Carrying Your World

Our beliefs, karma, stress, cultural memes, learning, and more add to the scaffolding of our life. They also serve as filters for our experience.

An identified ego lays claim to what we do and experience to feel in control. These over-lays become entangled in our self-sense. There are literal threads connecting us energetically to our inner baggage and outer possessions.

As we’re here to be observers of unfolding Divinity, anything that is an impediment to that bogs us down and gets in the way. Yet who are we to judge what is an impediment? Many a challenge is exactly what we need to support the unfolding.

It soon becomes clear why unfolding spiritually becomes helpful. By going beyond our entanglements, we experience freedom and peace and begin to let go of those binding threads. Clarity roasts the seeds of karma, further lightening our load.

Some filters are useful for functioning in the world. We need not perceive every car or thought going by. Some structures include valuable learning, like how to ride a bike or do calculus. But we all carry some noise that serves only suffering. It was never our job to take on the world. Just to experience it unfolding.

Blaming ourselves for perceived shortcomings misses the point. Just recognize why we’re here and learn new skills for putting this stuff down and letting go of our entanglements.

Then we can come back to why we’re here and enjoy life’s rich and remarkable unfolding.

    Thank You David. This is a fun read, and a good reminder to not rely for support on the scaffolding of dysfunction. 🙂

    “…It was never our job to take on the world.”

    So true in this sense, feeling it as some sort of egoic burden, a reflection of our shortcomings.

    However, as you have so eloquently described it on this Blog, as we grow into an identity of the world [Para Brahman], we naturally take on the suffering in the world, because the world is now our body.

    Just like our individual body, we naturally strive to keep our world body healthy and thriving. Although the stimulus comes from the heart, it is much more than an emotional desire, and naturally culminates in action. Just as the world is part of the body, so can such an action [for world peace] be performed, without any local sign that such is occurring.

    The success of such an action doesn’t depend on force of will, unwavering belief, or strength of desire, rather the already established identity and awareness of the world within one’s body.

    This takes some light attention, as warranted. Not to an undue degree, though definitely an ongoing commitment of joy.

    Unlike the individual body, the world body cannot all at once be given an aspirin, so there is no direct physical panacea. Also the global weather of karma must be respected.

    Nonetheless, through directing peace and calm on one’s world body [living Para Brahman], an effect and momentum for same, is noticed out here too in Mother’s reflection. 🙂

      Right, Jim. It depends on one’s domain. Even cosmically, we’re not responsible for solving someone elses problems.

      But the the arena in which we work can expand markedly. In that sense, we can help another by clearing their environment and upgrading the group consciousness. This improves their problem-solving abilities.

    Yes, exactly. More direct work with the current atmosphere of consciousness than anything personal.
