When you realize that you have available to you the wisdom/guidance of a higher intelligence on a moment to moment basis, you feel deeply secure in your physical being. However, the only way to tap into this guidance is to “constantly” go with the pull of your life stream. How do you know if you are going with the pull of life? Quite simply, when you are going in the direction of life’s pull you don’t feel any resistance within you. It’s a moment to moment guidance, so there needs to be sensitivity to whether you are resisting your life’s pull on “moment to moment” basis – at some point this sensitivity to life’s pull becomes your second nature and your naturally make a choice towards aligning with it.
Trusting life’s intelligence over mind’s fears
The human mind, the conditioned brain, has a narrow vision or a ground view. The intelligence of your wholeness/life has the top view or the bigger picture. Who would you like to trust? The mind or the intelligence of life? The problem is that the mind is “noisy”, it can make a thousand arguments in defense of its fear-based, and external conditioning based, movement. The intelligence of your wholeness is not noisy but it’s felt as a “pull” because it generates a force of attraction towards the manifestation of your solutions and desired realities. When you go with this pull you will be privy to ideas, insights, inspirations and energy for the right actions with the right timing. This “pull” is real, you can sense it every moment, indirectly, because every time you oppose this pull you feel a tug of resistance within you (what we call emotional suffering).
Life is pure positive energy and its pull is aligned with manifesting well-being. Any thought which is based in fear, hatred and lack (no matter how justified it feels) is immediately in resistance with the flow of your life stream – there are no exceptions here, even the most subtle thoughts of low vibration create resistance to the strong pull of your life stream. This is one reason why physical life can be challenging when one is unconscious of this truth – the mind, and your being, in its unconsciousness is automatically aligned with fear which causes resistance to life’s natural pull towards well-being, and this resistance causes suffering; focus on this suffering creates more resistance and the vicious cycle continues. The only way to break out of this cycle of suffering is to become sensitive to the pull of life and let go of thoughts/actions that create resistance to this pull.
The challenge of going with life’s pull
Initially, your physically focused being will find it very challenging to blindly go with life’s pull. This is because your being is habituated to listening to the fear based, noisy, arguments of the mind and believing in a “struggle” based living. Your being feels quite terrified, initially, when it’s asked to follow the silent guidance provided by the pull of life, on a moment to moment basis. Firstly, this pull of life does not tell you before-hand where it’s taking you, it just moves silently. Secondly, the pull of life can, and usually will, go totally against the conventional, external, conditioning of your mind (which has been programmed by fear-based conditioning of the society). You will soon come to crossroads where you will need to make a conscious choice towards following life’s pull over following your mind’s externally conditioned intelligence – this phase is the most challenging phase in your transition (part of phase 3 of awakening, as mentioned in the post – Awakening, transcendence and return of focus).
When you make the choice of going with life’s pull, on a consistent basis, it soon becomes your second nature (usually within a few months). This is truly the beginning of enjoying your existence here, secure in the guidance of your life stream. There is no more a fear in your being about the future because you feel totally secure in the knowing that your life stream has your back, and it will always take you towards a reality of well-being (though the mind will still have some subtle fears as its a survival machine). I call this place – “effortless existence”, because every moment you are in the flow, the pull of your life stream provides the momentum and energy for actions and it orchestrates events for the most comfortable manifestation of your desired realities. It’s totally worth going through the initial challenge of transition (of phase 3), to come to this place – this where you really start enjoying the fruits of your alignment with your life stream.
