This has been a very interesting week at Authentic Freedom Academy – both personally, and professionally. The theme of the past 18 months has been LET IT GO (cue Elsa) and there has been more and more letting go than anyone could have imagined back in January of 2015 when this all began (it really began LONG before that….this was just the compressed, hurry up and get this sh.t done version of YEARS of letting go and moving on!).
And thank God/dess we had no idea the extent of the letting go or we may have quit before even getting started. Because this is ultimately what all this LETTING GO has been about……to prepare us for a WHOLE NEW BEGINNING…..
And this new beginning is HERE and it is NOW (cue the Fifth Dimension…literally).
First of all….take a deep breath and allow yourself to rest for just a moment in all you have accomplished on your own personal journey:
It started by learning how to connect with your God-self, rediscovering the bliss, peace, contentment and love that your Godself IS. For awhile you may have felt as if this was the key, the purpose of the life journey – to learn how to be God. But if you are like many others you learned the hard way that this is NOT what the human journey is about as you struggled to pull yourself up out of the pile of mala beads and zafu cushions with angelic choirs ringing in your ears, disappointed, despairing, lonely and BROKE because your life purpose HERE is not to be God (we are already gods).
Your purpose here is to be HUMAN. But not the kind of human we have been accustomed to……instead, we are here to BIRTH a NEW/ORIGINAL way of being HUMAN.
HUMAN 2.0 is not about being human as we have known it – fearful, separate, angry and violent. Human 2.0 is also not about being God. Instead, Human 2.0 is about being HUMAN in the way that Jesus was human, in the way that the Buddha was human, in the way that the Dalai Lama, Amma, Anandamayi Ma, Yogananda, and many others who have gone before us have experienced their human/godself.
Human 2.0 is about the complete and full integration of our Godself and our Humanself…..not escaping the human condition so as to be God, but allowing our Godself to be fully embodied in our HUMAN self. In other words, Human 2.0 is about God living IN and THROUGH us – or another way to put it – God walking around on this very planet in our bodies. We are God walking around in flesh.
The funny thing about Human 2.0 is that this is in fact as it has always been….we just didn’t know it because of the veil of separation we chose in taking on the human condition so that we could evolve the human condition to where we are today (are you dizzy yet???).
Which brings me back full circle. WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD! A world in which we KNOW our Godself. A world in which we live from our Godself. A world in which we act as Gods – allowing LOVE to guide and direct our lives and acting only from this place and perspective of LOVE. ONLY from LOVE.
We have arrived….even if we aren’t quite feeling it yet….we are here, exactly what we came here to do and why we’ve struggled through the last several years of what often felt like HELL. (Cue Panic at the Disco!)
Which then brings me back to full circle again….this has been an interesting week at Authentic Freedom Academy and it is because of this week’s theme that I know we have arrived. EACH and EVERY client (and in my own work that preceded this week) who set foot in my office this week exhumed the deepest, darkest of their core wounds and brought them to the surface to be healed and released (congratulations WARRIORS….you did it!…cue Imagine Dragons!).
The moral of the story is that there is NO BAGGAGE ALLOWED in the New World. We do not get to step fully into our Original SELF with the remnants of our Core Wounds still intact. We must be purged, freed, released and healed of our CORE WOUNDS so that we are once again free to live as our original self – FULLY HUMAN and FULLY DIVINE. In this we know beyond the shadow of a doubt that we are LOVE and that every situation we encounter arises in service to this LOVE. If the situation seems to trigger our fear, our anger, our hurt or our shame, it is because there are parts of us that still don’t know we are LOVE. If a person triggers our fear, etc. it is because a part of us have forgotten we are LOVE. From this perspective, we are done with blame, resentment, transference and projections and only live in search of where LOVE wants to be known in us. Or as Jesus said, “Love your enemies.”
Welcome to the New World – a world built out of love, for the sake of love, in service to love where we know the LOVE that we are and where we allow this LOVE to live in and through us.
In other words: WELCOME HOME!
