MASK by Dr. Ram Sharma
i have to change my old mask,
the colour of its face has become old,
there are several lines in it,
i used to wear this mask,
to hide my animal feelings and cruelties,
now looks i can be caught,
i fear from the cracks of mask,
there shouldn`t come my animality,
now i am in tension,
now i will come to my reality
We all hide behind a mask hoping nobody will see what lies underneath – a pure divine soul. The pure divine soul is happy every moment of every day. People who are constantly happy are labeled as unstable. In fact, there is currently a name for people who are happy. It is called Angelman Syndrome or AS. Angelman Syndrome is defined as “a neuro-genetic disorder characterized by severe intellectual and developmental disability, sleep disturbance, seizures, hand flapping and frequent laughter or smiling and usually a happy demeanor.” Wikipedia further states “people with AS are sometimes known as angels because of the syndromes name and because of their youthful, happy appearance.”
Society doesn’t understand how people could be happy in this world so most people jump to the conclusion there is something neurologically wrong with these happy people. Is it possible the mind altering drugs advertised on the commercial for Angelman Syndrome are creating the adverse side effects of seizures, hand flapping and insomnia? Is it possible those diagnosed people really love to smile, laugh and are genuinely happy? Is it possible that many people on our planet are misdiagnosed and placed on psycho stimulant medication that confirms the public’s belief that they are crazy and a menace to society? Is it possible these people who have found joy in a crazy world are really angels here to teach us lessons?
People put on masks to fit into society because one of our biggest fears is to be ostracized and alone. Mommy, daddy, neighbor, Scout leader, employee, boss, friend, husband, wife, coach, cook, driver, daughter, son and social director are some of the roles we play on a daily basis. We wear a different hat for each role and our personalities change according to the character we are playing. Our boss expects us to act one way, our spouse expects an entirely different persona and our friends anticipate another identity. We conform to societies expectations because we have been conditioned to act a certain way from a young age. This brainwashing has caused us profound angst and it has become challenging to laugh and smile.
Before we come to planet earth, we make a contract with the Universe. In this agreement, we concur to bring karma, desires that were not completed in past lives. That karma is buried in our subconscious and when we are born we have no recollection of this commitment. Our inner child, or subconscious, creates situations in our lives to remove the karma. It usually occurs in the early childhood years. Most of the time, the events are unpleasant and when they arise, they immediately form a belief such as “I’m not good enough.” If we are able to stay with the belief “I am not good enough”, for example, our inner child is happy because he/she is protecting us. However, if we go against this belief and feel we are good enough, our inner child sets off a cacophony of alarm bells and begins creating disease in the cells of our body. This particular belief is associated with the posterior pituitary gland. This gland secretes chemicals to the hypothalamus and alerts the amygdala. The amygdala deals with our emotions and manages our response to fear and stress. When disease enters the posterior pituitary gland, it puts our amygdala on high alert over and over again like a broken record. As a result, people will be on a roller coaster of fear and anger responding inappropriately to incidences that cross their path.
We learn to adapt to the will of our inner child. Our inner child is extremely strong and does everything in its power to protect us. In reality, our inner child is sabotaging our hopes and dreams. Picture your inner child as a toddler or small child because that is truly what it is. Our inner child has never grown up because the emotional fears, worries, jealousy, greed, anger, sadness and more are contained within that small frame. Let’s release the chains that bind your inner child.
Tell your inner child you love him/her. Thank your inner child for protecting you all these years. Give your inner child a hug. Ask your inner child to put all the fears one by one in a basket. Do the same thing with worries, anger and other limiting beliefs that are keeping your inner child hostage. Hold your inner child tight and comfort him/her as tears pour or screams of release occur. Take St. Germaine’s Violet Torch and burn the basket and all of its contents. Watch the flames burn to ash and be elated as the ash travels up to the Universe to be transmuted. Now, comes the fun part. Have your inner child write or draw its true desires, any wish it wants. Place these wishes on the floor temporarily. Your inner child is allowed to put as many wishes as he/she wants on these papers. Once this is accomplished, use Archangel Gabrielle’s (or any Divine being) golden bubbles of fun. Place each piece of written desire inside a bubble and witness the bubbles disappearing into the Cosmos with your special message. Hug your inner child and hug yourself.
Your mask is finally ready to come off. Go to the mirror, remove the mask and look closely at the beautiful soul who stands before you. There is no need for any more hats and roles to play for you are perfect in every way. Congratulate yourself for the courage and strength you have just demonstrated. People may still judge you, gossip about you or be angry with you. Just send your love to these people and thank them for bringing you to this high state of consciousness. We are all mirrors of each other. What we don’t like about others usually exists within ourselves. It is a great blessing that our so-called enemies bring this epiphany to our attention so we can continuously put those thoughts in a basket to be torched with the Violet Flame and replace them with our golden bubbles of fun!
