We carry a lot of concepts inside ourselves (opinions, beliefs, explanations, arguments etc.). Some of them are conscious, and we have thought about them, had discussions and have accepted them for ourselves. Others are unknown to us although they influence our thinking and actions. They are abstractions and generalizations from experiences, which we have already forgotten.
When we have open concepts at our disposal, we have access to more inner openness. The opposite is true in both dimensions: The more inner openness, the more liberated concepts we are able to understand and integrate; the less inner openness we have, the more we are looking for narrow concepts to build into our thinking and to argue with others.
Our wish to grow implies the need to change and open our concepts. The more fears we have, the simpler our concepts will be. A narrow and plain concept will best give us the safety we are looking for. A closed system provides us with the alleged assertion to have an antidote for any risk and any problem.
Our mind is basically a service institution. It creates concept – connections of thoughts, lines of arguments, philosophies, beliefs and ideologies -, which fit best to the inner climate of feelings.
Closed concepts serve for founding and supporting a narrow emotional atmosphere, e.g. the concept that the world is governed by evildoers, or the concept that life is strenuous. This asserts our actual feelings (helpless or burdened) and enforces the momentary mood we are suffering from.
Dr Brad, that amazing man over there in Seattle just sent me an email with this wonderful TED presentation he made.
What is obvious is that in India last autumn, I received some permanent changes in my energy body from Babaji. Some he made directly, some occurred through Shiva linghams, some occurred through the beautiful people that we played with and some occurred through the way India stimulates past life memories. And some occurred as a result of dealing with the overwhelming stimuli, which India is.
We can pretend that we are separated from Him, but He is always there, supporting us, even when He allows us to create our own misery. It would also seem that communicating with Babaji all the time – who is always there in the space between our thoughts – is not difficult either. How many of us are doing this? He is our ultimate friend.
What is also obvious is that Babaji expects us to create Heaven on Earth with our own intelligence and spiritual maturity. This can be achieved by having more conscious higher quality thoughts in our spiritual lives and religions, and by participating more consciously in politics, which includes local government. Participating in politics may involve giving basic spiritual education to our local elected representatives, as well as state, county, and national representatives. Some of them also require basic information about how republican democracy works. We have to educate our neighbors as well – concept by concept. All this is not very difficult.
Ever notice how much fear we have around connecting with our deepest feelings?
I have come to realize in my work with BioDynamic Breath & Trauma Release as this approach developed based on my experience of working with hundreds of clients, that most of us will do just about anything to stop ourselves from feeling our deepest emotions. We are desperately afraid to feel.
We spend much of our lives wasting huge reservoirs of energy and resources in the active avoidance of encountering our deepest selves. It is no accident that Facebook, Internet, medication, TV, food and many more numbing agents make up a booming industry.
But the price to pay for avoiding our inner fears is just too high. It costs us our life force, creativity and literally takes our breath away. We deprive ourselves of life nourishing oxygen to cut off the intensity of feeling.
What is it that scares us so much about feeling our feelings?
