RELATIONSHIP IS A CHOICE –
Hello fellow wayshowers! Master Merlin here. How wonderful that so many of you are truly beginning to understand “the Game” and its many concepts. We have a new layer for you today to dig deep with…Relationship. Oh the many facets of this Rubik’s Cube!
The foundation of a relationship, any relationship, is your choice about how to be in relation to something – be it a person, yourself, experiences (past & present), a situation, anything really. You see, you are in relation to everything around you, and of course to yourself. Think about that… whether it be a friend, family member, significant other, co-workers, kids, people you love, others who you’d rather not love, the foods you eat, the clothes you wear, the way you wear your hair, the way you breathe (short or long breaths), and the list goes on and on.
Based on your past experiences, you perceive events unfolding around you and you make choices that are almost automatic. But, you see, you forget that you always have a choice to make a higher choice, perhaps by shifting your perspective. For instance, if you ordinarily say no to something as a pattern, what if you at least gave space, or consideration, to the possibility of saying yes? Think about what “possibility” in itself could open you up to. And now, what if you actually said yes? Oh no! We’re off the rails, we’re out of control, we’re out of our comfort zone! But see, you were never in control in this masterful game in the first place (or are you?!), so why not loosen up while playing it? What’s the worst that can happen – that you’re going to have a new experience? Is that so terrible? No, of course it isn’t.
But you see, the whole game is about YOU! Confused yet? Good! We’re attempting to teach you that you just simply need to come back to your breath in order to play and win the game. By recognizing your surroundings and your feelings about them, you are beginning to give yourself options about how to rewire yourself – literally. In so doing, you are learning to step out of comfort zones, loosen the vulnerability strings, and transcend social programming you have chosen on some level to take on as truths. In this process, you begin to replace old programs with new ones. You begin to “expand your horizons” and shift into new opportunities. You may say, “Merlin, first of all, what?! AND second of all, I don’t want to change. I enjoy my comfort zones.” Well, my dears, here is the issue with the latter of your questions… you cannot have the very things you desire that appear to be escaping you, unless you attempt to step away from comfort zones. It is in the discomfort where you expand, expand, expand and thereby create space for the new things to come into your awareness that you have requested.
You see, how you choose to respond to being in relationship to everything in your current reality, creates your next reality. You have, then, to choose “newness/new patterns” consciously at some point to break the pattern of the old, which you claim you no longer desire to create the ability for the new to come in. So, take one thing, anything that you’d like to shift and focus on what you would prefer to have. Then create a plan in your mind’s eye for how you will respond to this pattern the next time it arises. Write it down if you have to. The fact that you are making an effort to shift these things at all should tell you that you are ready to begin anew. And that should reinforce that you will catch it when it arises because it is in your conscious awareness.
It is not as difficult as it may feel or sound. We are supporting your process every second of every minute in every day. As Mother Theresa tells you, “The fruit of your prayers is faith.” This means that the fact that you are asking for something new outside of yourself undergirds your belief that something greater than just you exists and that change can manifest. But it will require some movement from you first. And eventually, you will realize it was never outside of you to begin with and that thinking that it was, is the only sin that ever was.
With so much love in my heart for you,
You are LOVEDLOVEDLOVED……… THE MYSTIC
