From the article The New Earth I (under The Lightworker Series) published by Aurelia on www.jeshua.net:
‘Karma is nothing but the natural harmonizer for the swings in which your consciousness engages. You release your ties to the karmic cycle when your consciousness finds its anchor point in the motionless center of the seesaw. This center is the exit point for the karmic cycle. The predominant feeling tones in this center are stillness, compassion and quiet joy. Greek philosophers had premonitions of this state which they called ataraxia: imperturbability.
Judgment and fear are the energies that most take you off-center. As you release these energies more and more, you become more quiet and open inside. You truly enter another world, another plane of consciousness.’
I have also run across this term in Buddhist thought, the same state of mental and emotional BE-ingness that is often called by the same name, or also (in its more expansive or ecstatic version) ‘nirvana’. I am also familiar with the terms ‘satori’ and ‘samadhi’ as incorporating the aspect of detachment from the material world (and its lower dimensional hijinx), which is an indispensable quality one must have in order to BE ‘imperturbable’.
As long as one allows oneself to be ‘jacked around’ by lower dimensional emotions, attachments, and circumstances, one cannot achieve lasting inner peace. And getting oneself out of that vulnerable state is QUITE the serious challenge – maybe even the greatest a human being can ever face! According to the above-cited article, when one finally chooses to take those first steps towards achieving that elusive state of imperturbability, ‘. . . great upheavals may occur in the area of relationships and work. More often than not, your whole lifestyle turns topsy-turvy. This is only natural, from our perspective, since inner changes are always the forerunner of changes in your outer world. Your consciousness creates the material reality you dwell in. It is always that way.’
I sincerely wish you. . . . Happy Trails!!! Just keep in mind that YES, regardless of what the nay-sayers might throw at you to slow you down or stop you in your quest for a better, more ecstatic life, it IS possible to achieve. Definitely not easy, no. But what else is there for us to DO at this point if we seek lasting inner peace and joy, and the capacity to build the New Earth without all those old pesky lower dimensional ‘issues’ holding us down??? Food for thought. . . . .
