Surviving These Volatile Times

Things are getting crazy out there. In case you hadn’t noticed, the politics of hate have taken over our airwaves, social media and personal interactions.

It’s as if people just can’t get enough of what they already believe.  If they don’t have a belief yet, they soon will after being bombarded by Deep State narratives fed to them by a ravenous media.

Well, this highly charged political environment is being fed from sources left and right just itching for a fight to see who can radically change the course of our country.

 

 

Temperature Rising

If that weren’t bad enough, people are going nuts. As our solar system moves deeper into the photon belt, the energies bombarding our world are too high for many to handle. Some can’t take it any more and flip out in one way or another.

These mental and emotional outbursts contribute to the scourge of mass murders filling the news.  Some are blamed on mental illness. Others point to Deep State operations. Still more on radicalization to commit terrorism.

Always, though, it is the afflicted individual within that is driven to strike out in such heinous ways, unable or unwilling to restrain their passions or govern their  actions to peacefully coexist with others.

Not everyone responds to the energies in the same way. But everyone responds in some way, shifting, changing, stretching the boundaries of who they know themselves to be and how they relate to the world.

The increased conflict throughout the land is a direct result of these intense energies.  Our polarities pull us farther and farther apart. The energies cause us to hold more tightly to our beliefs and fight to impose them on our world.  Unfortunately, everyone else wants the same thing, resulting in the inevitable and ever-intensifying conflicts.

We don’t have to get dragged into their battles. But we usually do, hanging around on the periphery until something strikes a nerve, and in we go to join the fray.

Consciousness Brings Choice

Consciousness, though, allows you a choice — to see the effort to provoke you, to recognize your triggers and the responses they elicit, to seek out the source of those triggers and defuse or work around them as best you can.

Best of all, it gives us a chance to restrain ingrained patterns and impulsive behavior so we can have a choice how to act toward others.

To exercise that consciousness, however, we cannot succumb to the agitated thoughts and emotions that goad us into hurting, suppressing or antagonizing those who don’t see it our way.

Neither can we get so caught up in the righteousness of our cause that we lose sight of the fact that none of us can clearly see where we’re going, much less how we’re going to get there, yet ultimately we’ve got to find a way to get there together.

So why are we fighting?

In short, to me the problems of today are caused or exacerbated by the human failure to evolve, to become more than we are now and let go of the petty differences we use to keep ourselves apart.  And yes, the conflicting visions of what we want for our society are just some of those differences.

Consciousness will be needed to move beyond them. Peace will be essential to allow that consciousness to blossom.

Maybe there is a silver lining to this approaching Armageddon, one that will allow us all to grow a little more toward what we can be. I pray we find it soon, and have the will to implement it before it’s too late.

God bless you indeed.
