Leonard Jacobson: The Larger Womb Of The Present Moment


When you were born, you moved from a womb that became too small for you (your mother’s womb),
to a much larger womb ( the world you were being born into).

But you did not have the opportunity to complete that transition. You got caught in the trauma of separation that occurred at birth and instead of entering a world of Oneness, you entered a world of separation.

It was a gradual transition as you joined your parents in the past and future world of the mind. If your parents had been fully present and awake, and not lost in the mind, they could have guided you through the trauma of separation into the present moment. The feeling of separation that arose in the birth process would have subsided and you would have developed within a world of Presence and Oneness. But your parents were not present. They did not know how to guide you into the present moment. Instead they guided you into their world of the mind. It is not their fault. That is what happened to them, and it is passed down, generation to generation.

The whole point of awakening is to return to that larger womb, which is existence itself, revealed through the present moment. You will feel safe. You will feel connected to everything. You will experience Oneness. Now you can evolve into your true nature. Now your true destiny can unfold.

The Third Mystical Law: All is Illusion

This is one of the more baffling mystical truths, because every one of your five senses will tell you otherwise.

We enter illusion when we start asking why. Left to your own imagination, you will more than likely reach into the vast resources of your memory archives and fill the void of “why” with some negative association from your past or negative projection in the present. It’s what we do. We tend to fill voids with something negative – a fear or insecurity.

How do you know why things happen as they do? You don’t. You have no idea and you never will. Much less are you capable of knowing what must take place today in order that certain events unfold one or two years or a decade from now.

Why events happen as they do in your life, from the grandest or most devastating to the most seemingly insignificant, is beyond your ability to know. You can no more distinguish what is significant from what is insignificant, if such a thing as insignificant exists at all. Whether something brings you pain or pleasure, happiness or sadness, is not the arbiter of what really matters, which most of us should have learned by now. Those feelings are just temporary responses to your experiences, and even your responses are illusions. You are happy one day, sad the next, melancholy on the third day, bored on the fourth, ecstatic on the fifth, exhausted on the sixth, and on the seventh day you’re confused about the whole of your life.

To believe that anything can remain perfect, successful, or healthy forever is always just a wishful illusion.

What you can do:

Turn to the higher truths, reminding yourself: “No one has done anything to hurt or reject me. No one can empower me or disempower me. To believe otherwise is an illusion. It can look and feel that way, because of my own personal needs, but I am in charge of my needs. So, I forgive all these people who I believed had deliberately hurt or rejected me. That, too, was an illusion. They never plotted to reject or hurt me. I projected expectations onto them based on my own desires and they failed to live up to my imagined plans for them.”
