"The insanity of the collective egoic mind, amplified by science and technology, is rapidly taking our species to the brink of disaster. Evolve or die: that is our only choice now."
This brilliant quote by Master Eckhart really illustrates the looming crossroads we as individuals are currently trudging through as well as the recent experience of the collective ego of the planet.
You are either awake and aware in some capacity and dealing with the astonishing changes before us. Or, still slumbering along clueless and really having to deal with some very dramatic, life changing events. That crevice and chasm in conscious awareness is expanding rapidly at this time.
What can you do about it? Well the answers lie within. You certainly can be assisted by any number of books or blogs or video teachings that you resonate with and align with that keep your nose above the water so to speak but the real power comes as it always has...from going within. In many ways if you have not realized this yet then the loving Creator that connects us all is most likely trying to teach this to you and it may not always be a comfortable lesson!
We are indeed all connected not separate, and so the collective healing of all of us as a whole body is vital. We emanate a certain energy and consciousness as well, and as individuals we each play a very key role in the greater good as we fight to stay above the fray! To the degree that we get the hang of it as individuals, is exponentially to the degree that we assist God and humanity as human angels on the ground. As one goes, so goes the rest in a greater, swifter manner then the human mind can comprehend! And so it is that we must be diligent in bringing our thoughts and our actions toward the lighter, less dense energies.
When the energies of our own experiences and those of loved ones who suffer make this difficult, it is always a good practice to just focus on your breath, prayer and meditation, in the practice of being still and certainly of being Present and in the Now for as long as you are able to.
I'm sure I don't need to tell you that I'm sorry to say, that is easier said then done.
And that is because it is against our nature for eons but also, to be quite frank, because of what is being pushed and programmed to us by the opposition of the New Earth. It permeates quite successfully the collective consciousness of humanity to make the road a little more bumpy. Science and technology have made this alot easier of course one would simply need to observe what is being churned out through our 24/7 news channels, our political elections to the power that those tools brings to tell people what to think.
So turn it off. Practice silence unless it makes you feel good! And now and then stop to view the big picture...what emotions and stories are driving us as a whole? And what part are you playing in with your own fear, thoughts, viewpoints?
"Most people treat the present moment as if it were an obstacle that they need to overcome. Since the present moment is Life itself, it is an insane way to live." - Eckhart Tolle
As individuals it is chronic condition in our societies that no matter our financial or physical state we fret and worry about tomorrow or wallow in regret of yesterday. And our collective ego and mind is driven by fear of what boogeymen are around the corner, Avian flu, the War on Terror, the economic collapse and so it goes. How much energy are we truly giving to today...this gorgeous, most wonderous today?
Sarah Ban Breathnach said “Grace is available for each of us every day - our spiritual daily bread - but we've got to remember to ask for it with a grateful heart and not worry about whether there will be enough for tomorrow.”
Being in the Now and living in sacred presence no matter what challenges are put before you eventually will make you realize worry and doubt and fear and anxiety are mostly figments of your imagination and creation! All of it is a product of habitual anticipation in your thinking of what may or may not be up around the corner and the real tradegy is what beauty you therefore have truly missed along the way.
Eckhart: "I would say about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. It causes a serious leakage of vital energy."
We need this vital energy at this time. This negative energy is polluting our existence in all forms. Most forcefully in the U.S. through stress. Stress of the overworked. Stress of the poor. Stress of the sick. We are seeing the effects of loved ones all around us. Just stop and take notes and observe the breakdowns all around you including in your own life and you will be amazed at truly how many people are facing a life changing situation of some kind at this time.
One might say well that's just life and that is partly true. But this is different. This is sudden onset. And as sensitives we all know this has a very powerful current beneath it as well and its not just happen-stance. We too feel the body aches, the fatigue, the lack of concentration or memory, or sleepiness and sleeplessness!
"So, tell me something we don't know I hear you say!" "Help me out here!" And for some time now I too was searching and asking the same things as you ...as I meandered around in the desert as usual going from crisis to crisis. I couldn't really help you when I was looking for answers myself now could I?
All I can currently truly offer even now is to say you are not alone. We are all in this together. All IS as it should be. So release your judgement, your frustration, your doubt, and your anger with how hard this is or how this is all playing out. Or how hard it has been for how long. It does not serve you or others around you and only depletes your vital energy further. Even if your life is plodding along with ease even that may be difficult to enjoy when others around you are suffering so. As that certain something churns around in your soul, deep within your Being.
Be reverent to this Shift.
It is a mighty one! We are all clearing negative energies and patterns not only for ourself and our loved ones but for the previous 9 generations! It is a mighty task at hand. A beloved mentor once told me that we will all be surprised by the mighty Light and spiritual leaders who may fall with this transformation that is underway. That is not be be expressed in fear...but reverence. Do not take this too lightly! But yet, walking lightly is one of the most helpful things you can do! Carry your funny bone with you always! Rest often and more then you need to or less then you need to, sleep is changing and you need not resist it in any form just listen to your body!
But most of all....Stay present. Not even the greatest, most wise spiritual leaders know what's in store with this quantum Shift of the Ages!
Accept that and just Be. Be Present. Be at Peace. Be content that the Great Spirit flows through and around you and you are threaded into the mighty Web of life and will always be protected!
