Nothing bad can happen to you without your permission!
But, i don’t give permission for my problems to manifest.
Actually, you think you only give permission for the good things that happen to you, but, that is because you don’t really know who you have allowed to do your thinking.
The thinker (the one you think you are) believes it is “in” your body. But by persisting with this belief, we have inadvertently handed over our “consciousness” to a limited problematic “self”.
Don’t believe Me?
Our definition of “conscious” is to be “aware of one’s own existence, sensations, thoughts, surroundings, etc.” (dictionary.com) This would suggest that our body must be awake for us to be “conscious”. That makes us dependent on our body for our “consciousness”. But, during sleep, our bladder holds, our body rolls over a few times, our stomach digests, our heart pumps, and our lungs breathe. Obviously, there is “something” else that is Awake or Conscious, functioning our body to our benefit while we sleep. But, by our own definition, it can’t be our “conscious” self.
Despite our unconsciousness, we trust this “something” to provide rest and rejuvenation and to wake us (and our body) up in the morning. Why do we trust it? Because, deep down, We Intuitively Know that this “something” is Our Consciousness in its fullness. It is not an alien Life-force or Universal energy that our intellect would like us to believe exists, or, some outside “God” of religion. Our Body functions while we sleep because it is being Activated by the same Consciousness that functions our Body while we are awake. That Consciousness Is Us, You and Me; Infinite, Immortal and Eternal. Can Infinite Consciousness be confined to a body that sleeps?
In fact, if the intellect didn’t “wake up” and interrupt proceedings, We, Our Consciousness, would Provide everything we “need” for our existence, like It does for every other creature in the Universe. Do birds worry about their health; are there any homeless fish; do bees fight over a flower; are there poor elephants? Yes, Our Consciousness is the same Consciousness that Provides, Maintains and Sustains the Universe.
Then, why is it that we humans are the only ones that suffer with a vast number of problems?
We suffer because we identify with the intellect that believes it is “in” a body, and, therefore, we think the only way to be “conscious” is to be not-sleeping.
The Truth Is that Consciousness is All that We can be Conscious of, and, that must be Infinite. Therefore, there is nothing outside Our Consciousness. That means, even though we seem to be “in” a body separate from everything we need for our existence; food, clothing, a home, money, work, friends, health, peace, happiness, etc, all those things, (just like the rest we expect when we sleep), are really “within” Our Consciousness.
When we lack Consciousness of this Truth, that’s when we open ourselves to problems.
Well, when you are ignorant that you are Infinite Consciousness, you, the thinker, doesn’t Trust this Source to Provide for all your “needs”. Instead, the “conscious” you interrupts the Intuition and takes over your mind with its doubts and fears about its life-in-a-body. As a result, you start to depend on this “separate” body for your existence.
- When your body needs food, you are hungry,
- When your body needs rest, you are tired,
- When your body loses the roof over its head, you are homeless,
- When your body contracts a disease, you get sick,
- When your body has an accident, you are injured,
- When your body ages, you get old,
- When your body fades away, you die
But, you are not “in” your body. It is the other way around. Your Body is “within” You, Your Consciousness.
And, if you Know that Your Body is the expression of Your Infinite Consciousness, You would also Know that nothing could happen to Your Body without You. Can Infinite Consciousness be hungry, tired, homeless, sick, unhappy, lonely, old and dead?
If not, where does that leave the “conscious” self-in-a-body and its problems? Nowhere! They were only a thought conjured up by the thinker pretending to be you. Problems cannot manifest with Consciousness.
