Wanting, Waiting, Longing, Loving
What we may fail to realize is that the whole of life is set up, purposely designed, around a model of wanting, waiting and longing and that what we need to do with it – though I speak as someone who has not completely done this but only sees it dimly – is to convert it to loving.
The very act of descending into Third-Density reality entails cutting ourselves off from All That Is. It’s an act of separation and polarization.
This reality’s basis is the experience of ourselves as something apart from something else, an act which challenges and puts barriers in the way of love.
Now we have, evidently, plumbed that experience and are taking our first steps to return to unity with All That Is. And we are wanting that experience and waiting.
This is the lowest point in the sacred arc that moves away from God and returns to Him/Her/It.
From now on we grow in our experience of unity – and love.
The Architect of Life has furnished us with a mechanism that keeps us moving towards Him, which I’ve described elsewhere as a “longing for liberation.” (1) It’s a subsensible thirst for God, a yearning which we try to fill with possessions and experiences but which can only be filled by God.
That mechanism is built-in to all of life and keeps it moving back to Him.
From all I’ve read and experienced the only escape from longing itself lies in loving God. Loving engages the Law of Attraction, another design feature of life, in a wholesome and rewarding way. Fearing trips it in an unwholesome and unrewarding way. Either love or fear brings the object of our attention to us.
I suppose we could fear God and bring Him to us, but I’d think that the God brought near would be a fearsome projection of our own imaginations.
Let’s do as Chris said and “lose wait.” The wholesome way out of wanting, waiting, and longing, it seems to me, is to love God.
If we can remind ourselves that all things we want, for which we’re waiting and longing, are insufficient, except that one “thing” – God – if we can immerse all feelings of wanting, waiting, and longing in the love of God, I believe that all our difficulties will disappear.
I shall be experimenting with my own remedy myself. I too am trapped in wanting, waiting, and longing.
My hypothesis in saying this, unenlightened mortal that I am, is that love is both means and end, destination and journey, mechanism and reward.
If I want love, I get love. If I get it, I get my reward. In the course of getting my reward, I get the taste of God. In the course of getting a taste of Him, I realize Him. That’s my belief about the situation, starting out.
So, with these new powers of co-creatorship that we’ve been hearing so much about, let me create only love, which fills in emptying, rewards in being sought. Let me love God and the God in all of us only. Let me wait, want, and long for love. Love is the only thing that satisfies all three.
If you are wanting, waiting, or longing, and feeling oppressed, I suggest you love. Join me in the experiment and see whether that transforms a situation which now oppresses us into one that rewards. Evidently, from here on in, our only work is to lose our chains.
