A gardener plants a seed and gives it water, nutrients in the soil, nourishment, the sun shines and gives UV rays necessary for growth.
Once we plant a seed and have watered that seed, we need to “not interfere with it”
We need to let it grow. Doing only what is necessary for that seed to manifest its own potential in this world.
We create the conditions for it to sprout and grow
Some seeds grow, some do not. That’s nature.
The unmanifest potential is there in the seed, the infinite intelligence is there already in the seed, we do our part, then get out of the way and let it happen.
I look at all the weeds in the garden here and think man, look at them go! There is no stopping them. I don’t have to do ANYTHING for weeds to grow and we get some real monster ones hear year round, some like six feet tall and I spend hours weeding the bloody garden. But I love it. Gives me something to do.
It’s like this with INTENTIONS, we create the condition, then get out of the way, giving a bit of work here and there but as Seth says “not interfering with it”
We plant that Seed in Framework 1, it journeys into Framework 2 where it grows and develops, then it shows up back here in Framework 1 almost like magic. But it takes what we call “time”. And sometimes ti don’t happen at all, or the unmanifest potential turns into something we don’t recognise, but still Intended into this world.
I’ve heard this idea expressed often by Wayne Dyer and other speakers as “Let go, and Let God”
I like this version better than “letting go and letting god” the “LET GO” version is more direct, it’s something you can do, you mentally let go, you switch your focus to others things in life and forget about it.
If you had a hope in your hand “LET GO” works. “Letting” doesn’t do shit. It’s always in the future, it’s never NOW when you are “Letting Go” or preparing to let go, it’s a BS excuse for not doing anything right fucking now.
In the Gita it speaks of action and inaction, detachment from the fruits of ones labor.
The eternal Tao speaks of being one with Tao (the way), “it happens”
it is us not us that happens, but “it”. We move into alignment with the unseen order of things, we don’t expect the unseen to move into alignment with us.
The grace of God, or the Holy Spirit, moves THROUGH us, like an electric current moves through a wire, that energy needs a focus and an outlet to be of any use, otherwise it goes untapped, it is pure potential.
The seed WANTS to grow, we create the conditions… and allow it do what it does.
The sun gives of itself. The rain and water give of there metaphorical self. It goes on and on, Nature recycles everything, so even a seed that never sprouts is never wasted, it becomes fuel and food for the next plant, the next thing that grows from the unmanifest to the manifest.
The Holy Spirit moves through us, and moves through the seed. Everything in this world is an idea expressed. We find our own magical rhythm in life, by “allowing” rather than controlling or holding on to, or forcing anything.
In the river of life, we can go with the current, or lie back and glide along the water effortlessly, going with the current. Some people are always trying to go upstream, which is fine. But it’s very tiring. You can’t do it forever. It wears you out. Sometimes when we are tired or sick, we give up, we let go and let god. We trust in Life.
We let the river of life carry us, but then when we are well we go back to swimming upstream all the time, and wonder why things have to be so difficult.
Seeds want to grow. It’s their potential. They were born to do it. But sometimes it’s not.
We allow them to be what they already are, and let the water of life nourish the seed, allowing it to happen. Too much water kills the seed, not enough dries it out. Too much heat once it has sprouted can kill the plant, too little sunlight will also prevent the seed from its own potential or see it wither painfully and slowly.
There are some plants in the garden right now that are withering in the heat. I’ve want to do everything I can to keep them alive. But I’ve also got to step back and let what will happen, happen.
You can’t micro-manage the universe, or even the part of it that is YOU. You’ve just got to live each day the best you can.
Conditions have to be just right for the seed to grow.
But we don’t plant just one seed. We plant MANY seeds, some will grow, some will not.
Some plants will grow big and strong, others will wither and die before their time.
What are seeds, but ideas expressed. Nature’s abundance.
The seed is only one way the holy spirit expresses itself in this world. The seed is infinite in its potential.
Your ideas are infinite,
your self is infinite.
The holy spirit expressed itself through you also, but you have to allow it, and not block up that electric eternal torrent.
In your home, an electrical outlet is useless until you plug something into it. The electricity needs a conduit to travel along to power something, to conduct the electricity. Otherwise it’s just an ugly useless hole in the wall.
Spirit needs a conduit to be manifest in this world, and that conduit is your physical body, which is also subject to electrical,chemical, gravitational forces.
Your body, like the seed grows from the womb, into a baby, the baby into an adult.
Left alone, your body does what it does. It just needs some food, water, hot and cold, sleep etc, a bit of exercise and love and gets along just fine.
Your ideas… your beliefs grow like leaves and branches on a tree, each branching off into new directions, some withering, some flourishing. We have infinite ideas, and we are expressing them all the time. If we are paying attention, we want to grow more of those beliefs that are helping us in some way, and stop over-feeding the beliefs and ideas that are causing us excessive un-necessary suffering, that are holding us back from being “ok” with ourselves.
Self goes on expressing itself in time and space, on and on, growing and giving and recycling just like Nature does with the seeds and the trees. It never ends.
All those Intentions and manifesty…stuff. Well that happens anyhow no matter what we are doing. We can speed some things along, but everything happens about when it ought to, and we need not interfere with it. “Let Go and Let God”. It applies not only to the good times, but perhaps more importantly in the shitty times when everything is seemingly going wrong. It’s much harder to do then, so it’s better to practice while times are good and we’re feeling good. Then when times are not so good, it’s ALREADY as established habit, like exercise or watering the garden.
I can be super happy or depressed as fuck and it don’t matter. I’m still going the to water the garden. Which I mean literally, there is an actual garden right out the window behind this computer monitor. But, just about everything I’ve said here, you can take the word “Garden” and switch it with “Mind” or “Belief” and it applies equally.
To finish off, here’s a Quote from the old Jedi Master himself, Sethy McSethington
NoME Chapter 9: Session 863, June 27, 1979
- Each being experiences life as if it were at life’s center. This applies to a spider in a closet as well as to any man or woman. This principle applies to each atom as well. Each manifestation of consciousness comes into being feeling secure at life’s center — experiencing life through itself, aware of life through its own nature. It comes into being with an inner impetus toward value fulfillment. It is equipped with a feeling of safety, of security within its own environment with which it is fit to deal. It is given the impetus toward growth and action, and filled with the desire to impress its world. [end quote]
