In order for your dreams to occur – your dreams must become a singular focus. This life has existed within polarity for so very long, the navigation of thought out of that focus will require some decided effort. Consistency is the call. Belief and intent are the process. As a people we are moving out of polarity and into unity.
This process seemingly divides our thinking, yet what is occurring is a “culling”. Unity does not mean we will all look, dress and act the same. Unity is a realization of our Godhood; an acceptance and utilization of the One Thought from which we spring; an understanding of the power we hold as a collective. It is Unity as opposed to Division.
We are stepping out of a consciousness that accepts and operates with “more”, “better than”, and “deserving” and into equality. We not only agree that we should all have running water and health care, but we will accept nothing else. We not only understand that war is a self destructive policy, but we will refuse to participate. We will come up with alternative, collaborative solutions.
Our entire existence has been operating as if the truth was “us” against “them” and “right” as opposed to “wrong”. No longer. We are moving into us.
As we progress, the changes felt in this physical plane will be experienced physically. We will become more aware of and sensitive to fluctuations in energy. We will honor, respond to and speak of “something in the air”. We will discontinue the separation of our body’s reactions from what is occurring in our minds and hearts. Oneness is happening on a global and microscopic scale, simultaneously.
The OWS (Occupy Wall Street) Movement was perhaps the initially blatant example of worldwide unification and it won’t be the last. As bank executives from numerous countries resign on a daily basis, we can feel the shift.
We are doing this, and the preponderance of hope and belief in our own ability, is the fuel beneath the flame. We are realizing our own power.
There is no reason to fear what may appear threatening or foreign. We are in control and our path to a unified, mutually beneficial future is assured. The ball is rolling, it is picking up speed, and we are on our way.
Announcements of disruptions and change in leadership and method are par for this course we’ve chosen. Panic and fear will not serve us. What will assist this transition will be an open heart and an acceptance of different. We are together stepping into a new consciousness. We are creating a new world. Doing so with love in our hearts will quickly propel us into the life we’ve only dreamed was possible.
If we understand that change is on the horizon, we can more comfortably appreciate the view. Things may not appear the same around us, yet within us we have not lost anything. We are love.
We are divine masters and we have chosen and were chosen to be here to facilitate this shift. We are only now beginning to realize our individual and collective power.
Focus and unyielding attention to the end result are our tools. See the world you desire, and retain that view as the backdrop to all of your activities. You are love and the greatness of your truth peeks out when you are sure of yourself, loving, generous, kind and expansive.
Negative propaganda and temporary conditions of hardship are no longer effective on one such as you. You are beyond manipulation. Your light has illuminated the path we are on.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
The truth that is you
Love is recognition of truth. Love is a witnessing of that divine spark that is you. Love is a remembering. It is a remembering from where you spring. Within each piece of life there resides a seed. It is love.
There are some you will encounter and they are the gardeners – shining light and sprinkling water they help your love to grow. You will seek to be around these beings as when you are with them, you feel nourished.
There are others who seem to squash your seed of love before it ever blossoms. They are more challenging than nurturing. Here are some of your greatest teachers. In their presence, you come to understand how strong your love is and what you are capable of. Without them, you would never have known.
Just as each seed prefers specific conditions in which to flourish, so do each of us. The soil, the light, the temperature and location all have an impact on the eventual plant. Each appears different – a tomato is not a water lily, yet both began as seeds.
Love is like that. The expression, the feeling, the look, the sound, the place of love is as varied as we are.
The possibility for love is present in every seed – there are none of us unlovable. The definition of love cannot be spoken or written, it must be breathed.
You know love. I cannot tell you when or where or who or how you will know, but to know is your reason for being.
Against all odds, love emerges. It is that inner light we hope will brighten the room. We wish to find it in each other and come to finally understand that it is not there. Missed chances, failed relationships, lost loves are the stories we all share.
We’ve been looking in all the wrong places. Love isn’t found in another, but reflected there. It is the reflection of our own heart. When it is love that you feel for you, you will again and again feel it in each reflection.
Love is who you are. This is what you have come to do. We are rich, poor, healthy, sick, weak, or strong – this physical life offers up numerous opportunities to love anyway. Just love. You are the only one there is of you. This is it. The time is now.
Look into your own eyes. Fall in love. It is a fearless thing to do. Without reason and holding nothing back, just love.
Then, having done so, look around. You will see a world of love seeds, just waiting for your light so that they too can blossom.
You are the one we are waiting for.
The Evolution of You
There is a chemical drive that keeps us repeating behavior patterns over and over. It is every much an addiction, as powerful as heroin. We are each stuck in our own personality “hamster wheels”, not necessarily because we are enjoying the way they spin, but because we can’t seem to step off gracefully and stay off. Something else eventually happens to catch us, and we find ourselves spinning once more, not by conscious choice, but by habit.
These habits of personality are brought on by physical need; they are dictated by our addictions. Your body craves the chemical fix that a specific reaction gives you. For me, it is “sad”. It could be “low self esteem”, “lonely”, “weak”, “angry” or “powerless”. The chemical cocktail works, regardless of specifics.
This is how you have habitually reacted to life. The hypothalamus is the organ that uses these chemicals to go on. This is how you have become “wired”. This is not you – not who you are. It is the current version of your personality, your ego-self. Your ego is the voice of your addictions.
In my case, the chemical drive is so compelling as to render all options other than “sad”, inaccessible. It is not that other options don’t exist, they do, but I literally don’t see them when I am in the midst of a “sad” fix. “Sad” works every time, I know that it will give me the fix I so desperately want. I recognize it as a validation of who I am, it feels familiar and as the “sad” drug emotionally courses through my entire body, I sort of relax.
What I have come to understand is that the validation of me does not have to come from that feeling of familiarity I get when overcome with “sad”. It is just that I have so many cells looking for “sad” and so few looking for or expecting “happy”. With that realization I experience empowerment. I can decide to choose again.
This life as human was chosen in order to experience a very physical existence that thrives on very addictive chemicals in order to sustain the body. Your body is looking for a fix. You, who want to be here, co-operate and create the scenarios that support the necessary addiction in order to keep you here in a very real sense.
Without a need in this physical world you would cease to be. This would be a complete absence of attachment to the body. Yet you are here now, with a purpose. There is a reason why you are here, and you want to stay, feel you need to stay and intend to stay. You are here to evolve and evolution is very much linked to this concept of linear time.
In order to evolve, you must come from somewhere and head somewhere else.
The oak tree has all its necessary component parts as a seed – yet it has not yet realized itself as a magnificent oak. As a seed, it is tiny and unassuming. With time and the proper conditions it grows into a huge oak, realizing its full potential. This happens here, on the physical plane, on this earth.
You understand time because it is a core principle of this earth, in this third “dimension”. We are told that time is the “fourth dimension” and no longer exists beyond that.
So, if the “evolution” of you takes “time” and experience, and you move your focus into a “dimension” that does not recognize “time” (5th and beyond), by definition you will know yourself as an evolved being.
You do not now know yourself as an evolved being because you have not moved beyond the concept of “time”. It is not that you are not an evolved being, in the same way the oak seed is not the same “stuff” as the oak tree. It is that, here, in this “dimension” which depends on linear time, you have not yet gotten there.
You are an evolved being. Once you understand that, as such, you exist in a body that requires certain chemicals to function, and that you are creating those chemical combinations with your addictions, you will have more command over which chemicals serve you here.
There is no good or bad, there is only choice. Waking up is a process of consciously choosing your addictions rather than being unaware and feeling powerless. It takes tenacity and determination and love to awaken. These are all traits of an evolved being such as you. Love and unimaginable power exist at your deepest core. This is the truth of you.
You are the one you are waiting for.
You are coming to the end of polarity consciousness IN YOUR OWN WAY, and with resulting emotion. You are each letting go of previously held beliefs of OTHER and of the necessity of thinking in terms of OTHER to get things done.
You have no ideas other than war and control and ownership; because that is how this life has been designed. You have been here, many times, with feelings of wrongdoing and discomfort but with no clear notion that your entire method of thinking in regards to whatever situation you faced was not in concert with your eternal being.
There has been a longing from within for unity, for oneness, and it has gone on that way for many lifetimes.
Now, this lifetime, there is a chance for a shift – in actuality – the change is here, now, happening as we connect, all over the world. You and many others have come, now, to this life at this time, to assist.
There are many who are not aware of what is happening – who do not now realize the magnitude of change taking place internally, externally and on a grand scale to your Mother Earth.
As one who knows, you are conscious of your purpose. It manifests in many ways and places, yet essentially YOU ARE A WAY-SHOW-ER. It is not just that you are WAY-SEE-ERS, now it is upon you to SHOW the way of unity.
Show the path to oneness in your everyday.
It is okay that you are not clear or sure of every step. It is okay that you slip up and spend a moment in polarity consciousness. It won’t last.
It can’t last. Your intent before coming was to see the way and then show the way.
Show the way when you drive to work. Show the way with your children, with your parents, with the store clerk, the bank teller, the telephone company, your dog, your cat, your noisy neighbor, your annoying boss. Show the way in this moment, in every moment.
You are not lost. You are found and the point is not for you to now follow the path alone, it is to bring as many others along the path with you as possible.
Do you see?
Polarity was easy by comparison. You could forget about it and just react in every instance. It was always YOU vs. THEM.
It is US.
Unity will require consciousness. Constant vigilance. Everyday awareness. Every moment attentiveness.
Reacting will not suffice. Acting with deliberate oneness, that is your path now.
As the first, your way is not easy and you knew it would not be. You knew and yet you took on this challenge, volunteered eagerly, for you knew as well that for every measure of difficulty there was an even greater measure of wonder.
You are here, now, poised on the brink of magnificence and ready to behold that wonder. Not for your own glory at the expense of another, but for the emergence of the ONE – a unique wavelength of LOVE.
Chained to the Wall
So much seems to be crumbling so quickly now. Depending on your news sources, you’ve heard at varying levels the arrests, corruption and increasing controls happening in our governmental and monetary systems. For me, this is creating anxiety coupled with exhilaration. “Who can I trust?” and “We are finally free!” run through my mind simultaneously.
I envision a very large room occupied by everyone I know. You are there; my friends are there, as well as my family. We each wear identical wrist and ankle chains. These chains are lengthy – we can work, travel, live and love while wearing them. We understand they are there and they attach us to the walls of this room. We ignore them.
One day, one of us moves in such a way that his chains come loose. Actually, he follows the length of chain all the way to where it is hooked to the wall and discovers the truth – there is no hook!
He is ecstatic! He dances around, right in front of us, saying “Look!” “Look!” “These chains are attached to nothing!” With his chains dangling from his arms and legs he jumps around in joy and we are shocked and perplexed.
“He is weird”, we whisper. “Someone make him stop.” We solemnly nod our heads, wrap our chains securely around our limbs, and ignore him.
Yet he doesn’t stop. He keeps dancing and shouting and one day, he is gone. We nod our heads again and say “See; now he’s done it.” We imagine the worst fate has befallen him. He doesn’t return.
His closest friends begin to follow the length of their own chains. They too discover, as he did, that they are attached to nothing. They begin to dance and sing and rattle their chains. We can barely hear ourselves think!
Our chains begin to feel uncomfortable. We can no longer pretend they aren’t there.
Depending on who and where you are, you are someone in this story. The story we’ve been told is coming apart. This is not reason to fear, it is reason to celebrate. Embrace the change. Be prepared to respond. Fear and panic do not serve you. You will know what to do. Trust your truth.
You came now to participate in this time; this mass unchaining of humanity. Listen to your heart. Do what serves you and those you love and live with. We are loosening the bonds of manipulation and the lightness we feel may be dizzying at first. Hang in there, for from here we fly.
We are the ones we are waiting for.
Sustainable Joy - Part II
Your personality is all that you see. It is all that I see when I look at you – your sex, demeanor, height, body type, clothing – these are the markers that define you for me.
Until we become friends. Then there are other categories to add to this list of you – only child, sister, single, married, artist, accountant, runner, or surfer.
This is the stuff of your personality, your ego; this is the you that we know you to be. It is not all of you, but the part the world sees. It represents decisions you’ve made.
If I decide to lift weights, I will look fit and muscular. If I love automobiles, mine will always be waxed and clean. If it is shoes that I love, well, you get the picture. We choose who we are in this world.
Our choices are often repetitive. They become how we define ourselves. “Oh, I love the gym.” “I don’t eat meat.” “I love football.” “I am a runner.”
We do what we love. Our actions support who we believe ourselves to be; in truth, who we have created ourselves to be.
It is the same with our emotions. When we were children, we formed opinions about things and had feelings about them. Certain people/events felt good or these people/events felt bad. As we matured, we adjusted them according to our current beliefs. Upon reaching adulthood, our personality was ingrained. How we were in the world was pretty much set.
In our Quest for Joy, we notice that happiness exists, yet it is temporary. The feelings of “no joy” show up again, and again. These are repetitive, we recognize them like old friends – although they are not friends we enjoy now. Self-defeat, loser, lonely, angry; they are emotional addictions and they can be changed.
The trick is to recognize them. If you run into an old friend you no longer wish to hang with – you can say hello and then walk away. You don’t need to kill him. He still gets to exist, just not in your world.
It’s the same with emotional decisions that no longer serve us. We just need to walk away. Rejection and denial won’t work, acceptance and absorption will.
These are decisions you made at one time. Maybe you were 8 or 13 or 16 years old. Gently let these parts of who you’ve been fade away. They are not who you are. Like old shoes, they no longer fit.
Addictions are part of our human condition. They are not wrong or bad or signs of weakness. This physical life is extremely addicting. This is how we function – we learn a response and then repeat it enough times until we no longer need to decide how to do it, we just do it.
It has become such a habit we’ve come to believe that’s just the way life is. We forgot that we are defining life, not the other way around. Our life is a collection of decisions we’ve made. Relationships, jobs and emotions are all choices.
It is an emotional decision to feel powerless or victimized or worthless; it is not truth. Once we recognize the choices we’ve made we can change them.
There is no blame, all is choice. We’ve been raised to believe our “failings” were “weaknesses”. They are habits. They are not who we are.
We are collectively waking up. You are waking up. You can see the personality, the ego self you’ve created, for who he or she is. Is she who you want to be? Is he everything you’ve dreamed of? If your answer is no, then recognize what is stopping you. See the choices you’ve made that no longer serve you and choose again, without blame. Self-hatred is not necessary. We can love ourselves now. It’s okay.
We are not bad, and suffering is not necessary. Right now we can engage joy. Today we can realize our perfection.
Accept all you have ever been and decide all you’d like to be. Recognize that emotion (the one that prevents joy) when it shows up, and walk away. Destruction is not necessary, just quiet determination.
What is at stake is perpetual joy. What is at stake is you. Not the personality you have believed yourself to be, but you – the eternal being of love that understands your unlimited potential.
You are the one you are waiting for.
You are uncertain what all this talk of ascension and fifth dimension actually means. Is it going to be another day, like any other? Or, are things actually going to change?
Regardless of what you believe, on December 21, 2012 you will awaken, just like you did today, February 21, 2012. This much you can be pretty confident is true.
Ascension does not mean death – it means move; move up, rise up, movement. Dimension is a word that refers to a measurement. It is a word our scientists came up with to define our everyday perception. The fourth dimension is supposed to be time. First dimension is a point. Length and width define the second dimension. Adding height brings us into the third dimension. What is the fifth dimension? We only have guesses, but for sure it is one more than the fourth.
What that means has been theorized, predicted and promised but until we create it, it is not yet true for us.
This life you are living is one you have imagined. It is here because you believe it is here. What you expect is what you have.
In ten months that will still be the case. You will wake up that December morning to whatever it is you expect. You are building that life right now. Your hopes, dreams, plans and feeling are setting the stage.
Dream of a better world, hope for peace, intend health, feel prosperous. These are habits to cultivate. They will yield a life of joy. It is all here for you.
This population is seven billion strong. With a unified thought we can expect ourselves into whatever that thought is.
Focus on what it is you’d like to live. Your focus becomes your everyday. None of these laws of creation will be changing this year. Our awareness of them fuels our power however. Together we can intentionally manifest happiness.
With single minded determination you are able to create the fantastic. The world is changing around us - not independent of us, but because of us. We are waking up. The fraudulent monetary systems are crumbling, the entire education system is being questioned and our government is no longer trusted. We are seeing the truth and taking things into our own hands.
Consciousness is possible in every aspect of life. It only takes practice. Awake and aware – carry out your days. Your life will proceed accordingly.
Let’s expect love - love of self, love of others, joy in our work, fulfillment of purpose, vitality in our step. Let’s visualize clean air and water for us all. Let’s remove war from our plans and see only peaceful conflict resolution.
It can’t hurt to see any of this. You can imagine in animation if that works for you.
When the opposition shows up and tries to convince you things are otherwise, just call up your favorite visual and hold that for a moment.
Hope for a better future is fine and wonderful yet what will create that future is action. See the future you desire. See it every day. Once you do, who knows where your vision will lead? Your life will follow course and action will ensue. It will have no choice but to manifest as you believe. That is that way it works.
We will put the definition for ascension and fifth dimension into our dictionaries. We will define December 21, 2012.
We are defining it right now. We are the ones we are waiting for.
Feeling separate – anger, winning, victimization – all (are) ego constructs to isolate us and the trick is to know they are ego created and to run them for as long as you desire, release them, and move on.
Moving on is most easily accomplished through love.
Love is recognized when there is no discomfort, no hesitation about the correctness of what has occurred. It will feel right all the way through to your toes.
You will know when you do it. You have no experience, yet, at running your ego. It is that space, that love, that unconditional love that will guide you.
Solitary acts are never true
This love of you becomes the love of others not because it is the right thing to do in the context of religion or morality, but because as you love yourself you are loving others. It is fact. You are the other. Period. This is what is actually happening on our earth, with all of us a collective whole.
As an organic whole, we have hated ourselves. In that hatred we have participated in a universal self destruction. The means of our deterioration have been warfare; chemical, monetary, psychological and physical control. We as a whole have been a part of it all. Our contribution individually has taken the form of self-loathing.
We are one. Every thought and feeling contributes to the whole. Each judgment and all of the negativity you have thought didn’t matter, because it was only self-directed – has contributed. You are an integral component of the whole that is us.
The systematic manipulation of us was part of the plan. You are here willingly participating in this life to challenge yourself. “What is it possible to create within so much negativity?” The odds of polarity have been stacked against you.
All that is changing now. You are changing that. You are beginning to love. Your light is peeking out from under its covering of darkness and I can see it! Our combined light is brightening this field on which we play.
There is no truth in a polarized life. You have never created alone. What you feel, you see, and all thoughts are creative. We are creating our life, our world, as one.
As we shift from self-hatred to self-love, the entire planet shifts. Eventually, you will witness the effects of your love.
This week I witnessed a miracle. For six months I have been working with someone who openly disliked me. At least that was my interpretation of her hostility. Several days ago she needed a favor and asked me, without agitation, for the first time. I complied, and then I did something I hadn’t before. I sent her love and healing. I am sort of humbled to think I hadn’t thought of this earlier, but I hadn’t. I was mad and stubbornly refused to think of her in any way other than blameful – “She hates me and I don’t know why.”
A day passed and when I saw her next it was as if the light within had been switched on! Her eyes shone, she smiled, her hair was loose and we shared a moment. I felt amazing! A miracle.
There are no insignificant moments. There are no small acts of love. We are moving from polarity to unity. All of us together, are love.
What can you do to change the world? You can love yourself, and your world will change.
It is not “just” you, it is you. You and your world becomes me and my world, which is us and our world; our world, our life, as one expression of love.
The individualized piece of divinity that you are, is every bit as important to what happens in this world as that piece that is a president.
This is not a falsehood. This is truth. You are the starting point, the ending point, and the whole point. Love yourself. You will change the world.
Why is it that we have judgment? Someone else’s life does not affect yours, not really.
This is the atmosphere we grew up in – one where many other types of humans were wrong, bad, evil, mistaken – you name it and someone else embodied it. In order for you to overcome the very core of duality, you immersed yourself in that thinking. You learned from the best. It is not a bad thing but a real thing – your formative years were spent hearing this type of comparison continuously.
Unity and oneness were not concepts you heard about.
You have come so very far. Now it is upon you to love all others, to be with them and not fall into patterns of duality.
There is no us and them. Notice the alternate forms as you would a passing cloud – let them go.
