People write in and ask if they can write for us and, if so, what should they write about?
Leaving aside those people who are interested in the news, space travel, the workings of the body, etc., to those who want to write to express themselves, out of an impulse they may not even understand, I would recommend this:
(1) Write about yourself.
(2) More particularly, write about your process.
Writing this way is what a person does on the awareness path. And awareness is particularly valuable at this time of Ascension and reconstruction of Nova Earth.
But then it’s always valuable. Why is that?
Well, you and I are awareness. I wrote an article earlier on the difficulty we all have of seeing ourselves as, and realizing that we are, pure consciousness. (1) Or awareness, if you like.
But we are.
Who we are at essence is simple consciousness, a point in consciousness, a wave in the divine Ocean of consciousness.
Anything you see that’s solid is not who we are, who another is, who the world at essence is. All dissolves in the end into the Ocean of consciousness.
Now of course, I’m talking about things as seen from a very high level of consciousness. I mean “seen” either as:
(1) Seen briefly in a powerful spiritual experience, that allows us a glimpse into the way things really are, or
(2) Seen permanently when we occupy that level of being usually called the Transcendental or the Absolute.
So when we practice being aware, and expanding our awareness, we’re actually inviting the restoration of conditions that have us shed all about us that’s temporary, impermanent, ephemeral and unconceal all that’s lasting, permanent, eternal.
And that which is lasting, permanent, eternal is pure and unmodified awareness.
Not surprisingly, the more aware we become, the more we experience love, bliss, confidence, serenity.
So there’s ultimate benefit in practicing the awareness path and there’s interim benefit. In other words, the destination is magnificent but the journey is also marvellous.
So what should you write about? Write about what’s actually happening for you here and now. Write about what is right there in front of you. Write about who you are at this moment and who you just became an hour later.
Write about the barriers you’re encountering to full self-knowledge. Write about how you passed through the last barrier. Write about what this new state of being you just entered feels like.
If you can access your feelings, then write about them because knowing how you feel is what helps others to orient to you. It’s what has doctors and nurses respond (“I hurt.” “I feel sick.” “I’m hungry.”)
It’s what has everyone – spouse, teachers, students, neighbors, grocer, stewarddess, customer-service rep – know how to be with you, what you need, what to give you, which way to go. How you feel is the missing piece in most intentional conversations and articles.
And many people are not in touch with their feelings. They actually don’t know how they feel at any one point in time.
Ask them how they feel and they respond: “I feel that…” That’s actually not a feeling. It’s an idea. How do you actually feel?
In terms of telling us your process, when you go to write about something you’re undertaking, especially a personal process, you’ll either be talking about the state achieved or the obstacle.
If you were on an Enlightenment Intensive and said to me, “Tell me who you are” and I went inside and looked, I’d either emerge with a realization of who I was or else the barrier to knowing.
Most times it would be the barrier.
So what there would be to communicate is either the realization, or, more often, the barrier.
Barrier, realization, barrier, realization is what it will look like.
Except it’s more like barrier, barrier, barrier, barrier, barrier, barrier (x 100), realization.
But that nonetheless is what there is to communicate on the awareness path: Your realization or the barrier.
So what should you write about? You. Your experience. Your point of view. Your process. Your barriers. Your realizations.
As we all go forward on a path leading to Ascension and a new world, what all of us want to know is: How are you working your process? What success are you meeting with? What barriers did you encounter? How did you overcome them?
That’s my usual answer to people who write in, want to write for the blog, and don’t know what to write about. This blog is going to get bigger and bigger and bigger. So we’ll always need more writers. Consider coming aboard.
