The first ray of light breaking through the clandestine grip of the story on us, was the realization that it is just a story. Then came our decision to change the story to empower our lives with a different version of the tale. We decided to reprogram ourselves with a story of our choice, not a cheap universal copy. The day we start dictating our first program to ourselves was the day we declared an open war on the parasite. It is the day we said “we know you are here and now we have the weapon to fight you”. Every time, we change our perception to something of our choosing, we assert that we are aware and alive and we wound the parasite a little.
But let’s not be delusional; we have not killed the parasite. It is too strong because it has been feeding on us for a very long time and we have lost a lot of energy to it over the years. But every minute we stand aware, we win a small battle, and we weaken it.
Gradually, we gain more power over it. Once we started on this path, we became what the old Toltec called “warriors”, because we are in constant battle against our mortal enemy. However, I don’t want to give the impression that we are suffering all the time because of that war.
The warriors’ way of life is very interesting; warriors don’t mind losing a battle, or lapsing in their judgment. If they fall down, they just collect themselves and start anew. Every new moment, is a new start and a new chance to win another battle. They understand that there is no point WHATSOEVER in lamenting about what went wrong before, because this is exactly what the parasite wants you to do. Just try to be aware at the next moment, and the next and the next. The parasite at some point will have to surrender, because it is not used to struggle to subdue you. And then you will be free from it forever.
The style of living like that is called, an impeccable life, which does not mean “perfect”, but it means doing your best at every moment without caring about what the results are. It is just focusing on doing the right thing, right NOW. And if you cannot do it at any moment, that does not matter, just do your best at the next moment and so on. To reach that stage takes a long time, but you can start by trying to be aware as much as possible now, and not getting upset any time you cannot do it. A big challenge, especially for the latter part ;). Just be impeccable now.
