Are you Enough?

What do you lack?

Are you big enough, fast enough, strong enough, rich enough, virile enough?

 

The greatest weapon of mass destruction is not the nuclear bomb; it is our collective belief that we are not enough.  It is the underlying and often unconscious belief of lack that causes us to horde what we do have and seek out at any cost that which we don’t.  If you think that this WMD is not exploding a  gazillion times a day in the fragile landscape of your ego, simply ask the victims of Jerry Sandusky what Penn State University was so in need of that its leaders would put the financial windfall of their football program a head of the lives and safety of children; or ask the Israeli or Palestinian people what they are so desperately afraid of losing  that they would rather systematically destroy their most sacred sites rather than share them with others who hold the exact same square inches of sand sacred.

We are constantly told that we don’t have enough money, enough clothes, enough food, enough sex enough love; enough ways to get on the internet (are you reading this on your smartphone, your tablet or your Mac?).  If you are based in the core belief that you don’t have enough, you never will have enough; no matter how much you have and you will be in a permanent state of dissatisfaction; a permanent state of disillusionment with yourself.  If you and I and everyone else are in a constant state of dissatisfaction we are that much more likely to latch on to that which someone else promises will satisfy us.

It is impossible to believe that one has everything they need in life when you are constantly hearing that you don’t.  If you don’t believe that you have everything that you need you will constantly be searching for that which you don’t have, which is perfectly fine, as long as you are the one deciding what you don’t have enough of.  Have you ever wondered just how much money Colgate spends on research so they can fill endless 30 second spots with stats backed by 4 out of 5 dentists insisting that the new thing-a-ma-jig on their newly shaped bristles will clean your teeth so much better than the tooth brush with the old thing-a-ma-jig you bought 2 months ago? The little blue pill that promises to lengthen your sex might not be so necessary if you weren’t silently emasculated every time Fabio (yes I am dating myself) danced across your TV screen with a cougar clinging to his steroid inflated pecs with one hand and a syringe full of Botox in the other.

Admittedly I am not the most internet savvy cookie in the jar; I simply don’t have the patience to sit in front of a computer for more than 30 minutes or so before my brain begins to start screaming at me.  So when I logged into my small web page this morning and saw that there were 967 comments waiting for approval I wasn’t sure if I should cry or cry.  Alas, 99% of those 967 comments were solicitations to buy porn or pills or poker chips.  Yeehawe!

Why, I wondered am I being inundated with promises and solicitations of sex drugs and money?  Obviously, these are not personal solicitations directly pointed at me; I prefer my sex in the flesh, I haven’t knowingly put any chemicals in my body in years and I’m  not about to start with Cialis, and I don’t play poker!  These are the same solicitations that are in your comment box, in box or spam folder.  These are the same solicitations that slither their way through the matrix of electronic mail playing the hit or miss game with unabashed abandon.  Each query, a ubiquitous download of what you don’t have enough of.  Every time your eye unconsciously scans the subject line, “cheap Viagra” the densest part of your ego registers a hit.  This is not just marketing, this is herding, and this is consensus building.  This is mind control in the most blatantly subversive way.  This is the indoctrination of a belief that whoever you are and whatever you have, it is not enough.  Fear not however, as you don’t have to look very far, everything that you don’t have enough of is right there in your in box; isn’t it?  “Play poker now, get rich quick”.

It is the collective belief that we are not enough that has caused man to conquer, rape and pillage from the beginning of time.  We do it in the name of country, in the name of god, for the sake of family, and most frequently in the name of ego.

Today I am enough.  Today I am content with who and what I am in the world.  Today I am enough.

Are you?

Allowance, Resistance, and Agreeance

Are you trapped in a Resistance based paradigm?

Is your life filled with resistance, strained relationships and situations?

Are the things you are in resistance to most, the things that actually define you most?

For a long time now humanity has been in a resistance based paradigm, for it has been our resistance that has defined us. It has more often than not been the things that we have resisted or opposed that has provided the lens through which we have seen ourselves. We are anti-abortion and anti-death penalty; we don’t eat meat and we don’t believe in god…. Our attachment to resistance is programmed into us from the onset of our earthwalk; as   infants and toddlers we hear no and don’t more than we hear yes and do.  No and don’t are passive forms of resistance that are imposed on our intrinsic drive  to “do”, to push outward, to expand our knowingness with every breath, from the first breath, even if unconsciously so.

We,  like the universe, by the very nature of our continual expansion, are constantly moving outward away from source;  therefore resistance of any kind to anything that is in motion is resistance to the universe itself of which you are a microcosmic expression of the larger macrocosm.   For example, it has taken us a hundred years to learn that building damns, creating physical resistance to the natural flow and movement of water across the surface of the earth, ultimately does more damage than good.  We have spent the last century and a half rerouting water because we thought it would be better for people; when in fact the practice has been devastating to the earth, which ultimately is devastating to people.  Thankfully the trend of dismantling damns and returning water ways to their natural flow has begun in many parts of the world.

To fully experience ourselves in truth we must shift from resistance into allowance, with the understanding that we can be in allowance of all that is while not being in agreeance with all that is.  Resistance in this respect is needing everything and everyone around us to be in agreeance with us; allowance is being so entirely at one with one’s own beliefs and in such truthful resonance with oneself that there is no need to have others be in agreeance with us.  When we allow others simply to be, even if they themselves are not in a place of allowance, there is no intrinsic resistance in you to them; and the likelihood of any conflict arising is dramatically diminished even if you are not in argreeance with them.    It is our ego that wants everyone to be in agreeance with us; it is our truth that wants simply to be allowed, yet that is the very thing we deny others. We want everyone to be in agreeance with us, that we may have support in our belief systems, for our own belief in their veracity is suspect or we would not need any one to support us in them.  It is a vicious cycle that is easily broken simply by coming into the space of allowance. The allowance of all that is, for it simply is.

Just as it is the collective human ego that believes we know better than does the earth itself how best to disperse water across it, it is the collective human ego that in it’s fragmented state believes the path to wholeness is through a unification of belief systems or sameness in our expression of self; when in fact the most direct path is through the allowance of all that is.

The Expansion of Consciousness

Are you unconsciously resisting the inevitable expansion of your  own consciousness?

The universe is expanding. So too is your consciousness.

How do you know your consciousness is expanding?  You are reading this blog; therefore it is expanding.

20 years ago “blogs” didn’t exist; they were not yet in human consciousness.  Human consciousness had not yet expanded enough to unveil the information necessary to create the technologies to support the expression that we call “blogging”.  It is true, matter is neither created nor destroyed, it is simply rearranged in new ways that we are suddenly able to recognize as possible,  as our consciousness expands.  The materials used to build the very computer on which I am typing this blog have always existed, human consciousness had simply not yet expanded enough to see how things needed to be arranged to create all the pieces that come together to create this computer.   Resistance to or denial of this expansion in any way is futile, for as the universe expands out in its inevitable expression of creation, so too does your conscious mind, for the two are inextricably linked.  Resistance, which often looks like insistence that your way is the only way,  frustration, intolerance, judgement, anger, and fear;  impedes the natural flow of energy. The stagnation of energy over prolonged periods of time, even multiples of lifetimes creates density.  That which is dense falls to the densest aspect of our being, the physical, which eventually creates illness in the physical.  The opposite of resistance is allowance.  Allowance becomes easy when we are in our truth, for when we are in our truth there is nothing to resist, and thus our consciousness expands freely.   Everything that will ever be created already exists just in a different configuration.  Imagine then if you could expand your consciousness, to consciously access information that already exists!

Living in love and light!
