Recommendation – How to read the words in the New Dictionary:
A word is a vessel through which essence, energy passes. The word is never the thing itself.
What is the real “thing”? It is good to answer this question in silence.
Therefore the invitation to this dictionary is “tricky”; it seems like it tries to replace one “definition” with another “definition” but it does not. This dictionary is an opportunity to look at a word from a different perspective than we are used to. And ask what is the essence of this word, coming from the mystery? From nature? From the inconceivable knowing that everything is one, everything is motion and I am a part of it?
From here you will find that the new “definition” sometimes sounds poetic or even irritating to the mind, because it cannot understand it. It’s OK. Let the words be a tool and listen to the energy that passes through them. That’s exactly what we came here to do.
Coming out of the knowing that everything is connected and everything is in motion:
Giving in happens when I choose to live the natural motion of life that flows through me, that flows with me always, and when I agree to truly participate in life as it is. In the new world, giving in is not about a time or a place, because it happens in every given moment. It is the agreement to see the fullness and completeness in every moment, it is the agreement to see conditions, definitions and habits that I used to believe in, and ask to see them differently. All the time. In every conflict I experience, through every pain I feel, in every person I meet. Giving in is saying “yes” fully and completely to everything, even when my thoughts tell me otherwise.
The reality created: I am ready to get closer even when I don’t fully understand, even if it doesn’t exactly match the pictures in my head, even if I have no interest or control over the results. I say “yes” and remember that nothing is as it seems, because what is seen is just definitions and shapes. And then I can live within the one energy that flows in everything and I can stop calculating and start living.
“Where are you? Here I am.”
We got used to thinking that
Giving in is the ability to remain with something for a long time. To invest in it, to cultivate it, to overcome obstacles and fears. In the old world, giving in is to trust in something until the end. To develop and remove defenses. I give in to the way, to the work, to the teacher, because I know that I will benefit from it, that it will help me grow, that there will be positive results, that it will assist me in achieving what I am searching for and think I need.
I give in from a feeling of love and obligation and it makes me feel good, like I am giving my all, leaving my comfort zone and discovering new things about myself. And then I feel like I am progressing, that I have done the work, that I am shedding traits that were bothering me. And this makes me feel happiness and satisfaction.
The reality created: I give in only to those things that I believe will yield a positive result, when really I have no way of knowing ahead of time what any given encounter will bring. And so I continue to live within a limited framework of identity. I am sure that I know myself but I can only see what the mind shows me, which is never truly outside of my comfort zone.
