Are You A Prisoner In Your Own World?
Being incarcerated or imprisoned is part of some of our lives, it is an inevitable part of living in a big society. Whether we have committed a crime, or subject to some other form intervention of authorities, being banged up is probably one of the hardest things a person can go through. Innocent or guilty, the person goes through a whole series of emotions, which are meant to bring them to a point of true self.
Spiritual awakening is very similar in all respects to being a prisoner – in effect we are a prisoner in our own world. A world which we have created for ourselves, and one that only we can accept as true. Many prisoners start to blame the system, or others, or a whole series of other excuses. Eventually they will reach a point where they have no choice but to accept responsibility themselves. This is also parallel path followed when going through awakening, we become trapped in our own mind, body and soul.
There is only one answer, and solution – to process all of our life, come to terms with it, embrace it and then release it. Accepting responsibility for ALL our actions is paramount, and before you start to go off and start to seek another possibility, STOP. It is a fact that our truth is real, and so many are afraid of what it all means, especially a former prison inmate. In reality society is far too quick to judge others for their lives, and what they have ever done, and this is a fundamental flaw in today’s way of living.
We become presumptuous, opinionated and swayed based on other people’s say so, or interpretation, before we have even said more than 4 sentences.
The Awakening Journey!
As with a prisoner, he or she has a release date, and in some cases maybe entitled for an early release for good behaviour and in compliance with the system rules!! How the prisoner becomes or adjusts to life inside is his choice, he will flow through the system irrespective, for the system is in control. The awakening journey on the other hand is all in our power. We can choose to hold on to all that no longer serves us, and continue in a vicious circle of repetitive events or situations. Alternatively, we can begin to embrace what is happening and go within for the answers.
The awakening journey is very tough, as no-one really likes to examine themselves with a microscope do they? But it is that action that leads to the biggest rewards. During the early days of the journey we realise there is a bigger aspect to this whole story. One that is incredible and miraculous, but also one that will take us to the darkest places we have ever been. Once it has begun, we do have the choice to stop, but that really defeats the purpose!
No Turning Back!
As time passes, the journey eases, and becomes a transformation of the mind, very similar to being imprisoned. The mind becomes free of the things that once plagued it, and big new thoughts are being added. We have come to terms with who we are in all that we are and in all our truth. Others will notice this in you, and will either love it or loath it – this is their choice. At the end of the day, no matter what we have done in our lives, we can have no regrets.
We have to accept it all, and heal it through bringing in the love energy that we all possess. We can ask for forgiveness of others, and of ourselves – but this is not something we must carry everyday like a bag of rocks. If others judge or stigmatise the situation, instead of reacting, simply take a second and respond properly. You are not obliged to keep dragging it all up, what is done is done, as long it has been healed and processed from a position of love.
Once the threshold has been reached, there is no turning back – we can no longer be taken back to jail for the offenses committed. The same once we have processed our life and opened our heart to love. Life simply continues in a whole new energy, and one that will nourish and feed us in a truly remarkable way. Switching off the monkeys in the mind is a true testimony of self-mastery, and one that each of us deserves to be proud of.
Like a person who leaves prison, there can be no looking back – there can only be mastering the new reality of freedom. Whatever decisions are made from that point they are crucial to creating a new loving life in peace. We all pay our dues, we are all human beings who do things for reasons we often can’t explain. Waking up is one aspect of life we will all face, eventually.
Avoidance Of Truth!
We can avoid waking up by filling our lives with unnecessary things, or work, or anything else to have no time left to think. Believe me the Universe will bring that little fantasy to an end, and make sure you understand that you are a messenger of love and light. And usually these things come in one big mountain of issues, just to be sure you get the message, that there is something you need to do.
The longer we avoid our own truth, or ignore the signs of spiritual and mental meltdown, we are just accumulating energy that will have to be dealt with. What I can share is that the darker and deeper we go within, the brighter and lighter the new life we create will become. These are some of the wonderful aspects of waking up, and stepping into the love and powerful energies of the universe. Quite literally waking up is freeing the mind, body and soul from millennia of imprisonment, and one that is necessary for humanity to grow and prosper.
