We now come to the end and beginning of the power of wealth, opportunity, wisdom, and well-being. As you have seen, there is an interconnectivity among these powerful thoughts and actions. They are transformational and simple yet demand attention and engagement just like anything we truly embrace. Well-being is not a concept I was consciously taught. I sense it was just assumed but that can no longer be the case.
It’s simply defined as the state of being happy, healthy and prosperous. Again I want to reiterate that all states of consciousness are available to us and fluctuate depending on outside and inside influences. Stages however, are the structure we reside in and take years to move from and to. I can be in a stage of development where I see everything through the lens of strive and drive while still experiencing a lazy relaxing day.
Well-being, as I’m wanting to define it is not only a state but one of the highest stages of development we can attain. It allows us to live in the arena or on the platform of love, joy, peace and enlightenment. It is that level of consciousness that allows us to see through the created illusions of right/wrong, good/bad, success/failure. It’s base emotion is unconditional love which allows the dance of life to be embraced no matter what.
Most of us have entered this state of consciousness from time to time but it’s not where we live and move and have our being. It’s a state that reminds us of the possibilities that can transcend the impossibilities and connect us to the higher stages that invite us into them through the momentary states we sometimes experience. The traits are vitality, aliveness, spontaneity, creativity, playfulness, and freedom. It’s a childlike awareness.
Why would the Christ say “whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it”; was he talking about terminal adulthood which objectifies so much of everything, closes the doors of perception and shuts off creativity, aliveness and play? Was this a directive to a higher level of consciousness that we begin with, lose, and find again? Is this state and stage of consciousness part of our evolutionary trajectory?
In ancient times the King/Queen’s court always had a Court Jester or Holy Fool to entertain, express the joy of life, and poke fun at the seriousness of the court. This provided a balance to the kingdom by breaking the rules, opening an outlet for forbidden insights and feelings, thereby providing balance and sanity. This is the well-being that’s always needed to provide space in our lives for lightheartedness, love and liberation.
As we walk through the looking glass of Well-being we’ll be embracing Co-Creativity, Love, Optimizing and Prosperity. We’ll see how this is the Alpha and Omega of Life and how, when we embrace it and the other steps of the journey, we travel the not so well worn path toward New Being. The invitation from the Holy Fool is to enter in and dance!
