Continuing from yesterdays post it is important to recognize that you can experience personality and soul at the same time. Have you ever had a broken heart and yet know that everything was unfolding perfectly? Or perhaps you can relate to the feeling of being cold and exhausted yet somehow completely content. This duality of feeling is the experience of soul and personality at the same time.
“… no matter what our difficulties may be, we recognize that there is a deep untroubled stream flowing below all surface troubles and that we are of one substance with that stream. The soul knows no difficulties.” – James Thornton
With awareness, we can consciously stay connected to the soul during difficult times. This shifts our experience and allows for greater understanding and more ease as we flow with the discomfort. Less resistance means less suffering and a sense of security because we know that everything is OK.
Staying present with what is, allows us to let go sooner, releases our suffering and connect with the True-Self. The True-Self is always aware of its expanded nature, whereas the False-Self is only aware of the “little me”. You know the one that worries, has anxiety and is fearful. The False-Self will also try to find lasting comfort and peace from overeating, shopping, sex, television, alcohol or a host of other empty activities. Finding your way to peace from this state keeps you in a continuous fluctuation of discomfort.
When we begin to see our problems as opportunities, the shift from resistance awakens our conscious awareness to the soul connection. Flowing into this space, without falling into resistance, we stay aware of our discomfort and peace at the same time. Allowing this natural balance of life to fall into place reveals the awakened being that is your birthright.
