The Best Of Times Or The Worst Of Times? It's Your Call!
Are you worried about the times we live in? Times of chaos and upheaval also offer tremendous opportunity for personal growth and innovation. This period of economic uncertainty offers you the choice to look at life from a Higher perspective, step into your soul's purpose and power, and become an instrument of hope and healing.
Turn on the media and you are bombarded with dire assessments claiming that these are the worst times of human history: war and suffering reaching crisis proportions globally, Mother Earth reeling from the impact of human greed and exploitation, and a world economy careening out of control.
I beg to differ.
Yes, we are in momentous times; times that are demanding a response from everyone alive today. Yet I believe that the deep wounds surfacing in the collective psyche of mankind are presenting both horror and opportunity. Societies hunger for Truth to cut through illusion and bring about spiritual healing at the deepest levels of being. And you and I are called upon to participate.
I also believe that what we face in the external world today carries the potential for blessing, not a curse. Crisis unites us, for better or for worse. How much longer could we subsist as helpless victims of circumstance rather than as powerful co-creators of a Higher reality?
We've been indoctrinated to believe that what appears in the third-dimensional world is the only reality that exists; therefore, it appears to many as though we're all going down with collapsing infrastructures in the material world. The reality is that we are NOT going down, because Higher truth exists in dimensions far beyond the third.
That is why I would like to propose another alternative.
What is going on in our world today is not the end of life; it is the end of life as many have known it. It is not a disaster; it is a wake-up call. It is the call to choose which reality you will serve.
It is a call to emerge from the hypnotic trance of denial that has imprisoned humanity's thinking for eons of time. This wake-up call is asking you to recognize that nobody outside yourself is in charge of your ultimate reality; nobody outside yourself has the power to create your reality - neither a president nor a collapsing world system!
This Higher call is challenging you to decide at which altar you choose to kneel: is it the altar of the almighty dollar or is it the altar of Almighty God? Are you going to grope for fear-based solutions that promise momentary reprieve, or are you going to surrender to the perfect, Divine Plan and purpose for your life?
Yes, it is time to get off the fence and choose. This is not a time for wishy-washy pandering around issues; it is time to decide whom you will serve. That commitment is the crank that sets in motion everything needed for resolution at every level of your life, and the outcomes will reflect the choice you made.
It is indeed necessary for old, false illusions of power and security to fall away in order to create a higher reality from a place of truth. And now, each one of us is being called to step into our own Higher power, so that collectively we can create a new, higher reality for life on this planet.
The external world offers a grand mirror in which all our hidden illusions and fears are reflected. This Higher wake-up call is asking you to become fully conscious of every fear and illusion hidden in yourself. The fears and illusions you see in the external world are visible to you for the simple reason that the same energy also exists within you. The external world is simply reflecting back that which is in you so that you can acknowledge, heal and release it within yourself.
As you heal every aspect of external life that you do not like by taking responsibility within yourself for the same energy, you start living from your inner Source as a co-creator.
Yes, it is time to take full responsibility for our lives; for what we are and for what we are not. This acceptance becomes the essential first step toward change, healing and co-creating.
Nobody out there - no government, no leader and no establishment - has the power to create or to change the blueprint for your life. You are the only person who has been given that authority - and it is a mandate for your soul's evolution. When you align with your Divine Source, you also align to the blueprint for your life. And you are the only person with sufficient authority to create your life from that blueprint, which is Divinely perfect.
Your Divine connection will hold you steady throughout this time of upheaval while you learn to operate this new kind of energy... the energy of oneness with your Divine purpose. Long ago, before you ever came into this life, you chose to embody this energy at this time. It is your contribution to the shift of the ages, and now is your time to fulfill that agreement.
Throughout history, we have been reminded of the ultimate benevolence of the Divine blueprint - God's plan - for us. In the Judeo-Christian scriptures, the prophet Jeremiah recorded God as saying, "I know the plans I have for you; plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Your alignment to Divinity activates that blueprint for blessing in your life.
Could you, just for a moment, imagine the powerful example we can collectively set for our children and generations to come by choosing to align with Truth? Could you imagine the wave of healing that would sweep across our planet when we unite in doing what is right, rather than what is the most profitable? Just imagine the hope we could create for a global future of peace when at last we start living from the heart!
No government superpower or human messiah can do that for us. If it is going to be, it will be because you and I are creating it. We are the ones that we have been waiting for, and the clay feet of crumbling leadership merely serve to remind us that true power resides within.
Mahatma Gandhi said, "Humans' greatness lies in being able to remake themselves... and then they will be the change they wish to see in the world." It all starts with you and me, and it starts now! It is time to clean up our personal, internal worlds first. We need to heal the old fears and illusions that have kept us feeling like helpless children for too long.
Doing the inner work of healing old, false perceptions will prepare the way for you to create a new reality, based on higher Truth. The very act of starting this work will set in motion the Divine plan, drawing to you Divine help and guidance for the task. After all, that is the reason you are on this planet - to become the highest expression of your Higher nature.
Just as humans created a grand illusion of power and success on this planet through their choices and actions, now it is time to create a new, Higher reality. The same energy and passion that was used to create the grand illusion, is available to us to create anew. What will it be: more illusions of the same kind, or a Higher reality based on Divine truth? It's our call!
At this time in history, I can think of no message more powerful than simply reminding you who you really are: a limitless spiritual being who chose to be on the planet at this time. Why? Because you have something to offer to help usher in the new era of Higher living.
What are your gifts and talents? It is time to use them to participate in the process. What do you love doing? What makes your heart sing? Know that the very things that quicken your soul, also have the power to bring hope, comfort and healing to the world around you.
It is time to move deeper into the stream of consciousness that carries us forward. Look around you and you will notice that you are not alone. We are all in this together as one family of mankind, and each one of us has something to contribute to move the collective forward.
This is a time to banish all thoughts of fear, and to respond to the call for service by saying, "Here I am; send me, use my talents, and let me be an instrument of hope and healing." The power of heaven is ready to support your every effort!
