This Concept is simple yet sometimes I overlook its simplicity! My experiences lately are of really “seeing” things occurring around me. From my work in the salon, everyday life, to the I AM facilitating I am involved in; I can see and feel in others that which is also in me.
In this place, I realize if I see it in others then I am seeing what I know. It may be a behavior or a deeper issue. It is up to me to be honest with myself and look within. In this way I can uncover what I may not have seen or wanted to see. I have to do this as an observer and without judgment or I get tangled up in my resistance. It is like a detective’s work, find the facts and compute what is found to lead to the answers!
For example: as I observe the children on the playground at my son’s school I see lots of behaviors surfacing! Wonderful little mirrors they are here! Lately the theme I see is the kids interacting with anger and blame. You know, the ‘he did this’ and ‘she did that’ and ‘I am telling because I am mad or want it to stop.’
The feeling for me as I look deeper and go within is seeing the areas I am still in anger or blame. This, my friends, I know as victimhood. Yes, I have worked on this piece for many years and thought I was pretty clear! This would be the “duh” moments of “Oh, there is another layer to this issue!” It is the subtle areas I still need to look at. So yes, I still have victimhood inside. Yes, I still blame the outside world for what I feel, think and do.
Today for me it is more subtle, so I need to be ever conscious. That’s where using the Concept: “You can only see that which you know” comes in handy. In this place of consciousness I am able to see it, own it, change it! Only from here can I be a fully conscious creator who directs my life. I can’t do that while I think I’m a victim.
Take this Concept and play! See what you are “seeing” and reflect inside for where it is in you! You can only see that which you know! Also, at times we all get stuck! Assistance from a I AM facilitator can allow you to see more clearly. It can expedite the process when you are ‘in your stuff’ and make life all that much easier and more joyful.
