KM, can you espouse your standing under of 'delusion'
For me there can be 'imbalance' in attention to either/or the physical and the spiritual. For me 'non-dual' takes away the separation of them, rather than denying one or the other. (at least that's my take... if I'm wrong, I'm probably in the wrong place lol!)Basically, i see the spirit as a sport. I think Maharaj said that, and by spirit, I mean the individual soul or we could just say person. I'm a mystical traveller as some of you know and in my travels I've engaged with various energies about various things. One of these mentioned something to me once, and if there is indeed a contract in place, I havent been holding up my end of the bargain, and I know it.
So, the truth of the matter is, I could find out if soul contracts exist if i wanted to. I just havent wanted to hehe. I'll keep you posted.
Obviously being a slacko in your part of the bargain is 'niggling'. This is an interesting nudge, and I've had a few, some did involve kicking and screaming, denying the ability to respond to the opportunities as they presented and one or two very startling 'reminders'. As always though... no choice is wrong, it just brings a different experience.
What I've found is that it starts as a niggle, for me this resonates in my gut, can move into shoves into 'opportunities' - situations where you do have absolute choice whether to employ fear/separation or love/compassion/ faith in the unfolding/letting go, and sometimes if still ignored it ends up with a great big whack over the head with a lump of wet clay - where you all but have no choice. That's how I've described it in a book I'm writing. It has a resonance that bridges physical/spiritual 'boundaries'.
I have a 'huge' one that has been explained to me in two ways - one in a direct experience with the 'other' in the contract and then later explained in a session with a channeler that was accurate beyond doubt - a key for me was not just 'what' was said, but the 'resonance' of it.
You can argue all you like, you can even want to pee your pants... but it's already in motion (hahaha prob not the
right word when I'm talking about bodily functions)
later edit: actually... it IS the right word!! It IS gonna come out one way or the other!
The ancient Chinese Tzu Wei has a different explanation of physical/form & spiritual actions in harmony. they call it the Heavenly Stem (from which or through which it/creation flows) and the Earthly Branch where we 'conduit' through our selections in experience. the understanding of heavenly stem is it WILL happen, Earthly branch 'matter' MAY happen depending on roads you choose, selections you make etc etc - bit like having the necessary 'genes' for the predispostion a thing but other influences & choices affect whether or not it manifests, whereas some other things determine absolutely into form THAT a thing will happen with or without your interference.
eg: You MAY have the genetic predisposition towards alcoholism - but if you never drink alcohol it won't manifest vs the genetic predisposition to have red hair, which no matter what you do or don't do will BE.
Contracts on an Earthly/physical realm MAY emerge. Contracts of the spiritual realm WILL emerge - the how, when, why, etc is not set in concrete but will continually rise as 'opportunities'.
Awareness amd conscious response relieves spiritual constipation.
