The World Is Waking Up
Facing the Shadows
We are living in extraordinary times. It is without question that the world is waking up. It is as if the blinders that were blocking our sight have been removed.
Human beings are realizing what it is to be a Conscious Creator.
Many individuals are no longer prescribing to the lies that we have been sold. They are tired of the corruption in politics and business. Take a look at the protesting that is going on in this country as well as in the rest of the world. There are so many countries involved that we cannot dismiss this as simply a group of wishful thinking individuals that want to complain for the sake of complaining. These brave souls want a world that is for the betterment of society.
The film “Thrive: What On Earth Will It Take” is due out on 11/11/11. The film asks the question:
“Why aren’t we thriving as a species?”
This is an extremely important question to consider. Why do we allow thousands of people to die of starvation? Why are we still using fossil fuels that pollute the environment when we have the technology to produce cars that do not pollute? Why are we allowing our education system to crumble? Our children are our future. Education is something we cannot afford to waste. I feel this movie will get the dialog started. We cannot afford to ignore the problems. Sweeping society’s problems underneath the carpet does not solve anything. We are at a time in history in which we all have to face our shadows. We have the power to overcome our problems. We have the power to change our world for the better. As Gandhi has said,
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
The Paradigm Is Shifting
What we are seeing in the world is a collapse of an old corrupt system that solely supports the 1% and a new system that is taking its place based on Unity Consciousness. Companies and politicians that are acting unethical are being exposed. Dishonesty and corruption cannot exist in this new paradigm. There are far too many people that know the truth. Those that think they can fool humanity are mistaken.
Despite this economic crisis that we are facing, humanity is reaching out to help their fellow brothers and sisters. Even when natural disasters wreck havoc on towns and cities, compassionate human beings do not fail to lend a helping hand.
We are also seeing this shift in consciousness in books, films, documentaries, music, lectures, art, the people we converse with, as well as other mediums and avenues. There are so many books about this new consciousness that there are too many to mention. I do want to mention the works of Gregg Braden, Deepak Chopra, and Bruce Lipton. These wonderful souls have bridged science and spirituality.
The documentary “What the Bleep Do We Know?” is another example of science and spirituality merging. The film explores quantum physics and spirituality. Then we have “The Secret;” it is a documentary that explores the Law of Attraction:
We draw things to us by our thoughts and emotions.
In this Information Age, people are drawn to lectures and workshops. It was a privilege to see David Wilcock’s lecture in Pala, California. David, like the others I have mentioned, integrates science and spirituality. I am currently enjoying his new book entitled “The Source Field Investigations.” On September 11, this book made the New York Times bestseller list. These are just a few examples of this new shift of consciousness that we are a part of.
Making the World a Better Place
As I have said in many articles, we are powerful Creators. There are so many ways in which we can do our part in making the world a better place. We only have to listen to our hearts.
What resonates with you?
Perhaps you are one that would like to heal the world through kindness. Maybe you prefer meditation. There are scientific studies that prove that meditation has positive effects on the world. Then, we have those that prefer praying. Others may enjoy helping the world through creativity, such as music and writing. Einstein said that “imagination is more important than intelligence.”
We can individually and collectively create the world we wish to see.
There are those that make the world a better place through their positivity. They are the ones that put positive quotes on Facebook to inspire others. Then we have those that do their part through direct action, such as protesting. Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. used Civil Disobedience in dealing with injustice. That is what we are seeing the protestors deal with today. Or you might be the individual that uses a little of everything in changing the world. There is no set formula. It is your decision.
The key point in all this is that we all can make a difference.
In fact, Gregg Braden shares in his book “The Divine Matrix” that “the square root of one percent of the population” is the minimum number people to instigate change. For example, in a city with a population of 300,000 people would require only 30 people to begin change. Now, imagine a 1000 people in the city focusing on positive change. Change would happen much faster.
As Neale Donald Walsch and others have said,
"We are the ones we've been waiting for!"
