I’ve been away for awhile…a good two months. But, before I write a catch up, wanted to share this potent insight I’ve been mulling for several days.
Have been considering my personal role, and our collective role on the fringe, as we are keeping informed of all that’s appearing to transpire in the midst of the shift.
An odd memory came to mind. For those States-side, scoot back to the 90s when our commander-in-chief, under oath, defended himself against an incriminating question by saying, “…it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. Wait, what?!? Is, is. He was cleverly going for present tense = false. The transgression was not at that moment going on.
It is this kind of game the imposition is playing with us. We’re assuming we know the game. They know it precisely. If they can get us to use the word IS, they score.
IS is the definitive word of creation.
It is a statement. A potent statement that defines existence.
We know this from affirmation/declaration work. Always state affirmations/declarations in the present tense. That’s all there is: the present.
When we say, “They are doing x, y, z…,” we are co-creating that into existence with them. Everything the imposition is throwing at us we.are.co-creating via the word IS. When we say, “It is happening…” or even “It happened” we have just defined it into being. We have added our energy to the solidity of the thing or event, no less than when we say, this is a chair.
So, what about past tense? And future tense? Does it make a difference if there is only the present? Just a word game, isn’t it?
From here on, I am shifting my verbiage to ‘It appears (or seems) to be happening.’ I am acknowledging that what I perceive is actually a script written to capture me into that story; to gain my implicit agreement. Remember: It’s Go Til It’s No. Our agreement is implied until we say, No.
No longer will I allow my consent to be implied by co-creating synthetic events travelling down the synthetic timeline, simply by stating them into being. In fact, I’m seeing life, overall, as one big declaration and affirmation. We declare personally and affirm collectively. This is the co-creation thing. I’ve always wondered how I was ‘co-creating’ — feeling the guilt and shame of the life that I’d somehow invited, and an apparent failure at inviting in the life I’ve always felt was mine. But, that’s not it. I’ve simply stated things into being. I’m tired. I’m hurt. Not: my body needs rest; or, I feel emotionally exhausted. Just: I’m tired. Violà. I became the thing I stated.
And, I’m finally getting that this is also how and why gratitude works. It’s not so much what it is one is expressing gratitude for…it is the engagement of the words: I am grateful for…x, y, z. In stating, I am grateful, one creates oneself as a being of gratitude/the vibration of gratitude. You become resonant. Yes, feeling has absolutely everything to do with the power of it. Think for a moment how much feeling is powering I am tired. I am hurt. We’re talking wattage! More reactive feeling fuels the bad until we learn to proactively fuel the good, as in when we say I am grateful.
This feels immense to me. Incredibly empowering.
Is it just me? Or, do you get it, too? Thoughts?
p.s. it’s good to be back :-)
