I have been on a journey of discovery in the last few years… and in a sense it is a continuing one, for on the journey through life one will encounter a lot of things, people, places and experiences – which in the end leads one every further into the realms of the body, mind, spirit and soul that you would never encounter, when staying stuck in the same place, the same milieu, the same old routine and habits.
It is not that all that sameness is bad in itself – the danger simply is, that one gets stuck in the comfort zones – where one simply does not make the effort – for making the effort takes up energy – and energy is something one does not wish to extend. Or it can be scary stepping out of the familiar and into the unknown….
To me the legend of the Grail, sums this journey up to a Tee. The knight sets off on a journey into the blue wild yonder, in search for the Grail. In the process he encounters all kinds of obstacles, has to conquer dragons and rescue maidens in distress… all in search of the ultimate… the Eternal Prize…
Joseph Campbell says that all Myths and Legends, such as the Grail, have the same central theme – the theme of FOLLOWING YOUR BLISS… for the search of for the Grail, is in fact the Search for the Mythical and Mystical, which is really a search of the Keys and Codes of SOUL in all of life and life in its many multiple and intricate forms.
To me this journey has been from one of intense pain and confusion – from the world that I saw as hostile and corrupt, into the world where I am finding the Keys and Codes of life itself and with it delving ever deeper and deeper into the very Mysteries of who and what life really is and the immensity of BEING….
For following your Bliss always entails setting off on the INNER journeys – the realms not so much there – as not explored by the masses – for a lot of people are scared to dig deeper and deeper into the realms of the mind, spirit and soul – for the fear of finding too much that they can’t understand or deal with. Once the incessant chatter of the MIND gets switched off and the realms of the spirit and soul are embarked on, then one steps into the mystical and magical world of life ETERNAL – life immeasurable – life in bountiful and gifted BEINGNESS….
To me this is where I have found the greatest keys. First of all, the tools for knowing that the law of cause and effect is Eternal, and whatever you reap – you sow. What you believe is your own reality – is the reality that you live.
A lot of people believe that BAD – they see only the bad, the harmful and ugly in life. They buy into sensation, into judging and criticizing and love it when someone makes a mistake – then gossip flares up, for as long as I can rejoice in the badness, the perceived mistakes of the OTHERS, I do not have to look deeper inside myself.
I have had to deal with this aspect in the last few weeks, as here was a case of someone who simply lived in the dark world, she has set up for herself. To her, all of life is conspiring to kill her. She lives in fear of all and everything. She cannot discern between those who genuinely love her and are concerned for her – for she sees them as part and particle of the monsters who wish to do her harm. Even the kindest of gestures is answered with rapier-cut sarcasms and dagger-like intent to hurt.
To me she answered the question herself, when she said she LIKES being classified as being bi-polar. What she was really saying is, that being the way she has been classified as, it a wonderful tool, for not having to take RESPONSIBILITY. Hiding behind, creating fears, creating a dark and hostile world was SERVING her. She would not buy into this illusionary world, if it was not SERVING her in some deeper way.
In all of this alarm bells are going off elsewhere. To what intent and purposes is this person still sane? Does one dope her, institutionalize her, or does one simply let her destroy herself – because that is the perceive result of her actions….
I sat down and wondered how does one classify a person sane or insane? How does one react to all the darkness she is feeding on inside her own fears and mind? Or does one simply try to classify a soul a mentally unstable and then feed her with drugs, which do not solve the soul problem and does not really get to the heart of the matter….
The SOUL itself is not DARK – IT IS THE ILLUSION SHE FEEDS HERSELF MENTALLY IN THIS LIFE WHICH IS CREATING HER OWN WORLD AND HER PERCEPTIONS OF IT.
To me, and what I am discovering more and more on my journey towards the Grail, is that one’s soul is a vast and immense BEING. It has many talents and abilities, and it was created to express a certain TRAIT or TRAITS and this is what truly makes to content and happy, when you living your live in synch with your SOUL NAME AND TRAITS. FOR THIS IS EESENTIALLY WHERE YOUR HOLY GRAIL KEYS AND CODES LIE. This is where you are weaver of alchemical magic, and where you truly step out as the CREATOR self.
When we incarnate onto this planet, some souls, in the process of encountering the very unbalanced state of life – which tends to sometimes lean more to the darker side of life – the woes, pain, lies, violence, wars, etc. than to the lighter side: beauty, joy, happiness, contentment etc. Sometimes the soul, simply is bewildered, and in its bewilderment, starts SHRINKING AWAY from life. This is where the tendency to seek methods of ESCAPING LIFE takes the form of using alcohol, drugs, substance abuse, binging, anorexia nervosa, etc. All of this to try and run away from the PERCEIVED IMPERFECTIONS of LIFE, AND THEN PERCEIVED IMPERFECTION WITHIN ONESELF!
YET THE SOUL HAS NO IMPERFECTIONS – ONLY DESIRES TO MASTER SOUL LESSONS AND TO REFLECT ITS EXPERIENCES BACK TO THE DIVINE SOURCE.
A lot of souls, who are inherently very unhappy inside of themselves, tend to blame the government, the state, conspiracies, family, parents, upbringing, circumstances, etc. for the state their lives are in. What blame does, is it passes the buck – when your blame others, then you are denying your own responsibilities towards creating life in its multiple forms.
A classic example to me here is found, in my own country. In 1994 this country stepped past the drama of Apartheid, into what it termed as “FREEDOM FROM OPPRESSION.” Yet, in 2012, all that calamities, corruptions and woes of society are STILL BLAMED ON THE REGIME WHICH EXISTED ALL THOSE YEARS AGO. IT HAS BECOME A CONVENIENT SCAPE-GOAT TO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ONE’S OWN INACTION OR ACTIONS! As long as you can blame others for your own faults, then that takes the responsibility off you, to have to examine yourself!
I have learnt in the last few years, that I have a choice: I can blame all and sundry for what has happened to me in my life – or I CAN CHOSE TO LET GO OF THE EMOTIONAL CHARGES AND FREE MYSELF OF ILLUSIONS! I have long time learnt to thank those who cost me my job, and who threatened to kill me – and to thank them for giving me my life back. If they had not done that, I would have still been stuck in the same old job, and the same old rut that I was in before. I would never have discovered the amazing things I did, I would never have gotten in touch with my own soul and its abilities, and I would never have GROWN in the way I did grow, in the last few years!
For in every single pain, there is a hidden blessing. In every calamity, there is a blessing in disguise. In every single moment, where something is happening that is causing you pain; there is someone or something bringing you blessings and happiness.
If someone judges you or blames you for something, ask yourself: “WHERE DID I BLAME OR JUDGE SOMEONE?” Dig deep and it is there. Then ask yourself: “HOW DID THIS PERSON BLAMING OR JUDGING ME, SERVE ME?” Dig deep and it is there. Friends might have rallied to defend you or support you. Maybe Angels were there to hold you in their arms and comfort you.
WITH EVERY PAIN THERE IS BLESSING AND WITH EVERY JOY THERE IS PAIN.
Whatever you do to others is returned to you.
Yet, what I have learnt more than this is that there is BEAUTY, LOVE AND LIGHT EVERYWHERE – it is there in and around us.
I have learnt that in the deepest slums there is love… and in the greatest splendour there is pain. Even the Queen of Britain has had what she termed “HORRIBLE YEARS”, and I have been the greatest smiles and joys in the poorest communities.
When I do soul readings, I am always kind-of amazed at the beauty of the SOUL NAMES, which describe the BEAUTIFUL TALENTS, TRAITS AND GIFTS the SOUL BRINGS INTO ALL OF THIS INCARNATIONS. This is what the SOUL IS MEANT to EXPRESS IN THIS LIFETIME – WHAT IT IS MEANT TO GIVE TO THIS PLANET AS INSPIRATION – AS WORK AND ABILITIES! They are truly beautiful creative gifts!
Yet, somehow we lose that – we do not LIVE it – and we forget who and what we truly are and what we are capable of being!
Life gives us manifold blessings, joys and happiness every single day. There is beauty in manifold forms all around us, within us, and in multiple faces.
WE CAN CHOSE WHAT WE SEE AND WE CAN CHOSE WHAT WE CREATE. I CHOSE BEAUTY, JOY AND INSPIRATION! I CHOSE TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULL! I CHOSE TO BE HAPPY!
The more my journey continues into the realms of rediscovery energy centres and working with the healing of souls and the soul of the planet – the more I stand in awe of creation and the more codes and keys of the Grail, are being revealed to me.
Whatever you chose to journey into – is what you will find!
Life is amazing and beautiful – and what a tremendous gift it is to be alive and well and on planet Earth at this time!
