Choosing what we feel, or the ‘adventure’ of this first week of November, is not about denying or masquerading our emotions.
It is neither about feeling good or adequate. Knowing that life is “what it is” and that it usually throws a lot at us, in just about every shapes, tones and colors.
It is about realizing that, in every moment, we have a choice. The choice to follow our ego and feel victimized, or abused, or deceived, or the choice to let go and give our soul the rein.
Naturally, there are situations and contexts where we are truly victimized, abused or deceived—and that is the moment when we need to speak up and defend ourselves.
What I am referring to is clearly illustrated by this beautiful passage from the Arcturian Council, dated Saturday, November 2nd.
“People often wonder if they are truly awakened because they still have their challenges, their issues, their moments that could be described as very egoic. And we want you to know that once you are awake, your journey has really just begun because now you are conscious, now you are aware that you have a choice. You can choose to know your Divinity or to feel very small and insignificant. You can choose to feel empowered or to feel like a victim. We want to help elevate you out of victimhood status so that you can know yourselves as creator beings. We want you to know that you are in the driver’s seat now, in your lives and in the shift in consciousness.”
And thus being awake often means being aware that we have a choice, again; a choice in terms of how we look at ourselves and how we conceive of ourselves—the victim, the receiver, or the ‘conspirator of good’, the giver of positive energy.
That choice was offered to me a few moments ago. I could have felt insulted by what happened around me, because of something I did casually. Yet, as soon as I realized that choice possibility, I let go of the lower route and chose the ‘conspirator of good’ seat.
It is an easy choice once we are ‘sufficiently’ aware, I believe. Although, as we all know, awakening is not a question of “quantity.” Often times, a challenging situation will present itself and our ego will jump at the opportunity to make us feel bad, or feel victimized.
This choice awareness requires discernment as well as spiritual vigilance, knowing our ego is always happy and willing to set “tricks and tests” along our spiritual path.
May our journey of “growth and discernment” be a magnificent one, dear Ones!
the battle within, amen
