“Individuation is to divest the self of false wrappings.”
In the most basic of ways, the human experience is a perspective. It is a physical perspective, as in the perception of where and how the body is. It is a mental-emotional perspective, as in where we are in the experience of the thought-feeling stream. Many different layers of perspective are superimposed on one another, creating a gestalt experience we call self but is better called our energetic location.
While the mind can conceive of two identical beings, it is simply not something nature has ever demonstrated. Even if genetically identical twins stand side by side, they occupy two different space-time coordinates and so may be similar but ultimately are experiencing different perspectives. Remembering this, or “locating” ourselves, is the root of clarifying one’s uniqueness of experience and perspective and allowing for the same in all others.
Bathing In It
Uniqueness is often painted as a radical difference, an exuberant deviation, or an eccentric insistence and exception to the rule. But these are conceptual notions that, while they have their place in cultural relations, serve to only distract us from our direct knowing of our true uniqueness. We must move beyond the linear and conceptual and instead look to our direct experience to find such truth.
Our uniqueness is ever-changing, so the only way to experience it, stay present with it, is to let go. Opening our senses, inside and out, we find an expanse of awareness taking in our bodies and minds in every moment. To enter fully into this field of being, we must learn to slip into it like a bath and float in it like water. To float in water or awareness, we are staying attentive and otherwise letting go.
Tuning In, Turning On, And Dropping Other People’s Energy
Recalibrating to this direct experience of ourselves allows us to clarify our energy from other people’s energies. As we go through our day, we are awash in the energetic demands of others, benign or otherwise. While a natural part of any communication with another, these demands have a way of lingering beyond the encounter and becoming confused with our own energies. Returning directly to our own energy helps us to reset to our own path.
Re-learning to dwell within our own unique frequency liberates us from the constraints of other people’s designs. It empowers us to move in such ways as to enhance our collaborative undertakings to more mutually beneficial outcomes. Learning to let go of the demands of others, even if just for a few moments, helps us to refine our sense of our own energy, and with that refinement strengthens us to move with awareness and power within the multiplicity.
