The Shadow Knows


otherside2-2sm Do you find yourself wondering, “What in the world is going on?” Wasn’t 2012 supposed to be the beginning of ‘The New Earth’? Now, here we are approaching the middle of 2016 and if you watch the evening news it doesn’t look that good.

On the other hand, there’s a groundswell of magnificence rising up through the crumbling outdated paradigms. Yoga and meditation have become mainstream. A powerful sense of community is being created around neighborhood gardens as well as farmers markets and a commitment to healthy organic food. The belief in and connection with one’s soul and spirit has become daily conversation and practice. Many young and old marching together for social justice.

How can these two realities live side by side? The “Course in Miracles” states, “Love brings up everything unlike itself.” As the shadow aspects of our humanity loom large, our response is the answer. Again, the “Course” states, “Everything is either an expression of love or a call for love.”

At this pivotal time in human evolution, how do you nourish and support the new world that is rising up from the crumbling ashes of the old dying structures? Following are some ways you can assist this new rising:

1. Plug into nature
2. Love everyone you encounter, including yourself. Grow the love.
3. Meditate
4. Read spiritual literature

As Jimmy Hendrix said,

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.”

We are definitely headed in the right direction.
