The other day Jean Tinder, Crimson Circle’s Content Manager, sent me an email with a draft description of the word “Realization” for our online glossary. We have lots of words that need definition and/or clarity, including Adamus-created words like kaikho, makyo, nhahyu, and shasat, but also regular words like transhumanism, Standard and Souled Being that take on a different meaning when used in Shaumbra-speak.
The description Jean sent me was good, but somehow it wasn’t quite right. How do you define “Realization”? I told her I would edit the definition and send it back to her for the glossary. It’s been confounding me ever since. What the heck is Realization? It’s been going ‘round and ‘round in my head ever since. I still haven’t sent Jean a revised definition for Realization but I’ve had plenty of time to think about the attributes. I hope she doesn’t mind waiting while I share my insights with you.
There’s no two ways about it: You need to allow yourself a sense of humor on this journey. To be serious is to be crushed by the weight of your old human stories. Without humor you’ll be just another wounded warrior on the side of the road to Realization. It starts with being able to laugh at yourself, and then with Adamus and the other spooks, and then at the world. Remember, none of this is real anyway, so why not laugh about it? Laughter is the fart of the soul, releasing the smelly gas of human experience.
The opposite of laughter is dreariness. Boring. Lifeless. Gray. Dull. Analytical. Staid. Serious. Humor and laughter pop you out of your mind and into your Master, who, by the way, has a great sense of humor even if you don’t. It’s the voice that’s been telling you for years to lighten up, take a few risks and watch a good romantic comedy movie.
Why is it that spiritual people are usually portrayed as being somber? Do a Google search on Spiritual People. They’re either kneeling or doing yoga or waving their arms at the full moon. These are not the kind of people I’d want to party with. JP Sears is an exception to the spiritually-serious rule with his “How to Be Ultra Spiritual” videos and book. He laughs down the old stereotypes of being spiritually-correct… and constipated.
As Adamus suggests, take any rough patch in your life and turn it into a comedy story. Even if it’s dark comedy, it changes the perception and therefore the energy. Remember, angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.
There’s a tendency to become very reverent on this journey. But nothing is so holy that you should worship it, other than a first-class seat on long airline flight. The Master doesn’t want the human to revere it, but rather just allow its wisdom. The I Am doesn’t need the adoration, or anything else for that matter. It doesn’t care if you bless it or curse it because the I Am is pure consciousness.
I remember the first time we went to Hawaii. It was back in 2004. We were invited to speak and channel at a conference on the island of Kauai. The room was packed with over 200 people, and at the front was a huge altar, rising over 2.5 meters high and about 6 meters long. It was covered with beautiful flowers, crystals and statues of Buddha, Jesus, Kuan Yin, Mother Mary and about every other spiritual icon you could imagine. There were several big Kahuna’s in the room along with 2 or 3 Grandmothers. They were seated in a special reserved area with large armchairs and a garden of flowers. If you walked past the altar or the VIP area you were supposed to pause and bow. One of the presenters did a long ceremony to worship Kuan Yin that included even more bowing, with some chanting and ohm-ing mixed in. Linda and I were new to all of this so it was quite an experience. With all of the holy ceremony it felt like we were in Catholic church on Hawaii theme night.
But what on earth does any of this have to do with Realization? I walked away from the conference wondering what they were really seeking. It all seemed like a huge distraction. Realization is a very deep and extremely personal experience. It’s not about seeing angels, meditating for days on end, or worshipping anything outside of yourself. Including Adamus. He doesn’t need or want it. In fact, he’ll go out of his way to piss you off if you put him on a pedestal.
And, as a Master, do anything you can to keep people from worshipping you. Unfortunately, most would rather worship something outside themselves than worship what is within. Smoke, drink and curse like a sailor if that’s what’s needed to shake them off.
IN THE MOMENT
Gone are the days when you could plan what comes next in your life. Forget about it. Even if you try it will get blown apart. I have to admit that I still amuse myself with life-planning, but I now embrace enough humor to know that my plans are no better than leaves in a windstorm.
In the linear, mind-based reality we made lots of plans in an attempt to control our human lives, or perhaps to climb to the next level of success. Now that energy is our friend, life is very much in the moment. Energy and potentials come at exactly the right moment, never too much or too little, too early or too late. It’s harrowing at first because it doesn’t appear that there’s a plan or direction. The human panics because it always wants to keep a thumb on the past and future, but after a few dozen in-the-moment experiences you kind of get used to it and stop worrying. Then you realize the outcome is much better than anything you could have planned, because it’s a collaboration between Master and human.
Coming into Realization requires tremendous flexibility in every part of our lives. Everything changes, from our dreams, eating patterns, and energy levels to sleep, people and jobs. Even preferences in music, wardrobe, movies, colors, textures and temperature change. I’ve noticed that my driving patterns have changed in the past year. I used to enjoy driving but many times now I find it brutally annoying and inefficient, kind of like the rest of the planet.
Think for a moment about all of the things you used to like, or liked doing, then feel into what you like now. The list will probably be shorter and simpler. And just when you get used to your new preferences, they will likely change again. Get used to it.
Lots of Shaumbra eyebrows raised when Adamus stated, “The Master is an intolerant son-of-a-bitch.” Most of us thought the Master was chilled out, unflappable and as passive as melba toast. Then we realized that tolerance was just another word for letting people walk all over us. Tolerance was a way of giving everything to everyone else, with nothing left for ourselves. I’ve learned that intolerance means saying “no more” when people and life try to distract me from my inner calling. I’ve also learned that intolerance is more applicable to me than the outside world. I use it on a daily basis to drawn the line when old aspects come harassing, or when my mind tries to do the “right thing” rather than the Master thing. I’ve become intolerant of my own whining, my whippy fears, my huge and plentiful distractions, and my obsessive need for logic. I’m still working on saying “no more” to my need to work hard, but then I wonder if I’d be a lazy Master?
At first it feels uncomfortable to be intolerant. After all, most of us have been trained for lifetimes to be “nice people.” Intolerance seems so impolite. Try using some eloquent intolerance the next time someone is pushing your buttons. Intolerance doesn’t need to be harsh. You can do it with the finesse of a Master to where people will actually smile and nod their heads when you firmly draw the line in the sand. They’ll actually respect you and themselves more when you let the “No” from within come forward rather than the old compromising “maybe” or “let me think about that.” No is not a bad word. It’s actually much clearer than many of our “yeses.”
None of this article has helped me write a brief description of the word Realization, but it gave me a chance to explore some of the not-so-obvious attributes of Realization. Sorry Jean. From the Master in me to the Master in you, you’ll get it just in the right moment. Not too soon, not too late. Smile!
