Transparency Is Coming. Soon.
Sometimes the inspiration for the post comes a couple of hours before I’m sitting down to write it. And that’s what happened today, so this one may be a little rough around the edges, as now I am up against my 7:01 PM deadline to post my Tuesday evening article.
I began to notice something lately, and that is that I seem to be experiencing an even more refined ability to feel, in the words of that famous line from Star Wars, when ‘there is a disturbance in the Force.’
I have long become accustomed to remaining focused on the actual words and actions of the people I’m relating with so that I may respond appropriately to them as opposed to reacting to the actual energy coming off of them sometimes when what I see and what I feel coming at me do not match.
This skill was brought to the forefront when, as a single mother of a child with a major medical problem I was required to be on alert 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, even when I was asleep I had to be paying attention, because I never knew when it would be time to get up and rush my child to the emergency room. And frankly, that happened quite often.
She has grown now, and seems to have outgrown the worst of the problem.And I have been left with really sensitive radar, a heightened ability that is like empathy, but not really. I’d say it was more an ability to sense what’s really going on behind the facade we all put up for other people to interact with.
And for the most part, I have learned that I need to just keep this other level of awareness to myself. But sometimes, I just can’t.
I had an exchange of ideas about energy between myself and a fellow writer one time. I could feel a bit of irritation coming off the very words that were being written to me, and I found that quite unusual. I didn’t know quite how to tell this person that I could actually feel their emotions (which weren’t lined up with their words) without them thinking that maybe I was a little wacko, so I just let it drop.
My daughter can still get annoyed when I call her out of the blue to ask how she’s doing. When I make that particular call, she knows as well as I do that I’ve been picking up on something that is not right in her world.
I am beginning to suspect that I am not the only one that is experiencing this increased ability to see through the mirror, through the looking-glass, to the truth. It has been said that there would come a time when we would no longer be able to hide from each other.
To all of you who come here, a sincere question: have any of you experienced what I am describing here? Where you KNOW you know what the other person is feeling about something, and that is it NOT what they are saying? What do you do when you find yourself in that situation?
There are certain rules of social etiquette that, although they have been mostly pushed to the side and ignored, are generally still observed. If we intend collectively to move to a place of awareness, then being in integrity with what we perceive is going to be imperative. How can we continue to pretend with each other? Does that not cause more harm to, than do good for, our relationships with each other?
It is my sense that the time for transparency is coming. Sooner than perhaps we are ready for, but it is coming nonetheless. Surely in the higher dimensions the masks we wear here are nonexistent. Surely there is nothing that can be hidden from the Light of understanding there. And ‘there’ is where we are all headed. ‘There’ will be here soon.
See the good in people and help them. ~ Ghandhi
