A Brief Reflection on Why One Does The Work
When doing this work, it is important to move through the victim-rescuer-martyr-saviour complex.
There´s always work that one can do, but it is wise to always ask whether you create a cycle of dependency in doing so.
And that is not always one-sided. Sometimes the service provider gets off on a different kind of high: of wanting to be needed, of knowing self-worth and value only through the eyes of another. This is a different kind of energetic trap and it postures itself so closely to the vibration of service and love.
When I began my pilgrimage to the US, I knew it was going to be a challenge. This has not been a joyride. There are extremely potent energies here that I have to work with on a daily basis – as of course do those who live here.
But things tend to focus on the outsider when those living in the cauldron have become too acclimatized to the bubbling heat. Or have even begun to equate the heat with some sense of spiritual attainment.
What has become apparent to me is the greater need to think through where, when, how and why I choose to invest my energy. And to learn to walk away from situations that are not mine to fix – unless I wanted to get off on the ´pedestal´ high.
When I have expressed as such to some of the people I meet, I get instantly projected on as being afraid, or ´lucky enough to escape´. That is BS, but also not mine to take on board.
I have worked in some incredibly volatile places on the planet – in isolation. But am deeply cognizant of the fact that major spiritual work comes when an invitation is clearly issued. By the land itself – and when it is ready and able to facilitated.
That´s not a call that anyone can make for me. And I have to purely trust my own intuition in making it.
My next stop is New York City. I´ll be heading back to the West Coast later in my trip.
