Gandhi said, “Be the change you’d like to see in the world.” Why is NOT using your level of capacity, intelligence and generosity more important to you than being more of what you are and creating the change in the world that you would like to see?
Each of us can be the element of change we have been unwilling to be. Until now, you have only been willing to be the ideal, which creates others having conflict with you, judging you, not seeing you and not wanting to be around you – but none of those are what you are looking for. You don’t ask, “What else can I generate and create that’s beyond anything I ever knew was possible?”
You think that to be different requires separation from the oneness you are. This is not so. To be truly different requires oneness. The most different person in the world is the person who functions from oneness and consciousness. If you’re truly willing to function from oneness, everything and everyone changes around you.
Do you really want a difference? Try being conscious.
If you have consciousness, you will enjoy everything in life. For me, consciousness has a sense of peace with it. It’s an open-ended universe in which anything becomes possible, everything is available, and the choices you make determine how you’re willing to be with yourself and everybody around you. Peace and joy go hand in hand. You have a sense of peace and joy, and a sense of possibility, expansion and gratitude for everything and everyone around you.
I am looking for a different result than most people are looking for. I am interested in how we take the awareness that is you and expand it so your life expands. Consciousness is the way to do that. When you start choosing consciousness, all of a sudden, doors open.
Do you have the fixed point of view that you will work up to this consciousness thing? Do you think, “I will choose consciousness a little bit at a time? Eventually, you might talk me into going there. But I’m not going to do that until you talk me into it totally. You’d better be a good convincer, because I doubt that anybody is going to tell me the truth.”
If consciousness is years away, then you can maintain what? Your fixed points of view. If this describes you, I’m going to tell you something you’re not going to like: Consciousness is not a muscle you have to build. Consciousness is only a choice away. It’s a choice you have to make.
What would happen if you stepped into the space of all that choice?
