Most of what has been written on this subject comes down on one of two sides: 1) praise of Jenner for his courage or 2) sadness that he is so psychologically ill and self-loathing as to mutilate his body and prostitute (no pun intended) himself. Allow me to introduce a metaphysical approach to the Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner story.
We’ve all heard the terms reincarnation, holographic universe, transmigration of the soul, and deja vous. Such terms are an effort to understand all that we, as of yet, do not comprehend about the human experience. We also have heard the term “paradigm shift” in relation to the changes our culture…even the world…seem to be going through. It’s no accident that the human potential movement and countless self-help books speak to an “expanding human consciousness.” And finally, thanks to Albert Einstein, and others, we know there is no such thing as “time” as we humans experience it.
Whether its Bruce Jenner thinking he is a woman in a man’s body (transgender), or a perfectly healthy person thinking they are disabled in an able body (transabled) or a man thinking he is a dog inside a human body (transspecies)…all of which have occurred lately…let’s consider these not as anomalies but instead as freeze frames in a grander movie.
As we awaken to an ever-expanding human consciousness, allowing us to comprehend the previously incomprehensible, we are literally transiting dimensions perceived as different realities.
What if there is no time and it’s all a hologram? What if reincarnation exists and its possible to have fragmented memory of another lifetime? What if data travels on many more frequencies than we have been cognizant of and suddenly we’ve opened to additional frequencies? What if these people are experiencing a memory or simultaneous reality? What if Bruce Jenner remembers being a woman because he was one? What if the man who thinks he is a dog is picking up transmissions on a never before received frequency? What if the disabled person is disabled in a simultaneous reality? What if these people are partially awakened to a more expanded human consciousness and are evaluating what they are experiencing as a freeze frame rather than the whole movie. What if they are acting out their perceptions in the moment when, in reality, none of it is of the moment?
I could have written about Bruce Jenner’s mental illness or Caitlin Jenner’s courage. Instead, I prefer to try and see beyond and above the fray.
Perhaps the greatest gift we can give one another during times of profound change is a hand to hold and a reassurance that if we just hold tight, we’ll make it through.
Note: Steve and I both regularly write to the blog. Today, we weighed in on the Jenner story with two very different viewpoints. You can read Steve’s post below.
