Last night was the first night of the Malahide Epic Life group.
We had a long chat about how the belief in things / labels like good, bad, positive, negative, anxiety, confidence, enlightenment and chair, don’t actually exist. They are just words and believing that they do exist, because other people use them, is actually what causes our problems.
If you imagine a chair in front of you and I ask you what is it really? you would say wood, or metal, or some thing to that effect. If you wanted to be really smart, you would say molecules and atoms, ultimately, energy.
So what is it really? I see it in two parts, it is a form, that we call chair and that word chair has a story attached to it, “a chair is something to sit on” so we operate out of the story. But what is it really? actually I don’t know and that is the two parts, 1 is a word, with a story and 2 is actually I don’t know.
That I don’t know is how a baby sees it. To a baby they do not have the word and the story attached to it, so they climb on it and use it as a something to hold on to, they have infinite use of it. It can be anything. But as soon as they learn, what that word is, they start being restricted by the story.
Like everything we have learned, those stories restrict us if we believe them, if we accept them as fact. Ultimately facts don’t exist, every-thing is just a word, or a story and that belief in those words, create our outcomes.
When we let go of the words / labels, we start seeing the world for what it really is, which is, every atom is infinite possibility, unlimited and ever changing.
If we call someone a good person, we are judging them. It is not a complement, it is not seeing them for who they really are. We have all been both bad and good, in life. The truth of the situation is, they are just a person.
Do you see how that word, even though well intentioned, is actually an insult, it is an external judgement, it is you saying I think you are good. It is not seeing the whole person.
So the belief that that word good exists, then creates judgement upon others. If that word did not exist, what would you say about other people? You would see them for who they are wholly. You would talk about what they are actually dong, in and of the moment. You would say “I like they way they care for their mother”. Which is real, and automatically a complement. So feel into how now, if I call you a good person, how does that feel? Is it real to you?
There are so many words in the English language, that literally don’t exist and cause judgment based off this non existing thing.
In the group once we started letting go of these words, We started to let go of judgment of ourselves. You could feel the releases of energy in the room and in the people. How would you feel if people stopped judging you and how would you feel if you stopped judging yourself? Then we started a meditation and a lot of spirits came in to start clearing the energy away.
It was a huge night for all.
Super excited to see what happens, as we start to really get going, because this was only the first night. Monster night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
