We are finding a voice. We are challenging institutions and on the brink of taking control of not only our money, but our lives. I don’t know that this has ever happened world-wide, and it feels like an important step towards unity consciousness, towards empowerment. My hope is for a continuation of this movement towards unity, while retaining and utilizing individual power.
Personally, I realize that for unity to exist as a force, I must stop seeing separators. When I look at anything, I have noticed how my immediate reaction is to categorize it, label it even. Thoughts such as “there’s an overweight teenage boy, why is he wearing plaid?”, “here comes a crabby, skinny old lady”… do not serve my intent for oneness. In order for a shift in consciousness, I must stop separating out the wealthy 1% as evil, the old as helpless and the young as incapable. I must stop separating, period.
Here’s the thing, there is a fine line between noticing the differences and holding an opinion about them and labeling them. Life simply exists here as a platform in which to experience ourselves. True non-judgment is a very rare thing to discover in another human. It signifies an evolved soul.
Not judging does not mean living without preferences. I do not enjoy popcorn. I do not think there is something wrong with my children because they love popcorn. Perhaps, if I was unsure of my decision about popcorn, I would ridicule popcorn lovers and make them wrong for their choice. Perhaps I would attempt to get them to come over to my side, the side where all the intelligent, popcorn haters sit. This would bolster my self esteem, my belief in the “rightness” of my popcorn beliefs.
There are no “right” popcorn decisions, just as there are no “right” ways to live your life. All is choice. When you understand, absolutely that each choice you make is only a choice for a singular moment and nothing more, you become much less attached to the choices of others. Each life is a singular moment, filled with decisions/choices. Freedom is non-attachment. Freedom is love.
Each lifetime chosen provides a different approach, another way to experience creation. This is why there is no cause for fear. Fear only exists because you believe you can lose something – your life, your reputation, your money, your love – you cannot lose what isn’t real.
What is real is you. It is love. Love truly felt is something never lost. It is something no one can take from you. It exists as truth.
You are the one you’ve been waiting for all along.
