Seeing Go(o)d Everywhere

After more than 30 years of practice, I no longer subscribe to the narrative of evil. I only subscribe to the recognition of the many permutations of creation, the recognition that every creation is a cell in the body of Consciousness/Creation/God, all of it a “child” of “God”, and the recognition of the innocent and universal core values behind every expression of Creation/God, including the ones that appear tragic, or that I don’t like. Every permutation of Creation is a face/phase of love.

Its not that I don’t acknowledge horrors. It’s that I recognize that every pain I have is a pointer to my own core values trying to be attended to, and integrated, no different from a stomach that grumbles when it needs to be fed. I recognize that my core values are my Divine face of Love/Creation/God.

When I feel pain, I do five steps of release work and generative problem-solving:

1. Fully be with the voices of the pain, because the monkey mind voices are a gift, a clue trying to point out the underlying yearnings and core values  (and I listen to the grumbling also because what we resist persists, and spiritual perfectionism and spiritual bypass have never resolved anything for me)

2. Unpack the primary feelings and needs (core values) trying to be heard behind the monkey mind voices and pain body

3. Move my focus from the voices or narrative or the story / thoughts / beliefs, and toward the felt sense/rain dance of experiencing the core values already fed, fulfilled, as if already happened exactly as my heart wants it. I take as many breaths as I need to exhale the pain or grief or frustration or anger, and inhale the rain dance of the satisfied, restful experience of the core values already fed, already fulfilled, already as my heart wishes.

4. I repeat #3 until my emotional charge shifts to a 2 or less out of 10. When this is complete, there is nothing left except my expanded connection to my own core values (this unique moment’s face of Love)

5. With the clarity of the underlying yearning, and disentangled from any beliefs or blame, I make a simple, doable request of myself or others that would feed that yearning in 10 minutes, right now.  When in doubt, my request is to ask others what request they would ask for given the current needs on the table, and/or I ask Higher Self/Consciousness/God to guide me, or I ask myself to surrender and trust Grace. Or I just ask someone to sit beside me, or give me a hug.

With this practice, I see no evil, hear no evil, and I speak less evil. Every bit of Creation is an attempt at Love’s expression, sometimes bent tragically but innocently through the hands of those who do not have this particular practice, or the skill or resources to do it. I am more and more curious every day, and more and more able every day, to uncover the innocent core values behind phenomena that pain me.  When what pains me is a tragic act of nature, I am better and better every day at grieving without resistance, so that i can fluidly return to my rain dancing, core values and requests.

With this practice, I see Go(o)d everywhere, more and more every day, and am a more contributing cell in the Greater Body. With this practice I am more and more enjoying, even when I’m not enjoying. With this practice, I am better and better every day at connecting to Higher Self, the face of Love, that I Am.

I hope that sharing this out loud might serve you or someone else during a time of need.

With so much love, and blessings to you for the new year,

Maya
