“LIFE itself IS the path”
This post’s title is not a new thought or slogan; but while reading a book review, seeing it stated again today struck me as timely for consolidating my own meandering thoughts.
Because what are we ALL experiencing in some way right now? LIFE.
This ‘whatever–it-is’ that we are currently enduring or struggling through, is LIFE itself. It’s the very reason WHY we came here to this dimension of collective turmoil and personal character building. We came to explore the tests and soul-strengthening challenges that this experience called LIFE provides raw ‘Consciousness-Expansion Trainees’—CET’s—that’s YOU and me.
LIFE is like a Boot-Camp for newer souls just learning how to explore and to expand their meager morsels of consciousness provided them at birth for participation in this elaborately-designed testing ground.
“If LIFE is one big test” you might ask, “then can we ever conquer LIFE?”
Well maybe, in a sense. You can conquer your personal fears and learn the daily discipline that LIFE requires for you to succeed (stay alive as long as possible) here in the collective arena.
Although I think more folks are likely asking the opposite question: Can we ever conquer DEATH? Because that question is foremost in nearly everyone’s mind and drives much of humanity’s most egregious behavior. And to that I would also say ‘Well maybe, in a sense,’ but that ‘battle won’ designation may not be quite like you perceive it to be at present.
Your physical body may not survive its deadly duel with DEATH, but as energy-beings, you are allowed to keep the consciousness that you have gained here when you move on to other challenges and further training in higher dimensions of existence; because there are other dimensions far higher than this lower-frequency battlefield through which we currently stumble.
Our situation here is similar to what I told those struggling students in my JC Technical Writing class—this is not a ‘one-and-done’ training situation. You must keep learning and retraining for other more advanced work in the future.
For ALL of us, your current training efforts in this dimension of existence are merely the prerequisite requirements to advancing to more sophisticated consciousness-building challenges that you will eventually face in a higher-consciousness plane.
But WHY is that?
Because ‘LIFE itself IS the path’ leading into your current exploration of ‘Grand Consciousness’ itself. (If I’ve confused you with this reference, see my previous post on Deepak Chopra’s “Are We Our Stories?” from Nov 12th, 2020).
So how do you actually ‘find your own truth’?
You follow your own LIFE Path with an open mind and a closed mouth (to actually ‘hear’ what LIFE has to say to you, when you are willing to listen to it).
Not easily done on either count, I might add, but necessary.
