The Rock and the Hard Place – The War Between You and You

The Rock is you, your human mind and all its mundane programming. This is the mindset that tells you things like: this is so or this is what we believe. Or this is what is expected of you. Or this is what good people do. Or this is what good mothers do. Or this is what good Christians do. You get the picture. These are the messages that we have been programmed to believe and act upon as an integral part of being humanized on planet earth.

The Hard Place is your Soul’s desire for freedom, Truth and Joy. The Hard Place is the ever-present insistence of your Godchip urging you to reach the realization of more Good and more Love in the world through your unity through your creations, your words, your behaviors, your mind and your relationships as human on Earth.

Very often, the Rock and the Hard Place are in diametric opposition. Human customs, customs and practices can be in diametric opposition to the Truth of Being. This is when we feel that inner crushing, and even more often it is about issues such as fidelity, loyalty, love, patriotism, human tenants of long standing that have a shred of Truth contained within them, but not all of the Truth. Often this reach is called ‘selfish’ by other humans.

These moments are the opportunity for the expansion of the Soul in a human life. We are freeing ourselves from the limitations of the human mind to achieve a greater Freedom of Expression of the Soul in the physical world. These times are often characterized by deep depression, always by psychic pain as we resist expansion. They are sometimes known as the Dark Night of the Soul.

They are awakening passages. The most difficult ones are always related to someone or something that we appreciate and are afraid of ‘losing’. An example might be when an employee who has worked for a company for 30 years sees that some of the company’s practices are illegal or immoral and has to choose within himself whether he can continue to be a part of this and reach his hard-earned retirement. too long or go bankrupt. whistle about the practices and risk your financial security, let alone your calm, anonymous and secure status.

Whenever someone is confronted with addictive behavior from a loved one, the question arises as to whether one is willing to stay involved in the chaos of someone else’s life or let them loose, thus choosing self over someone else’s drama. person.

A retired veteran sees a war his country is participating in and suddenly feels that this military action is wrong, but he has always defined his actions by the tenant, “My country is right or wrong.” Now, for whatever reason, he questions this and finds himself contemplating new definitions and a deeper understanding of patriot, duty, and loyalty.

The Rock and the Hard Place experience arises when we free ourselves from a belief of the human mind acquired from birth, and replace it with a higher Truth of the Soul. They are difficult passages, because they require us to risk accepting them from our peers, and they usually confront us with the harsh standards with which we have previously judged others.

These passages are important and, if followed to the other side, provide a new insight into life and a higher quality of life experience. We come out happier, relieved and freer because we are truly more than we really are: love and joy.

We have many of these Waterloo moments throughout our lives, and it is very important that we recognize them as significant, important, and critical to a better experience of this human life, because we are allowing more Spirit, Who we really are, to unfold. imbued with our human mind.

But just as it is painful to increase those reps in the gym, any expansion is often painful as well. Of course it doesn’t have to be this way, but with humans we generally resist change for myriad reasons, all of which are additional fears of the human mind: we don’t want to eat crow; we do not want to admit; we do not want to be excluded or excommunicated; we don’t want to be judged, etc.

As a teacher once told me while helping me with one of my own expansions, “When you’re a caterpillar, you have caterpillar friends; but when you become a butterfly, you have butterfly friends. In the meantime, it’s your solo journey of becoming more what you really are.”

Many of us are experiencing Rock and Hard Place moments right now because the world is changing and demanding authentic change from us as opposed to change in the human mind. In the evolution of humanity, this is our next step in awakening as a species and as individuals.

No one can go through these moments for you, but know that you are never alone. Your ever-present Godchip, your Soul, is calling you forward, asking you to let go of anything that restricts the expression of your True Self. On the other side, however, there is more Love, more Truth, more Joy, more Freedom and a more authentic Life experience for you.

Imagine people from all over the world going through these Dark Nights of the Soul.

Now imagine the better world that they can and will create from that new and more Real place of being within them.

Now there is a happy thought.
