Since my last urge to write (Ascent into Chaos), I have found myself in varying enquiries about the apparent trajectory on which we find ourselves. Many are troubled…agitated… about what may well lie ahead.
I can appreciate that some would conclude that we’re doomed. The way I see it, being ‘white’ makes it less aggressive… and being ‘old’ makes it more likely. There will always be a requirement for a level of ‘human assets’ (worker/slave bees) that will be necessary until the planet shifts beyond capacity to sustain life for humanoid forms. Every piece fits in with and sustains every other piece.
We are brought up on ‘fairy tales’… on stories of good always vanquishing evil; tales of rescues and returns from the dead. (See? We weren’t really ‘dead’ – we were just sleeping…). Mind-set. Mind-share. The war for our minds is so invasive that we don’t even notice that we can own it for ourselves. To do so demands waking up and self-sourcing a conscious, sustained, intentional, relevant, directed and highly-focused effort for personal evolution (not to solve an immediate problem but for its own sake) to ensure the likelihood of success. And still, in truth, there are no guarantees.
I now stand on the finely honed edge of a gleaming and deadly blade: yes, I do believe we are on a track that will take us into the side of the mountain, at full speed; and, I also know that MY life is MINE to shape and direct… to make choices FOR and ABOUT that allow me to be informed and aware and awake within what appears to be the likely and inevitable outcome, on a scale beyond my control. Nonetheless, I refuse to relinquish control over the Life… MY Life… that I can shape in every single breath, from one breath to the next… until I no longer am able to do so. When one stands on the edge of the blade, one better damn well stay awake! Standing in that place takes courage and determination, and it also requires exceptional balance. It is in the absence of these that real chaos ensues.
It is all true and real. As awake, aware and intentional Beings of Light, we are well able to hold two authentic and competing ’truths’ at the same time and choose the path that we will take. Every single day I remind myself that only I can ensure that my choices are a reflection of WHAT I hold mySelf to be and who I choose to become. There are many others who also know this same truth and the potential for Life that comes with it.
Fear is the mind-killer. So-called main-stream (i.e. prevalent, invasive and non-stop in its pursuit of mind-share) media does its very best to ensure that fear takes the lead; telling me the world is in chaos and I should run and hide! Tells me that cities are burning, the military is being called in and disruption leads the way. And still, I look out my window and what I see is a sunny, blue sky; budding leaves on the trees outside my window; stillness through my neighbourhood, as the wind cools the day. THE world is doing what it’s doing – MY world is also doing what it’s doing. Where I choose to focus my attention and from which those choices are directed… well… it does not merit the coverage of CNN and it most certainly calms my Soul.
It is all true… like it is true that I am both – at the same time! – Signal and matter. In the simple decision to choose ’Signal’ my Life expands and courses through the highways of wellness in the matter that it directs. My Life is good… and I do not lament that others choose otherwise for themselves. I have spent 30 years of my life ’trying’ to change that for another. And today, I look back and consider: it is what it is. My Life will be expanded by letting go.
