ARE YOU SETTLING FOR A LOWER LEVEL OF LIVING (AND EMOTIONS)?

A WAY TO MEASURE THE LEVEL

(Link to share: Are You Settling For A Lower Level Of Living (And Emotions)?  A Way To Measure The Level


WHERE ARE YOU STUCK EMOTIONALLY, THAT LESSENS YOUR LIFE? 

If you still have any of the lower emotions, they will rob you of life!  They will keep you stuck.

Fix them and your life will soar to the higher levels of freedom, personal power, and happiness!!  

David Hawkins provides this way of looking at this in the big picture, overall.   

THE LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS AND LIVING IN LIFE

See David Hawkins’ book, Transcending the Levels of Consciousness: The Stairway to Enlightenment.

Basically, to get to live at the higher levels, we must stairstep our way up the ladder.  We cannot rise without leaving the lower levels.

If one doesn’t fix shame and guilt, one will not be able to live in the higher emotions.  

The same is true for these:

Fear – A condition where one believes in imaginary threats/dangers and believes that unverified thoughts are true.  Fear is only useful when there is impending danger of loss of life or limb. 

Desire – “Attachment to external goals at the level of addiction and deep hunger for power, money, sex, approval, and/or social  status.”  Notice the all too common “needs” for approval and/or social status!!!!!

True, one will sometimes experience the higher emotions but that is mostly from outsider circumstance, sources, and conditions, not a result of one’s own emotional competency!  One will soon slip easily back into the lower emotions.

The same is true of getting rid of fear, anger, and pride (and, yes, one will “rise” between the the three – pride is present

“But I can’t get rid of fear! It’s built into us!”  

No, that’s not correct.  Fear is caused by a set of programs that are entirely reprogrammable.  

If you don’t believe that, look and see where you tend to hover in life.

Is it something you’re willing to live with, and live at a lower level of existence? 

Are you living an expanded or a contracted (restrictive) life? (See the diagram above to see what that means.)

WHY DO WE HUMANS STAY STUCK?

As is very human, most of us want to take the easiest course and hope for great progress.  

And, of course, that doesn’t work.  

Check off those emotions you’re experiencing lower down on the scale (pride and below).  Those are the ones to work on, as they keep your lower brain occupied with them, leaving little room in our brain operating system to focus on getting what we really want in life!.  (See the “related” section below and it’ll give you the reading to conquer this…finally!)

THE GUISES OF FEAR – TO CLEAR AWAY!

Note that fear comes under several guises.

Afraid of what people think of you

Having to please people (yes that is a method of trying to control the fear and insecurity related to it) 

THE STAGE OF INTEGRITY – BE HERE IN ORDER TO GO HIGHER!

Courage, at 200, is where our biggest shift happens.

Also known as the stage of integrity, 200 is where we start discerning truth from falsehood, essence from ego.  And then we enter the higher brain and the higher self, where happiness is found! 

And we leave the operating from our lower brain and lower self.  Before that we are in  lower levels, which are painful. That’s why we are driven in our desire for understanding and inner growth.

Are you living in integrity with the realities of life and with yourself, and able to be totally authentic?

If you aren’t, life will not work as well!

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE, AND DOABLE, TO ACHIEVE A HIGHER LEVEL?

Yes, any normal person is capable of learning enough to build skills to any level any other human has achieved.  That is the truth.  

And, no, it is not true that there is not enough time!

Am I Capable Of Making My Life Excellent? Can I Have Confidence In Reaching That Higher Level?

Do I Have Enough Time?  Your view of how much time it will take away from your life is massively off!  See  How Learning Frees Up Massive Amounts Of Time, And Has You Enjoying Life Much, Much More

And while it helps a bit in practicing good things, you can’t by itself rise up the scale from the point of view at where we are living at one of the lower levels!  

It is best to fix the lower levels and then you’ll strongly ascend instead of always struggling to overcome what you hold as faults, but are really “not yet knowing”. You might want to skip all the steps in a ladder and jump to the higher ones, you cannot legitimately or strongly get by with not doing the needed steps to learn and install the beliefs, viewpoints and skills need to operate at a higher level in life,  

ANOTHER VIEW OF CONSCIOUSNESS

Note that pride and below are all in “victimness” consciousness (to the diagram’s right), which is a very bad feeling place to live in/from.   You must, finally, this time, clean those entirely from your programs and ways of being!   

How long are you willing to live in hell or purgatory?  (Or even partially?

Read from the pieces below and cure the lower ones, once and for all!  

Then you can live in heaven on earth!
