Empty Hands

“Everything the ego tells you that you need will hurt you. For although the ego urges you again and again to get, it leaves you nothing, for what you get it will demand of you.”

I thought some worldly goals, such as getting married or having kids were exempt, but then I got some powerful spiritual guidance to let those things go, too.

Now I’m just here with open empty hands, and an intuition that a new outer purpose will be placed in them … ?

p.s. I love how I am juxtaposing God/Course in Miracles and PUAs in this blog. This is awesome! But if you saw all the connections I see between them, you wouldn’t be surprised at all :-)

Also, for someone who has decided I’m done with sex forever, I am being tested right now major big time. Let’s just say “natural game” and leave it at that. God certainly does have a sense of humor. All part of the fun, I suppose.

Sending you all love and peace. G’nite :-)

  1. Hmmm. Doesn’t that seem a little black and white to you?

    If you think that getting married and having kids will *make* you happy – well sure, that’s not true. NOT having kids or getting married won’t necessarily get you any closer to understanding Source either though.

    If you understand where happiness comes from – from Source – then having kids and getting married become expressions of that happiness. Anything you want to do in your life, from a natural desire or affinity, becomes an expression of that joy. Not a means to get joy, but an expression of it. So if those things don’t appeal to you then sure, don’t do them. But if they do, I don’t think they are just “ego” things. The idea that you “need” them, or are “incomplete without them – sure I can see that as attachment that would bring pain. But the things themselves, when done in a spirit of joy – marriage and kids – that’s the stuff of life, many people enjoy them. So what’s wrong with that?

    I hope you don’t mind me challenging you a bit on these things. =) I find the Course has some good stuff, but it seems to oversimplify things a lot or make them black and white. To me, that black and white stuff is a sign of ego, not of egolessness. Real life, the Tao, Source, the multiplicitous Divinity of Life – it’s never black and white. Joy comes in so many shades, so many flavors. The journey is finding which ones light you up, and giving yourself to that thata aliveness, that expression of Divine joy.

  2. oh yes, God certainly has a sense of humor — quite wicked and silly at times. :-)
