There are many who question things like love or God or a higher power in the universe. Especially after a significant loss or failure that can cause a person to feel disappointed and lose trust in the existence of a higher power. “How could a loving God let this happen? .. Especially to a person THIS good!!” they wonder. And after this great disappointment what may follow is a ‘breakup’ with the universe. A questioning and doubting process that causes a person to seek evidence to support their decision to cut their heart off from the pain they feel is a result of trusting in the universe.
But like any relationship, its your expectations that caused your disappointment, not the relationship itself. And just because your expectations were not met, doesn’t mean the relationship never existed. In a loving relationship you do not always get what you want, but you always get what you need – love. Even though it may not always appear that way, especially when there is pain involved.
Most wants come from the Ego, and satisfying Ego needs rarely serves your higher interests. For example most people would ask for an easy, fun and security (predictability) but its the pain and unpredictable friction that causes the most spiritual growth and Soul polishing. A loving universe knows this.
Cutting ourselves off from the universal flow is exactly what our Egos would like us to do. Trusting and relying only on only yourself ensures that the Ego gets to do exactly what it wants to do, in the name of free will and independence. And denying the existence of any kind of consequence in this life or beyond is the final step to the claim the throne of your life. All decisions will be dictated by the Ego from there. The ‘king’ of your life becomes your intellect and rationalizing.
But instead of denying a relationship exists with a loving universe, we can use pain as a sign that we we had the wrong expectations. And loss as a sign that we were on the wrong path. We can trust that there is a kind energy at work guiding us to exactly where we need to be IF we are listening for it. This faith will make it easier to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances and loss. Also, it makes the quest to experience higher levels of spiritual energy your true north.
No need to overthink things: Life simply is- no expectations, and we are always being guided to the best life possible!
The intellect may ask what evidence do you have that this higher power even exists? And the answer is very important:
The most important factor for either supporting or denying the existence of a higher power is WHERE you gather your evidence. The physical world is not the best place to look for spiritual evidence. Much like the air is not the best place to look for water. Although you may find truth for higher dimensions in the physical, especially now as science is cracking the code on quantum physics and the mysterious power of our DNA – even when they crack the code it will only be revealed to your intellectual understanding.
You cannot fully experience water in the air. You must dive in for your senses to truly experience water. You can study water all day long but no explanation can fully explain what its like to satisfy a thirst, swim underwater or surf on its waves. Its the experience of water that makes it real beyond our intellectual understanding of its molecular composition.
What dimension are you gathering your facts from: do you look for the answer to spiritual questions in the physical? Then you have not really dove in yet.
Science is good at explaining away the non-existence of a creator. This gives a person plenty of intellectual ammunition to explain away the existence of anything more than we can see in front of us. And while believing that ‘this is all there is’ can deepen appreciation for this individual lifetime it can also cause greater stress around limited time and cause great fear around death.
Ironically, if there was nothing more, you would not be disappointed, because you would not even be aware of the nothing more to get disappointed! And disappointment wouldn’t even exist. So there is NOTHING to fear!
The answer to the existence of love, a higher power and the loving intention of this power guiding us is through the gateway of our heart. There is no other way to understand this except when you dive in through the pain and feel the love and magic behind it all once again.
When the heart remains closed off, you won’t even be able to gather evidence for the existence of ‘something more’ from this plane. The moment you truly open and clear your heart of pain you will feel a love and lightness coming in from all corners of the universe. Because love is the only REAL thing that exists in the universe and all of the material conditions of this universe are darker energies that we get to ‘play’ with until we discover its all a game and love is the only truth; the highest frequency that contains all matter within it and the ultimate goal of all our journeys.
But like any game there are consequences. And in the game of life you will FEEL the heaviness of those consequences. Pain is not the enemy as long as it moves you towards a path of higher and more loving energy. As a spiritual warrior we embrace pain as part of our path. We want to experience the full richness of pain in the heart to burn through to the next stage of our journey which is to become helpers to those who haven’t crossed that line. And from a clear heart space we will have all the evidence we need for the existence of this love and a higher power behind it. This power is actually who we are in our highest form. It is the one heart / one mind that we are all apart of.. this is home.
