Beyond Right or Wrong
If nothing was right and you could never be wrong what would you choose? It can be quite a feat to move beyond the need to defend for being right and against being wrong. It's one of the primary polarities at play here, and one of the most ingrained systems of judgment or tools of evaluation. Many of us are simply at the point of exhaustion, in other words, maintaining a need to be right or striving to get it right is just not that interesting anymore. The fear of being inherently wrong, getting it wrong, doing it wrong, or having done it wrong whatever "it" is, is also letting go. As this polarity lets go, it can be quite disorienting. What will we use to guide our choices, or motivate our choices when we're no longer needing to be right or avoiding being wrong?
We're awakening to having the true freedom of choice, the capacity to just know what's true for us, know what's most relevant for us and know what we'd like to contribute to creating, being and having more of in our lives. We no longer have to look at ourselves through the eyes of others, or culture, or society to decide or judge how we're doing. We can stay present, behind our own eyes, progressively more and more aware of our essence, our Being, our True Nature, the aspect of us that knows. We can live and move from this essence, more fully knowing the kindness, gentleness, gratitude, peace and calm that arises when we're no longer locked into this need to do it right according to someone else's standards. We no longer have to defend anything. Our Being, True Nature, Essence doesn't require defense, it just requires consistent acknowledgement to be more fully expressed as we are here and now.
It can be a pretty intense time for many of us, in the sense that our systems of navigation are changing so much. If we're no longer seeking for pleasure and avoiding pain, locked in the reward vs punishment model, nor are we trying to defend that we're good and not bad, right and not wrong, there is this space that emerges, that can feel a bit like a void space or space of total emptiness. What is it that generates movement in life when those old models or systems of navigation fall away? This is a question that many of us are living into. What generates movement? What leads, guides or directs action? Who are we now? What's important? What are our priorities? What are we here to be and do? Breath deeply in those moments where you feel like you're in a void or don't know what to do. When the pushing to do something or being pulled towards something is no longer there, which is actually freedom from manipulation and control, it is a true invitation. Just at the moment, many of us don't quite know what to do with the invitation. Do we sit and ponder life? Do we take action in various directions in hopes of one of the choices sparking the awareness of what's next for us? This time many represent the end of seeking and the beginning of having, and living from a total different energy, space and consciousness. Whatever this time represents for you, and wherever and however you are now, know that we are all here, navigating this together. More and more will become clear as we choose to ask questions, be the question and receive the awareness of what's possible to be and do and have now.
