Raising Consciousness: How to Let Go of Positionalities & Having an Opinion
Start Your Day on a HIGH NOTE!
Inspirational teachings from Dr. David R. Hawkins for a Spiritually Awakening World
This week’s Spiritual Teachings from Dr. David R. Hawkins is a really fun one to watch on how to let go of positionalities, the juice that we get from the ego, and having to have an opinion about anything!
For spiritual seekers, it is the inner decision to renunciate all positionalities to God and let go of the vanity that you “know” anything relative to ultimate reality.
Renunciation is internal.
To renounce and be willing and surrender out of Devotion to God one’s gratification and satisfaction from one’s mental gyrations.
- To juice revenge.
- To reduce resentment.
- To juice self-pity.
- At the same time not make them wrong.
When we let go of these positionalities we let go of our attachments to them but not out of guilt and not make them wrong.
God is found in simplicity.
This is not to say you can’t have your “grumblings”.
To have someone to listen to your “grumblings” is a form of LOVE, so don’t make them wrong and don’t feel guilty about them. Just become aware that they are there and learn to let go of them and your attachment to them.
Listen to the full lecture as Dr. Hawkins humorously explains what positionalities are and how to transcend them. You can purchase this full lecture on DVD here.
What Are Positionalities?
Positionalities are opposites, also known as dualities like:
- You vs. Me
- Us vs. Them
- Black vs. White
- Good vs. Evil
- Love vs. Hate
However, the challenge is not to make yourself wrong or feel guilty about taking a position or having an opinion. We are human, after all, and subject to the narcissistic core of the ego. Again, the ego is an aspect of Divinity, too, so don’t make the ego wrong or feel guilty about having one.
A more advanced understanding is to let go of aversions and attractions ultimately.
How Can You Let Go of Positionalities and Having Opinions?
A basic 1st step in consciousness would be to become aware that they even exist within you. Notice that you have positionalities about some topic.
How does that positionality feel to you?
Are you feeling any of the following while holding the position:
- wanting to feel right to prove others wrong,
- fearful, or
Any of these feelings are of lower consciousness and likely “hold no truth.” They are coming from a clouded form of perception with a minimal perspective and lack of comprehensive understanding.
Don’t feel bad for feeling bad. Become aware that suppressed and repressed emotions within you present themselves to create thoughts and limiting beliefs.
The next step in letting go and “letting GOD” of the positionalities would be to step into courage on the topic. Are you willing to let go of the positionality and step into the courage required to accept you don’t know the full story and that it’s OK to let it go?
COURAGE calibrates at 200 on the Map of Consciousness® and is the 1st consciousness level that holds power. This is where problems can begin to be solved, and untangling positionalities can begin.
“You can’t solve a problem from the level of consciousness that created it.” ∼ Albert Einstein
It’s significant to understand that you don’t have to become a Saint (LOC 570) or a Buddha (LOC 1,000) to learn how to let go of positionalities.
To become NEUTRAL on all topics is an attainable higher consciousness level at 250 on the Map.
This is my recommended “go-to” level of consciousness for letting go of positionalities.
Take yourself with a grain of salt. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Within all of us is the vindictive judge.
To transcend something, you have to accept it.
Acceptance is a mighty “go-to” level at 350 on the Map that can really begin to unravel the positionalities.
To accept it, you have to get off of the positionalities and rightness and wrongness of the thing.
Everything is as it is.
Everything is on the stepping stone of the evolution of its own consciousness. Consciousness evolves and expresses itself in form throughout its evolution.
If you look around the manifest world of form, you’ll notice the vast Map of Consciousness®. This is your opportunity to put into context where you are in the vast field and who you want to be and become within this vast field.
You hear the phrase, “let it go!” often. That’s all well and good, but how do you actually do it?
Thankfully for all of us, Dr. David R. Hawkins has developed the “mechanism of letting go” that he spells out in his book, Letting Go, the Pathway to Surrender.
I have also created a consciousness podcast and videocast titled Your Weekly Dose of Higher Consciousness that is intended to help you all along your journey of raising your level of consciousness and learning how to let go of positionalities and build a better life.
