No matter how long or deep has been your ‘journey’ through Self Discovery, there are moments when ‘high emotion’ can overtake you. It is very easy to fall back into the illusion that its about the narrative taking place and this ‘finger pointing’ … no matter how justified it may seem, is never what its REALLY about.
When one has dissolved much of the conditioning that clouds the ONE SELF they Really Are, only ‘whispers’ may remain of those controlling gremlins. But when they are all that is left, there is often a ‘stain’ at the bottom of the pot that you have yet to scrub away and the only way to deal with it is through some high drama that gets you to focus intently on it. These events that bring on high emotions are enormous blessings in that regard and when the ‘fire’ subsides and many deep breathes have been taken, that is the moment to gaze deeply into the embers where you will find the remaining conditioning.
For this, as always, Self Inquiry/Surrender is the direct route HOME.
