Releasing the Old Helps Us Grow Into A New Life and Potential

Releasing the Old Helps Us Grow Into A New Life and Potential

As we move and groove through the intersection of Fate St. and Free Will St. on Eternity Boulevard, I am reminded of some universals in the human condition. One of these is that as we evolve, we discover what is really true for us versus what is only conditionally or apparently true, leading us to leave some things behind.

While we are in a time of productive building, with Saturn in Pisces we are also learning how to “let go, let God,” blessing and forgiving much as we move through the dreamscape. We are always evolving, and life is about understanding yesterday is not today. As we grow, we learn new information, come to new understandings, and develop coping skills as we adapt to the constantly changing circumstances of everyday life. If we make our inner Saturn our friend, we see each day as an opportunity to integrate or re-integrate our bodies, feelings, and minds to become healthy vehicles expressing our Higher Self.

Moving through the twists and turns of various challenges and crises, our sense of what we think is “true” transforms as we become more aware of ourselves and the interrelated factors which brought us to those points of choice and change. Our truth transforms based in our level of awareness, and over time we realize we need a greater unconditional understanding freed from fear. Everything we go through, every crisis and challenge, helps us learn to choose, decide, and respond. These choices and decisions shape the future which follows.

As we mature, we refine parts of our personality by letting go of inadequate habits of acting, feeling, and thinking. All of life offers us continual opportunities to find new ways of expressing our Light, Life, and Love that will bear fruit in the future. To do this we must, like the trees, withdraw our life force from branches that are dead, and sprout new branches in new directions of growth.

Each time we let go of something or someone or even an idea, we experience a sense of emptiness. As we turn toward better actions, feelings, thoughts, and aspirations, we naturally stop agonizing over old parts of our life that are voided out and not real any more. And because it seems like the entire human race is moving through simultaneous endings and beginnings, we have to figure out what we’re experiencing of our own journey and what we’re picking up in the collective feeling field.

Endings are a natural part of evolution itself. And because Life itself requires growth, we’re always navigating between old interpretations, perceptions, and ways of doing our Being and figuring how to deal with what’s emerging.

To that end, here is a fragment from “An Essay On Karma,” itself a part of Light On The Path, one of the oldest books on Earth and certainly one of the most venerable works ever written. In a few places I have substituted certain terms that may be more familiar to our western minds than the original term used to clarify the intent of the author. I have also attempted to make it gender-neutral.

"It is said that a little attention to the pursuit of truth produces great Karmic results. That is because it is impossible to give any attention to the pursuit of truth without making a definite choice between what are familiarly called good and evil. The first step in the pursuit of truth brings the student to the tree of knowledge. Then you must pluck and eat; you must choose.

No longer are you capable of the indecision of ignorance. You go on, either on the good or on the evil path. And to step definitely and knowingly even but one step on either path produces great Karmic results.

The mass of humanity walk waveringly, uncertain as to the goal they aim at; their standard of life is indefinite; consequently their Karma operates in a confused manner. But when once the threshold of knowledge is reached, the confusion begins to lessen, and consequently the Karmic results increase enormously, because all are acting in the same direction on all the different planes: for the one who pursues truth cannot be half-hearted, nor can they return when they have passed the threshold.

These things are as impossible as that the adult should become the child again. The individuality has approached the state of responsibility by reason of growth; it cannot recede from it."

This makes it clear that as we cooperate with our growth into greater awareness, our lives come to a focus on all that will strengthen the connection between our personality and our Higher Self. These passages are a call for us to become the integrity we are and maintain that integrity for our life. If we are to grow, we may as well grow in a way which fulfills our heart and sense of purpose.

As we embrace our “Truth of Being,” many facets of our life and sense of purpose will naturally expand into the future in alignment with our intention and abilities. During those times when we are unable to do whatever we need to do, it’s helpful to go inward and examine what is no longer true, good, or useful in our lives, and gracefully move out of old habits and ways of living, feeling, and thinking. This is especially necessary when our lives are fragmenting, or a chapter is ending. While honoring the endings, we must also remember to embrace the beginnings.

This world is about passages. All forms pass away, and through that great Truth we learn detachment, compassion, discernment, and positivity. At some point, once we are spiritual adults we find ourselves naturally setting aside the shallow or disconnected realizations of our spiritual childhood and adolescence and see Life as the wholeness that it is.

Our growth from lesser to greater awareness is a continuum, where each turn of the wheel of time leads us into a new chapter of life with new requirements creating the need for us to grow and learn how best to deal with what’s in front of us. Every single lesser realization we had in the past is part of our ongoing process of Self-realization. The lesser must always give way to the greater, and our growth is infinite and eternal. That’s why we have nothing to fear from the voids, or any sense of “not knowing.” These forms of “emptiness,” which show us a new potential, will always be filled.

The voids created by the passing of old parts of the life enable us to attract more fulfilling experiences than we've known before that time. These are the times to shape our attraction in the form of our heart's desire, without being distracted by old echoes of perceptions of memories of perceptions of memories of perceptions of memories of...

Each of our planets shows some part of our personality and our relationship to the interpersonal and transpersonal fields of life. As we leave behind old planetary expressions, we find newer ones which fit our evolved life better than the behaviors we’ve left behind. And as the future is always in the making, here and now, the times of change open many doors which we get to explore as we need.

Right now, many things are ending for individuals as well as for all of humanity. And at the same time, there is productive building as well. Face the new time, the new way, and the new day, since we need new ideas, new perspectives, and new approaches for what is and will be.
