Good morning & good evening, dear Ones,
As we move further into the last four months of 2021, it is a good time to start thinking about what this tumultuous year brought. Autumn is, after all, a time of harvest.
What are we going to harvest?
And is it feasible to harvest a loss?
A loss of ego, perhaps? One that is definitely not quantifiable, and one that may seem unappealing to many still immersed in the material world.
The excerpt below made me reflect on some of the losses I experienced in my life; primarily people, family members who transitioned, or relationships that seem strong at one point and that eventually vanished.
Reflecting on the loss of one’s ego is a different adventure, isn’t it?
And if we lose some ego, does this mean we gain in some other area of our being?
As I write, the image that forms in my mind is that of an hourglass, an emptying of one side and a filling of the other. A transfer of some sort. Knowing that it is possible to turn the hourglass around and revert the process, so to speak.
Could this image be applied to the dance between our ego and our higher self?
And what are we, in the end, harvesting?
More compassion, more love, less waddling in self-misery?
True, the list can be long and I will let you reflect on your own.
“Identifying as an infinite, eternal, formless being of light and love” feels appealing, I must add, as the post suggests.
See you on Thursday!
“You are meant to grow and become, and the process of your evolution is through the realization that nothing else really matters. That is why you experience loss; that is why you experience the break-up, the loss of money, home, possessions, even your youth. You continue to lose more the longer you move through time and space there on Earth, which eventually helps you to come to peace with the fact that you were never meant to cling to these illusions in the physical in the first place. It was something that you were taught to do. You were taught to identify as a race, religion, nationality, gender and so on, and as those things are becoming less important to the awakened collective, there is push back.
People who are still clinging want you to cling as well. They want you to have national pride, a religion, an easily-identifiable gender, and so on. The way of the ego is to cling, to attach, to assign meaning to the meaningless, and the way of the higher self is to be present, to care not about form, about structures, about made-up ideas, like a country, and instead to be more unconditional love, to show more compassion, and to create from the beauty that is all around the higher self. This is essentially what you expect to do after you ascend, but you are in this transitional phase right now where you are stripping away the identities of the ego in order to become your higher self, and those of you who have done a lot of that work already can begin to identify as your higher self right now.
You don’t have to wait for a solar flash, an event, three to however many days of darkness that are being talked about, and so on. You don’t have to wait for any of it to occur outside of you in order for you to decide that you do want to identify as an infinite, eternal, formless being of light and love. And as you make your expressions about that feeling that you have cultivated within yourself, you light up to others, and then others will be more interested in what you have than the shiny new car, the big house, the luxurious clothing and other items that they have, and they will want you to teach them how to find that place inside where they too can have inner peace and a sense of satisfaction just from existing.”
