“Dance a dance of Light…and know yourself in it” Part 4

Friday, October 16th, 2015

By allowing we can in a way “sit back and watch” our own growth and, indeed, pace it to the level of our own evolutionary abilities in consciousness. It is said, “God never gives us more than one can handle.” If we replace the word “God” with “higher self” or “spiritual guidance,” then we can say that our own guidance will never give us to do more than we can handle. With this in mind, we learn the last step in the dance of Light that allows both our practical mind and our spiritual mind to co-exist together, moving as harmoniously as possible on our path of awakening. Never will it be the case that our spiritual mind will tell us something that would be good for us to pursue, without it knowing that we are ready for that pursuit. In allowing our practical mind to win when it needs to do so i.e., override the spiritual suggestion, we are learning to create a relationship with our spiritual mind, a relationship of trust that will allow us to more and more rely on our higher spiritual voice.

Indeed, as that trust grows, we soon enough find that we are listening more, hearing more, doing more and allowing more of our spiritual voice to guide us – and as we do so, our practical, day- to-day world, miraculously becomes aligned and in harmony with our spiritual world. Self-knowledge and growth lead the way as we “Dance the Dance of Light…and know (y)ourself in it”

“Dance a dance of Light…and know yourself in it” Part 3

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

So, “organizationally” and “family-wise” we find some comfort, at some level, in having trusted friends, trusted processes, trusted routines that are tried and true, reliable. And the one thing we learn early on in our connection with the voice of our spiritual guidance is that by listening, hearing and doing what that voice guides us to do, there exists a high possibility that it will guide us to places and to do things that take us outside of those familiar comfort zones. So, in essence, to learn steps two and three, hearing and doing in the dance of Light, either as a beginning student or even later on as a Master – is to learn that one can trust the voice of spirit within.

It won’t always seem logical, and it won’t always seem practical, but it will always lead you on a positive expanded path of self-knowledge. And this is what learning the dance of Light is all about. We cannot advance in our spiritual awareness or understanding of ourselves and our lives without lending a “listening ear,” a ”hearing heart,” and a “doing spirit” to follow the guidance within each of us that is here to show us each in our own unique way, to dance our own dance of joy.

Learning these three of the four steps of the dance of Light are most important in learning how to Dance the Dance of Light on your own path to self-awakening and self-knowledge. But the fourth and final step in learning the dance is one that “makes it all happen.” It is the step of “allowing” that brings it all together on our path of becoming the “Master” of the Dance of Light.

By learning this last step of allowing, we learn that the conflict existing between our “doing, practical mind,” and our “spiritual, guidance mind” is able be resolved and mediated as we go from “beginning student” to “Master” of the dance of Light. How that can happen relates to the essence of what the word allowing means in this context. Once we understand that, then we can understand that it is the key to making it possible for us to grow into our “spiritual selves” without great, trauma, pain or turmoil.

This is so because in learning to allow, we grow to understand that the conflict between the “practical” and the “spiritual” voices within us can be regulated in a way that helps us both remain steady and in a place of balance in our practical lives, while at the same time helping us open to our own unique spiritual guidance and growth. The allowing step in the dance gives us the vision and activity of accepting where we are in our present state of consciousness in relationship to doing from our practical minds, while helping us to also HEAR and DO at the same time (to the degree or level of our own unique evolution) from our spiritual mind.

While earlier in my life I had a hard time learning this first steps to “listening all the time,” after awhile I got used to it. As I practiced this first step, it became easier. The second step, hearing was also equally challenging for me. For while I became more aware of the presence of my spiritual voice in my life, I didn’t always want to hear what my voice of spiritual guidance was saying. Why was this? Because in hearing what guidance was saying, it meant that I didn’t only listen to – and perhaps ignore a lot of the time the higher wisdom that was being shared – but also to actually follow through and DO the actions that I was being guided to take.

Why do we find it so hard to learn this step of hearing and doing in the dance of Light, because it brings into focus the massive conflict that exists within each of us individually, and humanity as a whole, relating to TRUSTING THE FORCE or GREAT SPIRIT, or GOD, or whatever you call it. We can see by the fact we all speak different languages on this planet, have different allegiances to families, religions, friends, organizations, neighborhoods, etc., that our differences are so great that we have clustered together with those we can trust, at least to some degree, in order to feel safe.

So, “organizationally” and “family-wise” we find some comfort, at some level, in having trusted friends, trusted processes, trusted routines that are tried and true, reliable. And the one thing we learn early on in our connection with the voice of our spiritual guidance is that by listening, hearing and doing what that voice guides us to do, there exists a high possibility that it will guide us to places and to do things that take us outside of those familiar comfort zones. So, in essence, to learn steps two and three, hearing and doing in the dance of Light, either as a beginning student or even later on as a Master – is to learn that one can trust the voice of spirit within.
