I was told recently to lighten up… not the first time I’ve heard that… but something was different. Wear bright colors… laugh a lot… cut out the red meat and junk food… eat more veggies… try to eat organic. Let me ask you a question; who doesn’t know that? It only makes sense, everybody knows that.
Another thing that came up for me at the same time was meditation… hell I been trying to meditate off and on all my life… again, everybody knows this stuff is good for you. Seems like my life, the universe, God, situations, something, keeps coming back to these simple things… and basically I’ve said ‘no’ to them on a pretty regular basis, not that I want to admit to it, but honestly that’s what I’ve been doing.
This time, so far, I started to look at it a little differently… maybe cause I’ve spent a very small time in meditation, I don’t know. Anyway, a title to a movie I’ve never seen keeps popping up in my head; The Unbearable Lightness of Being. In my meditations I’ve been ‘seeing’ that ideas flow from the source of everything… they are like air, actually lighter than air… shear lightness of being… these ideas of love and light, light up in my mind… my mind works with the light and makes it dense, kind of solidifies ideas into thoughts… the thoughts get more dense as they move into the physical world called my body… my body then moves the dense material around to create what my thought of the idea looks like, creating the world as I see it. It’s creation working through me, creating my reality.
When I have struggles or ‘problems’ in my life it is because I am trying to make changes from the dense material world, but that is not how creation works. Life gets heavy, problems seem real, life is a struggle, I can’t feel the joy, the love, I feel separated from God, and I create a distorted reality, I don’t have time to eat right, so I eat, fast junk food, I’m always busy trying to catch up so I don’t have time to meditate or pray. Even when I do pray it’s often selfish or done hastily in compliance mode.
So I need to remember it’s all light and love. Creation allows for it to become a physical experience. When I’m in pain or problems I just need to lighten it up… be enlightenment… and not get caught up in distorted reality. In the world I can do those things I already know to do; eat right, see the colorfulness of life, and laugh at the joy underneath it all and most of all… live from the unbearable lightness of being! Thank you God!!
