Individuation

Unless you free your soul from the wrong heritage of your forefathers and parents, your particular destiny will fail to reveal itself as YOU.

Is it so, or is it so?…

No matter how much you aim to get it,
the unexplainable runs the show.

Amor fati

Most humans´ failure is triggered by their inability, or rather, self-sufficiency and idleness when it comes to decipher and appropriate their real Destiny:
They fell short to fathom and take advantage of those ineffably fruitful encounters with people who would have inspired and enriched them, who could have unveiled the very Course and Sense of their life…Indeed, they prodigiously fail to recognize those unwonted occurrences behind which Grace was winking…
Because of this, most people will live giddily, vapidly and “lost”…

 

What is the likelihood that it all can be other than impossible?…

Inner transformation is sometimes our only option

“We must never forget that we may also find meaning in life, even when confronted with a hopeless situation, when facing a fate that cannot be changed.To turn predicament into a human achievement. For what then matters is to transform a personal tragedy into a triumph. When we are no longer able to change a situation, that is when we are challenged to change ourselves.”

– Viktor Frankl

You will never find what you seek by seeking it

– Jeff Foster

Don´t miss the encounters with your true Destiny

What if the right and most vital answer is under your very nose, but being constantly busy to seek for it elsewhere – expecting it to come either sooner or later, in a different guise, or from a higher and more “appropriate” authority – you fail to recognize it, stubbornly discarding it, relegating it as “superstition”, and thus time and again you miss the greatest blessings Fate has had in store for you.

You are not your life story

“Briefly, for me, non-attachment to feelings and/or ideas is the ability to watch, feel and experience without believing the narrative that might accompany the feelings or the experience and then being able to respond if appropriate rather than reacting.

It’s about living in the moment and surrendering to the unknown.”

Monica Cassani

How true her words ring here, as if she was talking to me: I realize awestricken that
my feelings are telling me a very treacherous story about myself.

This is such a trap:

Will I continue listening and identifying with this false tale about who I am?

Whose drama am I living which calls itself “me”?

Most of us are the convicts of our life stories. With an iron grip, these ageless narratives keep us hopelessly stuck in dreams which are not our own.

I take it again: unbeknownst, we live out ancestral nightmares, which constantly
deprive us of directly experiencing our true individuality – Who We Truly Are.

This blind heritage has enormous power – no wonder, it has been inertially perpetuated through immemorial time – and if you are urged to live your true Life Story, you urgently need to break free from these haunting, faceless memories.

Easier said than done. The combat is not a “literal” one – it must take place on very deep levels in your soul. It is there, inside these elusive layers that your earthly destiny is decided. Thus, you have to delve in and take on the “fight” on the symbolic, archetypal plane, where our Fate is “sealed”.

In plain English:

You need an incredible lucidity, courage, sensitivity and determination to let go of and disindentify from the stories which give themselves to be “you”.

These narratives control you mainly through your feelings, and you need to have the
power to step back and question the truth of your emotions.

Defy all these phantoms which steal you from You.

YOU ARE NOT YOUR EMOTIONS OR YOUR THOUGHTS.

YOU ARE NOT YOUR LIFE STORY.

Ask yourself lucidly:

“CAN I SURRENDER TO WHO I REALLY AM?”

Reason or Joy?… – your choice

Rational means to ascribe Fact the only supremacy, dismissing the obvious evidence
that Fact as such is but a choice dictated by a smaller or larger group of people.

Facts only can never bring you Joy. The best proof is millions of people´s failed lives.

Look to all people who lived before you:

Most of them were strictly rational, many never really lived, and so they died miserable, without ever being happy. It sounds cruel, but unless you are prepared to see, you will encounter the same dismal destiny. 

At some point you have to give up being rational.

The greatest challenge is finding yourself in the middle of the howling Drama, and despite inhuman hardships and setbacks,  to unwaveringly stick with, and remain anchored in Joy.

Yes… JOY! Your true Shining Shadow, the genuine Guide.

You have to be so irrational enough to believe in Joy even if you don´t feel it presently. Easier said than done…I for one easily forget this and time and again let myself be dragged into the mishaps of earthly life.

If you want to have a real life, at some point you have to defect from the ongoing world drama with its abysmal predicament of pain and suffering, and invalidate it as being no more than a dream.

You better… – because otherwise you´ll walk the paved way to misfortune.

So ironic…

Eckhart Tolle was is Stockholm yesterday for a speech, and this reached
me first now.

Destiny is playing tricks on me…- it feels like…Why should I know at all…?

Really, it strikes me as highly unusual that I didn´t find out about this
earlier, that I didn´t receive a sign, that fate didn´t “notify” me somehow…

This poses the question:

Do we “miss” certain essential things in life, or the events or encounters that
are bound to happen, simply come to us…?

Quite a conundrum.
