It’s like watching an image, once pixelated, come together. There is evidence in the everyday.
When the channellers emerged en masse two years ago, the message was clear. Inhaling the enlightened fumes, arrogance emerged. We were played brilliantly. Misfits all of our lives, it was like giving us crack – we ate it up. We were the Chosen Ones, the Special Ones, the Enlightened Ones, here to finally claim our untold worth. Long life, prosperity, joy and beauty – this is where we belong.
The separation which had been only slightly obvious to us, clarified. It was us who had the answers. It was our job to enlighten those who didn’t know. They were the many, we were the few.
As Oneness creeps quietly in, what surprises is what it looks like in the everyday. It looks like friendships renewed with those previously neglected because they didn’t “get it”. Everyone’s included. It looks like saying yes. Everything has merit now, the “no’s” come too, and with them the understanding that “no” is not rejection. It is a matter of preference.
I choose what serves me and that benefits the whole. I do what I like. You do the same. It’s all good.
There is an acceptance. Ways to be, dress, eat, dance, sing, love and play are not good or bad – they are choices. Love trumps everything. Relationships take effort. It’s about intent. It’s about choice.
There’s an addiction to something we’ll have to face. We are looking to fly. This addiction holds us to the ground. It’s about control. It’s about trust. It’s about letting someone in, leaving the door open. Wide open.
The specifics for each of us differ, beneath them we are One. What holds us back is fear.
You see, we are the Chosen Ones, the Special Ones, the Enlightened Ones, here to finally claim our untold worth. Every single One of us.
There is nothing you need now – you are perfection; ready to fly. The only thing left to do is believe. With every thought, know that you are Gods. When you wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, walk out the door – believe. Believe in your power. Know who you are. Stop hiding. You are God.
As things come up, and the pixelation returns, look right at it. Stand your ground. This thing, this thing bringing up the illusion, is not bigger, better, more beautiful, stronger, smarter or richer than you. It is you. It’s all you. Just love it and absorb it into the life force that you are.
We are the best and the worst of us, the oldest and the youngest, the cruelest and the most sainted, the horrific and the breathtaking. We are One, here to join together. We’ll have to come out of our cage to do so, step off our cliff, let someone in, give something up, release the wheel.
Our power is in Unity. We have trusted and been lied to and hold onto that fact as a shield. We crafted, told and believed that lie, hence its brilliance. Put down your shield. It was you who lied, you who believed and you who know the truth. Remember. It is time. We did this on purpose. The bravest, strongest, softest, gentlest, most intense and stimulating beings are us.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
As we dance through our days, the unexpected and potentially shocking can emerge. It is not just the landscape that is changing. The life within the backdrop is taking on a different hue. These may not be colors or shades you knew were there, yet their effect is not to be missed. This is you.
The feelings erupting now appear raw and unfamiliar, maybe welcome, yet strange. This time will proceed and change all of us. How we weather these alterations is up to us. We are all moving or being forcibly moved.
Every day this week I’ve witnessed major life changing events crash into people I love. Deaths, near deaths, accidents, moves, and work or relationship changes are whizzing by at heart stopping speed. These moments will bring us all to our knees, one way or the other.
Love is the topic, yet what is the point? We are finding out that love is what we are. The rest is all window dressing; things we came to play with while here. Rules and religions, bodies, preferences, colors, opinions, beliefs, bank accounts, habits and addictions are the stuff of dreams. In a moment of truth, it’s only you. We are One.
God is oozing out all over the place right now. I suspect that these billboard moments are necessary for those of us who have largely and until now missed the point, myself included. The scenery has been so mesmerizing as to be believed. These days ahead will bring us all to truth, everyone included. We are about to discover, individually and collectively, what’s important. It’s not what we thought.
Love is undeniable. It does not always make sense in the life we’ve constructed, yet inside our heart it is recognizable truth. Brought to your knees in a moment of clarity - love will be the only thing you see.
We may perceive of our lives as without love, yet longing for love is never true. You cannot long for that which you are. You may be wishing for an expression you’ve defined as love, be it a promise or a person or an action or a specific relationship, but you are never without love. It may take a moment on your knees for you to realize this truth; once you do you will feel only gratitude.
All of it is love. My partner DreamHopper is a deep trance channel. The energy that comes through is that of his greater self, who has not ever fully integrated as a human. He is often shocked at the constant distractions, stimulation, sensations, sounds, smells and tastes. In describing his point of view, he refers to it as “the jello” and describes it as only love. There is no contrast. It is the contrast that sparks creation and spurs rapid growth. This contrast or “third dimension” is not separate from love, but love in another form. It is yummy and stimulating and exciting and all of it agape.
We are coming to a point now where understanding is enmeshed within the contrast. This may not mean we like it any better, but we “get” the reason for it and can choose consciously. All (my) sources predict rapid and unrelenting change right now. As we engage, it just may be our moment to shine. When the whole world seems to be changing, our weirdness won’t stand out quite so much.
Years ago, while in Ireland, we sat in a tiny, local pub where my sister, mom and I were definitely the only tourists. A woman leaned over and asked my sister if she was enjoying her holiday. My sister, rather surprised, asked “Is it that obvious?” In a lovely Irish brogue her answer came “Aye, I’m afraid you stick out like sore thumbs.”
A world in upheaval will appreciate consistent faith, truth and love, however out of place it may look. As light workers, your expertise is needed now more than ever. Not because of what you tell or show someone, but because of your demonstrable ability for authenticity. The truth of us will be evident in your every step. You are love. You are light. You are Gods.
You are the One we’ve been waiting for.
It seems a simple choice -
succumb, or overcome?
Succeed, or fail?
Winner, or loser?
The english language is riddled with dualities,
each one of them cheapening
the fascinating variegated integrity
of creation itself.
Many of us are force-fed these notions
and our mind, fulfilling it's function, digests them -
integrating yes/no understandings into our identity.
Are you fat, or skinny?
Stupid, or smart?
If you're not pretty you must be ugly,
and if you're not a 'have'
you must be one of the unfortunate 'have-nots.'
Are you good at dancing? Bad at sports? Can you sing, or not?
Do you have your shit together, or don't you?
Are you living up to your potential? Yes or no?
(Don't think negative, don't think negative, don't think negative.)
(But what if I'm afraid?)
Happy people are successful!
(Great, now I'm sad and unsuccessful.)
Truth is not an either/or,
truth is terrifyingly brave
and grievously joyful.
Life is radiantly monstrous
and perfectly, perfectly fucked up.
I have been depressed for the past 24 hours,
and in my depression have found hope unconquerable -
for it has already been conquered, has already surrendered.
I would see humanity expand,
and slip loose of all the dualistic shackles
attendant to the experience
of being consciousness incarnate.
We are a phenomenon of consciousness itself, and so innately unconstrained.
We do not succumb or overcome, win or lose.
It may appear that way to those taken in by the scoreboard's simple illusion:
"Oh well, good game... we lost."
It can be a horrifyingly ecstatic sensation, to surrender to the truths
that lie beyond the boundaries of either/or.
As I commit more and more fully to abandoning myself to what is,
something new seems to be happening.
I sense the subtle emergence of a crystalline quality in myself,
a quality that seems to suffuse everyday life with a moment-to-moment ability
to be peacefully, attentively, alertly, and contemplatively present.
I don't find it easy,
I find it a challenge to completely surrender the widely-held belief system
which insists that there's a right way and a wrong way to do,
a right way and a wrong way to be.
Often I find myself desperate for some evaluative criteria
the same way I'd be desperate for air underwater -
there is a similar sense of losing myself.
Often I race back to dualistic standards
like a child fleeing back to mom and dad -
the playground is too noisy, too confusing, too chaotic
and I don't know what to do, don't know how to play, don't know what the rules are...
at least with mom and dad I know if I'm doing it right or not.
When this happens, I can be pretty hard on myself -
I've had a lot of practice establishing unrealistically high expectations
and then berating myself when I fall short.
I find it hardest when I feel isolated.
Although I can be quite articulate here in blog-world,
in the face-to-face interactions of everyday life I'm often at a loss
when asked to speak about what I'm doing with my life.
People ask me questions like:
"What did you do today?"
"What are you working on?"
and I don't know how to answer. Once I tried saying:
"I'm intentionally outgrowing the dichotomy of polarity, because I'm utterly inspired by the vision of what humanity will inevitably collectively accomplish once we all do the same."
...and the conversation sort of stalled at that point.
I'm so utterly inspired by our collective collective potential, and I know that once enough individuals are consistently oriented in the non-dualistic consciousness of creation itself then it is only a matter of time until the prevalent, polarizing, surface-level belief systems of our contemporary global society begin to shift en masse. And as the underlying belief systems shift, as our collective consciousness outgrows the idea that there's a right way and a wrong way, then more and more people will feel safe enough to surrender to what simply is... and what is, of course, is the joyful vitality of being, the living luminosity of life itself. Our current unsustainable contemporary global society is cradled within creation itself, and the man-made systems in place only seem to be running the show. Nothing trumps creation.
Suffice to say, I'm absolutely inspired by this vision, and would do anything, would give everything, to help it come to be... and that's what I'm doing. That's my focus, that's my intention, that is the statement of purpose for my life and what motivates me every day.
The reason this post is so friggin long is because I feel really isolated in this vision, and I'm reaching out. In my everyday life here in Australia I don't have many people I can share this vision with, and this vision is why I do everything. So when people ask me how I am or what I'm working on but I feel unable to share this vision with them, I don't know what to say. I don't know how to answer, so I end up not answering honestly. I end up hiding, because I don't know how to talk about it, which means I end up feeling really, really alone.
Simultaneously I'm struggling financially, and don't know how I'm going to pay rent, much less afford a plane ticket out of the country when my visa expires in 25 days. I don't feel 'off my path,' whatever that means - I'm learning so much and I'm so incredibly blessed. I'm just really, really scared.
I know that the financial struggle only exists on the surface-level of some man-made system - I trust creation, and am demonstrating my faith daily. The root problem is feeling isolated as a holder of this vision, and feeling isolated in working towards this vision - all of my material problems feel manageable when I feel like I'm part of a tribe working towards a common goal. I need community, not money.
So I'd really appreciate hearing from you, whoever you are. Please tell me I'm not doing this alone, tell me we're doing this together. The vision of us working together and what we can accomplish is why I'm committed to this path... I need to know you're with me. I can weather all the other turbulence that comes along with pursuing this vision, but I can't bear the feeling of doing it alone.
We are One.

I was looking for something to share today, as I find myself without words. I came to this:
I trust the other because I trust myself.
Because I trust myself, I trust the other.
Distrusting the other,
I question my own decision to be
where I am,
sharing relational space,
thus distrusting myself.
The other represents an experience I chose,
a relationship I created,
and in doubting the integrity of my creation
I cannot help but doubt the integrity
of myself as the creator.
I trust I knew what I was doing
in the act of creating any given relationship.
I choose not to doubt it, holding an understanding
that choosing to embark on a creative journey
means choosing to be surprised,
and that choosing to enter into
the creative relational process with another
is the antithesis of drawing up a contract and codifying the specifics:
true creation inevitably moves into the unknown.
Were I only to have relationships within the sphere
of what I already know and understand
there would be no newness, no discovery,
no great learning.
It is by trusting the creative impulse
that moves me to enter
into unknown relational spaces
that I am able to stay calm
when the relationship travels
beyond my comfort zone.
By choosing to trust the people in my life,
(most especially when the territory of that relationship
becomes unfamiliar and the more fearful bits of me
begin to mutiny)
I choose to trust myself.

We rest in varying levels of doubt as this pivotal year ends. I introduce this blog, Ascending Spirals of Understanding, from our Aussie Angel who starts right off dealing with our ultimate dilemma, who can we trust. It is us.
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
