Are we Living an Illusion Through a Fairytale Thought?
By Andrea Infante
Thinking back on
my teenage moments, I had this mad crush on Prince Charles, Prince of
Wales. I dreamed that one day he would walk into my life and sweep me
off my feet. The only thing we had in common was our birthdays. Both of
us are born in the same month and on the same day with exactly 10 year
difference to the date. What we didn't have in common was life itself.
Wondering how I could live the princess image within myself so I could
possibly have the opportunity to persuade Queen Elizabeth that I was the
best match out there for her beloved son. Not even aware that I was living
an illusion...a conscious magical relationship, I purchased every article
in print on Prince Charles, studied his family so that they would accept
me and approve of me running away with my Prince Charming. I spent valuable
time living an illusion that I felt could give me power and recognition
as a person. Literally, how many stories are in print describing how Prince
Charming comes racing into someones life, kisses them and they become
alive, magical, and set in motion.
Heres the truth whether you believe it or not, you cannot find happiness in someone else even if you love, adore and create them to be your everlasting God or Goddess. Its no surprise that we are victims of this mis-belief as how many times have we sat in front of the television and watched Disney tell us a story of our magical prince, yet alone bed-time stories of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Cinderella while Mom or Dad were absent in loving us in WHOLE. Isnt it easier to believe fairytales are romantic, safe emotional harbors? You bet it is! So how do we overcome the belief that finding happiness in someone else is not the answer? How do we connect to Self and see who we really are? I can't tell you how my times I have re-lived the past of being abandoned and how the present moment helped me eliminate more than 90 percent of that process that doesn't exist any longer in my life. It had happened. I kept making it happen. But its not to keep happening! Living in the past and looking for someone to rescue you does not eliminate abandonment. It keeps the cycle alive. Its in the present moment where you will connect to self and see all that you had been living in someone or something else including the illusions in self.
Meditation is a great purity of Divine presence in self that enables you to focus on your current surroundings. Keeping self in present moment brings instant spiritual connection with our creators presence, our Source. Being in the NOW is the key to clearing past issues and illusions and obtaining a secure, safe present life free of any illusions.
The spiritual truth is that the only person who can ever make you happy is YOU. Thats why learning how to unconditionally love and accept your Self is a grand accomplishment. We love and accept ourselves in the present moment. What we accomplish in the present moment is reality...a reality that we are not perfect and acceptance of ourselves. The power is within you. Not someone else. In the present moment, you will find that you are perfect the way you are. Loving yourself is not being selfish but selfless. Its called, unconditional love.
Your mind uses the past and its illusions (fairytales) to emotionally escape (repress, minimize, deny, etc.) when your relationships trigger feelings that make you feel ignored, abandoned, frightened, abused, or misunderstood then its easy to instantly place self in that fairytale love story. It makes you feel as if your safety and security are dependent upon another person. Such as the thought, his love will save me. So how do we overcome this? The task ahead of you is not an easy one to take. The answer is spiritual relationship with self.
A spiritual relationship with self leads to ONE or WHOLE. You begin to create an environment that is healthy and fosters the belief that you can be on all levels in Being. Being in spirituality means; mind, body and soul in ONENESS. You have the power to transform your fairytale relationship beliefs into Self-Being in present moment. By bringing self into presence, you are able to capture the picture of past conscious illusions and where the fairytale source originated from. By dissecting piece by piece of this self-belief of yourself and eliminating the fantasy of Prince Charming coming to rescue you, you will help You to attract a spiritually based, consciously awakened, loving relationship; a relationship where you can feel safe, appreciated, and loved; a relationship created by equals for the purpose of spiritual growth and a relationship where you and your partner agree that nothing is more important than your spiritual growth in the present moment. This is conscious living.
