Ducking Out

To all of you kind humans that follow this blog, I won't be writing for at least the rest of the year.

We're poised to enter a turning point in The Shift, during this next quarter of 2016, and it requires that individuals place kindness above competition. For me, this means that I have to be more authentic and walk without a safety net for a while and see what happens. Culture implies that being natural will kill you. So, let's see if I survive, shall we.

In the meantime, I hope all of you spend the next four and a half months being as loving, nurturing, caring, and complimentary to yourselves as is possible. Loving yourself and your life, unconditionally, is the survival gear. Wear plenty of it.

To We Or Not To We

Every bit of distress or joy comes down to your perception of separation or unity. Just about everything in culture promotes the idea of separation, so it can be difficult to recognize unity much less embrace it and believe it. You could say that culture is swayed in favor of distress because it promotes the idea of separation everywhere. This is especially convincing because it seems like individuality itself negates unity. How can you have a separate body, for example, and a separate will, and be in unity with everything? Well, you can because you are.

Individuality, and every form of experience, is possible because of unity. Unity is what allows the context within which you can have the experience of form. That form and that environment, and that individuality that explores that form and that environment, doesn't negate unity. The unity is what allows for the experience of all of that.

Thus, it's possible to be firmly in your individuality, expressing decisive focus and conviction while being a "we," at the same time. You are a "we," whether you acknowledge it or not, and this environment gives you the opportunity to deny that unity to the extreme. You may perceive yourself to be quite separate. In other words, you can choose not to "we." I would advise against it, but there it is.

The way things are now, the faster you "we," the better. That's because, in truth, I am we, and you are we, and we are we. That doesn't have to be a threatening thing because our "weity" doesn't deny our individuality. Instead, acknowledging the unity of us strengthens our individuality and promotes it.

Non-polarity Is A Different "It"

Continuing from yesterday, to explain polarity another way, when you want "it" to change, whatever "it" is to you in your life, you're in polarity because you're fighting "it." You're wanting "it" to be something that "it's" not. But "it" is what "it" is, and nothing else. "It" is perfectly, precisely, and purely "it."

Non-polarity is allowing "it" to be exactly what "it" is. You don't demean "it." You don't criticize "it." You don't hate "it." You don't fight "it." You understand that "it" will never change. "It" will always be "it." What you want, in reality, is to experience a different "it."

For example, say that "it" is poverty. You're in "it." You don't like "it." You want to change "it." But you can't change poverty. Poverty is poverty. "It's" one of the available experiences in this dimension, and there's nothing wrong with "it." "It" is valid. "It" is acceptable. "It" is not shameful. "It" exists.

But you're tired of "it," and the more you fight and hate and complain about "it," the more that "it" seems to stay exactly as "it" is. You don't understand why all of your efforts to get rid of "it" don't work out. It's because you're focused on "it." You're in the dance of polarity with "it." No one on the face of the Earth will ever be able to get rid of poverty, especially if they're against "it." "It" will always be an option. You can't eliminate "it." However, you can experience another "it" that is more to your liking.

This is a dimension of choice, and there are other choices available. Wealth is another option that exists. Poverty is a lack of things desired. Wealth is the acknowledgement of plenty of things desired. If you want wealth, then, you have to begin to focus on "it." What are the characteristics of "it?"

The main characteristic of wealth is plenty. "It" is plenty. So, to be in wealth, you have to be in plenty. You have to see that you have plenty of food and plenty of shelter and plenty of clothes and plenty of opportunities and plenty of skills and plenty of willingness and plenty of health and plenty of power and so on. You have to see and acknowledge the infinity that composes this environment.

Wealth is a different "it." By focusing on "it," you haven't made poverty go away. Poverty still remains a valid option. You can begin to look into your fridge and see a lack of food and out into the world and see a lack of love and a lack of opportunities and so on. You can cultivate the "it" of poverty at any time, and the experience will be real because poverty is one of the experiences available in a physical dimension. You can't get rid of the "it" of poverty. There's nothing wrong with "it." "It" is perfectly what "it" is. Your only option, if you're tired of that "it," is to choose a different "it." In this case, the alternative "it" would be wealth.

This is a world of focus, and you can't be focused on two things at the same time. You can't be expressing the focus of plenty while expressing the focus of lack. You're doing one or the other in each moment, and the one you're doing most wins. It creates a momentum that makes it easy to stay focused on that "it," and makes it more challenging to focus on a different "it." Nevertheless, the alternatives are available.

Using our example, you don't have to love poverty to get out of "it". But you can't hate "it". When you hate "it," you polarize yourself, and you cement yourself to "it." To get out of "it," you have to allow "its" validity. By doing so, you remove your attention from "it," and "it" loses power. This makes it much easier to turn your attention to what you want and keep your attention there. Another way to say this is non-polarity helps you nullify distraction. If you don't learn to do this, the things you hate own you.
