There has been a lot going on in my world. It has been challenging and inspiring at the same time. It has been disappointing; and yet, a time for expansion and growth. What I have come to understand is that there are times when one must let go and just know with a certainty who one is. What does this mean? It means that not everyone understands life in the same way I do. It means giving up on the idea of controlling another person’s experience. It means truly letting go and letting God.
There is a quote by Rumi that I am doing my best to live in right now.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
There is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
The world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
Doesn’t make any sense.”
That second part is where my heart dwells today. “The world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn’t make any sense.” What world is Rumi talking about? It is the field of pure untouched energy? There is only oneness. All those ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing that create separation from each other are nothing compared to the fullness of the “Field.” It is the place where we can create anew from love. Of course, we will leave something behind, but the room will be made for the new life.
Is this Spiritual By-Passing? I do not believe so. We can see what is and claim all those thoughts of who is right and who is wrong as our reality, or we can move through it with a new perspective. People’s behavior is not who they truly are. We get to decide where are own thoughts will reside. What it doesn’t mean is that we do not take care of the business that is ours to take care of. We live in a 3D world, but we live in the 3D as 5D beings. We can take care of business from the highest point of view…“beyond all thoughts of right or wrongdoing.”
So, for today, I choose to create from the Field of pure untouched energy, the Field of the Unknown. I choose to create the world I want to see with my greatest tool: The imagination. What did the genius and spiritual being Einstein say about imagination? “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
The question is: how will I use my imagination today? I can get stuck in what I think “I know,” or I can open up to what I do not know. A mentor and friend of mind, James Mellon used to say, “I know nothing. Now what can I know.”
I must step beyond all ideas of righdoing and wrongdoing and embrace the unknown and what is possible when I drop all judgment. I will know what to do. I will be guided and directed. My intuition will lead the way and those things that no longer serve my beautiful dream will fall out of the way, and a new light will be birthed within me.
I trust this. I am willing to move beyond my judgements and past. I am willing to use my imagination untethered by what is and has been.

One thought on “Out Beyond Ideas of Wrongdoing and Rightdoing…”
I appreciate this knowledge and do believe. That said, bypassing is no longer in my personality. That is allowing persons I care about to hurt me emotionally and not say a word because I care for them. I have boundaries. It is just as important to let those persons know that their behavior has hurt me.
AWARENESS by all parties is the first step to forgiveness and to personal responsibility for our actions. If I do not know that my behavior is hurtful to another, then I am unaware and there is no need to change my actions, therefore no personal responsibility for them.
There is only One Presence, One Love. It is in me as it is in everyone and everything, visible and invisible and beyond beyond. I love my Loved Ones as I love Myself. I speak my Truth gracefully and kindly and not allow bypassing. I am accepting and forgiving to myself and to my loved ones.
I am so grateful for knowing this Truth for myself and all others. I release my fervent words into the Field, as Law. It is already done. And so it is.
I love you.
