ONE OF GOD'S FOOLS (Just Playin' - The Part) January 30th
It is said that Shakespeare announced that “we are all actors and the world is our stage.” How often to we hear words and they ring true but we just let them go by without investigation. Do you like the saying? Or does it scare you? If you like it, do you believe it or just simply take it as an interesting idea? If it scares you, is it the thought that you are not the one doing it, that brings up the fear? For if you are the actor, who wrote the script and where are you going and what will you do? Ever notice that you can make all the plans you want to, but rarely does it happen the way you think it will? You go to bed the night before and have all these plans about how the day will play out and then upon waking none of them happen.
Life is being lived through you. You have been assigned a part and it is being played out beautifully no matter whether you like it or dislike it, the show goes on. If you don’t believe this, see if you can stop it. See if you can stop doing what you do. All things that point to Truth can be investigated. You don’t have to take someone’s word for it, all you have to do is see for yourself.
We are all used to Serve Life. Your only role is actually to watch/Witness how you are used.
Eventually, as you begin to watch/Witness as opposed to “thinking” you are doing it, you will begin to be surprised by life. It is actually working for you and everyone.
Most people don’t like the “thought” that they are being used, however, it happens in spite of one’s likes or dislikes.
The more comfortable you become with it the more enjoyable life becomes. Because that old saying “what you resists persists” is not just a saying. As you begin to become Aware that you are not doing it … it creates a natural relaxation and then resistance goes down and you get to see what is done.
Most people “think” they know what they will do, they think they know everything that is going to happen and how they will react to it. But it is not true, you don’t ever know what you will do until the moment arrives for you to do it. So many times there has been the thought that “I” will do something or will not do something and the something “I” said I wouldn’t do, “I” did and the something “I” said “I” would do … didn’t happen.
Just begin to watch and wait and see what it is that you do or don’t do, don’t tell a story about it (or even if you do … don’t believe it so firmly).
We are all just playing our parts, we can be kind to one another while we do it, kindness comes from seeing that we are all doing the best that we can, how could we do any better than what we are doing, if we could, we would, we can only think we can do better and “better” is the enemy of good, because it is saying that the moment we are in isn’t good enough. If there is to be a “better” it will come.
So back to being used, all things Serve. Sometimes we serve in ways that look helpful and sometimes we serve in ways that don’t look helpful, but just know that everything helps itSelf, no matter what it looks like.
