Why Codebreaking?

Life can seem like a code  to which someone forgot to give us the key.  It can then seem full  of mystery (and not in a good way).  It can be challenging difficult and frustrating and painful.  And we can't find the key to deciphering it though we try and no one else really seems to know either.   Or we are sidetracked from looking for the code or we are told there isn't one.   Because the life codes are actually within us as well as all around us.  But we need to have some basic information about how you recognise and decipher them.  It isn't that difficult but someone has to tell you.  An  example is learning to listen to our own inner guidance.  This is as fundamental  code and is something that will guide you right even when  other people or our programmed beliefs from childhood and from what we have learned tells us differently.  If we do learn to listen though and act on our inner guidance and do it consistently it will lead us right.   Every time.  So that is a true code:  to learn to listen to ourselves.

But in families that are stressful and troubled which  the latest research indicates is probably most families, we grow up disconnected from ourselves.  So we are not able to listen to ourselves.  We are then lost.  Our heads are full of information and mis-information.  And we cannot tell the difference.  True knowing is experiential. It is what Peter Levine an animal physiologist and traumatologist calls the "felt sense".  It is what Aristotle called wisdom: knowledge- in- action.  It is personal knowing which no one can give you and no one can take away.  Knowing the true code is not just an intellectual thing like knowing who was the 15th president of the United States.  It is knowing in our heart our gut it is experiential personal knowing.   If we know something in this way we will act on it.  Knowledge which has no application in life has no value.  If something is right it works if it is wrong it doesn't  Truth works. Lies don't.

So why codebreaking?  It is so we can have successful fulfilled lives  instead of feeling that life is incomprehensible  and disturbing.  When we start codebreaking we start feeling that we are part of life. And part of a greater Life.  We feel connected.  We feel connected to the animals and plants around us, we feel connected to ourselves and  to other people.  There is a felt sense of belonging not as for many people a sense of isolation and alienation. And a terrifying crushing loneliness.  Like we are looking at life through a plate glass window.

Instead you know that when the birds come in the morning they have come to say hello to you.  That when the koala turns up outside your front door and starts his song it is because he is letting you know that he is there so you can come out and say Hi to him. Or as I do sing him my song.  It is knowing that the magpie sitting on the dog pen with fishing line wound around his foot he has come to let you know that his foot is sore and he expects you to do something about it.  Of course you do.

The spiritual law is written in our hearts and it is evident around us in Nature. It is also contained in what is called the Bible  though there is a true code to it being revealed.  It can only be discerned by a spiritually awakened heart.  This is a true code.  And what is revealed are the spiritual laws the codes for an effective life. Spiritual laws work and religious laws don't.    The spiritual law says we don't feel whole unless we are connected to the natural environment because we are part of those living organisms and beings and they are part of us.  For us to be whole we have to be in union with the living beings that comprise our biosphere.  One of the great Native American chiefs Sitting Bull wrote in a letter  to the American Government about the destruction of the land:  if people get too far from nature they get crazy.  That is absolutely true.  So the answer to the question Why codebreaking? is so that we can learn the true codes and make life the successful joyful adventure it is supposed to be and  learn to recognise false codes so we are not misled..
