We have all had those days when we sit, ponder, and take stock. When time literally stands still for us and it is in those moments that we get to deeply feel the graciousness of life as if it has not been felt before.
I had one such deep, ‘taking stock’ moment the other day on a beautiful London morning, reflecting on where I had come from and everything that I had come to within myself, the paths that I had walked and the choices I have made.
We all have been there – embroiled and enmeshed in life, constantly juggling, struggling, wiggling and more often than not whinging our way through life’s roads.
In fact, as I pondered and watched life pass me by outside the window of my neighborhood coffee shop in the early hours of the morning, I could feel and sense the busy-ness and the heaviness of how everyone starts their morning: already weary, fatigued, bone-tired and yet trudging along, forcing themselves to get out there. This is how it starts for most of humanity, anywhere and everywhere across the world.
How sad it is then that we have lost our inner essence, our flow. We have chosen to disconnect from our ‘mojo’, that inner joy that emanates all day long leaving us feeling bouncy and light on our path, if only we would allow it.
It always made me wonder why we as a human race are not choosing this, and instead, are so rushed, so exhausted and so lost.
For me, as I felt deeply that morning, I could sense how far I had come in terms of being responsible – responsible not just for myself, my behaviours, my patterns, and my hurts, but also responsible for how I reflect that responsibility back to the rest of humanity, who may yet struggle to walk their true path.
A path, that I have been shown in recent times, by those who have chosen to walk it.
A path that allows me to unfold at my own pace and holds me in grace with each step.
A path that is making me more and more aware with each moment.
A path that has made me deeply, consciously aware of the places I come from, the many, many lives I have lived before, the wisdom that I carry, and the myriad of beautiful experiences that are my learnings.
A path that does not judge me and yet will take into account every choice I make. This path is ‘The path of Energetic Responsibility.’
And most amongst us would scratch our heads wondering what is Energetic Responsibility? Energetic Responsibility from what I have now come to understand is simple and yet so very magical. How I think, speak, walk and talk has an effect on my immediate surroundings and even beyond that, and this is something that opened my eyes to a far larger view of the world than the previously narrow view, which was mostly focused on the self.
It’s like we know it but we choose to not be aware of it because it feels like too much for us to handle. The truth of it all is not out there, but watching us silently from deep within the recesses of our core. A place within; where we know we are all deeply, intrinsically connected, just as the stars and the planets and the galaxies form a part of the whole in the skies up above.
So it’s definitely no coincidence that I ‘chanced’ upon becoming aware of my true path – I was always meant to sooner, or later, just like the rest of us who have, or will, at some point in time do the same.
But for me it was like I have been preparing all my life to get here; something deep inside of me was always pulsing, magnetically pulling me towards this truth no matter how much or how far I ran from that feeling.
E=MC2 is an equation that always grabbed me as a young physics student. I always felt the connection of that universal equation; that connection that Einstein himself had felt.
I immersed myself in reading about quantum physics, metaphysics, enjoying the science fiction stories of Isaac Asimov, Star Wars and Star Trek, the fantasy trips in my head about spaceships and what kind of energy powered them, life on other planets, the martial arts and how ancient masters tapped into energy. All of it!
The word ‘energy’ always turned me ON!
I always felt that the Equation E=MC2 was an ‘Equation that Equalises All of Life’, and this was confirmed when I came upon Serge Benhayon’s quote: “Everything is Energy; therefore Everything is because of Energy!” It was powerful to just feel into those words, the vastness that it expands us into.
If everything is energy then why do we choose to not understand it or talk about it in our daily conversations?
I now have chosen to understand that everything is energy and I now choose to talk about it; I choose to be aware at each step and with each breath as a result of having met Serge Benhayon.
Meeting him was like meeting the highest reflection of myself in this lifetime, it brought home the understanding that this path of energetic responsibility is not something that I can dilly dally with, flirt with, have an affair with or delay anymore.
I knew it was time to re-commit my entire being-ness deeply to this path. It was time to journey back to live what is true. Little did I know that I would be challenged in ways that I had never known. Walking this path would bring out the stuff that I had been carrying all the more – the angst, the pain, and the arrogance, like some ‘badge of honour’.
It felt like I was loaded and heavy and my deep, inner, tender essence had been covered for eons, the spark of which I had only glimpsed in moments through my present life.
I was now able to understand how I had been living a lie up until that point and how I had been offered a much truer and freer way of being.
My understanding of how energetic responsibility affects my life’s choices has been life changing for me. This path that I am now on keeps teaching and reflecting unto me the illusionary and fleeting nature of all life and yet reveals the magic of it all as it unfolds, which I now know is far beyond any material riches that I may ever have aspired to.
This path of being energetically responsible is beyond any emotional excitement I felt with any of the extreme adventure sports that I indulged in. It offers a strong steadiness that I always knew was laying within, waiting for me to come back to. It’s as if for the first time ever, All of MY Awareness is coming alive in my body with each choice I am making.
“We would be wise to know that the first evolutionary peak that humanity is returning to is awareness, and in particular, one of energetic awareness. We will find, or in-truth rediscover, our extraordinary intelligence when we begin to use our whole body as the place where our mind is.” (Chapter 10, page 291)
Thus this lesson, this path for me, is not only for this life, it’s beyond life and yet it keeps showing me how to stay committed to life.
And guess what? With this commitment comes the connection to the divine order that moves us all, the order that moves the universe in its rhythmic and loving pulse that also flows through me as I tread lovingly and gently each moment I am on this path.
And when I falter and slip, when I am challenged, I understand it’s not about perfection, it’s about unfolding, and so I am learning to allow, appreciate, and accept everything that comes with my choices. This in turn accelerates me towards where I was always meant to be.
And so has begun the deep, humbling lesson of learning to live with Energetic Responsibility…
In deep gratitude always to Serge Benhayon who has been my mentor, my elder brother, my very old friend and who has reflected pure divinity at all times. And the gorgeous Sara Williams for assisting in chipping away my falsities to reach the fiery diamond within through those amazingly powerful healing sessions and interactions.
