20 Feb – 6 March: Resistance and Freedom

If this is your first MOOD Of the MOMENT Read, please go to the GENERAL PAGE of this Category to find certain expressions explained.

Have you ever thought about what resistance actually is or does in our nervous system? This Cycle of 16 days offers the opportunity to become aware of the relations between resistance and freedom.
The view into the nervous system through the lens of Tibetan Pulsing show it is a certain ability to resist and thus create a bit of friction that enables us every morning to remember “the story of me”, including our name and our to do list. It is actually a specific friction in the brain, needed to remember who you were yesterday. Maybe you’ve noticed the moments before that happens, while waking up … when your senses have already awoken and (you) are hearing the birds … seeing that bit of sunlight dancing through the little gap between the curtains … feeling the body somehow … but nothing’s got a name or a label, yet… happily floating with senses being operational. Then suddenly something in your head says “I’ve gotta be somewhere and do a thing”… THAT’s when that frequency, which builds a resistance within the happy floating-one-with-all energy, creates enough friction in the brain for the you in You to remember itself and set off into your life story.

Nothing wrong, perfect little mechanism. First it sorts out “who are you today and what to do”, then it scans everything coming your way for its usefulness in either serving your personal exploration of life, your personal independent freedom or enabling you rather to resist what makes you dependent or keeps you from the means of fulfilling your wishes. That same frequency will go a long way to reach satisfaction, it may involve addictive usage of inspiring but unhealthy substances and it seduces anyone around into what it wants. It looks for friends, by making sure to meet people with the same opinion. Ultimately, it tries to resist death by creating a sense in us that the psycho-somatic operating station called “I” – which is the you in You – would be needed to run life. That goes for the sense of I operating as what is called Ego. The difference between “just I”-mechanism and Ego is the glue to the story that claims (your) life would exist in separateness. The funny thing is that this is so sad, it moves you towards a dead zone within the psyche, while – remember… waking up into operational senses and a present sense of body and thought … is easy. All that resisting fuels nothing but the final surrendering in the end and into the moment.

Each time we resist – anything – (from a place of seeking perfection for personal advantage) we will also suffer the pain of separation, which comes along with that. While when we align, embrace, integrate and let go of the polarised attitudes of rights and wrongs, the freedom to be what’s called our natural self opens in every moment. We’re still able to say NO, to serve a deeper Yes or just set a boundary. We’re still able to design our very individual travels on the path, but the effort that held us with weight to the ground lifts – and you’re finally able to spread your wings and fly, independent of circumstance. Free like a bird. Obliged to the universal laws like gravity, but free to be one with it all. In accordance with all, it becomes possible to fulfil our wildest dreams of freedom.

HERE THE SPECIAL WHAT TO WATCH DAYS
23 Feb
The shockpoint energy of this day sounds promising: having the power to fulfil your wishes. We sure all want that, don’t we. It is possible by moving in accordance with the whole, moving with life where it moves you. What’s in the way of it is the same mechanism described above: resisting what is and wanting something that isn’t. Now, if that sounds too esoteric and you argue: “who can want the world as it is right now”, let yourself know for experiment sake it is possible just for once, for this moment, to go deeper than personal preferences and likings. You’re not supposed to “like” (whatever is going on or not), you’re supposed to see it all, to embrace it as “THIS ALSO IS PART OF BEING”, to embrace it as part of life. When we’re busy wanting differently, we’re separate – from each other, from life and God, and also from the fulfilment when it actually comes our way. Resisting for the want of other circumstances makes us overlook what’s closest and in front of our nose.
That wish fulfilling power works – when it is aligned to the totality of possibilities called life.
There’s a second chance at the end of the cycle! Yeah! 6 March, same shock point energy in the blessing days!

24 Feb
The following day vibrates a little extra energy for wonderful ideas about how relating and relationship should be. Some of us can really elaborate on this in charming conversations over a cuppa or a drink. And while that might be fun for some time, the real and deep wish to be connected and to meet closely easily gets clad in an amour of intellectual brilliance and relevance with words. And we miss that which makes in fact relating work: the heart. For a natural heart connection we need to be vulnerable, which we often resist for fear of having our so called self-image altered by merging too deeply with one another or by giving up the hierarchies of the working world for equality. This one needs a shift from the head to the heart, then the brilliance and understanding of relating will serve love and compassion.

28 Feb
Today the shockpoint energy may come along with a sad feeling about no-one listening to you and not being able to find out why. This may tell you that you protect too much of yourself from the people you’d like to be your friends, but friends only on your terms. That is when we want them to see us in a certain light and always show only one aspect of ourselves. When you find that you choose your company by pre-sorting their opinions to match with yours, you’ve lost the adventure spirit of spontaneous meetings, surprises and opportunities to widen your mind and heart by engaging in authentic encounters. Maybe you’re trying too hard to be seen and loved for what you do rather than for who you are. In this way, we lose the light that makes us shine and illuminates our uniqueness, which is always loveable exactly the way it is.
What it needs is a little straightening in the spine, maybe a slight turn from the trodden path of beliefs about yourselves towards an openness to become friends. The meeting we seek is not from the mind, it’s from the heart and that has room for different opinions or life styles.

RRResistance, whether conscious or unconscious, eventually leads to a strange kind of competition in the subconscious over what is my main problem, my biggest problem. It’s as though the problems are beginning to fight for centre stage attention in a spotlight run by your frustration. This happens when focus, direction and orientation are lost and the list of complaints about what is missing or wrong is longer than the out breath while you talk about it. … rrrrrrrr… this utterly unsatisfying and rather confusing state comes into being out of a sense of protecting one’s personal freedom by keeping away from anything which looks remotely like dependency. The fear of being “dependent” keeps us away from engaging in things which need focus or commitment, which are mistaken as being the enemies of personal freedom. The funny thing is that these are the very qualities to get us out of the strange mess. Giving it a try is the suggestion here, by no means believe anything. Try it out and see.
