When we are Choosing to walk a Middle Balanced Way we lean first on one leg then the other. We walk first to the right as we take a step, then to the left as we take the next step, then to the right again, and the left again … and our spiritual journey unfolds.
We learn to Feel our Way, alternating between our masculine and feminine energies ~ keeping our self balanced and upright; we somehow find our Way. Often, it is only as we look back that we become Aware of our zigzagging Journey; the Path we have already ‘travelled’ providing us with a story about the Path we are now on.
Yet … is there a Higher Way beyond the Middle Way? Yes, I do Believe so.
The Middle Way has been like Progressing along a series of stepping stones … a Path that has helped me to Understand all sorts of different personalities, situations and associations. As I’ve weaved and dodged between the “obstacles”, emotional attachments, and the “Gifts” that have Provided me with a deeper Understanding of my Creative Ability … I have begun to Choose a Higher Way. It is no longer a path between the Dualities, more a Path incorporating the Dualities … Using them as Resources.
As long as we are doing OUR Right Actions Consciously, we are Progressing with Awareness. Although, it is not that we need to be forever moving “forward” or actively demonstrating our intentions to be ….. [whatever they are] …..
Sometimes our Intuition says “wait here” as there is a contact or some additional information coming our way in a moment, or in another “Now” that is still to happen. We can miss these gentle messages if we are too busy trying to make our life happen according to an emotional attachment to a specific outcome.
Today I have two possible recommendations, we either stay Centred on our Middle Way between the dualities of “good and bad”, “light and dark”, etc being Aware of our reality and balancing our Energy appropriately so our Consciousness Flows in and through us … Knowing everything has its right time, right place and right reason …
Or Rising above the situations and associations (that would normally involve us emotionally) and use our Creative Intelligence AND Intelligent Creativity to Consciously Cause a Higher Way for the Highest Good of All Concerned.
Trusting our Progress in materialising our dreams is a Right Attitude while we are focused on our Middle Way. Just as Trusting our Progress in Creating our entire Reality is a Right Attitude while we are focused on travelling our Higher Way.
The Middle Way involves being Aware that temptations (often involving dependence on people, material things, jobs, substances, etc) Distract us from what we deem important (our Personal Values and Expectations), thus causing confusion or the blurring of our focus, our view of our Way, our Right Action.
The High Way is not without Distractions … they are more subtle though. I find I need to come back to Thinking and Feeling “correctly” as I am no longer blaming other people and circumstances for being distracted, I now Know it is my distracted Thinking, that I allowed, BEFORE I Created any apparent Distractions. The High Way involves an intense Focus on Communicating with our Consciousness with NO interference from the mundane. Which is not to say we can’t relax and take a couple hours off to watch a movie or read a book. But we now stay much more in touch with how we watch a movie or read book. Similar to being Mindful as we sweep the floor, but not just Observing our self, actually continuing our Conversation with Consciousness in a Constructive way.
Distractions inadvertently teach us about the need for a clear focus. But what for?!
Because a Clear Focus is a Resource, something we achieve as we release our lower tone emotions.
So, whether we are Progressing through the emotional maze found on our Middle Way or Consciously Flowing on our High Way … regardless of all the excuses and/or justifications we may have prepared … staying FOCUSED on our Right Actions and Intelligent Creativity produces Constructive outcomes. Whereas being Distracted and allowing our self to wander too far to the ‘left’ or ‘right’ of our Path merely produces reminders of the importance of our Path, our Purpose, our Personal Values and Expectations … our Spiritual Evolution.
With Awareness we learn to Feel the difference between Distractions and Opportunities … Distractions feel “yuck” while Opportunities feel “Yum” wherever we are at! ♥
