Let Go of the Stories

969206_223880034433500_981849729_n I made a comment during a recent Q&A with Marianne Williamson in her 4-week online seminar called ‘Divine Alignment of Body and Soul’. It was a very spontaneous decision to write and submit this comment regarding holding onto ego/mind stories that do not serve us, ‘raise’ our level of consciousness or well-being, or lift us out of limited ideas about who we are and what we are capable of BEing.

I have observed how many, if not most people – in this case, ones who had created body issues for themselves, also seem to have a strong attachment to a negative narrative running in their mind – a ‘story’ or ‘stories’ related to their history or some type of experience, ‘trauma’, or set of circumstances ‘outside’ of themselves. As if something external was/is responsible for our thoughts, choices, addictions, and unhealthy or unloving behaviors towards ourselves and/or others. This type of thinking and ‘victim consciousness’ is what Caroline Myss calls “woundology”. I was hearing and reading about a lot of woundology-speak from participants during the seminar, so I wanted to briefly raise the topic (and share the transcript of the excerpt here), because I know that for most who think and speak in woundology stories, it is an unconscious, habitual, pattern that reinforces the ‘wound’, trauma’, behavior and thinking. I also know that something wonderful happens, and a shift occurs on a mental and deep cellular level once we recognize our very own ‘Divine’ Nature’. Everything changes. Everything.

Congruency

“Our true calling is the call to ultimate congruence within oneself.” ~ Caroline Myss

It could be said that the true spiritual path is the path within oneself of being or becoming a congruent human being. It is living in a state of inner-harmony, so that we do not live a life of ‘interior betrayal’. A congruent human being recognizes and listens to the still small voice within and follows its guidance, even if it is uncomfortable, scary, or unthinkable at first. It might be telling you to pick up the phone, apologize to someone, start walking or exercising, change career or diet, be more honest with yourself and others, help someone, forgive someone who mistreated or abused you, or whatever it is. Fear might come up. The ego might get noisy and argue with the still small voice and what it is telling you, that’s where courage comes in. It takes courage to be a congruent human being. When the still small voice offers us something that has the potential to bring us into alignment with our truth – the courage will be there. It will just naturally rise up to meet and support us.

When we are living congruently, we are “Being our very own beingness” as Lester Levenson said. It is recognized as a feeling of inner-peace, harmony, ‘rightness’, effortlessness, balance, imperturbability. Everything flows. We are not going against anything – not resisting anything, because we know what is profoundly ‘right’ for us. It is not a destination or set in stone – it is a fluid state. It is a place of synchronicity where ‘magic’ happens. The identity (in my case the ‘mu’) seems to disappear as BEingness takes over. As during a performance when the music just flows through the body – the instrument, as opposed to ‘mu’ thinking about it or trying to control it. It is effortless perfection. This is how it is in all areas of life when we are congruent beings.

When we are honest, true, and congruent, everything seems easier, more effortless; It flows, It is all perfection – literally ‘all good’, regardless of whatever is going on or happening externally. Congruency is a state of knowing and being who and what we really are.
