"Our treasure lies in the beehive of our knowledge. We are perpetually on the way thither, being by nature winged insects and honey gatherers of the mind." Friedrich Nietzsche
I often come across the belief in others that we as individuals need something or someone (an external force) to give us Knowledge so that we can learn to understand. Yet, it has often been my own experience that we find Knowledge in our own experiences and that we unlock them internally through our own devices - rarely is Knowledge taught to us, but rather discovered.
In this, the Treasure is unlocked by an inner key; yet often, that Gold isn't enough.
Once we've tasted that sweet release, we crave for more, and this craving is what makes us Strange - we are removed from the parameters of what is described as Normal, because we are no long motivated by what is 'Normal.'
We can talk about our experiences and how they bring about a shift in our perspectives - the more we begin to experience the world in a specific modality, we become more accustomed to those vibrations - we begin to lose our fear of those expressions - because we are better able to predict the outcome.
That outcome cannot be told to us - but rather, we discover it ourselves through following through with the experience.
It is when we isolate ourselves from having experiences that we miss out on the Knowledge. A person of Power is someone who is constantly putting themselves into situations where they will attract experiences - regardless of the manifestation.
Inspiration is found in every moment - I know for myself that I'm not a joyful person - not because I have a description of the world that I'm waiting to have fulfilled - though I feel like I'm often waiting (this is an agreement, with my life partner as I wait for her to arrive at that place within herself where she wants to experiences a shift in her own life - and want to act on that want,) but because I don't know how to experience and express Joy. I lack those tools. Yet, I endeavor to attract those experiences which I trust and hope are helping me uplift that aspect of myself so that I can enter into those expressions. (The challenge is ratifying those emotions with my situation, where I don't move too far ahead of my partner.)
I often find people who will simply want to leave their significant other behind because they refuse to keep pace - yet the reality often is - we are all expanding - just not in the same direction. If we have faith, we will eventually find that we've arrived to the same place - just at our own pace and by our own devices.
That knowledge is ingrained within us - we already know the HOW - it is purely about unlocking that knowledge - which is through finding inspiration - and by attracting experiences that help us overcome our fears and break down those barriers, which are descriptions and concreteness - so that we can unlock that hidden treasure.
This is why my message is constantly about reminding us that our journey is about Humility and Openness and Faith - Fear is the mind killer - Pride and Arrogance are detractors and Narrow MIndedness is a blockage that prevents enlightenment. The Key then becomes about Virtuous Living... The Trick is figuring out what that means to us.
