I was talking to a colleague when someone planted the idea in my mind – out of nowhere – that it’s all about emergence.
For us it’s all about coming out of our shells.
What is “it”? Growth. Enlightenment. Ultimately Ascension.
We’ve been conditioned by a hundred forces all our lives. It’s time to come out of the shell of our own conditioning, our own programming.
I look back on my last few decades and I see a person constantly struggling to emerge – just as in the graphic accompanying this article (above). Struggling to stop wrestling with his Father. Struggling to find the ground under his feet after dissociating.
Michael put the matter precisely and succinctly:
“The human heart, the esoteric heart, the spiritual heart, the seat of your soul in many ways was fractured. [Yes.] In the truth of Ascension, this is what you are doing: Healing and opening to a greater capacity of love consciousness.” (1)
I couldn’t have put the matter better myself. Yes. In one shattering moment, my Father yelled at me from mere inches away from my seven-year-old face and my young and fragile made-up self fractured into a thousand pieces. It was not to be pieced together again until age 58. Michael captured it perfectly.
And I was opened to a greater love capacity on March 13, 2015. First awareness of what real love is. A fourth-chakra heart opening. (2) I also know the seat of my soul, where the Light is. (3) So I know that of which he speaks. We speak the same language.
Nevertheless, here I am, still behind the same familiar shell I erected around myself to prevent anyone ever getting too close to me again. No spiritual experience so far has erased my conditioning or self-programming. (4)
I imagine that was the decision I made: Not to let anyone get that close to me again.
Karate. Being a hermit. My “scared wolf” look, my wife called it. All to have others keep their distance, stay away from me.
I was the Humpty Dumpty Man. I had to put Humpty together again, to choose whether I wanted to go under from it all or … emerge. It’s been a journey of emergence ever since.
It’s all about emerging from that shell we have around ourselves, in my opinion. I need to emerge from mine. Hey, lemme go first.
For no reason. For no known or sought reward. Without creating residue.
Like a newborn chick, we just emerge from the shell.
At last to find ourselves, present, happy, and peaceful.
