Without experience, there’s not much life – Abrahm-Hicks Quotes
Words really don’t teach, it’s life experience. Don’t you sometimes wonder what the comprehension is of someone who is speaking a language that you can’t understand, like your dog? Don’t you sometimes wonder what that life experience is? Don’t you sometimes look at them and wonder what’s going through their mind, wonder how they’re translating this moment in time? Because they’re not putting words to it, but their experience is real; they are consciousness having an experience.
So when you don’t try so hard to achieve mutuality with other humans who you want to agree with you, and instead, you start just taking in life and you let your comprehension of it in any moment blend with the comprehension that the broader Nonphysical Inner Being You is having at the same moment, make no mistake – your Inner Being is right here right now with you comprehending where you’re at and what you’re about in every moment of your waking day. Never ever, ever, are you having a moment that your Inner Being is not in on and having an awareness of.
So that’s why we so much enjoyed the conversation about emotions, because your emotions let you know what that Nonphysical experience is in relationship to what your human perspective or experience is. And once you start reaching more and more for moments of satisfaction and accomplishing them, then the more of your day you will spend in blended concert with that Broader Perspective. And then with the richness of your life experience and your ability to comprehend what’s going on, you’ll find yourself not comprehending what everybody’s thinking and what everybody’s doing – that’s not the point of it – you’ll get the inside scoop from their Inner Being; you’ll work in concert with their Inner Being. And then and only then will you begin to be the true uplifter that you were born to be, because if you’re not in cahoots with their Inner Being, you’re not helping them.
If you’re focused upon them in any way that causes separation within you, and therefore does not influence anything other than separation in them, you are not being the uplifter that you were born to be.
And that’s why you feel so often, as humans, blameful about the way others make you feel – “You make me feel this way, you make me feel that way. If you would behave differently, then I would feel differently.” And once you get hold of that, once you take control of the way you feel because you decide whether you are going to, in a satisfied way, be in concert with your Inner Being’s perspective of them and their Inner Being’s perspective of them, or whether you’re willing to just be under the influence of whatever was happening in that place in New York that day – there was a lot going on that day that got your Silvia’s attention, and she didn’t like giving her attention over to that mutuality, she was used to this mutuality.
So how do you live in the world, how do you be of this world and maintain that? Well, first of all, you have to be without it a little bit in order to experience the relief of rediscovering it. And then it must go beyond the relief of rediscovering it – you have to find the relief of it, yes, you have to make your way back to it in order to know that you can – but once you discover that you can find the relief of connection, and then you encourage that connection and you parlay it into greater and greater confidence and invincibility and wholeness and pure and perfect love, then you get on with your life experience. And if you’re not trying too hard to chat it up with everybody else, and make them understand each and every thing you think about each and every thing, then you can get there. And then you just live through the clarity of your example; then you just be it.
Asker: So, if life is life experience…
Abraham: Since life is life experience…
Asker: Since life is life experience…
Abraham: Without experience, there’s not much life.
Asker: …why am I sending my kids to school? Some like it – some of what we have like it. They like focusing, they like being around their peers, they like focusing. Then I have one who is maybe done – Lilly. Maybe, or…
Abraham: Well, we talk about the value of the contrast, the value of the variety, the value of the expansion, the value of choices, the value of data – in other words, that’s why; that’s why.
Asker: That’s giving you the life experience.
Abraham: The life experience does the teaching – it’s not what the teachers say necessarily, and it’s not what they’re being offered in the textbook exactly, it’s about their interaction with one another, and their exposure to life. And it’s about the thoughts that they then think as a result of the atmosphere that they’re in and how they feel about the thoughts that they think. And it’s this delicious opportunity for them to feel a spark of interest within them.
If we were standing in any of your physical shoes and we were mentoring or parenting anyone about school, the attitude that we would have about the school is, about their experience in school is, this is an opportunity for you to discover what things feel more exciting to you, or most exciting to you; this is like a buffet where you can feel what’s more satisfying or what’s less satisfying. And in every moment, even if something is offered to you – maybe even demanded, a curriculum that is demanded by a teacher or by administration – even if you are assigned something, still, within every single assignment, there is satisfying and less.
And so, if they become oriented toward looking for the satisfying, then they will learn at an early age – they will experience at an early age – how to find it everywhere they are, instead of running around like so many humans who are trying to control conditions, because the only thing they know to do is have a knee-jerk response to conditions, so if the condition is a good one, they have a good feeling knee-jerk response, and if the condition doesn’t feel so good, they have a not so good feeling, and then they feel like they are out of control, and then they want to do what most people want to do, which is control conditions (which you can’t do), and then they feel the futility of not being able to control the conditions, and then they become despondent and more and more disconnected from their Inner Being, who knows they are invincible.
Asker: Yeah. OK, I’m doing a good job. That’s not the way I say it.
Abraham-Hicks: Yes you are.
Asker: I say go in, you’re adaptable, look at what you like.
Abraham-Hicks: The thing about adaptable is be one who acknowledges, but don’t be so quick to adapt, be quick to make your choice, because always you are surrounded by those who seek your mutuality, who want nothing more than for you to adapt to their philosophy or their beliefs. So of course, adaptation is a significant part of life experience, but when you remind them always of their choice – if there is any adaptation that we are encouraging, it’s adapting to the broader point of view that your Inner Being holds about this and that and everything. And when you do that, then there’s never any gap in your happily-ever-after sequence.
Asker: Good. Yeah. Thank you so much.
Abraham-Hicks: Yes, indeed.
Asker: That was good.
Abraham-Hicks: Yes, indeed. Really good.
