So I’ve been doing a lot of letting go of my sense of obligation towards teaching. Some of this transition has been previously discussed, but I’ve been doing a lot of exploration on in the area and I’ve noticed that there was some energy of “People really need to hear what I have to say. It’s important that people wake up and that I am here to play my part. They need me. The best thing I can do for others is to share with them my truths (whatever they are) so that they can wake up ASAP. Don’t be fully yourself, but the version of you that I think you should be.”
haha wow, so there. I said it.
Although I would prefer not to admit to this, there was some invalidation of where you guys are and an attempt to “help” you see what I see, as if my perspective is better than yours. Ah, yet another layer to let go of, of being some sort of savior.
A lot of that has been dropping away and now more and more I find myself appreciating each and every person just as they are, wherever they are, no matter what their perspective, understanding, or level of consciousness is. Be whoever you are. I’m not here to fix you, change you, improve you, or teach you. I’d rather just love you as you are. That’s enough for me now.
What I’m discovering as well is that you guys are really powerful beings!
I’d like to acknowledge you all, individually and collectively. This awakening that is happening across the world, this ascension process or whatever you wanna call it, it seems like everyone is involved to a greater or lesser extent. It is happening with or without our help. Our involvement in “helping people wake up” may be unnecessary in an absolute sense, but it can certainly be incredibly beneficial nonetheless, not to mention fun! Our roles happen when the inspiration arises, not out of shoulds or shouldn’ts.
There need be no sense of obligation in this process. I no longer feel responsible for any of you, for helping you wake up, for helping you understand anything, or for getting you anywhere whatsoever. You’re here, and that’s enough. That’s it. Your awakening is between you and God. I recognize the duality in that sentence, and it was done deliberately. Yes we are all one, yet there is an apparent individual here who is responsible for their own awakening. Plain and simple. We each have 100% responsibility for ourselves. No one else is responsible for us. In fact, there is no one else here to be responsible for us in the first place!
Each of us have the necessary seeds of wisdom within us that we need. In this moment we have all that require and nothing is lacking. Sure we can support, encourage, and assist one other in this awakening process, but we all are powerful enough to stand fully as who we are. We don’t need anyone else to hold us up or do it for us.
What I’m finding with my energy and my life path at this point is that I’m less and less interested in “teaching” spirituality directly, with the primary intention of helping people wake up. In fact, I’ve noticed that now when I go in with that intent, it doesn’t flow as harmoniously as it once did. I don’t have to wake anyone up. You guys are already doing that, with or without my help!
So rather than trying to lead people to awakening in whatever form that takes and share what I’ve learned, I’m finding it far more in alignment with who I am now to support those who are in the midst of their journey, to simply love them for who they are.
I’m not seeking to accomplish anything whatsoever by writing this post. I’m simply enjoying the flow of creative energy as it expresses itself in writing. It just feels really good, and I deeply enjoy this experience. It just feels right.
“You Are Truly Loved features content designed to guide people towards spiritual enlightenment, unconditional love, and inner peace through Self-realization. We Are All One.” That’s been the slogan for this blog since I started it nearly 2 years ago. I’ve really enjoyed playing my part in that mission thus far and it has been a wonderful stepping stone to get me where I am now.
“Each purpose, each mission, is meant to be fully lived to the point where it becomes empty, boring, and useless. Then it should be discarded. This is a sign of growth, but you may mistake it for a sign of failure.” -David Deida
These days I naturally find myself falling into a position whereby I help people gain a greater contextual understanding of the symptoms and path of awakening that are already happening, rather than trying to lead people towards the next thing.
I find myself synchronistically and effortlessly having wonderful conversations with beings who have realized their True Self and am interested in hearing what these people have to say and sharing their messages with the world. Why? I have no idea. It’s just what feels right within and I find the need to question it no longer necessary or even all that useful.
See, it’s not about a few people like Jesus or Buddha or Ramana or Tolle (or me) being the sole awakened ones teaching others about spiritual principles. In this day and age, so many people are now waking up. The greatest gift we can give another is not our own ideas and realizations, but rather the gift of themselves. Who YOU already ARE is greater than any gift you could possibly imagine. Who you ARE is nothing that needs to be learned or obtained from anyone else. It’s already here, and you already are That.
So here I am, naturally finding my energy shifting from apparently playing the role of a so-called teacher to simply being love. To just being.
This being, now, in this moment, wants to express itself as what it is, and the form it is taking is more of supporting those who are already walking the path, not in trying to get anyone anywhere whatsoever, including to a perceived better version of this moment.
This moment. Just being who I am. Loving. That’s enough. Nothing more is necessary. This feels right.
