Occasionally, I offer short bits of wisdom on my Spiritual Awakening Process Facebook page. I’ve copied three of the more recent, popular posts and shared them here.
Many people are obsessed with finding their life’s purpose, but that does not come from the awakened self. That search comes from the ego still trying to validate itself. It isn’t even validating you–the real you. The real you needs no validation. The True Self needs no reason to be or to love or anything else. It already is, and as you rest more deeply in this awareness, it becomes more and more effortless to just allow the unfolding of life with no need for purpose.
Here’s a YouTube video about The Purpose of Life.
Falling Back Into Your Ego
Whenever you “fall back,” that’s typically a sign that the ego is at work. So it’s a time to ask, “Why did I think or act in such a way that is not true to me and/or is unhealthy?” “What am I trying to do?”
With the ego, it’s doing one of four main functions:
- Get rid of
Apply those 4 possibilities to the situation, and you’ll start to get some answers. You can then go further in inquiring why you were performing that ego function. What is the deeper fear or desire at work? In this way, you can use any kind of backslide as a chance to let go of your ego further and realize greater spiritual freedom.
The Inability to Receive After Asking for Help
Here’s an interesting topic. Many people cannot accept help that they’ve requested.
I’m sure people are familiar with the issue of people not being able to even ask for help, but the ego can cause problems at any stage of seeking support. One of these stages is after a request has been made and accepted by the party that received the request.
My intuition has me reply to most requests for help. I reply and then receive nothing back. And I know this has nothing to do with me nor spam filters. It happens because the ego gets triggered by the reality that the person is getting support. Some issue rises up that says, “No!”
This happens in all kinds of situations. Perhaps you’ve had someone ask you for help. You say, “Yes.” Then you never hear back from the person.
Assuming that the person hasn’t resolved what they wanted help with, this is just another situation where the ego is at work. This could be a self-worth issue. This could be a fear of looking weak. This could be a lot of different issues.
All I can say is that if you ask for help, follow through when the person you asked says, “Yes.”
If you’re the party being asked for help, all you can do is say, “Yes,” if it feels true. It’s not your part to do any more than that.
