Following it, I had a meeting about the Michaelangelo Fund. I noticed that business went better with bliss. So many things became manageable. Distinctions appeared in the moment to me. I rolled with events, without a scrap of resistance.
There were times when I could have resisted or postured or pretended. But now I knew that doing so would cost me the space. And I didn’t. I declared my completeness instead.
Everything goes better with bliss. Everything is more enjoyable. I can now see how business will be conducted a ways down the line. Knowing bliss means knowing how we’ll proceed.
The realizations that come are not the robust and overwhelming kind that I imagine lead to enlightenment. But the less robust and intense kind that result in an “Aha!” but are at the same time equally as rich as the deeper space in ability to commit.
Let me call this the “normal” realized space, the space that’s available short of Ascension. It sees a degree of realization arise which sheds light on something but doesn’t result in a deep, permanent and generalized unfoldment of consciousness. The latter would be supernormal, superconscious, to use Paul Ferrini’s term. (1)
When I’m in the space of transformative love, realization is dynamic, an ongoing process. The flow incorporates realization. It’s flavored with realization.
I can’t believe I’m writing this. And I could only do it with your support and encouragement.
Each article I write seems to go a little farther than the last – or at least that’s the sense for me. It’s an unfoldment, to be sure. But believe me, in my own mind, I’m walking the skinny branches.
Transformative love is a realization-rich space. I can no longer detect the difference between myself and the normal-realized state. I act from that space and don’t need to give a second thought to the process. Nice while I’m in that space. Very often I’m not. (But getting back there is getting easier.)
I saw today that transformative love and completion arise together. Completion brings peace and equanimity. In that calm space, transformative love arises.
I had the image in mind of a person flying through the air next to a glass building. They can see their reflection in the glass and the reflection flies along with them. In the same way, transformative love and completion fly together. Or perhaps flow together. In exact harmony and synchronicity.
And when one leaves, the other leaves as well.
I worked with completion today in one of the meetings. I found myself in circumstances that I could have become irritated with. I now reminded myself that if I chose to get irritated I’d lose the space of completion. And I declared myself complete again, from within the space of transformative love – so, from a normal realized space – and did not become irritated.
If I keep working with completion, I’ll create a new neural pathway and a more constructive behavior pattern. I’ll reprogram myself in a way of my conscious choosing and for a definite, useful purpose. And when I need to alter that program, I will.
(1) “The third stage is Super-Conscious Knowledge. It is the state of total surrender of all intellectual solutions, all need to control or plan. It is characterized by conscious unknowing. It is the state of the divine person, or co-creator. You are living at a time when stage two is coming to closure and stage three is being born.” (Paul Ferrini, Silence of the Heart.
