Overcoming Self-Pity, (self created) Depression and Guilt
This Cycle is TREE HUGGING TIME! This is the prime time to listen to the wind, slow down inside and listen to the response when you hug a tree and really meet it. There’s something in the experience, which can give us a great sense of deep rooted security no matter what goes on. When you listen carefully inside, you’ll get in touch with the fact that this isn’t “the tree’s security” – it’s yours and the tree’s… you are treeing, too. It reveals when slowing down to the “speed” of TREEING …
In slowing down more beauty reveals. Aren’t they beautiful, the little snails. Have you ever watched them making love? It’s an amazingly elegant and ever so slow dance, extremely sensitive. These fellows carry their house with them – now, that’s a reassuring idea, but … is it safe? If you remember the sound of these mobile homes cracking when a bigger animal – like a human – accidentally steps on them … so fragile … no safety in that way at all.
Since we are fragile a breed as well, we instinctively and naturally strive for secure and safe environments. Especially when it comes to housing and homes. The sense for that gets passed on and taught to us by Mother. Every mother of every life form on this planet has the job of teaching how to conform with the environment, in order to be safe. For us humans it includes emotional and psychological safety. Since there is no guarantee for any of it – not even for the best of concepts and ideas about it! – the Felt need for it can produce some very strange concepts about how to behave in order to be liked and not get hurt or about who (not) to be with.
There’s an inner knowing in us that real creativity can only flower in security – which is why the writer gets a prepaid advance to write the book and patrons or donors support artists so they can paint or compose while not having an income. The sense for security and safety in our immediate environment roots in the need to support our growth and relaxation for creativity to flower.
The problem is that we get attached and begin to behold the outer form that once secured our living as being the real reason for our comfort, while the authentic spot inside gets overlooked. What’s that? That is actually our ability to adapt, to conform, to reform, to play in all sorts of circumstances, to be more like water than like stone, to move with the flow. The safe and secure way to go is with the unpredictable ever changing flow of life, whatever it brings.
Overcoming fear of change will liberate you from clinging to the status quo, to the known and free you up to grow right into the sky while keeping roots in the earth, wherever you are. It’s the clinging, which produces depression or even self-destruct, not the circumstance.
On this planet, in this world right now fundamental change and radical new ways of living and reorganising our human, animal and plant life are calling us to risk the jump into the unknown. We need to try new ways, to let go of clinging to status, matter or concepts of the past. This cycle is a good time to practice. Especially on the Shock Point Days it makes what it is that keeps us from moving with the flow more visible, wherever it leads.
Let’s look at WHAT TO WATCH (the ‘Shock Points’)
9 March (s un)
Getting comfy, feeling snug as a bug in a rug and enjoying one’s home. It’s a good day for that. Whatever it is that makes you feel safe and secure, enjoy where and how your system restores its energy and you can become creative. When we’ve done our homework on the Rights ‘n Wrongs, it becomes a lot easier to be truly at home in our very individual ways, which may be different from the common way around us. That inner stability, which ‘home’ gives us, can be achieved in different ways by different people.
Some of us are travelers and perfectly happy to anchor the ‘home sense’ in various places or into an attic with the pre-loved collection of our stuff in it. Some people travel with their homes. Whichever way, we do need that sense of ‘safe and secure place now’. That is possible and the emphasis here is ‘now’.
We can contribute to feeling safe, help create it according to our needs. Just one thing to understand, this will not be the address, a certain place, a certain way. Too much attachment to that often creates difficulty. When ‘home’ gets totally associated with outer circumstance, we will experience some very disturbing disruption within, when these circumstances suddenly change. So, while you have the circumstances you like, take a look within and learn what it is that actually makes you feel at home, what let’s you know inside that you feel safe and sound? It is a response from within.
In an ever changing and obviously very unstable world, it helps to cherish access to the inner home feelings. Listening inside is what connects you to it. I do not usually mention organs in this blog, but in this case: make friends with your liver. She’s the one who resonates with all of this. (In case you’re unsure, the liver is on the right side of the body under and below the rib cage, a pretty big organ. Put your hand there, you can’t miss it.) I’m not suggesting spiritual or therapeutic solutions for practical problems or issues with ‘homes or housing’. I do not mean to sing “home is where the heart is” while not having a place to sleep. That won’t help matters. The comfy loved outer home helps you to discover your resonance zone within for feeling at home. Once you do feel at home from within yourself, that straightens your posture, you’ll walk upright and strong through thick ‘n thin and all the changes, including the most unfortunate surprises. Good Luck.

Admittedly, this cycle does have a collection of stuff we all do and know, but rather prefer to hide and mostly from ourselves for fear of being too embarrassed. You know what!? – the times are over where we could afford such indulgent privileges. Let’s get on with the cleaning up, after all it’s about overcoming the shadow creators in our life, turning towards that which is full of light already and independent of circumstance.
That was the prep talk!
Now let’s take a look and say your last Good Byes to the fear of looking inside, of becoming silent, combined with ideas that this will put you out of control (IT WILL BUT THERE IS NO ACTUAL DANGER).
All that does or has done for you so far, is crippling you into an invented helplessness, into a lie, which you believe before anyone else does. And what does that serve? … Being inferior and forcing others to play the superior for you. Oops, ouch, know that one?! Yeah … mmmm … doing it ?… no, no of course not YOU, but you sure know people who do … well … you can secretly get finished with it, but make sure that’s what you want.
All it needs is a simple radical 100% STOP – not the dropping dead kind, not the freeze … the awake, aware, available kind of STOP. Stop that game and look inside … listen within and into the void …
Thank you! You are so incredibly beautiful! Namaste!
14 March (s dc)
Pffffft …. uuuuffff…. in case you feel like the last bit of breath just left you and you’re trapped in a body that cannot move anymore – but you’re not actually in the dying process – well, you’re right in tune with today’s energy. And, there’s something in it to see, to learn.
In this case, it’s a psychological state, which only one person is responsible for: you. That may be uncomfortable news, but the good part is that it means you can get out of it. You may feel like you are flat on the ground, pressed down by ‘evil forces outside of you’ and helpless.
Check on the self-pity levels: those are the glue that keeps the suffering in place.
Check on your health supporting life-style …?! …! Ah! … maybe there have been substances or lesser quality intakes, which challenge the cleansing organs of your body too much and thus push the brain towards dark gloomy ideas? That can be helped! Crawl towards the kitchen and start with a fresh Green or Fruit Smoothy!
Another pattern, a little more tricky, likes to come alongside self-pity: guilt. Now, if there is an issue, if you really derailed and caused hurt, you’ll know it. Get up or at least switch on that smart phone, apologise and put more awareness to the arena of your derailment from now on. That’s called taking responsibility.
When you’ve not done anything, feeling guilty doesn’t make any sense at all, unless … it’s your preferred little comfort zone? … really? …Feeling guilty for the suffering of the world is one of the Ego’s most loved spots, but utterly useless and unhealthy.
However much we may have liked in the past to enroll in that – it’s time to sort that nonsense with some wisdom of discernment. Rejecting guilt is a good start. There’s either no need for it, ’cause there’s no issue or, if there is an issue, you can take responsibility.
In both cases, that horrible energy which traps you into the body feeling immobile loosens up. Your spine can reach up again and you reach out from depression into contact and communication. Then, guess what, there are others for whom life is sometimes not easy. They, like you, love to share and help each other.
17 March (w mi)
brings an invitation which needs courage: overcoming “Right & Wrongs”. We’re all full of it, aren’t we. We’ve all been told so many “right & wrongs” that some or maybe most of that categorising stuff has become our normal. Whether it roots in moral, social or religious context, whether it comes along looking ‘legitimate’ or ‘justified’ – and it often is – it creates a trap too easy to step into: total identification with righteousness. It becomes a concept which we get stuck in, feeling convinced by our own explanations of how life should be. Since this is polarised, it creates separation. And whether your pick of “right or wrong” is useful, ethical or just – when it comes from an identified mind as a concept, it will always leave you unsatisfied, somewhat stuck and feeling disconnected.
Usually all the Right n Wrong rules are supposedly serving to uphold order, to keep us safe and secure. Many of those rules may actually work. It’s not that the ideas are wrong 🙂 – it’s how we PRE-install them in a way that stops our natural energy from flowing.
When you manage to stay available to the moment, when you allow life to take you on its shoulders rather than the other way round – you’ll find that you’re perfectly capable of responding to what’s in front of you. You don’t need a catalogue of “right-doings” installed as a control tool. When you make a mistake, life will show that to you and you’ll see it sooner or later; when you respond in synchronicity with God’s plan, you’ll feel that, too.
In this moment, while writing, I hear the outcry of young parents’ voices in my inner ear – YES! the kids need protection and guidance. Sure thing. That rather concerns practical matters. What they don’t need is conceptual moral, ethical, spiritual theories on how to be. They have had their own “how” since they were born. They will learn to form that within the world of forms around them. The job of Grown Ups is to protect them from harm, but not to create imaginary harms in our minds and limit them from exploring by crushing their energy into “rights & wrongs” about stuff they haven’t even met yet.
Just imagine … there’s no heaven … above us only sky … living life in peace as who we are, how we are. It’s possible and we can! That’s as secure an order as it gets.
