The Undoing Unfolds Through You
I’ve spent my entire adult life looking into this mind, so it was rather startling when things happened in it that I did not expect. How could I have missed that the self’s life was going to radically change?
Looking back now I see shifts that occurred in this mind regarding the self (body/personality) that seem to have been preparation for this major shift. And I also see I missed them because I was not living through the self. I felt and watched the shifts, but I also let them go because I wasn’t living there anymore.
I’ve written that in the four years between the ego (personal thought system) falling away and my acknowledging it, I experienced the Awareness of Truth (Holy Spirit) and therefore peace, but also a barren place in my mind. There was also a thread of pain that accompanied the barren feeling which grew as time went on. I now understand that the barren experience was the missing ego. It was what told me to identify with the self. Without it, I was simply experiencing the self’s shifts as distant and interesting, but nothing I spent much time thinking about. My attention was on Truth. And the pain I felt was a sense of loss. The barrenness and pain were things I expected to understand more in time. And, of course, I now do!
Without realizing it, more and more I was letting the self just be in the flow of the universe as I rested in Truth. Of course, even if I’d paid more attention I would not have understood what was coming. And I did, eventually, sense something big was coming. I just didn’t know it would be HUGE.
The lesson here is that whatever you are conscious of, your part in the Undoing is always unfolding through you.
