I would like to give a big THANK YOU to ……… acne! I’d like to thank it for opening my eyes, and helping me to take a big leap in consciousness.
December 21st is tomorrow. It’s the big date. Maybe you don’t really care – you don’t think it’s anything special, or even worse… you’ve bought into the fear that maybe something bad is going to happen… doomsday, dun dun dunnn.
The world’s not ending tomorrow so get over it. What is happening though is that people are starting to wake up. I don’t think this is something that starts tomorrow – it’s already happening. In fact, I can tell… it IS already happening at a very accelerated rate. Maybe after tomorrow it will speed up even more.
What is consciousness? What is awakening? What does that meeean?
I know it sounds all new agey, spiritual, out-of-your-league.. but it’s not like that. Well I guess it’s kind of like that, but it’s definitely not out of your league. It’s real and obtainable with a simple opening of the eyes. And it’s imperative in these chaotic times that more and more people do open their eyes if we want something different for the future than what is happening now.
To quote the documentary that I watched last night,
To me, consciousness is waking up to this and seeing it for what it truly is: a charade; an illusion. People in control WANT us to stay dumb. They want us to be asleep. It benefits them if we stay as mindless cogs in their machine, conforming to “normal”, denying who you are and the true gifts you have to give – work as a slave every day at a job you hate; job security is all you have in life; freedom starts at 65; consume; consume; consume; rules; rules; rules; hate yourself; fear your neighbour; stay distracted; don’t open your mind; if you do you will see – and they do this through numerous ways, the big one being the fear spouted off in the mainstream media. And also the assinine commercials and programming on television. Advertising everywhere you turn. Others include processed food and pharma drugs, the structure of the school system, and the fear and guilt often associated with organized religion. Let’s not forget “the war on drugs” and “the war on terror”.
The more fear the better. The more numbed we are the better. The more distracted we are the better. The more we fear losing, the more they can control us. The more awake we are to the reality, the worse it is for them.
That is why they have put a negative spin on tomorrow’s date. They know that more and more people are waking up to the game and it freaks them out big time. They are grasping at straws to keep the fear alive because they are full of fear themselves.
You may have noticed more and more people are catching on to the whole act and it’s in big part to the internet and the free sharing of information. Before the internet, the ways people got their information was largely from the news; television; newspapers. Information that is controlled; edited; censored. Of course books were available, but even those are subject to a publisher’s whim and information was not shared as easily and as accessibly.
I believe that our consciousness is linked to one another … everyone’s individual consciousness influences the global consciousness. We are droplets in an ocean, the earth and universe and everything in it is the whole. We are part of the whole. The earth is an organism and we are its cells. We are all the same, living life subjectively.
When the majority of people live in fear, that becomes the prevailing mood of the earth and it creates separation from one another; war; chaos; greed. When the majority of people live in love, that becomes the prevailing mood and it brings us together to create positive change.
All it is is a choice between love and fear. In order for us to have a positive future on this planet (and times right now are critical), all it is is a choice – a choice to stay numb and fearful, or a choice to embrace oneness and focus on a positive future. There is nothing specific you need to do on 2012 and beyond except to make that choice. It’s just an attitude. And when you allow yourself to be who you truly are, and accept people the way they truly are, away from all that conditioning, you will awaken to the gifts you were meant to give the world. And what those gifts are are perfect. They are exactly what the world needs. And finally you will be able to give them.
Acne was what punched me in the face and said “WAKE UP!”. If it weren’t for going through that painful experience, I would have stayed fearful and numb. Why not? Life was comfortable enough. I hadn’t any reason to question whether the government was on my side or doctors were on my side or whether I was doing the things that made me happy. I just wanted to fit in and be “normal”. It wasn’t until my life felt in shatters as my face was covered in acne that I questioned why is this happening to me. How could this be? What’s not working here?
But now I feel a lot more alive; proud that I am awake to it. And I’ve awaken to my calling to make a positive difference in the world. I feel like I’m now part of the solution, and a hope for a positive future CHOOSE LOVE!!!
Everyone watch this film if you can, it’s so wonderful and inspiring and so powerfully wraps up all these thoughts I have been having. Happy December 21st tomorrow… I am going to be going and meditating on our positive future on this planet with a group of local people, and it sounds like many across the world will be doing the same. Let’s toast to a new beginning!
If you don’t have time to watch all that (it’s pretty long), here’s a different clip from a fun-to-watch web series I really like called Spirit Science (it’s only 12 minutes):
And if you don’t have time to watch THAT, at least watch this clip from comedian Bill Hicks (it’s only 3 minutes!):
