Nothing Is Wrong (There are no problems)
I have personally not ever been prone to feel sorry for people, I have never seen the point to do that and it has just not made any sense to me when people have been moaning around me feeling sorry for others.
I always thought that it does more good to actually do something about it if it touches you or affects you on a deep emotional level. (It’s really an invitation, so become aware of in what direction you are moved to go and follow that gut-feeling).
As you may know I’m a vegetarian and my choice was for ethical reasons as I educated myself by looking closely into the meat industry and how they treat the animals.
Life moved me in that way and the apparent choice I made was very easy; I don’t want to take part in that kind of energy, simple as that.
I saw some disgusting things and some (at that time) friends of mine saw the same things and were horrified by what they learned and saw but instead of adjusting themselves to the new insight they kept on moaning and whining about it but not really doing something.
What’s the point in that? I don’t get it. (Not that I have the need to understand either).
And I don’t mean we should try to save everyone and so on, but to respond with awareness to what life presents to us. Some things we feel drawn to take some kind of action towards while some stuff don’t affect us much at all.
It still makes me cringe inside when I see stuff where animals are being badly treated (I think it’s a natural reaction when witnessing unbalance, but not even the unbalance is wrong, it’s an invitation to Truth just like everything else) but I don’t feel drawn to do more than making a personal choice about what I chose to put into my body.
That is how life moves through me and even though I say it’s a personal choice I don’t really mean that in the sense that ‘I’ am making the choice.
I see it as ‘this is the way life expresses itself through and as me’ and by following what feels right inside is always the same as following the Truth, which will not take no for an answer. (We either go with life or struggle against the natural flow and when we do that, we suffer).
We always know what the right thing is to do, it’s a matter of listening and responding to the impulses of Life with honesty.
I have no clue if I will stay a vegetarian for the rest of my life, I have no clue about how life decides to move through me even tomorrow or the next minute. It’s a moment to moment awareness about what feels right to do on an intuitive level.
Yes, we can go on pretending (going against our inner knowing, knowing that that’s what we do), but the Truth will never leave you, because that is what and who you are.
So, do what feels right in your heart, and I can assure you that moaning and complaining is not in alignment with who you really are.
Nothing is wrong, there are no problems, and this becomes very very clear as spiritual awakening occurs.
I find myself not having a care in the world, although for some (who knows of my financial situation for example) would probably see problems. I just don’t. And believe me, I used to think there were a lot of improvements to be made (or, changes to be made) in the past!
There is really nothing to worry about, nothing to fear, nothing to change (if life doesn’t move me that way) and the second I’m out of integrity I’ll feel it very strongly, so I get back to Truth right away.
In reality there is nothing but the Truth, everything in life is an invitation to Truth itself.
So how to handle this, when the world so to speak is keen to see issues to solve rather than seeing all things as being a part of One. Which by the way means everything, even our illusions of separation.
The experience of separation is there to invite us to Oneness, just as the desires of the ego is there to move us into desireless-ness. That’s what “failures” are about in reality.
Or we may get what we want, and realize we didn’t want it after all. That’s the way life moves, it’s very wise, it’s pure wisdom.
With awakening the desires just simply vanish and they mean nothing. Only thing that remains is profound peace and inner knowingness that this precise moment is absolutely perfect and nothing can disturb that knowing.
I still have preferences (likes and dis-likes is a part of our human-ness) but even if they weren’t met so to speak and I had to live with the opposite it would still not matter to me. (There is no resentment left in me).
Truth is so obvious, so there is no longer any desire to strive to become or gain anything.
Whatever life decides to do will happen (or “manifest”) and nothing more or less than that, so to just relaxing into that knowing is (I don’t even find words to describe it) profoundly peaceful.
Even if things are difficult they are not thought of as being wrong and whatever changes that are being manifested is not by our doing. And we know that, so there is only peace and stillness to experience, even in the midst of any ‘chaos’.
I find myself being even more quiet than ever before, I seem to not have as many comforting words to give as I used to before when people shared their everyday problems with me for example.
It’s not that I don’t care (compassion is still present), it’s just that I don’t experience life from that perspective anymore, I live here and now and there’s never a problem in this moment and everything is intertwined in marvelous ways (infinite ways! No one can trace a cause to anything and this becomes very obvious) that I can never comprehend so what else can there be than complete trust that life knows exactly what it does?
What can be challenging is to learn how to relate to others now that you see life in a totally different way, from this new perspective, and so what I suggest is to simply be open and say that:
“I don’t see life as I used to do anymore. I just can’t relate to that as I used to do, I don’t see problems anymore, all I experience is that all is well, exactly as they are suppose to be”.
It’s either that, or pretending to care about problems that now seem so petty and continue living in illusion. (I don’t mean “petty” as in looking down on other peoples issues, but the transformation is so radical that it makes all problems seem petty, even the ones that once may have been huge before).
And you can’t really do that. Truth has taken a hold of you and will not let go and to stay true to Truth is the way, otherwise you compromise your true being, and you will feel immediately when your out of authenticity and integrity.
There’s definitely a time to learn how to adjust to the realization, and that includes how to relate to others, and the easiest way is to simply say what you feel and be open and honest about it.
How others react is up to them.
Some may be pissed of thinking you’re cold and selfish because you don’t care (or get involved in drama) like you used to, and when some of your views change they can chock others. (Because nothing is no longer a big deal). They may get upset because of your views on things and they may even get angry at you.
That too is not a problem.
It’s just how life decides to move and all is perfectly well.
Even when it may seem difficult at times, the peace within never leaves you. (It’s who you are).
The personal involvement in life is no longer there (as in “I made this, I did that, I’m going to do/create that”), it’s more like being lived by an intelligence that loves itself and the only one that can ever judge something (life) as being wrong is the ego. (And the ego is the person you imagine yourself to be and who doesn’t have a clue about Truth to begin with).
The real you (the true nature of your being) simply knows the Truth because that’s what it is, and that’s what makes it so obvious when realized.
There is no way life can be wrong in any way. Why? Because this is what it is, and to argue with that is just stupid. We really don’t have a clue about anything and the sooner we can embrace that realization fully, the faster Peace itself embraces us and everything becomes so very, very beautiful, even the seemingly ‘ugly’.
