Polishing the statue, in my view, is the only real job we have.
Completing our core issues or vasanas and dropping or stopping our conditioned behavior are the ways we polish it.
Once we do that, we’re vibrationally positioned to experience transformative love, bliss, innocence, etc.
We’re partially ascended at the moment and going up gradually. But the signpost at the end of this particular Ascension journey is marked “Sahaja Samadhi.” “Sahaja” means “natural.”
Once we complete our dropping of the constructed self, the mask we wear, we’ve unveiled the natural woman and man. That’s the task, writ another way.
Our progress is gradual for a time and then sudden (peak moments or enlightenment); then gradual for a time and then sudden.
I’m continuing to polish my statue. What I’m polishing away at the moment is my favorite stance, pose or posture, which I said in an earlier article was the complainer.
Long story: Runt of the litter, wanted attention, became the local critic, skeptical, unable to let love in, yada yada.
Some people might need to learn how to complain. I need to learn how to stop complaining. I know that complaints are acceptable under certain circumstances but I have miles to go before I meet that exception. And when I do, I’ll handle it with my eyes closed. I know complaining.
Up till now, the conditioned behavior I’ve observed in myself was managed simply by stopping; that is, desisting from the actions that arose and would have been annoying or harmful to others.
Stopping complaining needs an added element. Because it’s not only a line of behavior, but a whole stance, pose, or posture. I need to add more weight in the form of a needed, verbalized reminder (“Stop complaining,” I tell myself) or an affirmation (“I see the perfection in things” or “I see and love the person under the mask”).
It’s almost as if I need the added weight of a fictitious someone telling me or reminding me to go a different route on this one. It takes that degree of formality to rouse me to … non-action.
A pose or stance is more difficult to complete than a simply rote-learned or other-imitated line of behavior. It’s more complicated and has more steps than a simple line of behavior.
A person who has mastered their conditioned behavior, in our society, is called self-possessed and mature.
As responsibilities widen and grow, it becomes more and more important to be through with my unconscious conditioned behavior. As things get going, the penalty for not being complete with my past (which is what it amounts to) also rises and rises.
