Dear Playmates, it is my pleasure to greet you today in whatever state you are in. I do not hope for you. I do not condescend to you. I invite you to meet yourself in whatever you are feeling, to see yourself in whatever you are noticing and know you are loved and worthy.
Today's invitation is to topple hierarchical constructs, inner and outer!
You are no better and no less than anyone that you share this earth with, no matter your station in life, what you believe, how you feel, what you have been conditioned with. Be you man, woman, a mix of both or a vegetable or mineral. Be you vegetarian, pizza consumer or one who subsists solely on sunlight. If you are reading this, you are HUMAN and that is just awesome!
No matter what you acquire or release, you are here and you are deserving. Of what? Of whatever you choose. Love, respect, safety, opportunity, it is in your Power to create any of these; it is all available when you open up to the full magnitude of Who and What you are.
And Who are you?
You are oscillations of power and potential. You are realities unfolding, collapsing waves of consciousness capable of transcending time and limitation. That is who you are and what you are capable of is anything that you set your mind and Heart to!
Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to integrate your energy and aspects of personalty into a cohesive, dynamic functioning Adult, waking to the full experience of Wholeness.
For sometime I have cringed, whenever I hear someone talk about destroying the ego, or using language to put it down or to label it as a, less than aspect. In the same way, I cringe when people use the term, higher self, setting it up to be some greater than aspect. To me, these are both divisive constructs that set up even more compartmentalization in our already fragmented consciousness.
What if, there was nothing Above you to access?
What if there was nothing Below you to overcome?
What if all you need for Self realization, for Self actualization for FULL Maturation, is within and all around you, right now in this moment!
I have noticed that when I am either floating about with my head in the clouds focusing on lofty notions that I tend to trip and stumble on those around me, as well as my own humanity. I only create a below by pretending that I am above something else! What a trip! Actually, this is exactly when I do, usually trip. Now in compartmentalization zone, I might say, "Oh, my ego is tripping me up and dragging me down!" So convenient, but such a lot of bullshit. I am the only one who can divide myself and so therefore, I am the only one who can make myself Whole, or more accurately, who can come fully into the realization and living actualization of my Wholeness!
No higher self, no guru, no one can choose to do this for me, except me! And I need all of me to do it. I need all my emotions online and fully functioning to provide the correct guidance. I need to recognize that each one is valuable in its own right and has a purpose in any situation and that they work together for me to be a fully functional human being.
So that brings me to something else that really gets my goat, so to speak...These hierarchical emotional, vibrational charts. Joy is 1000 and anger is a 20 or what the fuck ever!
No! no! NO!!!
Each emotion is valuable in the appropriate situation. You need anger, you need disgust, you need sad. For a little basic education on this idea, watch the Disney Pixar movie, Inside Out. You will see that all of the emotions serve a purpose, Joy thinks she can run the show all the time but when any of the other emotions go offline, so does the little developing human!
You need every single big and small aspect of you feeling welcome at the Inner Council to grow and develop. Those parts that get called ego are just aspects of personality that are developing at different rates, do you condemn and attack them, or do you help them along and keep updating preferences and reactions until everyone is welcome at the table and all the Aspects are contributing Council Members. That is what Adulthood is! That is what this invitation is. Stop looking for a God to reward or punish you and take some accountability for how you feel, what you think and how you act. Confront those things that make you feel small and find out where they stand and what is their purpose. Never assume that the solution to any problem is the eradication of some aspect of you or an other, for that matter.
People who know their own Value, are not threatened by others, for they can see the Value in ALL. They have no need for hierarchical institutions, be those political, religious, legal or otherwise. People who KNOW their own VALUE respect the values of others and the values of LIFE.
The word of the day is INTEGRATION!
May all your Parts find their way Home. May your own Heart open in patience and curiosity and acceptance of every aspect of your Being. May you grow in Power Wisdom and Love as you embrace all that you are and fully activate your powers of Discernment.
May you discover the full measure of your learn to value all your parts as One.
