Up The Hill…

Up the Hill

There are a few ways to look at life. At the beginning of life, we are trained to say: this is the hill. I’m going to push something up that hill. I’m going to conquer that hill. That hill is mine for the taking. I am that mountain, and I will own it. Well pretty soon, after you climb and climb and figure out that exact place where you wanted to boulder isn’t so special, then you start to think. Hey, maybe I should let the boulder (aka the flow of my life) go where it needs to go.

You Can’t Fight The Heavens

At that point, when you realize that you can’t beat life at its own game, you let the boulder roll down the hill itself. Run, run and down it goes; all the while you are chasing after it and trying to nudge it from side to side as it rolls. Yes, this is a much better strategy, as you are now trying to move with the flow and just correct it when it gets off course. Although it’s still very exhausting. You still are thinking that you completely control your fate and are micromanaging the here and now instead of letting it be what it wants to be.

If your life wants you to be a warrior, then maybe heaven wanted you to be a warrior. If the heavens send you mentors or opportunities in some direction, then there is usually a reason. You cannot fight against your fate. Your fate will usually win. It will take you somewhere or it will kill you if you let the dark side take you instead. These are the only possible options: a sub-par fate, an amazing fate or death.

Ditch Digging

Now to get to the amazing end of the boulder challenge you will have to do something very crazy. You will have to be so spiritually in tune that you see where the boulder is heading, days, months, weeks ahead and you move in front of it to dig a ditch and prep the path that you would like it to take. Will this guarantee success? Not always, but it is what masters have always tried to do.

Look so far ahead that they know what they need to do before anyone else ever thought that they need to do it. That is where we get the phrase, ahead of their time. It means, they saw the future and responded to the needs that would arise, instead of the needs of today. This is what I would like to do, but if you get stuck in the emotional body, that will keep you in the present at best or the past at worst. This is why emotional development and maturity are so important. They keep us from developing these keen and crucial faculties of spiritual development.

So I say look ahead, there is a ditch to dig, and a few potholes to fill up…

Happy shoveling and much love A
