CLAQUATO CEMETERY, WA—As I sat in a cemetery, reveling in the beauty of the temporal nature of our physical lives, I thought about a comment made yesterday by Tomislav. He asked, basically, why things have to get so bad before She presents a better alternative.
How to Manually Open Doors
The fact that we are all familiar with the phrase, “When one door closes, another door opens,” suggests that this is practically a natural law.
From a rational point of view, the explanation for this is really rather simple: We aren’t going to change our lives until things get bad enough. Why? Because there’s simply no reason to. Once things do get bad enough, we close a door (quit a job, end a relationship, …), and we become open and receptive to new opportunities. Before we close that door, we are ensconced in our room and much of our energy—energy that could be used to seek other opportunities—is wasted maintaining the status quo.
How To Magically Open Doors
My saying, the less there is of you, the more there is of Her, functions in a similar manner. When you are ensconced in the personal self (ego), you spend a lot of energy maintaining that self. But when you start living as an Eternal, much of that energy formerly devoted to the ego is released, and TaoGodHer begins to awaken in your life. Since She’s actually a part of you (not a separate being as we often imagine a Divine entity), “lucky coincidences” soon start to occur—and continue to occur again and again and again (as I hope my ongoing synchronistic experiences can attest).
But here’s the key point: In order for TaoGodHer to awaken in your life, you’ve got to be willing to close the door marked, “Personal Self” (shift your attitude from me-me-me-everything-about-my-life-is-important-to-me to I-live-forever-so-what’s-the-big-deal?).
I live forever, so what’s the big deal?
Try it. Just for one day. See if it doesn’t change your life.
