Expansion is full of surprises.
We ‘expect the unexpected.’
And we do accept that ‘change is all there is.’
We embark on the ascension path responding to a calling from the heart. Really, there’s no other way to describe it.
And those of us in direct training have been fortunate enough to be in a shared space together, receiving timeless teachings on our path of personal ascension.
“When the student is ready,
the teacher appears.”
We took the plunge, made the cut,
and here we are—serious students.
We use the word expansion to describe the process of inviting real and lasting change into one’s life.
In order for this to happen, the personality is systematically dismantled. The personality of course being who we thought we were.
‘Who we thought we were’ is a personality driven by ego.
Many have spoken and written about this over time—one of the most notable modern day teachers being Eckhart Tolle.
We speak in terms of who we thought we were as we’re coming to understand more and more the depth of the work required when one makes a commitment to dismantle the old self while in the process of creating ourselves anew.
This is the ‘personal’ part of personal ascension.
We’ve been writing lately about our mental programming, the fact that we have all fully identified with programming which has been fed to us across lifetimes.
We will speak at length and in detail when we begin our podcasts on our Subscriber Area about exactly how this has been accomplished.
Back to the topic of expansion.
Let’s just say the personality does not like it.
For some of us, it has been impossible to say no to the ascension path—we are like moths to a flame, the heart’s calling is so strong.
But our minds, honestly, don’t like the idea when we’re faced with real expansion. The kind that changes us forever. The kind that unlocks the doors to our souls’ evolution as infinite beings who are living on this planet, pretending to be human, deeply and intricately programmed, in the year 2014.
“The mind offers tremendous resistance to the things that have the most potential to move us forward on the journey of the soul.”
That’s a fact.
And if we want to ascend, honestly, we just deal with it.
Fascinating—the serious study of the mind—especially when we’re able to study it with some semblance of neutrality, which requires practice.
It’s very interesting to observe that there are times that our teachers invite us to expand and the mind actually sees this as just the opposite—the mind sees it as narrowing. It sees it as restrictive. This is because the last thing the mind wants is for the patterning to be fully seen and for us to then step right through it and become a higher version of ourselves.
“We are infinite multidimensional beings experiencing ourselves in these bodies. The programming is finite.”
When our divine selves begin to emerge and look upon the programming, it is the beginning of the end for the illusory reality in which we’ve been living. Choosing to do this on an ongoing basis is a commitment to true expansion.
Within the now moment, which is all there is, there are no limits to what we can create.
As we invite higher versions of ourselves in, our multidimensional pieces, we begin to see the powerful creators we all are.
All our old definitions of self are false. None of the limitations we have imposed upon ourselves are real. They only exist in our heads.
In any given moment, we can transform our experience.
With a choice.
It does not have to be something we ‘work on’—a process.
It literally is a breath away.
And then our reality changes.
This is not airy fairy talk. It is very real and if we ponder it, the implications for the journey of the soul are immense.
We can turn an unpleasant situation around in a moment. We can simply make another choice about ourselves and those around us. It’s magical really—we have experienced over and over again that a ‘not cool’ situation can be transformed in a heartbeat.
It’s a powerful experience.
We’ll get it eventually. I mean, get that it is actually very real. The next step is of course to learn to not create ‘uncool’ situations in the first place.
Love and patience—they are required on the path. Our teachers offer these to us. We would do well to offer ourselves and one another the same.
We can choose to see things from a higher perspective.
Ascended life invites us into this space everyday.
In every moment.
Ascended life holds out for us the highest version of ourselves and invites us to step into it. And they teach us by example how to do this with each other.
Filled with gratitude in this moment.
