Life Takes the Lead (Part II)
Karmic cycles are conditions of your cosmology (cycle of your Soul) and it is perfectly supported by your genealogy (cycle of your ancestors, the family’s physical and emotional DNA). By reinvesting your family’s emotions into your own body at a cellular level you renew this karmic block from your bloodline. This needs to be cleared and overcome – either by you, your children, grand-children or further down the line. “Safe” is a state of consciousness. It isn’t a comforting thought, a creatable condition or the fulfillment of an emotional need – it isn’t even action orientation. Requiring the feeling of safety is a most dangerous state of unconsciousness. There will always be “good” reasons for worrying about “what ifs” and “what might becomes.”
Commitment and surrender are the only roads through such insecurity – this for the simple reason that commitment has the power to trump all other emotions and feelings. Commitment is a form of moratorium – a dedication to override all the reasons for anything but success. Commitment gives you a certain caliber, which gives you a certain character, which in turn gives you a certain capacity to uphold any and all declarations.
The mere fact that you’ve declared a desire to grow brings this in your face to be resolved once and for ever. Then, as you’re walking through Hell on your way to Heaven, don’t stop walking. Trust that you are still part of the known universe. After all, there is no way out or around it. Walk in the middle, the one right in the middle of your extremes – on one side you are deathly afraid to move and on the other trying to run away to safety.
Meditate with great discipline. Make it a daily routine and if possible relate to a teacher who will not let you slide. Take up this courage with surrender and commitment, and face your insecurities until you no longer feel unsafe. You’ve begun the journey of spiritual growth. You’ll know when you’ve made progress because you won’t feel safe but neither will you feel unsafe.
This is a huge contribution to you, your bloodline and humanity. Moving beyond your need for safety and into the arms of surrender and commitment trumps all the elements that have held everyone back for lifetimes. You’re now the hominid graduating toward being humanely human. Give yourself a big hand and hug.
Bank on this. It is the new economy in the new evolution. It’s true prosperity – it’s spiritual growth.
