In Part 1 of this article we discussed how duality and the belief in separateness is a causal point for the problems of the world. Separateness leads to judgment and the need to make things and people as right or wrong, good or bad, win or lose. For corporations to win, the environment must lose. This is an insane way to view the world and manage our businesses and lives; yet this is what we do.
Last month we discussed how compassion unites us and that we do not have to wait for tragedy to awaken us to unity. We can do so right now. The path is simple and has always been available. You just have to choose it.
The Answer Lies Within
Simply go within, quiet the mind and listen. Listen for whispers. Whispers from God. This is reflected in the Native American view of God. It is said that God is “The Spirit who moves through all things.” If this is so, then God is in me and in you and in our neighbor and the homeless person down the street. God is in the impoverished billions who live on only a few dollars a day. God is in the trees, the rocks, the animals, and the air we breathe. God is everywhere. And God is always speaking to us but we are too busy to hear. We must, therefore, find stillness, quiet the mind and go into the silence within if we are to change our outer experience.
If you knew beyond a doubt that God was everywhere and in everything, how would you act? Who would you be? The mind cannot and never will understand the formless. In fact, it will resist your attempts at doing so since it means the mind (and its ego personality) will no longer rule your life. At the same time, though, you will no longer be ruled by any person, any circumstance or any thing.
The Gifts of the Kingdom Are Yours
Connecting to the God self within will set you free from all preconceived beliefs of right doing or wrongdoing. Being free means living fully in the present moment, responding consciously and powerfully to whatever arises in the moment. You will be in universal flow. You will be inspired by and conspire with Source to bring more of the good and holy so that heaven is created on earth, by you, for you, through you and within you. And all the gifts of the kingdom will be yours to enjoy.
In the words of the Sufi poet, Rumi, “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, … ideas, language, even the phrase ‘each other’ doesn’t make any sense.”
In such a state you will move forward to bring change to the world, not with anger, righteousness and condemnation but with faith, hope and love. These are the energies that masters command.
Consciousness Changes Everything
With the support of the masters and through you, your rising consciousness uplifts humanity. Consciousness becomes contagious and opens the path for others to follow. Consciousness changes everything.
If you want to change the quality of your relationships, then raise your consciousness. If you are tired of the current political system, then raise your consciousness. If you want to see an end to hunger, then raise your consciousness. Consciousness opens pathways unknown until its light makes them seen. Insurmountable problems suddenly have solutions. And when consciousness rises enough (through you and other like-minded souls), new forms come into matter … relationships are uplifted to a new state of joy, new politicians blessed with the consciousness of unity come into office, ways are found to feed the hungry, the earth’s environment heals.
You Make A Difference
In this state of awareness there is unity; there is only oneness. You have gone from the world of the relative to the absolute, the purest state of being. This is life mastery. And it is not as far away as you may think. Let go. Breathe. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Your choice to remain where you are or to raise your consciousness matters. You have much to contribute.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
