Let me just remind you that this river of your life, this undertow that keeps you in place and playing by the rules while the seasons change and your face grows old with worry is all a construct of your own making. There is no point to argue this because it has to be, but it’s so easy to forget. One could say that the sun is always shining regardless of how we interpret the weather and the sun is not concerned about this but is waiting patiently to see if we notice. It has to be so because otherwise nothing would happen at all.
There is no Intelligence that has any interest in keeping us confused or in keeping us any way whatsoever. We’ve been given a play book and there it sits, on the coffee table collecting dust, while we fret and wonder why things are the way they are and continue to try harder at playing by the wrong rules.
That’s ok, you can do anything you want and, actually, that’s the point. Similar to the differences between “western” and what most people refer to as “alternative” medicine, one can invest great amounts of energy in treating symptoms or in eliminating causes. Same energy invested but with vastly different results. Act or react, I think you know the difference.
Why doesn’t everyone do the same thing, have the same experience, or even seem to live on the same plane as one another? Because they don’t, in fact, live on the same plane but the only difference from one to the next is an understanding and practical application of the levels and rules of the game. Yeah, that’s right, game. Life’s not a mystery, it’s a very sophisticated game and it will run us like pawns until we remember that it is our game. Notice I use the word, “remember”, because life was never anything else, but again, so easy to forget, so easy to be too afraid to play, so easy to stay caught in the undertow of our own design.
I’m talking to myself as much as anyone. If you can’t figure out where all these obstacles keep coming from, take it up with the boss, look in the mirror. If moving forward frightens you, that fear will throw up every kind of roadblock your infinitely colorful mind can come up with to reinforce the validity of your misconception.
An architect, a real architect, has no need for fear because they understand the rules, or the “rule”, as it were.
Everyday, you create your life.
