Lifetime regression

In meditating on acceptance throughout the day, I was taken to a point of contemplating the True Self.  My definition for the True Self is this: who you are when you are not reacting to something other than God; whether internal, or external.  By this I mean that most often we are reacting to either a tangible event in our lives, or our fears that have accumulated over a lifetime of experiencing such events … events that we are hoping to avoid.

Over time these reactions can become an extremely complex web of reactions that come in many forms: white lies and subtle manipulations, at first.  As we go further down the road, we see that we keep getting what we want and it continues to evolve.  The problem is … that person is not our True Self.  You can’t even find the True Self in the midst of all that chaos.

When we truly get to a point of acceptance (something which many wrongly construe as resignation) we allow all of these “chains” that bind us to dissolve, and disappear.  What we are left with is the True Self.  When you can accept where you are, or what has happened, or what might happen, or might not … then you can breathe deeply and realize that you are free.  Now, with a clear head, you can move forward as your True Self … that person who has been hiding behind all these layers of reactions that were intended to protect, but ultimately only suffocate.  That person who is following Spiritual guidance, as opposed to man-made constructs.

I went back in time; wondering if there was ever a another point in my life where that True Self was evident.  Certainly not in my memory.  As a child we are certainly trained and groomed in certain ways, and these all have their affect.  So I went further, back to an infant.  Many believe that “mankind is fallen”, even from birth.  I just don’t believe (in having looked into the eyes of many babies) that this is true.  That is our soul as the True Self.

What happens though is that we are quickly trained that if we cry, we get what we want.  We learn that by taking our fate into our own hands, we can make the world do what we want.  That trait is encouraged and empowered throughout our lives.  The more aggressive we are, the better.  We can make the world what we want it to be … but most often that does not concur with what God wants us to be.  When was a child rewarded for sitting in a room, meditating, and being with God?  In certain cultures that may be the case, but not in American culture, for the most part.

So the search for the True Self is really about undoing everything that has been trained and ingrained.  Some might think this borders on Anarchy, or at least Existentialism.  While I understand this reaction, my ultimate point is that when our focus is on God … we can trust God to guide us.  I am not saying that there should be no rules when I say that we need to go through a lifetime regression.  I am saying that we should spend our time listening to God for such guidance … instead of relying on man-made crutches.  If God REALLY is there … why do we need anyone else to tell us what God is saying?

We should let be letting go of all of the negative reactions we have allowed, accepting where we are, and then moving forward in life as that True Self … not reacting, but ACTING as we are guided by God.

I realize that many people get nervous about something so unstructured … but I believe that, when God is the basis of any action, LOVE will be the result.  It is a curious musing that I found myself on today … I welcome any and all to agree, disagree, or expound.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.

Yes I very much agree with that by allowing ourselves to welcome, love and listen to God we get “back to basics” and where we essentially started out! Then the whole process of daily living is an opportunity for this divine love to extend from us to all situations and all people. Not easy-but sucess comes little by little.

Thank you for your sharing your wisdom.

It most certainly does come little by little! Once we begin to untangle the vast and complex web of reactions that we have grown used to … well it becomes startling to see the manner in which we had grown accustomed to living. It ranges all the way from the large, important issues, all the way down to the tiny things; like whether we turn right or left (both literally and philosophically) at any given moment.

It’s not an easy task to undertake … to change an entire lifetime of training … but so very worth the effort and intention. To know God is the ultimate meaning of life … for it is from there that all good things come from.
