I did a YOFA jhe Session for you who are on the jhe list today.
To best embrace the benefit of this session, please (re)read the part of chapter 12 of Rooted in the Infinite that addresses the ego. If you don't have much time, read the section called "Ego as Distortion" on page 121.
As a result of this session, I expect you to feel like someone washed your windows.
Clarity, precision, and equanimity in your perception quickly turn into wisdom and compassion in your personality.
That is the effect of this session.
Today's alignment goes a long way toward evaporating the distortions created by the resistant aspect of the ego.
To say that in a positive way, today's alignment helps you purify your desires.
It brings you in touch with the brilliance, talent, and unique value of your human instrument. I sometimes refer to this as the positive aspect of ego. It is ego as instrument.
Here are some of the effects you may notice. You may notice both of them or this may work completely under the surface. Either way, this is the movement that is generated by today's jhe session.
- Your Desires — Your desires begin to feel very good to you when your mind lands on them. Even desires that usually create a feeling of frustration or even despair, start to feel more fresh and exciting. And of course, this brings them closer to fruition.
- Your Relationships — You see others in a more positive light. Even thinking of, or encountering, those who usually annoy you or even trigger rage does not bother you in the same way. This is because today's alignment gives you access to much more interest in the richness of your own experience. Displeasure with, disappointment with, and disapproval of others simply cannot compete with the power of your engagement with your own true journey through life.
So, you naturally engage more of your attention with the purity of your desires. And your negative attention to others naturally atrophies. It just dissolves. And as it does, so does the hurt you have been causing yourself through your attention to what is not wanted. And ironically, you actually give the other person more space to become the way you want them to be by releasing your mental grip on their apparent flaws.
Many teachers talk about the ego as a purely negative phenomenon that we want nothing to do with. I call this only half of the ego. And this session moves you toward a natural, easy, pleasant, effortless release of that part of the ego that is made of resistance.
So what about the other half of ego? It is the joy of being a focused, individual point of consciousness. It is the pure expression of your uniqueness. It is the gift that is beyond measure that you give to the world. And that gift is expanded as you increase your ability to be purely yourself.
So, to summarize, this session brightens your light, expands the gift that you are, and makes you more attractive, more appreciated, more enjoyed by others.
This is a cultivation of your unique brilliance.
Your expression may intensify or take new forms. If you are an artist, keep your brushes, violin, pencil, etc. handy. I think you will be pouring through your chosen medium in new and satisfying ways.
If you do not see yourself as an artist, you may quickly realize that your everyday life is a brilliant work of art. Joyful harmonious expressiveness (jhe) can take infinite forms.
YOFA is based on the book "Rooted in the Infinite"
