Yesterday’s post demonstrates one of the reasons I continue to blog, and a big reason I’m writing the book: To give readers a “peek behind the curtain” of what it’s like to live with Cosmic Consciousness (the duplex personality, She/We/I, union/communion with the Divine, …).
Yesterday’s post—while still a good example of I LOVE in action—was focused on my non-black-and-white attitude toward hunters. What I didn’t get into was the inner and outer experience of She/We/I in action.
Just like everyone has bodily desires and mental desires (I of course have these too), at this I LOVE, separate-but-one with the Divine (She/We/I) level, I also have individual and Divine desires. (New readers: Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t some messiah complex—I don’t know what the hell TaoGodHer thinks or knows—but I do know what is important to Her… Her value system has become (largely) my own).
So the scene went like this:
Two hunters come wandering into my camp angry that I had blocked off what they saw was a legitimate parking space in front of my campsite.
I, reacting to their anger and feeling a bit guilty, disagreed with them.
They wander down the stream to kill some ducks.
I ponder who is wrong here and decide that I am since I was reacting to both the hunters’ attitudes and to my own desire for privacy from the little-me’s viewpoint—reactions generated by the Mortal level’s instincts (“Defense! Defense!”) and the Ego level’s social conditioning (“Respect my boundaries”).
But to She/We/I (I LOVE), while the lower levels shout louder, the higher levels are far more important, and so I removed the rope and sign blocking off my camp (even though I knew it would open it up to more hunters).
When the two hunters returned, they were expecting an escalation to our disagreement, but after explaining my actions and reasons (I took the sign down because I realized that I was wrong and the forest is for all of us to enjoy), they both visibly relaxed, stepped up, apologized for their aggressive attitude, introduced themselves and shook my hand.
The older of the two then said to me, “I’m surprise at how well you’ve dealt with this. I’ve never experienced that before.” His attitude wasn’t, “Ah, you wuss,” but one of absolute and profound respect—and (and I’m humbled and grateful for this) it deeply affected me.
There’s a cynical but oddly accurate saying that when a fair deal is struck, all parties leave unhappy.
I understand that saying, but if we act from our highest level of conscious development—if we listen to the whispers of these higher levels and not the shouts of the lower ones—a fair deal can not only leave all parties satisfied, but in awe.
