A leap in the dark
Looking at the current affairs on Earth one could assume that we are close to an apocalypse which will be followed by the great deluge and indeed occurring scenes are evocative of old myths and historical events.
In this time of extremes correspondents and experts of all kinds specialize merely either in evidences and statistics or in pure ethereous constructions and the interpretation of symbols. Confused or blinded by all those found and yet to be found informations most people have become unable to grasp an actual content and the vast majority of the so-called folks cling to theories and life models that have long ago transpired, have been proven obsolete or are totally unacceptable if we think about them objectively. Life seems to have become unlivable or at least a roll play that is hard to survive.
Truth, knowledge, meaning and values are increasingly lost in the fog.
The viral spread cold of human hearts affects and awakens those who are still able to feel deeply and hold on to sanity and reason.
After all these past centuries wars on power and property, about race and gender, against religions or ideologies, they slowly become aware that the only war which is collectively fought on planet earth today is a war of frequencies. These human beings are getting ready to break out of an externally imposed and internally cultivated bubble of individuation and isolation that seems to be as unstoppable as climate change if we don not alter our behavior.
In order to set our future focus clearly we might need to change perspectives, take a deep clear sighted dive into reality gain some reorientation. Ancient knowledge and modern science both describe that we – as actively thinking and creating beings – decide where our limited life energy goes to. Through willingly conducted energy situations and things are manifested.
Maybe it is about time to seize the chance and give this knowledge a go. Why not? After we seized the chance to try infinite material- and personal growth for such a long time…Let´s be honest…this last chance we seized made us become more and more impressed by various images, shadows, theories and an ever-increasing flow of information, it led us into an age of distraction including the revaluation of all words and symbols, then it left us obsessed with psychological, social, spiritual power and powerlessness games that cross any borders even below belt lines until in the end we succumb to an illusion and thus can be used as projection screens.
There are many evacuators of doomsday scenarios nowadays, but contradicting those there are also a huge amount of people that have evaluated insights and were able to evolve a level of comprehension that will surely be followed by a climate change, a climate change that starts inside of an individual. The change inside will alter the personal relationships and atmosphere that surrounds a person and at some point there could be a change on a political, social and societal level. Let’s imagine it would be possible to lead a peaceful life in harmony with all life forms on our planet.
It is often emphasized that we currently live in “information age”. So let’s be aware: information is light. We feed our system -holistically- with light. In the shadow area lies the uncertain, the hidden, the other, all that which we do not know, see or have reached so far yet.
Throughout our lifetimes we are constantly moving from darkness to light. We dive into unexplored depths in order to fish new insights again and again. This is evolution, science and art. We collect information in order to bring light into darkness,. The more we analyze, transform and use the found information, the more light we can shed on something. Once we have sufficiently illuminated a topic, a situation or a process, we return to what has not yet been explored, to the yet unnamed which lies in the invisible. This procedure corresponds to the principle of yin and yang, day and night, sun and moon and all cycles on this planet.
We have learned to distinguish. Following the principle of growth, we differentiate exceedingly. Because -as we get told-everything wants to progress further, grow, should create abundance, but also everyone and everything seizes to be separated, conform to plurality and worship the diversity that is everywhere. Thus a thinking person is able to define extensively precisely, but also hardly able to commit to anything or spend time for diving deeper any more. We have learned to reassure ourselves through knowledge building, analysis and evidence. However, the specialization in sub-areas and the narrowness of human skills include a problem: Everything that appears to be secure is opposed by uncertainty. Once we hold on to a particular narrative or belief, even if it is science, once we dissect and quote the same or a past story over and over again, we naturally get stuck in a theory which is limited by the time or person, by a society or the circumstances which gave rise to this theory. Any system devised by any person is such a limited theory. If we don’t constantly expand it by allowing access to the flow of life, the creation of the new and unknown, we can merely create stagnation or reproduce a method that no longer fits into this day and age. Maintaining such a system forever is an extremely risky endeavor.
Every system in this world has hitherto come to an end. It has changed or failed, been overthrown or superseded. The same happens to systems that have been created inside a humans body and mind.
Life, love and soul are never limited. According to their nature they are like water; meaning they are steadily flowing, open-ended, constantly changing and thereby they are fulfilling or expanding themselves. Life is not a line in between a beginning and an end. It is a cycle. Knowing this, we are secured that situations can and will change. The question is: do we want a change? I suppose we want that.
What we are, think and feel will be true for one future moment. What we were, thought and felt has now become a partial truth. We are currently experiencing a shift in consciousness. The world no longer works the way we are used to and what we’ve been taught for thousands of years seems to function no longer. Therefore it feels out of joint for many people. Media reacts and spreads countless negative or zero information. But collectively we yearn for something else and that yearning must be followed by a decision: the decision to no longer engage ourselves with what has past or what is recognized to be bad and therefore open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts widely in order to see clearly what is real and what is needed instead.
So how could we emerge out of the fog and reach some more clarity? Perhaps by venturing within. From within comes a lot of information and this kind of information is just as important as the information that pours in from the outside. Through introspection I learned: I cannot change the world or others. But whatever happens, I CAN change myself. This freedom can never be taken from me by no-one. I also learned that it is healthy (at least for me personally) to mostly stay away from media of all kind and become a medium myself. I prefer to write these words that emanate from within. Possibly I might reach and carry a few others away by inviting them to swim in a river that is already flowing in a new direction. By aligning our antennas to positive sources and directing energies in a specific course, we radiate into our environment, maybe we can emanate the souls of some fellow human beings and thus -at some point- bring about an inside-out and peaceful change.
If I exceptionally deal with positive thoughts and actions for a while and then start to draw information from within I will receive information which -using deep-listening, feeling and thinking, I can learn a lot from. The kind of information provided by pure being through breathing time and visiting the inner space will nurture my system, engage my awareness and grow my consciousness. By dissolving delusions and confusion I can let go of control because I am clear in mind and therefore I feel safe. When I feel safe, confident, and trusting, I don’t allow myself to be reduced, regulated, directed, controlled, or manipulated. Yes and No are equal value. I call this lived polarity.
Life is not only about surviving. Life is never right or wrong. We tend to say just live and let live…but… I guess we should care at least a bit about how we and others live. Life and love are indivisible parts that function as a whole. They are gifts that, over time, are fulfilled with everything that flows and vibrates. The more love we experience, the more we have within and the more love we give, the more we become open to receive. Loving life means being a oneness with the world including everything it offers and shows us. Our collective and personal past with all those dramas and traumas, karma is also a part of life. Every life memory -loveable or unloveable-carries a powerful potential to sense history and thus recognize and develop a central theme that helps us to view an overall picture and finally provides us with the empirical value that is needed to follow the call of our soul and take the challenge to walk through life by changing and creating a very personal and original path.
“According to the Chaldean Scriptures, God warned the hero of the flood (Noah) and commanded him to build a vehicle, because “by a flood I will destroy matter and life. Let the substance of all that has life ascend into this vehicle.”” 1
Reading this sentence with my nowadays consciousness at this actual time in space, I would react in a complete different way from Noah. I would not try to save everything that is matter and life and therefore condemned to be destroyed by God. I would rather ask: “What IS the substance of everything?” and I claim: It is love. A human wants to live and love. This is the human calling. Again, essentially a human is like water. In motion it is healthy. Stagnant water has no life energy, just as little as stagnant thoughts or systems that stand in the way of a natural and free unfolding. A society is made up of many individuals. If you take away an individuals true calling, you block their heart energy and therefore their life mission. This will be transferred to the spiritual level and thus to the social system which, in the long run, can only fall ill.
Once we understand, allow, integrate and live synergies our soul, mind and body will be balanced and our life can be transformed into a river that flows towards change through self-fulfillment and soul growth. If we can no longer identify with legislation or case law, we can always refer to the laws of nature: in nature everything strives for balance. We are a part of nature. When we act against it, we act against ourselves. Have we not seen enough of what that entails?
From now on I choose to act in accordance with the laws of nature and exercise my birthright to be a human. That grants me a good conscience. If I have a good conscience because I am in agreement with my inner code of values- whatever may happen outside- I can live in peace with myself and thus able say goodbye gratefully at the end of this life. Feels like bright prospects!
By being attentive I can notice directly whether something changes through my thinking and acting. That gives me self-responsibility which makes me conquer the swoon and empower myself. As self-sufficient, sensitive and creative people, we can question old, current and new concepts, check their truthfulness, evaluate them, if necessary drop them and take the scepter into our own hands.
By approaching life holistically confusion is erased and realization is enforced. This allows me to communicate, share and work. By trusting I create trust. First into myself, then into others and then into the world. That is self-acceptance. By acting, I feel meaningful, caring and important. That creates self-confidence. From now on I will not separate me from my Self and never act against my original being. That is called authenticity.
Through absolute honesty I create clarity for myself and others. I experience the polarity of living life on planet earth in times of duality: Not all is good, full of love and light, but also: Not all is bad, full of hate and darkness. I communicate exactly what I feel. Without judgement, simply and clearly, hoping this way I might cause less confusion knowing that the other might still misunderstand.
When we open our minds and hearts and adopt ourselves with all that we are, I assume we can accept the opinions and moods of others much better because we don’t feel endangered but enriched, inspired by everything different or new, by every discussion. By giving time and space we can learn and grow through every conflict.
I intend to give and receive openly, to balance my feminine and masculine principles, I intend to experience abundance and joy through this creative freedom. While sorting and filtering streams of information that come from within and streams of information that come from outside and by consciously investing my time and attention, I create a binding guideline for my personal lifework. In this way, I silence the merry-go-round of thoughts in my head and find myself in the power center of my heart. If-collectively- we could be in our midst more often, wouldn’t we gradually reclaim a sense of community, cohesion and livability? I imagine a free and self-responsible life in which we are thinking instead of rethinking, simplifying instead of complicating, sharing instead of redistributing, taking one step at a time in our chosen direction.
We are part of the universe, part of this wonderful planet. We ARE life changing characters in constant flux as tiny ingredients of a human history. We are part of a problem and part of a solution. Each part is of equal value as a part of one wholeness and therefore equally entitled. I wonder – if that basic knowledge would manifest in us- could we possibly initiate a change in values and create a society in which the majority is no longer concerned with profit and competition, but engaged with heart and mind?
Instead of being afraid we could be excited about and open to the new and other. We could curiously step into the wild river and learn how to swim freely. Instead of running in circles, we could spiral out into new spheres that are created by a swirling stream of heartfelt desires and positive thoughts which align with true humanity. Maybe God wanted to tell Noah: “Love is the greatest power on earth, the essence and substance of everything. Our heart is love´s vehicle and from there it rises and affects every atom worldwide.”
Ahead of us does not wait an apocalyptic deluge but the cosmopolitan ocean of infinite possibilities. Let’s think outside the box and embark on a journey with this seminal vehicle whose engine is fueled by our dreams and whose steering wheel is controlled by our minds.
Love believes in us. Life trusts us.
Whether we believe and trust, how we love and what we live lies in our responsibility.
