“The path is not to be found, but merely walked.”
I had an amazing time interviewing Noah for our first week.
Week 1 video interview will be available shortly on youtube, the audio interview for week 1 is archived on Heaven Sent Radio for the next 8 weeks and here is a short summary of the first chapter.
“The only thing you should be doing is what you are doing. Don’t read this and feel like you are doing something wrong.”
So often we read books and we become guilty that we aren’t trying hard enough or doing enough in our own lives’. Noah was quick to point out that whatever you are doing right now is EXACTLY what you should be doing, nothing more…nothing less.
It’s important to live your own life and give yourself credit for your own hard work and effort. This book is simply his story, his viewpoint, right or wrong.
“It is easy to attach an emotional history to a word, phrase or idea that can, in turn, create feelings which distort meaning or perception. Yet a word itself can never judge or condemn, only its interpreter.”
I thought this was quite interesting as I’d never thought of it in this way before. We each have our own filters and we can say the exact same thing to 5 different people and each person will take it completely different based on their “history” or filters of their world.
So important to remember…a word is just a word it is the listener that attaches meaning based on their emotional experiences….LOVE THAT!!!
“I have come here to this life to experience a process of awakening into a more wholly reality. In this process, I have been witness to an elegantly blatant chronological order which has organized and fashioned what once appeared to be chaos and madness. The chronology of awakening grows daily in its obvious nature. I see it everywhere now, this process.”
As we all have, come here to experience awakening that is. And so we are reminded that everything is always in divine and perfect order even when it doesn’t FEEL like it. Once we surrender to that truth life begins to flow and order arises out of the chaos. And once you awaken you realize that there really are “no wrong turns, no mistakes, and no wasted efforts–ever.”
Noah also answered the question: “Why did you choose to write the chapters in reverse order?” Essentially he began with the moment we were dropped into this body, this consciousness which is where chapter 8 begins and then the book ends with chapter 0: Become the Blessing (There is Only Light).
Ch 8: The Lie & Truth are Separated (Darkness Falls)
“A decision was made, the decision to be expressed as the self. In this decision for the self, I came to the darkness. This darkness has no preference, holds no will, and only asks of me what I would ask of it. This darkness is me. I am it.
In this darkness, all agreements are made, all wisdom is tempered and placed appropriately and perfectly where it will serve when the time comes.
Here in the darkness, I long not for the light, for I know not of it. I breathe in the quiet stillness during this calm before the storm–the wondrous storm–known as living. It is here that I am surrender, as I release one kind of perfection in exchange for another.
The darkness is brief. In this first, last and only moment of this darkness, there is a pull. This is a pull in all directions as I separate from everything that I truly am, as everything that I truly am separates. All parts of me are disjoined, scattered, thrown to the wind.
This is the pull of what is to come. This is the creation of darkness. This is the construction of the road to be traveled and the development of purpose. The journey is afoot and not a step will be missed. Yet I do not anticipate. I only breathe, step, and be. I simply continue this process, this movement through the darkness.
I have decided.”
