Power in Chaos

We are all living and existing on the same field of actions. The stage we use is called the world. But there are subtle influences which we can't see with our eyes; we can only feel them with our hearts ("souls" for some). These unseen intentions have the latest impact on how the next scene unfolds. They actually hold the key to the whole story! As players in this drama of life, our job is to pay close attention to ourselves, on a deep level. Here, we will realize areas in which we need to let go and other aspects which we need to hold dearly.

Has your life become one rigid scene after another? Controlled? Lifeless? Fear-driven? Does it feel like your soul has lost its purpose? These are internal states that do not lead to growth or development. What generally emerges after being in such a state for a while is chaos; our external world reflects our inner functioning. In stages of chaos we find ourselves in deep unpredictability. However if we truly listen, something new arises, something that signals us to create a better design of ourselves.

When we respond to the new design with openness, trust, faith, honesty and care, a whole new story emerges of our capacity and we find ourselves in sheer delight. Sometimes, when we notice a breakdown inside; it could indeed be our breakthrough, and we can use the chaos to clear out the old. The question arises, Am I ready to trek on a path of evolutionary, internal shifting, reaching a higher level of understanding? Am I ready for the growing curve?

I'm reminded of my definition of God: A supreme source of constant energy. When I'm open to receiving this energy, I become higher in awareness and worth. From this greater awareness, chaos seems like a game, an opportunity for more growth and a welcomed part of my life story. It's amazing that in "The Butterfly Effect," small fluctuations of air current impact the whole atmosphere of the weather. Our subtle thoughts and vibrations influence not only our inner world, but the stage on which we live. When these consist of thoughts trapped in illusion, ALGAE (Anger, Lust, Greed, Attachment, and Ego) we will most certainly invite chaos, and that becomes an opportunity to revolutionize my interpretation of who I am and why I'm here.

Ultimately, chaos is simply a means to return the soul to its ultimate truth, and that is, Love.
