Hamlet questions the physical existence that we all suffer from, the ups and downs, the pains, the lack and delay of justice, the rich pricks, the heartaches of relationships, the seemingly endless sea of troubles.
By questioning our very consciousness, we learn something:
Would you rather be conscious, or forever unconscious?
Consciousness, being in the mind, means that we are just aware of what is happening around us, and what happens to us is only a matter of being aware of this physical body and circumstance, as all pain, especially heartache, resides in the mind.
So the question of being, the I AM, behind EVERYTHING, is the cause of all our pains, struggles, desires, and wants. To BE or NOT to be, is really a matter of what we choose to do with our consciousness.
Awareness is a funny game, as we are extremely partial to the physical existence that we encounter everyday.
Our senses fool us because the sensory perception is filtered through our interpretation of the input received. Each one of us individually will interpret the events that happen around us differently, and due to life and circumstance, the mind can erase things, distort things, and make things either bigger or smaller than what they actually are.
All of our senses are connected to nerves and synapses that are firing in the mind, which is really our brain’s way of telling us what is going on in the world, mainly so that we can survive.
However, in such a comfortable society, survival is really a matter of how much danger you have to survive daily, or not. And for most of us, we don’t think about surviving much, so we exist, and with our existence being so comfortable, we always tend to focus on what we DON’T have.
Hence, the suffering.
We rely on our feelings to carry us after receiving input from outside sources, and we constantly move along, doing things to amplify or minimize the feelings we have.
We do this with everything.
You can bypass all of this.
You CAN BE that which you see in your mind, in your dreams. By cultivating the feeling beforehand, you can literally become a beacon of light, attracting everything that you now ARE. There is no WANT or DESIRE because you BECOME THAT which you seek.
This takes the pressure and fight out of life. No more stress.
This requires faith and belief. It requires you to not rely on this physical existence for feedback. The feedback is usually not going to tell you things are as you see them in your mind, and that’s okay.
Releasing yourself from the physical bondage of relying on the physical world to give you what you seek is the definition of TRUE freedom. You don’t have to remain a slave to the physical.
This is the way into health, wellness, wealth, and the life that you have dreamt of all of your life.
To BE or NOT to BE.
What we focus on, or give our attention to, is exactly what will be created around us in our world.
So if you FOCUS on what you DON’T want, what you DON’T want is exactly what you will receive, because that is what you FOCUSED on. If you focus on what you DO want, you will suffer, because in focusing on what you WANT, you are believing that you DON’T have.
The literal “trick” is BEING that which you seek.
There is no need for WANT. You already have it. Because you ARE it.
Life has a funny way of granting us those things which we really internally desire and are unaware of in perfect timing, and also when we aren’t looking for it.
It’s why when we think we have found what we want, it quickly becomes something that we take for granted and lose.
The simple key to this is to use I AM in your day. In every moment you should be focused on what you ARE. No need to say it out loud. Use the power of your mind and visualize. You can visualize the scenery, the literal words I AM, followed by whatever words you ARE.
You will find that over time, your language begins to change. Why say I AM a millionaire?
Why not say I AM wealthy, rich in body, mind, and health?
You will find the things that you desire are not the things you desire at all. They are just things which pass. It is YOU who becomes that which you SEEK.
By discovering yourself in I AM, you can find out when you are frustrated, angry, envious, proud, etc. and begin to change your language around the lapses in your “attention.”
This is why the gratitude practice is so mind-blowingly successful in helping people live happier lives: being grateful is literally saying “I AM GRATEFUL FOR WHAT I HAVE.”
What a mindset.
Try using I AM to be that which you seek this week and get back to me on the changes you become aware of around you.
