The Divine Gift of Beingness
It seems to me so many are trying to figure out exactly why we are here, in this incarnation right now. And in a world of increasing craziness, exactly what are we here to do? How can we help?
It’s a question that’s enough to drive you crazy just thinking about it!
So what if the reason for your incarnation could easily be revealed to you from the current circumstances of your life?
The Universal Law of Attraction
In my perspective on reality, it’s not that each of us is here to do a specific thing, although it may at times – for very good reasons – look like that (I’ll return to why in a moment).
To me, practically, everything works according to the Universal Law of Attraction, which in essence means:
Everything works in the universe according to the configuration of consciousness. Whatever configuration we have inside, is creative and manifests outside of ourselves exactly the mirror we need in order to further unwind, evolve and grow.
Our purpose here is to shine our light ever more brightly, to express ever more authentically, to be all that we can be.
By the Law of Attraction, the mirror we create is our perfect tool for fulfilling that destiny. So to me, our destiny is not something that we do – although we will do many things. Our destiny is all about our unfolding beingness.
Simply Amazing Gifts of Beingness
So the gifts that we are given when we incarnate are amazingly magical gifts of beingness: like compassion, love, joy, interpretation, understanding, empathy, non-judgmental discernment, acceptance, surrender, creativity, catalysis, passion, commitment, focus, motivation, leadership, entreprenuership and the absolute ‘Merlin’ of pure magic.
I briefly mention these as words, but each alone is so incredibly bundled with possibility and expression, it is impossible to properly capture their quintessence.
You think you’ve mastered a degree of surrender, then the universe artfully configures some new cliff edge to show you where you’ve been hanging on. You think you understand how to truly manifest, the universe shows you a whole new box of tricks. Such gifts of beingess have endless expression – simply endless!
It seems to me, from copious exploration both in this life and many others, that the universe works tirelessly with its infinite palette of power to make one key thing happen (although in infinitely different ways). That is:
To provide continually updating, evolving, morphing and changing vehicles such that we can each express one or more of these gifts – to enable the gifts to truly sing.
By the word ‘vehicle’ I mean a situation, event, occurrence or experience. It could be a relationship with a particular configuration for example that pushes all of your buttons.
Why? So in experiencing your tightness you can confront it, evolve and grow beyond it. Or it could be a life-threatening or seriously debilitating illness that you just can’t seem to cure.
Why? So that you have the perfect situation to experience yourself and know yourself as something beyond merely physical.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Many people look into the outside world for their destiny not realising they’re already creating it! As the Oracle says to Neo in the film The Matrix:
“You’re not here to make a choice, you’ve already made the choice, you’re here to figure out why you made the choice.”
So if we can pause for a moment and reflect on exactly why we’ve created the circumstances we’re now in, then we’d realise we’re being offered vital clues for how to proceed…
The external mirror is showing us two things: both our distortions and our magical gifts of beingness.
If we can accept the distortions, not need them to go away, but explore who we are through them, then what happens is we tend to drop into the Void of Infinite Potential and from there, we touch a magical gift of beingness which is being reflected in the outside mirror.
Then all we have to do is to attune to that gift to have the most incredible creative impact.
The Divine Paradox of Manifestation
The divine paradox is, that when we’re in this place, we create exactly what we need in that moment, including all the necessary resources to fulfill our destiny – an expression of beingness.
Many people and spiritual teachings I’ve encountered, come at it the other way around: they try to manifest the outcome first. To me, this is like the tail wagging the dog. Actually you may get some initial success, because reality bends and warps around you if you focus hard enough.
But all you do is create an eddy current of distortion around you – an eddy current which is inescapably connected to the entirety of the flow. So in effect, over time, you summon the entirety of the flow to unwind your ‘eddy current’ – your manifestation.
Why not instead, simply hook up to the flow and have it express through you? Then you unleash the maximum creative potential of the universe through your being. You simply can’t fail; your creations are in alignment. What could be better?
Building the Flow
So if we can stop struggling to make a choice of what to do, and instead figure out what’s our highest expression in this moment, then what will happen, is that the universe will use its full unfettered power to support that gift of beingness in some way.
In which case, we simply don’t need to figure out what it is that we’re here to do, because that will happen as a natural expression of what we’re being.
What I’ve discovered, is that if I always come from beingess, if I always expand into my distortions and make space for the gift to arise and sing, then my life seems to be magically guided on a path – more a flow actually – which the more I align with, the more I give myself to, the stronger and stronger it gets.
It feels like being swept along in a magically creative torrent.
I don’t determine which way the torrent is going, what it is here to do, but I notice it has a consistency and pattern to it.
I could say I’m being a coach, or a teacher, or a facilitator, but in actual fact, whatever I end up doing, I’m just being me, and I observe this encourages others to be them. Then I laugh inwardly to myself: is there really anything else going on!
Right Action: the Only Truly Authentic Choice
It’s so often the case, in the Openhand facilitation we do, people are trying to figure out what choice to make in the outside world.
Why am I here? What’s is the purpose of my incarnation? They’re often struggling to do ‘this’ or ‘that’. Sometimes they’re creating so much internal stress around the decision it’s practically driving them crazy.
To me, it’s about finding “Right Action” – that which is aligned with the universal flow:
“Forget about needing to make a choice. Your higher consciousness has already chosen. Instead look first for the blockages you can expose, accept, expand into and let go of. Then, above all, look for the gift of beingness that is wanting to come through you right now. Look for it, feel it, embrace it, attune to it, give it wings and let it sing through you. Then Right Action will happen all by itself.”
If you can do that, you’ll truly change not only your world, but the wider one. There simply is no other authentic way.
