“Do you want to know the Truth?” That must be the most powerful question an advisor can ask! We knew it as a child: wanting to know the Truth – and even more deliberate, “choosing” to know it – will change our life. And change is, of course, the last thing on our list, since most of us use our addiction to control to make sure that things remain as they are, so that we’d feel safe!
Doing so, we must resist a tremendous force – the Force of Destiny. We are told that we are here to have lots of money, a marriage, children, stay fit… While all of those options are great, we keep on ignoring the nature of our creative Power, by believing that creation happens by us, instead of through us! Ah, how wonderful would it be to open to the consciousness of a mystic such as Hafiz: “I am a hole in a flute that the Christ’s breath moves through: listen to this music; I am the concert from the mouth of every creature singing with the myriad chorus.”
When not being “W/Hole,” we try so hard to make things happen, we end up between a rock and a hard place, attached to outcomes and forgetting to smell the roses! That’s a whole lot of suffering! Truth be told, “Life is suffering.” The Truth of suffering is the first of the Four Noble Truths of the Buddha. It is followed by the Truth of the cause of suffering, the Truth of the end of suffering, and the Truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering.
Yep, “Life is suffering:” we just need to be born, to age, to become ill, to lose a loved one, to not get what we want, or even to get what we want! However, what can’t we – why can’t I – accept that pain is universal: ONE story? Accepting would certainly remove a big layer of suffering! If each generation is meant to grow the gifts of the previous one, the New Essenes humbly offer the XPR version of the Four Noble Truths, namely “the FOUR Forces.” Not only life is suffering, but it is also violence: doesn’t one black hole feed on millions of stars? Do not thousands of children die every day? Do not teeth chew, grind and crush – even when on a vegan diet?
When we can’t accept the violence brought about by natural forces, how could we embrace the most formidable of force of matter, which is no less than the feminine, the mother herself? We don’t even understand that matter is mother: same word! What if feeling that force would assist us in choosing the Truth that can set us free?
Join us: when two or more are gathered, the force must be with us! We will inquire on the FOUR by which to be free, using P47 of the New Essenes eBook. We will begin our meeting at 6PM CST / 7PM EST.
