Seeing Our Liquid Reflections
This profoundly intriguing and creative photograph, Liquid Reflections, by Emily Mort reflects a more accurate depiction of our reality.
Do you see your soul’s reflection? It’s all around you; in your body, relationships, circumstances, choices, words, and reactions. All of these are shaped by the little ripple effects you create with each energetic pulse of your soul.
In the post, Reflective Reality, I touched upon this dynamic of our experiential reality. For me this is quite a paradigm shift from what I grew up with, but as this perspective settles in, it opens up a world of understanding and insight into my personal life and “my world”, which interplays with the world at large. This reorientation of how we view our reality is one gained along the yellow brick road into InLIGHTInMenT.
This paradigm reveals our self-creating nature that is inherent to us simply being. We are constantly creating from within our soul out. Our constant energetic motion is creating the motion picture of our lives. We don’t effort. We just create. The effort comes in trying to create what we want instead of what we don’t want, which is where our training ground resides.
Our reality consists of energy. It’s fluid, in constant motion, and reactive to our soul’s output as a pool of water reacts to energetic vibrations. The water studies by Dr. Emoto show this dynamic in the most astonishing ways. These studies began my process of reframing how I saw my reality and the impact I had upon it. Hard surfaces cast illusions of solidity that blind us to our full effect on our perceived reality. We, from the inside out, are constantly altering its reflection. We are continuously modifying our reality with every vibration we send out from our soul with our beliefs, reoccurring thoughts, emotions, words and actions. In this, our reality reflects back to us our truth; what we hold as truth, not the Truth. However, as we begin to embrace this new paradigm of thought, we begin to align more to the Truth, which is the journey to becoming “enlightened”.
Thus, our seemingly static reality of hard surfaces is actually like a pool of water and our soul is the fount. The drops of water of our spirit fall from our soul into the space around us and create ripple effects; in our body, relationships, circumstances, present surroundings and in the collective human soul. What is happening on the outside is determined by what is happening on the inside. At the same time, the drops from others’ souls are creating ripple effects that impact our soul for they conjecture up a response from us. In this interplay, our consciousness in a constant state of change. Therefore, at any one time, our reality is reflecting and impacting our current soul state. But we must be slow to judge and steady to observe and learn; for often our reality isn’t reflecting what we first assume. A listening ear to the counsel of the Spirit of Truth enlightens us to the language of our reality.
Imaginations vs. Truth
When we begin to see our reality in this way, we see that most of our memories consist of our imaginations about our reality, versus the truth. This can be a liberating realization for it can help us to let go of situations we need to let go of that have enslaved us because we held them as a truth instead of an imagination. The brick laying process of the road of enlightenment is the diligent progression of our soul aligning to the Source and Center, thus the Truth, and away from our illusions we call truth.
We grow in wisdom and understanding as we learn from the ripple effects we create. We need not fear them, but learn from them. We learn to listen to what our reality is telling us and teaching us, which starts to become utterly fascinating as we develop this listening ear of mindful awareness. We learn not to be afraid to hear what it has to say knowing this experience isn’t about our perfection but learning in imperfection what we can’t in perfection. From this growing awareness, we obtain a faith in the divine love of our Creator and are able to stop blaming and being the victim; both of which inhibit our learning. Instead, we become students of our reality whose purpose is to teach us the ways of love through its imperfections. We learn through trial and error that only expressions of an unconditional love for all create truly desirous ripple effects, and this leads us to our ultimate choice.
The Ultimate Choice
With a self-creating nature, we choose what we will create. Thus, this reality presents us a choice; to choose to create a self-determined reality or a divine reality; to choose to create dark or light. It seems like an obvious answer but how many times do we do or want to do what we know we shouldn’t? How often do we find ourselves fearful of what God will do with our lives if we “trust” him? How hard is it to let go of control?
Initially, it may seem freeing to maintain control in a self-determined reality; to choose what we want, but it is our ultimate bondage because along with that choice comes the self-determined consciousness, where we judge good or bad, and that can only create darkness, or what is contrary to the ultimate good; for we don’t know as we ought to know. To choose to be totally governed by the divine consciousness that is always beyond us is our true freedom for in it we can only create according to the highest good as every expression is rooted in divine love and immortal harmony. It’s freedom from suffering, pain, fear, damaging control, and every other undesirable quality; and isn’t this the true freedom we desire? When we come to understand this choice, thus both sides of the decision, the choice becomes clear.
We are here to learn so that we can make a sincere informed choice in love for divine love as a self-creating creation. To make this choice wholeheartedly, in understanding, with no hesitation, wavering or turning back requires a certain level of awareness; one that our reality is constantly trying to enlighten us with. In all our learning, we are enabled to make the ultimate choice: to give up all choice that is counter to divine love, thus become totally governed by the divine consciousness. Thus, our hope isn’t in our ability to self-perfect, but in the unfailing nature of the divine love of our Creator to manifest our choice for oneness that brings to life our eternal expressions of divine potentials that take us into perfection beyond perfection.
