Good Monday Morning, fellow “unassuming guru seekers,”
Sometimes answers sound confusing. That’s because they don’t fit into the box of thoughts that you are used to entertaining. Oftentimes those are the answers that are most appropriate for you to look at. Marty is concerned about his world collapsing (see below). My answer may seem drastic or wrong to you. Just be with it for a while. Get beyond how you usually think. You’ll like what’s on the outside of that box from which you select your thoughts.
I feel like my whole world is collapsing around me. What should I do? Any quick ideas?
muchas Gracias, Marty
What world is collapsing around You? Take a look at that world carefully, Marty. Take a look at all the effort you put into keeping those dramas and soap operas alive in that world. Try to fix one part of that world (one soap opera), and another starts falling apart. It’s a futile task to try and keep that world working because it is filled with troublesome relationships. It has to be. That is what has a world collapse around thee.
Go ahead, let it fall apart around you, Marty. I mean it. Stand aside and let the whole thing collapse. Just notice it collapsing because there’s nothing true about it – it’s all a lot of foolishness. Do nothing to save one of those dramatic scenes, Marty.
And then, when it has completely fallen apart – out of the ashes rises the phoenix! That’s you putting together a world that is really true to you; one with clean and valid relationships that support you with what you really want to do with your life. That kind of a world does not fall apart.
Ponder this for a while, Marty. It will begin to make complete sense to you.
Blessing to you, Rob
You live in your own unique model of reality. You created it. You call it your world. When you fill it with misery, it cannot last. It will fall apart. Let it. Start anew. Is this getting through to you?
Blessings & Love to all of you, Rob
PS Everyone is born onto this planet, but each of us create the kind of world we experience. It takes courage to admit that.
