Life Is Like A Box of Chocolates – A Buffet of Choices
Perhaps for many, one of the most memorable lines in Forest Gump was when the lead character said, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” If we park aside the fact that the saying suggests we are not in charge of our own choices, therefore “you never know what you’re gonna get” – which of course is not true – what we are left with at this stage is a proposition that no matter which chocolate is picked, we still end up with chocolate, just a different kind.
One may draw a praline, a truffle, a caramel delight or a coconut nougat, however, is it not still a chocolate, still made up of cocoa, sugar, often milk, and then just a varying flavour to differentiate it from the pieces that lay beside it?
Enlarging this and taking it into life can support us to see what is truly occurring in our day to day lives on a micro scale, and during our lifespan on a macro scale. On this planet of ours we have so many options and choices to pick from, what with work and studies, family and friends, hobbies and interests, music and books, TV shows and films, foods and drinks, cars and bikes, phones and computers, where we live, all the way down to colour of bedsheets, material of our desks and the frame for our favourite mantelpiece picture – to name but a few.
When one considers all the different options within these categories and then all the possible combinations between them, there need be no mathematician to declare that the sum is far vaster than what can be comprehended.
… Sounds like a big box of chocolates!
So, and for all intents and purposes, we have a plentiful buffet of choices in life to oblige and cater to, but what if that entire smorgasbord is all from one and the same supplier… the stockist that never ceases to provide and loves nothing more than keeping us as being less than who we are, i.e. in the blissful ignorance of deceiving ourselves to be no more than mere physical human beings and only recognising what our five physical senses perceive whilst negating so much more beyond the physical realm that the body feels and knows.
If Everything is Energy, then – Energy must Matter
In the world of mathematics, it is common to use assumptions to formulate a proof of method or formula, so, for a moment, the reader is asked to consider and perhaps even assume, that there is more to life than what we can see.
If a little introductory proof is needed, Einstein did lay the formula e = mc² before us, and in doing so showed the world that everything indeed is made up of energy. The “e” itself standing for ‘energy,’ the “m” standing for ‘mass,’ which when broken down into its subatomic levels is found to be made up of what are known as ‘quarks.’ These quarks are not something that we can see and observe but something that behaves in a particular manner, hence, the “m” too ultimately stands for ‘energy,’ specifically in movement. The “c” stands for the speed of light, which when broken down mathematically means the speed of particles – again, ultimately ‘energy.’
After this small digression, where do we stand? At the point of consideration that everything is energy.
The word every-thing here should not be taken lightly.
When observing the world and our society within it – be that on the news, in the paper, talking to a colleague or watching events first hand occur before us – we tend to predominantly focus on what our eyes can see, and our ears can hear. We look at someone driving a car and notice the speed perhaps, the driving style, the noise of the engine etc. We look at someone committing a crime and see a physical body carrying out a physical act that has physical consequences. Even to the smallest example of when we watch someone making a cup of tea and we see hot liquid being poured into a solid cup and can then smell the leaves diffusing in the tea bag.
With our newfound understanding of ‘everything is energy,’ we could say that behind each of the above examples there is actually much more at play than the mundaneness (or not so in the case of a crime scene) of the physical behaviour.
But what exactly does it mean to say that there is energy behind these actions – in fact behind Every action?
Ageless Wisdom Philosopher Serge Benhayon… on Energy
To answer this question, let’s introduce a quote by a sagacious philosopher and modern-day presenter of the Ageless Wisdom, Serge Benhayon, who expanded and in that complemented Einstein’s e = mc² and said; “Everything is energy, and therefore, everything is because of energy” [Serge Benhayon, 1999] (1). Let us analyse this for a moment.
What Serge has touched upon here is that if indeed everything is first and foremost energy, which it is, then the energy exists way before the physical action – or outplay that we observe with our eyes – takes place. Hence, and consequently, everything we then see and experience in physicality actually has energetic roots, which determine what occurs before, during and after it plays out.
This offers many revelations on our living ways as presented by Serge Benhayon such as: nothing is an accident, everything matters and nothing is nothing; that we are responsible first and foremost for the energetic root we draw our action from rather than what the action looks or sounds like; and that we currently live in the consciousness of a 3-dimensional world which is actually multi-dimensional, yet we remain blissfully ignorant to that fact.
That said, whilst these revelations offer us permission to understand and be aware of these facts, it cannot be claimed that we are completely ignorant to the fact that in regard to life there is, to quote the common phrase, “more to it than meets the eye.” These revelations offered by a combination of what Einstein and Serge have shared allow us to see beyond the three dimensions we have become so comfortable with and have made a gospel out of using such a contracted and limited version of life.
There are plenty of examples where we notice and will even speak about the fact that we can feel and sense what is beyond physical occurrence. Here a few:
Systematic Evolution OR Deliberate Creation
So perhaps here is a good place to recap what has been presented thus far:
Back to Gump’s box of chocolates mentioned at the start of this piece, and its relevance to life.
We have a box of chocolates and each is different, yet, essentially all are the same – a combination of comfort and the stimulating substance we have come to term, chocolate. So, what if the many actions, movements and choices we have and make in life are also just varying ‘flavours’ of the very same energetic root?
There is much in this world that we have created to suit our multitude of lifestyles where we have given ourselves over to our wants and desires, and in that we have become arrogant, as well as ignorant of the awareness of what would / would not actually serve us as a society, and from this self-obsessed stance we have created a world overflowing with all our varying flavours of chocolates where we can indulge at a moment’s notice.
We get very excited about the ‘box’ as we become so enticed and seduced by the multitude of flavours it offers. We do not pay attention to the limits of its walls, nor how they contain, contract and limit the expression of who we are. In other words, we luxuriate in our own creation rather than seek and embrace what has been on offer since time immemorial in inexhaustible quantities from the space we call the Universe.
As imbecilic as it may sound (and that it surely is), we have created a society where we can get non-stop chocolate for our entire existence.
It should be noted here that it is not only the delusions of grandeur that come with money, fame, fortune etc. that give us the indulgence we so desperately seek, it is also the rock bottom of clinical depression, drug addiction and everything in-between that we thrive and find relief in – as strange as that is from a mere human perspective whereby we would assume that avoiding any suffering would be the logical and sought-after choice. Said simply: the chocolate you may despise is another’s favourite.
The word ‘creation’ has been emphasised specifically in the last two paragraphs as it is a necessary and sobering point to make. If all our actions and movements come from a quality of energy first and we are the ones who are responsible for determining that, then surely we are responsible, and therefore accountable for the life we then end up walking. Said in much simpler terms by Serge Benhayon – “We are the creators of all that we experience” (2).
The Book of Human Life – The Perfect Guide to Creation
We have indeed each written our own book of human life – Our Guide to Creation. And they are perfect. Or as perfect as it gets. Collectively we have even created a Creation Encyclopaedia, a vast ocean of tips, props and how-to’s to keep ourselves circulating in this energetically lesser way of being, nonetheless, the one we are attracted to like flies to faeces.
The word perfect is here not used to promote or glorify the guide to creation – far from it, for the guide that we have created is a major contaminator of the space this Universe of ours holds (talking of Global warming!) – but rather the purpose is to illuminate the fact that we are the very masters of what we have created, the engineers of a do-it-yourself kind of method for every conceivable situation we encounter within creation to keep us immersed in the spinning (vicious, too) cycle of the very same creation. Indeed, we are that chef who has cooked up the overly sour inedible soup and now has to eat it.
The question begs – Why? Why have we created this sphere of life where we are miserable, happy, rich, poor, lonely or popular (all terms very relative and used loosely), yet all the while avoiding the fact that naturally we are much, much grander and far wiser?
When we look at all we have touched on so far, the only possible answer that remains feasible is arrogance filled – “Because we can.” We have created all our chocolates that we can stuff ourselves with as much as we like… to all appearances without any repercussions. And we enjoy the ‘chocolates’ twice over, not only because of the comfort they provide but also because we are the chocolatier!
We had the creating hand in something we find delicious. Is there anything more exciting than creating something yourself? Something you can pride your existence on? Something you can champion as ‘advancing’ and ‘benefitting’ society? We have put ourselves in a box and filled it with treats that gratify our hunger, and this not only distracts us from feeling and seeing the everything we have cut ourselves off from, this also feeds the denial that keeps the whole charade going in its perpetual circular motion.
There’s More to Life than Being a Human
And most detrimental of all, our creations and the guide we use to navigate our way around this involutionary trajectory keeps us well away from ever seeing and realising the full scope of multidimensionality we originate from.
But this comes with a price – an eternal unsettlement – as deep down we cannot escape the knowing that we have left behind the fullness of who we are and are now living as just a mere fragment of that glory, hence the incessant need to make up for the loss by creating a substitute we heavily invest in to numb the unbearable pain and thereby taking pride in our ‘power of creation,’ ignoring the fact that ‘our creation’ is flawed and corrupt and can never be of the pristine universal harmony and perfection that makes the multidimensionality we live in.
Science on its own can tell us a lot… certainly not everything, but a lot. And science has most definitely shown us that we are a great deal grander than the 3-dimensional human existence we have come to create and champion.
First and foremost, at a subatomic (really small) level we are made up of particles. These particles make up the protons and neutrons that are the foundation of the atom and therefore our very existence in this plane of life. To give an example of the proportion of an atom’s make-up, if the nucleus (the very centre) of the atom was enlarged to be the size of a marble, the electrons would be at the perimeter a football field away – over 100 metres!
That gives a LOT of empty space in the middle.
So when we shrink that back down and arrange all these atoms to resemble a human being, we can see that we are mostly made up of space, and very few parts mass. What this means on an even more technical level is that as a ‘solid’ human being, we actually don’t interact with anything on a physical level. The fact that there is so much space (filled with energy) between the nucleus and the outer electrons means that if we are sitting on a chair for example, we are actually not touching it but are hovering above it ever so slightly – the only thing keeping us from merging with the chair being the magnetic repulsion from the electrons in each object/person, yet, we feel the pressure and texture of the chair against our body. If there was ever proof needed that we exchange and interchange with each other and with objects on an energetic level, then here it lays just before you.
On top of the vast amount of space within us, it is also worth touching on the particles that fundamentally make up the very little relative mass we contain.
Particles are not stagnant. They are constantly moving, vibrating, interchanging and exchanging. On a cellular level the human body entirely replaces itself every 7 years, so on a particle level we could confidently say that the entire human body completely replaces itself far quicker than this if we consider that every time we breathe in and out, let alone when we touch objects, swim, walk, run, etc., we are actually taking in and releasing particles.
So with all that, which may be a reminder or refresher for some or completely new knowledge to others, we can see that we live in a world of energy, particles and the physical realm of creation, which we have designed to enthral and arrogantly comfort us in our existence.
An interesting point to ponder at this moment: we can identify ourselves by name and behaviour and individualise ourselves, but in truth and in essence, we are largely made up of space, and this space does not have colour, creed or religion to differentiate itself from another bit of space, and the little mass we can claim we have is changing so frequently that we do not get a chance to retain any, and certainly could not identify ourselves with a certain set of particles.
What Are We & Where Do We Come From?
So, what actually are we? Vehicles of space and energy, which are making life a whole lot denser than it truly is.
These vehicles of space, which are no different to the stars in the night sky, are made from the same space and particles they are, just arranged differently.
In a nutshell, where do we come from?
And now we come back to planet Earth, where we human beings, who are no different to the grandness of the stars, live lives filled with human activities, human interactions, human problems and human dramas. It takes no Sherlock Holmes or Poirot to deduce that something here in this simple mathematical equation is just not right.
War, destruction, death, corruption, murder, rape, torture, suicide, female genital mutilation, starvation, drug abuse, caffeine reliance, sugar addiction, global obesity, bulimia, cancer, diabetes, dementia, mental health disorders, defamation, hate, bitterness, resentment, jealousy, rage, frustration, dishonesty, lack of self-worth, self-flagellation, low confidence and arrogant compensation just to name a few, all run rampant in our sphere of life and are an inescapable part of the selection in our chocolate box… And that – that is the existence we wish to champion?
Call it naïve or utopian if you wish, but looking up at the stars, we have a divine existence constantly reflecting to us where we originate from, what we are capable of and what one day, we shall return to.
So dear readers, the time is upon us. Let us all put down our calamitous guides to creation. Let us relinquish ourselves of all our tried and tested, tired methods of navigating ourselves through life merely as humans. It is time for us to leave behind the box altogether. Let’s allow the stars to guide us onward and upward and let us give permission to our particles to show us the way.
Life is rich beyond measure when we don’t play mere human.

It is a wise man or woman, who always bears this in their awareness, ‘ if indeed everything is first and foremost energy, which it is, then the energy exists way before the physical action – or outplay that we observe with our eyes – takes place. Hence, and consequently, everything we then see and experience in physicality actually has energetic roots, which determine what occurs before, during and after it plays out.’
I was talking to a friend recently about the violence in the USA and they said but your choosing the same energy only your flavour is different. Which is exactly what you are referring to in your blog Michael
‘One may draw a praline, a truffle, a caramel delight or a coconut nougat, however, is it not still a chocolate, still made up of cocoa, sugar, often milk, and then just a varying flavour to differentiate it from the pieces that lay beside it? ‘
And is this how we are continually fooled? We think we think and I think I’m smart but I’m not smart at all just being used by an energy that is playing with me. There’s a payoff happening, I think I think and while that thought is given to me the energy that gives me the thought is using my natural energy somewhere else entirely.
We have collectively made life into a box of chocolates where we think we are making different choices but are just choosing a different flavor of the same chocolate. This is the huge lie we have perpetrated for ourselves so that we stay imprisoned in the lie we have made. We know exactly the game we are playing because we made the game and the rules. There is a part of us that just doesn’t care because it knows it is immortal and therefore can play as many games as it likes while it resides in a human body, which it can trash in an instant that we then call suicide.
We may think we can make many different choices but there is the choice to be love or not.
It wasn’t until I met Serge Benhayon and took part in the workshops and presentations on offer that I realised I had been sleep walking through life. I had looked on life purely from the physicality of it my senses were dulled to anything else, this I believe is the blissful ignorance that I shook myself out of.
We are always presented with choices mine was to stay asleep or wake up to the fact that there is much more to life than we care to admit or even realise. For me coming across the presentation and workshops of Serge Benhayon were the best things to happen to me as I have woken myself up from the self imposed stupor I had been living in. I can say from my experience that living in a stupor and being aware of life are worlds apart.
We always have a choice of which quality to input and emanate from our lives.
When we make a decision, it becomes a branch; left, right, up, down, true or false. How long does it take to become a massive tree with all of these branches and what shape has it taken?
I like the analogy you make Steve to take this topic deeper when we make the choice of what energy we are going to align to, if we chose the negative energy it may seemingly give us what we are seeking comfort but that negative energy also uses us in a way that we have no control over. What if that negative energy then controls our bodies so that it can do whatever it likes as the pay back. The pay back can be abuse towards us or another, rape, murder, what then?
There are consequences from our every choice, so how important is our state of being when we make a choice.
Life is what you make it – chocolates or not – it’s our choices, we made this.
Life is far richer when I explore the energetic factors of it. Eventually every chocolate tastes the same.
“Life is rich beyond measure when we don’t play mere human.” Wise words Michael. Your blog is a wake up call for us all, when we stop playing mere human and open our eyes to the fact that there is so much more to life than the spoils of creation that we have willingly accepted as being true without questioning its validity, life offers a different dimension and expands our horizons more than we could ever think possible and as you say, life becomes rich beyond measure.
I agree with you Alison when we just look beneath the surface ripples of life there is a huge richness to be felt. How amazing is it that I can feel someone’s jealousy and not be affected by it but understand by reading the energy that they are in that really they are upset with themselves that they have not made the choices I have made and can feel the unpleasantness of what this feels like in their bodies. We are feeling energy and each other all the time we cannot stop this process we can only dull, deny or check-out from feeling everything all of the time. If we were to check-in we would know everything that is going on around us it is given to us that why there is a richness to life that we are ignoring to our disadvantage.
When people are speaking I like to see the Bubles of vibrations coming out which reveals exactly what is truly delivered. Which can be very different then the spooken words.
I do not want to be a wilful fool anymore. I want to see things as they truly are – both the magic and the monstrous – and therefore have an honest, aware and responsible relationship with life.
Matilda I feel we have been so fooled and because of this we have then willfully deceived ourselves by making ourselves less and not looking beyond being human. And anyone who dares suggest we are more than human is ridiculed and ostracized from our current society because no one wants to blow the lid on the lies we have all fallen for.
Choosing to see things as they truly are, to see truth is the only way; surely we have all had enough of the lies and corruption.
Michael, your words speak powerfully to me this morning. To be shown the sludge we’re living in is of our own making, awakens one to be more honest with self, to step out of the box completely and not desire chocolate at all isn’t as simple as it appears and something I’ve yet to master.
Essentially there is only one choice – who we are / not who we are or love and not love. Afterwards, there are lots of alternatives to express that one choice but they are of lesser importance.
Yes exactly Christoph, and we have championed the number of alternative ways it can play out once the choice to be not who we are is made.
The world we have created is very good at giving us loads of choices, often making a big song and dance and hooking ploys manoevering to get maximum attention. And we tend to be more than happy to play the game and believe the more variety and flavours the better. After all the name of the game is vying for individuality.
And all along we ignore the fact that the one and only choice has ever been whether we live according to the impulse of our Soul, or the myriad of ways that creates a world contra to that.
This keeps it simple, ‘the one and only choice has ever been whether we live according to the impulse of our Soul’.
At a time when there is so much corruption going on, it is interesting to see how much “creation” is working to stop people connecting with and having access to truth. We say we are in a modern world, but that world does not want the truth.
This is so true David the collective energy at the moment seems to be in full resistance to the truth, it is busy spinning more lies to cover up the lies they have already spun. At some point the lies will be exposed and we can see this happening within politics, religion and science to name but a few.
The ancient wisdom offers us our guide to creation and how to get out of it and live within the oneness of God we are part of, our essence and the understanding of the fact the everything is energy first and there is so much more than what our eyes can see going on. A beautiful sharing that supports us all to see the truth.
Settling for what we have, even if it is the best, is what will keep us enclosed in this creation of ours.
We even have the idiom ‘best of a bad lot’, why are we so good at settling for what is far less glorious than the truth of what we are and what we absolutely deserve?
What an amazing blog Michael, thank you, thank you, thank you. There is so much for one to consider, actually to feel before reaching for that box of chocolates.
Ah this is beautiful Michael, if ever there was doubt of who we are just come back to this: ‘we can identify ourselves by name and behaviour and individualise ourselves, but in truth and in essence, we are largely made up of space, and this space does not have colour, creed or religion to differentiate itself from another bit of space, and the little mass we can claim we have is changing so frequently that we do not get a chance to retain any, and certainly could not identify ourselves with a certain set of particles.’
Everything we are physically, in our movements and make up, is all energy; every one is part of energy and so we are all part of a whole. And not in isolation, even as I tap though on my phone on my sofa, in my lounge, I am still part of someone’s life on the other side of the planet as much as my neighbour’s. This is a universal law that is incontrovertible.
Thanks to Universal Medicine, Serge and Natalie Benhayon, I am becoming ever more aware of the way we live in this world of Creation, how we are used and willingly submit ourselves to being used to perpetuate the falsehood – all that serves to veil the true light that we are innately from and are offered each moment to reconnect to.
At the moment the sense of love that I can tangibly feel in and around my body is way too strong to let me go for the chocolate of this world.
Very true, all it requires is to tune in.
Quite nice to see this comment at a time where my tuning fork is slightly off haha
And glorious tunes help us breathe our own breath.
Imagine that all the time we become over identified with the roles we have in life, it was a creation of ours for the purpose of seeking recognition, approval and acceptance. All because we separated from the love that we are.
When we understand that there is more to life than being human everything begins to make sense and the opportunity to fully embrace our multidimensality opens up before our eyes from within.
It does make sense of life clearer than ever before. Without the need to search or be confused or reactive in unknowing.
There is so much more to life than being human, we are a part of a multidimensional grandness.
We can either symbolically (and in actuality too) choose chocolate and then there are lots of flavours which initially taste great if we ignore the effect on our body or choose no chocolate, something that is initially less comfortable but feels better and better as time goes on.
We can use the drama and emotions of life to keep us distracted from the quality of being that we are living.
Every thing is energy and this universal law means that we can only be multi dimensional beings, as my fingers tap the phone, every thing I have chosen is in my fingertips…the conversation, thoughts, movements…energy first. I have no doubt about this and so…with that I am learning to be more responsible in life.The ripples of our choices have an impact, our choices will determine the quality of the impact. Love or not love…
Children are very aware of far more than the physical life, they can feel energy at play, ‘are they so energetically astute that they can sense the slightest change in the energy of the parent despite the physical pretense?’
We are all reading and feeling energy all the time. We can’t deny that we can feel someone before they speak, get a sense of where people are at- and observe much just by looking at how someone moves.
We know everything before we see or hear it, that is just a secondary confirmation.
So many different flavours and yet we all end up in the same place feeling dissatisfied.,.and no wonder we lie to ourselves with every mouthful we consume concerning this murky mix we have made called our created life. How often do we feel we live true to ourselves…if the answer sometimes, that in itself tells us so much…what is happening the rest of the time?
So true that “So many different flavours and yet we all end up in the same place feeling dissatisfied”. At some point we need to stop and accept the fact that this elusive satisfaction is never going to come from increasing the range of flavours or upping the level of our consumption.
Makes sense why so many of us go to the shops and buy the same old things (even though we say to ourselves today’s the day we are turning over a new leaf). We are used to choosing the same energy in a very familiar sense.
‘energy exists way before the physical action – or outplay that we observe with our eyes – takes place.’ When we bring this teaching as our perspective on life, life becomes uncomplicated and not at all mysterious.
Especially once we notice that energy comes in two main configurations.
Amen explains how someone can act so out of character sometimes.
I am very up for weeding out my attachments to creation. I have always really enjoyed my relationship with the stars – the so much more there is than human existence – and know I hold back my understanding and living of this by being invested in and limiting myself to human experience.
The real key is to bring that relationship with the stars into life rather than keep them separate. And that works both ways: glamourising the stars and ignoring the detail of human life or focussing totally on the physical and being blind to what the universe offers us.
And sometimes it is as simple as looking up at the stars and letting ourselves reflect and feel
What a truly amazing blog, there is so much to ponder on and take away. Thankyou Michael for taking the time to share your wisdom.
I know this eternal unsettlement that the box of chocolates brings – which one to choose, which order, which one do I save till last, when I finish it when will there be more? how will I get another box? etc….. When I look up from the box, and feel the sun, the sky, the stars, the universe, I am reminded that there is more and I feel more settled.
Beautifully put Sarah, there are only solutions in the box, not answers.
‘When I look up from the box, and feel the sun, the sky, the stars, the universe, I am reminded that there is more and I feel more settled’ they bring a beautiful perspective yet not through what is seen, but what our bodies are reminded of.
Life gets very interesting when you start to give attention to the energy behind the actions. We start then to see how we get controlled by forces until we step in our power again.
If we did open up to the fact that energy is the most important factor in every single element we experience in life, and bothered to develop our ability to discern what energy every aspect of our life impacts us with, we would realise that we have a far more limited choice than we think we do.
And how important that choice is, ‘If all our actions and movements come from a quality of energy first and we are the ones who are responsible for determining that, then surely we are responsible, and therefore accountable for the life we then end up walking.’
There is a natural order and flow in nature and life which corresponds to precise mathematical patterns and yet we as humans we seek to change it or manipulate life from its profound simplicity and harmony.
‘There are more ways than one to skin a cat’ came to mind, meaning that if we want to use creation then we will find any one of the gazillion solutions it will offer up. Yet they will be just that, a solution, not and answer by the art and science of the universe.
Love this, and very true that creation is heavily solution-based.
‘It is time for us to leave behind the box altogether. Let’s allow the stars to guide us onward and upward and let us give permission to our particles to show us the way.; Love this!
We are the players and the pawns all in one, enjoying the taste of both until we are corrected and shown that the game is just that…. a game.
‘we are mostly made up of space, and very few parts mass’. This is a phenomenal point that asks us to relook at ourselves and our relationships.
The analogy of food here is an apt one for what we see is not what we get. Just as our eyes can feast on a beautiful cake or platter of food our body will have to deal with what it really is made up from. So to with our choices in life, they may fit a picture but our body will be the one dealing with the quality of energy it originated (is made up) from.
A smorgasbord so tempting and as far as our eyes can see makes us forget to ask the question if we want to eat in the first place. Only when we start to realise there is more than just the smorgasbord we will first start to pick more consciously until such time that we are no longer enticed by it at all.
If we are but open and willing to see the world around us is filled with clues and directions to what life truly is about and who we really are.
Exactly… It is as if there is an organic sat-nav all around us all the time ready to guide us back home
I love that Chris ‘an organic sat nav’ as it shows how complete and simple that makes life. There is not much for us to do but develop our awareness of the sat nav. Oh well and then not stubbornly choose a different direction anyway of course 🙂
Creation like chocolate is no solution to the constant unrest most of us have. Living true to who we are is the only thing that brings settlement.
‘If Everything is Energy, then – Energy must Matter’. I feel like putting a few exclamation marks at the end of this sentence because it’s not something that’s generally paid any attention when it is everything. Are we really so content with scoffing the chocolates we want and caring for nothing more?
No matter how brilliant a mind may be, it is always worth communicating the universe as it is, in simple and easy to understand ways, so that no person is left behind. Because the universe and its laws do not belong to those who understand it or can write about, we are all a part of it because we live in it and so it is a part of us.
It seems in the world today we have more choices than ever in every aspect of life in our so called modern developed societies but it is also clear that we are not any happier or contented as a result, so something else must be going on here for sure.
Great blog Michael, so many things we need to look at in our life and the choices we are making
I agree Alexandre that we need to look at the choices we are making and look deeper into the why are we making them what are we getting out of any situation.
If we don’t consider the quality we feel in anything and everything in life, we can easily be seduced by the great look, description, justification and all the boxes ticked, which only ever tells us about the packaging.
Beautiful Michael a true way of living for us all shared here with a knowing and understanding of the multidimensionality we come from and are returning to as who we truly are.
The key is not trying to better human life, but see that it is actually not The Way.
‘Life is rich beyond measure when we don’t play mere human.’ and that is the reason why we are all so unhappy here on Planet Earth, we are playing dumb, pretending we are just human and completely ignoring our multidimensionality. We are so much more than mere humans and even the tiniest glimpse of that is enough for us to either run away and hide, numb out, or to celebrate and allow more of it out.
This is some blog Michael! Life, the universe and everything! Great to have it all on one page!
We love to bake the cake, put anything and everything into it, and then eat it. But we eat so much we get sick yet we carry on thinking we love it, continuously baking and eating; changing the ingredients at our whim enjoying the choice of what to add or subtract. I love that the stars remind us that we’re more than this cake mix mess.
The stars reflect our glory, ‘looking up at the stars, we have a divine existence constantly reflecting to us where we originate from, what we are capable of and what one day, we shall return to.’
Even in the most compacted situations, environments, cities, if we can sense the space within us, then everything drops into deeper settlement.
I agree ..and then of course the question of why and how are we making such a choices?
As everything is energy so, too, we are energy. Connect to and know the energy we are choosing to allow in and through our body and we have true choice and freedom.
I wonder if that is why we keep ourselves in blissful ignorance that we are so much more that our five physical senses. Is there a part of us that does know but is terrified of the enormity of who we truly are and what it has done by separating from its greater whole? The greater part of humanity lives a lie and we continue to add to this lie because to admit we have got it wrong is devastating to that part of us that separated from the whole in the first place.
Great questions. There is a wonderful humility in admitting we got it wrong. Taking a wrong turn and driving or walking a long way off course, continuing in the hope that it’ll come good but having to admit the only way back is to turn around often really gets to me. I wonder if this is because I can feel the devastation of knowing I have gone in the wrong direction and knowing it served no purpose and really having to accept that is key to never being lulled by that route again.
Michael, this an amazing article. What you are sharing makes sense and makes me realise that the way we commonly choose to live – with drama and issues and living less than our potential – is not our true way.
The truth of creation revealed for us all to see clearly the understanding of energy at play and the vastness of who we really are in our multidimensionality instead of playing the mere human at the mercy of the very rigid and narrow mindedness we choose. “looking up at the stars, we have a divine existence constantly reflecting to us where we originate from, what we are capable of and what one day, we shall return to.”
That is quite a mind-blowing thing to consider that for most of humanity, no matter what we think is a unique choice, a different decision or a creative idea, that they are all the same at their source.
It was a mind blowing thing for me to consider at first!
And natural therefore then to know that our choices are tailor made, to the detail, by either the human 3D creative source, or multi dimensional awareness.
“But this comes with a price – an eternal unsettlement – as deep down we cannot escape the knowing that we have left behind the fullness of who we are and are now living as just a mere fragment of that glory” It takes a great amount of humility to write this sentence, but that is what we do on a daily basis, just living a fraction of who we are and wondering why nothing in this plane of life ever truly satisfies us.
Looking at it from this level of clarity, it seems crazy that we choose to express a fraction of the who we are, and when we feel the pain of such a reduction of the glory that is our true expression, we start applying all sorts of strategies to dull the ache, distract ourself and most of all blame other people and external situations for the deep discontent we feel. But so true living as this, however hard we try, we cannot escape the eternal unsettlement.
“There’s More to Life than Being a Human” – I have always felt this to be the truth – we are so much more than we are told we are.
So true, Michael – ‘we luxuriate in our own creation rather than seek and embrace what has been on offer since time immemorial’. We think we are getting away with it as well, however our rates of illness and disease and rise in mental health reveal that living against our true nature is not serving us.
Exactly its that point, that we think we get away with so many things but at the same time we are shown through how sick we get the extent of the level of abuse that we live by.
If we could see the source of energy and intention which goes into creating chocolate we would not be so ready to put it into our mouths despite the comfort it may offer.
Even if we opened up to feeling it, let alone seeing it, we’d be a far sight more aware of what we are actually ‘eating’.
‘Because we can’ – totally. And it’s quite funny how we like to play a role of a rather compromised version of god and try proving that very point, yet staunchly refuse to accept that we are actually god and act in the way we are designed to. It’s like, stop – all of that, then we would find that we are already much much more grander and more magnificent than we had ever imagined and wanted to prove ourselves to be, and it might actually be very easily done with a blink of an eye.
When we engage in the energetic awareness of life everything changes. We can begin to see the lies that we have been living and the Grand Love that truly we are, and are from.
I can’t deny that everything can be felt – and that energy is everything. We just have to take everyday examples to substantiate this fact -but the next choice is always how much do I love with this knowing in my every movement.
Yep HM, it’s about the step that’s there to be taken – do we move with it or make our own decision about what’s best.
When we hold the variety of choice above the depth of quality as we have been throughout society, we are in trouble.
Indeed Golnaz, I know I love choice but what if the choice was not needed when we focused on quality first. It would change the way we approach life, focusing on what is the greatest quality I could choose in that moment.
Take your pick! So many flavours to choose from in order to not feel or acknowledge that deep down inside there is a feeling of unease that brews in us all.
Amazing Michael and very powerful to read. Life has never made sense to me because there is so much disharmony, fighting, corruption, etc, and I’ve always felt we are out of place here as we don’t even exhibit the same harmony as nature. The disharmonious lives of human beings simply don’t fit in with the natural way of order, harmony and interdependence we see in nature. As a result we need to ask questions and find out why, enquire about the true foundation of human life and how we have veered away from the natural order and harmony. Thank you Michael for your contribution to this.
Not to forget that we are not just the consumers of the buffet but also its creators – both bringing some ambiguous satisfaction we often will only renounce when the painful downside gets the upper hand.
We become the chef, the waiter and the dishwasher at this buffet of life; our choices will always return to the source.
The grandness of our origins can never be altered no matter how much we attempt to delay or distract ourselves from it.
I was considering this point “The question begs – Why? Why have we created this sphere of life where we are miserable, happy, rich, poor, lonely or popular (all terms very relative and used loosely), yet all the while avoiding the fact that naturally, we are much, much grander and far wiser?” and then looked at my life and realise its the struggle that I go through that I often celebrate coming through instead of not needing to go through the struggle to appreciate my deepening connection with God and life.
Yeah, it’s that sense of self-achievement we can thrive on.
As there is more love on earth than ever before there are also more distractions or types of chocolates on offer than ever before.
So, so true…take a look at any high street and the plethora of food shops, restaurants, cafes and chocolatiers. It’s the chocolatiers and specialist bakeries (fancy cakes) that amaze me the most; these shops hardly even existed five years ago and now they seem to be everywhere.
Creation Energy and who we all really are is a fascinating and an essential understanding needed in life as it makes sense of everything and the eternal unsettlement we keep ourselves in while through the simplicity of surrendering and listening to our bodies we have our guide and way back home and the joy and love we are as multidimensional beings from heaven.
Looking back I can say I don’t like the way certain things turned out, but in all of that I also have to say now that it was my choice, the creation I wanted.
How true David, it is a sobering reality to realise that it was our own choice.
‘Because we can’ is a very interesting point and phrase which rings so truly. Even though we may know something may not be helpful or beneficial we may choose it purely because we can rather than fully feeling the effects it will have on us and others. The more we see that each choice affects the next choice the more we will be more conscious and deliberate in the choices we are making knowing the knock on effect and not seeing each choice in isolation rather and amalgamation of the whole.
We have to appreciate that energy is constantly at play – and that we can always sense so much more than we see on the surface. When we appreciate this we can live in a hugely expanded way.
Very and well said, there is so much more going on than purely what our eyes see or our ears hear. The more we embrace this the more the world of energy comes alive and no longer are we blinded to the reality of the unseen world.
If we knew we were stepping into a theme park for our spirit to play in when we are born, it would make such a difference to what we are willing to see in life and what we accept as reality. There are so many glittering choices but all are designed to keep us distracted, chasing a dream and away from our inner stillness.
Ah yes, ‘let us give permission to our particles to show us the way.’ I love the way this really does show us we need not hold a tight control on life and that our bodies can guide us when we listen to it.
Life is ‘A Buffet of Choices’ – we are offered and tempted with choices of every liking 24/7 to keep being distracted from realizing and choosing the one thing we crave most that is not placed at the disposal at the buffet: being our original self in full.
But how many times do we get metaphorical indigestion before we realise that the buffet is not the answer?
😉 As often as we need the bloating and ‘cramps’ before we are willing to no longer suffer. Learning it the painful way is quite often the only way we seem to choose.
There are many ways to degrade and diminish ourselves, and often they are disguised as “fun” or “kicking back”, for example like a night out getting drunk.
I might be on my own here but I have found that the quality of energy mentioned in the article is actually determined a lot by how I move, down to the detail of how conscious I am opening a door or walking to the bathroom.
No not on your own Michael, I’m with you on that experience too, and find that these details are key.
Being present with ourselves is very responsible, allowing us to choose the quality of energy in each moment and how that expresses through our movements. When we are not aware of or with ourselves such as skipping ahead to future moments, we lose our connection and the quality of our energetic presence. As with everything in creation, we enjoy the complexity rather than surrendering to something so simple like being present and the way we move. That’s where the Ageless Wisdom comes in, simplicity and practicality.
It just goes to show everything is down to choice and the energy of that choice.
When we begin to study the quality of energies that impulse our third dimensional realm, so many of the inexplicable troubles that run rife in our world will suddenly make complete and absolute sense.
Yes indeed, there is much more to life than meets the eye. If we limit our awareness to our five senses we miss out on receiving endless communication from the constant evolving field of energy we inescapably live within.
What I’m finding is the more we are able to look through creation, to see the box of chocolates is not all its cracked up to be then we can start to embrace choices that will eventually end our addiction to it and provide the real purpose of life, not to better creation but to live the joy we felt as kids.
There is so much in this blog, Michael, for us to reflect on. The concept of space is a favourite of mine. The more I deepen in connection with my soul, the stronger a sense I get of the grandness every one of us is a part of, and in this space everything can be felt and known.
‘let us give permission to our particles to show us the way.’ Love this Michael. Allowing the innate wisdom of my body to lead the way has been the most ongoing, powerful learning experience for me.
An awesome and powerful blog with so much in it… and a great introduction to the unseen world of energy and how we are the creators of everything that happens in our lives. We all have played the part of being ‘merely human’, being arrogant, and ignorant and loving our box of chocolates with all its many flavours of distraction, comfort, entertainments and illusions to keep us playing less than who we truly are. But as the author suggests, it is time to let go of our ‘boxes of comfort’, and let our bodies and yes our particles show us the way home, for indeed, ‘Life is rich beyond measure when we don’t play mere human’.
Perhaps we know exactly what we are going to get and still do it as we want the consequences and the experience?
I always knew that chocolate meant more than meets the eye… and stomach and taste buds!
Still tastes good though haha
It is always good, in my view, to bring things back to basics of maths, because in the simple equations life is where I can see exactly what does and what does not make sense.
If we see that we have been picking from one box of chocolates, but there actually is another box that does serve something that doesn’t contain chocolate at all, is the paradigm we need to embrace.
