Do you want nothing or everything? Most of us want nothing to do with pain or suffering and everything to do with wealth, abundance and ease.Right? We rush to avoid pain and run to what we think will give us riches. This has been said by many yet I love how my teacher said it: “Nothing or Abundance. When the pain of the opposite does not TOUCH you then you can touch the all aspects of God.When the pain of the opposite does not effect you. You will be noble.”
It is that place between the great gifts and the great suffering that we become awake, painless, joyous able to dance with all situations because they are all equal. This sounds so easy and so inviting yet we resits that which we say we want. We resist for what seem to be good reasons. We resist because if we just surrender we have given up right? No we have Given In. We have dived into the essence.
This last week brought so much forth. If you look on the surface it’s picnic time for finger pointing.
1.There was Straus-Kahn
2. There was Arnold doing much of the same.
3. There was the end of Days that didn’t happen.
4. There was a full moon
5. There was spring Rain in LA which hasn’t happened in years.
Rich men are entitled to the goodies. They can command them, they can grab them, they can do whatever they want and it doesn’t matter. Then when they get caught fist in cookie jar we all want to point the fingers. What if we just looked at it as a notice that this behavior no longer works no matter who you are. What is the end of Days? We saw as one group wanting to show that they had all the answers and you and I did not. There was only one door to merger and they would and you wouldn’t. Include them in our game. What if we allowed what separates us from the divine and the finite to be the same. The cold disconnect keeps us able to be judgmental and disconnected. To be better than as opposed to being all those things.
When we see ourselves as all these and much more our compassion grows, our hearts erupt, we are part of both the pain and the solution. It makes us vastly open and creative,in seeing solutions not finding them. The infinite is not lost we lose touch. The real question is are you ready to allow the quite to engulf you and not run away? Are you ready to hear your fears which keep you without? Are you ready to hear it all and be neutral.
Recently I visited Poland, Warsaw to be exact. I wept for all the pain in the city. I wept about all that was being done to keep the pain alive. I wept for all the museums that are built to showcase our sins (our lose of soul connection that allows actions that kill the other on one or many levels). Then i had the chance to know that light is being born there. I was blessed to be part of that light. All Darkness has light. All light darkness. I got to see both and then get very neutral about the play of both.
Create a practice to see what you are running from and run towards it. Embrace it, sit with it, bring both sides together it will allow you to see and be the whole.Wahe Guru.
