Do you know how I know I tend to have attention deficit disorders. I’m going against almost all ‘normal’ advice and writing two books at the same time. Now, I didn’t plan it this way, really. As I evaluated what I need to accomplish, I realized I needed to do this. After all, I’m almost always reading fiction and nonfiction books at the same time, so why not write that way? Like I said, though, I did not schedule things this way.
In my writing the last few nights, I have been laying out the premise of my ebook, one which I am writing while working on my novel. I have not mentioned The Fellowship of the Heart, my novel I am rewriting, for awhile. However, the ebook explains my philosophy behind the fiction. So, in a pretty direct way, the guts of my novel are showing.
Two nights ago, I wrote about self-awakening as the foundation on which the rest of one’s life is built. It is not some spiritual exercise to fit in to make one feel better when things get tough. Coming to know Heart provides the basis on which we build life; it is the reason, along with the expression of core Self, we enter into this realm of time and mortality. We live Self and the expression of personal truth in the life purpose we create.
Then, last night I looked at the emotional side of this foundation, the one in which people can know their Heart is speaking to them, affecting them, because they come to the point of asking the big questions of life about who they really are and why they are here. Time to block out all other voices and speak to the Heart.
Now, to address the title idea of the book — although I don’t know the actual title yet — the Grand Unified Theory of Humanity, G.U.T.H.. Hell! It might be the Theory of Everything Humanity. It’s my theory that explains the forces and dynamics observed in humanity. What happens in us and to us individually affects our society, and individual societies and cultures affect nations. What is awesome to me is that we come into this life with an energy of the eternal, the divine, within us, pulsing through us.
It is that which we come here to discover and live out here in time and space. However, we enter this world with the default operating system of ego, one which is suited quite well to keep us alive on an animal level, one which uses an amazing array of strategies to keep us focusing on and preserving self. The conflict arises because we have that energy of eternity, that which I call Heart, circulating in us, which means we have connections to everything outside of self.
Ego works to keep us isolated from all of that which is unnecessary for basic survival; it binds us from entering into the grandeur of our connection to the cosmos. When our minds and souls, the logic and emotions, sense this conflict, we hear those questions arising about self-identity and purpose.
Heart speaks to mind and emotion through the shroud of Ego wrapped around our innermost self. Heart wants us to understand we do have a core Self identity, one which fully recognizes and operates beyond the bounds of survival and carries us into the realm of the infinite. However, it is not some surreal, ethereal journey, but one we can devise, know, and execute in our relatively brief time here every single day.
Therefore, we have responsibility when we hear those manifestations of Heart to consciously respond to them. Speak directly, whether audibly or internally, to Heart. “What are you saying to me?” “Who am I, really?” “If I were to name my core Self, what would it be?” And so many, many more questions. This is the beginning. This is where we connect ourselves with those inner longings of purpose to experience fulfillment, significance, peace, love, and all that goes with these.
Let me make it clear, though. That responsibility is not to me or anyone else. Ultimately, it’s your decision, your joy, your life. But I will tell you that to deny that or fall back time and again to ego rationalizations and responses will keep you in a cycle of upset and discontent or deadness of soul. Choices.
While Ego isolates from all else, Heart connects us, relates us, to the Universe. We can enter a path of growth, awakening, and self-awareness that yields new magic day by day, that gives voice to that energy of eternity residing in us, our core Self.
With all of this as a foundation, the actions and behaviors of life can be analyzed. I plan on doing that in my little primer on the Grand Unified Theory of Humanity.
Questions to consider:
How many times have you asked yourself or simply thought about the following questions?
Who am I, really?
What is my truth?
How do my actions reveal what I really feel and believe?
What would I do with my life if I could do anything?
What is my passion?
Why am I here?
How can I discover answers to any of these questions?
If you have considered any of these questions, I hope that my experiences and writing will give you some guidance. Please read my blog and comment and share your thoughts. I would love to hear from you!
