ALIGNMENT IN SELF
Generator of inner & outer worlds
There are many lenses to look through when it comes to your alignment. Some people view alignment as an external phenomenon, meaning when things are lined up in either their body or life they feel innerly aligned. Others view alignment as an internal compass, a place that they come from, their center from which everything external responds. Whether you view your alignment as external or internal doesn’t truly matter as long as you recognize that either way you are the source of your alignment. Self (you) generates both the inner and outer worlds that you experience and they are mere reflections of each other. One visible in form through the senses and the other directly experienced or known without form or senses.
To recognize yourself as the generator of your inner and outer worlds places you in the prime position of self-responsibility. Responsibility to and for your own alignment. You might wonder what is self and how do I align to it? Self is you. It is simply the knowing and direct experience that you exists. That you are. That you be. It is so obvious and yet so overlooked. That you be, is that you are, is that you exists, is what you are. That you are is what you are. This knowing is pivotal because everything arises out of it. All experience is generated from the source of being. From impulse or desire to know itself beingness shapes itself and this is what we call form. The impulse or desire is important. You could call that desire or impulse, that with which you align with in order to share a unique expression or flavor of being that you’ve taken on the responsibility to express.
The next question you may have is how to know what that desire or impulse is, which is unique for you. Said another way what unique flavor did you agree, volunteer and eagerly want to share with the rest of creation? People often struggle over this, thinking that it has something to do with what they do. They try to find their purpose rather than be their purpose. They put their purpose “out there” rather than recognizing that they are their purpose. I’m here to tell you that your purpose, your desire for being here now, has absolutely nothing to do with what you do. The doing is simply an emanation of the being and of the desire to share an aspect of the creator through your being.
DISCOVERING THE IMPULSE
Discovering the desire or impulse that created your current configuration, location and experience is way easier than you think. The easiest way to discover it is to feel what lights you up the most. You can explore this by reflecting on a peak experience that you may have had, or simply just noticing what you enjoy feeling the most. It may also help to see what you enjoy seeing others experience. This exploration gives you the knowingness of what you are here to express and also help others experience through your being.
When we try to do our purpose, no matter how well intentioned we are, we are not in our alignment. Doing, that is disconnected from the flavor of beingness that we are, is just hard work. While we might be accomplishing stuff it is never truly fulfilling. It is more fulfilling to do nothing and be ourselves, than it is to accomplish and create a bunch of stuff while being outside of our alignment. When you prioritize your alignment with the desire that created you than you can’t help not create that world. The world of your alignment is what is. Regardless of what you do or don’t do, that world gets generated through and by you being what you are. This is not to say that you won’t also create cool stuff, but its really only truly epic and serving to all if it comes from you being you.
It only seems complex to be aligned with you because people have made it complex with all their thinking, reasoning, and analyzing. When you instead just allow the feeling state of what you desire most to overtake your entire existence (i.e. become you) you realize just how easy it really is. Then the only “demons” (also known as stories and attachments) you face are the ones inside your own thinking mind that tell you that you should feel or be different than you are. The work is for you to turn everything you experience into the flavor of your unique expression of the creator that you be.
Sometimes we are pretty insistence that something we experience is outside of our own alignment. This can be tricky as we are constantly generating experience from our alignment. However due to our insistence that the experience we are having is outside of our alignment we forget our alignment. When this happens we feel victim to circumstance and become what we’ve been conditioned to think about the thing or experience rather than be what we are. We thus fall out of service, out of alignment and into trying to get through it, which comes with survival, scarcity, and wrongness mode. When we be our alignment rather than what we’ve been told to believe about something than we only know abundance, we only know ourselves. There is nothing that feels safer, more perfect and more right than that. In this way nothing pulls you out of your self and your beliefs and stories lose their grip on you. Again none of this hard. Its does take inner reflection and awareness of self and patterns. It does take self-investigation, self-responsibility and self-commitment to be who you are no matter what appears to your senses. It takes creating new habits and it takes some time in this relative world in order live fully as you are. But none of this is impossible and the path leads to only more and more life being itself, knowing itself and serving all of creation.
