Heart to Heart 42

There is only Oneness, and Oneness chooses everything

Choices are just choices, events are just events.

It is us who attach meaning to them. We are meaning making machines and judgment machines. We attach value to almost everything. Some things are good; some things are bad, some things are right, some things are wrong. In truth, there is no good or bad, no right or wrong, only choices and events that we define with judgment.

We find ourselves stating “we need something”, needing implies there is something missing, we lack something. There is nothing you need; there is only what you choose. The word ‘need’ has baggage, the word ‘choice’ is cleaner. We don’t need anything. We choose everything.

This is how we create our lives. We make them seem so real that we totally buy into the events. If we did not, we would realize that this is not real and we probably wouldn’t be here very long. Once we see that Oz is behind the curtain we may as well return to Kansas. Some have asked why we would intentionally create war and famine and pain and suffering. I have two thoughts about this. First, as eternal, omnipotent powerful beings of light we cannot experience pain and suffering and so on and neither can anyone else. Of course in our human form we experience it all.  Secondly, as players in the finite game of life it is the things that could go wrong that keep us interested. In sports, it is the possibility of non success that keeps us interested. Think about it; if your team made every shot, scored every goal and won every game; you would soon lose interest. It’s the miss, the error, the strike out that keeps us coming back for more. It is the same with our lives. It is the mystery that keeps us in our skins time after time.

It is the unrequited love, the failed business venture, death of the body, a miscarriage of justice that has us hooked. If everything in your life experience was always juicy, you would soon lose your juice for life. And so it is. We intentionally limit ourselves in every conceivable way to make the game more entertaining.

Then for a lot of us somewhere between the ages of 27 and 30 something stirs inside. Something tells us that life is not quite as it seems. There is a divine discontent present. For many, we make major changes, like getting a divorce, or moving, or starting a new business. We know that we want to make a change and create something new. In Astrology this is the time of the Saturn return. When the position of your natal Saturn comes full circle and triggers within you the feeling that something is up. This trigger point repeats itself so if you are somewhere between 56 and 60 you might feel it and then when we are near 84 it tunes us in again to why we are here and what we have left to do. This is a time to set yourself free! From my heart to yours, Thomas
