What do you remember? More specifically, how do you choose, daily, what is most present, persistent and generative in your active memory? What do you think about the most, revisit the most, ruminate upon the most, and thus live out the most?
The more you move into and exist from within the energies of surrender, acceptance, appreciation and gratitude, the less those clingy, sticky, life-sucking energies can stay with you, attach to you, and have any sort of influence over you. You become slippery and unattainable to those harsh, vampiric, negative, spiny urchins of malevolence and you regain your creative resources.
It’s not always easy being a human in this world. It’s always changing, and there is a lot of damage (psychic, physical, karmic, spiritual), with generations of unbalanced energies to process and recapitulate. All this complexity, unfortunately, expresses itself in how humans treat themselves, other humans, and the earth—thus creating cycles of trauma.
We’ve all peed in the pool. We’ve all gotten home to realize that no matter how much we scrubbed and rinsed, we still reek of chlorine. That’s how it goes in a society, too. We’re products of our environments, for the most part, regardless of how often we profess to be otherwise. It’s not a conscious thing. It’s an energy thing; a field that permeates the observed and the directly experienced.
Through living here in this physicality, we learn and experience that our bodies are transmutation mechanisms, able to process and manifest organically what we create energetically, and emotionally. Thus, a “common cold” seems to be one of our body’s methods of purging built up energies we haven’t otherwise dispelled or processed. One could call it a Clearing Out of Low-level Dross (or Dysfunction).
