, keeping us imprisoned within the realm of words and illusion. Thinking of the past or the future is what makes us play roles of ego, instead of expressing our true spirit in public, for life just IS, perfect within IT-self, yet we tend to get suckered into the thoughts that the mind gives off. What is the source of our thoughts, have you ever looked into your own true nature? For our empowerment always arises within that very process of reflection, for the one who lives with a Open EYE, even when living in struggle, knows that all IS right within the world!
The process of self reflection is like shedding our old skin, if we cling to the old patterns we will only continue to suffer within, whereas going with the flow and understanding our own consciousness, speeds up the process of our expanding heart and spirit. We may think we have no control over our impulses and unconscious thinking, but that process is not unlike our breathing, if we can focus on IT, we have THAT control, yet no matter how wise and powerful we are, the control WILL slip away and work on its own, and we don't even notice when that flip of control occurs. Just like when we slip into our dreams at night, we don't notice the transitions, so notice that you don't notice, and suddenly you will notice THAT more in your daily life.
Just as the gods and goddesses sprinkle their essence into human beings, the archetypal unconscious flow of influence is more than just a myth of stereotypes, but a witnessing account of the pantheon of inner forces at work within us all, and just as seeds come from trees, we each have that potential to become a seed maker within ourselves. IT is one thing to talk about it, it is another thing to BE about IT, as that separates those who stare at the peak of a mountain and wonder, versus those who walk the path and discover, for the view from that peak is beyond divine and beautiful, and that is worth all the struggle to get there in the end!" ~Alistar Valadez...
