Abstract: Addressing the nature of old continuities that keep us thinking that “this is just how life is”. Establishing new perspectives of what is possible. Tips on how to withdraw from the old continuity in the most comfortable and empowering ways.
In times of major change in the world we find ourselves looking for ways to stabilize and humanize our lives. We know we are entrenched in an old continuity, yet find ourselves wondering if “this just how life is”. There is also is a deep rooted fear that shifting our continuity might threaten our survival. We also know that whether the change is physical, mental or emotional, we experience withdrawal. In this case, we experience withdrawal from a self-defeating continuity to a context of well being and living freedom.
In a culture promoting lack of connection with self and and source, we yearn for a new context of living. Fortunately, there are many ways to shape our lives. Not only can we choose to survive, but also thrive. Many visionaries refer to this shift as “being in the culture, but not of it”. It requires the ability to observe, be present and willing to be making new choices of how we think, feel and take actions in our lives.
Jean Liedloff, author of “The Continuum Concept”, spent several years deep in the South American jungle living with the Stone Age Indians. Her experience changed her perception of human nature. She noticed how her own culture had lost much of it’s natural sense of well-being. She commented that , “I seldom had a clear sense that these people were of the same species as ours. The children were uniformly well-behaved, never fought, were never punished, always obeyed happily and instantly”. The children co-exited in the midst of strong, busy central figures to whom they were peripheral. Not surrounded by stressed out adults who are trying to control their behavior to seek acceptance and approval from their culture.
In the quest for appropriate experiences, more and more people are making the quality of their lives the highest priority. They are following their inner guidance while allowing the details of their vision to be revealed as the old continuity dissolves, resolves and evolves. They know if they continue to deny their internal guidance they may find themselves in the middle of crisis (i.e. getting sick, having accidents, getting a divorce etc). They understand that crisis is often a way to get a multidimensional kick in the butt to make the changes they have been wanting.
Withdrawal from an old continuity requires making a decision and being fully present. In a state of sobriety we build power and release ourselves from thinking we are powerless victims of our continuity. We can make powerful choices, focus, keep our energy in motion, shift our perceptions and realize the truth of how our lives can really be.
We can experience the joy of a new context living by releasing ourselves from the old self defeating continuities such as…
