Knowing what we’re all about is an evolving process. What we think we are or know today isn’t necessarily what will be tomorrow. There’s always more, and the unfolding of that discovery is part of the mystery and joy of human life.
What we find determines how we live and what we do, and the outer identity we create that others can see and relate to. Unfortunately, those images we project often change dramatically over the course of our lives.
I admit to undergoing such changes. Perhaps you have as well.
While we’re always continually evolving, we now live in a time of even more dramatic change. Those changes are seen everywhere, not the least of which are in the social, scientific and technological ones that have taken our world by storm.
It is all part of a process I attribute these to the energies of Ascension, that will ultimately end duality and empower us to give birth to the promised Golden Age. The energetic bonds of old ways and patterns are being stretched by a massive influx of light, triggering a loosening of the status quo that once allowed us to live comfortable, complacent lives.
Part of that discomfort is of our own making, the result of our self-absorbed and self-aggrandizing ways, assailing us with problems we’ve long ignored that are now getting to the point of no return.
These energies are forcing us to take the next step in human evolution by more effectively integrating our inner aspects into the affairs of this outer world.
As I see it, it requires a multi-faceted approach. Knowing ourselves. Purifying our energy fields. Connecting with our souls and inviting them to participate more directly in our daily affairs. Then putting it all to work
Peace is both byproduct of our cultivation efforts as well as essential tool to deal with those things — in us and in our world — where energies are in such conflict so as impair this alignment.
Some of that effort calls us to act upon our individual inspirations, often turning them into missions that make a difference. At other times, it may call for an expression of creativity or pursuit of passions. In still others, just to become more aware of our interactions with others and do things that enhance the peace of all.
It isn’t necessary to see any of this from a metaphysical perspective. One can quite easily do all this without ever shifting out of a very mainstream view on life.
Nevertheless, it is the EFFECT of their intersection that facilitates our evolution — the introspection, the self-awareness, the sensitivity to our inner processes, the questioning, the consideration of our actions on others, the moderation of our thoughts, emotions and actions, and the effort to live with a little more loving kindness to create a better life, and a better world.
Doing so with peace, and an eye toward moving beyond our problems to where we want to go, are simply ways to accelerate that process and ameliorate the impact of the problems that crop up along the way.
Our evolution is not a test of whether we deal with these difficulties. It is an applied lesson in HOW to do so in a way that allows us to create lives that serve us, as well as the world.
So as we move forward together, don’t be surprised if I continue to jump back and forth among these different elements. If so, please bear with me.
It hopefully will help you to see and consciously participate in the bigger picture, not only of your own evolution, but also where your life fits within and affects the collective consciousness that creates the reality of our world.
For I believe that you have an important role to play in the coming years. You will not only hold the light, but also be part of an advance guard that will show others through your actions how to apply these lessons in ways that don’t put their egos in conflict with others’, much less the intentions of the souls that enervate them.
That awareness will allow you to help co-create a new common reality that better manifests your vision of what our world can be.
You are being asked to live consciously at the intersection of mainstream and metaphysical, integrating both inner and outer aspects of your being as you go about your affairs. I suspect you’ve already made that choice and are working to improve your ability to do so.
I will do my best to hopefully enhance your effort and empower you to deal with the things that hold you back. You in turn will add your piece, no matter how large or small, to a better tomorrow for us all.
God bless you indeed.
