What is Driving The Boat?
By Arthur Buchanan
What is driving the boat? I would have to say you or the person behind the wheel, why then does everyone look back at the wake and think that it some how has control over what or the way you are driving, when overall the wake is not or has not been able to control you while you are driving the boat. Why then would you give it the waves behind you any power over you? That is a great question and one worth answering.
It goes like this when the ego controls your mind you let the tribe tell you what to do and this is when your ego rears it's ugly head, because this is now your pride, your ego pride and this can at times can be confusing this is why. You were taught to always see what your ego thinks first, now this is very wrong. Your ego is from the material world and to transcend this we must reach the spiritual world and this is when we grow and know that you are driving the boat and the wake does not affect you.
You are your own captain of your boat and once you realize that the wake has no control over you and that would be the ego or as we so kindly put it the wake the waves behind you.
Now know that you can transcend the ego that confines and move up to the spiritual world and this is were you really find yourself and know that you are truly connected at the hip with God and every other thing in the universe.
Yes we are all connected and yes we all came from the universal power that created everything in this world, everything that you can see and the spiritual world, what you can't see but intuitively you some how know that you belong to the universal mind. That beats your heart grows your fingernails and even keeps the world hurling at a million miles a minute with any no room for error.
So once, you know that you know that you are connected with everyone and everything, we all came from the same place, and we are all going back to the NO-thing where we came from. This is how we know that we are driving the boat, we are burrying the ego in the past that is behind you, and it never really had any power over you.
Only the power that you and your material world ego would have you believe that you are separate from everyone and that you must be better than the next girl and show them how to drive their boat, but that are both of your egos fighting to see who is better, you or them?
Then it hits you are not the past or the wake or the waves and you are never going to give them any more control of your life. You are going in the direction of God and he knows you are driving your boat with her help you can't be wrong and when the ego rears it's ugly head, it's time to get on with the masters plans. That would be the spiritual world, which you now know that you are finally home from all the worries of life and you know that you plus God is plenty and that will never change and yes I mean eternally, so drive your boat and know you are never alone!
