Something Divine in the Essence of Being Human
Imprisoned in Humbleness
Imagine that you possess a luxurious skyscraper with hundreds of rooms, some equipped with outlandish technology, and some with incredibly pampering ambient - but you chose to live in a small maintenance room at its basement.
Every day you pass by the elevator wondering a little what's up there in all those upper floors, but being well habituated in your little room, you never get tempted to explore. Anyway, you reason, you would probably be lost in all those unfamiliar rooms, and merely thinking about that already makes you nostalgic about your little place.
This metaphor could describe our reluctance to change our low gear model of functioning, with low frequencies being its main feature. Why do we refuse to take that elevator? It's like someone brings us a full briefcase of hundred dollar bills, and then looking at the size of our wallet we say: "Too bad, it wouldn't fit in here." It doesn't occur to us that by elevating ourselves to some higher frequencies we would change so much that we would feel at home in the new environment.
Yes, we might miss those good guys like Joe the lawn mowing man, and Fred, the bus driver, and even Lucy who comes every Monday to pick up empty bottles and cans. But what about all those happy, and smart, and inspiring folks that we might meet in our new reality? Oh, well, we say, we are not sure if we would be ready for all that happiness and smartness, and we are too busy to inspire ourselves for anything new.
Thinking about all that now I can't help but remember that fellow from Herman Hesse's classic "Stepenwolf", who inherited a botanical garden, and then destroyed all plants - leaving only what was edible.
Mini-Gods in Mini-Galaxies
Now, whether we are ready to see it that way or not, but each of us is a mini-galaxy made of some fifty trillion cells, which are made of even more molecules, which are made of an astonishing, astronomical number of atoms. Then atoms are by their mass so tiny that the distance between them is relatively like the distance from the earth to the moon, considering their masses.
When you further split those atoms, you get subatomic particles of a questionable mass flickering in and out of existence, and being more of mere information than anything material. Which means that at a quantum level of ourselves, which is equally real as this body we see in the mirror, we are mostly space filled with energies of certain frequencies plus intelligence orchestrating life in us as we know it.
Everything is energy and intelligence. Just like trees "know" when to shed their leaves; and flowers know how to make themselves attractive to visiting insects which will spread their pollen; and chameleon or some marine fishes know how to blend their color with their surroundings to make themselves "invisible" to predators - so everything else alive is sharing that universal intelligence of that quantum realm. If plants and animals are tuned into it, we can't even start imagining how we are, with our highly developed brains.
Yes, we are mini-gods with our personalized part of universal intelligence ruling within our own galaxies, our own personal space. That same god-like creative intelligence - just reduced to very low frequencies by our animalistic part of the nature whose frequencies are producing interference, like two radio stations mixing, and one with the crazy program outlouding the one with a smart one. Isn't that a pity?
Ignorance Playing Different Instruments
In our ignorance we don't see how everything living and non-living plays its part in the universal scheme of creation. With our mechanistic and reductionist views we even see our body as a biological machine fixable by chemicals - our heart just as a "pump", our liver and kidneys as "filters", and our brain as the "computer".
And those others of us go to another extreme, seeing a duality between the universal intelligence and us - while ourselves being merely branched-out parts of it - so they talk about a god being separate entity from us, someone to fear, to appease, to pray to.
Why would a god pray to himself? - we are one, just creating on a different realm, with a different frequency of consciousness. Even our liver vibrates with a different frequency than our stomach - although they belong to the same body.
Someone said it so right: "It's not what we don't know that gets us in trouble nearly as much as what we think that we know - but we don't." The whole paradigm of our culture market is reducing us to some insignificant particles of society limited to our fragile bodies that only medicine can keep alive and well, and only politicians can keep in order, and only religion can keep moral.
There is no place for our dignity of creators and self-healers in that artificially composed picture benefitting a handful of human specimens. We are all duped into trusting those of enough authority to make lies look like truths.
And yet it's not like that with all of us. There is a wave of the highly awaken folks scattered around this beautiful planet of ours who are silently growing by number and spreading their teaching while inspiring others to tear the cobweb of historical brainwashing from their spirituality.
Let's face it, folks, our much glorified forefathers were even more duped and ignorant than we are, and like someone said it: "History can only teach us how it never taught us anything".
With Frequencies of Happy Kids
Raising our frequency is nothing hard or outlandishly complex. On the contrary, as every master of meditation may tell us, "in order to be effective, meditation has to stay simple". Indeed, we can't meditate with frequencies of a non-meditation which are the ones of complicating our lives and making us sick and unhappy. Even Einstein said: "You can't solve a problem with the same frame of mind which created it".
Since our emotional energy plays the main role in our frequencies, we have to bring it to the stage where it was before we started complicating life and consequently messing up our frequencies. In other words, we have to reenact our childhood happiness in ourselves while keeping the wisdom of grownups to guide it.
Adulthood, after all, doesn't really seem to be like an advantage, as far as our emotionality is concerned. Have you ever seen a happy kid who was that way "because he was practicing some of those dozens of self-improvement modalities"? When properly guided, kids are happy, energetic, creative, imaginative, curious, loving, humorous, exploring - something that we lose in the process of becoming adults.
Indeed, if we didn't screw them up with our inhibitory measures, forcing them to be "one of us", most of them would become avatars, Mozarts, geniuses, healers, and powerhouses of creation. There is an enormous potential in each one of us, and raising our frequencies is not really about "becoming something more" but dropping as useless much of what we are."
By doing that, we could reclaim our status under the sun - the status of divine beings. For that's what we truly are, when we stop being who we are not. Indeed, we should stop raising our envious eyes towards some imaginary angels up there, and start seeing them in the mirror.
