Holding all six dark arrows in time and space (no matter what time it is or what space you’re in), experiencing the tonal (material) enemies of fear, anger, depression and stress, and the nagual (spiritual) enemies of fear, clarity, power, old age and death, we pick up the 7th dark arrow of Ego Self-Importance. The pretense you might hear when this arrow is chosen is, “It’s my way or the highway.” “I would never/always do that.” “It’s my world and you will just have to find a way to live in it.”
Given that the world does not simply work this way, our buttons are constantly being pushed by the tyrants of life:
- the weather – it’s too hot, it’s too cold, why is it raining today?, the wind is messing up my hair….
- time – there’s not enough time, too much time, I’m late, they’re late, you’re wasting my time…
- inner dialogue – [insert the dark voices inside your head here]
- other people – family, loved ones, friends, bosses, employees, children, store clerks, and the list goes on…
- situations – traffic, long lines, road construction, the dog peed on the carpet (again!), my team loss the Super Bowl, and so on…
There is no doubt that by looking outside yourself for the world and its occupants to comply with meeting your every need, you will be tyranted by life, you will have every button pushed. How can life be any different when you are constantly at the effect and in reaction?
BUT WAIT! Remember that when something happens, WE CHOOSE OUR RESPONSE. This choice becomes our action and colors our perception of what continues to happen. The 7 Light Arrows are ours for the choosing…
Imagine what your life would be like with self-awareness, self-appreciation, self-acceptance, self-pleasure, self-love, and self-actualization? With these six light arrows in place, picking up the 7th Light Arrow of Impeccability provides us with a concept of self-realization.
Selecting this arrow breaks the 7th dark arrow of Ego Self-Importance, that place where our buttons are pushed by the tyrants of life and we are caught in self-destructive patterns.
Picking up Impeccability takes us to the place inside ourselves where we know Warrior’s Freedom. Here, we are never at the effect of anyone or anything, anywhere, anytime, in any way. We choose to not take ourselves or life too seriously. And we always follow the Maximum Efficiency with Minimum Effort law, which “simply put, this Law teaches us that we have choice and that our energy resource intake/expenditure dance can be choreographed by us in such a way that we are able to live a relaxed and focused life with enough fuel to do everything we need/want/desire to do!”
The 7 Light Arrows center us in our Dharma Circle, creating productive, pro-creative patterns so we can be At Cause.
Like the light and dark arrows, the Rainbow Arrows build on one another. Here at the 7th Rainbow Arrow, we have made the choice to pick up the light arrows of self-awareness, self-appreciation, self-acceptance, self-pleasure, self-love, self-actualization, and impeccability. In doing this, the dark arrows of attachments, dependencies, judgments, comparisons, expectations, the needy child syndrome, and ego self-importance have been broken. The Rainbow Arrows that are now in our quiver are the gaining of Illumination, Introspection, Trust & Innocence, Wisdom, Alignment, Balance, harmonic Resonance, and Full & Open Heart-to-Heart Communication.
The Gain of Abundance and Prosperity in our Personal Dream, our day to day life, is gifted to us as the 7th Rainbow Arrow. We have the energy and drive to open to our Sacred Dream, our desire for enlightenment. We give our beauty and shining to the Collective Planetary Dream, and the Collective begins to feed your Personal Dream.
Your Dream is Awake!
