It’s not your Fault…
All the pain and suffering you are experiencing isn’t your fault, nobody else’s fault either! Nobody has done anything wrong! It’s all part of your journey to experience duality and gain feelings of compassion and acceptance of what is (forgiveness) AND to realise there is so much more to you than your identity and physical experience… in fact you are not your identity and physical experience! You are an infinite being of Divine light, all powerful and magnificent allowing yourself a Human experience of contrasts.
If you are in the midst of pain, struggle or dis-ease… in the depths of hopelessness, despair or terror, you have brought yourself to this moment to Awaken to your truth, to remember who you are and your original intention to live now and experience yourself… Knowing all of yourself, Expressing yourself, Coming back to your Original State of Being Love and Evolving yourself into a new Consciousness and a reality unknown to you up until this moment.
If for a moment you can step back from your circumstance and allow yourself to observe yourself in life, sense the role or roles you are playing… it could be the victim, the aggressor, the caregiver, the loner, the rebel… mentioning just a few! You will see how you are (still) judging and doubting yourself and others (that has become quite normal practice for everyone) and continually re-creates a life of suffering, lacking abundance, fear and pain for you.
Being aware of how you are responsible for everything you experience, allows you to CHANGE your behaviour, to stop judging and doubting and instead of focusing only on your Human role, focus on being the loving and powerful light you truly are within and bring about a new and loving experience. Trust this, expect this and slowly you will see how your new choices bring in your heart and soul dreams.
IAM not saying it’s easy, but it’s necessary for you to deal with your conditioned mind, embrace it, enjoy life the best you can AND continue to focus on your dream… knowing it will at some point show up in your physical reality!
When doubt or judgement comes up… Who am I to be the change, IAM not good enough, I don’t deserve it, see it really doesn’t work, oh poor me, IAM worthless, IAM depressed, IAM not important… it’s essential you acknowledge it, embrace it and thank yourself for this great opportunity to change how you respond to this challenge AND allow yourself to get totally excited about being Your Magnificent Self and creating a life of celebration!
A long time ago Neale Donald Walsh wrote the following parable in his book, Conversations with God that made a huge impact on me. I hope you enjoy it too.
The Little Soul
There once was a little soul who knew itself to be the light. This was a new soul, and so, anxious for experience. “I am the light,” it said. “I am the light.” Yet all the knowing of it and all the saying of it could not substitute for the experience of it. And in the realm from which this soul emerged, there was nothing but the light.
Every soul was grand, every soul was magnificent, and every soul shone with the brilliance of MY awesome light. And so the little soul in question was as a candle in the sun. In the midst of the grandest light- of which it was a part- it could not see itself, nor experience itself as Who and What it Really Is.
Now it came to pass, that the little soul yearned and yearned to know itself. And so great was its yearning that “I” one day said, “Do you know little one, what you must do to satisfy this yearning of yours?” “Oh what, God? what? I’ll do anything!? The little soul said.
“You must separate yourself from the rest of us,” I answered, “and then you must call upon yourself the darkness.” “You may choose to be any Part of God you wish to be,” I said to the little soul. “You are the Absolute Divinity, experiencing Itself. What Aspect of Divinity do you now wish to experience as you?” “You mean I have a choice,” ask the little soul. I answered, “Yes.” You may choose to experience any Aspect of Divinity in, as, and through you.” “Okay,” said the little soul, then I choose forgiveness. I want to experience my Self as that Aspect of God called Complete Forgiveness.”
Well, this created a little challenge, as you can imagine. There was no one to forgive. All I have created is Perfection and Love. “No one to forgive?” asked the Little Soul, somewhat incredulously. “No one,” I repeated. “Look around you. Do you see any souls less perfect, less wonderful than you?” As the Little soul twirled around, and was surprised to see himself surrounded by all the souls in heaven. They came from far and wide throughout the Kingdom, because they had heard the little soul was having an extraordinary conversation with God.
“I see none less perfect than I,” the Little Soul exclaimed.” Who then, shall I have to forgive?” Just then another soul stepped forward from the crowd. “You may forgive me,” said the Friendly Soul. “For what?” the little soul asked. “I will come onto your next physical lifetime and do something for you to forgive,” replied the Friendly Soul. “But what? What could you, a being of such Perfect Light, do to make me forgive you?” the Little Soul wanted to know. “Oh,” smiled the Friendly Soul, I’m sure we can think of something.”
“But why would you want to do this?” The Little Soul could not figure out why a being of such perfection would want to slow down its vibration so much that it could actually do something “bad.” “Simple,” the Friendly Soul explained,” I would do it because I love you. You want to experience your Self as Forgiving, don’t you? Besides, you have done the same for me.” “I have?” asked the Little Soul. “Of course. Don’t you remember? We’ve been All Of It, you and I. We’ve been the Up and the Down of it, and the Left and Right of it. We’ve been the Here and Now of it, and the Now and Then of it. We’ve been the Big and Small of it, the Male and Female of it, the Good and Bad of it. We’ve been the All of it.”
“And we’ve done it by agreement, so that each of us might experience ourselves as The Grandest Part of God. For we have understood that… In the absence of that which You Are Not, that Which You Are, is NOT. In the absence of ‘cold,’ you cannot be ‘warm.’ In the absence of ‘sad,’ you cannot be ‘happy,’ without a thing called ‘evil,’ the experience you call ‘good’ cannot exist. If you choose to be a thing, something or someone opposite to that has to show up somewhere in your universe to make that possible.”
The Friendly Soul then explained that those people are God’s Special Angels, and these conditions God’s Gifts. “I ask only one thing in return, ” the Friendly Soul declared. “Anything! Anything,” the Little Soul cried. He was excited now to know that he could experience every Divine Aspect of God. He understood, now The Plan. “In the moment that I strike you and smite you,” said the Friendly Soul, “in the moment that I do the worst to you that you could ever imagine—in that self-same moment… remember Who I Really Am.” “Oh, I won’t forget!” promised the Little Soul. “I will see you in the perfection with which I hold you now, and I will remember Who You Are, always.”
“What is this darkness, O’ Holy One?” the little soul ask. “That which you are not,” I replied, and the soul understood. So this the soul did, removing itself from the All, yea, going even onto another realm. And in this realm the soul had the power to call onto its experience all sorts of darkness. And this it did.
Yet in the midst of all the darkness did it cry out: “Father, Father, why hast Thou forsaken me?” “Even as have you in your blackest times. Yet I have never forsaken you, but stand by you always, ready to remind you of Who You Really Are; ready, always ready, to call you home. Therefore, be a light unto the darkness, and curse it not. And forget not Who You Are in the moment of your encirclement by that which you are not. But do you praise to the creation, even as you seek to change it. And know that what you do in the time of your greatest trial can be your greatest triumph. For the experience you create is a statement of Who You Are….. and Who You Want To Be…. ”
