I just don't have any control over what happens anymore. I don't even know who I am anymore.
- No need to know! That need is the trouble. There is no need to know. One should just move wherever life takes one. Trust life! This is mind interfering and trying to control; to manage and to manipulate. This is ego need.
You have come to understand a very basic thing. Now, don't forget it. Everything happens, and nobody has any power. The whole power-trip is an illusion. Nobody has any power. Everything is happening on its own. At the most you can cooperate or fight. If you fight, then too it will happen, but you will miss the bliss of it. If you cooperate, then too it will happen -- but not because of your cooperation; it was going to happen anyway. You will feel blissful, ecstatic. So cooperate with life, don't create any conflict, and then everything falls in line; everything settles by itself.
So it is just that this idea is wrong, mm? -- that you need to have some power. The second idea is also part of it -- that you need to know. Knowledge is always a search for power. Knowledge is nothing but an enquiry to become more powerful. That's why science has become so important, because we start feeling powerful, and feeling that we have conquered nature. Nothing has been conquered, nothing can ever be conquered. Science only discovers where nature is moving, and then starts cooperating with it -- then things start happening. It is not powerful.
For example, oxygen and hydrogen combined together create water. It has always been so, whether we know it or not. When nobody knew about it, then too it was happening. Science discovered that this is how water is made, so now if you follow the rule, you can make water. The water is making itself! You simply cooperate. It is not a conquering, but a deep cooperation.
And the same is true for religion. Science discovers how to cooperate with nature, and religion discovers how to cooperate with God -- the ultimate nature. But in both ways, the more you know, the more you understand that knowledge is not needed.
Drop that trip, and just enjoy whatsoever you are and whatsoever is happening.
So, according to OSHO, the Gulf of Mexico Disaster is Mother Earth's way of tapping Humanity on the shoulder to get Our Attention regarding Control/Power/EGO issues. That the only way to Cooperate with "Life" and Learn Our Lessons on this Wonderful Planet, is to Change Our Thinking thus Change Our Lives/Habits/Lifestyles to HONOR Our Life Supporting Environment rather than Destroying It with Our GREED. Hmmmm. . . .I LIKE IT! That's what we teach in elementary school - Cooperation vs Control/Bullying! YES! And, after all, it is the Collective Consciousness in Mass (100th Monkey Effect) that will cause the Shifting into a Better Way of Life - and Mother Earth's Rejuvenation. We can only Be Responsible for One of that Collective, OURSELVES. So, the Shift Begins with EACH ONE of US. Do you think Humanity will "wake-up?" Thank YOU, Sonja for this Joyfully Enlightening and Profoundly Important Post! Many Blessings to YOU! With Infinite Love & Light, CrystaLin Joy
Yeah - we are responsible for ONE - and the Shift begins with each of us :-)
The more we are to really take responsibility, the easier the Shift will be - but SHIFT we WILL!
Let us work together, experiment together, have fun and joy together to make transition time as easy as possible! No fear will help in this - only TRUST! Letting go of control and TRUST - enjoying the ride, LOL!
Thank you, CrystaLin Joy, for your wise words in this beautiful comment!
