Don't Let the Hard Times Get You Down Develop Your Fortune Energies Instead!
We sometimes get emails from energy awareness practitioners that reflect the common belief that, if they are experiencing a problem, they must be doing something wrong. Or, if they're feeling great and life is peachy, they are obviously doing something right. Fortunately – or unfortunately, as the case may be – it just ain't so. How you're feeling from one day to the next doesn't really tell you anything about the progress of your energy awareness development, or how well you're doing your practices.
Sincere practitioners, who are making good progress, go through periods of feeling rotten. While those who are less serious about the development, if any, of their awareness may, if they're "lucky", be having a great time.
Everyone experiences karmas – the challenges that arise from foreign energies affecting our health, wealth, relationships or any other area of our life. But one person's karmas may seem relatively light, whereas someone else's will be much heavier.
However, neither of these states tells you anything about your spiritual development or whether or not your practice is succeeding in any particular way.
Living with Intent
Everyone would like a relatively carefree life, unburdened by the downs and always on the up. And, of course, many people dedicate themselves to experiencing as much pleasure as they can in the time available to them. But living with intent – which is the bedrock of cultivating a stable, whole body, higher awareness – slowly breeds a different relationship with one's life.
Imagine your life as a line on a graph that goes up when life is easy and down when times are hard. Where is your intent? In fact, it isn't anywhere on that line. It's another line altogether – one that rises perpendicularly from the ebb and flow of your life. The more you live with intent, the less the ups and downs of your life mean anything to you at all. You might, from an observer's point of view, be living a wonderful life – or going through one or another form of hell.
But, from your point of view – and depending on the strength of your intent – your life, whether it's easy or hard, is only ever perfect. Intent is an energy that is cultivated in the weaver – the subtle organ in your upper abdomen that generates all your fortunes and misfortunes. The nature of intent is that it transforms any experience you are having – be it "fortunate" or "unfortunate" in itself – into energy awareness, higher and higher throughout your being.
So, the more you live with intent the more all experiences become equal because they are all perfect means, generated by your own spirit, for you to develop the awareness you most need at that time. We call this "living in the ascending moment" because intent, the vehicle of awareness, transforms all karmas – light or heavy – into higher and higher awareness. It literally rises up through your body and, eventually, above and beyond your crown. And the higher your awareness rises, the more you are liberated from depending on your circumstances in order to feel okay.
Of course, higher awareness notwithstanding, everyday life can sometimes be exhausting and depressing, so the Rainbow of Happiness looks at ways of tipping the balance of your future away from your misfortunes and more towards your fortunes – more wisdom, inner strength, happiness and success – as vehicles for developing higher awareness. Seeking an easier life for its own sake is a bit like paddling at the shallow end of the pool – the water feels good but you never really get anywhere... The Rainbow of Happiness is about progressing towards a lighter way of being whilst transforming the karmas that arise in your life into higher energy fortunes, essential creativity and personal power.
The Attitude of Gratitude
One of the "secrets" to living with more intent is to develop an "attitude of gratitude" – to thank the spirit of your life for every arising challenge, consciously choosing to see each karma as an opportunity to grow. Since this practice is simply an acknowledgement of what is, in fact, the case, when it's adhered to from day to day it steadily strengthens your intent. And the stronger your intent becomes in each area of your life, the more it changes that area of your life for the better – sometimes in surprising or unexpected ways.
Like all real awareness-cultivating practices, it isn't always easy to be sincerely thankful when the bank turns down your loan application, you bang your head on a cupboard door and the dog runs away with the cat, but every such trying experience is always a gift from the spirit within. And through truly being grateful for every karma, you will increasingly discover, in the moment, that there really is an illuminating lining to every cloud – no matter how much it may seem to be trying to get you down...
