This is a true story, which actually happened last Thursday, at the latest New Essenes’ gathering. At the end of our meeting, someone in the chat room said something to the effect: “too deep for me”. This simple comment prompted three events: an emotional disturbance, a descent into the abyss, and a whole lot of gold harvested from a multidimensional exploration of the shadow:
- Why was the judgment taken personally?
- Just how deep does the XPR rabbit hole go?
- Moreover, how deep do “I” need to go to not jump for joy from a compliment, or be upset at a critic?
Up and down we go, on the karmic wheel of life, having the same insane responses, expecting different results… It is so dizzying and yet so common that it has been spoken of in eastern and western ancient traditions as the Wheel of Time and as the Wheel of Suffering respectively: day is followed by night, and night by day. Birth is followed by death, and death by birth. Peace is followed by violence, and violence, by Peace. There is definitely a pattern emerging, which we could all recognize if only we would pay attention.
One moment, I am happy to be me; sunny side up! The next, I am trapped in clouds of gloom. Is your emotional weather as flippant as ours can be at times? Moreover, have you noticed how real the belief is that “I” will never move from this sticky despair, and never ever again see the light of the day! From there, I am destined to flip and that’s why I can’t wait to tell the story that I am happy. Rather than just containing that delicious energy and letting it heal me/ALL, I make proclamations taking “personal” responsibility for the success, that I got “it,” as if to say that doing so will protect my mind from being attacked by gremlins again. Clearly, I am afraid that something would come to knock me down from my pedestal, for “bad” or for “good”.
On and on, the Wheel of Time goes, I really don’t want to see the pattern: heck, if I did, the game would be over! So I keep on projecting myself on you. When not on you, I project myself above, below, to the right, to the left, to the front to the back: ANYTHING TO NOT BE CENTERED!
Is it because of my fear of falling – and of its metaphysical and physical implications – that I need to go deep: how else will I realize that ♫ Loove is lifting me higher, than I’ve ever been lifted befooore.” Yet going deep and diving into the abyss of the unconscious is scary. Moreover, it is so dark in there that it can be confusing. To overcome my fear to dive in and inquire, I need a direct path to the pearl, that is, to a clear and valid understanding. Then, as I find it, I can surrender, and stay centered: no more ups and downs! The SIX-Based Fractals (the main tool of the Path of XPR) help me to do just that.
Besides this newsletter, “too deep” triggered a new page for the New Essenes’ book, which completes in a fractal. This page “Warning: Deep Waters” will be the basis of our discussion in our next New Essenes meeting. We will begin our meeting at noon EST / 11 AM CST / 9 AM PST this Sunday and explore page 43 of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you have download the latest version). If you can join us live this time, great! If not, you may always listen to the archive or join us live for our next New Essene show via Elevate the Soul radio.
Included below is our meeting information, logistics and access to additional complimentary methods to learn more about XPR. Until then, peace be with you.
