When I was younger, I loved shopping. I ended up buying things just out of boredom, or trying to fill up on something I didn’t have inside. Love, probably. Industries have become wealthy on the lack of self-love and self-fulfillment of billions of people.
I eventually got rid of all my credit cards, because I ended up using them to convince myself I had more money than I actually did. Another lure that has made billions for credit card suppliers.
So now when I go shopping, I enjoy the experience of wandering through a nice upscale department store. I like smelling the fine leather handbags and shoes. Or wandering through the jewelry section,
But I often leave empty-handed, not because I feel I can’t afford those things, but because I don’t have the same need to buy things from a place of lack. And that doesn’t stop me from enjoying the experience.
There is another factor, at least for me. It feels like the clothing and even the jewelry are not a close enough match to who I am. I can’t seem to find things that I resonate with enough to spend money on.
The other day I was in what I would consider a quality department store, and yet the products seemed cheaply made, especially the jewelry. Were things better made in the past? Are producers cutting corners these days to cut costs?
Or, am I feeling like my value has superseded what can be humanly produced. Maybe a little of both. Either way, I’m not spending nearly as much money.
I ain’t buying it.
So let’s move this narrative to the perspective of the world we live in and how we as consciousness trailblazers relate to it.
We can now enjoy the 3D world in any way we choose, and we don’t need to buy into it. The drama, the suffering and pain. We can wander through our days, looking here and there and being the observer, and saving ourselves from depleting our energetic bank account.
Even the wonderful things we see before us, that other humans have created. We can marvel at them, at their craftsmanship, their talent, and even at the accolades they receive from other humans.
We can enjoy all of that without investing ourselves energetically in it. We can appreciate their journey, without comparing ours to theirs. Without any emotional investment that would deplete our joy.
But, having said that, there’s nothing wrong with participating in some drama from time to time. Even if it’s just emotional. It can be titillating. Otherwise we tend to feel bored these days. But the difference is that now we know it’s drama, and we know we can opt out any time we want.
One minute we may be waving our fists at the news, and the next feel blissed out. It can happen pretty quickly now, can’t it? In the past, it took so much longer to move out of those darker feelings.
The Master can choose to experience anything they want. Nothing is really bad for them, unless they forget they are the Master.
Once you realize how big that is, you probably will not be as interested in indulging in the drama. When you know on the deepest of levels that it is a choice, it will lose its appeal pretty quickly.
Put simply, you ain’t buying it!
