When you begin your spiritual awakening journey towards ascending to the higher 5th dimension level of consciousness, your perception about the world starts to change.
It can go slow or it can go fast. It all depends on your circumstances as everyone is different. Mine was slow for about a year. Then once I met my twin flame last year, the process went full speed ahead and it was very overwhelming.
Today, after many months of confusion, wondering why everything became so meaningless and dull or black and white, a light bulb moment hit me not once, but twice today.
The first was when I was about to head to work after picking up some tacos from Jack in the Box. I randomly thought about knowing where you belong in the world, as I’ll blog about shortly. The other was 5 minutes ago at Barnes and Noble after picking up the book, Why Buddhism is True by Robert Wright and randomly flipping through the chapters.
I had seen this book at another Barnes and Noble the other day and it just popped out at me. Unfortunately, I didn’t really get a chance to take a look at it then. Today, I did and I’m really, REALLY glad I did.
As I flipped through the chapters, one chapter in particular grabbed my attention, “The Upside of Emptiness”. As I read it, everything that I was once confused about, started to make sense. I won’t go into details about this chapter as I feel you should read it yourself. However, it discusses why many things in life become meaningless and why it’s a good thing.
Once I read it, I instantly thought about the girl in the red dress from the movie Schindler’s List.
The movie is all in black and white, except the little girl in the red dress. This is because she represents something meaningful to Schindler: innocence. Amidst the chaos of what’s going on in the concentration camps, Schindler was able to spot her right away. And we could see that, as she was the only person shown in color.
So after thinking about this, I realized why things became so dull and meaningless after I met my twin flame: I’m now at the point on this journey where I can start to catch everything in life that show up in “red” for me, metaphorically, if you will. These things are the things that truly resonate with me and who I am. So far, I’ve found a few, and I’ve blogged about them. I know there’s many more out there, and I’ll know when it comes around. And even though I still feel everything is connected, there are just certain things in life that we are deeply connected with.
Before I started the spiritual awakening process, I was just like most people where everything pretty much meant the same and you really didn’t think much of anything because that deep feeling of emptiness and dullness in life didn’t show up yet. It’s like watching Schindler’s List in color. If it was all in color, the girl in the red dress would not stand out and it would be hard to catch her, wouldn’t you agree?
Our perception of the movie would be so much different if we were actually watching it in color than if it was in black and white. When you watch it in black and white, you recognize what’s meaningful. And that’s how I feel about life once your spiritual awakening journey has started.
What was all once in color, now turns to black and white, and then you begin your journey in life towards finding everything meaningful, which will only show up for you in “red”.
