Are You “Cradled in Convention”?
What is your purpose? Why are you here? And are you taking that “out to the edge”?
In other words — are you pushing yourself to the very edge of what you’re capable of, as it relates to your purpose in life?
In his poem, “The Call of the Wild,” Robert William Service talks about how other people have created us in their convention:
…They have cradled you in custom, they have primed you with their preaching,
They have soaked you in convention through and through;
They have put you in a showcase; you’re a credit to their teaching…
When we’re “cradled in convention,” this results in us seeing the entire world through someone else’s eyes — and through somebody else’s experience (rather than our own).
That’s what our parents did. They soaked us in “convention” — i.e., indoctrinated us into the way they did things.
They created a “box” for us to live in.
Outside of that box is TRUTH…which sets you free.
If we could stand in the full truth of our being (i.e., who we truly are) — it would totally set us free.
We’d stop struggling. We wouldn’t have much difficulty accomplishing what we want to accomplish. We wouldn’t fight ourselves all that much.
It’s very difficult to get to this truth when the only part of your world you can experience, is through a very narrow vision of what life is.
You have your environment, your circumstances, and your results.
…And you have a very narrow “box” through which you observe or perceive those things.
Your beliefs control your perception.
Your values control your perception.
The wounds you’ve had throughout your lifetime control your perception.
When most people get wounded, they don’t see the “truth” in it. They see the pain in it. Instead of expanding their life, the pain contracts it.
It says, “Don’t do this again…don’t experience that again, because that causes pain.” So their life contracts.
They start to see LESS of what they saw before — until their world becomes very small. It keeps them in a very narrow perception of what’s going on. So they can’t see the truth.
If we’re going to change this in our own life…then one of the things we have to do is begin to understand what the truth looks like.
By studying the laws of the universe, we bring truth into our awareness.
