We live in a time when many are questioning the meaning of their lives and wrestling with the apparent dysfunction of our government, declining environment, and the inability to sustain ourselves through nourishing food for the body and nourishing energies for the soul.
As our population grows and our resources wane, we have the sense that, somehow, we are living in a wasteland. No joy or satisfaction we feel seems to last, and anxiety about life preoccupies our thoughts. We may get temporary relief from “getting something” – objects, people’s affection and attention, entertainment, recognition, or money. However, these do not seem to fill the emptiness, and the urge for “more” is ever present.
Many people are stepping forward to help in ways they know how. Information is shared freely on the Internet, and all can express what they think needs to be done to restore a global balance. Some come at the situation from the perspective of science and engineering, proposing ways to change our living infrastructure to be in balance with our resources. Others encourage all to stand up and oppose global corporations and government, but it is not quite clear what form that confrontation would take. Still others are angry and disillusioned with their lives and feel helpless to do anything at all, except live the best they can.
It is important to acknowledge that we are all different in how we perceive our reality, our place in this reality, and our responsibilities to life itself. Our uniqueness is essential because the emergence of a balanced and interconnected life grid will require all of our creativity. However, without a pure and heartfelt intention and attention, some efforts will simply get tangled up with the current dysfunction, and their original missions will become diluted by conflict.
Well then… What is the right approach to healing and honoring the intricate interconnections we call life? Who has the answers to free us from the fight and flight mentality, and empower us with specific actions we can take to make life a joyful and happy experience for all? I feel that we all have the answers – we all have the Light within that is ready to unite with the Light without. We just need to remove some of the obstacles to feeling reality as it is, and purify the debris of prior conditioning and clouded perceptions.
Yes, there are dark and polluting forces that seek to drain us of our life and extinguish our inner Light. I have studied them for several years now, wandering the nearby dimensions to learn more about what is going on. What I learned is that these forces are extremely powerful and the energy of “fighting” them does not appear to do much lasting good. Although occasional confrontation of these force on the hidden levels may be necessary, there had to be a faster way create a positive change in our lives on the planet.
In most cases, I’ve found that it is much more effective to withdraw all energy from the dark forces, and channel my life into all that nurtures and support the birthing of Light on the planet. Instead of focusing on what I want to move away from, I direct my full attention and intention to what it is that may be needed to heal the life grid.
It all starts with the fundamental acknowledgement that we are all here to do more than simply survive and exist, and we have a collective responsibility for each other and our planet. Responsibility is not a dirty word, nor is it an invitation to martyrdom. It is simply our natural function to be the stewards who usher in a change. My only hope is that those who currently feel alone and misplaced in this world feel supported and are able to move forward through the seeming insanity of daily existence.
It is not necessary to waste time on wondering about our spiritual levels or dwelling on insecurities, or arguing with each other about who is right, bigger, or better – although we do! The work that needs to be done only needs a humble, vulnerable, and open heart that perceives life from moment to moment – always new, fresh, and innocent.
One by one, group by group, we can ignite the spiritual fire on the planet so that both it and we can transform. Yes, it is a time for change, and it starts with a soft and loving heart that offers itself to the service of life, of which we are all an intricate part.
