Another vitally important element of this seemingly endless period of waiting has to do with closing the gaps between Who We Really Are and Who We Are in Daily Life. Gaps come in many forms. Anything that creates an artificial split or division within our beings is a gap. Some of them were put in place by us a long time ago as survival mechanisms; however, they no longer serve us and now need to be dismantled. It's really important that we find these places and build bridges to close the gap as soon as possible.
Here are some possible areas to look at:
Covering ourselves with a cloak of invisibility while being upset that we are not truly seen.
Not speaking our truth while being upset that we are not being heard or understood.
Not fully living the truth that we speak and know in our core.
Letting past fears and past experiences influence our present actions when we really know better.
Holding onto the belief that we have to make a choice between two things; that we can't have it all.
Clinging onto old hurts and wounds as an excuse for not opening our hearts.
Yearning to be with our One True Love, while grabbing onto any relationship that comes our way.
Relying on hope or trust, rather than knowing.
Really wanting to move to our next level, but refusing to step out of our comfort zone to do it.
Filling our self with mental concepts without making them our own and applying them to our daily life.
Relying on second hand knowledge from others instead of following our own inner knowing.
Wanting to change the world, but refusing to change our own self.
Wanting to serve the One, but getting caught up in our own processing, healing or problems which keeps the focus onto our self.
Being really "spiritual" one moment and really 3 D (3rd dimensional) the next.
Filling our life with illusory New Age practices rather than being REAL and TRUE.
Having really deep inner worlds, but keeping them all locked inside, rather than embodying them and sharing them with others.
Holding onto the belief that we can't have money if we are being "spiritual".
Carrying the split between our strong inner knowing versus doubting what we know.
Sitting on the sidelines criticizing the efforts of others who are rowing, while making no effort to birth a better world our self.
Accepting the compromise between the work we do and what we really want to do.
The fear of leaping versus the yearning to leap.
Feeling that meditation replaces the need for action, for fully living what we believe.
Keeping our family life separate from our spiritual life. The same is true with our friends and associates.
Wanting to make profound changes while tenaciously holding onto the security of our status quo.
Wanting more love in our life without being more loving.
Wanting deeper intimacy with others while keeping the doors to our own being firmly closed.
Needing healing, but pushing it away.
Being totally capable and healthy, but always feeling that we need more healing.
Wanting to move forward, but refusing to clean out our past.
Holding onto expired elements, while bemoaning the lack of the New in our lives.
Knowing about real sacred loving, but remaining addicted to destructive sexual patterns and behaviors.
Wanting to be real, but denying how we really feel by suppressing our emotions.
Constantly judging between "good" and "bad" behavior.
Believing in the artificial separation between "spiritual" and "non spiritual".
Believing that being strong and honest isn't being "spiritual".
Believing that being raw and vulnerable is weakness.
Waiting for something big to happen versus seeing that it is already here!
This is just a partial list of possible gaps and splits. But I hope that it's helpful.
As long as we still carry a huge gap within us, if our selves are divided and split, we won't be able to move forward into our New Lives. If we aren't in alignment within our own beings, how can we expect to do what we came here to do? How can we experience the fulfillment of our Wildest Dreams?
As long as we carry major gaps and splits within us, we will be pulled into two or more directions. This makes us susceptible to constant distractions that pull us away from our true destiny and purpose. Please remember the tightrope walker and how it takes our TOTAL FOCUS and TOTAL COMMITMENT to get to our true goal. If we are looking here and there, rather than focusing on why we are really here at this time, we will surely lose our balance. If we are jumping back and forth between the splits in our being, we can't bring our full being into form.
If we are passively sitting on the sidelines as an observer, if we are endlessly meditating rather than incorporating the Greater Reality into our daily physical lives, if we are keeping ourselves constantly numbed out with alcohol or drugs, or if we are mindlessly doing our New Age affirmations, waiting for "Spirit" or the "Universe" to do it for us without putting in any effort of our own, then we will have failed the very reason we came to this planet at this time -- to serve in the transition from duality to Oneness during this critical Time of Completion.
Any gaps within us need to be bridged as soon as possible. Any splits within us need to be merged together and healed. Our true nature is whole and any perceived divisions within us are false. We must thoroughly scan our beings and see whatever behaviors and beliefs we still carry within us that keep us small, limited, divided or fearful. At the same time, our connection with our true core being must be continually nourished and strengthened. This has to be done immediately so we can move to our next level and to our New Life.
