Hello dear readers and thank you for taking the time to connect here with me during this difficult time. I speak of the recent Paris terrorist attacks, and also include the numerous other events in Beirut, the downing of the Russian airliner and many other events that seem to never end. I am writing because I feel the need to address the palpable fear and sadness that is affecting so many right now. Why is all of this happening and what can each of us do to heal it?
It does seem as if the world has gone mad, at least if you watch television or your social media feeds. So much violence, never ending wars, more and more examples of instability with huge refugee crises kneeling on so many countries doorsteps. Politicians preaching either war or xenophobia, or just sitting on the fence pretending nothing is happening. What in creation is going on? Aren't we supposed to be moving into Light and Love and leaving all of this behind? In short, yes we are. However there is some "house-cleaning" to do as we go through this process. Let's dive in and examine what is happening now.
It is interesting to note that the identified attackers in the Paris attacks were mostly under 30 years old. They grew up, mostly in Europe, and at some point became radicalized. They turned toward an ideology that is not Islam, but pretends to represent that faith. Ever since 9/11 we have "Islamophobia" because of that horrendous attack, and now people are going as far as saying this is the beginning of the "End Times" and we must protect ourselves from these "others", namely people from the Middle East part of the world. It is not the end times, it is the beginning of a new world.
Out of chaos and strife, compassion is born. What is compassion? It is the passion of knowing what we want and what we do not want. It is the compass, the direction we will take. It is the pass, the option of doing nothing. It is clear to me that we cannot do nothing and expect things to get better. Pass also means that we can pass on the idea that meeting violence with more violence will solve anything, it doesn't. Here is a quote from the Dalai Lama that illustrates this point:
At the end of his talk someone from the audience asked the Dalai Lama, "Why didn't you fight back against the Chinese?" The Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, "Well, war is obsolete, you know." Then, after a few moments, his face grave, he said, "Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back ... but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you."
So here we are faced with witnessing a great battle between the heads and hearts of people all across this planet. Not all are at the same point of their understanding of why they exist in such conditions. Those who are born in good conditions rarely question it or give gratitude for their place, while those born in poor conditions are often so overwhelmed with the task of daily survival that they have no time to think of improving their condition or that they even could get the opportunity to do so. Yet, on the level of the soul, we are not different. We are all part of this human journey.
We are each in their own way and own time, awakening from millenniums of spiritual amnesia. For literally thousands of years we, and our ancestors have been existing in a area of vibration known as the 3rd dimension. We have now traversed through the 4th dimension and are now in the vibrations of the 5th dimension, a.k.a. 4th density consciousness. This rapid shift in such a short time span was requested by us at a soul level, by the collective of humanity, in order to continue our journey on this planet. Without the allowance of Grace from the higher realms, none of us would be embodied here now. Instead, we now are in the midst of a great transformation of consciousness and a re-ordering of life as we have known it. Yes, it will take time, and it IS happening.
One can only look at all of the children being born and be certain that life is to continue. The world that these children are born into and will live in is vastly different than the one we have been living in for the past half century. No one can speak to exactly what is to unfold, for the future is written by all of us here in the present, choosing how we will use our compassion.
While I saw great sadness and fear as a result of the Paris attacks, I also saw a great resolve and much compassion for the victims of the attacks and the French people as a whole. I saw many expressing that they stand together in all of this, and won't be brought into fear. These attacks are having the opposite effect their perpetrators intended. They are strengthening the resolve of people to demand peace, demand an end to the conflicts that have incubated these heinous acts. This is not about religion, nor is it about clashing ideologies. It is about peace. It is about the increasing amount of spiritual light that is flooding onto the planet and into the hearts of people everywhere. Some so fear the Light that they will fight to the end of their human existence to keep things the way they have been. This, thankfully, is not going to happen. Yes, there will be more trials to come, just keep in mind that it is by standing for liberty and peace that true prosperity will come to all in the coming times.
Look out your window, is it not peaceful there? Look into the eyes of your loved ones, is there not peace and love there? You and I are surrounded by peace and by offering it to others we can expand it. In your quiet moments I invite you to offer your energy to enhancing the peace of others near or far. The energy and the potentialities of the 5th dimension allow this to occur with great ease. It is all you need to do. You are safe. You are loved. Continue to dream of your ideal world and together we will make it so.
