NOTES FROM THE AWARENESS: 485

We want things to be about ourselves.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

We all want a good life, for circumstances to work out well—for us. Our world view tends to be self-centered.

Less than 500 years ago, Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for the then heretical belief that our planet and solar system weren’t the center of the universe. In a microcosm of this, we as a species tend to believe we’re the most important thing going on.

As individuals, we also favor the idea that our personal lives and agendas matter most. We form a concept of existence which includes our lack of understanding, misconceptions, prejudices, and limited experience and then project it onto our view of the world. This leads us to conclude that what we think is good for us is good for all of creation, in general.

Being steeped in the separation consciousness endemic in our third dimensional reality, we mostly see ourselves as separate from the divine and the rest of existence. We view creation as outside of us and our personal reality rather than knowing ourselves to intrinsically interwoven into the fabric of existence.

It would be as if one cell in or pancreas felt it was separate from and possibly at odds with the rest of our body. This separation fallacy, which may lead us to be afraid of “the other” and life itself, keeps us locked in limited and stagnant patterns of thought and behavior.

Today’s message invites me to be open to my role in divine interconnection. Creation is grander than I imagine and holds a myriad of possibilities I many not yet be able to conceive. By admitting to my conceptual limits, I open myself up for conscious expansion.

How about you? Does it feel like life is all about you?
