This is a continuation of the previous post regarding “How to Deal With Frustrations.” It speaks of learning to understand life as an ongoing dream.
Dear Higher Self…How to deal with frustrations?
Understand that when things become increasingly uncomfortable for you in your inner and outer environments, the Universe is pushing you to move into a completely different mindset. It makes things uncomfortable because it is a way to awaken you to the path you are meant to travel.
Dimensions are opening up. Follow the trail within and open yourself to the energies and lessons that are there for you. It is about relaxing and remaining even-minded during the most challenging of situations. You are not meant to stagnate in one place! The frustration you feel is natural but also unnecessary. Relax into the consciousness of your nature, into the power of your Higher Self. Realize the fluid nature of thought and mind. You can create the environment you long for if you would only drop attachments to the hard core of beliefs you have about life and about survival in the world.
The environment is an ongoing dream that requires a certain way of thinking and believing. Drop all thoughts and beliefs and just experience and Be in the powerful moment underlying the dream. Awaken now! You only dream that you are sitting at a table drinking coffee and eating pumpkin scone. The sum total of your experience may be pleasant at the moment…and it is also one that is familiar because it is a repetition of what you have created before. It is predictable and known. As you relax into what is “known” there are certain laws that you can expect and count upon to repeat this particular scenario. You also have memories of a different type of dream that is not so pleasant and that is subject to certain laws: The dream of lack and limitation is an ongoing dream because it is part of the worldly mindset that you resonate with…it too is predictable and ongoing.
But how to change this dream?
The question “how” (as you ask it) comes from the same dream and as such can only deal with the laws of the dream. The question “how” resides in the realms of learning to play by the rules governing the dream of limitation and so it can only make you a better player in the same dream.
Your prayer and desire has been about awakening from the dream. Engaging the mind in “how” is still in the realms of limitation and delusion. Of course the search and desire begins in the mind and with the thoughts of “how” but ultimately the realms of mind cannot satisfy your prayer for freedom.
No amount of teachings can bestow the ultimate gift of freedom. They can only intimate or point in the direction of enquiry, but ultimately even the teachings and teachers must fall away in order to allow the flowering of freedom to occur.
The patterns of your thoughts keep you locked into a certain type of existence that is subject to certain laws and restrictions of the dream. When you know and experience your circumstances as a dream, then you can change it to manifest according to how you change your thoughts and beliefs.
Your present existence is a reflection of the habits of thinking you have built up around the dream. You do not know your existence to be a dream and so you continue to be swept along in the nightmare of suffering and change that seems to be beyond your control.
Drop all anxiety! The things you worry about will loosen their grip as you deepen your awareness of Being. A new dimension is pushing itself into your consciousness that will allow you to see the underpinnings of your present challenges that seem so real and unmanageable. It is just a matter of watching the show without letting the chatter of ongoing thoughts interfere with the experience of the moment. This seems so simple and the mind cannot fathom such simplicity to be effective. Observe and listen! The awakening happens only in the moment!
