A New Way to Think and Live With Power

When we reach the unbearable place within us, the one that contains our pain, we try to run away as fast as we can. We have been running from this part of ourselves for all of our lives. It's the place our Guides told us not to stay very long because it would make us feel depressed.

For as long as we can remember, we have always been afraid of this hidden place within our minds. And on each visit, we add another layer of toxicity to trick ourselves into believing we have moved on; far away from our feelings of intense pain and suffering.  .

Many of us believe that when we quickly leave our pain, then it no longer exists in our lives. We don't believe it's still with us as we move on into new relationships and experiences . And, after awhile, we convince ourselves that we have overcome the pain. It's behind us.

Nevertheless, every chance we get, we continue inexorably to run away from our pain. And we're always reminded that regardless of how many times we move forward, this place in us reminds us that we can never fully escape from our toxicity.  Furthermore, our toxicity is always lurking in the darkness of the cul-de-sac in our minds.

Similarly, we have been taught by others to never tarry too long with feeling our pain. They taught us not to feel our anger, to submerge our feelings in the notion of moving on and not dwelling on the beliefs and values responsible for our anger.

Meanwhile, during those moments when we were quarreling with our siblings by slinging verbal darts into them, our parents intervened and told us to hug and make-up. This was the beginning of the way we would handle our feelings from disagreements throughout our lives.

For us to overcome our fears of facing how we feel during painful moments in our lives, we must discover a new perspective on power. This new power will  provide us with the clarity to unlearn what others have taught us about addressing our feelings.

Many of us don't know how to sit, feel, and understand our pain. We have practiced the principles of toxicity for so long that we don't dare trust ourselves. Yet at some point, we have to admit to ourselves that what we feel is our pain. It belongs exclusively to us. 

Nevertheless, when we take the time to sit and feel our pain, we inevitably discover the power to conquer the pain. This is the moment we enter into the unlearning process, which will lead us to the Enlightenism that exists beyond the pain.

Enlightenism is the unconditioned consciousness in us that is colorless, faceless, and formless. It's the power in you that's greater than your current awareness-of-being powerless.

Some of us have discovered that Enlightenism is a  new way to think and live with power. We found that Enlightenism exists at the end of our work on unlearning toxicity. In other words, you become one with your Enlightenism only after you free yourself from toxicity.

For us to transmute toxicity into Enlightenism, we must accept that we have the power to create a new way to think and live.
