Look Beneath The Surface…

I first and foremost wish to apologize to my foreign readers about this post, as they will not be familiar with what I am writing about, but in some ways perhaps you will reap something from it as well. I was seeing some of the Baltimore riots recently and was very disturbed by what I saw. Yes the violence being generated by mere children was horrendous, but it was the fog of the underlying reasons for it that I found even more upsetting to witness. I saw angry faces twisted with hopelessness, exhaustion and defeat. Yes they were mostly black faces of people who have been stepped on and oppressed for eons, but I also saw the faces of the world. I saw people who have been refused the right to grow into who or what they choose to be. I saw minds that were not allowed to grow and expand because their schools for them have little to offer them. I saw these people as victims of small- minded thinking by the people who lead them, who they themselves have not grown beyond the narrow thinking of racism so they can embrace all of humanity as equal. I felt as if I were watching a movie about the world condensed down to Baltimore Maryland. Yes a great deal of this is about racism and oppression, but it goes deeper than that and that is why it effected me so.

I saw more than black angry and hopeless faces, I saw the plight all of humanity is fighting against. All of humanity has been denied the right to be who they want to be, they are held captive by the mind control of a few who are pulling the strings of the political puppets. The same ones yanking at the purse strings as well, stealing and looting people’s pockets and leaving the people with very little to exist upon. The same ones who have refused to offer aid for education to the poorest of communities, perpetuating the problems further, for without education and money there is little hope for getting ahead and living the American dream or the world dream of so many. Granted the blacks have suffered far greater in many ways I do not think most people can even comprehend, but the whole world is suffering as well. It made me want to jump up and find a way to collect the money to improve their schools or help rebuild the city of Baltimore, and for a moment it charged through me with excitement, but sadly that flame was quickly extinguished.

I felt the heaviness we have all be feeling for so long that no matter how much money I could gather up or how many schools I could rebuild and fill with technology, I also knew that will not solve the problem. The same is true for all the rest of the world. Until the string pullers are gone, until our leaders grow up and raise their consciousness and expand their compassion, nothing will change. We know now that the Mayor of Baltimore told the police to stand down and look what happened. By doing that a message was sent to the black people of Baltimore saying you are not worth saving. I will make a bet with anyone, if what we saw happening was being done to an upscale white community, riot police and National Guard would have been there immediately! Businesses would not have burned. So the message was sent loud and clear and people wonder why there is so much anger! Those communities that were ravaged are just as worthy as the community of million dollar homes and until the world both sees and understands this concept, all the money in the world for rebuilding will do nothing to change what is taking place.

What we are seeing are the faces of people who want to be regarded as equal, to know they matter, to know their children will be well-educated just like the million dollar children, and why shouldn’t they be? By our president calling them thugs he has once again perpetuated a vision for the world to see rather than going beneath the surface and addressing the root of the matter to start the healing. If you don’t engage in equality NOTHING will get better. The Government shoves race down the people’s throats in order to keep the division between people strong enabling them to control the people better. ENOUGH! The president has no place belittling the people, shaming the police and tearing apart our country. I purposely used a small letter p in the word president because he has hardly earned the right for a capital letter. So where am I going with this? I don’t really know. I guess I am trying to point out the frustration people are feeling everywhere. I know I feel it because I cannot figure out a way to rid the world of small thinking and string pullers, and I know in my heart both of those need to be addressed if we ever wish to see change. And so I am left with the big question I am always left with, ” How do we make these changes?” which in turn leaves me sadly depressed. I know how frustrated I feel inside and exhausted from the long and tumultuous journey we have all been on, but I dare not even allow myself to feel the pain and hopelessness the people of Baltimore feel everyday as they struggle to just be accepted. It is time for the white people to stand alongside the black people and link arms and demand change. The world is screaming for it! To hell with the Government, it is time for WE THE PEOPLE to create change!

Courage…

Now is the time to be prepared for where we find ourselves right now as well as where we are headed. I have noticed lately the pulling back of people, less participation in blogging many times and staying within the inner realms of ourselves. People seem to be trying to collect up their courage to deal with what they are finding themselves faced with. Tough times right now for sure and so many negative, horrible tragedies occurring everywhere one looks it seems. I guess we could put our blinders on and just see the chaos churning through the world, but I choose to take them off and allow myself to see beyond the periphery of everything, to see the new world filling in the voids left by the old world falling away into oblivion. Yes it takes courage to stand strong amongst all of this chaos and still keep ourselves focused on the good, but this is why we are here, to hold the vision of the new world in our hearts and to help it manifest into being.

Just about everyone I bump into these days is fighting with the demons within, fighting to expel them creating more space for the good within to take hold. These are the last steps we take to prepare for what lies ahead. We must be strong and secure within ourselves and if we are still being held hostage by our own demons from the past, how can we be strong and fully present? It takes massive courage to face these demons, after all, we have kept them at bay for a very long time, refusing to acknowledge them, for if we do, then we must deal with them. For a very long time it has been easier to ignore them, but we are sensing now we can no longer put off the inevitable. We are sensing that ‘now or never’ feeling that pushes us forward despite how frightening or painful it may be to dance with the devil. We thought for a long time now that we were blessed to be able to ignore it all and keep living life as normal, but underneath it all the angst kept growing. It has gotten so large we cannot ignore it any longer and so we roll up our sleeves and attempt to get to work. Spirit is asking us to make ourselves whole and to shift our priorities off of ourselves and onto the world as one entity. The boundaries of division are beginning to blur and we are realizing we are all one, we all matter and if we fail then the world fails.

I urge everyone walking this road right now to find your courage and more importantly, if you need support to ask for it! We have been brainwashed into thinking asking for help is weak, that we should be able to stand on our own and suck it up. No! That is not how we humans are meant to live our lives. We live our lives by reaching out to others and offering to help each other up. Has it worked up until now being isolated and standing alone to fight our battles? No. I have often said the best way to live your life is to do the very opposite of what the Government tells us. The information they spoon feed us is for our demise not our well-being. Realizing this and choosing to live our lives according to our own rules gives us greater strength to be who we are meant to be. If you have your life together and are in the flow, bless you. If you are struggling to make things right within, stay strong and know you are not alone on this journey to wholeness. We are all in this ship together sailing into the unknown, but if we have courage and stay together as one, we will soon see the struggle was worth it and faith springs eternal. We are close to the end of the epic battle for our freedom. Believe in it and it will be.

Blessings to us all,

Sacredness…

The time has come to approach life differently now I feel. For quite some time now many have felt frustrated that change is not happening the way we dreamed about, that nothing seems to change, but indeed it does. Many are trapped and tied down by their roots in the old paradigm we find impossible to sever, but we must. Those people are not seeing or feeling the changes because they remain locked inside the old paradigm, unable to see or feel the new world that vibrates all around us. We cannot embrace the new world as long as we remain connected to the old ways of participating in life. We think about it, we talk about it but so many are not living it. So how do we live it? First and foremost it will require our courage to let go of the old which in essence will require us to TRUST in ourselves and in the Universe. We cannot doubt ourselves and our abilities to embrace the new world. Doubt is the master creator of shaky foundations. We need to believe and not allow ourselves to entertain doubt on any level. In order to fully believe in ourselves without question requires a great deal of inner work to clear out the old ways that hold us back. It requires us to love ourselves so we must work to clear away any beliefs we have that stop us from loving and believing in ourselves. Most of those old paradigm beliefs are not even true anyway, we just imagine them to be true and we drag those false beliefs behind us wherever we go. Time to drop the baggage and sweep out the cobwebs.

Many often ask why it will take courage to move forward. In order to clear away old beliefs we must be willing to accept that all the living we have done up until the present has been false, an illusion, and who wants to accept their life as a lie? It is not our fault! Humanity at large has been brain washed and manipulated to think certain ways and see the world in certain ways, but those ways were false. There is no need to despair about this. There is no time to waste regretting our old lives and wishing things had been different. They are what they are, but we will find our way through the illusions, letting them fall behind us as we move forward. They are of no use to us any longer. Once we are able to accept that our lives were lies and illusions, we are now able to open our hearts and our minds to a new way of being.

The old paradigm was cold and calculated and often brutal and unkind. It was the survival of the fittest, we fought our way alone, we trusted very few and it was all about how successful we became, how many materialistic things we could obtain and greedily call our own. These are the old ways we must be willing to release. This new world vibrating all around us right now is far different. It is all about living a sacred life, a loving life, a giving life and a compassionate life. Living a sacred life is living a life that matters deeply, a life of meaning all the while showing great respect to all others as they create their own lives as well. It is honoring each and every one of us and the lives we choose to live. Humanity will always be considered as having a herd mentality,it is who we are, but we must look at that fact in a different way now. It is not about being sheep who follow each other, it is about discovering what makes each of us happy and living that life but being a part of the whole at the same time. We were misled into thinking selfishly that life was about what each of us needs and wants regardless of how we attained that, who we had to step on to get it. Our new life is all about being one, but allowing each other to be the individuals they are at the same time and respecting that. To live a sacred life one must have respect for all of life. Without respect there is no oneness, and you remain trapped in the old paradigm.

The new world has soft edges honed out of kindness and giving and caring. It is no longer sharp and severe and cold. The new world is asking us to let go, to release the old beliefs that restrict us and to open our hearts and see the beauty life has to offer if we choose to be gentle. The new world is not the cruel, brutal, murderous world we have witnessed. That is the illusion of the old paradigm we must forget. It is a matter of being willing to see the world through new eyes and establishing new beliefs. We have a choice of watching and believing in the old ways exploding all around us, or saying no, I choose to see life through kind and loving and open eyes. I choose to care about all others and stop seeing the world as divided into groups. It is being willing to say no when the old ways are demanding that we accept war and death and callousness, and instead embracing our abilities to love, communicate, accept, respect and care about all others and refusing to be a part of the fight. We can all do this, we can all choose to live our lives in sacredness and become a part of the new world.

Blessings to all,

REALLY Walking Our Talk…

Favim.com-alone-beautiful-girl-street-walking-148909Photo Source:

I’ve been quiet lately, not really sharing my thoughts. I’ve been battling my own demons and working to set them loose as well as just trying to find ways to survive the full frontal assault by the dark ones. These are definitely insane times that demand our apt attention to what we are thinking and doing at all times. It is far too easy to fall into the death grip of what is happening. I was channel surfing the other evening and happened to cruise by a news station that was going on and on about the drought in the West and how new rules were being put into place to try and save water consumption. Really? It of course infuriated me as it is the Chemtrailing and weather modification being blasted upon the west coast that has not only caused the drought, but could very well end it if it so desired, yet it is the people as always, who must bear the brunt of this catastrophe and suffer. I was born I guess with the Justice gene as anytime I witness injustice in the world it drives me crazy. It angers me terribly and so I try to stay away from news as it is almost always filled with injustice against the people.

I went out for a walk after witnessing this latest bash of injustice being rammed down peoples throats to try and calm down and reconnect with nature. I kept asking myself and spirit as I walked along just what is it that we can be doing that we aren’t doing that is allowing what is going on to continue. What can we do? So I asked myself” What would Gandhi do? I realized first off that no matter what we decide to do, we must have FAITH. We must sincerely believe in our hearts that we can do whatever it is we are planning and that we CAN make a difference. I think after being battered and abused for lifetimes, we tend to harbor a powerful voice that resides within that says “there’s nothing we can do to make things different.” Up until now that voice would most likely be speaking truth, but it is time for us to silence that voice and make a huge effort to have faith and belief and trust in ourselves and our abilities. We tend to be magnificent doubters and it is time for that to stop. Above all else we must learn to have faith in ourselves and in humanity itself. We cannot come together in unity if we do not have faith that we can all do this together if we are inspired and trust one another. Gandhi’s very core premise he worked from was inspiring the people to believe not only in himself and what he was doing, but in themselves and the power they possessed in unity.

It is not enough just to live in non-compliance( which is essential to our journey), one has to believe in what they are doing is making a difference. It is time now we all start to be non-compliant and most importantly believe what we are doing is the right thing to do! Stop feeding the beast as we so often hear this referred to. As long as we continue to live our lives exactly as we have been doing, nothing will change. We need to find ways to inspire ourselves as well as others to be non-compliant. That was the wealth Gandhi harbored within, he believed and had faith that what he was doing would change India’s plight to be free, plus he had the wonderful gift of being able to inspire others to follow him. This is what we need. A way to inspire others to follow us and to also believe that non-compliance is making a difference. It will take a strong being to walk in these shoes. Far too many people live in fear these days, fear of those who keep the key to our freedoms from us, those who threaten and abuse us to gain their control over us. As long as we cower in fear and obey their every demand our situation will remain dire. We have not seen another Gandhi pop up in the world to travel about spreading his inspirations unfortunately, but maybe it is possible to work the internet in inspiring ways that pull in the masses to follow along. It is certainly worth a try.

Gentle reminders are a great way to stay on track and focused on what we are doing. A colorful bracelet with the lettering NON-COMPLIANCE may inspire some to remember how to live their new lives of non-compliance and to stand up for themselves at long last! Every time you saw it on your wrist or saw it on other people, it would help you remember and it would create unity and a reason to communicate and join together with each other as well as spread the word. We all need to be Gandhi’s and make how we live our lives our statement of who we really are. Are we cowards who avoid the masters lashes by doing as we are told, or are we stronger than that? Are we Gandhi’s who have faith in ourselves and in changing the world around us for the better no matter what happens to us because our belief in being free takes precedent? I think most people would opt for the latter. Gandhi really was no different than you or I except that he had a vision and a true devotion to that vision and he never harbored doubt about his mission. I would love nothing better than seeing thousands and millions of colorful bracelets wrapped around the wrists of people all over the world and all those people talking amongst themselves and giving each other the inspiration to keep going, to stay strong and to fight for the right to be who they really are. It is time to REALLY walk our talk and makes these changes happen through our actions. It is time to be the new Gandhi’s.

Blessings to us all,
