In the words of the collective: “The world is going insane and we can’t do anything about it… we’re powerless and we’re trapped!” Well, we can do one thing: realize that this is not a trap as much as it is light shining on darkness. Let’s step back, look at the flow, and see if there is a way to proceed.
Readers of this blog know that I often write about a day to come when consciousness expands and the pure light of truth is received with gratitude. This gratitude will be felt when love is the response to truth, i.e. “I love truth even if it makes me really uncomfortable, even if it reveals my secrets and flaws.” At the moment, the collective reaction to truth is fear, anger, denial and desperation. We say we want truth, but we fear it because it means we will change, and we’ll have to face the unknown. It’s like a little death.
This is deep stuff we’re going through, and people struggle to cope with the revelations. Experiencing one ‘truth bomb’ after another, scrambling to decide which of the polarities is safer, we are left in confusion and pain. I’ve heard the statement many times, “All I can do is pray.” Sometimes that is all we can do, so please do pray, continuously pray, but I would suggest that there is a more empowered way to pray now that Divinity has come home to the heart.
Prayer: as a child I would plead to someone out in the sky to intervene in my life, to forgive me and help me, to make me safe and take me to heaven when I die. To make sure my prayer was heard I would confess my sins. It turns out that was the hardest part – searching through the actions of a little child for sins. Later on I got busy being a teen, so I put aside those concerns.
Now, as an elder, prayer is back in my life… but with a difference. There is no pleading or asking favors. Instead, when I watch a video or read about what’s going on in the world and it impacts me emotionally, I’ll intentionally lift up my thoughts to the opposite, envisioning the balanced and healed world to come. I know, this seems like I’m merely raising my own energy. If it is just me doing me, does it bring the ‘world to come’ any closer? Yes, it does. If a hundred thousand continuously pray, well, that’s a significant impact on the collective.
In the past I’ve talked about teachers and guides that I have found on the Internet, and how I’m so grateful for the information that they make available. The prayer that I’ve been practicing cane from the Internet… it is something I learned from watching a Matt Khan video. It has really hit the spot as it is something to do personally, moment to moment. At this point in time, I think it’s a good idea to turn to those guides who have helped us in the past, and see where they’re at. We’ll need our skills to be strong, as this is spiritual battle.
We’re finding out that the shift in consciousness is not only an expansion, but it requires of us a courageous ‘face forward’ to embrace change. The part of me that fears is still here, and I appreciate that aspect… it’s honest. There are reasons for fear: all of us can see what’s happening, and we know there is even more looming. But now, as we turn, we bring our entire self forward, including the shadow aspects. This is courage. It comes from knowing that the heaven we envision, already IS. We’re walking to it and carrying it.
I’ve often thought about what is at the origin, i.e. what problem is humanity working out. Many others have looked at this as well, from quite a few angles. In previous writings I’ve said that the sky god has to be brought home, but why a sky god in the first place? We’ll talk more about that.
