Reasons to Meditate
We are all Brothers and Sisters regardless of our cultural heritage. We will never know peace until we recognize this simple fact. In other words, we are all Brothers and Sisters on this earth plane, but in the higher levels of our consciousness, of our being, where there is no duality (feminine and masculine energies) we instinctively know and recognize we are all aspects of Source. We know and understand that we are Individualized Personalities of Source.
As individualized personalities, each soul or being is unique unto itself. On these levels consciousness is not fragmented even though it is Individualized. This is because all Beings recognize the truth of who they are and in doing so automatically honor the free will choices of all other Beings. Where there is no judgment there is no fragmentation of consciousness.
The planetary consciousness of this world is enmeshed in fear on most levels at this time, which causes it to be very fragmented.
In order for this world to experience Peace, humanity has to realize that now is the time to put aside all the cultural differences, religious differences, political differences, etc., that keeps humanity divided. It is time for this world to acknowledge women as equals to men in all areas of endeavor. To recognize that both sexes have their own unique attributes. As long as one aspect of society is suppressed so that another aspect can have power over it this world will never know Peace.
All of these things give cause for Brothers and Sisters to make war on each other and on the very planet we live on.
Individuals and organizations can get on soapboxes and tell other people what to do, how to do it, how to believe, etc. The world is full of people with great intent in their hearts but they empower their intentions through Judgment. Judgment is one of the more powerful ways to cause fragmentation and separation within an individual and the world they create for themselves and others. Anyone on a soapbox regardless of their intent is coming from a place of judgment and hence their ability to affect change comes from a negative place. This of course means their creations which reflect their judgments are going to be negative.
For example, let us look at someone who recognizes the destruction to the planetary environment because of the abuses of individuals and organizations. They become very angry because of this and decide the world needs to be changed. Their anger of course is grounded in their judgments and empowered from that place. The individuals and groups that are responsible are of course coming from a negative place themselves, a place where they can only perceive the little picture.
Because this individual is angry they link to the individuals or groups of people who they are in judgment of and empower those people and situations. Their anger will feed the negativity that rules those beings that are engaging in practices that destroy their own environment. This results in the environmental abusers becoming even stronger in their negativity at the expense of this person's own energies.
Anything that you judge in your experience is something that you empower energetically in a negative way. So the angry judgmental environmentalist contributes powerfully in a negative way to the very thing they despise. Whenever you use negativity to deal with negativity, the negativity just becomes stronger.
Someone who lives in fear is someone who is easily manipulated and controlled. They will find themselves being controlled by forces outside of themselves and by the very fears that they have created and given power to.
In order for fear to control you, it requires you to be totally disempowered so that your own creations, your fears can be your master.
Through learning to meditate in ways that gives you an opportunity to understand and master your fears, you will find yourself automatically opening up to the truth of who you are. And who you are is simply an eternal indestructible all powerful being choosing to explore this reality. (An aspect of Source).
When you make a conscious decision to meditate and open up to Love you will find your whole world changing. Whenever someone makes the decision to utilize the energies of Love in all their creative choices they will find themselves awakening to the Truth of Who They Are without effort.
As a person masters their fears and opens up again to their true Loving Nature they will find themselves being able to perceive the world from the big picture place. When coming from this place a person will have no problem knowing what to do or say in any situation that will Serve the Highest and Greatest Good of all concerned.
To love is the easiest thing in the world. It is the most powerful creative force you can utilize in your day-to-day life's choices.
When like-minded people who are motivated by love combine their energies they have a powerful ability to channel these higher energies to the whole planetary consciousness.
Those within the planetary consciousness, who are controlled by fear at this time, will find it difficult to even sense and feel these energies. But there are many in this world that are open to receiving the energies of love and growing in their awareness of who they are and their world as a result. (A judgmental person destroys their ability to love and to be loved.)
It is these people of like mind, who choose to be motivated by love, who will find as their energies increase, their ability to affect their personal lives and everyone around them in a powerful positive loving way. We teach by example and attract others who have similar energies to our own. Therefore when we are peaceful, loving and aware, those who wish to become the same way will ask how this serenity can be achieved.
Change can only take place in an individual when they seek it themselves. To try and force another to adopt our choices only results in them becoming even more entrenched in their old, negative ways.
How to change the world
The way to effect change in this world without having conflict with anyone else is simply to start being a loving person. Seek out other people of like mind and combine your energies and as that happens your Mini Collective Consciousness, which resides in the greater fragmented planetary consciousness of this planet will grow. As it grows it will attract to it more beings and as this happens the planetary fragmentation will diminish.
As mentioned earlier each person who walks down this path will find that everyone who is linked to them will be affected by the choices they are making to be a loving person. As we are all linked our thoughts are radiated out into our world every moment of our existence. Our thoughts are picked up by everyone in our experience.
As your consciousness or energy field becomes more Loving and as a consequence more powerful, your ability to influence others without you even talking to them will increase greatly. You will notice others around you starting to become more aware and interested in becoming aware because of the changes they see in you. They will express their interest to understand. They will open their own doors. When this happens you will find that person being receptive to your Truths. It is important though to make sure these people understand these are your Truths and if they desire to become aware or empowered they have to find their own Truth.
Over the years I have seen this happen over and over with people I have worked with. More often than not it amazes them how their own family members and friends will start shifting how they think simply because they have.
We are all connected; we are all part of the collective consciousness on this planet and our thoughts which are energy affect all life in this world.
The old saying, if you want to change the world change yourself has a lot of truth to it. Every loving choice that you make enhances the life force and light in this world. Every fearful choice depletes the life force and light in this world. The greatest way to teach is through being a living example of the truth of who you are, a loving being.
So I invite you to join our Mini Collective Consciousness of Love and Light and combine your energies with others of like mind so that we can become powerful examples of loving beings for all of our brothers and sisters who are asleep spiritually at this time.
