We humans don’t understand the process we are engaged in. We have an individual life experience, yes, but we are all engaged in a more fundamental process – and that is the processing, through our systems, of energy itself. If we strip ourselves down to our barest usefulness, I think we can say that.
It seems to be true of everything that lives. I recently heard a friend describe a carrot, to a child, as “stored up sunlight.” Living things process energy to keep living. But there is more to it than just that for humans, because we have consciousness and freedom of choice. We can actually choose the energies we process, and we can choose how to change those energies.
What does that mean? In a simple analogy, we all know that opening the windows on a spring day brings a feeling of refreshment into the house. In the same way, we humans can “refresh” the energies we process, and we do that by elevating them.
The reason I bring this up is that it’s related to not taking the world so personally. When we become less personally involved in our worldly experience, we are available to be useful to the planet and the universe – and we do that, in part, by elevating the energies we process.
Let’s consider a common, real world example: a couple having an argument. Somewhere, couples are always arguing. In that “process,” they are using their internal stored energy (likely from their emotions), they are feeding each other energy by the exchange of a heated discussion, and they are also connecting into the (low) energetic frequency produced by other couples fighting, which exists in the atmosphere around us.
This is why we often hear the words: “I don’t know what got into me” when someone confesses to doing something out of character: when our systems process energies, they connect into similar energies in the environment. If what is connected into is very powerful, things can quickly rage out of control, like a wildfire.
That brings us back to our discussion of process. If, when we find ourselves in an argument, we stop taking it so personally, we can actually begin to see how we can provide a service – to ourselves, others, and the planet – by elevating those low energies.
How would we do that? We could start by taking a step back from our emotions and realizing that, at the root of any argument are two humans who are struggling to make it through the day. That can introduce a bit of detachment, but also kindness and caring. Because really, there are no new arguments, only new details. They have all been had before, by others, for 1000s of years.
What can be new is the outcome. So we step back, we consider the humanness of the participants (and their beauty and their common link to us). And then we think (to ourselves, or better, with the person we are arguing with): how can we resolve this in a way that could help others?
That’s an elevation. Because if we understand that what we, and others, do radiates out into the world, and that we all become subject to that radiation when we are at that same frequency, we might have a little more care with what we think and do.
Just as the low energies can be connected into by others, so too can the higher energies. The next time a couple is arguing, and they are searching for a better resolution than the same old go ’round, they might just connect into the frequency of the solution you established in the energetic worlds. It’s amazing to think about, really.
With a little care and kindness, from the comforts of home, we can help ourselves, help others, and add to the higher possibilities for all those who follow. That all becomes possible when we stop feeling: “you did this to me!” and start thinking: “I want to change, for the better, the way this story ends.”
Even Albert Einstein understood this concept. He said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” If we exchange his word “thinking” for “energy,” we have just been discussing the same process.
Perhaps it’s time we humans started studying this other theory of Einstein’s.
