Getting It Right….

I am not sure where I am going with this post, but basically I am speaking to where we are today and where we need to be. Sadly we are miles apart. A few days ago I posted an article about the cause and effects of social media and what it is doing to society. I wish people had read it because it is so important for us to understand the situation we find ourselves in today! At such a critical time in our evolving as humans and where we are going next, we need people paying attention and holding themselves accountable. I always say if we are going to get ourselves back on the right track, we have to know first that we’ve even fallen off and we have.

We are never going to undo this mess if we humans as a whole don’t stop being distracted and start paying attention.  Social media, as the above article explains, is tearing us apart not bringing us together.  The Genie is out of the bottle and we will find it very difficult to undo what has been done, but hopefully we don’t allow ourselves to be sucked into the great abyss any further.  It is time to face the fact that America’s and the world’s favorite obsession has become smart phones. Clever little name they gave such a destructive device. The phone may well be smart but rest assured we the people are getting dumber by the minute! We no longer think for ourselves and our brains muscles are  weakening and need exercise just as our bodies do.

The only way we are going to get back on the right path towards evolving as human beings will be when we finally raise our consciousness up to the next level. It is time to lose our tadpole tails and become frogs. This is what Albert Einstein meant by his quote about not being able to change our situation with the same minds that created this problem in the first place. We should stop numbing ourselves out with distractions such as smart phones and place our intentions on moving forward, raising up our consciousness and leaving all of this chaos we are creating behind. We are SO MUCH better than this.

It would certainly help if we stopped ourselves from being brainwashed by our smart phones and started interacting with other people face to face and exercise our true conversational skills not our tweet skills. What so many fail to fully realize is whom this technology is affecting and with devastating results. It is our children, the next generation and other generations to come who are being affected. They are the next in line to take over but are they capable?  We are being brainwashed from all directions and what is most disturbing is what our schools are pushing into innocent minds. Our children are being groomed to become certain voters who will carry on this sick agenda by whom they vote for. It is all about control, not about living our lives as WE wish.

In order to raise our consciousness we need to start exercising our brains and looking for new ways to perceive life than what we have been told. I am all for progress but only if nobody gets hurt in the process. If we proceed along our path, heads buried in our smart phones, not asking questions or looking for the truth about life, we are not challenging ourselves, we are not learning and growing, we are merely existing. So many people are addicted to drugs and alcohol, their smart phones and computers, social media etc. because we are empty within. Somewhere deep inside we know there is more to life but for some reason we have allowed ourselves to remain stagnant. I believe we fear having to give up our addictions despite the fact we may know they are bad. Addictive needs are extremely difficult to break.

It is time to sever our ties with what we have been told to believe in and set out on a journey to find the truth and embrace new ways of believing.  We are NOT robots here in our lives to work 9-5 day after day and not experience life through freedom to pursue more meaning in our lives. Start reading again if you have put down books in favor of phones. Stretch your mind by asking questions, trying to figure things out and more importantly finding new answers. Create challenges for yourself to conquer and when you do, set the bar higher for the next one. Push yourselves to become more instead of just settling for what is. It does not need to be this way. Figure out your greatest fears and face them head on. When fear is eliminated we allow more room within to become more of who we are and what we can be. Loving. Honor strong morals and integrity because they are becoming a thing of the past and society will implode without them.

As the holidays draw near let us look for the true meaning of Christmas, not fall yet again into the trap of a corporate Christmas. It is not about presents, it is about giving and caring for others besides ourselves. It is about reaching out to others and offering our help. It is about seeing suffering and stopping to do something about it not just passing it by.  It is about waking up to what IS and realizing the pitfalls of what WAS. It is paying attention to our journeys and seeing what needs to be changed and doing something about it. I find it very disturbing to see humanity floundering and lost in life because they have been led astray from living their lives mindfully. We have been taught to stop thinking for ourselves, stop doing for ourselves, stop questioning everything so we are free to give our undivided attention to our smart phones. NO!

The greatest Christmas gift we can give to others is to awaken to truth, accept the truth even as disturbing as it may be, and removing ourselves from this situation we are now in, by choosing to live a better life. The choice is ours. We can continue to follow along and do as we are told, or strike out on a wild journey to finding a better way to live. To the younger generation who seems to choose being lost in the abyss of technology I say that is not the answer. The change you seek can only be found by partaking in life and joining forces with others to create the change you wish to see.

I think we all need to make ourselves more aware of what we are doing to life as we know it, consciously or unconsciously! If we go too far( have we already?) perhaps we won’t find our way back. Time to awaken and take stock in our actions and their consequences. This is all very disturbing but info we all need to be aware of.  As if we all didn’t already know. Here is the article I am speaking about. The answer to this dilemma can be found I believe in the picture I chose to use! Happy hunting !

Magic…

I don’t intend to write a long post right now, I am more just sharing my thoughts as to what has been on my mind today. Whenever I keep bumping into certain words everywhere I seem to go, I pay attention. Lately I keep coming upon the word, Magic. I believe very strongly in Magic, for life without it would be empty. Magic has a way of making disinterested people become explorers of life and of themselves. Once on this journey one begins to realize how dull and meaningless life was without Magic and more importantly, how little they even knew about themselves before going down this path. It is astounding to realize how much of life has gone by before you find you are awake enough to finally embrace it fully. Hopefully the newest generations are catching on much more quickly because they are more evolved at an earlier age.

What is magic to me? All kinds of things. Like when I was just standing on my porch watching the snow pour down on the mountains around me making the valley below invisible. Snow in its own way is magic. To stand and listen to the dense silence all around except for the snow flakes falling to earth. That is magic. You are awake and aware and open enough to receive the thrill of watching beauty unfold. Or perhaps it is a moment of synchronicity that speaks to you at just the right time for just the right reason and everything is resonating in harmony. It is exciting to feel and if one pays attention to the message it brings there is usually a journey attached. Follow it! Don’t question it, just do it In other words begin to practice faith and belief.  It comes bearing deeper insights and wonderment. Have you ever asked for a sign to guide you, like a feather or a stone and one appears?  Or how about  seeing certain numbers like 11/11 or certain totem animals that come into our lives bearing messages as well, if we pay attention. There in lies the secret. Stay aware, pay attention. Magic is all around you.

This may sound like a lot of woo woo to many but these are the small yet impactful moments in life that make us go, wow! There is far too little WOW in most people’s lives and wow is what makes it all so interesting. Bad or good, we learn from both which helps us grow which broadens our thinking and eases us further outside the box. Part of what is wrong today is how rigid we are in our boxes and we protect those boxes for dear life because risk taking and new thinking are threats to our old ways of being. I always say the war going on today is a war of our minds but really it is a war of ego. It is holding on for it’s very existence and we are trying to let it go so we can be free at last. Interesting times these are and I promise they are even more interesting if you add a bit of magic everyday.

Blessings to all,

December 2017:
When Walls Tumble Down

By British Artist Josephine
Shortly before midnight U.S. eastern time, December 19, the Lord of Karma, Saturn, enters Capricorn for three years. The last time Saturn passed through Capricorn the Berlin Wall came down, which is a good reminder of the walls that need to topple in our own time.
The high calling of Saturn in Capricorn is to see yourself not just as you are but as  you’re intended to be — to view your life as gods and angels see it. From that vantage point, which we all can rise to, though few of us manage to sustain it on a day-to-day basis, who you are and what you’re doing is crystal clear: you were born to give the unique gift of your true inner nature to this world, which can only be given when you dig down into what you’re really made of. Once you dig through layers of ego, emotional wounds, past scars and illusion, you’re made of the kind of love so strong it’ll light the universe. You’re made of stars. Even literally — the iron in your blood came from white dwarf stars that exploded on the other side of the galaxy and sent their life’s blood to our planet. The nitrogen that makes our atmosphere breathable was dropped off here by comets passing from the deepest reaches of space.
During times of great social unrest, violence and distortion — like the 1960’s and the current time — our task remains the same — to tear down the walls that keep us from the truth of love and the truth of truth.
By Art Durand

Saturn is Lord of Karma and karma is the gift the gods gave us to keep us on the track of our soul. The Law of Karma states that every action will have an equal and opposite reaction. If you’ve spent lifetimes getting lost in sex, politics, ego, health, love or money, the only way you can clear that karma is if it comes back again — not to punish you — but to offer your greatest opportunity to awaken in the very place you’re most asleep. That kind of awakening sends the walls tumbling down.
