Ego Self-Importance vs Impeccability

woman-1566154_1280

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!

Needy Child vs Self-Actualization

alone-2666433_1280

Picking up the 6th dark arrow means we have already picked up the 1st dark arrow of attachments, the 2nd dark arrow of dependencies, the 3rd dark arrow of judgements, the 4th dark arrow of comparisons, and the 5th dark arrow of Expectations. We have created needs that are not based in reality, becoming dependent on them for short-term pleasure and long-term pain. We judge our self, life and others so we feel okay, and have found others that are “like” us so we can put down those who are “not like” us. Our delusions about these non-existent “needs” place us in the center of expectations, reliving the past and all of the other “needs” that were not met and projecting to the future, convinced that those needs will not be met either. Sounds pretty bleak!

The 6th arrow on this dark side is the Needy Child Syndrome.  This is the absolute need for love, recognition, acceptance, security, and support from others as a way to define and identify our self.  This is the place where we are constantly looking outside ourselves to feel okay.  This is acceptable as a child who cannot meet their own needs.  But as adults, it becomes total self-indulgence.

The 6th Light Arrow is Self-Actualization.  When we choose this arrow from our quiver, we say yes to a new concept of self-respect.  We become successful because we are having fun and finding pleasure doing exactly what we want, our heart’s desire.  We dream big and bring them to reality through our Self-Actualization!

By choosing the 6th light arrow of self-actualization, we are able to break the needy child syndrome dark arrow.  Our identity is no longer dependent on an absolute need for love, recognition, acceptance, security and support from others as a way to define ourselves.  Choosing pleasure, having fun, doing what we enjoy, and being successful provides us with a concept of self-respect.  We discern and put energy into desires and actions, behaviors and thoughts that bring us pleasure, knowledge, and moments that transcend time.  We feel, sense and know our interconnectedness to all of life.

All life consists and emanates Chuluaqui-Quodoushka energy, the perfect balance of female-male energy, the inhalation and exhalation.  Through the use of this energy in our everyday life, we gain Total and Full Balance of Energy.  Our spiritual-sexual eros, that is our desire to live, expresses itself.

Expectations vs Self-Love

facebook-1084449_1280

At this point, attachments have been created to people and things that aren’t really needs.  Instead of seeing reality as it is, we form dependencies to justify our choice of short-term pleasure, long-term pain cycle.  We then judge, self, life, and others so we feel okay, forming strong group identities through comparisons to support our judgments and separations.

The fifth dark arrow we pull from the quiver is Expectations.  At this point, we are caught in delusions because we fade back to the past reliving all the past needs that were not met.  Or, we project into the future with how our future needs will not be met either.  With so much time and energy spent in the past and future, we miss out of all the beauty that is happening right now, in the present moment.

Did you know that no matter what we do, how we act, or what we say, there are five human responses to any action?   Some people are going to love us, some will hate us, others may like or dislike us, and some are going not going to even care (be in neutrality).  When we base our actions on trying to obtain a like or love response, we pick up the dark arrow of expectations.

To break this dark arrow, all we have to do is pick up the Light Arrow of Self-Love.  When we love ourselves, we develop self-confidence in who we are, what we do, and what we say to the extent that any response we receive from others will not initiate our pretender voices, disrupt our balance, or propel us to pick up the dark arrows again.  With Self-Love, we develop and maintain a strong commander voice that reminds us of our beauty, strength, wisdom, shining and all our other amazing aspects!

The Rainbow Arrow of Gaining Full and Open Heart-to-Heart Communication is gifted to us when we persistently select the Light Arrow of Self-Love.  Self-Love helps us to embody self-confidence, where we understand that we may receive any one of the five perceptions (love, like, neutrality, dislike, or hate) with any action we make. With self-confidence, we look to meet our own desires in the present moment, as opposed to being caught in the delusions of needs not met by others in the past or the future.

Aligning with all forms of all things, all that breathes calls to us to wake up to who we truly are in our true nature spirit personality. Our healing energy of self, our “being-ness” touches our self, life, and others.  Understanding that all matter is us allows us to communicate with Spirit.

Comparison vs Self-Pleasure

us-1767691_1280

With the first three dark arrows of Attachments, Dependencies, and Judgments in play, the fourth dark arrow in the quiver is Comparison.  Separating ourselves from self, life and others, we look for connection through group identity.  The “I am better (smarter, richer, etc.) than you” becomes “We (my group) are better (smarter, richer, etc.) than them.”  Being at the effect of time, space, and others, we need support systems to verify our judgments and separations are valid.

Comparisons is the place where our group identity becomes our support system that verifies and validates our judgments and separation.  Our judgments and separation feels like it is from “them”, those who are not like us, believe in the same way, or have the same values.  But truly, this dark arrow is picked up because we judge and separate from our self, then others and life.

Picking up the Light Arrow of Self-Pleasure breaks the dark arrow of comparisons.  The foundation for this arrow is being self-aware, finding the value and self-worth within so that you can appreciate yourself and increase your self-esteem, knowing that this creates self-acceptance.  Our circle of self is so strong that we no longer need an external group identity support system to validate our judgments and separations.  Instead, our hearts are open because we have opted to experience the pleasure of self for the shear sake of pleasure!

When we pick up the 4th light arrow, we say YES to loving our self for the sheer pleasure of doing so.  Our hearts open and we connect to self, life, others and Spirit.  The gift from the Universe is the 4th Rainbow Arrow where we gain wisdom, alignment, balance and harmonic resonance through the alignment with all forms of all things.  Logic, knowledge and wisdom can only be received by a flexible, open free-thinking mind whose intent is to be in balance and harmony with all the Worlds of Grandmother Earth.

Judgments vs Self-Acceptance

communication-1991854_1280

Looking back to the first dark arrow, when we claim to NEED something or someone once our basic reality needs are met, we opt for pain rather than pleasure, shooting the dark arrow of Attachment. Staying at the effect and in reaction, choosing pain over pleasure, the second arrow we pick up is Dependencies.

Judgments is the third dark arrow. These are the moments when our ego puts others down in order to feel okay, creating strong separation.  Our ego self-importance judges others so we can feel bigger, better, stronger or more than those around us.  There are also times when feel smaller, weaker, worse or less than.  We turn the judgment on ourselves, immersing ourselves in self-pity.

Where are the moments when these first three arrows of attachments, dependencies, and judgments appear in your life?  Are there specific situations?  Can you identify the feelings or thoughts that are present just moments before picking up these arrows?

Remember, similar to the dark arrows, picking up the light arrows build on each other.  We cannot pick up the second arrow without picking up the first one.  And by the time we pick up the seventh Light arrow, we have picked up the other six before it.

The 3rd Light Arrow, which builds on having self-awareness and self-appreciation, is Self-Acceptance.  Choosing Self-Acceptance opens the door for our self-esteem to grow.  It allows us to ask ourselves at any moment or in any situation whether we did or are doing the best we can do based on what we knew/know.

Remember the 3rd dark arrow is judgments.  Often times we look backwards in time and judge our behavior or performance based on what we now know.   Or we judge and put others down so we can feel better.

Knowing deep within yourself that you have done the best you could, given what you knew at the time, provides a moment to take a deep breath, silence the internal pretender voices, and break the pattern of judging self, life, and others.

Self-acceptance, the 3rd Light Arrow, supports us in connecting to our self-worth and value, which then breaks the strong separation the 3rd dark arrow of judgments causes.  Through the Give-Away of our beauty to self, life and others without qualifications, we gain Trust and Innocence.

Trust is knowing there is an absolute interconnection and interreliability between one form of one thing and all forms of all things.  Trust us also knowing there is something greater than we are or that we know.  Innocence is being within the center of your own essence, standing in the center of our own circle of power, and simply being who we are fully alive in our senses. Trust and Innocence are the bottom two points of a triangle that has Perfection (walking your talk) at its apex.
