Hole in the soul

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

“This is the basic belief underlying progress, and it may have a beneficial side—but at a very high emotional cost. “I don’t like this way of living,” “I’m not ready,” “It’s too much for me,” “This shouldn’t happen now”—these thoughts come to our mind when we can’t acknowledge the simple truth that everything in the universe is flowing, and that our vital force must flow with life in the same way that a river must flow to the ocean. In denying anything that might happen, we’re fighting against the universe and the whole of reation. It must be understood that this is a lost fight from the very beginning, becausethe plans imbuing the universe—and everything that was created in it—are very powerful. When we think in terms of “it should be” or “it shouldn’t be,” we ignore the fact that everything happens for a reason, and though we may not know the reason, it’s supported by the creative force of all that exists.

Thus, to deny or resist what life gives us is equivalent to damming the current of the river with solid rock. “You can’t swim against the tide.” This refrain was coined after centuries of pain experiences. Isn’t it clear enough? If we change our response, if we accept that “it’s happening to me now and, therefore, exists,” we allow the stagnated vital force to flow again and eventually to transform itself. We can fight against our life force for as long as we wish, we can deny it and resist it till death, but we can also try to make an alliance with it to do such work together as must be done. We can ignore pain as long as we wish, but if we give it a place and listen to it, the door of a crucial transformation process will open before us. Once we commit ourselves to our life and wholly embrace it, the miracle of ease will visit us.
