This is what Soul Would Say:
Earth has an ego and a soul – just like we do. The massacres in Boston yesterday, were the ego – an ego we are ALL responsible for. The Ego wants to make a point, it wants to be RIGHT it wants to “win” and it wants to “own” the material. This makes absolutely no sense at all. Does it make sense to you? Ask yourself the hard questions. It won’t hurt.
Often it takes a catastrophic event to remind us that we are all a part of a living cell; a macro-cosmic environment which is our planet. Just as with our human-physiological selves(the microcosmic version of earth) when one system is out of whack, the whole thing goes a little screwy. The planet has an ego just like we do…and it has a Soul. Yesterday Boston saw another ugly display of Ego trying to make a point about something unimportant and completely motivated by fear. This is a difficult time of change.
The fact is that right now the energetic system of our planet is readjusting, and we are seeing all sorts of strange happenings personally and globally. Bombs at the Boston Marathon, epidemics of cancer, teen suicide, grown men shooting children in the face for wanting to go to school, mental illness at an all time incredible high. The planet is sick. Did you know nearly 850,000 people this year alone will kill themselves?
We have incredible strength and power in our thoughts. What you think will be created. I not only believe it, but when my Ego is quiet enough, when I am diligent in my spiritual practice, I can even work with this idea directly. We all can. It’s not some special magical power like a super hero or religious leader that only special people get. It is a power which resides equally within each of us. The choices you make will directly implicate how much of this power you become aware and connected to.
That is why there is so much power in prayer – no matter what your belief system; prayer is universal.
Information and a relatability between each other is also emerging at a furious pace. We need to both acknowledge and use our “powers” as soon as possible.
Beyond how you eat and and whether or not you do yoga, this power is accessible and available to you. You just have to decide it really. The amazing thing is that once you know how to access your own, then you can directly help the entire planet. We all can. One person – one light at a time. Quantum physics is constantly re-proving how far reaching the implications of a simple single thought can be in epic detail. It’s really an amazing age to be living in.
But we have so much tragedy. That’s the way it is when things change. Similar to the 60’s when an energetic shift in consciousness caused tremendous social upheaval as well. It amazes me how we still idealize the 60’s in our popular media, with it’s flowers and love, cool beads, music, sexual liberation and civil rights – often forgetting that these great acts of creation, either ideological or artistic, were propagated by tremendous national and international pain and fear. The 60’s and 70’s were a precursor to what is happening now, and they were chalk full of tragedy and drama and horrifying events. The death’s of great minds and leaders, social upheavals – again a readjustment period. We are experiencing a stepped up version of this time in our current circumstance I believe.
Now events are much more powerful and pervasive. We have a physically globally connected singular world mind, in the form of the internet. Its consequences and effects are beyond anything we could ever have imagined and we are just at the very tip of something that is inclining us to learn how closely connected to all of the energies around us that we really are.
Some people are starting to understand the implications of this and are hopping on the bus with both feet towards a fearless conscious evolution. This emergent understanding of ourselves as energetic spiritual beings, connected in every way to and from our creative source, far supersedes anything religion has ever attempted to delve into. Why? Because weren’t ready. Learning anything, I have been taught with horses, is like learning the alphabet. You cannot make too many words if you skip learning certain letters. You need the whole alphabet to make sentences. And so, now, we have access to the whole alphabet, and we are starting to write our own stories.
The only things that will last are the things we attach to the only aspect of existence that doesn’t change – and that is our own personal consciousness. Our energy. Our US-ness. The I AM part of you. Even if you have never heard this, I bet somewhere inside of you this makes some weird kind of unrelatable sense. That’s the way deep truth feels. Intangible but solid.
Boston was a horrible tragedy. But so are the countless deaths in Afghanistan every day. There are many hundreds if not many thousands of children who have watched their own fathers die there, as did the little 8 year old boy who sadly experienced this with his own father at the Boston Marathon Bombings. Are those fathers less important to their children? I don’t think so. We just need to stop killing each other.
I am going away for a few days to be alone. It will be good to clear my mind. I like to meditate and gather my energies back when I have a chance to do this – unplug from technology and remember what I feel like – unhindered.
I am very lucky in my life to have the help and support of an incredible Tribe. My tribe is very special. We have consciously chosen one another. We choose to be honest and supportive. We help each other be brave and fearless in our life choices, and we mostly spend time reminding each other of who we really are.
Everyone needs a tribe. Ego hates my tribe. When I “hang with my tribe”, in whatever form it is in that day, ego is mighty quiet.
He wouldn’t get a word in edgewise over the cackling anyway.
