Once You Liberate Yourself ~ Things Happen
We all want freedom, desire to be whole and well. At least, that's what we think or say. The reality is that we need to pay the price. We have to let go of what holds us back, liberate ourselves and then things happen .
CG Jung wrote, "Many people have never in their whole lives felt such a natural fulfillment because they were completely twisted. But they would experience it in the moment when they were able to liberate themselves from the twist —in that moment they would experience Tao" (Visions Seminar, Page 761).
As the old sage noted, there is a natural fulfillment in life. One person told me this morning, "I have never felt so whole and complete. But, it took letting go to get here. I had to do without what I was used to once I saw that it was holding me back."
Their dreams turned to nightmares so that they would listen. Images of cockroaches infesting their home awakened them in a cold sweat. They had to come to grips with the meaning of the cockroaches, what the roaches had to do with them and their life. It was a painful but transformative insight once they let themselves see and take to heart the message.
Energy freed up for them. They noticed that what had not seemed possible in various venues of life opened up; but it, the state of natural fulfillment, the Tao couldn't have been entered into without self-liberation.
