They say it is always darkest before the dawn, and this is without a doubt, applicable to life, death and the search for truth.
In our deepest darkest moments there is a tension that exists. It manifests in the form of energy, which creates a dis-ease. While, were we to go beyond this point – it would lead us to liberation. There is the point of transcendence – a threshold beyond which pain will subside. It is only by letting go of past traumas, we can hope to free ourselves from this pain, we experience through remembering of the past. But in order to let go we must first meet our trauma head on.
It is inevitable – most of us experience unpleasant emotions at some time. But if instead of running away from these experiences; we recognise them for what they are, and embrace them as an opportunities to learn and change, then we will overcome these negative emotions.
This threshold can be happen at any time. I believe we arrive at these points on numerous occasions, throughout our lives. Then perhaps we retreat – scared of the threat of the pain continuing. And so, because we do not know or because we do not have the guts – to press on, the opportunity is lost. It comes down to holding on to awareness and having intent – to press ahead.
To push on regardless takes guts – and to take hold of the opportunity requires a certain knowledge. Do you have the energy required for the shift? It comes down to this. Like a catch 22 if you will – if you do not have the essential energy to shift your assemblage point – you will remain where you are. The experience will eventually disapate but your assemblage point will return to the customary position – And you will forget – all things pass away! But you will not learn. But if you take the leap; the energy needed to shift youself into this new reality, with a fresh perspective is waiting beyond the door…. However, the only way we can muster the energy needed, to go through this door is by recapitulation of our past tramas – if these are dealt with then we have the ability to let go……
The chicken and the egg – is it our minds, or our will or our spirit, which forces us through these thresholds of pain, or is it the energy we possess which enables us to have the impetus to go through the assemblage shift and dictates our abilities….
