The Pendulum Must Swing
Written by Jafree Ozwald
Life is always teaching us what we most need to know. Sometimes it provides a negative experience so we learn how to let go, while other times we receive a positive experience so we see how sacred our existence truly is. If you look closely you’ll notice that there is and has always been a constant swing of the pendulum from positive to negative experience, and then back again. This eternal swing is there for a divine reason, so that you learn how to become free from both extremes and move beyond the physical world, so you can rest deeply into the creative manifesting being you truly are.
Your problems cannot be solved by changing the outer world, they can only shift by going deeper into your inner world, towards your center where you can see that these “problems” are opportunities in disguise. When you can realize that you are not a victim to the natural swing of the pendulum of life, you’ll see that you go beyond the high and low extremes. The lesson life is trying to teach us is not about getting out of the low swing, or remaining at the high point. It’s about transcending both levels by realizing this eternal soul, who you really are, is beyond them both.
If you are experiencing a dramatic swing between positive and negative experiences, this is because you are still overly identified with your mind, body and identity. This world is made of energy, information and intelligence that is always changing. Whenever you get stuck or fixated on a thing, idea, expectation or anything for that matter, you cause the pendulum to become hooked, spring loaded and then it catapults you to the extreme. If you want to transcend this unconscious pattern pay very close attention to the mind without getting snagged in its web, and realize what is the source that is watching this mind.
“Stop imagining yourself being or doing this or that and the realization that you are the source and heart of all will dawn on you.” ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
Choose to become super vigilant with the mind 24 hours a day Soon you’ll be able to see and feel your pendulum swing coming. First you may notice a subtle shift in energy towards having a more positive or negative experience and then see the body respond according. Just watch the pendulum, and be aware of the tendency of the mind to get identified with every experience. For example the mind will say, “Ahhh now that this happened my life is truly good, or I cannot believe that happened now my life is horrible.” This is how the mind gets hooked by the play of life and the divine pendulum swing. Don’t get hooked by this judgmental mind. Instead just notice where you are on the pendulum and trust the momentum will soon swing back to the opposite direction when you relax and let go.
For the next 48 hours, get into the habit of watching where you are at on this pendulum swing. Clear your eyes of how life should or shouldn’t be. Be persistently aware of this pure awareness watching the pendulum as often as you can. Make your whole day a vigilant watching exploration. Notice how life naturally is always swinging from positive to negative and the mind follows with going from good to bad. Watch closely yet remain free of any judgment of where your pendulum is at. In a short time it will all change. This awareness is what will help you discover what its like to reach your natural enlightened state.
