The Forest or the Trees?

Uncategorized Jul 12, 2018

I have spent the last couple of months working my way through an amazing book called “Power vs. Force”. The author, Dr. David Hawkins is a psychiatrist, medical doctor as well as a spiritual researcher, and the content and messages derived from this amazing book seemed to pull together every book I have ever read on personal development. The book was exploring the “maps of human consciousness” and the various levels we exist in is often called the “unified field” or the natural energy system we are all comprised of and connected to. There were so many amazing pieces that I strive to remember, but one that stood out in my mind above all others was this statement was that “ 85% of the worlds population is below the critical level of 200, which is the frequency of courage, for below courage exist pride, fear, anger, apathy, grief and desire.” When we live in the low energy patterns of these emotions we cannot see the possibilities that abound, even it bit off our nose. The perceptual filters created by these various low energy states have disallowed the masses from seeing the truth, that there is a better way, that love does exist, that there can be peace and brotherhood, that we can learn to trust one and other and there is abundance for all.

When I look back at the journey I have been on, it is easy to see why I stayed stuck for so many years. The energy patterns I was living in were those of fear, anger, apathy and grief, which only served to support the illusion that there was no hope. Even though there were numerous examples of love, courage, peace and acceptance in the universe, I could not see the forest for the trees. The trees for me were the experiences that lead me to believe that I had no worth, and that perhaps my existence was perhaps a mistake, for why would God allow this happen to one of his own? It took the faith of a few people who saw in me what I could not see myself, that there was so much more to me than I could ever had imagined. The forest for me was the incredible opportunities that existed before me, the birthright I had to happiness, love and acceptance, I just had to learn to keep my eyes and heart open. I have since learned not to accept the advice and opinions of those living in those low energy fields (and try not to judge), as they too cannot see the “forest for the trees”. Did not Jesus say as he was being murdered “forgive them, they know not what they do”?

The life experiences I had encountered had deceived me in believing that I was worthless, that I would not amount to anything more than the low energy experiences I found myself living each day. But the truth of it was that these experiences were to serve as my teachers, and the lessons learned would help create a life of service where I could hopefully help others see that the path they are on is just a part of life’s journey. Where are you on your journey?
