I understand a lot of things. In fact, I know a lot of things. I’m smart, but I’m no genius. I actually know several geniuses, so I know I’m not one of them. What I don’t know, however, is how I can know and believe that I embody eternal Spirit, yet I practice so little of that power.
I think of this today because it’s Easter and the end of Passover season. The magic and miracle of resurrection is part of this high frequency life energy. I think many dear people underestimate who we are and what we can do. Jesus himself said we would do greater works than he did. Peter walked on the water. Do you think and believe you can. Then, do it.
Do you understand my dilemma? See, I believe that. Not only that but also I believe I could, too. So why don’t I? Should I simply just succumb to mediocrity, say it’s stupid to contemplate such ideas, and not live pretending like I have any such power?
When I consider that alternative, I must conclude a rather nihilistic life philosophy. Does any of life matter? If we don’t have the power to create dynamic life situations, the same power of faith that can perform magic and miracles, then we are at best limited. We must, then, do the best we can, live within limitations, conclude that the smarter and stronger will get what they want, and that when push comes to shove, the strongest will win. We must just accept things as they are, play the hand we’ve been dealt. What are you gonna do?
It’s resignation — desperation confirmed. Hopes, dreams, imagination for making things different don’t mean much. We don’t mean much if we believe like this. You just gotta do what you gotta do and shut up about it.
Yeah, I don’t buy it. We are powerful creators. What throws me is I don’t see results quick enough for my liking, I suppose. But it’s a journey, one I am not willing to resign to mediocrity. One I am not willing to resign to Ego hopelessness. And that’s a distinction I wish to make.
Ego hopelessness attaches to a specific outcome and when we don’t get exactly what we want, we cave in to despair and maybe depression. I reject that. Heart also has a sense of hopelessness, however, but it means we give up specific form and outcomes. We focus on high frequency emotions. This will bring about manifestation.
For instance, we may want love and a meaningful relationship. We may fix our focus on a specific individual — must have him or her. If that doesn’t happen, heartbreak results. Real Heart-motivation, though, might think it could be that one and might think on and pursue him or her, but if it doesn’t work out, someone else will — unquestionably. We are hope-less in the sense of specific things, forms, but not in terms of knowing we will get what we want: happiness. Settling will never make for profound or permanent happiness.
For christians, Easter Day is a proclamation: Jesus was raised from the dead. The reality is that magic and miracles happen every day, and that the real energy for those is not in a body that dies but in eternal Spirit that is our core. For Jews, the Passover season proclaims that when the Israelites left Egypt, death passed over their firstborn children by an act of faith, and they were headed for the promised land. Faith that death held no threat for them, that when steps were taken based on their belief, blessing awaited them. They didn’t know what for sure — no attachment to form — just that they would be free. Freedom from being limited by the bonds of mortality, freedom to act according to an unseeable hope, and freedom to be happy in the reality of magic and miracles.
So, let’s move forward together in Spirit, and lay hold of the power which is our source!
Onward and upward!
